It’s Here!

And so the most-anticipated Hollywood premier of The X-Files: I Want to Believe came. It happened last July 23 (24 here) in Los Angeles at Grauman’s Chinese Theater. I wasn’t able to watch the live broadcast but I just contented myself with viewing the pictures and videos of the event. And boy, the photos are fabulous! Now I know the movie has gotten mixed reviews in the US. Some X-philes might not liked the movie but I don’t care. There’s no way I’m going to miss this one. As soon as XF 2 is released here in August, I’ll be there to watch it. In the meantime, here are just some of my favorite photos from the Hollywood premier:

What I Want is Pork and Beans

I like Weezer’s new song, “Pork and Beans” not only because of its catchy beat but also because of its lyrics. The song succinctly expresses what I’m feeling these days. Though the lyrics are quite amusing, it actually says a lot about doing the things that you love without other people telling you what you should do. The song also has an amusing video which features certain personalities like K-Fed and that You Tube girl who made a tearful plea to the papparrazzi to leave Britney alone. Anyway, I have no idea if the band actually loves pork and beans or whether they chose this certain dish for some reason.

Pork and Beans
(by Weezer)

They say I need some Rogaine to put in my hair
work it out at the gym to fit my underwear
Oakley makes the shades to transform a tool
You’d hate for the kids to think that you lost your cool

I’ma do the things that I want to do.
I ain’t got a thing to prove to you.
I eat my candy with the pork and beans,
Excuse my manners if I make a scene.

I ain’t gonna wear the clothes that you like.
I’m fine and dandy with the me inside.
One look in the mirror and I’m tickled pink
I don’t give a hoot about what you think.

Everyone likes to dance to a happy song
With a catchy chorus and beat so they can sing along
Timbaland knows the way to reach the top of the chart
Maybe if I work with him I can perfect the art

I’ma do the things that I want to do.
I ain’t got a thing to prove to you.
I eat my candy with the pork and beans,
Excuse my manners if I make a scene.

I ain’t gonna wear the clothes that you like.
I’m fine and dandy with the me inside.
One look in the mirror and I’m tickled pink
I don’t give a hoot about what you think.

No, I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care

I’ma do the things that I want to do.
I ain’t got a thing to prove to you.
I eat my candy with the pork and beans,
Excuse my manners if I make a scene.

I ain’t gonna wear the clothes that you like.
I’m fine and dandy with the me inside.
One look in the mirror and I’m tickled pink
I don’t give a hoot about what you think.
