Wretro Ice cube tray wednesday!

Space Invaders!

That controller brings back memories.  And killing space invaders via warm liquid is somehow fitting.  True story, my mom rolled Space Invaders back in the day.  Oh yeah, mother's day gift here I come!

as sf'd from my favorite blog.

Wacky Ice Cube Tray Wednesday!

One word: Carbonite .

I'll pause there and let the awesome soak in.

Honestly, can this be topped?  Should I stop right here and end on a high note?  No and No!

Sadly, all links point to and a No Sale.  :(   But you can always dream.

USB Tuesday

As fascinating as the ice cube trays are.  The various USB drive and USB based items out there is even more fascinating to me.  We may double dip on this one.

We will start with this adorable/cool retro robot 4gb USB drive.

Can't you picture him saying, "Take me to your leader." in a robotic voice?

Suck 16, and a daring piece

Third round of Mock Madness '09 is up now.

Daring.  People will hate this piece but I am ok with that.  If it makes even one person think about the issue, then I win.

I am building some momentum here.  The next debate is should I start up the Daily Disambiguation again.   I like the daily aspect, and as you can see I've got a couple of new, small, weekly bits.  The key over at 3sqb is to get back on track with SHOF.  And to come up with a good weekly baseball bit.

Honestly, after the big hit I got from With Leather, and the momentum I fell I'm developing I have to at this point, call myself a blogger.  Not a good one, but one anyway.

Geek Holiday: Pi Day

Happy Pi Day!  If you need help with this, please refer to a calendar, or go here.

Where to begin?  I know!  Horrible pun based humor!


There are many contenders, but only one can the official t-shirt of Pi Day.

What better way to commemorate this holy day than with a Pi Chart ?

I know, I know, this is more along the lines of what you were expecting to see.

Go eat some pie today, that is after all the whole point!  It's a day not just for geeks, but for everyone!  Who does not like pie?!?!?

Wicked Cool Ice Cube Tray Wednesday

Nothing like a properly layered pun!


It is after all the Wednesday before Pi-day!  And if you don't know what Pi-day is why are you reading this blog anyway?

Sadly I doubt my geeky dreams of having the entire Greek alphabet available in ice-cube form will ever happen.  Unless someone buys me a Plastic molding machine and the appropriate software from which my mad dreams can come to pass.

Who's On First......Shakespeare.

 I ran across this Saturday and died.  Verily I was slain via means of laughter.  Yeah I suck at this, thank god they don't.

Baseball season starts soon, and I'm desperate enough for fantasy baseball that I am going to sign up for a league I really shouldn't.

Not the ice she's looking for.

Dude, all you need to do is slap an empty Ring Pop ring on that!!  Your woman will be blinging like nobody else!

Mock Madness 2009

Please go visit my Mock Madness 2009 tournament over at Third String Quarter Back.

We are trying to figure out, who is the most hated person in sports.

Watchmen Review

Read the comic first.  The movie did not suck.  I thought it would.  It was however not awesome.  It was literally and figuratively a journey into self pleasure for die-hard comic book geeks.  The movie is the Sex and Violence Cliff Notes of the Comic.  the comic is that bloody and that sexual, but there is more to it than what you get in the film, and that depth will create many misconceptions about the book.  The film will also move back the argument that Graphic Novels are a form of literature.  An argument that the comic form of Watchmen makes so well.  If you read the book first you will remember the depth and all that is not shown, but if you don't you will see this as the worst pulp crap that comic books have to offer.

Let's do a blog-gag run down to make sure sure the wrong people don't see this movie.
Don't see this movie:
If you are under 17.  Sex and violence that would make Tarantino blush.

If you have issues with the song Smack my Bitch up.  This movie does not just smack her up, they kick her up, rape her up, and shoot her pregnant ass up.  These are used better in the comic as character/plot devices. Again they are points made in comic form that there is not enough time to make in the movie.

If you don't want to see a giant fluorescent blue schlong.  'Nuff said.

If you liked Frost/Nixon.  The Nixon in this movie is annoying and horribly acted.

If you hated Christian Bale's "Batman Voice" from The Dark Knight.  Rosarch does a spot-on impersonation of this, and he narrates most of the movie.

If you saw the preview and thought "What is that!?!?!  That looks cool!"  It is, but it isn't.  The previews are misleading.  I saw several people in the crowd under 17, and one or two under 13.  Not for kids or the feint of heart.

This movie is not a blockbuster, it was made for geeks, and most geeks will love it.  I liked it, but they made it for people just like me.  It was hard for me to not like it.  In fact my issues with it are more based upon my waining interest in Movies in general.  Movies and America's obsession with them are starting to bother me.  The format has severe limitations and I feel like I am shouting into a hurricane whenever I mention them.  It's worth the $10 IF you have read the comic.  If you have not read it, do not bother, unless you like violent sexual movies.
