Excerpt from a really serious, important conversation about film.

Ashley: i wonder if you could gross out the baristas just by ordering something like that. “caramel macchiato but leave room for sugar please”
me: they’d probably suspect you were turning into a fly like jeff goldblum
Ashley: never seen it
me: ah well, when he first starts changing he puts like 9 scoops of sugar in his coffee and makes a scene in a restaurant about how much he wants a cannoli. insects like sugar, yum yum
Ashley: does he also eat poop?
me: no it’s mostly donuts and orange crush, which doesn’t sound particularly disturbing but somehow is during the movie
Ashley: well that’s not very realistic at all is it? they should remake it darker, recast
me: it’s dark
Ashley: darker still
me: i think they are remaking it, actually. even though it was already a remake. i dunno who with though
Ashley: christian bale! he actually ate poop for a whole month before filming
me: you know he’s gonna be the adult john connor in the next terminator movie….and right now he’s actually fighting robots. such dedication!
Ashley: christian bale traveled through time to prepare for the role
me: he brought back his future self, who will be playing older john connor

    So I randomly saw some sex scene from The Fly (or at least some other creepy thing with Jeff Goldblum) when I was like 12. I think I was scarred for life. And though I love doughnuts, there is definitely gross-ness potential there.

    No he wasn’t really in a remake of The Fly.

    But he did really cut off his thumb for The Prestige. It’s actually a fake one now. Also he totally murdered someone before they made American Psycho, just to see what it was like.

    You girls, leave my Patty and my Christian Bale alone! But that part about bat shampoo, that’s true. That was on E! yesterday.

    Question: Is bat shampoo made of bats or for bat use?

    Well Chelsea, if you don’t know, I’m not going to tell you.

    i thought bat shampoo was actually bat guano. it has lots of moisturizing and restorative properties.
