My Fondest Memory of H. R. Giger is a Little Game Called ‘Dark Seed’

Before I was a nerdy 28-year-old playing video games on Xbox, I was a nerdy 12-year-old playing computer games on a Macintosh that was the size of a dishwasher. My own personal version of Silent Hill was Dark Seed. To this day, after barely being able to hold my controller through Doom, Bioshock, Condemned, F.E.A.R, Dead Space and Resident Evil, Dark Seed remains the scariest game I’ve ever played.

You start as a man with a persistent headache who, after a lot of frustrating clicking and pointing, ends up traveling through a mirror into a parallel universe that is nothing but nightmares and evil alien beings. It ends with you peeing yourself.  Continue reading “My Fondest Memory of H. R. Giger is a Little Game Called ‘Dark Seed’”

Lady Gaga Ascending to Outer Space in 2015

Lady Gaga grammy space outfitSince her first CD and break into the industry, Lady Gaga has seemed too big for this world. From her outfits and attitude to her day-long birth from an egg, the ultimate metaphor for ego will finally come to fruition in 2015, when she ventures into space on a Virgin Galactic ship, courtesy of Richard Branson.

Gaga is reportedly scheduled to perform above New Mexico for the mysterious Zero G Colony festival, which is described as “a music experience that is truly out of this world” on the official website.

A source says she will have to prepare with extra lung-strengthening vocal training the month before, to prepare for the pressure change. ANDDD maybe she’ll stay in space until she comes up with new material and stops releasing b-sides from The Fame falsely packaged as new material. (At least that would explain the R. Kelly duet.)

‘Prometheus’ – Smart Director, Dumb Scientists

Ridley Scott was smart to not market Prometheus as a prequel to Alien, because that’s exactly what it is. Not in the cinematic “all your questions are answered” shoot-cut-wrap sort of way, but it does cleverly give fans of the original the easter egg they’ve been waiting for.

Scott is smarter here then he’s been in a long time, presenting you with special effects that make Battleship and everything else from recent years besides District 9 look like they were shot a day after computers were invented. Scott has also not lost his talent for creating the same tension for the audience that his characters are experiencing.

Scientists to be exact. Two in “charge,” though not as much as they’d like to be. Then a captain, medic, pilots, an overseer, an android, a geologist, a botanist, and a few others.  Continue reading “‘Prometheus’ – Smart Director, Dumb Scientists”

Octomom’s Tentacles Are Grasping Welfare Cards

Nadya Suleman aka Octomom, famous for being the second woman in America to give birth to octuplets, is collecting welfare.

In 2010 the mother of 14 inkblots total vowed that she would never be “a self-fulfilling prophecy,” taking direct deposits from the government.

This news comes after an unusual amount of fame-whoring from Suleman, like her nudity in Closer Magazine and job with Dial-A-Star, where you can talk to her for $14.00 a minute at 1-888-695-4543. (A dollar per child)

She reportedly earns $2,000 a month from the state of California and had to make less than $119,000 a year to qualify.

At one point all of her children were attending private school and “sources” had hinted that she was terrible at budgeting her income so this news is hardly surprising.

Fran Drescher Saw An Alien, Wasn’t Looking In The Mirror

Did Franny D see a being from another planet? That’s what Rob Shuter of the Huffington Post is claiming. Apparently she told him that her and her ex-husband Peter Marc Jacobson, creator of The Nanny, saw aliens.

“You know, it’s funny because Peter and I both saw [aliens] before we knew each other, doing the same thing, driving on the road with our dads, we were both in junior high.”

“A few years later, we met, and we realized that we had the same experience. I think that somehow we were programmed to meet. We both have this scar. It’s the exact same scar on the exact same spot.”  Continue reading “Fran Drescher Saw An Alien, Wasn’t Looking In The Mirror”

Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’ Trailer Revs Up Fans

 It looks like we will just have to wait until June 8, 2012 to uncover the mysteries of Prometheus and its connection to Alien, if any. Scott says it shares “original DNA” with his 1979 classic. Besides that we really don’t know anything about it except that it has a massive budget which is apparent in this teaser.

Rose McGowan Looks Like An Alien During NY Fashion Week

I really like Rose McGowan, I think she’s funny and has a pretty decent career, appearing in one of my favorite movies, Jawbreaker, and favorite shows Nip/Tuck.

HOWEVER I don’t approve of her blatant plastic surgery addiction. In this photo of her at NY Fashion Week, her lips look like two pink burn-victim survivor slugs.

Her eyes and forehead seem forlorn, aggravated from all the needle injection points. Weird how most people who continuously get botox or cosmetic surgery are the ones who need it the least.
