Rorschach Reviews

This week I’m introducing the first of many in my new segment B Movie Madness!!  Keep an eye out for future entries from the old (do I hear a Plan 9 review coming?) to the new (Megashark vs. Giant Octopus!).

I can’t remember any time I was more shocked and awed by a movie trailer than I was for Iron Sky‘s.  Many of you may have seen it during the Super Bowl or later online and like me many of you probably thought it was some sort of joke.  A joke it wasn’t however, and this 7.5 million dollar creation of Finnish, German and Australian studios has recently been released across Europe in all of it’s ridiculous glory.  While it’s American release date has not been set, look for it to come our way within the next several months or so.

I could describe the intricate details…

An amusing-looking (and harmless) independent film called Iron Sky is hoping to make some noise at Comic-Con. The noise they’ve picked is that of goose-stepping — a publicity march of hot women dressed as pseudo-Nazis marching around the convention this Saturday. And you can hashtag your pics, too!

Let’s say you got Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation to vastly overpay for your upstart social networking site, thus giving you the option of cashing out and retiring early. You’d be probably be pretty proud of yourself, so much so that you’d scoff at all the poor suckers who still have to do real work for a living. And per BusinessInsider, that’s precisely what MySpace founder Tom Anderson did this week when he described himself on his Twitter feed as “the guy who sold myspace in 2005 for $580 million while you slave away hoping for a half-day off.” Anderson’s tirade was in response to criticism from one of his Twitter followers who mocked Anderson for not being “able to keep a social network alive.”

Google Now may be one of Google’s most underrated new products of 2012, but I think it will turn out to be Google’s killer mobile product in the long run. It’s the one tool that brings together virtually everything Google knows about you and where you are and then turns all of this information into a useful dashboard on your phone. No other Google product (with the possible exception of some of its advertising services) draws up such a wealth of data about you.

Chances are, you are already familiar with what Google Now looks like from a user’s perspective, but here’s a quick primer for those who are not: Google Now is a standard feature of Android Jelly Bean and up. It’s an easily accessible screen that shows you information about your daily commute (because it learns where you go every day and makes an educated guess as to…

Chris Trotter has responded to Brian Edwards (The Anonymity Pandemic) and the debate on pseudonyms and MSM versus blogger. He makes some  quite remarkable claims in Islands In The Mainstream.

The big problems will only arise when the stories people read on the blogs begin to sharply contradict stories being printed in the newspapers and broadcast over radio and television. That’s when the MSM should really begin to worry.
But if the note of alarm that has crept into the MSM’s coverage of blogs – especially political blogs – over the past few weeks is anything to go by, some of that worrying has already begun.

The tone of these attacks leaves little doubt that not only do these political journalists consider bloggers to be unwelcome and illegitimate contributors to the nation’s political discourse, but that nothing would make them happier than to see them tightly regulated and…

Google has long been running a number of experimental Search and Gmail field trials anybody can sign up for and today it’s launching a few nifty new search features for searching your Gmail inbox from Google.com on the desktop and your iOS or Android phone. Previously, Google already let you find you flights by using the [my flights] search operator, but now you can also use queries like [my purchases] to find your latest Amazon acquisitions and track they packages they are coming in.

In addition, you can also use [my events] to, as Google says, “see information from Ticketmaster or Eventbrite about your upcoming concert, sports game or other event.”

It’s worth noting that Google already uses some of…

Beyond Highbrow - Robert Lindsay

Repost from the old site.

Update: Since this piece was linked at Whatreallyhappened, we have gotten a lot of traffic coming to read it. Many are asking for the DU censorship rules and the 149 page hate directory referenced in the post below.

It is due to the psychopaths in the Jewish Israeli Lobby that America has gotten so wrapped up in the Middle East as a supporter of the KKK-Jews in Israel and their criminal wars in the region.

Some question whether the Israeli Lobby is really a Jewish Lobby, pointing to Christian Zionist support for Israel. True, Christian Zionists do support Israel, but they do little political lobbying for Israel, and this is what it is all about (see this article by Jeff Blankfort, who is Jewish, or really any article by him, for more. Blankfort is the Pope of the Anti-Jewish Lobby Crowd).

The Israeli Lobby is…

Twitter has made adjustments to its top executives, making Ali Rowghani the new chief operating officer and replacing him in the chief financial officer position with Mike Gupta, who held the same role at Zynga. The personnel change was first reported by AllThingsD and confirmed in a tweet from CEO Dick Costolo on Wednesday night:

Rowghani was previously the chief financial officer at Twitter, and he will now assume the role that Dick Costolo held before becoming CEO in 2010. Before joining Twitter, Rowghani was CFO at Pixar. Gupta was most recently chief financial officer at Zynga before coming to Twitter  in November.

The company has seen several changes and hires in key roles in the last year as the company grew and moved to…
