I think I'm retired, but not exactly sure. Peace. G.B.

I can't speak for all the fans, but I think most would agree that whatever this movie turns out to be,, you have the spirit, drive, vision, and determination of a young Orson Wells.
We're all very proud of you for taking this leap, and through you, and your efforts, all of us at home get to live vicariously, cheering you on.
Even though there is obviously obstacles you are fighting right now, this movie is YOUR vision, YOUR passion,,, YOUR movie.
For us fans, this is YOUR Kane.

Some people are griping about Mike not being in the movie, and I agree, but it's already been decided, and Mike has admitted he'd rather hold the Fort down, and not be in the movie. Hats' off to Mike.
However, if you're looking for a best friend for the nerd, who won't charge $25,000.00 a day?,,, Look no further than this guy.
He would be perfect!

James! This guy lives in L.A.,, and you really should cast him in your movie!
He is hilarious!
@Frameskipper It's easy,, try "V-2",, like the German rocket, and just add 6!

@Syrin Skeeball rocks!! I've never smoked crack, but Skeeball must be damn close. I can't stop playing it!! Plus, after putting about $90.00 in one of those machines, I can collect the million tickets, go to the counter, and chose between the ink pen that doesn't work, or the faux Pubic Zuccini ring!!
I'm sure James, and all those other guys will have some really cool stuff set up, way beyond the realms of Skeeball.
Wait!! They have the original Donkey Kong too? Too bad I'm on the East Coast. Alas.......

@GeofBOMB@c64kicksass@OdieMikes Look here, Mr. Fuck Stick, aka GeofBOMB. For your information, back in 1998, when I found the Atari 7800,, yes, at the dump, with 26 games, in perfectly good condition,, it was a blessing. I'm a single Dad.
My son was dying, and I was up to my ass in medical bills. That free system, with loads of free games lightened up the mood a little bit. It brought some fun into our house. We couldn't afford a Play Station then.
He died in 1999.
Now we have a brand new ps3, XBOX 360, and a Wii. I make $75,000.00 a year now.
God has blessed us. I hope you never have to go through,, what we have.
Think about this, before you run your mouth again.

I saw these movies back in the 70s', and they creeped me out to no end.

Yeah, and then when the T-1000 finds D.J. at Rosannes house, he gets his ass handed to him, because D.J. is actually the new T-5000, sent back in time to terminate the vinyl record hating T-1000.

@dino666@OdieMikes Nope. Not even one copy of that turd.
@Mikefate@meeeeeeeeee@slipkorn17 I think you both have valid points here, but I truly feel that James was embarrassed taking even one Nickel from anyone to do this film. The people who donated wanted to help James make this movie, and they're all dying to see the end result. That money will go really quick too, and more than likely, the movie will go over budget. Also, I would bet that James isn't having a load of fun out there. He's more than likely stressed to the limit, and working 16 hour days.
That's just my 2 cents.

I still wish Mike would consider reviewing "The Crippled Masters". It's the sickest Hong Kong Kung Fu flick,,, ever.
@Big McLargehuge@HenryFinnegan I loved Phantasm. The Original. Now that would be a good review.
@Inspire Word to the wise,, do not, I repeat,, Do Not order a "Slammer" at any bar in Tijuana.

@Anthony33 I hope it's not a "Nut Log",, from Stuckeys.
@MarcWarner I have to agree. I must be missing something? I tried like crazy to get into the Zelda games, Final Fantasy, etc.. and still want to, but I just lost interest, and put them down. I'd much rather play something like Resident Evil 4.
It's like, I love Oysters, but they're not for everyone.
I still wanna see what I'm missing in these games. They just kinda bore me. There must be something to it. ?
p.s. First person shooters can be fun, but they kinda piss me off too.

@RyanSanders@Devil_Rising Cradle?,, I gotta barf now.
@Devil_Rising In the 60's,, yes, I'm that old,, all of my friends loved the Original Star Trek, and never could figure out why it got canceled?!
All my dumb friends called it Star Track though. Just like they called my dads Mustang Mach 1, a Mark 1.
Geez, I feel like Huckleberry Finn here....
Anyway, the Original was way better than any of the spin-offs.
It seems like in the newer ones, everything is so dang p.c. , and nobody wants to offend anyone? Klingons are friends?!! Whaaa???
Every picture of me from the 60's, I'm sporting a black eye. It was the decade of,, "It's o.k. for everybody to beat the hell out of anybody you happen to feel like beating the hell out of, at any given moment." It was o.k., and Star Trek was one of the few shows that reflected that mind-set. That decade was tough, but it made me tougher.
Kirk, and Spock, went to Planets, and kicked everybodys' asses. With fist fights. That's how things were done then.
I miss those times. (I never could figure out why they always sent the most important guys from the ship on dangerous missions? I think the "T" in Kirk stands for Testosterone.)
Picard would try to "work things out peaceably". We all know were that gets ya. It's not a bad show? I do like the concept of the Borg. Still, it's lame.
... and speaking of P.C.,,, Why did the Klingons in the original show, all look like Mexicans?
@MichaelSchatz My bad.
Tranya. "I hope you relish it, as much as I".
That is Ron Howards' little brother. He was also "Leon" in the Andy Griffith show.
Spock was the fricking Science Officer!!!
Kirk was here.
So was The Gorn.
"Alien Beaver Tomato Fight" Another great band name! Thanks James.

First of all, Good job Mike, on keeping the site interesting, and fresh!
It seems like every couple of days, or so, you're posting something new, and entertaining, so touche' !!
... Second of all, this crazy toy dog has given me a great idea. Here in the South, we love "Hush Puppys". You know, those fried cornbread thingys, that are more addicting than crack.
... If you could just shove Hush Puppy mix into this sick invention, and have a Deep Fryer, on the Southern, or "Business" end of the doggy?
How frickin' cool would that be?
What would you call them though? I'm open for suggestions.....
That was funny as crap Mike!! Good job!!
What ever happened to Helen Slater anyway?

@RosinaLucyCalypso@senna4ever@Ultimateownage It's a people thing. It's a normal thing. The 50's looked awesome from my young perspective, as I was growing up in the 70's. Now that's nostalgic. The 80's? Crap, I was raising kids then. Yes, I have a daughter that is James' age. I must be the oldest one here? It's o.k. I love this site!

Rosina!! Here's a sample of The 3 Stooges!!
@RosinaLucyCalypso@Ultimateownage If you don't mind?,, Can I please ask what country you are from Rosina?
No 3 Stooges in your country? Is there no GOD?
WOW,, O.K. The 3 Stooges were 3 Goofball brothers, who did short films in the 1940s', here in America. ,,, And they were funny,, as cunt!!,, (can I say that now? ... has SOPA censored me yet?)
Wait,, Lemme back up here. The 3 brothers were Shemp, Moe, and Curly Howard. Also, there was Larry Fine. (My favorite Stooge!!)
I know, that makes 4,, but damn.
Not to be confusing, here???
Larry, and Moe, were always there, but Shemp, and Curly kinda traded off from time to time. Shemp was the first,, he didn't want to do the gig, then Curly came in, and let Shemp off the hook,, Curly got sick, and died, then Shemp came back.,,,, then died. Are you confused yet?
Moe, and Larry pushed on later with some Curly wannabes. (Joe Dorrito, Joe Besser, etc...)
Crap? I dunno?,, Look it up on youtube, and if you're a woman that likes this stuff?,, then you're o.k. by me!!!
Finding an American woman who's o,k, with the word "CUNT" ???
........ Is like finding a Woman who laughs at the "3 Stooges"?!!
That word is like Kryptonite to most women in the Western Hemisphere.
I need to move over seas.
Not to be off topic here, but is there a projected release date for the movie?
.... and Thank you Mrs. Nerd, for responding to all the questions.
I hope you, and James have fun in Ca!
@ExhaledHippo Whooo!! There's a Resident Evil 6 Trailer there!
We have one of each. My family that is.
A Wii, an Xbox 360, and a PS3. They are all great, but honestly, I prefer the PS3. I don't like the joysticks on the PS3 though. They're too floppy, and hard to control. The ones on the Xbox feel a lot better to me. Your thumb fits in them, they don't seem as high, and they're a bit stiffer. Do I have any options as a PS3 owner, as far as after market controllers that might suit me better?

I found an Atari 7800 at the dump, mint condition, in a grocery bag, plus 26 games, back in 1996. Took it home,, plugged it in,, and it worked like a charm!
There was some good games in there too.
Asteroids, Mario, Donkey Kong, etc..
My son, who was 4 at the time was thrilled.
