so, anyone going to Origins this year?  Last year there was an attempt to organize a get together but RL issues ruined most of the con for me, but this year I should be available to meet and greet, probably in the evening after 8 or 9 (I'm not sure of my schedule and can't look it up on the site).

Alright, this year you have no excuse to avoid the chicago gang, you dork.  We'll be at the Drury hotel attached to the convention center.  Zarathud and Seppe will be getting there Thursday afternoon, while I'll be arriving either Thursday night or early Friday morning.  We're all scheduled for the Arkham Horror game at noon on Saturday and the Car Wars game at 6 pm that same day, so try to get into them if you want to play with us losers.

I'll PM you with a RL name so you can look us up at the hotel Friday.

correct me if i'm wrong, but I think the 80gb version is smaller.  however, you can probably get a 30gb version dirt cheap if you look around online.

So I'm working in the server room earlier today and I decide that with the weather getting hotter and hotter lately, it's time to pull the industrial fan out of storage and get it set up. 

I head down to storage and lug the dang thing up to the office on the third floor.  As I'm installing it, the new secretary walks by and says, "What'cha ya doing?".

Being a complete jackass and totally devoid of the voice of reason that most humans have, I reply, "Getting everything set up for my remake of the White Snake video for Here I Go Again."

She says, "...huh?" 

"I'm playing Tawny Kitaen while Len over in accounts receivable is playing David Coverdale.  He's pulled his Prius around front to the delivery entrance and I'll be using that for my 'writhing scenes'."

At this point I can see that she's quite uncomfortable with this conversation and is looking towards the exit like a Guantanamo Bay prisoner looking at the world beyond the fence.

"I couldn't get a smoke machine on such short notice, but I'm thinking if we do this near the building's designated smoking area, we'll get the same effect..."

At this point one of the bosses comes around the corner and she strikes up a conversation with him as quickly as she can, leaving me with my fan.

...in hindsight, maybe I should've gone with Poison's "She's My Cherry Pie"?

I guess most of his stuff was before my time and Clash of the Titans didn't have a big impact.

On some related news, I read today from several sources that there will be a 'Clash Of The Titans' remake, scripted by Lawrence Kasdan... who's also writing the live-action Robotech film. There will also be a 'Near Dark' remake.. And if all these news weren't painful enough to get, Marty and Kroff are seriously threatening to make a HR Puffenstuff live action movie.. and another for Sigfrid And The Sea Monsters.

Hollywood--where creative cinema goes to die.

while i wish they'd try to make original stuff, hiring kasdan could be the only saving grace for these remakes.  the man has had more hits than misses in his long career.

Holy Crap!  I feel similar to hepcat.  As a young movie geek, Stan Winston, along with Rick Baker, Rob Bottin, Greg Cannom on makeup effects or ILM, Boss Films, or Dreamquest Images on visual effects was enough to get me to watch just about any movie. 

Don't forget John Dykstra, Richard Edlund, Ray Harryhausen, etc

Never was a big Harryhausen fan.  I guess most of his stuff was before my time and Clash of the Titans didn't have a big impact.   Never a huge fan of Dykstra other than his work on Star Wars obviously.  Edlund formed Boss Films, of course who were quite a rival for ILM for a time. 

i wish there was an internet forum version of the spit take as that's what happened when i read the line "Never was a big Harryhausen fan" in your post.  harryhausen was a god, man!!   icon_eek

Saw it on Saturday and enjoyed it.  It was good, matinee escapism.  The amount of action was good but wasn't bogged down by too much self-awareness (the problem with the first one, imho).

Although, maybe I'm just remembering it badly, but I could have sworn that Lee's Hulk looked less "cartoony" than the new one.    icon_confused

Also, after countless times seeing it in the movies, I've come to the conclusion that if you wear a baseball cap with the bill pointing forward, that automatically means you're trying to hide.  From now on I'm just going to call the police if I see someone wearing a b-cap in that manner....

it all depends on whose tit you want to suck from.  MS's tit gives bitter beer, like Natural Light, but Steve Jobs gives sweet vanilla flavored goodness, like ambrosia.

You might want to look around and see if there's any news of an updated Zune coming out soon.  IIRC it's been awhile since they updated the hardware.

the 80 gig came out not that long ago (last summer, if i'm not mistaken) so i doubt we'll see an updated zune anytime soon.

I honestly doubt that Microsoft would bail on the Zune.  It's their only real foothold in the lucrative mp3 market and I think we all know that Microsoft would chew its own arm off before giving up on a chance to make some cash.   icon_wink

I love my Zune.  It's a 1st gen and I got it cheap but it's been a real tank.  It's been dropped, left in a hot car all day and used on many bike rides and it's held up just fine.  The only real complaints I have are the aforementioned annoying software used for transferring files to it (although nothing will ever be worse than itunes, imho) and some bad firmware updates that caused the thing to just plummet in battery life.  They fixed the latter problem in a later firmware update, though.

Update:  I got my beloved Matrix back Friday afternoon.  The dealership put in a whole new engine.  They also put in a new battery while they were at it since mine was supposedly not holding a charge very well.  Total cost out of pocket:  120 dollars.  The rest was covered by the insurance agency. 

I do have to say though, I get the distinct feeling that my dealership took the insurance company for every penny they could get.  The service manager at the dealership seemed to almost take pride in the number of things he got them to pay for.   icon_confused

Hepcat vs. The Angry Sushi Chef

So last night, in between marathon Law and Order: SUV viewings (seriously, does TBS, USA and TNT play ANYTHING ELSE during the week???), I decided I was going to get sushi for dinner.  I head to the hotel after work to change and then drive down the street to a Japanese restaurant I'd noticed earlier that day on my way to the client site.

The place is empty except for one young asian gentlemen waiter and an elderly asian woman behind the sushi counter.  I tell the young waiter that I'm there for take out and he gives me a list of items to order from.

I check off a spider roll, a spicy tuna roll and some rice.  I then hand it to the elderly asian woman behind the counter.  She snaps it out of my hands and throws it down on the counter in front of her.  I don't think anything of it and go back to reading my paper.  About 10 minutes pass and nothing's happening.  After another couple of minutes the elderly asian woman starts screaming like a banshee at the young guy.  They're screaming at each other in Japanese at the top of their lungs.  I'm only a couple of feet away so I move to a table to get away from it.  Eventually the waiter comes over to my table and just stands there apologizing and motioning at the woman.  I don't understand what's going on so I just nod like a moron the whole time.

After another minute or two I stand up and motion that I'd like to pay for my take out order in the vain hope that it'll hurry up my food.

"But you didn't get anything?" the waiter replies in a puzzled tone.

"What about the sushi I ordered?"  I say, indicating the sushi counter and the elderly harpy standing there in what I swear is a defensive lineman attack stance.

"She quit!  Sorry!"  he says.

Now I'm utterly confused.  It seems that the harpy from hell has gotten so angry about something that she's quit.  However, her version of quitting doesn't involve storming out.  Instead it seems to exhibit itself in much the same way a perturbed bull would if constantly prodded with a long stick. 

"But...I...what...but..." I have no idea what to say, so I start to leave.   Then I hear this soul shattering shriek from the soul sucking she beast behind the counter. 

"Wait!  She says she make you sushi now!" the waiter says, stopping me before I can make my way out.

"But...I....what....but...."  I got nothin' at this point.

Silently, I walk back to my stool at the sushi counter like a death row inmate heading to ol' sparky.  The waiter brings me a coke and I just sit there staring at it while Dracula's grandmother begins some of the most violent sushi prep I've ever encountered.

Eventually, she tosses my order in a bag and thrusts it at me.  I pay and head back to the hotel...


...and damn if that wasn't the best damn raw fish and soft shell crab I'd ever had.
8512  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Notes from the South on: June 10, 2008, 12:11:54 AM
A last minute client issue has sent me merrily on my way to South Carolina all this week.  As I lay here in my Comfort Inn hotel room, nearly catatonic from an overdose of Arby's Sauce and Curly Fries, watching The Astronaut Farmer on HBO and wondering what in the hell happened to Billy Bob Thornton's career; I can't help but draw some conclusions about this great state.

1) After a 2 1/2 hour drive on I-85 South I've come to the conclusion that South Carolina is a state built almost entirely by the income generated by Arby's franchises and fireworks stores.  Between here and Charlotte, North Carolina there are about 274 Arby's restaurants and 321 Fireworks stores.  Getting all hopped up on horsey sauce and attacking neighbor's with Roman Candles has to be a real issue around these parts.

2) Why are there so many churches on the side of the highways around here?  I envision the following event happening:

Dad:  Well, that was a great family vacation!  I really enjoyed...KIDS, FIRST UNITED BAPTISTS ON THE RIGHT! 
Mom:  Let's get the kids baptized, honey!
Dad:  Great ideal!  And there's no real need to stop!  I'll just slow down and Jenny and Robbie can crack their windows and jump.  TUCK AND ROLL FOR JESUS, KIDS!
Mom:  We'll bring you curly fries and M-80's on our way back to get you!

3) I don't care who you are.  103 degrees is too damn hot for anyone.  If you say you enjoy this type of weather, I now call you out as a spawn of Satan and will advise a roadside church of your existence.  Expect to be attacked by the faithful any day now.

Okay, okay...i admit this countryside is damn beautiful.  I give you that.  But 103 degrees????   Seriously???

Anyway, I want you all to remember me in your prayers this week.  I'm less than one block from an Arby's and my Jamocha milkshake addiction is coming back in spades right now.  There's a good chance that the next missive I submit around these parts will be from the Betty Ford Rehab Center's dessert addiction wing....

There is a drive-in in West Chicago called the Cascade Drive-in that my wife wants to go to.  That isn't the same one, is it?

I don't think so.  The one I was referring to is off Cicero near the Midway Airport.  I'm not even sure it's still open.  However, the one time I went to see films there it was like driving into a Crips vs. Bloods gathering.

The Cascade appears to be a good one.  I checked this site and it draws generally favorable reviews.  I may have to check it out myself.

The cynic in me says that the previews are ALL the funny parts in the movie, and you'd be better off watching them over and over.

PS Ford Fairlane is a closet classic!

I watch Cabin Boy every Thanksgiving.  "Wanna buy a monkey?" kills me every time...

You could also try the approach that one of my friends used and proved successful. Go ahead and invite him to live with you, while he's asleep sedate him so that you can move him to a room which you plan to imprison him in, keep his legs and arms bound so that he can't move too much. Feed him, whatever, but keep him clean of drugs for 30 days. He won't go to the police after because he'll be thankful that you helped him with his problem.

Jesus H. Christ!  Someone here has read John Fowles' The Collector WAY too many times...

Im there Friday night.  I dont like Adam Sandler, but this movie looks sooo freaking ridiculous I have to see it.  The no arms push up in the preview practically had me spitting my drink out when I saw that.

After seeing the forum name "dback" I assumed that you are a fan of the Diamondbacks and may even live in Arizona.  I then checked your location and saw "Surprise, AZ".  I'm not sure why, but anytime I see the name "Surprise", whether it be on a document, on a map, or noted as the location where one of my techs is doing fieldwork, I always need to yell "SURPRISE!!!!!" rather than merely stating the town's name in a normal tone.  I can't seem to help myself.  Carry on.

I'm the same way with the word "Lambada".  Everytime I hear or see that word I have to add "The Forbidden Dance!" in a creepy ass tone.  Go figure....
