To Christmas or Not to Christmas?

I’m always disturbed by the yearly Christmas war, where minority religions and anti-religions face off against the juggernaut of Christianity. Many cringe when “Merry Christmas” is uttered, while Christmas trees become holiday trees. Some believe that only Christmas decorations should be allowed to adorn government buildings, and that only “Merry Christmas” should be uttered. If…

Death on Black Friday

[kml_flashembed movie=”http://www.youtube.com/v/Ue8DjYIK2Ow” width=”350″ height=”288″ wmode=”transparent” /] Every once and a while, there are certain events that make us stop and think about what is really important. A man was trampled to death today, during a Walmart store opening. He was a 34 year old night clerk, most likely making little more than minimum wage. Now…

The God Who Wasn’t There Review

[kml_flashembed movie=”http://www.youtube.com/v/krHzHdLhwkA” width=”350″ height=”288″ wmode=”transparent” /] Throughout history, it’s been quite a tricky feat to successfully challenge religion; it’s almost become some kind of covert art.

Seed: How People Like Uwe Boll Murder the Horror Genre

[kml_flashembed movie=”http://www.youtube.com/v/vhvf3SDoaWM” width=”350″ height=”288″ wmode=”transparent” /] I’ve officially seen the most disgusting film of my life, and I don’t mean the “ooo, did you just see his head explode” kind of disgusting either. I’m talking about Seed, directed by the notoriously untalented Uwe Boll. Every scene in the film plays out as if the camera…

Burn After Reading

Burn After Reading is an absolutely fabulous romp into absurdist comedy. Basically, the film is composed of many small misunderstandings that lead to quite an explosive ending. The story follows an ex-CIA agent whose memoir falls into the hands of two bumbling gym employees. They mistake the book on disc for something much more sinister…

Sometimes Apple Sucks

[kml_flashembed movie=”http://www.youtube.com/v/0yGt3mmLmK8″ width=”350″ height=”288″ wmode=”transparent” /] So, I wanted to hook up a second screen to my iMac. Leave it to Apple to use a mini-DVI port instead of a full fledged DVI port; but don’t worry, Apple makes a $20 cable that will do what the iMac should have done all along. Now, I…
