It's been a long time since I've posted a series of random links. For a while it was a Friday tradition. But like many recurring features that came before it, the random links series was brought to an untimely end. Now it's back because I can't think of anything else to post today. If this proves popular, (i.e. at least one reader comments on it), I might just bring it back next week. How exciting. Let's get started.
Human slavery? Bad, bad, bad. But forcing your human slave to raise your kids and work 90 hours a week? In Salem? That puts you on the Official Evil Scale somewhere between Dick Cheney and the minds behind Happy Feet (George Miller notwithstanding).He's mocked numerous Congresspeople, declared bears a threat to national security, lightsaber dueled with George Lucas and has fought Nancy Pelosi via Wii Sports. Now he's going after the Decemberists. Oh, Stephen Colbert, you are one cheeky monkey.Here's two more links from The Last Boss worth mentioning. What does a PS3 look like going over Niagara Falls? Click here for a video. What would the opening scene of The Big Lebowski look like if Jeff Bridges and crew were replaced with Miis? Click here for another video. Lars Larson is set to appear in an upcoming episode of Penn and Teller's Bullshit! Just one episode? I wonder if he'll wear his new elk jacket during the segment (scroll down to the reply that mentions New Seasons). IGN has cobbled together the top 50 loose ends in Lost. My favorite: the ridiculous four-toed statue that popped up in the season two finale. But the one they left off the list: whether or not anyone will still care what happens to the survivors after the writers come up with another 50 when the series returns in February. This R2-D2 toy, which is capable of working as a security alarm, could very well be the coolest toy in the history of the world. Or at least it's cooler than that new Elmo doll everyone's going nuts over. Oh, and Dog Poop Barbie.Click here for the definition of "bitterness" (click here for some context).
