Happy Birthday, Corey Haim

The Lost Boys star is 33 today. He doesn't look a day over 40. But alas, rumor has it that his bid to become his generation's Keith Richards is over. I guess not everyone can achieve greatness.

Corey, if Lost Boys 2 never happens, we'll consider you for a role in Showgirls 2:The Cleavage Runs Deep, which is in development.

aah Corey Haim, the (he he) more (he he) successful (he he) Corey.

Alas for pour Corey Feldman, did he even do anything else since Lost Boys, and yes I know that he made a couple of B-movies but seriously folks.

Feldman was the voice of Donatello! For shame!
Teaspoon said…
Ah yes Donatello and then busted for Drugs and missed TMNT II and then came back for TMNT III and who, besides me, could forget Bordello of Blood.

To the Corey's.

I despise reality television... but a Corey's reality show? The Corey Show™ It's a winner.

The Coreys would be given one million dollars to make their comeback movie. They have to write, produce, cast and direct it. Or hire people to on their limited budget.

On the next COREY SHOW™: A shocking revelation, was Feldman fondled by Jacko? Did Haim spend the entire budget on hookers, blow and Jim beam? tune in next week!

This is a CAN'T MISS show... and yes... I have copyrighted the concept with the WGA.

The Corey Show - The Comeback Movie easily cracks the top ten best ideas Latigo Flint has ever heard. It nudges the repeating rifle down to eleven and coming from Latigo Flint that means a lot!

You guys aren't girls so you probably don't truly appreciate how very beautiful Corey Feldman is. Or was, anyway. I haven't seen him in a few years.

“I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse,” “The Godfather,” 1972.
“You don’t understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I could’ve been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am,” “On the Waterfront,” 1954.

Some things are better left uncovered

Sometimes you hear a cover and go to yourself, "hey, that's doper than Sam Perkins at Woodstock." Other times, you wonder (possibly aloud) "that no talent hack! They couldn't even carry [inset original artist here]'s guitar case!" [Ed. note: You should have seen what the author originally wanted to use as the carried item. Believe us, it wasn't a guitar case.]

Today was an example of the second. Some fool whose name I cannot even spare the mental RAM for, has covered "High and Dry" by the esteemed Radiohead. This is up there. With the worst covers of all time. Some songs just don't ever need to be covered. Like this one. And like "It's My Life" by Talk Talk. But No Doubt did a decent job with that one, although they crapped all over it with that video.

This one today was bad. When you do a cover, you're supposed to bring something to it. Maybe your sound is similar to the original artist's, and you b…

Review: Eddie Izzard at The Coronet Theatre

Saturday turned into a date night without even trying. I made dinner for my lovely wife and then we went out to see maybe the finest working stand up commedian today, Eddie Izzard. No, he's not touring right now. He was in LA doing four nights in this tiny 99-seat theatre, working out new material.

He came on about 9 pm, as scheduled (I don't think he realized he was in LA) and proceeded to do mostly new stuff for 90 minutes. He was in bloke mode, no dress or makeup.

Given the size of the crowd, he would occasionally get into conversations with us about the accuracy of some of his historical jokes. He did reference some of his earlier bits, but that's his style if you've listened to or seen more than one of his shows. Some of the new stuff was quite the hysterical. Great bit about houseflies. He wrapped up with "The Deathstar Canteen" from Circle, but a bit altered, which was kind of like the Rolling Stones playing Satisfaction live and extending the so…
