Religulous

without comments

Religion is a sensitive subject for a lot of people, so let’s be careful with this movie, but let me be the first to say that this documentary looks phenomenal. Religulous is a documentary simply looking at Bill Maher’s take on the current state of world religion. It’s a very interesting subject to focus on, especially at this rather important time in America’s history. And I’ll be damned if this trailer isn’t amazingly well put together! It’s the perfect tease to get you completely interested in what Bill Maher has in store for us with Religulous. You don’t want to miss this trailer!

Very cool, there’s a series of these animated using lego characters. “Cake or Death” is very good also.

Expelled!

without comments

This is golden!

There is a rich, deep kind of irony that must be shared. I’m blogging this from the Apple store in the Mall of America, because I’m too amused to want to wait until I get back to my hotel room.

I went to attend a screening of the creationist propaganda movie, Expelled, a few minutes ago. Well, I tried … but I was Expelled! It was kind of weird — I was standing in line, hadn’t even gotten to the point where I had to sign in and show ID, and a policeman pulled me out of line and told me I could not go in. I asked why, of course, and he said that a producer of the film had specifically instructed him that I was not to be allowed to attend. The officer also told me that if I tried to go in, I would be arrested. I assured him that I wasn’t going to cause any trouble.

I went back to my family and talked with them for a while, and then the officer came back with a theater manager, and I was told that not only wasn’t I allowed in, but I had to leave the premises immediately. Like right that instant.

I complied.

I’m still laughing though. You don’t know how hilarious this is. Not only is it the extreme hypocrisy of being expelled from their Expelled movie, but there’s another layer of amusement. Deep, belly laugh funny. Yeah, I’d be rolling around on the floor right now, if I weren’t so dang dignified.

You see … well, have you ever heard of a sabot? It’s a kind of sleeve or lightweight carrier used to surround a piece of munition fired from a gun. It isn’t the actually load intended to strike the target, but may even be discarded as it leaves the barrel.

I’m a kind of sabot right now.

They singled me out and evicted me, but they didn’t notice my guest. They let him go in escorted by my wife and daughter. I guess they didn’t recognize him. My guest was …

Richard Dawkins.

Here endeth the Mo

with one comment

Being the last day of Movember, today is the last day that Mo’s are socially acceptable. Of course if you’re attending the Ashes in Adelaide you’re expected to go fully tached, Booney style. Thanks to everyone who donated money, I’ve raised around $250.

Tom Movember - Week 4

I leave you with one final thought, “The Mo maketh the Man”.

Llamas are bigger than frogs

without comments

I’ve been looking for this for years, and of course YouTube has it.

The llama is a quarduped which lives in lives big rivers like the Amazon.

It has two ears, a heart, a forehead, and a beak for eating honey.
It is also provided with fins for swimming.

Llamas are bigger than frogs.

Llamas are however, very dangerous. If you see one where people are swimming,
you must shout out “LOOK OUT, THERE ARE LLAMAS!”

See the original footage.
