Isn’t it funny when people get all excited about things that aren’t actually happening? Y’know, like Jesus coming back. Speaking of Jesus, his foreskin makes an appearance in Chuck Palahniuk’s Choke, soon to be Clark Gregg’s Chuck Palahniuk’s Choke, soon to be my second favorite Palahniuk adaptation of my least favorite Palahniuk novel.

Red band trailer here.

Anyone who was born between 1980 and 1987, had cable growing up, and is currently stoned should be aware that iTunes just released a bunch of “classic” Nicktoons, including (but not limited to) Doug, Ahh! Real Monsters, Rugrats, and Rocko’s Modern Life. You’ll also find equally rad live action counterparts Clarissa Explains It All and Hey Dude online. It’s like six new ways to say “I’m 23, and I’m sad.”

Issac Hayes died. He was 65. I’m sick of writing about this sort of thing and I think we all know what he contributed to the world etc. So you should probably just check out this New York Times article on it.



NO: FALLEN KING OF COMEDY by zzvvhh

Bernie Mac died today at the age of 50 due to complications from pneumonia. This comes as a shock to me, as I always had compared Bernie Mac to that of a strong Ox of a “King of Comedy”. Bernie came a long way from “Moesha” and his own “Bernie Mac Show” all the way to “Bad Santa” and the “Ocean’s Eleven” series. He was always funny and never a sell out. If I could somehow get the voice in my head to sound like his, I would.

NO: FIRST BUMMER STORY OF THE OLYMPICS by zzvvhh

Well, we just got through the spectacle that was the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics and we already have, (as I suspected) our first bummer story. Apparently a Chinese man attacked two American tourists at the Drum Tower in Beijing and managed to kill one of them. He then threw himself from the building and died. No medals. Just shitty news.

Anyone else wanna place a bet one what the next controversial story/tragedy will be?

Okay, for some reason animated GIFs don’t work on the fron page of this site (what up, WordPress?!?), but click the image above to witness the glory that is Frank Dux and Chong Li rocking the house in a scene that somehow didn’t make it into the final version of The Greatest Story Ever Told.
