"EPIC" BIG BUDGET FILMS THAT JUST SUCKED HARD

Hey moviegoers.. remember how the newspaper ads and previews would tell us all about these epic movies that were coming soon to a theatre near us, and it starred (huge celebrity #1) and (huge celebrity #2) and (huge celebrity #3) and was based on the best-selling book by (famous author) and directed by (renowned director), and was the greatest sci-fi/romance/drama/war pic/western/etc. film ever produced?  Well, once it hit the theatres, and like mindless sheep or brainless chickens, we all flocked to see it... and it sucked much ass.

One such colossal letdown has got to be DUNE.  It was so expensive, and of course was based on the successful sci-fi novel by Frank Herbert.  And it was boring as hell.  I'm curious to see how much money they lost on that turkey.

What are your nominations, folks?

INSECTS/ANIMALS THAT SCARE THE CRAP OUTTA YOU

Hey guys.  I thought this might be neat for other folks to talk about because insects and animals don't scare me.  Heck, I get along with animals better than I do people.  Many insects really tick me off at their presence, because they are NOT ALLOWED in my house.  Ants and spiders make me mad.  It's funny; they hear me yell in anger when I see them, and they scurry for a hiding place.  They don't usually succeed.

What ones make you practically wet yourself, or scream like a little girlie?

WHATCHA GONNA BE FOR HALLOWEEN???

Hey guys.  What do you plan on going as?  Come on, even at your age, admit it, you like to dress up on Halloween.  You may not go get candy anymore (apart from buying it for the kids and eating what's left) but you sure can put on a mean costume!  What are you planning to be this Halloween?

Me personally, I can't go in costume ON Halloween because I work at a hospital, on that day.  But Saturday I'll go in costume.  A couple ideas I have are:

Jack In The Box (the guy in the suit with the big white head from the restaurant commercials)

Dirk The Daring (from the videogame Dragon's Lair)

Or I might just go as either Michael Meyers (from the Halloween films) or Luigi (from Mario Bros.)

Or I might think of something at the last second, like Optimus Prime!!

PRICELESS FUNNY TV SHOW DIALOGUE

Hey gang.

Here's where you can post great dialogue from some of the funniest tv programs you've ever seen.  As old or as new a program as you like it.  With my avatar being Al Bundy, you can guess I'll throw in some Married... With Children dialogue on occasion.

Let the laughs begin!!!

WHAT SONGS DO YOU WISH WERE KARAOKE-IZED?

Erm.. this one needs explanation, I think.

What songs do you wish were available for karaoke?  Or are you not sure if they are, and haven't seen them in books at your favorite bars?  I could probably tell you if they are or aren't.  I've got some nice, long lists of songs I know aren't available yet, and I can't wait for them to become available.

DUMBEST ANIMALS AND INSECTS

Hey folks.

What do you feel are the dumbest animals and insects on the planet?  If a particular experience with said critters led you to your negative opinion of them, please tell.  Or if you just know of their stupid habits, tell why you think their IQ is below even their tiny cranial capacity.

I know they are SUPPOSED to be stupid compared to us.  But some critters just seem to go way below our low expectations, and leave us standing there, paralyzed in disbelief at their moronic actions, or just make us laugh at their sheer ineptitude.

GREAT PLAY-BY-PLAYS YOU CAN REMEMBER

Hey sports fans.

Try to remember the best play-by-plays from either radio or tv and recite them as best as you can.  If you like, name the announcer, date, and the specific event.

Example:

"Here we go, the inbound to McGinness, drives, stops, pops, shoots, no good, AND THE GAME IS OVER!!!! THE PORTLAND TRAILBLAZERS HAVE WON THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!  THEY ARE, NUMBER ONE!

--Bill Schonely, Radio play-by-play announcer, Portland Trailblazers, 1977 at Memorial Coliseum

HAVE YOU EVER WATCHED HENTAI?

Hey folks.

For the uninitiated, "hentai" is anime with sexual themes more explicit than mainstream anime, going further than simple nudity and moving on to actual sex.  This can range from fairly softcore to all-out hardcore porn. 

Me personally, I find it kind of funny in the "so stupid it's funny" category.  To see such sugary-cute characters with eyes the size of softballs, necks the width of a chair leg, breasts the size of Texas, and gaping mouths the size of the Grand Canyon getting deflowered cracks me up with its absurdity.  The animation is otherwise done well, at least, and is very colorful.  On a very rare occasion, a hentai is done tastefully and actually has a good storyline.

Have you seen any of this "forbidden fruit", and do you remember the title(s)?
