That Yellow Bastard

Just a reminder:

When Prophet Muhammad (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) was travelling on the road with his cousin, Al-Fadl ibn Abbas, a woman stopped him to ask him a question.  The woman was very beautiful, and Al-Fadl couldn’t help but stare at her.

Seeing this, Prophet Muhammad reached out his hand and turned his cousin’s face away.

He didn’t tell the woman to cover her face.

He didn’t tell her to change her clothing.

He didn’t tell her that her appearance was too tempting or indecent.

He averted his cousin’s impolite stare.

“The Gravel Road”
The Village (2004)

One of my favorite score pieces in recent memory.


Our film critic Asawin Suebsaeng reviewed the new Twilight movie this week, and this is the only note he managed to take during the entire screening.


President Barack Obama Riding a Killer Lion by Artist Jason Heuser

President Barack Obama rides his faithful / vicious lion while showing off his Star Wars Jedi and archery crossbow skills in artist Jason Heuser’s killer new Presidential illustration. 11” x 17” and 24” x 36” prints of his original and variant designs are available to purchase at Jason’s epic art store on Etsy.

I really love the Rampaged Reality love on the stock of his crossbow. The RR logo adds a menacing 1,000 x Damage!

Leonard McCoy had his mind blown thanks to his run in with Ratchet, the Autobot medic / ambulance. Artist Marco D’Alfonso created this hilarious mash up for Comic Book Resources’ new “The Line It Is Drawn #98 - Comic Book & Star Trek Characters” theme.

Dammit, Jim! I’m a doctor, not a Transformer!

Another Follow Up of the Day: The National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO) has sided with the MPAA in its decision to reject The Weinstein Company’s request to lower the rating of the film studio’s bullying documentary from an R to a PG-13 so it could be used as an educational aid.

Bully received an R rating from the MPAA for “some language.”

If The Weinstein Company makes good on its threat to set aside the rating system, NATO’s President and CEO John Fithian said in a statement, “I will have no choice but to encourage my theater owner members to treat unrated movies from The Weinstein Company in the same manner as they treat unrated movies from anyone else.”

The would mean branding Bully an NC-17 movie, prohibiting anyone under the age of 18 from viewing it.

Responding with its own statement, The Weinstein Company called the treatment of Bully as an NC-17 film “unconscionable, not to mention unreasonable.”

The statement continued: “In light of the tragedy that occurred yesterday in Ohio, we feel now is the time for the bullying epidemic to take center stage, we need to demand our community takes action.”

A petition posted to by a teenage victim of bullying calling for the MPAA to reverse its decision has racked up over 100,000 signatures since it was launched a three days ago.


This does not have NEAR ENOUGH notes. I cried within the first 10 seconds of watching this trailer. And then continued to bawl like a baby for the rest of it. Kudos to the Weinstein Company for taking a stand on this.

The MPAA is, once again, on the wrong side of every issue. I just put on a hat so I could take it off for the Weinstein Company.
