Paramount kills Team America: World Police

http://insidemovies.ew.com/2014/12/18/team-america-world-police-screenings-canceled/

Given that the makers of this movie are the guys behind South Park, it seems only fitting that they are trying to capitalize on the revolutionary Cartmanland Marketing System:

“I’m sorry, you can’t see this movie!  Nobody can see this movie!  Even I can’t see this movie!”

Congratulations to North Korea on securing some of the prophet Mohammed’s special goo.

QOTD 31: Trust da Police!

Do you trust the police?

As a white guy in suburbia, I really have *thank goodness* no reason to not trust the police, and am generally respectful / appropriately fearful of their presence. Heck, I don’t even smoke <Redacted> on my front porch because I figure it’s just a way to irk an officer who’d rather not be bothered. I’m typically polite, and throw out more Sirs than a bad “Wii Tennis” player whenever I get pulled over (which has happened…once).

At the same time, I understand not everyone is me. So if you’re someone who has had bad run-ins with the 5-0, feel free to share.

Food for thought: The Rampart Division in LA is an absolutely NUTS story if you never heard about it. Essentially this group of rogue cops managed to make money for themselves hand-over-foot, AND keep crime in LA in check at the same time,

Food for thought 2:  Tucker Max of all people wrote this pretty good piece on how to deal with ‘The Fuzz’ it’s pretty insightful

Blog Otter Award: wnyxmcneal for a joke I didn’t quite get until this morning.

1. Does anyone else think CAPS_LOCK_MAN looks like this guy?

2. Did uh…did one of you go through every single one of my comments yesterday and down vote them? Cause every single one of my comments has a single down vote. I appreciate the effort!

3. I’ve been playing Card Hunter. It’s an online Table-top RPG / CCG kind of thing. It’s totally free and a real blast if you like Final Fantasy Tactics / Warhammer
