I Don’t Understand FedEx.

Ah, FedEx…you’ve brought me so much delight over the years.  You delivered me my iPod, you delivered me my DVD player…but sometimes, you don’t make any damn sense…

And I’m not just talking about the infamous FedEx Arrow…

Having a package shipped to me…due here on the 11th.  Here’s the tracking information so far…

Feb 05, 2008 09:37:00 PM MEMPHIS TN US ARRIVAL SCAN
Feb 04, 2008 07:07:00 PM CARRIER NOTIFIED TO PICK UP PACKAGE
Feb 04, 2008 09:44:00 AM YORK PA US DEPARTURE SCAN
Feb 04, 2008 09:41:00 AM YORK PA US SHIPMENT PICKED UP FROM SELLER’S FACILITY

I live in Baltimore, Maryland.  York, PA is roughly an hour north of here.  Why exactly did they take it PAST Maryland, to MEMPHIS FUCKING TENNESSEE to deliver it to me?  FedEx baby, you just don’t make no sense.   Al Gore would scissor kick you for this.

HADOUKEN!

I’m not sure if it’s just some misplaced nostalgia, or my current reinterest in gaming (between the online components of the 360 and PS3, plus their amazing HD graphics, and the interesting control schemes of the Wii, I’ve been playing a lot more than usual), but I’m finding myself quite excited for Street Fighter IV.

Now, I know some people that were HUGE fans of SF3, but I really haven’t been into the Capcom fighters since the Alpha/Versus Marvel era.

But SF4? I’m totally there, especially with the reveal of new characters in the game in this weeks Famitsu magazine.  In addition to the obvious Ken and Ryu, plus the SNK-looking/GI Joe-name-having new character “Crimson Viper”, they just announced a whole slue of new characters, plus unleashed a bunch of screen shots.

Who are the new characters?  How’s about..oh…Chun Li, Dhalsim, Blanka, Guile, E. Honda and Zangief? Yeah, that’s right, the original SF2 Eight are in the game! Now, all we need is some Vega action, and I’m totally pumped.

Just An Observation…

Is it just me, or does McCain have tiny lil’ T-Rex arms?

And while I have zero intentions of making this blog political (although I may rant and rave about certain bits on here), I thought I’d stake my claim…

As a registered independent, I cannot vote in the Primary Election.  That being said, my pick? Obama.

Well, Now I CAN’T Forget About Sarah Marshall

vm_sy400_sx600_.jpg

Ever since the premiere of Freaks & Geeks, I’ve been sipping the Judd Apatow Kool Aid.

And this past summer, with the back to back comedy hits of Knocked Up and Superbad, I was in comedy nerd heaven.

The Apatow crew doesn’t appear to be letting up however, as this April brings Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall stars Jason Siegel in the main role (who you may remember as one of the stoner kids from Freaks & Geeks, the obsessive ex from Undeclared, and one of Seth Rogen’s buddies in Knocked Up) as a man who gets dumped by his popular actress girlfriend (the yummy Kristen Bell), who decides to get away and heal by taking an impulsive trip to Hawaii.

Hilarity ensues, of course, as who should be staying at the resort? His ex, along with her new british rocker boyfriend.

A trailer for this hit last fall, and while it looked interesting, it really didn’t seem to be running on the same level of the prior Apatow flicks…However, today, the red-band trailer (read:naughty) hit FunnyOrDie.com, and suffice to say, I’m psyched.

Check it out right here. Forgetting Sarah Marshall hits April 18th. Color me there.

Could it be…MORE Legos?

I know, I know, I don’t intend for this to be an all Lego all the time blog, it’s just been an unusually good time for our favorite plastic building block…It turned 50 last week, and now…it’s being used to create Futurama characters!
