I WOULD GO OVER TO THE DARK SIDE FOR ONE OF THESE BABIES
Force FX Lightsabers are the hottest collectible on the market. Full size lightsabers coming in three delicious flavors (I want purple; is anyone surprised?). What sets these babies apart from other lightsaber facsimiles is how they light up and make sounds just like a real lightsaber: power up, power down, humming and of course, battle strikes. Don't believe me? check out this mini movie and weep. At $120 bucks a saber, these things aren't cheap, but I'm already wracking my brains trying to remember if I have any relatives coming from the US who can get me one of them.
So Chino, which one do you want? heh.

''We had been shooting Charlie for about a month, I was beginning to get nervous because there weren't any phone calls. I called my agent and asked, Has no one called from the studio to complain or say, 'Hey, what's he doing?' or 'Hey, he's freaking us out?' And when she said no, I thought, 'Christ, I'm not doing enough! Something's wrong!' Then some of the studio brass came over to the set, and they were sitting in my trailer and I was all decked out as Wonka with the little bangs. And I just had to know. So I said, 'Okay, who was the first one, when you started seeing the dailies, that got a little worried?' And there was this beautiful 30-second silence. And [Warner Bros. president] Alan Horn finally said, 'Yeah, that was me.' I felt better instantly.''

Makikipag break break break ako
Masusuot ko na lahat ng gusto
Wala nang tatawagin kung nasaan ako
Kapag hindi ka kasama
Tapos ang problema

SODOMITES, MYSOGYNY AND MURDER, OH MY!
a wholesome little scene from Sodom & Gomorrah
The Brick Testament lovingly recreates various scenes from the Bible by using passages verbatim...... done with legos. Regale in the good book's views on man's superiority over women, slavery, and of course their favoritest people, homosexuals.
There's some pretty trippy quotes in there, which of course are cherry picked For the author's purposes, the same thing can be said for any bible beating homophobe uses the bible to justify their bigotry. If you are so unfortunate to encounter or perhaps be in a band with such a slimeball, you can tell them that the bible says a LOT about some other stuff as well that they may not agree with either.
