Dunce cappin' and kazooin'

I knew that picture would come in handy at some point.

Watching too much The Wire can make you forget that, for all its ultra-heavy, heartwrenching thematic arcs and true-to-life gravitas, it's a just a damn TV show. I'm here to help.

I don't mean to pull the culturally out of touch mom card here, but stop ghostriding the whip. Just stop. You're going to hurt yourself. No one is blessed with the innate ability to dance on a moving vehicle. Except the one dude from Teen Wolf.

Luc Besson is quitting filmmaking to [read the headline].

Shoutout to the inimitable Chris Boucher, who somehow managed to evade certain death and establish his own successful personal concierge service in the same year. Smile, Chedda. Smile.

Justin Lin, who directed indie hit Better Luck Tomorrow and the curiously City Paper-recommended The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, is working on Finishing the Game, a spoof fictionalizing the insipid attempt to complete Bruce Lee's Game of Death after the Dragon's passing. Stars include James Franco...and MC Hammer. More at Kung Fu Cinema, which is the best website ever.

One Track Mind on Kels and Jeezy. People at work have taken to calling me "Young Drewzy." Sigh.

In irrelevant NBA trade news: Earl Boykins and Julius Hodge for Steve "Seed of McVeigh" Blake? Is there any rhyme or reason behind this transaction? It seems like the Nuggets and the Bucks just did it to do it.

I finally got around to making a Flickr for some of my writing clips. Just music up now, but I'm in the process of getting some food- and phone sex-related pieces on there as well.
