On Scott Pilgrim (vs. the World)

  1. I'm a demographic. I feel both valued and used.
  2. I'm watching the movie, look down, and notice I'm wearing a "Beware the Blob" t-shirt under a bright green hoodie with rainbow and heart patches on it. It was like I'd come to the movie in costume or something.
  3. I think it would be cool to start dying my hair to match my shirts, but it would probably be more economical just to buy a bunch of ginger-colored shirts. Note: I'm no South Park fan, but god bless them for bringing back ginger. I realize it's derogatory, but now it's really easy to describe what I look like. 
  4. Michael Cera is like the Steve Buscemi of hipster flicks. Note: Buscemi is pronounced boo se me, not boo she me.
  5. I want to be in a band. I'll have to learn some talent or something.
  6. Dude, I told you comic books were awesome.
  7. I want to be called Knives
  8. Any writer can come up with an idea like "A young hipster in a band falls in love with a chick with crazy hair and then has to fight all of her exes, video game style." I would not have believed any writer being capable of making such a preposterous plot rock.
  9. Everyone should have a pee meter.
  10. Yeah, this post has nothing to do with words. Or next to nothing, anyway. You'll get over it, I promise.

the pee meter reference makes me wanna see th' flick. Also, I think "Blades" is MUCH cooler a moniker than "Knives"...

But then again, Snipes as a daywalkin' vamp might have ruin't that name forever...

I'm curious. Why is it called 'ginger', when ginger is yellow?

I think it refers to the color of gingerbread, which of course gets its color from molasses, and not ginger. Never thought about it before, though.
