AMERICAN IDOL 2009 (Season 8)–Current Las Vegas Odds For The Final Four

Category: Movies/TV,Music — jerry @ 7:35 pm

Sorry about not getting this up earlier. I think the Bodog site was still scratching its head over Lambert’s being in the Bottom Three this week. Actually, the argument could be made that this is a little wakeup call to his fans not to take for granted that he is going to be a shoo-in. Matter of fact, I’m starting to think it’s even money between he and Gokey. Glad to see Allison doing well.

Here’s the latest odds for the Final Four:

Adam Lambert 4/11
Danny Gokey 11/4
Allison Iraheta 15/2
Kris Allen 8/1

To make up for my lateness in getting this posted, here’s a special treat (I can’t stop puking):

Another Waterboarding Video

Category: Opinion — jerry @ 11:47 am

Because there are still some out there that don’t call this torture. This guy only makes it about 10 seconds. Waterboarding was known to go beyond a minute. God Bless America.

“Faith Fighter”–The Game

Category: Technology — jerry @ 5:42 am

From Mediawatch.org:

Representatives of several major religions have called for a game by radical developers Molleindustria to be removed from the internet because it is “deeply provocative” and “disrespectful”.

Faith Fighter is a punch-up game for one or two players which involves bouts between Jesus, Mohammed, Ganesh, Buddha, Budai, and God Himself. According to its developers,

Faith Fighter is the ultimate fighting game for these dark times. Choose your belief and kick the shit out of your enemies. Give vent to your intolerance! Religious hate has never been so much fun.

Douglas Miller, pastor of the Link Church in Birmingham:

This game is going out of its way to upset people and I think it should be taken off the internet.

Playing violent video games will ultimately affect your behaviour and this game is deeply offensive and provocative.

A spokesman for the Leicester-based Federation of Muslim Organisations:

In the current climate, this game can only create fear about religion. Having images depicting Muhammad in this way is also very offensive to our faith….[Rest of article]

So…wanna play?  Go here.  And be sure and give “Operation: Pedopriest” a try!
