Calm as Hindu Gerbils

In case you guys missed this, it seems that the country of India as a whole is all mad at Richard Gere. Which is very happy-making for us Instant Talkers. The rapture hit dangerous highs once we successfully married this "news" to a photo of a Richard Gere "look-a-like" from Google.

Hooray for the internets!

A Quote...

Here is a quote from my new favorite blogger, fashion maven Gregory Littley:

"Nick Scoullar is like Conan O'Brien, but hipper, funnier and younger. So I guess that makes him better"

I'd say this guy is on to something. Check out for future Nick Scoullar praise, and assorted "other" items.

Comedy 101

Just from a scientific point of view, WHY IS THIS SO FUNNY?

Possible reasons:

1. Excessive use of "vagina" and "penis".

2. Crazy accents that don't make sense.

3. Insane people.

4. White people being SO white.

5. Cute dogs vs. genitals.

2. Keith Richards snorted some of his fathers ashes!

other shockers "revealed":

3. A man in Hartford, CT finds cheese fries delicious!

4. A bear in yellow stone park made a growling sound some time last week!



also, I really also like this song also:

on a related note... has anyone realized how many puncuation/quotation marks are necessary to convey sarcasm though typing?

Sega has always kept it real. Next time some eight year old owns you on Halo 2, challenge him to some Afterburner, and see if that won't make his rat tail stand on edge. Getting schooled by the pep squad at DDR? Pop in Moonwalker, and see who has the REALEST rhythms, BITCHES! Point is, Sega doesn't want you to grow up, but they don't really mind if you're already forty five. Case in point? Nights, baby.

Nights: Into Dreams was the best game you never heard of. This game probably would have gotten your Grandma into games, if not for the dismal failure of the Saturn (which in turn was begat by the dismal failure of the 32X, which was a rehash of the failure of the Sega CD, which was an offshoot of the failure of the Genesis, which was the son-of-the-living-failure of the Sega Master System). Launched on an already-defunct-as-a-doornail system, Nights put you in control of Nights, a flying purple imp who invaded the dreams of children out of boredom and/or for personal gain.

Besides being the first game with an integrated analog control scheme (WHOOOOO! DROKS!!!), Nights was also a completely G-rated take on A Nightmare On Elm Street. Perhaps the strangest choice in mascot since Bonk The Child Molester, Nights was a swan song for a company with a "Best of" collection of Swan Songs. With a sequel for the game now confirmed for launch on the Wii in the Fall, it looks like your Grandma may in fact feel like flying. Despite most of the industry insisting that the Wii will deliver on a promise Nintendo made to us with The Power Pad some thirteen years ago, I remain unsure as to the future reception of our beloved imp-thing, Nights. As someone who has fallen for Sega's shiny charms again and again ("I wish I could quit you!"), I have no doubt that die-hard nerds will be bowled over by Nights' reemergence, which will in turn will be ignored by the money-having public.

So, for lack of a better conclusion, here's where I'm going with this: Sega has always been happy to sacrifice sales figures in exchange for putting out some of the weirdest fucking "games" ever seen. Space Channel 5. INXS: Making The Video. De-Cap Attack. Sega is like the corporate equivalent of that clumsy waiter from Sesame Street. Time and time again, they'd rather take a face-first dive down a flight of stairs than leave any wanting for "FIVE BANANA FLAMBES!"

Now gimme all your quarters and get the fuck out.

So we're all hanging around, discussing the potential of a Watchmen movie. If you don't know Watchmen... I don't know what to tell you then, it's one of the best comic books ever. Duh. So this chunk of awesomeness has been stuck in hollywood development hell for like, 20 years now. All kinds of directors have been attatched to make it. Most recently Paul Greengrass of "Bourne Supremacy" fame was linked to it, but it was abandoned. Then, last week, news comes that "300" director Zack Snyder is giving it a go. Controversy at the Instant Talk Show Clubhouse ensuses:

Me : That's bullshit.

DB: It's one of those movies that just shouldn't be made.

FM: HBO Miniseries, dudes!

A: Harmony Korine should direct it.

HG: Yeah, yeah, I could see that.

Me: WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!? That's RIDICULOUS! Fucking Martin Scorsese or P.T. Anderson or Robert Altman's CORPSE! Someone who knows big casts and epic stories!

JB sits down.

Me: Hey, who do you think should direct the Watchmen movie.



JB: David Fincher.


Looks around the room, mouths are agape.

Me: This is the answer we have been looking for. No further discussion is needed on the matter. Thank you, JB.

And that, is that.
