I Did Not Get Cooler Overnight

I know I said I would try not to be so lame today, but I didn't promise. Good thing, because I am now going to unburden myself of a shameful secret, after which you will all realize how monumentally uncool I really am.

I watched "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle". And I liked it. Yes, that is indeed the second Charlie's Angels movie, with Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, and Drew Barrymore. It was so very, very bad, and yet so very, very entertaining.

If you're easily entertained, you will like this movie. If you're a man, you will like this movie because of the skanky clothes and hot women. If you're a woman, you will like this movie because there is a scene featuring M.C. Hammer's "Can't Touch This." Seriously. It was awesome. The soundtrack kind of rocks.

There were parts that were so bad they made me squirm, and Demi Moore was beyond terrible in it. But I still got a kick (ha!) out of all the slow-mo fight scenes and watching them all try to run in stilettos. And let's not forget the ridiculously improbable action scenes involving grabbing helicopters in mid-air and dodging bullets while flying through the air on motorbikes.

So there. I admit it--I have no standards when it comes to movies. But really, "Can't Touch This"? Can you blame me for being entertained? And don't try to pretend that there isn't some movie or song that you love, but wouldn't cop to in front of your friends. Because I know there is. I refuse to believe I'm the only one who starts car-dancing when "Ice Ice Baby" comes on.

Stop, collaborate and listen. Ice is back with a brand-new invention. HA! Got it in your head!

My work here is done. Have a nice day.

I watched the movie about Vanilla Ice's life once. Wow, was that awful. And there are lots of songs I dance to in my car. It's great that I'm usually alone and can turn on the a/c.

I once saw Vanilla Ice in concert. He was opening for M.C. Hammer. It was before his song got uber-popular, and our seats were so far away I thought he was black.

BTW, I am proud to say I know all the words to Baby Got Back. The one line that always gets stuck in my head is:
"They toss it, and leave it, and I pull up quick to retrieve it."

Ice AND Hammer, TOGETHER?! Well, that was surely a once-in-a-lifetime thing. Though they might be able to revive the tour and pitch it as one of those sad B-list (or would they be, like, D-list?) celebrity reality shows.

And my favorite line? "My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns, hon." Such a wonderfully tasteless song.

I'm pretty sure there's a good reason why I didn't watch that movie. It might have been Demi Moore.
If I'd known about Hammer....
