Dimitri the lover

27 06 2008


REAL voicemail left for some poor woman!

Dimitri, Dimitri, Dimitri. I am ashamed that I have to share this fine city of Toronto with skum like you. Even though you have now provided millions of people with a good giggle, it doesnt change the fact you should be burned on the stake. To think I was at Rancho Relaxo last night and perhaps shared the same air to breath as you discusts me.

Ladies, please listen to the voicemails and read the articles below.
Men, take note. If you ever see a REAL MAN poster for a convention downtown – Dont go. But if you do… please take pictures. Im curious to see what this slime ball really looks like.

Pathetic.

UFO sightings prompt demands for inquiry

25 06 2008

A flurry of UFO sightings (in the UK) have led to calls for the Ministry of Defence to launch an official inquiry.

UFO experts believe the incidents, which happened in Shropshire, south Wales and Worcestershire earlier this month, are “particularly significant” because they included observations made by the crew of a police helicopter and military personnel.

The MoD confirmed today that it had been handed footage captured on a mobile phone by a corporal on guard duty at Tern Hill barracks, near Market Drayton, Shropshire, on June 7.

Corporal Mark Proctor told The Sun he witnessed a “fleet” of objects objects zig-zagging across the sky at about 11pm.

The 38-year-old soldier, a member of the 1st Battalion Irish Regiment, said: “I was on duty in the guard room when the other boys outside began shouting.

“I went out to see what the commotion was about and could see 13 craft in the skies. They were like rotating cubes with multiple colours.”

Comic-Movie mashup overload!

25 06 2008

I’ll lay it right on the table to start. Im a nerd. Not only am I aware, but I embrace this element of my personality. I feel the need to announce this fact in order to prevent the numerous comments I expect to recieve labelling me as so. Beat you to the punch.

Ive seen many good comic book movie crossovers lately… Batman begins, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk to name a few. Those films in combination with my endless obsession with movie blogs and overall buzz snooping has me fixed on the edge of my seat for the many more adaptations on the brink of production/being announced/released.

The Dark Knight – the endless stream of viral marketing has kept me quite occupied throughout the last year
The Green Hornet – Seth Rogan as Britt Reid. Pure genius. Only question is if I can wait until 2010!
Wolverine – X-Men Origins… or whatever. Doesn’t matter. All that does it Hugh vs Liev, tres exciting!
Hellboy 2 – Ill admit, I cant even recall what happens in the first one. Guillermo del Toro is why I will watch.
Watchmen – Get a glimpse of the limited production photos released. Looks like great casting!   
Justice League – casting is not up to date/limited. Hopefully they release head to head with the Avengers!
The Avengers – Breakdown HERE
Hancock – Will Will be an 8-hit wonder?
Gi Joe – Alot of big names are cast. Brendan Fraser, Sienna Miller, Chanum Tatum. High expectations!
The Spirit – Yes, its based of a graphic novel. Yes, very similar feel to Sin City. Samuel L Jackson in Comic book movie number #546781
Wanted – This ones going to kill the box office. Hopefully its success convinces Ange to sign onto Sin City 2!

And then there are those others which should be halted in their tracks:

The Sub – Mariner; a glorified-jacked up-merman-aquaman ripoff
Shazam! – Captin Marvel is a lame version of Superman. The rock (sorry Dwayne Johnson) as the villain, who would have thought! haha.
Luke Cage – Tyrese Gibsonas a superhero? God help us.
Thor – umm… great idea for a member of The Avengers… not so much as a solo.
The Green Lantern – The writer’s credits include Dawsons Creek. Enough said.
Ant-Man – Could this be made as anything but a comedy? Although, if Simon Pegg plays Hank it would surely be a home run!
Spiderman 4 – Enough is enough.

Wanna know more? Did I miss a film? Want to see production photos, hear spoilers, casting, or online buzz? Im your resource (OR you could just use slashfilm.com)! Message me or comment and ill send you a gagle of links.

Have an opinion of your own? Comment and share!





How a 730-Ton Ball Kept the Second Tallest Building From Falling During the Chinese Earthquake

25 06 2008

The recent Sichuan Earthquake in China was so intense, tremors were felt all the way over in the tallest completed building in the world—the Taipei 101 building in Taiwan—a whole eight minutes after the quake originated. (The title of tallest building period was taken by the Burj Dubai back in May.) What’s interesting about the 101 is that it has a gigantic suspended tuned mass damper, or hanging ball, which takes up four stories and works like this to prevent the building from falling over and tragically crushing office workers. This 730 ton sphere looks intimidating when still, but wait until you see it in motion during the earthquake.

Dr. Seuss Unorthodox Taxidermy

24 08 2007

Dr. Seuss embarked on an ingenious project in the early 1930s as he evolved from two-dimensional artworks to three-dimensional sculptures. What was most unusual for these mixed-media sculptures was the use of real animal parts including beaks, antlers and horns from deceased Forest Park Zoo animals where Seuss’s father was superintendent.
