Matthew Bellamy of Muse
It’s also Muse lead singer Matthew Bellamy’s birthday today as well! If you don’t know the Muse song “Uprising,” I recommend that you memorize the lyrics and vote for that song to become the national anthem of the world. “THEY WILL NOT FORCE US! THEY WILL STOP DEGRADING US! THEY WILL NOT CONTROL US! WE WILL BE VICTORIOUS! SO COME ON!!!!!”
NYC! Head over to the Wix Lounge (located at 10 West 18th Street in Manhattan to see Borbay’s latest exhibit “Kick Ass Actors in Kick Ass Roles.” There is so much detail in the paintings, photos don’t do these works justice.

Borbay happily posed with my favorite work in the exhibit “Hunter S. Depp” at the opening reception, which was also kick ass!

If you don’t see “Kick Ass,” we may just have to come and kick your ass. Just kidding. But seriously folks, go see this exhibit!

Happy birthday to one of the greatest living actors, Johnny Depp. He doesn’t know it yet, but he’s going to star in a movie that a very talented writer that I know wrote. I can’t spill all the beans, but let’s just say this – the film franchise is going to be HUGE! Get ready!
As you all know by now, I am a movie curmudgeon. Typically when I like a film, the rest of the world dislikes it and vice versa. With that being said, I enjoyed Tim Burton’s take on Alice in Wonderland. It’s being universally panned by critics, which is no surprise to me. Seeing the film in 3-D is the way to go, according2g. Johnny Depp looks like Madonna circa Ray of Light in every scene he is in, but he has an annoying lisp. Helena Bonham Carter is great as the Red Queen and it might be worth the price of admission alone just to see her with a huge head and a tiny body. If you are a Tim Burton fan, you’ll love the darkness and imagery he brings to this film, and as usual, Danny Elfman’s score is a work of genius. In the original Disney cartoon, there were many more images of overt drug taking and sexual situations which seem to be absent in this version, but the colorful visions in this 3-D version will provide you with a fun experience. On a scale of A to G, Alice in Wonderland gets a nice solid B.
