    So someone has developed a hiccup cure that looks a lot like a milkshake. Call me old fashioned, but the "OH MY GOD THERE'S A SHARK IN THE BOAT!" scare tactic has never done me wrong. And if that doesn't work I'll typically let weight lifters punch me in the stomach until I l... / Continue →

    Sadly, this would still probably be better than 90% of the video game movies out there. Although it can't compare to the film I made about Solitaire. I basically filmed myself having sex with two women at once. In retrospect, it wasn't really anything like Solitaire at all.... / Continue →
