So that picture on the main page of Pikachu giving birth reminded me on the hours I spent pondering about the pokèmon birtch cycle. I don't know if this information was ever gone over in the later video games and cartoon, but my main boggle is in the mating and birth process. Like, if two Raichus mate, they make a baby Pikachu right? Thats was my main assumption until the new PICHU was discovered in a later game....so Two raichus have sex and make a Pichu? If this is the case, how did scientists like professor Oak and Pokemon Breeders not know about this? Since the Pichu was a newly discovered pokèmon, does that mean that one day Two Raichus had a baby and it was a new breed of pokemon previously undiscovered? Seriously, they say in the TV show, first episode, that there are 150 known types of pokèmon....so how can we just NOW be discovering these pre-evolved pokemon?
Also, can a Raichu and a Pikachu mate and produce a Pichu? Or does it have to be a Pikachu and Pikachu or Raichu and Raichu?
Also, when it comes to the evolution process of pokèmon through the use of a certain type of stone isn't that a little weird? Like what are the chances of a Pikachu just running into a Thunder stone lying around out in the forest somewhere? Or did the scientists take all these different types of stones and expose all types of pokemon to them in a Pokèmon lab testing area to see the effects different stones have on different pokèmon. I can picture that in my head, man...professor oak strapping an eevee down to a table and exposing him to various different types of element stones to see what'd happen. That'd be awesome. I smell a short film.
Also, I never knew how the whole aspect of pokèmon evolving through trading worked out in the pokèmon universe. Like, if i give my machoke to a friend he turns into a machamp. What exactly in the pokèmon's DNA triggers this? Does it count if you steal someones Machoke? Would he turn into a Machamp while you are making your get-away and bust your ass with his newly grown extra beefy arms? Seriously.
ALso, I think its fucked up that you can only carry 6 pokèmon on you. WHo made that rule? Like, is does it have to do with a thing of storage capacity of pokèballs? If I want to cary 10 pokemon, I think i should be able to....and not have the new ones sent to my local hometown Professor's house. And also, someone developed the technology to trasport matter through the computer systems wirelessly and the best thing they can use it for is to send you pokemon home. I mean, can't they be using this to cure the pokemon world's hunger problems by sending necessary medical equipment and food and water to starving people in the Johto area or something?
And finally, who the fuck would let their 10 year old child go out into the world to become a pokemon trainer? You kid is ten years old! GREAT PARENTING! I wonder if Ash's mom ever sits and thinks about how her son is out there in the dead of night, starving, in a world full of ravenous and wild monsters who WILL beat the shit out of you if they stumble upon you, while also constantly being chased by pokèmon stealing terrorists. Good parenting.
Anyway, that ends my pokemon rant...I was only going to talk about my questions on the breeding subject, but I just kept typing...
So several days ago I posted that video of a camjob someoen took of the Venture Brothers Panel thingy at the comic con. Now its up in high quality. Check it out.
Now I can make out everything everyone is saying. And the GI Joe spoof looks so much better in higher quality.
Speaking of, just finished watching the "Arise, Serpentor, Arise" gi joe little story arc and its still really good. Im planning on watching the rest of the show to see if it all holds up. Anyway, I promise I'll post a new blog soon.
5 minutes taken from 2008 New York Comic Con. Looks to be an amazing season. Guessing a bunch of it takes place in the past cuzz Hunter isn't a chick. Also, the GI Joe spoof made me laugh so hard i died.
Smash Brothers. Super Samsh Brothers BRAWL. I've been playing smash brother a shit load, and by a shitload I mean as much spare time I devote to video games has been devoted to Smash Brothers...which is an ass-ton. I'm sure the majority of you guys have been playing it as well. I have to say...Its freaking awesome. I didn't think they could improve that much from the last one. Especially the Story Mode...or...Interspace Conquest Pedastal mode or whatever its called....I was expecting like last time with simple run through this dungeon and get to the end...not crazy FMV sequences of Diddy Kong Teaming up with Star Fox (which was a dream I once had), or even better, Pikachu and Samus (which is also a dream I had but it involved Samus being naked and I was Pikachu.) yeah....that game rocks.
But it got me thinking....Playing the Pokèmon trainer in subspace action network experian mode or whatever its called is really awesome....so why Can't we have a Pokèmon RPG for the Wii? I know they had that gamecube one where you played a dude and he had to make dark pokemons or something but that wasnt that good. Why not an awesome Pokèmon game for Wii with online trading with friends and all the original pokemons PLUS the new pokemons. Yes? Please nintendo, give me my pokemans.
Also, I have been filming the sequel to our short film "Crazy Zombie King." We did the first one because we heard that George Romero was doing Diary of the Dead contest where you had to make a short 3 minute movie about zombies. The top 5 would be put on the DVD. We took the idea of the Diary of the Dead thru the eyes of a camera crew thingy and makde our short about a zombie outbreak during the filming of a horrible zombie movie made for a contest. I think it turned out great. very funny...lots of arguing.....But we decided to make it like a 13 part series because it was so fun to do and we finished filming this past sunday for part 2. I'll psot moar here when its done.
But in the meantime, check out episode 1 if you would like. Here it is.
Exactly. We all do. So when a friend showed me this...I wasn't sure what to think. If you all have seen this before and I am just being a slowpoke, then I apologize...but I felt the need to post this video here to see what everyone else thinks. Some of the scenes in this trailer were shot in the news station I work in.
From what I understand, the dude who made it is taking all the Cobra villians and setting them in a different world with no GI Joe and no cobra and seeing how things panned out...I think. Anyway, reminds me a little of Caligula.
I always knew Destro was a pimp.
And if you enjoyed that, check this out...its a scene form the movie that disturbed the livving shit out fo me to the point that I can't really think fo Zartan the same way anymore.
Side note, I bought AVP-R last night so I am planning on watching tonight...After posting my last blog, I really wanted to see if they could pull off the predaliens well.
hello everyone. This is my first blog post on dtoid. My friend Mxyzptlk told me to start an account and blog here so I am going to try it out. Here it goes.
I argue with my brother a lot. Not really ever about important things, but things like If Borg assimilated a Jedi, could that jedi borg use force powers....or could the collective use the newly gained knowledge of the force to make certain borgs who have high enough midiclorian levels use the force? Could a Borg eventually learn to adapt to a lightsaber? Who would win in a fight against Godzilla and Cthulhu (I'm going with Godzilla because Lovecraft's descriptions of Cthulhu were written way back when and he could be exaggerating...like when he said that Cthulhu could blink humanity out of existance in the blink of an eye...does that litterally mean "POOF, bye bye humans!" Or does it mean he wouldn't have that hard of a time doing it because he is a big moutnain sized god monster? And How big is mountain sized? Not the size of Mt Everest i think, because Cthulhu picked up that dude and ate him in that one story about the fishermen.......which would make an awesome movie.....The fishermen from deadliest catch go out for crabs and then get Cthulhu'd.....but anyway, mountain sized could mean Godzilla sized, and therefore means he could fight Godzilla...and I'm pretty sure Cthulhu has either Eye Lasers or a Breath Weapon...)
Anyway, today's arguement was about AVP2. I have not seen the movie but it does not matter for what we are arguing. Predaliens....in the movie, predaliens have the Predator Hair tentacle thingies on their heads.
We know that in previous comics and video games they did not have head tentacle hair thingies....but in this movie they do. I personally think they look cool....My brother does not. FWen the facehugger jumps on a creature and lays the egg in their chest, the embryo is fertalized and grows and pops out. It'll pop out looking slightly similar to it's host creautre because of DNA or something, right?
So would a Predalien have head tentacle hair thingies? Yes, I say. It inherited the mouth claw lips and general size of a Predator. SO why not its headgear? Like...a bull alien would grow horns....and a Rhino Alien would have a rhino horn....the alien inherits the traits of its host, so I feel the hair tentacle head thingies would be present.
My brother disagrees completly...but says that the only reason they gave it to them was so that in the movie it'd be easier to distinguish between the two different aliens. I dont know...haven't seen it yet....but that was our discussion..
