You don’t know Jack


More famously known as Dr. Death, Jack Kevorkian passed away on June 3rd, 2011, one week after his 83rd birthday and as a result of a long-term fight against kidney cancer.  He was best known for publicly championing a terminal patient’s right to die via physician-assisted suicide; he said he assisted at least 130 patients to that end. He famously said “dying is not a crime”.

Whether readers agreed with his methods or not, his death does hit hard for both sides of the euthanasia debate. I personally found the ethics and moral debates related to this topic fascinating, so I must say I did follow his career to a certain extent.

If you would like to learn more about Kevorkian, I can recommend a great movie starring Al Pacino as Dr. Death himself. The title is “You don’t know Jack.”  And if YOU don’t know Jack, you NEED to see this movie.

What do you mean Flash Gordon approaching?


Here’s a blast from the past. All I can say is we’ve come a long way in terms of movie production, animation and special effects since 1980.

I remember watching this film as a kid and thinking it kicked ass. Now it looks like a bad Halloween party with that a weird blonde dude with no shirt crashed.

Stephen Colbert is awesome


This video is a little old but I just saw it today and thought it was excellent!
