Why So Funny?

I don’t know why this made my laugh so hard when I saw it. But it sure did. It kinda peters out at the end. I honestly think it would have been stronger if it had continued on longer.

Tim Minear’s “The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress” Script

Apparently back in 2004 Tim Minear, an important writer on a bunch of television shows including (I don’t know if you’ve heard of any of these) The X-Files, Angel, Firefly, and Wonderfalls, was hired to write a screenplay based on Robert A. Heinlein’s book The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress. This is probably one of my top-five favorite books. And how is Minear’s take on it?


It’s surprisingly faithful to the source material, and the places where it does differ are at once shocking and highly (in one instance devastatingly) effective. But don’t take my word for it! A copy of the script has found its way online as a .pdf! So instead of reading this post, you should go read Tim Minear’s “The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress” Script

Arrr in the Stars

Schill time: So I’ve started playing this cute little free online game called Star Pirates. It has a very old-school, text-adventure feel to it. And, seriously, you can log on and play for just a couple of minutes at a time. It’s the kind of game where you can spend real-world money to get advantages, but I know first-hand that it’s a very enjoyable game even if you don’t shell out anything. Go on… give it a try. My character’s name is AngryBeef and my ship’s name is Lil’ Angro. I’ll see you… amongst the stars! Arrrr!

Iron Man (2008)

(The Man and the Iron Mask)

This probably isn’t going to be a long review because there isn’t much to say about Iron Man other than that it’s very, very good. It’s also a whole heck of a lot of fun. It also has spectacular performances. Also the chemistry between the actors is something to behold. And the special effects are top-notch… [Read my full review here]

A Rainbow in Marrero by Ballzack

Ballzack is one of my favorite all-time hip-hop artists. Here is his latest video!

He comes from the same neighborhood in New Orleans where my pal Jeff the Fish comes from, but he didn’t hear about Ballzack until he relocated up here to Seattle! Gasp!
