I love when a concise headline tells the whole story. The only thing it doesn’t convey is how he looked when it went down. But we’ve got you covered there, courtesy of TMZ. As if you needed a frame of reference, the above pic is Jason London perhaps before, during, or after pooping himself, while below is a picture of Jason London looking very handsome. The differences are subtle, but many.

The story has it that London sneezed on a bouncer, then, instead of apologizing, punched the bouncer, then London was beat up by three bouncers, then arrested, then he called the police a lot of homophobic slur-names, then Jason told the cops that the inside of the car smelled like diarrhea, then he pooped his pants, then he woke up the next day and didn’t remember any of it.

Awesome.

Today’s the last day to party balls before getting wrapped up in all this Lent hogwash, so make it count. Might I suggest some sort of party, as they enjoy so much in New Orleans?

Taking inventory of parties in film is pretty much a step-by-step guide on how to throw a good party, but planning isn’t enough. The greatest parties in film and in our lives thrive on an intangible spontaneity that not even Martha Stewart could curate. Catching that lightning in a bottle, be it an impromptu beer bust, a sociopathic athlete, or a girl dying of a cocaine overdose, is the key to taking a party from good to great. I could prattle on about this, but the examples serve to do most of the heavy lifting here.

The House Party in Any Given Sunday

I’m guessing that Oliver Stone drew from the Dallas Cowboys parties of lore when he conceived this scene that is decadent enough to make Charlie Sheen blush. This party has tons of whorish women, athletes in silk shirts talking on cell phones, and, of course, sharks.

This scene is only later trumped by the one in which Lawrence Taylor’s character cuts Steamin’ Willie Beamen’s yellow Tahoe in half with a buzzsaw. Hmmm. Sharks or cars being cut in half? That’s a choice truly worthy of Solomon.

House Party 2’s Pajama Jammy Jam

Not every party on this list has to be depraved. Sometimes, you just want to kick back with some friends in your PJ’s, hang out with some non-threatening black dudes, and innocently pursue chaste women. It’s pretty much like a seventh-grade mixer. No. It’s exactly like a seventh-grade mixer, only with more high-top fades than I remember.

This party trades in safety. You’re not going to OD or get stabbed at this party. You might lose a dance-off, but rest assured that the winner will graciously give you a friendly eleven-step handshake and a hug when it’s all over. Having Martin Lawrence in attendance is a wild card nowadays, but back then the only way he would cause any trouble is if you kept bumping his DJ table.

If you’re worried about whether or not these guys gonna hurt nobody, let me save you some time – they ain’t gonna hurt nobody.

This Music Video Starring Matthew McConaughey’s ‘Wooderson’ Suggests He Too Might Stay The Same Age http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/this-music-video-starring-matthew-mcconaugheys-wooderson-suggests-he-too-might-stay-the-same-age/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/this-music-video-starring-matthew-mcconaugheys-wooderson-suggests-he-too-might-stay-the-same-age/#comments Mon, 23 Jan 2012 14:00:57 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=243207 Hello, old friend.

This story doesn’t need any snark, nor any particular insight. It stands on its own merit.

In a new music video, Matthew McConaughey has reprised his legendary Dazed and Confused character Wooderson, the man who keeps getting older even though high school girls stay the same age, and who thinks it would be a lot cooler if you had a joint on ya.

The appearance comes in Butch Walker and the Black Widows’ video for “Synthesizers,” a song that sounds just like “Come On Eileen,” but updated for 2012. The song is so-so, but seeing Wooderson again is a flat-out revelation. He’s rocking the same look, and 18 years later, Matthew McConaughey doesn’t look as though he’s changed a bit.

His advice for looking so young?

Just keep livin’, man. L-I-V-I-N.

That time-honored tradition of college hazing is back in the news, as the director of Florida A&M’s band (yup, bands haze) has been fired after one of the band members died in an incident that is thought to be hazing related. Details about the death aren’t yet known, other than the 26 year-old band member was complaining about not being able to breathe on the bus after a game, then vomited and passed out.

Hazing has been depicted in films throughout the years, most often in movies about college life or the military. And while sometimes it does cost the involved parties their lives (indirectly), nothing depicted on this list ever caused a death (save for A Few Good Men).

See for yourself.
