Ever encounter something so awesome that your immediate reaction is to snicker and then say "Dude, that was *bleepin'* awesome!" (even if "dude" isn't part of your regular vocabulary)? Well, this is the place to share it. Learn more about Awesomeness
Ooooh, Howard the Duck...an odd choice for Marvel to make for it's first comic to big screen adaption and after it hit the theater like a rotten egg in the mid 80's, I'm surprised that they made it to 99 with X Men. Even odder was George Lucas as one of the creators of the movie chose this for a movie. Howard the Duck was a weird 70's comic about a duck … more
Hasbro has taken a lot of heat from fanboys and collectors of Star Wars figures over the last few years. A lot of it is justified considering the enormous amount of repacks, repaints, and miniscule selections to choose from. Basically if you have enough Anakin and Obi-Wan figures in your collection, there hasn't been much for you to buy lately. With the 2013 Saga Legends line, … more
I opened my first-ever email account back in 2000 or 2001. Believe it or not, I still have the thing up and running. I get my Lunch updates there. It was a Yahoo! account, and the email address was email@example.com. Later, I opened two more Yahoo! accounts, one for fun and another for business. Come the next few months, I'll be closing down the two that remain open. … more
BaronSamedi3 posted a Quick Tip about The Simpsons.
This show is dead. It needs to go. I don't care how good the first eight seasons were anymore. The Simpsons has aired FAR more bad episodes than good ones now, and it's time Matt Groening just euthanized the fucking thing and put it out of its misery, and bring us back from the delusion that it's still any good.
BaronSamedi3 posted a Quick Tip about Yelp.
This site doesn't cut it for me. Yeah, the list of restaurants and events is nice, but the reviews too often lack detail and are frequently too grounded in the "it's good because it's good" or "it sucks because it sucks" way of reviewing. I can rarely find out any real details of what I'm trying to learn about.

The Hooters girls look good and the food is decent, though I think the wings are a tad too greasy for me to handle. Hooters is an okay place to dine out, though while Titled Kilt is a little more expensive, you get much better food and hotter ladies serving you.
This isn't a review. It's more like a rant, a rant with some positive vibes in it. What am I ranting about? Geeks, specifically geek girls, and how they are treated. Here we go. Geek girls are ladies who are just like their male counterparts with the obvious anatomical differences. You see these young (and old) … more
Seinfeld is famously The Show About Nothing. Now, what that means to me is that the characters are simply existing. We know very little about just who they are, what they do, and what they want. In the grand scheme of things, there's nothing, and so to me, that's why Seinfeld is The Show About Nothing. Now, on the day to day basis, Seinfeld being about nothing was nothing more … more
Buffalo wings may be one of the most famous and beloved bar foods in the United States, but when one goes in and orders up a plate of these simple little delicacies, are they really getting buffalo wings? In most instances, they're not. Buffalo wings were invented in the city of Buffalo, New York, in 1964 at the Anchor Bar by Teressa and Frank Bellissimo. The story of just how they came about tends … more
The Justice League animated series had a fantastic story arc called “The Justice Lords” as far as I could remember. Alternate universes and multi-verses have always been a part of comic book stories. It is always interesting to see just how far the writing can go creatively when it came to creating one of this alternate universe. Directors Sam Liu and Lauren Montgomery intend to do just … more
In April of this year I managed to find a free weekend that allowed me to attend CyPhaCon in Lake Charles, LA. Although I am from the area, this was my first time to ever attend CyPhaCon. This was their third year of existence, and they have managed to solidify themselves as the top anime/pop culture convention in southwest Louisiana. Their guest of honor this … more
If I could give this movie more than a +5 rating I would. It's one of those movies you must see. Energetic, funny, genius, you cannot help but fall in love with this film. I recommend it to everyone. I mean it.
Ryan Gosling in this film is so perfect. He barely says a word yet all the emotions that come from him are awesome. Such a good, tense movie. Carey Mulligan was in it, who I HATE, but not even she could ruin this movie. There isn't a lot of violence but the violence they show is pretty grim And on a more serious note....Ryan Gosling is so fucking hot.
It took time for me to get into The Office. Years, in fact. I had heard all the hype about how great it was ever since it first began airing in 2005, and I had tried to take in the occasional episode. But the show's approach wasn't something I was accustomed to seeing, and it took a long time for me to understand just what creators Ricky Gervais (creator of the original British version) and Stephen … more
RabidChihuahua posted a Quick Tip about Seinfeld.
For many, many years, I never really understood the gargantuan hype surrounding Seinfeld. I don't think it's a terrible show, but I find most of the show to be lukewarm in its humor. With that said, there were occasional moments of hilarity, such as this. On a sidenote, Jason Alexander may be most famous as … more
The first thing I noticed about this product was the box it came in. It appears almost like wood and is a decorative item that you would want to keep. The pieces themselves are exquisite giving an appearance of being over a hundred years old. They are very elegant and the cups themselves have very comfortable handles and are exactly the right size and weight that one would look for. One would be hard … more
The Nashville Predators have at least one thing no other team can claim: Their head coach, Barry Trotz, is currently the longest-tenured head coach in the NHL. He was hired in 1997, just a couple of weeks after the Buffalo Sabres hired their longtime coach Lindy Ruff, who was fired in February. That means Trotz was hired long before the team began play in 1998 and has been with the Preds since the … more
With the exceptions of the lockouts, what we have here is the most public of the NHL's many embarrassments. It comes off as nothing but a desperate ploy for attention. Here's what happened: In 1992 there was this awesome movie called The Mighty Ducks that came out. Everybody loved it. Today, its still highly regarded as, at the very least, a classic of sports movies. It was … more
