  1. Why does this site play the music of hell bound or already in hell bands, such as Nirvana and Garbage???
  2. A brief parody of one of my favorite novels: Source: David M. Brown takes on Jane Eyre JAME EYRE by Chuck Bronte I was born in 19__ in the town of N__ Y___ C___, in the year of the second inauguration of His Lordship R____d R____n. My parents having been annihilated in the fiery bosom of a subway train wreck but a short time after, or rather just slightly before, my introduction into the world, I was entrusted to the care of an aunt of my father's third cousin who had survived the cataclysm in an adjacent car and thus been able to attend to my father's fitfully gasped last
  3. I'd love to get a chance to sit down and talk to Conan O'Brien. And if the dead are allowed, I'd like to meet the Bronte sisters, especially Charlotte. They were three of the most courageous and passionate authors that ever lived.
  4. I've been looking forward to this one for some time. Is anyone here lucky enough to live near a scheduled screening and planning to attend it?

And, wow, is that Barbara Nicolosi review encouraging. I can't wait.

  6. Though I don't particularly like anime more than any other style of film, I did occasionally go to the Anime Club at my old school. (Hey, a free movie once a week, who cares if anyone sees you there?) For some reason we watched more TV shows than movies, so while I don't have any movies to recommend that aren't already mentioned, I do have a short list of the funniest anime shows of all time: Dragon Half -IF. YOU. WATCH. ONLY. ONE. ANIME. THIS. SHOULD. BE. IT. It is the most surreally funny comedy you will ever see. If my memory serves me correctly, this was done while the writer was on LSD
  7. There's something I'm not understanding here: Why is Satan played by a woman?
  8. This is the funniest thing I've seen on the Internet in MONTHS. Click here.
  9. The first four seasons of "The X-Files" were good, though sometimes I had to discard reason and let my love of atmosphere take over. The fourth season had a few gems that were genuinely funny, like "Small Potatoes": MULDER: But the baby's father is an alien? AMANDA: No, no, I didn't say he was an alien, I said he was from another planet. His name is Luke Skywalker. He's what's known as a Jedi Knight. SCULLY: Did he have a light saber? And anyone that has ever seen an episode of "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" cannot deny that it is high art at its finest. Oh, and what about "Th
  10. From news.com.au Man cuts off penis, eats it July 13, 2003 A MALAYSIAN man sliced off his own penis, then fried and ate it after taking hallucinatory pills that caused him to hear voices urging him to mutilate himself, police said today. The 34-year-old man claimed he only realised what he had done when he saw blood oozing from his crotch, said a police spokesman in the town of Sitiawan, 300km north of Kuala Lumpur. The man had taken hallucinatory pills before sleeping on Friday and awoke hearing voices telling him to chop off his penis and devour it, the spokesman said on custo

    Stacey Orrico

    Quick question: I was browsing around a Christian bookstore today and I saw a poster for a singer named Stacey Orrico. Then, just a few minutes ago, I flipped on MTV and saw someone that looked very much like her. Being absolutely uninterested in the current popular music scene, I just wanna know, has an actual Christian singer made it big?

    I know all my Harry Potter-related posts are starting to get annoying, but this is the last one, I swear! Check out 345 Ways to Annoy Severus Snape. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. For those of you who don't like Potter, many of them can be applied to any teacher (or any other person). My favourites: 32. Every lesson, quote things he said last lesson. Word for word. 42. If you're a well-read Ravenclaw, bring large piles of books to class, and verify anything he states. Loudly. (ie: 'He's right you know! or 'He's done it again!') 16. Leave him invitations to Sirius Bl
  13. UK Reuters POTTER MAGIC SETS HOUSE ABLAZE MADRID (Reuters) - A woman has set her Madrid home on fire while cooking up a potion in an attempt to imitate the fictional wizard Harry Potter, emergency services say. The 21-year-old was rescued by firemen and treated for minor injuries, but half her home was destroyed. The ambulance service said she had told them she was trying to emulate the boy magician, hero of the books by J K Rowling that have been a sensation among adults and children alike. For want of more magical ingredients, the woman cooked up a potion of water, oil, alc

    Terminator 3

    SDG, what did you think of Nick Stahl's performance in the movie? I'm still can't get over my disappointment about how Edward Furlong couldn't pull out of his drug haze and do a decent movie for once.

    Terminator 3

    YES!!!! Being a fan of the first two movies, you don't know how happy I am to hear this. I was afraid to hope too much.

Didn't you say that you looked like Harry Potter? Cuz Victor Krum is supposed to look more like a bowlegged mini-Snape. Nope, I'm all Anglo-American as far as I know. And the accent thing is gonna be a big problem...cuz my French accent is really Monty Python. Too bad she isn't British, because I can do a quite accurate Received Pronunciation accent.
  18. Wow, you should meet a thirteen year old girl I know that has a rather disturbing obsession with Alan Rickman, along with other men who are about four times her age. The strange thing is her father is not old and he is very much a part of her life. She is a big fan of Conan O'Brien though, so I have very great respect for her. Definitely. I cannot wait to see Snape throw that pathetic tantrum onscreen!
  19. I nominate myself for the role of Fleur Delacour. :wink:
  20. Well, for one thing, Alan Rickman was simply not intimidating enough. Snape is descrived as having "cold, black eyes that remind you of tunnels." Whenever Rickman tried to put on a menacing look, he simply looked confused. In addition, Snape is supposed to be a harsh, sadistic teacher who ruthlessly bullies Harry because of a childish grudge. Though Rickman did do a good job of conveying intense dislike with every look at Harry, it seemed to me like the wrong kind of dislike. His look was the look of someone hating with a warranted reason, which of course it was not. Of course, this can be bla
