Snopes? Where We're Going, We Don't Need Snopes.

  • The Monologue:
    • JaMarcus Russell was arrested for possession of codeine syrup, the main ingredient in something I just learned about called Purple Drank. We never knew that those Sunny Delight commercials were a "Just Say No" spot.
    • You think the Smurfs teaser trailer (I'm not linking to it) looks bad? How about this picture of Hank Azaria as Gargamel?
    • It's hot outside this week. How hot is it, you ask? It's so hot that Satan got confused and now he won't get off my lawn.
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • You may have seen a bunch of people write on Twitter or Facebook today that July 5, 2010 is the date in Back To The Future to which Doc Brown set the DeLorean when he was talking about the future. This is the dumbest urban legend ever. A) He never set the date, he just mentioned going twenty-five years into the future and then the Libyans came. B) The movie takes place in October, so it wouldn't make much sense for him to set the clock to July, anyway.
    • Into the second season of Breaking Bad now and the show is really frustrating. Not the quality -- it's absolutely tremendous -- it's frustrating because they end all of the episodes with a cliffhanger, which is going to seriously threaten my sleep time.
  • Revisiting The Classics: The Godfather
    • I went to see The Godfather on the big screen today at the AFI Silver. It is the greatest movie of all time. Every single second is 100% perfect. See why it's more fun to review bad movies?
