So a few weeks back I caught a trailer on Hulu for the new James Franco directorial attempt based on a Cormac McCarthy short novel. It's a story about a backwoods Tennessean in the 50's who becomes increasingly savage and violent.  It looked interesting and I made a mental note to keep an eye out for it.

Today I took a look at the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.  

...it's not getting good ones.  36 percent rating so far...and falling.

Two of my favorite review synopses:

What did we do to deserve James Franco?

Time and again I found myself looking at a wobbly shot of somebody's slouched shoulder, or a not-very-interesting left ear, wondering what information, exactly, these visuals were intended to convey.

I guess I'll just stick with No Country for Old Men for my McCarthy fix.

Dear Stand Up Comics of the World,

We write this letter to let you know that your services are no longer needed.  Issie has now perfected your craft and we feel that any further attempts in that endeavor will only serve to highlight your amateur standings.  

We also ask that all rubber chickens, fake arrow through the head pieces, and giant hammers be turned in as well as we honestly feel prop comics will be his next target.

Sincerely,

Audiences of the World

I had to leave the band after the sold out '82 world tour when it was discovered that I was experimenting with the feathered look.  Layers in hairstyles was verboten at that time.  And when I announced in the Village Voice that I was going to stop using Aquanet altogether, I was drummed out of the industry.

I bummed around for a few years after that, taking the odd job in keyboard tie stores to keep myself in shoulder pads and epaulettes, and didn't really reenter the music world until one weekend in '94 when I discovered that Too Shy was number one with a bullet in Uzbekistan...who had apparently just invented the radio the year prior to that.  I was flown to their capital and asked to perform the song with my old bandmates during their annual "Jesus Christ, We're Still Here!!??" festival. 

Despite the bad blood, we were able to set aside our differences and perform a searing 12 minute set that brought the shack down. 

Not bad for a simple cannibal from the backwoods of Tennessee, eh?
