Your favorite mind-altering television program stars Alanis Morrissette this season?
As an obstetrician?
Interesting casting considering she is my goddess of all things lyrical and sexy.
Weeds on Showtime starts June 8.
Slumdog Millionaire received the Best Film of 2008 honor from the Kansas City Film Critics Circle this past Sunday.
Slumdog tells the tale of an orphaned Indian teen who is accused of cheating when he wins the Hindi version of Who Wants to be A Millionaire.
And is brilliantly directed by Danny Boyle of Trainspotting and 28 Days Later fame.
I wholeheartedly agree with the Film Critics Circle and truly feel this movie is deserving of a little gold man for Best Picture.
Let’s hope the Academy agrees.
If you haven’t seen it yet it comes with my highest recommendation.
Hit up the link for the rest of the winners.
Super-director J.J. Abrams and his latest trailer for Star Trek have officially hit the Internets in 1080p awesomeness.
Go watch it!
Hottie Chris Pine as Captain Kirk in tighty whities (thx J.J., I’m sold) included! (Oh and and there’s some girl.)
As I sit here mastering out wedding videos in all their high definition glory I stumbled across this Wedding Fail and it made me laugh — really hard.
With Halloween drawing near it’s time to start pimping out your house Thriller style.
With a little compressed air and your hot glue gun you can achieve some pretty realistic cobwebbing action.
It’s how they do it in Hollywood baby!
Bob Vila eat your heart out.
P.S. – If you don’t have an air compressor you might try this technique with a can of air — you know for keyboard cleaning — not inhaling.
I always looked up to this guy.
