Another Japanese thing that American's aren't suppose to understand.
Pretty spectacular footage of a failed unmanned Russian rocket launch from 2002.
And by failed I mean the sucker does a 180 and heads right back where it came from.
As one of the commenters points out, “Snakes man, ON A MOTHERF'N PLANE!!!!!!” How can this one miss?
In the Streaking game, you're a professional streaker at a few different events like a football game, the dog show and golf. You get points by waving your sponsors logo after getting the crowd to take notice. The cool thing is that the sponsors are real. Maybe YBNBY should sponsor a level...
- Start with Howard Stern and his love letter to Les Moonves on Letterman.
- But apparently, not everyone is a Stern fan. Via GorillaMask.
- Bill O'Reilly took a beating on Colbert this week. Here's Al Franken taking his swings.
- Hi QVC...my name's Randy, and I use my Dell computer to watch loads of porn.
- And I lost count at four necks snapping in this clip from the upcoming Godfather game.
(I may need to watch that autistic kid sinking three pointers to cleanse the palate.)
A follow-up to Aqua's post on the sad passing of Peter Tomarken, who died in a plane crash recently...video of Michael Larson, the ice cream man who took Press Your Luck for over a hundred grand, and nearly gave Peter a coronary in the process. (probably because he was kissing his Christmas bonus goodbye)
"V for Vendetta" *** (out of four): Refreshingly faithfully but maddeningly uneven adaptation of the classic Alan Moore graphic novel about a masked man reigning terror on a totalitarian London.
The writer Alan Moore was apparently so disillusioned with Hollywood that the film adaptation of his groundbreaking, joyfully bleak graphic novel “V for Vendetta” is credited only as being “based on the graphic novel illustrated by David Lloyd” (Mr. Moore’s longtime partner). After watching his equally brilliant “The League of Extraordinary Gentleman” butchered to within an inch of its life in an anemic 2003 film, it’s no wonder Mr. Moore would be a bit wary. But he needn’t have removed his name from director James McTeigue’s refreshingly faithful but maddeningly uneven adaptation. While it contains none of the brilliance or immediacy of the source material, for any fan of Mr. Moore’s original, there are moments of pure bliss.
