Movies and Music. Sometimes It's Just Funny
by Turtle Jones
These are some of the new writers! Feel free to insult them or drag them down. But, remember, they are the ones entertaining you during the day. So as part of our kick off week, we asked them all to do answer question.
We ask you to answer this, too.
The best scene of a rock star in a movie. Wanna answer?
Wanna meet some of our wrtiers?
Lee Ving as Mr. Boddy in "Clue", and Jane Wiedlin in the same movie as the singing telegram girl that gets shot at the door. Anthony Kiedis in "Point Break". I love "The New Guy", there's tons of goofy cameos in it, like Henry Rollins as the prison warden, Zakk Wylde as the wussy cellmate to Eddie Griffin's character, and Gene Simmons as the mall preacher.
Ok now the few words... Just cool to have a movie credit as someone who was spent the movie dead, for Lee Ving (and i think Richard Hell got a similar part in "Desperately Seeking Susan" actually). Good times seeing Jane shot! Same with Anthony Kiedis, but it was just his foot if i remember right. The other ones.. one of those things, you see the movie for the first time and you're all "Hey that's whatsisname!" and it just makes the movie worth watching, even if it DOES kind of suck otherwise.
Damn and i almost forgot, and i watched the movie again the other night.... Sting was the sort of dickhead dad who owned the pub in "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels". Been a while since i saw the whole thing. I thought he was funny. Sting's always kind of a sweet guy with his desert rose and blue turtles and crap and then here he's this asshole pub owner.

Lee Ving from FEAR in Flashdance. He had the perfect look and the perfect attitude for this role. He was a strip club promoter trying to turn innocent girls into girls that would kill their dreams by taking off the clothes for a few bucks more. This was beautiful because in all reality, it wasn't really him acting....this is the way he lived. Anything for a few dollars more. Beer and strippers. This man had a job that alot of us wanted but what he was built for. Seein' titties and drinking beer. Getting in fights and seein' tittes. This was Lee Ving.
Heh, I will call Sting in Quadrophenia, or Lee Ving from Fear in Streets of Fire, but the hands down best would be Steve Vai in Crossroads.and the film Crossroads with Ralph Machio not the crappy Britney Spears film. the one I'm on about was a blues film, and it was pretty damn good.
Ernie gets all Canadian on us.
I love the scene in Wayne's World where Wayne and Garth get back stage

Cullen pulls out an old tape.
Jello Biafra, Ted Nugent, Mike Nesmith, and many others in Tapeheads.
I'm not sure that any rock star's performance really stands out in this movie, but this is a favorite flick from my youth. Back in the days when Tim Robbins was still funny and John Cusak kept his ideology in his pants. There is plenty to like in this movie. But the best. King Cotton. Chicken. Waffles. Rap. Jello Biafra as an FBI agent.
Flea in Big Lebowski
In The Big Lebowski - one of the greatest movies ever made - Flea plays Nihilist #2 (aka Kieffer). He's not a very good nihilist. Kind of whiny. And it's not even his best film work. But I just love the whole nihilist angle of this movie.
Nihilist #2: Iss not fair!
Plus, he looks kinda goofy in that outfit.
Red Hot Chili Peppers in the absolutely disgraceful 1986 skateboarding film, Thrashin'.
