Roger Rabbit Stuff

Roger Rabbit Stuff
-I knew about the deal between WB and Disney. They had to share equal amount of time on screen between the two studios' characters. The other characters outside this deal didn't though like Popeye and Betty Boop.  You will probably never see these two studios work together like this again.  
-So the voice of Bart Simpson is in the movie.  She probably threw away that money to a certain space church then.  
-The deleted Pig Head scene: I've talked about this scene in a very popular post back in the day.
-So they animated certain portions of human people in quick paced scenes. Very strange, but something I didn't know about the film.

My favorite hidden thing is the “cow pie” in the street when Eddie first goes through Toon Town. The “cow pie” is actually a pie with a cow's face on it and it also sings the song. Eddie actually runs over the cow pie, thus killing it!

The Way Way Back

The Way Way Back
I saw the trailer for this film and thought it looked good.  I just never got around to it until it showed up On Demand from one of the paid cable channels.  Despite a few “setting” problems, the movie totally works as character piece.  It is not so much interested in plot but moving a few characters forward.  I loved this movie…maybe because it seems to mirror my life. 
The lead character Duncan finds himself going to a vacation home for summer break with a new family structure. He will have a new stepfather in the form of Steve Carell. Carell's character is a complete utter jerk to Duncan, but it does get this character to kick-start his life and open up. By doing so, he's able to take chances and open up to people at his new summer job.
Liam James as Duncan is the perfect kid to play this unhappy child from a divorced family.  Duncan simply wants to be left alone and be unhappy.  He starts to open up once he begins to visit this water park, which he starts to work there as a summer job. 
-The chemistry between Sam Rockwell and Liam is just great to watch.
-Toni Collette : She plays the very concerned mother of Duncan. It is almost she is aware of every mother that has had an awkward child that is depressed and a loner. She has these looks where she sees her son becoming more distant from her.
-Allison Janney : She plays the “speak her mind” neighbor. She's really good in the part.
-Sam Rockwell : He's just brilliant as the easygoing boss of the water park and he becomes Duncan's father figure as well as his best friends.
The biggest flaw of the movie is that it was clearly written for a 80s time period.  There are tons of hints of this throughout.  And, I actually thought the movie was set in 80s until Duncan is seen wearing ear-buds and listening to an I-phone.  Everything else just feels like a 80s setting.  Clearly someone wanted to make sure it set in modern times
This movie might not be for everyone.  For people that grew up as outsiders, they will love this movie. Jim Rash did an outstanding with the script and his small part in the movie.  It’s a nice little movie with a lot of heart for us outsiders that grew up in a difficult time.  Are there a lot of similarities to Adventureland?  Yep, but I actually like this one better than the earlier movie. 
Grade B+

Uh, I need a horse fast...

Uh, I need a horse fast...
From Huffington Post, ((An Arizona woman has been arrested on bestiality charges after allegedly trying to arrange sex with a horse via Craigslist. ))
Who knew just looking for a horse to F' will get you arrested? I'll keep that in mind...if I ever lose my mind. How does one wine and dine a horse? Do you set up some sugar cubes and a TV in the background?

All kidding aside, yes it is disgusting to bang a horse, but did we need this sting conducted on a girl that wanted to pay for a “good time” with a horse? Aren't there other more pressing crimes to deal with than this? Oh, did I mention that the cops brought a horse from their own stable to pose as a hooker horse? So, the cop horse was playing undercover horse.    
This whole story is nuts.  
Horses don't use the Internet.  You don't need to post selfies for the horse.

~Trying to keep the stress down: I've on edge a bit with certain things popping up and some major family issues. Certain things I can't change, because people refuse to change them. But, there are some minor things here and there are also getting me upset and I really shouldn't get that worked up about them. As far as the family thing, that family member has chosen drinking and drugs over everything else and we need to distance ourselves from him.

~Justice League will follow Batman vs Superman: This is why Marvel is kicking your ass creatively, DC. Again, WB is doing this whole universe building thing ass-backwards. The first thing they need to do is incorporate the Green Arrow TV series into the same universe. They really should have incorporated the Dark Knight series into the universe and gotten The New Batman at the end of the series to be the Batman. Set the Wonder Woman character in a one off movie before setting up Justice League. Perhaps they should have followed their own animated model of universe-building. And, why have Zack Snyder direct everything? Why not bring in another talented director to give it a different feel from the Superman movies? Stupid-stupid-stupid. And, unlike Marvel, DC has the rights to all of their heroes to use in movies.
~Old School Star Wars actors in London: There is word that the Big Three from the series are being spotted around London. So, that means they're gearing up to film their SW scenes. I am really looking forward to this movie. Here's hoping they use less green screen background than the prequels.
All I can think of is "Joker Here"

~Bioshock Universe: I really need to get to writing a post about the Bioshock universe as whole after the reveal in the last DLC and how it relates to the entire universe.

Knight Rider Theme: One of the best TV Themes ever (repost/reblog)

Knight Rider Theme: One of the best TV Themes ever
MC and I talked about how old TV shows really went out of their ways to give us kickass themes for their opening shows. This is a reproduction of the main them from Knight Rider. The DJ dude did a really good job recreating the sound of the old theme.
I fondly remember rushing downstairs to listen to the opening theme. By the way, I love the bass line.  The theme is clearly 80s just like the third season Transformers theme.  
Other people found this theme so kick ass that at least three mainstream rappers have used the theme in their songs.  I like them all and they work in a retro sort of way.

They didn't teach that in school...

Didn't know lap dances were a part of the teaching process...
I don't remember this happening when I went to middle school. All I would receive from teachers is a yell and lower grade. Back in the day, I couldn't even get a girl my age to even talk to me let alone what this kid had happen to him. Saw this over at Tommy's site and said “What in the hell?”
From ABC, ((A middle school teacher is facing a felony charge, after she allegedly gave a student a lap dance for his birthday. ))
And, you think that's bad. She is 42 years old and preformed the lap dance on the 15 year front of the rest of the class! Given that there are cameras everywhere and in everything, why would she think this wouldn't be leaked out?
Why would she even think this shit would be a good idea to begin with? I am at a total loss for words.

By the way, she's claiming the she was pressured into doing it by the students. Uh, does that mean I could have pressured my teachers into give me A+s? 
Why does this come to mind when I read this story?

Avril Lavigne: Hello Kitty

Avril Lavigne: Hello Kitty
It is as if she wrapped Katy Perry and Keshia into one annoying music video. You're trying too hard. This song has everything that is wrong with pop music today. Throw in autotune and shitty dubstep. Now, we just follow trends in order to make music. 
Lavigne isn't the peak of great music, but at least it didn't sound like the crap today. Now, she's just joined the rest of them and thrown in disjointed music in with yelling.
-Racist? : Not at all. It is just a long line of Pop Stars using Japanese culture in their music videos. There's nothing racist about this video really. It just comes across as annoying and unoriginal. Are we going to have a Cancel Lavigne hashtag battle soon? Oh, crap.
-Candy motif: Uh, didn't Katy already do this?
-Skin Diamond haircut: Why are women shaving half their hair off? How is this sexy? It looks like you've been fighting a samurai.   

Nintendo card code stolen within minutes if not seconds...real smooth.

Why in the heck would you post your download code online?

Found this on Know Your Meme. I sometimes love naive people, but you just gave up 50 bucks to some asses on the Internet. People were probably racing to use it...even if this is Nintendo and no one really uses Nintendo. Another thing ruined by Twitter. Stop Tweeting every single thing. People, we don't need to see each dish you're going to consume unless you post the after effects of you shitting it out too. (

I tried doing a search on this guy, but came up empty handed. I guess he deleted his account.

Mugshots are fun and funny

Well, at least she's smiling in this picture? 
I like mugshots. They pretty much show you at your worst point in your life. I also like famous people's mugshots. They're like Pokemon, you got to catch them all. Someone posted a comment in a random post about Cody Lane's mugshot and I remembered she had two sets of them.
For my end, I've tried to find my family member's mugshot because he's been arrested multiple times. But there is no record of his arrest from what I can find. And, I know someday I will have my own set of mugshot photos too. 
It should also be worth noting that pornstars and mugshots seem to get along fairly well. 

Yasukuni Shrine: Bieber is a clueless dick

Bieber just can't catch a break. 
 Even the dude can't believe this little ass is taking a picture.
Remember when there wasn't a Twitter to make a famous person look very terrible?
After causing havoc in his hometown Wal-Mart, the Bieber pretty much pissed off most of Asia when he visited a Japanese War Shrine. Being that he's been home schooled, he wasn't aware that there is some serious bad mojo between Japan and the rest of Asia about the Yasukuni Shrine. Bieber posted the twitter picture as if it was “just a place of for prayer”. Sorry, Bieber it's not, It is a reminder to many people outside of Japan of the horrible things that the Army did to most of Asia.
From, ((It is a flashpoint between Japan and its neighbors that see the shrine as distinct from other Shinto-style establishments mainly honoring gods of nature. China and South Korea in particular see Yasukuni as a symbol of Japan's past militarism and consider Japanese officials' visits there as a lack of understanding or remorse over wartime history. ))
I know he lives in a bubble, but someone in his group should have had some passing knowledge of World War II before visiting the shrine right? Someone should have whispered into his ear and said, “We shouldn't be here.” You do realize Japan was on the other side of the war? Or does that fact not interest him?
The douche bag did apologize in a strange manner. From Chicago Tribune, (("To anyone I have offended I am extremely sorry," he wrote on his Instagram site. "I love you China and I love you Japan." ))
Uh, you offended everyone in Asia, asshole.
Now, any concert he does outside of Japan might have some serious problems. As I wrote before, this has more to do with a lack of knowledge and education on Bieber's part than “honoring” WWII vets from Japan. All he had to do was look up information on the shrine and know that it isn't a place to visit.
I'm ready for this prick's career to end. Like a bad case of herpes, he keeps turning up. (Not that I have herpes mind you.)
 Just stop with the Twitter bullshit, everyone.

Random Things

Random Things 
  ~Mrs. Doubtfire II: Really, Hollywood? I just not seeing too many people asking for a Doubtfire sequel or even a reboot or remake. I am still confused as to why people thought a Robocop cop reboot/remake was necessary. Mara Wilson, a person that's had some Internet fame recently, tweeted out some remarks about the notion of a sequel. I'm guessing she won't be asked back for the followup. I am with Mara that the movie ended where it needed to end. Comedies generally don't have too many good sequels. (Naked Gun 2 was pretty good).  Think about a Tommy Boy II.  It wouldn't work...actually they made Black Sheep that was but wasn't a sequel to TB.  And that wasn't as funny.  It was funny, but not laugh out loud funny like TB. 

  ~Prince is back with WB Records: I guess things change after 20 years. This was the feud with Prince writing slave on himself in order to get out of a contract with WB. I guess the entire music industry is suffering and old feuds are being patched up. I won't have signed Prince again if I were WB because he's very sue happy. They might find themselves in lawsuit. 
  ~Aaron Sorkin Apologizes for Newsroom to Journalists. The problem really isn't the way he portrays the news guys but the almost low opinion he has from the Internet Media that seems to overflow his scripts. He has a idealistic view of things and that's the way he writes his universes. I happen to like the second season a lot more than the first. There are less speeches and more drama in the second season.

Darwyn Cooke's Batman Beyond

 Darwyn Cooke's Batman Beyond
This just goes to show you that DC animated shows are still better than the DC live action series. They seem to really understand the power of DC's universe. I love that they got Kevin Conroy and Will Friedle back to reprise their roles. This sweet short is a tribute to the 75th anniversary of Batman.
I also love they brought back the HARDAC androids as the bad guys. I'd always hoped they would bring them back for Justice League.

There are Tim Burton, Dark Knight Returns, Brave and the Bold robot Batmen in the bunch. Plus, the original version of Batman from the first comic book.   (Yeah, there is an Adam West version too, but I didn't want to mention it."

Spare some change?

Drug users and drunks: I've been to the same gas station in one week and been asked for handouts by disheveled older men. If you really want to piss me off, ask for money by creeping up on me. One guy got really pissed when I refused to give him money. Why? You're the one asking a complete stranger for some cash. There are times when I truly hate human contact and I get a little miffed when someone comes up to me to talk especially when its about asking for change to feed your habit.
The second time happened when I drove up in my car to the pump. There was an older man with a cane moving pretty fast up toward the pump. I knew he was going to ask for change because he seemed a bit drunk. Pissed, I sat in my car waiting for the old man to pass, so I didn't have to interact. He started to move slower as if to wait for me to get out of my car.
I sat there...waiting for him to pass. He refused and stopped walking. So, he started yelling at me! “A-a...can I have some change?”
He took the time to yell at me with my window rolled up. Getting more pissed, I just drove off and went to another gas station.
I know I shouldn't get worked up about this sort of thing, but there are times when I want to reduce my interaction with humanity as a whole.  Boom, there are people that will go out of their way to ask you for change.  It also pisses me off that they think I am mark that will be willing to give cash to them.  
I've had that family member with substance abuse problems asking me for handouts too, and I know directly where that change is going. So, that gets me worked up too.
I am not a bleeding heart liberal, but I think people do need a helping hand.  I just don't want my money going toward someone's habit, which is the reason I hate panhandling.  

Kid takes on girl bully and wins

Kid takes on mean bully girl...
I hate bullies and this video is just sweet justice. I've always stated that people need to defend themselves even when they know they're going to take a L. You make it hard for the bully to keep coming back to the point it is too much work kicking your ass. And, plus it builds character to know that you're taking up for yourself.  
What kind of parenting is taking place in the girl's home? Something tells me not much.
Some people have attacked the bus driver for not stopping the fight. Given bus drivers are always attacked in these situations, she did the right thing by calling the cops.
Why didn't the brother intervene when his sister was attacking the fat kid? He got all tough when the fat kid turned the tables and but her in a choke hold. You should have stopped your sister from attacking red shirt guy. How much you want to bet the parents of the girl and brother will blame the bus driver instead of their own kids?
I love the attitude the fat kid has after he settles her down. “You okay?”
Side note: Why is this being taken down from YouTube, but other far worst videos are still up?

US Airways: That Maybe the Worst Twitter post ever...

US Airways: That Maybe the Worst Twitter post ever...
Well, they don't call it a landing strip for nothing (NSFW!). So, a woman kept sending complaint tweets to US Airwways, and she got this tweet back in response. It is of a woman sticking a toy plane in her v-jay-jay. Is this part of the service that US Airways provides for its first class flyers?
So, the company is claiming the twitter picture was merely a mistake. From Washington Post, ((“No, absolutely not,” Miller told The Post via telephone from Fort Worth, Tex., where the company is based. “It was an honest mistake.” ))
Do we really think this was a mistake? It was clearly someone that snapped and wanted to get back at a customer that they thought was bitching too much. So, they tweeted out that strange picture. I have to give US Airways credit for trying to convince everyone that it was a mistake.
By the way, I've been trying to find a censored enough picture to post on this blog, but even the censored ones are a bit much. 
I will never look at toy planes the same again.

The Ultimate long

The Ultimate Warrior
I was surprised to hear that Warrior died because I thought he was in good health given he stayed in shape. However, I've had a love/hate relationship with The Warrior. On one hand, he was a hateful conservative that hated gay people. On the other hand, his nonsense speeches and comic books were a comedic goldmine. He was considered a strange joke on the Internet and myself included gleefully made fun of him on this very blog for years.
 Before all that, I grew up watching Hulk Hogan in the WWF. Then, the Ultimate Warrior came along and attempted to take some of that thunder away from Hulk. He was bigger than Hulk, but he wasn't a good wrestler. So, he sort of faded from WWF. Heck, I watched the WWE special on the guy via Netflix.
While I didn't agree with him, I give him a sendoff. Thanks for all the entertainment in and out of the ring. 

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Part 2 of 2)

The other thing that really works in this movie is the interaction between the characters and the character development. Captain America works for Shield, but he doesn't always like the way they do things. He especially disagrees with Nick Fury. This Cap is not as gun-ho as the Ultimate Universe version. Chris Evans is outstanding as Captain America and seems much stronger in the role. And, he plays well off the other actors.
Anthony Mackie as Falcon turns out to be a good friend of Cap. They start out as playful rivals and become allies. Scarlett Johansson is another actor that receives an extended role. Johansson is not only sexy, but she kicks a lot butt. I hope we will see more of Mackie and Scarlett in the upcoming films.
Fury has an extended role in this movie far more than most of the other Marvel movie to this point. I dare say that he is the linchpin in the story. He sparks the adventure that Cap and Black Widow go on. And, he's played even better here by Sam Jackson. He and Robert Redford have nice scene together, but Redford almost steals the show as the head of Shield. I won't give away more than that.
The story is well-written despite a few leaps of faith. The acting is very good. It feels less like a superhero movie and more like a action spy movie. TWS plays tribute to the first movie without stepping on its toes or retreading. I've been really liking the Phase II of the Marvel Universe a lot and this one fits in the other movies in this phase. Good job.
Grade: A-
~Doctor Strange Mention: Yeah, I caught that. They are gearing up to a Doctor Strange movie.
~Agent Sitwell: You may remember that Sitwell has shown up in a few episodes of Agents of Shield and a few other Marvel movies. Nice touch of continuity there.
~Community actor appearance: I laughed when I saw Abed in a scene late in the movie

Fury:  "What's in your wallet? For real, I need a buck and 25 cents for a pop from the machine."

Game of Thrones: Well that was quick.

Game of Thrones: Well that was quick.
Killing off King Joffrey in episode two of Season 4 was kind of shocking. I already knew he was going to die during his wedding, but I thought the show was going to prolong it for at least the middle of the season. Nope, they actually did it. He ended up dying and getting what he deserved.
They call this the Purple Wedding, and I love that remark because that's what happens to Joffrey's face when he starts to choke. In the words of the Joker in Batman 89, “I'm glad you're dead.” Couldn’t have happened to a worst guy.
Up until the end, he was horrible little bitch-kid wasn't he?
Anyway, I am going to have to re-watch the last act of the episode in order to see if they actually reveal who the killer was in the background.
-The little people play: Yes, Joffrey did this just to insult Tyrion.
-Cup Bearer: I really felt bad for Tyrion when he kept pouring and handing the cup to the King.
-Don't get married in the Game of Thrones universe. Never get married, because everyone dies.
-Brienne is in love...again.

-Kudos to Jack Gleeson for playing one of the most hated villains of our time.   He will be typecast as Joffrey. 
-Well, Tyrion will get the blame for the poison

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Part 1 of 2)

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Part 1 of 2)
TWS is a well directed action movies and it is a nice follow up to the first movie. The movie flows at a nice pace. It is more like an action/spy movie than really a superhero movie. And, that's fine because we have Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 for all the superhero stuff. This movie is more about action and car chases. There are a few problems with the overall plot, which I won't spoil because it involves a plot twist. It is minor in the grand scheme of things. The Winter Soldier is a fine tuned machine and a nice action movie with some charming character moments.  
This sequel is directed by the new team of Anthony Russo and Joe Russo. Going in, I thought the movie would feel like a lite-reboot in the same manner as GI Joe II. However, they actually take great pains to reference the first movie directed by Joe Johnston . This movie does have a more modern film feel, but at least there are callbacks to the style of the first movie. Many of the references are in the form of flashbacks.
The movie also has a strong sense of the larger Marvel world that this story takes place. We get many mentions of Tony Stark and his family (also there is a strong implication about his father's fate that would changes Tony Stark if only he knew). There is a bigger world going on here with tons upon tons of hints and foreshadowing that DC only wished they could pull off. I know people are saying this movie stands on its own, but I don't think it does, and that's not a bad thing. You get a better understanding if you watch the other Marvel movies.
My other problem is the camera gets a little too shaky in the action scenes and you want to see some of the fighting involved. There are a lot of smooth moves from various characters in the close quarters fighting scenes, and some of them are almost ruined by the jerky camera and editing. However, that's not always the case for most of the movie.
As I stated before, the action scenes are very good and build upon themselves. The tanker/ship mission at the beginning feels like a cooler version of Metal Gear Solid 2, and I am sure that was their influence in this section of the movie. I should also mention that there is a sweet one on one fight between Captain America and and a MMA fighter. Another cool scene involves Nick Fury fighting off some bad guys in his modified up automobile. Another set-piece is the fight on the highway. Very cool. Take note, Michael Bay!
The movie is impressive to see on the big screen. Most of the CGI and practical effects are very well-crafted with little to no flaws. Again, I just wished the camera would stand still sometimes so we can witness the craftsmanship of the scenes firsthand. The mixture between the effects is outstanding.
I think the movie mixes the better aspects of both the Ultimate and Normal Marvel comic book versions of Captain America into a nice Movie Version.  

Captain America not only has super strength, but knockout farts.  When he clears a room, he clears a room.

Well that was strange...

Yesterday, I was riding my new bicycle through an area near Downtown Louisville.
As I crossed an intersection, I rode a little bit more and I heard a horrible thud and scrapping sounds. There was a scream from a woman and a “oh shit”. I knew something horrible had happened. Someone just got hit by a car or something. I've heard the sound before.
I turned my head to see a shoe fall to the street and a shitty pink bicycle come rest. To the right of the intersection, a black teen laid in the street. So, this older teen had just been struck by a car...actually a big ass SUV. He had a female companion who also had a bike too standing on the sidewalk. She did nothing to really help her struck partner. The SUV hit him so hard that it knocked him out of his shoe and as well as off the bike.
To everyone's surprise, the teen got up. He actually leaped up as if being struck by a SUV was a minor discomfort for him. He grabbed his now messed up bicycle and shoe and headed over to the sidewalk to his female friend. They stood there for a minute.
I shook my head. I busted a U-Turn and headed for the guy driving the SUV, who was now calling the cops. I spoke to him.
He ran the red light and I hit him,” the older SUV driver stated to me. He was clearly shaken. “He refused to give me his name. And, he says he's okay. I need to call this in for insurance purposes. Look at the damage.”
There was some deep scratches on the hood where the bike impacted.
The teen and his female friend started to walk away as if nothing happened! The teen wanted NOTHING to do with the accident, which indicted he didn't want to talk to the cops. I guessed he was either high or had some warrants. The teen couldn't be bothered to stay around. How does one react in such a manner after getting hit by a damn SUV?
The teen and his friend made it about half a block before the cop showed up. We showed where the teen was located and the cop rolled over there to stop the teen. I left after that, but not before the driver of the SUV thanked me for staying with him until the cop showed up. I guess he just needed someone to talk to.
I am not sure what happened to the teen after that. That's just nuts.

Community GI Joe Episode (GI Jeff)

Community GI Joe Episode
The name of the episode is GI Jeff and I loved every minute. The people that made this episode pretty much loved the old show. I also got a kick out of them twisted the show into a strange mind trip that Jeff is going through via his childhood.  It is a good nostalgia episode that's for sure.  
My only gripe about the episode is that they didn't use the stock-music that they used on both GI Joe and Transformers.
-The Theme Song: Yeah, they got that right. They recorded a new song that pretty much sums up GI Joe.
-They even gave the episode an in-continuity Title Card, which is different than the one from the Community show. “Government Issue Jeff”
-Some of the main cast members from the show reprise their roles for the episode. Michael Bell came back as Duke.  It looks like Bill Ratner was playing Flint, but he isn't listed on IMDB.
-I love they talk about the fact Cobra attacks a tourist attraction site for no reason.
-Why is General Hawk siting in the crowd during the Court Martial? Shouldn't he be in the front of the room with the other commanders?
-Also, there is a wooden dummy and two Gun-Ho's in the crowd!: Is the wooden dummy a reference to Tekken?  
-Lip-sync mistakes.  The old show was full of them.  
-Destro gets killed.  Brilliant
-Three Kids:  Yeah, there are people that keep reminding you that they spawned kids.  
-I always hated Lifeline.  I think someone in the writer's room hated him too...
-No Transformers joke or Cobra Commander/Starscream joke?
-If you look closely, they even added the disfigurement of Cobra Commander's face when he starts to “fall apart” . He has multiple eyes. That's a nice touch, given that they revealed this in the 80s movie and not on the show.
 Yes, that's Dan Harmon as Sleep Apnea .

Toni Braxton” You're Makin' Me High

Toni Braxton” You're Makin' Me High
I remember watching this video back in the day. It is a very fun and funny video. I always like seeing these women rate all the men that come up the elevator and playing around. This song came out way back in 1996 when I was still a teenager fresh out of high school. Damn, the 90s songs are now considered oldies.
Wiki says that this song was meant for Brandy, but they moved it over to Toni instead. That's probably why it sounds like it meant for a younger singer. You can almost hear Brandy singing it.
By the way, some of things that Toni sings about is a bit dirty.  
-Toni Braxton in a skin-tight white suit: I am down. BTW, she's never looked hotter than she does in this video. Damn, girl.
-90s Computer E-mail: Yes, her laptop has some early text messages on it.
-Tisha Campbell: Yes, that's the lovely Tisha from Martin and House Party in the music video. I love her reactions to the men. She's really having a good time. I also like that she leaves with one of the men in the elevator!
-Vivica A. Fox Yep, the other one is Fox. What happened to VAF? She was in everything for a good minute. Again, another attractive black woman.
-Old Pimp: I love the fat pimp that shows up and making it rain.
-Pizza Delivery Guy: I also like that a random Pizza guy shows up.
-Best part: The nerdy white guy! I hope he got laid.
-Cotton Candy Room?: Does Toni own a bathroom covered in cotton candy? How much does this cost? Does she have to worry about ants?

-Zoot Suits: Yes, this was the era when Zoot Suits made a come back.  
Toni, call me...maybe?

Going to see Captain America 2

Going to see Captain America 2 today...wish me luck.
Here's hoping that the storm doesn't effect the theater or my driving to get there.  

David Letterman Retiring

David Letterman Retiring
I was more of a Letterman kind of guy growing up mainly because he was more into doing skits and bringing in strange/fake guests. He felt more like SNL than Carson did. Carson was a showman and host, and Letterman was an entertainer/comedian. I also liked that he wasn't a company man either. He would make fun of the higher ups. I stayed up late sometimes to watch Letterman after Carson.
I thought he got screwed out of The Tonight Show when Leno took over. And, he found a home CBS. Ratings weren't as good as CBS wanted, but they made money off of the show.
I can see why Letterman wants to leave. From LA Times, ((While Letterman dominated the late-night ratings 20 years ago, his show is more of an also-ran these days. "Late Show" is edged out by Kimmel among young adults — and Fallon has a more than 2-to-1 lead there.))
I also think Kimmel and Fallon come from the Letterman school of hosting. Have bits and have an edge. It is interesting that they're beating him in the ratings. Part of that has to do with the Internet presence they have in promotion.
So long, Letterman and happy retirement.

Now, what is Paul Shaffer going to do with his time?  Blues Brothers 3000?

Ensign Hoshi is in a commercial

Ensign Hoshi is in a commercial

I was watching a news video and this video came up. I watched it and noticed the actress looked familiar. Then it dawned on me. It was Linda Park from Star Trek Enterprise! I was like, “Holy crap, that's Hoshi Sato.” Linda is into theater of late, but it is good to see her on these ads too. I also like that she hasn't distanced herself from the Trek fandom as she seems to hang out with some of her former cast-mates.
I always found Linda Park more attractive than the blown up lips and big boobed Vulcan female lead. I liked Jolene Blalock especially in the last two seasons, but I just felt the tight catsuits didn't fit well with the Vulcan way. I always felt like it was the Network saying, “This is what guys find attractive!” And, wouldn't kick Blalock out of bed either...I am just saying.  You don't need to put a woman in a tight suit to make her sexy.
