More Moorehating

Two more anti-Michael Moore movies being peddled on the internet -

Farenhype 9/11

Michael Moore hates America

I'm curious to watch them and see if any of them are remotely well made.

PORN TO RUN

From the NY Post - September 29, 2004 -- THE adult film industry is hoping to pump up John Kerry's somewhat flaccid presidential campaign with "The Porn for Kerry DVD." Pro-Kerry group Pornforprogress.com is hawking the dirty disc, which has porn stars portraying the likes of Jenna Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Ann Coulter, Al Franken, Tom Ridge and Lyndie England. All proceeds from the DVD, tastefully described as "part political satire and part hardcore hot sex," go toward Kerry campaign efforts in swing states. God bless America! Here's the original site.

Xday

One more quick post before I go - happy Anniversary to the X-Men, who celibrate 41 years of great storytelling today. You're the Man Stan, and I'm sure Jack Kirby is smiling down from heaven today.

The Movie that Makes the Brain Die

I haven't seen F911 yet. I want to, I just never have gotten around to it. Well, the right has their own version now. Welcome to Celsius 41.11 (Website here). What is Celsius 41.11 - the temperature at which the brain starts to die, apparently. Woopdie freakin doo!

Happy BDAY!

Holy Cow, I survived to 23! Shouts to Tyler Brown, who turns 24 today! Woohoo!

Shaun of the Dead

Shaun of the Dead was probably the second best movie I've seen all year, closely following Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (which interestingly enough is out on video as of today! Go buy it!) SotD is perfect British comedy matched with legitimate horror cred. I expected it to be a crappy little movie that I would like; but there was nothing bad or low budget looking about it - go see Shaun of the Dead!

Fantasy Wrestling?

I think we can all see why WWE has been trying to bust online fantasy leagues - they want to make you pay to do theirs - http://fantasy.wwe.com

In related news, Marvel is trying to shut down popular X-Men game X-Assault, which I think is really silly as it promotes keeping current with X-Men storylines (which means buying the comics, sillys). Check out www.nixonvision.com for details and how you can help.

Dave Matthews is a poop dumper!

From CBS Chicago:

"Rock star Dave Matthews and his tour bus driver are facing a filthy lawsuit.The Illinois Attorney General's office says they're responsible for dumping up to 800-gallons of raw human waste from a tour bus onto the Kinzie Street Bridge earlier this month. The nasty mess rained down on passengers aboard a sightseeing boat two weeks ago.The lawsuit accuses the band and one of its tour bus drivers, Stefan Wohl, of violating state water pollution and public nuisance laws. It seeks $70,000 in civil penalties." The rest of the story is here.
