Zombieland (8/10)

This was a somewhat refreshing take on the zombie genre with funny, Zombie Survival Guide inspired narration. The movie does come to a grinding halt about two-thirds the way through when the characters hold up in a mansion for the sole purpose of throwing in a lame cameo. Also, I take umbrage to the term zombie being applied here. In this film, the monsters are sick people and not the walking dead. Heck, they are not even walking. Fast "zombies" suck.

Split Second (3/10)

A terrible sci-fi monster movie where the action exists mainly in the form of Rutger Hauer grabbing other characters by the shirt collar and slamming them against the wall to prove his renegade-ness. Some of the worst dialogue ever captured on film.

The Printmakers vs. The Painters

From my series about my art experiences, this print is my take on the jealousy printmakers feel against painters. In the art world, printmaking has a sort of second class status beneath painting. Sort of in the way RC Cola™ has always taken a back seat to Coca-Cola™. RC is usually cheaper, it's not as flashy, you don't see top celebrities endorsing it, but it tastes just as good (I'd say it's even better) than the entrenched status-quo softdrink, Coca-Cola™. Anyways, if it were ever to come down to fisticuffs the printers would win anyway because we have sharper tools.

The Art Critique

In graduate school I made a series of five etching which were about art and my graduate school experiences. This image was one of the earlier ones from the series. Basically, I hate art critiques. They are boring and they bring out all sorts of cliched remarks, especially in an art school setting. This image depicts some of the stereotypes I noticed over the years The composition is ripped from a Bosch painting, Ecce Homo.

Dolph Lundgren Awesome

Dolph Lungren's Cultural Sensitivity

Here's the mighty Dolph Lungren from the movie Showdown in Little Tokyo. I highly recommend it for lovers of bad movies. This movie just reaks of super-awesome-tude. In the above scene, Dolph looks like he is doing a little stand-up at the Improv. He is, in fact, getting connected with his Japanese cultural roots by dressing like a Karateman and then machine gunning pony-tailed Yakuzas who wear double-breasted suits.

You Don't Mess With The Zohan (4/10)

A heavy handed attempt at goofball comedy that fails at least 95% of the time. The makers of this film don't seem to grasp how to make a comedy that builds up effectively. They throw some of the wildest jokes in the first ten minutes and then the movie comes to a grinding halt, occasionally bringing back recurring gags that weren't very funny to begin with.

Oh, Hello There...

Although I try to minimize political posting here on the Pages of Fun, about a week ago I decided to run with a post featuring a "Tea Party" protest poster I created: Teabagger / Teabaggee. I tweeted (I hate that term... almost as much as webinar) a link, got a few dozen hits and that was that.

However, yesterday I started to get all sorts of notifications of new comments in my inbox regarding this post. I went and checked my analytics account:
