Saluki Dunkeldog

A Beer For Every State #13 - Illinois

I tried this beer, brewed in Murfysboro, close to my parent's home town, after drinking some Goose Island and thinking it was just the worst. This is a dark beer, which I never was too big into when living in the South, but we'll see how that changes during my first Michigan winter. Almost reminiscent of a chocolate stout, and also the beer with the worst name so far. "How's it going Mitch?" "Awful - they had to lay off 30 of the guys down at the mill. I'll need a Dunkeldog to wash away the pain on this one."

Mutton Chops

Easy way to say “stay away ladies” without opening your mouth. Plus they can cover up hideous facial scars while housing tiny parasitic creatures.

Note: Lemmy and Wolverine are exempt from any anit-mutton chop snarkery.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

When I say that Rise of the Planet of the Apes is one of the best genre films of the year so far, I'm not monkeying around. The quality of the visual effects and motion capture performances will make you go bananas. You'll forget all about that horrible Tim Burton Planet of the Apes film from ten years ago, like... like... like so much thrown feces. Seriously though, Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a pretty solid flick. What it lacks in Heston, it makes up for in Lithgow.

Little Otik

A woman pretending a twig is her baby is how you say...creepy. The twig becoming alive, turning into a monster and eating the townsfolk adds up to excellent and enthralling creeptastic Czech cinema.
