American Horror Story on FX

I personally am intrigued by this show. I have seen a couple previews for it while trying to catch up on episodes of Archer and I think it looks pretty damn cool.

Here is a glimpse of their viral marketing campaign:

American Horror Story premieres on FX October 5th. Check that TV Guide to make sure you don't miss it!

Oh, and more news of The Human Centipede Part 2: Full Sequence

Yeah... The first one disgusted me and this one looks like it would get the same reaction out of me. The only difference being is this "Full Sequence" is flat out torture porn. The first one did at least have some kind of back story, as little and hardly touched as it was. It was the doctor who separated Siamese twins and was now obsessed with the idea of a human centipede. Pretty cut and dry. This one has some creepy fat dude jerking off to the first film? No thanks.

I'll probably see it just because I saw the first and because the buzz is so high, but I won't be seeing it in theaters. They're only playing it in one theater in Colorado too and it's the expensive indie theater downtown. No thanks once again.

Paranormal Activity 3 - New clips surface

Two new clips for Paranormal Activity 3 have surfaced online via Bloody-Disgusting.

Personally, I am still not a fan of the PA films. I find them jerky, boring, and lame. But I must say these clips are pretty menacing. Looks like they are stepping it up.
Then again, I said that about PA2 and it was yet another 2 hours of watching people sleep, so you just never know with these movies.

More Dark Knight Rises photos of Selina Kyle *aka, Catwoman*

And apparently she is beating up muggers.

New photos of Catwoman, with ears, revealed for The Dark Knight Rises

New Pictures! Not too impressive yet, for me, but I trust Christopher Nolan. I think at this point it's safe to say the goggles we saw in the first teaser photo turn into the "ears."

The repeal of don't ask, don't tell

So that is officially gone. Now if you are a homosexual man or woman in the US military you can no longer be kicked out for being gay and they can't ask you to prevent you from enlisting.

I personally don't care. What I mean by that is, who really cares if gays are serving in our military? Sure there are going to be those out to make a statement and be as flamboyant as they can be just because they can, but that isn't all of them. I don't even think that's close to all of them. DADT did have its positives (admit it) but it did also have negatives. Positives being people shut up about it. What gay people fail to realize is most others don't give a rat's ass if they are gay. I don't. If someone tells me they are gay I say "oh ok" and move on about my business. Homosexuals are the ones who make it a big deal, imo, and they fail to realize it. They just blame the so-called "fear" on straight people being "homophobic" which is a fucking crock of shit.

But enough about that... what sparked this is that Airman that is all over the internet now. He has been making videos basically counting down the repeal of DADT during his deployment overseas. Today was the big day so he felt the need to record himself calling his dad to tell him he's gay. Retarded? Why, yes it is.
I'm happy he finally found the time to tell his family and whatnot, but really? How are you going to post such a private, personal conversation on the internet obviously hoping for his dad to freak out. It was almost like "I haven't slept all night and I want to call my dad, omg he's going to disown me and I wanted it on tape so I can put it on YouTube to show people do really hate gays." Good way to become an internet sensation if you ask me. I saw the link to his video on Yahoo and MSN alongside that one Naval officer who married his partner at midnight in Vermont.

Like I said, I don't care if gays are in the military. To me a good soldier is a good soldier; man, woman, gay, or straight. If they can do their job and do it well then who cares who they sleep with at night. I have a feeling there will be those who will try and be radical activists for the cause but at the same time I don't think the military will stand for that. Just because they can't kick you out doesn't mean they can't take other measures. Who knows, a lot of people might be scrubbing toilets if they aren't too careful. With victory comes cockiness. I hope everyone remembers that.
