Weekanerd NYC: Michel Gondry, Airbender, and College Classics

Friday, May 9
Is Michel Gondry ever NOT doing a public appearance in New York? Seriously, living in this city he's difficult to avoid. He'll be screening clips of his films, probably show some classic music vids, and talk about what it's like to be a famous French visionary. An acquaintance of mine who worked on one of his videos said that he witnessed Michel's brother Oliver directing the whole production, so maybe if you go you can get confrontational and ask him if he's just been hiding behind his brother's genius the whole time. Then again, this clip is a pretty strong indicator that he does in fact put the man-hours into his music videos...

Airbender and the best college movie ever, after the jump...

Kids love the Airbender! So do a lot of the 20-something guys I know. I have no idea what they'll be showing here, but the screening will be 90 minutes long.

You know, I can't vouch for Animal House, I've never seen it, a little before my time. PCU however, is great. Jeremey Piven's finest role, Entourage be damned. Also certainly Jon Favreau's best performance. Best use of David Spade ("Earth to tall bitch!"). Best cinematic use of the Parliament Funkadelic. Good times. Plus free popcorn.

Geekanerd, why are you too lazy to post on the weekends? I want to know what you think of the new Buffy comic.

Really cool blogs like God That's Good post things on the weekend. Step it up, guys.
