It could thusly be argued
that Indiana Jones fought "aliens" in Raiders of the Lost Ark. It is also a sad thing that the freaking Lego Flying Wing costs like $70. I think I have the Micro Machine version, though, SWEET ACTION.
New favorite slang: qu'est-ce que fuck?
Inherited from my dad, I am sure, I will take any opportunity to butcher French for the greater humorous good. GOOD FUCK THIS IS HORRIFYING
. It reminds me of the Splicer episode from Batman Beyond. Fffffuuuuuccccckkkkkkkk~Hahaha "Mathsputin"
. Looooove iiiiit.
You know, while I appreciate the characterizations
, that logo is just... incredibly detestable. I am so sick of steampunk being OMFGGEARS! (heh heh heh, I would go for a good Disney "g-ears" pun, though.) Seriously, yo, technology, in general, has to do
something. And this is more the aestheticist than the engineer in me saying this. Just... bleh. Anyway, I think this means it's Old Hat if Disney did it and is no longer Scene and maybe it will lose some of its steam no pun intended. (Okay, totally intended afterthefact.) The sooner you can boot scenesters from any scene, the better. Please move to the Next Big Thing and mind the gap as you disembark, I'd like my functioning technology in relative peace, please and thankyou.
Also, Daisy is a fucking badass
, check that shit out yo, she is AMELIA FUCKING EARHART-ing it up in that shit!
So I found out that Crystal Skull has a Star Trek tribute, of all things. During the rocket-sled fight scene there is a wall dubbed "numbersnumbers-GNDNnumbers" which apparently is reference to Goes Nowhere, Does Nothing
. I also started reading the imdb trivia page for the movie and discovered this gem:
Harrison Ford was adamant that he got to wield Indiana's famous whip. Paramount executives wanted the weapon to be computer generated because of new film safety rules, but the actor branded the rule "ridiculous".
Dear Harrison Ford, you are my hero, thank you for being awesome. Dear George Lucas, you're still crazy as fuck, but at least this time you had Spielberg and Ford willing to tell you sometimes that you're a little bit off your rocker.
Also, this has always goddamn bothered me:
The Akator throne room designed by Guy Dyas keeps up an Indiana Jones tradition by having C-3PO and R2-D2 etched into one of the yellow titles, and E.T. into another. According to the book "The Complete Making of Indiana Jones", the characters can be found somewhere in all four Indiana Jones pictures.
They're easy to find in Raiders but WHERE THE DAMN HELL ARE THEY IN ToD and LC?
Also, I just ~can't wait~ until the original Star Wars trilogy gets re-released and re-remastered on BluRay and George Lucas decides to digitally add these Other Dimensioners to the celebration scene at the end. I mean, ET's already there, it's bound to happen at some point.
Originally Henry Jones, Sr., Short Round, Sallah and Willie Scott were to make an appearance at Indiana's wedding.
WHY DID THIS NOT HAPPEN FFFFFFFUUUUUU~
In the "making of" on the Back to the Future (1985) DVD, one of the original ideas of the time machine was as a refrigerator that Marty would climb into. Furthermore, the way Marty was to come back from 1955 was via the power of a nuclear bomb at a test site in the desert. Back to the Future was produced by Steven Spielberg. The idea was scrapped because filmmakers were afraid children would shut themselves inside of their home refrigerators to imitate the movie.
Pure. Excellence. I DON'T REGRET THAT SCENE FOR A MOMENT.
...Anyway. Speaking of GNDN, I kind of need these in my future house
, somewhere. In my super-futuristic Tony-Starkish tech lab.
(Seriously though I still want his drafting table. Rich motherfucker.)Heh heh heh, stormtroopers
. ( OLD LINKSPAMS AND STUFF THAT MAKE ME A HORRIBLE BLOGGER RIGHT NOW )
So that's what I've been up to for the past MONTH or so. Also did I mention I downloaded the Force Unleashed Lightsaber App for my iPod touch? I totally did and it's PURPLE ALL THE WAY, baby. Now I need someone to duke it out with.
...You know, the sooner Nerf makes Nerf Lightsabers, THE BETTER.
[EDIT] ALSO-ALSO, anyone play Spore or Sims 3 online? I got a code from Taco Bell and I play neither.
