Hey Mike?


Do you have any sort of harebrained schemes in the works?


My good friend Devin has either been touched by insanity or genius.

And, since I'm so fascinated by train wrecks, I might just jump in as well.

Of course, right now we're just at what Imagineers call the 'blue-sky' phase. Until someone actually wants money, all bets are off. It sort of reminds me when we were kids, and planned 'the coolest fort EVER'. It would have turrets, an emergency slide and even an underground entrance. In the end, we glossed over the fact that none of us could actually build anything.

Of course, if anyone out there is interested, please drop a comment. Like i said before, this is in the very earliest planning stages, and we need all the help we can get.

Take Care,

Mike G.

Good Morning.

I suppose you'd like some breakfast.

But not just any breakfast.

Breakfast. Of. The.

Hey Kids...

Love Comics?

Love horror flicks of the 80's and 90's?

Well, Avatar has made all of your wildest dreams come true, with comic versions of some of the foremost names in cinema horror. Rich Johnston's got all the gory details here. [you'll have to scroll down a tad to get to the good stuff]

Also, if you've ever wondered whether your cell phone would beat someone else's cell phone in a race, Wonder no more.

Your pal,

Hi there.

For those times when I have photos that don't necessarily relate to whatever I'm writing about, you can check them out on my new Flickr page.

Setting aside that uncomfortable acronym, and the fact it's now the day after, I wanted to jot down a few words on...


Currently, I'm content/resigned to being single, but as I look back, I'm seeing things in a new light.

I've fallen in love approximately 5 times. Scratch that. I've fallen about 5 times. To be perfectly honest, I'm not exactly sure you could call it love, but I know it was more than a crush.

On the top of that list? A young lady I've known since 7th grade. We'll call her Terra, since that's her name. It would come and go, but she always had a special place in my heart from that first day of school until graduation. I told her how I felt on multiple occasions, but she employed the brilliant strategy of appearing not to have heard me. As naive as I was/am, I took that as Not A Rejection, which was good enough at the time.

After graduating, we went our separate ways. I tried to stay in touch, but that fizzled out after a few months.

I'm fairly sure she's married now, and I do hope she's happy.

Well, there's a slight peek into the world of Mike. And you wonder why I usually stick to pop culture and funny pictures on the web.

Take Care,

Good Thoughts...


If you can spare some positive thoughts, send some over to my friend Devin of
The Swamplog.

I've mentioned him before, and besides the fact that he thinks I'm actually funny, he's a good friend.

Get some rest sir, and to everyone else,

Take Care.

This Man WILL Kick Your Ass.

As somewhat of a movie buff, I feel the need to tell Churn Nation about a film that is hitting these shores on Friday. It's called Ong Bak, and it features a young man named Tony Jaa. As near as I can figure out, Mr. Jaa is either a robot, or a warlock, because he is clearly not human. The movie site has some clips of Mr Jaa, and in my opinion, need to be seen to be believed. While I would never consider myself an expert, I am a big fan of the martial arts movie. I like the deep introspection of a Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, the balls-out frenetic pace of an Iron Monkey, and even the insanity of a Shaolin Soccer. Well, to summarize, Ong Bak looks to be awesome, and yes, that is a picture of a man jumping through a roll of barbed wire.

Does This Make You Want More Domain Names?

For those who want to see more of the girl. Coincidentally enough, the young lady also known as Candice Michelle, currently displays her wares [not all of them though] on WWE Raw as their new 'makeup artist'. Posted by Hello

Public Service...

Hey Folks,

For those of you who weren't all that interested in the actual Big Game, IFilm has all the ads in one spot, along with the spots from previous years.

Even though this year's game was supposed to be 'family-friendly', from the halftime show to the commercials, someone still found something to be offended about., a domain registrar, decided to buy two spots and poke fun at the 'wardrobe malfunction' of last year. The ad only aired once. According to's President, the NFL told FOX to pull the spot. You can read his blog here.

If you'd like to see the different versions of the ad [broadcast and web-only] click here.

Whether or not the ad is funny, or makes you want to use them for your domain isn't the point. They already approved the ad and then aired it! Did they think the company was just going to ignore the fact that the ad they paid for wan't shown? Yes, there is an attractive lady in a tank top, but didn't the broadcast feature both teams' cheerleaders in and out of the commercials?


I'm sure we'll hear more about this in the coming days.

Take care,

Mike G.

Radio is Fun...

Say Hello to Miss Jesse Jane. Believe it or not, I'll have the opportunity to speak with her tonight on the P1WAC. Also, Brother Mike and I will discuss the Royal Rumble, and the Road to Wrestlemania. It's like Christmas and my birthday all at once. Posted by Hello

An Offer You Might Not Want To Refuse...

One of the fundamental truths you lean early on in your life as a nerd is this...

Video Games based on Movies will usually suck.

The Reason? Basically, the people responsible for the movie are hardly ever the ones responsible for the game, or the game has little or nothing to do with the movie it's based on.

But EA, the folks behind almost every good game you've played, are taking serious steps to discredit this maxim.

Hop on over to Gamespot, and marvel at the news.

Now the game itself may still suck, but at least it will look good.

Take Care,

Mike G.
