Re: “Emerald Bile: The Cripple of Inishmaan

I think I must have seen a different play than you. I've been twice now, before and after opening and saw a play with great heart, where humor and tears are so intertwined that you are sometimes still laughing when you realize the heart has been yanked out of you. The acting is stellar with Daniel giving life and soul to Billy, Sarah Green providing sass and swearing as his crush Helen and an exceedingly funny and fine supporting cast.

Every one of the characters has a depth to them and sides that the audience has to pay attention to see. It's not a bit of fluff, but a story of pain and a great love that too often has difficulty showing itself. I'd advise you to go back again with less prejudice and more heart and you will see why the play gets a standing ovation every show.

Re: “John Turturro's Fading Gigolo Is Inexplicably and Irretrievably Terrible

It's not a perfect film, but it's quite good. Your opinions are of course valid, but I just saw the film tonight with an average audience, and we applauded at the end - there is some vagueness as you suggest, but to a reasonably attentive film goer, most of your concerns are answered, albeit subtly, in the screenplay: Murray is amplifying his dermatologist's wishes to forward his own agenda (you missed that?) so, no, she's not searching Craig's List. Avigal is conflicted, but is seeking exactly what she gets, which is what she needs, from "Virgil," who is has set up a massage table before Avigal's arrival, and therefore has communicated with Murray - reasonable clues are given you, but not spoonfed.

Sexpots? That seems sexist; both Sharon Stone and Sofia Vergara were given worthy acting challenges and acquitted themselves admirably; there is a layer of "sexpot" facade to both characters, I suppose; did you miss the vulnerable "first-date" scene with Stone & Turturro, or the intimacy and discomfort between Vergara and Stone?

There's no reason you have to love this movie, but the questions you ask suggest that either you were distracted when you saw it, or you are unfamiliar with the unspoken grammar of human relationships.

Re: “Listen: An Extremely Sad Version of Pharrell's "Happy"

"...feeds into the somewhat harmful American obsession with happiness..."

*facepalm* What the hell? "Happy" is a breath of fresh air in an industry thriving on negativity. I've read so much backwards idiocy regarding this song lately. It's absolutely mind-numbing.

Re: “Nirvana's In Utero "2013 Mix" Examined Song by Song

Interestingly, I actually own the original 1993 Albini Mix on vinyl. It is available, though expensive (in most cases). You see, what happened was that back in 2007 a German pressing of the album accidentally swapped the "standard" mix with the original Albini. So they were sent out all over Europe and Canada. I ordered mine from Ontario cheap. The local record store owner did not know it was an Albini (they are not labeled, after all).
Here's a link to one on ebay:

In Utero is my favorite album and, after having listened to all editions, I think the original 1993 Albini is the best. Followed by the 2013 mix.

NY based singer Gracie Terzian also does a badass blues rework with ukulele harp (which is one instrument and apparently exists outside of my LOTR dreams) of Happy called 'Not Happy'. Worth a listen for sure.

Re: “What's the Noah "Controversy" Really About?

You said--"If a writer can't get something truly uplifting and exciting out of all the hair raising life events in the Bible, maybe the writer needs to ask God to explain the Bible to the writer. God is happy to reach out to people and does it all the time. His Holy Spirit explains the Bible all the time to people that ask for that." How do you know the Holy Spirit didn't reach out and inspire Darren Aronofsky?

Re: “The Different Kinds of Female Action Stars: Scarlett Johansson vs. Gina Carano

GC has improved immensely in "In the Blood." Those were no crocodile tears… I really felt her helplessness in the hospital scenes..jumping to different hospitals w/ no trace of her husband…. It was believable at the same time...No female looks as sensual and believable than GC… but her delivery of the fight scenes are amazing….She looks just a bit heavier than when she was as an MMA but I prefer to see women in movies that resemble what "real women" truly look, she's just a little bit more buff than regular women… but at least not the "skinny model look," women who do not represent the general population….. She is definitely my favorite female action star
