Happy Turkey Day

Happy Turkey Day fools.

As I sit here, waiting for the wifey to finish her ‘getting ready’ ritual I thought I would piece together some stuff I have written on the previous couple days in a random text document – my scratch doc that’s always open taking in my rants – and give you a piece of em’ in case you were wondering where your entertainment hours should be spent over this holiday. Before we begin, I hope you all get fat as hell today (that’s my goal) and have a great (and FREEGIN’ safe) holiday! And, if you are looking for a 360, head to Amazon at 1pm central… they will have 1000 units on sale for 100 a pop… I will be there trying to fight for mine – note: if you win and I don’t, it would be the proper thing to do to sell yours to me for 75 (the discount is because I was nice enough to tell you about it in the first place. I know this puts you at a loss, but it’s the holidays and you love me oh so much. 🙂 )

Happy Feet…. Yes, Happy Feet. If you don’t know what it is, check it out. If you do, you are possibly wondering why the hell I am talking about it. Well, because it is quite possibly the best of that type of movie that I have seen in a long time. Of course, I was dragged there by the misses-folk, against my will; but with that said, I wasn’t let down. The movie was better than any of anticipated.

Visually, this was one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen. The detail was awe-inspiring. I seriously mean it, I don’t think that a prettier 3d-animated movie has been made, to date. The physics at work in their world was so realistic it wasn’t even funny. The dynamics of the entire environment was just as natural (to the degree of looking more natural than nature). The perspectives used in the movie also greatly contributed to all of this. There is one (long) scene in particular that deserves special attention here, the main character (yes, the one with happy feet) along with his newly found little penguin friends – a different species of bird (the lead of which was voiced by Robin Williams), belly slide down a glacier.

OMG… OMFG… this is one of those scenes that if you get motion sickness (even not so easily) you may find yourself woozy in the end… I, personally, felt as if I was on a roller coaster – I sat there with the grin of a 5-year old on Christmas morning… breath-taking. Needless to say, this kids movie has my seal of approval. Check it out if you are fan of 3d animation. The technologies employed here are groundbreaking, and bound to be seen again.Also, in an unrelated review…If you haven’t checked out the handsome boy modeling (because you have been under a rock like I obviously have been – came out in 1994) school you might at least want to give the track listing a glance – more specifically who is on the track. This is an eclectic unleash of creative talent not to mention the collaborations, OMFG (Yes, F…. MF’n even. OMMFG. ).

Jack Johnson ( not exactly a collaboration – a remix, but I will take any ‘new’ Jack), Chino from the Deftones, Pharrell Williams, Mike Shinoda, Mike Patton, and many more. This album feels like you are listening to an ear-movie*. I will keep it short seeing that it is now 2 years old J Thanks for nothing, since no one told me. But seriously, its fantastic, I hate they called it quits… I wish I would have known earlier.

*I would like to officially stake claim to the millions to be generated from this. So… get to work, I want my money beotches.…

  1. wattup yo — actually amanda chinberg made that header for me — she’s a graphic designer — the layout for the page is just a theme plugin for wordpress — i’m too dumb to figure out how to write the code to tweak it myself — yeah kentucky is nice — maybe some day we can all go up there — do you still have any family there?
