This is going to be one of those rare moments when I get a little serious friends, if you wanna turn back now and wait for our next lighthearted post I won’t hold it against you. The subject for today is death, accidental death due to overindulgence of a recreational substance, to be more precise. Hold hands if you need to, it may get dark…but probably not…

Theres always sadness when a life is lost. Sadly unless its someone famous it rarely makes the news and even then if its a death of natural causes, its usually pushed back to page two. I truly am sorry for the friends and family of the latest life cut short by bad decisions but find it hard to feel sad for someone who had so much and threw it all away for drugs and alcohol.

I’ve heard when you’re famous it’s so easy to get caught up in drugs, everyone wants to be your friend and everyone has something they want you to try and of course you want to fit in so you try whatever’s handed to you and it’s not your fault. I understand that one night it was raining heroin and you got trapped outside your car and I understand that you saw a pile of cocaine and thought it’d be fun to make coke angels face down and I understand that when you are famous and have a toothache the dentist will write you a prescription for almost anything and when you have such easy access to these things accidents happen or knowing these things could potentially kill you, you overindulge and wind up as a cover story for a month.

I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out how to wrap this up and wondering why I even started writing this in the first place. To be honest friends, I have no idea how fame and fortune would impact my life. I like to think I wouldn’t join the ranks of Chris Farley, Shannon Hoon and John Belushi, to name a few in a long list excessive partiers. Maybe I’d live a long life and still be entertaining my fans well into my seventies and eighties, like Betty White and Morgan Freeman, or maybe I’d travel down that other road where, to paraphrase Marilyn Manson, “you can be drowning in a sea of liquor, wash up on a beach made of cocaine and the sky is made of LSD”, or maybe I’d be like Willie Nelson and smoke the marijuana, after all I don’t recall anyone ever dying from an overdose of the kind.

Stay entertained friends.



I went into this film thinking there was no way it could live up to the hype. Thankfully I was wrong. If you’ve seen the trailers then you know the plot. Actors playing versions of themselves get together for a party, the rapture happens, people die and the main characters try to survive the apocalypse.

I was concerned that as funny as the trailers were they may have given away all the laughs, again I was wrong. This film hits the ground running and keeps the laughs coming for the nearly two hour race to the end. I warn you friends, if you don’t enjoy low brow humor, this is not the film for you. If you enjoy movies about drug use, masturbatory discussions and demons, then I strongly suggest you go see this film. To any of you potheads out there, this is the film to get baked and go see.

I thought the actors did a great job of poking fun at themselves and each other. I never felt that any of them were trying to one up the others and the movie really felt as if a group of friends were dealing with the end of the world in the best way they knew how. There are a lot of actors with cameos in this film but Michael Cera steals every scene he is in.

This is one of the funniest films I have watched in a while. The entire audience was laughing for the entire film and I can honestly say I have never been in a theater where that has happened. I watched this film at a free screening but would happily go back to pay and watch it again when it opens. That’s how much I enjoyed it.

I hope I’ve given you enough opinion without giving anything away. This Is The End was extremely funny and even had some “what the hell” moments. So to wrap this up, I give This Is The End a very strong: Watch It In Theaters
