300 (2007) - Movie Review

It's supposed to be a sort of hyper-fantastical sword and sandals piece, so you can believe in giant ogres with axes and crazed war rhinos and shit.

When I Say Pluto, New Mexico Says Planet

Normally when we're using the space here to tell you about what some government is doing, it's usually to ridicule them for some silly shit that they're wasting their time on when they could be, oh, you know, protecting us instead of trying to screw us out of more money and time. However, there's an exception to every rule. And with 2 Skinnee still disbanded, somebody has to applaud New Mexico:

State lawmakers will vote Tuesday on a bill that proposes "as Pluto passes overhead through New Mexico's excellent night skies, it be declared a planet."

Nice. The article's here. Found via Slashdot.

Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human (1999) - DVD Review

Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human DVD cover art


Written & Directed by Jeff Abugov
Starring Mackenzie Astin, Carmen Electra, David Hyde Pierce, Lucy Liu, Markus Redmond


  • Running audio commentary by writer/director Abugov

Released by: Columbia Tristar.
Region: 1
Rating: R
Anamorphic: Yes.

My Advice: Rent it to see it at least once.

Have you ever wondered about how there got to be so many human beings on such a tiny little planet? Well, wonder no more! This documentary by an alien anthropologist (Pierce), takes a look at just what makes these simple creatures tick, and more importantly, what makes them tick so often. He follows one human female, known among other of her species as Jenny (Electra), and one human male, also known as Billy (Astin) and follows their relationship from courting to sexual intercourse to marriage to the birth of their resulting offspring. As you will see, there is much more to a human relationship than meets the ocular nerve endings.

Your Weekend Justice

Sloshing through the swamp of pop culture so you don't have to. We bring you ideas for how to waste your weekend.

Of course, special thanks go out to Clutch for letting me use their absolutely badass song, "Promoter (of earthbound causes)" as my theme music for this.

Buy Blast Tyrant, which is where you can find "Promoter". Buy their latest album, Pitchforks and Lost Needles. Send them love and coin.

BTW, you iTunes subscriber types can nab this feed here.

Or if you want to do something else with it, the feed feed is here.

And P.S., I know it sounds like I'm pronouncing Charlotte Gainsbourg's name as Gainsbourne, but I swear to God I said Gainsbourg. Speech problems due to lack of caffeine, that's all I can figure.

Neuromancer the Comic: The Slightly Funny Deal

Boing Boing points out a really cheeseball comic adaptation of William Gibson's Neuromancer, the grandfather tome of cyberpunk. This is impressive: I had never heard of this, and the 80s is when I was scary into comics. Gibson responded to Boing Boing about this, and yeah: the art is kinda sad.

Spinal Tap Green Skeleton T-Shirt: Exactly Medically Accurate

Nigel Tufnel from Spinal Tap: Green Skeleton T-Shirt

Awesome. Found Item Clothing has created the green skeleton t-shirt worn by Nigel Tufnel in This is Spinal Tap, front and back. The site states:

Normally, we try to match the shirt type exactly, but we thought we'd rather sell the shirt with the option of sleeves. That way you can adjust the level of sleevelessness to your own personal specifications.

Well done. The rest of their shirts, taken from television shows and film, are pretty badass as well.

First Life: Why Can't I Build a Dirigible With My Mind?

I think that Second Life is pretty cool, honestly. But that doesn't keep me from laughing my ass off at folks trying to take the piss out of them. Like the lovely one-page parody, Get a First Life, where they urge you to "Fornicate Using Your Actual Genitals." Awesome.

White-Out: The Ultimate Cold War Weapon

Apparently the Russians were working on a device that would "correct the gravity field" and simply remove North America from the planet. The device was called the A-241/BIS, but further study shows that it's simply a modified Uranium PU-36 Explosive Space Modulator.
