Coming Soon...LAKE PLACID 3

I know what you're thinking.  I thought the same thing.

Wait, there was a Lake Placid 2?

Yes, kids, there was an now the second sequel to the 1999 cult classic about giant crocodiles terrorizing a small lakeside town is coming to home video. 

The bad news?  No Betty White.

Scheduled for release on October 26, Lake Placid 3 promises "graphic violence and full frontal nudity."

On second thought, maybe its a good thing that Betty White isn't in this one.

For a look at what's in store for you, check out the red band trailer after the jump.  NSFW!

Every now and then I post images from the glacially slow 'Deck of Cards' project.  Here's the two latest: Trump that, Bitches! Who's up for a little Gim-Runny? And why has it been such a slow process? Because of me and how I am. I got to looking at the two cards side by side and realized that the queen was too busy. The design needed to be simpler. So...... And trump it I shall!

Dead, Jail, or Rock n' Roll!

I've been carrying on for a while now about all thing's Michael Monroe, ever since my March sighting of the new band melted my brain while at the same time instantly making order out of decades of personal history. I've been carrying on so much I'd even begun to wonder if maybe I wasn't crazy. Maybe I just saw exactly the right band at exactly the right place and time and it all came together.

But then the following evidence surfaced -- a high-on-the-bill, main stage appearance at SummerSonic 2010 Festival in Tokyo -- and suddenly I"m more sure than ever. If there is better rock n' roll band on the planet right now I'd like to know who they are.

Not hipper. Not younger. Not cooler. Not cuter. Better.

Friday LinkFrogging - 9/10/10

First things first, thanks, once again to Chris for filling in for me so ably on our weekly jaunt around the web.  Well done sir.  Well done!

Can you feel it?  Summer is fading and fall is in the air.

Football, of every kind, is back underway.

The Boys of Summer are heading into the home stretch and looking for the next Mr. October (or is it November now?).

The networks are blasting us with promos for new fall shows.

As we roll toward the holidays and the inevitable Black Friday that is to come, let's sit back and enjoy this week's cheesecake, shall we?

Say hello to Milla Jojovich star of today's new cinematic release, Resident Evil:  Afterlife.

Ms. Jojovich's geek cred is strong.  In addition to the Resident Evil franchise, she has starred in such other geek fare as The Fifth ElementUltravioletZoolander and the seminal 70s high school stoner flick, Dazed and Confused.

VH1 referred to her as "the reigning queen of kick-butt."  Hard to argue.

UFC 118: Edgar vs. Penn II Predictions

The UFC hits Dana White's hometown for the first time Saturday night, boasting a stacked card featuring a poor man's version of Inoki vs. Ali as an aging boxer steps into the cage to meet an aging cagefighter. The boxing vs. MMA heat on this one (before, during and after) will be unbearable, but don't get caught up in hyperbole - no fight between two 40-year-old men will have that great an impact on the future of the sport. 

If you're looking for the future, then tune in for the pair of elite lightweight division fights featuring the four best 155ers the UFC has to offer. 

Bruce holds a one-fight lead on me through predicting three events (UFC 116, UFC 117 and Strikeforce: Houston), but who's counting? I AM COUNTING, DAMMIT.

Friday LinkFrogging - 8/27/10

Sometimes things are so obvious you just can't see them. 

I mean I do this week in and week out and I try to be topical and/or timely with my selections, but somehow, and believe me, I don't know how, I've overlooked Charlize Theron

The obvious time to use Ms. Theron was during the World Cup.  It was, after all, held in her home country, South Africa.  Didn't even cross my mind.  I made what I thought was a good choice, and I still stand by it, but in retrospect, this was a no brainer. 

Do you remember the first time you saw this week's cheesecake? 

I do. 

Opening night of 2 Days in the Valley and she was getting freaky with James Spader and in a cat fight with the internet's (then) favorite pinup, Teri Hatcher.  In the post Pulp Fiction landscape, 2 Days wasn't Pulp Fiction, but it had a good cast and was well executed. 

Since then she's gone on to star with Ben Affleck in Reindeer Games, a giant gorilla in Mighty Joe Young and cement her geek cred with a starring role in Aeon Flux.  Oh yeah, she also won an Oscar for uglying up and playing a serial killer in Monster

According to Huffington Post, she's single and ready to mingle. 

You are on notice.

The Dell Saga Part 2 - More of the Same

A while back, I wrote a long venomous post about my horrific experiences with Dell customer service over the course of the first six months of 2010.

To my great surprise, Lorna from the "Dell Cares" department responded to the post.

What follows is the email exchange I had with Lorna regarding the situation.

I'd like to say we were able to resolve the problems, but I can't.

Friday LinkFrogging - 8/20/10

Some things in life are just inevitable.   



Kids returning to school.   

Partisan politics.   

Child stars turning into adult train wrecks.   

And bad Michael Bay movies.   

Why the laundry list?  Good question.   

The answer is simple.   

This week's cheesecake selection was one of those foregone inevitablilities.    

Say hello to Jennifer Aniston.   

Yeah, I know.   

I've had the picture in the file since The Bounty Hunter died stillborn in the theaters.  Nobody makes a middling romantic comedyquite like Ms. Aniston these days.  She's clinging to the fraying ends of her Rachel persona for all she's worth.  She still wants to be there with you.  She is willing to be there in a partial naked, but never really showing anything kind of way.  She wants to be there for you the way Meg Ryan was before she had plastic surgery at the hands of the Joker.  

That's what makes today's release of The Switch so interesting.  Its not necessarily a romantic comedy.  Its kind of dark, like The Good Girl.  Her co-star is Jason Bateman, a long time friend who she hasn't been romantically linked with (at least not as of this writing).  In the grand scheme of things, The Switch is what passes for a daring choice by Ms. Aniston.  The big question is whether or not audiences will buy it.   

I think not.   

Still, its release gave me a chance to post the picture and get that monkey off our backs.

Strikeforce: Houston Predictions

Two months after their last major card saw The Fall of Fedor and five weeks after middleweight champion Jake Shields vacated the belt to sign with the UFC, Strikeforce heads to Texas with the hopes of making some new stars to anchor the promotion.  A core of young talent is what kept the company moving as higher-profile outfits like Affliction and EliteXC fell by the wayside.  Now that the spotlight is on Strikeforce as America's top UFC alternative, they'll need new stars to keep that mantle.

Strikeforce: Houston offers a few candidates for the next big thing: a cocky former Olympian, an active Army Ranger and a former professional wrestler trying to go legit.  On a card where only one man, former lightweight champion KJ Noons, can boast a previous record of success within the company, this show is all about making a name for yourself - and hopefully making a name for Strikeforce in the process.
