The Weirdest Calendars of 2010


reppin' the 803

(803): What time do you think the pilgrims started drinking? I want to be as accurate as possible.

(803): I just got hit by a car. I'm fine; I'll be to the bars in about 15

(803): it always starts out as a suggestion then three hours later I have cum in my eye.

(803): Reach down the front of your pants and feel around for a while. When you find your balls, leave the library and meet me at the bar.

there's going to be a book too, so keep your eyes peeled.


I've been wanting my parents to see this one particular episode of the Boondocks for a while. It's called Return of the King, and it's fucking awesome.
When Martin Luther King comes out of a coma after 32 years and finds himself thrust into the 21st century and life in the post-September 11 era, his "turn the other cheek" philosophy quickly takes him from beloved national hero to despised terrorist sympathizer.

It was orginally aired a few years ago, and amid much controversy. Cartoon Netword defended it's cartoonist, issuing a statement:
"We think Aaron McGruder came up with a thought-provoking way of not only showing Dr. King's bravery but also of reminding us of what he stood and fought for, and why even today, it is important for all of us to remember that and to continue to take action."

The episode eventually won the Peabody Award. It's worth a peak. The full free version can be found by following the link.


I'm pretty excited for this new game, Bayonetta. I keep seeing commercials for it. Wikipedia says it's:
an action game for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, directed by Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe video game series creator Hideki Kamiya at Platinum Games in cooperation with publisher Sega. Set in a fictional city in Europe, the game centers on its title character Bayonetta, who uses pistols and magical attacks to defeat enemies. The game has five difficulty settings; its two easiest settings contain a game mode playable with only one button, similar to a mode used in Devil May Cry. Its developers designed its characters with modern style and fashion in mind, and composed for it a largely upbeat and feminine soundtrack.

Bayonetta is a single-player, third-person 3D action game. Its combat system is similar to that of director Hideki Kamiya's previous title, Devil May Cry.[3] The player controls a witch named Bayonetta, and using both melee and long ranged attacks, complex combo strings, and multiple weapons, is encouraged to explore ways to dispatch angelic enemies with as much flair as possible. Special commands or actions are woven into events, finishes, executions, and unique "Torture combos" in which Bayonetta summons a variety of devices to deal devastating blows to her enemies. Such devices range from guillotines to iron maidens. Bayonetta also has unique but limited abilities that her enemies do not possess, such as "Witch Time", which activates when the player makes a well-timed dodge to an attack. This temporarily slows time to allow Bayonetta to inflict massive amounts of counter damage before the enemies can react.

The player can double jump for extra height, perform evasive backflips, and destroy background objects and doors. Camera views can be rotated, enemy targets can be locked on, and weapons can be switched during play. With unlockable transformations, the player can make Bayonetta become a panther or one of various other living creatures to enhance her abilities. Lollipops can be used to heal her. Many enemies and objects drop halos, which resemble the rings from Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog games, when destroyed; the player can collect the halos to buy upgrades and weapons.The player can also use enemy weapons, either to directly attack or as props for movement. Bayonetta's strongest attacks transform her hair into giant boots, fists or monsters that assault the enemy.

The song that plays in the ad is what gets me though. It's called "In for the Kill" by the group La Roux who I'm a really big fan of at the moment. There's a remixed version that Skream did of the song which I really like, which you can check out if you like. Though, if you're going to look into La Roux, you should listen to I'm not Your Toy and/or Bulletproof.

Speaking of La Roux, check out this picture of Elly.

I saw this and the first thing I thought was "holy shit, i've seen that face makeup before." My friend Drew has this really sweet Dead Weather poster, and it took me forever to find the picture, but I finally did, so you too might make comparison.


Cityrag has provided us with a collection of what they're calling the Weed of the Year, as well as a collection of badass homemade bongs.
