Subject:The Rob Chronicles Chapter 1131: "Why don't you go fuck yourself?"
Mood: angry

Yeah, that seems about right. On both accounts.

Today was very trying. It was the first day of classes for the new semester at Dowling (The Personally Gay College) and I was decked out in Yankee stuff from head to toe, looking dapper, cute as hell (if I say so myself, fuck-face).

After sitting through an abreviated "Literature Arguments" class, I had about a half-hour, so I went to the bookstore to use Papa's credit card to buy my books. The chubby bookstore girl assists me and I'm carrying all the books I need (except "The Great Gatsby", as I already own it, bitch), and when I reach the counter, I place the books down, the woman rings it up (375 bucks, yikes), and scans the credit card (which, as far as I know, has not been used since I LAST bought textbooks back in September).

It comes up "Cannot Read, please scan again." She does so. Same results. Again. Same results.

I grow frustrated, but I keep my cool with her. She eventually goes "I can't seem to get this to work, sir" and I go "Fuck. Alright, I'll be back." and leave the heap of books on the counter and storm out, surrounded by greasy-hot girls and dumb-looking guinea guys (even though I'm sorta' one of them).

Angry, I call my Sister, who relaxes me a bit. Then I see the cute girl from my CIS class last semester. Looking cute as ever. She's looking right at me. I'm sitting in my car. In a handicapped spot in front of the building. The irony of it all. I'm not handicapped, because I cheat the system. Though my tendonitis is pretty bad, I refuse to acknowledge it or slow me down.

She pulls out her cell phone, and calls someone. I sit there dumbfounded. Realizing how ironic this all is.

I try to find a close spot to the Science Center, but cannot. I drive around back, but find it's for the security douches only. I say fuck it and drive back to where I was, only to realize "Hey, this goes behind the building!"

I drive the small road behind the Science Center, only to come within a few feet of the water, driving onto the grass slightly.

I turn around, drive to the "Performance Arts Center" (lol) and park in there.

I cross the street to the Science Center, but as I approach, the gate closes.

I take that as a sign and say "Fuck it ... I'm outty five thousand." Not aloud, of course, internally. My internal monologue, if you will.

I get in my car, change CDs (Local H to Reel Big Fish's first and still awesome album, "Turn The Radio Off").

I drive very fast, realizing I'm skipping my second class of the day on the very first day of classes. Fuck it. There'll be other classes.

I drive to Sunrise and go right, jonsing for McDonald's, as it's the only thing to drown my "sorrows", lol. I just want a burger. Badly.

I order my food at the Oakdale McDonald's. At the first window (where one pays for their grub), they fuck up my order beyond recognition. I re-order. 8 dollhairs or something.

I get my food, race home, and on the Southern State, I decide to go the long way, all the way to the Park, and take the back roads home. Relaxing. Like in the old days.

It's complicated and annoying days like these that make me wish I had lied to the recruiter.

Anyone else been tempted to buy "Monster Ballads"? With Winger and fucking Scorpions and Queensryche on it?

But I'll DL the tunes instead.

Especially since I'm on a sorta' Nelson kick right now.

Yeah, fuck ya'.

Tomorrow's my last day of Winter classes.

In other news, I have no idea what day the next semester (Spring?) starts. Please God let me have like, a week off.

Yes, for the "SH" film, I still carry wood.

Anyways, stolen like whoa:

You scored as Millennium Falcon (from Star Wars). The world around you is at war. Fortunately you know how to handle that with the greatest of ease. You are one of the best at what you do and no one needs to tell you that. Now if only the droids could be quiet for five seconds.

Coming on December 1, 2005:

Your Ultimate Sci-Fi Profile: which sci-fi crew would you best fit in? The Sequel

To Play THIS:

If Howard was cast to replace what's her name ... fuckin' ... Kirsten Dunst, yeah, I'd be fine. But this DOES NOT WORK. The 3rd film opens with them married already. By this point in "Spiderman" history, Gwen is long fucking dead. And don't get all gay and say "Oh, well, she was cloned, haven't you read the new blah blah" NO, I haven't, because new "Spiderman" sucks cock, with the exception of "Spiderman - Blue", which, this film is not.

Sam Raimi needs to stop fucking up "Spiderman". Go make another piece of shit "Army Of Darkness" flick and collect the monsterous cash you'll get from the fucking dimwits who actually like that movie.

"Spiderman" is too precious to me to see fucked up like this.

This just sucks.

Finally, after 11 years of wondering, saw this movie:

And boy, did it fucking own. I'm not kidding, either. I really like it. The music, the characters, the direction, the production, I loved it all. A fun ass ride all the way through.

Wild stuff, people.

Watched the Golden Globes and am not at all surprised "Brokeback Mountain" won best picture. Everyone is cumming on this movie like it's something they discovered. I'm not an Ang Lee fan. How do you fuck up "Hulk"? HOW!? Somehow, though, he did. Thusly, my interest in a visually beautiful movie is at a low.

My parents, by the way, have been gone for 3 days on their 21-day venture across Florida and into the Gulf of Mexico. Pretty awesome, I guess. 21 days to myself.

Not good. I get paranoid that the dog is alright, because he doesn't seem to drink from his water bowl, but scarfs down the cubies I give him, though they aren't plenty. Then again, it snowed and when he come sin from outside, his face is covered in it sometimes, so, maybe he's eating snow.

He's eating, too, so I guess he's fine. But still. I'm nervous.

Golden Globes = Thumbs down overall. I'll be skipping the Oscars too, because they seem to have run out of talented hosts and decided on John Stewart, a guy I like as an actor, but not as a stand-up or a "political commentary guy" or whatever.

Watched one of my all-time favorite movies yesterday on DVD - "Narc". If you haven't seen it, you're out of your fucking mind, because it's amazing.

See "Tank Girl" and "Narc", kids. That is all.

Subject:The Rob Chronicles Chapter 1118: "More revelations ..."
Mood: amused

I think of/realize the weirdest shit in the mornings, today, 2 topics we all care about:

1) "Star Wars"

2) "Super Mario Brothers"

First off, "Star Wars":

BOTH Obi-Wan and Yoda inform Luke that Darth Vader (then unknown to Luke that the Dark Lord is, in fact, his Daddy) tracked down the Jedi across the galaxy, pwning them and just like, kicking their asses. This, according to "Episode 3", is obviously bullshit. So, the almighty Jedi (the supposed pinnacle of good and justice in the Galaxy) are shown as spin doctors, like modern day politicians, twisting the truth to their own end.

So, in other words, Luke led the Rebellion to war under false pretenses. I know someone will make a Bush joke or whatever, but yeah, it's true. If Luke knew the truth of why his Dad turned, he probably would've been like "Fuck this Jedi shit ..." and joined his Dad.


In "Super Mario Brothers", we were all too excited to be playing a videgame at home to realize something:

What the fuck were Mario and Luigi doing in the Mushroom Kingdom? Why wouldn't they just go back up the pipe they came through to get back to New York? Why stick around? When you look at guys wearing mushrooms on their heads and turtles with fucking wings, you're not gonna' stick around, I'm sorry, that's just fucking nuts.

Conclusion: Mario and Luigi were either dreaming the whole thing (a la "Mario 2") OR they were stupid enough to not kno how to get back meanwhile they just fucking got there.

Okay, think upon that. Comment, discuss, etc.

An open letter to Best Buy:

"Dear Best Buy,

What happened to the good ole' days when a new DVD would come out and you guys would have it for like, 15 bucks on sale for a week or two? Did that go out the window when the gas prices went up? When Sharon went into a coma? When the fuck did that happen?

I just purchased 'Transporter 2' and 'Red Eye', luckily, I had a 15-dollar gift card, which reduced the price. But still, dicks. 19.99 a pop is rough. Niggas be broke these days.

Also, where are your Xbox 360s? Why do you have games but NOT the system? Where's your logic in that?

By March 30th, you better have the 360 readily stocked. The 400-dollar one, too, bitch, not this 300-dollar bullshit. I want the hard drive, the fucking headset, all of it, baby. I'm saving up now, bitch. Get it ready. I want it by the 30th. I'll have a boatload more cash by then.

That is all.

Hearts and kisses,

Rob O, LI, NY.

PS - Fuck you if you don't like Pat Benetar"

Mood: apathetic

That title makes no sense, but yeah, this is about the interview I just had with the GM and the Assistant GM of the Ducks, "The Two Mikes" I call them.

The position: Intern for the Long Island Ducks, in the ticket office. Something I sort've wanted a while now.

The interview: The GM, Mike Hirsch (asshole Jew extraordinaire) commented that he didn't like how I was dressed (track jacket, jeans, boots), meanwhile I keep it casual always.

Same ole' shit. Questions of my "attitude" arose. I don't care. I guess that's what they mean, lol.

My view: Fuck it. If I don't get it, I'll take my music-playing job again and make more than any intern would anyway, and potentially look at another interesting option that was proposed by my (of all people) Podiatrist, in terms of a sports-related job. This one in the MAJOR FUCKING LEAGUES.

The only problem is, it would involve a drive to Queens every day. That's a big fucking hint as to what team I could potentially work for. ;)

Anyhoo, that's about it.

How are you?

Mood: creative

First, my latest YTMND: http://listonn00b.ytmnd.com/ (thanks to Sauce1977 for the pic, which I stole ages ago).

Ten Best Movies I Saw In 2005:

10) "Munich" - Spielberg returns after wading in a shitty mess that was "War of the Worlds" and brings us something beautiful, angry, aggressive. Perfect.

9) "Wedding Crashers" - Funny. Ridiculous. Much needed.

8) "The Exorcism Of Emily Rose" - Invoking dread the likes of which hasn't been done in a while, it has a lot in common thematically, not so much story wise with ...

7) "Dark Water" - Jennifer Connolly is hot. No doubt. But this movie goes beyond with a classy ghost story reminiscent of "The Changeling" and "Ghost Story". Scary, sad, all amazing things for a "horror movie" to have.

6) "Batman Begins" - How perfect can you get? People bitched about a lot of things, but this is as close to perfect as you can get, in terms of superhero film.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
5) "Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance" - Not a 2005 release, but that's not the list, is it? Intricately woven story of revenge and hatred and a kidnapping gone awry. Add it to your Netflix if you're cool.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
4) "Uzumaki" - It's crazy how erect I am for certain Asian films, isn't it? Not a new one, but terrifying, intense, and just fucking awesome. Reminds me of "The Exorcist", but only because the director experiments with some Billy Friedkin cerebral fucks.

3) "The Mission" - Scheduled for remake by Peter Berg (which I'm all for), this is a Chinese gangster movie as told by reality. No high-octane gun battles or car chases, just very realistic gunplay with a simple, yet realistic story.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
2) "High Tension" - I picked this up at Chiller just for the fuck of it. Loved it. Best director debut since John Carpenter with "Assault on Precinct 13".

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
1) "Oldboy" - Saw it in March of 2005. Poo on you if you didn't see this coming. The movie I haven't stopped thinking about since the day I saw it. Once you see it, maybe you'll feel the same way.

Honorable Mentions: "Jarhead", "Walk The Line", "Flightplan".


4) "The Devil's Rejects" - Fuck you, Rob Zombie. Way to let a lifetime fan down.

3) "The Fog" - Rupert Wainright must die. This shit sucked ballz. With a "z".

2) "Alexander" - Blegh. The shittiest story about one of the coolest historical figures ever made.

1) "War Of The Worlds" - Thanks for shitting on 9/11 with your "ode" to it, Steve, well done. *fart noise*

Honorable Mentions: If they sucked this much, they're not worth mentioning.

I've downloaded Kevin Federline's tune "PopZao". Don't ask why. I'm embarassed enough.

It's the worst song I've ever heard in my life. But I can't stop listening to it.

"All-time Favorite Movie Trailers By Rob O."

10) "The Weather Man" (http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/the_weather_man/twm_trailerlrg.html)

9) "The Village" (http://www.apple.com/trailers/touchstone/the_village/large.html)

8) "Spiderman" (The WTC teaser that had the crooks snared between the Towers at the end. Impossible to find now.)

7) "Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban" (http://www.apple.com/trailers/wb/harry_potter-azkaban/teaser_large2.html)

6) "High Tension" (http://lionsgate.arcostream.net/lionsgate/high_tension/ht_trailer_1b_1500Kbps.wmv)

5) "Oldboy" (http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=6775)

4) "Don't Look Now" (impossible to find on-line, if I knew how to upload shit on here, I would, from the DVD)

3) "Narc" (http://us.rd.yahoo.com/movies/trailers/1808396403/1808438144/?http://movies.yahoo.com/mv/mf/frame?theme=minfo&lid=rnv-100-p.1111211-91947,rnv-300-p.1111212-91947,wmv-56-p.1111213-91947,wmv-100-p.1111214-91947,wmv-300-p.1111215-91947,rnv-56-p.1111210-91947,wmv-28-p.1111213-91947&id=1808396403&f=1808396403&mspid=1808438144&type=t)

2) "


It becomes abundantly clear to me that this is a next to impossible feat. The internet, which offers everything to everyone and anything ... suddenly becomes obsolete when it comes to finding some old fucking movie trailers.

How is this possible?

Anyways, I figure it best to quit while ahead and since I found a few, I'd say "Fuck it" and move on, but this sucks.

Do what you will with this list, lol.

Going to see "Munich" at 3 o'clock. Three hours of sweet Jewish revenge.

Mood: amused

Christmas was neat-o. "Call of Cthulhu" is a fantastic and terrifying game, the first to really tackle the Lovecraftian mythos head on.

"Blitz The League" is like "Any Given Sunday", and has LT (my favorite football player of all time) in it, and it, too, is fantastic.


"Solaris" Criterion (the original)
"Insomnia" Criterion (original)
"Aeon Flux Collection"
"Beavis And Butthead Collection" (Beavis edition)
"Dark Blue" (best movie about the 90's made yet)
"Birthday Girl" (awesome)
"Charles Bronson - One Step Beyond" (FOUR Bronson movies on one disc, bitches)
"The French Connection Collection" (two words: Roy fucking Scheider)
"KRUSH GROOVE" (yeah, that's right)
"Escape From NY - Special Edition" (Johnny C in the house)

Took my Mom to see "Wolf Creek" yesterday. It was such a disappointment. I love when films are compared to "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and they aren't even as close to the beauty or brilliance of Tobe Hooper's flick.

Problem 1) I couldn't understand what the fuck they were saying. They're Australian. Sorry.
Problem 2) I couldn't give a shit about these characters in the slightest. Typical dickheads on a "Spring Break" kinda' thing. I see these idiots at school, to see them in movies get butchered is like a Christmas present unto itself.
Problem 3) Moments of intensity or just not intense enough. The camerawork is very "okay, here's how we show this" when it SHOULD BE "Let's see how we can show this in a new way".

The Positives:
- The one girl is super hot. With a great rack.
- The villain is very cheesy, but funny at the same time. And perverted.
- The torture scenes are alright. Albeit ... not brutal enough.

All in all, 1.5 out of 4.

On to Dowling to deal with beurocratic bullshit. I'm sure I spelled that word wrong. Fuck it.
