Trailer: Dexter – 5. Staffel

Dexter wurde zwar von Human Target als meine Lieblingsserie abgelöst, nichtsdestotrotz bin ich schon sehr gespannt, wie es in der 5. Staffel weitergeht. Dank Twitch gibt es hier schon mal einen kleinen Vorgeschmack.

Buch-Trailer: NAGEL – Was kostet die Welt

Nach der Auflösung von Muff Potter, und seines Soloprojekts Freunde der Nacht/Ruhe, scheint sich deren Sänger Nagel vollkommen aufs Schreiben zu konzentrieren. Sein erstes Buch Wo die wilden Maden graben war eher noch ein Tourtagebuch, während es sich bei Was kostet die Welt um eine ‚richtige‘ Erzählung handelt.

Christopher Hitchens zu Mel Gibsons Tiraden

Aus Hitchens wöchentlicher Kolumne:

Every time Mel Gibson unburdens himself of a tirade against Jews or „n______s“ or uncooperative females, there are commentators on hand to create a mystery where none exists. When he produced The Passion of the Christ, which lovingly and in detail recycled the bloody myth that all Jews are historically and collectively responsible for the murder of Jesus, it was argued by many mainstream Christians that his zeal for the faith might be a touch lurid but that the film itself was mainly devotional. When he was arrested on the Malibu freeway and screamed abuse at a police officer to the effect that Jews were responsible for all the wars in the world, pundits convened on page and screen to speculate whether our Mel had too much to drink that evening. Not long ago, I watched him go completely bug-eyed on television at a Jewish interviewer who asked him about the latter incident. „You‘ve got a dog in this fight, haven‘t you?“ he hissed. And now, in the wake of a Niagara of cloacal abuse directed at the mother of his youngest child, in which we were spared nothing by way of obscenity and menace and nothing by way of paranoid and sexualized racism, there have been those who diagnose Gibson’s problem as a lack of anger management skills, combined perhaps with a touch of narcissistic personality disorder.
