Animated Advertising

Fans of classic animation are frowning over the news that Turner Broadcasting will be censoring out all cigarette use in classic animation such as Tom and Jerry.

But for some good news, here's a treat. It's a foreign car commercial featuring Tex Avery's classic characters. And Red has never looked sexier might I add.

Sarah J.'s B-day

Hey Everybody! Sarah Janckila's 21st Birthday is on August 29 but she wants to celebrate on Friday August 25 (This Friday).
If you want to join us, here is the plan . . .
If "Snakes on a Plane" is still playing at the drive-in then we will go and see it. If "Snakes" is not playing at the drive-in then we will be having dinner at Martini's (where Brett works).

So please let me know if you are interested in going.

Ohio Renaissance Festival

Is anyone interested in going to the Ohio Renaissance Festival?
Here is the website: http://www.renfestival.com/index.html

We leave on Saturday, September 30th in the morning (around the same time as last year--like 7:30, 8:00ish) and we would leave Ohio no later than 6:00 when the fair closes. That should get us home before 9:00.

Tickets are $16.99 at the door, but we can stop at a Kroger's in Ohio to buy them for a few bucks cheaper.

Also, if anyone knows for sure they can go, we can purchase a group set of tickets in advance for $21.00 per person--this gets you admission, and also covers a drink, lunch, and dessert at the fair, and a 10% off coupon for something you want to buy.
I'd have to order before the end of August, so, if antone should want to bring money, say to the pool party this weekend, Kristen would gladly accept it!

Movie Reviews

Sooo Many Movies have been seen, Not enough motivation to give full reviews.
Here's the short versions.

Superman Returns
Nothing new here if you've seen a Christopher Reeve Superman film. With today's special effects and technology we still get Lex Luthor as the bad guy. I say it's time for Bizzaro.

2 Slinus Heads



Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

I didn't care for the first one but this one was great. Lots of cool stuff happens plus a kraken

4 1/2 Slinus Heads



Monster House
Rather dark and spooky for cartoon aimed at an audience of children ... Nice! Did I mention there's a dead fat lady?

3 1/2 Slinus Heads



Click
Didn't expect much of anything from this Adam Sandler flick but it turned out much better than I expected. We get to see Christopher Walken being goofy plus slow motion boobies! But all in all still an average movie.

3 Slinus Heads



Clerks II
Kevin Smith goes back to the basics with this sequel to his first film ever. I loved the first movie, I loved the cartoon series, and with no exceptions I loved the sequel. Lots of nerd-talk, Donkey Shows, and the return of Jay and Silent Bob. Snootch to the Nootch!

5 Slinus Heads



Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
This film should rightfully be called Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Product Placement. The advertisements in this movie are overly ridiculous and even though are portrayed in a humorous way, they're still ADVERTISEMENTS. The jokes would of been just as funny with false products. Yet this movie still has it's funny moments plus a cougar mauling.

2 1/2 Slinus Heads



Barnyard: The Original Party Animals
Unfortunately I expected more from Steve Oedekerk's (creator and star of Kung Pow: Enter the Fist)new animated movie. Still it wasn't a bad movie nor was it great. Some moments your laughing and others your waiting for the scene to end. Although I don't see what all the fuss is about with gender incorrect cows.

3 Slinus Heads



The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift
Ummmmm, a bunch of guys with too many hormones solve their problems by racing fast cars in dangerous situations. And ummmmmm, it's in Japan. Did I mention there's a Hulk-mobile and special Vin Diesel appearance?

Just Half a Slinus Head!

So Very Tired . . .


Sorry for the Blog's Drought.

Motivation = LOW

Inspiration = THIN

Anyway new posts Coming Soon.
