    I didn’t think it would be possible to top the lego version of “Silence of the Lambs” but remixing The Weather Girls to that ridiculous anti-gay NOM commericial is Hystericaly BRILLIANT!! The clouds are gathering all right, but it’s raining men!

    (can I bring a friend?)

  2. says

    Too true WAYNE, yea verily!

    And I ♥ Barack Hussein Obama. Less than 3 months on the job and he sounds like a classic. What an amazing contrast to the last one.

  3. Dback says

    That “Silence” musical is the most brilliantly twisted thing I’ve seen in awhile. Are they seriously doing the entire film like this?

  4. Tom says

    I always wondered how many times Halle Berry had to shower after her sex scenes with BBT in Monster’s Ball. Poor thing…makes me shudder just to think about it. Let’s hope the Oscar was worth it.

  5. Brandon says

    In response to the NOM commmercial:


    Poor straight privileged white male/female population, you’re so oppressed! Heaven forbid someone should shock you back to reality from your heteronormative fantasy. Grow the fuck up. It’s two thousand and fucking nine.

    What a prick Billy Bob is. I will never watch any of his movies again, let alone buy or rent them. Fucking immature. I’m sick of stars acting like they cured cancer or negotiated world peace and we owe them something.

    As for the Storm Gathering video: funny. But… I hated the song back then and still hate it.
