Megan Fox, the Foxy Gamer!

I'll admit, I'm not that huge of a Megan Fox fan. Yes, she's a babe, but the looks can only go so far. If she were a more talented actress, then I guess would feel otherwise, but she's not (at least not yet). However, assuming the following article is true and not fabricated by sweaty palmed geeks, then her street cred is going up in my books.

In an interview with What They Play (credit Kotaku), Fox talks about her gaming life past and present. It's not the generic celebrity answer of "I play Super Mario", or "I love Tetris", or even the more generic "I play solitaire". No, she speaks more truthfully about her geek life. Her first game was Disney's Aladdin for the SNES. But the game she's loved the most and still plays nowadays, is Mortal Kombat (and it's various incarnations). She says that right now she's playing through Mortal Kombat VS DC, and she even goes further to say that she hates playing as Superman, because his combos "were so weird".

What a babe eh? It's too bad that I don't like Mortal Kombat... but I'd kick her ass at Street Fighter IV... in my dreams.

If you want to read the original articles you can find them here (What They Play / Kotaku).

Anyhow, I leave you with this gif that someone posted on the F4W board. Later geeks.

Is it just me or does she look like a hybrid of J.Lo and Catherine Zeta-Jones?

DTV Madness: Jack Brooks - M.S. and Gingerdead Man 2

Okay, honestly, I think this will be the last DTV post for a while. One man can only take so much shit. I'm only human, I have feelings too. These two movies pushed my limit. I'm going to be in DTV-detox for the next month or so.

Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer

I thought that with a title like this, it couldn't fail. I thought that with a poster like they had, it couldn't fail. Then I realized something... I failed. I failed in thinking that this movie had any hope.

I was expecting some fun horror, mixed with comedy in sort of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer kind of fashion with a bumbling hero and smart quips. I mean, with a title like Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, was I wrong in expecting a variety of monsters get slayed as the title suggests?

It didn't help much that the monsters looked uber cheesy. They looked like something right out of a Power Rangers episode. But to their credit, at least they stuck with practical make-up and effects rather than CG.

The movie its…

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 …

The Science of God

Not too long ago, two of my friends had posted their thoughts on evolution and creationism. Both friends shared similar sentiments on the topic (you can view Skylar's here and Keith's here). Coincidence or not, shortly before they made their postings, I purchased a book called The Science of God by Dr. Gerald Schroeder, which was based on the same topic. Unfortunately, at the time of my friend's postings, I had not finished the book, but now I have.

In The Science of God, Schroeder attempts to debunk the dichotomy that exists between science/evolution and creationism. He tries to show that there can exist a duality between the two and that discoveries in science actually prove the story of creation in the bible.

The book can be roughly divided into three categories that being the concepts of time, the second with the biology of evolution, and lastly the concept of free will.

In describing time, he focuses on the 6 days that are explained in the beginning of Genesis. Duri…
