'I would make a KICK ASS Blofeld and you know it.'

Yes, we’re back. Sorry we’ve been away, but there’s been a lot going on. Should have one of these at least weekly for you and we’ll try to keep you up to speed. The theme is simple: there’s just too much pop culture shite going on to spend your life reading a website about pop culture news. We try to give it to you in capsule form. Swallow briskly. Enjoy.

  • Amazon‘s deal of the day is the Blu-Ray set of Superman: The Motion Picture Anthology. It’s at $55.99 today while stocks last, which is 57% off the list price. You can snag that here.
  • James Bond 23 finally has a title and appears to be happening. Skyfall will hit the UK and Ireland October 26, 2012, hitting stateside November 9, 2012. The story apparently has a spectre (not SPECTRE) from M’s past rising up to be dealt with. Which means Judi Dench returns (as does Craig), with Javier Bardem on board as the villain, and Naomie Harris (28 Days Later) and Berenice Marlohe (a French model) as the Bond girls. Also in the cast are Albert Finney (yes!), Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw (Perfume). Nice timing: the Variety article states that the announcement today comes on the 50th anniversary of the announcement that Sean Connery had been cast as Bond for Dr. No. Well played, Eon.

    Stuff: Dear Federal Courts: Please Kick the FCC Again. Love, America.

    FCC Ha!

    There’s a lot of entertainment news going on. You honestly don’t need to know most of it. And the bits you do need to know, you don’t need to know them the second they happen. You, after all, have a life. Rather than write up a bunch of individual posts you have to read, here’s one post with everything. Enjoy.

  • The Amazon deal of the day is the complete series of The Brady Bunch. While stocks last and today only–it’s 55% off. Regularly $129.99 and it’s $58.99. Thought you’d like to know. Snag it here.
  • The FCC and federal courts are in a tussle again about whether or not we’re all adults and can handle a bit of profanity. The good news is a federal court has overturned the FCC’s silly “fleeting profanity” fees. It’s simple, folks. If you don’t like the language, change the channel. When you had only three channels to choose from, then maybe you had a case for sanitizing everything. But now we have limitless choices. So get the fuck over it already. Read the whole article here.
  • Avatar is being re-released in cinemas August 27th. But don’t get excited–the difference this time is eight minutes of extra footage. Seriously, people. You own the DVD and/or Blu-Ray. It’s eight minutes. Come on. Source.
