Okay so as expressed in several locations on this site Joseph Gordon Levitt is pretty cool.
Here is a quick recap of why he’s so cool.
1. He was in “10 things I hate about You.” This is where we found out that he burns, pines and perishes for Bianca Stratford. As well as taking time to learn French does not insue that the girl of your dreams will fall in love with you.
2. Everyone watched “3rd Rock From the Sun.” Where he also was with Larissa Olyenik
3. 500 Days of Summer looks awesome. He plays a greeting card designer who desires to be an architect.
4. He doesn’t go by Joe or Joey, thank you btw.
5. He can do this:
There aren’t many people who can air guitar so well.
The first time I saw this trailer. I initially thought, “Summer is evil”. How can she do this to poor Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He’s the small lad from “10 things I hate about you” who “Pined and Perished” for Bianca Stratford.
And then I realized I can totally relate to Summer. Things do happen and then you should cut your losses and go on. We are young, and I am not a marm. If things suck, staying will only make things worse. And I know I may regret saying this someday, but screw it. That is how I feel right now.
And a story about love seems better than a love story.
Also I love how they filmed in LA and didn’t make it a joke. I actually do love Los Angeles and once you get off of Hollywood Blvd. we are real people. We have bikes, and dogs, and 78% of us even have souls. Just like the rest of the world. We may not have the most structurally lush skyline like most major cities, but we have our funky good times.
And we have awesome food, music, and vintage clothing stores.
Also this made me laugh because it sounds like Jimmy and I talking… this is what we talk about. Just in case you ever wondered.
And the worst thing is I have never done anything to actually deserve it… this time.
My dear friend Caitlin (my worm loving amigo) has informed me of television blasphemy. A recreation of “10 things I hate about you”, as a TV show staring a forgettable and regrettable cast, which you can see on imdb.
To Quote Chastity: I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?
I have a feeling this show is going to leave me whelmed. Not every thing in Hollywood should be recycled. Especially not one that had a solid cast and a witty and satirical view on teen motives and emotion. I also have a feeling in the show there will be no Letters to Cleo, or KD Lang references, as teens nowadays have no clue who they are… it’s okay though, they shouldn’t have to. BUT if there is a poster of My Chemical Romance on Kat’s wall… I have a feeling I shall perish.
And yes I know it was based loosely on The Taming of the Shrew. That doesn’t make this new adaptation hurt any less. For more explanations on my feelings read this.
And now that I have expressed my heartache, I have the following questions:
Where is Alison Janney and her coffee cup featuring a cat-Kat?
Shall Mr. Stratford know the 411 of how kid’s get jiggy?
Will Patrick still be accused of sleeping with a spice girl?
Oh and better yet, will Kat ever get to experience that trip to 7-11 on Broadway with Patrick?
Oh and to Jimmy the name of Kat’s BFF who is obsessed with William Shakespeare is Mandella, and she is incandescent.
