Whoa! G.I. Joe news that has nothing to do with the movie.

Look, I'm not going to apologize for my zealous behavior in regard to G.I. Joe. Born in 1974, I was the exact target demo for the entire line of toys, comics and cartoon from beginning to miserable neon/toxic end. And no, I didn't stay til then, I crept away when the Space crap started. But I digress. The G.I. Joe cartoon series began with a few mini-series and they've finally made action figures from the story-lines! How sweet are these?!


Snake Eyes even has the radioactive feet & hands!!!


Roadblock! He got no time to fight no vine!

I have seen my future...and it is NOW

OK, so I ran across the Top 11 Signs You're No Longer A Hard-Core Gamer.

(sigh) Not that I was ever hard-core, per se, since I was/am an adamant cheater, but seriously, this is my future. May my unborn children weep now. (and by future, I mean, like, next Wednesday.)


Kids are S-M-R-T

Facing the fact that kids are stupid makes me worry about our future, while at the same time giving my job security til the day I die/retire. Anyway, I found a pretty damn funny site call OMG Owned that has some funny attempts at failing math problems.




Metal robots!

Yet one more link I found messing around today. Millions and billions of metal sculptures of sweet shit.


Down the Star Wars rabbit hole

I started the morning messing around on eBay, in case there were any items that I needed for my gun wall (alas, nay). Then I saw THIS awesome little piece that I will need to order for my Christmas decoration box, because really, it's retardation exceeds awesomeness levels.


How RAD is that? So then I started thinking maybe I was coveting a full-size Han in Carbonite and wondered if they even exist? OH, WHAT I DID FIND.


I have found that which I doth covetest mostest in this world. Fan-frickin-TASTIC.

Then, with that discovery, I dug further and found a hilarious site called Geekologie, which I have since added to my bookmark bar. Here I found a plethora of entertaining material, inclusing the gun video in the post below. Anyway, they have a list of rejected Star Wars merchandising, which is a crying shame, because who wouldn't pay top-dollar for something as rad as THIS?!


I know, I know, I'm a geek, leamme alone, but for serious, this stuff is awesome.


Hanging out in the Midewest has it's perks. On the menu for tomorrow?

Bigger, Faster, Stronger

OK, so I started to go to the gym again. It's the first since, oh, 11th grade? I find that I do actually enjoy it and I seem to be getting a little stronger, so there's that. Faster? Not sure yet, but I definitely am making headway in that department. I can run 1.75 miles in about 18-19 minutes on the treadmill.

Bigger? Here's the WEIRD thing. And it has nothing to do with the gym. I got a physical for life insurance a few weeks ago and they actually measured my height. This was the first time since I left High School and LO AND BEHOLD, I am actually 3/4" taller than I thought! I'm almost 6'1"!

I'm officially 6' 3/4" tall.


Wanna see something gross?

Too late!

Photo 13.jpg

But that in and of itself is not gross. What it IS is the freaky thing.

It is a small stone, shaped somewhat like a tiny crocodile tooth. And it was cut OUT OF MY MOUTH, from under my tongue.

It's a salivary stone. So essentially, and literally, I spit rocks.

Grand Theft Auto Four...no, Bore.


Lemme start off by saying YES, the visuals are fantastic. YES, the story is compelling, as is the voice talent, even if I do end up muttering to myself is a bad Russian accent. YES, there are some cool new additions like the cell phone and being able to take taxis. YES, the battles are cooler because you can hide behind things while shooting around the corner (enemies do as well, so that can be a little tiresome.) All that aside? It's the same shit, different day. Drive over here, chase them down, drive over there, shoot and escape, drive over there, shoot someone and get away.

While there are some sweet missions, like the bank heist where you have to fight waves of cops in the streets a la HEAT, or jumping on the roof of the truck to hijack it, or kidnapping the chick that tries to take the wheel of the car, the rest is kind of boring. What REALLY is weak is the LOSS of certain aspects from the past few. Being able to drive golf carts, bicycles and planes, having weapons like the katana or flamethrower or mini-gun. There seem to be less cars, too, but I could be wrong. What I really miss is the base-jumping/parachuting. Being able to fly a chopper somewhere, then jump out and parachute to your destination was some serious rockitude on the last game. I still have a few more missions to complete, so maybe I'll be surprised, but here is my major beef with GTA IV and the last one:

Doing monotonous every day stuff that I CAN DO MYSELF IN THE REAL WORLD. I don't WANT to waste video game time eating, drinking, buying clothes, playing pool, bowling or any other boring things. Here's what I want:

- To commit arson. I'd like to be able to fill up gas cans at gas stations, pour it on things and light them on fire. Buildings, people, cars, trees.
- I would like to see emergency response teams come to clean up my messes.
- If I have to do mundane tasks, I'd prefer to have to keep a hostage alive than shoot pool.
- I would like to torture information out of people. Not just hit them a few times until a cutscene happens.
- I think I should have to escape from prison at some point. They seem to kick you loose pretty easy when you murder hundreds of people.
- I want to enter office buildings on a motorcycle and drive out pane windows onto other rooftops (like in Vice City)
- I want to do sniper assassinations at large public events like a rally or sports game.
- Maybe attack a wedding, mafia-style.

I'm sure there are more things I could think of, but that's off the top of my head. Maybe if your Wanted level gets too high, you become Most Wanted and if you walk in front of cameras, you get recognized or something and have to get plastic surgery or wear disguises that deteriorate over time or during battles. I think there is a LOT to be done with the criminal element and GTA IV did a great job with the nitty gritty about low-end street crime. But when I think Grand Theft Auto, I think GRAND, not realistic and petty. I want to do crazy stuff, and this one is just a bit too tame for me. Even though it is interesting in the details.

Rusty, The Mad Robot!

It is not he who is crazy, it is he who is MAD.


This is my blood-nephew. So yes, we are born this way.

WALL-E? Awesome. America? Not so much

WALL-E is a GREAT flick. They have visually outdone themselves this time around, as Pixar brought in cinematographer legend Roger Deakins to teach the animators about scope & range and hot DAMN do they deliver. For a movie with very little dialogue, it's a fantastic story. I really can't wait to see what they do with live-action. But I digress.

The only sad thing about seeing WALL-E? The damn audience we saw it with. Did they make noise? No. Well, not beyond all the giggles, sighs and laughs that everyone did. No, what they did was watch a movie, with lots and lots of pretty pictures and no words, spell out in GREAT detail how mankind ruined the planet with all their trash and had to leave for space while robots cleaned it up. They watched this, and then left EVERY SINGLE POSSIBLE PIECE OF TRASH THEY COULD behind in the theater. I mean it was PILED everywhere. All over the floor, in the seats, everywhere and all of these dumbass parents with their kids just kicked it over, stepped on it and walked out talking about how cute the movie was. Oh, the other awesome part was that during the credits there are awesome painted stills and animation that continue the story and people are walking out muttering to themselves about how much they hate credits and can't understand why people wait through them.

I hate WAL-Merica. I've ranted before how awesome Idiocracy is, and here's my simple comparison. They didn't get that one, either.
