Bollywood Robots and Sunday Linkstew

I finally got to see Endhiran/Robo/Robot (2010) via Blockbuster On Demand. Despite the lack of sub-titles, dubbing or more than 5% of the dialog being in English, this is easily one of the best movies I’ve seen in the last year.

Source: Gunman Had Mental Issues. Well, as long as there’s “no link to domestic or international terror”, I guess there’s nothing to see here, then. Until he started shooting people he was one of those “responsible gun owners” we hear so much about. I mean he only had 1000 rounds on him, what’s the fuss?

Awww, geez! Notorious skid-mark Alex Jones got tossed from the hotel hosting this year’s meeting of the Bilderberg conference. He must have gotten too close to the TROOFS!
