Super Conan Bros. [chat]

Earlier this week I posted a link to some strange set design features on Conan's new Tonight Show set. Last night he commented...

Bing.com ads keep showing young people, but I'm pretty sure they're really only talking to the confused elderly who are afraid they might accidentally see a lolcat while looking for Burma Shave stock quotes.

Should be all "so easy your husband could have used it to find discount pesticide and house paint if God hadn't called him home a few years back"

MA17 said...

For blast from the past computer ads, here are three from...must be about 10 years ago now.

Is that what google got you when you typed in "Merry Lynch" or "selling short"?

Incidentally, as awful as the G.I. Joe movie must surely be, that Baroness is not likely to disappoint.

Slo-mo bounding through the streets in power suits won't disappoint either, but only because it's impossible to dash non-existent hopes. What the fuck is that shit, anyway? Did Sigma 6 do this to us?

I secretly hope that the inevitable Storm Shadow / Snake Eyes battle consists of a crossing of blades followed by a cut away to some boring shit a la Wookie battle in Episode 3.

Roscoe said...

GRRR. Sigma Six pisses me HELLA off.. but it's not responsible for that shit.

I mean.. for all it's flaws.. it was able to utilize Dr. Mindbender again.

Not Open Chest Pimpcoat'd Mindbender, but still.

hells.

Poor La Bamba, always getting picked on.

Web Soup Started tonight on G4. it was good but Chris Hardwick needs to stop trying to be Joel McHale.

i think it will only get better. there is a segment called "this week in FAIL" and "things which cannot be unseen"

it is - however - on G4 so someone is going to fuck it up

Mike Lewis said...

I kinda hate Internet sometimes.

_J_ said...

Mikey needs to not used copyright sensitive videos as [chat] videos lest I become sad, sad on the inside.

I am no longer jailed on the PA forums, so good times shall be had by all.

I think the place where I work is going to migrate from Eudora to Thunderbird. Thunderbird is kinda neat insofar as it does what I expect an e-mail client to do.

Mike Lewis said...

Sarah recasts a bunch of movies for future hollywood remakes.

Check out the recasting of Die Hard

Mike Lewis said...

also - just because NBC are a bunch of assholes - does not mean i cannot post the video...

Mike Lewis said...

and by die hard i mean lethal weapon

whats the difference really

_J_ said...

She gets paid to make up recastings of future movies?

My. God.

_J_ said...

I appreciate the Goth site only insofar as I appreciate Goths.

_J_ said...

I want a goldfish army of death.

kylebrown said...

Now if we can just equip them with weapons.

Roscoe said...

Oh, Dear God.

So. Atlus is or has brought over..
Knights in the Nightmare...

and it's a tact. rpg. Only.. it's somehow crossed w/ a Bullet Hell game.

enemies on the map shoot bullets at your stylus cursor, while you try and manage your units on the bottom screen.


So.. confused.

Mike Lewis said...

at the moment she gets paid in free stuff - like t-shirts and dvds.

not cash....saddly

Mike Lewis said...

We are all safe. la BUUUFFF is not going to play Yorick in the Y: the last man movie

_J_ said...

They're making a Y: The Last Man movie?

god..fucking....NO! We have a stack of comics which need to be made into movies. Y? Not at the top; not NEAR the top.

TRANSMET. FUCKERS.

Roscoe said...

Superman is constantly reassured by humanities inner goodness, so he keeps fighting. His struggle is Herculean.

Captain American is constantly crushed by the moral failures and greed of his countrymen, so he keeps fighting to show them a better way. Cap's struggle is Sisyphean.

Roscoe said...

to be fair, Y is a lot easier to make into a movie, and a lot easier to sell.

Transmet? Should be animated.

_J_ said...

Y is just one guy running around on sets full of women

...

I endorse this movie.

kylebrown said...

group sets? hardcore sets?

_J_ said...

WooT! I just got the purple squirrel's picture in Animal Crossing!

I've been trying to get this asshole's picture since my first town..and he JUST gave it to me!

I'm. So. Awesome!

kylebrown said...

Dude that purple squirrel doesn't really care about you. He's only giving you his picture so that he looks good in front of that hot bunny lady. He wants in her pants.

_J_ said...

Conan's Master's Degree in Philosophy joke

_J_ said...

There are two bunny ladies in my town. One is a bitch. The other is nice to a fault.

kylebrown said...

Our blog can now contain wide screen youtube videos! GO US!

MA17 said...

That reminds me. I have Wii Animal Crossing sitting here in the shrink wrap.

Meh.

MA17 said...

These Truth ads are getting lamer. Like tobacco corporations are the only people who have to plead the fifth a bunch or dance around touchy issues. Should make a commercial about Microsoft circa XBox 360 release.

And then they tuck little bullshits into the ads like:

CIGARETTES COULD POTENTIALLY KILL ONE BILLION PEOPLE THIS CENTURY

_J_ said...

Wii Animal Crossing I wanted someone else to buy, try, review, and then grow tired of. I invest my time in the DS version, thank you very much.

MA17 said...

Fine, I'll open the stupid game.

Gotta warn you, I plan on skipping to "get bored with it" pretty much straight away.

_J_ said...

How am I supposed to know how mundane, boring, repetative, and meaningless the game is if you just SKIP to "bored" rather than working to bored? HMM?

MA17 said...

Apparently it is possible to copy AC:WW saves from your DS to this fucking game.

No idea where the DS game is...seems like a trap, anyway. Just transferring a bunch of weeds.

MA17 said...

The housing market in my town is booming. Fuck yeah.

MA17 said...

"My name is Tom Nook, and I run a shop here in town. I look forward to your patronage there, hm?"

It begins.

Roscoe said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK!

MA17 said...

Ugh, I just woke up.

What happened?

Oh that's right, I was delivering something to a pig...god this game is boring.

_J_ said...

It's boring in the sense that...

...

Ok, Animal Crossing can be pretty boring if one does not delight in what the game offers. But I enjoy trying to get purple squirrels to like me.

I'm interested to know what the DS import does. Presumably the Wii version does something the DS does not...so what would be imported?

_J_ said...

Spinal Tap has a new album coming out.
