It sounds great until the DJ starts talking

So my week of Too Much Radio(tm) has been alleviated somewhat by the lovely Lisa (i.e. the other Lisa), who will be your host for Mondo Mundo this Saturday from 1-3 pm. I will most likely use that time to paint, so I will tune in while I work.

In other news, unlike Rakka and Steve Almond (aka "Candy Freak"), I must see Tim Burton's Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. I must! I must! Daddy, I want an Oompa Loompa, too! There's no way I'm missing a Tim Burton/Johnny Depp interpretation of that book, even if the first movie kicked ass--does that one mean this one can't kick ass, too?. Why can't I love two Willy Wonkas, anyway? Will Gene Wilder get upset if I like Johnny Depp's Willy Wonka? (That's assuming I like this movie--the Onion AV Club had a lukewarm review of it.)

hee hee! i really do hope that you like it. i just can't deal with the crushing disappointment if it sucks as bad as i think it's going to. (i've already seen star wars. that was enough disappointment for one year, thanks.)

plus, johnny depp looks all botoxed to hell in the previews. and that scares me.

he does seem a little Michael Jacksonish, doesn't he? hey, at least he's not a Scientologist!

if you knew how close i lived to a scientologist enclave, you'd understand my fear! ;D!

You know Johnny Depp once said:

"America is dumb, it's like a dumb puppy that has big teeth that can bite and hurt you, aggressive,"

I'll go see his movie

i had a dream about this movie after seeing about 3 seconds of the trailer. i was eating some kind of red candy and it made me turn blue. thankfully, the blue faded after a couple minutes.

i think this is a testament to the visual power of the new Charlie and to how traumatized I was by the scene in the original Charlie when the girl turns into a blueberry.
