Cell Meanings

So, Kevin's cell has 'HOHO' or 'GOGO' in it...but what about mine...

Mine is TOG-BABO

Yeah, ok that makes no sense. I'll shutup.

To the Bat Cave?

I giggled at this sign in Black Mountain, NC:
bat cave

Maryland, My Maryland

I am back from my tour of redneck country. Somebody tell me what I missed. I think a couple of planes went down in Russia. Dang.

Live from Black Moutain, NC

I found a cyber cafe in a mountain town! It is called the Dipilator, $5 for an hour. Well, later.

I may send Kevin more annoying text messages... :P

Fun with Bots II

I got bored and decided to mess with the SmarterChild bot...
wittybastad (10:03:36 PM): do you masturbate?
SmarterChild (10:03:37 PM): That's something that humans do, not computers...
wittybastad (10:03:45 PM): why do humans masturbate?
SmarterChild (10:03:45 PM): Hmm... You know, I'm not quite sure anymore.


I'll leave it at that.

Nevermind

No guest bloggers. I am leaving tomorrow and I will be gone like all next week. I need to get out of Maryland. So, just enjoy the posts that are currently up, or think of new ways to use a stale blog, just like these ways to use flat sodas.

Old people & Electronics!

My mom can't work her own cell phone. Old people make me laugh.

Flip flopping Dick!

Give the vice president a few minutes, and he'll flip a flop.

First, the war isn't sensitive and that it shouldn't be, then it is sensitive and that is should be.

Which is it, Dickie?

Report Suspicious Activity!

Driving around DC & Baltimore, I-95, 495, 695, and even out on I-70 towards Frederick, I keep seeing electrical signs over the road that tell me to "Report Suspicious Activity", as if I'm supposed to notice something along the road...well I guess I would be able to notice a flat-bed truck loaded with Saudis Iraqis, armed with AK-47s, but it all seems a little odd to me. Report supicious activity, huh? People should be concentrated on driving, but whatever.

Open Water

This is a pretty simple movie. A couple goes on vacation to some carribean island, goes scuba diving, and get's left behind, many miles from land, in shark and jellyfish infested waters. It's a low budget movie, that was shot on video and there's not many actors. So in that sense, it's kinda like BLAIR WITCH meets JAWS. Instead of getting lost in the woods and dropping the map, they're lost in the open ocean and they dropped their knife. It's not overly graphic, but it is very suspensful. This needs to be seen on the big screen.

Call Hollywood

I just got a totally random idea for a movie: A guy has to blog every hour, on the hour, or else....*drumrole* A BOMB WILL EXPLODE!!!!1

It's never been done, not even on a bus, or by Keanu Reeves! TOTALLY ORIGINAL!

The Banal Adventures of Katie

I think somebody is off her meds...

I'm not Rick James anymore, bitch!

Rick James passed away.

Rest in peace.

The Truth Comes Out

In a speech at the signing ceremony for the $417 billion defense spending bill, Bush let his real intentions known.
"They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we." More...


To watch the video, head over to Oliver's.

Harold and Kumar go to White Castle

OMFG, this is one of the funniest movies of the year. It's about two guys in their early 20s who insist on getting some burgers at White Castle one night. One thing leads to another, and another, and another, and they eventually get their burgers, but they have to put up with a lot of shit to get them. It's so touching.

Okay, no it isn't, it's pretty vulgar (is that an oxy moron?) but I won't say anything more, you'll have to see it, except the following three words:

Neil Patrick Harris.

The Manchurian Candidate

Never saw the original, but I hear it's just the same, except it takes place during the Korean war, and not Desert Storm, and that 'Manchurian' applies to a country, not a corporation. I don't understand why they had to remake this film, when they could have re-released the original, but Jonathan Demme does a pretty decent job with it. Denzel Washington. Meryl Streep, and Liev Schrieber all give great performances and this movie keeps you keep guessing (unless you've seen the original). Check this one out.

One thing though, on election days, kids are not in school.

The Village

This is easily M. Night Shyamalan's worst film. The story is okay, but the plot is bad, the writing is attrocious, and the acting is just silly. How in the hell can Joaquin Phoenix play a teen? Why is William Hurt's character so stupid? Why the hell is Sigourney Weaver even in this? Her role is too small.

So let's rank M. Night's movies.

1. The Sixth Sense
2. Unbreakable
3. Signs
4. The Village

Gee golly, I think that's in chronological order. I think it's time to try a new genre, M. Night. You're not Hitchcock.

The Bourne Supremacy

Before I saw this, I would have told you that Matt Damon's best role was either The Talented Mr. Ripley, or Good Will Hunting, but he tops those with his Jason Bourne character. The Bourne Supremacy is just as a good as The Bourne Identity if not better. If you fall asleep, then you most likely do not have a pulse.

Also, Brian Cox is in everything now. Move over Kevin Bacon, it's 3 degrees of Brian Cox.

I, Robot

I saw "I, Robot" like a week ago, and I am just now posting about it. Guess that says how it is right there. No, it doesn't suck, but I'm dissappointed. It started out with a pretty realistic depiction of a possible 2035, the NS4 robots weren't ultra-advanced, but then when they introduced NS5 model, with those having the capabilities to experience emotion, the movie just went downhill. And further more, why in the hell does Will Smith almost always play a cop?

The following movies Will Smith plays a cop in:
Bad Boys
Men in Black
Men in Black II
Bad Boys II
I, Robot

And he plays a Soldier in Independence Day and Wild Wild West. Let's see another Ali, Will.

So should you see I, Robot? Sure, there's some cool cars and the parking garages for those cars are pretty sweet. Yes, I just told you to see a movie about robots because it has cars in it.
