No Strings Attached
All your favorite songs from the #1 hit romantic comedy No Strings Attached!
is the new sex comedy with Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman. As Tom Brazelton so aptly put it in a recent Theater Hopper comic
, this is a good thing. It’s like Ms. Portman is getting all her sexy out before her impending marriage and child.
So, anyhow – even if you’ve not seen Portman and Kutcher get all naughty, then develop feelings for one another, you can still appreciate the soundtrack. It has bedroom jams like Color Me Badd’s “I Wanna Sex You Up” and D’Angelo’s “Untitled (How Does It Feel),” meaning you, too, can get your freak on.

Every time I watch any of the Jackass movies or clips from the episodes, I can’t help but remember the time my friends pushed me down the street in a shopping cart. When it stopped in a sewer drain, I shot out out. Had I not tucked and rolled (and gone limp), I probably would’ve been hurt like hell. As it is, Jackass is a reminder that no matter how much you tell kids, “It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye,” there are always those kids who wonder exactly what it takes to lose that eye.

Another week, another contest. This time, it’s for a copy of the soundtrack for Hung, HBO’s series about a high school athletic coach turned male prostitute which recently started its second season. As the press release I received states:
“Created by Dmitry Lipkin and Colette Burson, HUNG uses dark humor to tell the story of Ray Drecker, a divorced dad and middle-aged basketball coach who is fighting to survive personal setbacks that have been compounded by a troubled economy. The well-endowed Drecker decides to exploit his best asset in a last-ditch effort to reverse his fortunes.”
The winner of the contest gets a copy of the soundtrack, featuring music by the Black Keys, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Loretta Lynn, et al and a “Happiness Consultants” t-shirt, which you can see to your left. To enter, send an e-mail with “Hung Contest” in the subject line to nicholas dot spacek at gmail dot com. The contest ends Sunday at 5:00 p.m., and the winner will be announced Monday.
Sorry about the lack of new stuff lately. It’s wedding season amongst our friends, and Thing 1 and Thing 2 have birthdays two weeks apart, meaning the Nuthouse’s weekends are booked all through July. We’ve also been sick, meaning productivity is way down.
As a way of making up, we’ve got another soundtrack giveaway for you all, once again courtesy of Lakeshore Records. We’ve got two copies of the Dinner For Schmucks soundtrack, which has a Theodore Shapiro score, as well as a new song from the wonderful Sondre Lerche entitled “Dear Laughing Doubters.”
I’m not usually down with seeing comedies in the theater, but man…this has Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, as well as the amazing comedy talents of Zach Galifianakis, Jemaine Clement, and Kristen Schaal. Those latter three in one film are enough to sell me on it, and help me ignore the fact that I saw Jeff Dunham in the trailer, as well.
Send an e-mail to nicholas dot spacek at gmail dot com with the subject line “Dinner For Schmucks” by Friday at 5pm Central, and we’ll announce the winners next Monday.
