It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck, the podcast that is gigantic compared to Leigh. But then again, most things are.
Apologies for the recent madness. I've been moving the site to a new server set up. We have close to 200 GB of images, podcasts, and other miscellaneous content that had to be ferried from one place to another. I have a degree in English. If you are thinking to yourself that this sounds like a great pitch for a new, darkly humorous sitcom...then you are correct.
I will spare you the full details of the reasons for the move, but suffice it to say that the old home was very old. and one of the things that you run into with an old server home are people trying to break in. if you run a WordPress site, I urge you to install some form of Limit Logins Plugin...because as I learned from one of [...]
At dawn on November 1st, an explosion goes off in stores across America. Not a chemical or nuclear bomb: a festive bomb. Yes, retailers in their greed and desperation start those jingles and deck the aisles with holly, mistletoe, and every bit of Christmas crap their perverse consumer product researchers can envision. I don't care what the "official" story is, The Elf On The Shelf was imagined by a toy executive after a 72-hour Hunter S. Thompson-inspired drug and hooker binge. This holiday madness has overrun Thanksgiving or The Day Before Black Friday (or Mauve Thursday or whatever the hell it's called). It is only the dark occult power of Halloween that has stopped its advance. Speaking of Halloween, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab gives you the scented tools to grab a little territory from the Kringle-Industrial Complex. Follow us as we peruse the aromatic armory from Black Phoenix. Because Halloween is always in our hearts. It can also be in our noses.

So here we are again. Halloween. And the end of another 32 Days marathon of mayhem. And, no surprise, our movie for tonight is the same as it's always been...much in the same way that Jack Torrance has always been at the Overlook. It's the first flesh-eating zombie movie. The one that spawned an entire industry...which I'm pleased about for multiple reasons. It's Night of the Living Dead. Maybe we'll see you again next year. Enjoy, everybody. Happy Halloween.
Tis the season for the internet to be inundated with articles on the latest in ridiculous 'sexy [blank]' costumes. You know, Sexy Nurse, Sexy Sexy Teacher, Sexy SWAT commando. Even geek culture is not immune from this. Take the picture above. In case they're not obvious (or in case one look was sufficient and you don't wish to repeat the experience), yes, you are seeing Sexy Beetlejuice, Sexy Pikachu from Pokemon, and Sexy Patrick from Spongebob Squarepants. I hate when reality is a better comedy writer than I am.
Now, I am not slut shaming. I am the last person to shame sluts, trust me. But some people for various reasons don't want to expose so much so that the whole world is your gynecologist. Also, some of you want to show some class instead of some ass. So if you're going out tonight or partying this weekend (I know it's November, but hey, any excuse) I thought I would offer a few suggestions on costumes that are geeky and sexy but don't make you look like a streetwalker.
Usually, today is the day I post a bunch of odds and ends that fell out the bottom and didn't fit anywhere else. But then I ran across this video...and it felt like it needed to be shared...and that it would be disrespectful to add anything else to it. Because I think it speaks for itself.
It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck, the podcast that is going to show up at your house tonight to Trick or Treat and by God, you better have some good candy. Or next time we're recording at your place.
As a long distance dedication to Rox, here we go back to Hammer Films for our penultimate night of movies...it's 1956 and X the Unknown. It's written by Hammer scribe Jimmy Sangster (who brought you, among other things, the hammer Dracula) and directed by Leslie Norman (who would go on to direct mostly television, including a slew of Saint episodes). It stars Dean Jagger (Vanishing Point), Edward Chapman (Things to Come) and a relatively young Leo McKern ("Be-at-tle") from early in his career.
The setup is fairly simple and routine for those of us who have been around for eight years now...a creature from prehistory has decided to come up to the surface of the earth to eat radiation. And goes from place to place doing so, like a glowing buffet. But it's old school Hammer, so what's not to like? Enjoy.
