Six In The Morning: Hobbits And Unicorns

6-in-the-morning1 MISCELLANEOUS ACTION NEWS ROUND-UP GO!!! There was a terrible typhoon in the Philippines, climate change will lead to starving children, Conservatives are fucking up Canada’s international development agency, Canada continues to chase free trade with everyone everywhere, Rob Ford’s mayoral lingering is confirmed as expected, a photo of a doomed man is controversial, there’s a new oldest dinosaur, the University of Dalhousie’s puppy room is open and French men have shitty sperm.

2 WE HAVE VIOLENT NAZI GANGSTERS WHO CUT PEOPLE’S HEADS OFF NOW? Great, just what Saskatchewan needs. More here (alert: a video will play automatically.)

3 THAT EXPLAINS A COUPLE ZEROS IN MY PHONE BILL SaskTel to customers: whoopsies!

4 RETIRE THAT SUCKER Regina Pats alumni Jordan Eberle’s jersey will be retired tonight. in other hockey news, blah blah lockout yakkity yak blah.

5 IT’S A KIRIN, NOT A UNICORN YOU MEDIA DUMBASSES A popular recent news story out of North Korea finally gets some intelligent scrutiny.

6 THE HOBBIT: IT’S ALL RIGHT The early reviews are in and the Hobbit is apparently just okay. No one seems to like the 48 frames per second gimmick, though. Annoyingly, prairie dog will NOT have a review in the next edition because stupid Warner Bros. stupid Vancouver press screening isn’t until stupid Wednesday next week (Jorge moved to Vancouver a few years back and it’s been verrry convenient for getting into movies early). I’m sure there’ll be a review in Verb, though–their critic seems to see everything before their press deadline even though that seems impossible. Maybe he’s made of magic! Here’s a trailer for the new movie.

  1. No one comments on the White Boy Posse? This is why I hate answering my door:

    “Police say gang members killed Lorry Santos in September by mistake while trying to break into the Saskatoon drug market; they had the wrong address.”

    See, this is when you need to take all those resources forcing us to undress and empty out our orange Fanta at the airport and redirect them into actual gang violence terrorism.
