Action Dude! at

'Action Dude' is based on the late 70's famous skate star TONY ALVA

Apparently he's a werewolf.

Where do they get such wonderful toys?

Other Specifications :
Remarks : wearing a Vans OLD SKOOL sneaker and comes with a 70's skateboard!!

Sensasian tends to take FOREVER to load. But, they have some neat stuff and decent prices. (Well, that Tony Alva thing is pretty pricey, but it IS limited edition and all...) I ordered the standard edition of Infernal Affairs III from them, and they ended up sending me the boxset. So that was cool.

Tuesday, December 21, 2004 ends, not with a bang but a whimper | The Register ends, not with a bang but a whimper | The Register

Yup, I guess it's true.

But then, just as the death and ultimate sellout of Napster yielded better programs like Soulseek and even, in a sense, Bit Torrent, the crack down on Bit Torrent will only lead to an even better method of download and likely with improved encryption. Because, I mean, really...the only use the internet serves is finding free porn and bootlegs.

Schrader's Exorcist


Another Exorcist coming to theatres
Posted on Thr, 9-Dec-2004
Why isn't Paul Schrader's cut of "The Exorcist : The Beginning" listed as an extras component on the soon-to-be-released DVD?
Easy : His version is set to be released as a stand-alone movie all of its own.
"Paul is currently in post-production on the movie, as we're anticipating a limited theatrical release here in the United States sometime in 2005", Morgan Creek told Moviehole this morning.
When Schrader was hired to do the film, he was told to deliver a "non-pea soup" take.
"They made it clear -- no spinning heads and no pea soup," he told Daily Variety earlier this year. "So that's what I delivered, but then they changed their mind."
Stay tuned for an official release date for Schrader's cut.

And the obligitory Fark followup


Anime News Network - Yakitate!! Japan (TV)

This is the best thing since sliced bread. For real, though! Why can't American cartoons be this good?!?

Philly officials may ban kids from later PG films

Children under 6 at films past 7 p.m. could cost parents, theaters

Amen to that, brother!
There is never, ever, ever a need to bring a baby/toddler to a movie. Ever. Besides, isn't 7 pm a nice bedtime for kids under 6? It was many years ago, but I think that's what it was for me.

Bring this action to my home town, too!

Japan's internet 'suicide clubs'

BBC NEWS | Programmes | Newsnight | Japan's internet 'suicide clubs'

Well, I mean, if something's worth doing, it's worth doing creatively and with plenty of friends.

'Brainwave' cap controls computer

BBC NEWS | Technology | 'Brainwave' cap controls computer

This is a helluva lot cooler than a crappy ole tin-foil hat, I reckon.

"Four people, two of them partly paralysed wheelchair users, successfully moved a computer cursor while wearing a cap with 64 electrodes."

And, of course, the most important application:

"Earlier this year, a team at the MIT Media Labs Europe demonstrated a wireless cap which read brain waves to control a computer game character."

Artists, Musicians and the Internet Survey

From the Pew Internet & American Life Project:
"Their overall judgment is that unauthorized online file-sharing does not pose a major threat to creative industries: Two-thirds of artists say peer-to-peer file sharing poses a minor threat or no threat at all to them."


"Across the board, among those who are both successful and struggling, the artists and musicians we surveyed are more likely to say that the internet has made it possible for them to make more money from their art than they are to say it has made it harder to protect their work from piracy or unlawful use."


"...most (60%) [of the artists surveyed] believe that the RIAA campaign [of suing individuals who share] will not benefit them."


"Of those artists who download music files (n=118), most think that downloading has not really changed the total amount they spend on music purchases like CDs, concerts, or other music products (58% say this). Another 29% say they think downloading has actually increased what they spend on music purchases overall, and 13% say it has decreased their purchases. Likewise, among artists who either download music or video files (n=139), 86% say that when they download files for free, they usually end up supporting the artist or author in other ways, such as buying a CD or book or going to a performance. Just over half of all artists who download music or video files say they can’t always tell if it’s legal or illegal to download media files from the internet. More than two-thirds of the sample said they don’t currently pay to download any type of media files, but they would if the price, quality and choice they want become available."

I reckon the RIAA better start suing their own artists, too. Pretty soon, they'll have sued themselves out of both the people who make the music they're "protecting" and the people who buy it.

Here's the whole survey:
