The Mystery Men

Found these pics on google. I'm about to scour every single batman comic I have (about 400 issues) and look... I invite you to do the same thing.
These two cops seem to be in everything. Both marvel AND DC. Time for a scavenger hunt. WHO'S WITH ME?!?!?!?!Here's the kicker. As you can tell, these comics are from batman and spiderman. both from two different companies (DC and Marvel). both from two different writers. Different artists. Different cities... Different EVERYTHING... so who the hell are these two dudes?!?!?!?!

my weekend

That thing we did Saturday morning? It was magical and awesome and amazing. She actually tired out before I did, it lasted so long. Truth be told, I would have waited longer, but She didn't seem to mind and she's told me she can't wait for round two.
I was afraid that, after we did it, It would become one of those relationships where everything was boring, but not the case. She smiles just as much... she laughs just as much. If anything has changed, it's the fact that we're more comfy with each other now. We can get away with more things such as throwing pillows at each other. we hold hands in front of everyone. we say i love you in front of strangers without care. Sex changed us... but it changed us for the better. it made us more of a couple. And i love that.
She told me she wants to marry me. I can't wait until college is over. I swear to everything that is holy, unholy, invisible, magic, and truth... I am going to marry that woman.
My first goal when i started at NoVA was to make the gaming interest group a club.
mission accomplished.
my second goal was to win jenny from the clutches of a rapist lying abusive ginger idiot.
mission accomplished.
my third goal was to beat the living shit out of the same idiot when he threatened her and lied about her on facebook.
mission has yet to be accomplished. not sure it ever will be.
goal four - graduate
will be accomplished
goal five. marry jenny.
I already know her answer.

God damn i love that woman.

Why "I Am Legend" Sucks

In this adaptation of Richard Matheson's classic horror novella, Will Smith plays Doctor Robert "Legend" Neville, the last man alive in a city overrun with CGI vampire mutants.
In the film's original ending, Neville is trapped as vampires break through his barricades and infiltrate his hideout (who would have guessed that locking yourself in an enclosed space in the middle of a city full of vampires would turn out to be a bad idea?). Then he blows them up.
Yeah. In the original, the vampires are revealed to be thinking, benevolent creatures who were merely attempting to rescue a vampire that Neville had captured earlier.
Not only does the book end in a similar way, but it in fact was the entire freaking point of the book. That's where the title "I Am Legend" came from, Neville's realization at the end that the vampires were the good guys and that he was the monster of their legends, since he had been mindlessly driving stakes through their heart at every opportunity. Maybe a title like So I'm The Asshole would have been clearer.
Because test audiences apparently didn't like the original ending, the studio opted to go with a new one in which Neville fights back against the vampires to protect his new allies. He does so by igniting a grenade about two inches from their face, destroying the once-safe stronghold and severely injuring his companions. It should also be noted that going by the original ending, Will Smith just murdered scores of reasoning creatures who were attempting to rescue a little girl.
This brings up the other problem, which is that all of the little hints that had been inserted along the way indicating the creatures had intelligence (the complex traps they set, the same creature reappearing in some kind of leadership role) are completely ignored. In the new ending, the vampires are mindless savages with no other purpose but general horror movie mayhem.
Perhaps the saddest thing about all this is that it shows that no one involved really believed in the message of the final product. They didn't produce a film in order to convey any kind message, they just strung together a bunch of cool scenes and called it a movie. One more reason why audience feedback isn't always the best guide, as anyone who has read YouTube comments will happily tell you.
The original ending is available as a bonus scene on the DVD, where it is advertised as the "controversial original ending." Yes, coming to a peaceful reconciliation with your enemies is now more controversial than blowing them right the fuck up.

Why Idiots Love Megan Fox

Megan Fox fell from grace with the great Transformers debacle. How, you ask? Well I will tell you, kind reader. Consider:
Michael Bay, director of Transformers, pretty much FOUND Megan Fox. Sure, she was acting... sure, she was attractive in some sense of the word. But before Michael Bay she was absolute piss. Just nothing. Her career was virtually nonexistent. Tinier, even, than Vanilla Ice's. He signed her onto the Transformers movies which, for her career, was the equivalent of Mark Hamill and Star Wars. So what does she do? She acts like a stuck up bitch. She claims that Michael Bay is a horrible director (He's not bad... he's just different. Instead of relying on great acting, he relies on great effects). None the less, he made her a huge star and she spit all over him for it.
Michael Bay filmed the second transformers in Egypt. He decided that, since they were there for a few days more than needed, he would take the cast and crew out to the pyramids and a few days of fine dining and awesome egypt tours. On his expense, of course because that's what good directors do. Megan Fox cussed Michael bay out in front of EVERYONE because how DARE he take her into the heat to see the fucking pyramids.
So... Michael bay told her to fuck off.
And that was that... a few movies after that, all of which utterly sucked, but still... her career was over.
So what the hell is this that i see? A new Megan Fox movie? do people not get it? Megan Fox sucks. She's a horrible actress. AND SHE HAS TOE THUMBS!!!!
None the less, they're putting her in this new movie "Passion Play". And because nothing else worked in the past, they're pairing her with a huge super star, Bill Murray. Hoping that people will see the movie because Bill Murray and mickey Rourke in it is one thing... but hoping that guys will decide megan Fox is hot again... well that's another thing.
So Hollywood... please... stop trying to glorify the female skeletor and her thumbs which look like toes. She's a bitch and an idiot and has feet instead of hands. that is all.
