Burger King the Movie: We Never Should Have Played God

Burger King: Where is your God now?

It's already been well established that we are responsible for bringing the Burger King character back from the dead. At a Gonzo Film Fest a few years ago, we showed an old Burger King commercial which had a less scary version of the King in it. Immediately thereafter, the scary psycho stalker serial killer kitten-eating version of the King arrived on the scene, making us certain we had invoked him and unleashed his evil upon the world.

We felt a little bad about that, but nothing could have prepared us for this. We are so very, very, very, very, very sorry. We never intended to destroy mankind. Honest.

More insanity after the break...

Contest: Win Aeon Flux (the original) on DVD!

That's right...Charlize, we love ya (and your exploding ball bearings were cool)...but we bet most people would opt for this instead. We yanked it out of the Needcoffee.com Swag Closet, and you might yank it out of your mailbox...if you win. So go do it.

Please note: "Exploding ball bearings" is not, in fact, a sexual innuendo.

Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere Going Unabridged


Excellent news. The Neil gave word that an unabridged reading of his novel, Neverwhere (read by himself this time), will be hitting the streets later this year. We checked--and sure enough, Amazon already has it available for pre-order for November 1st. Nice.

If you don't know the book, you really should fix that. We quite enjoyed the BBC miniseries (our review here) that spawned the novel, and the novel itself is good fun as well. I didn't much care for the comic book adaptation, because despite liking both Mike Carey's and Glenn Fabry's work normally, it just didn't gel for me.

Anyway, since we know you're going to buy it--because anytime The Neil reads his own stuff you should buy--do so here. Because we get kickbacks. And you can grab the book, the DVD, and the graphic novel as well if that cranks your tractor.

The Curmudgeon

Thanks to all of you for taking time away from the silly Anna Nicole Smith news and Arena Football League season to read my column. It is much appreciated.

Cee-Lo Green

The Grammys were mighty boring. I don't really care two cents about them. They are decided on by people whose musical tastes have no bearing on mine whatsoever. Plus any excuse to not see Don Henley is fine by me. I don't really care about The Dixie Chicks but I don't think they deserved to win every single award, especially when Gnarls Barkley clearly had the Single of the Year.

The Single of the Year should go to the song that crosses over and impacts the most people that year. "Crazy" clearly did this. It was on rock, urban and contemporary hit radio stations. It was played in The Gap, hotel lobbies, sports highlight clips, Starbucks and every car driving down the street. During the spring and summer months you could not escape it. Magically, despite the overkill, "Crazy" never wore out its welcome. It never made you throw your hands up in exasperation and scream "Enough already!" This is the trademark of a great pop single and Gnarls Barkley clearly deserved to win this.

Free Starbucks on March 15th

Starbucks Phase 2

Slashfood gave us the word that March 15th, Starbucks locations will be giving out free tall coffees to everybody who comes by between 10am and noon. And free happens to be my favorite kind of coffee.

Chris vs. Banzai Girl: Karaoke Master Aims to Please

Sometimes I miss doing full-on comic reviews. And then I read something like Chris, over at his Invincible Super-Blog, where he beats the comic Banzai Girl with a metal yardstick...and I know true peace:

Essentially, it's the late-night Cinemax version of Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld, but starring Space Cheerleader Jinky, who rolls around in a "liquid metal battlesuit" blowing things up with a space-bazooka, which inevitably causes her skirt to blow up and reveal her Liquid Metal Battlethongâ„¢. Amazingly, this is actually less fun to read than it sounds.

Awesome. Read the whole thing.
