Twilight and Rockclimbings

worst clown name ever

while i had my reservations about watching a movie aimed squarely at 15 year old girls, i sometimes like to watch popular films so i can remind myself why i hate everyone (aside from all the perfectly rational objective reasons i garnered from my 37th reading of Ayn Rand’s Art Deco Rape Classic The Fountainhead).

for those who haven’t seen it, Twilight is a story about a family of clowns with super-powers who live with regular people outside the colorful confines of the circus.  but rather than just transfix us with their silly antics (HOW DID THEY FIT ALL THOSE CLOWNS INTO THAT RANGE ROVER???!!!???), the central tension of the film is how clown/human love is ruined by the agonies of repressed sexual desire.  it felt like watching a million clowns unsuccessfully trying to grab an out-of-control (i.e. “wacky”) water-hose.

in clown language that means 😦

anyhow.  i learned so much from the first film that i just had to see the follow-up New Moon. it was a mixed bag for me really.  on the down side, it turned out to be the exact same film as Twilight, but they just replaced clowns with werewolves.  on the upside – and this might be the most important thing ever –  i learned how to spot werewolves:

pants commercial? nope. werewolves from New Moon

werewolves don’t wear shirts.

which means…

climbing IS inherently dangerous.

twice over.

i was almost killed by a hoard of 15yr old girls… and my wife and step mother… when i laughed out loud… often… at the first twilight movie.

i fear i would not survive a second.

unfortunately, i REALLY want to see the second one since i hardly laugh at ‘funny’ movies… it is really something special that a movie like this can give an old man the gigglefits… you know, laughter… best remedy n shit.
