Charlie Sheen to Help Arabs Take Freedom to ‘Next Level”:

From the always delightful SatireWire." Which is about satire. And possibly wires. But mostly satire.

“CAIRO (SatireWire.com) – Pledging to help the Arab world take freedom “to the next level,” actor Charlie Sheen flew to the Middle East today with 650 tons of cocaine and 4,000 hookers”

Chuckles isn’t quite finished just yet. In fact, his Middle East mission is just getting started:

After making an impromptu speech in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, where he encouraged Egyptians to “lift the crack pipe of freedom and inhale the dragon of liberty,” Sheen boarded a private plane for Libya, where many protesters have been beaten and imprisoned.

“I can relate to those people ‘cause that’s happened to me too,” he said, taking a martini from a flight attendant dressed as Lady Gaga. “I was imprisoned for my beliefs. I think. Or hospitalized. Maybe I was hospitalized. I’m not in the hospital now am I? I haven’t slept since January.”

Peace and Hookers Be Upon You as Well Mr. Sheen.

A “Prometheus” Update:

From Screenrant

"Director Ridley Scott’s new sci-fi film, ‘Prometheus’ will reportedly include the Space Jockey from the original ‘Alien’ – along with another bizarre creature."

No, it's not LoafDog I'm saddened to report.

"Ridley Scott’s return to sci-fi lore gradually morphed over time from a two-movie prequel to Alien, into a spin-off titled Prometheus that contains “strands of Alien’s DNA,” according to the filmmaker himself."

"Michael Fassbender recently lent further credence to that claim, indicating that Scott’s upcoming venture takes place within the Alien universe and will retain stylistic hallmarks of the original 1979 release."

But wait! There's more!

"It’s also long been rumored that the Space Jockey glimpsed briefly in Alien would play a pivotal role in Scott’s new film, and now it seems that the creature will indeed be appearing in Prometheus after all. An insider for Sky Movies says that the Jockey will be brought to life as an eight foot tall animatronic, with sculptor/set designer H.R. Giger overseeing its structure."

I'll need a moment here (*fanning self while looking for box of tissues*)

Practically everything that Giger touches turns into awesomeness, including his work on the original "Alien." Does he have a website showcasing said awesomeness? I'm glad you asked.

"Some people call me The Space Jockey..."

Happy Caturday!

Tonight's Musical Selection From Vic:

I used to have a tapeworm I called "Slim." (And an ingrown toenail I called Andy Kaufmann but that's not really important at the moment)

Flame On!:

From CDR M: "Video of the monster solar prominence that occurred yesterday on the Sun." Or so he'd have us believe...
