SCIENCE AWESOMENESS: TIME TRAVEL!

Posted in Actors, Awesome, Dork, Movies, Music, Science, Technology with tags , , , , , , on April 16, 2009 by tsanda

How can this blog tackle a subject as dense and scientific as time travel! Easy same way we tackle every other topic, with half assed wikipedia reading and some sweet pictures.  So time travel is defined by Merriam Webster and associates as the act of traveling in time.  Yea, I thought it was going to be way more deep than that, sorta sounds like we made it up… well here is another big science phrase we didn’t make up Quantum Entanglement!

 

Yea, Bet You Didn't Know I Knew about the Quantum Entaglements.

Yea, Bet You Didn't Know I Knew about the Quantum Entaglements.

Okay, we are already bored of scientific time travel.  We are pretty sure the best movies ever have to do with time travel.  So if we combined all these into one it would be the best movie ever right?  It only makes sense, don’t have to be a scientist to know that.  Wouldn’t hurt though scientists are smart.

So the movie starts with a young scientist who discovers a Einstein-Rosen-Podolsky bridge  and slides through it.  Upon completing his slide he discovers he has gone forward in time and there is a robot revolution going on.  Which blows.  He finds a junked Delorean retrofits it with a flux capacitor (what? he made it…he is a fucking scientist remember) and shoots back in time.  The machines see this and decide they will use this technology to kill the leader of the resistance that is fighting against them.  So they send back a machine in their own delorean.  It is 1950 and the young scientist finds he has gone to his parents hometown and must figure out a way to get them together or he and his brother are never born.  His younger brother apparently is bound for greatness, he is going to lead the resistance against the machines.  The machine learns this and decides it will kill the younger brother to stop the resistance.  In regular time, right now, the Time Enforcement Commission (TEC) decides it needs to send back its best cop to save the day.

So time cop comes back in time, but forgets his weapons.  So two nerdy guys must quantum leap back into time and help Time Cop get into a fist fight with the machine to save the resistance.  End.  Or is it…Not yet.  In 1000 years a couple of stoner students must do a report on this event in history so they get into their phone booth and try to learn all the can.  End of movie credits roll.  Hell i’d see it.

MUSIC AWESOMENESS: FOALS!

Posted in Awesome, Basketball, Music, Sports with tags , , on April 15, 2009 by tsanda

HEY KIDS!  Time for more music.  Last week we introduced you to a little band called Yeasayer.  We hope you are ready for more.  This week we hop across the pond, well more like fly for 8 hours but I slept the whole time so it seemed short.  We landed in Oxford, England and danced the night away to a great band, Foals.

They play a high energy brand of rock which has drawn comparisons to Franz Ferdinand and Bloc Party.  Although much more popular in England they are gaining recognition here in the States from their great live performances.  They have a great debut album our right now, Antidotes.  Give em a listen, you will probably find your right foot tapping uncontrollably.  It’s okay its natural.

MONSTER AWESOMENESS: GODZILLA!

Posted in Actors, Awesome, Dork, Humor, Monsters, Music on April 13, 2009 by tsanda

It’s amazing that something with so little production value can have such an impressive following, it is kinda of like this blog, but without the impressive following. It got us thinking about a very important question.  Why do people like Godzilla so much?  I think it can all be summed up with a quote from Godzilla 2000, in which a wise man once said, “Maybe because… there is a little Godzilla inside each one of us!”  Which hopefully wasn’t meant literally cause that could really hurt.

 

Our Power Animal

I just hope the little part of Godzilla in me isn't the pointy crystals...

Godzilla comes from the Pacific Ocean to destroy or protect Japan.  However he is feeling that day.  He is like Japan’s pimp, he will occasionally bitch slap it a little bit; but if another monster is messing with his turf he will come to it’s rescue and kick the shit out of that monster.  Godzilla has fought a giant moth who was presumably trying to eat Godzilla’s sweaters.  He has also fought giant robots and a space rock that for some reason then became a monster who also for some reason hated Godzilla.  I could be wrong, but I think people like Godzilla because they like watching giant monsters getting into fisticuffs and accidently smashing buildings in the process.  Hey, I never said it would be a good explanation.  Just the Truth.  I just wish old cool Godzilla would find and murder new and gay American Godzilla.

I have found that some people complain that Godzilla is just to hard to read as an actor.  They say, “He is too wooden and one dimensional.”  To that I say, “for the untrained eye, maybe… but let me train you”.  

You say, “thanks.”

I say, “Your welcome” 

 

Follow along from left to right top to bottom (just incase you’re just learning how to read)
