Sup homies?  Just a heads up I will be out of town for a week on business so there may not be an update.  Anyway onto my thoughts.

 

First up, what the hell is wrong with NBC?  Pulling My Own Worst Enemy is a stupid move.  Let me back up.  The show has officially been cancelled.  They are filming the 9th episode now and it will be the last.  Hopefully they at least air it.  My biggest issue is the fact that Heroes is allowed to go on while this great show gets the ax.  True one of the episodes was kinda bad, but seriously, 3 out of 4 good is a, well good thing.  Anyway, my heart goes out to Christian Slater.  You should all know how awesome he is to me.

In other news, I am addicted to Gears of War 2.  I bought the limited edition since I got a free tank with it (awesome by the way).  I now have a cool golden lancer so I can look like a douche whenever I go to kill little bastards online.  The story was short but good and had some genuine heart.  I really felt for Dom.  Cole Train is still my favorite character.  Some of his lines are priceless but I really wish he had another rap song.  I still listen to that.  See you on the battleground kids.

Mirror’s Edge and Shaun White Snowboarding come out this week.  I’m buying them.  Don’t care how good/bad they are.  Mirror’s Edge is putting up some decent numbers so that looks promising.

There is a new Batman show on tomorrow night.  Batman: The Brave and the Bold.  Like in the comics when he teams up with other heroes.  The show looks pretty kiddy, but I don’t care.  It is Batman.  Yeah.

Not really happy about our election.  It’s funny because everyone thinks I voted for McCain because he was white.  Not the case.  I didn’t vote for Obama because of his health care and other BS he was trying to pass.  That and he is a fake person.  Just some cardboard cutout with no depth.  I mean he already took off his “plan” from his website.  He is more concerned about getting a dog than what to do with the country.

Personally I would have voted for Colin Powell.  I repsect him and everything he has done.  Didn’t have a choice in this election.  Had to vote for the “safe” bet.  Meaning I knew what I was getting.  We have no idea what is going to happen.  It will either be the greatest thing ever or a complete disasater.  I hope for the former but am planning for the later.

Enough politics. 

Can’t wait for Wall-e on DVD.  Loved that movie.  Really want to watch it again.

One last thing on Gears 2.  Matchmaking sucks.  I mean really terrible.  It takes like 5 or 10 minutes sometime to get a match.  Then there are those that leave because they don’t get the map or game type they want.  True, I don’t want to play submission all the time but honestly it is a game.  Plus the ranking system doesn’t work.  It is stupid.

Later

Random: 10/20

Posted by rapaleeman on October 20, 2008

I’m back.  Well back at work at least.  This will be a little different than the usual random.  Well not different, but maybe a little broader in scope if you will.

So I am currently abusing the buy 2 get 1 free deal from Toys R Us.  I bought Star Wars The Force Unleashed, Dead Space, and Saints Row 2.  Oddly, I am taking back SR 2 which I thought I would love.  After further thoughts it seemed stupid.  I’m trading it in for Midnught Club: Los Angeles.  I need me some racing son.

Dead Sapce is a great game.  I got nothing else.  It is awesome.  You buy now.

The Clone Wars TV show is actually not bad.  Better than I expected.  Animation, acting, stories, and overall feel of the show works.  It sucked as a movie, but in small 30 minute doses, me likey.

The Life and Times of Tim on HBO is frickin great.  So stupid yet so funny.  Everyone should be watching it.

Same with Knight Rider.  That show is so stupid it is funny as well.  Terrible acting, and stories, but for some reason I kept watching.  Mainly the car.  And Val Kilmer.  I like Val Kilmer.

Heroes is on again and honestly I am going to bitch about it again.  I am still watching it, but come on.  It can’t get stupider.  Can it?

I got a pair of Globe Fusions and they are extremely confortable shoes.  I kinda wish that maybe I got a size bigger, but they feel ok.  Lots of cushion.  Like a slipper.

I want to see Max Payne.  Bad review or not.  I still want to will see it.

Red Bull has a cola out now called, get this, Red Bull Cola.  It tastes like a Coke Slurpee melted down.  I like it.  Tastes yummy.

Friday Night Lights came back on TV a couple of weeks ago, but I had to download the episodes off of the net since I dumped Direct TV.  First episode was actually really good.  I got the other two to watch, but I have high hopes that I doubt will be shattered.  I legitimately care for the cast on the show, even though they keep changing the damn ages of the kids.  I thought Riggins was a Senior in the first season.  Maybe he failed a grade.

The Mentalist is a great show.  Very funny, witty, and above all just smart.  The producers and writers really do think outside the box.  Thank You.

Terminator got picked up for a full season.  Thank you Fox.

Terreance Howard is out as War Machine.  That sucks cause he is a perfect Rhodie.  However, Don Cheadle is a great actor who I like so we’ll see if this doesn’t bite the stingy production company in the ass.

Christian Slater is in My Own Worst Enemy tonight.  The first episode was great so here’s hoping.  I like Slater.  Ever have since I saw Kuffs.  Then I caught up with Pump Up The Volume, Hard Rain, Broken Arrow, and ,my favorite, Gleaming The Cube.  Yeah the skateboarding movie.  That movie is rad.  It’s ok to say rad since the movie was made in 1991.

And I am spent.  Time for a cigarette.

Why does Heroes suck so much?

Posted by rapaleeman on October 8, 2008

So in thinking of things to discuss I finally came to the conclusion that my opinion on the new season of Heroes need to be addressed.

After finally watching the last episode on my TiVo I can honestly ask: “What was it that made this show so great the first year?”.  The second season was lackluster, but I blamed that on the strike.  This season though is just boring.  It seems the writers are just trying to do things for shock value alone.

I mean seriously.  Silar as a dad?  Claire as a true villain?  Ando killing Hiro?  It just seems to me that the people on this show are looking for ways to basically flip flop everything and in doing such has completely changed how each character is or was.  I understand that characters need to evolve, but when basically every character is doing a switcharoo, then what was the point of the last two seasons?  The only truly interesting character is Peter and even he is an obvious archtype. 

I’m not sure what to think.  Should I give up on the show or maybe I should keep watching in hopes that this extremely obvious storyline takes a better turn and creates a continuity that works for the better.  I don’t know. 

I am really enjoy Prison Break a lot more this year which is the reason I am watching that and recording Heroes.  Didn’t think Prison Break would be so effin awesome this year but it has really rebounded.  Plus I get to check out all of the awesome 24 previews.

I will continue to watch it for now.  If it continues to suck, then I’m not sure how long I can keep up this facade.

Random side-note:  How terribly awesome is Knight Rider.  The show is just terrible, but when the music kicks in and Kitt starts driving I get a little stiff (if you catch my drift).  It’s weird but it is my quily pleasure of the season.

Ok so I know updates have been sporadic.  Sorry, life unfortunately takes a priority here.  So here be a random for yall yo.

So I finally go around to watching the premiere (2 episodes) of Heroes.  Wow, is it just me or is the show getting kinda lame.  I mean the plot is so predictable.  The future is the way it is because Peter came back in time.  He can’t fix it.  Didn’t the Terminator movies teach us anything?  Whatever.  This weeks looks kinda dumb too with Silar being a “good guy”.  I TiVo’ed (since when did TiVo change from a noun to a verb?) it so shut the hell up.  No spoilers!!!

Max Payne the movie still looks awesome.

I really want a new pair of shoes but can’t decide.  There are a ton of shoes out there.  I’m looking at a bunch right now.  The Supra Muska Skytops, Etnies Sal 23, DC Pro Spec, DC Chicane, IPath Reed, Vans, and even the dirt cheap Airwalk Rail.  There are more I have checked out.  The Nike SB Tre, Nike Hyperdunk, Adidas Skate, and the list goes on.  Don’t know what to get really.  I’m gonna end up with like 30 pairs of shoes I think.  Any suggestions are appreciated and considered.

I bought Iron Man on DVD from Target and got the 2-disc version in a replica of the Mark III’s helmet.  It is sweet.  Movie is great too.  I call that a win-win.

I want to buy a new video game, but nothing out really interests me enough to drop 60 bones.  Pure looked good, but I hear the rubberband AI sucks giant ones.  Star Wars which I was planning to buy is glitchy.  Hell I don’t know anymore.  Maybe I’m finally growing out of videogames.  Or maybe it is a dry spell.  Midnight Club LA, Need For Speed Undercover, Gears 2, and a bunch of other titles are coming so we’ll see.

Babylon A.D. the new Vin Diesel came and went.  It sucked, but for some reason I liked it.  Maybe it was because of the source material or the fact that the movie had a really good plot, just terrible execution.  Maybe I have this weird obsession with the Vin.  Not sure, but I liked it overall even though it was a terrible movie.  Kinda oxy-moronic I know.

Well, that’s all I got for now.  I’ll check in when I got something else going on.
