The Wonder Years

     Ever wonder what would happen if you took Daniel Stern's voice over away from an episode of "The Wonder Years?"

More Comic Book Movies On the Horizon

     I picked up my tickets for The Dark Knight today for a Saturday showing. Word on the street is the movie is Oscar worthy. I'm highly skeptical, but we shall see.

I'm more excited to check out the new theater that opened just down the road from me. 15 giant screens, 2 IMAX screens, full restaurant/bar (you can take the food and drinks into the screening with you) and self-serve soda fountain machines. Should be pretty kick ass.

I'm from Minnesota

     Story today from those whackos over in cheese country...

APPLETON, Wisc. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A couple in Wisconsin telephoned police in the middle of the night after finding a man in their basement covered head to toe in barbecue sauce.

"He told the officers that it was urban camouflage," said the homeowner.

The homeowners say they woke up to whistling sounds. The husband grabbed his shotgun and headed toward the basement where he found the sauced-up intruder. He held him at gunpoint until police arrived.

The guy told officers he had covered himself in barbecue sauce because he wanted to hide from the government.

He now faces burglary charges.

More Garfield Minus Garfield

     Sure it's old hat at this point, but this stuff still cracks me up on a daily basis. Yesterday's was particularly great:

My Lolla Schedule

     By no means is this set in stone and very likely subject to change, but here's a rough look at my weekend of Aug 1:

My Lollapalooza Schedule

FINALLY! FINALLY! FINALLY!

     Took home the $75 prize at movie trivia on Thursday night. The douchebags in the corner left in disgrace as I ruled supreme. Yeah, instead of relying on your superior numbers, maybe hop on the internet and know what the poster for "Mama-Mia" looks like and you'd stand a chance against my superior intellect.

Or maybe it had something to do with my team's name: The Little Lebowski Urban Achievers.

User Reviews

     Netflix is a nice little tool and a great way to get access to movies you might not find at your local video rental store. But some of the people on there write some of the dumbest, most inane, unintelligent reviews for movies I've ever seen. I'm not the world's greatest writer (FAR from it) and I also understand film is subjective; but c'mon. If you're going to hate a movie, hate a movie for the right reasons - not because you're a dumb-ass.

A Scanner Darkly is a film I didn't particularly enjoy (though would like to revisit) and I say why. But here is an excerpt from a Netflix user, who goes by the original handle of "txb 122525", who chimed in with his $.02 on why the movie sucks...

WOW...this crap should come with a disclaimer that it is actually anime and bad anime at that!!! Actually it looks like they filmed it and then animated over it. Why would they even consider producing a film like this? Either make an anime or a live action movie. Don't film live action and then animate it...pure stupidity. I was so distracted by the animation of live action that i could not even pay attention to whatever story they were trying to tell. Simply put...WASTE OF A RENTAL unless you like animation of live action...but if you enjoy live action...WASTE OF TIME


Two words: tool shed.
