I'm coming for you.

You can't run:

"He turned to the judge and said, 'I'm going to kill you,' he turned to the jury and said 'I am going to kill you' and he turned to the crowd and said some stuff like that," said Clem Pellett. "He was an angry young man who felt powerless."

What is wrong with you?

Your car is no good. Your system sucks. Go back home.

Go back home.

Today I have realized a new set of ambitions in life related to the use of bass.

If you've stopped watching them at this point watch these:

Now tell me America has contributed nothing to world culture. Please. I dare you.


Killing you and killing me. It's the soliloquy of chaos.

So I've been reading all this shit about Guru's private life since he died and it just makes me like him more and more. He sounds like an amazing guy that was in a really weird place for much of his life. I can't stop wondering. I'd like to read an auto biography.

Wally Wood.

I'm not scared by horror.

Terrible books.

I remember being really affected by this when I was 18 or something. It has such a thoroughly dark tone.

On the recommendation of a trusted friend I checked out (from the Library) the Robert Zemeckis Beowulf yesterday. I was totally expecting to hate it, and quite frankly, that may be a bad thing about writing a review of it for you, my lovely reader. So, if you want to not have any expectations forced on you be me: stop reading this and rent it. Rent it thinking about the image above and how there is no way on god's green earth this movie can be any good at all. Then come back and read the following.

Normally. Normally I'm a purist. Really. I hate things that adapt other things. I hate the idea of taking something that is amazing and making a shitty second rate copy of it. There are exceptions. Usually they are the result of a genius (like Kubrick) being involved. But in some cases it is just blind luck that makes an imitation something good on its own. I hate Neil Gaiman and I'm no fan of the last decade of Zemeckis movies. And don't even get me started on digital animation.

But. But this movie totally blew me away. It is like watching a train wreck. Not a car wreck. Not a bicycle wreck. But actually getting to watch a giant 10 car passenger train run into, say, a fleet of school buses on their way home from school. The first two minute had me yawning. The Vikings and their big halls. Darkly lit and full of really out of date (three years old) C.G. animation. The animation was the first thing that won me over. It is clunky and awkward. It adds a bizarrely unreal look to the film. It bites so hard it becomes amazing.

The whole project looks like the result of a highschool AV class project. And it reads like one too. Because after two minutes the movie became insane. Hyper violent and sexualized. So many nearly naked computer made bodies. So much blood. One genius monster (Grendel, of course). And and endless series of "and then" story points. To no end. It loses all the lyrical beauty and subtle humanity of the original story. It destroys all the things that would make you (as an adult) enjoy a complex and ancient story. And in its wake you are left feeling like you are stuck in a room full of teenage nerds fantasizing their way to sex Valhala.

You're going to have to check your brain at the door. Your going to have to not use any of the life experience you gained past that age. But if you are able to do that, I guarantee that you'll have a blast. Just don't think. That should have been the movie's tag line.

Amy Goodman, Bill Moyers and Glenn Greenwald

This interview put a smile on my face the first time it was on. And now it actually gives me a lot of faith in humanity:
