Gome of the Week
Are we so bored and semi-retarded as a society that this is the best new fashion statement the bros can come up with?
Makes me miss the refined elegance of Oakley Blades nestled tightly on top of a crispy crop of spiked brohair.
Yeah, that's what they call it.

Radiology Art - A winning combination.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Street Asylum (1990)
Before director Gregory Dark blessed us with such classics as Hootermania, The Creasemaster, and The Creasemaster's Wife (not to mention the erotic exploits of the oft-overlooked Animal Instincts trilogy), he gave us this gem, a tale of cops-gone-crazy that involves a poorly developed (plot-wise) mind control scenario.
When you think of Wings Hauser and G. Gordon Liddy teaming up in a story about spine implants programmed to make otherwise decent cops into raving killing machines/hooker rapers, you think of one thing: Oscar gold. Alas, it was not to be. But now that we can see the director's cut of this gritty crime drama, we can perhaps see Dark's original vision. Or maybe somebody could. I couldn't.
The cover of this movie is entirely misleading, as LIddy's character is human, not a cyborg who gets half of his face ripped off to expose his robot innards. But, not the first time I've been burned by false promises on the cover of hastily made VHS tapes. This film ended up being a little better than I thought it might be, but not much. Liddy's barely in it, which is a good thing, and Wings Hauser does a good job of acting like he doesn't have an abnormally gigantic skull.
As with any good corrupt cop story, you've got your "who will police the police" scenario, and like any good b-movie, questions like that are neither addressed nor answered. But, if you've ever wanted to see Liddy get fried on a satellite dish (he does seem to have a lot of enemies), this is the film for you.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
The Payne Family - Features David (196?)
If there's one thing a teenage boy loves, it's having his awkward school portrait slapped on the front of the LP he made with his family. Add this to the heartfelt handwritten letter from his sister that adorns the back, detailing his struggles with his voice changing, and you've got yourself a recipe for this kid remaining a virgin until he's at least 42.
Of course, David's interests are in Jesus, so maybe he doesn't care about such things. Although when he sings "The Old Rugged Cross Made the Difference," I just don't feel like he means it. Maybe I'm wrong.
