Eye Candy and Mind Candy...

Two movies in two days....

1. Eye candy: Pirates of the Carribean, Dead Man's Chest. Entertaining though unflinchingly derivative. Still, Johnny Depp plus a whole lot of tentacles made for a lot of amusement. The giant tub popcorn didn't hurt either.

2. Mind candy: The Aristocrats is an adventure in obscenity by way of a shared joke among the comedy/entertainment industry. As my mind was desperately trying not to laugh at the delivery of alarmingly inappropriate subjects (suffice to say, anyone actually performing the acts pitched would be thrown in prison if they were very lucky) I was thoroughly entranced by watching working comedians actually work to tell a joke and talk about how they tell the joke.
