Many science fiction films portray the future as a beautiful place
where sleek chrome ships glide through skies, cybernetic servants cater
to our every whim, and war is but a distant memory. In Dune
however, the future is apparently the 70s. Drab, puffy-haired men
wander around cheap sets in a druggy haze while mumbling vaguely religious
threats, everyone wears unflattering jumpsuits, and seemingly,
only three colors of paint exist: brown, green, and burnt orange. But
most importantly, Dune takes place in a
future where humans have seemingly disregarded all previous technological
advancements in favor of a bunch of crappy stuff they found in junkyard somewhere.
pulled into the lot and George swung the car into a handicapped space.
I furrowed my brow and peered at the blue sign through the cracked windshield.
“As far as I know,” I said, “You aren’t a handicap.”
is justice.” He said, pushing the car door open with his knee. “Why
should a cripple get a free ride? Let him put on a stained white work
shirt. Let him push despair into the pit of his belly and smile at the
customers. I say put down the crutch and pick up a shovel; There’s work
to be done.”

Some people respect doctors, but I think acting is the noblest career a
man can have. Can you think of another job where you make people’s
lives better and are also respected for it? Of course you can’t. This
series is dedicated to the best of the best in the acting field. These
are the greatest performers of our generation, they make us laugh and
cry and fall in love (with them). Be sure to have a tissue handy too,
because some of the movie memories I unearth are real tearjerkers. A
real man isn't afraid to cry.
For many children, the dream of feasting upon the blood of the living
in order to attain immortality is never fully realized. Sure, sucking
the blood from a fresh cut on an infant or relative might give a person
a cheap thrill, but the joy it brings is hollow and fleeting. So even though you may
never be able to be a vampire, that doesn’t stop you from learning
something about them, does it? This article compiles the many minutes of research
I have done on vampires into one easy-to-ignore page of utter idiocy.
Certainly you’ve met others in your life who you would consider
to be “rude”. Some murmur loudly while chewing their food, some knock
over the elderly in order to get a better spot in line, and then there
are those who would reach in to grab a piece of gum out of your mouth
before you’ve even finished chewing it. But who can you turn to when
you need to find out if something is “impolite”? Miss Manners? If you
want to listen to that senile old bag, go right ahead and waste your
time. But if you’d rather learn about manners by reading a ridiculous
article written by an anonymous author on a no-budget website that absolutely no one reads, please
Have you ever gotten a chill when walking by a pharaoh’s tomb? This is
likely caused by the spirit of a mummy. Mummies are ancient creatures
which have been around for hundreds of years. Thousands of people have
been killed by them. A few have even been captured and are now on
display in museums across the globe. I recommend that you go view one
or two (at your peril of course). If you don’t feel like heading into
some musty old museum though, just read this article. You might just
learn a thing or two about mummies.
a stranger in need will bring no reward, and thoughtlessness breaks no
law. How can one publicly shame those who wrong them while
simultaneously commending anonymous do-gooders? By writing to the
Sainted/Tainted portion of the local newspaper, that's how! Here are a
few selected entries we've compiled from the most prestigious papers
around the globe.

Werewolves are intriguing creatures, and like most other monsters there
is a lot of misinformation floating around about them. Luckily I have
been asked to shed some light on the subject in this series of monster
Q&As, beginning with werewolves (also see the werewolf guide HERE).
They have also asked world renowned "monster expert" Art Crumb to
co-author these articles with me. Frankly, I'm a bit offended by this,
as I have had personal experiences and actually seen nearly every type
of monster before (including werewolves). Some of my close friends even
refer to me as "The Beastmaster". Impressive, no?
