Trailer [27 Aug 2009|05:17pm]
Hey all,

Here's the trailer - looks promising. Gotta love seeing Cera with his awkward pornstache. Also, I was personally way stoked to hear the Old 97's song 'Timebomb' play at the end - hope it's in the movie, too. Oh and seeing Fred Willard was great, too. This movie has two of the all-time best actors when it comes to playing the nervous/oblivious guy...

Get ready all you Twispians, because Cinematical has just received this exclusive teaser poster for Youth in Revolt, which stars Michael Cera as the ultra-angsty (and legendary) Nick Twisp and is based on one of my favorite books of all time. Ah, what can you say about Youth in Revolt? The book, written by C.D. Payne, has amassed a huge, cult-like following partly because we can all relate to being an awkward teenager who'd do anything to capture the love of that special someone, and also because it's just damn funny.

For those who haven't read the book (seriously, read it -- the thing is hilarious), Youth in Revolt follows the misadventures of a love-sick teen who stops just short of destroying the world in order to win the love of one Sheeni Saunders. Cera plays said teen, Nick Twisp, while newcomer Portia Doubleday plays Sheeni. The film also boasts a pretty impressive supporting cast, including Steve Buscemi (as Nick's seedy, trailer-trash father), Zach Galifianakis, Justin Long, Fred Willard, Ray Liotta, Jean Smart and Ari Graynor. Needless to say, I cannot wait to see this cast bring some of these wacky, ridiculous (and memorable) characters to life, and I'm sure you Revolt fans are right there with me.

Youth in Revolt hits theaters on October 30. Click the image below to view entire poster.

A Joke From The Set Of Youth In Revolt [24 May 2009|03:21am]


I'm 95% sure this is a joke, because Michael Cera is the type who would make everyone work to make a video like this. x]

Thanks a pantsful! [11 Mar 2009|11:40pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

Hello Everyone.

So I'm a few pages away from finishing "Youth In Revolt" and I must say it's been one hell of a ride.

The absurdities Nick manages to get himself in to!

Curious to see how all (or most) of these adventures will translate onto film, which, by the way, I will be watching tomorrow in Sherman Oaks.

I don't know how or where my friend scored the pair of tickets to this "special screening" of the movie, but I will be joining him.

"You two are destined to cleave. It's in the stars."

Lysistrata Revisited [11 Apr 2007|03:14am]

[ mood | quixotic ]

Lysistrata Revisited

By Indi Riverflow

The civil struggle over the invasion of Iraq has finally reached the grass roots. The peace movement, enlivened by the return of the two-party system (what, is it a democracy again, all of a sudden?) are reviving folksy tactics from the sixties, such as sit-ins and marches, in a quaint push to demand an immediate end to the occupation.

We have die-ins, candlelit vigils, rowdy rallies, and mock occupations of congressional offices. A courageous group, here on the West Coast, has been harassing dovish Democratic representatives, urging them to take a harder line on troop withdrawal, on the theory that Republicans are likelier to call the cops. But if we really want to stop the war, people, the protest is going to have to span from the boardrooms to the bedrooms.

Read On!Collapse )

Great series....I just finished Young and Revolting. Which...to be honest, made me very teary eyed at the end.  Not to go into detail, but does Revoltingly Young make you feel all warm and happy inside again? Hmm.

Blues4Kali- A Cult Classic for the End Times [28 Jan 2007|02:00am]

[ mood | creative ]

What will Winter Solstice bring in

...an instant of Karma? ...an ethereal spiral dance of the collective soul? ... cosmic judgment leveled against civilization's expanse? ...destruction of the world as we know it? ...a chance for a new start? ...the rise and the revenge of the Goddess? or simply another day in the life of paranoia?
These are the false prophesies that your pastor warned you about!

Reality Exchange Program

"Makes DMT seem like a whip-it."

Crazy Bear said there'd be days like this. As usual, no one believed him. Now, all I want to know is: where IS that lifeboat, and how DO I ditch this ship of fools, without any of these bliss ninnies noticing that I'm already gone?

Captain, my ass. We are equal in this sea of madness.

That iceberg is looking awfully big.

New Age Metaphysical Books

Amana Mission is on a quest to save the world, and the only problem is, she can't remember why she got involved with such an obvious scam in the first place. Jesus saves. Christ. What a loser.

Kali kills first, and recycles later.

Hitchhikers, load up for a ride to the Other Side. You may wish you had gone Greyhound.

"What the...?"

*A cranky band of prankster peace warriors who absolutely cannot resist messing with each other's minds, no matter the cost.

*Cocky alchemy-dabbling quantum surfers, navigating the Ethersphere with hand-held computers, switching timelines to find a better party vibe and swap tips about the best temporary toilets for use as interdimensional portals.

*A burnt-out visionary hippie millionaire on a mission from Gaia to build a better "communitopia" by underwriting a convoy carrying telepathic priestesses.

*A wheelchair-bound mindpilot propelling a crystal-powered Seed Bank toward the post-Apocalyptic Garden, with psychic precision...and a predilection for high-velocity extreme driving.

*Hermaphrodite time-jumper fleeing a fate worse than death.

*Anarchist ghettoes where anything goes-except escape.

*Ancient Principals vying like sweatsoaked carpetbaggers for our loyalty as the Final Vote is tallied.

*Long-haired security patrols collecting a cannabis tribute tax from all pilgrims to the Valley of Fun.

*And an underground meat mafia bringing a black magic revival to a bloodless dreamworld gone bland.

All brought together by a secret psychedelic superdrug that tunes users in to reality through the eyes of another archetypal avatar inhabiting a different state of space and time. Mahayana made easy. Budding Buddha natures are running amuck on a virtual superhighway where all roads lead to the Bo tree and singularity.

Twenty-first century Tantra is about more than sex, drugs, and
rock and roll.Confronting the Karma of every wasted breath is only the first step.

Welcome to the End Times. Kali awaits. She already knows who you are.

Do you?

The 21st century counterculture is even weirder than it appears on the surface. This is not your mommy’s MTV Road Rules. Satire Parody and Humor.

Ride along on this mesmerizing, metaphor-packed bus trip toward ecstasy and enlightenment, as three real-time guides-Amana, Sissy, and Deva, let you in on what they learned when they asked what It was really all about, after all.

Become them for a multilevel metafictional tour of infinity and awaken yourself to the miracle-a-minute magic of mighty Mother Kali!

[ mood | busy ]

I need some money for school, and since working as a grocery clerk isn't enough, I have some political/activist/philosophical books to sell (for very little money, I assure you). If you have the time/cash to read, check out my online shop. Also, for the hell of it...

I just got this doneCollapse )

A Youth in Revolt community? I'm so in. So I stumbled across this literary masterpiece some 4 years ago, when I found it lying on the floor of my cousin's room. She had raved about how hilarious and great it was, but I didn't actually pick up a copy for myself until about 2 years later. It was weird. I was on barnesandnoble.com, and all of a sudden, out of nowhere, the name C.D. Payne just popped into my head. I guess it was still etched into my brain ever since that confrontation 2 years prior, and my subconscious mind was just waiting for the right opportunity to spit that name back out at me. It's a good thing it did. Best. Book. Ever. I actually lent it to a friend of mine last year, and she loved it too. A few months ago she asked to borrow it once again, and, being the generous person I am, I willingly obliged. After a little while I started to suffer from withdrawal, so I asked if she was done with it. She shrugged off the question for about a month, until she finally (this was about 2 weeks ago) admitted that she lost it. She ordered a new copy for me, which I appreciate, but I still have such an attachment to my original copy. I'm still getting over the loss...and am consequently looking for the right opportunity to beat up said friend.

hi i'm new. i was just browsing a half price books on friday, spotted youth in revolt & after reading the description, purchased it about five minutes later (i had not heard of it before). i'm on page 378 (sheeni & carlotta are doing anagrams at lunch) & i really love it so far. one thing that really bothers me, though, is sheeni. at first she seemed really sweet & sincere, but it seems like she is weaving a huge bed of lies & then gets mad at nick when everything he's done is out of love for her. i just don't trust her, but i might have spoken too soon. anyway, hi. i just wanted to put my two cents in. :)

[ mood | awake ]

Hello all. My name's Ashley, I'm new. Youth in Revolt is my favorite book of all time. I read it a year or two ago and still re-read it if I feel the urge. I have read the second one which is also very funny, and now I hear there's a third one? Cut the Twisp or something? Did that already come out? Anyways, just thought I'd say hello to my fellow YiR fans out there.

My One And Only Love. [03 Mar 2004|03:17pm]

Oh god, I read Youth In Revolt about a month ago, I was in a treatment center in Miami and a girl there told me I'd love it and she lent me her copy. I completely fell in love with it and as soon as I got home, I bought it and Revolting Youth, which I'm reading now. I'm completely insane over how perfect Nick Twisp is. I would totally want his sex. Agreed?
