T-U-R-T-L-E POWER

Just got back from work, and was just flipping through the channels (my order usually goes: Cartoon Network -> VH1 -> MTV -> FX -> Comedy Central -> SpikeTV -> ESPN; then if nothing's on, AMC) when I ended up stopping at VH1 becasuse (a) they were playing a Radiohead video, and (b) they were playing "Fake Plastic Trees". Dammit, I love, love, love that song. I had not seen it in a while, it's probably been a few years at least. The video itself is kinda weird (isn't it always?). Thom looks creepy (but doesn't he always?). Sidenote: Thom Yorke looks like a younger version of Billy Drago, who played a creepy guy in... every single movie/TV show he's ever made. Perhaps they're related? It would explain the creepiness factor. Don't get me wrong, Thom. I'm still a big fan! Just don't eat me...

In case you haven't seen it yet, here's the teaser for the Teenage Mutant Nina Turtles CGI movie. I was hoping they'd stay more faithful to the comic version of the turtles (which was pretty violent and graphic), but it looks like they're sticking with the kids-friendly version. Oh well. I was still excited when I first saw it, though. I was a huge fan back in the days. Who wasn't? It was the equivalent of the Pokemon craze for our generation. Too bad Shredder won't be in it. That what I heard man, don't kill the messenger.

Heath Ledger = The Joker?!

I dunno, man. Although that picture of him they have on that page is kinda Joker-ish. But his voice wouldn't match at all. Anyway, it's just a rumor. (although they were the first ones to announce Bradon Routh was going to play Superman, so this can very well turn out to be true) Let's just hope he doesn't start making out with Batman or anything. Blatant and obvious reference to Brokeback Mountain FTW.

I was getting a haircut today when "I Love Rock and Roll" by Joan Jett and the Blackearts came blaring out of the radio. Almost instantly, I started playing Guitar Hero notes in my head. Yeah, I'm a freak.

Here's a tribute to Marco Materazzi, the dirtiest soccer football player in the world. If you don't know who that is, that's the guy that... GOOD LORD, HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING IN A CAVE DURING THE WORLD CUP?!

Musk





White Ninja never fails me.



It actually rained a bit as I drove home from work. Lightning, too. Or perhaps I'm just a little doozy from all the caffeine intake. And BTW, I hate the smell of rain. Especially after a long dry spell.

So I got a 360. To answer your questions: (a) yes, it does rock. & (b) yes, it is flippin' sweet. Now I need a nice HD television to take full advantage of this beast. You hear that, Mark? I'm waiting for that plasma! Oh, and X-Box Live is the SHIZZNITIS. Get GRAW and play with me and Adrian.

So everybody knows about the damn CD we made as a gift for Grace, back in the days when she used to leave for third world countries every effin' semester. You probably shouldn't ask her if you can hear the CD. And you defintely shoudn't ask if you can borrow the CD. And you better not ask if she can burn you a copy. Her life is at stake.

Jar of Dirt



GG France.



So I was relaxing in my car during my short break at work, when suddenly I started thinking about giftcards.

What's the point?

Say I give you a $20 giftcard for Best Buy. You're thinking, "Ooh, I can get a CD!" But wouldn't you rather have the actual $20 in cash instead? That's a "giftcard" that works everywhere! Now you're not restricted to just buying a CD. Is it because giving cash is awkward? Why is that? And how is giving giftcards less awkward than giving cash? You people make no sense.



I feel so awkward.



Oh, and I liked Pirates of the Carribean 2. Chew on that, haters.

Movie Night #10

For whatever reason, no one came to the previous one (except Sam, Doos and Solo, and Di of course). No biggie, you only missed MY FAVORITE MOVIE OF LAST YEAR. So I'm gonna put this up a little earlier than I usually do so you'll have plenty of time to clear up your schedules.







  • Synopsis: Lonely hit man Julian Noble and struggling salesman Danny Wright form an unexpected bond during a chance meeting in a Mexican bar. Six months later, when the self-proclaimed "facilitator of fatalities" turns up on the doorstep desperate for help, Danny and his wife are both horrified...but intrigued enough to oblige. 97mins. Rated R for "strong sexual content and language". (OH NOES!~ SEX!)
  • When & Where: Wednesday, July 12th. 8:00pm for the movie. Come earlier for Guitar Hero.
  • Who can come: Anyone. Except you have to be at least 17. Unless you bring a guardian. And no, I don't count.

Insomnia





Chuck Norris fact of the day: Chuck Norris doesnt shave; he kicks himself in the face. The only thing that can cut Chuck Norris is Chuck Norris.



I've been working mandatory over time because of the 4th of July weekend. It's sad that I start working before the sun sets and I go home just when the sun starts to come back up the next day. It is nice driving on the freeway at 5am though. It's so empty.

Kim MSN left to Indonesia with his family on Saturday. The fact that he was leaving didn't really hit me until that day, when I saw him balling his eyes out as he said goodbye to everyone. He was the backbone of the youth group and EM for 9 years. I miss ya already, Old Man.

/sigh

I may join the EM praise team. As long as Drew's out. Jay kay, jay kay.

This is the first time in several years that I won't get to do fireworks with friends. There is no holiday in World of Warcraft. Happy We-Kicked-Alien-Ass day everyone.
