Long ago, I gathered evidence proving that Spongebob Squarepants is an indisputably heterosexual stud among studs. Well, more proof keeps bubbling to the surface. Steve Price caught this rare photograph and e-mailed it to me the other day:
Anybody who jams with AC/DC is chock full of testosterone!
First of all, I’d like to welcome a new advertiser here, WMD: The Murderous Reign of Saddam Hussein. It’s a new movie, and even if you don’t see it up on the marquee at your local 20-screen megaplex, you can get a DVD for yourself at the very reasonable price of $19.95.
The creative minds behind this project include Brad L. Maaske, Jano Rosebiani, Victor Davis Hanson (a brilliant military historian and thinker), Evan Coyne Maloney (sane Americans’ answer to Michael Moore), and Judith Mendelsohn Rood. My copy of the DVD is on its way here, and when I get a chance to watch it I’ll let you know if it’s as good as it looks to be. In the meantime you can browse some good reviews here or check out the trailer here.
An excerpt describing the project:
Alarmed by the lack of outcry against the atrocities committed by Hussein’s regime, Maaske set out to uncover the truth surrounding the under-reported acts of atrocity committed directly by or under the command of Saddam Hussein, along with Iraq’s links to global terrorism and America’s military action to remove Hussein from power. Central to the story are eyewitness accounts and never-before-seen footage of chemical attacks, murders and torture leveled against the population of Iraq dating from Saddam’s corrupt rise to power and spanning more than two decades.
Although many filmmakers have chosen to ignore the horrific atrocities that the Iraqi people had to endure under Hussein and the sacrifice that American soldiers have made to free them from these atrocities, WMD directs the viewer to the little-known facts. Regardless of anyone’s political views, the story of Saddam Hussein’s evil reign, and the horrors that were thankfully ended by bringing this reign to an end, is one that all Americans should know.
Give WMD: The Murderous Reign of Saddam Hussein a look. I know I will.
Now, my second announcement. I’m moving on Saturday, so for the next several days my access to the ‘net will be spotty at best. I’ll be back in the saddle by Monday with a nice high-speed connection (or so Comcast assures me).
See you then if not sooner!
Can we all stop fussing over SpongeBob SquarePants and his alleged dalliances with Patrick the Starfish or other male toons, please?
He’s a manly sponge, and definitely not gay. If you have further photoshopped evidence of this, please send it my way (me at brainshavings dot com) and I’ll post it here.
Based on a blurb I heard on the Hugh Hewitt show, I decided to try out the whole blogging-as-more-than-a-hobby thing. Specifically, bloggers who mention a certain movie get goodies, and I checked it out. I sent an e-mail to the publicist and got this reply:
There�s been overwhelming response from bloggers responding to the offer for free tickets to an advance screening of IN GOOD COMPANY.
So Universal Pictures and Grace Hill Media wants to respond to that enthusiasm by upping the ante: any blogger who signs up for the free tickets and then posts this offer and a link to the IN GOOD COMPANY trailer on their site will be automatically entered in a contest to win their very own private screening of IN GOOD COMPANY in their town. The winner can either fill the screening with their friends and family, or see the film alone with that special someone � it�s entirely up to them. One lucky blogger here in the US will win. Sign up at firstname.lastname@example.org and send us your link. And of course, all the non-winners will still be eligible to attend an advance screening in their area.
Want to know what my biggest surprise was? Based on the trailer, this looks like an interesting movie that I might actually go see, even if I were paying for the ticket. I’ll let you know if it lives up to its billing.
If you’re looking for video, your one-stop shop is still the video page at Cheese & Crackers.
If you’re looking for news, go see what Arthur Chrenkoff has pulled together. He’s got one heck of a round-up.
As before, please help in whatever way you can:
UPDATE: Chrenkoff has Wednesday’s tsunami news round-up posted. There’s some good news mixed in with the bad.
UPDATE 2: Waxy.org also has several videos.
Rather than constantly updating my last tsunami video post, I’ll just point you right to the latest clips hosted by Cheese & Crackers. Even some Kenyans caught it on video, tossing their fishing boats like bathtub toys.
As before, please help in whatever way you can:
UPDATE: Incredible footage from Aceh, Indonesia, where the wave first struck.
UPDATE 2: Go here for the latest.
Videos of the tsunami arriving in Thailand: here and here.
Please help in whatever way you can:

Harrison Ford will soon star as General Jim Mattis in a movie telling the story of the Battle of Fallujah. BlackFive reprints an e-mail to Ford from a Marine wife who wonders if the actor will treat the Marines respectfully in the movie.

There’s a movie about Ray Charles coming out in October. I heard The Unblinking Eye praising the trailer, so I watched it myself. I’m definitely going to go see this one.
