Nerd News in Brief

This weekend I took the wife to see the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie for our anniversary. It wasn't exactly her thang , per se, but she seemed to dig it. Unfortunately, the spirit of fair play reared its ugly head, and last night I was coerced into watching something called Pussy Cat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll. Not to sound crude or anything, but how a show with a filthy euphemism right there in the title could be so unabashedly boring is beyond me.

Apparently, to make it into a cheesy pseudo-burlesque pop act one has to cry. A lot. Or maybe that's just the reality show angle kicking in. I don't know.But I digress.

And now, on to the Nerd News in Brief.


Them's some big boys.

BTW I forgot to mention that you are free to use any of my Mediocre pics Z. ;)

Z. said...

Oh, shit! I totally meant to credit you on that, Denika. Sorry. :(

I'm pretty excited about both of the big shows. I know both Chozo and Hex are working as hard as they possibly can, so if anybody can help in any way possible, just let 'em know. On another note, I'm pretty excited about PAX and it being possibly the first MPFM show in a while. Steller and I are both really excited.

I'm going to see TMNT tonight so wish me luck, Z.

Z. said...

I'm pretty damned excited for you! And lemme know what you think of the movie, Steffo.

Denika said...

OMG that little yellow robot is teh win! Seriously, he looks just like a little person grooving. Not like those stupid dancing flowers you put on top of your speakers.

Z. said...

Yeah, Denika, Keepon is the shit! :D

Rai said...

XD that keepon is so fucking cute~~

ChurchHatesTucker said...

Congrats to funky (even though I feel silly for stating the obvious.)

For the record, that's a metric, not imperial, shit-ton of remixes. Caution, it's oddly addictive. I've got a complete playlist of Who Themes.

I saw Keepon over the weekend, but completely dismissed it. I'll have to revisit it.

Denika said...

Church,
You want to dismiss the Keepon at first, I know, but once you see how it moves you are hooked on its squidgy little marshmallow form! You have to watch it dance to Spoon, not the drum.

Z. said...

Fucking cute indeed, Rai. Fucking cute indeed!

Denika’s right, Church; you become enamored with his tiny, pudgy gyrations. And make sure you watch the Spoon clip. That one’s where he really gets his tiny robot freak on.

It was just Kenshin, Router. So, y’know, you prolly didn’t miss anything. ;)

That was a great read, Soc, and it rings true. Thanks for sharing!
