Posted by on Oct 28, 2012 in Culture, Humor, Movies | No Comments

McSweeney pens a hilarious letter from the chairman of the Committee on Promotion and Tenure at Marshall College outlining the many reasons why they have denied Henry “Indiana” Jones Jr. tenure. Though the committee may have overstepped the boundaries of its evaluation, I find it pertinent to note that Dr. Jones has been romantically linked to countless women of […]

The March 1979 issue of The Atlantic contained this amazing profile of George Lucas, who at the time was only a couple  years removed from releasing Star Wars. Star Wars was manufactured.

Stunning, Trippy Animated Short

This is the fourth in a series of beautifully-animated short films called “Bendito Machine,” or blessed machine. Created in Spain, but packed with imagery that appears to be drawn from native Mexican traditions, this is a world that’s as weird as anything in classic SF mind-twister Fantastic Planet. Plus, it’s a whimsical satire of humanity’s obsession […]

I can’t wait to see this. I love the start to the trailer: Just cause I am telling you this story doesn’t mean I am alive at the end of it. It is that kind of story … where things just got so out of control.
