Na-chooooooooooooooooooooooooo


Hey kats,

So I discovered this little ad for Nacho Libre last week and I thought I had better share it.


View this clip on Vimeo

nacholibrediaries.wmv

The film stars Jack Black and is directed by Jarod Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) and written by Mike White (wrote School of Rock and Orange County).


The movie comes out June 2nd, but the ad is for Jack Black's production diaries. Now, I know not many of you follow this stuff online (Peter Jackson's King Kong stuff was simply incredible!!) but this is a real opportunity to view something interesting. The diaries will be airing twice a week until the movie opens - 20 episodes total.


To view them - all you have to do is subscribe on iTunes tomorrow and you can watch them weekly through the program. I hope you all have iTunes - if you don't... well, frankly, I am not sure why I would be talking to you.

Let's try to follow along - no one ever really has to struggle to watch Jack Black - he is amazing!!


Here is an interesting tid bit to wrap up today - this is the Farm Bureau Annual Financial Report. And who happens to grace the cover this year - none other than our lovely miss Cara!


I have actually had to sit on this image for weeks, Cara was not too sure about posting it before the report came out (actually, she was not sure about posting it and will surely deal out some form of punishment on yours truly... but hey, I'll take any form of attention I can get!).

With that grin on her face - makes ya wonder what she was thinking about. Hmmmm.....

Yo!

Kids - looks like I lied. The first confession is already up at iTunes. Simply go to the music store and search "Nacho Libre."

You can then subscribe to Jack Black's Confessionals.

It's going to be yummy.

I just realized Nacho's sidekick is Pedro! (Efren Ramirez) Amazing how going shirtless and a wearing a different hairdo can make someone look so different.

Also saw Ned Schneebly (Mike White) in the vid. Will Mike have any role (even cameo) in the flick, or is he just one of the writers (and producers?)?

What a family on the FB cover! Ah, Cara the older sister, sharing a respectful glance-smile with her Mother while big Brother, Dad, and Brother's "life partner" support the 3 ladies. *Single tear.* *Sniff. Sniff.* It's beautiful.

Damfino said...

I don't think that dude is Pedro - I will have to look it up.

I feel bad for Dad though - in the photo he is in mid stroke, caused by the seizing of his back from the stress on it.

Sadly, this was the last happy photo the family ever had.

Damfino said...

You're right - Efram's name is listed. But he is not playing the sidekick. I am not sure what role he has.

Kern said...

Yeah, the movie looks pretty sweet. I'm glad to see someone's burgeoning relationship is going well. I got another e-mail from Lindsay yesterday. Not very encouraging. Not completely hopeless, but not really encouraging either.

krysta jo said...

Cool Cara's a celebrity! How fun!

I saw the preview for Nacho Libre - it was on before Failure to Launch. Looks relatively amusing, but possibly pulling too much stuff used in Napoleon. Could get lame-o.

Oh and FYI Failure to Launch was funny, light-hearted, and a must see (even for guys - Dan actually requested we see it).

Damfino said...

KJ - your opinion of movies frightens me! Failure got some of the worst reviews of the year!!

Kern - why so "not encouraging?" She ask if you were well hung and you spoke the truth?

krysta jo said...

Who the hell believes the critics? They suck and all they like to do is put down decent movies and play to the money. Down with the critics. Obviously Failure to Launch is not destined to win any big awards, but it was cute, easy to watch, and kept you engaged through the whole thing. I will admit that there were extraneous story lines that, thinking back, were random, but hey...with an attention span of a 2-year old, sometimes I need that. Get off your high horse and go see hotty Matty M.

Kern said...

My nickname "Kid Centimetre" did not come up during the conversation.

She e-mailed saying she had a good time, the unfortunate part being that she quickly stated that she can't commit to another time to hang out right now because she's "booked up". I don't like to make assumptions, but the reality is that she's only been with the dating service two weeks and is still getting loads of responses. So by booked up I think she means, has lots of dates. Which brings me back to my original point, which is that I feel like I'm on the fucking Bachelor, only without the requisite qualities to stand out among the other contestants. I'm the guy on the show who everyone likes in an underdog kind of way whose exit is kind of sad. She said she wanted me to keep writing and she didn't want me to think she's blowing me off, but given my past situations, I can't really help feeling that way.

"Are you zooming in on my package?"



I will search the itunes QA and find this Nacho Libre....

Laugh different!


b.o.

Damfino said...

Laugh different... Kreitner - you make my giblets giggle.

KJ - you hated Munich - no opinion from you!

Kern - take heart. Even though she is obviously enjoying the new found man fame - she might return for a little Camus lover loving. Not every guy can offer that.

Kid Centimetre... ouch.

krysta jo said...

Kern - quit overthinking. Keep writing. If it doesn't work out, she's not the last girl on Earth. And..if you don't like feeling like you're on the Bachelor, find another way to meet girls. Try speed dating. Or hang around the bookstore, movie store, etc.

krysta jo said...

Jed - shut it. Munich was horrid.

Damfino said...

Wonky!!! Shut it!!!

Well played Princess - you made me laugh remembering Austin Powers and also miffed me by slamming Munich.

Now I am hungry.

She is right Alex - keeping writing her. You will know when she is not interested. Also, try those c*ck push-ups. Chicks dig those.

Sheriff Officer Greg the Bunny said...

KJ...sage advice for Kern from a wise contributing female.



"Can I borrow some sweats?"


N.L.

Kern said...

Thanks for the advice all. As far as feeling like I'm on the Bachelor, I've come to realize that it's not specifically because it's online dating. Any kind of dating it's a general rarity that people hit it off so well that they just start only going on dates with each other.

She may not be the last girl on Earth, but let us not forget the Darth Tater incident of 2005. As soon as this ends up one way or the other I'm just going to crawl back into my apartment and write and paint and get back to the regularly scheduled programme of celibacy.

Kern said...

I would really love to hear Deit's opinion on this matter. I have a feeling it would be really interesting and entertaining.

Damfino said...

Deit stopped reading the Damfinoblog long ago.

Something about 4th grade potty humor not being his thing. No Shartres here.

"Do you remember when the crowd was chanting my name... and I used my strength to tear my blouse!"

Kern said...

But the Damfinoblog is about so much more than mere potty humor...it's about the triumph of the human spirit. It's about community.

And dick jokes. We have dick jokes, too.

Kern said...

By the way, guess who's seeing V For Vendetta tonight?

Yeah!

FlopTheNuts said...

I don't know, J. I keep flip-flopping in my mind, one minute convincing myself that the guy on Nacho's left in the pic is Pedro, the next minute zooming in on one facial feature and saying to myself "Hmmm... Maybe. No, that isn't Pedro." But, I'm still leaning towards the "Yep, it's Pedro" side. Stupid IMDB.com not listing Efren's character's name...

I think Dad's look is of the beginning or end of a gritted-teeth smile and grumbling "OK, take the damn picture already - my prostate can't take the pressure much longer. Oh, damn it!" They did a good job of placing the "Balanced Growth" title/slogan in front of Dad's pee trail stain.

Deit Heimley said...

You DARE question Deit Heimely!!! For this, Jed, you shall die!!!

Over the top? I thought it was a bit over the top. Wait. I can do it better.

Deit Heimley said...

Hidi-Ho Damfinobloggers! I'm still here! I am just too tied up recently and writing with my nose is hard.

To pun-laden? Is pun-laden even a word?

OK. One more time.

Deit Heimley said...

HOW could you say I have abandoned you. After everything I have done for you!!! Don't you realize that all of it .. the snide snubs, the avoidance, the just not reading a dammed thing you wrote ... ALL of it was for YOU!!!

OK. That was definitely too over-wrought.

I'm going to try again.

krysta jo said...

Kern - if you don't keep dating and meeting new girls, you may never find the one that sticks around after the first date. Holing up in your writing and painting won't likely help the overall dating situation.

Jed -- I try hard just to make you laugh. And...quit making fun of my wonky eye. I think it's endearing.

FlopTheNuts said...

DAMN!! Call KJ buttah, 'cuz she is on a roll!

Kern said...

Yeah, part of the problem is that it's so hard to meet people around here. There is a palpably cold vibe surrounding non-Midwestern transplants in Seattle. I wouldn't have rejoined Match.com if Lindsay's profile hadn't been so awesome.

Other than that I'd pretty much given up.

Deit Heimley said...

Hello folks. My name is Deit Heimely and I'm here to talk to you today about oral diarrhea. It called the noisy killer, and it is responsible for 0 out 8 deaths in this country alone. There is no cure, but it can be treated with Oramin.

Oramin is not be taken with food. Oramin can cause bladder bleeding and rectal warts. If you are taking Oramin and cease talking for over four hours, this could be the symtom of a serious side effect. Seek professional help immediately. Oramin is to be taken only under supervision. Oramin has been found to cause blindness in mice and small children. Some patients taking Oramin complain of intense cramping, headaches, and nose bleeds, with sudden nose bleeding being the most common complaint.

Oramin .. when you can't shut up yourself.

krysta jo said...

Maybe you are imagining the cold vibe. It can't be that bad. No one cares in teh long run anyway.

Damfino said...

The return of Deit - my my - so you have been lurking. I hate lurkers! Speak up my children... to live in fear is to live as one who has been uncomfortably propositioned whilst shopping the dairy section of a local grocery store.

I can never eat yogurt again.

KJ - we all love your wonky eye. Endearing for sure.

Flop - get a pic already boyo!

Damfino said...

Notice no one has the ability to handle the Deit onslaught - filthy oramin boy.

Damfino said...

Oh yeah - Flops pee trail comment killed me.

Kern said...

Doesn't it also cause priaprism?

Deit Heimley said...

Kern -- Generally people get what they are looking for. I think you have to ask yourself what you are focusing on. You seem to spend a lot of time focusing on yourself. You are pretty self-absorbed, and that's OK. I'm not saying you are selfish at the expense of others, but your focus is mainly on you and your expiriences. You could meet a girl in a room and not even realize it because you are focused on your own interests in that room.

I bet you that right now, you know three women that you could date. Maybe not have a serious relationship with, but three girls that you can get to know and who WILL set you up on dates with single women they know.

Listen, I have a friend that worked with this guy for several years. She got along with this guy very well, and they lightly flirted. Nothing came of it though because to her mind, her world was complete. She was single, but her every moment was consumed by her art, or her house or her GAY friends. She had no men in her life as even a friend and though she mourned not dating, she never seriously looked. And when she did have dates she would sabotage them by putting unreasonable conditions and expectations on the date.

Then her head gay died. She was left with a hole in her life. So she opened up to this friend of hers from work. Now they are getting married.

The same could probably be said of you. I bet you so complete your own life that you do not make time for new people or expiriences.

Look, I understand being consumed by your art, and I don't mean to say you should give it up, but do realize how your art can complete you in a strange way. You can be married, emotionally, to your art. I sense a lot of that from you.

Oh, and just so everyone knows here ... Wyatt and I are having a child (a boy) in July. We're raising this child with a friend of ours and that this one thing is almost exclusively responsible for my lack of participation in the Damfino world of late.

Kern said...

Wow, congratulations, Deit! That's awesome.

You may be right. Although as I said before, it's been a lot harder for me to make friends up here than it ever was in Des Moines. I think the marriage to my art was a symptom of having such frustration with forging outside relationships rather than the other way around. I got sick of people rejecting me so I used it as a retreat.

Ah, fuck it. It will be what it will be. Like I was saying to my sister the other day, if nothing happens I'm no worse off than I was last week when I had no idea who this girl was. I was great then, and that shouldn't change.

At least I have Kern Returns to look forward to!

Damfino said...

whoa.


whoa.





Deit? Write me an e-amil about this - you have not mentioned a thing to me. This is huge!

Kern said...

Daddy Deit has a nice ring to it.

Kern said...

Also, let it be noted that Jed's dislike of lurkers is only limited to the blog. He enjoys people lurking in his pants.

Thank you.

Damfino said...

Oh Kern... that was lousy.

Kern said...

Sorry, I'm a bit off my game today. Touch distracted and all.

Damfino said...

Hitting the library again eh? Er wait... were you talking about Lyndsay.

Oh yeah - that would entail library work as well.

yo

Kern said...

Tsk tsk tsk, Saucy Jed. You know who she kind of reminds me of though? Faye from Questionable Content.

Not that I lust after comic strip characters. Except for Brenda Starr. She was bloody hot.

Damfino said...

Hmmmm - Lucy. Your lovely black hair....

I have always had a thing for Blondie as well - stupid busty blondes who let me eat like a pig and be as dumb as I want... that sounds like a life.

Faye is yummy too - I thought Dora was hot til I discovered she was not a lesbian at one time... then she just became pathetic.

Kern said...

Dora isn't pathetic! I'm curious as to yr reasoning there. Unless yr just kidding of course. I think she's great for Marten.

If by some strange reason(ha ha) I'm still single when I come back to DM, I sincerely hope that someone invites some attractive young ladies with relaxed morals to the party. I would enjoy that immensely.

FlopTheNuts said...

Congrats, Deit! Fatherhood is great! (Well, has been so far, for me, anyway.)
