Plan 9 from Central Park

Don't see M. Nights latest flick. Instead, head to your local Blockbuster or Hollywood Video and ask for the worst movie ever made. They will probably say something to the extent of "I'm sorry sir, but The Happening is still in theaters and no one would ever bother to bootleg that pile of garbage."
Your response to this will be, "Can I have the next best thing?", at which point you will be handed Ed Wood's Plan 9 From Outer Space.
The depth of Ed Woods biggest failure manages to muster up thought provoking ideas and performances with have leagues of depth compared to M. Night's third failure in a row. Here's a compilation of the best lines uttered during Plan 9:

Sadly, you shouldn't expect anything better from The Happening.

Still At It

For those of you who actually know me, you may remember my buddy Lance. Lance and I are infamous for our lightsaber training excerices which we typically engaged in on cool summer evenings in Marshfield. Of course, with there being a short supply of training sabers and the season ripe with baseball fever, wiffleball bats made an excellent substitute. Just imagine, a jovial round faced boy, with a fro to rival a 70's semi-pro basketball star, swinging away a yellow stick at a similarly armed boy decked in a floral bathing suit, a novelty SW shirt and flip flops.

There was one occassion where Lance traveled with me to Bridgewater. In this instance we had enough friends with the amazing light up toy sabers to stage a full out 3 on 3 saber assault on Matt McGann's front lawn.

Below is a video the Lance recently made. As you can tell we are both still deeply disturbed individuals who have a hard time letting go of our childhood fantasies. Lance can be found at his new website,

Rockets and shit

I watched the first 2 hours of the Discovery Channel special "When We Left Earth: The NASA Missions." It was pretty interesting watching the test pilots go through training and then strap themselves to a controlled bomb.

I was reminded of the story of Joe Kittenger, who fell to Earth from 31,330 miles above the surface after leaping from the Excelsior III hot air balloon. It was a 14min and 39 second free fall. Here's a video detailing it.

In responce to "Irritating the modern Geek"

I posted the following on the in response to a thread asking what annoyed a geek the most:

I hate when people, upon realizing the extent of my Star Wars fandom, have a desire to tell me that they've never seen a Star Wars movie before.

For a couple reasons, I don't give a flying fuck. Even if you have scene any one of the six, I don't have anything to tell you about a Star Wars movie that hasn't already been said. I'm not going to be having a completely original conversation with you about which trilogy was better or how annoying Jar Jar is. We get it, he was awful. If you have seen the movies, fat chance you've picked up a SW Novel or comic, and IMO, that's the most interesting stuff.

That or you're telling me because you want me to go off on how great they are: I'm not going to go out of my to convince you to watch a movie and I'm certainly not going to flame you for not seeing them.

Don't patronize me, I can have an intelligent conversation concerning an array of topics.
