Grindhouse Universe DVD

The fine folks at Ban1 Productions have recently released another volume of fantastic grindhouse trailers on DVD. I just got mine today and it's a great collection of horror, sexploitation, mondo, and biker trailers.

Check out the definitely NSFW trailer and act fast if you want the DVD, as it's a limited edition release.

Happy 50th Smurfday
smurfs.jpg

I watched these little blue suckers faithfully when I was a wee-one. Started by Peyo in 1958, The Smurf's celebrated their 50th birthday today. In case you forgot or don't know The Smurfs are tiny blue things that live in little white-capped mushroom in a secret forest. It doesn't weird you out when your 7. And like McDonald's, they have their own language, adding "Smurf" to everything and interchaning nouns and verbs.

To celebrate the birthday here's my favorite Smurf story, Smuckfest. It explains why Smurf's are blue.

It’s important to be able to communicate with the help. Particularly if you didn’t feel the need to pay attention in high school Spanish class.

(Thanks, Jan!)

- Andrew Lloyd Webber
- Rita Moreno
- Al Pacino
- Audrey hepburn
- Woody Allen
- Julie Andrews

Ok, now you can look.

Congratulations to Mad Men

They got it wrong on the comedy side, though. 30 Rock should've taken it.

Home Sweet Home
ThreeHomes.jpg

I've had these three stories saved for a while, so I'm posting them together because they all have something to do with unique living conditions.

- A family in South Carolina buys a new house and finds a secret room with a secret problem.

- Mark Malkoff has been living at the Jersey Ikea for the past week, and the security guys are starting to get annoyed.

- And Ari Delfer, a Berkeley native, is saving a year's worth of garbage to see how much trash that actually is.

I'm no NY Post fan, but this is kinda funny.
JessJinx.jpg

The Post sent a Jessica Simpson lookalike to yesterday's game. Eight incompletions in the fourth quarter...something must've been on his mind.

And, I read some sites have started referring to the real Jessica as Yoko Romo. That's good, too.
