Canzo Empyrean… Need I Say More?

March 30, 2008 16 comments

So I’ve noticed that I’ve been getting a lot of hits on my blog from over the Canzo Empyrean trailer, a video that I found while looking for some footage from the upcoming live action G.I. Joe movie. I found the preview by accident but let me tell you, I want to see this movie so bad I’m practically foaming at the mouth!

Anyway, I thought I’d take some time and share with everyone else, some of the stuff I’ve found since stumbling across it, but first off for those of you who haven’t seen it yet, here’s the original trailer that started the whole thing:

Awesome! That’s all I can say… Awesome.

So here are some more video clips that I’ve been lucky enough to come across since I initially found the preview

Harry, a reader in Monrovia Liberia who heads up a local fan club for the movie, was nice enough to send me this link of Chancellor (the mastermind behind it all) promoting what I’m assuming to be the movie premier over there:

Here are a couple of the more innovative marketing adds that I’ve came across too:

This is the best one so far but for some reason he has disabled the Embed option on the video so you’ll have to click on the link, but trust me; it’s worth it!

“Big Up” Harry for all the info and links you provided!

Final thoughts? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: “I.HAVE.TO.SEE.THIS.MOVIE!

And Some Heroes Came Along…

OK, so I just started watching Heroes for the first time at the recommendation of a friend… Awsum!

Admittedly, I didn’t give this show a fair shake at first. I don’t really have a whole lot of time for watching TV, so I have to pick and choose what shows I watch/DVR. I usually record one show a night (excluding various news shows) to watch and that’s enough to give me my TV fix for the night.

Just so happens that Heroes and Studio 60 both debuted on the same night and I chose the latter of the two for my after work entertainment. Then with Heroes being one of the major factors in Studio 60 getting canceled, like a spoiled child, I refused to watch it strictly out of spite… I still feel like Studio 60 had some of the best writing on television at the time and in the midst of all this reality television; if it had been given a different time slot it would have done very well.

So long story short: given the lack of new episodes of anything to watch (as a result of the recent writers strike), I’ve had some time to check out a few programs I wouldn’t have otherwise watched. I may have… um… lets say… acquired the first season of Heroes… *cough* torrents *cough* *cough*… I’m just kidding, I would never advocate the illegal downloading of copywrited materials from the internet, I bought them from Wal*Mart. :\ *rolls eyes*

Honest!

Regardless… come next season they’ve got a new viewer, I’ve just got to get caught up by then. It’s a good thing my iPod holds 80 gigs worth of shit.

P.S.

Just for the record: I did buy the first season, it just may not have been before I “previewed” it by other means, and it was money well spent! 🙂

OK, yea I’m still alive. *lol* So where have I been you may ask. Well that’s not such a long story, and I aim to tell ya… those fuckin iPods are evil! I’ve spent the better part of a month building my iToons library, obsessively ripping every DVD I own, editing the ID3 tags for damn near every goddamned Mp3 I have, and manually getting the album art for every fuckin movie and song in my library (before I realized that iToons will do that for you automatically if you register an account).

I’ve neglected almost everything in my personal life, my office is a shambles, I haven’t so much as dusted my toy collection, and other than checking the stats to my blog every once and a while, I haven’t done anything on the computer in weeks. Seriously: Why the fuck do I need to have every episode of Babylon 5 in Mp4 format? Do I really need to carry around all seven seasons of Deep Space 9 in my pocket? And I just finished watching every episode of Entourage, in order, less than a month ago!

*Fuckin OCD*

Geeezus, if you have OCD or even OCD-like tendencies, seriously stay the fuck away from these things they’ll destroy your life. I’ve turned into some sleep deprived audio/video-phile fruit cup. I stay up all night, until I can’t keep my eyes open anymore, ripping movies, I haven’t shut my laptop off since x-mas, and whenever I’m away from it; I have my iPod on… I sleep with the damn thing on for fucks sake!

So what snapped my outta my self imposed iPod isolation? Go-Bots! That’s right, those little generic half-assed transformer wannabe toys from the 80s. While waiting for a movie to download (legally, of coarse), I found an auction on eBay for the Go-Bots Power-Suit Combiner: Grungy with the box, Styrofoam, and enough bots to fill the suits for what I thought was a good price, so I did the “Buy It Now” and now I’m eagerly awaiting a package in the mail (LOL). But that got me thinking about some of the Go-Bots I had as a kid, and started looking for some of them too.

That brings me to my current dilemma. Much like Transformers, Go-Bots were originally sold under another name in Asia, Machine Robo, before they were re-branded and brought over to the States. I found the Japanese version of one of my favorite Go-Bots, Mint In the Box (MIB), from a toy store in Asia for a decent price and now I’m trying to figure out how to finagle enough money to snag him up before somebody else does. I don’t have too many bots that I want to part with, but I’ve been playing with the idea of selling my G.I. Joe collection to get enough money to buy him. I’ve got the entire 25th Anniversary line (Mint On the Card) all the way up to wave 5, including all of the variants except Snake Eyes with the black Timber, that should net me enough to pay for it plus some.

I really haven’t had much of an interest in them lately, but I don’t know if it’s because I haven’t been able to find them for a while or if it’s because I’ve genuinely lost interest in them. I originally wanted to get the complete line and keep them all MISB/MOSC, but I’ve been looking at all of the planned releases for the line, and those little buggers are gonna break me. It was fine when I thought they were just going to be a filler line until the next line was ready for production, but they’re starting to look like they may be Hasbro’s main line for a while. I’ve got the entire line pre-ordered through BBTS all the way up to wave 7, along with all the comic book 2 packs, and I can see these getting really expensive in the future.

On the other hand, I’ve got a really good start on the line and if I sell what I’ve already got, I may never be able to afford to get them back.

It’s a stupid thing to have to worry about, especially with the economy the way it is and all, but… DAMN IT, I REALLY WANT THAT BOT!

TV & Movie Interests

OK, like most Americans when I heard Sylvester Stallone was making a new Rocky movie; I groaned. To my surprise and to the rest of the world too, it was actually a pretty good movie. In my opinion, the best Rocky movie in the series.

So with the news of a new Rambo movie, I am genuinely intrigued. I did a little digging, found the trailer, and was pleasantly surprised. But one thing is for sure… “This ain’t your daddy’s Rambo!”

I think he killed more people in the preview than he did in the first three films combined. It looks a little gory, but it’s defiantly a “must see” movie for me… I don’t want to miss this on the big screen like I did with Rocky. There’s something to be said about seeing a movie in the theater as opposed to waiting for the DVD, no matter how big your TV or good your surround sound system. Anyways check it out!

John Rambo

OK, here’s some other “Must Sees” for me too, both at the Box Office and on TV:

AVP2

The Mist

And to hold me over while I wait…

Entourage

Ari at his best, lol

Real Time with Bill Maher

Best clip ever!

And what would a post full of YouTube links be without an episode of Red Dwarf… Obscure British Space Comedies FTW! For anyone who’s never seen Red Dwarf, here’s all of episode one broken up into three parts for your enjoyment. I love British sense of timing and humor.
