Monday notes.

Know what my Baby is desperately lacking? 1. Mother--Glenn Danzig (and how the hell I am only realizing that now is beyond me. Must. Rectify. Immediately.) 2. Six Underground--Sneaker Pimps (but only because fucking iTunes doesn't carry the album. Bastids.) I know there are more, but those are the songs that sprang to mind while I was working out today. Know what I hate spending money on? Socks. I don't know why, but I feel like they should be free. I hate that I have to pay any amount for them. I got 10 pairs today for $15, and I'm pissed that $15 is gone forever, even though I can now go a solid week without washing socks and individual toes are free of the threat of hole-provoked nudity for another, oh, six months. Hm. I think that's it for now. Oh no, wait, know what I am now officially desperate to see? Byron, the BBC biopic starring the deliciously delicious Jonny Lee Miller being, well, Byronic and devilish-bad. Wheeeeee! Doesn't come on until Saturday, though. Damn. Also, here, the new Bond. So yum. And so that it cannot be said that I discriminate in my tastes for the tasty, here is someone who should have been considered for the role for his classy-sexiness: Chewy. Come to think of it, he should maybe get a post of his own...

You know I had to come with a cool, tall glass of haterade. I am not feeling the new Bond.

Maybe fans felt this way when Roger Moore took over the role. Since I grew up with Roger Moore as Bond it took me a while to get used to seeing Sean Connery as Bond (once my family was significantly advanced enough to have a VCR). Now that I'm older (but not wiser), I can see the continuity in the Bond line except for Roger Moore.

Superficially, this new cat seems just as out of step. But, the proof is in the pudding, right? I reserve judgement until I see the next movie.

"Shaken, not stirred." Damn, right.

I don't know how I feel about the new bond. I got really really really ... and I mean really ... attached to Pierce Brosnan as *THE* double oh seven.

I was not feeling the new Bond, till I got a look at him with his hair slicked back, doing his "Bond stance" and then I got it. *Really* got it.

He's gonna do just fine.

Oh wait, can you not get Danzig on iTunes? Because that would suck.

Do you want me to e-mail you Danzig because I've got that. It's a hella lot of fun to listen to at work.

Oh and the little hat for your iPod is scary cute. I'd say that my iPod should have one -- but it's named Sexy Beast -- so a cute little hat is a bad idea.

As for the new Bond, I'll wait and see for his first movie. But I do like the fact that he looks slightly thugged-out instead of smooth and polished.

Carlos: oh come now; he'll do just fine (see Keidra, below. If he's got the ladies down, he's got *it*)

Death: Thank you bunches! Got it, and will try to download it laters.

Stolie: You know, I never loved pierce as bond, but i did love him in thomas crown. weird, huh?

Keidra: I actually haven't looked for danzig there yet, but will tuesday morning. they better have it or i'll be pissed.

Viv: thanks lady! you have it via iTunes? because if you got it there then i could just do that, too. gotta love the iTunes.

I didn't buy Danzig on iTunes. We had it as an mp3 before I discovered the joy of iTunes. You still interested?

That's okay, thanks. Mr. D sent me an MP3 too.

I don't know that I like the new Bond yet but we shall see. I've read more than a few articles ripping him apart, poor dear. Who knew being named the new Bond could cause such turmoil? Oh, I guess we can ask Timothy Dalton that.
I had to laugh at Byronic. Put an "mo" after the "y" and there you have the ex-hub's nickname. Ahhh. Hehe.

Viv: I like you, but I'm gonna get you. Bond should not be thugged out. That's the point. He should be unreproachably (did I just make that up?) smooth. Bond is not hip-hop and Cristal. He's retro-lounge and martinis. Inhumanly cool.

Mary: Bond is one the most iconic characters in cinema history. What other character has enjoyed a career this long? Anyone stepping into a role of thsi nature will not please everyone and will get a public shellacking for the effort. (see: Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, even though he was terrible in the role).

Carlos when I say thugged out, I don't mean the Cristal-swilling, hip-hop boys. I mean someone with a bit more of a sense of danger than suave. If you read Ian Fleming's books, Bond's not a nice man. He's also not that smooth. Connery's Bond was pretty close to that vision and I'm hoping that we'll get back to that instead of the invisible cars and ice castles. But that's just me. I like my Bond with a rougher edge.
