Shallow Grave


In "honor" of the opening of Sex and the City this weekend, the best of DXM's references to the show and its equine star, Sarah Jessica Parker -- dating all the way back to the beginning of this little experiment of mine.

DXM: Anatomically Incorrect/6.2.06

DXM: Return of the Attack of the Creeping Surrealism/9.20.06

DXM: They're Just Not That Into You/3.21.08

DXM: And Now, the Last Word on the Whole Sarah Jessica Parker Thing, from Chez's Evil Twin, Garth/3.25.08

(And then there's this: Just a few minutes ago, I found a couple of ticket stubs for Sex and the City on the floor of the elevator in my apartment building. Almost makes me sorry I didn't live here when I was single, since there are obviously at least two dumb, impressionable women with low standards somewhere in this place. Yes this is an incredibly crass thing to say -- feel free to direct your complaints here.)

Personally (and how important is THAT?), I find this whole SJP and Sex in the City phenomenon below comment. I spend over a thousand dollars a year on season tickets to hockey games, and I imagine some would find that a ridiculous waste, not to mention an indicator of my intellectual vacuity. But, given that every where I go I am reminded of the SitC movie and am confronted by what can only be described as a horse face, I get where you're coming from. There is a sub-set of people, presumably women of a certain type and some gay men who find the fantasy of SitC entertaining. I find it distasteful, inane and manipulative. Reading your collection of posts brings into perspective an overall cultural illness that indicts both the viewer and celebrity industry. There is not a single moment in my life that is in any way impacted, for better or worse, by a celebrity or a movie, yet it is constantly implied that they are important.

I'm not a sycophant but I find this series of posts a helpful reminder to be a vigilant contrarian in the popular cultural market. So, thanks for that.

Man, that brick wall link is brilliant. Seriously. Did you set that up, or is that the creation of some some generous blogging soul who wanted his or her peers to have someplace to send the idiots?

Chez said...

That's a Votar special.

Now can you imagine what the radio show he and I hosted in Miami for years sounded like?

Chez you missed the boat with those 2 low standard women.

Kind of reminds of something i said in high school..."Well Jen now that you have sunk to an all time low now you and i can go out"

Happy Memories.

My GF worked on this and we were supposed to go to a screening on Wednesday night. At the last minute, she decided she didn't want to deal with it and we didn't go. I would have gone if she had wanted to, but damn, did I feel like I dodged a bullet!

Stop looking at it, stop talking to it, just ignore it and it will quit.
Or keep scratching.

I found this today and thought of you.

Gotta love the SatC fans. I voiced my opinion on the whole damn thing, and I got ripped a new one on a message board. I was even told that due to my comments someone wanted to, "shove a Manolo Blahnik up your nose. Not just the stiletto. The whole damn shoe.", on top of being told that if the SatC ladies were real, I'd be labeled "Mr. Douchebag". Which would be wonderful, because I wouldn't have to worry about my bank account or contracting death from Samantha's "cavern o' mystery". Ah, Mondays.

"Crass," you say? The only reason women like this exist is to be taken advantage of. By boinking them and not giving a damn later, you are simply fulfilling their destinies. They should be grateful.

Now, real women are a very different story...
