Double Fault

I just spent an hour writing an entry that disappeared when my browser crashed. Hate. Anger. Etc.

I just have two questions blazing through my head this morning:

1) Why the fuck did The World tell me I just HAD to switch to Firefox? Does The World hate me? Does The World love slow dickbag browsers that hang up and freeze and crash constantly? Is this some bullshit about malleability and programmability and open sourceness and bullshit like that? If that is indeed the case, is there a single compelling reason for someone who just wants, like, a new window to actually open when they hit Open Apple+N to use Firefox?

2) Last night we saw the entertaining-by-recent-Woody-Allen-pics standards / genre semi-parody Match Point. If there is a worse actor on the planet than Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, can somebody please name them? (And don't say Father Mulcahy from M*A*S*H, the little girl from Small Wonder, or Heather Graham. I already thought of them.)

If you really want to use a Firefox-based browser on a Mac, Camino is the way to go.

On the other hand, I don't see what's wrong with Safari. Don't listen to the Safari-haters, or (more likely) the blind-faith Firefox-boosters. Firefox is way better than Internet Explorer on Windows, but Safari is so not Internet Explorer.

Eric Braeden. I'm a terrible judge of acting, because I always think if they can deliver their lines without looking at the camera or chopping off their words like a robot, then they're probably okay (I know, I know). Eric Braeden is so bad that even I can see it.

What's wrong with Safari is that it isn't supported by the Gap corporate family of websites, and sometimes you really just want to order your Old Navy teeshirts online, damn it.

The little girl from Small Wonder was great.

Worst actor on the planet? Death knocked for the wrong Belushi. I'm just saying.

Another vote for Camino. Firefox crashes the hell out of my PowerBook, but Camino's a great substitute. If you're willing to drop a few bucks, OmniWeb's well worth it.

Now, that all depends on which girl from Small Wonder you mean.

The robot girl was excellent. A little girl who can convincingly play a robot? Genius!

The red-headed girl, however, is a different story. I was never fond of her.

There is NO actor worse that Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. He is absolutely horrible. (Thanks for the opportunity to finally share that opinion!)

Aw, I liked Father Mulcahy. I always wanted to go up and give him a hug. Okay, I *know* there's a reason he never worked again, but still...

This anonymous agrees with Stee and the other anonymous - I don't know how people can watch Jonathan Rhys-Meyers curl his lips while talking through his teeth and call that acting.

What has happened to the robot girl? Well, she ran a marathon in 1997 and was on an episode of Parker Lewis Can't Lose--I guess it all comes back to Nemec. Also? She beat out Candace Cameron and Heather O'Rourke for the robot part, all according to IMDB, of course. As for another horrible actor, Drake Hogestyn from DOOL. Horrible and he thinks he's good!

Jonahan Rhys-Meyers is an awful horrible actor, but so pretty.

Aw, I like Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, but that's probably only because I really really really love Bend It Like Beckham, and I like him in it.

But . . . really, that's my only basis to judge, although I thought the fact that he cast as Elvis pretty was pretty funny.

And, hi? Ben Affleck? Worst. Actor. Ever.

I would call a whole bunch of the people that starred on Baywatch, Pacific Blue and *tries to think of a third horrible show but can't* bad actors. But then again, they weren't wearing much, so a lot of people probably were paying attention to ther things than their acting skills.

I'm going to have to wax nostalgic and cast a vote for Rick Rossovich - sure, it's been a while since he's been in anything that anyone's watched, but his "performances" in Top Gun and Roxanne remain, in my mind, the Gold Standard for shitbag acting.
