Stupid rain

It's supposed to rain tonight.

OK, with all the fires, rain is a GOOD thing. But why does it always rain on Halloween? Or at least the night of the Halloween parties?

Why can't in rain on Thanksgiving? Wait. That would make you stuck inside with all the relatives. Scratch that. Anyway, not the point. I wasn't trying to bargain with Mother Nature here.

Besides, the rain won't foil my costume THIS time around. I used real paint instead of fake blood this year. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Suck it!!!

6 Degrees of Kavin Bacon's Irony

So we had dinner at Off Vine the other night (read my Yelp review here!) and sitting right next to us was Kevin Bacon, wife Woodstock and some other people. The funny thing was that all night long this would pop up in their conversation, "Who was the guy that was in that one thing? You know, the other one." And no, they never figured out the answers to any of them and we held our tongues, since we knew the answers to all of them.

For anyone who's ever played 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon, this was pretty funny.

Also funny, a Director's Cut of Hollow Man was just released. That was about as necessary as another sequel. And yes, there was a Hollow Man 2.

Not Scary Farm

not scary.jpg, originally uploaded by macslost.

So last night we went to the Knott's Berry Farm Halloween Haunt. The key element of the "horror" seemed to be the fact that it was a) dark and b) had goons like this guy pictured here running around.

Most of the haunted mazes seemed to features "scares" in the form of what I refer to as "tap hands". The employees had gloves with metal palms and finger tips they would click together in people's faces or slap their hand against the plywood wall. Most of the mazes were like this. The last 2 were pretty cool, though. They did one for Beowolf, which had a pretty great set design and these massive giants wandering around, which was pretty cool and The Grudge II maze was a good one. Lots of hair everywhere and creepy little girls popping out of the walls.

I'd heard stories about all of the fog and creatures lurking in it, but the place was just packed with people, mostly of the teen variety, so adding a creepy factor was a bit lost and had to be boiled down to the startle factor to get people to jump or scream. There wasn't a lot of fog, either, though there was some ash falling, which was crazy because the fires were all about 2-3 hours away. Then again, we were pretty close to San Diego and they had some as well.

A few of the mazes, like the "Dark Realm - Laser Rage" and "Killer Clown Kollege" were pretty damn weak. But for the most part, if you like Haunted Houses, there's some pretty fun ones to look at. "The Doll Factory" and "13 Axe Murder Mansion" had some fairly intricate sets made.

We may try to hit the Universal Horror Nights this next weekend, but it's pretty crazy with the long lines and I'm NOT a fan of lines. For anything.

P.T. Barnum Presents: Presidential Campaign '08

So, there we have it. Stephen Colbert is running for President. Or is he?

After this segment ran, news outlets nationwide are making an attempt to decide if he was kidding or not. Here's some fun coverage bits:

ABC News

I hope he does. This campaign is going to be a ridiculous circus as it is, so at least it could be deliberately funny.

(thanks to Alf for the heads-up, I've been a tad busy to read/watch anything lately)

Chad Vader. Awesome as always.

Look! I'm on AOL!

So one of my guys at AOL asked me to participate in their Top 25 Under 25 feature that they ran on the industry buzz for 25 up-and-comers. He assigned me Anna-Sophia Robb and Josh Hutcherson because I worked on Bridge to Terabithia with them in it, so I got to write up why they might actually "make it". Though honestly Anna-Sophia Robb's got some serious chops in a Natalie Portman kinda way. Anyway, look! I ranked above Jason Reitman!

Boy, you'll be a Trekkie sooooooon...

OK, so I've seen all of the Star Trek movies, enjoyed 1/2 of them, watched most of the TV shows but I would never call myself a Trekkie. I know the characters names, but only their last name, with the exception of James T. Kirk. I could care less what Sulu's first name is. Even more so, with the exception of Patrick Stewart and Scott Bakula, I never even cared for any of the actors on the shows outside of the Enterprise. OK, I'll give George Takei a pass for Heroes, but that's about it.

Point being, with JJ Abrams helming the Star Trek: The High School Years flick, I can damn near say that with a cast like THIS?! I will most likely be sporting pointy ears very soon.

Oh, NERO is the villain.

Time to beam up an ass-whoopin'.

G.I. Joe action!

So check it! My G.I. Joe draft totally got picked up by RopeOfSilicon.com. How awesome is that? That got some number jumpin' on the site. Fun stuff!

And for a little added bonus, here's what Cobra Commander does on his days off:

Mmmmmm...pretty pictures

New Burton/Depp project!

And here's an awesome new sci-fi flick called JUMPER:

Here's a new one for Stephen King's THE MIST, which looks AMAZING:
