one grumpy bean: so you have a world map on your kitchen wall?

Africa is still 14 times bigger than Greenland. And Europe might not be the centre of the world after all. Let your kids know so they don’t end up playing in some angry punk band, complaining about capitalism and worshiping the devil.

Greenland vs Africa

Fortunately, a dude called Peter already got frustrated about this and did something about it.

Saw this trailer recently.  Interesting.

2009 Oscar Nomination Commentary with Nevermind

Ebean sits down with speedcore musician Nevermind to discuss the Oscar nominees and the upcoming release of two new albums.

BEST PICTURE
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
EB (Ebeans)-  Worst movie ever!  Actually slept through parts hoping to wake up to it being over.
N (Nevermind)- Wanted to see it and thought it was a good idea.  Probably too long to watch in a theatre though.
EB-Hmm.

Frost/Nixon
EB-  Haven’t seen it but it looks interesting.
N-  Haven’t seen it yet.

Milk
EB-  I want to see it.
N-  I haven’t seen most of this shit.

The Reader
EB-  Nope.
N-  *Blank stare*

Slumdog Millionaire
EB-  I saw it.  It was really good.
N-  *Leaves the room*.

BEST ACTOR
Richard Jenkins – The Visitor
EB-Haven’t seen it.
N-Me neither.

Frank Langella – Frost/Nixon

EB- I saw it, but have nothing to compare it to.

Melissa Leo – Frozen River
Meryl Streep – Doubt
Kate Winslet – The Reader

SUPPORTING ACTOR
Josh Brolin – Milk
Robert Downey Jr. – Tropic Thunder
EB-  That was so hilarious!
N-Kind of funny. “I know who I am. I’m a dude playing a dude disguised as another dude.”
EB-That Curious Case crap was like Tropic Thunder’s “Simple Jack”.

Philip Seymour Hoffman – Doubt
Heath Ledger – The Dark Knight

EB- He was really great in this movie.
N-  He was good.  He’s gonna win.  That movie would have sucked if he wasn’t in it.
EB-  True.

Michael Shannon – Revolutionary Road

SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Amy Adams – Doubt

Andrew Stanton – WALL-E

EB-  They do the same shit over and over again.
N-  That’s all they ever do.  I like watching cartoons on dvd.  What pisses me off is they bleep out the swears on dvd.  Why don’t they unbleep them?

ANIMATED

Bolt
Kung Fun Panda
WALL-E

N-  I want to see it.  I was told to watch it.

Between bites of pastina pasta, Nevermind tells me he has two records coming out.  The first is on his own label, Apocalypse Recordings.  It is just called “Nevermind”.  The other is a compilation with U.S. artists on a Swiss label called TNI.  The album will release at about the same time as the other and will be called “Valkyrie’s Vigil“.
