I don't know what's sicker, the fact this clown gets conjugal visits, or the fact he was able to find a broad willing to show up for them. He should be strapped to a chair like Alex in A Clockwork Orange and be forced to listen to Yoko's discography until his head explodes. I'd let Manson out before this guy.

Awhile back they made like George Lucas and spruced it up with additional footage and effects. Sometimes that kind of shit sticks out like a sore thumb, but not here. It all fits in where it should and makes the movie even better. It's hard to imagine that "spider walk" bit wasn't in it from the start.
The book ain't bad either, but, like The Godfather, the film has kind of turned it into a footnote.

Who the hell watches this crap? No matter how loaded I might be at 1:00 AM, I'm not going to sit there and watch some guy try and sell me an orange juice maker.

The recession has even hit The Empire. Being an evil intergalactic despot just doesn't pay like it used to. Maybe that's why Darth Vader was spotted robbing banks in Long Island recently.Looks like the poor guy even had to hock his light saber. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5g0hvVXEPntkcVKutYw8nWBtm-XQgD9H4UL9O0

One thing everyone seems to agree on though is whoever died that night didn't have a chance. There was no attempt to take him alive. The saw him, and they shot him. None of this "Stop or we'll shoot stuff."
The only federal warrant on this guy was for taking a stolen car across state lines. He had never been convicted of a murder, and had only been accused of one, shooting a cop in self defense. Most witness were unsure if it even was Dillinger who was the one who shot the cop, or even if he was there at all that day. Most witnesses also claimed whoever it was who killed that cop had returned fire, but had aimed low.
Dillinger was a bank robber who put people in danger with his antics, and hung out with murderers, but he never shot a man in the back, something "the good guys" didn't hesitate to do on the night of July 22, 1934.

Most people assumed it was his old pal Dutch Schultz who finally found some bullets that wouldn't bounce off of Legs, but there are rumors it may not have been the Dutchman, or anyone else in the rackets. In 1974, author William Kennedy quoted Albany Democratic party boss Dan O’Connell as saying that he sent Albany police to execute Diamond. Seems this guy had a low tolerance for guys like Legs and wasn't worried about things like laws when it came to keeping his town racket free. Or maybe he just didn't want any competition. Either way Dutch was pleased.

Mickey Spillane! I never met the guy, but I'm sure we would have hit it off. This guy could churn out the yarns! His Mike Hammer novels are great, but my favorite was one called The Long Wait. When ever I wasn't busy greasing the hand rails in the handicapped stall at the truck stop, or pissing in the gold fish tank at Walmart, I would be often perusing one of Mickey's fine tomes. Rest In Peace, pal!

I was tooling around the city in my Bunnymobile yesterday, when I decided to drive past the spot where Alvin Karpis got nabbed by the Feds. Not much to see there, so it was off to look up Oswald's old digs over on Magazine, and then back down Canal to Metarie to drive by Carlos Marcello's house.
A lot of shit went on down here, but I suppose our big claim to fame, crime-wise, would be that this was the place where the plot to hit Kennedy was hatched. Sure, I know the Warren Commission claimed Oswald acted alone, but that same report also said Carlos Marcello was just an innocent tomato salesman.
I ended my tour back in the French Quarter on Bourbon. Right there above the Voodoo shop is the place where a guy killed his girlfriend and ate her. Gotta love this town!

They just released a photo of the new Green Lantern Costume from the new movie. He's got the mask and the big funky lantern symbol on his chest, but I don't remember Green Lantern having all those glowing lines stuck all over him. And what's that shit made of? He looks like he's wearing a rubber muscle suit. In the comics it always looked like the super guys painted their suits on. In the movies they look like they bought a hot glue gun from the craft store and tried to turn themselves into an after school project. Spider-Man now has rubber webs stuck on his costume instead of black painted lines, and even Superman is going around with a big "S" plaque glued to his chest. It's a good thing these guys have super powers. With every design element of their costumes being 3-D,they wouldn't be able to move otherwise.

This book pretty much covers it all. The Bibliography alone is worth the price of admission.

Truth is, if you're broke you don't have the means to pursue your dreams, unless your dream is to sit under the overpass with a cardboard sign and a bag of butts you collected off the parking lot. If you have a job you just might be even worse off, having a roof over you while you sleep, but not much, not even time.
You could get arrested. Then you'd have a roof over your head and plenty of time to pump iron and read books about accounting and shit.
So, find some way to get enough green to buy some dope and booze ( stealing it works best) and don't worry about any of that "getting a head" crap they pump you full of in school.

So, what the fuck has been going on in Bunnyland? Not fucking much! Things used to be more fucking exciting. Back in the 20s and 30s it was all about gang wars and whores. The 40s kinda dragged, but in the 50s we had hot rods and freaky beatnik chicks. The 60s were just chock full of drugs and "free love."Except for muscle cars and punk, the 70s sucked, and the 80s were total shit. From then on it's all been down hill. I FUCKING WANT SOME FUCKING EXCITEMENT!!!!!! Most of the "musicians" out today sound like fag versions of Pat Boone, and television has gone from shitty shows to shitty hour long commercials. And what about drugs? Does anybody even try to come up with anything that does something new?
There is one ray of light though. They call it The Human Centipede! Reminds me of some parties I've been to!
