Fake G.I.Joe’s to Real G.I.Joe’s: A Day in the life of…(4/4)

Posted by goldwriting on April 4, 2008

1 – Two more big names have been added to the G.I. Joe roll call. Brendan Fraser is reportedly doing a cameo as Gung Ho, while Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be coming on as Shipwreck. Seeing both these people dropped into the film is a boost to my interest, but the character choices seem a tad mixed up. “The Rock” seems perfect for Gung Ho, while Brendan seems more suited for the random comedy from Shipwreck. Ah, who am I kidding, as long as their is some dude behind a blue hood screaming about Cobra taking over the world, I’m gonna be thrilled. [via ComingSoon]

2 – This is probably only truly funny to a small group of people, but one of them is me, so I get to post it. It’s a mash-up video of footage from Spongebob Squarepants and audio from an anime title called Deathnote. Even if you don’t know that particular anime, if you ever wanted to see Spongebob go psychotic from power and corruption, it’s worth a chuckle. [via GorillaMask via CollegeHumor]

3 – Foamy the pissed off, ranting, singing, vulgarity slinging squirrel is back! This time he takes on the topic of ‘Used’ vs. ‘New’ pricing. Well spoken, you tree hopping maniac.

4 – Sometimes people and their creativity scare me. Then what scares me even more is I want to buy some of their stuff. Check out what Jessica Joslin can make with a small amount of metal, musical machinery and bones. I think she might have seen Pan’s Labyrinth too many times. [via JoshSpear]

5 – Here’s a funny story. A crazy out of work actress writes a tell-all book detailing all the crazy people she’s worked with and the morally questionable things they did. This silly woman then publishes the book and gets all huffy and defensive when some of the people mentioned inside get mad about items they labeled “incorrect, blown out of proportion, or just plain false.” The kicker to the story is the woman is then taken to court in England where the libel laws are less strict and she’s made to apologize and pay out a huge sum to a charity chosen by one of her old cast mates. I love happy endings, especially when the hero in the story is Nicholas Cage. Pwned![via Durden]

6 – This rattled me a little bit this morning. An FBI agent has been investigating the death of Sonny Bono, widely believed to be caused by his slamming into a tree while skiing, but this lone ranger has concluded that Sonny was actually the target of a well planned and perfectly executed mafia hit. Seriously? Maybe they had that tree specifically moved there early that morning knowing he would be plummeting down the hill in that very spot. Those would be the most clever assassins in history. Do they get awards for that? [via Starpulse]

7 – It’s like they’re looking in my window. [via Garfield Minus Garfield]


8 – Right on the heels of the Wargames sequel news, now the rumors are flying about a remake of our beloved Johnny 5 and the story of his birth in our world, Short Circuit. I don’t know why you would go back to this, since the humor and amazement over AI is nowhere near the place it was twenty years ago, but their first step in the remaking process has been to get the two original writers of the film. At least it has that going for it, but if I hear any mention of the robot being Johnny 6, I’m gonna cover the production offices in lava. [via ComingSoon]

9 – This video would have so much cooler if they had shown him actually shooting something with his homemade paintball tank. But, I give him credit for being motivated, ingenuous and honestly a rather scary individual. [via With Leather]

10 – It might seem weird to promote another t-shirt line when I help to run one of my own, but we must think of two things: 1) Helping others helps ourselves and 2) this shirt is just to perfect to not share with the world. [via OMG Tees]
