ride the wave

I saw you holding up the world
10,000 junkies tried to tear you away
You say hate lives in us all
You sell your love in 20 dollar bags

Shake It, Salome

I just got single sign-on with active directory authentication working for my company's telephone center's websites and I'm feeling high.

I share that elation with you by way of another man's remix of other men's words and music.

Surprise, Motherfucker

So, before watching 'Dexter' and 'Homeland' on SHO tonight, there was a super special warning about the content of these shows in light of the tragedy in Connecticut. I guess the regular warning about these shows being about serial killers and terrorists wasn't warny enough.

I'm fed up with people being surprised that in a country with lax gun control laws and a multi-billion dollar industry and special interest group lobbying to make them laxer that we have mass shootings.

school shootings:NRA interpretation of the 2nd amendment::KKK:1st amendment

Anyway, this post isn't about guns or school shootings, it's about the season finale of Dexter. The best part of the episode in my opinion was the posthumous return via flashbacks of James Doakes.

my god

moshe kasher > joke about Arnold Schwartzenegger > See you at the party, richter > Bad Lip Reading > Maria Bamford > Hitchens and now here I am watching this (embedding disabled - I guess Biola won't give you their jacket if you ask for it either):

at 2:52am with 1:37:andsomechange left to go.

I'm appalled that I am destroying the rest of my work week pulling an all nighter and the best the Dr Craig can field for the theism team is:
1. Cosmological argument
2. Telelogical argument
3. Moral argument
4. Resurrection of Jesus
5. Experiencing God

Really? You're stated goal is to lay out proof for theism (let's assume that the the is his the) and number 5 is "oh by the way, don't let logic and arguments for or against god get in the way of your primary experience of god". I feel like I'm spinning a bit...

But really Dr Craig is just preamble, an excuse(?), no foreplay...Hitchens is up now so I need to get down to the business of stroking it.

See you at the party, Richter

From here:

(5.) The Touch of Dutch

Total Recall is the second of three science-fiction films directed by The Netherlands’ own Paul Verhoeven. Like Robocop before, and Starship Troopers afterward, the film used glorified violence and dark satire to poke fun at commercialism, corporatism, and fascism. Through these films Verhoeven managed the radical act of making politically relevant themes prominent within mainstream hollywood cinema.

On the other hand, Director Len Wiseman’s previous works have all the social conscience of Karl Rove drowning endangered species in a lake of oil.

The rest of this image has been heavily censored

(4.) Get your ass to… nowhere?

There is a Hollywood myth which saw a recent resurgence, perhaps due to the box office disappointment of John Carter and Mars Needs Moms, which holds that movies taking place on Mars are destined to fail. Indeed if you also look at Red Planet, Ghosts of Mars, RocketMan, Mission To Mars, and Doom, it certainly looks that way. However, as a counter-example, this early-90′s Schwarzenegger flick made over $260 Million worldwide (on a $65 Million Budget):

(Shhhhh, he’s making a good point)

(3.) Eccentrica Gallumbits

So after abandoning the setting, and the satirical tone, but with an expanded $200 Million pricetag what exactly are they keeping from the original movie?

Is this what made the original film successful?

(2.) Requiem for a Johnny Cab

Not having seen the new film yet, I can’t say for certain whether the original’s best scene will be given a nod.

Even if Johnny-Cab returns, it is certainly going to be CGI, and there is just something about the animatronics that makes it work. I can’t quite put my finger on it….

Yes, that’s it!

At 1:21 in the above-linked video, A beturbaned Arnold Schwarzenegger not only skimps on the taxi fare, but insults an unfeeling robotic entity. And like so many T-1000s, the Johnny Cab reverts to revenge mode and attempts to run him down. The final shot of the scene is Johnny Cab burning, his face melting away as he utters a cheery “We hope you enjoyed the ride”, and explodes violently.

(1.) Rated-R for Awesome

Right now you might be saying “Hey dumbass, there is no R in Awesome”. Well there simply is too much awesome in the original film to split hairs, ARSEOME. There, I’ve had to create a whole new word to describe the movie, Happy? I’m sorry to say this but…

The Total Recall Remake is PG-13…

Let that sink in a minute, if you need help click here. (Embedding sadly disabled)

In case you can’t watch youtube, I’ll sum it up for you: Total Recall (1990) is one of the bloodiest action movies ever made. Director Len Wiseman previously emasculated the Die Hard franchise in a similar way, so what reason do we have to believe that this will be any different?

And the answer of course is none… none more reasons.
