"What's the movie this week Rev.?"

If it's Sunday, that means one thing around the Woodshed, music and movies!

Okay, so it's two things, but you get my point. Sunday's are Radio Woodshed/Red Zeppelin days.
So tune in, turn on and mind the drop, it's a long way down from way up here.
A cornucopia of the finest music starting at 5 pm Pacific/ 8 pm Eastern followed up with the latest and greatest offering from the Glorious People's Cinema Project at 7 pm Pacific/ 10 pm East -- half an hour later in Newfoundland. So get on up and get on down, but protect your precious bodily fluids as we stop worrying and learn to love the bomb with Dr. Strangelove.

so crazy it just might work

Kevin Smith wants to make a movie with Mitch Albom based on a Warren Zevon song about hockey that features the vocal styling of David Letterman.

Yes, you heard me right. The guy that made all the "Clerks" stuff and "Zack&Miri Make a Porno," the sentimental, foul-mouthed, Gretzky-worshipping, idiot-savant of Smodcast and Silent Bob fame is planning to team up with the Detroit sportswriter that wrote the immensely successful  and immensely maudlin "Tuesdays with Morrie" and "Five People You Meet In Heaven" to make a hockey movie and he wants it to be an "awards movie."  The end result is either going to be pretty good ("Chariots of Fire" meets "Slap Shot" crossed with "The Sweater") or downright frightening  ("Youngblood" "The Mighty Ducks" and "Miracle" crossed with "Jersey Girl.")

Silent Bob in geek heaven

Seriously, he had Stan Lee, Johnny Rotton, Carrie Fisher and Eddie Izzard (among other notables) in his house all at the same time? Someone should suggest he remake The Party , perhaps as the third installment in the Harold and Kumar franchise. Maybe a sort of H&K meet Jay & Silent Bob kinda thing.

Why is Cheney on TV and not in prison?

It is interesting to see Cheney running to get in front of the cameras and claim that "torture worked". It doesn't. And even if it did, torture is immoral, illegal and uncivilized - whether it works or not is irrelevant. Arguing about whether or not torture works is like arguing about whether you can get rich making kiddie porn or whether eating live babies cures cancer.
