HERE WE GO AGAIN: The hamster wheel turns again as we head back to work. Hopefully this will ease your pain. LET IT BE KNOWN: Thenanigans' bracket officially died Sunday afternoon. Cest la vie.
You need to see this in all its glory. Head on over here for the oohs and ahs.
WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT: Even though audiences are, for the most part, meh to 3D movies, Hollywood is committed to them. What does that mean for all of us who choose the 2D variety? Joe Paletta of Screen Trade Magazine tells us:
Among the bigger changes will probably see the 3D-upcharge disappear. 3D charges will
help increase the overall ticket-price but, as an industry, I think we’ll see a blend begin to emerge in 2012, where patrons will have a single price for both 2D and 3D films. 2D prices will increase and 3D prices will decrease.
Bastards. And they wonder why people just choose to rent movies in the comfort of their own home.
APARTMENT HIGH RISE OF THE DAY: This isn't some conceptual dream. It is going to be built. Applause.
THE DAPPERED RAM:
IT'S OFFICIAL: The people responsible for prime-time entertainment are bereft of ideas. This seems rather unseamly to thenanigans. Plus, desperate. CBS Television gets the side eye from yours truly.
AWFUL, BALDY, BURPY, DIRTY, FLABBY, HICKEY, AND WOEFUL: What could have been.
ASSHAT OF THE DAY: I didn't realize people still took this guy seriously. Is it too much to hope that he would just slither away? If you aren't caught up on the Trayvon Martin controversy, here's a primer.
I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE OF THE DAY: I laughed.
DAMN NATURE, YOU SCARY: This is rather disgusting. WTF?
IT'S OUR OWN DAMN FAULTS: America wants everything to be cheap, or on sale or heavily discounted. To that end, big box retailers have figured out how to cut costs. They just have someone else have someone else have someone else hire the low-paid workers. No benefits. No health insurance. No more American Dream. Ta-Da!
SO THIS IS WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE:
This is a wombat. Yeah, I didn't either.
WHEN PARENTS SUCK: Thenanigans emcee's an event eggsactly like this every year and every year he has to deal with parents who think that the rules don't apply to them. Thenanigans loathes these people.
WHEN PARENTS DON'T SUCK: This right here is pretty cool. That's one lucky kid.
WELCOME HOME OF THE DAY:
This pup is pretty happy to have his buddy home. Your cat would just chew you out for being gone.
