The No. 1 rule when dealing with disaster is to figure out which rules you need to break. Rules are designed for when everything is working. A democracy is based on trust. BP has proved it can’t be trusted.

The government needs to change the game and make this a punitive effort. The government has been too friendly to oil companies.

The government should immediately freeze BP’s assets and start to charge the corporation — say $100 million — each day the oil flows. The money could be held in a fund that U.S. government draws on to take care of the people along the Gulf Coast and pay the states for doing the cleanup.

Next, BP and the government bureaucrats who broke a law and put the public at risk need to go to jail.

OK, it’s a good song, and I love the video and all, but how am I supposed to do The Fishstick to this?

An awesome demo from Black Sun Entertainment. They’re apparently looking to turn this into a feature film trilogy. I can only hope someone gives them roughly $1bn to do so, because I can’t wait.

The Premise as outlined on the website is “The story of an unlikely and troubled teen forced from his home planet across the galaxy on an epic journey. Eventually to return reborn as the freedom fighter known as Azureus.”

Sounds like a decent framework.

They toot their own horn a bit, but I can’t say I disagree.

“This is how an action scene should look like. No shaky-cam to make up for lack of decent stunts!”
