Axmen Again

June 24, 2009

This years Axmen was even better than last years. I wonder what happened to Stump Branch. I guess they didn’t want to be on the show this year and neither did Gufstason, but it dosen’t look like they’ve gone out of business since they both have sites up and running on the interwebs. So who came back? Phil came back they were pretty good there was a lot of in crew fighting, but I think they did OK and stayed in business another year. Dwayne is one of my favorites on that show. Browning was as great as ever, but they were beatenthis year in load counts by Rygaard Logging. Rygaard was interesting because they were way smaller than Browning kind of like Stump Branch, but they just did beat Browning in the loads. They had a new guy working on their crew who they seemed to push really hard so he ended up quitting. Then they got a new guy who they didn’t seem to push so hard and he ended up staying. Maybe they didn’t push him as much because he was better at logging. Nevertheless they were this years winners. Then there was R&R Conner aviation. It was awesome to see how they attached trees to a helicopter and flew them out of the forest and onto the landing. They had some personnel problems to and had to let a pilot go, but they got another one and ended up doing OK. Then there was S&S Aqua Logging. The owner of  S&S would yell and curse about everything even if you were doing a good job he would yell and curse at you about what a good job you were doing. I don’t think i could work for a guy like that. What’s interesting though is that they would dive for logs in the river called dead heads. The logs would have been sitting in the river for years so they’d be naturally cured. They’d take the logs and make custom furniture out of them and sell them for a heap of money. So all in all it was a better season this year than last year with a lot of different types of logging. I can’t wait to see what they’re going to have next year.

Lost Zombies

June 17, 2009

I heard about Lost Zombies on the Bloody Disgusting podcast a while back. Lost Zombies is an awesome social network that has a focused goal. The goal is to aggrigate various media such as video, audio, writing, and drawing into fake documentary about surviving a Zombie apocalypse. If you like Zombies and want to contribute to a great idea and possibly part of a film maybe you should give Lost Zombies a try.

Dollhouse

June 16, 2009

So yesterday I said I was going to combine talking about this show with Fringe, but I decided it was too good to not have it’s own entry. When I first saw Dollhouse I thought it was a fantastic disaster. I was expecting some sort of like super spy group that tears things up, eventually I got that and much more. You have to put in a little effort for this show unlike all of the other awesome Joss Whedon shows out there. I knew I could trust Whedon though so I kept tuning in and after I watched the first four episodes it started getting real good. You find out that they are storing people’s memories on hard drives and swapping those memories with ones where the people called Dolls can perform specific tasks some of the tasks involving a great deal of action which is what I was expecting. The more the show goes on the more you find out that there’s Dollhouse operations all over the world and The Dollhouse has it’s hooks in almost every aspect of our daily lives. Then it spirals out into some viral stuff about how anyone could be a Doll from the Dollhouse. I could be one you could be one, heck everyone could be one and there could be just one free puppet master! Who knows! That’s what’s great about Dollhouse, it’s one of those how far down the rabbit hole do you have to go type of things. It ended great with a rogue doll on the loose and the FBI agent trying to take down the Dollhouse actually joining The Dollhouse. I was afraid they weren’t going to renew it for next year especially since I found out Fox canned Terminator which I’m still pretty bitter about, but it looks like it’s coming back unlike Firefly which I’m also bitter about. So we’ll see where it goes from here. I’m sure it’s going to be good since Joss Whedon is driving the train.

Fringe

June 15, 2009

I wwas originally going to do a post combining how bad I thought Fringe was with how good I thought Dollhouse was, but i decided to split them up since I have big opinions on both I guess. So the thing about Fringe is I stopped watching it the day The girl FBI agent was interrogating that dude whose life she saved by pulling the worm off of his heart. She gets him to give up the info by telling him she killed his wife. What!?!? That’s totally illogical. I mean if someone told you they just shot your wife in the face would you spill the beans. I wouldn’t I would have tried to tear them apart. They should have done it like in Sons Of Anarchy when they had a similar scene and the dude from Sons smashed the interrogator’s face into the table like fifty times until he got what he wanted. Then I realized that’s my problem with Fringe. If you’re going to have a team show you need to copy a classic that’s all there is to it and the classic that needs to be copied is the A-Team. You have the FBI agent’s which is clearly like Hannibal Smith. She tells people what to do and they do it. She has a plan. Then you have the crazy doctor who’s just like Murdock. Then you have his son who’s like The Faceman. He can smooth talk people and get things done. It’s already established that he can do this too. Then you have the lab assistant who’s totally useless. This is the key to the whole thing. They need to replace this character with a B.A. Baracus. They need muscle on the team that can smash people’s faces and get things done that The Faceman or the other characters can’t. You can’t have the FBI girl be both Hannibal and B.A. it just seems weird. She’s not a face Smasher she’s a planner. There’s some awesome stuff about Fringe like the dude that teleported from Germany to the U.S. and the bald dude that can read minds and is really weird and the doctor is awesome. But I still think they need the muscle otherwise the team seems incomplete to me.

Acquired

June 13, 2009

TNA has some excellent new acquisitions since their last Pay Per View which makes the show even more exciting to watch these days. There’s Amazing Red who I’m not too familiar with. Then there’s Christopher Daniels who never really went away since he was Curry Man and sometimes Suicide. Then there’s The Franchise Shane Douglas. I never saw him in TNA when he was there before, but I remember him as the TV Champ in ECW. Those were good times. Finally, the best acquisition they got in my opinion is Raven. I’m a big fan of Raven in every promotion he’s been in. I especially remember his Heavy Weight championship run in ECW and him teaming up with The Insane Clown Posse and Vampiro in WCW as The Dead Pool. That was fantastic. I also always thought it was cool how he wore Sandman comic book shirts. I think he’s a big comic book fan and even wrote a forward in one of the Sandman collections. Anyway, TNA is going to better than ever this year. I just know it!
