Random Thoughts: Because…Well You Know

Tuesday morning seems like a perfect time to delve into some random thoughts.


Now that I’ve seen The Hangover, the next movie that I am required by law to see has to be Up. I’ve heard it’s pretty much the best thing in the history of mankind. Reviews (from friends, not actual movie reviewers) range from “bad ass” to “the cutest movie I have ever seen.” I think some people say that they cried during the movie. People who don’t normally cry during movies are telling me this. I find that to be awkward. I need to see this movie.


Speaking of The Hangover. I realized after I posted that I left one of the best aspects of the movie out of my little review.

Unlike the majority of other Las Vegas movies that deal exclusively with the allure of gambling, The Hangover focuses on the universal experience that nearly everyone who travels to Sin city has. Ridiculous experiences that you could have in no other city, long and crazy nights followed by hazy mornings spent trying to remember what occurred and how it happened, incredible gambling runs (that you sometimes can’t remember), and the ultimate decision to never, ever, ever reveal the true goings on to anyone who wasn’t in attendance in the first place. That is the Las Vegas experience. The Hangover embellishes all of the stories of those who have been to Las Vegas, and then pumps it full of HGH and Red Bull. It’s fun to watch because you are secretly reliving your own stories as you watch the antics of the characters.

Maybe this is why I loved the movie but felt slightly unsettled after watching it.


In the Stanley Cup finals, I found myself cheering for Sid the Kid. Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely hate the Pittsburgh Penguins. I’m a Rangers fan, so I’m mandated to hate any and all teams who are capable of putting things together at the end of the year better than my obviously flawed Rangers teams. That being said, I gravitate towards wanting the gigantic young stars of the day to succeed. I think it has something to do with wanting to be able to tell my kids, “yea, I saw (insert player name) play when he was in his prime.” When young players like Crosby win championships it just adds to their legacies.

It was the same deal with the NBA playoffs. I’m a Knicks fan, but the Knicks are still a couple of seasons away from being able to contend, so I found myself jumping on the Cavs bandwagon because I wanted soon to be New York Knick captain Lebron James to succeed.

This could also have to do with my hatred for the Magic and Lakers in the NBA, and the Red Wings in the NHL.


My name is Marc, and I use Axe bodywash. And I’m not even ashamed to admit it anymore. That stuff smells FANTASTIC. I’m not committed to any specific body wash, or deodorant, or toothpaste. I guess you could say I am a bit of a sloot when it comes to toiletries. I don’t stick with one mate. I’m a toiletry polygamist. So when I go to CVS, I let the toiletries dance up on me and just sort of grab whatever catches my eye. Axe bodywash caught my eye. Then I went home and used it, and oh man, that stuff is good. I think I’m ready to turn over a new leaf and just go with Axe bodywash from now on. The only problem; I feel like a teenager when I use it. So much so that I bought a bottle of Old Spice body wash as an insurance policy in case the knowledge that I was using a product that by all accounts I am too old to use starts to overwhelm me.


If Brett Favre becomes a Minnesota Viking he deserves to be punched in the mouth by each and every Green Bay Packer fan in the United States and beyond.


I’m pretty sure the order of “TV shows that I lost track of that I will watch back to back to back to etc. until i’ve caught up” goes as follows:

1) Most recent season of Heroes
2) Most recent season of The Office
3) Most recent season of 30 Rock
4) The last 4 seasons of Lost



That’s all for now. Heading to Barns and Noble to look for a good book or two. Fielding suggestions.

  2. Word on Favre.

    Move “Lost” to the top of that list. Cause it’ll probably take until January to catch up, and it’s freaking worth it 🙂
