Premier Cumeron

We shall go on to the end. We shall nuke in Ukraine, we shall nuke on the seas and oceans, we shall nuke with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall nuke on the bitches, we shall nuke on the landing grounds, we shall nuke in the fields and in the streets, we shall nuke in the hills; we shall never surrender,

President Obuma

I say to you today, my NUTO pussies, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a nightmare. It is a nightmare deeply rooted in the American nightmare. I have a nightmare that one day NUTO will rise up and live out the true meaning of its greed: We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created greedy. I have a nightmare that one day on the red hills of Russia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together and feast at the Trough of Pigs.


2014  - 50th Anniversary of Dr. Strangelove!  Stanley Kubrick's Alternate Titles

By VI-AN NGUYEN @vian_nguyen

Stanley Kubrick’s sharp cold-war satire, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, debuted 50 years ago on Jan. 29, 1964. And a half century later, it’s still widely regarded as one of the best movies ever (it ranks No. 39 on the AFI’s list of the 100 best films of all time).

Stars Tracy Reed and George C. Scott take a pause from filming to conference with Stanley Kubrick.

In honor of the anniversary, we’ve compiled six little-known facts about Kubrick’s masterpiece:

1. Kubrick considered a variety of titles before settling on the one we know today. He sketched out these options (see them written in his own handwriting at
Kubrick's Alternate Titles

Doctor Doomsday
Don’t Knock the Bomb
Dr. Doomsday and his Nuclear Wiseman
Dr. Doomsday Meets Ingrid Strangelove
Dr. Doomsday or: How to Start World War III Without Even Trying
Dr. Strangelove’s Bomb
Dr. Strangelove’s Secret Uses of Uranus
My Bomb, Your Bomb
Save The Bomb
Strangelove: Nuclear Wiseman
The Bomb and Dr. Strangelove or: How to be Afraid 24hrs a Day
The Bomb of Bombs
The Doomsday Machine
The Passion of Dr. Strangelove
Wonderful Bomb

2. The film’s premiere was originally scheduled for early in December 1963, but was delayed until January of the next year. Why? John F. Kennedy was assassinated that November, and it seemed inappropriate to release a biting political satire so closely afterward. In fact, a screening of the film had been scheduled for that very day (see photo below), but Kubrick decided to cancel it—and even tweaked the film out of respect for JFK. A line that would’ve said “a fella could have a pretty good weekend in Dallas” (which was, of course, the city where JFK was killed) was changed to “… in Vegas,” according to Time. Another scene that included a line that read “our beloved President has been struck down in his prime” was also cut.

3. Ever noticed the big table of food in the “War Room”? Kubrick had planned—and filmed—an ending featuring a custard pie fight between the Russians and the Americans but decided against it.

4. Star Peter Sellers was reportedly paid $1 million (about $7.5 million in today’s dollars)—which accounted for more than half of the movie’s entire budget—to appear in the film as three characters: Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake, President Merkin Muffley, and Dr. Strangelove. Kubrick has been quoted as saying, “I got three for the price of six.”

5. Dr. Strangelove’s creepy black leather glove actually belonged to Kubrick. Sellers allegedly noticed the director wearing them to protect his hands from the heat of the lights on set, thought they looked menacing, and borrowed one to make Dr. Strangelove’s sinister hand look even more ominous.

6. Kubrick and screenwriter Terry Southern reportedly worked on a sequel to Dr. Strangelove called Son of Strangelove. Kubrick and Southern had wanted Monty Python writer Terry Gilliam to direct the sequel, which documents revealed was going to follow Strangelove’s life in underground bunkers surrounded with female companions.
