Dane Cook


Hi. I am Dane Cook...what is with a family member ripping you off for millions.. You know..I am  just working and I go to the ATM. You know the magic money machine. You know the one where you tap in the lil code...you know the lil code that gives you the money. If you don't have that code you don't get YOUR money from the magic money machine. No. You don't. So I go the magic money machine and go boop boop boop boop. While making sure no one was peeking at my lil code. And you know what I didn't have to worry about that be cause my brother already wiped me out. I knew i should have protected my code better. So what if he was my business manager.
thank you check out my  myspace...its myspace.com/imadouche

PS3

Been lazy as hell during the holidays. Got a PS3 for christmas. I have one game for it. No blu ray discs and I am trying to figure out the whole downloading thing and why it takes so long. I did download The Omega Man though. I still think this movie is better then the I AM LEGEND, reimagination of the book. It just had  more of the psychology in it. So now I am going to by a Blu ray movie to see if it lives up to all the hype.

Time Warp

Check out the Discovery Channel show Time Warp. They use a photosonics package ( camera that shoots a high frame rate) to slow down what happens when an event happens. I remember using it on tv commercials when I worked in tabletop production. Nothing like a slow motion burger grill shot to wet the appetites of the masses. But anyway picture a bullet being slowed down enough so you can see what kind of impact it makes...Or liquid nitrogen expanding in a 2 liter soda bottle  and then exploding. Its a pretty cool show..

Hockey

I am a biiiiiig time hockey fan...Big big big.....Did I mention Big time? Gary Bettman is killing the sport slowly.  No body wants to watch European style hockey in the US or Canada. Stop eliminating the legal checks and fighting. There are so many cheap shots these days because the players can not police themselves like they did for so many years.  All I know is hockey was about to become really popular in 93-95 but Bettman let their be a contract dispute and killed all the momentum that was built up those years. Bettman and George Lucas are 2 of my least favorite people in the world.

Jar Jar Binks


I tried to give the clone wars tv series a chance..What sealed the deal for me never wanting to watch it ever again, is the worst character ever created. JAR JAR BINKS. Seriously, Lucas, what have we done to you to deserve the worst character ever made to still be alive in the SW universe?
MEESA HATESA YOUSA LUCAS...

Gas

I guess I am dreaming. Can it really be that we have gas under 2 bucks a gallon again? Does anyone believe its because there is more production and less use? I doubt it. How about this...Shit we've screwed the american people enough.( big oil) Yeah we made enough money for now...How are we doing in our alternate fuels divisions. We had that done 2 yrs ago..If they thought we were making money off of oil, wait till they see how much we make off of these fuels. Bwahahahahahhaha.

The Three Musketeers

Sean Avery, Plaxico Burress, Stephon Marbury. 2 of which the teams don't want because there trouble. And 1  is just dumb. Avery getting not welcomed back to the Stars because of a comment he made about his exes. Must be a really bad guy when a team thats had you for less then 1/2  a season  wants to get rid of you. Marbury, when you name a clothing/sneaker line Starbury it kind of tells you what type of ego you have. Plaxico..just imagine if he had the gun in the front waist band of his sweats...I wonder if they were Starbury.

South Park

How come I feel like Kenny sometimes.  I wake up in the morning not worrying about anything and the next thing I know i end up getting killed is some weird way. What up with that?

A whole week

Well almost a whole week has gone by since I posted. Was I ever working like a dog this week. I somehow was caught in a time loop and ended up working a total of 7 days in  a 5 day period. How the hell does that happen? Superman didn't make the Earth rotate in the opposite way nor did I slingshot around the sun in one of the Enterprises. But yeah I pulled it off. The week went by in a blur...I'll get back to my regular posts..I think tommorrow..

Xfiles

I really enjoyed this new X-FIles installment. I really hated when it got too convoluted with the alien conspiracy during the series...I really liked when they explored the other supernatural aspects that went on out there..This was really what i wanted from this movie and it delivered.
psychics, stem cells, faith in God, and genetics....awesome

Left 4 Dead

I started playing it....I am sooo freaking scared, this could be how a zombie apocalypse really plays out.

DC vs Mortal Kombat

I have to say this game is pretty awesome.  Being able to fight DC vs DC characters or MK vs MK or MK vs DC is unbelievable. The storyline is great and one line had me laughing my ass off non stop...the joker emulating good ole' Jim Kirk from the Wrath of Khan....Joker:   KAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHNNNNNNNN!!!!!!! as the camera moves over head...Im still playing this but having a lot of fun.

Superman the Movie 2009

Ok first No More Lex Luthor. Let's give Supes a villain he can actually mix it up with. Bizzaro, Braniac, Darksied, hell I'll even take Conduit. But I would think the ultimate would be DOOMSDAY. I really think we need to see Supes full potential. He needs to be really tested. I want to see him not have to hold back and unleash his might.
Sorry I was just thinking how cool  really good Superman movie could be.

McNuggets commercial

Has anyone else seen the brilliant Mickey D's commercial for the mcnuggets? A Brian McKnight type crooner singing in an over stylized "video" about her creeping out on him to get mcnuggets. I do not know why it makes me laugh so hard..Ok I really do know but I cant help it.

you hook this up.

So I hear the government is forcing air subscribers to switch over to new digital air. The only thing is to get this cleaner, crisper upgrade you have to hook up this special box to your lungs. Unless you have the new digital lungs that are already set up. You can get a subsidy for 1 digital air converter but after that your on your own. Enjoy your new digital air on feb 17 2009.

You'll Shoot Your Eye Out.

I can not wait till Lil Ralphie is on my tv. That movie is such a classic. Ralphie in his bunny suit. Going blind with soap pppppoissssonnning. Fighting the hordes of burglars trying to break into the back yard. Santa pushing Ralphie with his boot down the slide. the day dreaming...Scott Farkus and Worm terrorizing the school kids. Ralphie terrorizing them back. the decoder ring, the leg lamp, and my Favorite OOOHHHHH FFFFUUUUDDDGGGGGEEEEE!!!!!
I can't wait

Black Friday

This follows the same thought process I had about a few posts ago with the web suicide. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? The have no respect for life. This poor guy thats working  a minimum wage job at Walmart is dead because the animals in valley stream have to have a 300 dollar tv? I am so disgusted with people. And as the cops are there trying to revive him after being trampled they started to get trampled too..AT that point shoot a warning shot and treat these people like they deserve to be....Caged up and put away. And I hope this guy's family sues Walmart for insufficient security and letting the mass of people get into a frenzy.
I HATE PEOPLE!!!

Too Fat to Fish

Artie Lange is a dark dark soul. I don't know anyone personally as twisted and turned inside out like him. Im really surprised he is still alive and in show business. Yeah, I read his book TOO Fat to Fish and there are many touching subjects in there but OH MY GOD....I can not believe someone can be that successful and at the same time that self destructed. Having said all that, its a really good read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. If your an Artie fan, get this book.

Serious Post.

Now, I read about the poor guy that killed himself on a web cam. This society is just getting out of control.  Anyone else notice how we are becoming more and more like the Romans right before Rome fell? This guy yeah was unbalanced and was unhappy and decided to end his life on camera but the real crime here is that he was crying for help. He wanted someone to stop him. He didn't really want to die. If he did he would have video taped it or just done it privately. The fact that people didn't contact anyone till it was too late just shows how much of a disassociated society we are becoming. I have noticed we are as a whole becoming all about ourselves as individuals and no longer care about others.( not all of us but a majority is growing). Its like everyday we see things happening on the streets, in our buildings, and at work and no one says anything because its an inconvenience to them. I feel bad for this guy, his family, and all the pathetic excuses for people that stood there and did nothing and watched a life slowly ebb away. I hope none of you  get into an accident and people just stand around and do nothing. I feel sorry for you most of all because all of you have no souls.

Left 4 Dead

I have to check out this game. I love Zombies....as you have seen from earlier posts. Now a good zombie game with the gameplay style of 28 days later and Dawn of the dead? I am in.

DOOMSDAY!!!!!!

No, not the Mad max/ 28 days later amalgam movie. But the one creature that killed Superman is on Smallville. I was trying to figure out how they were going to bring him into the continuity of the series. I like it to a point.. They kind have kept the basic creation of the Doomsday creature but with a twist. I am really enjoying this season. HEY DC and whatever company has the film rights to Superman right now...Can we do something like this instead of a 2 hrs bore fest known as Superman Returns?

Heroes

I am becoming really annoyed at Heroes. I know they fired a couple of producers and are hoping Pushing Up Daiseys to fail so they can bring back one of their strongest writers. I was all for trying to give this season some slack but I can not take it anymore. It is getting waaaay too convoluted even for me...I was used to all the crazy crossovers in comics in the 90's.

The Dance of the Dead



I have to say this movie was pretty good. Had the right amount of tension, slow and fast moving zombies, and get this a sci fi club. So for the 1st time since The Lost Boys there is actually a faction in a movie that knows how to deal with the creepy crawllys.  I might have complained a few posts ago about the dearth of zombie movies that sucked but this shut me up. I don't know what I did, but it seems all my comlpaining lateley has been answered on its own.  Dance of the Dead has high school students, a crazy gym teacher and, the right amount of tension and quips. While not anywhere being  zombie masterpiece its just a great popcorn kind of movie to watch.

Thank you

Thank you SIRIUSXM for putting the channels that I like on both satellites now....that made my weekend...I have no reason to complain now....Thank you.

The clone wars.

Please someone stop George Lucas. How many more times do I have to watch stuff that happened between episodes 2 and 3.....Why not do a mini series of shadows of the empire(book that is canon between 5 and 6)...lets revisit some new material. im tired of anakin skywalker.

Zombies

Now I love zombie movies. The George Romero stuff was always great. The remake of Dawn of the Dead was awesome too (didn't expect it to be).  Now I just watched one called Trailer Park Terror.  It was awesomely bad...But bad in the old campy cheesy 80's movies type of way.  The fact that the one zombie fancies himself to be a Rockabilly was just pure genius. If you like zombie movies and camp 80's movies this will work for you.

What happened to Craigslist? You used to be able to find legitimate posts on there for a wide range of things. Now all spam? why people why? This is just like everyday real life..Worlds full of a-holes.

Sirius/XM

I love satellite radio. Yeah I became a mark for it when I got the free radio when Howard Stern gave them out in Union Square.  I had sirius since that day, until......I got my new GM car which only had XM in it. Luckily when my free trial was up the merger became official so I got the best of sirius package for my radio. So I got rid of my sirius receiver to give my car a cleaner look. But I hate the music channels on XM. Definately not as good as sirius'.  Hopefully the merger will eventually merge the best of the music channels too...I miss my Shade 45 and my Raw Dog.

Smackdown Vs Raw 09


Finally a wrestling game that has great tag team wrestling. It still plays like SvR 08 which ireally enjoyed, but know you can make tag teams with finishers.  Not only that but you can create your own finishing moves. I keep trying to make the craziest looking moves and I have been doing that more then actually playing the game mode.  I am so sucked into this game. They got rid of the general manager mode and made a road to wrestlemania mode with wrestler specific storylines. I really am enjoying this game.

Wow, been busy.

Work had been kicking my ass big time. So anyway her we go. I hate, hate, hate the paparazzi. There is absolutely no need for these people. Even at work i have to push through them to do my job.  I really just want to start having a wall of people blocking these no reason to be alive scum sucking leeches.  I do not care about the zit brittney  has, or who the Olson twins are trying to help hide an overdose(allegedly)..oops did I say that. Just get rid of them already. Cops please? someone stop them.

Halloween

I blinked and Halloween was never here....I see Christmas trees, lights, balls, and all this holiday stuff. Where's turkey day? I haven't seen one thing that even acknowledges that there is a holiday after Halloween, which according to the stores I think  ends in the 1st week of October. And Christmas starts on the day after Columbus day. Look there goes Santa now on Nov 2.

Marvel

What the hell did Marvel do to poor spidey with this brand new day crap. I just picked up the vol.1 graphic novel. MJ a superhero or even hinting at it? really? And a villain called negative man? What is he like debbie downer from SNL.  I rather read ultimate spider at this point...man my posts are becoming more and more cynical...I think I need a vacation.

By the way for those who know me, I am dressing like a Viking for halloween...I might post a pic or 2

The Little Rascals

I have to get this. You all might think I am nuts. (How many of you are out there reading this silly blog anyway?. But The Little Rascals are out in a box set, uncut, unedited, with all the stuff that is considered politically incorrect today.  I really can't wait to watch this. I loved the lil rascals growing up. They were just so much fun as a kid..I didn't realize how they were in the middle and end of the great depression and all the ridiculousness that the our gang kids pulled. I can not wait to revisit my youth.

Web Of Shadows

This game is so awesome..You can web swing all over NYC. You can run along the the streets or swing from the rooftops of skyscrapers. Symbiotes, Kingpin, Moon Knight, Black Cat, and Luke Cage to name a few of the Marvel co stars in this fun Spider Man game. Think Grand theft auto with out the R rating. Spidey also banters a lot in this too just like in the comics...Oh yeah  theres either the red or "black" path you can take to continue on in this game. So are you a hero or a villain?

HULK SMASH HULK

I was really impressed with the new hulk movie. Ed Norton played a great roll in it. The hulk looked more realistic this time. There was a villain that actually was fun to watch. No abomintion there...I loved the quick backstory in short clips to explain how the hulk was made without dragging there feet. This marvel production studio is doing a great job with their films so far. Even their animated features.

In your guys honest opinion tell me what you think of these pics I shot.

The Intrepid

I drive by the Intrepid every day. Why didn't it get painted when it got retrofitted? It is sitting back at its slip and it looks the same as it was when it was sent to get repaired. Maybe I am jumping the gun and they are going to paint it before the grand reopening. Hopefully it will be totally repainted before it reopens in a few week.

VROOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!


Summer '09 can not get here fast enough for me.  I just saw the trailer for one of my favorite movie series. Fast and the Furious 4 is now showing its trailer on the net.  It finally brought back the one element that has been missing in the last sequel and 3/4's. Vin Diesel is back and for more then just a cameo. Add to that Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordanna Brewster and I have to say woooooohoooooooo. Fast cars, fast classic cars, sexy woman, and violence. My kind of movie. I  really can't wait for next summer to get here all ready.  Sensing a theme with some of my posts?

The Monster Squad

I love this movie. It was so underrated when it first came out.  A great hybrid of The Lost Boys and The GOONIES.  Just the fact that all of  Universal's monsters are in it is in itself a treat.  The creature from the black lagoon is in this movie..who would have saw this coming. I really don't want to get too much into the plot but the fact the dracula is in this movie as the lead villain is of course natural and frankenstein being portrayed as a sweet heart instead of a monster is a great difference in earlier portrayals. Fave lines.....WOLFMEN HAVE NARDS...IS SHE A VERSION....and MUMMY IN MY CLOSET. Watch this damn movie

LG DARE


I got myself an LG Dare a few months ago. I never thought I would buy myself a phone like this, but I love it.  Who needs an IPHONE being stuck on AT&T when you can have verizon and have a phone very similar to it. I love the touch screen, the virtual qwerty keyboard, and the the quick internet. I almost forgot to mention the awesome 3.2 megapixel camera in the phone. Takes a little getting used to though but once you do its a great piece of tech to have. I kind of feel like I am on STAR TREK with one of there data pads. The one thing I have to complain about that there is no stylus for it and when you do buy one there is no place to put it. I'm not going to go through all the specs on it. If you want to know about it go to verizon.com.

TheDailyShark.com will be happy

Terminator: TSCC, has been picked up for the whole season.  I guess fox realized they will have a hit on there hands if they let it gain an audience. The X-FILES wasn't a phenom series in its first year either.  Congrats Shark you got your wish. And I am really glad too.

Indy and the Crystal Skull


Now, I am not saying this movie is good or bad, but I like the mythology behind it.  I wasn't upset by the inclusion of aliens in the franchise.  There has been theories for many years that our ancient civilizations were contacted by beings from other worlds.  Egyptians, Mayans, Druids, and the Aztecs are all communities that have unexplained technologies and phenomena behind them.  How is it possible that pyramids were built in different places in the world?  The technology it took to make the booby traps in the pyramids. The way mummification was even used by the chinese? Now I don't understand why people are so upset about aliens in Indy when the ARK of the covenant with the spirits of GOD is so believable in the 1st movie? Or how about the holy grail and the Knights Templar.  Is the crystal skull  that more far fetched then those articles in those parts of the series?  I am more upset at the bad CGI thats in the movie. ILM is supposed to be the best special effects company out there, and a lot and I mean a lot of the effects looked like effects. Mythology good......Effects bad...

Why oh why?


Why does Paris Hilton have any kind of career? Why is she still on any sort of tv show? What did I do in this life to deserve this?  I don't get it? I really don't. Yeah I saw her home movie.  I didn't even think she was that good in that.  Did you happen to see how bored she was in that?  Then there was the Simple Life. Where she would go from her cutesy annoying baby doll voice to her husky I sound  like a man voice. One of my friends made me watch the new abortion of a show called My New BFF.  I wanted to kill myself after these losers in life tried to impress Paris. I don't know who was more pathetic, them for being on the show or me for watching it.  I think I might have lost more brain cells watching that show then all the drinking I have done in my life. Please someone give me those precious minutes back that I wasted watching that living knock off Barbie doll and her wannabe Midges.  I really can't stand celebrities with no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

Facebook

I tried. I really did try. I tried to stay away from facebook and myspace. But I could not. I do have to say though I am talking to people that I was friends with in the past and lost touch with. So as I was not trying to join the borg collective I got sucked in.  Facebook really isn't that bad its easy to use and I am talking to people I knew from grammar school, High School, College, and various jobs I worked. Its great being able to catch up with people I haven't seen in years too....I just wish I thought of it 1st.

Criss Angel



I hate Criss Angel. From his stupid Long Island accent to his cockiness that should not even be there. I could pay a whole bunch of stooges to stand around and oooh and aaah at nothing too.  He doesn't even pull his stunts off well.  This is going to be one long continuous shot....then all of a sudden the continuous shot cuts to a crowd member then back to the continuous shot. Guess what? That is no way in hell considered a continuous shot.  If there is any type of cut away, then its not continuous, is it?  I can explain 90% of his tricks. And a lot of his stuff is not even that spectacular. Nope, can't see that mirror over the table. Wait were in the desert making a tank disappear? Hey is that a second curtain set up next to the 1st one? Why did the camera cut back to Criss Angel? And why when it cut back the second curtain went down instead of the 1st? oooooh nothing behind that said curtain. CUE the shills....ooooooohhhhh aaaaaaaahhhhh....amazing. What is amazing is a bad actor/illusionist with a lisp being as popular as he is.

if i hear this one more time....

Hi what are you guys filming? Oh really, thats nice. I didn't realize there need so many trucks and so much equipment to shoot a tv show. At this point I am usually carrying something or loading or unloading equipment when people ask this. I know its a novelty to people but I am really tired of people thinking its ok to interrupt some ones conversation because you need to satisfy your curiousity.  This was just a venting post.   BLAAAAAAAAH.. Back to normal tommorrow.

Marvel Zombies


Who would have known Marvel Comics would have had such a hit on their hand with what was originally just a small story in The Fantastic Four comics. The Marvel Zombies has become so popular that they have their own one shots, mini series, toys, and collectibles being produced. Basically the story is that The Sentry comes back from space in an alternate Marvel universe, bringing a virus that turns whoever it infects into the living dead. Now we all have seen zombie movies and how intense that could be. Now picture the infected with super powers. Pretty much all our favorite heroes and villains get infected. When they are starving they cant control themselves from the hunger and their survival instincts kick in. All they want to do is eat flesh at that point.  When they are full their personalities and minds return and usually the heroes that have a "soul" feel horrible for eating humans, friends and family members. I really do not want to get to far into the stories but if your interested in it pick up some graphic novels or read the wikipedia entries.  Also, in this world  Howard the Duck pops up and there is even a mini series cross over with ASH from the evil dead/army of darkness films and comics.Just imagine ASH's part in this universe thinking the zombies are deadites
These stories have even had fans produce some fan films.

Lego Batman

I think its pretty clear enough already that I have geek tendencies. I am  big time comic book fanboy.  Having over 5000 comics kind of proves that fact. So when I saw that Lego Batman was coming out for video game systems I was pretty stoked.  I picked up Lego Star Wars last year and was hooked.  I really never expected to be but its so funny how the characters in the game mock themselves.  In Lego Batman you have the same premise of having to solve puzzles while trying to defeat Batman's Rogues Gallery. The Danny Elfman score from the 1989 Batman movie gives this game a legit feel to it too. Its just a really fun game to play, and for all you fanboy, geeks, or gamers out there, I say get this game.

Knight Rider GPS


Knight Rider GPS by Mio - Let K.I.T.T. give you directions!
I might be considered a real geek for liking this, but since GPS came out I thought this would be a great idea.  I am so close to buying this especially since my friends say my car could be KITT's offspring.
Here is a pic of my car. What do you guys think?( I ask this question as if anyone is reading this blog or actually cares.)

I AM LEGEND(I know really up to date here)

This is something that has been irking me since I watched I AM LEGEND.  The dark seekers are supposed to be vampires.  Instead of a psychological war that the vampires waged on Neville every night we get a movie of cannibalistic mole people who are all supposedly working on instinct except for the one Leader who organizes them.  How the hell did that happen? Why isn't there more of these smart dark seekers who can set traps on Neville?  It just took away the really what made the book great.  Maybe this prequel that they are making for I AM LEGEND will touch more on the psychology of the book and the way society goes from millions to  just one guy left in nyc.  If you guys have read the book you know the movie didn't even touch on why the title of the book is called I AM LEGEND. I don't want to write about it here just in case someone hasn't read it and now is interested in it. I know movies are not usually as good as the books but come on. Give me just a little something more with this movie.  I know this deviates from my Knight Rider post about not wanting to have to think about what I am watching, but I had my thinking cap on for this one...

Knight Rider

Why is it that people can't just accept mindless fun on tv anymore? Why does a tv show have to be thought provoking? I like to escape my every day life now and then and watch show that i dont have to think to actually watch it.  This incarnation of Knight Rider is exactly what a guy in my age demographic likes.  Fast hot cars. Fast hot women. And a plot that you do not have to be a rocket scientist to figure out. Kitt and Michael get a mission, they go undercover, Mike hooks up with the bad guys, flirts with  Sara who is sexy as hell. Kitt goes fast transforms 2 or 3 times. Saves Mike and shows over....Sorry if i seem so shallow that I just sometimes want a show with some escapism.

Life on Mars

Hey, 
I have been inspired by a family member to start a blog on all things media. I am in the film business and went to school for it too. Not saying  I am an expert by any means but I am tired of all these so called experts just talking out of there proverbial asses.  I was watching Life on Mars tonight. I was afraid to watch it at first but I really was hooked in the 1st ten minutes.  I really wanted to know how they were going to be able to pull off the grittiness of 1973 NYC.  And I have to say they did a really good job. I even found that including the twin towers was amazing. The way it was shot with the film stock, lighting, and filters giving the past a more antique look was a brilliant move. Harvey Keitel being Harvey Keitel is fun to watch too. I am looking foward to seeing if this series continues to be good or will it be a novelty act that wears itself out.
