The Submarine Theme from Medal of Honor in Lost (revisited)

The Submarine Theme from Medal of Honor in Lost
Whenever there is a mention or scene with the Submarine in the later seasons of Lost, Michael Giacchino would bring back his U-Boat theme he made famous in the Medal of Honor series. I remember hearing the theme the first time in the episode where Locke blows up the sub.
Here are a few other Lost themes I'd like share

Simon Sez (remember this one?)

Simon Sez (remember this one?)
Oh, man. Back in the day, some of my co-workers and I would talk about this movie. We would bring up an early version of Dane Cook before he became the horny-guy comedian with sold out shows. The movie came out after the movie Double Team with Jean-Claude Van Damme. He basically plays the same damn character in this movie, but with a different name. I have no idea why they didn't just make him the same character, because they even brought back the cyber monks from Double Team.
Simon Sez came out right around the height of Dennis (The Worm) Rodman's popularity. Rodman dated Maddonna and had a TV show on MTV. He showed up in a few movies and TV shows too. At this point, I was sick of Rodman and throwing an unfunny Dane Cook in there didn't help matters.
If I am not mistaken, the original title for Die Hard III was “Simon Says”, which was from an unrelated script to the Die Hard universe. And, you know it is “extreme” when you throw a “Z” on something.
There are so many silly moments in this movie that, I just tell people to watch it just for poops and giggles. Don't take my word for it, read the book...uh watch the movie.
And, F' You, Dane Cook.

How to be a Gentleman

How to be a Gentleman
Wow, that certainly looked bad. It looked like a cross between 2 and Half Men and every other sitcom from UPN from the 90s. Look the concept of men being men is something close to my heart, like the stupid “murses”, but this concept shoved into here just looks bad.
So, Kevin Dillon is basically playing another Johnny Drama type. Actually, this is the type of role Drama would play in the show within the show on Entourage. So, Mary Lynn Rajskub is in it too. Truth be told, I am not that shocked she's on the show, because she's a comedic person first, but was known for her somewhat serious role on 24.
Naturally, the reviews are bad.
As I said before, this show feels like a UPN and WB show. However, I'll give it chance with one episode.   

Batman Year One: Animated movie trailer

Batman Year One: Animated movie
Well, Frank Miller has done some amazing stories early in his career and some aspects of “Year One” are very cool. However, having Catwoman be a hooker is a bit too extreme. I've never seen Catwoman as that type of character. And, that goes back to Miller having major issues with women in his stories. They're always over-sexual and evil. Heck, his original Robocop II story proves that point.
Anyway, before it turns into a Miller rant...
 Yet, there is some cool stuff from “Year One”, and they used some of those moments in Batman Begins. It is good to see Bruce Timm takes a stab at making an animated version of the story.

What happened to Chris Trucker?

What happened to Chris Trucker?
I really do mean that. I know that somewhere between Friday and Rush Hour 2, he stopped smoking weed and took up religion. Taking away appearances in The Meteor Man and House Party 3, he had some pretty good roles in Friday, Dead Presidents, Money Talks, and Jackie Brown. His role in the first Rush Hour was pretty good too. He blew up with RH and Money Talks.
It was around Rush Hour 2 when he pretty much disappeared from the movie scene. From 2001 to 2007 he did nothing other than appearing in his friend's music video (Michael Jackson) “You Rock My World”. He came back for the boring RH3, and that was when they paid him 20 million for showing up and sleepwalking through the movie. I mean he looked like he was uninterested in being in RH3.
From that point on, he just disappeared again. IMDB does list him as being rumored to show up in The Silver Linings Playbook in 2013. IMDB is listing it as a comedy with De Niro and Bradley Cooper.
So, what happened to him?
They seem so thrilled...

The Rhythm is going to get you (Gloria Estefan)

The Rhythm is going to get you
I still randomly sing this even today.
I also go up to my friends and say, “Do you know the rhythm is going to get you?”
“When is the rhythm going to get me?”
“Tonight,” I answer. I usually point at them with two fingers.
Hey, "Get on your feet."
Side Note: This song is sampled in a Bollywood song/movie. The ethic chants are reused. The song is named Oye Oye

Mr. T’s Oven and I’m not talking about his farts…

Mr. T’s Oven and I’m not talking about his farts…

“That’s Disgusting”
I like that Mr. T can barely knock down the door. 

About those SJ Pictures...

About those Scarlett Johansson pictures...(Clearly not safe for work)
While I make it a policy to not have nude pictures on my blog, I do support them on other bloggers' sites. A fellow blogger posted the infamous leaked pictures of the very lovely Johansson.
Whoever is dating her is a lucky man.  Can you imagine waking up beside that amazing body every morning?
I understand the jabber about “personal privacy”, but in a world where everything gets hacked and I mean everything, you can’t post nude pictures of yourself and think they won’t get leaked. If you don't want nude pictures getting out then stop taking them. If you're an attractive woman with nude photos, they're going to get out.
Why does this blog post sound familiar?
Oh, yeah. Never mind...

The Star Wars Kid: Kids’ reaction to it…(and a look back)

The Star Wars Kid:  Kids’ reaction to it…(and a look back) 
Ah, yes the Star Wars Kid. It is one of those early memes that keeps on giving. The meme started in 2002 way before I even started blogging. Yet, I remember the meme being new around 2005 when I started my blog. I guess memes didn't burn out as quickly as they do now.
“This is kind of sad” one kid says. 
One kid mentions Chris Farley’s opus, or un-opus, Beverly Hills Ninja.  And, I can see the SW Kid in that Farley vibe. 
About the Star Wars Kid…
Truth be told, I’d probably do the same thing, but without the camera.  The SW Kid became a famous Internet guy thanks to some fellow students.  I would have sided with this kid if it weren’t for his family trying to make a quick buck by suing the students that released the video. 
After becoming a Meme, Ghyslain (SW Kid) surfaced as student in law school at McGill University and being the president of the Patrimoine Trois-Rivières society. I personally think he had a chance at becoming a Jedi and training at the Jedi Academy. So, big ups for getting his life together, but I still don't like the part where his parents sued.
Somewhere, he will be representing a client and they’ll recognize him.  “You’re that Jedi Kid, right?”
“That is why you failed.”

Luckiest guy at the moment? (Christina Hendricks)

Luckiest guy at the moment?
It is certainly the guy that took the curvy and lovely Christina Hendricks on a date at the Emmy Awards. She is practically bursting out of that a good way.
Plus, she gets extra points for the Make-Wish thing. From Daily Gossip, ((And now back to Christina Hendricks and her teen date. David, 17, is one of the children who got lucky. He wrote to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and said that his greatest dream is to attend the Emmy Awards Ceremony with the actress. And he got his wish. ))

Michelle Rodriguez returns for Resident Evil 5 (wait, what?)

I kind of gave up on the series around the third movie. I liked the first movie and enjoyed the second movie, but I didn't care much for RE3. And, I didn't bother watching RE4, which was very successful. But, I am aware that Rodriguez's character died in the first movie. (Actually, Michelle has made career of having her characters killed off in everything.) Hell, her character in RE died twice.
What's next MR returning for Avatar II. And, we are fully aware that her character from Fast and Furious series was discovered to be alive at the end of the last Furious film. So, they're going to have explain that one first before RE5
Filmonic has news of Michelle Rodriguez returning for RE5. Probably the best casting in the series has to be Sienna Guillory as Jill Valentine. But, the rest of the casting seemed a bit off to me.
While it is interesting to see the movie series set in a completely different universe from the games, I thought the first movie could have easily been placed into videogame universe. But, RE2 goes off into a different direction.  
I could make a "Before she hits the makeup chair" joke, but I won't because I think Michelle is attractive in a tomboy type of way...

Bristol Palin vs. Jerk?

Bristol Palin vs. Jerk?

A girl rides a bull...and then the BS happens.
From ABC News, ((Bristol, 20, was riding a mechanical bull at the Saddle Ranch bar and restaurant Thursday night when a heckler yelled out, “Did you ride Levi like that?,” referring to Levi Johnston, the father of Bristol’s young son. The man went on to call her mother, the former Alaska governor, a “whore.” ))
Okay, the first part with the Levi joke was funny, but calling Sarah Palin a whore was bit too far. Calling a her a bag of stupid rocks is fine.
It is around the 1:58 mark when things turn ugly (uglier). All parties involved in this story are wrong. For one, calling Sarah Palin out like that is a cheap shot, and only strengthens those against your cause. Palin should have walked away and not made a scene. Then, there's the whole gay attack that is almost as a low blow as calling her mother a whore/devil.
I guess there was a hint of that story of Sarah Palin banging a NBA player. Bristol mentioed, jokingly, that she was half-African American.
From ABC News, ((Their back and forth ended when the heckler said, “You don’t look anything like Glen Rice, I thought you would,” referring to the allegations that Sarah Palin had a one night stand with the former NBA player. ))
I guess that Lisa Ann movie has more truth to it than we thought...

Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry...mmm nice

Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry...mmm nice
Yes, there is a uncanny resemblance between the two cute ladies. Perry is a bit more naturally busty. Zooey is annoyed that people make a comparison between the two.
From MTV, (("It's a little bit annoying, to be totally blunt. The only similarity that we have is that we look a little bit alike," she laughed. "I have met her before. She seems like a nice person. I'm happy that she's famous enough now that she's not going out and being mistaken for me." ))
Wow, tell us how you really feel, Zooey. It feels like there is a bit of anger behind those words.
From MTV. (("I used to get, 'I heard you were out at such-and-such club drinking whiskey!' [when] I was at home watching TV," Deschanel said. "I think we lead very different lives. At some point I feel like this will stop being a thing. I like the way my life goes. It's sort of strange to be associated with someone that's doing such different stuff than me. It's weird." ))
I guess it is better to be confused with Perry instead of Lindsay Lohan.

White Girls at the Club (Jenna Marbles) (Da Clubs)

White Girls at the Club (Jenna Marbles)
I love Jenna Marbles and this video tells the truth. I remember being at a party and seeing a girl asleep on top of a toilet.    

The People Vs. George Lucas

Interesting Discussion of about The People Vs. George Lucas
I've always felt the uproar for the changing of the Star Wars movies is a little foolhardy, because he's been changing the Star Wars films in the 70s.
-I agree that GL had no business directing the prequels. He should have let another group of directors direct his films.
-I also think he harmed the Indiana Jones 4 film.
-Howard the Duck bomb? Brilliant.

Murses: Man Purses (kill it with fire?)

Murses: Man Purses
From the urban dictionary, Murse: ((a man-purse. very fashion-forward right now, seen on many hipster guys. the line between a messenger bag and murse is very fluid - typically a murse is a bit smaller than a traditional messenger, and may have a slightly more stylized look to it. a murse can also be used to carry a laptop computer - one of the reasons it is so popular right now.))
In a world where men are now wearing skinny jeans and buggy-eyed glasses, I guess the man purse isn’t that far from off the beaten path.  I’m starting to see more and more guys with the male purses walking around as if there is nothing wrong with it.  I find the notion of designer male purses to be disturbing to say the least. 
Remember that annoying nerd dude that I’ve talked about over the months at school?  Well, he carries around a murse and a very feminine one too.  I nearly laugh because he carries like a purse, which is just wrong. 
Look, I am all for having something to carry around all your stupid smart phones, I-Pads and laptops, but can we at least carry it something that doesn’t look like it carries makeup and perfume? 
Back in the day, it was perceived that holding your wife’s purse was considered un-manly.  Now, men can’t wait to get their own murses.  What is the world coming to?
And, yes I know that even the badass Indiana Jones had one, but it looked cool because it didn’t have those flowery designs on them.  There is a big difference.  Your shoulder bag should look like it is carrying those stones from Temple of Doom and not your wife’s makeup kit.  Besides, Jones is wearing a satchel, damn it.
 I think the fanny pack morphed into the murse. 
For me, I go with the manly backpack.  You will probably see me with that on than anything else.  I’m not totally against murses, just the ones that look extremely feminine.  We can’t let this thing go no further like the skinny jeans.  Can I get a witness?   
 Even the hip-hop people are fine with it.  WTF?  
 It almost seems fitting for him.
Oh, no.  Iron Man has a murse!  Next you're going to tell me Bruce Wayne will have one.  Please no.

Random Things

Random Things
~Matthew Fox won't be charged with fighting with a bus driver. If you remember, Fox was drunk and tried to force his way onto a Party Bus. That was when the rather large bus driver told him he wasn't alllowed. That was when Fox began to punch the lady in her breasts. She returned the favor with a hard punch in the face of the Lost star. Something tells me he thought she was the smoke monster. Heather Bormann, who was the “party” bus driver, is suing Fox for 25K, so he isn't out of the woods yet. Something tells me he'll be giving her the money.
~France bans public prayer: I am not a religious person at all, but banning public prayer seems a bit wrong to me. Just like that ban on Burqas in France. I don't mind people praying or expressing their beliefs, just don't force it onto to me. If a person wants to pray, by all means do so.
~New Girl: Zooey Deschanel is cute, but I am not sure about this show. This is show sounds like something you would parody on those Grand Theft Auto radio channels. “A hot girl that can't find a man, moves in with three attractive guys and hilarity ensures.” Plus, it is doomed because it is on FOX.
Oh, it is sooo believable that this woman can't get it together to get a date.  Homegirl, please.  
~NBA Lockout: I hadn't noticed. I thought the NBA was always in a lockout of some form. I do know that David Stern has a melting face.   I guess David shouldn't have opened the Lost Ark.  

Back to the Future A Capella

Back to the Future A Capella
That is brilliant.  He even does the voices. 
His name is Matt Mulholland and he does other songs and tracks to movies.  More stuff after the jump

Dancing with the Stars (?)

Dancing with the Stars (?)
 I've never fully seen a single episode of the show and probably never see one either. However, it fasteinates me that the network can even call it “dancing with the stars”. And, for this season we got the firecracker topic of transgendered Chaz Bono whether we want to or not.
Since the “exciting” premiere happens tonight, I thought I'd run down the “stars” on the show this season.
David Arquette:  First, he did that awful Hulk Hogan reality show that failed.  Now, he’s in this show.  Man, his career has fallen on hard times. 
Chaz Bono:  I have no problem with a transgender person on the show, but I am not sure I could call him a “star”.  I think the studio/network was looking for some controversial buzz from the fly-over states and they thought Bono would be the prefect recipe.  It is the same formula they used with Sarah Palin’s daughter…who wasn’t a star either.
Elisabetta Canalis:  Model:  I had no idea who she was, but I Googled her.  And, she doesn’t mind taking off her clothes…at all.  She is rather attractive and doesn’t have the skinny conventional model body. (not really safe for work)  
Kristin Cavallari:  A “The Hills” reject comes to forefront.  I know nothing about her other than she looks rather dull and plain. 
Nancy Grace:  I feel bad for her dancing partner.  You better believe he’s seen some meltdowns and diva behavior from her.  Please throw in a Casey Anthony appearance. 
Rob Kardashian:  They come in male forms too I guess…
Carson Kressley:  Don’t know and don’t care who this person is. 
Ricki Lake:  The 90s called and it wants its Ricki Lake back.  While I hated her show, I have to say that Lake looks pretty much the same as she did back in her Talk Show days.  She looks good.  I am not sure I’d call her “on the cutting edge” though. 
J.R. Martinez:  No idea who this is. 
Ron Artest:  Uh, some NBA star right? 
Chynna Phillips:  She’s not the fat one from Wilson Phillips right?  Oh, and she is also doing a reality show around her former band mates coming together. 
 Hope Solo:  Does she get the keys to the Millennium Falcon?  

The Lion King re-release is a hit!

Like the Star Wars re-releases, this movie was a huge hit over the weekend.  It topped the Box Office with nearly 30 million dollars.  That is an amazing feat with a 1994 movie.  I think part of the reason for the huge success has to do with the 3D aspect.  I think people really wanted to see the movie in 3D because it truly feels like a 3D movie.  
 I really need to check it out before it leaves theaters. 
Is the “morning report” song included in the release version, like when it was added into the DVD version of the film?  The morning report song came from the Lion King Stage show.  And, yea, I’ve seen the stage show.

Premium Rush Trailer

Premium Rush Trailer
Okay, this feels and looks like a Tony Scott film from this era of his filmmaking.   However, it is directed by David Koepp
Okay, somehow this trailer make riding a bicycle look cool.  I ride a bicycle and I’ve never looked this cool.  And, I’ve done a lot of city riding lately, and I never looked this cool. 
Dania Ramirez looks very good.  Then again, I’ve always had a huge crush on this girl since Fat Albert. 
Michael Shannon, aka the crocked cop, looks to be playing almost the same character he plays on Boardwalk Empire. 
Anyway, it looks pretty good, and I’ve always enjoyed a chase movie. 
There is some controversy behind the movie though.  A novelist by the name of Joe Quirk is claiming that his book “Ultimate Rush” was ripped off in the film Premium Rush.  In his book, it is a rollerblade messenger.  He might have a case. 

Is this what failure looks like? (balloons failed)

Is this what failure looks like?  (balloons failed)
All that work for nothing…and that damn evil tree.  
Where is the balloon boy when you need him?
