In no order really.


This past weekend on the STARZ channel, they've been airing Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez's movie "Grindhouse". The first movie is called Planet Terror and the other is Death Proof.

I remember seeing some previews online when it was about ready to be released but forgot all about it since then. This shit is so funny yet kinda gross in the gore dept. if you like any of these two guys stuff.

I like the idea behind of how they filmed it. Kinda hard to describe unless you watch it.

Planet Terror had a shitload of known actors for cameos (Bruce Willis, Sayid from Lost, Fergy, Josh Brolin, etc) the list goes on. The story poked fun at the whole zombie (aka sickos) situation like most zombie movies have. You can't help but laugh out loud with some of the stupid shit they did that of course, is so obvious. I thought it was neat to have Freddy Rodríguez (6ft under) be the main guy and Rose McGowen's role for it suited her.

Death Proof had Kurt Russell as being the bad guy which was amusing too to see him in this setting. One good thing about the movie is the muscle classic cars. What kinda threw me off a bit was that it felt like the first part of DP was in the 70's just cause of the vehicles being used, the music, the clothes but yet they were using reg. cell phones. The car scenes before that part ends had my jaw dropping on the gore scene. The 2nd part of the movie that takes place a few months later, I laughed my ass off as to the turn of events.

If you read the synopsis of what happens in both movies, it pretty much tells you everything that went on without having to watch it but you lose the artistic side of it by not seeing it for yourself.



Bubba was pretty impressed with NIN's new stuff that he said to go ahead and place an order for the cd (which won't arrive till April when it's finally released). When you do that, they send you a one time link to dl the full cd and the pdf file as well as some extras like wallpapers and icons. By burning all the music on disc instead of trying to find time to listen to it online, gave me time to really listen to it since it is instrumental. It's a pretty good cd, pretty sad when this cd is and sounds better than what Year Zero turned out. There are some parts that would sound good with vocals but no biggie.

I like the idea of what Trent did when it came to listening to the whole thing on the website or hearing just the first vol for free. I think some bands should do this. That way if it's a new band that ppl aren't sure of the sound, they can preview the full album and if you like it, buy it. OR if you aren't fond of the whole thing and just want certain songs, offer whatever song you want for a price.

Right now the only thing I have up for grabs is the wallpaper that came with the extras. Choose whatever size you want by the folders listed:




I'm sure peeps are getting tired of me talking about certain bands but when I'm hooked into something, it has a lasting affect for quite awhile. Anyways, I finally got around to watching what I had recorded of Later with Jools Holland (on the FUSE ch). Before I go any farther, I think that is a pretty good show. You can showcase about 4 bands in one show and each one gets to play two sets. Muse was on one time, damn good too!! I'll have to find that clip on YT since I deleted what I had recorded two months ago.

So this one that I taped had Foo Fighters. Their 2nd set just wowed me. It was only Dave playing the acoustic guitar for "Razor" and I got hooked on that song when they played it on the Skin & Bones cd. Something about the guitar chords for the song draws me to it. Speaking of Skin & Bones, they should've released a dvd for that live set.

I have made it my goal to see this band next time around DAMN IT!!!



It's not often I get in this mood but this past weekend, I wanted to write something for IchiHime but I just couldn't think of what to write about (nothing long mind you). I guess for all the hate still going around with Orihime recently makes me want to write something for her and Ichigo (yeah, still have a dislike for Ichigo but will write him for Orihime's sake). So here's where you peeps come in, or at least I hope someone will come through for me.

I need 5 prompts for IchiHime and while I'm at it, 5 prompts for RenRuki. I want to try and just stick with something small, like I used to write 120 words and still make sense. Or maybe even go as far as 500 like I did a few yrs ago for two things I wrote for GW.

Anyone can reply with 5 prompts or just 1 or 3, whatever comes to mind. I'll take as many as I can that way I have a variety to work with.
Today's Garfield was amusing, I like that "in your face" frame. Damn that cat has big feet but I guess he needs something to balance himself out for his belly.


I finally got around to watching the SpongeBob eps. "Atlantis SquarePantis". It was quite a weird eps. almost had a Willy Wonka feel to it (not including the singing too). The Atlantians were creepy in that *Blue Meanie sort of way and the Lord Royal Highness was voiced by David Bowie which amused me but his voice fit that creepiness of the character.

Makes me wonder who was smoking the crack when they came up with the idea for that eps.

*Blue Meanie as in the Beatles "Yellow Sub. cartoon movie bad guys"


Stephen King has a new book called Duma Key and from what I'm reading of the reviews on LJ, sounds like it's one of his best newer titles. Now I have to remind myself to call mom to see if her work got any in yet and send me my copy!


I decided to throw a Valentine Day challenge over at [ profile] renji_rukia for those interested here.


I can't remember if it was the end of Dec or early Jan when we got new tires on the vehicles at Sears so while we were waiting, we walked through the store and checked out their discounted X-mas stuff. The products on this one shelf had me giggling. They had "A Christmas Story" town pieces. They had Ralphie's house, the store, the flag pole incident (complete with the kid's tongue stuck to the pole), and a few others. Thought it was a cute set up. I'm sure if you google it, there should be pics somewhere.


Shows how much I'm slacking in the music dept. but I finally got the chance to hear the new Foo Fighters album "Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace" (since it came out last Sept.). Really good album but then again, I don't think there was ever a Foo album I didn't like. Now I regret not going to see them live when they came to Dallas last Wed. I hope they come back around cause I'd totally go. I bet they are pretty good live.

I also uploaded the video for "The Pretender". Dave looks a little...ummm...hagard? greasy? I don't know, the texture of his hair isn't all that great and he needs to trim his beard. But still awesome none the less. Overall, the vid is pretty neat, especially the explosion of water near the end.


We went riding with our group last Sunday (the last time we did this was I believe before Thanksgiving) and almost turned back to go home. First off, it was pretty foggy when we left the house. Then while driving to the meeting spot, the weather was just so icky miserable that in that bit of distance, my feet were already freezing and I was even wearing double socks. I'm actually surprised that bubba didn't change his mind about heading home. I do know that we both need decent boots. When we headed out on the road once everyone showed up, I swear the next stop couldn't come soon enough. Now I don't mind my hands getting cold cause it seems like they eventually get warm after I go through some numbness but my feet are a different story. I'm always afraid of getting frost bite and the last thing I need are my feet to give me problems. It took a bit to get some feeling back in them when we stopped. The fog was also supposed to lift around 9-10am but it didn't clear up till almost 11. Once we were on some back roads, the sun finally came out and it actually felt pretty decent, just sad that it took that long for it to warm up. Regardless if we get decent boots or not, I still want to look into getting some battery operated heated socks.


And that's my rundown for the week.
