4 Truths and a Lie About Trish

1. I got into a small fender bender because I was thinking about mini burgers.

2. I was hit by a cab in Austin on my way to meeting a friend then after I met up with her, was so flustered that I peed all over my skirt in the ladies room.

3. I have multiple copies of Anna Karenina and One Hundred Years of Solitude.

4. I flooded a hotel bathroom while having wild sex in the shower.

5. I subscribed to Details mag because I felt like they were not as popular as Maxim and needed subscribers.

Five New Movie Trailers!

The podcast is on hiatus. The blog writers seem to be on hiatus too. In turn, this blog has literally turned into me posting YouTube videos. But I love YouTube videos (especially movie trailers), so who cares?

Last night I watched 4 (EDIT: 5) trailers for new movies that will be released later this year. Now you can watch them, read my opinions, and see if you feel the same way!

May 10: The Great Gatsby

I read the book in high school. I hated it. This movie is directed by Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, Australia). I don’t like his movies.

What I’m trying to say is that this movie is going to suck. The only saving grace is the cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Tobey Maguire, Isla Fisher. I like all of them, but I don’t think they have any chance of saving this movie. It looks too flashy and fake and over-the-top.

May 26: Behind the Candelabra

So, so gay. Directed by Steven Soderbergh and being released on HBO on a random Sunday, I’m somewhat looking forward to this.  I’m not Soderbergh’s biggest fan, but I give all of his movies a watch. I also love Matty D. He brings his A game with every movie he’s in.

September 13: Rush

Thor and Ron Howard make a racing movie? NO THANKS.

July 19: Only God Forgives

By far the greatest movie in this post and one of my most anticipated movies of the year! Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling team up again after 2011’s Drive. Set in Bangkok, super violent, and starring the always charming Ryan Gosling, this movie is going to be nothing short of amazing.

EDIT 9:26pm: Had to add this trailer too!

August 8: Elysium

Take some District 9 and mix it together with some Matt Damon? YES YES YES

Worst Human #5

Apparently the city bus experience includes ruined baby faces.

As someone who rides public transportation on a regular basis in a large city…I see some strange stuff. In fact, just last week I saw a drunk older lady who wore fake Uggs that reeked of beer get on the bus and shove people out of her way to the back. She could not stay still and would constantly switch seats. She carried a bag with her and in it was candy (I think it was Valentine’s Day) and water guns. She tossed both those things at commuters only to pick them up herself not long after. She even threatened people by pointing the water guns at them. Luckily they weren’t armed. One moment she would be kind and offer the candy in her bag by throwing it at you…the next she’d be telling you she’ll kick your ass for no reason. I was at point blank range when all this occurred. How do you lessen your chances of being collateral damage from shit like this? Try to avoid eye contact. Luckily, it worked.

However, none of that was as disgusting and strange as today in a long time. An older man got on the bus. He was pulling one of those suitcases with the rollers on them. He moved towards the back but refused to sit down. The buses here in the back have two seats in a row. He stood to the side of them with his back facing me. Over the course of my ride I heard him cough numerous times. Okay, so maybe he was sick. Not too uncommon in the winter months. Then he started doing those windup coughs where you make that very unpleasant sound at the back of your throat before spitting. Spit he did. I could hear it all but couldn’t see him well since his back was to me and there were people in between us. I heard that a few times. Okay, so he’s probably covering his mouth with tissue like people do on the bus. NOPE. As we all got to the last stop people started getting off. I got a better view of him. He did another windup cough, “HHAAAAHCK” and then a “TUUUU”. Spit he did…except now I saw that he was not spitting into a tissue. He moved away to get off the bus…revealing what his body was covering from my view. He spat ALL OVER those two seats he was standing next to. I got up to get off as well and had to walk pass that horror! It was the most rude and disgusting thing I’ve sen in real life in a LONG TIME. JFC. You, sir…are the WORST HUMAN.

Good fucking day
