WB wants Harry Potter to be the next Dark Knight

August 18, 2008 at 3:07 pm (Movie, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

By now I’m sure you’ve heard of Warner Bros. pushing back the release date of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to July 2009. I’m definitely not happy about the push especially since that’ll mean it’s been 2 years since the last film. Why’d they bother putting out the trailer this “early”? They’d better not do the same thing for part 1 of the Deathly Hallows movie because it’s currently scheduled for November 2010. I’m not so worried about part 2 of the 7th movie since it’s schedule for May of 2011. I still don’t understand how movie producers are just realizing now that summer films make more money especially when it comes to kid audiences. I mean hello summer vacation!

There were some kinda dumb rumors going around that WB didn’t want to tarnish Harry’s image since Daniel Radcliffe is on Broadway this fall for Equus. This doesn’t make any since though considering he already performed it in London last year. It’s obvious that WB saw the success of The Dark Knight and we’re like “oh, we should do that again” a-duh! I mean as of last weekend (Exactly a month from it’s release date today) it’s still at number 2 in the U.S. That’s pretty ridiculous if you ask me.

Need someone to mooch off of for the FFxiii demo!

August 17, 2008 at 3:29 pm (Anime, Movie, Random, Video Games) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

As the post says the FFxiii demo is coming out soon (I guess March 2009 is kinda soon…) and it’s supposed to be quite chunky demowise (and exclusively on the PS3 *sniffle* 😦 ). It’s bundled with Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete, which the demo itself is supposed to be longer than. The original Advent Children was 101 minutes long so since it’s the director’s cut it should be close to 2 hours long or longer. That’s very cool seeing as how you can probably get into a decent chunk of storyline in that time because the demo is based off of the opening segment of the game. But seeing as how the demo isn’t coming out until March, we have awhile to wait for the actual game 😦 .

There was some more stuff revealed along with the demo in Famitsu’s 3 page article. Apparently the unknown female sidekick has gone through some tough times in the past. Well I guess I shouldn’t say sidekick though seeing as how each character in the game is a protagonist instead of just having a main and supporting characters. The man with the shotgun who was originally nicknamed “Mr. 33CM” also has a name based off of weather. Maybe it’s thunder or rain or hurricane or something. I’m betting on rain. The gameplay is going to be like most Final Fantasy games in the fact that it’s a party battle system where each player takes a turn to fight. Oh also, the Advent Children Complete movie will be on a separate disc than the demo.

That’s all for the news on FFxiii for now but let’s hope some more gets leaked out really soon 😀 .

Deliciousness :P

August 16, 2008 at 11:22 am (Food, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I had planned to have a special post today but while I was playing around with Gimp yesterday it froze up and lost my drawing 😦 .  I’ll probably get the chance to work on it later today but until then here’s something fun to look at.

Ok so in case you couldn’t tell I haven’t had lunch yet.  I was stumbling and found some really awesome looking food and that’s what I’m going to use to replace my lost drawing 😦 .

Anyways the first is this amazing cake.  It’s called “… Sour Cream-Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting and Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze, though it is actually a Sour Cream-Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Peanut Butter Frosting and Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze, but all you really need to know is that if you know a chocolate-and-peanut-butter lover, you must make this cake,”-smittenkitchen. This cake looks absolutely amazing and considering it’s a cream cheese cake it probably tastes amazing too.
Next a chocolate chip cookie from Levain Bakery. I found it on Cookie Madness. It makes me want chocolate chip cookies really really bad. In the review it says that the thickest part of the cookie was close to an inch and a half. That’s an amazing cookie plus the fact that it looks fresh and melty *drool*. If I ever go to New York I’ll have to hit that place up definitely. Even though they have cookies by mail I doubt they’d be that good after sitting in the mail. Plus it looks like they’re really expensive. For just 4 cookies it’s $22 whoa! It says that amounts to almost 2 lbs. so I guess it’s worth it.
I choose you Pikachu!

I choose you Pikachu!

Yay I love sushi, well veggie sushi anyways. I like the ones with avocado a lot. I found this site with 8 pieces of sushi art 😀 . Check out the site for yourself because it’s got some more fun sushi pictures including 2 pictures of dragon/caterpillar rolls yay! That koala is super cute too!
Next, Pacman sugar cookies! Omg they are so cute haha. I would make these all the time. Maybe I should look for that ghost cookie cutter. Apparently guinea pigs love them too; if you check out the site you’ll see it haha. I mean who doesn’t like sugar cookies? 😀

I think that’s enough food surfing for now otherwise I’m going to die of hunger pangs! Hope you enjoyed the list. I might have to make food the regular Saturday topic 😉 .

Wonderwoman would totally be a lesbian

August 15, 2008 at 11:24 am (Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I found another really cool article on The Topless Robot. It’s “10 Reasons No One Cares About Wonder Woman.” I’ll give you the rundown of the list but make sure to check out the article yourself. It has really good examples of each case.

10. Her costume sucks (Scary blue patriotic granny panties ftl!)

9. No good storylines

8. Most comics are terrible (from what I’ve seen I agree)

7. Golden Age Wonder Woman was really lame

6. “Her Lasso of Bondage” (omg it’s so true, I mean seriously that lasso reminds me of how much of a hoe Stacy X (Apparently known as Ripcord now) is in X-men. Also has anyone ever noticed that Wonderwoman’s boots are so just red hooker boots? Somtimes really tacky hooker boots but still.)
She's gonna get ya!

She's gonna get ya!

5. The Invisible plane sucked (How dumb of an idea was the invisible plane I mean really!)
4. Terrible normal villains and almost no super-villains
3. Steve Trevor isn’t hot are desirable in any way (why is he in that comic, clearly she’s a lesbian people! I mean come on Amazon princess.)

2. No sidekicks or cool butler friends to speak of

1. She’s just a girl version of Superman (and Superman really sucks, seriously Batman could totally kick his ass any day of the week. It’s why he never joined the Justice League. 😉 )

I’d like to add one to the list actually. She has no real secret identity. One of the main good things about superheroes is that they have to hide their secret lives from their loved ones so that

A. They don’t think they’re a freak and leave them 😉 and
B. So no super-villian decides to kidnap them and hold them for randsom or kill them.

Plus isn’t the whole part of a super heroes secret identity supposed to make them relateable and nobody wants to relate to a blue granny panty wearing Amazon that wears hooker boots! Does she ever wear normal clothes?

10 Cars that probably have 0 crash rating

August 13, 2008 at 2:32 pm (Random, Technology) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I found an article on Wired showing 10 new concepts for cars of the future. These cars are built to be light and speedy since they’ll need to run on alternative fuels and electricity because the “future will be a place where a gallon of gas costs more than a gallon of Scotch,”-Wired (Chuck Squatriglia) lol. Because of this though, you would probably die if you ever came head-to-head with another car. That’s ok they’re only concepts after all ;). Anyways here’s some of the coolest most dangerous looking ones.

The Airflow

The Airflow

It’s designed by Pierre Sabas. It’s made completely out of glass and has eletric motors that drive the wheels. I like it but I’m pretty sure it’d shatter into a million pieces if a tree branch or rock hit it.

Iomega

Iomega

Created by Joonas Vartola this car appears to be the limo of the future. You can see that the passengers ride in a separate section from the driver. It looks like it’s pretty cramped for the driver but very comfy in the back seat.

Enigma

Enigma

Paul Howse is the designer of the enigma. His design beats the luxury of the Iomega if you ask me. “…the passenger compartment uses magnetic levitation to isolate it from the rest of the car.”-Wired (Chuck Squatriglia.) That’s definitely the coolest backseat I’ve ever heard of. It also runs off of electricity that it gets through solar panels but would probably snap in 2 if it ever got T-boned.

Phoenix

Phoenix

Last but not least (well maybe) is the Phoenix designed by Sergio Loureiro Da Silva. He compares his design to a motorcycle with a sidecar. It’s supposed to have maximum efficiency by using a turbine in the front with a kinetic axis and electric motors in the back. To me it looks like 2 smaller cars joined up. I dunno how efficient that it can be with all the air rushing through the middle trying to pull it apart. Also the turbine being smack dab in the middle would just cause more drag to the car. I guess it is just a concept but it definitely needs more work.

1972 Makes the normal abnormal

August 12, 2008 at 10:49 am (Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

I found this interesting artist today. His name is Joshua Levine and he makes sculptures of animals. These animals aren’t what you’d think though. He takes interesting looks at mutations and evolutions of these animals and they’re really cool looking. From the pictures on his site it looks like he prefers to do sculptures in massive groups rather than just 1 or 2 figures.

He has this thing called the Stare Suit which does makes people stare at him since there’s usually things attached to the top of it. From what it looks like there’s also 3 tv screens on the back of it. I think it also must have a camera on the front for most shows. Anyways, here’s some of the cool sculptures he’s made.

Yay a look at how the light up frogs are attached

D so pretty

In case you couldn't tell, these are the froggies lit up at night 😀 so pretty

Lol I wish I had cute things like this crawling out of my shower...

Let me know what you think of these fun little sculptures. I wonder if they’re for sale or if he just uses them for shows. It’d be really cool to have one.

Fruit Salted Plum Suckers

August 11, 2008 at 12:55 pm (Food, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

Looking at Thinkgeek today I saw that they had a new product out called Miracle Berry Fruit Tablets. If you eat one of these they’re supposed to make sour things taste sweet. Personally I dunno if I’d want to trip out my taste buds like that. Also, they’re not supposed to have any “harmful” side effects. It’s recommended to dissolve half of a tablet on your tongue but if you suck on the whole tablet the sour-sweet change is stronger. They’re pretty expensive since they cost $19.99. It’s candy people!

After seeing these candies I decided to look up weird foods and found a few worth sharing. First, Seagull wine, take a guess what it is. “Put a seagull in a bottle. Fill with water. Let it ferment in the sun.” – Weird-Food.com. Baby Mouse wine is similar. “Basically a rice wine bottle full of baby mice,” – Weird-Food.com. Except it’s supposed to taste like gasoline. Just what I want to drink gasoline yum.

Scotland has a drink called Irn Bru which I’ve actually tasted. It tastes exactly like pink bubblegum despite it’s bright orange color. Apparently there’s an indoor fair dedicated to it as well. It looks like fun actually.
Edit: [Irn Bru is sold in the US but I think it’s in limited locations. Also if word got out that it’s made from 32 fruit flavors I think Dr. Pepper would be in trouble with it’s 23.]

In my hunt I found more interesting suckers. They’re called Fruit Salted Plum Suckers. They’re coated with a brine salt layer on the outside with a salted chunk of plum (a.k.a. Sabroso) on the inside. I’ve read that the plum is only in the large plum suckers whereas the smaller ones have the plum plastered to the backside. Either way it sounds absolutely disgusting to me :).

I’d much rather have one of these strawberry flamingo suckers :D.
[Edit: Recently these flamingo suckers have been removed from the site 😦 .]

Montauk Monster Rumors

August 7, 2008 at 1:13 pm (Movie, Random, TV) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

[Edit: Since some people can’t read and like to jump to conclusions about my thoughts (without reading my other posts on the Montauk Monster I might add) I’d just like to say that I don’t whole-heartedly believe all of this. I’m just stating some interesting thoughts and possibilities about the matter.]

So there are a lot of rumors going around that Monty is just part of a big viral marketing campaign. I read an article on www.montauk-monster.com describing how they examined the video with the 3 girls talking to Plum Tv. Anyways Nicky (The owner of montauk-monster.com) seems to think that it has something to do with the Cloverfield sequel. I think that this is semi-viable but it seems like it’s been too long. I would’ve thought that if it was a viral marketing scheme, a few days after it was released there would be teasers on tv or on the internet somewhere easily accessible. There could’ve even been a camcorder (or whatever they’re going to have the 2nd point of view be in the Cloverfield sequel) left with the creature. It all seems very fishy to me but the original Cloverfield had a huge amount of viral marketing. So maybe this is just them building up the excitement very early.

But there is good news. A replica of the Montauk Monster is now available on eBay. lol it’s about time! I’ve been waiting to buy my very own Monty T-shirt but nobody’s selling them. Maybe they respect him too much to put him on a T-shirt but I doubt it considering the spoof pictures that have been made using photoshop.

Just look at him, isn’t he cute? lol the winning bidder even has the option of adding more blood to him. How fun 😉

Check out my previous Monty update here.

Shia LaBeouf gets to keep his pinky

August 7, 2008 at 8:52 am (Movie, Random) (, , , , , , , , , )

Well I was going to tell you all about how Shia LaBeouf was possibly getting an amputation on his left pinky (and how Transformers 2 might be delayed more) according to Star Magazine. This was all just a big rumor started by them however. Shia’s publicist is saying that it’s a total lie. That’s good because if Transformers 2 got delayed any longer I might cry jk. But I must admit the article by E! makes me laugh at their intelligence. They say “LaBeouf has been spotted sporting a cast over his damaged wing…pinky and all,” yet post this picture. You can clearly see that his pinky isn’t even in the cast. How stupid of them. I mean come on if you’re gonna say haha you’re wrong, atleast be right yourself you know?
