It’s at times like these that I stand up and tip my top hat in honor of whoever invented the internet. I don’t really have a top hat, but I want one. A razor-edged top hat that I can throw around and decapitate stuff.
Mom & Dad, 1975. I love this picture.
I’d be puffing away in geek style. But in this universe, I don’t smoke. I also don’t have an uncontrollable urge to deliberately start fires. If I did, I would definitely get one of these classic Namco inspired Zippos. In fact, I should get one anyway, in case I get the impulse to coat the inside of my lungs with tar or set something on fire. They can be pre-ordered from NCSX for a measly $108.90.

Crap. Sayonara for now Pac-Man Zippo.
I saw this while having lunch and surfing the web (yes, at the same time, because I live on the edge) and got a case of the giggles. It’s the creation of Spanish graphic designer and illustrator Carla Berrocal.
I’ve been wearing this thin synthetic human-like skin since 1980 and remember quite well the glory days of the 8-bit NES, so anything related to that gets my automatic stamp of Awesome. It’s definitely the second best wedding invitation these eyes have ever seen. Someday when I marry Olivia Munn (probably against her will), our invitations are going to be something great like this.
In case you were wondering:

- I had beefsteak with rice & beans, fried plantains and a salad for lunch.
Just recently I accidentally stumbled across Cyanide and Happiness, an awesome little webcomic created by Kris Wilson, Rob DenBleyker, Matt Melvin and Dave McElfatrick. C&H was born in 2004, so I guess I really took my sweet time discovering it. There’s a book coming out in January 19, 2010 (one day after my birthday) available for pre-order on Amazon and I want it!
I’m sick and tired of all the Jackson fever everyone seemed to have caught overnight. However, this morning, while I made coffee and listened to the not-so-sweet sound of a lawnmower next door, I saw this and it made me smile. In the real world, Mr. Bean would totally win, because he’s bad, and in a contest of who ends up outliving who, my money’s on Bean. 🙂
Visitors from another planet proclaiming the desire to befriend us all, and we are what’s for dinner? Wow, I’m a good guesser. Tonight the new V series begins on ABC, and I couldn’t be a happier geek. Having stepped out of the assembly line in the 80’s, I remember quite well being glued to the boob tube watching Marc Singer as the most badass television cameraman and Jane Badler, who played Diana, the evil alien overlord who was ridiculously hot, and also happened to be my first crush. My Dish Network receiver is already set up to execute channel 20 at exactly 8:59 pm (Puerto Rico is on Atlantic Standard Time UTC-4) and I can’t wait to catch this tonight!
I think it’s safe to say we’ve all clicked our way to The Internet Movie Database whenever we want to know specific information about a movie, whether it’s the name of a cast member, user ratings, memorable quotes or some fun movie trivia from the production of the film. I sure know I always go there before downloading renting a movie to check out the ratings, ’cause I’ve proven that if the rating is 5.5 or higher, chances are I’ll end up enjoying it. But what if I see someone pull out an amazing piece of weaponry? Will IMDB be able to come to the rescue and nurture my brain with anything and everything there is to know about it? Nay.
Let’s take peek at John Matrix from 1985’s Commando, shall we?
This piece of badassery Ahnuld is holding up while flexing his huge bicep just to make guys like me squirm is called a Valmet M78 7.62x39mm. I’m ready for Jeopardy.
Siegfried: I’ll try Weapons for $500
Alex Trebek: What is the name of the weapon Arnold Schwarzenegger holds up while flexing his bicep just after he’s done getting ready to open a can of hurt?

Alex Trebek: You got it!
