Disco-hating dickheads.

As the world's biggest Kate Upton probably already saw this?

Yeah, I guess, but I don't masturbate to Kate anymore, she's too mainstream.

There's this new chick I'm masturbating to.  I'd tell you her name but you probably haven't heard of her yet.

I was masturbating to Kate Upton before it was cool to masturbate to Kate Upton.

I found him on Facebook, but he's got his access set to "friends only."  But here's his profile pic, at least:

Shame about his hairline.   :-\

You can come in at any point in Head and go WTF???!!! Its basically a series of skits with no relation to one another. Its kind of like the one the Beetles made around the same time.

Well, they were a major influence on The Beatles.

Jar Jarbonite.

Star Wars Kinect has been pushed to 2012.

Kinect Star Wars Bundle & Game being released April 3rd

$450 for the bundle.  Yeowch.  Hopefully they'll release that controller separately.

And if you ever wanted to dance with the Dark Lord, the game now includes a super-sweet dance mode:

· New Galactic Dance Off mode loaded with Star Wars-themed pop tunes where those still honing their Jedi skills can take a break to battle Darth Vader on the dance floor or bust a move “Solo style.”

You'll shoot your eye out.

Reminds me of a movie.  Can't quite put a finger on it  Seems strangely seasonal.  :-X

You're thinking of The Godfather.

But I wouldn't really consider it a Christmas movie, per se, so I don't know where you're getting that from.

Google News doesn't mention anything.  Sure it's not one of those Norm MacDonald fake stories?

Sir, I would never knowingly post false news of a celebrity dying.

I, for one, think that the 90 minutes of spoofs more than make up for the lack of those boring old documentaries.

No, it's Depeche Mode.  And yes, they all died in a plane crash in the Alps last night.

Good point, name.  I'd forgotten his "." phase...  What a fucko.

Was it a phase, or was it just his unique way of rage-quitting the boards after everybody made fun of his definition of "tumbleweed?"

(It's too bad the GH forums have **** the bed, by the way.)

I have a newfound appreciation for the way JD handles the boards for the older lines after looking at this:

Seriously, Pappy, make that older **** collapsible already.

(P.S. I still miss you, Sergiu.  :-[

Could that return be affected though, by the fact that these movies just needed tweaking compared to full production?  Or is it sill going to be super expensive to try?

This article indicates that 2-D to 3-D conversions usually cost around a million dollars or less:

How Do You Convert a Flat Movie Into 3-D?

And this was from the article I posted earlier:

If you ask the medium's most dedicated evangelists what's wrong with 3-D, they'll point to the shoddy, post-production upgrades that flooded the market after Avatar. "It was just being applied liked a layer, purely for profit motive," said James Cameron, who rates the quality of 3-D in dimensional fractions, 2.2-D or 2.5-D. According to this theory, high-end, "real" 3-D sells itself, while the crappy, cash-in conversions—the "fake" 3-D—destroys the brand.

Again, there's some supporting evidence. Using information gleaned from, it's possible to compare box-office numbers from converted and native 3-D films: Since 2010, "real" films have an average ratio of 1.00, meaning they earn about the same amount from 3-D and 2-D on a per-theater basis. The "fake" films from that period had an average ratio of 0.87, which equates to minus-13 percent. It's also the case that fakeness is on the rise—it now accounts for about half of all 3-D releases—which could explain the general worsening of 3-D returns.

There was something in Brian's post I quoted about how all six films have already been converted to 3-D.  If that's true, and Phantom Menace tanks next year, I can see them scrapping the one-a-year plan and instead releasing them all next year, within a few weeks or a month of each other--like they did in '97--in honor of "the franchise's" 35th anniversary.  If they're already done.
