“Hurt” sung by Kermit the Frog

September 11, 2008

A few thing before people start complaining that this is a Johnny Cash song. “Hurt” was written by Trent Reznor, and recorded on Nine Inch Nails Downward Spiral album released in 1994. Johnny Cash covered the song shortly before his death and it appeared on Cash’s American Recordings IV: The Man Comes Around. Cash even said “Hurt” was the best anti-drug song he’d ever heard. Kermit the Frog even did his own version, and after watching the video below, you’ll agree with Cash’s sentiments.
NSFW language (1 word describing excrement) and also gratuitous Muppet drug abuse and 1 particularly frightening scene that shows the depths that Kermit has plunged to and what he’ll subject himself to for a fix.

Ughh…..Robocop sequel coming in 2010

July 27, 2008

MGM is ready to reboot its “RoboCop” franchise.

Darren Aronofsky has signed on to direct and David Self is penning a new installment about the hero whose tagline is “part man, part machine and all cop.”

“RoboCop,” which is being fast-tracked for a 2010 release, becomes the first potential tentpole to come together since Mary Parent took the reins of MGM in March. Aronofsky’s involvement has been one of the worst kept secrets, with rumors rampant in the blogosphere that “The Fountain” helmer was eyeing the project.

MGM is keeping the logline under wraps, but insiders say it will take the sci-fi vigilante classic in more of a noir direction.

More at Variety.  See the original 1987 Robocop trailer below featuring Jack Bauer’s sleazy brother and Red Foreman from “That 70’s Show.”
