More Milla Jovoich? I'm all for that!

Amusing stuff this week, but it needs more orphans!

The part about Microsoft's restaurant made me laugh. A job well done, sir.

Thanks guys, feel free to discuss your favorite orphan recipes in this thread!

really?
Well, I like it when they're slice up into chunks and placed into a casserole. nothing like leeting the gravy juices soak into the meat... add a few dumplings, some sliced carrots, so peas, other assorted veggies, etc.
then leave for 12 hours on a low simmer.

wait. you are talking about cooking orphans, right?

Why include orphans? Poor bastard's (well.. I use the term loosely) have hard enough time as it is, they don't need more attention brought upon their bane.

It's contextual. Orphans are a typical figure for the stimulation of pity because the archetypal 'happy childhood' includes two parents and a stable home environment. To have lost both and to be alone, per se, is something we sympathise with. A bit like the grieving lover. In news it can increase the sorrow of an article, turning it into something horrible because these people have already lost so much. And so on.

Nigeria apology... good story.

I was as flabbergasted by that as by kazakhstan suing borat.

But then it's not journalism, it's spin. Your using these poor orphan's dilemmnas to shape a readers interpretation of a peice of information or news.

So infact, you pre-emptively create context for the reader rather than them allowing their own context to shape their opinion.

If there are orphans involved, let there be orphans in the writing of it. All media presents a context and a bias because to simply write the facts of "x-people/person did a to z" would never a) sell or b) make use of a language we have. They're not people fighting people, they're terrorists and Peacekeepers, or freedom fighters and invaders. The orphans get caught in the middle.

I assure you, there is no journalism going on anywhere in this thread.

The Sony rep must have realized what he was saying was utter balls....

God I hope that Resident Evil film doesn't suck
Not like it could be much worse the the first one though
Correct me if im wrong but wasn't RE about dudes killing zombies too??

if sony ever made a motion sensitive device you know the porn industry would make a dildo shaped motion sensitive device with of course a great vibrate setting hell the only reason that they havent done so with the wii is because nintendo would never let a porn company do it

In the middle, either side of where their parents should be? See?! you've already made me feel bad about debating the subject by bringing up the sodding cannibalist's delicacy and their personal issues. Hell, it COULD even cause readers to have inner crisis about tangential political and social issues. And really, if they're reading the news do they need more issues and self-depricating revelations?

So what are we calling remakes reboots because it sounds better. Or is it a reboot because the movie being remade is less than 10 years old?

"But to really get the full experience, you need a friend to play with. Really, there's nothing better than a having a couple of friends over, drinking some beer and playing with your balls."

Just make sure you don't forget to bring yours, because playing with your friend's balls is rarely as satisfying.

I only really found the Nigerian bit any funny, and it was a little obvious.

Didn't they already do that with the periphreal that came with the original Rez? LOL.

You sir need to get off the internets. It is no place for "feelings". LOL.

How about instead of using Milla Jovovich they go with the story and characters from the games? It's wacky enough to be interesting. People stuck inside a mansion and trying to find a way out. Giant spider. Giant snake. That would probably be a good movie.
I suspect that when it's done, Degeneration will still be the best RE movie.

Ah, those crazy, crazy crazy Nigerians, what will they think of next?

This statement not intended to offend any actual Nigerians, and does not reflect the real view of Armitage Shanks. Nigeria is a brilliant country with a rich cultural history and almost no internet scammers or people pretending to be princes.

Awesome saying of the day!

OT: What do they mean about balls?

Anderson and co. have stated that RE Begins is slated to feature not just Jovovich but another talented actiontress. Because if there's one thing that's better than one hot chick shooting zombies, its two hot chicks running away from explosions.

People like drama because it brightens up their otherwise dull, repetitive lifestyle. It's why tabloid "journalism" is so successful after all. The only people who would feel really guilty about orphans are those who have caused them. Why, did you kill a couple of parents some time? Huh? HUH?

"We want to rework the series into something that is similar to Batman Begins in terms of profit margin, but keeping with the overall theme of the original Resident Evil: A game about a hot chick killing zombies and explosions."

Haha at first reading I thought that was talking about killing explosions. I hadn't realized that the new resident evil would be entitled Resident Evil: Boom Stifiling Zombie Sillyness. Though, if one has to play with SONY's balls to play the next Sheva character...

I should have been more specific in the article. Here is a picture of sony's new wand:

Nah, This is just saying "Hai Nintendo! Don't mind if we completely take your idea with it a mix it with an inyourendo?!"

I do like the idea of more RE movies as long as they get rid of the ugly ass main actress. She is crap. Complete and utter.
They should just kill her off, stop the stupid psychic cyborg whatever the feth she is storyline and just focus more on decent characters. RE 2 had Jill Valentine for christs sake. She was a minor character in her own freaking series!

Holy shit... The 4th movie will have Jensen Ackles as Leon! Kill off Mila NAO! That was we can have 100% pure Dean goodness! Yes, I have a total man crush on him. He is just pure awesome.

Most of the ball sentences just sounded.. wrong. "Having a few friends come over, have a few beers, and play with your balls!" Didn't he realize it himself?

"It's a story about a lone woman who lost both her parents in a tragic murder and vows to use her great wealth and martial arts prowess to fight zombies," Anderson read aloud from a Madlib he had just filled out minutes ago.

"We want to rework the series into something that is similar to Batman Begins in terms of profit margin, but keeping with the overall theme of the original Resident Evil: A game about a hot chick killing zombies and explosions."

Dude, this movie sounds awesome! Boobs, guns, and 'splosions? I'm all for that!

/sarcasm? Nope. That's actually true. I wouldn't mind seeing Jovovich again. She's f-cking sexy.

Another wonderfoul posting, I can't wait to get my sweaty fingers all over Sony's pink balls!

Depends on the friend and what accessories they have.

I believe there were also some "dudes" killing zombies, but really, if the film promises a "hot chick killing zombies and explosions" what more do you need? I'm very interested to see how they actually go about killing an explosion, for starters....

that was pretty funny but im confused what is this talk of balls?

These words bring to mind one name: Michael Bay. The rest is history.
