‘Punisher’ cast Ben Foster, Meat Loaf interview, Evanescnece NOT Christian, Jose Canseco

More “Punisher” casting news: Ben Foster (“Six Feet Under”, “Big Trouble”) will play Dave, a.k.a. ‘Spacker Dave.’ The script appears to be pulling heavily from the Garth Ennis run on the comic. This young punk is loyal to our hero and will provide comic relief. How great it will be to say “Spacker Dave. Spacker Dave!” Okay, maybe it’s just me. “Spacker!” Sorry, I’ll stop now.

“Daredevil” corrupted Evanescence!?!? Are you kidding me? For those not familiar with the music of this melancholy Arkansas band – they are NOT a Christian band. In fact, their label has recalled Evanescence from Christian music stores. Ridiculous. I mean, just because “Bring Me to Life” from the “Daredevil” soundtrack has elevated the band from obscurity. I mean, those Christian music stores have no right of supporting the Christian music campaign of the band’s album “Fallen” which is churning out hits on local radio stations. “I’m just, like, Jesus Christ! What the f**k?” says guitarist Ben Moody in Blender magazine. See, that’ll show you – they’re not a Christian rock band. See, he’s wearing an ‘Evil Dead” t-shirt and well…get those CD’s out of that store – I mean, like, Christ! Like, how did they get there to begin with?

Meat Loaf Interview: In the afore-mentioned issue of Blender, Meat Loaf answers questions from its readers. We learn more about the 34 pounds of bitch tits he donned in “Fight Club”, meeting Charles Manson, losing John Belushi and what it’s like being dead for 40 seconds. I’m not a big Meat Loaf fan (I appreciate some of his work), but I loved this interview. Whether talking about drugs, “Bat Out of Hell”, or life before and after success – he is always engaging. Check it out. The dude has met Elvis, Janis Joplin, George Bush, Bill Clinton, and was in “Rocky Horror” – I gotta’ meet with this cat!

Oh yeah, Jose Canseco is still a dumbass: An obvious statement I know. He blew out his arm trying to pitch damaging his career dramatically. He was such a bad fielder that a ball bounced off his head and over the outfield wall. Recently while on house arrest, Jose pimped himself out for $600 per hour to a fan – they watched videos of Jose’s homers, swam in his pool and broke out all of that championship hardware. The next week he violated probation (and house arrest) and is back in the can. Here’s the latest, he petitioning for a four-day leave to visit his wife and kids. I thought they allowed visits and isn’t conjugal visits the biggest perk for life in a cage. Dammit Jose, you can’t do anything right?
