REAL TALK – 7/21/09

- Bobby Orr was a better hockey player than Wayne Gretzky. Orr was Babe Ruth, while Gretzky was Ted Williams. A Canadian convinced me of this — it has to be true.

- A friend just saw two episodes of 30 Rock on a plane trip back from Japan. He bought both season sets and now loves Tina Fey. I feel like he’s behind the curve on this.

- Casablanca still rules, Citizen Kane does not. I might make a post to expand on this thought, we’ll see.

- Heaven is overrated if Christina Hendricks and Monica Bellucci aren’t 69ing up there.

- The decline of America is best exemplified by the rise of Megan Fox.

- Ireland would be the perfect country for an alcoholic American who only speaks English to visit alone. Although, one should perhaps brush up on some soccer beforehand.

- When is Harry Potter going to disappear? Surely interest must be running dry? *looks at box office results* Oh. Nevermind.

- Seeing kids who were already much taller than you back in HS — and finding out face-to-neck that they grew even more while in college — is not cool. Tall bastards.

- I mentioned Casablanca – which is pretty much accepted as the most romantic film ever — but it’s idealistic bullshit. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, even though it’s based around such an unrealistic concept, centers around one of the most realistic love stories on film. It’s so brutal.

    - Casablanca will always rule, it does help that it’s set in the best country in the world ;)
    - Christina and Monica are the most beautiful women ever
    - Megan Fox is the trashiest skank ever yet continues to be worshipped by almost every posessor of a penis under the age of 20 plus the older lot on the Internet.
    - you don’t need any soccer knowledge in Ireland, it’s not big there at all. They do like their rugby though, and of course, hurling! But definitely go, it’s awesome.

      Rugby I’m cool with, but hurling? Hrmm. I did not know that was Irish.
