Machete and both Cranks are movies that do what you're talking about kaworu. I'm not sure about videogames though.

"zeitgeist" is german for "time ghost"
 
i think that one Bulletstorm game and something called Lollipop Chainsaw were deliberate attempts to make something campy and over-the-top but the mainstream of ultraviolent pulp videogames is already so ridiculous that any attempt at irony just gets absorbed immediately into the ordinary state of affairs. wasn't this what Duke Nukem started off as before it became the Bro Grail. possibly the same with Metal Gear Solid and Resident Evil and whatever else.
there's the Earth Defense Force series i guess which is just about blowing up monstrous spiders + buildings.
 
anyway happe new year everyone...!

and yeah, mortal kombat is like a half-hearted attempt at creating something over-the-top and I guess ironic, but it really fails at this pretty badly

SO I was listening to This Version  of Pon POn PON and my hard-rock loving housemate  came down and asked me to turn it down as he could hear it over the TV!  :D

I started listening to My Bloody Valentine because I was trying to find more shoegaze stuff similar to The Verve. It wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. Where do I go from here?

Well to be fair I haven't given their (two?) studio albums a full listen-through yet so I should probably do that. I'll check out those other ones you mentioned too.

Edit: Urban Hymns is my favorite album ever, so I'm trying to find stuff closer to that. Bittersweet Symphony is great and all but my favorite tracks are actually Sonnet, The Drugs Don't Work and One Day.

gargonherd linked me to a thing about joybubbles (famous "phreak" (i hate portmanteaus too)) and it's pretty fascinating. i've always loved reading about cool people with very esoteric but inherently interesting skills or talents.

he is a super cool guy

this got moved over to the bootstraps thread which is kind of funny except that thing is now in 7 pages

I wish my Android phone's notification LED blinked more often when there was a notification pending. I have to stare at it for like 5 seconds straight if I want to be sure that it's not going to blink. Maybe Ice Cream Sandwich will fix this?

suck my nuts

if you're gonna post an abbreviation for some obscure medical condition without saying shit else and expecting me to go google it then what the hell point is there in even mentioning it?

It is or is like carpel tunnel? if it is I got the same thing then. I gotta get surgery, they gave me corrective bracers but they just keep my hands from shittin out and not working. I forgot to wear em for a night two weeks ago and my left hand went limp.
