Being Naughty This Christmas Could Get You Arrested

Wow, what a long time since I have blogged again, but I believe I will start writing them again soon since I have found more time(Christmas break and all...), and more interesting stories...

Staying in the spirit of Christmas I wanted to share this story about a mother who is angry, helpless, and in need of discipline in her son. The mother called the cops on her son because he opened his Christmas present early(Yes I laughed too)... The present, a Gameboy Advance, was a gift to him from his Great Grandmother.He had opened and hid the present that he was told not to open both by his mother and great grandmother. Both only realized that the son took the Gameboy after noticing the present wasn't under the tree. The mother told her son to bring her the Gameboy or she was going to call the cops. The boy at first refused, but eventually brought it down, but the mother called the police anyway. She stated that the boy was disruptive and had previous accounts of bad behavior, such as shoplifting. The mother hoped that the arrest would be a wake up call for him, to get rid of the disorderly behavior. The police could not arrest the boy because of his age, but since both the mother and great grandmother were so persistent, he is going to appear in front of the Department of Juvenile Justice and have a hearing there.

The police were astounded that something like this was reported. As one cop said:

"Yeah it's strange..."
Well the point of the story is that even if Santa brings you a present when you're naughty, mommy might take it away and get you arrested... Above pictured is the actual police report about the case, click to read....

New Spiderman 3 Trailer!!!

Hey everybody, good to be back, I haven't posted anything lately, but I was just surfing around, and found a new leaked trailer for Spiderman 3 so click on the link and enjoy...

I just wanted to add, that I am really looking forward to this one, seeing how it has multiple villains, which definitely makes a superhero movie (or comic, or TV show for that matter) much more exciting. This movie has 3!! Lets see how Spiderman will handle them.

James Franco as Harry Osborne(Either the second Green Goblin

(P.S. You do need Quicktime for this video, but seeing how most of us are computer savvy, I don't think it'll matter...)

Say Uncle!

Yeah, yeah I know a corny title, but hey thats just who I am. It's been a long time since I have posted, so I thought what better to restart than a joyous occasion of birth. Well, even this blog is overdue, about a month ago my sister had a daughter, and now I'm an uncle. Her name is Abir, and she is small and fragile and very cute. It's very fun to have a child in your house it adds an enlightened joyous feeling, that nothing else can create Anyways, here are some pictures of Abir. Enjoy.

Meow or M!@w?

I can't even believe the people in this world, this story is just so stupid, you know that it's real. Apparently this 78 year old lady, Alexandria Carasia, forced the Loughner family to remove their cat, because it was using her garden as a litter box. She then called the police when Michael Loughner, age 14, started "meowing" at her. The boy now is being charged for harassment. The boy says that he has only said "meow" to her twice, while she is complaining that she has had to deal with it for 3 years. The Defense Attorney states that this case should be dropped and should have never have been filed, the judge has listened to both sides, and is going to give ruling in 90 days. Wow, what a world we live in, this story doesn't live up to the "Coffee is too hot, sue'em mentality," but it sure is close, but remember not to meow in public in the future, it may get you arrested...

Hoped you liked the title, took a little time... but guess what I found out now you can Audioblog!! But that's not what this post about, and no it's not about the Simpsons either. I have been reading this Graphic Novel for a while now, and have been meaning to blog about it for some time and now that I have finished reading it I can really say that it is the BEST COMIC EVER!!! The comic I am reffering to is The Watchmen, a great story that has been widely regarded as Alan Moore's best work (he also created many other great titles, such as V for Vendetta). This comic has clearly lifted the standards of comics. It showed the world that they are not just for friendless children anymore. It showed a world where the dark of man is present in all, and even in superheros.

The characters in this series, are amazing, each with their own philosophies, and mindsets, and ranks in the world. Only a few of the superheros, are actually "super" adding to the darkness of the comic. The comic is a very interesting read with a lot of excitement, and to me a little ecstacy (maybe that's taking it too far... maybe not). The world at that moment is sort of in a Incredibles type of time period in which vigilantism has been banned in the United States, and heroes are in hiding. Without revealing too much of the plot, I just have to say the story-telling is amazing in this graphic novel (which it should actually be called since its only 12 issues), it made me feel like I was watching a great epic movie, that had perfect dialogue and scene changes, and flashbacks. It was surreal, even if you aren't a big comic book reader, you will enjoy it, heck it made the NY Times Top 100 Books of All Times (since 1923 (whats up with that)) list...

So check out the Watchmen you will enjoy it... or I'll pay $5 (really I will)

One Small Slip for man... One Giant Mistake for Mankind

Well there has always been debate on if the moon landing has been real, (There have been 6 moon landings people!!! It's not fake) but this is just surreal. I read on Arstechnica a few days ago, but it just came up again today. NASA (that's the National Aeronautic and Space Administration, if you didn't know) has LOST THE MOON LANDING VIDEOS!!!! Can you believe it?!?

I mean these guys are supposed to be responsible, I know people make mistakes, and they are only human, but even a dog remembers which fire hydrant he's been too. You can read the article for the whole story, but to summarize: The tapes were housed in the Goddard Space Center in Maryland, and were withdrawn sometime ago, apparently the tapes have gone missing, yet are not assumed to be stolen just "lost." Great we just lost a great achievement of the human race, wouldn't it have been funny if the guy who invented the wheel lost it, and had actually slowed down the advancement of man... There can only be one "first" moon walk, now that it's lost it feels like humanity has not accomplished anything in the last century except war and chaos.

Some Traditions should stay...

like the way they used to make cartoons. In my young days, there were some great cartoons. In fact they even ran after I stopped watching, but unfortunately most of them got cancelled, and if they stayed they were changed. When I was young Pokémon was the coolest thing ever (though I never got into the trading card thing.) and back then it was a pretty good cartoon, along with Digimon , which was better, because it had good vs. evil at a bigger scale, as well as the issue of saving the world. However, now the only cartoon I could watch without pointing out flaws was Spongebob Squarepants, and of course the Simpsons (but that's more like an animated sitcom, not a cartoon). Spongebob Squarepants was the greatest cartoons because of its comedy and its lessons, along with the way it was told. Though this blog isn't about Spongebob Squarepants, it's about Avatar: The Last Airbender...

Nickelodeon finally did something right after all, a cartoon with this possibility of greatness, hasn't come along in a long time. The story is based of 4 types of people, each type based on Aristotle's four elements (Actually Aristotle had five elements, but Aether is only in space and in the heavens) . There is the Earth Kingdom, the Water Tribe, the Fire Nation and the Air Nomads. The conflict began when the Fire Nation attacked the other three nations. Now Aang (the main character), the Avatar and the Last Airbender, has to save the world.

Now all of you are thinking, "that's great but what is an Airbender?" Well Airbender's are sort of warriors, to fight they bend the air and control it to attack their enemies or defend themselves. Now there are also Waterbenders, Earthbenders, and Firebenders, each controlling their own element. Aang on the other hand has to master all four types of bending, to become an Avatar and save the world.

Avatar: The Last Airbender is a very interesting show with great comedy, I have laughed out loud so many times while watching this show, it is hilarious. I recommend you all try to see it. I bet Nickelodeon is running re-runs of the show, and the new episodes start in September. So try to get into it and enjoy... I know I did.
