Alien is probably my favorite movie of all time. I first saw it when I was 7 years old when my father went to the video store and asked an apparently insane person to recommend "movies like Star Wars" to watch with his kids. It scared the living crap out of me, and I loved it. And because of that... here is a happy alien on a trampoline.

Since Rifftrax did commentaries on them, I have seen the Twilight movies. (And I am like totally team Jacob, cuz like, whatever, Edward.) But when Twilight came up as a blog subject back in the day, I had to go for the ORIGINAL. I'm talkin' Twilight: New Moon from 1941. Lugosi and Chaney in their glory days. Don't bother looking it up, or trying to watch it. All prints were lost. Just trust me.

Eyes of the Hawk. Ears of the Wolf. Strength of the Bear. Speed of the Puma. These are the magic powers of a native american space cowboy lawman with a cybernetic bipedal talking horse deputy-- who he sometimes saddles up and rides around on-- constantly at odds with an evil outlaw alien space zombie and his band of robots, mole people and jackal men. If you've seen the show, you know that's the plot. If you haven't seen the show, those are clearly the fevered ramblings of a hobo on fistfulls of peyote. And therein lies the genius of Marshal Bravestarr.

Turkish Star Wars, AKA The Man Who Saves The World, AKA Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam, is one of my favorite B-Movies of all time. Technically, calling it a B-Movie is probably giving it more credit than it warrants, but I feel what it lacks in production value it more than makes up for in weird, crazy Turkishness. If you ever get a chance, watch it. Just be careful not to whistle wrong. Skeletons are listening.

I never liked drawing robots, I'm terrible at tech stuff. But I did my best for Shockwave, the coolest looking Transformer you'll almost never get to see.
Although, the little you do see of him, he's a chump! He's left on monitor duty on Cybertron while the Autobots & Decepticons crash on earth, lie dormant for LITERALLY millions of years, and when Megatron finally wakes up and gives him a ring, HE'S STILL FREAKIN' THERE. And he's just like "Ah, Megatron my Lord!" Crazy obsessed ex-girlfriend stalkers lack that kind of devotion.

Loved GI Joe as a kid, but right as I was starting to outgrow the toys a bit they started releasing some of the more eclectic selections. They were releasing guys like Croc Master, Big Lob, Chuckles, Road Pig... They came a long way from that first line where everyone was wearing green fatigues. But some of the more ridiculous ones were my favorites. Case in point: Crystal Ball, the Cobra Hypnotist; Big Boa, the Cobra Boxer; and Raptor, the Cobra... Accountant. Who just happened to dress like a bird. Question it if you like, but who the hell is gonna buy an action figure of an accountant UNLESS he dresses like a bird? Hasbro knows what they're doin'.

I used to have a blog, then I erased that blog and I didn't have it any more. Then I had another blog, but I erased that blog too. Now I have THIS blog, and as the saying goes, "the third blog is the blog that you don't erase when you get bored of blogging or think you picked a stupid name for your blog."
That's the way the saying goes.
