Project Grizzly

If you survived a bear attack would you...
a) Count you blessings and stay the fuck out of the woods?
or
b) Spend the next 10 years developing a bear-proof suit for the purpose of studying grizzlies?

I'd tend to lean towards a, but thanks to one crazy bastard that chose b, Project Grizzly to become a reality, so thank god for crazy people!

Pabst Blue...Coffin? (UPDATED WITH PIC)

Death just got a little more whimsical. Although I currently have to place this in the "pics or it didn't happen" category (updated), ABC News reports that apparently an older Illinois man has purchased a PBR themed coffin, and PARTIED OUT OF IT!

EL GRAND THEFT AUTO IV!!!

I'm sorry if I don't post anything for the next few days, as I'll be too busy engaging in car chases, watching people stumble down the stairs after I throw a brick at them, and taking my virtual lady on dates to the pool hall and bar in the wonderous world of Grand Theft Auto IV.

Spore!

If you haven't heard of Spore yet, well take about an hour off of work and goto Youtube/GameTrailers/Google/Etc. and search for it. You'll be excited too!

MC Paul Barman on...Everything

MC Paul Barman is, as my good friend The Iron Sheik would put it, "a very intelligent jew." Besides being the person responsible for some of the most creative rhyming in the history of hip hop (Cock mobster/it's a porn utopia/a cornucopia/of warm fallopia/Cock mobster/my dandy voice/ makes the most anti-choice Granny's panties moist), he's got some poignant little point-lets about art, music, humor etc. It's worth a watch, and buy his new shit when it comes out. Serious!

Newest Suicide Girl Not Actually a Human Being

As Eric already knows, I've absolutely never been a fan of Suicide Girls. It's entire foundation is based on "breaking the mold" by offering up an "alternative" (get it!) to Playboy by replacing plastic chicks with pallid ex Hot Topic employees with tattoos, extraneous piercings, and fragile StayPuft marshmallow skin. All points that I would have to make aside from personal preference are pretty well documented in this well known blogpost from a few years ago, The Death of Suicide Girls.

Mortal Kombat Vs DC Universe?!

I've been waiting to post this until it was "confirmed," and thanks to this proof from GamesRadar, Mortal Kombat Vs DC Univerise is in fact happening, and there's a teaser trailer! Now, I can never claim that Sub Zero vs Batman doesn't elicit a major question mark over my head, but I also can't say that this doesn't create a tremendous opportunity.

Creature Comforts - What is Art?

I absolute love Creature Comforts. Besides having an irrational boner for (well done) claymation, I really think the personifications in these characters is spot on. The clip that starts at 4:05 seriously had me on the floor.

(Thanks to my homeboy Dan Bruce (Bruce) Boardman for reminding me that such gems exist)

Men kissing more offensive than "A graphically severed human head"

According to last week's poll on What They Play a site dedicated to 'informing' parents about video games from a rating standpoint declared that "A man and woman having sex" was the most offensive thing that you could put in a video game. Two men kissing, a graphically severed human head and multiple f-bombs followed, respectively.

Aesop Rock - None Shall Pass

Am I the only one that thinks this beat sounds like something Goblin would have come up with for an Argento soundtrack? It's completely eerie, and the song itself slays. Anyone that could come up with the line "Who are we to heart huckabee art fuckery suddenly?" is ok in my book, not to mention the fact that I have a colossal chub for Jeremy Fish's wacky illustrations. Enjoy.
