Deck The Halls With Bots

I only discovered the surreal comedy-genius of Botnik Studios a couple days ago, via an article in The Guardian, but the site’s already given my belly-muscles a serious work-out (which I’m very grateful for, considering all the cheese and cakes I’ll be scoffing this month), so I thought I’d share their festive… 153 more words

Not Dead Yet: The Release!

The L7 documentary Pretend We’re Dead has finally been unleashed on “home video” in the States (and on Amazon video, here in the UK)… though, as a backer of the initial Kickstarter campaign, I actually received my (signed) copy a couple weeks ago, and watched an exclusive online stream of an earlier edit several months back. 247 more words

Get'cha Ass On The Road

Working my way through the third season of Glee got me in a musical sorta mood… so when I saw multiple DVD copies of High School Musical: The Concert… 421 more words

“Does Your Rear-End Make Noise?”

The first/last time I watched Moving Violations (1985) was back in the video-rental days, and while I’d forgotten pretty much everything else about the movie (which involves a group of suspended drivers having to attend a series of road-safety night-classes to earn back their impounded vehicles), one “joke” has stuck with me through the intervening decades: Two men are discussing a ditsy driving school classmate, and one comments that “she’s no rocket scientist”, just before the lady herself reveals that she works for NASA as a literal “rocket scientist”! 439 more words
