Ah the good old days

My prime cartoon watching years were between 1977 and 1992 (ok I probably watched cartoons longer than I should have.) Starting with classics like Grape Ape, Atom Ant, Secret Squirrel and McGilla Gorilla. Moving on to things like The Transformers, He-Man, GI-Joe, and all the other half hour long toy commercials. I've enjoyed them all, and never once did I stop to think that there was anything wrong with any of them.

Today I had reason to recall one of my favorites, Under Dog. Which was acutally several cartoons in one. Each episode had 2 shorts of Underdog, and then a segment or two of other cartoons in between. I have to think about these, because I'm wanting to confuse them with shorts that appeared on Rocky and Bullwinkle, another show that followed the same format. Just to be sure, I looked them up. The other shows were The World of Commander McBragg, Klondike Cat, and Go Go Gophers, the reason I'm writing this now actually.

I looked up the lyrics to it's theme song. Here they are:
Out west in Gopher Gulch lived Indian tribe.
Then come the pioneers, pushed them aside.
All Indians leave but two, they vow to fight.
What can two Indians do?

Go go gophers, watch them go go go.
Go go gophers, watch them go go go.

Here comes the colonel with his sargeant,
Both are a-roarin' and a-chargin'.
Go go gophers, watch them go go go.

Two little Indians, no others near.
Colonel he vows these two soon disappear.
Fighting the army with soldiers galore.
What can two Indians do?

Go go gophers, watch them go go go.
Go go gophers, watch them go go go.

Here comes the colonel with his sargeant,
Both are a-roarin' and a-chargin'.
Go go gophers, watch them go go go.
Go go gophers, watch them go go go.

You know, not once as a child did I stop and think that this show was about the last two members of an entire tribe of Native Americans, who were robbed of their land and force into some kind of trail of tears death march to some reservation, fighting against the might of the United States Army for their very survival. I just thought the show was funny. Hell I think we were still playing Cowboys and Indians back then.

Now I don't like to get all politically correct but really how did this show get made? I may have make a list of other TV shows that could never be made today. The thing is, I don't know if I'm more enriched because I grew up with these kind of things or not.

Making the world a better place

We as a species have some problems. We're dependent on gasoline and oil. We're running out of gasoline and oil. We like things made out of plastic. Plastic is also made out of oil. We like to throw our plastic things away. Plastic does not decompose. Thus, 100 million tons of our plastic that's made out of oil is now circling lazily in the middle of the Pacific. So what can we do about it? Well, here's a thought, searching the internet, I found 2 ways to convert plastic to oil. There's Thermal_depolymerization A neat little process that's currently turning lots of turkey parts into sweet crude oil. There's also this neat giant microwave thingy that is supposed to do the same thing. Now, if you were to take a giant oil tanker, strap on a giant dredge pump to suck the plastic into one of it's holds, and then stick one of these two types of conversion methods on the top, you could theoretically sail out in to the pacific, suck up all this plastic, and sell the oil for a nice profit. After start up costs, and basic necessities (food, water, etc.) for the crew of the boat. I would imagine the rest would be pure profit, plus, you'd be making the world a cleaner place! I haven't done any numbers yet, but it really seems like the perfect solution. We'd clean up the pacific. Doing so would pay for itself, you wouldn't need to transport much except the oil you're turning the plastic into which could probably also be used to drive your ship. Plus, this could easily scale up to multiple ships. I'm almost tempted to figure out how to write this up as a proposal and go seeking funding. Except for the fact that I don't know how to do that. And I really don't have the time or money to take off work and go flying out to where ever the money is. And I have no management skills. But I hope someone sees this and runs with it.

Spread the word! Stop Uwe Boll



Ladies and Gentleman, we finally have a chance to rid the cinematic world of a cancer. Uwe Boll, the German director behind such horrid video game adaptations as House of the Dead, BloodRayne, Dungeon Siege and Postal, has recently admitted that he would retire from making movies if enough people want him to stop. When FearNet mentioned to Boll a petition online signed by 18,000 people requesting that he cease making films, Boll responded that “18,000 is not enough to convince me.” So how much would be enough?

Indeed, now we have a goal. All we need is 980,000 more signatures on this petition and we can rid the world of future Boll-directed/produced cinematic atrocities. as my friend Scott Weinberg on Cinematical points out, Tunnel Rats, Far Cry, Zombie Massacre and BloodRayne 3 are already in production. So we might not be able to stop those productions. Be we just might have the ability to prevent a BloodRayne 4 or House of the Dead 3. So sign now!
