i am dying to see wanted. i couldn't see it this weekend though. how was it? (In my usual fashion, I had written up a lengthy post regarding acting, editing, my personal biases and the comic that it's ostensibly based on... Sometimes I just need to shut the fuck up - I acknowledge that.) It was qui...

Do you know approx. when that's happening? I should hold off, huh? Leaked Radio Shack and K-Mart ads show July 13 - the E3 expo is July 14-17, so that makes sense. I should have said that your "not a gamer" philosophy does favor the Wii; it's more casual fun, and I think the Virtual Conso...

From a gamer's perspective, I say 360. The Wii is fun but the game selection is very anemic compared to the 360. Put another way: when my consoles were stolen a few weeks ago, I replaced the 360 as soon as I could. The Wii will wait until I can actually find one at retail, and then I'll be getting i...

That's crazy. Both the robot and seeing Byrne in a theatre. Some of you knew my dad and might get a kick out of picturing him, coked out of his mind, I'm sure, having dinner with David Byrne, who, based on my mom's description, was very calm and quiet the whole time (probably couldn't get a word in ...

Ha - indeed. Metaphorically speaking, of course... Exactly the kind of thing it would have irritated him to no end to hear.

There are a lot of tributes out there, but I think this is pretty good, so enjoy: George Carlin on Death.

Finally got around to watching these - holy cats, are some of them funny. I hadn't seen any of them, so apparently I'm not paying enough attention. While the Princess Bride one was very well done, I think Yojimbo takes the cake, even if not visually the most impressive - if anyone ever deserved to w...

Caetano Veloso 4. The Mountain Goats 5. The Smiths 6. The Brian Jonestown Massacre 7. The Dandy Warhols 8. Riviera ...
