Happy Oscars! Me Making Fun of Juno

The lovely gentlemen over at Olde English asked me to play stripper turned Oscar nominated screenwriter, Diablo Cody. Now I have nothing against Diablo Cody. I have read her blog and seen her on Letterman and she seems like a bright quirky woman. And she seems to realize that her sudden fame and success is a little random and nuts.

I haven't seen "Juno." I probably should but I've seen "Knocked Up" and all of Wes Anderson's movies so I figure I've seen it. I'm having a backlash against this current trend in movies that fetishize unplanned pregnancy as this thing that happens to women as a hilarious plot device. This theme reminds me of the fantasy world Kevin Smith created in "Chasing Amy," a movie I liked. But it was hard to ignore the insane chubby male fantasy that Smith created: only Ben Affleck can cure lesbianism.

So instead of Juno I saw "4 Months, 3 Weeks, 3 Days." (Here's a link to a great J Hoberman review of the film.) A movie I refer to as "the Romanian abortion movie." Now this was a pregnancy movie I could get behind. It was dark, disturbing and truly haunting. I give it two thumbs up!

But I am getting away from the point. Juno. Diablo Cody. Video.

Part of me feels bad about the Diablo Cody backlash. I do think misogyny plays a part of it. It is also hard to feel bad for a woman who has used stripping so masterfully as a way to further her writing career. She strikes me as bright and thick-skinned and appears to be taking this all in stride. I mean she would have to, you don't work as a stripper in Minnesota of all places, and not realize the world is an unjust place.

So here is the OE video about Diablo Cody. It features me, my boobs, my crazy eyes and a horrifying wig.




Thanks to the good people over at Jezebel for posting a link. Definitely look at the Jezebel post, the comments are insightful and funny.

Ok, first - hilarious. Your best straight-to-NET segment in a hundred trillion years.

Secondly, how do you feel about the passionate hatred Julie seems to have for Diablo/Juno?

Brilliant! Now you must mock the fact that Cody shook Ellen page's hand en route to the stage for her Oscar, but totally denied Jennifer Garner who sat perched in eager anticaption of a Diabolic (get it?) hug. Do IT!

"a stripper in Minnesota of all places"

I live in Minneapolis and let me tell you - even though this is "fly over country" to most people on either coasts, there is no shortage of strippers, debauchery, sin, and fun here. We also have more theaters per capita than anywhere except Broadway in NYC. And Minneapolis and St. Paul were both ranked in the top 5 for "Biggest Drinking Cities" recently. Also quite a nice comedy scene here, but you should know that. We know how to have a good time in this town. In the winter there is not much else to do excpept get fucked up and/or go watch some strippers.
