Spore Creature Creator Released Upon The World

I've been geeking out pretty hard about Spore ever since I heard about it over a year ago. In an attempt to populate the Spore world with some serious ridiculous creatures, Maxis has released a demo and a paid, full version of their creature creator. I spent hours last night messing around with it, and made a number of ridiculous creations, including the little guy you see above you. I named him Goreno as a tribute to this site. Hopefully, I didn't save over him.

If you're bored at work today (and who are you kidding, you're reading this), than you can check out a bunch of extra clips from "Halloween: 25 Years of Terror". The film came out a few years ago and did an amazing job of chronicling everything it could about the "Halloween" series. Now director Stephan Hutchinson is sharing all the leftover goodies on his Youtube channel that didn't make it on the DVD. So check it out, yo.

More "X-Files 2" pics. It's times like these that I begin to wonder if we all just fall in line with company's marketing campaigns like little lemmings. I guess the answer's yes.

Today unleashes a complete overhaul for the official site to "Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer". The film is pretty sweet, if you like Robert Englund hamming it up and hilariously obvious Canadian accents. And really, who doesn't love those things?

You too can help Clive Barker save his "Midnight Meat Train", which is not sexual at all even though it kind of sounds like it. Anyways, info on Barker's call to action at the link.

In Real People News: 

The Japanese Cannibal Otaku Killer couldn't escape execution this week, despite his genius "the Rat-Man did it" defense. For the life of me, I can't see why it didn't work. He should have hired R. Kelly's lawyers.

Jabbing a shower curtain through someone's eye is something I'd see in a direct to video zombie movie and say "no way that could happen". Wouldn't you know it, I was wrong.

In this day in age of insane crime fighting technology, it's sort of nice to know that some old lady can get away with killing 5 of her husbands before anyone bats an eyebrow. Okay it's not nice per say, but it's at least interesting.

On this day in history: 

1900: The Empress Dowager of China orders all foreigners killed. Among those meeting this fate are the foreign diplomats, their families, as well as hundreds of Christian missionaries and their Chinese converts.

Anamorph (REVIEW)

“A psychological thriller based on the concept of anamorphosis, a painting technique that manipulates the laws of perspective to create two competing images on a single canvas.”

Sad news this morning, as Special FX guru Stan Winston has apparently died after a long bout with cancer. His most recent work can be seen in this summer's "Iron Man". At the time of his death, he was working on FX for "Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins". He was extremely talented, and he will be missed by us all.

First pic from "The Descent 2", and it features one of the underground creatures. Principal photography has already wrapped with a 2009 release being eyed.

The Novella "Throttle", co-written by Stephen King and his son Joe Hill has been picked up by producer Nick Weschler for his anthology film "He is Legend". The film is basically a tribute to the author Richard Matheson, and "Throttle" is described as equal parts "Duel" and "Breakdown". Also of note, King's son currently has projects being developed at both Warner Brothers and Dimension.

Robert Downey Jr. has signed on to star in the comic adaptation of "Cowboys vs Aliens" for Dreamworks/Universal. The comic, as I'm sure a lot of you are aware, tells the tale of what happens when Aliens suddenly interrupt a conflict between cowboys and Native Americans in the Old West. Interested yet? In case you needed something more, it's being produced by Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Ervin Rustemagic, Rich Marincic and Steven Spielberg. Christ! That's like the Hollywood Superfriends right there. Expect more on this as we get a hold of it.

Banned poster for teeth, showing what it would look like if the titular toothed vagina girl had to get an x-ray. Also, major props to whoever came up with the URL "Vagident", because that's ridiculously awesome.

In Real People News: 

Man tosses bag out of window on the freeway, full of kittens. Needless to say, it didn't end well. Couldn't he have just drowned them like everyone else?

If you live in New York City and have to walk your dog on the streets every day, you might want to watch out for that street sweeper. After the pooch got swept up, bystanders chased the guy down for blocks before he stopped. He then refused to turn off the motor even though they informed him he had sucked the dog up.

Topless women's soccer combines two of my favorite things, and also makes me a bit confused. Anyone who finds me video is my new best friend (link SFW).

On this day in history: 

1939: In Versailles, Eugene Weidmann becomes the last person to be publicly guillotined.
