OMG It’s Doubt!

| December 28, 2008

I just saw Doubt, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep. And I am really annoyed. The whole basis of the film rests upon the whimsical ideas of a couple of dumb wenches (and I mean that in the specific case, not as slander against the sex), one a cold-hearted, zealous conservative, and the other [...]

Kwak Jae-Young’s Cyborg She Review, Many Moons Short Film

| December 26, 2008

Cute cover, no? I get cravings for Asian cinema/television once in awhile. While there’s a lot of variety in American films, they’re also inherently bound to American culture and values, which can get tiresome after awhile. I mean, I live it, everyday. There’s just something about Asian culture that I love, particularly Korean and Japanese. [...]

Manly Dogs

| December 24, 2008

This is why dogs have more utility than cats (though I’ve grown fond of them), and why manly dogs own girlie dogs. He kept thinking: Negative-20 winds? This is a search for a body. “Then, oh, all of a sudden, Ace bolted off,” said Lau. “He stooped and looked down at the snow and just [...]

Go science! Omni-mirror allows creation of laser scalpel. Surgeons rejoice. Then, on the other end of the spectrum, some things never change. Dumbasses. “But the man told me to!”

Student Calls 911, Police Arrive 48 Minutes Later, Too Late

| December 16, 2008

So yeah. She was killed. I’m going to segue from here into public arms control, so let the clusterf*&@ of competing reason begin. This tragedy would be exactly what anti-gun-control supporters would cite as a good reason for having arms at home. So, I’m curious, what is the left wing response to that? I’ve heard [...]

Unchecked Police Powers – What’s the Counter?

| December 3, 2008

I’m not particularly in the mood to write, but I’ve been sitting on this one for awhile, and it’s bugging me, so pardon me if I ramble. Anyway, I’ll first mention three noteworthy videos. I came across this vid on YouTube of a woman in handcuffs demanding a lawyer and a phone call. The officer [...]
