Baltimore comic con cast


me and Brian Bendis

The comic con was just a week ago, and wouldnt you know it, Kev, Aitch and greg were on hand to get in touch with the inner geek inside of us. What happened? What did we see? And why the hell was a grown ass man wearing a Paper Mache(if I spelled it wrong who the fuck cares) Boba Fett costume? Find out that and who the bald white guy I took a picture was at:

comics podcast

Just looking for some feedback and whatnot. Me and my fraternity brother recently started our comics podcast.

http://www.freewebs.com/thenextissue

If you have the free time and would like to show some support, offer some constructive advice please do so. Also we are still looking for someone who reads DC comics pretty extensively to join us monthly for our talks. If you know someone(preferably in the dc area) let me know, but take the time to check out the cast.

and now for your entertainment, a picture of me getting fresh with nicholas cage....

Review: The Forbidden Kingdom

The synopsis is taken from IMDB.

An American teenager who is obsessed with Hong Kong cinema and kung-fu classics makes an extraordinary discovery in a Chinatown pawnshop: the legendary stick weapon of the Chinese sage and warrior, the Monkey King. With the lost relic in hand, the teenager unexpectedly finds himself traveling back to ancient China to join a crew of warriors from martial arts lore on a dangerous quest to free the imprisoned Monkey King.

I figured since I am getting all these free passes, might as well make the most of it. This film marks the first pairing of Jet Li and Jackie Chan. This movie is a pretty good martial arts film. The fantasy elements are well played. The story is nothing new, boy bumps head, goes to fantasy land and becomes a hero which in turn helps him be a hero. Not the kind of story that makes an oscar worthy film, but hey, get over it and enjoy the movie. The fight scenes are very well choreographed, especially the fights between Li and Chan. They both have stated that working with each other was very fluid and rhythmic, and it shows on film. There are many fighting scenes from movies where the camera would jump around the action, trying to make it more intense, when it really does nothing but give most people a headache and make the work look shoddy. That wasn't the case here, every fight scene was very well played out and believeable(even those involving our hero kid).

In all we have a story thats unique in a way, but also that has been done. Does that make the movie unwatchable? Not at all, This is a good martial arts film with a few laughs thrown in that will please the viewer from start to finish.

Good early start to the movie season.

8/10 stars
Go See it!!!!   read

RE racism and the dtoid community

If your not a game player and you see RE5, you could see it as racist.

I personally praise capcom for what they are doing, then again I am a gamer. Those who don't game outnumber the gamers. Even larger if you just look at black people who game compared to those who don't game. Granted a lot of us don't see it as racist. Just remember that issues that we have dealt with in our history are not easily forgotten and the impact of which can still be felt by many blacks today. I am a big proponent of saying whatever you like but I have seen somethings that have made me take a double look. Just be weary of what you say, we all have our opinions, but know some history or have some class before you make some of them.







With that said, I can't wait to shoot the black zombies in RE5, go capcom for the bold move!   read

Random guitar hero thoughts




Its amazing how I have had to justify the greatness of this game to some of my friends. Whats even crazier is having to justify why a black man can be good at this game. Been playing guitar hero since the original came out. I find it funny that my black friends thought I was crazy for trying it and that no self respecting black man would play it(you should have heard them after I beat the game on expert....) Along comes guitar hero 2. I still heard the same issues from them, but not to the same extent, maybe cuz it was the sequel, or that it came out a little over a year later like the madden games they buy every year for that little change that EA makes that justifies spending another 50-60 buck on the game(we all have those friends). I stray from my thoughts. Another great game, had its moments too(fuck psychobilly freak out on expert and that robot of a fucking kid who was on youtube). Now I sit here WITHOUT guitar hero 3, why you ask? because I wanted to wait for rock band(which is fucking awesome) and lo and behold I turn on my 360, glance at my friends list like we all do when we first turn the system on. All my friends from college(HBCU representin') are playing guitar hero 3 like its the new madden. What was I saying 3 years ago? Now its cool? maybe because its made by the people who did tony hawk? people by those every year for minimal changes? Or maybe they can admit what I admitted 3 years ago. Its a great feeling to rock out.....even if it isnt a real guitar....   read
