Ludicrous Speed

We have attained it.

Apparently the internet, fan boyz and fan girlz are in a tizzy because during the media tour for the new Avengers film Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner called the fictional character of Black Widow (not the actress who plays her) a slut and a whore. Listen to the question and answer […]

The Most Unserious Administration since Zachary Taylor

I dare you to prove otherwise.

From the Trailer Park -- Mr. Go

Baseball, check. Primate minus Matt LeBlanc, check. Beyond that, even if you check out more of the background behind this Korean flick at this link, I hope you have a better understanding of what this movie’s about that I do.
