Serpentor in Oil to Satan in Cell Phones: A day in the life of…(5/27)

Posted by goldwriting on May 27, 2008

1 – Think you have an obsession with 80’s toys? Go to this page and click on the letter “T” to see some amazing oil paintings of everything from Battlecat from Thundercats to Serpentor from G.I.Joe. [via Uncrate via robert burden]

2 – I know I’ve gotten older when I watch this video and the first thing I wonder about it, “Did they get clearance to roll down this road? What about cross traffic?” I miss being a Toys ‘R Us kid. [via pandachute]

3 – In a continuing desire to find new and innovative ways to donate and help others I came across this post about Give a Drop. Please check it out and help if you can. There are way too many things in this world that we take for granted without realizing millions and millions don’t have that same access to what we consider basic human needs. Give a little, trust me, it’s like giving back to yourself. [via JoshSpear]

4 – Just for those dudes out there who might have found there indie/quirky crush on Jena Malone wavering, watch this trailer for her new film and feel the flame once again. [via FilmDrunk]

5 – When you get these put into your house, you have one choice. Does this become a reference to King Ralph or There Will Be Blood. One of them ends up in a much larger cleaning bill. [via uncrate]

6 – With all the premiers being announced for next season, the one I was keeping an eye on was Heroes. NBC is going to relaunch the second season struggler with a one hour recap of the show to get everyone back up to speed, then a two hour season opener. Three full hours of Heroes. Will this win the fans back? Maybe. It has definitely won a spot on my TiVo, that’s as far as I will go just yet. [via starpulse]

7 – I love hearing stories about the loving and helpful people inside local churches, like this story about how they issued a restraining order against a family and their 13-year-old Autistic son literally banning them from attending because of his outbreaks. No offer to have him come in for more a private mass, no offer to assist in any way except to wipe their hands clean of a child they don’t understand how to deal with. Is he suddenly not one of God’s children? Hmmm…hypocrisy tastes familiar here. [via PerezHilton]

8 – A real tragedy for the film world, Sydney Pollack died over the weekend after losing a battle with Cancer. He was a brilliant writer and a consummate actor. The silver screen just got a little less talented. [via WWTDD]

9 – I want to openly say thanks to JoshSpear and his blog for not only providing such interesting things everday, some of which you see posted here, but for posting his appreciation for the band /Passenger, which after 30 seconds of listening I felt moved in a way that was more necessary than anyone, including myself, could have realized. Topping it off is finding out that they are going to be playing at the Hotel Cafe in LA on June 9, so you now all know where I am going to be that night. [via JoshSpear via MySpace]

11 – Somehow, deep inside, I always knew something was wrong with my cell phone, but I was nowhere near imagining this. I bet the IPhone is way a happier creature. [via Pandachute]

Duffster Denial to Tetris Tooting: A day in the life of…(4/30)

Posted by goldwriting on April 30, 2008

1 – Should we refer to it now as 9021 – 1? Hilary Duff has crushed teen dreams by denying that there is any involvement between her and the upcoming CW tentpole show. It was about to be a triple threat, Full House + 90210 + Lizzie McGuire, but now it shall never be. I hope they don’t try to fill the void with My Two Dads, or something drastic will have to be done. [via IMDB, 3rd one down]

2 – Put a zippered door and a lightweight plasma TV inside this thing and I think I’ve found my new apartment. [via JoshSpear]

3 – The White Wizard is back and all you demons should duck and cover, beyotches! Ian McKellan has officially signed on for the Hobbit films, soon to be directed by Guillermo Del Toro. No word yet on any of the other cast that actually appear in these prequel stories, but honestly, who cares. Old dude, white hair, big stick. That’s all the army you really need to fight any battle. [via FilmDrunk]

4 – I’m a big fan of Jonah Hill, but I’m not sure if this new rumor about him co-starring against Shia in Transformers 2 is a good thing or not. He could be funnier than what they tried in the original with John Turturro, but don’t try and make me choose between him as a sidekick and more Megan Fox footage, because you don’t want to see me get angry like that. Grrr… [via Coming Soon]

5 – With the taste of the WGA strike finally beginning to leave our mouths, SAG is getting ready to show that actors can do anything the writers can and they’ll look better doing it. The current contract negotiations between SAG and the AMPTP are going nowhere and their contract ends on June 30. So watch all the TV you can right now, people, we might be back to game shows and reality debauchery before the summer is over. [via Variety]

6 – I might actually drink tea is it was made in this futuristic kettle of coolness. Or I would put hot cocoa in it with the marshmallows so I could watch them float around inside. Hours of enjoyment, seriously. [via uncrate]

7 – Marylin Manson helps develop a new brand of Absinthe. It actually wins an award at the 2008 San Fransisco World Spirits Competition. Hell may not have frozen over, but they are all certainly drunk and hallucinating now. [via uncrate]

8 – No one believed me when I said puppies were the root of all evil, but now this article about lesser known addictions proves me right. Take that, naysayers. 😉 [via GorillaMask via Cracked]

9 – Ever want to just sit back and watch tidbits of text float by telling you what people in the interweb either loved, hated, felt, wished for, etc.? Of course you did, well, here you go. Welcome to Twistori. [via Erin]

10 – For those of you tired of seeing all the insane ways people have found to play the Super Mario Brothers theme song, i’ve mixed things up for you and found people with way too much time on their hands and an unspoken love for Tetris. [via Pandachute]

Daily Musings 3/13

Posted by goldwriting on March 13, 2008

1 – I’m buying one of these for my bathroom. Then I’m going to throw a big party when I hit 80 o’clock. [via Josh Spear]

2 – Are we really ready for 9021-1? It’s being reported that the CW network and the minds behind Veronica Mars are planning to rehash the classic Beverly Hills mega-drama 90210 and launch it as a spin off. If they can generate even half the tabloid buzz and future celebrity meltdowns as the first one, I think we would have a true hit on our hands. [via Perez Hilton]

3 – I heard this tape floating around detailing parts of a hate filled speech given by Sally Kern, a state representative from Oklahoma, but I didn’t really want to post it up here and give her even more airtime. Now I can’t avoid it since Ellen decided to go on the comedy attack yesterday, so enjoy this and remember, never piss off intelligent comedians. [via Perez Hilton]

4 – It looks like it is teetering on the truth to say the final Harry Potter movie will be split into two separate films, slated for release in 2010 and 2011. By that point we can start to expect the deluge of spin-off films, like Fred and George’s Wild Ride to Burma, Muggle Pie 7: Hogwarts New Class, and the action packed quidditch flick, Seek It Like Beckham. [via Starpulse] (even while writing this entry it was made official by the President of Warner Brothers! The movie split, not my planned spin-offs)

5 – While the movie itself might be embroiled in some creative quagmires, the trailer has finally arrived for the new Incredible Hulk starring Edward Norton as our not-so-jolly green giant. It looks pretty good in my opinion. Thoughts? Fears?

6 – I think we are all glad to see Britney getting her sh*t back together, but the record company behind her is still trying to figure out how to salvage anything from her new album, Blackout. The first video shot for it was laughably horrendous, so this time with the new single Break the Ice they decided to do the whole thing anime style, skip using Britney all together. The animation isn’t bad, but you can feel the concept was rushed because it is a blatant rip-off of The Matrix. If you want to see for yourself, head through this link and type in “danger” and “victory” in the two password boxes at the bottom of the page. Honestly, I think I was more excited by the Tron inspired Honda Civic ad that played before the video. [via Defamer]

7 – Sexman is back for his review of 10,000 BC. I honestly don’t know why I continue to write my own reviews, I will never reach this level of sophistication and depth. I bow to you, Sexman. [via FilmDrunk]

8 – Is it just me or in this new full length trailer for Speed Racer did they show his first grade teacher saying “Speed Racer, slow down!” while he was in class. His real name is Speed Racer? And somehow they are acting shocked that later in life he can only seem to think of one thing? Talk about paving your kids road for him. Might as well name him Youngest Senator or States Best Juggler. As for the trailer itself, please for the love of God do not go to this film on LSD, you’ll never make it out alive. [via FilmDrunk]

9 – Another Muppet movie? The sun just got a little brighter today. 🙂  [via ComingSoon]

10 – This was bound to happen with the comfort on anonymity online. Welcome over burdened souls to Online Confessionals. [via CNN]
