Rent: Yet Another MeView

Yes, it was only a matter of time. I need to put in my 1.99999 cents. Anyway, you've read the reviews. Seems like the loser critics are all beside themselves. They're torn. Some dig it, and others loathe it. Care to know why? They're not Rentheads. Technically, neither am I. Don't get me wrong, I loved the show. Wait wait. Let me back up. I loved the music after I watched the show in NYC. See...since my hearing absolutely sucks...I really couldn't hear what the hell they were saying on stage...so I could never fully appreciate it. And my seat wasn't too far from the stage. It wasn't orchestra level, but not too far from it. The wife and I saw it less than a year ago. Anyway, back to whatever it was that I was talking about earlier. The movie. I dug it. The wife dug it. Although, I must say that I was a little perplexed that the movie's opening is fairly different from the show. Dramatically different? IMHO, yeah. I was a little taken back that some of lyrics that were once intended to be sung by the characters became spoke word text. However, let's get down to reality here people, it's an adaptation. Come off your high horses. Very few movie adaptations ever fully follow the original sources. You sick sad people probably go to these things just so that you have something new to pick apart. Grease didn't directly follow the original show either...at least that's what I heard once. Here's my take on it without spoilers. If someone were to tell you that a popular Broadway show was touring to your town's small theater and most of the original cast would be there to perform and the tickets would only cost you $9 a head? What would you do? I think I made my point.
Oh...one other thing...
Kudos to the MPAA (not something that I say all that often) for having the moxy to give this film a PG-13 rating. When was the last time you saw a movie that dropped the F-word (not "free" in case you wondering) twice and it did not get an "R"? I thought you could only get away with saying it once to obtain a PG-13. Must remind myself of this fact when I actually sit down to write my screenplay (one of these years).

More Veronica Mars Info

Hi All,

I was super pissed this past Wednesday when I had discovered that my local UPN affiliate took it upon itself to...oh...postpone my show to televise...
The Sixers?!? WTF?!?

Anyway, I managed to get a copy of the show sent to my ReplayTV and now I'm up to speed. For those of you who actually watch the show and are getting really frustrated that your browsers can't display the alternate ending from the http://www.aol.com/veronicamars site...try this link:

New Sites, New Domains, Nothing Will Ever Be The Same

I picked up a bunch of free domains, thanks to Belgium. I now own drsarcasm.be, blogfrog.be, AlexisZaroff.be, Zaroff.be (not Be.a.Zaroff, because we're an selective group) and badservice.be. Pictures of Alexis will be scattered all around drsarcasm.com, MeredithZaroff.com, and AlexisZaroff.be. (Whoa Jay! Are you simulcasting your wife's pregnancy on multiple sites? I never realized the fascinating life that you lead! I mean, gee wiz...if you keep this up...you may triple the number the hits to your family of sites...I mean, you may go from 1 hit to 3 potential hits each week...and 2 of them may not even be your own. Oh the possibilities!!!) I am also pysched about getting another site off the ground: badservice.be (aka Dr. Sarcasm Presents "The Bad Service Blog").

The premise of The Bad Service Blog goes a lil' somethin' like dis:

I want to create a site that will give the everyday person a chance to vent about a business that has treated him or her poorly. It could be about a short changing incident at the local convenience store or the really rude manager at the big mall department store. While I feel that reporting bad service to the BBB is a novel idea, they don't seem to have a full listing of businesses that have constantly screwed the customer...and if they do...I don't think it's that easy to find...or I wouldn't be doing this myself. Reseller Ratings is a great idea, but I want to a create a site that will allow anyone to talk about any kind of commercial business such as rotten waitresses, "lemon" used cars, certain portable devices that lose their battery charge after 15 minutes of use, etc. I also plan to link to major news stories (on the web) in regards to large businesses that have potentially engaged in wrong doing based practices towards consumers. If I hear about a relevant class action lawsuit, I plan to link it as well. Again, I want to stress that this is an "EVERYONE" site...and I want to give anyone the ability to speak his or her mind as long as it does not get me in trouble with my future host's terms of service. Sounds really exciting now, doesn't? You know it does, Beeeyatcch!

Lastly, I plan that JasonZaroff.com will come into fruition..............................
.....................................sometime in 2006. Keep waiting by the phone, so you'll be able to call home about it once it arrives. After all, Hanukkah Harry can't deliver all these great gifts that fast.
