The Big Wicked Online Pageant!!

Everyone's favorite blogger of all things pop culture, The Pop Eye, is hosting The Big Wicked Online Pageant to celebrate all of our costumed glory days!! I decided to get going early with one of my favorite costumes that my mom made in the days of Sky-Dad's youth, the monster.  My mom rocked at costumes, she was excellent at both ideas and execution. Check out my bad 9 year old self:

Bad Tat Tuesday

Special shout out to frequent reader Dan, who emailed me these absolutely wonderful Unicorn tats!  Not that I'm judging or anything, but where did you find these buddy?  OK, OK, I am backing off, my surfing is all for "research" purposes also... Is it a tribute to mom, or is that his weird vision of mom eating pizza? When you can piss rainbows that turn into cupcakes, you get to claim #1 also! And adding unicorn bling... How can it get more awesome than Robocop riding a Unicorn? Kind of creepy for a star wars tribute, I'm just sayin. Don't call me Shirley.

Monday Morning Random Madness.

Just some random weirdness I have found to help purge my brain of that Broncos debacle. This would have been a better movie. This would have been an awesome movie! Only bendy people need attempt this. If you look up awesome, this is the photo. That is how we roll. Compound eye Walrus sees all. I laughed, oh yes... I laughed hard! I think it is more of a back off the dosage warning. I call this one "Issues" Life is wonderful if you have waffle on a stick capabilities. Caption this please. Conjoined?  Or just extra weird? Nobody gave him shit about his backpack after he started packing the RPG

A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste

Attention K-Mart Shoppers.  We have a little lost boy in Hardware that answers to Sky-Dad, and he seems to have wet himself. What the hell has happened to me lately (or not so lately if you have known me for awhile)?  I used to kind of have my shit together, fairly intelligent guy who knew a little about a lot of things and a lot about a few things.  But now?  You be the judge... I had to take my car in for service to get the fan in the heater fixed.  It was making this loud screeching sound for the past, oh, lets just say couple of years.  My appointment was for today, but it didn't work out dropping the car off this morning with everything going on.  So, I took it over to the mechanic last night and dropped it off.  Yeah me for being so on top of it and working around the busy morning issue. I had planned on going to the gym and working out early at 0-dark thirty this morning, so last night Kathy told me that I should back the van out of the garage for the morning. Why, I

Bad Tat Tuesday!

Boy these Tuesdays really seem to sneak up on me!  You just turn around and all the sudden you have missed a week and now you are late.  But fear not people, this weeks collection of crap will not disappoint!  Buffy The Vamp Slayer!  Just a bit busy and not too great...  It was. Now, not so much.  Holy overdone Batman!  What do we have going on here?  This tat cannot be explained.  My question is, Why not finish the other pistol?  I would actually consider a Calvin and Hobbes.  Leftover from the skateboard thugs theme.  Proud of his choice of Motor Cycle.  I wonder if the dude in the background is impressed, or thinks it sucks.  Maybe he is just stoned...  Great work, but Uber-creepy!  There are no words for how awful this is.  Nice Rack.  There, somebody was going to say it. That tat must be as old as the hill, or this is a really bad shot.

Movie Review: Secretariat

There seemed to have been a fair amount of hype generated over this movie prior to it coming out, which usually is a red flag to me.  The trailers looked good, and I have always loved the story of the horse, but I thought that I might come away thinking that it wasn't much more than the sum of the several 60 second bites I saw. This is an amazing movie.  Diane Lane gives a great performance as Penny Chenery, and has received a lot of Oscar hype, but in my opinion, John Malkovich steals every scene he is in as the trainer Lucien Laurin.  He is wonderful. But I think the story is mostly about Penny fighting to be recognized as an intelligent women in the late 60's/early 70's more than the horse itself.  She goes through quite a lot making her way in an old white guys club, and doesn't back down. The absolute #1 reason you have to see this movie though, and see it in a theater, is the cinematography.  This is what should get this movie an academy award nod, more so t

Welcome once again to Poorly Translated Signs!

I seriously can't get enough of these, I just love the weirdness that comes out of really bad translations!  Here are a few that came my way over the past few weeks, enjoy! I always walk more slowly when I am hard. Women playing the erect bamboo flute?  Say what?!? I usually get stuck during reflenishing too. Adjectives should never be allowed in the noun bathing area. But leave your tin. That's right lady!  Push it!  Come on you! Who doesn't like one? Kind of I suppose... That's right, just lump us all together. Only Rick Shaw's beard knows! They are heros I tell you! Dirty damned tortoises. Wow, where to begin? It take far less than that to make me slobber. Not if you are a guy. I'm going to need a bit more clarification please. So if you are having a picnic with your ex, take them with you. Sargent and above only. Come on Asia, words hurt too! Ummm... Don't turn round the
