We’ve Moved!

It’s been a fun one-plus years here at Celebrity Exile.  We’ve had celebrities to roast, drinks to toast, and all sorts of other crap to post.  But while this site started as some sort of grand tribute to hate, the Limejuiceboy and I found it quickly difficult to be that angry all the time.  As a result the scope of the site changed.

During our run at Celebrity Exile, we also had another site going.  One involving a rotating writing experiment, where each of us would write a chapter in a story, and then build upon that chapter in turn.  It was called the Lime Juice Boys, and it was full of the pirate passion we’re (at least to our friends) known for.

So, as you’ve probably guessed, we’re merging the two together.  Right here:

WWW.LIMEJUICEBOYS.COM

It’s the same ol’ Celebrity Exile you love…

Just with more pirates.

Come join us, will you?

Babies and Blogging Don’t Mix

I have a newborn daughter.  My first.  She’s fun.  She’s cool.  But she’s fussy and hungry.  ALWAYS hungry.  In other words, needy.  Very, very needy.  Which all sounds very similar to another short-lived aspect of my life:

Blogging.

Like little Audrey this site is fun and (hopefully) cool, but also very, very hungry.  And similar to an anvil hanging over one’s head, this blog hovers over me, reminding me to feed it with new posts.  You haven’t posted lately.  Maybe you should post something.  What are you going to post?  It’s been three days, where’s the post?  And so on.

Obviously there this word called “priorities”.  Maybe you’ve heard of it?  And if you have you know that BABY>BLOGGING.  That’s about as clear as John Travolta’s sexual orientation.  But still, since this isn’t just a personal endeavor (hello, Mr. Limejuiceboy), I feel a certain nagging need to keep typing.

I’ve already had to change my lifestyle for the wee one.  I can’t ride the exercise bike after work anymore.  Now I’m getting up to do it before work.  I can’t expect my wife to participate in the household chores all that much anymore.  More of those are my responsibility now.  The drinking and extracurriculars have also dropped significantly.  In other words…everything’s different.  And my life has been flipped a bit upside down.  (Please note, I’m not complaining.  For all the struggles, having a daughter is pretty damn cool.  It just makes my previous life much more difficult.)

So, what do I do about the blog?  When can I type?  Damned if I know.  Ask Audrey (but quietly, she’s sleeping right now).  I’m hoping that as she matures I’ll get more time in, but in the meantime, I’m going to have to squeeze these in.

Because babies and blogging don’t mix.  At least not very well.  But that won’t stop me from trying.

Little Fockers: The Reason Hollywood Makes Bad Movies

January 3, 2011 1 comment

You’ve heard someone say it before.  You’ve probably said it yourself.

“Why can’t Hollywood make good movies?”

Well, and let’s get this out of the way right now, Hollywood does make good movies.  Every year.  The Social Network, True Grit, and Inception prove that.  But the real question is…

“Why does Hollywood make so many crappy movies?”

Cap’n Blackjack’s Top Five Movies of 2010

December 28, 2010 Leave a comment

In this late December time of internet Top Ten or Top Five lists, here is one more!  From your good friend Cap’n Blackjack!  So, without further ado, here is my list of the top five movies of this soon-to-be-over year.

NOTE:  I, being the casual moviegoer that I am, have not seen a vast quantity of films over the past twelve months.  As a result, certain films such as True Grit and Black Swan (ones I have a feeling could end up on this list) have been omitted.

Harrison Ford Wants Indiana Jones to Die

December 20, 2010 Leave a comment

According to Showbizspy, the 68 year old actor has informed George Lucas and Steven Spielberg that he would like Indiana Jones to die in a fifth and final installment of the (once) revered series.  This would, presumably, leave the door open for Shia LaBeouf’s Mutt Williams to take over.  It’s also said that George (predictably) is resistant to the idea whereas Steven is more willing to listen. 

Interesting.

Now, keep in mind this is all a rumor.  No one knows much of anything for sure except that these guys are definitely gearing up for a fifth adventure with the world’s most famous fictional archaeologist.  Which brings up my point (I always have one!):

Why kill Indy?  Why not just kill off the series instead?
