Yoda's too sexy.




The truly sad thing is: If I had an extra $600, I’d TOTALLY buy a life size yoda statue.

Yeah, so, I’m probably not going to burst anyone’s bubble when I say this… AvP was amazingly not great. The funny thing is, the first time I heard about it, I thought to myself “There’s no way in hell they can make this concept into a decent film”. Then, I saw the last trailer, and detected a whiff of plot, especially since Lance Henriksen was going to be involved, presumably as some form of his android self, my hopes were raised to at least respectable levels.

Alas, no plot actually materialized in the film itself. I would have been happy with any scrap of new mythos, legend, origins, or what-have-you for either species… but we got a couple of cool fight scenes and some questionable “humour” choices that I won’t go into in here. All in all, a fun film, but it left a little to be desired.

I’d like to think I’ve learned from this experience….but I’ll probably go see Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash anyway.

“Good…Bad…I’m the guy with the gun.”

Not Everyone Gets To Be An Astronaut When They Grow Up.




So why is it, that when we are so busy that we barely have time to blink, that we are literally brimming with events in our lives to talk about, that we get so bogged down that even though every day we say “Today I’m going to post!”, it never comes to fruition?

Eh. Life Sucks, get a helmet.

So, as I just alluded to, Raven and I are super-size-me busy. So I will just post a couple of things that are rattling around in my head and then we’ll see about resuming our normal broadcast schedule.

So, Raven has already mentioned that we went to Ground Zero. That was fun. It reminded me a lot of City Club, but it doesn’t quite boast the hours of that establishment. It was a bummer to have to leave at 2am. I don’t understand why after Minnesota finally gets some of its act together in terms of nightlife by extending bar close to 2am, that the places that were normally open after bar close have not followed suit and extended their hours to coincide…. <grr>

Also, Raven & I went to Best Buy on Monday night so that we could buy Doom 3 at 12:01am! We both ended up getting free Doom 3 T-shirts and I even managed to answer a trivia question correctly, scoring a 93X T-shirt and a pass to a preview of AvP. So, all-in-all, it was a pretty sweet deal.

So, you’re basically all caught up. Well, maybe not, but I think that’s enough for today….

Oh yeah, read on if you want to hear my complaints about the Taste of Minnesota.
