"Ash lyric, eh?"
Just one of the many anagrams that can be made from Chris Haley.

I don't know if any of you give a rip about hearing about how I feel about things or what's going on in my life, but if you're interested I plan on keeping all of that kind of stuff at the livejournal and keeping this page more geared towards entertaining you. So you can pick and choose what you feel like hearing about from me, if anything at all.

You are Cyclops!
You're Scott Summers, one of the original members of the X-Men. You can fire hugely powerful optic blasts from your eyes... which means you get to wear all sorts of cool shades all the time!
Which X2 Character Are You?
From Dani!

I know some of you have been curious as to what our band, The Collapse, sounds like. So I took the liberty of recording one of the awesome rock guitar solos from one of our songs so you could hear how awesome we are.

You are Spider-Man!
Take the "Which Marvel Comics Hero are you" quiz!

Everyone that doesn't have any Fountains of Wayne needs to go here and get some right now!!

Show me! Show you! Kikkoman! Kikkoman!

This has nothing to do with that link above (which is funny), but it was on my mind just now so I'll go ahead and say it. So people just don't get it. You know?

Sometimes life throws something at you that you weren't expecting.. even if you're a monkey scientist.

Also, this link was passed along to me via Doug.

Like a phoenix from the ashes, ATARI returns!

I love the Muppets and pretty much anything else with Jim Henson's name on it, so it goes without saying that I was pleased with this news.

Do what now?

Our prayers have finally been answered!

My 5th of July has officially been planned now, as FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE will be in Nashville! The entire tour listings are now available on their site as well as a clip of thier new single, "Stacy's Mom" which I'm enjoying as we speak. Also, their new album will be available June 10, so you should mark that date on your calendar as well.

"Have you ever been sitting there watching TV and you're drinking the exact same product that they're advertising right there on TV? And they're spiking volleyballs, jet skiing, girls in bikinis. And you're sitting there, 'Maybe I'm putting too much ice in mine. I'm not getting that effect.'" - Jerry Seinfeld

Our band is your band.
First show.
3 other bands.
May 23.
8 PM.
If you don't know you can be given directions or a ride.

If you like Spider-Man, and honestly who doesn't, you might be interested to know that there will be a Spider-Man Marathon on ABC Family on May 24 starting at 9:30am (Eastern Time).

Indiana Jones is finally coming to DVD! Go ahead and mark November 4 on your calendars.

This intrigues me.. I believe the Discovery Channel will be airing a special on this subject sometime soon also.

For the Harry Potter fans that visit Hip Today.

Superman is getting some video game lovin' soon. Hopefully these will be good.

Also, since I'm sure all of you are dying to know, yes, I've finally seen X-Men II (I don't want to call it X2!), and I really enjoyed it. Quite a bit. (If you haven't seen it I might spoil some of it for you in this little rant so you've been warned.) I'm more excited to see it again than I was to see it the first time. My general feeling is that if a movie has a scene that makes me want to stand up and "Wahoo!" in the middle of a theater then it's a really good movie. This movie had several such scenes. Quite a few in fact. But that may be in part due to the fact that I'm a huge comic dork. I literally had to stop myself from doing so during Colossus' big scene. Pyro was great. Magneto was great. Nightcrawler was outstanding. Very pleased was I with how well they made that work. Alan Cumming delivered a performance that made me want to smack the people who wouldn't ever let him finish his introduction of himself. For heaven's sake just let that sweet man tell you what his name is and what he was known as in the Munich circus! Hugh Jackman made himself forever Wolverine in my eyes during the invasion of the mansion scene. I mean when he grabs that guy and says, "Boy did you pick the wrong house." I mean come on! But then when he pops the claws on that guy and then proceeds to start f***ing people up Wolvie-Berserk-style, that did it. He didn't even have to be in the rest of the flick. The costumes were cooler for this flick in my opinion. I think the greatest improvement in this flick though was the huge leap in quality in the SFX and the fight choreography. I didn't like everything about the flick though. Cyclops was barely in the flick.. which displeases me. I'm sure I'm forgetting things.. I may add more later. That's enough for now though. I like hearing from all of you, so make with the comments please.

Honest to God quote from Randi: "I think you're very pretty."
Like a school-girl I was with the giddy.

Alex mentioned my new Livejournal on hers, and this is one of the many reasons I have much of the love for her.

Tim Burton is working on a new stop motion animated movie called The Corpse Bride. I was excited to hear this. I love Tim Burton. I love stop motion animation. I love corpses. Wait.. scratch that last one.

You are Cyclops!
You are attractive and strong, in a boy scout
republican sort of way. You are set firm in
your beliefs, which is not necessarily a bad
thing. But often when faced with a conflicting
opinion you become defensive and angry and
prone to conflict. You like to be a leader,
but you must acknowledge that there are some
situations which others are better fit to deal
with than yourself.
Which X-Men character are you most like?

My thanks to Dani for finding this quiz.
