24 finale

I hated it. only because i can't STAND how this show shits all over Jack nonstop. don't get me wrong, there isn't a better show on TV, and this was a totally awesome season, but COME ON!!!!!! give Jack a fucking break!!!!!!

Weekend trip

Went to New Orleans this weekend with my family to meet up with my sister. She's in the area working for Americorp. They're helping the long term recovery efforts.

whoever designed the layout and the street design needs to be fucking shot. a lot. in the stomach and left to die. it's like D.C. getting around is a nightmare. the town is like D.C. in other ways that make it a total waste but i'm not going to go into them.

the cherry on the cake was seeing that the morons in the city actually reelected that scumbag Nagin.

let me make this clear...... from here on out, whatever that town gets, it DESERVES. when you let the race card trump common sense, you're ASKING to get screwed. so when another hurricane comes and finishes the job, i'm going to laugh long and loud.

New shows

Fox just announced their newest lineups. As well as returning shows. Mostly a lot of crap. glad to see 24, Family Guy, and Simpsons returning. the rest can go f themselves.

Returning: 24, American Dad, American Idol, America's Most Wanted: America Strikes Back, Bones, Cops, Family Guy, House, King of the Hill, The Loop, MADtv, Nanny 911, The O.C., Prison Break, The Simpsons, Trading Spouses: Meet your new Mommy, The War at Home.

Some new shows are coming and quite frankly they all look like crap. Well, except for one. This one actually seems watchable.

Duets: Simon Cowell strikes again. He's producing a reality contest where professional singers pair with amateurs to sing duets and win money for charity. Of course, viewers get to vote by phone.


Why would i want to watch this? I'm going to find a place to thrown down bets on which "pro" loses it and goes off on the poor shmuck they get paired with. Because you know that's why Fox is hoping for.

tv venting

Ok so i had the TV on last night while i was working on some homework. Boston Legal came on. couple things..... one, i have never seen this show but i have a grudge against it. 24 got ROYALLY screwed out of an Emmy award by them. yeah yeah, i know the Emmys are a sham, but i really really hate when shows get snubbed. second.... i like William Shatner. he's great. so i figured i owed the show a chance.

i promptly regretted it all.

my first question, which as a rabid 24 fan i ask very loudly: HOW IN THE 7 LEVELS OF HELL DID THIS FUCKING SHOW GET CLASSIFIED AS A DRAMA!?!?!?!?!? IT'S ALLY MCBEAL!!!!

so not only did Keifer Sutherland get dicked over, he got dicked over by someone he never should have been competing against.

no way

This has got to be a joke.

basically, the article says that Sony and other companies planning to make the Blu-Ray discs are planning on building a feature into the PLAYERS that makes it so you have to keep it connected online and if any discs that aren't coded properly (aka: discs you got raped in cost from the store) then they can send a "self-destruct" code to your player and shut it down rendering it useless.

i thought the object of a business is to make people WANT to buy your product. they might as well ship an electrified collar you must keep fastened around your neck that emits periodic shocks for the player to work. i gotta tell ya, between this kind of shit and the highway robbery prices of the PS3 we could be looking at the begining of the end for Sony.

The question is, will Microsoft jump at the chance to win a bigger share of the market or will they enact similar measures to "combat piracy" and alienate potential customers?

learning something every day

my grandmother is in town and while we were driving to meet my mom for lunch i learned that on my mother's side i'm 5th generation american. which is to say my grandmother's grandfather was born here in the U.S. on my father's side i'm 1st generation technically. he was born in spain a Spaniard and adopted by my grandfather who was stationed there in the air force at the time.

with all the immigration talk, i had always wondered how far back my mom's side was native to the U.S.

and knowing is half the battle!!!!

Laugh at Sony

get what one of the Sony executives is recommending......


GamePro sat down with Sony Computer Entertainment executive Phil Harrison at E3 earlier this week, where he re-iterated a sentiment made by Microsoft's Corporate Vice President of Interactive Entertainment Peter Moore, where he said that buyers of of a next-generation console should also buy Nintendo's Wii system.


riiiiiight..... cuz if we get stupid and blow the $700 or so for a PS3 and a game we're going to have PLENTY of cash to grab a Wii.

at this point i can't tell if Sony has gone totally bonkers or if their ego has gone out of control. either way Microsoft is laughing their asses off.

Battlestar Galactica animated

Someone decided to draw the cast of Battlestar Galactica in the Simpsons-style.

this is awesome.

Simpsons and stuff

I love the simpsons. it's a top 5 on the list of greatest TV shows ever. but...... i've actually found sometihng that i've officially gotten tired of. to the point of if i see it in another episode i'm not watching it.

the break-up make-up plots between Homer and Marge.

i'm sorry but they just aren't funny anymore. it's crappy writing, lazy, sappy, and just really really not entertaining. come to think of it, none of them ever really were. Homer and Marge's relationship issues have actually always been the weakest part of the show. sure they make for some great moments but it's a lot of unfunny to have to sit thru to get some funny. i dunno. am i alone here in thinking this?

anyways, something else in the entertainment department. star wars. lucas just announced he'll be releasing the original trilogy on DVD unedited. so now han can shoot first. the funny part is, the SECOND i read this i told myself "i'll bet anything people will STILL bitch about it." leave it the jackasses at IGN, aintitcoolnews, PvP, and Comingsoon to prove me right. all of them were like "wow exciting, but i still feel like Lucas is stealing my money, etc...." see, this is the reason i'm not really DEEP into geek culture. i'm geek enough to be a hard gamer, and hold my own on a forum, but by no means do i consider myself a "geek" anymore. i refuse to be in the same boat with these morons who sit around bashing any form of authority, complain to high hell about game/movie prices while continuing to spend money on them. then they sit and wonder why nobody respects gamers and sci-fi geeks.

MLB goes wussie

To honor a holiday most of us couldn't give a shit about, Cinco de Mayo, the Texas Rangers wore uniforms that said "Los Rangers" on them.

you gotta be fucking kidding me.

report from Michelle Malkin

i loved this comment from one of her readers.

I understand that just for last night's game, stolen bases were known as "undocumented bases", and no one was allowed to be thrown out.

Jr wins


Hells yeah!!!!

i thought he was going to have to settle for second the way Harvick was running. In the end though my boy came thru. This was a good sight to see.

Mission Impossible 3 review

It was a good movie. lots of action and tension. i can see the "Alias" influence from the director. Josh asked if the action was better than the others. I answered yes and no. it's hard to compare the 3 movies since they all had unique styles to them. I mean, it's hard to compare anything to John Woo's work. the man knows how to do action.

So anyway, it was a great movie. i recommend you go see it.

Now begins my favorite "time of the year" the summer movie season. once a movie buff always a movie buff.

Supertrailer

Just downloaded the theatrical trailer for Superman Returns. It'll be in theaters with Mission Impossible 3 this weekend. by the way, i don't care how batshit crazy Cruise is, i'm going to go see his movie. i love his movies. he can be as coo coo as he likes as long as he makes entertaining pictures and isn't telling me how to vote i'm cool.

anyway, the trailer. awesome. Kevin Spacey is going to own the Lex Luthor role from now on, i can tell. Bye bye Gene Hackman.

I don't know how to feel about this movie. i instinctively hate comic book and video game movies. it's just because i know that Hollywood doesn't respect either medium to treat it seriously. they hire douchbags like that asswipe Uwe Boll to make the movies not caring if they get treated seriously or not. Look at the first 4 Batman movies. you have to know jack shit about the comic to actually think any of those movies were remotely good. Batman Begins is the only reason i have the slightest hope for the new Superman Movie.


anyways, judge for yourself on the trailer.

Immigrants

Let's get something straight first: my father is an immigrant. he wasn't born in this country. I was born in El Paso Texas. I'm of Hispanic origin. I'm not MEXICAN-AMERICAN. i'm an American. i don't have dual-citizenship and neither do the rest of you dumbasses who were born here and try tell people you're (nation)-American. You're American. Get over it.

So let's talk about this "walkout" today. The idea was to show the rest of America that somehow we're a crippled nation without 12 million criminals doing whatever they fucking please. fine. one problem..... you aren't taking this to the logical conclusion nor are you being 100% honest. that's why i'm here to help you out.

- let's start with the walkout. the idea was to show what would happen if we were lacking ILLEGAL immigrants and yet we had legal immigrants walking out too. so that's basically like saying we wanted to test the knowledge of all 4th grade students in the school and the 5th and 6th grade throw their scores into the mix "to show support". it doesn't really give an accurate count of what were were supposed to be testing for does it?

- that brings me to the most insulting part of this whole arguement. it isn't JUST the idea that these people overestimate their value. it's that they want us all to believe that they're only bringing GOOD things to the table. they want us to just skip over the details. things like crime, economic leeching, social invasion, and overcrowding. what do i mean? well, if we're going to have a day that shows the country MINUS illegal immigrants then are we going to subtract EVERYTHING they impact? yeah yeah they do shit jobs most of us wouldn't enjoy. how noble. HOWEVER..... are we also going to have a day WITHOUT them stealing our cars? breaking into our homes? are they going to leave the drugs at the border for a day? Are they going to leave our prisons so out tax dollars go towards something else? What about our hospitals? Do we get to deny them treatment all day so we can treat LEGAL citizens and maybe bring down health care costs some? Are they going to stay off our roads so they don't wreck our cars while driving without licences or insurance so we can maybe pay smaller premiums? How bout our schools? Do we get to kick them out so teachers in south Texas only have to worry about teaching in ENGLISH? Come on you guys, answer me. You started this day. In for a penny, in for a pound.

- the bottom line is, why should we treat these people special? they seem to think they're above the laws of this country. somehow cooking food and mowing lawns makes you SO important that you should be able to do whatever the fuck you like. These people are not special nor are they irreplacable. Need someone to do the lawns? Here's a novel idea: how about you kick some of these lazy fucking kids off the net and out of the mall and make them *gasp* do some manual fucking labor for a change. Little Johnny could use some time away from MySpace and learn to get his hands dirty. So we lose a few resturaunts because there's no cooks? big fucking deal. here's another shocking idea..... try sitting down with your family and having dinner together. It ain't going to kill us to eat at home, and this is coming from a guy who eats fast food all the fucking time.

- This bill in Congress isn't the answer. They want to make it MORE illegal to do something these illegals are already doing. Our prisons are crowded enough. You want to dry up the flow of aliens? Start throwing these jackasses who EMPLOY them in jail. I guaren-damn-tee that when these factory owners spend a few months tossing salads in Chino, work is going to become harder to come by for illegals.
