Plastic Krack

Plastic Krack is a newest website put together by Nate Slater, founder of  http://www.bitkingdom.com/ .  Plastic Krack is to minaitures what Woot is to consumer elctronics. New items are added regulary, one product at a time untill the inventory is liquidated. Imperial Guard Shadowswords, Ork Stompas, and Realms of Battle Gaming boards have been offered at significant discounts, for those lucky enought to get them while supplies last. There is even a mailing list that gives it’s members a heads up when new items are listed. If you play Warhammer 40K or Fantasy, or are just interested in Games Workshop Models in general, you should give http://www.plastickrack.com/ a look.

BitzKingdom  offers Games Workshop Miniatures at a discount, friendly customer service, and reasonable shipping rates. Bitz orders are usually under what Neil at http://www.thewarstore.com/ is asking and his discounts on whole models is greater as well.

I’m a member of the http://www.bkinnercircle.com/, and a happy customer, so I figured I’d spread the news

Alexander the Great

In the time it took me to

  1. walk upstairs
  2. slip out of my clothes (I’m good at it, lots of practice)
  3. pee in the toilet

Alexander mananges to:

  1. wake up
  2. escape his mother’s grasp
  3. get naked
  4. pee on the carpet
  5. pee on his little sofa bed
  6. pee on his mother’s leg

If I didn’t have to run downstairs naked to mop up urine I would have just sat there laughing hysterically.

Why I don’t Drink Beer

Headline: “There’s trouble brewing, guys”
Byline: “Bavarian men might want to rethink their annual Oktoberfest revels in light of a new study”

“You have to hope that this study is flawed, but the evidence seems irrefutable. Several months ago, scientists at Europe’s annual human reproduction conference suggested that the results of a recent analysis revealed the presence of female hormones in beer, and suggested that men should take a look at their beer consumption. The theory is that drinking beer turns men into women.

To test the theory, 100 men were each fed six pints of beer within a one hour period. It was then observed that 100% of the men gained weight, talked excessivly without making sense, became overly emotional, couldn’t drive, failed to think rationally, argued over nothing, had to sit down while urinating, couldn’t perform sexually, and refused to apologize when wrong.

No further testing is planned.”

LESS HEROICS

I just found out that The Middleman TV series was cancelled.

ABC Family finally had a good show and it only gets a 12 episode run.

Someone call SciFi channell quick and tell them to make one less crappy movie of the week and finance The Middleman season 2.

On a positive note, the entire series will be appearing on DVD in July along with a comic book “season finale” being released at the same time.

Lots of juicy Middlegossip on the MiddleBlog http://themiddleblog.livejournal.com/

MORE HEROICS

It’s uncertain if we’ll get more episodes of NO HEROICS on ITV but ABC has green lit a NO HEROICS Pilot Episode for American audiences.

They at least have the original show creator Drew Pearce on board. Somehow I imagine the cast becoming more attractive while the foul language and sex fade away.

My tip to Hollywood: If your going to relocate the show to the USA, create new characters who exist in the same universe as the current show. That way us fan boys can still watch it without bitching how the ITV version of each character is better, etc..

Bonus points if they chronicle the Hotness’ journey to LA

I just discovered http://www.noheroics.com/ It has charecter bios, interviews, and No Heroics related news.
