Daily Musings 2/28

Posted by goldwriting on February 28, 2008

1 – My dreams are coming true. When I walked out of Step Up 2 The Streets I fell to my knees in the theater lobby and said, “Please, Lord, let there be more. Let this franchise live on!” That prayer went up on the wings of angels and what came back was more than I could have hoped for:

“Disney will proceed with a third installment of its hit dance franchise “Step Up,” tentatively titled “Step Up 3-D.”

Pic will become the latest 3-D live-action film from the Mouse House, with “Step Up 2 the Streets” director Jon Chu in talks to reprise.” [click to Variety for the whole article]

That’s right! 3-D flip outs and headspins happening right in front of you. If they get someone nearly as hot as the last lead girl and put her under a rain machine…check please!

2 – I actually do remember when they tried to launch Slamball as a new sport and I’m gunning for them to make it back on the air. The Spike Network is just ripe for this kinda stuff. You don’t have to watch the entire ad campaign for it, but just wait until you see some of the mid-court body checks and super-spin slam dunks. Tell me this wouldn’t be fun to watch.

3 – Here’s more Touhou fun for the masses. This time, Mentos!

4 – There is a much longer clip that has been riding the Internet wave for over a year now entitled “The Evolution of Dance”, but there is one major and important difference with this newer, shorter version…and his name is Optimus Prime. [via College Humor]

5 – The world, and the people in it, may knock you down, but the only person keeping you down is you.

6 – Gerard Butler, the insane leader of the Spartans in 300, is going to be lending his voice to the comic within the comic in the upcoming Watchmen film. Unfortunately this is strictly an exclusive for the DVD release, but the whole comic will be done in anime style and Butler will lend his voice to that of the doomed captain. This sounds extremely cool, but I swear if he yells anything remotely close to “We are PIRATES!” or “We are ANIMATED!” I am going to find Zack Snyder, the director, and wrap him completely in bubble wrap and push him down a long, sloping street, so he’ll make lots of noise on his way down and people will come out of their house and say, “What the hell is that noise? Oh, it’s Zack Snyder, that duchebag who ruined the Watchmen DVD.” [via ComingSoon]

7 – Brian Eno is said to be producing the upcoming Coldplay album. Hmmm… famous U2 producer working with Coldplay. There’s a word for this… Insta-grammy! [via Perez]

8 – Predicted pricing for gas could reach $4 per gallon and when our nation’s commander and leader was asked about what he plans to do about this, his response was “I hadn’t heard that.” I’m positive there is not enough space in this computer for me to list out the things George Bush hasn’t heard, starting somewhere around the creation of the universe and ending near yesterday’s Hot Topic on The View. Can the aliens that dropped him off on this planet please come retrieve him? [via CNN]

9 – Maxim magazine has launched out it’s newest response in the Review-gate scandal. Now it is claiming that the reviews were not reviews at all, they were “previews”. Oh, I see, it all makes sense now. Well here is my preview for all future Maxim articles, “They will suck and be inaccurate and borderline slander.” But hey, I haven’t read their entire future line of issues, so I could be wrong. [via Starpulse]

10 – UPDATE: It looks like Jacko might be able to keep Neverland Ranch after all. There seem to be some bankers out there still crazy enough to lend him money and the proposed auction is being postponed while his financial estate is worked out. I said it before, I’ll say it again, the place is haunted and you’d have to pay me to live there.
