I have stated on ManWithPez.com before that I simply am not the biggest Batman comics fan. That being said, there’s something about the animated version of him that I’ve found compelling ever since I was a little BoyWithPez(.com). Tonight, I watched the new DC Direct Animated feature The Dark Knight Returns part 1. I loved every second of it, but perhaps not for the same reasons most other people would. Continue reading »
Youtube user KhalidSMSahin has certainly made my afternoon a little less serious by marrying a clip of Han Solo taking no shit at dinner and the music video to Psy’s Gangnam Style.
And don’t things usually need to be made less serious?
As previously mentioned, ThatWeirdGirl and I were married during the time I’ve been away from this website. It was an awesome wedding, too. I’m sure your invitation just got lost in the mail or something. The funny thing about weddings is that they place all their participants on a hair trigger. Why do you think the groom gets so smashed the night before, or even the day of the wedding? Why is the bride ready to snap and pounce on the first person who comes to her with a logisitical problem? These people, these laid back, normal people have been so stress filled that they are as ready to pop as a pinata at a shitty toddler’s birthday party. Can you annoy them? Easily! Should you? My answer’s yes, but then again, I’m a dick. Ten ways to annoy people at a wedding after the jump.
For a group of cereals that’s only available a couple of months out of the year, you’d think they’d stop coming up with ways to make it suck. This is a bowl of Count Chocula…at one time, my most favoritest of cereals. Notice anything missing? That’s right…WHERE’S THE GODDAMN MARSHMALLOWS?! Seriously, General Mills, don’t make me go Froot Broot on your ass. My wife is a big fan of Frankenberry, which was an even worse offender on the marshmallow front! Also, it’s got blue marshmallows in it! Blue marshmallows? In a cereal whose most recognizable trait is its pink hue?
If I can only get your cereal around Halloween, then it should be at least HALF marshmallow! I don’t even care if it boosts the cost up to $8/box. I only get these cereals in September and October anyways.
HALF! You hearin’ me General Mills? HALF!!!
Firefly and it’s followup, Serenity, has been a big part of my life ever since I bought those DVDs back in December of 2003. I was at the Base Exchange in Osan AB, South Korea, and walked past it sitting on an endcap. I remembered watching it on TV the year before (it was a Whedon property, and I had already learned to place my trust in Joss Whedon), so I wanted it. Continue reading »
Okay, so I haven’t been around for a bit. That’s true. But I only did it for the best reasons. Mostly because I got married and I’ve been in grad school this whole time.
Well, now that I write them out and look at them, those are just the worst shit excuses I’ve ever written. God, I’m sorry! I won’t use my nuptials or my schoolwork as an excuse to fuck off ever again.
As far as you know.
Anyways, I’m back for now. I have the space for another year, and the price is right…or it was when one of my admins was providing it. Hope he’s doing okay, and hasn’t been attacked by zombies or radioactive rabbits or Mormons or whatever the hell they have out in Utah where he’s from.
I’d like to leave you with a videa that was linked from my comments section this last summer. I went and watched the video and was quite amused. So, here it is: SkepticallyPwnd (Where False Claims Get Kicked In The Nuts ((NICE!))) with Mythbusters Drinking Game – Clean. I think you can see why this appealed to me.
Anyways…See you soon!
If you think you can trust me, that is.
I’ve been trapped in a hotel room for a couple of days…through no fault of my own, actually. You know what this means, right? Roughly twenty channels of crap TV all day. Continue reading »
Someone around here, and I’m not saying who, has been accepted in the University of Oklahoma’s Library Science Graduate Program. Tomorrow, I’m supposed to begin on my Masters degree.
I’m not one to toot my own horn…but that’s mostly because I don’t have any horns to toot. Well, I’m going to toot the living hell out of this one.
We here at ManWithPez have noticed that the American television scene has gotten a little stale of late. There are a few sparks out there, but that’s not I’m writing about here today. Today I’m writing about British TV genre show Misfits, airing on E4. It’s aired two seasons, one Christmas special, and has announced a third season for later this year. When 5 delinquents performing community service are suddenly stricken with superpowers, what do they do next? That’s what’s facing these young twentysomethings. Also, they’re kind of rude…but in the funniest possible way. To me, watching this show is like watching someone who decided to fix Heroes…and did it correctly. Granted the format isn’t quite the same, but the idea is similiar. So, if you’ve got the ability to see it, by all means, watch Misfits, laugh at Robert Sheehan, and come back and thank me. I’m worth it!
B movies of the 90s had their queen, and she was Jill Schoelen. For once, she’s not the draw of one of the films she’s in, and for the record, The Stepfather is not a B film, but a taut, if somewhat predictable thriller with one very important thing going for it. Terry O’Quinn and his amazing performance as Jerry, the man who just wants a family of his very own. Continue reading »
