Dr. Doom’s Squirrelish Defeat

January 31, 2008 at 11:11 am (Comics, Weapons of Mass Enjoyment)

In the previous post, I did some research of some comic book characters, and yes, in a Squirrel Girl comic, Dr. Doom was defeated by an army of squirrels. I’ll just let that sink in for a second. WHile it sinks, here is a picture to confirm my statement.

The Office Quotes 1

January 30, 2008 at 4:30 pm (Quotes, Television)

 

The Office has some great dialogue, and here is some of it’s best examples, just from the first 3 episodes.

Michael: WHAZZUP!?
Jim: Whazzup…I still love that, after seven years…

Michael: [concerning the downsizing] Am I going to tell them? No, I’m not going to tell them. I don’t see the point of that. As a doctor, you would not tell a patient if they had cancer.

Michael: People I respect, heroes of mine, would be: Bob Hope, um, Abraham Lincoln, definitely, Bono…uh, and probably God would be the fourth one. And, I just think all those people really, uh, helped the world in so many ways, that it’s, um, it’s really beyond words. It’s really “incalculcable.”

Mr. Brown: At Diversity Today, we believe it’s very easy to be a hero. All you need are honesty, empathy, respect, and open-mindedness.
Dwight: Ah, excuse me? I’m sorry, but that’s not all it takes to be a hero.
Mr. Brown: Great, well, what is a hero to you?
Dwight: A hero kills people, people that wish him harm. A hero is part human and part supernatural. A hero is born out of a childhood trauma, or out of a disaster, that must be avenged.
Mr. Brown: Uh, you’re thinking of a superhero.
Dwight: We all have a hero in our heart.

Michael: [after role-playing exercise] You’ll notice I didn’t have anybody being Arab. I thought that would be too explosive…no pun intended. But I just thought, ‘too soon’ for Arabs. Maybe next year. The ball’s in their court.

Michael: Abraham Lincoln once said that “If you are a racist, I will attack you with the North,” and those are the principles I carry with me in the workplace.
Kevin: [to Angela who is role-playing as a Jamaican] Do you wanna go to the beach?
Angela: Sure.
Kevin: Do you wanna get high?
Angela: No.
Kevin: I think you do…mon.
Michael: [after the role-playing exercise] Man, I should’ve gotten some food.
Kevin: [still role-playing as an Italian] Maybe some spaghetti.
Michael: Okay, Kevin, you can take off that thing. That would really, really show him up, wouldn’t it? If I brought in some burritos or some colored greens or some pad thai. I love pad thai.
Stanley: It’s “collard greens.”
Michael: What?
Stanley: It’s “collard greens.”
Michael: No, that doesn’t really make any sense. Because you don’t call them “collared” people. That’s offensive.
Michael: You know what, here’s what we’re going to do. Let’s go around and everybody, everybody, name a race you are attracted to sexually. I will go last. (Dwight raises his hand) Go!
Dwight: I have two. White and Indian.
(Kelly, who is Indian, is sitting next to him and gives a shocked expression)
Michael: I regret my actions. I regret offending my co-workers. I pledge to bring my best spirit of honesty, empathy, respect, and openmindedness…openmindedness, is that a word? Um…into the workplace. In this way, I can truly be a hero. Signed (holds up the paper) Daffy Duck. (laughs) He’s gonna lose it when he reads that.
Dwight: Count Choculitus.
Jim: [whistles] Sounds serious.
Dwight: Why did you write that Jim? Is it because you know I love Count Chocula?
Jim: Do you?
Dwight [Reading suggestions for health-care coverage]: Who thought of this one? Anal fissures.
Kevin: That’s a real thing.
Dwight: Yeah, but no one here has it.
Kevin: [quietly] Someone has it.
Dwight: In the wild, there is no health care. In the wild, health care is, ‘Ow, I hurt my leg. I can’t run. A lion eats me. I’m dead.’ Well, I’m not dead. I’m the lion. You’re dead. 
Dwight: Through concentration, I can raise and lower my cholesterol at will.
Pam: Why would you want to raise your cholesterol?
Dwight: So I can lower it. 
Jim: (talking head) Right now this is just a job. If I advance any higher in this company, this would be my career. And, uh, if this were my career, I’d have to throw myself in front of a train.

January 30, 2008 at 4:16 pm (Video Games)

At a recent gaming event, it was confirmed that there will be a game based on the semi-popular Saw movies, which is currently on Saw 15? Isn’t it? Anyway, the game has no confirmed platforms, and has been set for a release next year in October. You can be sure you won’t be able to find the review of this sure-to-flop game here any time soon.

The Managers

January 29, 2008 at 8:48 pm (Movies)

I really think there should be a movie about football managers. Probably a comedy. Think about it, that aspect has never really been explored. And I myself was a manager for my high school football team, a good one at that. There’s plenty to make a good, funny, solid movie off of. DS can back me up here. I really hope somebody does this one day, and pays me some of the royalties.

Heroes Fan Fiction-Initiation

January 29, 2008 at 3:52 pm (Fan Fiction, Television)

 

These are little mini-fan-episodes I’ll start writing describing what could have happened at certain times in the series.

As Noah pulled the black 1979 Cadillac into the alley a couple of blocks from the target house, he had a flurry of emotions running through him. What am I doing in this Company? How will this affect my family? Who are these people I’ve been sent to meet? He walked through the street past all of the apartments, as non-chalantly as possible, eventually reaching the house. “The Petrellis, this is it.” He walked up to the front door, but before knocking he though of what he was about to do. Posing as a salesman, kidnapping their son, and running experiments, on an infant! He shook off the thoughts, and knocked on the door. A middle-aged woman came to the door, awfully inquisitive of his purposes. “Get out, I know what you’re here for, and you’ve already done enough to this family, now leave!” she said in her forceful-yet still small voice. Noah signaled with his left hand, and his partner struck. Claude, the invisible man, used his power and sneaked out of his earlier hiding position. He grabbed a hold of young Nathan, but before he could get out, he has a fight on his hands with Dallas, who quickly wrestled Nathan out of Claude’s hands. Noah panicked, not knowing what to do, took Claude by the shoulder and got him to invisibly get them out of there. He wasn’t sure what his future held, but he knew if it was anything like that, he didn’t know if he could take it too long, or if he did, he would need time and experience.

Guitar Hero On Tour?

January 29, 2008 at 7:07 am (Video Games)

 

Activision has confirmed plans for a new Guitar Hero game, but most likely, it is headed for the DS. They had originally confirmed that the Guitar Hero franchise would be coming to both of Nintendo’s platforms, but until now, there has been no word of a DS installment. Now it is likely that Guitar Hero On Tour will be heading to the DS soon. It is said it will use a guitar attachment, but I think it would be fine, and fun, with the touch controls. Let me know what you think.

Oldies Sunday-The Green Mile

January 28, 2008 at 3:47 pm (Movies)

 

I know it’s late, but I forgot about it. Anyway, here’s the review of one of my favorite movies of all time, The Green Mile.

(10.00/10.00) “When God Himself asks me why I destroyed one of his greatest gifts, what am I supposed to say? That is was my job?” This only one of the great quotes from the fantastic movie, The Green Mile. The story is based on a classic Stephen King set of stories, taking place in 1930s Louisiana. Several guards work on death row, and thanks to the oddly colored floors, they call it the green mile. One day a new inmate (Micheal Clarke Duncan) comes in, and noone really pays that much attention to him. That is until they discover he has the ability to heal other things, just by touching them. A miracle, if you will. I must say the acting by Micheal Clarke Duncan is phenomenal, he perfectly pulls off the hospitable, kind southern man who is genuinely kind to others. The performance by Tom Hanks and the rest is also fantastic. I cryed at this movie, and if you don’t during the final execution, there is something wrong with you. The movie is rated R, and I can see why, but it is still good nonetheless. I loved this movie, and you should too.

Heroes Genesis Final Act StoryBoard

January 27, 2008 at 7:43 pm (Television)

This is a really cool storyboard I found on the HeroesWiki of the final scene in Genesis where Peter steps off the building trying to fly and Nathan flys up, revealing his power while trying to save Peter. This is one of my favorite moments in Heroes and is really cool to see in storyboard.

Mr. Monk and the Three Julies

January 27, 2008 at 1:44 pm (Television)

Another superb and hillarious Monk episode this week, Monk is unstoppable! The second half of season 6 is shaping up very well and will defnitely be one of my favorites. This episode starts off with Monk and the gang at a call, with Captain Stottlemeyer showing off his new car. While Monk and Natalie are left outside, a call comes in on a homicide of a Julie Teeger, the same name of Natalie’s daughter. She bolts, and takes off with Captain’s car, and I’d like to mention I really liked how they displayed the emotional depth of Natalie in this episode. Anyway, the Captain shows up to find his rear view mirror knocked off of his new car, the others show up to realize it was another Julie Teeger, a woman who was stabbed and killed in her home. At that crime scene, another Julie Teeger homicide is called in, and Natalie bolts again. She takes the Captain’s car again, and drives off to the next scene, where it is another Julie Teeger. This time, the Captain shows up to find his hood all dented in and his fender smashed, where after Natalie says she took the creek, he hillariously repeated, “there’s no bridge across the creek”. The new victim was ran over by the same guy, a serial killer taking out Julie Teegers. Anyway, Monk, the Captain, and Randy go to another Julie Teeger’s house to warn her. They find her dead, and the report reveals she had been dead for 3 months, but her unstable son had stuffed her and held on to her. Monk has a hillarious time discovering the body, and immediately had to have a session with Dr. Kroger, where they discuss his wife’s tourette’s syndrome. Randy then poses as the dead mom when the son comes back, which lead to a hillarious panicky Randy begging for them to come and get him off. They take him into custody, where Monk realizes that the son had a knife with him, but the first victim was killed with a steak knife. He investigated the home of the second victim where he found a ripped off piece of tape that matched a box at the first victim’s home. He had solved the case. Here’s what happened: The first victim’s husband was having an affair, and the woman who he was cheating with had sent a package with his things to his wife, however, it had accidentally been sent to the other Julie Teeger, the second victim. It happened all the time, so she sent it to the first victim. He killed his wife, and then went and killed the other. This was a great episode and I look forward to next week’s Mr. Monk Paints his Masterpiece.

Star Wars Battlefront 2

January 27, 2008 at 1:25 pm (Video Games)

 

(8.75/10.00) The second installment in the Battlefront franchise, this is easily one of my favorite Star Wars games. It’s hard to say the time frame for it, because it takes place whenever you want. My favorite mode, Galactic Conquest, has you battling for complete…conquest of your given galaxy while fighting the enemy’s attempts at control of the galaxy. One thing that’s unique is the variation, with 5 different timeframes to play GC in. You can play as the rebels against the empire, the republic against the droid army, the empire against the rebels (which means shooting Ewoks) and more. There are several upgrades and other units to buy, and the classic purchase of a hero to help you out. I kicked butt as Luke Skywalker at Mygeeto. The game was over in 1 minute. There are also several other possibilities, including different challenges, and the quick play which allows you to pick several battles to play in succession. Sometimes in Conquest I just didn’t feel like battling the same people over though, which sometimes happened. I really liked this game for the PSP, and it provided and filled all of my Star-Wars-on-the-go battling needs.
