The number's up.

It's true.

One of the many things that makes me look like a chump is that when asked for my cell phone number, I have to look it up. On my cell phone.

Some people are just really good at remembering phone numbers. I'm not. I mean, how often do I call myself, really?

Have you seen this man?

I thought I'd put this up for the sake of comparison. Now that you can make avatars for Xbox Live, I just had to make one for myself. It's actually kinda sad how much this looks like me.

Spending way too much time doing this.

Playing online against people far more qualified. While this video isn't me, it may as well be. I have to get back in the swing of things.

Here's a movie that just screams "remake"

Isn't the world ready for an updated version of the classic TV movie Devil Dog: Hound of Hell?

I think the most interesting thing I could tell from the trailer is that the kids who were in the Witch Mountain movies appear to be playing brother and sister again. That's kinda weird.

Oh well. I'm told it's a scary movie, but I'll have to find out once I watch it--whenever that may be.

In fear of the Irony Police

We bought Wall-E on DVD today. At Wal-Mart. If you've seen the movie, you know why I'm keeping my eyes peeled for the Irony Police wagon.

Halloween addendum

Managed to unearth another Halloween picture, though this was is a bit more recent than the others in last week's post.

By 1987, I was already in charge of taking my younger brother trick or treating. And if I had to schlep around town anyway, you'd better believe I was going to get some candy, so I dressed up, too.

As you can see, we staged Freddy vs. Jason years before it even hit the screen. I hadn't yet donned my sweater, because it was a bit warm. But I assure you, I was just as terrifying with my *cough* Garfield shirt.

I remember thinking my Freddy Krueger glove was pretty badass. It smelled practically toxic (new, not worn), so I'm sure the fabric was lead-infused, as were the plastic blades.

The few Freddy masks they had in the stores were pretty weak sauce, so I took an old skull mask of my uncle's and flipped it inside out to simulate burned, melty skin. It also had the benefit of allowing me to wear my glasses underneath.

No sense walking around in the dark if I can't see two feet in front of me, right?

Update to yesterday's post

Well, technically, you'll all have to wait till I'm able to afford an Xbox Live Gold membership. I'm supposed to get a free one-month trial, but after setting up my profile, the only options I was given was to pay.

I know they're cheaper on Amazon, but I'll just have to wait, since I dropped all my mad money on the console itself.

But after that, I will be a n00b, ready for some pwnage.
