Riff Trax Live 2 and Turkey week

Its Turkey Week, so what better way to celebrate than to make fun of turkeys via MST3k. MST3k is mystery science theater 3000. It was a show that made fun of bad movies. This week I'll be listing my top 10 favorite episodes of the show.

There will also be a riff trax live show on December 16th and 17th. I'm planning on attending the 17th show at Tinseltown if anyone wants to tag along.

al has the flu but which flu is it?

Well the doctor has ordered me to stay home at least until Thursday while they determine if I have swine flu or flu flu. I would take this time to tackle the huge blog backlog but I feel like poodoo. Maybe tomorrow.

So instead I've been finishing up tv series online. I just wrapped up Spectacular Spiderman (so good) and Wolverine and the X-Men. Next up is One Piece. Any other shows I should get caught up on while I have the time?

One Flu over the Cuckoo's Nest

The dreaded flu bug has hit. I've been sick since last Friday. Not sure if its the piggy flu or not.

One Piece is but a dream

Everyone has dreams. Some of us chase them and some of us put them off for another day that never comes. And still fewer actually achieve their dreams.

Luffy's crew are all chasing their own dreams. And they won't stop until they achieve them.

Luffy wants to be King of the Pirates. In fact he'll tell you this in practically every episode. Zoro wants to be the greatest swordsman. Nami wants... I'll let you find out the other dreams.

The crew won't let anything get in their way but the dreams don't come without a price.

But maybe just maybe they'll find what they are looking for at the end of their voyage

and we'll be there rooting them on. Well I don't know about you but I'll be there.

Tomorrow we talk about Luffy's Nakama. What's a Nakama? Tune in tomorrow.

The tragedy of One Piece

I'm not going to lie to you. One Piece can be downright silly. From snail phones to robots wearing speedos, the world of One Piece can be just plain nutty. But don't let that fool you. Like any good show, One Piece can have you laughing one moment and crying the next.

Every crew member on One Piece has a tragic past that affects their current motivations. Luffy's recklessness hurt someone he admired. Zoro made a promise that he can never fulfill. Usopp learned to lie to protect someone he loved. Sanji learned about true sacrifice. And Nami learned about doing what you hate to protect the ones you love.

I know I'm being vague on the details but I don't want to ruin it. Nami's backstory in particular is incredibly powerful.

Each one of these moments molded and shaped the crew into the people they are today. And out of these tragedies, the crew formed their life goals.

Which is what tomorrow is about, dreams.

An Overview of One Piece

Since I've started this blog, I've heaped tons of praise on a japanese manga/anime called One Piece. Unfortunately, among my friends it seems like I'm the only one who watches it. I know many of you all saw the horribly edited Saturday morning version. I'm not talking about that version... I'm talking about the uncut version.

One Piece is better than Naruto. Its better than Dragon Ball Z. Its better that Full Metal Alchemist. Well... maybe not Full Metal Alchemist... but its pretty close.

All of this week I'm going to highlight why this show is so awesome. And hopefully by the end of the week you'll give it a chance.

One Piece tells the story of Gold Rogers, the king of the pirates. At his execution he told the world that he left all of this treasure in One Piece. So a new age of pirates was born.

One of those pirates is Monkey D. Luffy.

Luffy proclaims to anyone who will listen that he is going to be King of the pirates. Unfortunately he has no ship and more importantly no crew. So begins his quest.

This week I will only talk about the initial crew members of the Strawhat Pirates. There are many more crew members but I don't want to ruin the surprises along the way.

Luffy is the captain of the crew. He's goofy and reckless but can become serious at the drop of a hat. He also has a huge appetite. Luffy ate the gum gum fruit so he can stretch his body.

Zoro is the swordsman of the crew. He's a former bounty hunter and deadly serious. He has no sense of direction and usually sleeps off his wounds. Zoro uses a three sword style.

Nami is the ship's navigator. She's a thief and only cares about treasure. She can detect changes in the weather before they happen. She has no special abilities (at first)

Usopp is the crew's marksman. He's very cowardly and tells lies all the times (hence the long nose). He spends his time creating weapons and explosives.

Sanji is the chef of the crew. He always has his trademark cigarette and instantly falls in love with any woman he sees. He fights with his feet so he won't damage his hands.

Tomorrow we'll get into the tragic pasts of the Strawhats and find out just what motivates them.

Looney Bay: The Great Candy Commission

Its missions week in Looney Bay.

Lesson: The Great Commission

Script: The Amazing Who missed Halloween due to the time change, so he asked Moody to give out free candy to everyone he saw. The Devil arrives and convinces Moody not to give out candy. Reasons included "They'll make fun of you", "He doesn't deserve candy", "He's different than you". At the end Moody missed out on great rewards because he didn't give out the free gift.

Thoughts: I hate to toot my own horn but this was a good script. Some weeks I write scripts and they go nowhere but this one was clear and on point.

Oh and John did a killer magic trick this week. I saw a few kid's heads explode. It was crazy.

Goofs: None

Overview: Good week.
