"Walmart worker trampled to death by assholes seeking a deal!" An off-topic commentary

This is why I do not participate in Black Friday shopping. Lining up at 9p.m. Thanksgiving night to get a DVD player for $30 and Incerdible Hulk for $9 alone, is annoying to me, but then causing a surge of other idiots to cram into a doorway, knocking over someone and trampling them to death to get those "deals", is beyond even words. I hope not only the assholes who killed this man, but the morons who sat around and bitched that they were in line since Thursday and had to leave after someone was killed, have a nice long life to think over their behavior and realize a cheap 50" plasma screen tv isn't worth killing people in a mad rush just to be told they don't have any more of that item.
Maybe they can then try killing whoever was the lucky 'tard to get the ticket for that item?

And to think that man who got killed by these vermin just spent the night before giving thanks for living in this country with his family and friends only to be killed the next morning by people who had nothing better to do but get in line at 9 p.m. the night before. In my opinion, this whole Black Friday thing gets more and more out of hand every year. Stores open earlier, close later, have bigger "deals" on more items with lower quantities and people fight over these things year after year. The stores may make a profit in the end, but what does it say about our society wherein we will go fight over a television, Gameboy or Cabbage Patch Kid? To me, it says no wonder people hate us the world over.

In some countries I could see swarming to get at a chopper full of supplies being delivered to a war/famine covered region. I could even understand scrambling to get out of a doorway if a building is on fire and there is only one exit. But over a vacuum, bag of cherries, or an Ipod? No.

Whoever was at this store and caused this to happen (customers) and whoever was there and did nothing to help anyone who got hurt, and whoever was there and began to complain they were there all night and wanted to shop, should at the very least be ashamed of themselves until the end of their miserable lives.

I never have, nor will I ever participate in a ritual I find stupid and barbaric, as I find Black Friday. Here's an FYI to those involved...the manufacturer's didn't make one of every item, there is plenty out there for you for the remaining 364 days of the year, and if killing someone over a "deal" is worth it to you, well then, you are a sad animal indeed.

Fired Up!

Oh...look...what seems like Bring It On 40. However, it isn't. It's Fired Up!

It's what you get greeted with when you are dragged to see Twilight this weekend. It's about two idiots in High School/College (?) who hit on some girl and then somehow go to cheer camp. Where one falls in love with girl mentioned above and the other falls for the cheer camp teacher (Molly Simms). Hilarity does or doesn't ensue (it doesn't).

Seriously, it looks terrible and awful all at once.

Hi! This isn't funny!

I remember the olden days, the days of yore, if you will. Back when the Wayans weren't just the funniest black family, but the funniest family period. Back in the days of:

Or this:

Yet now we get this:

What the hell is this? It isn't funny, it's horrible. There wasn't one second that I found funny. Not one!

I know everyone will be on the edge of their seats awaiting the new Roland Emmerich film. And after the astounding awesomeness that was The Day After Tomorrow and 10,000 B.C., who can blame them. I am, of course, being incredibly sarcastic, because Roland Emmerich movies suck. They didn't always suck, or maybe they did and I just forgot?

I remember liking Stargate...maybe if I watch it again, I might change my mind. I didn't mind Independence Day at the time, but when I watch it now it really kind of sucks.

What is the worst thing about this trailer? I can't really decide. It might be that John Cusack, Amanda Peet and Chiwitel Ejiofor agreed to it. It could be that they ask you to Google 2012 in order to get some information. I don't know. I am pretty sure that the main reason it sucks is because I know what to expect. Bad story and bad effects.

I know all about the Mayan end-of-days they say will come in 2012. I've read books before and I don't need Roland Emmerich to lay it out for me in 120+ minutes of retardation...thank you

Pink Panther 2

I'm sorry, what is happening here? What? This isn't funny, is it? It can't be!
It looks like Steve Martin decided to make another Pink Panther movie and sully the memory of Peter Sellers...this is just terrible.

Looks like we are still using the 'Hamburger' bit. We get it, he's French and can't say hamburger. And it would appear that the old diamond is once again hilarity must ensue.*

*clearly, it doesn't.


This movie has it all:
Baz Luhrman
Hugh Jackman
and Australia

Can't wait to see it!

Fallout 3 Obsession Continues!

Yeah, my obsession with this game is still going on. I can't explain it! I'll sit in front of the television for about an entire day playing it. Here is some gameplay in the form a some video put up on YouTube:
If you dial the Vault-Tec number there is a message that plays...I love that shit!

The video is a little stale and it doesn't really give you the experience of how fun the game is. It's almost as good as Bio Shock...almost.

You play whoever you name your character (mine is a male named Barnaby. Why Barnaby? Why not?) and you are the son of James, a scientist in Vault 101. The game begins with you being born, where you choose the name and sex of your character and you grow up through the years until you are around 20 something. One day your father escapes the Vault and takes off into the Wasteland and the Overseer of the vault decides that he has to find you, for some reason. So you escape as well...into the wild blue Wasteland.

Now you are out all by yourself gathering up side missions and following the main mission of finding your father. And having an absolute blast while doing so. I'm not sure if it is the post-Apocalyptic remains of civilization or the mixture of shooter and adverture game that so turns me on, but I love it. The reason I am not the best at some of these games is that I like to kill off everything that is on the level...all of them. I can do that here. I can clear a building and take everything, or almost everything I can get my hands on. So far there have not been any of those typical moments where a monster pops out to kill you from a glass window you just passed; I keep expecting it, but so far, nothing. And I really like that there hasn't been any of that. I like the freedom of running around stealing things and finding ammo and books and seeing all the detail that was put into something.

I've never been a huge fan of RPG's, because I always think about Final Fantasy or something akin to that, but this game has turned me. Keep it up Bethesda!

True Blood Episode 10 "I Don't Wanna Know"/11

So we learned a few things this past week on True Blood...mainly that Sam Trammell keeps getting hotter...but I digress.

Check out last week's episode below and below that, next week's episode, "To Love is to Bury"

Smoldering hot is right!
