Veterans should be a thing of the past.

Transformers movie update (again)

IGN Filmforce claims to have the inside track on the voice cast for next year's Spielberg-produced Transformers flick (via CHUD's Dave Davis): "..veteran Jon Voight, man-mountain Michael Clarke Duncan, high-haired Las Vegas hunk Josh Duhamel, plus Bernie Mac, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro[.]"

That's right. Go back and read it again if you have to, but that line most definitely has the words "John Turturro" in it. So let's recap:

  1. Transformers feature-length movie,
  2. Produced by Stephen Spielberg,
  3. With John Turturro as the voice of one of the Transformers.

If they can somehow work Scarlett Johansson and Wilco into this, they'll have to sedate me prior to entering the theater so that my over-stimulated endorphin center doesn't accidentally plunge me into a coma.


Correction: As much as I love Wilco, I realize that they might not be 100% appropriate for a Transformers movie soundtrack. In keeping with the 1980s nostaglia goodness theme, I'd like to amend that last sentence so that it reads, "Scarlett Johansson and The Scorpions featuring Eddie Money".

Happy Stoner Day, man.

So, as I was trolling the murky waters of the internet this evening, I decided to check out Something Awful. I used to read SA every day, but lately it hasn’t been very funny. Too many boring, time-consuming, inside jokes for those who participate in MMORPGs. Or whatever. Tonight, however, changed my mind. The article is from yesterday, but it should stay on the front page for a week. Holy shit, it took me almost fifteen minutes to get through the damn thing because I was laughing so hard.
The point of the whole exercise is to fill us in on The Bradford Exchange, purveyors of tasteless and horrific “memorabilia” to hillbillies, rednecks, idjits, rubes and morons since 1912.
Read it for yourself. The analysis of the actual items for sale is great, but the suggestions are priceless.

A stirring rendition of General Patton riding on the back of an American eagle, with scenes of dogs or cats (you pick the breed) painted on the interior of the wings.

Need I say more?
