When DVD commentaries go wrong...

...even the lousiest Hollywood hack can have his own movie these days, it seems. Witness some of the great pieces of work that are or have been eating up screen time in our theaters these days. Our moron pal Tom Green is back with various other folks in Stealing Harvard. Fear Dot Com desperately wants to be the next Psycho. Movies with depth like The Shawshank Redemption are frowned upon because they don't have enough dick or fart jokes. According to the producers and most of Hollywood, everyone should have positively gushed over Freddie Got Fingered. Yet for some reason which will forever remain a mystery to these morons (they'd lose a game of tic-tac-toe to a potato bug, I swear) it still flopped.

So what happens when these box office bombs go to DVD and get the obligatory commentary track? Well, you get Commentary Tracks of the Damned!!!

Sweet payback...

According to this article at CNN, Argenbright Security has been kicked to the curb. Argenbright employs about 40% of the airport security and service personnel in America's airports. I know for a fact thanks to my frequent run-ins with them during work-related travel that these guys handled security at Chicago -- and sucked more than a black hole. I feel sorry that it's going to lead to major layoffs by the company, but the way the employees stationed at O'hare acted I am starting to think that, well, they deserve it. Poetic justice and all that.

Let this be a lesson to whoever gets the mantle of "security provider" handled to them: treating travellers like shit and being completely lax in security leads to eventual removal and, I bet, the end of your company in the industry. You better look sharp.
