  • Apply directly to the forehead

    Finally someone’s made the world’s most annoying commercial make sense.

    Non-US readers may need to watch the original commercial first to get all the nuances. Yes, that’s a real commercial, and yes it airs during almost every break on CNN and Fox News.

  • IDF uber hax

    Israeli intelligence managed to hijack Hezbollah’s TV station and broadcast various taunts in Arabic. Sweet!

  • The IoT movie review

    “Clerks II”: It’s actually two different movies. The “Clerks II” part (roughly the first 40 minutes) miscalculates what made the original great on a scale not seen since Men in Black II. The other part, which I’ll call “Chasing Jersey Girl”, works much better and demonstrates that Kevin actually *has* grown up. Rosario Dawson is just adorable, and both Ben Affleck and Jason Lee have amusing cameos (Lee, unable to remove his My Name Is Earl facial hair on penalty of death, is a 3rd character rather than Brodie or Banky). But as usual the real star is Jason Mewes, who has a startling new power in his voice now that he’s sobered up. It’s unfortunate he has so few lines, although it’s a nice switch-up when he comes up with the key insight rather than Silent Bob.

  • “John Galt wept”

    Lileks shreds “The Ant Bully”. I did that just from the trailer, although the trailer was missing the whole “Communism is awesome!” point of the film.

  • Hurray for Pallywood…North

    Hezbollah has learned well from the Pallies how to maximize propaganda value.

    UPDATE: The site with the pictures may get slow – Rush Limbaugh was just mentioning it.

    Ready to hear one of the strongest pro-Israel speeches ever given by an American politician? Would you believe it’s by Dianne Feinstein? Anyway, check out zombie’s great coverage of the San Francisco pro-Israel rally, which includes a video and transcript of the speech.

  • Not a lone gunman

    A great article on the bizzare PC behavior of the authorities in the wake of the Seattle shootings.

    Rand Simberg has a related piece. He must be right, because the first commenter accuses him of being in thrall to the IZC.
