"Justice League" (2017)


"Justice League" is a fine movie. It's not world changing, but it's fine. A solid two hour film that's fun to watch. As far as the DCEU films go, this is maybe my second favorite one; "Batman V Superman" isn't as good as "Justice League", but "Justice League" isn't as interesting as "Batman V Superman". Take that as you will. 

I have no major complaints I guess aside that I thought Superman's CGI upper-lip was a bit distracting. But yeah. A definite improvement. Maybe one or two too many jokes in it from characters who shouldn't be jokey, but that's it. 

Orb Slimy "Mystery Monster" figure and slime mix


So while at Micheal's earlier, browsing around with my gf for supplies, I found this slime kit that comes with a free figure. What a fun thing; I could make my own slime and have a cute little monster after it's done mixing. 

This kit was expensive for what it was; but with a coupon I got it for half-off. Mixing the slime was fun but it took a little longer than I thought it would. My little monster friend was caught up at the bottom of the slime glob, and the more I mixed the closer he came to freedom! 

So, after much mixing I finally freed the little creature which was some sort of small lizard worm with arms and sharp teeth. And I mean, it is very small and that was a bit dissapointing but it's still cute. 

This is a fun kit, but I'm not sure I'm going to collect anymore. They're a little expensive and the toy while cute isn't very interesting. I'd collect the figures if they were in a small cheap blind bag.

Hiromi Tsuru, Rest in Peace


The voice actor Hiromi Tsuru passed away due to illness. She was most famous for the role of Bulma in the "Dragon Ball" series. She was also Ukyou Kuonji in "Ranma 1/2". This is tragic news for anime fans as her voice has been with us for so long. Rest easy Hiromi and thank you for everything.

"Rampage" Poster and Trailer released


Dwayne Johnson sure chooses amazing movie projects. They're usually high concept action films, or family films. It'd be interesting to see if he could be in a serious drama. Until then, I guess I'll just have to enjoy all of his mind-boggling action films.

"Rampage" is the second video game adaptation film Johnson has done I believe. The other one was "Doom", which was an okay flick to watch. "Rampage", although somewhat different than the game in regards to design and lore, looks like a lot of fun. I'm always down for a giant monster movie, and this one looks like it's going to be really fun.

To be able to see George and Lizzie on the big screen in any form feels like something that'd never happen. Part of me wants to believe this is a long lost sequel to "Godzilla" (1998).

CHERISH YOUR FIGMENTS AND BECOME A KNIGHT OF ST. BIGFOOT!


The SubGenius Kickstarter brought about many miracles and strange occurrences. One of the more profound instances was when I made a psychic and Twitter connection with the Holy Order of the Sasquatch. Even before I knew what they were about, I knew exactly what they were about. It's as though St. Bigfoot himself stomped on my heart chakra. Truly, this was a holy moment. 


After making contact with the heads of the Holy Order, and introducing myself properly, I purchased a kit which contained the many essentials of Knighthood within the Holy Order. I gained a card which confers my ordainment and rank of Knight, the first two Epistles, stickers, and a sweet patch. Great stuff with beautiful artwork to really convey the core center of what the Holy Order stands for. I highly recommend joining this esteemed and righteous Order so you can see for yourself what you've always thought you've seen. 




It's like what good ol' J.R. "Bob" Dobbs always said; "You'll pay to know what you really think!"; I'm sure "Bob", Eris, Cthulhu, and St. Bigfoot are pals who exist together in the void of some strange nightmare realm, where all the cryptids dwell, feasting upon dying stars. They probably play poker together too.

David Liebe Hart "Space Train" feat. Tennessee Luke; a beautiful explosion of color and expression


Salame! Any day there's a new DLH music video is a happy day for this happy space cadet. Although not mentioned in an sort of guideline, handbook, or doctrine, I feel that it is the sworn and solemn duty of any card carrying member of the David Liebe Hart Interplanetary Anti-Terrorism & Fun Times League to watch any new music videos on the day they first premiere.To do otherwise would be un-American and probably insult any fans of DLH who reside on Star Korendor (a world DLH has extrasensory communications with). The last thing we need is a conflict between Earth DLH Leaguers and Korendian DLH Leaguers; that's just what the Omegans would want!


This new music video was released yesterday around the time I was having lunch so it was nice to have a moment to really enjoy it moments after the release. I believe I was the first viewer, but I didn't jump into the comments section to type "first!" like some sort of idiot. I remember seeing on Twitter a few days ago that they planned releasing the  "Space Train" video this week but it actually slipped my mind, so it ended up being a surprise to me anyway. In "Space Train" we also see a collaboration with Tennessee Luke, another amazing performer and singer I was first introduced to recently with his music video "Play Detective", from his album of the same name. I had meant to mention his music video the day it premiered but it somehow slipped my mind. It's a great song with a equally as great video that had a surprise ending I didn't expect. The entire "Play Detective" album was a nice surprise to receive in my Bandcamp via my membership to the David Liebe Hart Anti-Terrorism & Fun Times League. It just appeared one day. What a joy!



"Space Train" is pretty ambitious. It combines classic 8-bit style animation with more modern 3-D animation, and it combines the musical talents of two different singers who are able to maintain their own unique styles in one song. I'm not a music critic or anything, but as an observant fan I couldn't help but appreciate how these two parts came together to make "Space Train" a wholly unique experience.



Sebby and Teddy (the producers, directors, animators, etc.) did a really excellent job constructing this video. There seems to be at least two different stories from what I could gather; DLH's reminisces about his  abduction and ascent to the space train, and his adventures traveling through advanced alien civilizations with his friend Tennessee Luke. Meanwhile, DLH's puppet friends represent the confusion and danger that his adventures actually have, with the cat and bear taking the place of DLH and Tennessee Luke.

At least, that's what I got out of it. It's like any work of art; abstract and complex, leaving plenty of room for interpretation.

I'm really looking forward to the next DLH Industries release. The whole team puts together such interesting stuff. Today was actually a pretty difficult day for me because of my schedule, and I was really starting to feel worn out. "Space Train" really cheered me up.

Little monsters & plastic dinosaurs: my thinking space


I'm a messy guy, I can admit that. In fact I'm almost proud of it. Sometimes I'm so messy the mess itself becomes habitable. Case in point, I have unconsciously arranged these figures around my keyboard. I didn't mean for this to happen this way, it just sort of did. I'm not even sure why these toys aren't in a box or shelf somewhere. I guess they just make me happy whenever I am stuck working in front of the computer. 







 This blue dinosaur is a recent addition. You can't go wrong with a cheap China made toy dinosaur. They're as basic and wholesome as little green toy soldiers. This guy was a gift from my girlfriend from out local dollar shop. I really dig his paint job. The big red eyes really pop against his blue and beige skin. And you gotta love that giant red fin. 



Hidden away in this green container is a Kraang "Smash'em" toy. He's great, but he'll definitely fall apart and crumble someday. This sort of rubber/latex toy just doesn't have any lasting power. In the meantime though, he'll just live in his little plastic container. 





"C-Force": CHUCK NORRIS WATER?!


Can you imagine my surprise when I discovered this? I was browsing through Facebook last night and C-Force came up as an advertisement and... it's actually something that exists! You can go to Amazon right now and purchase a case if you fancied some Official Chuck Norris branded water! What makes this water so special (aside from the *amazing* celebrity endorsement) is a mystery. As far as I've read it's just water that's from Norris' own property. Perhaps it has healing properties, or gives you amazing martial arts prowess. 








If C-Force is popular, maybe some manufacturer will wise up and bring back Steven Seagal's Lightning Bolt Energy Drink! God, we can only hope.
