Les Hypocrites

So where have all the 911 calls been concerning the Max Pacioretty hit on Kris Letang? Where are all the indignant outcries for justice ringing from North of the Border? Has the Crown been heard from yet? The investigation, surely, is under way.

Right?

Right?

This is, I assure you, the final bit of evidence anyone will ever need that Montreal Canadiens fans’ and the city itself are as fraudulent a bunch of total ninnies that has ever walked this planet. Most of us always knew this to be the case but now even the most neophyte observer, from a hockey perspective or any other, will be forced to agree.

Zdeno Chara was investigated for 9 months for a hockey hit that was far less purposely severe than what Pacioreety laid out on Kris Letang the other night. The NHL agrees, as witnessed by the 3-game suspension. Where is the outcry now from Les Habitants? Eh?

There is none.

Game over, Montreal.

You lose.

The second episode of Life’s Too Short, featuring a Johnny Depp appearance, is perhaps the single funniest episode of a half hour sitcom ever recorded.

What If Willy Wonka Was An Underground Gene Pervert

Only Warren Ellis could come up with a concept like that. Willy Wonka. Underground. Gene Pervert. It reads like excellent music.

Same folks who did the Grant Morrison film, Talking With Gods, are working on an Ellis doc called Captured Ghosts.

I never expected his voice to sound like that. Thought it would be rather gravelly and rough.

Label as “must see” cinema.
