No training remote?  WTF?

It should teach you that a guy like Moss, who is as fickle as can be as a football player, is highly dependent on someone serving him well.  Same holds true as for Owens.  With respect to Housh, it only shows he overperformed last year, something I truly enjoyed and benefitted from but guys are expecting him to perform as a #1 which he really isn't.  He is, for the most part, a possession receiver.  And with Ocho underperforming, he's getting hurt too. 

I'd agree that Moss is fickle, though I still don't get why NE is THAT bad this year.  I think its more a combination of conservative play calling and they're just not as good when they aren't cheating.

Owens is not the same caliber at all.  He's thrived under every QB he's worked with as far as I can remember.  His problem is that he can't shut his mouth and that gets him into trouble.

I also don't believe Housh overperformed last year versus this year.  I think the problem with Cinci is their run game.  C. Perry is averaging under 3 yards per carry and inthe games I've watched, defenses are overly focused on shutting down the receivers and preventing big plays.  That should be opening up the run game, but Perry's not doing his part to keep defenses honest and that's killing Housh.  It also doesn't help to have a gimpy Chad Johnson, since he had been drawing double coverage the last few years.

As for focus on RBs, I don't think you'd be enjoying a winning season with Steven Jackson, Brandon Jackson, W. McGahee, or L. Maroney on your squad.  Even LT and AP have underperformed so far this year.  Now if you had Owens, Fitzgerald, Boldin, Marshall, etc. you'd be doing pretty well.

Well, after scoring only 30 points this week I know what NOT to do in next year's draft...

And what is that?  Frankly this season has not taught me anything about who to draft or who will even be a good start next week.  When guys like H. Ward and L. Evans are blowing away R. Moss and houshmanzadeh, what does that teach you?  The only thing I've learned is to not waste so much time preparing for the season since pretty much each and every player has been wildly unpredictible.

A friend helped me out with the Imperial Knights and Cade/Talon comic packs this week...close to actually being caught up for a change!

With the Clone Wars series about to go into full swing, I wonder if the next Kuby series might be of that theme. Any one else interested in a CW line of 'bricks?

I'd be all over this depending on who they make.  I've avoided most of the prequel stuff, but the Clone Wars could be really cool.  I'd love to see a wave something like this:

 - Anakin
 - ARC Trooper
 - Ahsoka
 - General Obi-Wan in Clone Armor
 - Durge
 - Ventress

So anyone else get the vibe that Angela is pregnant.  She's been hooking up with Dwight, and during the weigh-in said that her doctor wants her to gain weight.  I mean, she's petite, but not scary small, so I think its because she's with "Shrute". :)

I liked the way Jim proposed, very much in keeping with how their relationship is, not too formal, but very much focused on all the little things, like where they first ate lunch together, etc.

One of the best scenes was when Holly tried to stop Angela from yelling at Kevin.  I am surprised that Dwight wasn't again punished by Michael for that, like maybe he'd have to make him breakfast, in addition to doing his laundry, plus that way Michael won't burn his foot again (Win-Win-Win).

This was a great episode overall.  The show is at its best when Michael is awkward like this versus when they make him a total jerk (shock does not always equal funny).  The proposal was great and totally threw me off, since Pam seemed to be getting more and more preoccupied at school.  Dwight is still the best thing going on that show.

Damn, yup that's it for him.  Not sure when Parker's due back, but given the pounding he'll inevitably face, and his smaller stature, he'll not last without a competent back-up.

Mendenhall was kickin' some ass last night too.  That's gotta be disappointing for him.

I think its safe to say that having a fractured shoulder is dissapointing whether you're already having a good night or not.   ;)

I have an Excel list of regular figs and major variations dating back to POTF2.  I'm betting the list has 99% of all the major variations that have popped up.  I'm running through now and changing the format on a few things*, but it should be ready in a week or two if anyone wants an Excel based customizable checklist for their stuff.


*I'm fixing it so that you can easily filter on all versions of a single character (i.e. Luke Skywalker and all the versions of Luke that have been made since 1995.

More confirmations to destroy your childhood memories

If you get to the part at the end that starts "According to Google Translate..." you should stop reading or your head will explode from the stupidity of what follows.

The bodies on these are pretty cool, but that weird head converted into a stormie or vader is not for me.

I can't believe that nobody has chimed in about how this new design will be shattering their childhood memories.  Apparently folks just don't care about this movie anymore.  Oh well.   :)

I would have, but risk sounding like a broken record (odd statement, since a broken record probably doesn't make any sound at all).

All of em!

There's always room for a Rattler.    ;)

On our way home from visiting my Wife's grandmother yesterday, we pulled into a convenience store to pick up a couple things.  They didn't have what I needed, so I just grabbed a bottle of water for my Wife who had waited in the car.  As I'm standing at the counter, literally 2 feet from the counter, another customer steps in front of me and sets his arm load of items on the counter, without saying "excuse me", or "I'm just going to set this down", right in front of where I'm standing, not on any other part of the big counter that wraps around (like 20 feet of counter space), so I say "Excuse me", no response, "Excuse me, sir!", the guy half turns and walks back towards the rest of the store past me, announcing that he wasn't "cutting", saying that I don't need to call him "sir" (I didn't realize that was no longer a polite term for an adult man you don't know...).  The clerk, who had just gotten to the register, sheepishly apologized about the people that come in sometimes.  I guess I won't be going back to that store.  Did I miss something and its ok to set something in front of someone who is already at the register without saying anything to them, wouldn't it be better to say, I'm just setting this down, or put it over to the side.....

I'd like to know what the guy was buying that was either so heavy or so bulky that he had to set it down anyway.  Seriously, has anyone ever bought so much stuff a C-store that you had to set it down?  "Stang, this 16oz soda and box of candy are too heavy to hold on to for the 90 seconds I'll be in line!"


I think the inclusion of R2-D2 is actually pretty important to this set. 

Why?  I'd rather see a new Ewok or a Rebel Commando given the potential for a different scene.
