“The Bene Gesserit Witch Must Leave!”

Dune – Navigator Scene Redone

A lot of Dune fans were a little disappointed that the new Dune DVD had a few problems. The audio in the beginning was very off-synch, and some words were obviously dubbed over.

I decided to fix the scene in the beginning with the Emperor and the Navigator, (althouh sketchy between the two versions of footage) to show fans how it should have gone.

I love the Internet!

This is the future, so pay attention.

At some point the studios will release everything onto the Net. Taking Dune as an example, they will release all footage, all sound tracks, everything. You will be able to Build Your Own Dune.

And it will be like that for every movie that has unused footage.

Ralph Nader’s Big Birthday

February 28, 2008


Now, just a word of thanks.

Late Monday, we put out a call for donations to the campaign in honor of Ralph’s birthday.

We said that over the course of two days, we wanted to raise $50,000 from 500 of you.

And you came through with flying colors – we raised $56,663.32 from 767 of you.

Thank you for your dedication and generosity.

We printed all of your names out, included them in a giant birthday card, and presented it tonight to Ralph.

Happy Birthday Ralph!

What was raised for Nader isn’t even considered a rounding error by the three stooges mainstream sellouts corporate tools other candidates.

Nader picks running mate

(CNN) – Ralph Nader has selected a former San Francisco city official as his running mate in the presidential race.

Exxon Can’t Hide

February 28, 2008

Exxon suxx. McCain duxx.

Nineteen goddamn years is enough. I’m sorry if you don’t like my language, but when I think about what they did to Paul Kompkoff, I’m in no mood to nicey-nice words.

Next month marks 19 years since the Exxon Valdez dumped its load of crude oil across the Prince William Sound, Alaska. A big gooeysmallalaksaoil.jpg load of this crude spilled over the lands of the Chenega Natives. Paul Kompkoff was a seal-hunter for the village. That is, until Exxon’s ship killed the seal and poisoned the rest of Chenega’s food supply.

While cameras rolled, Exxon executives promised they’d compensate everyone. Today, before the US Supreme Court, the big oil company’s lawyers argued that they shouldn’t have to pay Paul or other fishermen the damages ordered by the courts.

They can’t pay Paul anyway. He’s dead.

That was part of Exxon’s plan. They told me that. In 1990 and 1991, I worked for the Chenega and Chugach Natives of Alaska on trying to get Exxon to pay up to save the remote villages of the Sound. Exxon’s response was, “We can hold out in court until you’re all dead.”

Emphasis added by me.

A New Episode Of Space Hospital!

February 28, 2008

I really needed something funny after the three previous posts today. I went a-Googling and found Space Hospital on YouTube!

Here’s an episode that doesn’t appear on Stage6, put up two weeks ago!

And, hallejulah! They are also already on Veoh! They also have a MySpace page. I hold accounts on both of those, so now I can contact them. It doesn’t seem they have a website or blog.

Oh My God, The Irony

If you read it fast (not mentally installing the obvious periods for “U.S.,”) it actually sounds like something he might have said: “Us is not…”

This from the man who gave us “Grecians” and “Put food on your family.”

I was in a waiting room while he was on TV. Closed-captioning was active.

My hair stood on end when he found the idea of $4/gallon gasoline incredible. “Well, I haven’t heard that,” I believe he said.

And that graphic? It’s from the Murdoch-owned Ra-Ra-Right Wing New York Post!

Now you know if they’re dumbfounded, we’re in deeper trouble than we imagined.

Update: Yeah, here’s that exchange about gas prices:

On one issue particularly worrisome to American consumers, there are indications that paying $4 for a gallon of gasoline is not out of the question once the summer driving season arrives. Asked about that, Bush said “That’s interesting. I hadn’t heard that. … I know it’s high now.”

I reiterate: Oh. My. God.

Long Island man killed girlfriend’s cat, wounded another, police say

A Long Island construction worker beat and squeezed his girlfriend’s two beloved cats – one to death – when they refused to play with him, cops said Tuesday.

The vicious attack by David Wrigley, 24, broke the sternum and every rib of his live-in lover’s 8-year-old tabby, Madeline. The other cat, a plump black kitty named Jynx, survived despite 13 broken ribs.

In a world under my rule, this guy would be dead. Right now.

(Yes, I know I’m voting for Nader and he would disagree. And your point is?)
