The Building Blocks of Mark Wahlberg's Block Building

For starters, I am dealing with the Marky Mark not Mark L. Walberg; although, I was a huge fan of him on “Russian Roulette.”

Here are four random moments in Mark Wahlberg’s chemical analysis, that will determine analytical things about his manly chemistry.

Only picking four……

The Lovely Bones
Jack Salmon



People who have read the book, told me this movie was terrible. However, I thoroughly enjoyed this film. One reason was the eerily striking performance of Stanley Tucci (former s/s award winner), and the other was the subtle grieving nature of Mark Wahlberg. This role had something so honest. He was a father in mourning, and he played that well, but also, there was an intriguing almost mystic quality about his character that he brought into the world(s).

The Italian Job
Charlie Croker



To be honest, I despised this film. I thought it was cocky and smug. I even created a word to describe it, “smocky.” I just felt it was so synthetic, and so many disagree with me, but Mark Wahlberg put on a character that was full of hot air.

Boogie Nights
Eddie Adams/ Dirk Diggler



When I took Business Writing at Edinboro, I pretended to write my project letters to Paul Thomas Anderson, who makes some awesome movies. He and MW went well together. This is a high floor for Mark Wahlberg, and if I called his character in the Italian Job hot air….this role was all HOT DOG. It had depth, and it had strength. He almost made every man on Earth seem incapable.

Fear
David MacCall


I saw this movie in 1998 or 1999. I was around 10 years old, and I knew nothing of the subject material. At the time I thought his freaked-out inner demon character was so righteous. I just remember being in awe of his bizarre madness. I saw it several years later as a teenager, and I didn’t really remember the same level of fascination, but I guess if I ever have to show a movie to preteens, it would be this one.

Other notes:
In 2013 he will star in the “The Brazilian Job,” which as many say sounds more like a wax.

More notes:

Unlike some, I enjoyed “The Other Guys” to an extent.
I did not enjoy him in “The Happening.”
“The Perfect Storm” could have been better.
I have never seen “Invincible” and many others.
He had an awesome scene at the end of “The Departed.”

QATFYG:
Who wants to throw around some more Mark Wahlberg moments?

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!

Episode 2: Authority Always Wins Well here we are again, time to sink our twin hard-ons into the new episode! Before I get into the thick of things, again I must let you know HERE BE MASSIVE SPOILERS. And I’m going to recap this by the characters instead of a timeline account, because not much happens in this episode.
