I’ve been looking back over previous year-ends lately.
I began 2005 with a movie shoot, ended it with three holes in my stomach and endless medical bills.
I began 2006 optimistic, ended it unemployed.
I began 2007 preparing for a job interview with WWE in Stamford, Connecticut; ending it in Santa Ana.
Wait…Tyler Perry’s in the new Star Trek movie????
Bad idea. Really bad idea. Might as well cast Uwe Boll next.
But perhaps now there’s hope for Douglas Dunning to be the Klingon Captain.
For the past three years, I’ve given out an anti-award in retaliation for time’s stupid-ass selections of “The American Soldier” and “You” as person of the year. Criteria here were for being the person who had the most influence on the website besides me.
Our first winner was Patrick Graham, for being everyone’s favorite commenter;

Anybody doing anything for New Year’s Eve? I got nothing.
Two run-ins with big bureaucracies today…
Health insurance — because I did not submit an enrollment form exactly four months after I was hired, I must now wait until May to do it. This is moronic. I won’t say that they never told me that — it may well have been one of a zillion things [...]

4. Predator 2
5. Alien3 (pseudo director’s cut for the DVD set; Fincher not involved, but attempt made to duplicate his [...]

Somebody, somewhere…please write a NEW song about kung-fu that’s even the slightest bit catchy.
I will thank you forever, if it’s worth a damn.
Anything, anyFUCKINGthing so that whenever a new comedy involving martial arts comes out, I no longer have to hear GOD-DAMN “Whoa-ho-ho-hooooo! Whoa-ho-ho-hooooo! Everybody was kung-fu fighting!”
Yes, Dreamworks and Kung-fu Panda, I’m looking at [...]
I got to watch ALIENS VS. PREDATOR: REQUIEM
Is there any kind of metaphor or social commentary? Not exactly — this movie’s idea of subtlety is to have the Predalien attack a maternity ward, to show that all kinds of animals breed, I guess.
Here’s a glimpse of what I thought, with a link to a more [...]
