Links With Your Coffee


  • Gas-Mask Bra, Tequila Diamonds Among 2009 Ig Nobels

  • Nadir Of Western Civilization To Be Reached This Friday At 3:32 P.M.
    WASHINGTON—An international panel of leading anthropologists, cultural critics, biologists, and social theorists announced this week that Western civilization will reach its lowest conceivable point at 3:32 p.m. Friday.

  • Carl Sagan a glorious dose of dawn! (thanks Max)

    Most of you have probably already seen this, but if not it's worth your time.

  • Morally Offensive ( I take that as a recommendation)
    Gervais, who co-wrote and co-directed with Matthew Robinson, launches an all-out, sneering assault on the foundations of religious faith such as has seldom if ever been seen in a mainstream film, despicably belittling core Judeo-Christian beliefs. Not only Catholics but believers of every stripe and, indeed, people of good will generally will be well-advised to shun this calculated cinematic insult.

  • Mr. Diety and the Evil



    re: trip-hop sagan-

    "the sky calls to us". can you support that with facts, professor, or are you just wasting our time?

    jk, this is really well done and i like it. but it does seem like "a little religion for the atheists". you guys could use some of that, you sound kinda dried up sometimes. :) like, just relax and groove with the bigness, yo.

    thanks for the mr. deity headsup again.

    I've got to agree, Jon (even though I know you're half joking). For lack of a better word, "spirituality" shouldn't be limited to the religious. That's why I love Carl Sagan. He was the first scientist to show me that the elegance of the universe is much more awe inspiring and beautiful than the belief in a singular deity creating everything.

    That video is one of my Youtube favorites.

    i know it's not really proper trip-hop btw, so i don't wanna hear it. let's not talk about dance music, i'll kick yr dried up asses. :)

    Damn now I have to see The Invention of Lying! That was a glowing review. I had no idea Gervais went there with the movie, although it it obvious if you think about it. Didn't read it all though, there's some spoilers. They should've given the RD award to Ricky.

    I just saw it at a film festival and while the premise is wonderful - I hate to say it's a rather half-arsed film. It feels like a first draft they were too lazy to work on and the film itself is a few great moments trudging through a messy and convoluted story. It's much better than "Year One", but not nearly as good as it should have been given Gervais's talents and the potential of the subject matter.

    My personal recommendation is go in with low expectations and you'll have a great time. Well worth supporting a film that skewers the whole notion of belief.

    Thanks. I liked Ghost Town though. That ought to be enough...

    me too! i certainly trust stupidgit's movie instincts, he makes them after all. but gervais is always worth watching.

    am i admitting to cultural retardation if i say i loved "ghost town" too?

    That's cool, but anyone else notice the autotune makes Sagan sound just a tad like Kermit the Frog?

    If Mr Deity really IS the all-powerful, etc, etc --- why does he have to wear glasses?

    It's just for the look.

    Doesn't that make it harder for you to believe in him?

    LOL - thanks of the link NOrm.
