Commentary on IRC this morning on the topic of a Chicago radio show:
[08:14 spruance] Ah, to be young now. Apparently, there's a serious problem
       today:
[08:14 spruance] Girls are more aggressive, and are seeking dates from Boys.
[08:14 spruance] Worse, they're PRESSURING BOYS FOR SEX.
[08:15 Bohr] heh
[08:15 OG] we must put a stop to this!
[08:15 OG] you know, it all starts when girls learn to masturbate
[08:15 Ark] if only because it wasn't that way when we were younger
[08:15 Nicko] damn kids rebelling
[08:15 spruance] *laugh*
[08:16 spruance] this caller is talking about a 12 year old girl who offered a
       blow job if this boy kid would go steady with her.


The only way I'd find this shocking, of course, is if the boys are saying "no", or even taking longer than half a second to think about it. 'Cause when I was 12, everybody's answer would've been, "Right now? Isn't this a little public? Well okay..."

No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!

We got another good theme song with this Bond movie. Sometimes they're timeless, and I never get tired of hearing them. Other times, it's just filler background for the nekkid girlie silhouettes that fly across the opening credits.

Someone else's livejournal listed Madonna's "Die Another Day" as her background music, so I dug through the film's website for a sound file or a video, they had the latter. Ten minutes later, I ran out to Whorehouse for the CD single (a domestic one, a rarity these days,) which I've already encoded and started abusing. The theme song, for me at least, really sets the tone for a whole movie. This is true to an exceptional degree for the Bond series, as the theme tends to be the most noteworthy piece of music. I'll walk out of the theater with scenes running through my head and the theme playing over them. That mental sequence is how I'll remember the experience.

They're making heavy use of Moby's "re-version" of the classic Monty Norman jazz orchestral theme in TV ads and the recent special edition DVDs. I hope it finally gets used in a film this time around...
