Why so hard to review? I do not think I have seen a movie that is so, fucking, GOOD, that I have no words to really describe how incredible this movie is. I am going to do my best.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences should remove their heads from their asses next year, and do away with the Best Animated Film category. This movie deserves to be in the Best Picture category. Pixar deserves a REAL Oscar. No other studio is putting a movie out that makes you feel emotion towards what you are seeing on screen. No other studio out there currently can produce such heartfelt, hilarious, touching, inventive, intelligent, groundbreaking, and pure entertainment. Sorry Iron Man, but you have slipped to #2 for this year. WALL•E has taken over your spot for best movie of 2008, and I don't see anything, not even The Dark Knight, matching up to it.
I wish I could get more in depth with this review, I wish I could go on and on forever about how fantastic this movie is. How it is a pure MASTERPIECE. But I can't. I am just speechless. All I can say is for you to just go and witness this movie yourself. The animation is at its best, nothing has been better than this. This is the BEST Pixar movie to date. Although I will always hold Toy Story as my geniune favorite Pixar movie.
Go see WALL•E.
Interesting Note: Watch near the begining, when Eve, the white robot shows up and is scanning all the junk. You will catch a glimpse of the Pizza Planet truck from Toy Story. This truck has appeared in every Pixar movie.

We are thinking about coming up with a store. Many a time I will think of a pretty damn funny shirt idea but there is nowhere to buy said shirt. So we figured maybe, just maybe, with the power of cafe press, we would make our own store, with our own shirts. Some related to this website, some just being random strange shirts. Plus it would help generate a little more cash for the site and help us move out of blogger land and into real website world.
Anyways, here is just one of many shirt ideas we have. We would like to hear your thoughts about this shirt and if you would even be interested in purchasing some silly shirts.
P.S. Her brother is still the biggest douche on the planet.
Hulk Hogan is Having Sex with Brooke Hogan!?
Brooke Hogan bio, nudity review, pics and clips at MrSkin.com
How come it is always people you DONT want in sex tapes and never people you DO want? Like where is a damn Lisa Loeb sex tape? Actually I don't want that, it would just make me angry and I would hunt the bastard down that would be in that tape and give him a beat down. An old fashioned beating. One where I hit him more than he hits me and afterwards I take his shoes tie them together and throw them on telephone wires. Now a lesbian Lisa Loeb sex tape? Someone make that happen. K thanks.
My main complaint about games is cutscenes. Now some don't bother me, if the scene is just a couple minutes long, fine by me. But when the damn cutscene drags on and on and on and on top of being too long it is also boring as fuck, then it gets annoying. With Battlefield: Bad Company, there are cutscenes after every mission is completed, but they are never longer than just a couple minutes. They get to the point, tell you what's up and then you move on. As well as the characters in the game actually being funny and entertaining.
I am a big fan of Call Of Duty 4, so I was a little leary about straying from COD4, I felt like I would be cheating on COD by getting this game but actually, I am pretty pleased with Bad Company. There are a few flaws here and there, but it is nothing major. The camera is sometimes a little hard to control but that is very very minor. And when you are in a battle, you will be getting shot at but you have no idea where the hell it is coming from really. Which isn't much of a complaint, it adds realism to the game. You know where the shot came from but you can't immediately see the enemy, unlike COD where you can see the enemy from anywhere pretty much. Also unlike COD is the health. In the past few war games I have played, your health regenerates if you take cover for a few. With this game you have to heal yourself or else you're screwed.
As for the story in this game it is simple and sweet. You are 1 guy in a group of 4 called Bad Company. The rejects of the Army pretty much. You are the guys sent into the warzone before the real Army shows up, since you are expendable. Your rules are simple, destroy everything, kill everyone. And take a little for yourself. Unlike Metal Gear, you are not stuck with long cutscenes in between great gameplay. The game moves right along and it is pretty damn fun. One of the best features of this game is one that I wish was in COD. Sometimes in COD you will be playing an enemy and they will hide behind a wall and just sit there and no matter how many RPGs and grenades you throw, he will be fine behind that wall. Well in Bad Company there is nowhere to hide. If you come up to a house and there's a bad guy inside hiding, you can flip on your grenade launcher and blow the living shit out of the side of the house and walk in guns blazing, catching the enemy off guard. Everything in this game is interactive from what I have seen. You can blow up anything and everything as you see fit.
I have yet to finish the game so I can't really say how long the game itself is, and I have yet to try out the online mode, but I figured I would just throw my thoughts out there in case any of you were wondering about this game. If you are a fan of shoot em ups, and Call Of Duty, this game will please you greatly. If you are a fan of games that have 30 minute cutscenes and are not video games but are, cinematic gaming, then fuck off. Bad Company has no time for your whiney shit. Oh, and for all you Metal Gear fans, Bad Company has a little message for you as well.
And for you Rainbox Six fans....
And for the Gears Of War fans.....
For all the shit talking this game does about other games, it has the goods to back it up. This is by far a better game than Metal Gear, Gears Of War, and Rainbow Six. Ok not better than Gears Of War by far, but I enjoyed this more than Gears.

Well where the CLASSY factor comes in. This comes just 1 year, EXACTLY, TO THE DAY, that Chris Benoit went crazy and killed his family. Chris Benoit, at that time, was a wrestler for the WWE. Now I know it is a year later, but to do a murder attempt storyline on the anniversary of it? Come on.
Also, last nights stunt on Raw, with the stage collapsing and the explosions and madness comes just a week after a crew member from the enemies brand, TNA, was killed. How was this crew person from TNA killed? The stage collapsed. Yep, a real person in the real world was killed in TNA from the stage collapsing, so a week later, WWE does a skit about the stage collapsing. In the words of Mike Boogie, CLASS ACT.
Ugh, I miss the old days.
No, he didn't so shut the hell up. Proof? Feldman himself says, "People can say whatever they want, but it wasn't Michael, he and I have our own issues, but that wasn't one of them. The guy that did this to me was my assistant. I was still a virgin at the time. I hadn't even had sex with a girl. So for me it was just kind of bewildering."
There end of story, stop going crazy about Michael Jackson rapping a frog brother. Plus, The Two Coreys is one of the most pathetically scripted reality shows in the history of TV. Not to reality tv producers, if you are going to script your reality shows, at least get people on the show that can actually ACT.
True, this movie has yet to come out, it comes out this Friday. But I am a huge Disney fan. On top of that I am a huge Pixar fan. So no matter what, this movie would end up in the top 10 anyways. So I threw it on here, plus it was kinda hard since I haven't seen more than 9 movies this year that were good.
8. Run, Fat Boy, Run
Simon Pegg can do no wrong. No matter what. Even he is starred in one of those shitty Spoof Movies that are made every 3 months, I would go see it.
7. Vince Vaughns Wild West Comedy Show
I was pretty surprised by this. It even started off kinda slow and the comedians that went on tour with Vince Vaughn started off kinda lame, but as the movie went on, things got funnier and funnier until this movie found a spot on my DVD shelf at home.
6. Forgetting Sarah Marshall
This is the Judd Apatow crew that I like to see. The Dewey Cox story was not that good, at all. Actually it sucked. But when anyone from Freaks And Geeks makes a movie that they wrote, and Kristen Bell is involved, then I am pleased. True it was not as good as Superbad or Knocked Up, but it was still pretty damn good. And I will make this a must buy for me.
5. Speed Racer
This movie BOMBED at the box office. And to me I think it had to do with Iron Man crushing everything in its path. Had this movie came out later this year in the winter time, it would have done better. It was a good movie. Visually stunning and I can't wait to own it on Blu Ray to check it out again.
4. The Incredible Hulk
We got what we expected. We all hate the first Hulk movie. And after seeing 100 commercials for this one we knew right away that it was going to be far better than the first. And of course Iron Man standing in the way with everyone comparing the two does not help, but I fuckin loved me some Incredible Hulk which to me, has one of the best Good Vs Bad fight scene finales in years.
3. Get Smart
God damn I was so worried about this movie. On one hand I was worried it would be one of those movies where all the funny parts were in the commercials, I was WRONG. And on the other I was worried that The Love Guru would beat it at the box office over the weekend. Wrong again. This movie earned the #1 spot this past weekend and it deserved it.
This was close. Real close. Some days I think Rambo should be #2, other days it should be #1. It is really hard to decide. Movie studios are bringing back all of our childhood heroes. All the icons of action movies, but Stallone seems to be the only one who did it right. Rambo was everything I was hoping for and then some, it made me even more of a Rambo fan than I was before.
1. Iron Man
Of course. No need to explain further.
So there you have it. By years end this list will have changed drastically. We still have plenty more to go, so here is a NEW list!!

Really? Are we really saying movies like Austin Powers Internation Man Of Mystery is a better movie than Braveheart? Are we saying that Napoleon Dynamite is better than Shawshank Redemption? Scream is better then Seven? Speed is better than The Big Lebowski? Men In Black is better than Clerks? Wow, just fucking WOW. There are many, many more examples I could give but I am too lazy to do so right now, just read the list and be confused at what fucking moron wrote this list up. It does however make me want to make my own retarded movie list.
Transformers 2 no longer 2, it will now just be called "Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen." But we will still just call it Transformers 2. And when we go to the theater and ask for tickets, we will just say, Transformers. Subtitles are stupid.
Speaking of subtitles and stupid. Stephen Sommers latest attempt to destroy my childhood, GI Joe, will now be called, GI Joe: Rise Of Cobra. And yea, it will still just be called GI Joe by all of us.
Spiderman 4 will be headed our way May 2011. No word on who if any of the original cast will return, I highly doubt it and personally I am fine with that since Spiderman 3 was such a huge pile of shit they can all go rot in hell. And Sam Raimi needs to stop fucking around and go make Evil Dead 4 already.
The Love Guru bombed. Thank fucking GOD. I was so worried that it would be number one and make shit loads of money. Get Smart was rightfully the #1 movie this weekend. There is hope for the human race after all.
Hostel 3 is headed our way. But this time Eli Roth will not be writing or directing it. I guess that means this Hostel movie will actually be good unlike the last two. ZING!
Terminator 4 teaser trailer will be with The Dark Knight. I am still very UGH about Terminator 4, but it has Christian Bale in it and the man has yet to do me wrong. McG on the other hand, has done nothing but. We will see.
Oh and in case you didn't know, or care, a sequel to Donnie Darko is on the way, called S. Darko. Richard Kelly is not involved, which, to borrow an early joke, probably means this Darko movie will be good. Sorry but Donnie Darko is the most overrated movie of all time.
That is all for now.

Reports are going around that comedian, sorry, LEGENDARY comedian George Carlin has died from heart failure. He has suffered from several heart attacks in his life, but it finally caught up to him and he died at the age of 71. This comes just a day after receiving the news that he would be honored with the Mark Twain Humor Prize For American Humor by the JFK Center For Performing Arts. He will be the 11th recipient of the award following people like Steve Martin and Billy Crystal.
He had just done his last HBO special this past March, I missed it unfortunatley. But I will of course be adding the DVD to my Carlin collection. The man to me made sense out of many things in life, such as, when an airplane almost crashed into something, why do they call it a near miss? It should be called a near hit. On top of being one of the funniest comedians of all time, the guy could act his ass off as well. Even though it was not seen by many, watch his performance in the Kevin Smith movie Jersey Girl. God damnit this sucks.

Well I just bought a house, and received the keys yesterday so I will be away from the computer till Monday since I'll be moving and unpacking and all that shit. And since I am pretty much the only shmuck around here that writes, I guess this site is going on hiatus till Monday unless someone around here actually picks up the ball and writes some shit.
So as for me, I'll see you people Monday. Oh and don't even ask what the fuck is with the creepy demonic Wilfred Brimley picture. I just think it's funny.

The Boston Celtics took a knife, cut the asses off the Lakers, and handed it to them, winning the NBA title tonight by 39 points, EASILY. Now, as for the Laker fans out there, all I have to say really, is well.....
Alright, thats all.
P.S. Kobe can't do it with out Shaq, deal with it.

Details of his death have yet to be announced. This is really crappy news. Especially after the success he just had with Iron Man. Stan had done the practical effects for the movie. And was currently working on the new Terminator movie.
Our legendary movie monsters father has died. And the world is a sad place. I have been saying for years how much CGI has killed the magic in movies, and how greats like Stan Winston are barely heard of anymore. I mean imagine I Am Legend, with instead of CGI monsters running around, we had Stan Winston creatures.
We will have more details once they come in. R.I.P Stan. You will be missed.

My question is, where is the shit that would give this movie an R rating?! This movie isn't scary! It's not even gory! The goriest part is some dude getting his arms ripped off by lions at the zoo, and that shit looks like a cartoon the CG is so bad. I didn't jump once. Hell, I didn't even see anyone else jump. Not one person gasped. No one screamed. We all just sat there, staring at the most boring movie I've ever paid 10 dollars to see.
I'll be honest, I saw Uwe Boll's last flick, In the Name of the King... and it was way better than this. That's saying a lot. M. Night Shyamalan just needs to go ahead and hang it up. Mark Walhberg should be ashamed of how shitty his acting is in this movie. I mean, don't get me wrong, Mark Walhberg isn't that great of an actor to begin with, but it was like he dumbed himself down in this role. Zooey Deschanel is her usual doe-eyed self. I don't see why people are still all goo-goo-ga-ga over her. Sure, she played an eccentric, quirky, indie chick in a couple movies, and it was okay... but after awhile, I'd like to see her try for something different. She basically wears the same face the entire movie, her lips quivering and her eyes watering up. Boring! John Leguizamo is the only person who bothers to try acting in this movie, and he kills himself off in the first half of the movie.
The rest of the cast is filled with weird extras, and that dude who played Horace on Doctor Quinn: Medicine Woman. M. Night for once didn't cast himself in an acting role, not that it would have mattered. He's shit for acting too. However, you can hear his voice, over a cellphone. He's Joey, the guy calling Zooey's character throughout the movie. Look for a weird appearance by Brian O'Halloran, as the driver of the New Jersey bound red Jeep, who never gets one line, before killing himself 4 minutes later.
Overall, I'm just really disappointed in this film. I've always been a really loyal fan of Shyamalan. I own the rest of his films on DVD, even ranking The Village and Unbreakable as two of my favorites. Sixth Sense, Signs, and Lady in the Water were all likeable as well. Signs, for what it's worth, is way scarier than this movie. The suicides, which aren't as intense as the trailers would portray them, are also not in as great a quantity as you would have expected. What could have been an intense, jaw dropping scene, of people shooting themselves in the head, only to have someone else pick up the gun and do the same thing, is instead a boring 4 minute long scene, with the camera at ankle level, never showing a single point of entry. Somehow two teenagers getting blown away at point-blank range even fell short.
The composed music for the film is borderline idiotic. There were tracks after tracks of almost Disney-like orchestrated music, interjected with quick shots of what had to have been intended bursts of tension bearing thematics, that in the end didn't even wake up the sleeping dude in the row in front of me.
There is no twist ending. It does have an ending, that leaves you thinking, but it's no twist. The cause of "The Happening" is contrived, and is never really explained in depth. I won't spoil it, just in case you're some kind of sadist, and insist on taking your friends to see it. The character development is meek, and even though Shyamalan gave Wahlberg and Deschanel character traits to work with, they never quite pull them off. Playing a married couple with issues shouldn't be that hard for two seasoned actors, yet these two seem more like a couple of teenagers trying not to break up for the fifth time. The subplot between them pays off in the final moments of the film, but it still felt pointless.
I'm really dissatisfied with the film as a whole. At 85 minutes it feels rushed, contrived, and just narrowly escapes something I'd expect to catch on Sci-Fi channel on Saturday night. I could go on for hours about how M. Night Shyamalan is bordering on Uwe Boll territory, but like I said before I really didn't mind In the Name of the King all that much. The Happening, on the other hand, just didn't happen for me.
P.S. I did see The Incredible Hulk as well, and it was indeed Incredible.
Saturday, June 14, 2008
During the opening credits we get a rebooted origin story. Takes just over a minute, and we are thrown into Bruce Banners world. He is hiding in Brazil, working in a bottling factory, while studying martial arts and meditation to help keep his anger under control.
Of course, mistakes happen, Thunderbolt Ross finds him, and all hell breaks loose while Bruce is trying to reach the mysterious "Mr. Blue" who thinks he can help Bruce with a cure, or help Bruce control the Hulk better.
And of course, Tim Roth, Emil Blonsky is on Bruces tail as well, getting his ass kicked over and over, which leads him to lending his body to experiments to make him stronger so he can keep trying to finally take out Hulk, which of course leads to him becoming Abomination. The Hulk Vs. Abomination fight is one of the best fight scenes I have seen in a movie in a long time. People have been mainly bitching about Hulk and Abomination being CGI. Give me a break people, if they were actors in make-up you would be bitching about them not being CGI. And how stupid the actors look in the make-up. Plus no one was bitching about Gollum in the Lord Of The Rings movies. In fact people wanted to give the CGI character an Academy Award! The CGI Hulk looks great, acts great and is just fine, so rest easy. All the actors do a great job, Ed Norton is the perfect Bruce Banner. Tim Roth is a great villain.
Also rest easy in knowing, we finally have our Hulk movie. The Hulk movie we have waited years for. Now, you may be wondering, why did I say Iron Man was the Hulks main villain? I think the main problem this movie has is that Iron Man came out first, and so far all I have read is that Hulk is great, but not as great as Iron Man. Which leaves me to wonder if Hulk came out first, then Iron Man, would people say Iron Man was great, but not as great as Hulk? Who knows. As for me. They are equal. Iron Man is fantastic, and Hulk is just as good.
This might be a spoiler, but it is very very minor. If you are wondering, if anything happens regarding the Avengers, which was teased at the end of Iron Man, yes, that story continues. And yes it has to do with the appearance of Tony Stark in the Incredible Hulk. Also during the opening credits / origin story redo, pay close attention to all the papers and letters going around. You might see some familiar names.
As for future Hulk movies, word on the street is they have 2 more lined up. The next films villain is even set up in this movie. I won't say who, but once he is shown, you should know. If not, don't worry about it. If you loved the show but never read the comics, you will love this movie. If you loved the comics and never watched the show, you will love this movie. If you loved them both, you will have geekgasms watching this. Enjoy.

Mark Wahlberg, executive producer of Entourage, was interviewed today about his new movie The Happening that came out today, and was asked about Entourage, his answer might please many fans.
Moviephone: Adrian Grenier said he'd do 'Entourage' 10 more years if he could. You're an exec producer. Any interest?
Mark Wahlberg: We're doing Season 5 right now. We're hoping for maybe three or four more seasons, and then maybe a film or two.
This has pleased me. Four more seasons works for me, and an Entourage movie would be fitting.
So I think, this is actually set in Vietnam. I could be wrong, this is just my hunch. Maybe we will play as Green Berets in the jungles of Nam. That I could get behind. Here are the pics!
Actually the game is called, Call Of Duty: World At War. And is set in the Pacific Theater. Sadly.
Why in the fuck is this news? Why is the images that were released labeled as "tease"? We have known what his fucking mask looks like for over 20 years now. Calm down people, there is NOTHING new about this mask at all. NOTHING. It is Jasons mask. Thats it. Why am I posting it? Probably because this will be the only place where we point that fact out. While everyone else is going banana sandwiches over this.

Anyways, today I got to see Get Smart. Bottom line. This movie is funny. REALLY funny. Which is surprising. The movies trailers looked like it would be a fun movie. But I figured it would be fun, with all the funny parts seen in the commercials. Wrong. Very very wrong. This movie was fuckin FUNNY. And it was no surprise why once the credits started rolling and the first credits we see are. CONSULTANTS. MEL BROOKS. BUCK HENRY. The creators of the original TV Show, and one being the writer and director of some of the funniest movies ever made. One of them being, at least in my opinion THE funniest movie ever made, Blazing Saddles.
I never really watched the show. I caught a couple episodes here and there as a kid on Nick At Night, and I was told a family member was on the show, so I wanted to check it out. (My Dads cousin, played Hymie.) But I never got hardcore into the show. But the movie does the show justice, and then some. I was entertained, laughing, watching, and happy from the start, to the finish. Non stop entertainment. All the characters from the old show are there, even the suit and car from the show. The doors in the long hallway, even the shoe phone appears. All in a great homage to the show. Steve Carrell is very good. Anne Hathaway is great, and hot, as always. Dwayne "Don't Call Me The Rock" Johnson is even great. Everyone is great. So much so that when this movie comes out next week I am going to see it again. Because one thing that depends on my rating of a comedy on how great it is, is if there are times, where I miss jokes, because I am still laughing from the previous joke. This happened a few times.
There is PLENTY of comedy in this movie, and there is even some surprisingly good action scenes in it as well. I HIGHLY recommend next weekend that you go see this movie instead of the crap known as THE LOVE GURU. Fucks sake. And I stand by my word, that this is one of the funniest and entertaining movies that I have seen in YEARS.
Get Smart comes out June 20th.
9/10. No joke, seriously, 9 out of fuckin 10.
Now.... call me crazy but, if I was a scout leader, and it was tornado season, and it was stormy outside, and the sky was lookin a little green, taking a group of kids out where there was no shelter is probably the LAST thing I would think of doing.
Anyways, I dunno why this news belongs here, I think maybe because it was stupid? That they would take kids camping in tornado season? Oh yeah and the boy scouts that lived through the tornado are getting badges. Way to go kids, you survived the worlds biggest threat. Stupidity.
You know what I really loved about the movie Twister? How Helen Hunt and Bill Paxtons main goal in the movie was to launch the tornado warning system device they had to help warn people of the tornado. Even though, they seemed to know exactly where, and when, every tornado that DAY, was going to touch down way ahead of time. Love that movie. THATS WHAT MAKES US! HU MANS BE EEE EEEEEEEIINNNNNNNG
Then Christopher Knight, fractured his elbow. Went to the same doctor, who said he should rest it. And of course! Christopher Knight is no quitter! He must go on and do something else where he doesn't need his arm! Like walk the tight rope, holding a human being on his shoulders, waving to fans, and being just fine.
The person who worked on the set mentioned that there was never any real legit injuries to the stars, and that they were fine.
Expect this show to be canceled in the coming days, because on top of the fake injuries, the show also SUCKED BALLS.
Holy, fucking, SHIT.
The graphics are amazing, everything is wonderful. So why does it suck?
I am a gamer. I play video games all the time. I love video games. One big pet peeve I have about games, that immediately turn me off is cutscenes. I don't mind a small cutscene here and there, but jesus fucking christ on a stick. You will play Metal Gear Solid 4, kick some major ass, then cut scene time. 30 minutes long. 45 minutes long. 60 minutes long. I stopped playing. but from what I hear a couple cut scenes last around 90 minutes! I fucking HATE that shit. It is a big reason why I hated Grand Theft Auto 4. I do not go out and spend 60 god damn dollars, to sit and WATCH a game. I spend money to play the game. For the price of this game I could have just bought around 10 - 12 movies! I hate playing a game, kicking some ass, then a cutscene comes up and next thing I know its 45 minutes later and I'm STILL watching this shit. Now of course, you can skip past the cut scenes, but then you're thrown into shit and you have no idea what's going on or what you're supposed to go do.
If you love games where you sit, watch, and rarely ever even PLAY the VIDEO GAME. Then this game is perfect for you. And of course, no real challenge lies in this game, you are supplied with infinite lives. Infinite continues. Blagh.

Was Game 3 of the 2008 NBA Finals held at the scene of a crime?
Disgraced ex-referee Tim Donaghy alleged as much Tuesday in a filing made by his attorney in U.S. District Court in New York, saying the highly controversial Game 6 of the Lakers-Kings playoff series in 2002 was impacted by the actions of two of the three referees who worked the game.
NBA commissioner David Stern vehemently denied the allegations, saying they are the desperate act of a convicted felon. He also disclosed that the league has already briefed members of the U.S. Congress on certain facets of the Donaghy investigation.
"We welcome scrutiny here. This is something that should be scrutinized," said Stern, who called Donaghy a "singing, cooperating witness" and repeatedly referred to the former referee as a felon as he spoke with reporters for more than eight minutes near the loading dock of the Staples Center as he arrived for Game 3 of the Finals.
The allegations are some of the strongest ever made against the NBA, coming at a time when the officiating of this year's Finals between the Celtics and Lakers has come under heavy scrutiny.
In the letter submitted by Donaghy's attorney, the following "manipulation" is alleged:
"Referees A, F and G were officiating a playoff series between Teams 5 and 6 in May of 2002. It was the sixth game of a seven-game series, and a Team 5 victory that night would have ended the series. However, Tim learned from Referee A that Referees A and F wanted to extend the series to seven games. Tim knew referees A and F to be 'company men,' always acting in the interest of the NBA, and that night, it was in the NBA's interest to add another game to the series. Referees A and F heavily favored Team 6. Personal fouls [resulting in obviously injured players] were ignored even when they occurred in full view of the referees. Conversely, the referees called made-up fouls on Team 5 in order to give additional free throw opportunities for Team 6. Their foul-calling also led to the ejection of two Team 5 players. The referees' favoring of Team 6 led to that team's victory that night, and Team 6 came back from behind to win that series."
Although no teams are specifically named, it is not hard to deduce the game in question. The Lakers-Kings series was the only one that postseason that went seven games, and the officiating in Game 6 was so questionable that consumer advocate and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader called for a formal investigation.
The Lakers attempted 40 free throws to the Kings' 25 in that game, and Los Angeles made 21 of 27 from the line while Sacramento converted 7 of 9 in the fourth quarter alone.
In addition, a foul was called against Mike Bibby of the Kings after he was shoved and elbowed by Kobe Bryant, denying the Kings an opportunity to try for a tying basket. Also in that game, Kings centers Vlade Divac and Scot Pollard fouled out, and Kings coach Rick Adelman was highly critical of the officiating afterward.
"My first thought [upon hearing Donaghy's allegation] was: I knew it," Pollard said Tuesday night. "I'm not going to say there was a conspiracy. I just think something wasn't right. It was unfair. We didn't have a chance to win that game."
The Lakers went on to win the 2002 NBA championship.
The letter apparently comes in response to the NBA's claim that Donaghy pay $1 million in restitution to cover the cost of the league's private investigation. Donaghy's legal team is trying to demonstrate his cooperation with a federal government investigation before he is sentenced on July 14 on felony charges of taking cash payoffs from gamblers and betting on games himself.
The document references other alleged improprieties that Donaghy disclosed to federal law enforcement officials. Among them:
• "Tim gave information on how top executives of the NBA sought to manipulate games using referees to boost ticket sales and television ratings," the letter reads. "He also described how nepotism played a far greater role than qualifications in a number of referee hirings."
• "Tim explained the league officials would tell referees that they should withhold calling technical fouls on certain star players because doing so would hurt ticket sales and television ratings," the letter adds. "As an example, Tim explained how there were times when a referee supervisor would tell referees that NBA Executive X did not want them to call technical fouls on star players or remove them from the game. In January 2000, Referee D went against these instructions and elected a star player in the first quarter of the game. Referee D later was privately reprimanded by the league for that ejection."
• In addition to game-altering allegations, Donaghy's letter claims that many officials carry on "relationships" with team executives, coaches and players that violate their NBA contracts. For example, it said, referees broke NBA rules by hitting up players for autographs, socializing with coaches, and accepting meals and merchandise from teams.
"Tim described one referee's use of a team's practice facility to exercise and another's frequent tennis matches with a team's coach," the letter says.
• The letter also alleges that during a 2005 playoff series, "Team 3 lost the first two games in the series and Team 3's Owner complained to NBA officials. Team 3's Owner alleged that referees were letting a Team 4 player get away with illegal screens. NBA Executive Y told Referee Supervisor Z that the referees for that game were to enforce the screening rules strictly against that Team 4 player. Referee Supervisor Z informed the referees about his instructions. As an alternate referee for that game, Tim also received these instructions."
During the 2005 postseason, Mavs owner Mark Cuban did in fact complain after his team lost to the Houston Rockets in the first two games of their series, and Dallas went on to beat Houston in seven games. Jeff Van Gundy, then the coach of the Rockets, said that an NBA official had told him about the league's plan to closely monitor moving screens by Yao Ming, and Van Gundy was ultimately fined $100,000 for his comments regarding the situation. Van Gundy later backed off his comments.
During halftime of the Lakers-Celtics game on Tuesday, Van Gundy, a commentator for the game, said that while he still thinks Yao was unfairly targeted, he does not lend any credibility to what Donaghy has to say.
Stern said he had not yet read the letter filed on Donaghy's behalf, but that portions of it had been read to him.
"My reaction to Donaghy's lawyer are that clearly as the date of sentencing gets closer, and the things that he's thrown against the wall haven't stuck, he's rehashing a variety of things that have been given to the U.S. Attorney and the FBI, fully investigated, and are baseless," Stern said. "We have been asked to cooperate for the last year by providing people and answering questions, and we've done that. And our understanding is that the investigation is just about wrapped up waiting for the sentencing of Mr. Donaghy, and as he continues desperately to somehow get out of the fact that he is subject to a longer sentence possibly than his co-conspirators, there are this continuing flow of allegations from, don't forget, an admitted felon. So they're baseless."
Also Tuesday, Lakers coach Phil Jackson was asked about the allegations regarding Game 6 of the 2002 series against Sacramento.
"Was that after the fifth game, after we had the game stolen away from us after a bad call out of bounds and gave the ball back to Sacramento and they made a 3-point shot?" he said. "There's a lot of things going on in these games and they're suspicious, but I don't want to throw it back to there."
Jackson also was asked if he agreed with the notion that there were officials that were "NBA company men" who were doing this for the sake of ratings.
"Only us basketball coaches think that," Jackson said. "Nobody else can go to that extreme. They referee what they see in front of them. You know, a lot of things have happened in the course of the Tim Donaghy disposition. I think we have to weigh it as it comes out, and we all think that probably referees should be under a separate entity than the NBA entirely. I mean, that's what we'd like to see probably in the NBA. It would just be separate and apart from it. But I don't think that's going to happen."
Lamell McMorris, head of the NBA referees union, also issued a statement:
"Tim Donaghy has had honesty and credibility issues from the get-go," the statement reads. "He is a convicted felon who has not yet been sentenced for the criminal conduct he has already admitted to. He may be willing to say anything to help his cause and he may believe these most recent allegations will help his agenda. I'm not aware of any improper conduct by any current NBA referee in the playoffs six years ago or any conspiracy by the NBA to affect the outcome of any game then or now. Frankly we're tired of Tim Donaghy's cat and mouse games."
Donaghy's letter said that in the first of several meetings with prosecutors and the FBI in New York in 2007, he named names. He faces up to 33 months in prison.
Donaghy's attorney and federal prosecutors declined to comment to The Associated Press on Tuesday.
But why is it set to suck? The movie is about Chun Li. No Ken. No Ryu. But! It does have Michael Clark Duncan as Balrog. And the awesome Neal McDonough as M. Bison. And, that one weird looking dude from the Black Eyed Peas as Vega. So it won't be all that bad. Right? Oh yeah, and Kristin Kreuk is Chun Li. Yeah the chick from Smallville. I
That is all good and well but seriously. This movie is all about Chun Li and her origins and all that happy horse shit but who the fuck cares? When I was a kid and we would have Street Fighter battles for hours on end on the SNES. No one, NO ONE, played as Chun Li, she was fuckin worthless. Ryu was the fuckin man. Get anyone, and play me as Ryu and I will destroy your face off. And Ken! Ken kicked ass.
So go see this movie. Why? The producers claim that this is just the Chun Li movie. If sequels come, we will get our Ryu movie. Which suits me just fine. Now, how about a reboot of Mortal Kombat?

Well it seems they realized what they were doing, and have gotten back together. They were in the middle of recording their 4th album, (their first album with their new record label Roadrunner, since dropping Island.) And according to Deron Lead Singer Of The Band Miller, they continue work on the new album tomorrow. And look to finish it up by the end of July. No word if a tour will happen soon after, which I would not doubt since they tour more than any other band I have ever seen.
But the real question is, are they really back together? Or are they just back because Roadrunner Records is forcing them to finish this album and once it is completed, will they part ways again? Time will tell.
New CKY album, due this Fall/Winter, ish.
But the news is that Terry Porter is the new head coach for the Phoenix Suns. He signed a 3 year 7 million dollar contract. He is a former head coach for the Milwaukee Bucks and did a pretty great job there. After his job there he then went on to be the assistant coach for the Detroit Pistons. Now the fans of the Phoenix Suns will see more than just 8 players. Mike D'Antoni was famous for only playing 8 players in his rotation while everyone else, especially the rookies, sat almost every game. The only time you would actually see some of the deep bench players was if the Suns were up by 20 or more points with 5 minutes remaining in the game.

To me, gayness comes in many forms. For example, if you get mad at someone you know, and have an argument and your FIRST reaction, is to immediately run and delete them off of your MySpace. That, is an act of gayness.
If you blog, about everything in your personal life, and in every blog you are crying, or whining, about something, thats kinda gay. But if the stuff you are crying and whining about is stupid shit, that no guy would really care about, or no guy would actually have those problems, that makes you gay beyond belief.
Listening to fruity music that only 15 year old girls love, like Good Charlotte, or All American Rejects, thats pretty damn gay. And when you go on to use quotes from songs by said bands to describe your current lifes problems. That is red alert gay.
Doing sing along songs in the car with your Mom is kinda gay. Not fully gay, but when you admit it to the world that you love doing that, then it becomes full on gay.
If you are a guy, and you cry, I mean physically tears down the face cry, over something someone says to you. And cry so much and so hard that you physically vomit from it. That is gay.
When you drink foofoo drinks, nonstop, and nothing else. That is pretty gay. 1 foofoo drink every now and then is fine, but if you just LOVE them, and drink nothing else but them, that's pretty damn gay.
When you take what people, especially strangers, off of the internet say to you way too seriously and throw fits and get angry about it, to the point that you scream I QUIT IM NEVER WRITING AGAIN! And then the very next day, write something, thats not just childish, thats mega gay.
If you do Jagerbombs. That isn't gay. If you BRAG about doing Jagerbombs. Then you are gay.
If you are a guy, and you have tons and tons of friends who are all girls. That you just love to hang out with and do silly things, and not a damn single one of them wants anything to do with you dating/sex related. And has no friends that they would know of that would be interested in that either. That makes you gay. Because then they see you as one of them, and they like the dick.
You dressed up like a care bear for Halloween as a child. That's gay.
When you play in E-Feds and other role playing games, thats ok, if you're a kid. But if you are a grown ass man and STILL taking that shit seriously. Gay. Superman Gay.
If you go and take all of the above listed and throw it into a blender, what type of person would emerge from this concoction? My theory, a seriously gay dude. But what about you faithful readers? What do you think makes someone gay that I have not mentioned above?
Now if you will excuse me, I have to wash my hair.

Filming of season 4 of the show is currently underway so it will be interesting to see if Mikes death is covered, which I'm sure it will. They covered Matt Roloffs drunk driving trial which was cool to watch. Here is the newsletter sent out by Matt Roloff himself.
Yesterday afternoon, as I finished up the summer newsletter and set it to be sent out this morning, I had no idea I would be announcing such tragic news several hours later. It is with the deepest sadness and devastation that we must inform our friends and fans of the passing of our extended family member, Mike Detjen. For the past eight years Mike has been a business partner, brother, coach, friend, and confidant. He was truly like an uncle to our kids. It was with complete and sudden surprise last evening when Mike was rushed to the hospital from his soccer club board meeting. At the time, it was believed he was having a heart attack. Amy and all our kids rushed to the hospital to be by his side. Coherent and alert, Mike was rushed into emergency surgery for a torn aorta. An aortic dissection is very serious, but the prognosis was that they would be able to repair the rupture in the 5+ hour operation. Unfortunately, Mike did not make it through the procedure. Mike passed with many loved ones and friends that cared deeply for him. We especially extend our condolences to Mike's family. Our kids are all devastated and beside themselves with grief. We will miss Mike dearly as a friend and loved one. We celebrate Mike's life as one of compassion and service to those he cared about. He was the driving force behind the area soccer club. He dedicated countless hours and his personal resources to his love of soccer and the local kids that enjoyed it. Mike not only taught my kids to play but how to love the game and practice good sportsmanship as well. Mike was a deeply faithful man, and though we mourn his loss, we take solace in the knowledge that he has gone to his heavenly home. Condolences may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be gathering the responses to give to Mike's sons, Tim and Jason Detjen. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the organization Mike was the most passionate about, the Hillsboro Soccer Club. Hillsboro Soccer Club 2074 NW Alocleck Dr., Suite 415 Hillsboro, OR 97124 We are in the process of setting up a donation fund through PayPal. You should be able to give online through our website in the next couple of days. Thank you for sharing our grief and sorrow in this time of earthly heartache.
We haven't been covering much on the movie, since Michael Bay stated that they would purposely be releasing false information to throw everyone off. So fuck for all I know it wont be called Revenge of the Fallen. Who knows. Who cares, give me Dino-Bots!!!!!!!
Filming began just a couple days ago on the movie, I would post some set pictures but, they're not really much to look at. No shots of anything but explosions which we've all seen before.
And you know why? Because he's the boyfriend of Megan Fox, and Megan Fox just can't have enough sex it seems. Recently she was interviewed, and She said: "I really enjoy having sex, and that's offensive to some people. Women are the quickest to call other women sluts, which I think is sad. I haven't met a lot of men who have said, 'You like having sex? What a dirty whore you are.' "
Megan, who is only 21, has also confessed it doesn't take much to get her in the mood for sex, because her raging hormones leave her in a permanent state of arousal. She's like a bitch in heat, for fucksakes.
She added: "I'm young and have a lot of hormones - I'm always in the mood! But I like sex with one person when I'm in a relationship. Sex with random people who I've met at clubs is not really my thing. I'd rather stay home and have sex all day, than even leave the house."Are you fucking kidding me?! With Brian Austin Green?! I mean don't get me wrong, Brian Austin Green is obviously better looking that anyone writing for this website, but you're Megan Fox, you can do better than the guy that sucked face with Tori Spelling for 7 years.
Megan Fox loves to fuck, and she loves to fuck Brian Austin Green.
That sentence is a juxtapose of emotions.
I guess we can see why Brian Austin Green won't sign on to the 90210 remake show. He wants to be home as much as possible, and I can't say that I blame him.

So what did John and Nick do before these tragic events? Nick was on his Dad's TV show. Being worthless, doing nothing important, living with Mommy and Daddy serving no purpose in life but to live off his Dads money. Brooke, his sister, at least was doing something for herself by attempting a singing career. What about John? Oh, he just served in 2 tours of duty in Iraq fighting for his country as a marine. Then comes home after 4 years to get in the car with Douche Hogan and his life is ruined forever. Anyways, below are the full recordings of the phone calls from jail of Nick crying like a little girl about being afraid of the dark, and not being out of his cell. Oh and saying Mommy. I never thought the day would come, where someone more worthless, pathetic, and HATED than Paris Hilton would come along. Nick Hogan makes Paris Hilton look awesome and cool and like someone I would wanna hang out with all the time. She served time in jail and didn't act like a fuckin whiny bitch about it.

Meanwhile, downstairs. 2 Men were rooting through all of Noahs things, when one of them saw Noah coming down the stairs. Holding a BED POST that he had unscrewed off of his bed. One burglar got away. While the other burglar, was beaten, by Noah, with a bed post.
So burglars. If you are gonna attempt to break into a home, make sure it's not owned by a 5'11" 218lb NFL Running Back. Cause you're gonna end up getting your ass kicked. The guy that ran off was later caught, and the injured burglar is in the hospital from his bedpost wounds. Both still remain idiotic.
Well he canceled, he has canceled all appearances he has on his slate to immediately begin pre-production on, INGLORIOUS BASTARDS. It is his World War II epic that he has been talking about and rumored to make for years and years, even before Kill Bill came along.
If he is beginning work this soon, I would expect this movie to be out no later than Winter 2009. Of course this is just me making a wild guess on the release date. But he is for sure FINALLY making Inglorious Bastards!
Well I went home, and HAD to find more on this band. Watch, and listen. Trust me, just wait for the mood in the song to change, and just when you think shit doesn't get any weirder than this, the dixie horn from Dukes Of Hazzard goes off randomly. Yeah, I have a new favorite band. And yes, that is a girl singing.
Here is their MySpace, with the headline... "Metal Just Got Gay." And they are currently on tour.
Hillary rambled on that she will continue to speak out on health care and other random shit. She also is going to be bugging Obama about him taking her with him and Hillary being Vice President. Blagh. I don't really give a flying crap about politics. I just figured this would be nice for all Obama fans to see.
So it looks like John McCain is set to become the next president. There are far too many racist and hillbilly morons in the world to nominate Obama. I don't really give a crap who becomes the president because either one of them is better than what we got now. If Pauly Shore was running, fine, I'll take the weasel as president. As long as George Bush is out of the White House, cool.
In The Incredible Hulk, due out in a couple weeks. Hulk will talk in the movie, which is pretty cool cause now maybe we will hear HULK SMASH! But, the best part, Lou Ferrigno is the voice of Hulk! This brings me great glee.
We'll new versions of the cartoon have come and gone, Recently in 2002 a new cartoon came out that I actually just watched the other day when a friend of mine bought the DVD. And it was pretty damn awesome. Well Joel Silver is lined up to produce a NEW Masters Of The Universe movie, and Justin Marks has finished his first draft of the script, and latinoreview.com has reviewed it. I won't post the whole review, I will just say the things that matter. And Latino Reviews grade for the new Masters Of The Universe script? A+! It is being said that it is Lord Of The Rings, meets The Matrix, meets Batman Begins. Onward with the important stuff....
The movie will be called Grayskull: The Masters Of The Universe.
Fuck this Earth shit like the first movie. This movie takes place on Eternia!
It's PG-13 but could possibly have an R rated DVD release. No way they'll release this in theaters as an R.
There is no camp, or cheesiness.
It is a very serious script, there is not a single bit of comedy anywhere.
It starts off as an origin story. We get He-Man/Prince Adams origin, Skeletors origin, and the Power Swords origin.
It is being set up as a trilogy.
Trap Jaw, Evil-Lyn, TriClops and Panthor are all there.
Man At Arms, Mekanek, Teela, Zodak, and Battlcat/Kringer are there as well.
And how about some Rotons, Doomseekers and Shadow Beasts for everyone to ride around on?
From the sounds of things, this is the He-Man movie we have all been waiting for. The only problem is, since Joel Silvers last movie, Speed Racer, straight up fuckin BOMBED. Warner Bros might be a little reluctant on this. But we will see.
