For those that are interested, the destructive symphony known as Megadeth has broken up after 20 years of scaring parents. This is apparently due to an injury sustained by founder and frontman Dave Mustaine that has caused serious nerve damage to his left hand and arm.

I don't know whether to be pleased or very disturbed.

OH MY GOD!! Clearly I'm dreaming... because if I'm not and that and this are real then the world may be getting too cool for me to handle. Not only did I see this today but I also saw huge Spider-Man displays at the grocery store, Hardee's, Wal-Mart, and Target... and if these surely aren't signs of a new world order of coolness then I don't know what is. (If anyone is curious I wear a medium in t-shirts...)

I'm quoting this straight from CHUD, which I don't like to do (make direct quotes I mean), but it was so shocking that I had to share it with you. It's about Dolph Lundgren...
"Born Hans Lundgren in Stockholm, Sweden, Dolph has a master's degree in chemical engineering from the University of Sydney and was awarded a Fullbright Scholarship to MIT. He also attended Stockholm's Royal Institute of Technology, Clemson, and Washington State and can speak Swedish, English, French, German and Japanese. On top of that, he is working on his third-degree black belt, won both the European and Australian full-contact karate championships and was team leader of the USA pentathalon team at the '96 summer olympics."
Holy crap.. all I can say is this guy should be ruling the world not making straight to video flicks... or maybe that's all part of his master plan.

Sweet jumping mugwumps! A really great comic (that I happened to enjoy) called The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is being made into a film. I was already excited about the fact that Sean Connery has signed on to play one of the lead roles, but I learned tonight that Eddie Izzard may also be playing one of the main roles in the film. God bless America.. or as Eddie would say "God dress America."
