Well today totally sucked ass.
Just as I knew it would. I expected it to suck ass. Somehow I thought this foresight would make it easier to live through to the rain of shit that fell all over my life, but I was wrong. So wrong. With every new horror that popped up, I was worn down just a little further. I haven't measured my height or anything, but I must be at least 3 feet shorter than I started out this morning. And my head hurts.
But there was a bright spot when I woke up and saw that USA Today has a sneak peak at the new Speed Racer movie in production. And the photos are incredible. Word is that the Wachowski Brothers are creating a movie unlike anything seen before (not a surprise considering they were also responsible for The Matrix)...
I was a massive fan of the original Speed Racer cartoon when I was a kid (it had a monkey in it!), and am really psyched to see how this film is going to play out. Unfortunately, I have a long five months to wait. In the meanwhile, I guess I'll just go stare at the sneak peak photos again, and play make-believe Speed Racer like I used to...
And then prepare myself for yet another crappy day tomorrow.
UPDATE: The Speed Racer teaser trailer is now online. This is going to be so cool. Look, it's Chim Chim!!
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
Did you get a chance to see Betty White on Ugly Betty tonight? (With the time difference, has it been on yet?)
ooo, Speed Racer is going to be sweet!
Hope tomorrow is a better day… if not, you can hole up at home over the weekend?
So the “M” on the helmet is for “Monkey”? Right?
Little Dave’s scarf is at a somewhat rakish angle there.
You know what I’ve learned by being friends with you? That sometimes, under dire circumstances, it *is* okay to offer a hug over the internet. I’d rather hug you in person but yanno….sending you a virtual hug anyway :).
i’m concerned. you’ve had an onslaught of craptastic days lately.
should i fed ex a cupcake!?
I’m digging the neck kerchief Dave. First the dress, and now this. Wonder what’s on tap for tomorrow.
Sorry you’re having such a crappy time of it.
Dave! I totally loved Speed Racer, too. I was beyond intrigued with Racer X, the coolest thing ever. I have always loved cartoons and comic strips.
I was woefully unimpressed with the Speed Racer trailer. I have no prior experience with it, so I was just judging it from a movie standpoint, and at this point I am not interested.
Hmmm… well, there’s a new Sex And The City movie trailer out if you think that’s more your SPEED. Ha ha ha! SPEED! get it?? I slay me!!
Awww! Hooray, I had not heard anything about the Speedracer movie. I loved that show!
By the way, if you don’t want Sizzle’s cupcake, she can Fed Ex it to me. 😉
OMG. That trailer looks INSANE.
5 months seems like forever…
I think you should consume massive amounts of chocolate pudding today—to make for your crappy day yesterday.
You kinda look like Evil Kneivel (rest his soul). But your pants need more red and blue.
I used to love speed racer! When my husband and I were dating we used to watch it all the time. I remember we used to joke around about when they were under a car the cartoon took on a bluish tint. When things are blue (pictures that aren’t developed correctly, paint chips, or whatever) we say “it must have been under a car” which I just realized doesn’t make any sense to anyone but us and we probably sound really stupid when we say it around other people. And yes, now I am done sharing nonsensical things for today. You can laugh at me and maybe feel better, right?
I never watched Speed Racer as a kid, but this looks like a fun, bizarre movie. I’m looking forward to it, too.
As a way to cheer you up after a crappy day, you can check out the latest Ugly Betty that starred Betty White. You might be perked up by that.
Even when you’re having a crappy day you find a way to put a smile on the rest of our faces. Thanks for sharing (I’m stoked about this movie; those images look great!) and today’s ‘toon is the bees knees… You rock!
I wonder if there will be as much “hmmm” and “awww!!” in this movie as there was in the cartoon?
Speed Racer was one of my favorites also.
I was never a big “Speed Racer” girl, but I rather enjoy how all of my childhood memories are coming back to the big screen!
Emile Hirsch, eh? Not bad. I think I can handle this movie. Was never too big on Speed Racer, but I can learn it.
Speaking of Speed Racer – check out this story from McSweeney’s about Speed Racer.
Loved Speed Racer as a kid. I’m excited to see the movie. Will have to go check out the trailer when I’m back on faster broadband (currently sitting in Orlando airport via EVDO connection)
