Movie Reviews

Crank This movie kicks ass. Cartman would REALLY love this movie, except then he'd spend a whole episode of South Park shooting himself up with drugs and pretending to be Jason Statham. The movie starts fast and jerky, with hectic cuts and shaky camera creating a really uneven mood that's annoying at first until you realize that's exactly what the filmmakers wnated to do. Then the movie grabs you and takes you along for the adrenaline crazed ride. I think Statham is an awesome actor, but after watching this, I understand why he…Read more …

Battlestar Galactica – Wow!

Don't take the feint, folks. The finale of Battlestar Galactica supposedly showed you 4 regulars who think they're Cylons... but they're not. THINK: Everyone of them LOVED a character who is now DEAD or GONE. They were hearing broadcasts of music from Earth thru some telepathic connection to the Cylon's they loved... a telepathic link that has been proven (Baltar and Six). Starbuck? CLYON. Lee Adama? CYLON. Starbuck says "I've been to Earth. I'm going to take us there." US WHO? I'll hold out the possibility that it's Daddy Adama who's the Cylon,…Read more …

I LOVE these moments…

This morning, I went out to the desk and there's an angry Chinese man with a strong accent demanding that I provide his son with headphones. Then, I couldn't understand what he said as he was pointing at his daughter. I said "I'm sorry, what else?" and she's shoving a library card at me. While he's trying to say something, I indicate by pointing from my ear to my mouth that I'm deaf, and cannot understand him. This works for most people, but... not this guy. So anyhow I assume she's asking how…Read more …

Welcome to mcspoo.com

After several years of hosting a GreyMatter blog within my TLN webspace, I decided it was time to remove my presense from TLN. mcspoo.com will now act as my primary webspace for the forseeable future. I imagine this will make J. Michael Straczynski happy. He can buy the spoo.net domain from me now if he likes. When a rapper add "MC" to his/her/it's name, the letters are intended to mean "Master of Ceremonies". As I am the Master of no Ceremony, I take the MC to mean "Master of Computers". Soon, you will…Read more …

random thoughts

What if there is no Severus Snape? What if Snape is really... Harry Potter. It would explain why Dumbledore trusts him implicitly. I'm bored with professional wrestling again. I feel like a savant when I watch it, because no matter what they try to do, I know exactly what's going to happen before the bell rings. There's no innovation, and the wrestlers no longer have the desire to do anything innovative. Maybe I'm just getting too old for that crap. of course, if I was too old for that crap, I wouldn't be…Read more …
