Mistake No. 3

ModFab has a beautifully felt post up on Boy George's recent drug arrest. If you are like me and will always always love Mr. George O'Dowd, an irreplaceable pop-culture icon, you should read it now.

I don't know where else to post this, so i'll post it here where nobody else has replied.

Over at The Hot Blog I kind of exploded at two people (Blustealer and PandaBear) who were incomprehensively rude to me on the subject of Phillip Seymour Hoffman!

I made an off-the-cuff comment about Hoffman not being worthy of all his praise (it amounted to three words) and one of the replies was something along the lines of "Why don't you see Capote before you go disrespecting Hoffman"

I was annoyed because they were saying this yet the film isn't out here for months (and its only been out for 1.5 weeks in ltd released over there!) and apparently you need to see every movie every person has ever made before you can comment on them.

Then they went hyperbole central and demanded I explain to them my crazy comments. Then I lost it a bit. I would've gone much worse but it's so irrelevant.


Boy George should've stayed in the 80s where he was a legend.



um. er no. Boy has done plenty of good work since. The Martyr Mantras CD is nearly as good as anything Culture Club ever did. And Taboo is a great score for a musical.

that's all.

people @ the hot blog do get worked up, don't they?
