Good Ole’ Days to Goodie Goodie Robots: A day in the life of…(5/6)

Posted by goldwriting on May 6, 2008

1 – This safety video shows what it was like in the good ole’ days, a time of purity, cheer and rabid wolverines in your pants. [via Today’s Big Thing]

2 – Sometimes the people who make these prank or spoof videos without the knowledge of the people involved are walking the thin line between comedy and public abuse, but in this case, since the person they chose to mock is Gary Busey, the fine line they cross is between sanity and public safety. How they made it out of there with their spleens intact I will never know. [via FilmDrunk]

3 – Now that GTA IV is out, here’s a great list of games that will unfortunately fall by the wayside. [via CollegeHumor]

4 – There is a charity foundation for kids suffering from Proteus Syndrome, but it’s down at the moment. So until then I wanted to link to this site about the Alex Hoag Run, which is an event to honor the memory of an amazing boy who died due to complications from the syndrome. Please make the time to check this out and learn. [via Jon]

5 – Going above and beyond the recorded predictions, Iron Man tromped all over the box office this weekend with a $201 million dollar intake, making it the second highest opening for a non-sequel in history (only behind Spider-Man). Not bad for Robert Downey Jr. and crew. That kind of money can almost afford the amount they spent on WD-40 to keep the suit from squeaking during the shoot. Who would’ve thought? [via FilmDrunk]

6 – A gay teenager was voted onto the ballot for Prom Queen at his high school, but it turns out the school administration felt this was not legal in some fashion. Please stand back while I now put on my “shocked” face. [via Perez Hilton via WISN]

7 – This somehow feels absolutely perfect for a Monday morning strip (even though I didn’t post it until Tuesday morning, consider it Daylight Savings Day). [via Garfield Minus Garfield]

8 – Can San Diego really take more Ron Burgundy? Well those hep cats better figure it out soon, because he’s on his way. The whispers are flying around that Anchorman 2 will be made after Adam McKay finishes his current project. I’m not sure this is a comedy that can stand a sequel, but then again, it’s Will Ferrell, who would pretty much do the sequel to a Life cereal commercial. [via ComingSoon]

9 – Iron Man has blasted the doors open for Marvel and their upcoming slate of films, featuring Iron Man 2, Thor, The First Avenger: Captain America and lastly, The Avengers. With Jon Favreau back in the chair for Iron Man 2 and possibly on board for The Avengers, I’m feeling an odd sensation that I haven’t attributed to comic book films in a long, long time…confidence of quality. [via Film School Rejects]

10 – The desperate souls behind Terminator 4 have announced they are shooting for a PG-13 rating. I know some people out there are going to be mad, but let’s face facts, they are praying for some serious box office revenue here and PG-13 movies will always beat the crap out of R ratings due to the availability of the whole family coming instead of just the older children. Plus, it’s McG, so we couldn’t have hoped for anything cool in the R rating anyway. I’m half expecting the whole movie to be a video game. [via FilmDrunk]
