Daft Punk Robots, Snoop Dizzle, Beckham in Star Wars Cantina scene

This could've been a little better, snapier, punchier ... but hey, I'll take it. I applaud the effort:

The Zeitgeist of the late 80s and early 90s TV

I was in pure heaven with shows like Sledgehammer, Parker Lewis Can't Lose and ALF.

This all fits in with my obsession with movies like Pee-Wee's Big Adventure and 3 O'Clock High.

Yes! Finally found the old KTVU Raider Dog, Humphrey!

I've been looking for this for a long time. Thank you, YouTube, I don't know what I'd do without you!

YOUTUBE is the Best Around:

Millarworld crossover spread - Superior, Nemesis and Kick A$$

Nice. These are some of the best comics in the biz right now. Thanks goodness for Marvel's indie label, Icon. It allows creators like Mark Millar to really spread out to create and own their own characters. Long live the indie spirit of comics and their creators!

Shutterfly is the best Web site for doing photo stuff

I've used quite a few different Web sites and programs for storing photos, uploading direct to blogs, printing pix, making calendars, making memory books from pictures, etc. I have to stay, Shutterfly is the best I've experienced so far. Right now they have some pretty awesome promotions going, including 50 free prints for personalized Christmas photo cards. Score!

That's a dern good promo ... way better that your typical grocery store promos like Buy 2, Get 1 Free or 10-for-$10. Who needs 10 cans of chili anyway ... except if you're really savvy, you know you don't have to buy 10 cans of chili, you can buy 1 for $1. No such confusion with Shutterfly. What you see is what you get.

The prints come out looking good and you can easily crop and customize your stuff with graphics and text. It’s all pretty user friendly, so it gets the O-dogg stamp of approval. Enjoy taking pix this holiday season, shutterbugs! ‘Nuff said.

Mattel's new 12" Christopher Reeve as Superman

I'm not a DC Comics guy, but this is pretty dope. Very lifelike. I may have to pick this one up, it's just too good.

Tuxedo Time: Treasure Island, here I come

Should be fun, as black tie events always are. Except, I'm gonna put a wrinkle in it with a brown tux and real bow tie and vest. Only the best, for your boy O-dogg.

Raiders on a roll - suck it AFC West!

Werd. Raiders are 3-0 in the division (NOT the AFC West conference as idiots like JT The Brick call it). Bye week sucks, but hey, let's get healthy and take down Pittsburgh and their annoying, front-running fans.

A Tribute to the Great Rick Tittle - Extra Sports 860 AM

Here's to the greatest sportstalk radio host ever- Oakland's own Rick Tittle - a devout fan of all things Oakland. Raiders. A's. Warriors. Salesian High. St. Mary's. Cal. He even has mad knowledge of the Westham United football club (even though it's not his favorite club). It's all good on Titillating Sports from 10 am - noon on Extra Sports 860 AM.

Thanks for turning me back onto Metric, Rick. The music brings back good vibes - and makes for good bumper music during commercial breaks.

Entertainment Weekly plot details on Captain America


We all know the story of Captain America – a scrawny solider named Steve Rodgers undergoes an experiment and becomes a superman. Since Evans got all bulked up for the role, in the scenes where he is scrawny, Johnston will use “clever camera angles, costume trickery and special effects that will digitally reduce Evans’ body or even put his face on a skinny actor.

The main plot features “Captain America as the leader of a team of elite soldiers from various countries , known in the comic books as the Howling Commandos.” And that mission will certainly deal with the Red Skull (Weaving), Hitler’s head of weaponry and the Tesseract, aka, the Cosmic Cube.

Since Captain America: The First Avenger is the last Marvel film before Joss Whedon’s The Avengers, it has to set up that film. But it’s set several decades in the past. So, the film will begin and end with the classic frozen in ice storyline. Prologue and epilogue style.

The classic comic book costume with the wings on the head and stuff WILL appear in the movie. Evans wears it during one scene where he’s used as a tool for propaganda. He hates it though and afterwards goes to Howard Stark of Stark Industries to help him build the new, more advanced suit that’s in most of the film.
