what is flagrance?

Fla´gran`cy . The condition or quality of being flagrant; atrocity; heinousness; enormity; excess.

Flagrance is good! Once upon a time Barra and David decided that if we were to create our own fragrance, we would call it 'Flagrance'. The idea being that it would be flagrantly expensive and flagrantly nice smelling. Well, we don't know how to develop, manufacture, and market a fragrance, so we have made a blog instead. Deal with it!

Jumping Jets

This post has nothing to do with Jets. It is however, this site's 100th post. So I'm gonna sit back and enjoy some Flagorice( it's kinda like liquorice but unlike regular liquorice or marmite, everyone likes it).

Anyway, back to the actual post. This is a trailer for the new Hayden Christiansen movie "Jumper", as you can see, its about a teleporter and all the dirty things he can do with his powers. Surprisingly enough, I think it looks Ok. Samuel L. Jackson appears to be the bad guy, but I can already tell that he's the hero of this story, he's the only one trying to stop Christensen from doing anything retarded with his power. Pretty good cast in this movie, as an actor I really like Michael Rooker (the dad in the movie), I can't say the same for liking him as a person, we have a long and bumpy history....me and that guy.
Rachel Bilson is thrown in there as a pretty face and Also Jamie Bell dons a sort of Scottish/Irish accent for the movie. Don't really know why, maybe its to showcase his acting talent of not really getting an accent dead on. oh well

Flagrant Body Art

Ok, body art is just a fancy word for tatoo, but I'm going to use it, so deal with it. I am a Star Wars nerd at heart, and seeing something like this really brings a tear to my eye, thank you anonymous tatoo artist. That is flagrant Fandom at its best.

Get yourself some Justice!

Whats happening my 24 hour party people? I'll tell you what, Justice thats what. This a song called "D.A.N.C.E" by the french electro house group, Justice. They're pretty amazing, so good infact that they are helping me to procrastinate on doing any college work.. oh well. Anyway, this song is good, but they have way better ones like: "One minute to midnight", "Genesis", "Let there be light", "We are your friends" and "Party feat. Uffie".
Just download or "buy" them and thank me later....or don't, (ungrateful plebs)

Don't forget to check out our friends blog, he's finally put it to use. It used to be under the links bar but we took it down a while ago. If he keeps up the good work, he will get a place in our prestigious links.

An actual recorded case of Flagrance.

This is the new Snoop Dogg song, Sexual Eruption (Sexual Seduction is the censored version. I know that a lot of people wont like this song but I don't care, because I like it, and thats what matters....peasant! Its a bold move from the rap that he usually does and for his efforts I'm going to send him a Blue Peter badge (don't worry snoop, its already in the mail). The video is a great example of 1980's flagrance and thats why I like it even more, although I haven't a clue what the tube is doing in his mouth (much appreciated if someone can tell me its relevance).

Stephen Colbert

Since the summer I have been watching Stephen Colbert's TV show "The Colbert Report" on ifilm.com. For those who haven't seen it, it is a parody news programme similar(ish) to The Daily Show with John Stewart. On it, Stephen Colbert (in character)impersonates right wing news personalities like Bill O'Reilly. About a month ago on his show he announced that he would be running in the Presidential Nomination race for both the Democrat and Republican parties - but only in the state of South Carolina (where he's from). A couple weeks later, the Democrats announced they wouldn't be letting him run.

The reason I'm writing about him isn't because his show is so funny (which it is), but because as a result of his announcement, he started doing a lot of TV interviews in character. This brings me to my point: while on his TV show he has writers, the interview situations are off-the-cuff and I love his ability to improvise and keep a straight face. He never gets stuck!

Here is an interview that I really liked on a serious show called "Meet the Press". Even thought Stephen Colbert is in character, the interviewer tries to treat it like an interview with any other political candidate. Its so funny, check it out, there are 2 parts:

Part 1

Part 2

The Fog of War

This documentary is called: The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara

I saw this on tv a couple years ago and thought it was really interesting. It is basically a long interview with Robert McNamara who was the U.S. Secretary of Defense during Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War. These days a lot of the responsibility and blame for losing the vietnam war is placed on him. I guess this is a rare type of documentary because how often do you get such an indepth first hand account about such a major world event?

I haven't rewatched much of it yet but if I remember rightly, this documentary also has a really good musical score. If you have the time I hope you watch it and enjoy it.

Great quote from the documentary:

*On the fire-bombing of Japanese cities towards the end of WW2*
"[Airforce General Curtis] LeMay said if we'd lost the war, we'd all have been prosecuted as war criminals. And I think he's right! He, and I'd say, I, were behaving as war criminals.

LeMay recognised that what he was doing would be thought immoral if his side had lost, but what makes it immoral if you lose and not immoral if you win?"
