Day 362 - Blog Posts I Will Never Write

Day 362.

There are officially only 3 days left of the Lawrence/Julie & Julia Project and I'm realizing that even though I've had almost an entire year to wax lyrical on Julie & Julia, I will never have the time I need to truly plumb the depths of this dense film.


And seeing as I'm pretty much out of time, I thought I'd share some of my left-over blog post ideas with you all--things that have been sitting in a word doc collecting dust--remnants of a time where I used to be excited about doing this thing... a time where I was still a whole man, and not the empty shell I am today.

And yes, I realize that a lot of these ideas would've been better than "Julie & Julia Re-Imagined as Deaf-Mutes," but hey, what do you want me to do? Watching a 2-hour movie every day takes time and energy. 2 hours of time and 9 hours of energy to be exact. Anyways, feel free to use these ideas for your own Julie & Julia blogs:

  • Talk about how watching Julie & Julia every day has affected my perception of French people e.g. "None of them are wearing berets and horizontally striped black and white shirts!"
  • Write a song about Julie & Julia, play/sing it, rake in royalties 
  • Choreograph an interpretive Julie & Julia-themed dance, remake Black Swan with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams, but only record the cunnilingus scene
  • Paint a portrait of Julie & Julia, then superimpose myself into the painting
  • Julie & Julia in a post-modern context (I was going to do this one, but I never figured out what I actually meant when I came up with the idea)
  • Begin a fashion line inspired by Julie/Julia, call it "Butter"
  • Sew an embroidered/cross-stitching about Julie & Julia 
  • Totally bogus inaccuracies and bloopers in Julie & Julia (this probably could have been funny. oh well)
  • Sculpt some sort of ceramic pottery that has to do with Julie & Julia, done in the style of Ghost, with me as Demi and Stanley Tucci as Swayze

 

  • Invent my own recipe with the worst/best items used in Julie & Julia (I probably actually should have done this one)
  • Go to work dressed like Julie and/or Julia
  • Spend a day dressed like Julie/Julia
  • Do other famous movies if they were about blogs – if The Godfather was filmed as a dual-narrative about an old mafia family killing people and a modern-day blogger killing people in honor of Don Corleone.
  • Julie & Julia: A case for women staying in the kitchen (back when I wanted to alienate my entire readership)
  • Dialogue type things where it's Amy Adams' character from other movies placed into Julie & Julia (this also could have been funny, but would've required me to watch other Amy Adams movies... too much Amy Adams)
  • Talk about how Linda Emond, the actress who plays Simca, is one of the few people to have been in all four original Law & Order franchise shows (Law & Order, L&O: SVU, L&O: Criminal Intent, and L&O: Trial by Jury)
  • Do a lesbian reading/interpretation of Julie & Julia, film a lesbian porn based on said reading/interpretation, jack off to own reading/interpretation
  • Start making hats
  • Start playing bridge
  • Visit Julia Child's grave, place butter on it as a tribute a la Julie
  • Churn my own butter to place on Julia Child's grave
  • Dig Julie Powell's grave
  • Pre-emptively pee on the grave I've dug for Julie Powell
  • Live-stream my final viewing, which concludes with me shooting myself in the head

Damn. These are all pretty good ideas for posts. I probably should have worked harder and found the time do these. Fuck that, though. Someone else can take up my mantle. I'm out of this J&J game. For good. I guess I can still do that last one...

Julie & Julia
Quote of the Day: "He spent three days being grilled in a windowless room with a foot-high stack of papers ominously sitting on the table."

  1. Wow, Linda Emond's really been around the Law & Order block.

    This post made me laugh out loud. I would have loved to see more of the Ghost scene, but that picture will have to tide me over for now. Mmmmm, Stanley Tucci's massive head.

  2. *No one* has said you can't go to the final viewing part dressed like Julia Child, or wearing stripy black shirts and a beret.

  3. As a woman, I would never take offense if you suggested that Julie Powell should stay in the kitchen. Just for the record.

  5. I am 100% at your back for this road safety forum you are having. It's a great way of instilling to the people the value of safety when on the road and thus, preventing any accidents from happening. promptessay.com In our country, the rate of minor road accidents seems to rise so this forum would be helpful especially if attended by people mainly using the road for transportation.

  11. La ragione popolarità di ristorante milano è che essi presentano i pasti nel modo più fantasioso e creativo possibile. Ogni piatto è come un'opera d'arte per chef italiani. Sono gli unici ristoranti che producono le pizze da 20 pollici, che hanno respirato varie verdure diverse, frutti di mare, le spezie e carni che non si sarebbe nemmeno pensare di combinare.
