Thursday Throwbacks: 10/14/2010

While fighting the tail-end of a rockin’ cold, I was sitting at work last night monitoring one of my clients when an idea hit me.  The dude was sitting in bed having random episodes of harsh chomping at the open air, followed by a few quick seconds of gnawing on his bottom lip.  He looked like a human piranha in mid feeding-frenzy.  I let that thought percolate in my noodle for the duration of my shift.  It wasn’t until my drive home that the perfect cartoon for today made sense.  Some douche-fuck in a white sedan swerved onto my side of the road, nearly careening head-on into my mighty Ford Focus.  A vision of shark fins popping out of the concrete, chasing that fuck down like the can of sardines he/she is, had me in great spirits throughout the rest of my drive.  Too bad the only way I’ll get to see that happen is by watching today’s cartoon, Street Sharks.

Mother Nature is a harsh mistress.  Her storms can send houses flying through the air, her earthquakes cause the tallest of buildings to crumble into dust, and her bitter cold seasons have a way of sending more than just retired folk racing for the equator.  Even if you’re a scientist trying to figure out a way to grow trees in the desert, like nature enthusiast/scientist Alec Holland was trying to do, that evil tree-bitch will totally ruin your day.  In Holland’s case, she sent her minions to his swamp-lab to destroy stuff (mostly glass beakers with strange science liquids in them).  Some of the liquids splashed onto him turning him into a massive pile of moss and leaves, hell-bent on protecting that which he became…a mighty Swamp Thing.

Protect the weak, defenseless, helpless, and fight for the general welfare of all.  Basic rules to live by when you’re a chivalrous fuck.  Any man of stout heart should have no trouble abiding by these tenants, yet some fumble constantly.  It’s not their fault; no sir.  Damsels in distress cause more bullshit in the life of a knight than there is bacon on a Wendy’s Baconator. Today’s cartoon will prove that very thing. Read the rest of this entry »

Time travel.  The one subject that tickles my taint more than mythology.  Every time I watch a film/show where people (or a person) tear the fabric of space a new one, my mind becomes a whirling dervish of zany ideas.  Like pantsing Abe Lincoln right before he’s shot, or (in my case) going back to California in the hay-day of metal so you can hit up every good show that has ever happened.  The possibilities are endless!

As I sit in my room, gazing out my rain splattered windows, it occurred to me that not everybody enjoys days like this.  Because I’m such a fantastic fellow and get off on making the ladies happy, I feel it’s my duty to bring colorful wonder into their lives on such a dreary day.  Dig out those rainbow thigh-highs from the bottom of your closets, girls.  Here comes Rainbow Brite.

“Form feet and legs!  Form arms and body!  And I’ll form, THE HEAD!”

Man, it must suck to live in a far off galaxy.  No matter what planet you live on, you’re on constant alert for strange monsters, swarms of space crafts, and evil alien warlords that are hell bent on conquering every inch of the universe. King Zarkon (one of the rulers of the Drule Empire) happens to be one of those warlords.  But in order for him to accomplish the feat that villains throughout space have been working on since the beginning of time, Zarkon must work on a few things.  First, he needs to gather a mighty army (a little old school flyering should take care of that).  Second, Zarkon must train his collection of ghastly robeasts so they’re in peak physical condition.  Lastly, the evil prick has to bust through the one robotic wall that stands between him and total domination….Voltron: Defender of the Universe.

In a world of flying cars, digital dogs, and cyber security guards, there’s bound to be a few rogue robots.  Dr. Light, that heart of gold scientist who paved the road to hell with good intentions, is in a bit of a bind.  His old high school lab partner, Dr. Wily, has stolen a few of Light’s non-union droids and reprogrammed them for destruction.  Who can protect us from a robot with scissors on his head, another that hurls Mario bombs at us, one that creates electricity balls of death, and an android version of The Hulk?  Well have no worries folks, Dr. Light has crafted us a hero.  He’s the ultimate boy in blue, with an arm cannon that can “borrow” other robot’s weapons.  They call him Mega Man.  Let’s watch some of his adventures.
