Wonder Woman vs. Stevie Wonder: ERB

Wonder Woman vs. Stevie Wonder
Once again the ERB guys made another good video. Both artists are extremely good in their rapping. And, whoever plays WW is really good and holds her own.
-Stealing from Ray Charles: Ouch. I remember people asking which one of them was better? Ray Charles or Stevie Wonder?
-Amazon Prime: That is a nice twist on words.
-Broke the mold: Yep, in many continuities, Wonder Woman is born from clay. Yes, you read that right.
-Batman Mention: Yep, in many universes Batman and WW have had a relationship. At one point, Bruce was dating WW and Catwoman at the same time.
-DC being a whole step down: Ouch, that is a jab at DC with Marvel movies being better.
-WW TV show mention: This might be a jab at both WW the old show and the WW un-aired pilot.

Chris Chan and the Angry Medallion

Chris Chan and the Angry Medallion
I love watching train wrecks like Chris Chan mistreat his fans. I found out about a story where Chris Chan was selling his Sonichu Medallions. One customer (Mr. Smith) was mad at Chris and disputed his payment on PayPal.
He and Chris Chan had it out through messages. Chris sort of relented and sent him a Sonichu Medallion, but with a huge difference from the rest. He sent Mr. Smith a medallion with an angry-faced Sonichu with orange eyes...just to be a dick.
Here's what an good Sonichu looks like.

Most of the medallions have a happier expression. He sent this one out JUST to get back at Mr. Smith.  I love that Chris took the time to make a completely different one just to get back at Mr. Smith. 
From the Chris Chan Wiki, ((I did not send you the wrong medallion, I PURPOSELY molded, Drew and colored it to BE ANGRY at YOU, for your constant stubborn attitude and Bullying. And you certainly are bucking up to be worthy of my own anger as well. Accurate Item; MADE CUSTOM JUST FOR YOU, [omitted]! Hmmpf! ))
I am a man-child myself and even I have to say this is beyond childish. It should also be noted that Chris Chan also doxed Mr. Smith too.
To settle the issue, Smith requested a drawing. This is what he got back with a normal Sonichu.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Part 1 of 3)

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Part 1 of 3)


Despite some good aspects, this movie is truly a mess. This is clearly DC playing catch-up to Marvel's movie universe and it shows how desperate DC is to make a combined universe. It reveals that DC hasn't learned a damn thing about universe building with this movie. Even with some stuff edited out, Snyder's second DC movie is overstuffed with confusing and goofy nonsense. With all that's going on, nothing feels fully realized. The movie is somewhat saved in the third act with an impressive final battle with Superman/Batman/Wonder Woman vs Doomsday. However, you have to sit through two dreary earlier acts. For everything the movie gets right, it takes three steps back.
Where is the heart from the Man of Steel movie?
Due to the battle in Metropolis, from the last movie, Bruce Wayne witnesses some of his friends lose their lives. He sees Superman as an uncaring God that doesn't look out for the normal people. Batman decides he must take out Superman at all cost. Confounding this conflict, Lex Luthor is playing a major role in this battle of the heroes.
Trust me, I really simplified the plot in the paragraph above. You have Congress meeting and trade deals and shipping rights to sit through and even a piss joke that doesn't work.
I will say that the openning battle from Man of Steel from the ground level is impressive. And, they
Unlike Man of Steel, WB let the reigns off of Zack Snyder, and we get to see what a pure Snyder-DC movie would look like. While there isn't as much slow-motion-porn, the other weaker and annoying staples of Snyder's other works are present. Like Burton, Snyder is far more interested in style than proper character development and organic plot progression. The main story theme that played a central role in the first movie and grounded it is nowhere to be found in this movie. I am not even sure there is a central theme buried in all this conflicting and confusing story..
For every cool shot faithfully brought out from the various DC comics,you will have two or three questions about characters' motivations. That is a major issue. Snyder needs another director that is suited with telling stories to help with his visual style. This Micheal Bay trend of cool cuts and slow-motion over a good plot really needs to stop.
Yes, we get to see Superman and Batman duke it out, but the movie doesn't really deserve it. The script is so weak that it doesn't give us a proper reason for having Batman want to kill Superman. Batman, if he had problems with Superman, would probably discuss it with Superman first. It is like DC and Snyder wanted to force feed us the conflict from the The Dark Knight Returns without even bothering to convey a proper reason for these two to fight each other.
Captain America Civil War earned it because it built it up over time. We saw the differences the way Cap and Iron-Man viewed the world, so it worked. Here, the conflict happens over a span of ONE movie. Instead of having them fight, why not have to work together in an uneasy alliance? DC Comics was always the publisher that put writers first and the artwork second. Marvel Comics was more of an artist publisher first with style and look being important. It seems Marvel and DC have reversed that with their movie franchises.
There is clearly a bit of tug of war with WB shoehorning into their larger DC movie universe and Zack wanting to show Batman and Superman hating each other. Unlike Marvel, DC wants to force these iconic characters together in the form of ONE movie. So, we get these weak introductions to other DC characters that really don't make a difference to the already super-crammed story.
There is a shinning light in this movie. It is in the form of the lovely Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

Fun with comments...again

Fun with comments...again
Ladies, does this turn you on? 

I love getting comments from very new comments for old post I did years ago. Here's another one.
If you know me in real life, you know that I hate people wearing tank-tops/wife-beaters. I wrote a post three years about sleeveless shirts and I guess I have offended a bunch of people because I keep getting angry comments about it...three years later. Three years in Internet years is like 5-7 years.
From my post, (( Anonymous said...
Fine. We will all take them off and go topless. Would you prefer that? How about you mind your own business instead?
Wednesday, November 23, 2016 8:56:00 PM))
What the F'? My little three year old post got you so pissed off that you took the time to FIND my post, read it, get through the spam filter and then type up an angry comment...about a blogger hating on tank-tops. Really?
Then,you give me the suggestion to “mind my own business”. On my own blog? How does that work? Let also go to the extreme and threaten to go topless. Yeah, go ahead and try that.
Did someone piss in this guy's cornflakes and he was on a tear and targeted my posts? Of all the terrible things I wrote about on this blog, THIS was the thing that pissed someone off? 
Anyway, I got a huge laugh out of this comment and it made my day.  

Louisville Juice Bowl shooting

Louisville Juice Bowl shooting
On a serious note...
During Thanksgiving, Louisville made the national news, but for negative reasons. While watching The Force Awaken with friends, one of my friends told me about the shooting.
I hate to say things that are cliche in nature, but "This is why we can't have good things." There is always going to be some thug that ruins it for the rest of community. This happens a lot in the black community.
This happened in the West End of Louisville. A lot of people view that part of town as having a lot of crime, yet my part of town is considered the richer section of town. We had a major shooting in the East End too, so we can't blame it on just merely happening in the West End.
It is shameful to ruin a positive thing in the black community and shows there is a negative side of the black community I am a little angry that Black Lives Matters won't touch the main issue in the black community. That's black on black crime. This shooting proves that we have elements in the community don't give a shit about other black people.
Remember, it is Black Lives Matter. Yes, police corruption is an issue, but what is destroying is this thug element. We refuse to even discuss the black on black crime issue at all. If you're black like me and mention it, you're considered a sellout or outcast.
This shooting needs to be discussed and talk about reducing crimes. We need to change certain elements of our culture in order to become a better community.
I've always said that we need more black nerds and less thugs. Having swagger shouldn't be as important as having a proper education.
I just have an assumption that this latest crime (in a growing crime year) will be forgotten about and we will lose focus on the real issues. With the incident that happened at the waterfront and the Mall incident, it shows there are some serious problems in our black community especially in the young parts. We're all in trouble unless we discuss it and find solutions.
Okay , off my soap box.

Chris Chan, please stop begging for money...

Chris Chan, please stop begging for money...
I've been following this train wreck for a year or so. I can't get enough of this guy, but it is getting annoying that he keeps posting videos begging for money. At this point, his mother is being sued by two banks/credit card companies. And, Chris is not doing a thing about it. It should be noted the he/she spends most of his government check on Lego sets and video games. Then, he goes online to beg for money. 
How about selling some of those 1K priced Lego sets?  

Congrats, Verizon. You made one of the worst ads ever.

Congrats, Verizon. You made one of the worst ads ever.
This popped up on one of the videos I saw recent and I couldn't bring myself to skip the horrible ad. While love the Thrift Shop song that this is spoofing, this version is really hard to hear. 
First, why would you spoof a song that came out a few years ago. You're aiming this toward the younger crowd. It was released back in 2012.
Second, Why not hire Macklemore & Ryan Lewis to do the spoof. People would really dig the ad and it would go viral.
Now, this ad was bad, but not as bad as the Amy Schumer Old Navy ads...oh, boy. These ads are even worst than those Bud Light ads.

Not the best way to call into work...

Not the best way to call into work...
Hey, instead of calling into work, just create a bomb threat.
From News 4jax.com, ((Jessica Ward, who is not a UF faculty, staff member or student, was working at the Java Hut Coffee Kiosk in the New Engineering Building last Wednesday when she made a bomb threat against the building, according to the University of Florida Police Department. ))
First off, this HAD to happen in Florida where the worst things seem to happen. Second, she is in her 20s so this makes sense in their twisted minds. Third, she made this fake threat because she wanted some time off.
From Wsbradio, ((Police said Ward admitted that she wrote the threat in an effort to leave work at the time indicated in the threat in order to get some “me time." ))
Well, now she probably been fired and is in jail. She has a lot of “me time”. 
Mugshots are the new selfies. 
 

Mannequin Challenge: Please Stop

Mannequin Challenge: Please Stop
From Wiki, ((The Mannequin Challenge is a viral Internet video trend where people remain frozen in action like mannequins while a video is recorded, usually with the song "Black Beatles" by Rae Sremmurd playing in the background. The hashtag #MannequinChallenge was used for popular social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram. It is believed that the phenomenon was started by students in Jacksonville, Florida on October 12, 2016. The initial posting has inspired works by other groups, especially professional athletes and sports teams that have posted increasingly complex and elaborate videos. ))
So, we can blame this on Florida.
I HATE this new meme challenge. It annoys me as much as the Harlem Shake. It probably annoys me the most because this is what cool people consider memes...like the Harlem Shake. If it involves being shown on camera, the cool kids will do it. It feels like a cool kids type of meme.
I just can't understand how and why this thing got so popular. It doesn't make sense to me. It does feel like this stupid meme/challenge will get out of hand too. Because I am old, I can't understand the appeal of freezing on camera.
We got everyone from Taylor Swift to prisoners doing this annoying thing. For some reason, this really bothers me, and I am not sure why though.
Besides, the Police Squad end credits did it much better and it was more entertaining.

Random Stuff

Random Stuff
~Kanye West going crazy: When your people call the cops on you and the cops handcuff you, there are major problems in your life. Kanye started losing it even before this strange rant he had on stage. I've come to really hate him over the years due to his ever expanding ego. He has this strange vision where entertainer are above us normal humans. even his meltdown on stage had some of this strange stuff. And, you have to love that he stopped the show after two and half shows. 
~Supergirl is really taking off this season: Damn, they're really moving into a lot DC Comics iconic story lines. Heck, they even introduced the Cyborg story and they might even bring back Luthor. Yet, there are rumblings of a Superman spin-off too. I love that they're digging into Cadmus and the freaking Guardian. 

~Corey Feldman, when is this shit show going to end?: It seems like every few weeks we get another shit show about Feldman. Now, he's married one of his background “singers”. This will be his third marriage. I can't believe we're still talking about this useless hack, but it is still entertaining to see him fail ever single moment though. I might write a review about one of his “music videoes”.
