Double Shot of Kill Bill

I don't know how I missed this, but Kill Bill will be split into two parts, Volumes 1 and 2, hence the part about two parts.

Tarantino said the idea to divide the three-hour martial-arts epic was initially suggested by Miramax honcho Harvey Weinstein after the mogul visited the set in China, where the filmmaker spent more than five grueling months filming his 200-page script.

Miramax's blessing may come as a surprise to those movie-biz folks who refer to Weinstein as "Harvey Scissorhands," a nickname reflecting the studio czar's penchant for forcing directors not only to slash costs on their films but also running times.

But, according to Miramax's cofounder, there are exceptions to the rule.

"Miramax is the house Quentin Tarantino built," Weinstein told the New York Times on Tuesday, adding that the helmer was given "carte blanche."

Miramax is backing the three-hour martial arts epic to the tune of $55 million, excluding marketing costs--a paltry sum compared to most Hollywood blockbusters, but helped by the movie's Chinese location shoot and accommodating actors, many of whom worked for scale.

This will not make both parts cancel each other out at the upcoming Oscars.

Instead, Vol. 1 of Bill, due out on October 10, will qualify for the upcoming Oscars (to be handed out February 29), and it's concluding installment will be a possible contender for the 2004 Academy Awards, giving Miramax and Tarantino a double shot at taking home the golden guy for the kung-fu epic.

I can't wait.

Home at last

I've just been to hell new jersey and back. Went there to drive my friends Jenna and Stacey up there to see some of their Internet/Otakon peeps. Okay, it wasn't bad at all, just had a little trouble finding their damn house, the roads up there suuuuuuck, but it's all good. I crashed up there last night, watched some clerks cartoon and LOTR2, then fell asleep on a bare mattress and woke up around noon or something, about 7 hours of sleep or something...then i woke up and just sat around bullshitting, ya know, just chillin...then I left.

Getting home (and to NJ) was easy, both our houses are pretty close to I-95 and we just had to like stay on it for like 80 miles.

Oh yeah, I FUCKING HATE THUNDERSTORMS! We drove thru godawful weather going there and on the way back. God, I had to slow down to just 5mph on Interstate 95... and I still could hardly see anything...would've pulled over and let it pass, but ya know, I'm glad I didn't, because like a minute after having that thought, some moron jackass fucking cuntbag passed me on the left shoulder. Glad I wasn't just sitting there.

So uh, that's what I've been up to lately, I drove into philly for the first time ever. No longer a philly virgin. That sounded gay.

which reminds me, my new phrase is:

An Eye for an Eye...I guess

This is too weird, so I must share.

The weirdest part:
He lay down to sleep in some pig entrails that had been left there, but was caught by a search party from Panga seeking the men who had stolen the animals.

Pig guts. Opportunistic fuck.

One last question, how does one cut off ankles? Do you reattach the feet afterwards?

How old is the lawmaker's daughter?

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A downtown bar featuring nude dancing has challenged a Missouri law that raises the minimum age for dancers from 18 to 19 years old.

Excuse me, but if Missouri law says that persons under age 18 are minors, than that makes those 18 and older not minors and therfore, how can there be another law that regulates non-minors from stripping? Let me guess, next year it'll be amended from 19 to 20 to coincide with the lawmaker's daughter.

This is just silly. Just plain ol' nutty man. Yup.

Dude, she was 22.

SALEM, MA-August 25, 2003 ó Police in Massachusetts have busted a woman for a bout of yoga in the buff.

Salem police arrested the 22-year-old over the weekend after getting complaints that a naked woman was sunbathing and doing yoga in Minto-Brown Island Park.

A police official says the woman was charged with public indecency and taken to the Marion County jail.

Unless she was incredibly ugly with puss oozing out of every oriface, what's to be offended about? And how young were these "children"?

the mugshot of the lady who said "she was trying to get closer to God". lmao how silly

Seperation of... Whatever?

I don't know what the hell is wrong with this country sometimes. How can I turn on the tv and see this crap in this day and age? What the fuck is wrong with Alabama? Why can't they understand that America respects all religions and nationalizes NONE. There is no national religion. This country was founded mainly to ESCAPE national religion.

The mindset of these people is more dangerous to America than terrorists ever could be. Terrorists wanted this to happen. Do you think that they just wanted to kill 3000 people in New York City? That's just a fucking number to them. Terrorists attacked us because they don't like our way of life (I know, no surprise there) but we aren't supposed to just sacrifice our freedoms. As the old cliche goes, "or the terrorists will win".

Again, the "Seperation of Church and State" clause in the constitution of the United States of America is practically the soul reason people up and left that other place on the other side of the big ocean.

But you know what? Alabama isn't wrong. The 13 federal judges are actually wrong. Not morally, they are correct in those terms, and not even by the consitution, they are wrong in that every oath of office get's innaguerated by swearing to serve with honor to the Holy fucking Bible. When did that become okay? Who died and made Christianity the national relgion?

Of course, I guess those federal judges aren't wrong; their job is to uphold the constitution, not to prevent themselves from looking hypocritical. And the Chief Justice in Alabama is acting like a fucking child who can't take no for answer. He has made a mockery of the constituition. He has not honored the decision by the higher court. This fact alone should make him go to federal pound-me-in-the-ass-prison. A few months ago, my friend lost a peace order case and if she violates that District court's Judge's decision, she can be sent to prison for contempt of court. How is this different from what the Chief Justice is doing?

Answer: It's not.

The real question? Why hasn't the federal court arrested this fool for contempt of court yet?

Seems like a clear cut case to me.

Damn Rednecks...

Latest news reports advise that a cell of 4 terrorists has been operating in West Virginia. Police advise earlier today that 3 of the 4 have been detained.

The West Virginia State Police stated that the terrorists Bin Loafin, Bin Drinkin, and Bin Fightin have been arrested on immigration issues.

The Police advise further that they can find no one fitting the description of the fourth cell member, Bin Workin, in the state. Police are confident that anyone who looks like Workin will be very easy to spot in the community.

via this site, I just kinda stumbled across it, don't ask.

A federal judge on Friday denied Fox News Channel's request for an injunction to block liberal humorist Al Franken's new book.

Franken, reached by telephone immediately after the ruling, called the ruling a victory for the First Amendment and satirists everywhere -- "even bad satirists."

He also said he was grateful for the publicity generated by the suit. Publisher Penguin Group added 50,000 copies to the original run of 270,000 after Fox filed suit, and rolled out the book Thursday instead of its planned September release date.

"In addition to thanking my own lawyers," Franken said, "I'd like to thank Fox's lawyers for filing one of the stupidest briefs I've ever seen in my life." On Friday, the book was listed at No. 2 on's bestseller list, behind "The South Beach Diet."

I am so relieved and my faith in the Justice system in this country just jumped from a negative -666 to a -560, I just pulled those numbers out of my ass, so.... don't touch them.

Issues with an iPod

ISSUE: Transfering music from one iTunes to another iTunes.
PROBLEM: Two macs aka two iTunes music libraries cannot share music via the iPod.

Yes, when I plug my iPod to my other mac to get songs off that, the only option I have is to erase all the songs on the iPod to put the other mac's library on it. I do that, then go to export those few songs to my mac, and I get the same message about replacing the music library on my iPod.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!! I just want to export a few songs from one of my macs to my main mac!!! There has to be a way!!!

This is pissing me off, if you know what to do, please contact me.

Recall Bush

Forget Gray or Arnold, Recall George.

Dem are fightin' words!

"'neither a journalist nor a television news personality. He is not a well-respected voice in American politics; rather, he appears to be shrill and unstable. His views lack any serious depth or insight.'" --Foxnews about Al Franken

Franken responds with...

"'I normally prefer not to be out of the country on vacation when I'm sued. However, from everything I know about law regarding satire, I'm not worried..'"


"'As far as the personal attacks go,' Franken responded, 'when I read 'intoxicated or deranged' and 'shrill and unstable' in their complaint, I thought for a moment I was a Fox commentator.'"

But wait, there's more.

"'And by the way, a few months ago, I trademarked the word 'funny.' So when Fox calls me 'unfunny,' they're violating my trademark. I am seriously considering a countersuit.'"

Al Franken is my newest hero.

Mac OS X for Dummies?

Yeah, WTF? I was in borders tonight and browsin thru the computers/internet section and there's a "for Dummies" book for Mac OS X. Come on. How more intuitive does Jobs need to make it? If you can't sit down, turn it on and figure everything out by using it, then you shouldn't be using computers at all. I mean, if you can't figure out Linux, big whoop, but OS X? You're either 3 or 83.

Yet Another Reason To Buy a Mac

A fast-spreading Internet worm detected Monday afternoon is infecting thousands of computers worldwide and is expected to cause headaches for business and home users running the Microsoft Windows operating system.

"Fair and Balanced" is owned by Foxnews


Foxnews is suing Al Franken because he used the term "Fair and Balanced" in his book.

I don't think it's fair and balanced for a tabloid to be suppressing opinions, afterall, that's what tabloids are all about, right? Write a bunch of shit that's just opinions about people's lives. That's what this tabloid does.

''The attempt to keep the public from reading Franken's message is un-American,'' she said.

I guess Oliver said it best, "Fair And Balanced! Fair And Balanced! I Said: FAIR AND BALANCED!"

Sweet Jumpin Pancake Al!

Rumors have it that...

By all accounts, Panther will indeed be complete in a matter of 4-6 weeks and although there is no fixed ship date yet -- one will not be determined until a Golden Master is selected -- most sources point to a release date in mid-October.

Eight Legged Freaks

I missed the first 30 minutes but I don't think it really mattered in a movie about giant arachnids. The acting, plot and story are attrocious. I am glad I didn't see this in the theater. The only bright side are a few one-liners that black guy from Cool Runnings and that show on cbs which also starred Bill Cosby. What's his name again? Anyhoo, that actor (whoever he is) and the phrase "arachattack!" are the only redeeming qualities to this peice of fucking shit of a film.

Recalling elections? That's so 2000.

The republicans are a bunch of whining crybabies when it comes to elections. Hey morons, the people of California voted for Gray Davis to be their leader, there's no do-overs!

I mean, if there was some fraudelant voting going on like 2000 jews voting for pat buchanon or a hanging chad, then contest the election all you want, but face the facts: Gray Davis was elected and deserves to finish his term in office. He's not a Ford vehicle. And if by some chance, Davis is recalled, then we should recall Bush. Hey, the republicans are setting a nice precedant here.

Republicians are such cry babies...for the love of allah, GET OVER IT!!!!!

Legalize ALL Drugs

When alcohol ceased being prohibited, crime dropped substanially because the black market for booze was moot, people could get it anywhere. It's silly to waste money punishing people for smoking pot or abusing some other drug. Hey, I got news for you, ANYTHING can kill you if you overindulge in it. ANYTHING. Look at all the fat kids that are around today. They sit on their ass and do nothing except munch on junk. Juvenile diabetes has skyrocketed. I don't feel like looking it up, so go ahead make my day. Millions and billions of dollars are being used to lock up nonviolent people simply because they possessed a plant that grows naturally on the Earth. I could think of a million better ways to spend that money.

Legalize all drugs. Let Big Pot compete with Big Tobacco, let the FDA regulate heroin and other currently illegal substances. That way people can get the methadone treatment they need without fearing for their freedom.

You would think conservatives would be for this, as it makes government smaller (hence their party name), but nobody dares come close to this side of the issue.

People have the right to do whatever they want to their bodies. Yes, they still shouldn't drive high or drunk, as that effects other people, but arresting people for smoking a joint in their fucking private residence? That's un-American.

Rack me, I'm out.
