Despite what it may look like at the start, this is not a trailer for Mission: Impossible 6. Sure, there’s Tom Cruise, on a plane, in the middle of a huge action scene. But once the ancient evil lady starts walking around, it’s obvious this is something quite different. This is The Mummy.

In another example of how unpredictable 2016 has been, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association was able to resist the L.A. setting and musical charm of La La Land, naming Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight the Best Picture of the year instead—something even the stereotypically gruff and gritty New York Film Critics Circle was unable to do a few days ago. The L.A. critics weren’t even impressed by Manchester By The Sea, which was the runner-up in several categories but failed to win any awards of its own. Going back to Moonlight, Jenkins also won Best Director, star Mahershala Ali won Best Supporting Actor, and James Laxton won Best Cinematography.

Elsewhere, Adam Driver won Best Actor for his role in Paterson, Isabelle Huppert won Best Actress for both Elle and Things To Come, anime feature Your Name won Best Animated Film, and La La Land gets the Best ...

“Okay, so, now that we’ve time traveled...”

With a single eye roll, Dana DeLorenzo sums up the boundless, asinine storytelling of Ash Vs. Evil Dead. There’s nothing too weird, too cumbersome, or too crass for this show to handle--simply put, it’s in love with its own brazen stupidity. Ever since Bruce Campbell returned to the saw, showrunner Craig DiGregorio has joyously leapt from one genre convention to the next, subverting our expectations each time, even when he’s wrestling with concepts and situations we’ve seen again and again over the years. How? There’s really no short answer. It’s arguably been a healthy mix of clever writing, crude gags, lovable characters, jaw-dropping physical comedy, imaginative set pieces, and simple nostalgia. That last bit is fortunately something the series has been pretty self aware about, enough that whenever they do dip into the past, it’s ...

A spoiler warning for those who have yet to watch the episode, because this story is extra groovy.

Forget Evil Dead 4, this is even better. The second season of Starz’s “Ash vs Evil Dead” just rewarded us for all of our patience and has turned into a full blown prequel to Sam Raimi’s 1981 The Evil Dead and 1987’s Evil Dead II. Yes, the way you watch those movies will be forever changed after viewing tonight’s episode of “Ash vs Evil Dead”, which sets the stage for next Sunday’s season finale.

The promotional trailer for tonight episode, “Home Again”, revealed that Ash would be time traveling to stop himself from reading from the Necronomicon, but I was not expecting what would come next – and it’s the most fulfilling Evil Dead related story since Army of Darkness in 1992. Speaking of…

Before “Ash vs Evil Dead” turns into a prequel to The Evil Dead, there’s a delicious reference to Army of Darkness, which brings the series full circle and cements it in-canon. The references continue as this episode starts off as a heavy-handed homage to the slapstick comedy sequel, which isn’t allowed to be directly referenced (because of rights issues). What happens is that Ash again becomes possessed by a Deadite. Here, he teases the audience by threatening to lop off his leg (holy shit), but instead sucks out the demon venom, like with a snake bite. The madness continues when he realizes there’s a little demon brewing inside him, like in the insane Army of Darkness sequence with tiny Ashs playing a game of “Gulliver’s Travels” with the chainsaw-handed antihero. The nods continue as Ash swallows a tin of cinnamon, ingests a vile of hot sauce, and then helps it down with a heaping gulp of hot water. Out pops a demon that he smashes with a pan, but not before it can tell Ash to go fuck himself.

Here’s an exclusive online look!

This is when shit hits the fan, though, as Ash is forced back into the cellar that he knows only causes him pain. Deep in the cellar is the big reveal… Henrietta Knowby, the wife of Prof. Raymond Knowby, who brought the Necronomicon to the cabin, and the mother of Annie and (allegedly) Ruby (source). She’s chained to the wall and claims Raymond has gone crazy. Ash doesn’t believe her, joking that he’s onto the Deadite tricks. Before they can finish, they’re interrupted as Raymond returns to the cabin with a young girl, who is coming to help him decipher the Necronomicon. In the cellar, he traps her, forcing Ash to let Henrietta out of the shackles. This is when Raymond reveals his plan, to get the demon out of Henrietta and into this girl. Yes, Ash just fucked up again and hilarity ensues.

ASH VS EVIL DEAD via STARZ ASH VS EVIL DEAD via STARZ ASH VS EVIL DEAD via STARZ ASH VS EVIL DEAD via STARZ

Ending on a cliffhanger (check out our exclusive clip below!), this sets the stage for the finale. But even if this were the end of Season 2 I would feel like I got everything I’ve ever dreamed of from it. While Season 1 felt like it was trying to find an identity, Season 2 has zeroed in on it and pushed it to the extreme. There’s fan service and then there’s this, a set up that could leave us Evil Dead fans drooling in ecstasy.

I think my battery may be dying but not 100% sure.

Car is hard to start on cold starts. When the car is off, the battery only reads 11.7 volts but once I turn it on it's at the normal 13.7 volt range. When the vehicle is off is 11.7 volt range normal? Or do I need more volts to comfortably start the car? Pls halp.

Poor Ellie. Six years after The Last of Us’s ominous ending, she’s set out to become a budding folk musician but can’t seem to find anybody to jam with. And those dead bodies littered throughout the cabin aren’t helping.

So this week I want you to help Ellie find some band mates, or an audience worthy of her talents, or at the very least somewhere she can shred her heart out away from corpses. After all, what would Hall be without Oates? Everyone deserves an Oates!

Here’s a PNG file to help get you started, but feel free to clip your own from the recent trailer.

How To Upload Images — Instructions

1. Create your ‘Shop and save it to your desktop. Images must be at least 800 pixels wide. If they aren’t, you will be shot. I mean it!

2. Go to the bottom of this post

3. This brings up a comment window. Click

4. This brings up Click “Choose file” if you’re uploading your ‘shop from your desktop

5. Alternatively, you can upload the ‘Shop to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. Then paste the image’s URL into the field that says “Image URL.” Note: this must be the URL of the image itself, not the page where it is displayed. That means the URL ends in .jpg, .gif, .png, whatever.

6. Add editorial commentary and hit submit and your image will load. If it doesn’t, upload the image to imgur and paste the image URL as a comment. I promise I will look at it.

7. Large-size images may not upload properly, though we have seen some big-ass animated .gifs upwards of 5 MB. If you’re still having trouble uploading the image, try to keep its longest dimension (horizontal or vertical) under 1000 pixels, or the whole thing under 2 MB.

Heating Update

We have a lovely large pile of firewood outside, mostly oak.  So we can use that when we have energy to build a fire again.

Today someone arrived from a different heating/cooling company.  He said he'd be here on Sunday at 1:30 and it was literally 1:30 when he called to tell us he'd arrived.  Color me impressed.  He took measurements to see about replacing the piece of shit heat pump etc. with something better.  So we're considering options for that.  Also I got to spend an hour playing carpenter's helper while we measured the inside of the house to estimate square footage and discussed possibilities.

He mentioned having a laser measuring tape that he didn't have with him, which sent me into at least five minutes riffing on what could be done with that.  The hardest thing about that tech is just making something that will measure distance with light.  I looked these up and discovered that most of them just measure one line of distance, although there are laser levels with XYZ capability.  The higher end models will do calculations for area/volume, which is what I was thinking as useful.
What they need to do is add the XYZ feature, so that you have a handheld light-driven geometric computer.  You should be able to, for example, wave it at a furnace and get the dimensions of that device, wave it at a house and capture that volume, then correlate with stored parameters of available hardware to spit out which units would fit.  *wistful sigh*  In T-America, the simple laser measures are handed out like penlights as promotional swag.  Professionals can get the geometric version at a reasonable price.

Anyhow, for whomever has been reminding  the Universe to take care of the bard: thank you, it seems to be helping.  <3

I feel like this is a great deal. My question is when haggling for the price of a car where is the bottom limit for the price. From truecar.com this price is way below average people paid.

Since late October, Abigail Spencer has been in that special “zone” actors rarely enter, where they’re starring in two series airing simultaneously. On NBC’s Timeless, she plays Lucy Preston, a history professor enlisted for a series of daring trips through time, while on Sundance’s Rectify, she plays Amantha, a onetime murder suspect’s sister, who’s been […]

You find the strangest things at bankruptcy auctions. Like, say, PlayStation 4 development kits full of stuff from the now-closed developers of Sleeping Dogs.

United Front games shut down in October, and on Saturday morning an auction was held to sell a bunch of their stuff. Among the server gear and office equipment and lamps and TV sets was this PlayStation 4 dev kit (the hardware used to actually make games), bought by kaneda2004.

Older dev kits can be cool keepsakes for console collectors, but are rarely available outside development circles for a machine that’s still very much current and on sale (for legal purposes as much as anything). So this was a nice pickup, especially since this appears to be a NEO dev kit, newer models used so games can run nice on the PS4 Pro.

While buying the console is cool, potentially more interesting is what’s on it, since the PS4 wasn’t blank; there’s around 800GB of content on there sitting behind an expired DevKit license.

A screenshot of the console’s front menu, with the expired license notice.

kaneda2004 can’t access these files, as they encrypt once the license expires (they need to be renewed every 90 days for security reasons...like this). Rather than just sit on a mostly useless trinket that can’t play retail PS4 games, though, he’s reached out the members of Assembler Games, one of whom will be taking possession of the dev kit and trying to extract the files to see what was on them.

If it’s junk, then whatever. But If it’s something of interest, the aim is to get it off the HDD and preserve it, since whatever United Front were working on at the time of their demise would likely otherwise be lost for the ages.
