totally smitten.

Okay, so updates are in order.

We WILL have an actual flash cartoon by the end of October, just in time for Halloween. So update your flash player for our first try at AWESOMENESS!

in the mean time and between time, this video is what I've been watching on repeat for four reasons.

1. Band is awesome
2. She can sing extremely well.
3. Dynamic and catchy song.
4. Uh, I think I'm in love with her cause of reason 2? Don't judge me for my pop guilty pleasure.

So, enjoy the video and stay tuned for updates - we promise this time! ;)

The Mid Summer Classic

The MLB All Star Game has come and gone and has marked the halfway point of not only the baseball season but the summer season as well. Now baseball has things that make it unique from any other sport. Basketball has the slam dunk, Hockey has the uninterrupted fisticuffs, Football has the endzone celebrations/dance, and Baseball has the unique art of manager/coach/player vs umpire arguments. In every sport a player or coach can be ejected for misconduct, but only in baseball does the ejection become on art form. Managers and coaches who and enraged get their money's worth and give the umpires an ear full of sweet nothings before they go back to the locker room. And this unique phenomena is seen in almost every level of baseball from professional to amateur leagues. I have been interning for a baseball team this summer in a college summer league and the more memorable things I will remember are seeing the coach arguing and getting ejected by the umpire. There are stories of fathers being tossed in their sons little league game, so this gesture is apart of the game as fighting is in hockey. Here is a video of the most amazing and hilarious baseball ejection brought to you by Phillip Wellman a minor league manager of the Mississippi Braves. And enjoy the rest of your summer!

Summer = movies

I haven't posted in this thing for a LONG time, but now its time for one of my random rants. Summer has come upon us and that only means one thing, summer movie blockbusters. That's right all the movies that we've seen previews for the past months are finally being released. And of course some of the movies that are/coming out are gonna be awesome or suck or somewhere in between depending on ones taste in movies.

I recently saw the new installment of Transformers, and if you liked the first one you will love this one. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, comes back with the characters Sam (Shia LaBeouf), Mikaela (Super hot Megan Fox), Optimus, Bumble Bee and the rest of the transformers are back to save Earth from destruction from Megatron and the Decepticons. Just like that first film the film is not shy of starting off with action and destruction and explosions. We can thank all the pyrotechnics to the director of both films Michael Bay. The new film is not shy from the firework display throughout the film. Here is a clip inside the mind of Michael Bay brought to you by none other than South Park

And don't get me wrong I came into the film thinking it wasn't going to be great, but I did throughly enjoy it. I only had a few problems with the film and I might sound nitpicky with this. Well first of all the length of the film, 2 1/2 hours! I believe most films should stay at the 2hr mark. Even though the film didn't have many dull/slow moments I did catch myself looking at the time a couple of times. Second was the amount of plot lines that was being shown in the film. The film of course focused around Sam Witwicky and the Autobots and N.E.S.T. and of course a good narrative usually has 2 plots, A-story B-story, that go back and forth and eventually intertwine by the resolution. But with the over two hours of film, it still seemed that there was still too much going on for one narrative. Many things could have been cut out and still would have still made the film enjoyable. Including things that could have been toned down was the amount of comic relief in the film. It is necessary to keep an action film of this magnitude to enjoy. Jive talking twin Autobots? Mother Witwicky eating weed brownies? funny but almost unnecessary. Finally the action scenes were easier to follow than the last film, but that does not necessarily mean I still fully grasped what was going on when giant robots fight each other. If someone didn't randomly say Optimus or Bumble Bee when the fight was going on it was hard to determine who was winning til the end of battle.

Overall, I did enjoy the film and it met my expectations. But hopefully the rest of the summer films will be better than Transformers. Sorry for such the long post, but I needed to make up for lack of posting on the blog.
