Obviously this is a joke, and thankfully it looks like the real proposed remake is now dead. I learned this (and found the video) on this superbly named Irish film blog.
“Either you eat life or life eats you.” So said one of the Tahitians in the 1962 version of Mutiny On The Bounty. It reminds me a little of Sam Elliott’s sage adage in The Big Lebowski that “sometimes you drink the bar, and well, sometimes the bar, it drinks you.” I’d almost be motivated [...]
Dresden Dolls- Night Reconnaissance- UNCENSORED I’ve posted this before and I’ll no doubt post it again because it’s a great song and I love the video.
I’m sick and tired of reading about ‘militant’ atheists. I’ve never heard of atheists trying to advance their goals through violence, but ardent atheists are almost always yoked with this adjective, even when they receive largely favourable press coverage, as in this Economist article. Needless to say, there are plenty of religions out there with [...]
How on earth is Zlatan Ibrahimović worth €45 million plus Samuel Eto’o? I just can’t understand it. Eto’o has a better goal scoring record, he’s only a year older than Ibrahimović, and he can sometimes make a contribution in big matches, which is something I’ve never seen Ibrahimović do. Sure, Eto’o is reputed to have [...]
Ahem. I may have previously given the indication that I do not think very much of the Oxegen festival, and I may even have rattled out a few angry paragraphs before about how Trent’s decision to play at it is a slap in the face to all Irish NIN fans. However, I now fully recognise [...]
It is going to take something very special for me to ever feel happier than I did on Wednesday night. Nine Inch Nails played for a full two hours, and they ran through some excellent old material that I wasn’t expecting. I only wish that I drank a bit less as my memory is a [...]
She’s resigned the governorship of Alaska, and the word is that she’s planning on staying out of politics for good. She never struck me as being particularly evil, but she did seem particularly uninformed and just way out of her depth on the national stage, so I hope this for real, and not some hairbrained [...]
Here’s a smattering of BBC News readers’ opinions about an Indian court’s decision to decriminalise gay sex. For every sensible “good for India” comment there seems to be a comment along the lines of “homosexuality is an abomination forbidden by God”. Defenders of religion are fond of claiming that religious values promote things like treating [...]
Give me some comments, and give me them soon. I have to swiftpost this biatch sometime this morning, after I crawl back out of bed. Statement of Purpose I am applying to this MA program so that I can resume studying philosophy after a disastrous year of medical school. I always enjoyed philosophy as an [...]
