Posted : 11 years, 2 months ago on 16 May 2007 01:29 (A review of Xanth 1: A Spell for Chameleon)

This is the book that started it all for me, this series that is: Xanth.

Long story short: Bink is getting kicked out of Xanth for not being able to show his magic talent to the Storm King, meets some characters along the way through his magical home and goes to Mundania (the no magic land). But, through odd circumstances, he gets back in, and uh oh...

A Spell is interesting, because if you continue on in the series, things get more complicated and this book was simpler and more primitive times. Sometimes that makes the earlier books more enjoyable. Many, many, many puns in here.

Good luck figuring out what Bink's talent is, until the end of course...

He murdered death

Posted : 11 years, 2 months ago on 16 May 2007 01:15 (A review of On a Pale Horse on a Pale Horse: Incarnations of Immortality 1 Incarnations of Immortality 1)

This is the start of one of my fav authors Incarnations series, and it's the best of the series imho.

This guy goes and accidentally kills death, and he has to take over the job. So, that means he has to learn the ropes from the rest of the incarnations who give him some tips, but it ain't easy being the ol soul collector.

Neat premise, and I just like Piers' writing style, good times.

Posted : 11 years, 2 months ago on 16 May 2007 01:05 (A review of Atlas of Human Anatomy, Third Edition)

This is practically the Bible of anatomy books for those of us in need of memorizing random body parts.

I've spent many days staring at these pictures, and with the beautiful artistry here, it's not a bad thing to do for hours at a time.

Although, you may find out later that the human body is not as nicely individually colored as in these pictures...

"Useless" facts

Posted : 11 years, 2 months ago on 16 May 2007 12:59 (A review of Useless Knowledge: Answers to Questions You'd Never Think to Ask)

As pointed out in my little profile thingy, I do love my useless facts and information.

This book is separated into different sections of random knowledge, history, food, animals and the like. I would give it a little more pointage, but I have found that some of the "facts" are wrong...

But that's okay, it makes you learn either way!

Doin' things a spider can

Posted : 11 years, 2 months ago on 13 May 2007 02:38 (A review of Spider-Man 3)

Don't worry, I'm not going to stick spoilers in my review while neglecting to say there are spoilers in my title (*hint, hint*)

I do enjoy the Spidey series quite a bit, and Sam Raimi, and the random Bruce Campbell cameos. But I digress.

I thought it was a really good time, action packed, nice tie-ins with Venom, blah, blah. To be honest, I've never been all that excited about Kirsten as MJ (I think Alicia Witt or Lauren Ambrose would have been good, Laura Prepon, while a redhead, would have made this movie awkward with Topher, would have been like some weird parallel universe thingy).
Unfortunately, there was just something missing that the first 2 movies had, not sure what it is, but that's why I gave it a 9/10.

To be sure, I like just about everything I watch, I don't pick things apart. I go to get lost in the movie and have a good time in its little fantasy world, and I did that with the movie, so c'mon, go and have an action packed adventure!

Posted : 11 years, 2 months ago on 12 May 2007 07:45 (A review of Samurai Jack (2001-2017))

Stylish, cool show that I think suffered from being too artsy to keep young kids attention. It had a dark and different color palette, not the usual bright and obnoxious type, interesting music, and a hero that was derived from honor.

I'll admit I didn't catch too many episodes, but of the few I did, it made me want to watch more of them, and I still wonder if he ever made it back to his time to defeat Aku and prevent that future from happening...

Johnny B

Posted : 11 years, 2 months ago on 12 May 2007 07:38 (A review of Johnny Bravo )

Sorry, of the episodes I watched, the show was just kinda boring, not enough going on to keep my interest.

The show didn't have enough to it to avoid repeating itself (sometimes ya just gotta take risks!) and I feel that they played it too safe.

Oh well.

P.S. I heard a rumor that The Rock is playing him in a live action version, that was a while ago though. Hm, that would be really lame.

"Good news everyone!"

Posted : 11 years, 2 months ago on 12 May 2007 07:32 (A review of Futurama)

It's probably a good thing that it only lasted a few seasons, things would have gotten really stale (some would say that it did in its short life).

Below-average guy, frozen, thawed in the year 3000 and has wacky adventures with his friends. Wait, you all know this, you've watched it.

Anyhoo, there are things on this show that I hope they have in the future, and the satire of what's to come, I'd say it's kinda accurate.

Yes, it's in the vein of The Simpson's, but this show can be a little more bizarre and random, and I like that.

Numbah One

Posted : 11 years, 2 months ago on 12 May 2007 07:25 (A review of Codename: Kids Next Door )

Alright, I think this show is cool. Indeed, imho.

A show about being a covert kid group that fights the powers of getting older and losing their kid-ness with really neat gadgets, vehicles and the like. Lots of parody in here of various movies and shows, I think it hits upon every kid wanting to be in a secret society and never wanting to grow up and entering the unknown.

Fun, very silly, and lots of action, a good combo for my tastes.

76 Trombones

Posted : 11 years, 2 months ago on 6 May 2007 05:52 (A review of The Music Man (1962))

In my defense, I did see this as a stage production before the movie version. But now I'm so used to this one, I try to watch it here and there.

Robert Preston is The Music Man, the traveling, swindling salesman, who "gets his foot caught in the door", and can't rip off an off-beat town after getting attached to the people. Great music and characters and Mrs. Partridge (Shirley Jones) as Marion the Librarian.

One of my fav movies, having been a band geek and all.
