First, I want to share Patton Oswalt’s reaction to the Obama birth certificate bullshit:
Why won't the White House release the results of the sticking-a-hot-wire-in-a-dish-of-Obama's-blood test? WHAT ARE THEY HIDING?—

With that out of the way, I’ve got two fun pieces of vaguely me-related blogging news! First off, The Mike of From Midnight, With Love recently wrapped up his very fun, drawn-out “MARCH MIDNIGHT MADNESS” competition; you can go there to read all about how 64 movies went in and only 1 came out. I participated in the voting for most rounds, and can happily say that the ultimate winner, The Thing, was my pick to win pretty much ever since Carnival of Souls was eliminated.
Second, you (yes, that’s right, YOU) can buy the 366 Weird Movies 2010 Yearbook for only $7 or so on Amazon! It’s bursting with a wide range of short, cool reviews by the 366 Weird Movies crew (myself included, talking about Splice and Peacock), covering 2010 theatrical, DVD, and Blu-ray releases. Plus it has an index of Certified Weird movies! Really, what’s not to love? So if you want to read about recent weird movies in solid book form—you know, in case the Internet dies or something—this is definitely your best bet!
