It’s 11-11-11. In other words, it’s officially Nigel Tufnel day. As lead guitarist for England’s loudest band, Spinal Tap, Tufnel knows that if it’s louder, it’s better. That’s why he plays with amps specialized so that the volume knobs go up to eleven. Because eleven is one louder than ten.

In honor of this, the loudest day in the universe, we decided to blast Tap. Don’t worry if our office walls start shaking. We want it that way.

Big Bottom

“Big bottom, big bottom. Talk about bum cakes, my girl’s got ‘em.”

Tap took the opportunity to homage the female body part that ZZ Top didn’t get around to — the posterior. The band once again proves their technical prowess by employing three bass guitars for the anthems driving force. Plus, ZZ Top never got around to a lyric like this, “My love gun’s loaded and she’s in my sights. Big game is waiting there inside her tights, yeah.”

Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight

“You’re sweet but you’re just four feet. And you still got your baby teeth. You’re too young and I’m too wel hung.”

A perfect send-up of heavy rock while simultaneously one of the greatest songs ever written, “Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight” is better than the tracks it takes aim at. It’s almost flawless, if only the roadies could get their act together.

Darren Lynn Bousman is back with the official teaser trailer for 11-11-11, now with a confirmed release date. You’ll never guess what it is. If you do, I’ll owe you a cookie.

Looks like Bousman is looking to capitalize on all those Veteran’s Day moviegoers by releasing the horror flick on the appropriately calendar date of 11-11-11.

The film’s conceit is that the numbers 11-11 have appeared throughout history as harbingers of something dreadful yet to arrive. Kind of like the colors black and yellow. Now that that song has been released, I see them everywhere. And I do mean everywhere. They’ll appear on something as innocuous as a mustard jar or a bumblebee floating past a taxi cab. But they are out, and they’re planning something. You doubt me now but we’ll see who’s left standing after Wiz Khalifa inadvertently opens a portal to Hell on Earth. (Bloody Disgusting)

If television and movies have taught me anything, it’s that an obsession with numbers always leads to ghosts, murder, demons, possession, and the purchasing of a successful fried chicken franchise. Looks like this holds true for Darren Lynn Bousman‘s 11-11-11 as well. The film is still currently shooting but Bousman managed to cobble together this teaser from the footage that is already in the can.

The movie’s plot centers around the palindromic date that evil has selected for its best time to cross over into our world. Just in time to ruin our Thanksgiving travel plans. Thanks for nothing evil angel guy and other assorted monsters. Dick move.

11-11-11 has no planned released date as of yet. Pretty presumptuous titling there, 11-11-11.
