Your Weekend Justice #113: But What Color is the Bus?

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that wants to make sure the bus in question is moving above 50 miles an hour. Or else. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart. Or Sandra Bullock. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

Stuff: Aronofsky Sucks Adamantium From New Wolverine Movie

Hugh Jackman

Wolverine 2 to have Ikea as corporate sponsor.

Sometimes you just need somebody to read all the pop culture news for you and just tell you the important bits, leaving out all the fluff. Well, here you go. Subscribe to the Stuff feed or get this as a free email newsletter. However you want to hit it, just smack it. It’s yours to smack. Enjoy.

  • Suck factor is high! Darren Aronofsky has left The Wolverine. Which is a damn shame, too, because I would have loved to have seen his take on the character and I think he could have finally given a Wolverine-infused movie that is worthy of Hugh Jackman‘s badass portrayal. What’s odd is that his reasoning is incomplete in my opinion: he reportedly left because he didn’t want to be away from his family–shooting in Japan–for a year. But…surely that wasn’t a new bit of news that was happening. Something changed: either the tsunami changed his mind (although Fox could shoot the film elsewhere for Japan–secondarily although, they could, I’m sure, use the infusion of dollars) or something changed on the family side of things. Either way…damn. Source.

    Black Phoenix Spellbinds You With Halloween Fragrances

    black phoenix alchemy lab sleepy hollow graphic

    I’ve had several people comment to me recently that ‘it smells like autumn’. Personally, I think it’s wishful thinking on their parts. I’m in Florida and I can still smell the sweat and cooking asphalt. Anything close to what most people would recognize as ‘autumn’ isn’t gonna happen until November. Maybe. Having the smells of the season in the forefront of my brain, I decided to see what our favorite perfumery, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, have available for this harvest season.

    Black Phoenix celebrates all aspects of this special time of year with their Halloweenie 2008 line of perfume oils. The coming of fall is well represented from the nostalgic scent of freshly piled leaves with A Blade Of Grass to the sinister smells of charred wood and blood musk from Chant D’Automne. Halloween is shown in all its different guises like the fresh flowers and leaves of the cocoa and tobacco plants from the Bolivian festival of Day of the Skulls, the heady spices and the dangerous nectar of the agave of the ancient Aztec death goddess Mictecacihuatl and the spiced pumpkin and apple of the pagan Samhain 2008. Even Trick or Treat gets a nod with the sweet Sticky Pillowcase whose ingredients are

    Smushed candy corn, rock candy dust, marshmallow gunk, strawberry goo, spun blue sugar, globs of salt water taffy, and lint.

    Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Wants You To Smell Like The Inside of Neil Gaiman’s Mind

    'The' Neil Gaiman

    Chazzie-award winner Neil Gaiman, known around here simply as “The Neil,” has a movie based on his stuff coming out this weekend. Yes, Stardust opens with a big name cast, big special effects, and the hopes and dreams of millions riding on the notion that Hollywood might manage not to fuck up a Gaiman adaptation. Ahem. No pressure*.

    Anyway, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab (who we’ve talked about before) is not only an incredible name for a band but also makes “Stardust” and “Good Omens” fragrances.

    (Good Omens? By Jove, that sounds familiar…!)

    So anyway, they’ve got five Stardust fragrances, with names like “Fairy Market” and “Yvaine,” and the proceeds go to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. If you buy the Good Omens fragrances, you not only help the CBLDF but also orangutans. And for the record, these orangutans have nothing to do with comic books to our knowledge and to imply that they wrote Identity Crisis would be an insult to orangutans everywhere. So.

    For the full press release, click after the break. For their website, click here.

    *–I mean seriously, have you read any of the Sandman movie scripts? You haven’t? Good. Don’t. One took five months off my life. And not the end of my life, either. I’m talking five months from the middle of 1982. Flat gone.

    Of Lisa Snellings and Blue Poppets

    Blue Poppets by Lisa Snellings

    I love the work of Lisa Snellings. Always have. However, being a webmaster, I can’t afford the work of Lisa Snellings. Although The Neil informs us that there are options.

    She’s made some new blue poppets that are for sale for prices even I can afford, and according to The Neil she’s donating a dollar to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund for each one sold. Nice.

    Find them and some of her other stuff here. Tell her we said hi.

    P.S. The Neil also points out in the same posting that there are Good Omens scents now. I guess our timing was good, yes?
