With the launch of the final Harry Potter movie, in a franchise so full of itself they broke one book into two movies to make it seem as if they would actually try to cover everything in the book when they really just wanted to one-up the lengthy goodbyes from Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, it seemed vital to launch some new memes. Updates will come as memes are received, and created, but we will start you off with one of our own.
It had to happen. After such an insane response to my HBO’s Game of Thrones Explained…with Beer article, I decided to push the envelope and see what I could get away with in a sequel article. I know, it’s shameful. Then again, this could the makings of an intelligent trilogy, or even series, much like Star Wars, Harry Potter, and the first two Back to the Future movies. I’m not regurgitating. These are a new group of characters, a new group of alcohol(even if it does have a cameo in line with KISS showing up in a Scooby-Doo episode), and a new group of jokes. But you don’t have to take my word for it…
Washington DC: The results are in: Floridian ex-mom Casey Anthony has been found not guilty of 1st degree murder in the death of her 2 year old daughter Caylee. For many, the outrage has saturated the media more so than the O.J. Simpson verdict.

The Inept Owl has been lucky enough to have a few artists in multiple fields come back again and again with new albums, ideas, and visions. It has the feel of a family reunion, as we see each other grow up and grow out each time we get together for a brief moment in the year. Such is the case with The Northstar Session as I review their latest album, “Late Bloomer”.
Fearful attempts by the state of California to gag freedom of speech were curtailed by the U.S. Supreme Court yesterday, as justices voted 7-2 to allow the sale of violent, “M” rated video games to anyone in California who could reach the counter to pay, with no legal consequence to the retailer. The decicion was explained as a standard for all media that does not have naked men and women.
In his explanation of voting against the ban, Justice Scalia wrote, “Grimm’s Fairy Tales, for example, are grim indeed …Cinderella’s evil stepsisters have their eyes pecked out by doves. And Hansel and Gretel (children!) kill their captor by baking them in an oven.” The idea that a child could buy such a book on their own,(because all children even ask for books for holidays and birthdays), and not a violent video game was what led Justic Scalia to his decision.
