Hello all! Can't figure out if the anti-request is really for stuff we can't stand, or "something we don't want played" a la Ken... If it's the first, then Paul McCartney & Wings' "Bip Bop".
And seriously, Ken? "Warriors" holds a record for quality level shift between start and the rest of the movie? Oh come on! Not only is "Warriors" a fine movie, there are certainly plenty of movies with really promising starts that then descend into crap.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 9:47am Tom from Detroit:

Greetings Ken. I recommend recently built prefab modular structures bearing parts identical to those of numerous adjacent structures. I dig em young, uniform and without prophylactics.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 9:47am Chris T.:

Just remember "Rust never sleeps". I'm facing a possible replacement of my boiler, too. The question is: how do you find someone to give you an honest appraisal and not just sell you a new boiler?
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 9:48am rob t:

one more antii-request: the Kingston Trio's version of Seasons In The Sun.

Go Ken!!!

I once saw a guy in the street giving away flyers about a short film that was going to be exhibited for free. The flyer featured this cool black panther and it looked like I was going to see an independent thriller. The venue was the headquarter of Scientology and I ended up watching a 30 min advertorial. Obviously I stayed there just few months. We were only allowed to drink water, we didn't washed ourselves, etc. Thank Xenu I wasn't brainwashed.

On an unrelated note, I have all Tom Cruise films and hearted the song.

The hazy definition of "celebrity" means that celebrity deaths come in 259s, not threes. I mean, if you count everybody who ever appeared in a Bollywood film or did a guest spot on some bullshit detective show on TV. Where do you draw the line on who is a celebrity and who isn't? Who decides?
