Jocasta's Reading Room / New Clone Wars Novel
« on: November 23, 2004, 08:00 PM »
I was in the book store applying for work today, and I happened to notice a brand spankin new star wars book being added to the shelf, featuring Anakin all long haired and battle torn. I was wondering if some one could tell me what the title of the book is, as I was too distracted getting an application to find out?

Thanks. 8)


Watto's Junk Yard / AOL IM Problems?
« on: November 21, 2004, 02:51 PM »
Has anyone else been having trouble getting their buddy list to load correctly? AIM's been weirding out more often than not latley, and I wonder if it's just me. I know one other person who had the same problem.

How about you crew?


I was dusting off some figures and amoung them, I find a stack of these Star Wars Attack of the Clones trading card looking things, and I havent the faintest idea of where they came from. I don't recall buying any such thing. There they were, collecting dust like nobody's buisness.

Has anyone else had a similar experience?


Watto's Junk Yard / OK. Enough is enough.
« on: November 19, 2004, 12:58 PM »
I am 18. I have grey hair on my head. Family trait. Not alot, just enough so I get little comments, here and there, no big deal. I can deal with that. I was just in the bathroom and I looked in the mirror, and I noticed somthing was wrong with my beard, so I figure it's the lighting. I saw my hair was discolored. I was sure it was the lighting, so I flick on the hologen lights on the mirror. I HAVE GREY HAIR IN MY BEARD!!! I pulled one out in a fury, and I noticed it was black on the tip, faded to red, and down to grey. Then I get to looking, and it's all over my beard.

Anyone else have this darned problem when they were younger? Everyone in my family is shocked that it hit my beard. It's usualy just the head. I wanna cry. :'(


Toy Reviews / Famine's Pablo-Jill Reveiw
« on: November 17, 2004, 09:49 PM »
Welcome to my Reveiw of Pablo-Jill #1 of the Post OTC line. First thing I noticed about this figure is the really nice paint aplication on the head. The eyes are one perfectly, with a 3 layer application or orange, white, and black. The application on the "mouth" or whatever the heck that thing is above his oculars is quite nice as well. His two toned head is done nicely and it highlights the details on the sculpt.

Next thing I noticed was the weird ass pose he's in. He's squatting. Please know right now it does not detract from the figure in any way. If anything it makes him very unique. Anyway, onto his Jedi garb. He's wearing the traditional Jedi robes. His outer robe is awsomely sculped and looks pretty realistic, to say the very least. I'm sure the cloak could come off with a little work and a few dozen curse words, but I'm not about to try it.

His body parts are painted well to match the tone of his head. His neck and hands all match up very well.

Next is the articulation. I count 9 points. His arms, upper arms, hands, legs, and head, which rests on a ball, and pops right off for further inspection with a little pulling. He can be put in some darn epic poses for some one who's squatting.

This figure has no action features to detract from his awsomness at all. I tip my hat to the folks at Hasbro for making one kick ass figure.

I give it a 5 out 5.


Aparently the scanners at local WalMart are conflicting with the price on the end of the pegs. Rather than ring up the toy at 4.77, it rings them up at 5.88. This provided much confusion at the register for me. I took my purchases to the customer service desk, and they analyzed the problem, saw that I was correct, and provided me with the proper change. Is anyone else having the same problem?

Watto's Junk Yard / Going To See Drew Carey Saturday
« on: November 11, 2004, 09:11 PM »
PDubsOfTheSith has an extra ticket, so he invited me along to go see Drew Carey and his 'Who's Line' crew, at the Laf Festival at the Proctors Theatre on Saturday night. So, has anyone been to a Drew Carey thing?

This is my first comedy show I've ever been to.


Watto's Junk Yard / TV Specials
« on: November 10, 2004, 10:03 PM »
I figured since we have a Movie thread, so I figured we could use one to talk about TV Specials. So to start:

MTV Ultimate Mash Ups: Jay-Z vs. Linkin Park

"MTV Ultimate Mash-Ups: Jay-Z vs. Linkin Park
mtv ultimate mash-ups takes the hottest new advance in music creativity - mash-ups - and brings it to a raucous audience. Think concert series meets rap battle. No computers. No samples. It is immediate, it is loud, and it is live. mtv ultimate mash-ups will bring acts with the BIGGEST mainstream hits together and, in front of a live audience, challenge them to mash their songs together for the better. It's part team sport, part individual skills, and entirely new and different. The greatest rapper alive, Jay-Z, can work with anyone he wants and he wants to work with Linkin Park. Between the two, Jay and Linkin Park have combined to sell 35+ million records, won multiple Grammys and played live to packed arenas and stadiums. After the release of Jay-Z's a cappella version of THE BLACK ALBUM, DJ's all over the world used vinyl and computer programs to pair his distinctive vocals with other great works - from the Beatles to Metallica to Prince. But it's never been done live. until now. We're there as Jay steps off a plane into the Los Angeles sunshine on his way to meet with the boys from Linkin Park. It's their first meeting and the first time they'll discuss how the performance will all go down. It's just two days away. From there we will capture the discussions, rehearsals, and final performance, all in a cinematic and dramatic style. mtv ultimate mash-ups will test this new form of collaboration by completely remixing two songs into one -- LIVE. it will look different and feel different because it is different."
