Hello Kitty AR-15 - evil black rifle meets cute and cuddly
2:07 pm EST, Jan 1, 2008
In the "spirit" of the California Assault Weapon Ban I decided to do my best to alleviate the fears of my fellow citizens and gun-banning legislators when I put together a new AR-15 for my wife. Below is the result of my painstaking work to transform an Evil Black Rifle (EBR) into a Cute Pink RIfle (CPR). Introducing the Hello Kitty AR-15!
When I started working with Dave Maynor a few years ago he told me that if I was going to be working with him, I had to buy a gun. I told him the only gun I would buy was a hot pink AK-47. That put an end to the discussion, but I was partially serious. It seemed the sort of weapon a William Gibson character would carry, or perhaps a weapon popular in Africa, the cultural juxtaposition making it all the more wicked. Like the wigged warriors of Liberia. Well, finally someone has obliged, almost...
This started as a response to someone who told me that Atlanta was cool as long as you stay north. Well thats fascist bullshit. Cause all the good bars are south of ponce (sopo). Here's the Jollarian Bar Guide for Lefties in Atlanta:
I highly endorse this bar list. There are a few I'd add, and a few on here I haven't been to. I'd also drop the leftie designation having gotten drunk at the Yacht Club a few weeks ago with a decidedly Republican and his collection of birthday revelers.
Long film review of _Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy_
12:34 pm EDT, Apr 11, 2005
] This review is based on a substantially complete version ] of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy shown to a small ] group of journalists in London on 31st March 2005, to ] which I was invited by Buena Vista International and ] Digital Outlook.
The short version is this guy HATES this film. Lots of comments and some counter-reviews on Slashdot. It appears, however, that some of my favorite moments from the original, such as the commentaries on God and infinity, are missing or highly redacted. Comments that "some things just don't work on film" are really stupid here given that this book was already made into a movie. I'm sure its funny. I'm sure its been playtested, and if it wasn't funny they'd have re-edited. I'm not sure its going to be smart.
