Movie ratings

July 20, 2008 at 12:32 am (Movies)

<***DARK NIGHT SPOILER ALERT***>

Brokeback Mountain was rated R for “sexuality, nudity, language and some violence.” Heath Ledger’s character fucks a guy, and it gets an R rating.

The Dark Night was rated PG-13 because of “intense sequences of violence and some menace.” Heath Ledger’s character tortures and kills dozens of people, including BLOWING UP A HOSPITAL and it gets a PG-13 rating (but they don’t show any blood).

Family values, people.

There is a god

The Democratic primary is over.

It’s about fracking time.  Full disclosure: I am registered as an independent, and Oregon doesn’t have an open primary.  I have been looking forward to President Obama since his speech at the Democratic convention in 2004.  Tonight he was respectful, visionary, and inspirational.  Tonight, for the first time, possibly the first time ever, I felt proud to be an American.

The best basketball team in Oregon

February 29, 2008 at 6:34 pm (Portland, Sports)

…The PSU Vikings.

The win extended the Vikings’ Big Sky winning streak to 10 and raised their season record to 19-9, matching the highest win total in school history as a Division I program (19-9 in 2004-05 and 19-13 in 2006-07).

I don’t know if I should be glad or sad.  The only prospect we really have of any post season ball this year is the Big Sky tournament.  Oh well, at least I’ll get a good seat for cheap.  I really thought the Blazers were going to be good this year, but now I’ll be happy if they finish with a winning record.

Garfield minus Garfield

February 26, 2008 at 7:48 pm (Humor)

Oh my.  I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.  Actually, I laughed so hard I cried.  That might just be because I was such a huge Garfield fan when I was a kid.  I am assuming that these are actual Garfield cartoons, with the cat and his thoughts airbrushed out.  Whether or not that’s true, this is one of the most hilariously disturbing things I have ever seen.  This might not be work safe.  I had to go to the bathroom…seriously, I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.

Here is what the site says about itself:

Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor (sic) disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life?

Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against lonliness and methamphetamine addiction in a quiet American suburb.

Call Kimmy, Jon.  You have nothing to lose.

If the title of this post means anything to you, you absolutely must click here. Even if it doesn’t, and you want to see some really bad local commercials, do it.

Personally, I am glad to finally see what Kenny looks like. The last time I lived in the Burg, it was apparently before WTAP was capable of producing its own video. I had no idea what I was missing.

UPDATE: you know you are accessing something from Parkersburg when download times are listed for dial-up and ISDN only.

Quote of the Century

February 21, 2008 at 8:24 pm (Justice, Quote of the day)

Causing the back of a boy’s head to be placed against the clothed chest of a 23-year-old counselor is qualitatively different from causing a 12-year-old boy to place his tongue or his penis in the family dog’s anus.

The backstory is, unfortunately, tragic (note: it does not involve zooporn)

2 months between posts… I almost threw in the towel.  Thanks to 1 and 1, who automatically renewed my domain registration!  Hope this post is worth $5.99!

I don’t blame the man for taking the job.  Anyone in that position would have made the same decision, and good for him.  But seriously, he couldn’t stay around long enough to coach the Fiesta Bowl?  Way to screw over your old players, bro. Joe Manchin was also was less than diplomatic:

“Something is wrong with the profession of college coaching today when a leader’s word is no longer his bond.”

Meanwhile, neckfro sends along this little gem.
