Go Watch WALL•E

June 30, 2008

It is as simple as that, you need to go watch WALL•E. If you want to stop reading that’s fine because you already read the most important part of what I am going to say. Incase you missed it, go watch WALL•E.

Pixar has created an amazing gem of a film here that really blurs the lines of what is a kid’s film and what is a movie for adults. From the sober opening to the goofy robot chase, everything just works and clicks. What they did was create an amazing sci-fi film with a great atmosphere and message and then wrapped it in a cute and loving animation that everyone can like. For me, Pixar hit it with Toy Story 2, then it was Monsters, Inc. and now WALL•E takes the top pedestal position. I don’t want to say much more other than that and also the short film at the opening of the movie, a Pixar standard, is now their best as well. And yes, it does have a hoedown in it.

I Survived Nothing But an American Game Show

June 30, 2008

As soon as I saw the previews for this crap show, I knew something was wrong. There is no way any real Japanese gameshow would let some random American reality show clog up their schedule with filming some stupid shit. And it is just now that more people are realizing the truth that the show, I Survived a Japanese Game Show, is fake.

From the fact that every game on the show is a poor rip off of older shows to their “Japanese host” who is an American actor, there is not a shred of reality in the mixture. What is great is that more people are realizing it and hopefully the show will end fast.

BOO!

Final Fantasy: PIV Page is Live

June 27, 2008

Well to celebrate a glorious return to the blogging world and also MaoChan’s new design, I have released the first version of the greatest drinking game ever conceived. Don’t get me wrong but Kings gets stale, Beer Pong (whatever the fuck version you play) requires room and equipment, and Flip Cup is just that (read: Stupid). So now here is a drinking game that feeds the nerd side of people and offers complexity, strategy, cunning, and most of all, the opportunity to drink a fuckton of alcohol.

Check out the page listed on the top, right-hand side of the site.

Enjoy.

Million Kazoku

June 27, 2008

After seeing the atrocious shit that was the ABC show I Survived A Japanese Gameshow, in all its fake glory (the host is American and the show does not air in Japan), I figured it was time to remind people what real Japanese game shows are like. I have posted before about a personal favorite called Haneru no Tobira many times. But here is one that not many people know about called Million Kazoku.

The premise of the show is that they have famous people, singers and tv actors, come to your house and you have 30 minutes to hide in your house. If someone can stay hidden the full time, you win 1,000,000 Yen ($10,000 US roughly). The cool thing too is that the families are encouraged to cheat a bit. If you hit the jump, there is another episode where the family’s daughter gets shoved somewhere pretty creative, and no it is not in someone’s ass.

Kim Couture Gets Hulk Smashed to The Jaw

June 25, 2008

The other night was a crazy night for MMA that has lots of people milling around wondering what should be done about women in MMA, the current brutality level of the sport, and how injuries should be handled when sustained in the ring. The fight was between Kim Rose and new comer Kim Couture, wife of the The Natural himself, Randy Couture.

Seconds into the fight Kim’s jaw was broken in two places and her nose broken as well. She ended up sticking out all 3 rounds but people are now questioning if such a thing should have even been allowed to happen once such an injury has occurred. Either way gotta give her props for being one tough as fuck mofo to handle that kind of pain while still getting hit in the face for another 13 minutes.

Hit the jump for rounds 2 & 3

60 Bacon Sliced Whopper

June 24, 2008

First God created Bacon. Bacon needed somewhere to live so he made Earth. But Bacon needed consumption, so he made people. But then stupid people shunned God and to punish them he put Bacon into pigs so that it was harder to get at it (before it was just walking around everywhere). People defied God and found the Bacon, locked away.

Once the secret was unearthed, it was sold to Burger King so that someone could go in and order a Whopper with 15 servings of Bacon on top, 4 slices per serving. And the man rejoiced, in his mouth was Bacon, in his heart was vindication, and in his soul he felt he had killed God.

Bacon.

BankQuest Levels Up Your Money

June 23, 2008

I am tired of having change all around. I hate pennies and wish I could do something useful like play a game when I have a pocket full of nickels and dimes. Now with BankQuest you can take those slivers of metal and turn them into weapons and armor for your adventurer as you play through this RPG quest.

Made by Takara, famous for their Walkie Bits and other toys, the BankQuest will hold yup to 50,000 yen which is $500 American although I assume less since we don’t have $1 & $5 coins in our country and NO that stupid Sacajawea didn’t pan out into real currency so it doesn’t count. Goes on sale August 7th.

That sword, I’ll pay a fine price.
