Dark Lord Happy Hour

Over at RIPT. Really nothing else for me to add (other than I want one… but that’s a given). found via Geeks of Doom

x:movies gone wild

Posted: 28th March 2011 by 7ucyClark in geek stuff, movies

Not ‘x’ like x-rated… ‘x’ like Marvel’s X-Men. According to Empire magazine, the follow-ups to the Last Stand are in the works; X-4 and X-5 [place BMW product placement joke here]. This in the face of a re-boot due out in June. How can this be? Two Professor Xs? Two Magnetos? Is another Great Schism […]

Spring Training Baseball and the Astro-Tigers

Posted: 28th March 2011 by 7ucyClark in not a sports blog

I’ve got XM radio, and as such, I have available to me the games that are broadcast. I particularly enjoy this, as it allows me to listen to the games at work. Baseball at work elevates the game, for me, to a sublime experience… I think because it allows me the illusion of fucking-off, even […]

Theory, as relates to trailers and movies that follow them

Posted: 27th March 2011 by 7ucyClark in movies

So… in support of my ‘average’ grade on the Sucker Punch movie, I’ll now refer to this theory I have, which describes the correlation between a movie, and the trailers that precede it. My theory is such: The quality of a film can be ascertained by evaluating the trailers that are played in front of […]

movie review: Sucker Punch

Posted: 27th March 2011 by 7ucyClark in geek stuff, movies, review

Inception Island… just off the coast of Brazil Update: I’ve just read a interpretation of the movie on /Film (spoilers, naturally)… I’m not sure the I can completely reconcile this interpretation with the movie that I saw, but by god, I’m trying to make it fit, because I like it better than the conventional perspective. […]

Portal 2 poster

so… the characters that Valve is giving tribute to: C3P0 & R2D2? No… too easy. I agree that may have been the seed of the concept, but I think they mutated from there. I’m thinking: Bert and Ernie… and to a greater degree, Mike & Sully (which, when it comes down to it, was likely […]

glee?

Posted: 25th March 2011 by 7ucyClark in book, geek stuff

it appears that there is another entry to be added to the Douglas Adams cannon. from the Guardian: “A novelisation [sic] of the “lost” Doctor Who serial Shada, scripted by Hitchhiker’s Guide author Douglas Adams in 1979, will be published next year. The story features the Time Lord coming to Earth with assistant Romana (Lalla […]

King’s Speech: the Expurgated Version

Posted: 25th March 2011 by 7ucyClark in movies

‘kay– I’ve been sleeping on this one because, quite frankly, I don’t think the movie interests me. As such, I haven’t really been paying attentions to it. It took this long for me to realize that the topic holds for me interest. I’m offended. And alarmed. This sets a bad precedent, and opens the possibility […]

Body Shop

Mix-Ups by Brandon Ortwein found via Scott Beale / Laughing Squid the ‘lost’ minivan is rather subtle, which is nice… but I think my favorite is “…Prime Directives?”

Pie-day

Posted: 25th March 2011 by 7ucyClark in food stuffs

for clarification: I do not refer to March 14th. Every sixth day of the week is “pie-day”. Todays Pie: peach Crust was an experimental batch; Pie Master added baking powder to enhance color. Seemed to create a more porous crust, rather than layered. ‘Cakey… not ‘flaky’; I did not find it an improvement. Filling was […]
