Rila Fukushima reminded me too much of my cousin.  He has a big ass egg-shaped head like that.  So, can't dig. 

For real. She looks like an alien, and I ain't talkin about the green Shatner-fondling variety.

Semi goes airborne and crashes into flames.

*NSFW language*
Skip to 3:20. Not much happens on the video before or after the event, but it's crazy. The semi driver and his son survived with only minor injuries, amazingly enough.

Alex and Luna, Lunar Silver Star Story. Being in love since they were kids, knowing they were always gonna be together, and then Luna's kidnapping and Alex becoming the right hand of the goddess to save her...and the secret of her story altogether...man it's touching even if it's cheesy as all fuck. All the character's love stories were pretty nice, but Alex and Luna...I'd like to meet a guy who wouldn't want this to happen to him. Pretty sure every guy in existence has a fantasy along these lines.

As far as Romance is concerned I must agree that Lunar nails it! But to expand, its less the exclusive Alex/Luna love I appreciate and more of the romance dynamic in the series. Jessica and Kyle in particular really entertained me but it was the Hiro and Lucia relationship in Eternal Blue that I was truly able to relate to a bit more than any other romance dynamic. While Alex/Luna and Hiro/Lucia both illustrate an idealistic love, I always felt like Hiro was "fighting against the odds" a bit more when it came to winning Lucia's affection (which proved endearing) whereas the Alex/Luna thing was predistined and illustrated Alex's dedication to his love. In other words, Alex fights to protect indomitable love whereas Hiro is fighting to attain it.

I agree. Hell, the whole EB epilogue was about Hiro doing whatever he could (against all odds) to find a way to get to Lucia. I'm not a big fan of love stories in video games, but the Lunar series did a damn good job.

I think Vaughn actually did well in Swingers and Made, and I like Wedding Crashers and Dodgeball. I guess that's just me, though...

Also fuck wisdom teeth.

Oh and Akanbe?  I had to have seven wisdom teeth removed some years ago.  I feel your pain. :(

7?? I know the numbers vary, but you can have 7? Yikes, man. I thought 4 at a time was bad enough...


Thankfully, the healing process is just a few weeks (although, the threat of dry socket is a bit intimidating). In the experience of my wife and myself, it's the results of the surgeon stretching the shit out of your jaw that is the worst part. Mine has never been the same since...

Saw Bad Teacher for the first time the other night. What a... weird movie. Almost all of the characters are... well, weird. Especially Timberlake's character (although the orgasm face he makes during a certain scene is both awesome and hilarious). I should expect such strangeness from a Jake Kasdan flick, but these people are offbeat, for sure. Anyone who has seen this will know what I mean. Don't get me wrong. It's not weird to the point that you're uncomfortable or anything. The movie is funny. Not side-splittingly funny, but it has its moments.

Anyway, I'm not a big fan of Diaz, but she does a great job here. Pulls off her role well. Lucy Punch also does well as a quirky goodie goodie teacher. Her mannerisms are awesome. I also think she's pretty hot... in her own way. Jason Segel's character is the funniest by far (through excellently witty dialogue), and also seems to be one of the more normal people in this flick.

In the end, I enjoyed it. Can I recommend it...? Not sure. There's nothing that ground breaking, or memorable about it. However, it's pretty funny at times, and is well acted. It's definitely not awful (lol).

Thought about it for years but can't decide on anything.

Same dilemma for years, as well. I like tats, and I especially love them on women, but I just can't think of anything I want to be sporting for the rest of the my life... I think it's that "hurdle" of the first one you have to get over. Everyone I've talked to that has ink has said that once you pop, you can't stop.

Man, I have memories of playing DT at my buddy's house back in the day (I never owned it myself). Can't remember if I ever beat it... but I sure as hell enjoyed it. This is excellent news. This will be a day 1 purchase for me.

I'm glad to see they are looking to do Cn'D next. Like others have said, that one is also a classic. On that note, I seem to remember the Darkwing Duck game as being frustratingly difficult. Or am I thinking of something else...?

Wrapped up Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood over the weekend. I can now safely say it is miles above the original anime. The wife and I enjoyed it very much.
First off, the ending is SO much better. I HATE the original anime's ending. Brotherhood wraps things up rather nicely.

As I've said before, the pacing with Brotherhood feels a bit rushed and unstable in some parts, but I'm sure that's the anime crew fitting in all they could from the manga (which I have never seen/read, honestly). The goofy slapstick stuff tones down a bit near the end of the series, which was nice. I know I've kinda complained about the amount of slapstick before (and there is a lot), but looking back, it was at least never used at an inappropriate time.

Not much more I can say that I didn't say before. Don't want to say too much, as I don't want to spoil anything for people who haven't seen it yet.
I do like some story elements from the original anime, and it is definitely worth watching, but Brotherhood is a big step up, IMO.

Fresh Prince of Tidal Tempest

A damn fine mash up, if you ask me.

Got a slim instead!

Nice. Enjoy.

I just wanted to mention here that if anyone else is looking for a new PS3 right now, Best Buy is selling 250GB Uncharted 3 bundles for $220. Today and tomorrow only. I believe they are the newest "super slim" design.

EDIT: Sorry. Forgot to do the courteous thing and add a link.

I vote for the 2nd. It's more intense and engaging.
