The Gay Alphabet

If it's true (as many believe) that gays actively glamorise and recruit people into 'the gay lifestyle'; what would this pro-gay marketing campaign look like?

For starters you'd have to learn the gay alphabet. Which is just what some funny people decided to bring to life...

Christian Bale Mashup Collection
christian-bale.jpgChristian Bale's rant hit the intertubes early this week, and it took netizens about 3 seconds to recognize how musical his cadence was even in the throes of extreme anger. Now there are a brazilian mashups and remixes of varying musical quality, the biggest being the remix from revolucion posted earlier at this fine site. Several were sent to me. I hate to post the same type of thing over and over again, so continue reading if you are interested in a half-dozen more of the best. All but one are extremely NSFW. As if I had to tell you.

Mating Falls

"He's Just Not That Into You" **1/2 (out of four): Fine for a night out with the gals, but fails to revamp the running-on-empty romantic comedy genre.

just.jpg

The no-nonsense line "He's Just Not That Into You" first appeared in an episode of "Sex and the City," then became a best-selling book by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo, and is now a star power-fueled romantic comedy. Have you ever had an amazing time with someone and then wondered why you never heard from him again? Wasted countless hours dissecting why a relationship hit a wall? Made a laundry list of excuses for a date's clear lack of interest? Then in February, when there's pretty much nothing else to see anyway, this is the movie for you.

The Fans Hit the Sith

"Fanboys" *** (out of four): This low-brow, cameo-filled celebration of all things "Star Wars" arrives ten years past its prime. But it's still the best thing to be associated with the franchise in years.

fanboys.jpg

What film geek hasn't thought about it? "What if I don't live long enough to see insert long-awaited movie here?!" And then, when you're seated in the theater on opening day, before the opening credits even roll, you see a preview for the next big movie (wait, they're making "Watchmen"?!), and the cycle repeats. Such is the problem for Linus, one of the four man-boys who fit the titular description in "Fanboys", a low-brow celebration of all things geek-tastically "Star Wars". But Linus has it really bad. Not only does he have cancer, but it's 1998 and Linus may not make it until opening day of "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace". Has there ever been a film more long-awaited than that one?

Mystery of the Second Floor Revealed
Attic.pngFor those of you who follow my personal adventures with my new house (both of you), I have an update about the mysterious second floor. To catch up, here's part one and part two of the story. Yes, I went up there. No, I'm not doing it again any time soon. Yes, I'm going to build rooms up there. No, not until the stairs are in place. Yes, it will cause me to go into debt until the housing market recovers and I can unload the old house. Continue reading for the rest of the story.

Tropicana gets "enhancements"
tropnip.jpg

First we had the new phallic-inspired Pepsi bottles. Not to be outdone, Tropicana Orange Juice has revised their logo. They've given the 1/2 gallon tops some augmentations too.

Obviously they're looking to tie into oranges (or basketballs) - so they get points for cleverness. It's just what they meant to portray is not the first thing that came to my mind when I grabbed my morning OJ.

A side view....(is it cold in here?)

Trillion Is the New Billion
trillion.jpg (I couldn't find any visual representations of the number "trillion" that weren't totally nerdy, so I used this kickass album cover from a 1970s Canadian band of the same name. Economics rawks!)

It was officially announced yesterday that,

In that strange intersection of economics and politics, there is a new fashion: Trillion is the new billion.

You see, our current economic shitstorm has spiraled so rapidly that the lexicon for describing it has moved beyond our comprehension, to the point that we have become desensitized to these grim numbers -- except economists, who apparently are so nerved out about those three extra zeros that they need to do a monster bong hit before they can talk to CNN:

'Number' itself can be parsed 'number' or 'numb-er.' And maybe in this case, the latter is a better pronunciation.

To which CNN replied, "Shhh! I think I can hear my own ears! Duuuude, we should totally listen to Comfortably NUMB right fucking now, hahaha! Hey, you got any Fritos?"

But seriously, though, it's true -- ordinary words DO sound totally weird when you're baked, and a trillion IS a big number. To give you some perspective on just HOW big a trillion really is, here are some facts.

Fax.

Faccccctsss.

404 Error

Whoops! We're not sure if it was your fault or ours (probably yours, we're good that way) but you've encountered a FATAL ERROR!!! Or at least, a pretty grumpy one.

Specifically the Latvians who run our server are telling us in a weird accent "Smarty error: [in evaluated template line 6]: syntax error: unrecognized tag 'mtfeed' (Smarty_Compiler.class.php, line 580), Comrade!". Ain't life a bitch.

If you want to vent, email our slacker of a webmaster. Otherwise, we'd suggest going back, using search, or clicking around aimlessly on this page like a moron.

Have fun.
