End of the month and another day behind

Nothing much to say as this month comes to an end.
I am behind in updating, so let me just say, be wary.
I sense Zombies ahead.

Hey Arizona - You Suck.
It's bad enough that you chose not to celebrate MLK day and keep choosing not to.
But this shit about cops asking for papers, come on.
The last time a goverment asked for someone's papers, they were asking in German:

"Ihre papiere, Bitte"

So, Dr. Who Series 5 has ended.
And the final episode was called: The Big Bang
Well, it didn't go out with a bang, more of a farty fizzle, but it wasn't too bad.
The pace of the episode was too fast, but the same can be said of most of the Series 5 episodes.
I like the set-up for next season with River Song and
searching for who was flying the TARDIS and saying "Silence will fall" at the end of The Pandorica Opens.
Of this season, I'd have to say that the Pandorica Opens & the Van Gogh episodes were the best.
I'd rate this the worst season for Doctor Who since the reboot in 2005.
Not that it was horrible, it just wasn't as good as previous Series

If I had to order them:
1) Series 3 - 10th Doctor
2) Series 2 - 10th Doctor
3) Series 4 - 10th Doctor
4) Series 1 - 9th Doctor
5) Series 5 - 11th Doctor

Best special or movie to date, hands down, The End of Time Part I & II

Series 5 will come out on DVD later this year.
In the meantime, check Amazon.com for upcoming Doctor Who DVD releases.

Each version I have posted is slightly different.
So here is the Official Video by Tomato Alumni Graham Wood.

We did a lot on this camping trip, but for me, fishing was the focus.
I fished at 5 different mountain lakes including Lily Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park.
It was my first time fishing there and I caught a Greenback CutThroat Trout.
That is the rarest Trout in Colorado.
The fishing was hard work. I only caught 5 Trout the whole trip.
But, they ran the gambit.
I caught a Beautiful Brown Trout, a couple of Rainbow Trout, 
a baby CutThroat Trout and of course the Greenabck CutThroat.
Check them out:

A Beautiful Brown Trout

A Baby Cutthroat Trout

A regular old Rainbow Trout

A Baby Rainbow Trout

The Endangered Greenback CutThroat. Don't worry, I threw him back.

Usually we see a lot of Elk, but this was the first trip to Estes Park in a long time
where we saw no elk at all.
We saw plenty of Deer, Chipmunks, various birds including a Golden Eagle
and even a couple of Rocky Mountain Coyotes.

Props to Jez for being the Telematic Grace that he is.

I only caught this one little Moonlight Trout:

Going offline for a bit.
We'll be back with tons of mountain pics next week, our thoughts on the Season Finale of Dr. Who
and of course TRON.

I wanted to get the TRON page perfect before this,
but with Comic-Con, new TRON stuff is coming out every hour.
So, I am going to postpone my TRON page updates until the beginning of August.
That will give me a chance to recap everything.
In the meantime, enjoy the newest trailer.
Thanks to Chuck for finding this so fast!

I just watched the biggest piece of crap.
It is a "Documentary" called No One Ever Dies in Lily Dale on HBO.
It is about a town of Mediums and Psychics.
Holy bullshit Batman.
If you want to see a bunch of con artists at work, check this shit out.
I don't know what is more sad:
The people desperate to get closure with someone dead or the people who actually believe they can talk to the dead.

In case you couldn't tell, I have been on a big Underworld kick as of late.
I am just giddy about their upcoming album release in September.
Now are good times.
Many tasty tunes are being released as singles, new live shows & bootlegs and hopes of a US tour.
Here we see a fan meeting quirky Mr. Hyde.

While at work, a giant spider stalked Anakin Stahlwalker.
I hit it with a can of Diet Mountain Dew, twice.
Agent Mulder poked it with a tube.
And it still got up and ran away.
Now, it is on the loose.
After doing some research, we have found out what kind of spider it was:

A Cordera Mexican Hairless Vampire Tarantula

-| /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/ |-

This made me laugh:

"Daddy, where does TETRIS come from?"

Mr. Cleveland from Philly thought he may have beaten me on "Geek Knowledge" today.
He was so sure that Dr. Bashir from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was
the same guy that played Baltar on Battlestar Galactica,
he bet me $5 bucks.
Needless to say, I am $5 dollars richer.
Moral of this story:
I am King Dork of Nerd Mountain.

Now, that being said Mr. Cleveland from Philly will crush
any takers when it comes to Rock History.
He knows more about Zeppelin than you know about your mom.
Mr. C has seen more concerts than Red Rocks.
So next time you think you know everything there is to know about The J Geils Band,
go talk to Mr. Cleveland so he can knock you on your ass with Rock Knowledge.

True Blood is looking good again.
I was getting worried there for a minute when they introduced Werewolves into it.
That's just a little too close to that Twilight bullshit.
But, after last night's episode, I am feeling much better.
Blood, guts, sex, and fangs. That's more like it.
BTW, what the fuck is up with Sam's family?
Who is the girl Jason's with? My guess, she is a ghost or married.
Bill kicking the head Werewolf's ass proves he still is a BAMF.
And it was a sweet, although brief, fight scene.
All of the key Vampires are now in Mississippi and based on the trailer,
next's week's episode looks fucking "fangtastic".
(That was really cheesy, I know).
Check out the episode break down on IO9 and be sure to watch the video.
Now that's texting Motherfucker.

So "The Pandorica Opens" was in fact, pretty good.
I am stoked to see "The Big Bang" later this week.
Best thing to come out of Series 5, Dr. River Song.
River Song is a bad ass. She can fly the TARDIS all by herself.
I didn't first like her in Series 4 all that much.
She was the only good thing to come out of the Weeping Angel episodes of Series 5.
She has grown on me.
And although it hasn't been revealed for sure, I'm pretty sure she is The Doctor's Wife from the Future.
Here is something from IO9 along the same lines.

A Joke provided by Tommy Cleveland from Philly:

I took my Dad to the mall the other day to buy some new shoes (he is 66).
We decided to grab a bite at the food court.
I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting next to him.
The teenager had spiked hair in all different colors - green, red, orange, and blue. ..My Dad kept staring at her. The teenager kept looking and would find my Dad staring every time.
When the teenager had had enough, she sarcastically asked:
"What's the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?"
Knowing my Dad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not choke on his response; I knew he would have a good one!

In classic style he responded without batting an eyelid ....
"Got stoned once and screwed a peacock. I was just wondering if you were my daughter."

Well at 9pm EST today, the biggest joke in sports history took place.
LeBron James appeared on ESPN to announce "his decision".
The Special was Called The Decision.

What an arrogant fuck head.

After 20 minutes of getting verbally sucked off by Stewart Scott and the rest of the ESPN commentators,
LeBron announced to Jim Gray that he was going to Miami to play on the Heat.
Accordingly, this is how Cleveland Responded:

(Click the pic to read an open letter to LeBron from the Cavs owner)

LeBron, took a giant shit on Cleveland on National Television.
LeBron, you are a fucking piece of pelican crap.
And you are almost as bad as Art Modell.

Look, I am like all Cleveland Sports Fans who have moved out of state,
I root for somebody else.
Personally, I like the Nuggets when it comes to the NBA.
But, Cleveland will always be the homeland.
And whether or not I watch every Indians Game, Cavs Game or Browns Game doesn't matter.
In my heart, those teams are always My Favorites because they are the hometown teams.
(Technically, I'm from Warren/Youngstown but, whatever. You get the point)
LeBron, you hurt my homeland. Which by the way is YOUR HOMELAND TOO.
And it's not the fact that you jumped ship. It's how you went about it.
So, you little son of a bitch, I think I speak for all of North Eastern Ohio when I say
Go Fuck Yourself.
As far as the Cavs go now without you, well, they're still shitty.

LeBron James to play for the Martians!

"According to a source close to the situation (and even closer to insanity),
LeBron James and his dreamy, free-agent co-stars have agreed to play for an NBA expansion franchise
located on Mars and granted $100 million in start-up cap space. "
(Click here to read full article on the hype.)

The hype around who LeBron is going to sign with is out of control.
In my opinion, if he doesn't stay in Cleveland, he is a chump.
Someone needs to slap his ass and tell him that he really isn't a "King".
That's just a nick-name you Jackass!

Here are two articles worth reading about this LeBron signing hype.
The first is from May 16th, 2010....while the Post Season was still going on.

And this article was published today:

Well, I've always wondered.
Thanks to this site, now you can find out.

"How big is a Borg Cube?" or "Is a Star Destoyer bigger than a Romulan Battle Cruiser?"
and "How long is The Event Horizon?"

Check it out!

I am stoked because the first batch of figures is from Epire Strikes Back.
Which means a New Bespin Luke.
It has all of the cool sculpting of a modern figure but the vintage package
of the original figure released in 1980.

Good Words for Independence Day

Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. "Mankind." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night!" We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!

Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDOM!
Alba gu bràth!

When I go home people'll ask me, "Hey Hoot, why do you do it man? What, you some kinda war junkie?" You know what I'll say? I won't say a goddamn word. Why? They won't understand. They won't understand why we do it. They won't understand that it's about the men next to you, and that's it. That's all it is.
