I Saw Social Network! In Other News, Oh God The Hindenburg!

My name is Nat Topping, and I am the last person to see Social Network.

I am now in an awkward position, which is this: after seeing a movie like Social Network, I would normally like to run out and talk about it with other people.  But since everyone has seen the movie already, I would just be opening myself up to criticism.

'Really?  You're just now talking about Social Network?  That movie has been out for like half a year, hasn't it?'

Yes, it's been out since October.  But I didn't have a chance to see it in October and now I have and doesn't anyone else want to talk about it?  I promise I'll have witty and interesting things to say about it!  Honest, I will!

But no, nobody wants to talk about Social Network.  Because everyone on the planet has already had their Social Network discussion moments.  Everyone's already debated whether or not Mark Zuckerberg is a douchebag.  Everyone's already questioned whether Justin Timberlake did a good job as Sean Parker because he's suddenly a good actor or because he himself is also a douchebag.  Everyone's already posted their Facebook "I'm watching Social Network while posting on Facebook" wall posts.

It would be like me running up to people and saying "Hey, have you kids seen that new Annie Hall movie?  Boy howdie, that Woody Allen sure knows how to write!"

Just saw that new Citizen Kane movie and it was amazing.  Everybody rush out to your nearest movie house!  It's worth the 50 cent price of admission, and if you stay after you can check out one of them new Looney Toons!

To sum up, I suck.

But at least I wrote a blog post today.

Come spend an hour with us as we relive our short lived glory sketches in an ‘unplugged’ environment. There will be sketches and songs and even a staged reading of something too inappropriate to be staged. And as always the show ends catastrophically.

See? Unplugged! Like Aerosmith!
