Allen = Awesome!

The Photoshop skillz of my friend Allen Pierson are just begging for a spot in this blog: so here they are. Now, this guy is epic 1337 when it comes to photography --I urge you to check out his handiwork -
But what's particularly thrilling for me is the fact that he's digitally reworked my face two different times, allowing me to live out my crazed fantasies of being some kind of anime-style warrior chick. So without further ado, feast your eyes on the computer-generated masterpiece that is MegN (as seen by Allen Pierson)...

Kickass Forest Avenger MegN

...and Cyborg/Mecha Fighter MegN

Harold & Kumar Do It On The Run

Ok, so I just saw the much-anticipated Harold & Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo Bay... and it was even better than I'd expected. If you haven't seen the original, then run --don't walk-- to your nearest Blockbuster and witness the awesome wonders of the stoner's quest for White Castle. After that, get your ass to the theater and prepare for a silly, crazy, fast-paced ride through the sequence of events that follow! I refuse to spoil anything for you, but I couldn't resist posting this promo poster for the movie... (of course NPH is back!)

'Roldy & Kumar: freakin' out

My Other Home Is The Ren Faire

Seriously now, here where I live, there are many attractions you can blow a month's income on in one weekend: amusement parks, county fairs, shopping complexes the size of small countries; you name it, we got it. But I defy you to find anything else that allows you to walk 500 years into the past -- and have a damn good rowdy time doin' it. This magical realm is known as the Renaissance Faire, and call me a nerd if you want (hey, if Al Yankovic can go there, so can you), but jousting, archery, and steak on a stick are all some pretty convincing reasons not to spend a day and a half navigating a maze of traffic through L.A. just for some stupid postcards of the Hollywood sign.
And then there's the Bold & Stupid Men. It's pretty much worth heading to the Faire just to see these guys. Not only have tights and codpieces never been worn so hilariously, but their daring swordplay ("Spanish Death with chicken?") and rogue-ish tomfoolery will have you in stitches.

The Bold and Stupid Men (Bolt Upright, left; & Gianni Vespa, right), boldy going where no stupid man has gone before
If you want to explore this wonder for yourself, click the link on that little side bar there to your left. As for me, I will be embarking on my yearly trek to the Faire in just a few weeks. Expect pictures... And many tales of fun and frolic upon my return.

To be continued...

A Stoner's Paradise

In honor of today's significance in stoner lore (4-20), I am posting a link to the official trailer for Seth Rogen's upcoming pothead action movie, Pineapple Express. (For the record, I am not a partaker of the ganj; I simply have a deep appreciation for stoner comedy.) As anyone who knows me knows, Mr. Rogen is firmly at the top of my Do List (as in, I'd do that)... for anyone who doesn't know me, watch this trailer to see why.

Behold, the king of half-baked comedy himself
On a related note, another movie I'm saving my pennies for is of course, Harold and Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo Bay (coming out in 5 days, OMG!!1). Please, for the love of White Castle, rally with me and SEE this movie! Together, we can support 2 stoners in their quest for hash (and burgers).

If It Were Easy As Fishin', You Could Be A Musician...

I am McLovin... lovin' BTO, that is. (That's Bachman Turner Overdrive, for those unfamiliar with their awesomeness.) These guys are the ultimate grizzled '70's trucker/rockers, and I want to have their musical lovechild. Who else could pair classic lines like 'it's the work that we avoid / and we're all self-employed' with driving guitar and a kicka$$ groove? No one else, I tell you. And don't even get me started on the growling, husky vocals of bassist/lead singer Fred Turner! Randy could sing too, but BTO just couldn't 'B' without the Turner-man.

So I found this 1975 video clip of the band's timeless big rig anthem, "Roll on Down the Highway". Watch it, and see how ass is kicked. Follow the link, good buddy:

BTO - back in the good ol' days

And now, for your further viewing pleasure... Here's a hi-freaking-larious vid of the same BTO song, but with a bunch of seriously goofy-cute Asian boys lipsync-ing along. It's some good, clean, rollicking fun that you can't help but tap your feet to (while laughing your stomach straight into seizures) :D
