They just got laid off

They just got laid off
I generally hate unions, but they are a necessary evil. I also attack the rank and file members for not supporting candidates that support unions (IE DEMs). But, this is shitty. If you want to keep your job, sometimes voting for the guy you don't agree with socially is required.
You can feel the anger these people have over being laid off and told their jobs are going to Mexico. I've never had a job I've been proud of in a long time, so I partly can't understand their feelings. But, this is always a shitty way to tell someone they're job is ending despite your best effort. 
Note:  Watch that one guy that simply leaves after the first announcement.  That look of disappointment.

[Unsolicited Opinions on Israel???]

[Unsolicited Opinions on Israel???]
  This came across my radar on Know Your Meme. And, I thought, “WTF was that?”
Is this supposed to be a joke or has the writer has gone off the deep in? Here's the thing, I'd have a problem with literally the WRITER bringing herself and her political views to barge into the story. I'd have the same problem with a right wing writer forcing their view literally into the story. I don't really care about the political aspects of it, but laziness of the writing.
How does this fit into the context of the story? If you want to fit your views into a narrative, then find a creative way to do it into the story via the characters or the story, but not to force feed it into the blocking out text from a sexist/racist character. Do it creatively.
And, does a mega god worry about things like MRA or Middle East issues? And, what does unsolicited opinions about Israel have to do with the story at hand? You don't see this type of breaking of the fourth wall unless it is in a Deadpool comic. Is this usual in this series?
It just seems odd to have your writer/narrator come in spout out this strange political tirade. Why not just have the actual character say these crazy things and have your hero comment about it instead. This just comes across as the writer having an ax to grind instead of telling a compelling story with yor character at least having your view via through the story. This is clearly preaching for the sake of preaching.
Frank Miller sort of does this on the other side of the political side. It gets annoying on that side too. Yes, Miller, you hate women and you are right-leaning, we get it.
-Why would a God in the Marvel universe care about Israel or even having opinions about said country? Was this supposed to a joke?
-Is it the writer or the narrator breaking the fourth wall?
-Does Bor, a living god, search the MRA websites when he is not kicking ass? It makes no sense in the context of things unless it is a Deadpool series where these sort of things happen. It is confusing. Does this sort of thing happen in this comic book?

Fun with Google Searches on my blog...(Keywords)

Fun with Google Searches on my blog...
I enjoy looking at what people do a search on on my over ten year old blog.  So, I am going share with you the top searches for this month with you.   
Eva Angelina: She is a pornstar that usually wears horn-rimmed glasses and is very pleasing to the eye. I may have mentioned her a few times. She is the top searched item with 15 searches on my stats. 
 Gianna Michaels : Again, another pornstar. Damn, I like my pornstars don't I? She is another favorite of mine. I believe she's retired, but I could be wrong. She has ten hits for this month. 
Shannon Fill: This is one of my most popular posts to date and still gets new comments and many hits on it. Shannon was an actress that showed up on two episodes of TNG and received a lot of praise for her acting skills. She then disappeared from acting without a trace. She doesn't even show up for conventions and hasn't really popped up.
pornstar with star wars tattoo: I did that post about some pornstar with a SW tattoo. If I was performing a scene with her, I'd think “Stay on target. Stay on target”.
sarah palin pageant: I am so sick of this woman. Who cares...
ed helms and jason sudeikis: They're kind of like twins in a sense. Both have that nerd-white-guy look about them. If you can hire one, you hire the other one. Plus, they were in a movie together We're the Millers.
amber lamps: She is the headphones girl with the retro look in that viral video where two fools fought on a public bus. 

cause and effect star trek: This is the famous TNG episode where the Enterprise blows up countless times over the course of the episode because of a time loop. It is a very good/format breaking episode and it works. You really don't see this sort of thing on TV today.
ensign sito: Trek reference; this is character Shannon Fill played. 
erika christensen in dance movie: As far as I can tell, Erika was never in a dance movie. It was her look-a-like Julia Stiles. Stiles is the one in the movie every woman under 30 fell in love with and that was Save the Last Dance. Erika Christensen is the loopy actress that is in deep with Scientology. In other words, growing up in it. She was in the not intended funny movie Swimfan.

Dragonball: Evolution

Dragonball: Evolution
Chris Stuckman covers the dreaded DB Evolution movie. I've taken some jabs at this strange movie too.
Can you really make a live version of an animated show like this? In DB and DBZ, you can go pretty much anywhere and see anything. In live action, you are limited by you budget. However, the is total shit to begin with and screws up the lore of the shows. I have to say that I can watch this movie all the way through because it is so laughable bad.
There are two things good about this movie...
1 Jamie Chung is in this movie. I think she is really hot in everything she's in. Damn. I don't care if she's bad.
2 Yun-Fat Chow is pretty good: It was good casting on their part, it is too bad the script couldn't rise to is level of acting he's on.  
You tried and failed to get this character right.

Do you Superbowl?

Do you Superbowl?
Nope. “Are you going to watch the game?” I get asked this all the time. I not interested in watching it mainly because I find sports boring. Maybe it is my nerd culture growing up and I really don't like sports fans. It is okay to make fun of fanboys for dressing up in SW and Trek outfits, but when sports fans do it is okay. They should both be made fun of equally.
Whenever I get asked the Superbowl question, I just say, “Frankly, I hope they both lose.” I do this just to get a laugh or a rise out of someone.
I might see and discuss the ads, but I won't be watching the bowl. The only bowls I will be watching are the toilet and salad bowls. 

Aren't these the same?   

Pornstar Mugshots

Pornstar Mugshots
 Pornstars and arrest go together like peanut butter and jelly. I am almost certain it is required to have a police record and work in the Jizz Biz. Well, finally something good has come out of Tumblr in the form of Pornstar Mugshots. Someone has compiled (cumpiled?) most of the frequent arrest shots (pun intended?) and put them in one place.
You can check it out here, but it very very NSFW with pictures of them during their day job in other words porn. And, if you don't like seeing gay porn pictures, this site is NOT for you. You will see a lot of them being charged with drug possession and my girl Roxy. I sill think weed and prostitution should be legal at this point. While I won't partake in either one, I'd be okay with people smoking weed and doing the deed.
I like mugshots, because it shows us at our complete worst with anger and confusion on our faces. I haven't had the glory bestowed on me of getting arrested yet. But, being a black man does up my chances. 
Note some of them are really bad mugshots and clearly these people are burning the candle on both ends of the stick.   But some photo well under the mugshot camera.

Supergirl and Flash plan to crossover

Supergirl and Flash plan to crossover
It is about damn time too. 
 From Comic, (("We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we starting making Supergirl – The Flash and Supergirl are teaming up!,” said The Flash and Supergirl Executive Producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg. “We want to thank Grant Gustin for making the time to come visit (on top of his already immense workload) and all of the folks at CBS, The CW, Warner Bros. and DC for working this out. And finally thanks to the fans and journalists who have kept asking for this to happen. It is our pleasure and hope to create an episode worthy of everyone's enthusiasm and support.” ))
Now, the bigger question becomes this; Is the Flash/Arrow universe set in the same universe as Supergirl/Superman? Keep in mind that Superman is alive and well in the Supergirl series and is in contact with Supergirl all the time. Superman seems to have been doing his own thing for a while now. There is no mention of a Man of Steel in the Flash/Arrow universe. I kind of hope they do merge the two. However, Flash does have the portals to other universes scattered throughout the city and Flash could end up in Supergirl's universe. 

 DC Comics TV division is doing everything right. 

Riley Reid and Melissa Moore Almost Twins, but not

Riley Reid and Melissa Moore Almost Twins, but not
I've been a huge fan of Riley Reid for a long time. She literally looks like one of those girls-next-door. She's so damn cute and tiny that you would likely see her working in the mall instead of doing hardcore porn. However, she is a pornstar. 
 I have NEVER wanted a doughnut more than now.  Damn.  
I was checking out a video and noticed Riley in a video and I thought, “Did Riley Reid get a boob-job?” Please, tell me she didn't get one. That was her thing, being small framed. After taking a closer look, I realized the woman looking much like Riley Reid wasn't her at all, but another pornstar completely.
See, it is uncanny how much these two ladies look alike. Of course, these two girls had to do a movie together. I think MM is cute too, but I see her being a modified clone of my girl RR. And, I wouldn't kick her out of my bed either. Hell, I wouldn't kick anyone out of my bed given the state of my love life or lack of it.

The Imitation Game

The Imitation Game
 This intense and depressing little movie is very thoughtful and clever. With some good characters and acting. It is not action-packed, but a smart take on WWII spy issues, information and code-cracking.
Based on the book by Andrew Hodges, the movie deals with a group of intelligent people in the UK trying to figure out the enigma code machine that the Nazi had. The British government hired Alan Turing and others try to break the code during WWII. Turing created a large machine to help break the code, but people still had to figure out the code-key because it reset everyday. This is that story.
Yes, Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing is one of the best things about the movie and he totally kicks ass as this torn/strange character. He plays a really intelligent guy that likes trying to figure out codes and making his own code language. He is drawn to the code-cracking team. I love Cumberbatch's introduction into the movie against Charles Dance.
Turing is a jerk, but we get to see why he is this way. And, his character does change when he meets his match in the enigma machine. He needs to work with other people,  because the code machine is his worst enemy.  He has to open up to receiving help. This is simply a great performance by Cumberbatch.
Keira Knightley is a breath of fresh air with a movie that is pretty much just men in the cast. You may have written her off in the Pirates movies, but she is great as the female lead. And the direction they take with the character is a neat and interesting way to deal with the “gay issue” of the story. Her character has a very interesting take on social norms of the 1940s in the UK. She is smart, but she has to fit in with what is required of a woman of that era. Anyway, she has good chemistry with Cumberbatch. Yes, she is very good when she finds a good script and director, so she shines in this movie.
With a rather silly movie title, the movie is extremely well-made. The editing and directing are pretty good and you have to good editing due to timeline jumping. There are three main time periods, Childhood, War Time and Post War (50s). In other hands, this movie would have been a narrative mess.
The movie does a convincing job conveying the frustration of resetting everything at the end of the day because the Nazi reset the codes. And, they had to reset their code-cracking methods and start fresh. I also like we get to see the early stages of computers with the Turing machine that was a code cracking machine. In this movie, Turing envisioned the computer age that happened some 20 years later.
Charles Dance (AKA Tywin Lannister ) is also in the movie as a military commander. He hates Turing and seems to carry over that stern demeanor from Game of Thrones. He's a great guy to hate.
The movie also deals with the gay issue that is often NOT talked about that happened in Britain . I had no idea that being gay was illegal and you could spend a lot of time in jail for just being a gay male. The movie opened my eyes to this. THIS plays a huge role in the other portion of the movie.
The movie is very well-directed and smartly acted from everyone around. Cumberbatch is outstanding in the leading role and he carries every scene with exception of the flashbacks to the younger Turing kid. The movie is great, but very depressing and will leave you feeling angry
Grade: A-

The Fine Bros repeal their React-act

The Fine Bros repeal their React-act
I did a bit of research and people on YT seem to really hate the MCN the Fine Brothers are connected to named Fullscreen. The fact this was happening and they were creating their (in name only) MCN really made people become mistrusting of their true intentions. They were trademarking the word “react” in order to corner the market in reaction videos in some people's opinions.
From, ((Late last night the Fine Bros took down both their React World announcement and the subsequent calcification video. They also posted an apology message to Medium that states they will discontinue React World, ))
And, they're take away their content and copyright strikes, which is a smart move after pulling this “boner”.
They've been losing so many subscribers that there is literally a live ticker and website watching their fans bailing their channel. Check out the site. It is a real shame because I actually love their videos and I am a subscriber to their channel. I won't be unsubscribing though. They'll bounce back within a year and most people will forget.
This video clears up some of the shady agreement deals they were going to use.
