Your Weekend Justice #230: Following John Cleese to the End of the World

ham

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck…the podcast that didn’t mean to make some sort of weird John Cleese callback to the Outtakes episode, but did so anyway.

(Note: I apologize that I’m a bit robo at the beginning but it somehow inexplicably improves shortly thereafter. My actual voice, though, remains as grating as always.)

So Sin City is hitting Blu-Ray on April 21st from Miramax. And you know how we feel about the film. But now you’ve got both cuts of the film, eight hours of bonus material, plus an interactive game and you’re able to watch the original green screen stages of the movie as a picture-in-picture with the real movie. Nice.

We’ve got two copies of it here and you can win one. How? You enter using the form below. You enter once a day–we let you–and when the contest closes (which is street date this time: April 21st, not a month, so maximize your chances, friends) if we draw your name then you walk away with one of them. Good luck.

Neko City: Hell of a Way to Create a Handbag

Neko City mashup handbag

So originally I scoffed at the idea that Sanrio is targeting their Hello Kitty products to young men now. And not to sound like a sexist bastard, but come on, Hello Kitty is quite possibly the most girly-girl thing in the world. Even young boys who make no differentiation between Barbies and G.I. Joes (not dolls, but action figures…right) would fork the sign of the evil eye if you placed a Hello Kitty doll in front of them. Hello Kitty is so freaking pink that even Mary Kay herself would rise from the grave to say, “You really need to tone that down a bit.”

Our own Rox of Spazhouse polled her young male relatives about Hello Kitty for boys and found the answer to be not just no, but “Hell no and BTW what were you thinking?”

That being said, although I would never walk around with this as either a handbag or a manbag (or whatever you want to call it–although the “manbag” has always sounded too much like a piece of the male anatomy for me to take it seriously as a term), the creators of this bootleg gear get points for mashing up Hello Kitty with Sin City. They came damn close to getting my interest, but sorry, still no cigar.

Guys, help me out here: have you been dying for official Hello Kitty gear that’s designed with you in mind?

Sin City (2005) – Movie Review

Written by Robert Rodriguez, based on the series of graphics novels by Frank Miller
Directed by Frank Miller, Robert Rodriguez & Quentin Tarantino
Starring Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Clive Owen, Rosario Dawson

My Advice: Don’t miss it.

Welcome to Basin City. It’s a freaking cesspool of sex, violence and depravity. A series of stories from the town come to light. First, an about-to-retire cop (Willis) gets involved with his last case and finds himself in some serious shit. Next, a dangerous nutjob (Rourke) has a night he’ll never forget with a young lady, only to wake up with her dead in bed next to him. And a guy named Dwight (Owen) finds himself in the middle of a war between the ladies of the evening who control Old Town, the mob that wants in, and the cops. Before everything’s said and done there will be carnage, blood, gore, and rampant disregard for most anything civilized. Sweet.
