Persnickity Stuff: Folks I'm Learning To Hate

You know, my persnickity rants from a month ago worked out so well, I had to do it again. Actually I had some of this in the holster a week or so ago. I'm not liking any of these people any better so...


Jude Law- Little guys like this have always gotten in my craw. The diminutive Englishman has certainly eased himself into a lot of movies of late. To me, he always strikes a bland, self-satisfied presence. In short, I can see him acting. Hollywood's never going to give up on him however. Of course, he'll star in some "oscar-worthy" turn as some war hero who loses stuff and then has to navigate his stump to roll down a valley to save his platoon.



Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn- Oh, I get it. Take two morons with so-so careers, put them together, they take on the strength of one viable box office entity. Phooey. I did have to laugh their Rolling Stone cover. It said something like, "Not since Belushi and Aykroyd..." What? Not since, what? They didn't answer that question--but I do/does/can. These guys can't compare to John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd and they never will.

Usher- Get a load of this total jerk. See what happens when you spend your 15th birthday under the tutelege of P. Diddy. What seemed "wild" and "exciting" then pretty much translates into a narcissitic young men with 15 screws loose. First off, not a fan of his singing voice. He has an odd shaped head too. What's worse, I think he believes he's Marvin Gaye. Has he listened to Marvin Gaye? Usher's little warblings can't touch him. Not surprisingly, rumor has it that Usher's affairs in amore are of the mind bending, stomach turning variety. Right now, he's dating a "video vixen" named, Karrine "Supahead" Steffans. She sounds like one class act...


Joe Simpson- It was when I saw footage of Joe and Ryan Cabrera tooling around town I noticed something: Joe Simpson is a raging jackass. I caught a gander at him sauntering around thinking he's hi-fi and I got incensed. Just how did this thing become so important? And what happened to the sensible, no-nonsense Joe Simpson we first got to know? Sadly that Joe Simpson is history, replaced by a reptilian, glad-handing SOB who's probably going to get his own reality series before it's all over. Disgusting...


Matthew Fox, yep Uncle Charlie from Party of Five. Speaking of Party of Five did that show implode or what? Anyway, it seems that Fox has cultivated an attitude about Lost's treatment in the media compared to Desperate Housewives. Mmm, let's see--stuff a sock in your pie hole? How can this be a mystery. Desperate Housewives is about hot chicks and Lost is Wolf, the Stepdad, the guy from Oz and one of the urchins from Lord of the Rings. Really Lost is one bad plot line from being cancelled, and this fool's complaining. Fox wasn't doing a whole heck of a lot in the "down time" between POF and Lost. *Coughs* whiner...
