Survivor: Gabon - Finale

From left to right: Sugar, Kenny, Bob, Matty, Susie

Last night was the finale of Survivor: Gabon, and a bit lackluster if you ask me. So my three original choices from episode one were Kenny (The Gamer), Crystal (The Olympic Gold Medalist), and GC (The Token Brotha). Of my three choices, two of them made it to the final six, so not bad. Unforunately, neither of them would comprise the final three survivors.

The final four comprised of Sugar (The Pin-Up), Bob (The Physics Teacher), Susie (The Invalid), and Matty (The Workhorse). It was so clear that if Bob made it to the final three, that he would win the million dollars as the jury was made up of people from his old tribe, and clearly people who would not vote for Sugar and Susie. The last elimination vote basically came down to Matty or Bob leaving. Originally, they were unanimous on voting Bob out, but for whatever dumbfuck reason, Sugar, who I think is clinically retarded, decides maybe she can vote for Matty bringing the elimination to a tie. Wait a second. What the fuck!?!??! It made me angry to watch this. What the flying fuck was she thinking!?!?!??! Did she forget who the jury was? At least if she kept Matty on, she would have an even chance, I mean none of the jury really liked Sugar, Matty, or Susie. By keeping Bob in sealed her fate.

So the vote went to a tie, sending Matty and Bob to a fire making challenge to break it. Bob won. And yeah, in the end, Bob won the whole thing.

The final votes? 4 for Bob, and 3 for Susie. I have no doubt that those Susie votes are only because the jury members neither wanted to vote for Bob or Sugar, so it was the default choice. And, I bet that if Matty would have stayed, he would of won.

So Bob, the 57 year old physics teacher is a new millionaire. Well, if anything, I guess he deserves it, he played a good game. I was still rooting for Kenny though. Fuck that Sugar, screwed'em all!

Later geeks.

I didn't watch this show at all this year...I remember when the show first started and I thought, "what?! They can't do that. They can't drop people on an island and film them and see how they survive!" But then in came reality TV as we came to know it.

Oh. And I'm a dork. I thought Kevin was you. So read my last blog and read the comments, there's one for you there. You'll see what I mean. :P

I loved it the best when it first came out. It was the same summer that I worked at Wonderland, and I remember the day after every episode, we'd all talk about it while making cotton candy. Fond memories.

I stopped watching a few in the middle, but have picked it back up in the past 3 years. Sometimes I can get too into it, and it makes me angry (and "sweary"), but I love it all the same.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens!!!!!!!!!!

(Warning: Spoilers Ahead)
Star Wars!!!!  After a 10 year gap we finally receive a new entry into the now Disney owned Star Wars franchise!  So it is apt that the new entry is called the Force Awakens.
The movie starts off 30 years from where the Return of the Jedi last left us.  The Empire has fallen and the Rebels have seemingly disbanded.  But from the ashes of the past, a new threat has risen.  Out of the fallen Empire, a new army called the First Order has spawned, threatening to finish off what the Empire set out to do –  eliminate the force by terminating the last known Jedi, Luke Skywalker.  But as the Empire has evolved so have the Rebels.  Led by General Leia Organa, the Resistance (or the new Rebels) aims to find Luke first, to stop the First Order.
We are told this story through two new main characters.  Rey, who is a scavenger on the planet Jakku, who harvests scrap metals to earn a meal.  Finn, a turncoat stormtrooper who realizes his purpose could be something more than j…

R.I.P. Evan Tanner

The body of the professional fighter and former UFC champion, Evan Tanner, 37, was found in the Palo Verde mountain area of California on September 8th, 2008. He was found a few miles away from his campsite on foot, with no water, where the temperatures were around 110 degrees fahrenheit. The coroner's report listed the cause of death as from heat exposure.

Tanner left Oceanside, California on September 2nd. On September 4th, he sent a text message to a friend telling him that his motorcycle was out of gas, that he was out of water, and if his friend didn't hear from him the next day, to call the authorities. Unfortunately, Evan never returned home.

I'm not the hugest MMA fan, I consider myself a casual fan, and a n00b at best. I was listening to Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer Radio, and the story of Tanner's life sounded intriguing.

As fantastic as it sounds, Tanner ventured into the deserts in search of treasure and adventure. I kid you …

That's just RELIGULOUS!

I won tickets to an early screening of Religulous and took my brother to watch it earlier tonight. The film was directed by Larry Charles (of Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Borat fame), but clearly this was the Bill Maher show.

The movie follows Maher as he treks around the world trying to find out why people believe what they do. He is basically questioning them as to why they are so certain, as he himself tries to promote doub.t The movie primarily focuses on western religions, but in the latter half he tries to do a lightning round with other faiths (ie. Scientology, Mormonism, Islam, etc).

He interviews a bevy of loony characters to ensure laughs, and oftentimes with a smug and arrogant flair. In that sense, the movie works as it balances with more serious talks as he learns about other religions. But more often than not, the discussions are with wacky people rather than learned professionals.

One of the high points for me was a scene in a London park where he pretended to …
