…from Jeff Goldstein over at Protein Wisdom discussing the latest happenings with Iran:

Let me put this as delicately as I can: when the EU is being rebuked as the hardliners in their attempts to prevent Iran from becoming nuclear armed, the world is about to be royally ass fucked by a big, cold, radioactive warhead. So long, and thanks for all the (gefilte) fish!

Granted, we are talking about nuclear annihilation so I should be sobbing after I finish chuckling, but still. Damn funny stuff. Oh and props on the allusion to Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Juden style.

One of My New Favorite Sites…That Should Be One of Your’s as Well January 19, 2006, 7:48 pm

Posted by quintapalus in Humor, Movie Reviews.

I’m a big movie guy (or if I am feeling extra pretentious on a given day, I’m a big cinema and film fan), and this site not only keeps me up to date with the latest news about upcoming films but it does so with fantastic humor and snark.

Here’s a perfect example of just what I am talking about:

Damon, Affleck To Wear Chaps

affleckdamon.jpgHoping to ruin another American classic, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have announced to OK! magazine that they will be teaming up to remake Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, with Damon playing the Sundance Kid and Affleck playing Butch Cassidy. Though no reason is mentioned for why they would attempt to recreate the famous picture, nominated for 7 Oscars in 1970, I offer up this possibility: Brokeback Mountain wasn’t gay enough.

Bolding mine.

See what I mean? So do yourself a favor and make I Watch Stuff one of your daily visits.

Taken from a post over at Ace of Spades, which was commenting on news of Iraqi insurgent versus foreign jihadist violence:

“The coalition between Maniacs and Lunatics just isn’t holding up the way we all hoped it would.”

As Glenn Reynolds would say: heh.

Where Have All the Peaceful Rappers Gone… December 21, 2005, 9:13 pm

…long time passing. Oh wait, those are flowers that are referenced in that sweet hippie song, not rappers. Well, you’ll be as shocked and confused as I was when I tell you that violence *gasp* actually broke out at a new release party of a murdered rap star. It seems that violence is able to follow these fine men way into the afterlife. It’s almost like a bad horror movie.

Three people were stabbed early Wednesday at a Manhattan club that was hosting a record-release party for a new collection of duets featuring slain rapper Notorious B.I.G.

Forgive me if I pass on the next Tupac related event.  Much as I love Tupac, I sure would like to see age 29. Anyone know what PM Dawn is up to lately? They seemed pretty harmless.

I still like “This Land” the best.  Anyone know what happened with the lawsuit on that song since it really wasn’t covered under parody rights?
