      How the hell did this huge Thank You Ad from Chrysler get past PR without a red light is really beyond me:
      chryslerthankyouamerica.jpg

      They posted this gem on their blog and all the comments either flamed or bashed it. Chrysler took the post down by fortunately Google's cashe caught it. I don't blame them. I am in the process of reading almost all of them.

      I just love this shit when the true colours of a company gush out. Chrysler reminds me of that kid in school who never knew when to shut up.

    • Barack to the Future

      10 years ago

      Microbe

      The title was deceiving, but it's not necessarily a bad thing. I actually had a good time tonight. Basically, the show was a variety of satirical comedy sketches, some scripted and some improvised. The improvised bits were the most hilarious, because those were the ones that included some audience participation.

      One improv bit that was awesome was the TOO FAR Game Show where three of the comedians tried to give their dirtiest joke about a certain situation in current events and they would ask if they went "too far". The best one was the last question where the announcer talked about Howie Mandel in hospital due to a heart murmur. One comedian decided to not write a joke and instead drew a picture of him forcibly shoving a #7 Deal or No Deal brief case up Howie's anus. Ahh, good times.

      After the two hour show, they did about 45 minutes worth of pure improvised sketches they were working on their next show.

      So, all n' all good time.

    • Goin' to the Theatre

      It's been a while since I've been to a live performance (not including the ones I attended during university). After watching many Blu-ray HD movies made me realise who much I miss live performances.

      So, tonight I'm going to be watching Barack to the Future at The Second City Theatre and Bye Bye W. ( a one night showing) on the Friday night. Political Satire? Hell yeah! smiley0.gif

      Tomorrow I'm going to check out The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I hear and read good things about it.

      So, far those are the only things happening in my life. Work is excruciatingly slow since after the New Year. Well, one good thing is that I was just trained on the new Hitatchi HD cameras my work recently upgraded to. Other than that I've been trying to find other means of work and it's seriously f-n' tough.

    • Blu Ray Luxury

      10 years ago

      Microbe

      I've owned a Blu-ray player for about 2 weeks now. It's absolutely a luxury-luxury item and I think I stand by my initial "dvds are just good enough" stance.

      After watching The Dark Knight, I went mad from the absolute clarity and awesomeness of the IMAX scenes.

      I thought to myself, "OH MAN THIS IS IT!"

      But then I checked out other Blu-ray transfers of old movies and then I kinda lost the buzz. While a slight improvement, it's just not enough for me to shell out the cash. I think I'll stick to buying blu-ray movies that take advantage of HD Tech (IMAX, 3D, Red, Digital, HD) and all other movies prior to 2003 will be DVDs.

      Here's a list I found on Premiere.com about movies using IMAX to the max. smiley0.gif

      While you'll be at your respected [is there such thing at a disrespected place?.. A Whore house maybe? Meh] places to celebrate the New Year, I'll be at work. It's not the first time I've worked on New Years.

      I wonder if my work will do anything on air when the clock strikes midnight. Who would want to shop on New Years anyway? smiley4.gif

    • Jumper Wanted

      10 years ago

      Microbe

      My sister bought the DVD and I actually sat and watched it with her for the first time.

      [Spoiler Alert... If you care]

      Did the producers tell the writers to take a hike and hire more people for visual effects? After witnessing the Colosseum scene with Millie and David, I think that's what they did.

      What threw me over the edge was with the introduction or "explanation" of the "machine" the paladins used by one of the Jumpers. This is how the scene pretty much goes:

      [David jumps with Millie into Griffin's hide out. David runs out to meet Griffin. Millie tagging along behind]

      David: Griffin I have to tell you something...

      Griffin: What the butt fuck are you doing here? What is she doing here?! don't you know they have a machine?

      David: Listen...

      Griffin: They have this machine that can leave the portal from our jumps open for them [the paladins] to jump though to fucking kill us!

      David: But listen to what I have to say...

      Griffin: Okay I'm listening

      David: Listen...

      Griffin:...

      David: Listen and hear me out...

      Griffin:...

      David: Just listen okay!?

      Griffin runs in the hideout to arm himself. David runs after him.

      David: LISTEN!!!!

      Millie goes on a tea break.


      It's almost as if dialogue has been cut to save money. I would seriously bet that if you put the dialogue into words on paper, there would be enough words to write a Clifford the Big Red Dog book [about him being euthanized smiley6.gif ]

      This leads me into Wanted. I don't know how it does, but it does. The first 15 minutes didn't suck me in, but the clinch for me was when Gibson yelled, "Shut the fuck up" to his boss. I think everyone can feel his pain and wish we were in his situation. The events prior helped me like that scene: finding millions of dollars in his bank account from the fraternity, shooting the wings off flies, etc, etc. I also think it's nice to see Morgan Freeman taking more roles as "the man" in his own way I just hope he keeps his roles diverse unlike Sam Jackson. As much as I love Sam Jackson, I believe his career has gone the way of Nicholson. He's become a Hollywood Archetype. As over the top Wanted was, I'd say it was much better than watching Jumper. It's almost like comparing two apples and asking which one is more rotten than the other.

      I'm going to wash off my horrible movie night with some Robot Chicken. smiley0.gif

      And... Take 2 *clap*

      March 2008 Film_Geek (Aka Charlie) filmed a video short with BigNiceJohn. With no editor in sight the project goes on hiatus for seven months. I get wind of the unedited footage and project in October and tackle the beast with an iron fist.

      Today is December 22nd, 2008 December 28th, 2008

      Here's the video in Full HD. I love the fact I can embed full HD videos now smiley0.gif

    • I can READ!

      10 years ago

      Microbe

      Holy Shit! I can read the fucking text in Dead Space. When I was playing the game on my family's 36" CRT I was so pissed and never really bothered with reading the text logs. Now with my HDTV I'm reading everything! W00t! The colour contrast is also a thing to marvel at. Playing Dead Space on an SDTV wasn't really scary at all, but on an HDTV it's horrifying! I also noticed when fighting the Slug Boss I have a better view than I did on the 36" CRT. I don't how to explain it, but on the CRT the view seemed a little shallow and small, but on my HDTV the view was closer and larger if that makes sense. Now I understand why Geoff's video on the Slugger Achievement on AH looked precise smiley9.gif . I almost gave up, because it was really hard back when I had the 360 hooked up to the CRT. I can't get over how great games look now and this is coming from someone who never understood the hubbub about HDTVs and Blu-Ray. smiley11.gif

      Ha! Blu-Ray that's something I thought I'll never own. On the contrary, I am proud to say I own a BD Player smiley10.gif . I thought the Xbox360 up-converts DVDs to my HDTV's 720p standard, but I found the hard way it doesn't. I popped in the Dark Knight and I was horrified by the picture quality. No amount of tweaking the TV's MPEG smoothing and other options could remove the pixelated hell I witnessed first hand. I gave up and consulted Craigslist.

      I initially wanted to just browse and see what the going rate for Blu-Ray players were when I found a diamond in the rough, so to speak. Someone was selling a brand new Samsung Blu-Ray for $150CAN. In short, he won it at a raffle and had no use for it, because he owns a PS3. He looked at the going rate on Futureshop for the player ($199CAN) and said he would sell it for $150. I was pretty impressed, but I had to look around before I contacted the seller. I went on ebay, futureshot, best buy and even quick searched on Craigslist to see if anyone was selling something similar at a better price. I found no posting or page that came even close to his price (locally). Someone went as far as selling a Samsung BDP1000 for $299CAN (I know! What a rip!) I e-mailed the guy and he gave me his contact number and we organized a pick-up location. I almost felt like a junkie right about that time, lol. The dude was cool. He was surprised I wanted the player, because he said normally older people go for the Blu-Ray players. I told him I don't plan on getting a PS3 at all, so a Blu-Ray player is my only option.

      When he took out the box from his car I told him "I just need to open it just in case it isn't a big rock".

      He laughed and said, "Yeah, me too!"

      All was well when I opened the box. Everything was there and intact. No huge rock or pebbles in the box.

      When I got home, I hooked up the player to my TV via HDMI (first time using one!) and played one of my Robot Chicken DVDs my sister bought for me. So far the DVD up-conversion on the player is satisfactory, but my eyes are still cringing. I need to get a Blu-Ray Disc and really see how the baby runs. I recently updated the firmware. I have no idea if that means its upgraded to BDLive 2.0, because on the Futureshop page it says "BD Live (profile 2.0) ready (via future firmware upgrade)".

      So, I'm going to buy T2 on Blu-Ray. One, because I love that movie. Two,Thanks to PT606 for showing me the Gizmodo article on calibrating HDTVs.

      I think was everything I had to say.

      Oh and presents were okay this year. It seems my sister is the only one who knows that I like.

      smiley9.gif Yep, I've become an Achievement Hunter. Damn smiley5.gif

      smiley10.gif Yeah... I still question that... Proud?

      Guess who's working Boxing Day? Me. Meh, I don't have any money anyway to buy anything. Plus, all the items I got aren't a low price today. so I'm in the clear about buying all my stuff pre-boxing day. Oh well, I guess I'll just sit here an work for time and a half. smiley0.gif

      smiley11.gif Sorry if I'm saying HDTV a lot, but it's just exciting. I wonder what the next best thing will be XDTV (Extreme Definition Television)? lol

      I was looking for 1080p displays, but they're mad expensive.

      Can't wait to hook it up to my Xbox360 smiley0.gif
