The only thing I quote from Beerfest is when letting friends know the beer selection at a restaurant or bar I always end it with "Und Becks?"

But Beerfest was a lot of fun.

Watched a movie last night I'd never even heard of before yesterday. It's on Hulu.

Love & Mercy with Paul Dano, John Cusack, Giamatti, and Elizabeth Banks. It's about Brian Wilson's decent into madness after he made Pet Sounds. Dano plays young Wilson in the 60's and Cusack plays him in the 80's. Fantastic film. 91% on RT. Definitely recommend it.

It reminded me of a story I'd often heard before told by Alice Cooper:

“I was sitting backstage after the 1974 Grammys with Bernie Taupin (Elton John’s lyricist) and John Lennon. This was when Brian was really having some mental issues. During the course of the conversation, I kept seeing Brian out of the corner of my eye, just kind of staring at us from different angles. Finally, he came up to the table, bent down and whispered in my ear ‘Hey Alice, introduce me to John Lennon.’ I couldn’t BELIEVE that these two men had never met! They were virtually neck and neck in the 60’s as the greatest bands on the planet, and I’m SURE they must have crossed paths at some point. But then I thought to myself, ‘Wow, if they REALLY have never met, I’m going to be the one to introduce them and become a part of rock history!’ So I merely said, ‘Brian Wilson, this is John Lennon. John Lennon, this is Brian Wilson.’ Lennon was very cordial and polite, saying things like ‘Hello Brian, I’ve always wanted to meet you. I’ve always admired your work, and Paul and I considered Pet Sounds one of the best albums ever made.’ Brian thanked him and walked away, at which point Lennon went right back to his conversation like nothing had happened. About ten minutes later, Brian came by our table again, leaned down and whispered something to Bernie, and all of a sudden, Bernie was saying ‘Brian Wilson, this is John Lennon. John Lennon, Brian Wilson.’ Lennon was just as cordial and polite as the first time, saying essentially the same thing about always wanting to meet him. As soon as Brian walked away, John looked at both of us and casually said in his typical Liverpudlian accent, ‘I’ve met him hundreds of times. He’s not well, you know.’”

He's reached Madonna-levels of famous name singularity.

Without question. Although to be fair the only other Giamatti I've ever heard of was his dad.

Everyone says his name with a dramatic, hushed whisper.

We Hates Movies has ruined Giamatti for me. All I can ever think of is "you blew it PG, you blew it again!"

Yeah, it was just odd that I saw a few reactions along the lines of, "whoa, the new Hellboy looks AMAZING," and he just looks the same, which was already really damn cool to begin with.

RIP

I'll always remember him for being detective rudy jenkins in Christine. It's one of the cult movie me and my best friends always quote lines from. (along with Duel, Slam, etc.)

Jenkins: Interesting shade of red you have there on your car. didn't think they made that color anymore. (also lol like they couldn't make a color again or something)

Arnie: Well they must!

Jenkins: Do you have the receipt?

Arnie: *snaps fingers* tossed it out

It's crazy that he was already almost 60 when he was in that.

I love that every tribute I've seen uses a picture from a totally different type of movie for him. "Hey, here I am getting murdered by an Alien! Now I'm Molly Ringwald's dad! Now I'm hanging out with the Brian Jonestown Massacre! Now I'm chilling in Texas with Dean Stockwell! Hey, here I am repo-ing cars in some weird punk rock alien LA! Whoops, gotta go hang out with the Avengers! Oh, wait; David Lynch needs me for something!"

What a career.

Please tell me one of you saw this

I get that Rex Reed is, uh, bad, but this movie seems to be polarizing and I'm curious what someone not begging for ad-clicks thinks about it
