+  Clusterfluff ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s — yum.  If you like fluffernutter sandwiches, you’ll probably like Clusterfluff.  PB ice cream with swirls of peanut butter and marshmallow and chunks of peanuts and caramel.  I accidentally melted a pint of it today while grocery shopping and running errands.  Fortunately for me, is refroze fairly well 🙂

–  What happened in Norway is terrible.

–  Seriously, American politicians?  

–  A person who had a large impact on American politics and foreign policy in terms of use of the military for humanitarian aid died over the weekend.  But since he didn’t OD or get headlines at TMZ, very few people seem to have noticed.

+  Friends with Benefits wasn’t bad.  Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake have pretty good chemistry on screen.  The repeated use of a flash mob?  Eh.  The editing was a little choppy, too.  But it was mildly entertaining and a good way to avoid being outside in 110F weather.  

–  Straw Dogs remake?  Why?  The trailer alone is full of offensive, sexist, ugly tropes.  Country > city. And yet the country is full of losers leading disappointed/disappointing lives.  Education = effete.  Critical wife = bitchy, deserves to be punished.  Being fired for being an asshole always should be responded to with violence.  And attacking your former employer at night with high powered rifles is the most reasonable response.  I think a lot of True Blood fans (women) are going to go see this movie for Alexander Skarsgard, and they are going to be unhappy with the character he plays, who is a redneck rapist.  (I say this because the PR seems to frame his character ambiguously, and when asked about the character, he said it isn’t fundamentally a bad man, just disappointed with how his life has turned out.  Because, y’know, being disappointed with your life makes rape acceptable?)  Yeah, not a movie I’m going to be paying to see, thanks.

 
–  Also, WTF, LJ?
 
–  I’ve watched a couple more episodes of the third season of True Blood.  What a train wreck.  Stick a fork in me, I am done.
