Any NJ Road is bound to be a nightmare...

.....especially if it tries to engulf your SUV. What a horrible night to have a curse!

There's a Dragon Con?!?

...and it takes place in Atlanta during Labor Day here...

"With Labor Day weekend upon us, it must mean it's time for Dragon*con, the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music and film in the southern U.S.! Held in Atlanta, Ga. and in its 25th year, the convention boasts attendance of 40,000, plus a large list of guests from actors to artists and more!"
Now if I were going, I would go as the best Dragon of them all.....the Last one.....

Lightsaber Battle in NYC

From the same organizers that brought you the NYC pillow fight, comes the Lightsaber battle, where you will promise to have the most socially awkward 30+ year olds per square foot in all of the tri-state area that night!!!

"Join us for a massive battle of Jedi vs. Sith in downtown New York City. Pick a side of the force and use that venerable, ancient, glowing tool: the lightsaber, in the ultimate nocturnal showdown."
At least it gives these guys a night off from complaining on the Lucasfilm Bulletin Board sites about how.  and probably some much needed exercise.....

Inspirational Tuesday Video

Tuesdays suck.  You're at the beginning of the week, weekends still seems far away.  Hope this helps........

What the hell does MTV stand for anyway?

They don't play music videos, so what the hell is the point of a Video Music Award..

Jersey Shore cast member missing from VMA's

Hurricane Irene forced Jersey Shore cast member Situation from attending the Video Music Awards last night.

"I wish I could be at the VMA's but all flights were grounded because of the Hurricane," ..
I honestly tried to watch the VMA's last night, but only made it to 5 minutes in when I saw Led Zeppelin band member Jimmy Page perform with Lady Gaga (my eyes are still burning.)  My only question is, how many Awards did Snooki win?

"The sea was angry that day my friends, an old man trying to send back soup at the deli."

A very toxic soup like this gentleman found out....

"it doesn't taste  great"

I have to give it to Tucker, he hung in there.  Though if science taught me correctly, since the substance was of a toxic  nature, it is only a matter of time till he develops a superpower of some sort.

Dreamy Ryan Gosling Breaks up Fight

An amateur video was captured of a fight in the St Mark section of Manhattan. It all started when,( ahh who gives a shit? ).....Who but dreamy Notebook star, Ryan Gosling to diffuse the situation..

" As a number of other people try to tear two quarrelling men apart, Gosling suddenly appears and walks toward the altercation on 8th Street in the East Village. He drops his belongings on the street and manages to separate the two men while trying to peacefully play referee"

And with half a hug, Ryan Gosling was able to stop a fight. Half a hug.... Who knows what a whole hug may cure or solve:
  • The Trillion Dollar National Debt
  • Most, if not all types of cancer
  • World Hunger

5.9 Earthquake in the East Coast

Well, there was a 5.9 Earthquake on the East Coast (aka probably a typical day in California)...

"An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.9 struck near Washington, D.C., the U.S. Geological Survey said."

"A couple of minor injuries and some minor structural damage have been reported in Washington, following Tuesday's earthquake, according to Schlosser...."

Photos of the devastation have been coming in. Please be warned, this is a disturbing image....

No wonder why New York City pizza is so good....AND AWESOME

It's all in the WATER!!!
"The city's Department of Environmental Protection drew samples from three upstate watersheds between March and December last year and analyzed them for 72 compounds, including antibiotics and prescription drugs..."
"The DEP said the tests detected 14 drugs and personal care products at least once..."

No wonder why my body does go through a range of emotional/physiological changes whenever I drink the tap water and consume a New York City slice...

It's a tough time for everyone, even Superheroes!!!

Superheroes, usually the ones fighting crime, sometimes find themselves on the other side of the law. Take this instance where a man dressed up like a Ninja Turtle robbed a Wendy's:

"ninja turtle robber 262x214 Ninja Turtle robs a Wendys in Wisconsin

"Police say that a man clad in a mask like the one pictured left held up the Wendy’s last week.According to the police report, two men were responsible for the robbery with one dressed up in the aforementioned Ninja Turtle attire along with a very un-turtlelike blue sweatshirt"

It would have been funnier had it been a Pizza Hut or Papa John's.

We even find Spiderman in on the action:

"...The man who aimed the gun at the clerk was wearing the Spider-Man mask. The other robber can be seen wearing a blue mask in the video..."

J Jonah Jameson always said that Spiderman was a menace..

I guess I shouldn't be surprised if I see in the headlines a guy dressed up as Green Lantern robbing a Home Depot or someone in a Captain America get-up embezzling funds out of a non-profit organization..
