Bloodrayne is near

The inimitable Dr. Boll has a treat for us this weekend. His latest masterwork, Bloodrayne. Some lucky souls have been allowed to see the finished work. Unfortunately they all seem to be haters. But is that really so hard to understand? Most humans cannot comprehend the UB genius level. We hate that which we cannot understand. That said, these sots will have their eyes stabbed out as penance for their ignorance shortly.

But not us. We are ready for the weekend. We are going to prepare by fasting on nothing but blood until show time. This should get us into the mood. In fact, we're already in line at the Burbank 16. It's not very long yet, but if you wait until Friday to get your tickets you'll be very envious of our position in line.

The master calls us!

I think you should drink more water.

I read somewhere that dehydration causes bad things to happen like fainting, dizziness, poor judgement and accepting life-threatening dares.

Smartwater is pretty tasty.

Salt is good for you too.

You know when you were younger and your mom would ask you if so and so jumped of a cliff would you? Well if Uwe Boll was going to jump off a cliff I would. I would do anything that man tells me to do, follow him right into the gates of hell. Because you KNOW that is wear he is heading. MAKE THE BAD MAN STOP!!!!!

I mean, yeas masster.

If I could be in two places at once I would force both of you to bow down in supplication at the first showing Friday. But I currently can't, so the one of you closest to me on Friday will get the honor.

The unlucky one will be asked to flog themselves in penance later.

“I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse,” “The Godfather,” 1972.

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…
