Dear young people who have Star Wars prequel nostalgia: Stop it

Yes, this time we tackle the totally new question of which Star Wars movies are better. I heard there might have been a little bit of a discussion about this subject pre-apocalypse, but it's not been explored here in the post-apocalypse. In fact, I haven't given it the tiniest bit of thought before. This is all… » 2/26/14 8:17am 2/26/14 8:17am

Adult contemporary radio stations in two cities, Slough and Guildford, developed Sorayama-esque android DJs, Twinkle and Talon, who wore silver bodysuits, silver hair and (in the case of Talon) a chrome bustier.… » 3/26/08 4:00pm 3/26/08 4:00pm

Cyber Sex Doll Secretly Craves Bloody Death

A lonely nerd can't tell the difference between a psychopathic Russell Crowe and a chess-playing sex-bot, and that spells death for dozens of innocent people (including the sex-bot, who secretly longs to be murdered). There's probably a lesson in this clip — the most freaktastic scene from 1995's Virtuosity — but I'm… » 3/17/08 12:02pm 3/17/08 12:02pm
