The BIZARRO Blog-a-Thon

I am officially declaring the days August 27th-29th as Bizarro Days. On those three days up will be down. Right will be wrong. Black will be white. Bad performances will suddenly be good. The worst movie will be the best. The saddest movie will be the funniest. And for those three days I may actually like Rob Zombie.

Show me how much you hate some actor by telling me how much you love him/her. Give your favorite movie the worst review you've ever given. Declare Martin Scorsese the biggest hack to ever get behind the camera. Whatever you want, just bring your worst (and of course I mean your best).


E-mail ppiper@barkleyus.com if you're interested and I'll send an e-mail the day before to remind you.

Bad Bye

Aww man, August? I was ready to start typing away!

I like the Seinfeld episode, "The Bizarro Jerry," especially when Elaine asks if Bizarro was black.

Great idea, Piper. I've considered writing stuff like this before (for example, I almost wrote a piece to try to convince myself that Annie Hall, one of my favorite films, was in fact pure garbage, but then I thought, "What if I ruin it for myself?").

I know, but the calendar is filling up fast and I wanted to get some time set.

So write a bunch of stuff early and have it ready.

Terrible idea! I might have to write my review of Zombie's "Werewolf Women of the SS."

My brain hurts... [spins; falls down and passes out]

This is easily the crappiest, least inspired idea I've heard all month. I'm ashamed to know you and I'll never read this site again.

You won't hear from me in August. No way.

PIPER said...


I'm horribly insulted you son of a bitch.

J.D. said...

You all suck. Big time.

Escept you, Piper. You're great.

Count me in, Piper. So many choices. Should I slam Schindler's List or examine the brilliant subtext of Lindsay Lohan in Just My Luck?


omg. please examine the brilliant subtext of lindsay lohan in just my luck.

i haven't the strength but somebody should!

PIPER said...

Wait guys.

So does that mean Lindsay Lohan wasn't brilliant?

I'm confused. And this is my blog a thon.

Burbanked said...

Damnit. I was going to trace the breadth of Lohan's acting instrument spanning her oeuvre from innocently precocious twin-hijinks to coke-addled stripper-whore, but now that idea is shot.

And as for you, Piper, your site just gets worse every day. How do you live with yourself?
