RING MY GEEK BELL!!








I haven't shown my Geek side in a long time, so here goes:


Book of Eli on Friday, I have been talking about it for a long time and its finally out. I thought I was going to see it alone, but it seems I have a date for the movie. Yeah Me!! LOL

It's not a romantic date, more of a friendly date to get to know each other. It's a safe date for me, there are no expectations(They live in London anyway)nothing more than food, movies, maybe a club and then fucking Simple!! My head is not into the whole finding the person to settle down with anymore...... I know sad.

Geek alerts:

Clash of Titans


The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus:


Tron Legacy:


Most know about Iron Man2, Alice in Wonderland so I won't go into it, but 2010 will be the year of the Geek(I love it). I know I havent kept in touch with my geek side for a long time, sorry fellow geeks.

I'm going to pre order my Comic Con 2010 tickets, and make sure I schedule time for the Comic Con 2010 here in NYC. I have my outfits ready, so my fellow geeks this year you will see Diesel Washington armed and ready for war!!!!

Any older geeks remember when getting up in the morning, on a Saturday was the event when you were a kid????. I used to get up at 8am(when a kid)to watch Saturday morning cartoons. It sucks that the kids nowadays have no Saturday day cartoons, well there is Cartoon Network/Boomerang but you have to have Premium cable to get those channels. I was a poor kid growing up in New York, so Saturday was the day that everything good happened. Cartoons at 8am to noon, then Lunch and then U went outside to play. But U ran back to the TV around 3pm to watch Drive In theather on the Fox channel(Kung Fu flicks)and that was crowning moment of a 12yr.But back to my love my cartoons....

I'm a grown man, and I still watch cartoons to this day.

WTF??? Can someone tell me why cartoons today suck ass!??!!

Loney Tunes.....were my cartoons and then they ruined it by taking out all the racist shit they used to say. Nobody remembers Speedy Gonzales and other Racist shit Looney tunes used to do???? Here you go:





These cartoons were so long ago..........I still love the old Bugs Bunny cartoons it was just a different time...I hold no grudges, these cartoons are part of American history...if we dont know where We came from, we will be doomed to go back there.....

The newer Bugs Bunny cartoons, are terrible!!

Tom and Jerry, now have talking roles???? The worst!!

What happened to He Man???? The ThunderCats??? Silver Hawks??? GI Joe???

Only the old timers will remember these cartoons.....What happened to G Force???? Voltron???

And the list goes on:

Birdman and the Galaxy Trio......... Biiirrrddd Maaannnn!!! love that show!!

Captain Caveman....Captain CAAAVVVVEEMMMAAANNN!!!!

Cow and Chicken........stoner cartoon

Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines....this goes way way back!!

Dynomutt, Dog Wonder......goofy and funny!!

The Flintstones.......who didn't like this show???

The Herculoids.......What the fuck was Gloop and Gleep??? Were they related???

Hong Kong Phooey........number one superguy!!! I remember that show, wasn't the voice of Hong Kong the same black guy that played the Night watchmen in the movie The Shining???

The Huckleberry Hound Show....... alittle corny but I liked it

Jabberjaw....another corny show but I liked it

The Jetsons.....who didn't like this show???

Jonny Quest......one of my favorite cartoons, this was almost an Adult cartoon with heavy storylines.

Josie and the Pussycats............I only liked the show when it was Josie and Pussycats in outerspace really.

Magilla Gorilla.........it was the show to watch, Magilla always got into trouble!!

The Powerpuff Girls........this show was gay!!! I guess that is why I liked it so much LOL

The Quick Draw McGraw Show.......old old old school, this was before my time but I watch this on Boomerang

Scooby-Doo..........who can forget the theme song.....Scooby Scooby-Doo Where are you???....

The Smurfs................this show was so smurfy, I smurf off to it all the time!!

Snorks...........not my favorite seemed like a underwater verison of the smurfs, but I found myself watching it

Space Ghost and Dino Boy............Space Ghost was my cult favorite, total Stoner cartoon....Dino Boy I still didn't understand how did all these powers come out a Wooden club, esp the power to fly?????


Basically Hanna-Barbera cartoons, were "my thing" and still is "my thing". Hanna-Barbera to me, is like Ben&Jerrys to a hungry fat man. Yummy Yummy!!

Other Favorites, Spidey and his Amazing Friends, X men cartoons, Old School Fanastic Four....

More recent Cartoons I like, Dexters Lab, The Grim adventures of Billy and Mandy. Teen Titans, Justice League

And the List wouldn't be complete, without the Cartoons I'm addicted to:

FAMILY GUY

SOUTH PARK

The Simpsons

Futurama

There are a ton of other cartoons, I can't remember them all!!! But to add to the list:

Woody woodpecker

Chilly Willy

Thundarr the Barbarian


Japanese anime is big with Me...... too many cartoons to mention but I will name a few:

Ghost in the Shell

DragonBall Z

Akriia

City Hunter

Final Fantasy

Way too many............

Hi T...thanks for the reminders of good cartoons back in the 80's etc...you left out Wiley E. Coyote one of my favourites...what about Top Cat...??..I really really enjoy Scrat out of the Ice Age movie s as its similar to Wiley E's trials and tribulations....comic books Yes when I was a kid plus the "Clasic" ones..we used to have a collection of them.. must admit I wish it was me going out to see a movie etc with you for company etc..snyway I also liked Avatar (3D) and thanks for the heads up on the new Tron movie.. that one was the 1st computer CG one I recall seeing and the idea of zapping into the insides of it...really liked that one...all the best...Rgds..Laurie

Hi T...for me the cartoons didn't develop better/smoother animation over the years. They seemed to go for cheaper production costs instead....the Japanese animé have really crude aka lazy animation even though the style etc is original etc... Rgds... Laurie
