John Adams

HBO has done it again. Their miniseries John Adams, based on the book by David McCullough, is absolutely brilliant. It completely turns on its head the traditional way that American history is understood and gives fascinating insight into the decisions that our founding fathers had to make. However, perhaps the most astounding thing is the period detail throughout that really informs the viewer and make the show resonate. 

This is a real American history lesson.

Great pictures from around the world...

In honor of the news about 300, the Oracle of Apollo at Delphi. For the Greeks, this was the center of the world.


So it was announced that the producers of 300 are going to make a prequel and a sequel (?) to the movie. 

What the fuck, didn't everybody die?
