Game Over: The Life & Adventures Of “EVOLVER”

May 20, 2013

The late 80’s and early 90’s were a great time to be a kid.  Computer generated effects were in their infancy, the Nintendo Entertainment System was at its peak, and many awesomely-bad sci-fi movies were being pumped out like no tomorrow.  My favorite brand of those films were the ones based around video games that tried to kill the players for real.  Just think about it.  What if Nintendo had the cojones to instal crazy military programing into Robbie The Robot?  Gyromite would’ve been a hell of a lot more difficult, I tell ya what.  I’ll do you one better.  What if Q from Star Trek: TNG was responsible for programing and designing the robot?  We’d be in for a world of shit.  EVOLVER is about that very thing.

Bad Ass Ways to Save the World

November 3, 2011

A response to a request for a donation to the Salvation Army written by Jim Cook

So, it’s that time of year, again, when we get to see a dirty, half-drunk Santa dressed up and ringing a bell outside of the local shopping centers in honor of the Salvation Army.  Before you reach into your pocket and pull out that handful of change and pocket lint, take a minute to read this post!  If you are like me, then you want to do what you can to help change the world, but at the same time, you don’t want to help make it suck more.  While the Salvation Army has helped out many many people, they have also turned their backs on many people in need… for instance:  THE ENTIRE GAY COMMUNITY!  That’s right, I said it.  The Salvation Army is anti-homosexuality!  Now, put that change back in your pocket!  I have done my homework and have located lots of other charities where your money would be much more appreciated, such as Habitat For Humanity (which has a Christian background, but discriminates against no one).

Celebrating 20 Years Of Hillarity, Hair-balls, and Hoek

August 11, 2011

That’s right  folks, it was 20 years ago today that Canadian animator/maniac John Kricfalusi warped the minds of 10-12 year olds across the globe.  Never before had toilet humor and outlandish violence been captured so beautifully as it was with the help of an asthma-hound chihuahua and a semi-retarded cat.  But if it wasn’t for the disturbing nonsensical chaos that Ren & Stimpy provided, I probably wouldn’t be the jolly ole Viking that I am today.

“Weird Al” Yankovic:  Perform This Way

I’ve always been more of an old-school Al fan.  Even though his recent albums are funny as all hell, I still don’t dig the bands he’s been parodying.  But this new video makes my nostalgic heart feel like it’s stuck in a closet with Vanna White every time I hear this killer new shit from that lanky madman with the curly hair.  He managed to rock my face off and disturb me for life all in the span of 15 seconds.  Well played good sir.   Well played.

Song Of The Day: Friday The 13th Edish

Alice Cooper:  He’s Back (The Man Behind The Mask)

How could I let a Friday the 13th slip by without listening to this song?  Sure it’s from one of the lesser Friday movies, but you simply can’t ignore how awesomely amazing this tune is.


Thursday Throwbacks: PHOTON

May 12, 2011

Remembering things that half the world forgot is one of my many mutant powers (being able to spot a female nipple in one frame of a movie is another one).  Friends contact me at all hours of the night when they get stuck trying to remember something from their child hood, and 90% of the time I have the answer.  It’s that fiendish 10% that gets under my skin.  Every now and then my brain only shows me a few images of things that I should know instantly.  That REEEALLY pisses me off.  But I’m a very patient man.  I know that if I wait long enough (and drink enough booze) the veil will be lifted and the knowledge will be mine.  Today’s “Throwback” took me over 20 damn years, mostly due to a word that will forever haunt me…..PHOTON.
