Tell us how you really feel, Katt.
I've never been a huge fan of his type of humor, but he is funny in The Boondocks. Williams is having a bad couple of months. I think he went a bit too far with his attack against Mexicans and the heckler. You attack the heckler and not the race or religion of the heckler. You turn the crowd against heckler by making him look like a d-bag.
I think this racist rant will probably hurt him because many Latino people go to his shows.
He also had a breakdown behind the stage of a Young Jeezy concert. Acting like an asshole, he got into a fight. Young Jeezy handled the situation better than I would have.

Actors that announce “they're quitting”

Why does he have that disappointed expression on his mug in all his photos. I am not kidding, check it out.
I wish I could go up to my boss and say, “I don't feel the heart and passion for this job anymore. I think I'm going to quit. I am going to become a rapping finger-painter. ” It seems only rich people can do that.
This reason or basis for the list was because Taylor Momsen announced that she was giving up acting for her music career. I had no idea who she was or why it was important for her to announce it to the public, instead of just switching over to her music career. I guess it worked because I am aware of her now.
Yet, there are a few more actors I'd like to comment about from that list.
Joaquin Phoenix:  I remember writing about JP’s supposed break down when he announced that he was giving up acting for a rapping career.  They were some of my most popular posts too.  It all turned out to be a hoax and a background for a film, which wasn’t very good either.  The film was rather boring.
Freddie Prinze Jr. :  Now this one of kind of a shocker, because I think Hollywood pretty much gave up on him and not the other way around.  He turned to becoming a writer for WWE instead for about a year or so before getting fired from that gig.   I heard he sort of bounced back with 24. 
Uma Thurman:  I’m glad she didn’t follow through with leaving.  She’s a good actress. 
Elizabeth Hurley: She has certainly slowed down in the acting field. From 2004 to 2011, she had done nothing. She's now starring in movies again. I've always liked her.
Sean Connery: Yeah, after screwing over the director of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, he left acting. I believe he locked the director our of editing his own film. He passed up major roles in The Matrix and Lord of the Rings. I remember Lucas tried his best to get Sean back for IJ4. He passed and William Hurt was brought in as replacement.
Jamie Lee Curtis: That didn't stop her from doing those Activia ads. I saw her in You Again.
Amanda Bynes: She gave up acting via Twitter (uh-no), and then had second thoughts when she realized that working at Burger King wasn't that appealing.

My favorite line ever. (("Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any stinkin' badges!"))

This is certainly much better be than the actual real song.

Twilight: Eclipse

Twilight: Eclipse
Eclipse isn’t a bad vampire film.  It is not prefect, but it is certainly light years ahead of the first film, but carries over some of themes from the second film.
Okay, I am shocked about that statement.
Eclipse seems to want to do more than entertain the teenage girls with its shirtless guys and bland writing.  There is an excellent action sequence involving the Cullen Clan and Werewolves fighting an army of young vampires.  This action scene is the true reason to sit through all the pining over the rather dull Kristen Stewart between Jacob and Edward. 
The sequence also shows that both the Cullens and the Werewolves are extremely well trained fighters.  Watching the good vampires work along side the Werewolves was a rare treat indeed.  I also got a kick out of seeing the evil vampire die in a rather break-necking manner.  The director keeps the pacing between the two battles well timed and suspenseful, and it was something missing from the first film and partly there for the second film. 
Kristen Stewart isn’t as bad as she was in the last two films, but that’s not saying much.  She still has this blank stare and dull voice.  Her character still does nothing but stand around while the entire story transpires around her.  She is simply plain and boring.  Her character is still too passive to carry the story along.  This is the central problem with this character.  Everything surrounds Bella, but she is useless to the story progression.   
Director David Slade does what he can with the weak script.  Slade almost makes the relationship between Edward and Jacob interesting.  The death scenes are pretty brutal, especially one involving the Volturi dealing with a vampire.
Eclipse isn’t a good vampire movie or a good movie period.  However, it is the most entertaining out of the series so far.  The direction is much better than last two films, but the writing and dialogue is still terrible.  Just watch it for the somewhat intense action in the third act. 
Grade: C

Hello, Power Girl!

Hello, Power Girl!

From the cover of Power Girl 27.
Heck, I'd fall into a well or throw myself into a river just to get rescued by her. My luck would be that Aquaman would save me instead. “Thanks, Aquaman, but I was waiting for Power Girl instead. Can you throw me back in.”
Anyone that's read my blog long enough is fully aware that I love Power Girl. It's because artists usually draw her a bit curvier than most superhero women. And, you have to have a certain shape to even cosplay her.
Some artists draw her younger while others draw her older. And, some people go overboard. Here's a joke drawing.

Give her a blond wig, Gianna Michaels could pull off a Powergirl look.  
She has the body shape.  I can see it.  

Jessi Slaughter Today...

Jessi Slaughter Today...
I heard about the follow up story on the podcast Get Up On This.
Jessi looks healthier and seems a little more stable. It appears she is in foster care and doing well. This all lead to an incident where her father beat her up badly and the police arrested him. Seeing the family situation she came from, it is no wonder she acted out the way she did.
She seems like a different person.
The kicker to the story is that her jailed father died from heart attack a few days after she posted the video from above. You have to wonder if his heart gave out due to guilt.

British Guys?
“How much is a Vent Sever Chris?”
Recorded, Augh
I think I've been in one Vent Sever playing it over at my friends house. I'm sure I'd make a good sound clips.

Midnight Star: Anyone remember this group?

Midnight Star: Anyone remember this group?
freakazoids...robots..please report
freakazoids...robots...please report to the dance floor
I remember my mother telling this group was from Louisville. That's not 100% true. They actually formed the band on the campus of Kentucky State University, a historic black university in Frankfort KY. I actually remember having one of their albums.
Most of their songs were dance songs with electronic beats and sound effects. I can see the wave of electronic music from the 90s being influenced by their songs. Check out some of their hits below.

GameStop: Removes Free Codes from your product

GameStop: Removes Free Codes from your product
GameSpot was caught removing free codes from Deus Ex: Human Revolution.  In a leaked memo, they ordered their employees to open the copies and remove the code from the packages. 
It seems a little bit of a low-blow on their part and underhanded against Square Enix. 
When the Intertubes blow up the story, GameStop had this to say about the incident.  From Kotaku, ((Regarding the Deus Ex: Human Revolution OnLive Codes: We don't make a habit of promoting competitive services without a formal partnership. Square Enix packed the competitor's coupon with our DXHR product without our prior knowledge and we did pull these coupons. While the new products may be opened, we fully guarantee the condition of the discs to be new. If you find this to not be the case, please contact the store where the game was purchased and they will further assis))
Okay, they are competitors, but does that give you the right to remove anything from the box?
Well, Square Enix is okay with this underhanded action. (("As part of Deus Ex: Human Revolution's boxed offering on PC, Square Enix included a third party coupon", says a statement released by the publisher. "GameStop was not made aware of this inclusion and Square Enix respects the right of GameStop to have final say over the contents of products it sells and to adjust them where they see fit in accordance with their policies." ))
Something tells me SE doesn't want to piss off the only real US game retailer in the US.
Forget GS, I would probably buy it at Wal-Mart or online instead.  

Nu Shooz “I Can’t Wait”

Nu Shooz  “I Can’t Wait”
Yeah, I still sing this song randomly.  This is my jam.  I love the smooth, laid back beat and baseline.  Some people call this a disco track, but I have to disagree.  It doesn’t have the speed of many disco tracks. 
The song is by the group Nu Shooz.  (Clever name) They had a few hits in the 80s. You can check out what that look like today via this link. Check out the last picture.

Random Things

Random Things
~Well, that super-nerd is back in the café talking loudly about politics and sounding nerd-ier than ever.  This time he’s being super annoying.  I really hate this egghead.  Forever alone…
~Kim Kardashian and her big fat wedding: MC brought up a good point about the wedding.  It seems she racked up some major cash from her overblown wedding.  Now, word has gotten out that the groom’s side of the family is pretty “appalled” by the TV show feel of the wedding.  What did they expect from a family that has made a living doing nothing but reality shows.  I wonder how long the marriage is going to last? 
~Jada and Will Smith’s marriage on the rocks?:  When will Xenu step in and save their marriage?  By the way, Jada, how’s that singing career?  Why exactly is their marriage in trouble? 
~All Around the World the Same Song:  This is probably the only thing I really remember about the movie Nothing But Trouble, until watching it recently.  This was also 2 Pac’s first movie role.  I am not sure what Director/Writer Dan Aykroyd was smoking when he created this movie.  It is such a strange movie.  However, I have to admit I kind of like it.  But, what is wrong with the mutant babies?  Bobo and Li'l Debil?  

~Gerard Depardieu certainly has changed over the years.  He’s morphed into a 40-year-old woman?  How did that happen?  Plus, he likes peeing on airplanes too.

Muammar Gaddafi, it is time to go

Muammar Gaddafi, it is time to go
The wagons are circling the base, and it is time to cut and run.  It is time to pack up all the jerry curl activator and the MJ suits and pimp canes. 
Side Note:  Did I mention that Gaddafi has a group of attractive female bodyguards?  I’m not making this up.  I guess he’s been watching Kill Bill too many times. 

Lindsay Lohan Vs. Pitbull: She is suing Pitbull over one line of lyrics

Lindsay Lohan Vs. Pitbull:  She is suing Pitbull over one line of lyrics

Because she is unemployable, Lindsay decided to make some extra cash by suing Pitbull over some lyrics. Geez, she is almost as bad with legal threats as the Scientology folks.
So, what are the offending lyrics? 
((Hustlers move aside, so I'm tiptoein', to keep flowin' I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.))
Yep, pretty harmless right? 
From TMZ, ((Lindsay is pissed, claiming in her lawsuit ... "the lyrics, by virtue of its wide appeal, condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendantsabout the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff."))
How can it be defamatory when Lindsay actually ended up in jail? Or is this a way to grab more money in the same way as she did with the E-Trade folks?
Lindsay, as a representative of humanity, I want to tell you to pack up your chips and go away for a while.
Did I mention that even directors are coming out and saying they don't want to work with her? Steven Soderbergh had this to say about Lindsay. (( "He didn't want to deal with all that.Nobody wanted to go there." ))

Freakazoid Retrospective videos

Freakazoid Retrospective videos
This retrospective film is very good.  I can’t remember the last time I laughed out loud at a cartoon show. 
-Bruce Timm and Paul Dini (Batman and Superman TAS team) had something to do with the development of the show.  The show was supposed to be a
-Breaking the Fourth Wall:  Each episode would have tons of breaking of the fourth wall jokes. 
-Longhorn seems to be a parody of Johnny Cash.  He’s a country singer…or at least he wants to be.  Plus, the voice actor seems to be channeling Cash.  
  -Yes, the Candle Jack episode is probably the best episode in the show’s run.  But, there is no Candle Jack.
Candle Jack:  “Hello, Semaj.”
“Oh, nuts.”

Okay, this is a bit awkward…Data stares at you

Okay, this is a bit awkward…Data stares at you
I guess putting up with sweaty trekkies is one thing, but Brent Spiner being filmed pisses him off.
Quickly, where is his off switch?

Andy Levy Apologizes To Chris Brown...sort of..kind of...

Andy Levy is great
That was brilliant. 
Yes, people seem to forget that Chris Brown not only beat up Rihanna, but left her in the car beaten and broken.  I am shocked that he still has fans, let alone ones that defend him.  Andy Levy thought so too and a Twitter War erupted. 
While I am not a huge fan of Twitter, this "war" is one of the better ones.  
Chris Brown created a random tweet about Planking.
Levy switched up Brown’s tweet with this note. 
 That was pretty clever and bold.  Sure, it was tasteless, but people have to remember what he did.  Brown seems to have created this world where he has completely ignored that assault.  You can't gloss over domestic abuse without seeking treatment.  
How about that “outburst” on Good Morning America?

The D-Bags Vs. The D-Bag Clothing Chain: Abercrombie & Fitch vs. Pauly D and The Situation

We're D-Bags!!!
The D-Bags Vs. The D-Bag Clothing Chain: Abercrombie & Fitch vs. Pauly D and The Situation
Abercrombie, the stores with the annoying techno music and rude employees, has a “beef” with The Situation. They don't want him to wear their clothes anymore (evermore). From ET Online, (("We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino's association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image," the retailer said in a statement. "We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans," the statement added.  ))
I hate Jersey Shore and I really hate The Situation, but I smell a set up from Abercrombie. It just feels like someone in PR thought it would get them more attention if they went after lowest hanging fruit...The Situation. (Update: it was a stunt)
Now, A&F's stock dropped after the “incident”. Look, getting anywhere near the Jersey Shore cast will destroy your career and even lower your stocks, so stay away from them.
I have no idea who to cheer for, because we all lose in the battle. I want both of them to go away.
