    Two stars.

    The manager sat tied to the chair in the corral, firelit on all sides by the torches of the townfolk. Dean stood next to him with a Colt army revolver pointed to the hardpacked earth. Who else will speak, he said.

    A chorus…

    Michael O’Donoghue’s Mr. Mike’s Mondo Video (1979, 71 minutes)

    "Mr. Mike’s Mondo Video was a 1979 movie conceived by Saturday Night Live writer/featured player Michael O’Donoghue.
    Mondo Video was a spoof of the controversial 1962 documentary Mondo Cane, showing people doing weird stunts. Many cast members of SNL, as well as people who have previously hosted or would go on to host or perform on the show, made cameo appearances in this film.

    The plot of the film is a series of vignettes pieced together by a wraparound sketch where an underground organization searches for the titular “Mondo Video” of weird and disturbing images.

    It was originally produced on videotape as an NBC television special that would have aired during one of SNL’s live breaks. But much of the controversy surrounding the film lies in its raunchy adult content. NBC declared the show inappropriate for the network (in the wake of a ratings slump they experienced at the time). The special was then cancelled.”

    Security of Browser Extension Password Managers [PDF] →

    journo-geekery:

    Via Radar/Torkington, where Nat excerpts:

    This research shows that the examined password managers made design decisions that greatly increase the chance of users unknowingly exposing their passwords through application-level flaws. Many of the flaws relate to the browser-integrated password managers that don’t follow the same-origin policy that is crucial to browser security. In the case of password managers, this means that passwords could be filled into unintended credential forms, making password theft easier.
