The Osama Bin Laden Collectors Coin

What better way to celebrate the death of America’s favorite enemy than to buy a $50 coin? I saw this commercial the other day and couldn’t get it out of my head. Normally on this blog I discuss film and television, avoiding commercials, but this is one that I can’t pass up. Here’s the video:

In the real world it’s not called tardy, it’s called fired

I know I’ve been neglecting Abortions For All lately and for the few of you out there that read this: I’m sorry. I just finished school and haven’t really watched anything outside my comfort zone in the last few days. Honestly, aside from reading for pleasure (a novel idea), working on my music blog (click here to see Aural Abortions), and hanging out with my girlfriend (when we can), I haven’t done much.

Expect reviews on the following films in the next week or so

Another Showgirls post about Nomi’s desires (which I started a few weeks ago but haven’t finished)
The Sound of Music (which I saw on Mother’s Day. I took out my girlfriend’s mother because she had to work)
Mr. Show (yes, the old HBO series)

And a few others.

In the meantime here’s a video of a call-in television show host receiving a barrage of insults on the air. Enjoy and thanks for reading.

My September 11th Post: Films Featuring 9/11 Allusions

Last week I was watching a copy of Terminator 2: Judgment Day I picked up on Blu-Ray (it looks great) and noticed this:

About a month or so ago when I watched Independence Day (a mistake I’ll never make again) I noticed the countdown clock on Jeff Goldblum’s computer also said 9:11. Now I’m not a conspiracy theory nut but I’ve noticed a great deal of September 11th imagery in films released prior to the attacks. Naturally, the numbers “9-1-1” have connotations in American society extending beyond these events from almost a decade ago (it’s the number we call in an emergency, which I’m assuming everybody knows) but I can’t help feeling those looking for surreptitious government plots are interesting, even if I don’t believe them. I’m sorry but I don’t believe in secret societies the same way some of these people online do and just because the internet is a free forum (for now) doesn’t mean your ideas hold any water. However, being the sick bastard I am sometimes, here are some of my favorite images from pre-9/11 films featuring allusions to September 11th.
