Blood Bros - First Blood →

Do you like synth-heavy power-rock songs all about fighting for love/survival/glory? Then you’ll love Blood Bros’ 45-minute mix of all the best songs from 80s action movies. I went running with this just now and loved it. But at the same time, the training montage music from Rocky 4 has been on my workout playlist for years now. That’s just the kind of guy I am.

Never mind the visuals. Nothing beats the Jaaaaam version of ‘The Gush’.

If You're Gonna Be Dumb, You Gotta Be Tough: An Ode to Jackass | Splitsider →

While it’s certainly not what scholars might consider classic cinema, I’d be willing to bet that Jackass will be shown as classic comedy for years to come. I think it showed a group of guys having the time of their lives and offering much needed release during a time in American history when it needed it the most.

Agreed, 100%.

Why am I playing LA Noire (sic) when I could be watching a film? →

Shit, even Donald Clarke gets it. Compare and contrast with Joe Griffin’s review from last month.

Can the Irish Times get Donald Clarke to review all its games from now on?

I’d love to see Honey, I Shrunk the Kids re-cut to the music of Serge Gainsbourg.

Apologies to RSS Readers →

I’m moving my blog to Tumblr, which has caused my RSS feed to go completely bananas and start posting things from months ago. Sorry guys!

Actors with Action Figures →

Narcissistic? Maybe. Self-indulgent? Perhaps a little. But I mean, come on - having your own action figure would be undeniably awesome.
