Quickly, Quickly…

Holy crap…how long has it been? Last few weeks have been cray-cray!  (I do so love that expression.  By my next blog it’ll be so over I’ll wish for “Waaazzzzzuuuup!” to make a return.  Or perhaps “Yeah, baby!”)

So lets just catch up and I’ll lay some knowledge on you.  For example, later this month will be the “official” one-year anniversary of this place being open for business.  I don’t really think we got going until August, but since my first post here was a re-blog of one of my Facebook notes…yeah.  (Speaking of Facebook, how ’bout when some of us thought Google+ was gonna run roughshod over Zuckerberg?  Also, what the fuck is “roughshod”?)  But the point is, thanks for reading (and following and sharing!) because as I sit here and review stats I’ve had close to 43,000 views since then.  Sure, a good 1/3 of those are from people reading my Big Bang Theory rant (actually, only 7,148 views on that one, but still…)

But enough about me!  My delusions of grandeur are well-documented. It’s time to see what draws some of you miscreants to this sordid chunk of the interwebs. Here are todays’ top search criteria, or rather the searches that led folks here…

Who exactly is Paul Watson?  I mean, we might be related!  (Actually, I think it’s in reference to the Canadian environmental activist who fights against things like shark finning, which some of you know I absolutely detest.  If he’s a douchebag for trying to stop a ship from engaging in that horrible practice, then the Canadian connotation of “douchebag” must really mean “epic hero with balls of solid vibranium.”)

Technically, it’s “Free Captain Watson with purchase of regular drink” but it’s a nice gesture.

 

Also, what exactly would happen if the Hulk actually fought the movie “The Incredible Hulk?”  I mean, on a metaphysical level it would be interesting.  Like, if he stood outside the theater protesting with a big sign that read “HULK THINK TOO MUCH PATHOS!!  GRRAAAAAAGHHH!!  STILL BETTER THAN ANG LEE MOVIE!! HULK NOT PAY FOURTEEN DOLLARS FOR LARGE POPCORN COMBO!!” I would show up and cheer him on.  If, however, he literally fought the cast, crew, writer, director, producer, and food service people…whoa, that could get ugly.  I love Edward Norton, but pound-for-pound I’m going with the Other Guy.

” I will not be bullied by some dissatisfied fanbo–GAAAHHHH!!!!”

 

And I believe that P-90X is on the way out.  So is that “Insanity” thing.  Yep.  They’re the new Tae-Bo and soon health-conscience men and women will be engaging in the new hotness:  The Dinosaur Meme Workout.  It’s great, only takes fifteen minutes of Reddit a day, and leaves you with a lean, sexy core! Why, even Carrot Top is using it!  remember when he was a skinny redheaded Wendy’s rip-off?  Well, feast your eyes!

Wait, no! I meant AVERT your eyes! Avert! Man, I’m so sorry, guys.

Thanks for reading, though.  Writing feels good.  Having someone read it is better.

 

 

 

Super Questions…

Well, it’s been a good week and kind of a “meh” week.  On one hand, Reddit hates me because I trashed “Big Bang Theory.”  It’s okay:  that’s what Reddit does, and I’m cool with that. At the other end of the spectrum, one of my Tweets made Tosh.0 the other night.  Score.  Andy Warhol said that in the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes.  But he said that in the 70’s.  Adjusted for inflation, everyone will be famous for about the length of a “Guy on a Buffalo” video.  Shit, I almost made it…

Anyway.  In part to make up for the geek-related hatred my last blog spawned, I thought I’d ask for your help in clearing up some  comic-related issues I had.  For example:

Wolverine’s Healing Properties

So, Wolvie’s gone through some serious backstory/retconning over the last fifteen years or so.  (SPOILER ALERT: his name isn’t Logan!)  Once, he had all the adamantium removed from his body by Magneto.  Ouch.  The good news is that he discovered that his healing properties were actually being hindered by all that metal.  Once, he was completely incinerated…and GREW BACK!!  That got me wondering.  What if Wolverine got cut in half?  Is it beyond the realm of possibility that he would grow into TWO Wolverines? Like cutting a worm in half?  Or would his lower torso just shrivel up and die?  If he did grow a whole new self, it would be kind of selfish of him NOT to cut himself in half a bunch of times in order to grow a whole army…ARMY X!!  SNIKT!!

HULK WANT TWO WOLVERINES!!

Planet of the Apes

This is a stretch, but in the far-flung future, when Apes Rule Everything Around Me, what if one of them were bitten by, say, a radioactive spider?  What would he call himself?  “Spider Monkey,” of course.  But that would be like a modern-day superhero calling himself European American or somesuch.  Also, what good would the ability to climb be to a race of beings that, well…already climb real good-like?

A crime is in progress...must throw poop!

Superman is a dick

Cracked covered this in one of their articles about movie editing, but it’s always bothered me, so we’ll discuss.  In the movie “Superman” ol’ Supes flies to the rescue of a town that’s about to be wiped out by a breaking dam.  But by so doing, he lets Lois Lane die when her car gets all fucked-up by the earthquake.  Superman gets all sad, and you remember what happened next: he flies around the world, super-fast…backwards…to REVERSE TIME! (Suck it, Einstein!)  Then he swoops down, says something witty, and rescues Lois.  Yayyy!  Love conquers all! Except that, you know…by rescuing Lois, he’s nowhere NEAR the GODDAM DAM (see what I did there?) that’s about to break and wipe out a village of 3,000 souls.  Did I miss something?  I mean, shit, even Spock knows that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.  Way to go, Superfag.

In fairness, THIS is the worst thing to come out of the Superman franchise.

The Hulk’s pajama jeans

They’re really the only possible explanation.  But why purple?  Purple stretch jeans that don’t get ripped to shreds and expose his big, green junk to the world?  Where the fuck do you even BUY those?  Jesus, Dr. Banner…I thought you were a genius or something.  Too bad you dress like a homeless guy hanging around outside of Denny’s.

You wouldn't like me when I'm angr-GAAHHH!! BEES! BEES IN MY MIND!! I'LL FIGHT YOU!
