With the influx of bootlegs and the like, it comes at no surprise that the movie industry is now planning to reward DVD patrons with added doodads and goodies in addition to the tons of bonus features on the discs themselves. However, as USA today reports, things go south real fast: “The trend continues with a spiced-up version of the cult classic ‘Showgirls’ (due July 27) that comes with several party games, including “Pin-the-pasties-on-the-showgirl” – complete with pasties and a blindfold – and party favors such as ‘Showgirls’ shot glasses and playing cards.” Of all the things to promote as…

In a response to Entry 60 – Cleaning the Lent Trap, an anonymous person named “Jay” wrote the following: “You are a real idiot! You must be a stupid Baptist whom can’t think for himself. Are you really that shallow?” Now, them’s fightin’ words if ever I heard them. I don’t like to back down from a challenge (at least when fists or guns are not in the picture). Yet, “Jay” left no contact info… so I am forced drop gloves and take this to the public arena in hopes he or she returns (which I know will never be…

The thrill of the hunt is one of life’s little pleasures. Some prefer live game – deer, bears, cows, etc. That’s not for me. I’m no PETA freak, mind you. There’s just no challenge to it! Live quarry is everywhere. You can step outside your door and shoot a pigeon. Hell, there’s no need to shoot them. You can walk right up to most animals and kick them. Not very sporting. Plus it’s messy. I am a neat stuff hunter. I prefer elusive artifacts to living creatures. It’s nice. For one thing, you don’t have to be a good shot.…

Ok, so it seems that “they” are now saying that low carb diets aren’t good. The “they” in question are the proverbial “them,” who say such things. Now it’s all about the fiber, baby. Eat stuff with high fiber and high carbs and you’ll feel fuller (thus tending not to eat as much), and you’ll have energy to burn the pounds off. And they spend good money to tell us this stuff we already know. But we were all to afraid to disobey the Atkins overlords despite conventional wisdom. Maybe we should just keep on doing what we’re doing. I…

It has just occurred to me that there is something odd about birthdays – we celebrate the one who was born. When you think about it, there’s really nothing to being born. You have no say in the matter, nor does one recall the pain that occurs. Parents, moms to be exact, recall all the hardships. The nine months of carrying around what would seem to be an undigested watermelon and then the subsequent passing of said watermelon has got to be a more noteworthy feat than actually popping out, yeah? And then the whole raising a kid – from…

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, the starting gun of the Christian period known as Lent. For those unfamiliar with this situation I’ll break it down. You attend mass (on your own recognizance since it isn’t a Holy Day of Obligation) then wait in line to have the ashes of year old palm fronds smeared on your forehead in the sign of the cross. It is done to remind us of our mortality – “Remember man, that thou art dust and unto dust thou shalt return (Genesis 3:19).” We are to be humbled before the 40-day fasting period that is to be…

Today on some forum, the classic question was asked: Could go create a rock so heavey the even he could not lift it? Could he heat a burrito to such a temperature that even he could not eat it? So I posted my answer, to which it was promptly ignored. But I bring it hear to flesh it out. If God can create a rock so heavy that even he can’t lift it, it would mean a sort of relative omnipotence. Since it’s only his rock that can defeat him, he remains the dominant power over everything else other than…

I’m sure some smart cookie out there has said something to the extent: graduation is only the beginning of education. If not, I call dibs! Said or not, it holds true, and makes a dandy intro to another lump of words devoted to my further exploits into the realm of schooling. If you’re not up to speed, you can read I and II respectively. And away we go: You may be wondering why I’m only taking two classes this semester. Well, you would be wondering if you knew that before I just told you. But yes, just two classes. I…

How appropriate a title for an instance of Friday the 13th. In a few hours, the calendar shall turn to the farce that is Valentine’s Day… yet again. The aisles have already run red with the blood of the spurned and choked with the chocolate bon-bons and plush toy offerings to Aphrodite’s brat, Cupid. “Bitter,” you ask? Maybe, but it’s still a stupid holiday. For those not up on your Christianity (yes, the day designated to “get it on” is a religious thang) I shall give an all to brief history: Valentine was martyred in the 200’s by for being…

Well I guess it’s time for me to weigh in on the whole Super Bowel Half Time controversy that’s going around. I must say, I was shocked and/or appalled by this incident. Not at the time of it’s happening. Nay I was lulled into a stupor by the tediousness of the show, and didn’t see Janet’s boob, much like everyone else in America. Admit it, you all missed it too. And I’m not shocked and/or appalled by the boob either. I’m angrier about all the boobs talking about it the next day. Fines here, lambastings there… and all about Janet’s…
