MSN told me this morning that “George Carlin, who died of heart failure Sunday at 71, leave behind
not only a series of memorable routines, but a legal legacy: His most
celebrated monologue, a frantic, informed riff on those infamous seven
words, led to a Supreme Court decision on broadcasting offensive
language.”

i remember watching this stand-up of his where he talked about a scab on his head for over 5 minutes and i just cracked up til’ my insides hurt. it was so damn hilarious. sad to see him go.

I thought I’d give this video thing a shot before I head off to join my brother’s band, The Audition, on a few legs of their Warped Tour performances.

This is part of a real website, I kid you not. It’s called “Extreme Ironing.” If only I knew how to iron in the first place…

“Welcome to the home of extreme ironing – the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt.”

movies at a glance: “The Incredible Hulk” June 18, 2008

The Incredible Hulk: I should probably preface this with the idea that I actually did enjoy Ang Lee‘s Hulk from a years back. Without any real knowledge of Hulk as a character, I thought it worked brilliantly (barring the mutant dogs) until the bizarre ending sequence. But I knew that serious encapsulation of the character could never last.

People want to see “Hulk smash!”And I don’t blame them; The Incredible Hulk is spectacularly enjoyable as a monster fest. The story is shallow and Edward Norton seems bored through most of the flick (hardcore fans seem to be describing his perfmance as “weighted,” but I didn’t see it), but the “Hulk smash!” factor is through the roof, and it’s worthwhile for that alone. It’s truly a movie that benefits from seeing it on the big screen and watching the downtown destruction ensue.

Just check your brain at the door.

reading at a glance: ‘Preacher, Vol 1: Gone to Texas’ June 17, 2008

Without much time to devote to dedicated reading sessions, I’ve found myself turning to graphic novels as a reliable source of reading material. I can squeeze in a few pages every few hours, and it never takes me more than a few days to put one to bed. I’d love to spend more time reading works of a larger substance, but that just doesn’t jive with my schedule lately. That said, so long as I’m picking the right graphic novels, there’s no reason they can’t be as informative or entertaining as a book that isn’t rooted in art.


Preacher, Volume 1: Gone to Texas
: I picked up Preacher because of 1UP’s Shawn Elliott. You don’t learn to much about what’s going on in the first installment. A drunken priest with a misguided look on faith is imbued with a power equal to God and everyone in Heaven wants him killed for it. The first half of “Gone to Texas” outlines this setup and the early villains, but ditches them in the second half for a strange serial killer plot and throwaway characters we’re meant to trust and like before they’re haphazardly killed. It didn’t leave a particularly good taste in my mouth, especially after the great first half. But Elliott’s recommendation came with a catch: don’t judge the series on the first book. Thankfully, the setup is wild enough that I’ll give the next few a go before considering jumping ship.
