A Sadder Day

My earlier satirical blog about Alone in the Dark isn't half as funny as this supposedly true account of the scripting of said masterpiece. Enjoy.

By the way, the trailer for Bloodrayne may make you go blind. You've been warned.

How does he keep getting video game rights? If I were the owners of a video game and if Uwe approached me not only would I so No Effing Way, I would put him into my next game as the main evil bad guy of the first level. You know the guy who is way easy to kill.

PONG: WHERE THE HELL DOES THE BALL GO? THE MOVIE.

The Right Side Paddle - Played by Ben Affleck, in what some are saying the role he was born to play. That of a lifeless wooden paddle.

The Left Side Paddle - Played by The O.C's Peter Gallagher's Eyebrows, The Eyebrows were director Uwe Bole's first choice. When asked about them Uwe responded "They are just like this impenentrable barrier, and we were able to get them for cost." When asked if it would be difficult to work without Peter the pair answer: Not at all we have been carrying him since we became a unibrow back in '82.

The ball is set to be played by teen sensation Britney Spears. When asked why? she responed with "ummmm....."
An ananoymous source close to the singer/actress was quoted saying, "dude, that woman needs to make some money, last night her flippen AMEX black card got turned down when I tried to use it to get new cornrolls, I didn't marry her for her looks and personality, damnit."

It was such a great game. I didn't know there were enough movies at the theatre every week for there to even be a #14. History making epic piece of cinema!!
Teaspoon, I am totally down with Pong. Can Brittany Murphy and Tara Reid have roles? Maybe they can be the Pong cheerleaders...

Some things are better left uncovered

Sometimes you hear a cover and go to yourself, "hey, that's doper than Sam Perkins at Woodstock." Other times, you wonder (possibly aloud) "that no talent hack! They couldn't even carry [inset original artist here]'s guitar case!" [Ed. note: You should have seen what the author originally wanted to use as the carried item. Believe us, it wasn't a guitar case.]

Today was an example of the second. Some fool whose name I cannot even spare the mental RAM for, has covered "High and Dry" by the esteemed Radiohead. This is up there. With the worst covers of all time. Some songs just don't ever need to be covered. Like this one. And like "It's My Life" by Talk Talk. But No Doubt did a decent job with that one, although they crapped all over it with that video.

This one today was bad. When you do a cover, you're supposed to bring something to it. Maybe your sound is similar to the original artist's, and you b…

Review: Eddie Izzard at The Coronet Theatre

Saturday turned into a date night without even trying. I made dinner for my lovely wife and then we went out to see maybe the finest working stand up commedian today, Eddie Izzard. No, he's not touring right now. He was in LA doing four nights in this tiny 99-seat theatre, working out new material.

He came on about 9 pm, as scheduled (I don't think he realized he was in LA) and proceeded to do mostly new stuff for 90 minutes. He was in bloke mode, no dress or makeup.

Given the size of the crowd, he would occasionally get into conversations with us about the accuracy of some of his historical jokes. He did reference some of his earlier bits, but that's his style if you've listened to or seen more than one of his shows. Some of the new stuff was quite the hysterical. Great bit about houseflies. He wrapped up with "The Deathstar Canteen" from Circle, but a bit altered, which was kind of like the Rolling Stones playing Satisfaction live and extending the so…
