Sunshine ??

me and the boys just watched a movie called Sunshine. it is a movie that came out last year and stars killian murphy, and chris evans. now i wasnt sure what to think of this movie because it was glens movie of the year last year. but i am happy to say it was one of the best sci fi movies in 5 years maybe more. to me the only down side was if you have seen alot of scifi movies this one was pretty predicable. but at the same time entertaining enough to let you forget that point. and the soundtrack to this film was great i dont know who did it but i really enjoyed it. so yea check this movie out.

is cold out in space Travis?

The Love Guru

So I saw The Love Guru last night, starring Mike Myers. I knew going into the movie that it was going to be bad, but I've enjoyed past Mike Myers movies such as the Austin Powers trilogy and the first Wayne's World so I decided to give it a chance. The movie ended up being as bad as I expected. There were a few laughs that were achieved through very crude humor, but for the most part the movie was horribly written, and the acting was even worse. Justin Timberlake actually ended up being the funniest character in the film playing a French Canadien goalie for the L.A. Kings who happened to be a Celine Dion super fan (which makes for some of the better laughs in the movie.) In all I would say if you are a fan of smart comedies then The Love Guru isn't for you, and even if you like dumb comedies, you might still dislike it. My recommendation...wait until it plays on tv.

The Blankening

New Episode Up. We talk about The Happening, Get Smart, Carbon Footprints, Vampires and Robot Owls.

what condiment are you

Janikowski all time leader?

yes its true if he is able to get 56 more pionts he becomes the raiders all time scoring leader. now thats a scary thought. who would have thought he would still be on the team. Sea Bass. well tune this season to watch him do it.

Go Raiders

Lars and the real girl ??

so this movie was given to my by my sister for my birthday. i can only wonder if she was trying to say something. the story is about a man named lars who lives in his brothers garage. hes a complete loner ,so he orders a sex doll that he believes is alive. yea. i usually dont like movies where the main character has some kind of mental illness. i e Punch drunk love, i am sam, dont say a word. but this was written well enough and ryan gousline does a good job making it not awkward. so check check check it out whats whats whats it all about.

your sex doll Travis?

I actually watched this movie independently of Travis. I really liked this movie. Though he is not mentally retarded like all the other movies Travis mentioned, he just has a mental breakdown. I thought Ryan Gosling did a great job as well. Also, Travis. I think your sister is trying to tell you something.

The Cap Question

So last week when we talked about the Hulk I asked if anybody saw where captain america is in the this movie since the Director himself said he was. Well as it turns out this is not true.

There was a scene filmed where the Bruce Banner is trying to kill himself in antartica (or something like that, needless to say there are glaciers), but the Hulk comes to life and stops him before he does. The Hulk stomps around and dislodges some ice, and apparently Captain America is in the ice somewhere, and the Hulk dislodges him.

From what I heard it's not really surprising that this scene was cut, because it seemed more just to stick Captain America in there, and not because it fit with the story line, but appranlty this is the answer to the Cap question. Very Cloverfield-esque if you ask me.

Funny Games

Funny Games was a very interesting movie to watch. It seems at first like it will be just a typical horror movie, but the killers in the movie are so strange that it makes them very comical, if not a little likeable. The movie contains some elements that are not usually present in American cinema such as characters talking directly to the camera, and music that doesn't fit the scene and serves to sort of jar the viewer. The directer normally makes foreign films and this was his first American film. Overall I thought the movie was pretty good, the first half of the movie was great, but the second half was a little dull. I did like the ending though so I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys movies that don't fit the normal formula that Hollywood so often uses.

The Bucket List ??

almost wanted to give this movie three ??? but i could do it. Jack nicholas was pretty funny for a old senile person. so anyways this movie is the tale of two strangers that meet in a hospital and find out they only have six months to live to they make a list of things to do before the kick the bucket. i was pretty happy with the ending too because it wasnt super predictable. so yea i would suggest this movie.

say what you need to say Travis?

What Glen's Listening too

So everyone else has been posting about music lately so I thought I'd post some of the stuff I've been listening too.
Ratatat - LP3
Instrumental electronic dance rock. Some of the best musicians you'll ever here. Kind of slow down-tempo stuff with tons of crazy instrumentation. I've been waiting for this album for a long time. Their previous Album Classics was amazing, and this album is almost as good in my opinion. It's hard to tell you who they sound like, because they really don't really sound like anyone else. They are truly an original band.The Envy Corps - Dwell
Mr Devin Askounis recomended this band to me. I really didn't care for them at first, but this CD is a real grower. So if you don't like them at first don't give up on them. I've really gotten into it. Envy Corps is a indie rock band that has no problem switching from up-tempo to down-tempo, and is great a coming up with with really catchy songs. For fans of bands like Dear and the Headlights, Coldplay, Dave Matthews Band, Moneen.
MC Chris - mc chris is dead
I've been listening to MC Chris for a long time now. This is his fifth album. MC Chris has been called a nerd rapper. He has an extremely high voice, and raps extremely fast. While his voice can be off putting to some, if you can get past it, you can find some great music. He raps about all the normal hip-hop stuff, girls drugs and boose, but also raps about stuff like video games, reese's pieces and nerd girls. I found this album to be a lot better than his previous effort (Dungeon Master Of Ceremonies), but not as good as his first couple albums (Knowing is Half the Hassle and Life's a Bitch and I'm Her Pimp). For fans of MC Lars and any adult swim show (he did the voice of Hesh from Sealab and MC peepants from Aqua Teen).

The Random Question Answer

So yeah if you haven't heard or listened to the podcast(Worst Episode Ever) Mr. Glen said I would say my answer to the random topic. The topic was favorite character on The Simpsons. My answer is Chief Wiggum. He is hilarious I've seen every episode of the simpsons and he is pritty much the only one who can make me laugh all the time. My favorite moment from the chief is when he was trying to make new laws to arrested people in Springfield and so Homer was kicking a can around and so Wiggum says if he kicks that can more then 5 times we are going to arrest him. So long story short Homer kicks the can 5 times and and the Chief arrest him and he says "OK Kicky Mantle" your going to the big house.

Ace Enders new CD

Thanks to Glen Walker aka Neworld told me about this CD that came out in the pasted week or so. I listened too it the other day and I got to say I like it a lot which is not surprising cause Ace Enders was in Early November and I liked Early November when they were a band. So if you like Early November or Ace I would say get the CD or you can go to to download the CD for free.

New Lil Wayne CD

So yeah I'm not a huge rap or hip hop guy but for some reason everyone in Maryland is loving this guy. So i decided to download Lil Wayne 's CD the carter 3 to see why everyone is loving this guy. So i got to say its not bad there's about 22 songs and about half the CD is produced by Kanya West, and I'm a big fan of his work and I'm a little byes towards my thoughts on the CD. I give an A- cause of Kanya West and also Lil Wayne's lyrics are good and the beats are good as well.


So I've been trying to get blank of the week on iTunes for quite a  while now, and after persistent efforts we are up and running. If you click here it will take you directly to our page in the iTunes store. We are now searchable and everything so you can do it that way as well. We still need to put up some artwork, but besides that it's totally ready to go. 

I'm going to be very on top of things about getting the podcasts up there now. So if you choose to subscribe, you won't be out of the loop.

Stardate: Year of the Tiger

So Futurama is pretty much favorite show of all time(spoiler). And when I heard they were making these new movies I was really excited, but after watching the first one (Benders Big Score) I was more than a little dissapointed. All the characters and animation seemed the same, but the writing just wasn't there. It seemed like they trying to do everything in one movie, and it really didn't work.

This movie, the second in the series, works a lot better than the previous effort. There were far more laughs than the previous movie. It felt more like a continuation of the series. It felt like a long episode just like the first movie did, but this time it fit in continuity better (whereas BBS could have been any where in the series). None of the jokes felt forced, it felt more organic and more just like Futurama. The addition of David Cross to this DVD was amazing. If you listen to the show you probably heard me say that David Cross is my favorite Comedian, and he was such a great addition to this movie, he actually had a lot of the best lines of the movie.

Anybody on the fence about these DVD's should just skip the first one and go straight to this one.

New Coldplay album

So I decided to listen to the new Coldplay album the other day, (you know how I know your gay, you listen to Coldplay), there I already said the joke so now it won't be funny if you use it on me, anyways I really like the new single so I decided to give the album a listen. After my first listen I would have to say this is a really average if not below average album. For a band that everyone seems to rave about I really didn't see what all the buzz was about. Most of the songs on the album sound just like other songs on the album, there's nothing really new or innovative about the album, and I really only like 2 or 3 songs. I'm going to give it a couple more listens because sometimes albums grow on me after I listen to them more, but right now I'm fairly dissapointed in it.

Worst. Episode. EVER!

This is the first episode update. Our new episode is up over at the myspace page. It's called Worst Episode Ever, and it features talk of the Hulk, Simpsons, The new blog, Sci-Fi and Bukakee. Check it out now.

hatchet movie review

hello movie fans its me travis?

in this blog i will review movies i have just seen. i will have a rating system. one ? means the movie is pretty bad. two ? mean the movie is ok, and three ? means see it. with that.

Hatchet ??

yes, two ?. i was first turned on to this movie when i met kane hodder at a local comic convention. he said it was one of the best movies he had worked on. that's saying something from the guy who played jason from the friday the 13th movies 4 times. he has also appeared in numerous other horror movies. well my friend glen was with me and he said that the movie sucked, but i also know glen doesn't love the horror movies likes i do. so. hatchet is the tale of victor crowley and born disfigured man. who is made fun of and terrorized. does this sound like friday the 13th anyone. then gets killed in accident. wow does this really sound like friday the 13th. so some years after the event a bunch of college kids go on a haunted swamp tour and get more then they bargained for. this movie is funny, super gory, and about half of the actors can act. so if you are a fan of the slasher genre you will like this one. i will also say kane hodder as victors dad i was very surprised on how well he did.

make america strong, watch horror movies
your friend travis?
