Captain America, back in the world.

Here’s another tickler for The Avengers’ DVD release, this time a clip of Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, back in the world (current), and moping about all that he has lost.

Sometimes there’s a man, I won’t say a hero.

Thanks to Boingboing for highlighting the existence of this amusing documentary on the real Dude that the character of the same name was based on in the Coen Brothers’ movie, The Big Lebowski. It seems that The Big Lebowski has become more of a cult hit than I was aware, with its own cons and […]
