Kids at restaurant

I would have told her to get her sensitive-entitled ass out of my restaurant. Then again, I am not a manager. This manager is going out his way to be nice, but she keeps getting more and more angry.
From what I am guessing, her tribe of kids were too loud. And, people started to complain. The whole point of me NOT having kids is not having to hear them wherever I go.
Just keep your kids in line.

H3H3 being sues by Bold Guy (Hoss)

H3H3 being sues by Bold Guy (Hoss)
yeah, this is serious business. I am a huge fan of H3H3, and I was in total shock when this came across my video feed. This has gone too far. H3H3 did a side video making fun of the dude-bro Matt Hoss (Bold Guy).
They made fun of his Bold Guy character and he got butt-hurt and sued them. Really? And, I love that it was over his shitty YouTube channel.
For the lulz, here is a video explaining the concept of the Bold Guy.
I guess this guy doesn't understand the the hornets' net he kicked and pissed off the internet.
After watching Hoss' videos, I tried watching at least seven or eight, he is clearly full of himself. He didn't like what he saw from H3H3 and is taking this to court. Look, the vids are bad, but in a The Room sort of way. Plus, Hoss' videos all feel like something out of 2005 (iFilm era). 
I will be donating, once I figure out how, to the cause that has been set up
1 Don't harass Hoss. But, make sure you explain to him why this is wrong, in the nicest way possible: Though, I doubt he's understand.
2 If you are subscribed, then unsubscribe: Yet, I think his audience is more of the GUY/DUDE/Bro types that don't know about the larger issues of copyright and other issues plaguing YouTube.
His latest video has 40 thousand dislikes. God bless you, Internet. Plus, many of his other videos are sliding into the 4-10k range of dislikes. You better believe there will be more to come. And, he might want to disable his comments too.
Make sure to head over to the legal support page to help H3H3 with their legal funds. Right now, the Go Fund Me amount is at 115k (of 100k) when I saw it last night it was in the early 90s. This was raised in one day. Damn, Internet.
Here is the deleted video that gotH3H3 in trouble.
H3H3's reaction video is rather tame.

Worst Doom footage

Chrono Trigger warning: This gameplay is bad
The gameplay is horrendous and this is coming from a guy that isn't skilled in first person shooters. However, this is very sad from even my standards. If someone didn't know it, this preview reel would make Doom look like a difficult game to control.
A lot of people are attacking Polygon for having people that aren't fans of certain game genres reviewing games those type of games. Others are attacking them for clearly having a newbie play the “first 30 minutes”. You want to show off the perks and strengths of the game, but this footage looks lazy.
Polygon removed comments and ratings from the preview video due to all the negative attention. At this point, I'd own up to it. “Yeah, we goofed. Sorry.”
There are two things to take away from this shit.
1 I don't think you have to be a fan of the genre that you're reviewing as long as you note that in your review. There are a few reviewers that hate the Star Trek universe and they note that in their reviews. Just note that you are not a fan or well-versed in FPS games. As long as people know that going in that's fine, because I review things I am not a fan member of all the time.
2 I lean on the side that THIS gamer playing the sizzle reel isn't interested in Doom and just didn't care, which is why he keeps missing and letting the bad guys attack him. That is kind of sad given there were probably gamers on Polygon's staff that would have given a shit about Doom.

Some Rad Chrono Cover songs

I found this guyon YouTube and he's a kickass musician. He does all the instrument and edits them together. A lot of people do this on YT, but this guy is really good. His name is Poop Poop Fart and that is the best name ever. I wish I came up that name.
Check out his cover of Chrono Trigger's Corridors of Times. This was the first video I saw from this guy and I was amazed how well constructed the cover was.
He does a lot of covers of anime songs too, but I am more fascinated by his video game covers. This makes me wish I had stayed in music because today I would have probably been a YT music guy. Oh well.. BTW, his profile picture for his YT site is clearly a reference to Michael Jackson's Thriller album cover. 

Anyway, here are a few more of my favorite Poop Poop Fart cover tracks. Enjoy.

Fox Logo variant for Fantastic Four (2015)

Fox Logo variant for Fantastic Four (2015)
Did you catch it? As the screen starts to fade on the 20th Century logo, the “F” stays on screen a few seconds longer. This was a clever thing I noticed when watching the movie. I actually reversed it and watched it again. Most of the X-Men movies do the same thing. The “X” stays on screen longer than rest of the logo.
Here's the X-Men logo with the “X” fade and the X-Men theme added to the studio logo. I love this variant the best.

Captain America Civil War (Part 2 of 3)

Captain America Civil War (Part 2 of 3)

Let's start out with the fun bits, Marvel really does Spider-Man brilliantly and spot on. Unlike the last two Spider-Man versions, this one is the best by far. It is fitting that it is Marvel's casting and working with Sony that got us a spot on Spider-Man. He is clearly the Spider-Man from the 80s comic book and 90s cartoon series with some elements from the Ultimate version as well.
I also like that Marvel didn't dwell on the origin story again just like the Amazing Spider-Man reboot did. We see Spider-Man already being a superhero and just now starting to get his suit right. And, his suit is closer to suit we've come to love and his eyes move around in the mask...thanks to Stark.
Tom Holland is a cool kid and carries the Peter Parker attitude perfectly. He's full ofpop culture references sort of like Stark. Plus, Spidy loves being in the civil war fight because he gets tot see all of the heroes he looked up to including Cap. His flight among all the heroes is one of the best things to watch in the film. Garfield was good, but Holland is better. Plus, he has a New York accent to boot. Every time he is on screen I smile.
By the way, Aunt May is hot and being played by Marisa Tomei. How does someone get hotter when they get older? Damn, Marisa Tomei. I like they're not doing the gray-haired Aunt May. Plus, she might have a thing with Mr. Stark. Great casting and making her a GiLF. And, we really don't have another origin story thankfully.
I can't wait to see the follow up Sony Spider-Man movie (with Tony Stark). I've never been this pumped with Spider-Man since the trailer for Spider-Man 2. Spider-Man is so charming as this young boy that you'll fall in love with this character. DC, take note.
Black Panther 
 Damn, they really brought it with this introduction. You can clearly tell he looks up father and we only get a few minute between the two. It was clever that we get to see the new hero born in this movie instead of his own movie.
I love his costume design and it looks practical in the more-grounded world of Cap's movies. Also, notice that he makes little to no sound when he runs around in that chase scene.
Chadwick Boseman is third or fourth lead in this movie. Boseman is great as the Black Panther and he moves like a ninja and I can't wait to see his standalone movie. Damn, he's a good character and has a full arc in the story. Plus, his character is important in the plot and not shoehorned in for diversity reasons. With the larger world being concerned with superheroes, it makes since to my a diverse group of heroes. You have to add character that make sense to the story and have an impact to the narrative. Panther fits that, plus, he is a strong black character.
Boseman carries himself with such strength that it makes sense that he holds his own against Tony and Steve Rogers. What a cool character. Yes, it is important to see strong minorities in movies, let's just make sure they're important to the overall story.
T'Challa / Black Panther is directly taken from the updated version of Panther from the main comic book universe, except they can't use the X-Men stuff involved with his character. He was in a relationship with Storm in the comic books.
Like Spider-Man, Marvel knows where they're taking this character, and it shows. Again, I can't wait to see his standalone movie.
 Was his suit updated for this movie?
Okay, he's the comic relief, but he's very funny. When the movie deals with some heavy issues, you need a character that is sort of thrust into the major conflict. Like Spider-Man, he is rather new to this superhero business. I love how they make his feel out of place because he doesn't view himself as being on any team. He is literally kidnapped and thrown into team Cap. He simply goes along with it and being a little lost in why he's there.
Paul Rudd is funny as always basically playing Paul Rudd. The mixture between Spider-Man and Ant-Man really make this a clever and funny fight scene.
Spoiler alert: Ant-Man becomes Giant-Man. It is a real treat to see. The special effects for this scene are amazing. I had a huge smile on my face when Ant-Man got bigger. And, I love how team Iron Man takes down Giant-Man. It will be interesting to see where they take the character after this.

The Boyfriend Bomb: AKA The Boyfriend Card

  The Boyfriend Bomb: AKA The Boyfriend Card
You speak the true-true, Demetri Martin.
From Urban Dictionary, ((When you're about to ask a girl out and during the conversation she intentionally inserts a line about her boyfriend so you'll back off. ))
Don't you just HATE it when you totally hit it off with a girl and really really dig her and she mentions she has a boyfriend rather offhandedly? It happens all the time doesn't it?
Back when I still gave a shit about dating, I would find myself really hitting it off with some really cool chicks and boom she mentions her boyfriend and that when I realize I never had a chance. I even received the hubby-bomb after spending an entire party hitting it off with this woman. And, she threw in the hubby bomb at the end of the party as a parting gift.
The boyfriend bomb is a little different than the friend zone. I am not sure which one hurts more, the friend zone or the BB. I've been B-Friend Bombed and friend zoned numerous times and I now know just when its going to happen. Both of these pretty much stopped me from pursuing dating or even asking people out. I've lost count as to how many times these things have happened to me.
The friend zone is more of a long term thing, the BB is usually sudden.

Whole Foods: Love Wins cake was a fake...

Whole Foods: Love Wins cake was a fake...
Well, I was hoping this story would have an okay finish. Yeah, this whole thing seemed like a scam, and Whole Foods proved it with the video. Now, something has come out about the whole thing.
From Inquisitr, ((“I want to apologize to Whole Foods and its team members for questioning the company’s commitment to its values, and especially the baker associate who I understand was put in a terrible position because of my actions,” Brown said in a statement, adding that he was dropping the lawsuit.))
Whole Foods has come out being a complete champ in this situation. They stood up to the fake writing and defended their employee. And, now, they've dropped their counter-lawsuit. I might have to start shopping at Whole Foods now.
What I don't like is Brown would have continued with the lawsuit despite the fact it was a fake if he wasn't caught faking it.
As I said before, this is a low thing to do, because it takes away from real discrimination. He knew he was drowning in debt and wanted a quick fix. So, he created this fake outrage story in order to get some cash.

Fantastic Four (2015)

Fantastic Four (2015)

I've gone into detail some of the problems this movie faced on my blog, and I can't help but note these problems are the reasons this movie will go down as a bad superhero movie and generally a train wreck of epic proportions. Despite the big budget, it feels like no one really tried making a good movie. However, it is not a bad-bad movie like say Steel or Catwoman, but surprisingly not as fun as the 2005 FF.
Did we really need a reboot for the FF franchise from Fox? Nope, but Fox was about to lose their rights to the property. So, they threw this movie together with an “in over his head” director at the helm. You got tons rewrites and re-shoots with the director sitting on the sidelines. Plus, you had a director that denounced him own movie just before it was released.
First act is pretty good, but the third act is a total mess. The movie is a compete and utter mess and you can see the duct-tape where the studio pieced together the various cuts of the film into one cut. Fox and Josh Trank butted heads in pre and post-production, and it shows all over this movie. Then Fox tried to do CPR on this movie without Trank.
I think Trank didn't have the chops to make a FF movie, and I only think Marvel has the knowledge to write a proper FF movie. Unlike the X-Men, the FF team works better in the larger superhero universe. (Sue Storm plays a role in the comic book version of Civil War.)
-Planet Zero: I found the alien planet to be fascinating in the first act of the movie, but it loses all coolness in the really bad third act. This origin has more in common to the Ultimate versions of the FF team.
-When they were kids: If the flashbacks to the two heroes was important to the story, why is there no payoff to them in the third act?
-The Third Act: The movie changes gears and the entire tone of the movie is different right down to the acting and dialogue. You can clearly see the moment when the actors stopped giving a shit. The dialogue, while not great, was okay up until the third act. It switches to the main characters telling us what they're going to do and spelling it out. You can see the actors not really giving a shit about the re-shoots, due to most of the re-shoots being done for the last act. The third act just harms this movie beyond repair because it makes zero sense compared to first two acts.
-Kate Mara's hair: You want to know where some of the massive re-shoot happened? Watch Kate's hair switch from real hair to a bad wig between shots and completely changes in the third act.
-Dr. Doom: What hell is Dr. Doom's motivation from his first appearance until the end? This is by far one of the worst and under-developed characters in the movie. If you're going to have a villain in your movie, why only have him be the main bad guy literally in the last ten minutes? I know that they were going for the Ultimate version of Doom, but at least give him a more compelling back story? What is up with the dropped blogger thing? Why did he return with the science team in the third act?
-Johnny Storm: At least the first two versions of Johnny Storm had personality. Here, Michael B. Jordan is given NOTHING to do. We don't even get to see his hot-hotheadedness and jokey nature. These things made Johnny Storm cool. Let's make Johnny Storm black, but we won't give him nothing else to do.
-Dr. Doom's super powers are to pop people's heads like balloons and manipulate rocks? : Yes, his super power is to move rocks around and throw them at the FF team. Huh? Was this power in the original script? Rocks seem to be a central theme in this movie even if the writers didn't realize it.
-good actors/bad movie: Yep most of the cast is very good, but the uneven script betrays them. However, the acting goes from being good to wooden in the third act. Nobody wanted to do those re-shoots.
-Miles Teller: Not bad as Reed Richards, but he is wasted.
Avoid this movie.  
Grade: F+

How can she slap? Reborn

I love when people leave comments on blog posts from the early 2000s. It is amusing because I was a different blogger, and it is just a sample of that era of pop culture and I love when it pisses someone off today. The comment below appeared on my blog recently about my post about How Can She Slap.
From Anon, ((Anonymous said...
Man you keep blathering about how you don't respect him for being on this reality show but is your lame blog about the reality show any better? ))
Yeah, this blog is shit and it is shit that has been running for about 10+ years. However, you decided to comment on a blog post from 2008. Really? You took time to look up something from 2008 (meme) and decided to read the damn post. Then , you had to get through the blogger anti-spam thing to leave a comment. That takes dedication to leave a comment on a post no one really remembers from 2008. Then, you reminded me my blog is shit. Thank you, I respect you.
Maybe we can go out for a hipster coffee or something.
Like the prick that defended the Love Guru by attacking me, did you love the reality show and the guy?
