gashole

I'm watching Gashole, which is a movie about the American Oil Crisis, and quite good. But (get this!) Joshua Jackson is featured in it, which has been my number 1 celebrity crush since I first watched The Mighty Ducks as a little kid. I was THRILLED Pacey got Joey. I am totally weak in the knees, cause how often does your offbeat, random, movie star end up in a movie about Peak Oil? What's next? Is Demetri Martin going to fund a doc about backyard Chickens?! So here I am in my pj's, with a cart horse outside my living room window, in the middle of nowhere, 100% tuned in to that voice and loving every minute of it.

Sigh.

Sigh, indeed! I love "Fringe" for many reasons but he is definitely a big draw. Besides, you gotta love a major network show with a cow in it even if she is in a lab and not on a farm.

Gashole sounds like a good documentary! I'll have to find it at the library, now!

... "American" Oil Crisis? Perhaps it would be more sensitive to reword that to "a movie about the effects of the Global Oil Crisis on America" or "with a focus on America".

I love your blog Jenna, but that literally made me cringe...

I saw Joshua Jackson on stage in London with Patrick Stewart. Poor Josh paled in comparison to Mr. Stewart, but it was still cool to wait to get both their autographs afterward. A friend of mine asked Joshua which Mighty Ducks movie was his favorite and he said definitely the first one. :-) Aaaah, those Mighty Duck memories...

Cherie? It's a movie about American inventions, coups, cars, and critics and how it effected this nation's economy. that wasn't a statement about the effects of global oil, that's just what the documentary is about...

Ah love Pacey too! This post just brought up all the memories of Dawson's Creek and how obsessed I was over it all...

I too usually listen to NPR in the mornings but I like the idea of doing Cash instead. I am sure my parrots would probably agree. :0

I just watched Gashole. Thanks for the tip! I'm very much into documentaries, political and otherwise. The film confirms most every other thing I've read/seen about the monopolistic corporatism that runs this country. I'm not surprised by the level to which they stoop. Good documentary.

Oh! BTW, I found it on Hulu for free.
