Oh for fuck's sake. The two things I planned to do tonight: get a bunch of Watch Dogs' online hacking done before sending it back to Gamefly tomorrow (sweet mother of crap, that mode is addictive. Finding the perfect hiding place, and having the hackee actually bump right into you unknowingly while searching... so much fun. The ensuing chase if/when you get caught is a blast, too) and play Diablo 3 while listening to some podcasts.

They are both back up now.

Oh, awesome! Cheers.

Anyways, I'm also gonna say that I've always thought Jenny was pretty cute, but would it be odd to say that she's also always reminded me of a female John Drake?

If this sentence ends up ruining my nerd-crush on Clara, you, sir, will receive a stern yet polite admonishment!

I wasn't in love with this one, but Capaldi's great, and the steampunk look was extremely enjoyable. And yeah, that new intro... absolutely awesome.

What was with the cartoon sound effect as a punchline to the "hit you like a piano" gag, though? I'm all for the silly side of the show, but... really? That and the electronic lock sound on the carriage both felt extremely out of place.

@roninenix: Nothing GB related, but Vinny's wife has another baby due next week.

Congrats Vinny!

Whoa, what?

Congrats, Vinny "Two Pens Kids" Caravella!

Surprisingly, Chumbawamba. Turns out they were much better than "Tubthumping". I always liked "Pass It Along", but I finally started exploring their other music, and I'm actually liking it quite a bit. Even the stuff from their apparently "lesser" albums.

GTA 1&2 HD.

I joke, but I would be very into a remake or even just an HD-ified GTA 1.

Definitely. Dude's been on fire.

Although I do wish Patrick was there to help Brad defend horror this week. That could have been amazing. Anti-Yoshi? Sure, go for it. Anti-horror? I'ma have to have some words, MISTER Gerstmann!

Meet The Feebles

I have to rate this on two levels:

Entertainment: 10 out of 10

Quality as a movie: 2 or 3/10

I'm a big fan of splatter-era Peter Jackson. But somehow, I had never seen his infamous Meet The Feebles. Basically, it's the Muppets if the Muppets were created by John Waters. It's grotesque, violent, and filled with various debaucheries, the likes of which I shouldn't even describe here. Suffice to say: It's fucked. Unfortunately, the vast majority of the movie is just a bunch of interwoven stories about the various Feebles and their horrid actions, with no real purpose to it all other than to shock viewers.

On the bright side, it does earn a few legitimate laughs, and it *looks* great. Seriously, they did an awesome job on the puppets and costumes. The music is pretty decent as well (even when its a tribute to sodomy) and will likely get stuck in your head. It's hard to rate the gore effects, because... puppets..., but they're certainly memorable.

In short: Terrible movie, loved watching it, would heartily recommend to those with strong stomachs and an appreciation for trash cinema. If nothing else, see it just to say "This fucking guy made the LOTR movies?".
