Ah, Hell.

I forgot to have anything ready today. I suck.

Here’s a picture of a corgi, courtesy this wonderful blog.

I bet being a dog is really awesome.

So there’s that. I suck, I know I do. I had all day yesterday. Did nothing.

I’m not proud of it, but it happened. Have you guys ever had Hot Pot? It’s either Chinese Hot Pot, or Mongolian Hot Pot. I don’t know because I’m bad Chinese.

Hot Pot is where I was yesterday. Three hours of eating what is essentially a giant tub of soup filled with the contents of a pu-pu platter. The amount of food on display is both inspiring and humbling.

Inspiring, because eating all of it is truly an accomplishment, and humbling because you never will.

Except I did. I am a monster. So did everyone else I was with. We all went into shame spirals, and most went into the blessed rest of a food coma.

You’re going to try and fight the coma. Do not fight the coma. I fought the coma. You know what my reward was? Brain damage. My thinker’s gone right to Hell, because I crammed my body so full of food, that my sinuses filled with meat, forcing my brain to get pushed into the the top of my skull, slowly annihilating all higher cognitive function, and the thin membrane separating muscles from skin is now filled with dumpling skins and rice paper.

I lay here, typing this, praying for the sweet release of death.

A Colder War: Links to Better Writers

Hey guys, I’m dealing with a vicious combination of Writer’s Block (capitalized because It’s important) and exhaustion, which might actually be me getting sick.
Hooray.

So while try to become re-inspired/better here is still some stuff to read on a Monday morning.

First up is a Colder War by Charles Stross , a sci-fi and fantasy writer, which is essentially Cold War politics and spy games in a world where Cthulhu and the rest of the Elder Gods are real.

This is why nerds shouldn't breed with each other, if at all.

The second also involves Cthulhu and is written by fellow blogger and friend of the site Erin Palette of Lurking Rhythmically. It’s about Aquaman versus Cthulhu for a series she did for a Literary Comic Mash-ups mass blogging thing that happened a bit ago.

There’s also one of Iron Man done by William Gibson which is kind of fucking amazing.

And finally, for all of you comic book and art nerds, I’ve pimped it before, but Project Rooftop is one of my favorite sites and I easily lose hours looking through its archives. The blog is basically redesigns of superhero costumes, and it’s a lot of fun to look through.

Man, if they sold that as a jacket with the mask as a hood, I'd buy all of them.

Hopefully I’ll see with with something substantial on Wednesday.

The Green Lantern Trailer: the Die Hard’s Perspective

Chad recently did an entry where he, as a non-fan of Green Lantern, took a look at the Green Lantern trailer.

Take a moment to read it if you didn’t. It’s a good read, and as someone who’s followed GL since I was in grade school, it was interesting to for me to see  what someone else thought.

So here’s my thoughts on the Green Lantern trailer, from a die hard fan.

For the Second Time in as Many Weeks: Derp

I spent Thursday through Sunday drunk.

I spent most of Saturday well soused, dancing like a guy who has no business dancing, and screaming the lyrics to rap songs from the early 90’s.

I regret nothing.

That’s why there’s no quality post for today.

However there is this:

Good Lord, how I hate Russell Brand.

Ah, Crap.

Hey guys, I just spent 12 hours traveling across the country and completely forgot I had a blog due today.

So, on Thursday, I’m going to talk shit about some movies coming out that I can’t believe are coming out.

For now however, here’s a movie that should be coming out.

If you look up the IMDb page it’s heart-breaking that the guy behind this trailer, with no money made something that looks this exciting, new, and imaginative, isn’t getting to do anything else, yet Catwoman, the Joel Schumacher Batmans, and Ghost Rider were made and seen by like a hundred people before it was released on the public and no one said anything.

But hey, someone dropped tens of millions of dollars to make a movie about owl helmets.

Man, Pixar really makes it look easy.

Incept’d

Came up with this with Kyle of LOL/JK and Moon County fame.

I’m prouder of this then I would be of any child I’d help make.

If you don’t get it, go see Inception again, and then listen to Notorious BIG’s “Juicy.”

Or just listen to the song. Or listen to the song and then go see Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. It’s a comic book movie, filled with videogame references, about a boy meeting a girl that’s somehow one of the most originals films of the last five years.

INCEPTED.

I’m just kidding, I know you’re all going to see Avatar, again.

Happy Birthday to America! And Happy Long Weekend to Us!

NSK is taking a long weekend because two days is not nearly enough time to love America.

At least it’s not if you’re doing it right. The way America likes demands it.

While we enjoy the sun and beer you at home (or work. Suckers) enjoy this video which is the greatest thing this country has ever done.

When the fuck are we going to get jet packs? It’s 2010, damn it. I can hold the internet in the palm of my hand. The next step after that is jet pack.

Whatever.
