Holy Crazy Colors of Oa

I’ve been pretty hyped up about Blackest Night.

The new comic week came and with it came the latest installments of the saga. We saw more of the Orange Lanterns, the Red Lanterns and the Star Sapphires in Blackest Night: Tales of the Green Lantern Corp.

Black Lanterns, rings, Black Hand, Scar

More importantly, we saw one of the first real interactions between a (all together now… Woooooaaaaaah) Black Lantern with the DC meta human population. While I still do not know the powers and motivations of the Black Lantern, I do love their powers of being able to see others’ affinity with the different colors in the spectrum.

Of course, the ongoing comic con at San Diego threw up this lovely lil image of a new range of action figures for Hal Jordan as the various colored Lanterns.

Scar Noodles

You Faithful Readers would probably know about my recent preoccupation with scars and how Cool they look.

Now that the scab on the Chin is slowly but surely developing some scar tissues. Now, one of the primary laws of life is that you HAVE to know where any scars on your body rates on the Coolness Charts.

I needed to know so badly that I actually went out to search for “Scars” on the Internet. For those that know me, you’d probably think, “How masochistic is that?” Come to think of it, even if you don’t know me, you’ll probably be thinking the same thing too…

There’s a bit of history in this in the sense that I am a pussy when it comes to gore.

In fact, my gore tolerance is so low that the most gory scene I can tolerate on the big screen without flinching is Travolta plunging that needle into Uma’s (almost un)heaving bosoms. And to this day, I cannot under state how important a role the bosoms play in this, seeing that flinching is out of the question if you want a clear view of the bosom.

Anyway, my point is that Google’s result for “Scars” is a little overwhelming. Too much garbage.

Manage to sieve out this new search engine, RankNoodle.com which is kinda cool.

For example, searching for  “Scars” actually gave a definition of scars at the top of the search results and on the same page, it shows results for images, video, references AND conversation topics.

That’s right, there are people talking about scars on the internet, and you get to rate if the question is good or not with a thumbs up or thumbs down rating. It is one strange world out there. The search engine’s tag line is “Human powered search”. Don’t know what that means though. Cause the “About us” page is still empty. Guess they must still be relatively new to the business.

One of the cooler functions of this search engine is that it shows, not only the last 10 searches of anyone at all, you can also display the most popular recent  searches.

The world’s becoming a darker place, a sadder place. Oil prices are up. There’re civil unrest everywhere, the economy is heading into recession. It’s heartening to know that at times of crisis like these. People still cares about the finer things in life – namely, sex.

Yup, unsurprisingly, sex remains one of the most searched for keywords.

And not just any kind of sex, mind you. To keep this blog relatively family friendly, I can only say that they are the kind that could involve some serious scarring…

And… I’ve just been reminded on pain and serious bodily harm that on top of not being Funny, having a scar is not Cool as well.

On pain of death and more (totally) Uncool scars.

So, I shall go back to my favorite activity whenever I find new search engines to play with…

Yup.

The same fun we all can have  “Googling Google”

Scar lives!

Oh dear… after the last 2 post regarding Scar, “Be Prepared” was lodged in my head.. BIG TIME…. Might also have to do with the fact that I kinda have the song on loop, but still….

Anyway, third time’s the charm…. found the clip for “Be Prepared” (don’t you just love youtube?) here

And more entertainingly, a MULTI LANGUAGE version of that song! Very very cool…

The guttural languages (Polish, German) work exceptionally well here, sounds like he’s perpetually growling… And the Mexican one makes me picture Scar in Sambero with mustache… Danish guy actually makes him sound like such a pretty boy (which he is, of course). And they should just sack the Zulu and Czech translator for making Scar sounds like such a boor.

After all that I am very convinced that Scar should be either Yakuza boss Japanese or French. Though Scar sounds decidedly Godfatherly in Italian, it comes a distant second (third?) behind these 2… I doubt any other language can make him sound as snobby and aloft as the French can. Viva La Scar!

Special mention goes to the Dutch translator though… for making him sound like Daffy Duck… DessPPhhhfficable

And i wonder why people say I have a tendency to get fixated on something once I find it mildly engaging and interesting… If only I could set my mind to it, I’m pretty sure this brain would be a diabolical tool for EEEVvvviil.

Aren’t you amazed by the amount of information you are learning from this blog alone? In the words of the Boss:

STICK WITH ME AND YOU’LL NEVER GO HUNGRY AGAIN

But THICK as you are, pay ATTENTION!

My words are a matter of pride.

Easily my favorite song of all Disney movies and my favorite villain too.


Which Disney Villain Are You?

You are part Jafar. “How many times do I have to kill you boy?” You just want to be big and powerful… Is that so much to ask? I mean, you deserve it.
You are part Scar. Pride and respect matter to you most. Like you said yourself, “Simba, it’s to die for.” You are the most vicious of all villains. You even killed your brother. Worst still, you did it on the big screen in front of millions of little, unexpecting children. You, single handedly, can make a whole generation admit they cried: once.
