Selling Sets to Securing Stoltz: A day in the life of…(5/14)

Posted by goldwriting on May 14, 2008

1 – Taking a cue from the old days of television, the CW network has actually sold off the 3-hour primetime block of Sunday night to a media company, which will then pair up with an advertising company to develop and produce content. The commercials will actually own that block of time. I’m thinking we’re in for a mega-block-variety show featuring all the amazing things we can do the cup holders in the new Kia Sophia. Or something equally inane. [via Variety]

2 – This is one way to get rid of that pesky carpel tunnel syndrome, but on the down side, typing in UP+UP+DOWN+DOWN+LEFT+RIGHT+LEFT+RIGHT+B+A+START really fast is so much harder than it used to be. [via GorillaMask via Gizmodo]

3 – Those are the mornings when I crawl back under the covers all day. [via Garfield Minus Garfield]

4 – If the board game Life actually told the truth about your future, it might sound a little more like this. [via CollegeHumor]

5 – As if you needed another reason to want to see Wall-E, this years undoubted award winner for most adorable movie ever made, you can trek on over to the Wall-E website and build your own little cutesy creature. I swear, if this movie is as good as I think it will be, I might just marry it. I’m sure there’s a state I can do that legally in… [via ComingSoon]

6 – Even with the already predicted crushing win for Clinton in West Virginia last night, high ranking Democrats are getting louder about Clinton bowing out gracefully before June. I think they should point her to this website where wishes and dreams of the masses are shown for what will happen when Obama wins in November. Admittedly these are all said in jest, but the tone is legit. [via Tcritic via kottke]

7 – Nintendo is opening the doors to independent developers to add to their little wonder platform in the unveiling of WiiWare. This could definitely give Nintendo and edge since they will have constantly fresh and new content that will very likely be way outside the box. With that said, who gonna buy me one now? [via Starpulse]

8 – David Byrne, the wacky genius behind the band Talking Heads, is getting ready to take musical instrumentation to another level as he retrofits an entire building to play music. Knowing my luck, his premier musical interlude will happen when I am on a long winded customer service call with some dude on the seventh floor. [via Starpulse]

9 – Van Damme + Canne Film Festival = Hell Freezing Over. [via Film School Rejects]

10 – For the Battlestar Galactica fans out there, of which I am certainly one, get yourselves excited for the upcoming Caprica TV show because the indie-film icon himself, Eric Stoltz, has signed on. This is raising the bar, my friends. I smell Emmy nominations…[via ComingSoon]

Joker Dolls to Human Jokes: A day in the life of…(5/13)

Posted by goldwriting on May 13, 2008

1 – I’m pretty sure these dolls would have done well without the tragedy connected to it, but most likely not to such a quick extent. The new Joker dolls from the upcoming film, The Dark Knight, have sold out within minutes. They are incredibly accurate to Heath Ledger’s rendition of the character and I feel that many people are buying the action figure as an homage to the late actor than to the movie itself. I might get one if I can find it. He can hang out with my growing posse of Jeff Goldblum action figures, that is, if he can stand the overly intellectual conversations they have. [via Perez Hilton]

2 – Today the polls opens in West Virginia and Clinton is heavily favored to win there, but let’s be honest here, the state has 28 delegates and she’s down by over a hundred. She’ll take the state, but since the Democratic party plays with split states she still won’t get all 28 delegates. Obama is actually spending the day in Missouri since that is a critical swing state in the general election. The death knell is ringing for Clinton, but she’s plugged her ears with another $6 million dollars from her own bank account. Her complete lack of common sense anymore and stubborn pride in the face of damaging her own party is starting to feel familiar…oh, yeah, just like Bush. [via CNN]

3 – At what point do we start calling our country stupid? How about when we let things get to a point where it costs more to mint our change than the change is actually worth? Yeah, that’s a good marker for stupidity. [via CNN]

4 – Somehow I think this lock has a better record of locking people in instead of out. [via swissmiss]

5 – A 13-year-old girl committed suicide recently and she left a number of references in her last writings to her favorite band, My Chemical Romance. My heart goes out to her family and friends in dealing with their loss, but it also goes out to the band, who I actually am no huge fan of. The problem is people will begin once again to attack the “emo” kids and the music they listen to as promoting depression and teenage suicide. It’s Judas Priest all over again. Music can make you feel things, it can bring happiness or allow you to experience pain and sadness, but getting to the level of suicide will always and forever be the mark of something a lot deeper than someone playing Track 4 on loop. [via Starpulse]

6 – With a global population that has almost doubled in the last 70 years, this story about a woman with 18 kids comes off as horribly irresponsible. You want that many kids, you want a big family, start adopting! [via Perez Hilton]

7 – Word has it that Viggo Mortensen is in line to star in a sequel to Dances with Wolves. It has been a damn long time since Costner won his awards and acclaim for that film and while I think Viggo is a fine casting choice, do we really need a sequel? Was anyone really sitting around wondering, “What ever happened to that guy? You know, the dude who said “Tatanka” and ran around the fire a lot?”. [via Starpulse]

8 – On the flip side of the sequel coin, going into production soon is Donnie Darko 2, which will follow the story of Donnie’s little sister after the ending of the first film. While I may not have been wondering what became of Donnie’s family, the movie was interesting enough and created a unique type of world that I wouldn’t mind visiting it one more time. Plus, who doesn’t want more scary seven foot bunnies? [via Perez Hilton]

9 – Universal just saved Bioshock from becoming one more tragedy in the Uwe Boll franchise. The amazingly cinematic and creepy video game will be directed by Gore Verbinski, making it instantly one of the most highly anticipated video game transitions on the table. [via Film School Rejects]

10 – While the intention might be worthwhile, Kim Kardashian and her sisters have only succeeded in making one of the most offensive and blatantly uncaring PSA commercials in the world, which is impressive considering the ones from Canada where they are actually burn people alive to get their point across. Crazy canucks. [via WWTDD]

Clinton clings to Curious George: A day in the life of…(4/23)

Posted by goldwriting on April 23, 2008

1 – Unfortunately, Clinton won just big enough for her to stay in the race and claim logic and reason. Many polls showed Obama losing by 5% – 6%, but in the end it was a 10% victory for Clinton and she needed that to be able to claim a “double digit win”. Now we are going to be subjected to anoter two weeks of word twisting, over-hyping and sparkling illusions from her camp claiming that she is the only candidate able to beat McCain, which flies in the face of every major poll showing Obama winning in the general election, if only by a slight margin. I find it ironic that the Democratic party kicked and screamed eight years ago about the popular vote being the voice of the people and that is what we should listen to and now one of the most powerful members of that party is saying exactly the opposite, that we should ignore the fact she is losing the popular vote and elect her solely based on the fact she wants to win really bad. If McCain wins in November, history will look back on this race and blame Clinton for doing the impossible, handing the Republicans another Presidency. [via CNN]

2 – Marketing for the new Indy film goes above and beyond. No longer just new wrappers for candy, but actually new versions and flavors of the confectionery standards like Snickers and M&M’s. I don’t know what they mean in the description for the new Snickers bar about “exotic spices” inside, but if I open one up and a bright white light shoots out and turns me to dust, I am requesting my money back. [via Film School Rejects]

3 – Some things are just funnier when said through the mouth of old men, like this video about an “Anti-Earth day” holiday. If he just adapts his message a little from “eating rocks” to “eating rock candy”, I think I could sign up for this. [via GorillaMask]

4 – Britain’s Got Talent, the show that already launched the opera career of one unassuming cell phone salesman, now seems on the brink of doing it again, but this time with a shy, bullied-too-much, thirteen year old boy. Watch the video and I dare you not to get chills from the kid’s voice. [via Pandachute]

5 – This is hopefully just another media blitz illusion by Trump the Puppetmaster, but people are beginning to talk about O.J. Simpson being on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice. I could rant and rage about how wrong and unethical this would be and a black mark on NBC, a company fighting to gain fan appreciation and respect once again, but I’m sure my fingers would spontaneously combust from typing to fast and being fueled by the burning ridiculousness of the proposal. [via The Superficial]

6 – It’s amazing that the common level of intelligence in our society has prompted the need for a “smart toaster“. Following nicely on this will be the “smart water boiler”, “smart blinking machine” and “smart smart machine creator” which will indeed take over the world. [via Uncrate]

7 – It takes serious balls to call your movie Young People F*cking and I am sure that somewhere in the film we will be shown that very pair of balls. Oh, the end of the trailer is precious. [via Film School Rejects]

8 – If I were sitting in my office one day, thinking to myself, “Now that I have populated the world with such fine cinema as Showgirls, Starship Troopers and Hollow Man (among other random good films), what should I do now?” If that were me I can be fairly sure my answer would be nowhere close to this one provided by Paul Verhoven: “Make a movie saying the Virgin Mary was raped and that’s where Jesus came from. Oh, and Judas was a cool dude too.” [via FilmDrunk]

9 – This is surely one of those times when the meaning is lost in the translation, right? [via GorillaMask]

10 – Life lesson: Curious George should probably be just a little less curious because in the real world his antics would probably rank somewhere in the billions of dollars of damage. Crazy monkey.

Clinton’s fuzzy memories

Posted by goldwriting on March 25, 2008

In a continuing effort to put herself out in front of Obama, Hillary spoke at a press conference and referenced a visit she had to Bosnia in a manner speaking to her battle ready nature, something she criticizes Obama for not having experience with. Well, seems she should have thought a little harder about whether a CBS news crew was actually with her on that trip before she started bragging about the “sniper fire” and “no greeting ceremony” that she had to struggle through. Check out the video and witness the blatant lies for yourself.

Daily Musings 3/6

Posted by goldwriting on March 6, 2008

1 – Foamy is back, people. Let the rejoicing begin promptly. 🙂

2 – Maybe I find this amusing since I also have a line of t-shirts, but there is no doubt American Apparel’s advertising has always been borderline porn. The weird part is it’s really awkward 70’s style porn, like no one is happy to be taking part in it. So in essence, their awkwardness and possible repressed feelings from doing those shoots makes this parody video funny. I guess that’s something. [via FantasticBlognanza]

3 – You know what happens when races get too close to call? The person least confident of winning starts whining and complaining about the race being unfair. Hillary Clinton is pushing for Florida and Michigan to get their delegates in the race, which are at the moment not counted since both states violated Democratic Party rules and moved their primaries up into January. Both state knew what the ramifications were when they made the move and are only rallying about it now because the race is incredibly close. Clinton is stumping for the rights of the states and those “unheard voters” only because everyone else skipped campaigning there except her, so she won both those states. If they get added back into the count, Clinton will get a huge boost and it will also be completely unfair. The more I read about this, the more this sounds like a Bush move. Way to show you’re the candidate for change, Hillary. [via CNN]

4 – Possible good news, Swayze fans: His own doctors came out yesterday to confirm that he is battling Pancreatic Cancer, but they report that he is only inflicted with a small amount of the disease and the dire proclamations made yesterday are far from the actual diagnosis. In this case, I am in full agreement with Perez Hilton and I think we should all buy and download Swayze’s song She’s Like the Wind off ITunes and push it back into the Top 10 as a sign of support. Help perk up Dalton!!! [via People and Perez Hilton]

5 – These USB batteries could the coolest new tech trinkets I’ve seen in a very long time. The people who thought this up need to stop thinking so much and give me some of that brain power. Do they even know how long it takes me to type these things? IQ Hogs!! [via JoshSpear]

6 – Ashton Kutcher could be an evil mastermind. It turns out that he has been secretly filming a new show, in Punk’d style, but this time he is not trying to fool the celebs, but the paparazzi. The show will set up ridiculous things for the photogs to run around, freak out about and waste tons of money and time printing in their daily gossip rags, only to be exposed later as being completely duped. If you have heard rumors of Paris Hilton walking around with a spiritual guide looking like an extra from Enter the Dragon, that would one of Kutcher’s masterpieces at work. I hate to admit it, but he could be kinda brilliant. [via WWTDD]

7 – It turns out that Buffy may be gone from our TV sets, but she is living on in the comic book world and inside that six-color-press universe, she might be playing for both teams. If they had only made Sarah Michelle Gellar go down this road with Eliza Dushku on the show, honestly, rating through the roof! (not that I had any problem with Alyson Hannigan blazing the path for her, that was equally fantastic) [via Perez Hilton]

8 – This is my first attempt at posting multiple thumbnails in one post, but this is worth it. They have just released the first shots of the actors in full Watchmen costume for each of their characters. I am personally excited by this because I happen to have the honor of being friends with Malin Akerman, playing Silk Spectre. The pics are incredibly rad and only boost my confidence that Zack Snyder will make this film utterly bad-ass.

watchmencomedian.jpg watchmenniteowl.jpgwatchmenozymandias.jpgwatchmenrorschach.jpgwatchmensilkspectre.jpg

9 – Another clever group of people have found a way to continue the parody cycle for The Bourne Ultimatum. Here’s the newest volley, The Waldo Ultimatum:

10 – I posted this video once in my old MySpace blog, but this is making the rounds again and I think it highly worth mentioning one more time. Here is the Latvian Cello Choir performing Europe’s rock classic “The Final Countdown”:

Daily Musings 3/5

Posted by goldwriting on March 5, 2008

1 – The primaries last night were not the slam dunk we were hoping for on the Obama train, but the Clinton marketing engine has failed to derail us in any fashion. Obama is still ahead in the delegate count because in Texas she failed to take it by any size-able amount, meaning the delegates are fairly evenly split. While watching the coverage last night it was mentioned that there was a flowchart sent out very early on in the race between Obama and Hillary that laid out every primary and caucus and which ones they predicted Obama would take. Amazingly this document is being hailed like a Nostradamus doctrine since it’s been nearly on the nose the whole time. It predicted the loss in Ohio, the close shave in Texas and had Obama winning 10 straight in a row up to this point (it failed to believe he would win in Maine, which he did, giving him 11 in a row). So if those palm reading folks continue putting their faith in this chart, Obama will still come out ahead when the votes are all tallied up with crucial wins in the final primaries. I hope they’re right because I am someone that does want to see things change and Hillary is unfortunately showing herself to be more of the same politics we’ve had for the last 24 years.

2 – The Onion, the fake news network, is coming out with their own movie in shiny straight to DVD fashion. Kudos to Steven Seagal for being able to parody himself in what could be his best performance ever. [thanks, FilmDrunk]

3 – There is a video of this floating around, but I refuse to post it here. A US Marine is under verbal fire today, instead of literal fire, for having a fellow soldier videotape him throwing a small living puppy over the side of a cliff. I understand that war can have detrimental effects on people’s mental state and cause them to do things they would normally never do, but most of those instances come in times of intense stress and combat. This was one soldier goofing off with another and tossing a helpless animal over a cliff. Word coming out of the Marine top brass is that they are hugely disappointed and that most Marines conduct themselves with honor and respect. They are pulling together all the pertinent information now to decide what to do with this soldier, but my opinion is solidly that this person be dishonorably discharged from the Marines immediately. We have obviously been in such a rush to fill up the ranks of our Armed Forces that we are letting people in who are not there to defend our honor and our country, but people who just want to play with guns, flex their muscles and expel cruelty where they see fit. Let’s see the Marine Corps try to make a booster commercial out of that story. [via CNN]

4 – Rumors are flying around the net this morning that our favorite bouncer and dirty dancer, Patrick Swayze, is battling a very serious form of Cancer and has mere weeks to live. I desperately hope he is not as bad off as they say. Swayze may not be an Oscar winning talent, but he has helped bring about some of the greatest popcorn flicks in history. Road House not only provides some of the most hilariously violent fight scenes in history, but it also continues to serve as a measuring point for any relationship I might get into. If the girl I am interested in does not like Road House and giggle themselves silly watching it, we’re doomed from the start. But that’s only the beginning for Swayze, he also helped to bring us Ghost, The Outsiders (my personal favorite movie), Red Dawn, Dirty Dancing, Next of Kin, Point Break, Too Wong Foo: Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar and Donnie Darko. Can you imagine a happy and fulfilling life without those movies. I think not. So my thoughts and good vibes are going out to you, Dalton. May you tear Cancer’s throat out.

5 – These people have way too much time on their hands, but also way to much genius to be contained. Please enjoy, Michael Jackson’s Punch Out: [via GorillaMask via The Panda Page]

6 – The one man who did so much to bring fictional and fantastical lives to those who had none in reality has just passed away. Gary Gygax, the creator of Dungeons & Dragons, died Tuesday at 69 years old after a long battle with a variety of health problems. I was also one of those role playing kids, covering my dining room table with battle charts, dice graphs and miniature pewter figures that I would hand paint and detail myself. Admittedly I branched out from D&D pretty quickly into other system I felt work more expansive, like Marvel and G.U.R.P.S, but somehow I think that admission just made me more of a dork than before. Oh well. Gary helped to ignite the world of role playing and the nerds, geeks, dweebs and closet cool kids of the world owe him a debt of gratitude for that. You rolled a true 100, Gary. Thanks for the memories.  [via CNN]

7 – In my mind Robert Downey Jr. can do no wrong on film (not making any claims about his personal life), but doing a role of a role in blackface? Our boy might be straying from the land of logic just a touch. Luckily, Iron Man will come out before this controversial role and we will all get to experience the full gooey excitement over the comic book extravaganza. [via FilmDrunk]

8 –  The Pearl Jam parody rendition of “Old MacDonald’s Farm” is one of the joys of my life: [via Pandachute]

Kids Rock

9 – The Dragonball Z live action adaptation is being pushed from this year until 4/3/09. Some reports are claiming it is because the release weekend was getting too crowded with other big ticket fare. My thought is they had no real idea how long it was going to take to animate all those crazy diagonal lines every time someone jumped in the air. Also, the budget for blond super spiky hair gel has skyrocketed.  [via ComingSoon]

10 – What’s that you say? You want more Touhou videos!? Well here you go, it’s Hot Pockets time:

Daily Musings 3/4

Posted by goldwriting on March 4, 2008

1 – Obviously the most important topic of the day, IT’S PRIMARY TIME!!! The big states hitting the polls today are Texas and Ohio and if Clinton doesn’t win both those states, along with big showings in all the rest, it’s curtains for the New York Senator. I’ll be refreshing this post as often as I can while refreshing CNN for up-to-date results. I’m on the Obamamania train, but even if I wasn’t, it really is the time and the place for people to once again give a crap about voting and taking control back. We’ve seen the results when we shirk our duties (i.e.: mentally challenged cowboys with their finger on the trigger).

2 – Trent Reznor, aka Nine Inch Nails, is following the Radiohead trail and releasing nine tracks off his new album for free. You can download the EP here, or pay a little more for the full album, or pay a little more for a physical CD sent to you, or pay a little more for a collectors edition, or pay a little more for a super-duper NIN uberfan edition. Really, Trent? The power of giving the album away for free when it starts to look like a drug dealer tossing out the first hit. [via Starpulse]

3 – Spice Girl Melanie Brown, aka Scary Spice, is going to strip naked to help support a charity raising money to fight the sex trafficking trade. Something about getting naked to support the downfall of sex slaves just seems slightly skewed to me. Maybe I’m just having bad memories from the time I went to the Little People’s Rights rally dressed as an Oompah Loompah. [via StarPulse]

4 – Drew Barrymore has shifted the spotlight away from her near perfect relationship with Justin Long to the amazingly generous donation she made to a world hunger charity. She presented the foundation with a $1 million dollar check during her appearance on Oprah yesterday and it is being earmarked for the hunger crisis in Kenya, although if you follow the link on the right side of my home page, it will take you to the charity site and you can designate where you would like your donation to go. I chose “Greatest Need” because I think hunger is hunger no matter where you live. So if you have the spare funds, maybe choose a Domino’s Pizza for dinner one night instead of $60 in sushi, you can easily give that to these starving kids. What you receive is much more filling than food.

5 – This is truly the beginning of the end. They know all our secrets! [via Dave]

6 – Marion Cotillard is firing back at the quotes being used against her concerning 9/11 and the moon landing. Evidently she made those a long time ago and they were taken out of context. So I’ll translate for those not fluent in backtracking French, “I used to be crazy. I’m better now.”

7 – The back-up quarterback of the world breathe a sigh of relief as Brett Favre finally retires from the NFL. He walks away holding numerous records and widely known as one of the most consistent and dedicated quarterbacks in NFL history. Now the only problem is how to supplement the instant loss of tourism and sale of foam cheese hats in the town of Green Bay. [via Sports Illustrated]
8 – The video game Rock Band is taking the next step into musical history as they begin to create and release playable tracks from the Grateful Dead. What this really means is a quick upsurge in arthritis, exhaustion and death from malnutrition as players are chained to their game systems through 4 1/2 day long jam sessions. Also, sales of Cherry Garcia ice cream will undoubtedly take a jump. Mmmm…jump. [via Starpulse, their on a roll today]

9 – Now that Battlestar Galactica is back on the air, people from all walks of life are showing their fandom proudly, but none more so than these musicians that are planning a tribute show for the sci-fi phenomenon. I’m a fan of the show, but I think I am a couple steps back from singing songs about it or naming my kids something that can only be pronounced through a series of grunts. [via Starpulse, again :)]

10 – Airborne is going to be paying out $23 million dollars in a class action lawsuit where the petitioners claim: “Airborne is basically on overpriced, run-of-the-mill vitamin pill that’s been cleverly, but deceptively, marketed.” You mean we haven’t cured the common cold yet? What the hell! First some French lady tells me we never landed on the moon, then this! I don’t think I can read the news anymore. It’s too disturbing. [via CNN]

Daily Musings 2/26

Posted by goldwriting on February 26, 2008

1 – I love stumbling across hidden treasures of the Interweb and thanks to exquisite team of people over at Defamer, I can now tell all of you of the genius that is Garfield Minus Garfield. The truth finally comes out, Jon Arbuckle is certifiably insane.

2 – Here is the first of the amazing Touhou videos (meaning the one I posted before was not actually the first one created, but it was the first one posted here. Confused yet?). In this installment the animator brings back one of the most beloved theme songs and title sequences in late eighties/early nineties television, Perfect Strangers.

3 – The rumors are getting louder that the New (Old) Kids on the Block are planning some type of reunion tour. Evidently they have all landed in Los Angeles and a photo shoot could be happening as you read this. Haven’t they had kids by now? Are they going to be on the tour as the New Kid’s Kids?

4 – At a screening of The Signal someone decided to show their disappointment in the film by stabbing two random people. My favorite part of this story is the article goes on to mention how the man was kicked out of the theater. Really? Stabbing people is worthy of dismissal from my local movie house? What is this world coming to!?! [via FilmDrunk]

5 – I’m hoping this officially kills this newfound trend. I’m a huge Kevin Smith fan, but jumping on the “I’m F*cking [insert random actor here]” bandwagon plays as a little desperate for attention. This time they have Elizabeth Banks singing about Seth Rogan, mainly because they are starring in Kevin’s next movie, Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Most of this clip is rehash and not all too funny, but it picks up points towards the end with a cameo by Kevin Smith and the moment where Seth Rogan compares his manly bits to an Otter. Enjoy.

I’m F*cking Seth Rogan [via FilmDrunk]

6 – If a movie isn’t being made about this already, I’ll trade you all the Magic cards I still own (somewhere, in a box, not organized by color or anything like that, I swear). Oscar Heist, via New York Post.

7 – I’ve watched this a couple times and eventually you can totally see that the coach is having a completely legitimate reaction. [via With Leather]

8 – The Clinton camp is denying any participation in this, but honestly I don’t buy that for a second. A photo has been circulated around the news agencies and sent to blogging sites, like The Drudge Report, of Barack Obama dressed in traditional Somali garb while he was visiting a holy site in 2006. The Somali dress is distinctly Muslim-looking and the photo taken out of context is blatantly trying to show Obama as a terrorist sympathizer. I truthfully thought Hillary would try to win the Texas and Ohio primaries with dignity, but she has now completely erased any sense of that I had for her. [via BBC news]

9 – In the event of alien invasion, you need to know the specific things the alien species are vulnerable to. Thanks to this helpful instructional video, we now know that alien aggressors cannot handle the smooth pop vocal of Rick Astley. [thanks Dave]

10 – Maxim magazine has officially apologized to The Black Crowes because one of their reviewers actually sent in a negative review of their upcoming album without even hearing the entire thing. It was an “educated guess” he said. Hmmm… I’m pretty sure the next album I hear of woodchucks performing Gregorian chants is going to make my ears bleed, but I would at least listen to it first. Who knows, maybe one woodchuck would stand out above the rest, a diamond in the rough, as it were. [via Starpulse]
