SEDARATIVES
A MONTHLY ADVICE COLUMN

This month: guest columnist Jemaine Clement

Dear Sedaratives,

The debt ceiling has me concerned. Is this something that I, as a concerned citizen and a good American, can help out with? You know, like recycling.

Joe P.
Tempe, Ariz.



Dear Joe P.,

Don’t worry about the debt ceiling—it’s the debt you should worry about! You guys are really in debt, man! How did you guys get into so much debt? I thought you were rich! What the hell have you been buying? It wasn’t health care! You have more debt than when you were going to the moon! Did you blow it all on aircraft carriers or something? Did you spend it all on designer suits in the ’80s? Did you all get one each? I hope you’re not spending it on drugs! America, look me in the eye and tell me you’re not doing drugs.

Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to help with the national debt:

(1) Make sure you are paying tax in the correct bracket for your earnings.

(2) Buy locally made items. Keeping money in the country is a great help to the economy in general.

(3) Lobby your local politicians to make sure your money is being spent responsibly.

(4) Give the government 20 billion dollars.

Jemaine

It may be some kind of a spoiler for those of you, who hasn't watched Rhys Darby's new live stand up show, This Way To Spaceship, yet.

What a nice surprise found me, when I went to see Rhys tomight! At the beginning of the show, I heard a familiar voice, something like Jemaine's impersonation of Hawkins in Robots. Later Rhys confirmed that it was Jemaine, so...



Jemaine's voice guest appeares a few times in Rhys's latest show! :o #excited#



It's brilliant. If you're interested in the audio, you may soon find a little something-something you know where ;) although the sound isn't so clear.

I'm in a discount store, minding my own business (hurr), when I find this:

It's a size too small, and it was the only one I could find. But for $3 it was totally worth it. #excited#

So this is OLD. Well, from last fall. I kept meaning to post it in the board but never did.
JEMAINE CLEMENT'S FIVE FAVORITE FILMS

Image

Multi-talented Jemaine Clement, known for everything from Flight of the Conchords and What We Do in the Shadows, to Despicable Me and Men in Black III, is now starring in People Places Things. He talked to Rotten Tomatoes recently about his “if not brilliant, I hope at least understandable” Five Favorite Films. Here’s his-more-than-understandable collection:

BEDAZZLED (1967) 81%
Image
Number one is easy, Bedazzled. The original 1967 piece with Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. It’s pretty simple. It’s really funny, and strange____. It’s like I think it was a big influence on my. I saw it in the ‘80s when I was a kid. I think it was on my grandma had, I mean she has seen it before we did, and she had few, we had video types, and I remember seeing the words all handwritten in ____ “Bedazzled”, and it big effect when I’ve seen it, and even the word interested me. Dudley Moore is a meek man who’s in love with this woman, and he makes a deal with the devil, played by Peter Cook to keep trying to change himself to be the kind of man that she would like, and I don’t know of course none of them are going to work. There’s always something wrong with the situation.

HEAVENLY CREATURES (1994) 92%
Image
Heavenly Creatures; put a New Zealand one in here, for national pride, but I do think it’s a beautiful and interesting film. It’s the most beautiful film about matricide he ever made.

RUSHMORE (1998) 89%
Image
Rushmore. That must come up a lot. But it’s funny, and I know that the movie Harold and Maude is probably a big influence on that; but I hadn’t seen that when I saw Rushmore. I hadn’t seen anything like it. It’s really funny. I think Wes Anderson is really hilarious and most people don’t notice, because of the style of the film. Grand Budapest Hotel, to me, was the funniest film of the year, but people saw it as an art film. I think I related to Max as well, because I grew up poor like he did, and when I went to University I did feel like I was kind of pretending of fitting in this world. I related to Max.

ABCD (ANY BODY CAN DANCE) (2013)
Image
I’m going to put in a strange one now, Any Body Can Dance. This is my favorite movie for the last two years. It’s a Bollywood musical dance movie, and I don’t watch enough Bollywood movies. I watch them on the plane sometime, and you know because I travel a lot from place to place, and this one has been my favorite Bollywood films. It’s nearly unpredictable, you know if you’re coming from a Western point of view, but I _____ the same way Bollywood has a different theater role. So for me it’s always surprising what happens in the story, at least it still is, and this is amazing music and dancing in it. It’s like 20 Indian Michael Jacksons. I’ve seen it twice, and parts of it I’ve seen three times. It’s crazy. It’s unusual for a recent movie for me. Yeah, it’s a weird one. It’s not going to be for everyone, I know.

ROBOCOP (1987) 88%
Image
Well the film I’ve seen most in my life is the original RoboCop. So I’m going to put that in. I can’t ignore it. I’ve seen that about 15 times. I think I was too young (to see it in theaters), but I remember being excited about it, and somehow someone had given me these RoboCop stickers. I use to cry if I was out of stickers. Cop, man, part machine, all cop, so you would have had all the stickers on my bedroom that said, “Look out! Protected by RoboCop.” You know it was on my window in the shape of a shield, and you know it was very original at the time. It had a great sense of modern time through it the whole way, which is still appropriate today. The thrill of that, I would want people to value it.

https://editorial.rottentomatoes.com/article/jemaine-clements-five-favorite-films/

I saw this a while ago, I check RT pretty regularly. I love seeing movie/tv/music recommendations from people I admire so I was all over this. I haven't seen any of the above (I did see the horrible Bedazzled remake with Brendan Fraser and Elizabeth Hurley back in the day, that counts right? :P ) but Rushmore has always been on my list. And I did freak the hell out when I saw he had a Bollywood film in there. Bollywood films are amazing and they don't get enough love. #love3#

I do too! So thanks for posting it.

Rushmore & Heavenly Creatures are two of my favorites as well. #thumbsup# My ex-boyfriend kissed me for the first time right after we watched Rushmore together, so I have a special fondness for that movie. #cloud9#

I've seen Robocop, but it's never made much of an impression on me tbh.

I have not seen Bedazzled or ABCD (Any Body Can Dance). I did see the terrible Bedazzled remake (with the aforementioned ex-boyfriend, actually #haha# ). I've always heard that the original was great, but never had much motivation to see it. I guess now I really should check it out.

Ok I really need to make more of an effort to see Rushmore now, I've been meaning to for years. (As well as more recently, Moonrise Kingdom.) Or maybe I should wait to watch it with a guy I'm interested in? #haha# #evilgrin#

I might check out Heavenly Creatures or Bedazzled if it's on Netflix. If I haven't seen Robocop yet I probably never will.

I'm kicking myself now because I used to see ABCD as a Netflix recommendation from the other Bollywood movies I've seen all the time a couple of years ago. I never got around to watching it though. Now it's not there anymore. :(
