Nerd Rage!

So Gallery 1988 in Hollywood had an awesome show run recently that featured various prints and paintings of cult films called Crazy 4 Cult. We went the day after it opened and they were already sold out of a ton of things but we managed to score a handful of super-sweet artwork.

One of the pieces I picked up was Tim Doyle's fantastic print, collecting various objects from pop culture films. Considering I own about half of these, I pretty much had to have it.

On to the rage. When the exhibit opened, they ran a contest for prints where you could guess all the props in the poster and what films/TV shows they were from. I got about 30 out of 40 right off the bat and then had to do some digging around and photo comparisons to get the rest. When I got to 37, I was lucky enough to have Alf & Willie (hahahaha! I just noticed that) help me out with the 2 from Dune. I hadn't seen that in at least 20 years and they were driving me crazy. The last one (i) was the holdout. I pasted my answers below, along with the 'real' answers...

G.I. JOE: The Sequel

OK! So the movie raked in about 100 mill world-wide this weekend which means...sequel!

Several years ago I did my G.I. Joe draft of everyone I wanted to be in the GI Joe movie. It was a little over the top, but whatever. Since then, they cast many people in the movie, some of which I don't agree with at all, and others which were perfectly serviceable.
In fact...


SNAKE EYES: I got one right! He was the only one from my initial wish list that actually made the cut to the movie! So that was pretty cool.

So now that the movie is raking in the cash, it's time to head back to the drawing board! Who will they add to the sequel?

I still hold to all of my choices from last time. I think they hold up strong!

"Love Sucks"

Want to know what else sucks? High school. And vampires with kiddie fetishes.

Here's what I would like to know. Why the EFF would 2 brother vampires who look 30 (because they ARE 30) hang out in a high school?!

Look, I get it. Teen girls are probably a tasty snack. Makes sense. What DOESN'T make sense is why a vampire, most likely high up in the double (if not triple) digits age-wise would want to actually TALK to one. I'm only 35 and I have a real hard time dealing with teenagers as it is. Then again these moody-type vampires are all about self-flagellation in various forms, so maybe they punish themselves by hanging out in high school, I don't know.

It just seems to be a fate much, much worse than just going to hell.


The Ballad of G.I. Joe


And what's awesome, is they even have some of the people I wanted to be cast in G.I. Joe in the first place, including Zach Galifianakis as Snow Job!

Can you spot them all?

Olivia Wilde, Zach Galifianakis, Alexis Bledel, Billy Crudup, Julianne Moore, Chuck Liddell, Sgt Slaughter, Tony Hale, Laz Alonso, Joey Kern, Henry Rollins, Alan Tudyk, Vinnie Jones, and Josh Simpson

R.I.P. John Hughes

These days, anything you want to know about your favorite directors you can just grab online. Judd Apatow, Zack Snyder, whoever you want to read about, they are all over the place.

John Hughes disappeared from the public eye long before the current state of media, and maybe because of that, I can only think kindly of him and all the fantastic movies he directed when I was a kid. Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, Planes Trains and Automobiles. And beyond directing, he wrote tons of other family-related films from the Vacation movies to Uncle Buck, The Great Outdoors and Home Alone. Suspiciously, these were also the last times Chevy Chase, John Candy and Dan Aykroyd were actually funny (though Aykroyd has had some moments since then).

Anyway, while we haven't seen anything amazing from him in a while, I still feel a sense of loss similar to that when Jim Henson passed away. The man created great things and will never be forgotten. I won't lie, I've welled up a bit.

Fun montage:

7 Days of G.I. Joe: Day 7.1

Epic Fail! The last 2 days were really bad for me, so I didn't get to this. SO! We'll do 3 posts today.

There are 2 awesome action figure movies on Facebook using the toys. Enjoy!

7 Days of G.I. Joe: Day 4

For today! I give you commercials.

Sgt. Slaughter is woefully absent from the movie. But look for a Refrigerator Perry cameo! (I kid, I kid)

Cover Girl is actually in the movie, as is Gung Ho, but I'm not saying any more about that.

The quality of the following commercial is shockingly bad, but I love the rock songs they wrote for all of these. Just classic.

And for your horror:

Ack! Since when did COBRA get into the construction business?

7 Days of G.I. Joe: Day 3

Sorry! Today was slammed.

Today's treat are the Fensler Film PSAs from the G.I. Joe cartoon.

In the movie, we do get a "knowing is half the battle", but alas, no PSA. I stayed through the credits to make sure.

I considered saving Part 2 for Day 4, but then thought that might be cheating. So here's part 2!

Headed back to the gym


I said GYM, not Jim. (oh, hey, some free advertising for my friends at IGN).

Anyway, as you know, for the last 2 years I've been pretty much consumed by work at Click. I spend on average 60 hours a week crouched over my laptop, firing off e-mails as quickly as possible. The result of which is super-nimble fingers, and an ever-expanding gut.

So I decided to get a trainer. 2-3 days a week, but with the accountability I at least HAVE to go. I'm only a week in, but it's definitely been good and I'm starting to feel a lot better as well.

I think I've lost 3 pounds, too.

7 Days of G.I. Joe: Day 2

One of the biggest complaints people had from the trailers for this movie is that people aren't wearing their costumes from the cartoon/action figures and instead are wearing these HALO knock-offs.

Note: Wolverine did not wear his yellow spandex either, so calm down. Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow are pretty close, though. As is Baroness.

All in all, the accelerator suit action sequence is pretty long and crazy. You've seen a chunk of it in the trailers, but it's only about 1/4 of the entire scene. I'm telling you, this movie ramps up each action sequence by leaps and bounds. Plus, there's the exploding heads, which are pretty sweet.

Hey, Mr. DJ

I thought this was a joke at first, but lo & behold it is NOT.


I don't know how I feel about this. I know everyone's panties are soaking over Beatles Rock Band, but this might be the coolest or lamest thing I've ever seen.

It's not coming out for a while, and I'll definitely wait for reviews, but dang. Who'd a thought?

Don't just stare at it!

7 Days of G.I. Joe: Day 1

I got to see the GI Joe movie this week. After all the bad buzz ever since the trailer was shown, I'll admit my expectations were looooow. And a few months ago I had to read the 6-page scriptment of the movie and it spoiled the whole thing from beginning to end. They mess with a lot of relationship/backstory of some of the main characters (Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow is mostly intact, though), which is the most annoying thing about the movie. But to be honest, they did the exact same thing with the X-Men movies, so I'm not THAT bent out of shape.

All that aside, I actually enjoyed the movie. A lot. It's big, loud, incredibly ridiculous, basically it was a live action cartoon. Walking out, you feel like you are 10 years old again and all you want to do is go outside and set up a massive battlefield. In fact, the the only real cringe-inducing moments in the movie (after you've let go and are enjoying the cartooniness) are the awkward 'love' scenes. Eww! Girls are gross! This movie may very well have been written after watching a battle unfold in Steven Sommers backyard. You never know.

Surprisingly, a LOT of heads are blown up in the movie. I can distinctly remember about a half dozen tops being popped off.

Anyway, I'l get into minor specifics of the movie throughout the week (w/out spoiling) and hopefully maintain your own low/cartoon expectations so you can enjoy the movie in it's fullest.

And on that note, today I present to you the Top 5 WORST GI Joe vehicles/accessories that make no sense.

And yes, the Yeti Net is one of them.



Happy belated postday

This blog has been woefully underused for the past 3 months. To be fair, I've been spending a little too much time on work, as well as Facebook and Twitter, but those posts are fairly short and service the purpose of bits and blurbs. Though, again, if I'm being honest, my writing skills tend to lend themselves to the bit and the blurb. I'm much more of a vocal rambler than a written rambler.


There are a ton of things and photos and the like that I have been up to in the past few months so I am going to lay them all out and try to get back to the blog-a-day (or at least 4-5/week) from the days of old.

Time to dust off the old Flickr account, get some photos uploaded and get rolling! Though I'll try and not post them all right now and then forget for the rest of the week.

Cuz that would be boring.
