Bullet Sunday 128

Posted on Sunday, April 19th, 2009

Dave!It's a beautiful day this Bullet Sunday... which I spent indoors working my ass off and re-watching Veronica Mars on DVD. Man how I miss that show.

• Follow Me. What am I missing with the whole "FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER" deal? It seems everyone and their dog is whoring themselves out to get more followers in the social media game and I don't understand why. Ashton Kutcher has been all over the place with his march to a million followers, but but seeing an ad for him on a local billboard while I was driving into Wenatchee the other day shocked the hell out of me...

Follow Ashton Billboard

For a Hollywood star with movies to promote and stuff to sell, I get it. You want to be relevant in a whole new realm of influence with the populace. But everyday average people? What do they get out of it? Who cares how many followers you have? Will my life suddenly become more fabulous if I get a thousand followers? Oh well, 95% of the stuff on Twitter is crap or spam anyway. The more the merrier.

&bull Dumbass Quotient. Speaking of Twitter spam... are people so fucking stupid that they are still clicking on links for generic viagra and penis enlargers and other moronic crap? I'd imagine they are, because why else would spammers waste their time of something that doesn't work? It's getting to the point where I can't even blame spammers anymore... they're just trying to make a buck. It's the total dumb-fucks that actually buy stuff from spammers that are the real problem. If people weren't so astronomically brain-dead as to make spamming profitable, we wouldn't have a problem. I just loathe these stupid-ass people who fuck up the internet for the rest of us... they shouldn't even BE on the internet in the first place.

&bull Undead Poultry. LeSombre nominated me for a Zombie Chicken award, which comes with all kinds of rules you have to follow. Since I'm not much of an award guy and didn't follow any of them, I am expecting to be attacked by zombified poultry any minute now...

Zombie Chickens

• On Film. With all the flying I've been doing lately, I've been watching quite a few movies. I even made it to the theater on Friday, which was the second time this year! Monsters vs. Aliens - So good it's good. Crank 2: High Voltage - So bad it's good. The Spirit - So bad it's bad. Twilight - So very bad it's horrendous. The Day The Earth Stood Still (2008) - So far beyond bad that we need to come up with new words to describe just how fucking awful this piece of shit "remake" is. There are some great-looking flicks coming up but, given my luck lately, I'm a little bit afraid to go see them.

• Flame War. In general, I find "humor" sites to be pretty much hit-or-miss. But every once in a while I come across something so incredibly genius that I can't help but link to it. College Humor has a brilliant parody of the Billy Joel song We Didn't Start The Fire called We Didn't Start The Flame War (language makes this one not quite safe for work). Once I got past the hilariousness of the video, I kept watching again and again because of how frickin' beautiful the animation is. All the words come alive as they hit the screen, and somebody put in a lot of time to make that happen. Not bad for a humor video...

We Didn't Start the Flame War

We Didn't Start the Flame War

We Didn't Start the Flame War

But it's the inclusion of the ROFL COPTER that seals the deal...

We Didn't Start the Flame War

And now it's back to work. I should be able to go for another hour before dropping into a coma.

    I love Veronica Mars and I think another season with her in the FBI training program would have been great. I wish the new Cupid was good. I am very upset with Rob (not the singer) Thomas

  2. Avitable says:

    I tried to watch the first Crank, but had to stop at the sex scene. It was just too stupid for me to spend any more time. I’m guessing the second one is more of the same.

    College Humor occasionally does some pretty good stuff, and that video ranks up there as some of their best work.

  3. kilax says:

    What is “twitter”? What does it mean to “follow” someone?

    Ha ha, just kidding. I don’t use twitter, so I really don’t understand it, but it sounds like some people are just craving more attention ;)

  4. LeSombre says:

    Oh, I knew you were not an “award guy”, but I knew something good would come out of this anyways. I absolutely love your zombie chickens!!!

    Shirtify please?

  5. Hilly says:

    Like you said, celebrities are one thing…it is their jobs to make people like them. However, where regular folks are concerned? I’ve always been under the impression that a friend or follower that you’ve had to beg for isn’t one worth having anyway.

  6. martymankins says:

    That video was very funny and so well done. And now I need to know more about how that was made, now that you filled me in that it was all rendered.

  7. delmer says:

    Not long ago a guy I know told me he was considering buying something someone had spammed him with. My first thought was, “It’s people with that attitude that make spamming prfitable.” My second was, “You’re an engineer … I expect you to know better.” What I said was, “Really?”

  8. Tracy Lynn says:

    If I do not get a zombie chicken shirt, I may die.

  9. Oh I loved Monsters vs Aliens. Much better than I expected it would be. I saw the preview for the new Crank movie and just laughed my arse off. It’s a comedy right?

  10. ASCII art reminds me of the old dial-up BBS days (well, that was ANSI art, but still)… Yes, I am old… And nerdy.

    Re: 2008 ‘Earth Stood Still”
    I was so glad that I ‘ducked-in’ for the last 30 min at the multiplex and was able to avoid paying 13 bucks for that whole piece of crap. I think the words to describe it perhaps might be: “an example in how to totally f*ck-up a timeless classic”
    It is so absolutely lame that 20th Century Fox Entertainment is actually including the 1951 original, free, with the DVD – in order to get people to buy it.
    The 2008 version rates right up there with the 1999 suck-ass remake of my favorite horror film “The Haunting” from 1963.
    OMG! I just realized that Robert Wise directed both originals! Just shows what a good director can really do.

  12. Hmmm…if you’re near Wenatchee, then I’ll be in your neck of the woods in a couple of months. I’ll be spending some time with a friend in Quincy. I’m guessing it’ll be quite the culture shock from L.A.?

  13. Hey. Don’t smack down my Twilight. Just sayin’. :) And I hear Zombie Chickens are steroid- and antibiotic-free.

  14. whall says:

    Not only do you have Zombie chickens, you have neon glow zombie chickens.

    I’m pretty sure Billy Mays sells Neon Glow Zombie Chicken Sunglasses. I could send you a link if interested.

  15. Dave2 says:

    My favorite zombies are those who became zombies because of a nuclear accident involving radioactive waste.

    Radioactive zombies FTW!
