Oh, Kung Fury, not Kung Furry. I thought it was a movie about kinky people who dress up as animals and are also martial arts fans.

Honestly, that was a work that didn't even fill its original runtime. I'm pretty bewildered at this.

I thought Kung Fury was great. But the thing I always say about it is that it knew that it couldn't be any longer than it was, and if it had been stretched out to a feature film length it'd've been terrible.

I guess we'll find out.

Yeah. I didn't think it could have been a full ninety minutes. But Manborg worked, so who knows.

Agreed. Call your insurance agent or the customer service number and confirm your policy is up for discussion.

I drove past a small used car lot and saw Jerry Garcia polishing headlights. Looking ragged, but overall not bad for being dead for 20 years.

I think it would be great if society evolved to the point where everyone knows what kind of depravity everyone else is into and simply doesn't care. I don't know if that's possible.
