We are the knights who say... Wii.

Chuck Norris fact of the day: Chuck Norris uses Tabasco Sauce for eye drops.

Just got back from talking with my aunt. Well she did most of the talking, I mostly did the listening. She lectured me about how I need a car, how I need to look into getting a car, how I need credit, how credit is important, blahblahblah. Thank you Captain Obvious. Do I look like a 12-year-old? Sure, I act like one, but do I look like one? My mom had orchestrated the whole thing because she's worried about me and that's what mothers do: worry. So I'm supposed to look for a car now. Research. The point of the whole thing was to tell me what I already know - I'm broke as a joke. If anyone is selling a used car or knows someone that wants to, holla at yer boy, playa.

Now for some random news:
  • Al Pacino is joining the already-huge cast of Ocean's 13. All that is known so far is that his name is Willie Banks and he's a Vegas casino owner. Think Soderbergh is cool enough to make Pacino's character be the father of Andy Garcia a la The Godfather Part 3? Or will he make Pacino play a character that looks just like Pacino?
  • The new Nintendo console (which has been called Revolution up until now) has a name: Wii. It's pronounced "we" or better yet, "wee." I wish I was joking. Whoever thought up the name must have been smoking some serious wiid.
  • Mission Impossible 3 is supposedly quite good. I've seen nothing but glowing reviews. I liked the first one. The less said about the second one, the better. Critics are saying this one's the best. I personally think it has to with the fact that Simon Pegg (Shaun from Shaun of the Dead) is in it.
  • Tom Yum Goong is effing awesome. It's better than Ong Bak. Tony Jaa continues to amaze me. He's the new Chuck Norris! There I said it. (Oh no you didn't!)
  • Pablo wants me to hold a Firefly marathon. Your wish is my command, Pablo. It'll be this Saturday afternoon. Whoever wants to come, come. It's okay if you don't. I have Pablo.

The Ass or the Crotch

Chuck Norris fact of the day: Chuck Norris can jump-start a car using jumper cables attached to his nipples.

I heart Fight Club. I saw it last night for the first time in about two years and it was just as awesome as I remembered. It's been too long since Fincher's last movie. Norton hasn't had a decent role since The 25th Hour. Only one doing well is Pitt, who's boinking Angelina Jolie. Bastard.

My aunt called me this morning, and asked to meet on Thursday. I haven't seen her in more than a year. I wonder what that's about?

Am I the only one that liked Silent Hill? Does that make me a demented freak? Or do I just have bad taste?

Whoever said "all of the above" gets to pat himself on the back.

I am 8-bit

was awesome. The Wench already posted some pictures, so check them out. Here are some more that I liked:

Erik Siador - Metroid

Jim Rugg - Pro Wrestling

Buff Monster - Super Mario Bros.

Isaac Pierro - Luigi

Jim Emroca Flores - Mario vs. Donkey Kong

Joe Ledbetter - Double Dragon

Brandon Bird - TMNT

Brandon Bird - Harrison Ford and his Sega

Steve Purcell - Sam & Max Hit the Road

Lauren Crist - The Legend of Zelda, Mario, Mega Man
The captions say:
1. "Together we brought back the Triforce."
2. "I helped you get the girl."
3. "We conquered Dr. Wily!"
4. "Why can't I live in your world?"

Luke Chueh - Bubble Bobble
Di has this up already, but this is my absolute favorite piece so I'm putting it up too.

A For Effort

Chuck Norris fact of the day: Proponents of higher-order theories of consciousness argue that consciousness is explained by the relation between two levels of mental states in which a higher-order mental state takes another mental state. If you mention this to Chuck Norris, expect an explosive roundhouse kick to the face for spouting too much fancy-talk.

Remember this? Nothing will ever top that. But this gives a nice try:

Yes, that's a clip from Breakin'. JCVD was an extra in that movie, which was also one of his earliest on-screen appearances. I find that hilarious.

Robotic Retard

Those Saved By the Bell commercials for Adult Swim are so bad that they've gone past the good and back to bad again.*

I got royally owned by Ghost Rider and Silver Bullet at Knott's. Those 7th graders are pretty funny, except when they go off without telling us and making us worry and look for them. Again and again.

*I totally stole that from Ghost World.

Take a Powder

I love hotdogs. Yes I do.

Chuck Norris fact of the day: The best part of waking up, is not Folgers in your cup, but knowing that Chuck Norris didn't kill you in your sleep.

No work this week, so...

Wednesday - Knott's with the 7th graders. If it doesn't rain, that is. Mike and I are more excited than the kids.

Friday & Saturday - 30 hour famine. Also leading praise. Will I make it?

Probably watch Thank You For Smoking sometime this week. I saw Brick on Saturday after Sung's wedding. Highly recommended*. Rian Johnson (the writer and director) is someone I'll be watching for.

*The movie, not the wedding.

don't wake me I plan on sleeping in

Further Deviations

Chuck Norris fact of the day: Chuck Norris once created a flamethrower by urinating into a lighter.

I have zero hours of work next week. I'm not sure if this is their way of telling me I'm fired. I guess that's unlikely since there were two others that weren't scheduled either.

Unless they're fired too.

WoW is down. Again. I want a damn refund, Blizzard.

Couple of links. First is The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny. And here's the new English trailer for Lady Vengeance.
