"So morbid...a sentimental replica of a planet long since vanished..."
~ General Zod


Movin' on up...

...to a semi-detached, somewhat-deluxe apartment in the sky...

This blog is moving to Wordpress. I'll keep this one open, but please update your links.


Question to the Reader(s) of this blog...

Hi all,

I'm kind of disappointed with the lack of versatility of Blogger. I really want the ability to make certain entries private or password protected. Is Livejournal better? Help me!

I have some stuff I'd like to write about but that I don't want published on the vast interwebs for any Trekkies with red pubic hair to peruse with their one free hand...



Tuesday Friday Feast #189

What was your favorite cartoon when you were a child?
I enjoyed Battle of the Planets, but was more into Jem and the Holograms. FAG.

Pretend you are about to get a new pet. Which animal would you pick, and what would you name it?
I want a dog named Gozer.

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy getting all dressed up for a special occasion?

Main Course
What kind of music do you listen to while you drive?
James Bond stuff.

When was the last time you bought a clock? And in which room did you put it?
I bought a clock when I first moved into my new place and put it in the living room.



As if you needed a reason...

...to completely ignore the new big screen version of the anime classic, "Speed Racer," a more conclusive and immediate reason arises...



The Return of the Gremlins

If you ever wondered what happened to those scaley, lizard-lookin' things that you accidentally fed after midnight...they're in England, terrorizing BT customers. Check out this sweet ad.



The Phantom Zone - May 1, 2008

After a lovely trip to the zoo with J yesterday, I decided to banish a few more bloggers to an eternal living death in the Phantom Zone...

Romach is bound.
Dead Robot is a Bully.
A birthday was celebrated by Gooster...Happy B-Day! :)
Defying Despondency was caught.
A length bit of passiveaggressive.com(ness).
PS3Fanboy has a couple interesting entries about Burnout Paradise and
the Playstation Store.
ONTD updates us on a Dusty Springfield biopic (excited!),
Japanese Star Wars ads, and
Disney and Kathy Griffin falling out...
Finally, a review of one of my favourite eateries, Island Foods.



Some PS3 games I'm dying to get...

Grand Theft Auto IV - who isn't dying for this shit, huh?

Ghostbusters (just heard about this today - JEEBUS!!!)



Friday Feast #188

Name something you would categorize as weird.

Drinking coffee in the shower ;)

What color was the last piece of food you ate?

brown with off-white liquid (all bran and soy milk)

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy being alone?

Probably hovering around a 6, but I intend to get it higher.

Main Course

I will not vote for an American in 2008.

The Phantom Zone - April 24, 2008

I've decided to start posting some of the entries I find interesting that appear on the many blogs I read regularly. And by many, I mean millions and by read, I mean skim quite superficially. Nice pictures will always get my vote! ;)

Anyway...here we go...

Banished to The Phantom Zone this week:
