In the Beginning… (content pages)

The circle of life.

IN THE BEGINNING...

...humans and dinosaurs lived side by side. That's what's shown in the Sight & Sound Theatres retelling of Genesis 1-4, anyway! In this review several attractions in Lancaster County, PA, we highlight the absurdity of it all.  (9/19/08)

In the beginning, there was nonsense.

NEW ARTICLE! I suppose that goes without saying, since it's usually the case when I post entries to the Scary-Crayon blog, but yes. Today's feature, a review of "In the Beginning" and other stuff in Lancaster County, PA, details my adventures and thoughts concerning a religious "retreat" that I attended last month. All of the salient details are in the article, though I must admit that, as I read up on related topics, I was shocked and appalled to learn just how many Americans accept the stories in the Bible as fact. If 60% of Americans believe that dinosaurs were here en masse 6000 years ago, it's no wonder that the United States isn't ranking so high in terms of science education and development. Bloody hell.

The Barack Obama action figure! (content pages)

An Action Figure We Can Believe In

BARACK OBAMA, ACTION FIGURE

Barack Obama's been many things: community organizer, professor, senator, presidential candidate... and now he's even a novelty action figure! Read on for a closer look at the 6-inch representation of an inspiring leader.  (9/8/08)

Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #105! (content pages)

''Baby be damned -- I'm giving my speech!''

Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #105!

When you're pregnant and your water breaks, it's a good idea to get yourself to a hospital pronto -- but tell that to Sarah Palin! In Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #105, we mock the governor's irresponsible actions.  (9/8/08)

Politics, politics, politics!

Well, not quite -- but today's features are connected to the current election coverage. First up, as promised, there's the review of the Barack Obama action figure! I've linked to Jailbreak Toys in the article, but you can also find Obama at Urban Outfitters stores and order them from a number of online retailers. I got mine from Amazon.com.

And then there's Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #105, which uses screencaps from "Angel" Season 3 to make fun of the actions that led up to the birth of VP candidate Sarah Palin's latest child. Given that the details are pretty much all verifiable in online articles from the Anchorage Daily News (see the former article for more specific links), I refuse to believe that McCain's campaign fully vetted this woman before offering her a spot on the ticket. Every medical article that I can find online indicates that a pregnant woman should go to the hospital immediately after her water breaks, yet Palin not only endangered her baby's safety by waiting, but also got on a plane and flew all the way back to Alaska before doing so. Hell, she didn't even alert the airline that she was pregnant! Given the possibility that she could have gone into labor in the air, not to mention all of the complications that can arise when one is giving birth to a baby with Down syndrome, it seems pretty clear to me that Palin's poor judgment should disqualify her from holding any political office. Seriously, this shit doesn't even make any sense.

And now my head is hurting again, so I guess I'll end this here. Until next time, assuming President Palin doesn't fuck things up so horrifically in an alternate future that the exploding carnage causes reverse temporal feedback and nukes us all in the present!

FERVID FASHIONISTA FIXATION!!!

Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #104! (content pages)

Sarah Jane is ferocious.

Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #104!

Sarah Jane Smith may have been a shrieking pushover in the 1970s, but -- as she's demonstrated on "Doctor Who" and "The Sarah Jane Adventures" -- she's learned how to fight since then! Davros is not impressed.  (9/3/08)

Sarah Jane Smith Update Fever!

As always, Scary-Crayon readers, my apologies for the hiatus -- things got kinda hectic over here for a while with the freelancing and the crazy political sitch and a couple of weeks of nonstop salivating over package arrivals. It's left me with a glut of things to review (hopefully I'll be quicker about getting to those in the coming weeks), but, as in so many other categories, Sarah Jane Smith had to take precedence!

So first up, Mickey is back with the third installment of Sarah Jane Smith Fashionista Fever! (which is also cross-posted over at her personal site)! As always, there's tons of fashionista... fever to be found in Mick's analyses -- not to mention salivating over boots and pink! striped! socks! -- so read and enjoy! And then, jumping ahead some 30+ years, Sarah Jane is also featured in Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #104 (which uses screencaps taken from the flipping awful "Journey's End"). To borrow a phrase from a certain "fuckin' redneck" and soon-to-be teenage father who shall remain nameless, she'll kick ass if you fuck with her.

Okey-doke, that's all for now. Next time -- which I hope will be very soon, as in within the next couple of days (I really want to get this piece done with) -- we'll have a review of the Barack Obama action figure! And maybe another screencap Hot Flash, since I'm really liking the DessinImmortel 1.0 font and want to use it a bit more. We'll see. 🙂
