No Icecream, No TV, No Fun: Why Madonna Sucks, Chapter 10.

Remember that mom (perhaps it’s even your mom) that totally sucked and wouldn’t let her kids have sugar, watch movies without a G rating and imposed silly curfews like "when the street lights go on, I want you home immediately!"? Well, it looks like America has ourselves another ultra-conservative mommy machine. Only this time, her children will be able to call her a hypocrite as soon as they decide to look up what Mommy’s past was like in their local Barnes and Nobels. Good luck hiding that sex book of yours Madonna. If I went to school with your children, I would pack that sex book along side my lunch box to taunt your kids. I’d also tell them that the Kabbalah man doesn’t exist too. [Madonna is a mean mommy article]

The Master, the movie.

"Originally planned as a full-length film, The Master was intended to give gamers the movie they deserved.  It was inspired in part as a parody of Nintendo’s 1989 movie, The Wizard.  Nintendo’s movie was regarded by some as "family fun" and a cheap marketing gimmick by others.  In the summer of 2002, production of The Master began."

 This one is for the leetest geeks ever. Lame? naturally. Hilarious? Absolutely.[Watch Now]

"In a deliciously ironic twist of fate, shortly before airing a segment
aimed at embarrassing the Bush administration by suggesting that it had
staged a video conversation between the president and soldiers in Iraq,
the Today show was caught staging . . . a video stunt.
..

Just as the segment came on the
air, two men waded in front of Kosinki . . . and the water barely
covered their shoe tops! That’s right, Kosinski’s canoe was in no more
than four to six inches of water!"

I saw this when it originally aired and
just had to find it online and post it. I love it when the media gets
busted playing the game it spends so much time criticizing.[News Busters Link]
