Want Vincent Gallo to be your baby daddy?

In weird news, the actor Vincent Gallo will sell his sperm on his website for cash. As if that wasn't crazy enough, he's a racist mofo to boot. I think it's funny that he assumes a chick walking down to her local bar for sperm isn't the better option. Vincent looks like a scrawny junkie and his acting is even thinner. Although, for a crazy dude, getting an actress to perform fellatio on film (in "The Brown Bunny") was genius.

Fan Fiction movie trailers

I've posted fan films before when they're of really good quality. So, that another site came up with a Top 9 List of the Best Fan Fiction Film trailers is pretty cool. I gotta disagree that the Gremlins taking over other movies and Lego Batman are the very best (personally I think the Thundercats trailer I posted previously was better!), but it's still cool to see creative people taking a shot and showing their talent.

Pop culture is all around you.

Thought this was cool. A user submission map tracking various spots made "famous" in pop culture. It's "Where It's At." I'm surprised there's not more entries.

McNair not a hero. Not much of a father either?

I thought an article/editorial on the death or murder of Steve McNair made a good point about the America's tendency to "hero-ize" less than moral celebrities once they've died:

What we do know is that McNair had four sons. And based on the observations and comments of Kazemi's neighbors and neighbors at the condominium McNair rented, McNair spent so much time with Kazemi over the past few months that people assumed they lived together.

You see, this is my problem with McNair, with American men as a whole.

We shirk our responsibilities as fathers. We don't have time for it. We think it's a part- or no-time job. We think our career is more important. We think charity work is more important. We think some young tail is more important.

We foolishly believe we're unnecessary in the rearing of children. This mindset must die.

It's also a good highlighting that state of being a father in this country has been downsized in importance over the past couple of decades. No longer respected or even feared in most households, a father is simply a sperm donor in this day and age. Sad.
