Extract: A Kristen Wiig Review

Forget what you know about movies, and forget what you know about movie reviews. This one from Mike Judge has nothing in the book of conventions. I had the chance to watch "Extract" in French, but I don't speak any French, so recently, I finally saw it in English.

When it comes to the filmmaking of Mike Judge, of course I was a fan of "Office Space," "King of the Hill," "Beavis and Butthead," and even "Idiocracy." So I greatly awaited what this film had to offer.

The premise is Jason Bateman is trying to fuck Mila Kunis :P
So far off to a good start.

However, Jason Bateman is sadly married to a coupon designer named Kristen Wiig. (Forget character names).
A Wife is a Horrible Cockblock
 The plot thickens like brownie batter as Jason Bateman takes advice from hairy Ben Affleck and plans to have Kristen Wiig sleep with Ethan from 90210, otherwise known as the sweatshirt wearing bonehead in the photo above, Dustin Milligan.Therefore, if Kristen Wiig sleeps with Dustin Milligan, Jason Bateman won't feel guilty about sleeping with Mila Kunis.

Confused yet?

Hairy Ben Affleck
Anyway, the plan backfires when it turns out Kristen Wiig is secretly a loose cannon vagina and sleeps with Dustin over and over like a conveyer belt (get it, in an out?). It is no surprise that she makes hairy Ben Affleck look like an idiot. There are some other characters involved, but they are not important.

Some other reviews online (from some dude named Ebert) read that it was just too unbelievable for Kristen Wiig to sleep with Dustin Milligan because he was a dirty pool boy. Yes, it is true. He was a dirty pool boy, and maybe it was too much for them to do it 15 times a weekend :&
Watch Kristen Wiig do a dumb guy.


In Conclusion:
This is not Mike Judge's best film. Imagine "Office Space" set in a factory. It is not his funniest, but it is worth watching once, and then, it is worth watching twice where you find yourself laughing at it, and not with it.
As long as you're laughing.

And F**k Sweatpants Too

  4. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it, but like you said, it's one of those films you only feel like watching once. dustin milligan was actually the sole reason why I stopped at this film while zapping tv channels sometime ago, yep. dayum, how I wish he could be *my* dirty, sweaty pool boy (don't tell chace).

"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

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
