The Vader Project

before i begin, lets welcome the new Author, ill refer to him as #2...

anyways back to this little topic if you live around Pittsburgh, go to the Andy Warhol Museum (well until May 3rd)

Its called the Vader Project, which about 100 of the best artist and designers today were given a scale of Darth Vaders helmet to customize as they saw fit... which i think is awesome, imagine if Darth Vader's suit actually matched some of the helmets... it be crazy...

anyways if your a big Star Wars fan like me, and your in that area go check it out....

Salutations, fellow nerds and nerd fans.

I guess for now I'll be known as "Number Two." I stumbled upon (no endorsement intended) this gem and asked to contribute, and the gods of cyberspace sprinkled some pixie dust to make it so. Be prepared for a reiteration of the content in the side window.

A short, SHORT little bio.

I work with the original USMC Nerd. To a degree. That's, well, all you really need to know.

Originally thought to have originated at the tip of William Shakespeare's pen, the term "nerd" has come to encompass any knowledgeable expert in a given field requiring an intellectual approach with a slight sacrifice in athletic ability (in most cases).

Since we're required to PT daily (by order, despite whether it's enforced) I don't see the latter being very accurate. And despite our reputation as meatheads, jarheads, etc., some of us have a half a brain or more.

And it's not limited to gaming, music, film, or other forms of enjoyment. You can be a sports nerd, a political nerd (God forbid), a trekkie (God forbid forbid forbid, I kid, really), or one of those techies that hang around backstage at local theatre productions. Regardless, I hope to bring a little bit of everything to the table, including from time to time maybe a week's soundtrack or a link parade of some slices of happiness I come across here on the intarweb.


Mississippians "don't read good."

A bit of reading for your traumatic pleasure.

I've never actually played D&D, per se, but this was easily one of the funniest damn things I've seen in a while.

A movie review (some links NSFW)

Look for the first post by "andrew" and "tysonlowery".

I'll be adding some movie reviews, movie recalls, song assessments, etc. Maybe even a boring-ass op-ed to make you feel pretentious. But chances are, if you're here reading this, I don't really have to do much to nurture that.

okay so the Movie Industry can't come up with new ideas, they have to steal from our childhood. I mean i understand that now and days we can create those stories now on the big screen and not make it crappy. I just hate how there isn't anything really original, except comedies and those are REAL movies, no matter how much I love comedies, they aren't REAL movies...

anyways back to the ruining my childhood... okay so here is a list of all things that was holy to me as a child now being a movie...

-Smurfs (its gonna be CG most likely, or hybrid)
-G.I Joe (supposedly not American heroes but UN heroes, or some bullcrap)
-Captain America
-Where the Wild Things Are?(how'd they come up with a full length script, beats me)

those are the ones coming out... thats not to mention what already did like

-Alvin and the Chimpmunks
-Dragonball Evolution
-Street Fighter (again...)

and the list goes on...

i want to work in the movie business so i can put some original ideas out there for once or something....
-Transformers (i liked this movie but still....)

Wheelman Review (Demo)

okay first off i haven't played the game, just the demo... now there's alot i like from this game and alot i hate. i love the ramming of cars, and the moving car jack, and the cyclone shoot cars in bullet time... but there's alot i hate, like the physics system needs lots of work, the charactor models, the skins on the models are horrible very shiney, characters not really life like, the AI is dumb, the police can see you, shoot at you but if your behind a statue in the alley way they dont really come after you they just keep shooting even if they don't hit anything, also the voice acting is horrible, okay yeah its Vin Disiels voice, but come on try and put some emotion, okay i don't blame the voice actors, i blame the writers for such dumb scripts... but for the most part it is a very interesting game, and suggest downloading the demo before buying it, i did enjoy the game, but again there are alot of small stuff that pissed me off...

1st Game Review - Resident Evil 5

okay so Resident Evil 5, obviously is the 5 installment of the Resident Evil games, now me being a Resident Evil fan from the first game on the Playstation, I really like this game, so again ill give you two points of view coming from the fanboy side and the neutral/bashing side.

okay okay so as a fanboy, this game is great, continues the story right where Code Veronica kinda left Chris' story, and right after 4 obviously, now it introduces some a new character, your sidekick, which i think is fun when playing co-op, playing it single player isn't bad but can get annoying constantly keeping track of her vitals, anyways it plays just like RE4 and also is a lil more exciting then the previous installments. one of my favorite characters Albert Wesker, returns, and is as bad as in here as he was in Code Veronica. if you enjoy co-op type games, this is a great pick, definately buy it...

now for the bashing side... get ready cuz if you read my dragonball evo review, its not going to be pretty so bare with....

RE5 is pretty much RE4 but with different characters and a different backdrop, alot shorter, and a bit more crappier.... for example in RE4 (talking mainly if playing by yourself) you can at least put that chick you were meant to save in a dumpster and go fight zombies til its all clear, now for you partner in RE5 she is as retarded like those special people at the olympics, but not as athletic or competitive, if i give her a weapon she pretty much rather use her pistol, and when she runs out of ammo for the pistol she will run go find ammo and continue using the pistol, so i pretty much have to take her gun away, i use her like a pack mule she hauls all my ammo and herbs while i shoot things, and i cant tell her where to go so shes constantly running into danger... at least a cat knows not to jump into an open flame.... also another thing that sucks is the inventory system, in RE4 you had a suitcase and had to pause to get what you need, but at least it can hold a good amount, in RE5 i get 9 fucking slots...... 9 fucking slots, which ammo can stack but not herbs, i can combine 2 herbs, but i cant fucking stack herbs, i can hold 9 big herbs or i can hold 450 pistol ammo... does that make sense to you, cuz its sure fucking with my head, another example and egg is the same fucking size as my RPG, or my AK-47 in what sick fucking world does that exist, and and and if i hurt myself a little bit, maybe i want to not heal myself til later down the road because i have 1 small herb, nooooooo my partner wants to heal me even if i bumbed my head on her fuckin ass as she climbs the fucking ladder....


1st Movie Review - DragonBall Evolution

okay okay... first before i start bashing away at this movie, lets first put aside that i am a very huge DragonBall Z fanboy, okay so i will reviewing this movie into a couple of categories....

as a moviegoer -
this movie was pretty short, not alot into detail about certain topics, they seem to be pushing through to get to certain scenes, this is DEFINATELY a kids movie, obviously from the PG rating, but the story was pretty corney but interesting, they could of done way more with this, special effects weren't the greatest but definately a little different from the normal. all in all as a moviegoer i would rate this a 3.5 out of 5, given that its a kids movie and what not....

now as a FANBOY -
this movie was horrible, i mean i know this isnt DragonBall Z, its DragonBall, okay i got that and i know its called Evolution so its there adaptation on the original story... but Goku isnt a kid, there is no Krillin, Master Roshi has no turtle or even a beard and lives on an island, okay thats small stuff now on to the actually story they crapped on and managed to clip it together into a movie... im warning all of you who havent seen it, this is a SPOILER!!!
for some reason Oozaru is like fuckin Lord Piccolo's pet or something, and that Oozaru was sent to the planet when Piccolo got there and that the NAMEKs are like destroyers of planets.... okay fuck tarts i know that in the anime Namekians were peaceful people and that KAMI (WHY THE FUCK ISNT HE BEING MENTIONED IN THE FILM) is Earth's Gaurdian. GOKU magically learns the Kamehameha after only being told from Master Roshi, and him getting a Fucking Hard on for Chi-Chi does he finally start mastering the elements, idk about you but i didnt know the Kamehameha was a fire based attack, i thought it was raw engery... anyways Piccolo never got to wish to be younger or even lay an egg before getting defeated at the end, which was a very short fight i mean i would of sneezed i would have missed the whole thing..... this movie was total crap on a stick served to me by a mentally disabled monkey with a catarac in one eye....

thank you 20th Centry Fox for crapping on my beloved youth.....
what next your gonna make a fuckin Pokemon live action where Ash is a crack addict and that Pokemon were actually his dreams.... wait on second thought thats not a bad idea.... dibbs on the copyright....

well thats it for the movie review... hope my language didnt offend you... but thats was from the very bowels of my heart....
