KILL ME OMG THE POKEMON GO AD DIDN’T SHOW THE RELEASE DATE OR ANYTHING. WTH IS THIS I’M SO MAD WHY WOULD THEY PUT THE AD ON YOUTUBE IF THEY WERE GOING TO AIR IT DURING THE SUPERBOWL OMG WELL HERE WE GO WITH WAITING EVEN MORE FOR SOME KIND OF INFO

Genghis Khan and D.E.B.S.

All this stuff about the Genghis Khan music video has been lovely and I’m enjoying the hell outta it.

I just wanted to bring up how much it reminds me of D.E.B.S.

Not necessarily the feature film we got, no, the short film it was based on. I was always sad that we never got that movie. Thankfully someone has since uploaded it to vimeo: https://vimeo.com/23238222

Premise is a team of female spies like the Charlie’s Angels, and one of their agents, Amy, keeps getting captured by Lucy Diamond the evil supervillain. The other girls have to rush in and save Amy at the last minute all the time.

Of course, Lucy Diamond and Amy are actually super gay and using these scenarios as a cover to hook up and have sex secretly, unbeknownst to Amy’s fellow agents and Lucy’s minions. 

The movie took things in a bit of a more lighthearted direction, because they wanted a wider release and couldn’t show much in the way of sexy times. 

Anyways, my point, if I had one, was that I’m gonna headcanon Evil June Cleaver as a Lucy Diamond-esque villain, and throw a D.E.B.S. like agent at her because everyone deserves a little happiness. 

To @grand-duchessa, @morgan-le-fay, and all of us who are disgusted with the news of TWP to be picked up by Starz:

There is still hope that the show TWP will not happen.

You have heard the term “development hell”, right? That is when the project is stuck in the “production” stage for years and years.

And there’s also the term “release limbo” where a show/film never get to be released.

If you go to IMDB, you’d find tons of shows where it’s announced; stars chosen; script in progress, but nothing more. 

Here are some examples:

  • CW announced their pursue to make a show on Wonder Woman, a spiritual sequel to “Smallville” in 2012. Current status: still on hold because of the show “Flash” was picked up.
  • VC Andrew’s “Landry” TV adaption was attempted back in 1990s by CBS and then shuffled here and there and finally, in 2014 development restarted. Nobody knows its current status.
  • “How I Met Your Dad” - spiritual sequel to “How I Met Your Mother”. Meg Ryan has already been chosen to star in this TV series using the same plot with the gender reversed. It’s not going to happen because 1) HIMYM’s finale met with mixed reviews, 2) production and network have disagreement, 3) actors’ contract expired. Current stats: it’s not working out.
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer has the spin-off “Angel”; but there were other ideas that never came to light, “Ripper” and “Faith” - spin-off that focuses on Giles and Faith.  Current stats: nothing yet

So here you go, I am convinced that TWP will not get to be released. It’d probably will be made but not be picked up by Starz. It seems to be that Starz might agree to have it made in case if there’s no other show or particularly costume drama to broadcast. 

How the state of Michigan feels about Flint kids in one ugly quote

While attorneys have subpoenaed all emails and communications between Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder ® over the ongoing Flint water crisis, a few details have been released showing what can only be described as depraved indifference on the part of state workers to the plight of Flint citizens.

The Republican governor released some staff emails on Jan. 20, showing that he was well aware that Flint citizens were slowly being poisoned following a decision by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to force them to live with lead-tainted water.

According to the NY Times, Snyder was informed in one email that a state nurse told one young mother to not worry about the damage being done to her child when her son’s blood showed an elevated lead level.

“It is just a few IQ points. … It is not the end of the world,” the nurse reportedly told the worried mom.

According to whistle-blower Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, “If you were going to put something in a population to keep them down for generations to come — it would be lead.”

Struggletown Records & Punk Rock Rammy are pleased to present the official release show for the reissue of the debut EP ‘Matters’ by Koji on vinyl for the first time.

Part of the UK and Ireland tour alongside The City On Film (Bob Nanna - Braid/Hey Mercedes) this show promises to be an intimate affair, with plenty of heartfelt, acoustic indie, punk & emo.

There will be special release show covers available only at this show.

One week from today, Grow Up, Dude will officially be released. Wow. This thing has been nearly two years in the making and I don’t think I can stress enough how excited we are for it.

To celebrate, we’re throwing a grand ole’ party at Will’s Pub on Friday, April 27th in Orlando. We’d love to see as many friends as possible there. Come get drunk with our parents.

We also realize that we have taken a severe neglecting to Florida and all the wonderful people who reside here so we’re going to spend some time coming to a town near you in an attempt to try and make you get drunk with us. Here’s some details:

Also, stupid Steven Gray from Dikembe will be playing some acoustic jams with us. Rad. If you have any questions, ask us! But be prepared for an unreasonable answer.

WE SHOULD HAVE VINYL. should. If we don’t, blame Topshelf.
