I think SNAKE-EYES (2nd version) is quite possibly the coolest character and figure ever in the history of action figures. He looks freaking cooler than cool with that rad visor, was a badass in Vietnam, is a highly trained mystic martial artist, is a member of the same Ninja Family as Storm Shadow (same tattoo!), is a qualified expert in all NATO and Warsaw Pact small arms, black belt in 12 different fighting systems and is highly skilled in the use of edge weapons. The figure comes with a badass sword, Uzi, backpack and his long-time pet wolf "Timber", plus he has the infamous ever-so-sweet KungFu Grip! He was, and will forever be, my favorite toy. So SNAKE-EYES II, you are the champ of Jimmy's Toy Hall-of-Fame!

updated: oh yeah! He's also a mute, which makes him literally a silent killer! Just one more thing that makes Snake-eyes freaking awesome.


Just found out that the Episode III DVD will contain a snippet of test animation that replaces the horrid Episode I Yoda puppet with the Episode III digital model. A step up atleast.
I'm speculating this will be reinserted into the Phantom Menace DVD when the big 6(+) Saga DVD set comes out in the future.


Awesome. Check out these tasty band-aids!

More funky stuff here.


Caught an early screening of "Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit" the other week (thanks Jason!!!). I think this is the best movie I've seen this year! Hilarious and kickass storytelling! So GO SEE IT when it hits theaters! And if you haven't seen their other Animated Shorts, go rent or buy their DVD: "Wallace & Gromit in 3 Amazing Adventures" Here's the dvd link


"DOUCHEBAG OF THE DAY" goes to Ex-Education Secretary William Bennett. Thursday, on his radio show “Morning in America,” Bennett said, “I do know that it’s true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could, if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down."

And so, Bennett is the "Douchebag of the Day".


The fires aren't near our place, but the skies are gray/red and you can smell the fire in the air....ashes falling a bit north. Freaky. The pic on the left is right by our apartment. Check out those crazy clouds!! The sunset was gorgeous, though. Also, since the fires started, the temperature in Santa Monica went from high of 70degrees (tues) to 90+ degrees (wed-today) ...that's a 20 degree increase!!!

BELOW: Firefighters move back as harsh winds throw a narly wave of fire towards them! Whoa!
