Friday Night ONT [Ben]

What are the best movie opening sequences or scenes? No link for this one. I want your input. Here are three of my favorites.

(NSFW Language)

Interesting fact, most of this speech is made up of real Patton quotes.


(NSFW: 1 second Christian Bale butt shot)


Interesting fact: This film wasn't about an American, but rather a Russian arms dealer named Victor Bout


Dinosaur tree spotted in England. Obviously itís a tree and not an actual dinosaur, but there is a 50/50 chance that a dinosaur is hiding behind that tree. Thereís only way to find out. You go first.


Bill Maher Interview

Jake Tapper recently interviewed Bill Maher about the current Fluke/Limbaugh kerfuffle.

TAPPER: And that's not comparable to what Limbaugh said about Sandra Fluke?
MAHER: To compare that to Rush is ridiculous - he went after a civilian about very specific behavior, that was a lie, speaking for a party that has systematically gone after women's rights all year, on the public airwaves. I used a rude word about a public figure who gives as good as she gets, who's called people "terrorist" and "unAmerican." Sarah Barracuda. The First Amendment was specifically designed for citizens to insult politicians. Libel laws were written to protect law students speaking out on political issues from getting called whores by Oxycontin addicts.

So Sarah Palin said mean things about people and is a public citizen, therefore it's okay to make fun of her underaged children? On the other hand Sandra "Diamond Nuva Ring" Fluke is just an ordinary private citizen who testifies in a publicity stunt put on by the Democratic party? I find this argument unconvincing.

Regardless, the best part of the interview comes when Bill Maher drops this gem.

MAHER: I'm a comedian - not just a guy who says he is, like Rush, but someone who - well, you saw me do stand-up last year in D.C. There's a big difference between just saying you're a comedian and going out and getting thousands of people to laugh hard for 90 minutes. And the one I'm compared to most is Carlin, who also had these kind of problems.
Wait, what? Bill Maher sees himself as a modern George Carlin? Really? I will let you be the judge.

Warning NSFW Language


Also NSFW Language

To be fair, Carlin did become an old left wing crank in his later years, but he was at least funny for part of his career.


Another Creepy Epsiode of My Strange Addiction

We've been acquainted with the bow f*cker, dolphin f*cker, and the car f*cker.

[Update] Sorry, couldn't get the video to embed. Here is a linkto it.


John Carter From Mars Might End Up Being the Biggest Movie Flop Ever.

I didn't see it. This type of science fiction doesn't appeal to me. I prefer futuristic science fiction, not fantasy science fiction.

So, in its opening weekend John Carter raked in approximately 30-million in North America and 70-million overseas. 100-million bucks in a single weekend! Not bad huh? Well, actually it is pretty bad if youíve spent over 350-million on the production and marketing of a movie thatís not getting great word-of-mouth.

Taking into account the fact studios have to split ticket sales with theatres, John Carter will need to take in 600 to 700-million to turn a profit, and it looks like itís not going to get anywhere close. Financial analysts are saying the movie could lose up to 165-million bucks. That would make John Carter the biggest money-flush in movie history ó by kind of a wide margin.

Did any of you see it? What did you think?


Barack Obama Picks Missouri to Be In The Final Four

You can probably guess what happened.

I will never forgive Obama for picking my Steelers in the Super Bowl and all the reckless spending, but mainly the reckless spending.


Jason Russell, the director of the Kony 2012 Viral Video, Has Been Arrested for Masturbating Naked In Public.

There is video at the link. It doesn't show him in the act, but he's clearly naked and crazy.

His website put out this statement.

Jason Russell was unfortunately hospitalized yesterday suffering from exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition. He is now receiving medical care and is focused on getting better. The past two weeks have taken a severe emotional toll on all of us, Jason especially, and that toll manifested itself in an unfortunate incident yesterday. Jasonís passion and his work have done so much to help so many, and we are devastated to see him dealing with this personal health issue. We will always love and support Jason, and we ask that you give his entire family privacy during this difficult time.

I don't know about you, but I am more inclined to donate to his charity now.


Special Note: Our own TMI3RD is singing the national anthem at tomorrow's MLS game between Sporting KC and NE Revolution. If you're in the Boston or Kansas City area, be sure to tune in.
