James Update

You read them right to left.

I am slowly learning the Arabic alphabet and learning how to put words together. I know a few greetings and things like “thank you” and “door”.

I am much better at writing words than saying them at the moment. There’s something neat about connecting letters.

I’m getting better at it. I’m just a little slow. I have to keep in mind there are about five-six people from the Middle East and Northern Africa also taking the class and they can speak much better.

However, I am a little worried about a homework assignment. At some point, I have to greet an Arabic speaking person and attempt to talk to them in Arabic. I’ll probably come across as a babbling fool and they’ll hand me money or call the cops.

For your enjoyment, here’s a video I’ve seen and heard for about a hundred times.

The problem with Babylon A.D.

It was at this point that Vin Diesel realized he left the iron and the coffeemaker on back at his house.

Babylon A.D. isn’t exactly receiving positive praise…not even from its own director.

Director Mathieu Kassovitz isn’t trying to put a positive spin on his movie. He’s letting his true feelings about the movie be known to the world. He hates the freaking film.

Read below from the link above

(("I'm very unhappy with the film," he says. "I never had a chance to do one scene the way it was written or the way I wanted it to be. The script wasn't respected. Bad producers, bad partners, it was a terrible experience."))

He places most of the blame on Fox. Even before his comments, bloggers have stated that the movie was in trouble. Fox wanted a shorter family-friendly movie. Fox and another studio have two completely different cuts of the film. It all depends on which country and studio releases it.

((It's pure violence and stupidity," he admits. "The movie is supposed to teach us that the education of our children will mean the future of our planet. All the action scenes had a goal: They were supposed to be driven by either a metaphysical point of view or experience for the characters... instead parts of the movie are like a bad episode of 24."))

Wow, that 24 comment was a low blow, but I like it. It’s refreshing to hear a director speak his mind.

It should be noted that the original release date was February 29, 2008. The movie would have been better suited for that February release date.

It should also be known that the movie has too many similarities to Children of Men.

Taken from the Wiki page on Babylon

((In the near future, Toorop (Vin Diesel) is a mercenary who takes the job of escorting a woman named Aurora from Central Asia to New York. While he thinks this is just an ordinary mission, he gradually finds out that his guest is carrying twins that have the potential to become the next Messiahs — and everybody wants to get their hands on them.))

And Children of Men (

((Set in 2027, when no child has been born for 18 years and science is at loss to explain the reason, African and East European societies collapse and their dwindling populations migrate to England and other wealthy nations. In a climate of nationalistic violence, a London peace activist turned bureaucrat Theo Faron, joins forces with his revolutionary ex-wife Julian in order to save mankind by protecting a woman who has mysteriously became pregnant))

So, we’ve already seen this movie before.

I will see this on DVD though. I hope there is a director’s cut, but given the bad relationship between the director and the studio, that seems unlikely.

The Kardashian Union

Kim Kardashian in a cheerleading outfit…

Here is the only reason to waste your money on Disaster Movie. However, you can always see more of Kimberly Kardashian in another movie…with better acting. Think of it as a home movie with sex, and it co-stars Ray J.

The only reason for her fame now is that damn sex tape, which was pointed out by one of the writers of the Agony Booth.

Zeus may have blessed her with a nice ass, but he forgot talent and brains.

I personally think Brooke Hogan and Kardashian should fight it out on a Pay Per View.

By the way, Disaster Movie is sitting at 00% at Rotten Tomatoes. It might go up, because it wasn’t viewed for critics. Shocking

10 reasons John Locke is one of the most fascinating characters on TV

Over the past few months, I’ve been watching the first two seasons of Lost on It’s been easier to see the bigger picture and the fact they are setting up things ahead of time.

One character that continues to stand out from the rest is John Locke. A wonderfully flawed but interesting character masterfully played by Terry O’Quinn. O’Quinn would later win an Emmy Award for his role.

At first, he merely comes across as “The Great White Hunter”, but he’s much more than that. He’s not exactly a good person, but not a villain either. You see a man that comes from pathetic beginnings, but truly find his calling on the island. If only we could all be that lucky.

Here are 10 reasons John Locke is one of the most fascinating characters on TV right now.

10. Mr. Locke enjoys blowing shit up: Repeatedly, this guy has proven he’s like a child with firecrackers. He’s blown up The Swan, The Flame and the Others’ Submarine. Don’t let this guy get a hold of explosives.

9. He doesn’t like Mikhail AKA Patchy too much: Not only does Locke throw Patchy into that sonic barrier to kill him. He then beats the snot out of Patchy when he wants to see Jacob. Who knows what would have happened to Patchy if Locke still had that C4 on him.

8. Looked into the Smoke Monster and Survived: As he chased a boar into the bushes, the smoke monster appears and Locke merely looks at it. Granted, Mr. Eko also did the same thing, but Eko was as a yo-yo when Smokey got pissed.

7. Jacob can talk to him: Probably one of the creepiest moments in the third season happened when Jacob called out “Help me” to Locke. This shows that Locke has the power to listen to Jacob just like Ben Linus. Not all of us can see and hear creepy old ghosts in old cabins.

6. He hunts and gathers his own food: During the very first week on the island, he goes out and hunts for boar. Any man that comes with his own set of hunting knives is the kind of guy you want on your team.

5. Is one with the Island: He seems to have a spiritual connection to the island. It’s kind of like the force, but weaker. Hell, he even spouts out Yoda like speeches.

4. He’s indestructible…sort of: He has been shot in the gut, had a rod through his leg, lost his voice and survived an electromagnetic explosion.

3. Throws a knife into the back of Naomi: Yeah, throwing a knife into the back of an attractive lady like Naomi was mean, but still badass.

2. Becomes the Leader of the Others: As far as we know…It seems natural.

1. He was wheelchair bound, but fully recovered after he crashed on the island: There’s no other way around, this is the reason he’s such an interesting character. He witnessed a miracle before his very eyes. He firsthand discovers the true power of the island and is the reason for his faith.

11 Minutes of Postal...Head for the hills

11 Minutes of Postal...

Man, this is bad. I can't even stand 11 minutes of this mess. I dare you to sit through 11 minutes of this video.

This is a piece of crap; Uwe Boll can’t even make a stupid comedy correctly. Making movies like Step Up 2 the Streets is bad, but this is just plain crap. I don’t even know to whom this movie is aiming for. None of the jokes are funny and the direction is just bad.

I haven’t decided if I should rent this to review or that way you don’t have to watch it.


((Gary Coleman was offered the chance to reprise his role as one of the central characters from the original Postal 2 (2002) (VG) video game, but turned down the offer because he didn't want to swear))

When Gary Coleman turns down a role, you know this movie is a mess.

The Fast and the Furious 4

Check out the HD trailer to The Fast and the Furious 4 (4 Fast 4 Furious)

I’m not the biggest fan of these movies, but they are fun to watch and the driving is very good. I just think the acting isn’t that well conceived. Hey, it’s popcorn fun.

They released a trailer for the movie and I have to say that the scene at the beginning was fun to watch.

Here’s a bit of random facts.

~Right now, it’s just being called Fast and Furious.

~The director of the third movie, Justin Lin, is also directing this one.

~Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez are returning. Brewster hasn’t done much since the first film. Michael in the Hatch shot Rodriguez in the heart.

~This is a prequel to Tokyo Drift.

James Update

Because I am learning a completely different language this semester. I thought it interesting to see funny How to Speak English videos.

I came across this little video and laughed. I thought it was kind of funny. For me, I usually answer the phone with this, “Who is this motherf'er!? You best be not calling long distance.”

English American: It is funny hearing the differences between the British and American English.

Learning Arabic

Basically, I'm learning Cairo-Arabic this year and I am just starting to learn the alphabet. It's going to take a while for me to get the hang of it. There are a couple of letters I can't pronounce, however writing them isn't much of a problem.

Saying the Greetings are a bit of a problem, but I'm getting there.

No more kids

No Kids in Movie Theaters? I'd be down for that.

(the link he's sourcing to)

I don't have kids, and I don't want them. I always get angry when I'm in a restaurant and have to hear a screaming baby or crying child. Since I am not a parent, I shouldn't have to endure bad parenting with their children.

At this point, I can’t sit beside a family with young kids. For some reason, in inappropriate movies, they seem to bring their little devil spawns out to ruin my movie experience.

During my second viewing of the Dark Knight, I made certain I sat far away from the crowd of moviegoers. I had three empty seats beside me. Well, during the preview trailers a mother and her very young boy came up and sat in the seats near me.

When the movie started, her little boy said, “Where’s the Joker? Where’s Batman?” He kept saying it over and over again. And, his mother did nothing and ignored him. I got pissed and went to bathroom and came back to the theater to a different location.

I thought I was in the clear.

To my right, another child just ran around the seats, making noises and jumping up and down with his parents doing nothing to stop them.

So, yeah, I'm down with childless theaters for those that want it. Can we kick out the teenagers as well?

Box Office Jam

When a guy pulls up in a car like this at the drive-thru, don't mess up his order.

Box Office Jam

It was kind of a slow week for movies and will probably continue to be for the next few weeks.

1. Tropic Thunder $65.8M: The movie is never going to be a huge hit, because it’s too inside and only people that like movies will get all the jokes. But, it is still a hit.

2. The House Bunny $14.5M: This might have something to do with Anna Faris’ charm to both the male and female groups. I like her and I think she’s a good actress. Plus, seeing her in a skimpy outfit isn’t bad either.

3. Death Race $12.6M: Jason Statham drives around in a fast car and kills people. Sounds like every other film he’s done. Think of this as Crank mixed with The Transporter and The Italian Job.

4. The Dark Knight $489M: Should reach the 500 mark in the states in a few weeks.

5. Star Wars: The Clone Wars $25M: I’m not going to see this in theaters, especially when the last three movies have had better ratings and reviews than this one. Because they didn’t spend any money on acting or animation, this has turned a profit.

The Gaming Historian takes on Kirby

While I was a Sega boy, I found the story behind Kirby to be interesting. I always thought Kirby came from Super Mario Brothers. I thought he was a pink/nice version of those Boo Diddley ghosts from the Mario Brothers. (Boo Diddley was a riff on the late musician Bo Diddley)

Kirby also enjoys dancing with Snoop Dog

the complete version of Michael Jackson’s “Bad” video

Here it is, the complete version of Michael Jackson’s “Bad” video. MJ from the very beginning always had ‘event’ music videos. There would always be a story that led up to the musical portion. He would later make even bigger music/film videos in his career. So, this was a bit of foreshadowing to his bigger film Moonwalker.

Most people haven’t seen or remember that “Bad” had a ‘film’ intro at the beginning, but here it is. MTV would only show the shorter Music Video version of “Bad” most of the time, while pulling out the longer version every so often. (Even the music portion in the extended version is longer.)

So sit back and enjoy this longer version. (make sure to click on the second part)

Part One


Part Two


This music video plays like a short film. It almost has a student film feel to it, with the black and white color contrast at the beginning and switches to color later on. Despite some silly things, its not a bad little flick.

Wesley Snipes plays a significantly larger role in this version. He’s actually very good with the limited amount of character development. Besides MJ, he has most of the lines. And, I love the moment he and MJ have a handshake at the end. That’s a great moment, that you don’t get a sense of what that means without watching the first half of the video.

So, enjoy watching everything that leads up to the dance off in the Bad video.

Shannon Elizabeth

Great, pre-ripped shirts with pre-sweaty stains: 200 bucks

What the hell happened to Shannon Elizabeth? (From American Pie to Dancing)

I'd be the first to say that I am really attracted to Shannon Elizabeth.

Ever since she exposed herself in that pie-f’er’s room in the first American Pie movie, I’ve liked her. Sure her accent was terrible and her acting was stiff, but any woman willing to get naked playing the hot foreign exchange student is all right by me.

Shannon Elizabeth could have easily created a career for herself, but something happened and now she does reality shows like Washed Up Poker Games and Dancing With the Has-Been Stars.

So, she went from doing bad movies to crappy reality shows. That’s like wrapping shit in rotten soft taco shells. It doesn’t help.

Tomcats proved that when she didn’t take her top off or bottom off, she couldn't carry a movie. But, that movie was bad all around. Thir13en Ghosts was just horrid, and again she was not the big problem.

However, word is she is a good poker player. She could make Rounders II.

Maybe Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust is her relaunch?

Speed Racer gaming

Speed Racer Videogame suffers from poorly received Movie

I'm of the rule that most videogame movies suck and videogames based on movies suck even worst. However, it appears the extremely poor box office take and negative reviews from the Speed Racer movie has had an after effect (after birth?) on the videogame version. The producers felt they had a good game on their hands.

Taken from the link above by Mr. Lee

(("When we were first asked to do Speed Racer the property it was incredible, it was very exciting. It was a film by the Wachowski brothers and it was about car racing - awesome that's going to make a great game." ))

I think there is always a risk in merchandising that your spin off products could take a hit if the movie is a bomb. Do you remember all that merchandise from the first Hulk movie?

(("When you make a game based on a license you really are playing roulette - you don't know how the film is going play out in the market," he said. ))

With a price tag of 120 million, it has only made $89,236,613 of that change back worldwide.

I remember Paramount making claims that their Tomb Raider movie franchise was harmed by the poor quality of the Tomb Raider games.

~Georgian News reporter that got shot: This is a tough woman. She gets shot, doesn't cry and continues to report the news. This is the type of woman I want. A woman that can take a few hits from sniper fire is alright in my book. If I ever get shot at, I know she has my back.

Btw, shooting at a news reporter? What threat do they are cause you?

~Wait, John McCain doesn't know how many houses he owns? Are we getting forgetful in our old age, McCain. Damn it, I really used to like John McCain, but with the Paris Hilton thing and this I'm started to dislike the dude.

~Jerry Seinfeld is getting paid 10 million dollars to promote Microsoft in some upcoming ads. Way to keep it fresh there, Bill Gates. Seinfeld hasn't had a hit weekly show in years. Best remark comes from Andrew Kretzer, (("I find it ironic that in order to 'out hip' Apple (NSDQ:AAPL), Microsoft is hiring a comedian whose prime was a decade ago. They may as well have Phil Collins do the background music while they're at it," he said. ))

I know Bill Gates thinks he's funny, but I'd say he's not the demo MS wants to attract. I think the X-Box marketing guys might be the ones you look to promote a product.

Won't most people really identify with him on those credit card ads?

~There were two things that kept me from getting laid in high school.

1 That 1977 Monte Carlo painted poop brown that I owned as my first car: No girl in their right mind would be seen driving around in that piece of crap with me. All the cool guys had nice cars with rims and speakers, while my push-button radio barely worked. And, I believe burned out after a thunder storm. Things were so depressing.

2 Marching Band: Yeah, being a member of the marching band kept the girls from looking my way. If you weren't in a sporting group, they pretty much ignored you. You can't spit game with a tuba wrapped around you.

That is probably the reason I didn't go to the prom, however I'm sort of thankful for that.

What Happened to Wesley Snipes? By Rotten Tomatoes

His next movie: How to stay out of jail!
I took a stroll through one of the Blockbusters store and came What Happened to Wesley Snipes? By Rotten Tomatoes

I took a stroll through one of the Blockbusters store and came across a display of Wesley Snipes newest movie The Art of War II: Betrayal. I heard they were making another one, but I didn’t know they were making it direct to video. Then I thought, “Did we need another Art of War?”

I mentioned this before, but it seems like Wesley Snipes’ career is now in the direct to DVD realm. The link above shows the downward spiral of this guy.

I wasn’t the only one to notice this too.

This guy first started out doing Sports comedies like Wildcats and Major League. He even was the main bad guy from that Michael Jackson Bad video. He received critical acclaim for showing up in Spike Lee’s films too.

He freaked and pissed me off when he became a drag queen in To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar. What the heck was that about?

Heidi Montag’s Overdosin (review) (The Hills have ears)

Heidi Montag’s Overdosin (review)

Holy Crap, this is a terrible song.

I didn’t know who Heidi Montag was until the Agony Booth wrote a review on one of her songs.

Being on "The Hills" (a show I’ve never seen or ever will) probably gave her some attention and someone thought they’d cash in on her fame, or lack of it. Some producer hooked her up to that auto-tuning software and crapped out another song.

This song is appalling, really appalling. The music sounds like it came from a bad Sega Saturn racing game. And, it doesn’t fit with the singing that Montag belts out (blurts out). I could make something better with some shareware programs and a box of rocks.

Montag proves that her voice is so phony and bland that it makes Britney Spears sound like Whitney Huston. It sounds so fake that even George Lucas would have a problem with the extensive computer work. I mean really, how can anyone even listen to this and enjoy it?

Her voice is damaging the fabric of space and time, creating a field of anti-time above the Earth. She must be stopped before she destroys the human race.

Since when does showing up on a flux-reality show prove that you can sing?

I’m usually a guy that tells everyone to follow his or her dreams, but I can’t recommend that to Heidi.

Heidi Montag, please stop singing. As Captain Kirk said once, “It’s better you, better for me and better for them. Think about it.”

This song gives a whole new meaning to the expression, “We’ll fix it in post.”

Great Police Academy Moments

No matter what he does, GW Bailey will always be Capt. Thaddeus Harris to me. “Move it, move it!”

Btw, he played the same type of character in Short Circuit and he played off of Steve Guttenberg again too.


Great Police Academy Moments

I used to watch all those Police Academy movies all the time. I espically liked the first one, because it was R-rated. But strangely enough, they did get away with a few R-rated moments in the PG-13 ones. The movies progressively got worst and worst with each follow up, until they ended it with the straight to video Mission to Moscow.

Here are a few funny moments

Jones messes with some stuffy rich people: This one is priceless. I loved the loud munching on the burger and nose blowing.

Yama Yama Scene: Crap movie, great scene from PA4 Citizens on Patrol: Please note the very young David Spade. “because I'm hungry, man.”

Best Self-Defense move ever: Leslie Easterbrook was the sex symbol for all the Police Academy movies. That was a lot of woman and I remember really having a thing for her when I was younger.

Leslie jumps into the pool: I love that all the guys jump in the pool and all the woman just stand there. Yeah, this was in a PG-13 movie.

Bonus Scene from Space Balls with Michael Winslow: I know I posted this before, but this is still one of my favorite scenes. I love Rick Moranis's reaction to the speaker/microphone joke, in which he rips the phone off the computer and throws it.

~So, Rosie O’Donnell is going to slow down on the blogging a bit. At a certain point, it seemed she was doing nothing but blogging. I wonder how she feels about the opposition that Tropic Thunder is receiving about the mentally handicapped joke. Remember, she did that movie about bus and she played a handicapped person. I found her performance offensive, but not as bad as Another Stakeout.

~ So Laurence Fishburne is joining the CSI team: While I think this good news, I've never been into the show or its spin off shows. I like the Law & Order shows much better. I don't hate the CSI shows, but I don't understand the hype that surrounds them. After K-Fed’s appearance on one of the spin off shows, can we say this series has jumped the shark?

~About that 16-year-old that dropped out of school to be a Guitar Hero pro: Yeah, Blake Peebles' parents have let him drop out. If you're going to let him drop out of school, then how you about you let him actually pick up a real guitar and learn to play that instead.

Blake, you're going to regret this move when you get older. Remember, Gary Coleman? You'll be on the street 'clicking' your guitar buttons for change, but you won't get any because you're not playing music. Guitar Hero, uh, more like Guitar Loser.

I’m not down with our government stepping in on every issue, but they probably need to step in and take this kid away from his parents. Can’t a guy follow his dreams after he finishes High School?

How about I quit my job and become a professional Final Fantasy player?

Yet, even more fun with comments. (Bring it on)

Yet, even more fun with comments.

The saga involving that cheerleader story I did about a year and a half ago is still getting hits. I mean, I still see about 5-10 hits on that damn page. I get hits from all the way over in India. Yet, the post is a year old, I still get comments from people about her and her pictures.

Here are a few amusing ones that have popped up over that year.

This one comes from one of her so-called Roommates

((I don't know where you got your information about becca, but you are incorrect about so much of the story. I was her roommate and if you don't knwo what your talking about, you really should have a blog about it. This story doesn't need to be in the news, this story needs to go away. she is a wonderful girl and doesn;t deserve any of this!))

For a while people were wondering if the whole cheerleader story was real. Many thought it was merely a pornstar posing in those pictures.

By leaving this comment, she pretty much confirmed everything that happened. So, in a way she helped bring more attention to the damn story. Somehow, this roommate decided I was the blame for her friend’s pictures. (Since I go to the same school, I’ve probably passed her or shared a class with this angry woman.)

I didn’t take the picture lady and the story broke 2-months earlier.

Another amusing comment comes from this dude.

((I completely agree that she should not have been forced out of school over this. She was of-age when the photos were taken, and while I'm sure there's some sort of "morality clause" associated with being on a UofL Varsity Squad, I'm also sure that summarily kicking her out of the university over this is actionable.
That being said, if I could send Becca a note (and I've tried through both what I think were her real Facebook and email addresses), I would say that since she's already gotten such a harsh penalty, she might as well use all the publicity for to her advantage, and get some photos up on a pay-per-view site dedicated to herself.
I mean, why not? We've already seen every inch of her body, including some shots with someone else IN her....why not take a couple hundred photos, charge a $20 entry fee (or $50!) and make some money off all the attention.
I'm not pushing my website, but if Becca (or her roommate from above) reads this, I'd love to hear from them to help her set up such a site. Could be done really fast.))

E-mail removed

This guy actually e-mailed her. “Hey, saw you naked, can we talk?” That would seem a little awkward and there is no other way to put it nicely really, especially when you see someone naked. Something tells me she wants to put all this behind her (pun not intended). With a different hair color, she can get back into school and live a normal life.

I really do like this guy. He’s persistent. He is thinking outside the box (pun intended). I just think she wants to be left alone. Though, it is certainly a way to make cash.

Is this guy a porn producer?

And the last comment

If you are her so called roomate Where did she go to high school? Becasue i went to high school with her.

This one goes back to the other comment above that attacked me.

Tropic Thunder Part 2 of 2

As I stated before, Tom Cruise steals the movie with is Joel Silver impression. His makeup and body suit make him almost unrecognizable. Plus, he really knows how to dance to, which he didn’t know how to do earlier this year. At one point, Tom’s character goes into a rant/screaming threat with the ‘bad guys’, and I laughed my butt off in the theater. Tom almost makes me forgive him for all that Scientology shit he’s been pooping out lately. Watching him dance is worth the price of the ticket.

Matthew McConaughey is another guy that surprised me with his role here. He puts aside his ‘dude’ character for a fast-talking agent. He really puts an interesting spin on an otherwise one-dimensional character. There are moments when you see him deciding to make a moral choice that are done completely in his expressions. I loved seeing him playing the Wii every time he’s in his office.

Robert Downey Jr. simply brings his best game as the Russell Crow who turns himself into a black character. In this movie, he’s an actor that can’t get out of character even when another character makes fun of his Australian heritage. There are points when his character almost “breaks the fourth wall” because it is so funny. There is nothing offensive about this character.

I should also mention that the fake trailers at the beginning of the movie are funny as hell. It reminded me of the trailers in the Grindhouse movie. This time, they actually use competing real studio logos in their fake trailers. I couldn’t believe the other studios let them do that. (Alpa Chino’s booty sweat video was freaking great.)

With all this praise, there are a few problems in the movie. Ben Stiller isn’t exactly that good in his role, but still funny in his role. The short running time means that many subplots go unresolved or dropped completely. There are hints of the deleted scenes in the various trailers and ads. Because there are so many characters in this movie, some of them are shortchanged, such as Nick Nolte. Sometimes the jokes are so inside Hollywood that people that don’t know anything about movie trivia won’t get them.

Tropic Thunder is a bloody, politically incorrect movie that is a lot of fun, minus a few drawbacks. (Tyra Banks has no reason to be in this movie.) It is a funny movie that might surprise you.

How does one go from “Back History Month” to Ball? Come on, the writers couldn't have called it something else besides Balls? I'm surprised someone didn't bust out laughing. (I need to use another word other than bust.) Did they all have to be girls too to make it even more creepy?

Five reasons to hate Abercrombie & Fitch

Five reasons to hate Abercrombie & Fitch


On some days, I decide to walk to the mall. In that mall, there is an Abercrombie & Fitch store; actually there are two stores there. One store is simply called Abercrombie. Every time I walk pass the store I get a nose full of cologne and an ear full of techno music.

When I peek inside, I get confused, probably due to the mist of the cologne. And I ask; What kind of people would pay or even visit such a store?

Is it a store for metro-sexual men?

Is it a store for douche bags that think their hip with their expensive shirts and cargo shorts?

Like Starbucks, I have a problem with the way this company markets itself, and I find the logic of their marketing and pricing flawed. Here are a few things I have a problem with inside and outside their stores.

5. Price Tag is too high: For me, I won’t purchase a pair of pants over 15 bucks, and t-shirts under $7. Why the hell would you pay 89 bucks for a pair of pants with pre-worn-out cuts and dirt. I'm not making this up, check it out here. So, you’re going to pay top-dollar for clothes that look like a hobo has worn them since jumping out of a boxcar? If you want to make your jeans look like shit, then do some work in them.

4. Enough with the Pictures of Shirtless men: If I see another ‘male model’ with that goofy expression plastered on their face in a black and white picture, I’m going to punch someone in the face or their $89 pants. Are we supposed to believe that once we get that overly priced stonewashed pair of jeans on, we’ll magically look like the douche bag in the picture? Then again, if I’m paying 100 dollars for a pair of jeans, they had better be magical and traveling too! (Time Traveling Magical Pants)

3. The Mist of cologne and perfume that is pumped through the store: Why does smell like someone detonated an Axe Body Spray bomb in your store? The smell comes seeping out of the doorway and nearly knocks you out. Change it up a bit. How about the smell of hamburgers or better yet linen?

2. Sexual underwear for the wrong demo: That's sick, AF. I'm not even going to type it, just read the criticism of the stores in the wiki page. Shouldn’t there be an age limit as to whom you sell thongs to? Like say 18-35?

1. Techno Music blaring from the store: Can you please play something other than techno? Every time I walk pass, I hear that beat, and I picture Blade entering and kicking vampire ass in that nightclub in the first movie. Does the techno have to come thumping out of the store so loud? How about a nice mixture of music and let’s turn it down a bit?


How about promoting shirts and underwear is also on sale at your store too? Enough with the shirtless guys running through aimlessly through a wheat field. Is the woman naked in this photo?
