Best Pics of 2008 - Top 10

I cant take credit for this post, it is from collegehumor but its pretty funny. here are my thoughts on a couple of the pics.


I have to get past the fact that Kate Beckinsale is one of the hottest chics alive, that red head kid rocks, he needs to be adopted.

Just fucking creepy, who takes this picture

First, I wish all the girls wore the blue dress to prom and there is a good chance the kid in the back has already raped, tortured and murdered someone

Fuck those Fucks

There is a handful list of tv shows, not movies that I will call great. Let me run them down.

Rescue Me

And The Riches, but who the fuck cares how good The Riches was. Who cares that Eddie Izzard rocked and Mini Driver was finally doing something watchable. Who the FUCK cares it won awards and was praised, lets just cancel the bitch. FX has a tendancie to yank our peters and run, look at "Over There", it was one season and they said FU loyal fans, FU. They keep toying with Rescue Me but we got it for one more season in May, 22 episodes, then we just sit back and see if they ruin something again.

FUCK YOU!!!!!!!

Some of these I am going to run through quickly as I am sure people (two who read this) probably seen them.

The Hulk:
The new one was very impressive, it didnt seem as childish, but they do need to get more into the action of the comic. I love the ending, I hope Downy keeps that role going for a while. I would be as upset to see Daniel Craig leave 007 and Bale leave Batman.

Star Wars Clone Wars:
I dont get into the star wars that much, so I assume if your a huge fan then this filled a small hole, but it probably made you mad with the childish jokes. If your not a fan and have a 7yr old that doesn't care less, then its perfect.

These last two I am putting the trailers on, they are both really good and just should be seen.

Calling all movie nerds!!!

Ok people, I have a hard one here, so I suggests pulling in all the resources. This movie I saw the second half of in Marlette and when it finished I got up and walked over to Paula's house because there was no way I was sitting in the house. If you have been lucky enough to experience Marlette and more specificaly the 6000 block of West Marlette street you will know that there is some vortex there that lets spirits, good and bad, roam freely. I know our house and two houses down at a friends mom's house (Paula) there was always activity. This is could be a blog alone and we could all share stories of our experience as I am sure my mother, sister, Ryan and anyone who ventured into that area would concur some freaky shit would take place.

On with the movie.

This movie was on IFC i am going to say around '98, but between 97-99 is safe. There were two little girls, sisters, I am guessing one maybe 10-12 the other 7 or so, the main thing is one was a little older. Now the older one was into or liked to play with supposed witchcraft stuff, I cant remember if she had a book or someone was telling her this stuff. I am not sure the era, they lived in the woods. One night the older sister, gets younger sister to go into the woods and try some spell, they formed a circle with something and had to stay in it. After they did the summons or whatever it was I remember them hearing, seeing or feeling sometihng and when they did the little sister stepped outside the circle. Now we go back inside, the girls tuck in a go to bed. The little one wakes up in the middle of the night, looks in front of her at a big bookcase and on top of it was this little goat, devil dude with horns just sitting there smerking at her, scary as hell. If I remember right she tries talking to him and then hears something in the attic. She runs up there and finds this angle with his wings torn off and blood everywhere, it seemed like she new him. Now this wasnt a cheap movie, it was really well done and if I remember right it was in english, not a dub.

Oh and if anyone has been in the house in marlette, they know waking up and seeing someone watching you isnt strange, thats why that part was so fucked up. I can personaly remember back to the old house in NB having someone peer in at me, but one of the people who did it in Marl wasnt as friendly. Maybe sis you would like to start a topic on this?

Find the movie fuckers, its driving me nuts. Ryan I remember coming over and telling you about this immediatly.

That time of year again.

I suggest to anyone who likes classical music or music in general to check out Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It works out good if your significant other has been wanting to see a play, musical or orchestra, because this doesn't border complete boredom. I snuck out last year and went to see it with a friend, its not a cheap show, but it does last a couple of hours. Its narrated like a story and mixes classical music with rock and a light/pyro show. The story was good, the narration fit right in and even the music I normally don't like to hear came out really good live. I am going to try and take Damian this year, funds pending.

I have never denied my man crush on David Duchovny, so you might think my saying that Californication is a must see might be a little bias. I would like to say put that all behind you and watch this show, I downloaded the first season before leaving and have been watching it non-stop. Current running shows, becasue Sopranos would lead all the time, on pay channels would have to be Entourage and Californication as must see's. David plays the character perfectly, no one else could have done it.

Me and Mr Lincoln

Well somehow I have found my way back to Lincoln Nebraska. At least in the past it was due able, even though I don't like to hang out with all my coworkers, they were here to communicate with if I wanted. When you are out teaching its a different atmosphere, you are somewhat in charge and it just seems different (hard to explain). Plus a lot of the times the students will take you out, or like my trip to Seattle I had a coworker whom I have never met, that I spent all week with. So here in Lincoln, where we are lonely little worker ants and get analyzed all day, things aren't as fun, honestly I don't know what I am going to do here all week.

The drive to flint airport was horrible, the roads where a sheet of ice and their were accidents all over. I kept calling the
hot line to see, hoping, that my flight was cancelled, but no luck. I thought to how bad it would be to send my car into a low speed spin, off into the ditch, just to avoid this trip.

One last note about the trip, I had a moment of, well having a heart, at the airport. I
don't mean for woman, because I fall in love every time I go to an airport. Actually I often think of a "ticketing system" that a friend and I thought up, that every year you get one license to have anyone you want. When you pick someone the ticket transfers to them, every ticket can be used twice or be redeemed for a cash value. There was a lot more to this, but for legality reason and in case i ever run for president, we should stop there. So I was waiting at gate A5 in Minneapolis, a gates is a wing that goes from A1 in the center to i believe A13 at the very end, which is a dead end. There must have been a late flight that was making people late for their connecting flight because people were running behind us on the moving walkway. About 5 minutes into the random running people I (we) heard someone making a terrible growling, huffing, death breath noise every couple of seconds. It was a heavy weight man, who resembled Al from Tool Time, wearing a hunting jacket, full beard and carrying a bag. He apparently was part of the late flight group and was making every effort possible to get to the connector. The noise and facial expression wasn't of exhaustion, but death, he looked very close to a heart attack. I made a story up for this man, father of 3 , happily married, never travels but brothers talked him into this hunting trip. He misses his family, doesn't like to fly and just wants to get home. His fear sets in when his plane lands late and the board says he next flight departs in 5 minutes. So he puts every effort into getting their, dreading the idea of spending a night in the airport, a night away from his family. I thought about Mr. Al the entire way here, tomorrow I will check the Minneapolis news, just to make sure.

And the Award goes to......

Your screaming, screeching, growls and moans. Your crazy hair, apocalyptic clothing, white teeth and permanent butt hole mouth. You could scurry like a rat, drink from mud holes and out-do Crocodile Dundee with the boomerang. To the future of button up shirts, name tags, jewelery stores, management and bad reunions.

Its movie time again

I failed before to mention that I saw SAW 32 or whatever it was a couple weeks a go. Well I am not sure if I forgot or just neglected to. The story was a Saw story and it had everything you expected. It did seem like they were doing everything they could to button up all the previous Saw's in this movie and in doing so the "Saw" style action that we are used to seemed more like a small side story than the main event. It didn't make things bad, it just made it seemed rushed when it came to the gore, even though they didn't hold back on this one. So if your a fan of the all the rest then you will more than likely need to see this one.

What a bad ass movie this was and what a ton of super nude, super hot chics. Let me start by giving some guidelines on watching this. Make sure you get the Blu-Ray copy and make sure you watch it on 50" of pure hi-def happiness. The movie was filmed to perfection and I think I need to mention the hot, fully nude, FULLY nude, woman. I do tred lightly when calling this bad ass, it really depends on your style, this one floats on bad to good. It got run over with poor reviews on IMDB, but the was either 1 star or 10 stars. Watch the trailer, read the snyopsis, but whatever you do dont read the reviews. If everything seems good so far, watch the damn movie. Bikers, babes and blood.

Deadspace: Downfall
Its an animation prequell to a game called, um Deadspace. Lots of gore, gore and more gore, good story too. Seems to be based on some religion, I should probably have seen the first one in the serioes. Either way it perked my interest in the upcoming game

Ghostly Ghosts

I haven't had a chance to watch the latest Ghost Hunters, but Damian and I did sit down and watch two episodes of Ghost Adventures. The clip below is pretty cool, actually some of the freakiest evidence I have seen. Not only did they capture the footage from one camera in the front, but the person behind the first guy captured a ball of light at that exact moment. I know that may have been hard to follow, but here it is.

Ghost Adventures Video

Monday, November 17, 2008


Well here are some more of my pointless movie reviews.

Definitely, Maybe:
Yes I know this is a chic movie, but I did watch it and I watched it alone. I have no reason, or excuses. Its more than predictable, depressing and you figure it out immediately. I have nothing more.

Wizards of Gore:
This was disappointing, the story got boring fast and the gore wasn't all that good. The one thing that attracted me to it was Bijou Phillips and the Suicide Girls. Phillips doesn't even get naked, now after bully I think she should do xx in every movie. The suicide girls they picked for the movie were not the best, although they did do some full nudity. The "1920's" aspect of the movie made it boring for me, plus it was hard to gather if it was real time, post apocalyptic or just some alternate world.

The Secret:
Probably the weirdest of the movies I watched. So this guy's (David Duchovny) wife and daughter are in an accident, at the hospital they both die, well apparently god messes up and puts the wife in the daughters body instead of heavan and the daughter is caught in limbo. It takes a couple of days for David to believe his daughter/wife that its his wife in the body of his 16yr old daughter. Once this happens so begins the ackwordness of mother getting to see what bad things her daughter does and well David having a wife with needs and umm a no moral standard. The wife seems to forget she is in the body of their 16 yr old daughter and she continualy asks her husband to destroy it. Since David has a problem having sex with his daughter, the wife starts living her life and flirts with screwing high school boys. At one point you feel bad for David and say just fuck her and get it over with, then you think, maybe not thats gross. I figure it this way, he screws her and lives his life, grows old and dies. At the pearly gates well talking to the bouncers he tries to explain that god did this to him and gave him his wife back, he had to make the decision. God sits behind the gates, laughing and wispering to the bouncers "tell him to leave, I would never do that, he's sick, hehehehehe". So David heads down to hell and meets directly with Satan, satan does that because he likes face to face interaction. In my story satan is played by Cheech Marin, so read in your best Cheech voice. "Oh man thats fucked you mean he did that to you? Man I dont know what to say, I mean I would do it, but you? HAHAHA, man that is twisted, you one sick man. Tell you what grab the train to purgatory and let me talk to Jesus, so what we can do"

Putting it to rest

So I believe the GH and all is cool now, I have settled down. They are running new episodes through xmas and then GHI picks up. I still suggest Ghost Adventures over on Travel Channel, they have an interesting show.

Jason and Grant respond

I dont know that everyone has access to myspace so i am going to cut and past their responses to what has been going on. This may be long, but it is definitely worth reading if you have been following the GH thing. I have to say they have come through and acknowledged what I wanted to know, they are still my favorite.

From Grant's Myspace:
People are now making videos calling TAPS fakers. It is to be expected, I guess. I just wish that people would give us constructive criticism and help us figure out what happened rather than just take the easy way out by saying we fake stuff.

All I can say is that whoever is making these videos is running on a LOT of assumptions.

I wasn't scrolling through random audio files. I had just heard a voice and was trying to find it on a digital recorder in the cold, then the batteries died. It is a common paranormal event. I showed several people that the batteries died.

The voice was heard through the earpieces because everyone can hear what the filmed team is doing through them. Not to mention that they replayed it through the ear pieces for everyone to hear. Now, how could we and our cameraman have heard it through our ears if it came from the equipment? Also, if it came through the earpieces then, how come we don't hear EVERYTHING that is said through those things? We only hear one voice?

We all do NOT enjoy filming the live show because there are people constantly telling you what to do and where to go etc. That is what Steve and Kristyn fell pray to on TV. If they cut back to a team that was walking in a place with no signal, then you wouldn't be able to see or hear them. Therefore, whenever they come to a team after a break, they want to check and make sure that the team is in a spot with signal. Also, if there is something they want you to address then they tell you during a break.

As far as the sound guy, we all knew he was coming. People aren't just wandering around. He just didn't get there fast enough to deal with the audio issue before we were back from the break.

As for my collar, I really don't know what that is about. There was an earpiece cable running down my sweater that I talked about in the reveal. That is the only thing that could have caused any type of tugging movement. But it was attached to my sweater NOT my jacket and the cable ran to the opposite side of my jacket from the "alleged" hand in an awkward spot. And even then, I had tried pulling on it and it didn't affect my jacket at all. Why did it move when Jay slapped my back? We recreated this event and it did it that way every time. Not sure why. I just don't see how I could have faked it. I understand it looks awkward to people. It doesn't to me because I was just being me.

This stuff just drives me crazy, I really wish people wouldn't assume we are faking stuff. We are instantly accused before we even are given a chance to really dissect it and try to figure it out. Honestly, no offense, but if the show was canceled tomorrow I would be sad yes, but mostly I would just breathe a huge sigh of relief because I would be able to go back to my quiet life with my family.

I guess it is just TAPS's word against the word of people who hate our show and the field of paranormal investigation.

Jason's Myspace:
OK, so here it is.
I have been hearing from people claiming there are youtube videos and so forth claiming we faked it.
Well what ever, to each their own but this is my statements and thoughts!

1 The voice:
Now that voice was so loud I heard it come through my earpiece.
I have never heard a voice that loud on a case.
At the time we heard it I asked if it had come from inside the building or outside.
I asked that directly on live TV!!
If we were faking it then would I have asked?
At the reveal I even asked Lee if a boat could have said it over a megaphone.
The reason I was asking this was because there were Coast Guard and other private boats on the water trying to keep boats from coming ashore.
Common thing someone would say if certain people happen to be in a place they should not be in would be, " Your not supposed to be here!"

Production never used my question to Lee, but it was asked.

Lee stated he did not believe so.
So, before some of you out there accuse me of faking something at least know the facts and listen to what I said on the live show, and now you know I was and still am looking for an explanation for it.

Also, I have been doing this for almost 20 years, why would I destroy that now!
If we ever faked anything and got caught SCIFI would cancel the show instantly, why chance that, especially on a LIVE SHOW?
Scifi and GH are not that important to me to destroy myself in a field that I love to be in, and Scifi would never pressure us into anything like that, nor would we ever anyhow. So those who blame Scifi, do not. They have always been 100% honest and true.

2 Grant's jacket tug!
People come up with the weirdest claims about this, I have heard all these.
1 There was a fishing line running down his jacket
2 There was a remote control that I was using to pull down his jacket
3 Grant was fidgeting with his right hand and was pulling a string
4 Grant's hand was in his pocket working some mechanism.
5 Grant's jacket tugged one last time after I checked it and patted him on the back.

Here is my responses:
1 Fishing line running down his jacket?
I checked his jacket, I even opened it up to try in show everyone at home.
There were two wires Grant had on him, one was his audio cable so everyone could hear him. That ran down his t-shirt in the front of his cloths.
He also had an IFB cable that fed up to his ear. This cable allows Grant to hear our Executive Producer in case there is an issue. This cable ran inside his sweater and up to his left ear I believe. This cable did run down his back, but inside of his cloths, it would have effected his sweater and everything else.
Also the jacket pulled in at outward motion, not a downward motion.
Also a heat signature came off the jacket when it was pulled. I have seen the footage zoomed in and it is strange.

2 A remote control?
Huh? Are you serious?

3 Grant fidgeting.
We were on an Island that was 10 to 15* colder then on the main land.
People put their hands in their pockets or near their side when their hands are cold.
If someone wants to assume he did it for a certain reason then no amount of explanation is going to change their thoughts.

4 Grant working some mechanism.
Same answer as 3

5 Grant's jacket tugged another time after I patted him on back.
No argument there, I saw it happen in the video when looking at the evidence.
I have no explanation, could have been the same thing he was experiencing happening again, or maybe something catching.
Either way he did not fake anything.
I can honestly say I have known Grant for a LONG time, spent 16 hours a day with him in the plumbing field and the paranormal field.
He has never and would never fake any evidence.
Like I said, there will be those out there who will believe what they want to believe, so be it.
All I can do it state my thoughts and feelings.
What the people who claim Grant faked stuff decide to believe is up to them

Speaking of Ghost Adventures

If you havent read the prior post, please do so first. I want to approach this post as if nothing had happened with the Ghost Hunters and they still had my eternal respect, which they still do, depending on how they approach this. When I got home I was glad to see the tivo had picked up an episode of the new show Ghost Adventures (whom I will call GA). The concept is 3 guys, two investigators and one equipement/tech guy. The host of the show says to be a skeptic untill he saw something himself, now he has set out to prove what happened to him. They go to places which are supposed to have "mean" hauntings. They lock themselves in for the night and set out to piss the spirits off. They set up static cameras inside, outside and each carry a camera in which they film eachother with. The idea of the show is pretty cool and i must say I was impressed. They are no Ghost Hunters, they dont seem to be as professional and to be honest they seem to scare themselves a lot. I mean they are putting themselves in that position, they lock themselves inside a house for the night after hearing ghost stories about it, of course they are going to scare themselves. This episode about a house in florida was good, they caught a couple good things on camera. The show is worth seeing, its not GH, but it is a cool idea.

About those Ghost Hunters

Ok, I just want to recap on what I said about the Ghost Hunters. Personaly i dont feel like they have faked all their footage and proof in the past, but I do feel like they were forced to do something this live episode that they didnt agree with. I think this is evident with Jason's lake of concern with the coat tug and his distant feeling throughout the night. If you watch the video from the live feed (second video below) you see the three coat tugs on the collar as they happened at real time, once this happens Jason comes over and inspects Grants coat. Just after inspecting it he pats Grant on the back and about 2 seconds later Grants coat makes an unatural pull down, the same pull that happened earlier. The conspiracy video (thrid one below) is showing that pat on the back at the end. Once you understand what to look for watch the live feed again and see it in real time. Had that coat not moved the 4th time, remember during the reveal GH neglected to show it, I would believe it 100%. The GH guys are still my go to people when it comes to paranormal, I just hope they address this on wednesday during the roundtable.

Now there is a new show on Travel Channel called Ghost Adventures (click here ). Its about 3 guys whom lock themselves in supposed haunted houses for one night. They have no camera crews and no production, its just them and the cameras they set up. My tivo picked up an episode this weekend, I am going to watch it tonight and see how it is.

I am not giving up on GH, but I definitly think they need to address the problem. If anyone still isnt seeing it in the videos let me know.

What can happen next?

A lot of you know my love for the Ghost Hunters and how I have followed them around since the beginning watching their every move. I have had nothing but respect for them and believed everything they have done. So with this you know how much this bothers me to even talk about this. To me it's like being cheated on, lol, I mean it. Now as we sit thru and read this I would like you to watch the videos in order. I also noted that this year there have been a lot more voices heard outside of the EVP world, more audible to the naked ear. I watched in total about 4.5 hours of the live event and I got to see all the hiccups that happen during a live event. I did think to myself that Jason seemed very out of it and distant from the investigation. Not that it seemed he had something else on his mind, but that he was upset or pissed at the investigation. When things would happen Jason just seemed burnt out on them, or like he didn't care. I pushed it away and thought it was Halloween and he was away from home. I continued to watch my beloved Ghost Hunters throughout the night. I heard the voice live and couldn't believe it, I thought this is amazing. I called my sister and a friend to see if they heard it, but no one had watched it yet.

Sorry for the double post of video, both are the same, cant get the one to go away

Here is the voice.

I couldn't believe it at this point, i didn't want to stop watching, but I had to. I stopped the DVR and decided to wait until the review that was the next week. Normally Josh Gates interviews them and discuss what happens on the show. The review started with no Jason and Grant, just video, they were just showing clips from the live event. Fifteen minutes in I am seeing everything I saw live, but still no Jason, Grant or Josh, what the fuck was going on? I could still the the distance Jason had during the show, it reminded me of how someone acts on a double date when he doesn't like his date.

The footage of the collar getting tug hit me hard, I couldn't believe it. I thought wow, here we have interaction between a ghost and a human. Not only did the collar thing happen once, but three times total. I was blinded by what the odd revel was showing me, true footage, I was noticing nothing more than this great capture. The reveal showed 5 quick angles and that was all, nothing more on it. Here is footage from it live when it happened.

Coat Tugg.

I immediately called my sister and told her how cool it was and that there was another new episode coming on after this. After talking on the phone for a couple of minutes I rewound the tape and watched the coat tug over and over. It was then I remembered how distant Jason was and how he didn't really seem to care, like he almost was avoiding it? What is going on with him? It was about the tenth rewind I started to get mad at myself, I was getting mad because I was starting to question the coat tug. I was getting so mad that I decided I needed to go to the Sci-Fi website and read the forums, I wanted to hear from other fans that that would disprove my feelings that were starting to set in. I couldn't believe my eyes when I got to the forums, It was like hearing a girlfriend had cheated on me. People were mad and saying the same thing "Grant faked the coat footage" I read all the posts, heard all the stories and it all made sense. Was i falling victim to a conspiracy? Was this all shit and I needed to remember that they would never lie to me? People were posting things about Grant never taking his hand out of his pocket when it happened, the English guy snickering and Jason trying to avoid the stunt and getting mad. What? Whats this!!!! Jason was trying to avoid it? I had been seeing it, I had seen his distance and now I knew what it was, it was disapproval. Am i trying to form my own conspiracies now? Am I not believing the two people whom I trusted 110% I quickly went to Jason and Grants myspace pages to see if they have talked and they did. Grant swears his hand was outside the pocket and he didn't fake it, Jason says he believes Grant. i watched the footage again and was even more mad to see clearly his hand in the pocket. I wanted proof this was real, but it seemed to be slipping, the conspiracies made sense and I had seen all this, I just neglected to act on it. I didn't think it could any worse until I saw a post that read "Evidence it was fake". I opened it and read it with caution, but then there was a link. I opened up the youtube video and watched in horror as someone pointed out the bloopers and possible errors throughout the night.

Then at the end came the proof I needed, the proof I needed to realize it was fake. I am disgusted with what i saw, absolutely disgusted.

Here it is.

Next week there are having the round table show with Josh Gates, I can only hope that they nip this in the ass. I don't feel as though they will be on next season and if they are, I am confused on how I will feel about the show.

Comments are expected

I am watching my Tivo'd GH Live while typing out these last two posts. If you have it taped, go to about 1hr 25 minutes in with Jason and Grant and holy shit they get one of the creepiest disemboweled voices ever. It seems that they have been getting more and more voices this year that we could hear with our own ears, this one live, scared me, but I had to rewind it. I am glad melissa didnt have Sci-Fi, because Damian wouldnt have slept after this.



Its a movie weekend!

Well I started the weekend off sick, or in the finals of a cold. I took friday off after barely making it through thursday and headed to saginaw around noon, went to Halie's school for a singing halloween thing and then off to trick or treat. It was a nice weekend for it, but it went south around 7 PM, thats when I reliazed melissa doesnt get Sci-Fi. I wanted to be part of the 7 hour investigation with my friends from GH and Destination Truth, but I had to sit back and wait to watch the Tivo'd version at home. So I went to my bag of new movies and decided to settle in and watch a few. Here we go, in order they appeared.

Friday: Halloween
Wanting to keep with the Halloween theme I went for the scary type movie in my bag. First lets talk about some things to come out of the 90's that we liked. Porn staring Jenna Jameson, Freddie Kruger and Tom Savini's redux of Night of the Living Dead. With that lets discuss their evil counterparts, like Jenna's gang rap (sorry jenna), Robert Englund trying to act and Zombie Ninja Gangbangers (click here). Ok so now that its all clear, lets talk about Zombie Strippers. I know i am not a director, but if i have a movie with a porn stars name on it and a title stripper, we best have lots of nudity and some good ole sex. What we get is no sex, about 1.5 seconds of frontal from Jenna and then her covering her breasts for the majority of the film. Of and when they are Zombies and they strip, they start taking less and less off. Its hard to believe that this movie wasnt non stop xx action, shit Porky's had more, and its good thing they didnt try and make a movie based on their title. There was a couple of funny parts, but only a couple, it was mainly plagged with horrible acting and even worse zombies. There was a scene where female anatomy was used as a weapon, but they refrained from even getting graphic. Rent at your own risk, mainily if your bored.

Saturday Afternoon: War, Inc.
Not a lot to say on this one, just another funny and good John Cusack film. I cant really think of any bad movies he has mad, I mean some are not great, but they are all watchable. Come on, what about "Better off Dead", I can still sit and laugh through this entire film, shit almost all his 80's films are classic. War, Inc has him back as hitman (like his excellent film, grosse pointe blanc), where he has to go to a war torn country to kill someone. The movie makes fun of our political system, presidents and our ability to market almost everything. I dont want to give to much away here, so definatly read about it and if it sounds good, rent it.

Saturday Night: Tracy Fragments
Hmmmm, ummmm, hmmmmm
If you lost your copy of Buffalo 66, you could watch this.
For those of you I work with this comment will make sense, its like having TMI read a script to a movie. Now for those of you that dont understand that, TMI is a person I work with, we have nicknames for everyone. When TMI talks its like this, lets put it in numbers, if you asked him to count to ten it would go like this. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5....2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, ..... 4, 5, 6, 7, 8...1, 10. So if the confusion that makes, makes any sense, then welcome to Tracy Fragments. If you rent it, there is a special feature where people can take raw footage make their own Tracy Fragments movie, well the winner made a better video that the director did.

Sunday Afternoon: High School Musical 3
Well I have watched the first two when they came out on Disney Channel, Damian really liked it, so i have seen it a few times. When the 3rd edition came to theater I figured Damian would be more than excited to see it, but when I asked he wasnt interested at all. After some asking over and over I got it out of him that his friends would make fun of him for liking it and they wouldnt be his friends. I felt really bad, because I know what its like to enjoy something that other people dont and to be made fun of for it. I figured I was already making it better, because he could talk to someone about it. I asked him if he really wanted to see it and he said yes, but was still hesistant. I wanted to explain to him that if his friends make fun of him for it then they arent true friends, but he is onle 7 and thats hard to swallow at that age. The older you get your friends begin to accept you for who you are and not the things you like or dislike, so I decided to go another step. I told him we could go and it would be our secret, he didnt have to tell anyone and if anyone did find out he could tell them that his dad is a huge fan and made him go. So off to the movies we are, pop corn, pop and a musical. I have to say there are a lot of movies that I would have never watched had I not had kids. Watching those movies now I think I enjoy them a lot more. #3 was like the rest, singing, dancing and hot chics.

It's all over.....

If you have never seen the last Sopranos episode then you may not want to read this!!!!!!!!!

As I said before my last DVD in the Sopranos series came a couple of days ago. I tried this weekend to put it off and not watch it, but I couldn't. I held the secret to life in a little blue envelop, there was no way I could put this off anymore.

I became part of the family late in the game, around season 4 to be exact. I don't think that should take away the fact that I am a super fan and that this is the best show ever. I loved Tony, the family and all the goons that followed him. I was there with him on the Stugots when big pussy got it and I held my breath when Pauly went for his possible ill fated boat ride. I watched the kids grow up, the marriage go up and down, Tony screw up over and over. I was mad, not angry, and saddened when Tony helped Christopher die. He loved that man, he also loved Adrian, but he put his love for the family first. I don't think Tony saw that deep. Bobby getting it at the hobby shop was hard, I dont think he ever carried a gun, he didnt use one untill a few shows ago. Poor Sil,
Consigliary to the family, he went down with a fight, never gave up. I was there, in that restaraunt that night, nervous like everyone else. "Jesus Meadow, park the fucking car." I knew this was it, there would be no more and in the back of my head, the talks of this "ending". We sat there, for once seeing life with (through) Tony and then, in no measurable time, we saw it end. I could feel it in my stomach minutes before, its Michael Corleone all over again. Young Michael, never wanted to be involved, but took on one major task that pushed him to the top. I dont see myself as a movie expert, but I knew what had happened and I thought it was brilliant. There was no second guessing, no looking in horror, no seeing the wake it leaves, just nothing. Thats life, exactly how it will be, nothing no more. We dont get to see people cry, or try to avenge our deaths, we dont even get a final song. It couldnt have been done better, I sit here with a hole in my heart, a blank feeling, because just as in reality, there are no answers.

There is nothing I could ever do to bring back Tony.

This is a great article and explains the end to detail, I am sure everyone who has seen it understands it, but this is a good read if your interested or especiacly if you didnt understand the end.

This is the end.......

Today I received the last dvd in the Sopranos series. It is a sad moment, I have pushed this day farther and farther, but now it is here. My plan is to slowly buy the seasons and start watching it again and then again and probably again when Damian comes to age. That age, I dont know, I seem to be lowering and lowering it. I have so many movies and series for him to watch, but I need to wait. Well her we go, this weekend I will have finished the best show ever mad and immediatly after want to watch it again.

Lying Fuckers

Has anyone else purchased or have in their possession a copy of The Happening that stats boldly on the cover that has "OVER 1 HOUR" of footage not in the theater? If they are talking about all the making of shit then possibly they do, but there is maybe 10 minutes of different scenes. Also don't show all the shocking shit in the previews on broadcast TV, that kind of takes the "shock" out of the movie. I respected Mr shalamanonodingo for his movie in the theater, but after endorsing this piece of shit DVD he can burn in DVD hell.

Yes I am pissed, I want my money back.

Ozzy, stop, please

Destination Truth pt.2

I wanted to go into Destination's episode last week, it surpassed any creep factor that Ghost Hunters has had. I mean no disrespect to Jason, his balls, Grant, Eye Candy and Steve, but they need to get off their ass and go with Josh (destination truth) and investigate the Mt. Fuji: Suicide Woods. Normaly Destination Truth is Crypto shit, but sometimes they touch the paranormal. Story is this section of the mountain is a well known spot for suicides and the government puts all these "think twice" signs in the woods. You can watch these episodes online and I highly suggest this one. The group gets separated while searching and the medic runs into these weird college students who are just "in the woods". He stumbles across an old camp where someone left all their valuables, as they look around they find four holes, with pieces of personal documents. What they found was an undiscovered suicide. The creepiest part was when they started to slowly look up in the tree's, the camera man started to and then put the camera down. Josh see's something next to a tree and freaks out, if your a fan of the show you would know he is a huge skeptic. The did catch some creepy sounds and a video that I think is as good as the prison footage GH got a couple years ago. So show your support and start watching the show, this is the second season and it needs to keep going. Josh usualy joins the GH crew during the Halloween show, so if you watch that you have seen him. He also did a couple episodes with the GHI crew, but Bryan (no longer on the show, thank god) and Berry got pissed at him because he kept making fun of their style.

I know I am a dork

Here is the write up from DT on Mt. Fuji

Mt. Fuji, Japan: Haunted Forest

A crowded, dark forest bordering Mt. Fuji, Aokigahara is infamous throughout Japan as a popular spot for those taking their final journey. In 2002, 78 bodies were found within it. By May 2006, at least 16 new suicides had been found. No one knows how many bodies go undiscovered. Signs emblazoned with messages are nailed to trees throughout the forest.

No sounds can be heard other than those produced by the forest itself. Aokigahara is considered the most haunted location in all of Japan. Spiritualists say that the trees themselves are filled with a malevolent energy, accumulated from centuries of suicides.

The next episode is about a lake monster and some elves that ask road crews to move the roads, lol, it sounds funny I know. They are supposed to have awesome footage. Heres the trailer it didnt work good for me.


Ghost Hunters and Destination Truth

I don't know if anyone else watches either one of these but they have both been excellent seasons. The next episode of Destination Truth is supposed to be one of the best. The Ghost Hunters have been getting EVP's that seem almost impossible. Destination doesn't normally do ghost stuff but they did two this season so far and both had a lot of evidence. The one this last week had some visual evidence that rivaled Ghost Hunters penitentiary video. It would be cool to see them do one of these places together.


Dying to Live never came, the order fell through, so while in Seattle I stopped at Barnes and Noble. Speaking of if anyone wants to order from there I bought a membership and can give you the number for 10-40% off.

The Third Policeman was referenced in Lost, if anyone watches the show.

Bruce Lee, the master

Here we are on night 3, Monday being Twin Peaks, tuesday was downtown Seattle and the underground Italian restaurant. It was cool, only about 10 table and the chef would walk around and talk to people, reminded me of Artie from Sopranos. We also went to an old crazy hospital that is now the Amazon World Headquarters, pretty cool, it supposed to be haunted. Today we set out to Lakeview Cemetery, home of Nordstrom, a few Generals and Bruce and Brandon Lee.

There are a lot more pictures and they will all get put up when i get home

A Mountain

Well I was thinking about breaking this down into numerous post, but lets just make it one large ass blog. Of course all these photos will be uploaded when i get back.

During the descent into Seattle I notice one of the coolest sights I have seen in a long time mountains, and the Mt. Rainier, the stratovolcano. I knew at some point in this trip I needed to see it, a better view at least. On the trip to the hotel, through the winding roads I saw bits and pieces of the monster coming through the trees, but never a good view.

I arrived at the Larkspur Landing suites about 3:30, ordered some food, talk to Damian and decided to set out around 4:30 to find my mountain amongst mountains.

I thought that my best bet would be to go up, up and up, until I could find a break and finally get a good picture of it. I did make it up some hills and did see city from a distance, then crossed Lake Washington, went downtown and back out again. It was a fun hour and a half in the car, but still no volcano.

As I was about to give up and well start to pay attention to the bitching GPS, I had a glimpse of hope and it came with a road sign.

I again became quickly frustrated to find myself in the same position, only glimpses. I traveled for another hour looking through tree lines, over houses and through people. I did find that what seemed to be prime mountain property was in fact the run down , bad part of town. Me, some Vietnamese and the local Spanish gang all roamed the streets, some selling themselves and some looking for a view.

Finally as the sun began to fall, I saw salvation. It came from a small apartment complex, not the nicest place in the world, i actually didn't fell comfortable getting out of the car, but I had to. There it was, in its greatness, sitting front in center before a picnic table and a stationary grill. So why is it this little rundown community has the best view of Rainier?

I have a lot more pictures, but right now I am going to sit down with a local best, Henry Weinhard's Blue Boar Ale and watch the new season opener of Dexter.

Welcome to Seattle

Just landed and at hotel, pictures to come.

The British are IT

Seems as though, lately I have been giving my time to BBC. I religiously watch Top Gear, which is probably one of the best, funny, infromative luxory car shows out. I also enjoy Hell's Kitchen, their documentaries and a new show called Skins.

Lets step back a few years and let me admit to my following of Dawson's Creek. Some reason I fell for this show and stood by every wednesday to watch Pacey break up with Joey and Joey give Dawson the blue balls.

Now back to Skins, which is the British version of Dawsons Creek, but with
sex, drugs, drinking, nudity and swearing. I dont know if it's my attempt at

being a teenager again, but this show was really good. I would suggest it to everyone, the first season is only 10 episodes and very easy to watch. It is currently playing on BBC America, but I would download it to keep from seeing the edited version. BBC plays lots of stuff that would be censored here, but they do block out fuck, cunt and frontal nudity.

Lastly I would like to make a category for most inventive/creative/startling end to a show. I would like to put Skins in my top 3 for, to me, the most off the wall and inventive way to end a season. Mind you I have not finished Sopranos yet, so it may be there too and somehow I have managed not to hear the ending. So watch skins for its British humor, drug usage, nudity and Top 3 TV Shows ending of all times, according to myself.

Google Talk

I know some of you use it, but there are some that dont. I suggest you do, it would make things a lot easier for me. Its built into your gmail, you can download the program or even get it on your phone. So go do it now, life would be easier.

Blockbuster Reviews

See someone finds my movie talking usefull, we atleast 3 out of 20 million do

James N.

You have to give this movie a chance and whatever you do, don't base your rental decision on his past movies. Uwe actually got me to sit through an entire film here. This movie crosses every line and doesn't hold back, but its not sloppy, thrown together comedy. Come at this with an open mind, dark sense of humor and the ability to laugh at stupid sh$%t. The acting flowed together, the plot held up and of course there is senseless violence. If your looking for a "scary movie" or "not another teen movie", this isn't it, but be prepared for whats inside.

The Camera

Well the new camera was out in full force this weekend, taking pictures of Pumpklin Patch 2008. Again all the photos on the website are downsized to fit, so if you want a hi-res one just let me know. My only complaint so far for the camera is it not coming with a string for the lense cap and its too easy to take a shit load of pictures.

There is one in there that Damian calls his cool look, hes on a hill with his sister, I am sure you will notice it.

It looks like a scratch on the display in this photo, but its not, its brand new

Last movie watched

I highly suggest King of Kongs: Fisftful of Quarters, the image to the right has a link. This is documentary is really good, even a little better than Darkon.

The end of movies

I have been trying to finish the Sapranos over the last few weeks and it's not that I cant, it's that I dont want to. I started this a couple of years ago, got to the end of season four and stopped, I didnt want it to end. After restarting the series and now making it midway through season five, I started to wonder what could be next. Take the Godfather, one of the greates movies out there. Three movies, apporximatly 360 minutes of movie and it set the bar for Mafia movies, but it was reachable. Goodfellas, Bronx Tale, Casino and a few others are also great Mafia movies and did it within 2 hours each, but the Sapranos, holy shit!! Six seasons, 86 episodes over 5760 minutes of mafia tv, could there ever be another mafia show. I am sure someone may try another movie, but if your a true fan of the genre, you have to set and glue the bar in with Sapranos. This can also work with WW2 movies, so many good ones out there, I cant even name them all. But, can true fans ever look for anything better than Band of Brothers? This can work with lots of things, like to me, their can never be another X-Files, Ghost Hunters or Lost. I think 20 years down the road when someone puts out a mafia movie and everyone loves it, someone needs to say "no, that sucked, watch the Godfather and Sapranos" and they will change their minds.

End of the World

ALICE goes online Wednesday, I cannot explain in detail what it is, but the two links below will. Basically they have finished the 17 mile long circular track underground that will move a particle at 99.9999% of the speed of light, the closest we have ever gotten. Not only are we going to do this, but they decided to move a particle clockwise and another counterclockwise, this is an attempt to creat black matter or tiny black holes. I guess this is supposed to allow us to see how things started 1 billionth of a second after the big bang. According to foxnews there have been death threats to the scientist, trying to get this not to happen.


check out the video in the middle right

Auf wiedersehen mittler westen, auf wiedersehen

I am scheduled and confirmed for Bellevue, Washington the last week in September. It looks like I am finally getting out of the Midwest, this will also be the farthest west I have ever traveled. Looks like I need to find a new zombie book.

Tropic Thunder

Whent and saw Tropic Thunder with some co-workers tonight and I think..... Ok I am not and still am not a Ben Stiller fan, I just dont like his comedy. I think he wrote a great movie, but I just get fristrated seeing him on the screen to much. Tropic Thunder was awesome and very funny. Something that got me was they were really graphic in the beginning, but as the movie progressed, there were spots there could be gore, but nothing happened. Jack Black stole the show for me, he was funny and Downy Jr was a strong second. I honestly felt like Tom Cruise's character was better than Ben Stiller. There were some previews in the beginning that were great, the one with Downy and Tobey Mcquire was the best. Its a must see, expecialy for Jack Blacks character.

Uwe Boll makes a movie "Postal"

Well I just finished watching it here at the Wichita airport and it was great. Dont think of it as a scary movie, disaster movie or some mainstream shit like that. This has a plot, washed up characters and good acting. The movie has goofy jokes, but they all fall into place and dont seem like they were just thrown in for the fun of it. You have to have a sense of humor and mostly dark in order to like this. It starts off with the hijackers arguing about how many virgins they get, untill they finnaly call Osama and ask him. Its about terriosts, a religious cult and the end of the world. My attention was kept throughout the entire think and more than once I laughed outloud. I cant emphasize enough that this is nothing like those bull crap spoof movies we have, everything works out smoothly in this. Its a must see, but remember this movie has no "limit", anyone and everyone can and will die.

I am hoping these are little baby octopuses I just ate. Click on picture for a much better view.


Three votes and all different, that is nuts. Some of you are probably thinking James has two kids, two boys, some are thinking he has three kids, two boys and a girl. Oh, and whoever said one doesn't know anything and they need to step forward. At one point there was concern of two boys, but that has been proven untrue. I have made the decision on my own to make Hailie, that is Damians sister a part of my life. Hailie's father wanted nothing to do with her and if anyone can tell a baby not to bother them when your interacting with their brother, you can burn in hell. I made this decision a couple of years ago and its been that way ever since. So know you now, I have two kids.

WTF James

What is this, is this a Uwe Boll movie? Did you really spend the money on his piece of shit work? Is that Postal next to your laptop, with Tony Saprano on the screen, sitting on a desk, in room 210 at the Hilton in Wichita Kansas?????? Oh yes it is. I have been waiting for this, ever since i played the first game 13 years ago (wiki link) (fan site link). I will give my review as soon as I see it. According to G4 its a must buy, plus it comes with the game postal 2 and it comes with the boxing matches between Uwe and the critics.

Reading can be fun

I dont read, I will be the first to admit. Magazines and small articles are ok, but never a book, that is untill a friend turned me on to World War Z. It's about the zombie war, what better is there? This should happen, screw wars, plagues, meteors, religious apacolypse, I want zombies. It took me a couple of months to read it, primarily during my flights and I couldnt wait to get back to it. I suggest everyone read it and learn, because when the shit hits the fan, I dont need people coming ot my for advice.

Deeper in the Midwest....

Well Wichita Kansas, here I am. It looks like Lincoln Nebraska, just in a different state. Although I have only seen it in the dark . Well time for bed, gotta get up in 6 hours for class. Actually class doesnt start till 8, but I want to get there early. I will try and get some pictures of this city in the middle of nothing during the day.

Epic Failure

According to Dassault Systemes (in your best French impression), you must achieve certain goals to become a Certified Dassault Instructor. Now, I already am a CATIA V5 Instructor for Technigraphics, but in order to be recognized by Dassault I need:

-Have 15 Days of Instructing
-Work for a Partner
-Attend a COE
-Pass the teaching competence course
-Become certified in Part Design Specialist, Assembly Design Specialist and Generative Shape Design Specialist
-Choose one Expert field to become certified in, Part Design Expert, Assembly Design Expert or Generative Shape Design Expert

I will more than likely work towards the Part Design Expert track. I have already completed the Part Design Specialist test and I am now recognized by Dassault. Today I took the Assembly and Generative Design test and filed them both. They got me, the first 10 questions got me, I had no idea what they were talking about. So this week while I am in Wichita I will study some more and go back at it again. I was hoping to complete them before my financial review came up in September, but looks like I have to wait.

Thinking Back....

Had I flushed the toilet prior to my toothbrush jumping from my hand and into its yellow death, would I had rinsed it off and continued to use it? When it happened I sat there disgusted, eying the floating Reach and noticing the toilet wasn't flushed. I carefully pulled the toothbrush out and disposed of it. On my way to work I was mad for a split second I hadn't flushed the toilet, but what if I had? Would i have tried to save the toothbrush?

The Photo....

Not sure who this mystery man is. I found this picture on the internet about 6 years ago and ever since he has been a part of my life. Every time I look at it I think of a new story for him, what exactly may have been happening in the picture.


-The INS breaks the door down "They went that way man"

-"Get your own Bud Light, I had to fight aliens and brave a waterfall"

-"Corgon just dropped more rainbow colored unicorns off to fight the jungle dogs of ameraith. grab a BL and follow me. to VICTORY"!!!!!"

-"Over here, in this room, the one right behind me, I'm a gynecologist, I promise"

My son, seven years old as of the 12th, has always been a fan of sharks. I believe he first saw Jaws at around 4 years old. He didn't really understand it, just a big shark eating people and someone kills it. One of the things I got for him this birthday was Jaws and Jaws 2. I drove all over looking for the other two but had no luck, looks like I will be ordering them. It was this weekend, while watching Jaws 2 before Jaws, that I realized how he has matured mentally. When the mayor asked chief to lie about the what he thought was the reason the girls died, he asked me why. With kids the word "why" is thrown around a lot, so I didn't think much about it. Then we get to the beach scene, when chief sees the dark shadow in the water, calls the people out and starts shooting at it. When the guy started to yell it was just blue fish Damian started to repeat it, "its just blue fish". Then the action stopped and everyone was looking at chief, and you could tell chief was embarrassed. Damian got mad and told me "Aww man, its just blue fish. See dad, See that. He did the right thing, he thought it was a shark and he did the right thing. He didn't want anyone to get hurt, he just tried to save them". I acknowledged it and told him he was absolutely right, that sometimes you have to take risks like that and not worry what others might think. Later on when everyone saw the little boy get eaten he yelled out "see, he was right, they shouldn't have told him to lie". The next day we watched Jaws where he showed the same feelings toward the characters and the story. I thought it was pretty cool to see the difference in what a couple of years can do. I am sure we will be watching Jaws a lot more and even more when I find the last two.

All New Experiences

I sometimes send random emails with nonsense
