Back in Black - AC/DC

OK, it's not quite AC/DC, but it's pretty funny, and at a little over a minute doesn't wear out it's humor. I mean, anything with Beaker even acting a little serious is hilarious, and this is synced up pretty well with both him and the band.

R.I.P. Robin Williams

This caught me completely by surprise.  Like many kids from the 70s, I was there when Mork appeared on "Happy Days" and then was almost immediately spun off into his own series "Mork and Mindy".  Since it was set in Boulder (I've seen the "house" they lived in) almost every kid in the state watched the show just because of that.  Heck, some kids even got rainbow colored suspenders to wear.  Not anyone I know, of course...

the Beast is a jerk

And by Beast, I mean the one from 20,000 Fathoms, not Hank McCoy, who is a relatively nice guy (well, at least the last time I read a comic book about him he was).

I just watched the movie again, and it's always better than I remember it being.  There's no time wasted on talking heads, and the love story doesn't seem too forced, which is nice as well.  The actors are all good in their roles and the music gets the job done.

X From Outer Space Credits

Here are the international English credits to this fun movie. It has the oddest international dub I've ever heard. I'm sure it's not a William Ross production, as the voices are so weird and most of them rarely fit the actors. I mean, they just don't sound right.

Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension (2011)

When you are sick sometimes you watch some things you normally wouldn't watch.  Take this for example.  I was waiting for something to finishing cooking and this movie started up.  I've never seen an episode of the show, just a couple clips here and there, so I knew next to nothing about it.   Turns out it was a very entertaining little movie, even if they shouldn't have called it the "2nd Dimension" since it was more of an alternate reality sort of thing.  Of course, that's from years of Earth 1, 2, 3, S,  X, Counter Earth, etc.  So go figure.

"Spider-Man" (2002) Theatrical Trailer

I haven't watched this movie in several years, but I recently discovered a copy of it at my parents house. Yes, that is an odd place to find one. So I figured I'd give it a shot in the next few days, see how it's held up in 12 years. I really enjoyed watching it the first, even though I pretty much knew everything that was going to happen. The curse of reading comic books for 45 years, I suppose.

the Thing and the Guardians of the Galaxy

This was my introduction the the Guardians of the Galaxy.  Back then, this was Marvel Earth's future, after the Martians and Bionic Wars happened (this of course has changed since then).  As I love superhero teams, and ones I had never seen before this comic book hooked me.  It was actually the second part of the story, which I have finally read.  Ben, Cap and Sharon Carter have traveled to the year 3014 to help liberate New York from the Badoon, but they lack the numbers and get overwhelmed.
