Want to meet Spidey IRL?

August 28, 2008 at 10:57 am (Movie, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

The closest most of us will get to saying hi to Tobey Maguire

The closest most of us will get to meeting Tobey Maguire

Currently on ebay there’s an auction for a chance to visit the set of Spiderman 4. There’s not been a confirmation that the 4th film is actually going to be made but I guess they’d kind of have to admit to it after someone wins this auction. They can’t really just refund them and be like “just kidding!” Besides getting to see the set, you and your guest also get to meet the cast and talk with them for an hour. The winner her/himself gets an actual role in the movie. (I would have to guess that it’s a role similar to that of Stan Lee in all of the Spidey films.) Oh you also get to go to the New York premiere and walk the red carpet with your guest wearing designer outfits. That’s pretty cool.

You should make sure you’re 18 though because otherwise you have to be accompanied by a legal guardian. Chances of someone under that age having over $5,000 (since that’s what the auction is up to right now) is gonna be slim unless their parents bid for them anyways. Oh also everything is determined by Sony Pictures, just in case you missed that when you looked at the site lol. So if you want to spend a bunch of money on a vacation you don’t know when you’ll be taking or where specifically it will be, go ahead and bid. I would if I had that kinda money just laying around but alas I don’t. Sorry Christine you’ll have to wait for your super cool birthday/christmas present until another time ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

Speaking of Spiderman 4, I hope Tobey Maguire signs on for it. I know he hurt his back and all but there are stunts doubles out there. I realize it’s not as cool if you don’t do your own stunts but Tobey is pretty good at being the dorky Peter Parker. Also, I saw Tropic Thunder last night and if you really want to see Tobey Maguire playing a funny role you should check out the fake trailer with him and Robert Downey Jr. I’ll try to post it later if I can find a good quality video.

Fly little Moggie Fly!

August 27, 2008 at 12:18 pm (Random) (, , , , , , )

Actually a Moggy is what British people call cats that they like. It’s a pretty cute nickname actually and I haven’t heard of it until just now. But anyway, 2 moggies have recently sprouted wings. It all happened during some recent hot weather in China’s Sichuan province. The owners say that the wings started out as little bumps but now they look just like little wings. One of the owners even thought that the stress from nearby female cats trying to mate with her cat caused the wings to show up. I guess he must’ve wanted to show off ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

I'm a flier!

I'm a flier!

Genetic experts say that it’s nothing to worry about though. These wings shouldn’t do anything to hurt these cats’ way of life. It most likely comes from a lack of grooming, genetic defects, or a hereditary skin condition. I wonder if they can’t grow more than one set of wings. Read more about these cute moggies here. Also check out the cat with 4 ears named Yoda.

Who thinks Cher is still sexy?

August 26, 2008 at 10:48 am (Movie, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

One of the less creepy pictures of her

One of the less creepy pictures of her

Ok so according to the British Telegraph newspaper Christopher Nolan wants Cher to play Catwoman as “a vamp in her twilight years”-Telegraph. This is worse than the rumors saying that Angelina Jolie was going to play Catwoman *shudder*. Shame on you Telegraph! Don’t start ridiculous rumors! First of all Cher is 62! Last time I checked Batman wasn’t into cougars and without the whole villain love interest, why bother introducing Catwoman at all. Batman needs someone to love now seeing as how Rachel Dawes isn’t in the picture anymore. He has a hard enough life chasing around crazies wearing masks. If Christopher Nolan picked Cher, I think Christian Bale would quit in protest to having to makeout with an old lady lol ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

Also, any rumors starting now are most likely just that, seeing as how Christopher Nolan hasn’t even signed on to do a third Batman movie (even though I’m betting he will.) People are saying that the shock to this Cher news is similar to the shock of Heath Ledger playing the Joker but I don’t remember that many people whining besides Jack Nicholson (man did he look creepy as the Joker with all that face tape, I saw it on tv the other day). Going back to the whole Cher thing though, who would choose her to be sexy when they’ve had people like Halle Berry play the role. I guess that movie was pretty dorky but I blame that on the fact that the director was too interested in showing Halle Berry in leather to care about plot.

In every Batman series Catwoman has been good at stealing for another thing. If I owned a museum and a 62-year-old lady stole something from me and got away, I’d be pretty ashamed of myself. I guess Cher is a big enough hippy to be an animal rights activist worthy of the Selena Kyle title but without all the other things that make up Catwoman she really has no chance.

There’s also other rumors saying that Johnny Depp is going to play the Riddler. This I agree with. He’s just enough crazy to do that. (He killed people with shaving knives I mean come on! Speaking of which, I still haven’t seen that and I really should.) I really think it would be a good match for him as long as he strays away from the crazy that came with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Well, I’m guessing whoever plays who in the 3rd Batman movie will probably be good if Christopher Nolan directs it. He doesn’t seem to care too much about what people think of his choices and so far it’s made great movies.

This pictures is still not as creepy as how Cher looks everyday

Poppy the Butterfly

August 25, 2008 at 12:29 pm (Random) (, , , , , , , )

Poppy the butterfly is a red admiral butterfly that befriended Dan Southerland, executive editor of Radio Free Asia. The butterfly first showed up around July last year. It landed on his shoulder while he was taking a break from work by taking a walk outside with a colleague. Then it crawled over to his shirt collar and stayed there for awhile. That’s when he decided to have this picture of himself taken with his new friend at a nearby MotoPhoto shop.

After that he “…decided to get the butterfly something to eat at the Smith & Wollensky steakhouse across the street.”-washingtonpost.com. There the waitress offered the butterfly some strawberries. He didn’t eat the strawberries but kept chilling with Dan until they were about to leave. Then the butterfly flew onto the blinds, where Dan’s colleague was able to get him off with her ID card. The butterfly stayed on Dan even when he got into a cab. It stayed there until he got home 30 minutes later. After that Dan, his wife, and his daughter “…got the butterfly into the birdbath and brought him some chopped bananas and bright red and purple salvia from the garden.”

The butterfly kept returning every day just to see Dan and kept landing on him gradually growing more and more brave by landing on his head. Dan even started coming home early enough so he could see the butterfly before it left for the night. Finally on August 15th, Poppy saw Dan one last time and flew up really high before leaving for migration. Dan hasn’t seen Poppy since but he still remembers the time he spent in his garden with Poppy.

I wish I had a cool little butterfly friend that would come hangout with me every day after work. Make sure to read the full article here.

Ice Ice Lich King

August 23, 2008 at 4:34 pm (Movie, Random, Video Games) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Omg I just finally watched the Wrath of the Lich King cinematic trailer and it’s so shiny. The undead dragon is so amazingly cool. Don’t believe, me watch it yourself. I wish the World of Warcraft movie would look like that. Their cinematics are always so great. I’m hoping this expansion is really really good and that it comes out when I can take a few days and just play it. I didn’t get a chance to jump straight into The Burning Crusade because of school and that really sucked.

Anyways if you don’t know some of the new features that the new expansion is gonna have. Here are a few.

Death Knight – World of Warcraft’s first Hero class (complete with all the necromancer powers you could ever want yay.)

You get to level to level 80 this time.

New Inscription profession (That sounds like some fun but probably is gonna be similar to enchanting. Hopefully it doesn’t count as a green effect on the weapon though so you can have both enchants and inscriptions without them overriding each other.)

The new continent of Northrend (Yay I always love new places to explore ๐Ÿ˜€ .)

New customization options (They’d better let you change your old characters faces/voices-if that’s an option. I’ve always wondered why they didn’t have a few presets you could pick for each gender of each race. They should just make it like respeccing, where you have to pay money each time and the cost gradually degrades with time.)

These are just a few of the new things coming so check out the Wrath of the Lich King site if you want more.

Superman is gonna be emo now

August 22, 2008 at 1:49 pm (Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Warner Bros. has announced that they’re going to be making Superman not crappy this time around reintroducing Superman. It’s supposed to be a similar situation to how The Incredible Hulk was a replacement for Hulk. *sigh* I hope they do it right this time. We don’t need a box set of superhero movies that sucked coming out in the future. It’d be on “I Love the New Millennium” and I’d want to help make fun of it. Since Superman flopped in 2006 there is no Batman vs. Superman (It was originally planned for Christmas of this year or sometime in 2009) or Justice League movie (Thank goodness!) coming out for awhile. I’m think they’re trying to give people time to forget the last Superman movie in order to help build up hype for the new one later.

This time around Warner Bros. Pictures Group President “…wants his next pack of superhero movies to be bathed in the same brooding tone as ‘The Dark Knight.’ Creatively, he sees exploring the evil side to characters as the key to unlocking some of Warner Bros.’ DC properties.”-comingsoon.net. By “DC properties” I think he meant making a good plot for the movie ๐Ÿ˜‰ (You know like Marvel movies do except for that horrible horrible X-Men 3 movie where Cyclops got killed in the first 30 seconds for no good reason besides the fact that Brett Ratner wanted him to. I betcha Bryan Singer wishes he didn’t drop it to make Superman Returns now, but I digress.) How the heck do you show Superman as evil?
I’m betting they’re gonna:

A. Copycat The Dark Knight by killing off the love interest Louis Lane
B. Find some red Kryptonite like in Smallville and make sure it gets stuck in him somehow

Wasn’t Superman emo enough in Superman Returns? I guess not. I’m gonna look for some Kryptonite razor blades to give them so he can go cut himself to make the movie better this time around.

Phelps is Grrrreeeaaattt!

August 21, 2008 at 10:05 am (Food, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Ok I know that title is bad, but it fits. Michael Phelps is going to be appearing on a box of Frosted Flakes. He should since he probably eats like 6 bowls of it a day. Health experts are freaking out though seeing as how Frosted Flakes isn’t the most healthy alternative of breakfast cereals out there. Rebecca Solomon of Mount Sinai Medical Center says “I would rather see him promoting Fiber One. I would rather see him promoting oatmeal. I would even rather see him promoting Cheerios.” Eeww why would a 23-year-old Olympic gold medalist want to support Fiber One? Promoting that seems to me like he would be saying “Yay it keeps me regular cuz I’m old.” I mean he may look like a monkey, but he’s not old. Besides look at him splashing in the water when he wins. Doesn’t his crazy expression remind you of Tony the Tiger punching the air?

Also, I don’t think that the health experts should be blaming Michael Phelps for “supporting” childhood obesity just because he’s appearing on one slightly unhealthy thing. I mean for goodness sake, he coudl’ve supported Cookie Crisps or something. These health experts didn’t bother to mention how Phelps is trying to get more kids interested in swimming. Gee, I wonder if that couldn’t help to cut down the fat little kiddies. Parents need to take more responsibility for their kid’s food anyways and stop spoiling them with McDonalds every day.

Edit: Here’s the prototype for the box. Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€ .

He doesn’t look like Yoda to me…

August 20, 2008 at 8:04 am (Random) (, , , , , , , , )

Yoda the cat is absolutely adorable even if he doesn’t really look like Yoda to me. I mean it’s not like his ears point out to the side like Yoda’s and Yoda doesn’t have 4 ears either. I can’t talk though cuz both of my cats have weird names too.

Anyways Yoda was being passed around in a bar since he was part of a large litter of kittens and his owners were looking for a home for him. Once he passed out on Ted Rock’s shoulder there was no choice for Ted and his wife Valerie. Even though they had promised eachother no more cats, (since they just had one die on them after 20 years,) they fell for the cute 8-week-old kitten and took him home. I would’ve too ๐Ÿ˜€ . I’m a sucker for Russian blues now.

They took him to the vet and they hadn’t seen anything like it before. His owner Valerie is sure that Yoda hears fine and is just like a normal cat besides his quiet meow. People have also asked Valerie if she had Yoda’s ears cut that way. I think that would be a horrible thing to do just to make your cat look funny. Then again people stunt the growth of their cats so they stay kitten-size during their also-stunted life of 2-3 years.

Thought I’d share this adorable cat anyways. It doesn’t help any that he looks a lot like one of mine ๐Ÿ˜‰ . He’s sure to be a lolcat celebrity if their owners put up more pictures though.

Fans might be tearing up about Watchmen soon.

August 19, 2008 at 12:22 pm (Movie, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I found an interesting article on Topless Robot today saying how Fox is trying to sue Warner Bros. for making Watchmen. “As big sis Nikki Finke reports, Foxโ€”who for years sat on their old Watchmen movie rights while everyone in hollywood took a stab at making the filmโ€”has suddenly decided that Warner Bros.’ upcoming film directed by Zack Snyder is infringing on their Watchmen movie rights, and are suing to get the new version from being released….”-Topless Robot. I always think it’s stupid when a company tries to pull something like this. It’s like way to wait until the movie is completed and then try to stop it from ever being seen. Let’s have them throw millions of dollars down the toilet and then give Fox some more money. That sounds good right ๐Ÿ˜‰ ? I do think it’s kind of ironic though how this just happened right after Warner Bros. decided to postpone the upcoming Harry Potter Movie.

Is it just me or does that guy look shockingly like Batman to anyone else?
