Good morning and what can I tell ya….did I already tell you that I don’t want to do a lot of news posting? I have to give a quick shout out to my friend Shannon. She pointed out to me that I happened to mention that fact once or twice this week. Oopsy! Didn’t mean to repeat myself so soon, or at all for that matter. Thanks Shanny! I totally didn’t even realize I had done it.
I can and will tell you that today is the two month anniversary of Reel Goddess. That’s pretty cool. The time has gone by pretty quickly I must say. Am I going to remind you every month? Probably not. Because I’ll probably forget. But when it gets to the 2 year 7 month mark, I’ll be sure to say it’s the 31 month anniversary. You know, like people do with babies. That’s always bugged me, but that’s for another time.
Let’s get on with it shall we?
I’ve got two things in the Art category for you today. I love Disney. And I love Disney Princesses. Not to the point where my house is decorated with them or anything, but I appreciate them. I love my Tinkerbell jacket I picked up at Disneyland a couple of years ago though. Come to think of it, that’s pretty much all I own aside from the films. Anyway, I really love it when artists do an alternative take on the Princesses. That’s exactly what we have here. The first is a take on the girls representing the 7 Deadly Sins. I’ve included an image for an example, but you should really head over to the artist’s site to see the rest.
Pretty cool right? The next actually hit the web quite a while back but I keep going back to them because they are pretty bad ass. This collection is called Twisted Princesses and a couple of them are downright creepy. It’s definitely a new take on them. The image I’ve included is one of my favorites. Again, click the link after the image to check out the full collection.
Only two product items to show you today but they are RAD!
The Rubber Band Gatling Gun: I wish I had one of these about 5 years ago. When I worked at my old job I had one of the old school wooden rubber band guns. I fashioned a holster for it out of cardboard that was attached to the underside of my desk. My rubber band gun fit snugly in it’s holster and I would brandish my weapon my poor unsuspecting co-workers. Once I got a second gun, my boss and I would have shoot-outs. I normally won, especially if I was shooting rubber bands free-hand without the use of the gun. My aim was deadly. If I had one of these, I would have surely decimated all. (via Gadgetsandgear.com)
Chuck Norris T-Shirt: C’mon now, everyone loves Chuck. We all know that underneath his beard he doesn’t have a chin, but another fist, his roundhouse kicks cause tornadoes and that he has counted to infinity…twice. So why wouldn’t you want this shirt? Because if you’re not with Chuck, you’re not only against him, you’re dead. (via EntertainmentEarth.com)
Damn You Auto Correct: First off this is most certainly NSFW (due to language and content). And it’s not safe for kids. Jillian….I’m talking to you. Don’t click this link.
I got hung up on this site and actually HA-HA-HA’d. It’s pretty funny and mainly because we’ve all been there. Stupid auto-correct and predictive text and fat fingering while texting. It’s an affliction that haunts everyone with a “smart” phone. Click the link only if you have time to spare. (via DamnYouAutoCorrect)
Tron Light Cycle Game: Ahhhh yes, the old school Tron arcade game. I played the crap out of the original when I was a kid. My mom would go do the grocery shopping, I’d stay at the front of the store and play it the entire time. Yes, our grocery store had the Tron arcade game. Because that’s how we rolled back then. This is just a little online version of the light cycle portion. You use the arrows to navigate and since my fingers get all flustered I die really fast. In my defense I’d like to point out that if it were the real game, I’d tear it up. Check it out only if you’ve got about an hour to spare. (via ClassicGamesArcade.com)
I really really wanted to include a car chase compilation video but the one I found didn’t have the embed code enabled. Bah! I hate it when they do that. Instead, I figured in the spirit of my Battle: Los Angeles review I posted the other day, I’d leave you with an EXPLOSION MONTAGE! You’re welcome.
One of my faithful followers on Facebook was oh so kind to send this to me. In the same vein as Predator: The Musical, and in the spirit of the Conan remake, I’m proud to present, Conan the Barbarian: The Musical. I actually HA-HA’d at the 2:10 mark. Classic.
-Word came down on Thursday via SyFy’s Twitter feed that Being Human has been renewed for a second season. Now let’s hope it continues with the quality and doesn’t fall into the sophomore slump.
-Zack Snyder has let it be known that he’s not adhering to the previous Superman films. His rule of thumb is to “Respect the canon but don’t be a slave to the movies.” I think this is a great idea. It’s time to step back from what’s been established in the previous films and give the fans something new, without sacrificing the fundamentals. It worked for Batman, it can work for Superman too.
-The further I get into the Game of Thrones book, the harder it is to put down. This is a monster book but it’s so good. If the upcoming HBO series can even come close, it’s going to be AH-MAZE-ING! Plus it’s got Sean Bean. And you can’t go wrong with Sean Bean.
-Part of me really wants to get an X Box 360. But I am by no means a gamer. I get bored way too quickly, so that takes care of that problem.
-I’m going to be doing a mad trifecta viewing of all three Punisher films in the next couple of weeks. If I can watch them back to back I will, but I just don’t know if I can take it. I’ve seen two of them but missed the latest so I’m really looking forward to it. Keep eyes here because I’ll be wrapping them up, warts and all.
So that’s it for this weeks kids. I bid you all adieu and wish you all a fantastic weekend. There’s three movies coming out this weekend that I’d like to catch. Paul, The Lincoln Lawyer and Limitless. Not sure if I’ll be able to but I’m hoping. What’s on your agenda?
