Another TLC Show Clone

leave a comment »

With this and other programs like “Toddlers & Tiaras,” “Extreme Couponing All-Stars,” “100 Kids and Counting,” “Hoarders” and “Outrageous Kids Parties,” the only thing I’m learning on The Learning Channel is that people are crazy.

I Cloned My Pet is about the extraordinary world of pet cloning and gives a telling snap shot of life in the twenty first century. We explore the world of these pet cloners and find out if they succeed in bringing their beloved pets to life and if the colossal financial sacrifices are worth it.

Never Underestimate The Power Of The Girth Side

leave a comment »

I find your lack of a good cholesterol count … disturbing.

A French fast food chain has gone over to the dark side with its upcoming promotion for a movie tie-in.

France’s restaurant chain “Quick” has launched a “Dark Vador” burger with black buns to coincide with the 3D release, later this year, of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

Although the buns look like they’ve been burnt, they are in fact merely dyed, and have two beef patties with cheese, lettuce and tomato between.

Another burger, titled the “Jedi Burger” bears a vague resemblance to Yoda.

The Star Wars-themed meals will be unleashed in Quick burger chains in March.

If that Jedi Burger is going to resemble Yoda, I hope it’s not green. Might turn off some customers — and attract a health inspector.

Black And Blue

A rapper stealing someone else’s music? Why I never…

A songwriter from the Western Pennsylvania borough of Sharon who goes by the stage name Maxamillion, has filed a federal $2.3 million copyright infringement lawsuit against Wiz Khalifa, claiming Khalifa’s chart-topping hit “Black and Yellow” was derived from his own song “Pink N Yellow.”

Max Gregory Warren filed the suit Dec. 30 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania court, claiming that he wrote “Pink N Yellow” in 2007 and copyrighted it in February 2008. He is seeking a portion of profits for the song, which went to No. 1 on the charts in February 2011.

I’m Not A Survivor

leave a comment »

It’s that time of year again for Mrs. kkk’s favorite shows to watch. So what color babushka is a “Survivor” widower supposed to wear?

And during the first commercial break, the better half rose from the dead to inform me there’s already a challenge six minutes into this stupid show. Note to self: get locks for the upstairs computer room.

New AFLAC Voice Quacks Me Up

leave a comment »

LOL at the new AFLAC voice-over guy, and not in a good way.

Then again, it may be my Gilbert Gottfried bias creeping in.

The Force Is Weak With This Blu Ray

leave a comment »

Oh you got to be kidding me. When I first heard about this, I thought it was a joke. (Someone please tell me this is a joke; I’ll be happy to get pwned, or whatever, in this instance.

Fans are seeing more edits from the Blu Ray edition of the “Star Wars” films, and well, a whole bunch are rather vexed.

Complaining about how and what George Lucas changes in his movies feel like a waste of time and energy to me, but that’s not stopping hordes of “Star Wars” fans from seething online over what seem to be pretty pointless tweaks. The Blu-Ray edition isn’t even out yet — it drops Sept.16 — and much of the furor stems from videos on YouTube allegedly syncing up a leaked audio clip with existing video.

Whether the videos reflect real changes — or are just a horrific hoax — the one drawing the most outrage appears to be the climax in “Return of the Jedi” when Darth Vader turns against the Emperor to save Luke Skywalker. For a reason I certainly can’t fathom, LucasFilm has apparently decided to voice in a comment from Vader for emphasis. So he says “no.” Twice.

Using My Smarts — For Once

leave a comment »

And to think during my formative years I used to annually buy the latest Madden/NHL/NBA/MLB/NCAA video games. I swear the depreciation on these games is worse than that of buying a new car.

If I only took that money I wasted during those years and invested it … well, it probably would have vanished in one of the stock market dips since 1994. At least with Lakers v. Celtics you could beat Michael Jordan in the playoffs. Take that, Blue Chips.

I still play sports games, but now I just buy a used copy of Madden/MLB/etc. and keep it for the life of whatever console I have. Besides, being a “franchise” freak, it’s not like I’ll go through 10 seasons of whatever sport I’m playing at the time in a weekend.
