That New Candidate Smell

Far be it for me to jump on any old bandwagon and rain ridicule on something that basically ridicules itself by default. . . but:


Yes, yes, staring resolutely forward into an audaciously hopeful future, as the aromatic tendrils of "Sex Panther" radiate off your newly-purchased and freshly-pressed Men's Wearhouse suit.

Rolling Stone. . . 60 percent of the time, it's quality journalism every time.

DISCLOSURE: Just so you know, I hated the movie "Anchorman." I seriously considered walking out of the theater while watching that steaming pile of cinematic hobo vomit. Still, some scenes stick with you, even from the world's worst movies, and the "Sex Panther" scene was one such anomaly. I'm not saying it was a particularly funny scene, but the idea of a cologne called "Sex Panther," made with bits of real panther--so you know it's good--just kind of has an eternal quality to it that you shouldn't feel ashamed to reference.

Goodness. He's... glowing.

What that actually reminds me of more than anything is that effect in anime, where a character glows as they gather their chi, then shout, "Sex Panther High Kick!" and send a bolt of kick-lightning surging toward their mortal enemy.

I was thinking along the lines of "Street Fighter," and the guy who gathers a ball of energy into his gut before sending said ball of energy at his opponent.

Like this:

Whoa. Apparently, Chun Li's come a long way:

You really shouldn't go to a theatre to watch a Will Ferrell movie, unless it's to do with Pearl.

It's kind of sad how, across-the-board, Pearl is a better actor than Ferrell

She's a natural, and she's funnier too!

anchorman is one of hte only movies i turned off because it was so bad. usually, i'll see almost anything through to the end, especially when you only have netflix and no TV and so it's the only thing to watch. but yeah, i turned it off, probably to stare at the wall or something more interesting.

and RS is so pseudo-intellectual; they really should avoid the attempts at seriousness on these kinds of topics. or - wait - is the cover graphic supposed to be funny?

on the other hand, a lot of teens and other newsphobic people probably only read publications like FHM and RS and watch the Daily Show for their news, so i think it's good that they're covering the election no matter how odd that coverage may be.
