The Kite Runner
The Kite Runner is a nearly perfect example of why great books don’t make great movies, even if it isn’t that great of a book. Books can be both messier and neater; a novel can tie its story up in a nice little bow because after 300 or 400 pages, it’s essentially earned your trust, but it can also leave pointless but enjoyable loose ends dangling like jewelry off of the main...
Um, like, ice was falling from the sky today and crap. I mean, really. C’mon.
Fridays Are Forgetting (A New Mux) →
It’s been a long week, reaching a high point with catastrophic laptop failure on Wednesday night. I spent trying 24 hours trying to revive the bastard, but it appears that Windows ate itself. The likely culprit: Windows Update. So for a little Friday morning diversion, I pieced together this little job to keep me sane. Maybe later, rather than finding someone to stab in the neck, I will...
Invasion of the Penis Snatchers
Reuters: Purported victims, 14 of whom were also detained by police, claimed that sorcerers simply touched them to make their genitals shrink or disappear, in what some residents said was an attempt to extort cash with the promise of a cure.
The Windows That Ate Itself
That’s what I get for not buying that MacBook Pro when I had the chance. Blue screen of death followed by an inability to start XP. Awesome. I can’t even get the Windows Recovery Console to boot from CD because of some unknown Administrator password that was never set. Double Awesome.

Dan Savage, At A Loss, April 3, 2008: “Perhaps a sex-advice column isn’t an appropriate place to eulogize an articulate, elegant woman, a practicing Catholic named for the patron saint of hopeless causes and, perhaps consequently, a Cubs fan. I mean, really. Eulogizing my mother back here with the escort ads?”
By so badly botching arguably the most critical debate of such an important...– Will Bunch, An open letter to Charlie Gibson and George Stephanapoulos

Is this a comedy? A drama? A dramedy? A coma? Is it satire or not? The slick name droppin’ trailer screams Thank You For Smoking, but I’m just not feeling it. Movies like this need to dance fleet of foot across the thin ice that separates political satire from the cold death below, where sludgy lecturing and pompous preaching await. Something tells me this thing is going to skate like...
videogum: It’s fun to watch brains work. Like, one minute you’re delivering a news piece featuring the sad and unfortunate realties of domestic abuse, and the next minute you’re doing embarrassing karaoke with back up dancers for no apparent reason.
Its 77 and sunny in 32610. In a few hours, I’m heading back to 61201, where it is 47 and rainy. Yet I’m happy for home.

I’m a trivia loser. Wouldn’t have lost if could play quarters better or knew John Doe once f’ed 55 ladies in one day.
