Dear Mac Users... Shut The FUCK Up!

Okay, you fuckers are goddamn annoying. In fact, you are appearing little different from a religious cult. A nice majority of homes have a computer of some sort, but only a certain minority are saying to everyone they know, "Own a computer like mine." These people are Mac users. Guess what, this is almost no different from, "Join a faith like mine." Sure, product recommendation can be a good thing, but when you are telling someone driving a 1980 Ford Pinto that they should "invest" in a BMW (unrealistic comparison of PC vs. Mac), you are an arrogant, materialistic fuck. Here is a nice quote from The Best Page In The Universe:

Ever notice how most Mac users are skinny? It's because of all the calories they burn because they can't shut the fuck up about how great their Macs are. What is it about Apple that makes its users unable to shut their mouths? Everywhere I go, there's another asshole with a Mac preaching about how much better Macs are than PCs. They regurgitate lines directly from Apple's marketing campaign, like "it just works."

Now I am not saying that Mac sucks, it doesn't. I just find them next to useless. Software support used to be worthless, now it's getting better, but is still not very good.

I will now tell a personal story. An old roommate bought an iMac notebook. During this time he was just like all the other Mac users, telling me it is time to get a Mac. I played with his iMac a bit. It seemed nonsensical to me. I then asked, "Well, what can I do with it?" He told me I can do this cool scroll thingy for my programs. Well what fucking good is that when there is jack shit for programs? Then everyday after work where would I find him? In my room, on my Windows machine.

Now why would a devout Mac user spend all his time on a Windows machine? That is because he can actually do shit on it. Seriously, have you fuckers even got Starcraft on that thing yet? Yeah, okay, well at least you have that... after waiting a fucking year for it after PC(and Blizzard actually likes Apple).

Granted, software for the Mac is starting to improve, but this machine is still right next to useless for me and millions of other people, so until Apple becomes more affordable and versatile, put your smug fucking, apple glowey logo panel loving asses in your 100% leather executive office chairs in front of your white (or faggoty-ass neon) computer and be as useless as your computer and shut the fuck up!

Predators (Predator 3) New Director

Earlier today AICN reported on the new director for Predators, the third Predator movie (those AvP movies don't count, fuck them right in the ass). That director being Neil Marshall, who did Dog Soldiers, The Descent, and Doomsday. I love each of those movie in different ways.

I was then disappointed a few hours later to see Harry practically debunk what I had read earlier. Harry let everyone know that, yes, Neil Marshall was in the running, but the running was 7 directors. The others were not specified, and yes, I am curious who they are. I loved The Descent. Once I first saw Neil Marshall as a potential director for Predators, it seemed perfect.

I do not have any idea who any of the other directors may be, but I really hope Neil Marshall gets it. If not, Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes, Mirrors), whom may or may not be in the running, but I am guessing he is.

I have quite a bit of faith in the Robert Rodriguez script and I highly anticipate it. Any thoughts?

Natalie Portman On Her V For.... What????

This is fucking hilarious. Thanks to my old vocalist, Nick, who pointed it out to me.

Nice One Disco'tute, I Hope You Fucking Burn For This One!

I get home and open my YouTube subscriptions and holy fuck! Many of the people I subscribe to have mirrored a video from DonExodus2, whom is one of the best evolution education channels. Apparently, the Discovery Institute (DI) filed a copyright claim against DonExodus2 for a video he posted of an interview with Casey Luskin on Fox News, which is actually property of Fox News, not the DI, which is illegal and is protected by Fair Use. Here is the video on that:

PZ Myers already has this as well. And here is the video he's referring to in the previous video:

This video was a Mirror from Rebecca Watson because DonExodus2's original video was taken down.

Madonna A Pantera Fan?!?!?

I don't know what the fucking deal is here, but it appears to be Madonna finishing up a song of hers and breaks out into A New Level by Pantera. Supposedly a tribute to Dimebag Darrell.

I even checked up on this. I originally could not tell if that was really Madonna due to shitty quality, but the lyrics at the end of her song made it easy to find that it was actually her and the song is called Hung Up.

A little more searching and it turns out, not only am I a year behind the times, her guitar teacher was a guy that toured with Prong. So my guess, since the intro riff of A New Level is ungodly fucking easy, is that this was one of the earlier riffs he taught her and she liked it.

Regardless what happened or the reasoning, this is pretty fucking awesome. I don't know if Madonna is a Pantera fan, but I am guessing not necessarily. I've never been a Madonna fan, or a pop fan for that matter, but I've also never hated her (well, I hate that Kabbalah horseshit). With this I have an even greater respect for her, being one of the biggest pop stars in the world, acknowledging one of the better guitarists of human history to a live audience.

Maybe I Will Reconsider Having Kids...

... as long as it comes with one of these:

"Because let's face it... he's gonna drive you crazy and you're going to have to throttle it." Amen!

Star Wars: The Old Republic E3 Trailer IS Online

Update... here it is!

I just happened to remember to turn on G4TV when I got home today knowing the E3 Conference is going on. There were a bunch of guys dressed up in Jedi robes holding lightsabers. Not even a minute after turning on my TV they showed the world premiere cinematic from the upcoming MMO The Old Republic. Holy shit was it fucking beautiful and full of ass kicking.

You see a ship flying toward Coruscant then cut to the Jedi Temple. Then an individual in a cloak and a Twilek are entering the temple. They look up and nod to a bounty hunter, who is haning out a couple floors up outside. The bounty hunter then flies up (like Boba Fett) several floors and sneaks inside the temple.

The two individuals walk into the temple and Jedi approach them. Cut to the bounty hunter that takes out a couple Jedi and looks at a holocron of the ship we saw flying toward Coruscant. Back to the main hall of Jedi, behind the two individuals that ship is flying a crash course into the Jedi Temple. The ship crashes into the main hall in a similar fashion to Starkiller taking down a Star Destroyer in The Force Unleashed. It stops right behind the cloaked individual and a wide door opens. A red lightsaber ignites. Beat. About twenty more lightsabers ignite. That was fucking awesome!!!

Then dozens of Jedi and Sith fucking go at it. The first cloaked individual was, of course, a Sith and he faces off against who appears to be the head Jedi. The action and saber battles are amazing. The entire clip looks fucking great. The clip ends with the head Sith & Jedi in a jump toward each other and land in front of each other, someone got stabbed. Then cut to the ground, a lightsaber drops. It is disengaged with smoke coming out of the hilt and a nice green tint to let you know who was stabbed.

Keep checking G4's The Old Republic site. The trailer should show up fairly soon.
