F1: US Grand Prix 2012 - Ecclestone confirms Nov. 18 date

Formula One’s Bernie Ecclestone confirmed earlier reports of a revised 2012 F1 schedule, placing the United States Grand Prix on Nov. 18, 2012. The schedule, which contains numerous adjustments from the calendar issued in June by the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile, is not considered official until the World Motor Sports Council ratifies it at its meeting later this year. “I have been hoping for a late season race date since this project began and see this as a very posi...

30 Minutes Or Less Could Actually Benefit From Being About That Length, Unfortunately

I have been looking forward to 30 Minutes Or Less, the second movie from Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer, basically since it was announced. Fleischer and Jesse Eisenberg had teamed up for a cool and inventive action-comedy that received near-universal acclaim in 2009, and now they were doing it again for a buddy comedy about a pizza delivery guy who is forced to rob a bank. Oh, and Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride and Nick Swardson were rounding out the cast.  It sounded like it was going to be another fun flick from the former commercial and music video director.

So why didn’t I like it as much as I wanted to?

In this weeks episode, the boys find themselves in a silly and giggly mood due to a couple of glasses of Old Monk Rum. The ridiculousness commences from there and even ensnares Loond in mis-naming the great Troy Gregory as Paul Gilbert…yeesh. Loond brings a bevy of new records to the table to talk about from In Flames, Arch Enemy, Decapitated, and World Under Blood. In true J&L fashion, the guys touch on some classic old school bands…this time being Arizona’s Flotsam & Jetsam and Sacred Reich. So come along for the ride while we listen to some killer tunes and talk shop…Metal Shop.

METAL! - J&L

UFC 133: Ortiz vs. Evans Predictions

It's been two years since the Ultimate Fighting Championship debuted in Philadelphia with UFC 101, which featured Anderson Silva's crazy backpedaling KO of Forrest Griffin and B.J. Penn's dismantling of the Kenny Floridan Bandwagon Experience.  They return tonight with UFC 133, the organization's bi-annual snakebitten event that sees countless card changes due to circumstance and injury.

The night's card underlines two challenges that the UFC's parent organization, Zuffa, faces as the organization's popularity continues to balloon. The first is the aforementioned injury problem: over half of the card changed due to one competitor having to drop out, often late in the training process. That's the story of the main event, where up-and-comer Phil Davis suffered a knee injury and left the UFC without an opponent for Rashad Evans for the second time (Davis himself was something of an injury replacement for Jon Jones, who didn't end up being injured after all). Whether the intensity of training has doubled or the threshold between "fighting hurt" and "injury" has eroded, mixed martial arts' biggest spectacle is seeing more and more card changes, even (especially?) at the main event level. That makes it more challenge to sell and market fights, but the counter-argument is pretty simple: as long as those three important letters are on the poster, you know that someone will step up. In the case of UFC 133, that someone is former light heavyweight champion and future UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz.
