Hoag's Object

Wow, this is beautiful. It's a picture of a ring galaxy called Hoag's Object, taken by the Hubble telescope. Breathtaking.

Cunts Corner

Oooh, look at this. Makes my efforts look positively amateurish.

Ill-conceived movie pitches

  1. Look Who's Talking, For Fuck's Sake
    Continuing the popular talking baby/pet movie series, Look Whos' Talking, For Fuck's Sake is a romantic comedy featuring two people who dislike each other at first but who are brought together in love by their wisecracking intestinal parasites (voiced by Adam Sandler and Demi Moore).
  2. Reservoir Cats
    Reservoir Dogs, done as a musical on rollerskates. Starring Christopher Biggins as Mr. White, Gary Wilmot as Mr. Blonde and a CGI George Formby as Mr. Pink (signature ukelele song: "When I'm Stealing Diamonds").
  3. School of Glam Rock
    An out-of-favour rock'n'roll star takes a job as a school music teacher to make ends meet. He starts a band with members of his class and his unconventional maverick teaching methods soon have a startling effect on his pupils. Starring Gary Glitter.
  4. Usability Jox
    In the future, usability testing has been banned and all interface design disputes are solved by battles between giant armed robots. World Champion Jakob and his massive grey steel Cube-Bot remain undefeated after nearly twenty years - it's up to maverick newcomer Steve and Flashdroid to free the usability world from their iron grip. Starring David Crobsy as Jakob Neilsen.
  5. Police Academy 8: Operation Dead Horse
    Oh, for the love of sweet baby jesus ...

Robot Kumite

Oh my fucking gawd. There's a robot kumite held in Japan where little humanoid remote controlled 'bots kick seven shades of shite out of each other! Stitch that Craig Charles and Auntie Bee - this pisses on Robot Wars. Check the videos:

Now all they need is to scale the robots up a bit, stick cockpits in them and we can have real life Robot Jox!

I love bees

Hot-dang I'm so slow that it's taken Penny Arcade to bring my attention to i love bees dot com. How interesting, how fun, what an enormous fucking timesink it is for a sad Marathon fanboy like me.

A-Team Innocent!

After what seems like several months of sub-par work, the Onion has come through once more: U.S. Military Clears A-Team of Charges.

Baracus said that he has big plans for his settlement.
"For the last 30 years I've been a soldier of fortune," Baracus said. "Now, I'm going to take the money and do something for the kids. I'm gonna start a gym. A gym for the kids. For a long time, that's been my dream. But I couldn't open one with [Gen. Hunt] Stockwell on our tail. He'd use a tank to send shells through the side of it."
Added Baracus: "I pity the fool that tries to blow up my gymnasium now!"

intergalactic disco wars

Finally pulled my finger out and edited that Beastie Boys / Meco Monardo mash out of the space mix so that it halfway stands on its own, sorta. Get it here (u:juarez p:d00d).
