No content tonight, as I must get a shitload of paperwork done to avoid being shot to death tomorrow morning.  Instead, a survey, and one sure to depress you: Talk about the saddest TV/movie moments you’ve ever seen.

X-E’s ’08 Summer Megaparty: Why So Cerealous?

Thank you, Cinnamon Toast Crunch. After my horrible failure with Reese’s Puffs, I’ve finally procured my very own Joker cereal toy. It’s the version that karate chops, which isn’t as life-changing as the version that karate kicks, but beggars can’t … Continue reading
