Every Child's Worst Nightmare


Hannibal Lecter...? Michael Myers...?

Oh... no, it's just mom with her creepy face thing.

Trimble Family

I shot these pictures a long time ago, but for one reason or another never got them up on the blog. My good friends Jeff and Amy needed family pictures so we went up to the Utah State Hospital and shot away! They turned out well. Such a cute family.

Gentlemen Broncos

Remember when you saw the previews for this movie and you thought to yourself, "Yeah, that could actually be pretty funny in that non-conventional, Napoleon Dynamite sort of way." Sure, the premise looked bizarre, but with Jemaine Clement from "Flight of the Conchords" the movie had to be decent, right?

No. Not at all. This movie sucks. It's bad enough to make me fear for the career of Jemaine Clement... and Sam Rockwell... and everyone else involved in this movie. Some might call it a train wreck, but a train wreck has so much more to offer. Until now, I'd never watched a movie that made me feel despair. TRUE DESPAIR! The only thing that keeps you watching is the hope that somehow the movie will redeem itself with a moment that gives it all purpose. A moment that makes sense. A moment that pulls your head from under the water, dries you off, and tells you that the torture is over.

But that moment never comes. And so you're left empty, confused, disgusted, and mildly disturbed. The directors, Jared and Jerusha Hess, (what the hell kind of name is Jerusha, anyway?) failed big-time here. When they made Napoleon Dynamite, they hit a base hit. People clapped and smiled and whispered about the potential these two had. They were up and coming stars. With Nacho Libre, they hit a home run. People applauded their efforts as their street-cred grew substantially. They had made a legitimately good movie and, for the most part, were respected. With Gentlemen Broncos, though, they struck out. Their effort was so poor, they've been pushed back into the minor leagues. No more respect. No more fame. No more fortune. I can't see how anyone who has seen this movie will ever want to star in a film made by these people.

What's really sad, though, is that had they tweaked parts of the movie here and there, toned down some scenes, removed others, hired a better screenwriter, etc, the movie could have been decent, if not good. Even with all its strangeness, the potential was there.

I'm not usually a big fan of Jimmy Kimmel's late night talk show but this, my friends, is hilarious.

Why yes, I am a member. Thank you for assuming such. :)


Ramblin' Man

I recently (13 minutes ago) recommitted to the goal of writing in my blog at least once every two days. I've realized that if I don't make/strive to keep this goal, the blog starves. It gets stale like the box of frosted mini wheats (gross) that have been decomposing in my cupboard for three months now - a relic of a fleeting attempt to eat healthy. I don't want my blog to be stale, bland, fibrous. I want a healthy, nutritious blog. Something like a fresh box of fruity pebbles. Thus, the goal.

I'm also changing the blog's name soon. I'd like some help from all of you as to what I should call it, though. I don't need anything tied to my name, i.e. "A Barry (insert adjective here) Blog." And it doesn't really have to be anything clever, even. If you have any ideas - nothing that takes more than a few seconds of thought - throw them down in the comments. I'd really appreciate it. :) I'm thinking along the lines of common sense. I'm pretty commonly sensical. Popsicle.

They don't really rhyme, do they? I know. I've been working hard on my rhymes, though, so I can break through as the first white, mo-mo, late 20's, skilled, suburban rapper. Emphasis on skilled. Guys like this guy and this guy do NOT represent. AGGHH... painful!

Peace to yo mutha...

Shine again...

I can't figure out if these guys are actually trying and are just THAT bad or if this is all supposed to be a parody. Either way, it's really awkwardly funny.

You may remember this from my blog a few weeks ago and wonder if I actively search for songs called "Shine." I assure you that this is only a coincidence.

I do like shiny things, though.
