Stuff to read

Chuck Klosterman does a New York Times piece on the NBA's most loveable weirdo, Gilbert Arenas.

Also, although I haven't seen, nor do I plan to see, the movie Black Snake Moan, Pajiba (a film commentary site I normally detest) rips the film a new rectum in the review. Basically, the reviewer calls it revolting, a fake-artsy soft-core porn filled with racist, sexist, and anti-Southern stereotypes. Which is exactly what I assumed after seeing the trailer. Christina Ricci has always grossed me out- I don't know why she's so revered in indie circles. She can't act, and if you take away her goth image, she's nothing more than another Hollywood surgeried-up anorexic.

Have you read "Sex, Drugs, And Cocoa Puffs"? That was fairly entertaining, though "Fargo Rock City" was awful.

I don't get Christina Ricci either. Esquire did this huge photo spread of her laying on a bed half naked with those oversized cartoon eyes trying to make her appear sexy and alluring, and the only thing I could think of was that she'd look better with a syringe hanging out of her arm.

No, I haven't read that, but I'ved heard it's good.

I bet Christina Ricci is a cutter.
