Alive One Minute, Saint The Next

Posted by The Gimcracker in News, Sports on 29. Nov, 2007 | 10 Comments

I grow weary of people speaking of the recently departed as flawless, sinless individuals despite the life the person actually lived. There’s this fear of speaking ill of the dead that stays around for months and even years after the burial. Why is this? By “ill”, I’m not talking about slander and falsity. Usually, an [...]

Indiana Jones 4

Posted by The Gimcracker in Movies, News on 10. Sep, 2007 | 3 Comments

So I was watching the MTV Video Music Awards last night… wait, let me stop myself right there. Why was I watching this train wreck of TV programming? Simple, because it’s just that: a train wreck. It’s so terrible you can’t look away. That, and I had been watching football since 1:00 pm and after [...]

You can’t say “I don’t know” in Megion, a town in Russia that produces more oil than the rest of Russia combined. I’m serious, you can’t say it. Even if you really don’t know. You also can’t say any of the following phrases: “What can we do?” “It’s not my job” “It’s impossible” “I’m having [...]

A man and woman were just stoned to death in Iran, according to this article, and it wasn’t carried out by a few outraged villagers wielding pitchforks as I had previously envisioned it. Iran’s government confirmed that they were responsible for stoning the man as punishment for adultery. I’m dumbfounded that something like this [...]

Her name is Mika Brzezinski and I am now a tremendous fan of hers. She even got her own hour-long news show because of her outburst. This is almost enough to make me start watching MSNBC… almost.

Tom Cruise is making a new movie, and as much as I hate to admit, it sounds awesome. It’s about Col. Claus von Stauffenberg who was involved with a World War II era plot to kill Adolf Hitler and overthrow the Nazi regime. It’s called Valkyrie, it’s directed by Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects and [...]

Finally, Bruce Willis Says It

Posted by The Gimcracker in Movies, News on 16. May, 2007 | 2 Comments

Bruce Willis Tells Hollywood to Shut Up. That’s right, you heard me correctly. I’m so tired of Hollywood telling people how they should live their lives, what’s right and wrong, and how much better they are than us. I mean, just read my brother’s post about Sheryl Crow’s stupidity. Bruce, keep rocking my socks off. [...]

Blizzard Pays You to Smoke Play Their Crack Game

Yes, those are World of Warcraft credit cards. Yes, puppies will start dying soon. There was a time when I thought the maker of World of Warcraft had a soul. But I recently found out yet again that a corporation cannot have a soul any more than a Mac user can have respect for a [...]
