Dragon Ball : Evolution Review

You know, with all the craze bout making movie adaptions of Marvel or DC comics, you'd think by now movie directors finally got the right guns to shoot a good movie. The rule is very simple - just follow the comics, make quick bucks and get themselves massaged in the spa looking at bodacious babes.

Here's a strip of comics on what 'Dragon Ball : Evolution' is all about after seeing the movie:

But noooo, director James Wong probably farted in his spa room just 2 minutes ago. By having completely revamped the story and slapping some totally unsuitable actors inside, this movie is a total let down for legions of loyal fans all over the world.

Everything just went wrong since the opening. The story changed. Timeline changed. Weird choice of actors. Bad dialogue. Anti climax. Yada. It felt as if the movie can't even elaborate itself well enough for those who never came across the comics, and yet if it expects comic readers to actually like it, why the total revamp? Beats my goober balls. *shrugs*

Infact, it's all about the race to find 7 dragon balls within an hour so Picolo could not take over the world. Reminds me very much of what The Day Before The Earth Stood Still movie, y'know the drill.. "we must hurry, we don't have much time left!" throughout the whole show.

This picture below probably sums up my review.

I wonder if he even read the comics? Akira Toriyama must be turning very picolo right now. Oh my!

Goober's Two Thousand Nine

Ahem.. before I begin, Two Thousand Nine is translated briefly as (2009) in numerical form. That's equivalent to "er ling ling jiu" in mandarin and surprisingly - written as (MMIX) in Roman numeral. Whereas in latin, it can be further sung as a song for new year if you compare it with 2008.

It's almost been a tradition for me to go on hiatus after each post, but seriously this time I had a real reason for it. What exactly took me so long?

It's Simple

Of course, 2009 being a whole new year, surely bunch of things started to happen, right? Well :

1. Got myself the lovable and adorable Nokia 5800.

Which happens to really take photos for this blog now, and um...they really suck and need more editing than old sony ericsson phones.

2. I've got this cute little lantern that lights up but doesn't bark.

3. I bought back my old love in a whole new package. Comes even with, (drull rolls) Korean Manuals!

..and to think my old one only spoke Japanese. Mattaku, that baka was a pain in the ass!

4. I freakin' just broke my chair leg .

on this very chair I'm sitting on blogging right now.

5. And finally, a whole new chapter of life will begin very soon as I'll be moving on to another place.

NOPE...not another new blog! *But* to a land where an abundant flow of Free Wifi will be provided ---

Indiana Jones Review

SOOO I was dragged off to another one of those boring shopping malls recently; with my half opened ho-hum mouth and the look of a very unamused face in that very dull moment of my life that I had to actually PUT.......... step at a time, walking up till I reached the escalator mumbling to myself in shivers that sounded -- " Aaaaggaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaainnnnnn..."

It was so bad my "Nnnn" could still be heard as I reached the top of the escalator.

As I sweeped my legs slowly like a brainsick zombie, the clouds thundered and gave a loud ROAR in the dark in AWE -- children ran every way and the trees shook like never before;
It was a moment of darkness that threw everyone in fear, for this very day marks the very beginning of death itself that has dawned upon us!!!!!

... I continued to walk slowly looking for clothes....err...which isn't even mine.

THEN a thin light glittered out of no where, so bright, so might, I wish I had and I wish I might that it instantly caught my eyes!



(Indy Song)


You know, I've always wanted his Ford.

I used to have these crazy dreams about driving all alone in one-BIG-SUV, with its spanking 131 inches wheel base and 20.1/20.9 departure angles and its unforgettably cool 8.7 minimum running ground clearance.....except that I never understood what those were.

..and THAT's why I bought a toy instead.

Yeap. I love Ford, so I'm a matured man. I bought Harrison Ford's figurine to represent my love for Ford vehicles. I mean it. It wasn't out of pure childishness surely. Oh You know how hard men are to's okay...don't worry..I didn't even doubt your thoughts. Move along now.


I was so surprised seeing Hasbro actually making these for the entire saga of Indiana Jones! Star Wars were great, but.. I never bothered because well....those toys are for kids, whereas my friends, my fellow goobery friends....

Indiana Jones, harkens back to the very early 80's where young Harrison Ford charmed thousands of women with his smart sense of humour and looks, glued even the male audiences with his full action packed stunts, filled with crazy Nazis all over the place chasing believable treasures. It was too good, in fact so good, I got conceived a year after the 1st episode. I think.

So with the box now apart, let's see what's inside :

- the cool infamous whippy whippidy whip.
- *zoiks* scary interchangeable hands.
- 1 x toy gun.
- heck even his cap can be taken off, how cool is that??
- finally....a *secret* ingredient.

The first thing that got unto me was, "DOES THE SKULL WORK?"

Let's try.



.............................................. .. .......... ...

guess not!

Just for the record, that damned skull didn't even glow in the dark. DANG it Hasbro, I'll see you in court very soon.

tribunal case aside -- they came up with the whole saga of the Indiana Jones trilogy models, not just these :

I saw Marion from the Raiders of the Lost Ark, even younger version of Indy himself heck. And even the German mechanic was there. Heck. And some Nazis that I couldn't remember. Hiccup.

Oh yeah and you wanted to know what was inside the box of Secrets right?


It certainly doesn't look like an eye!

For the record, that damned eye of peacock didn't even glow in the dark too.

Dang Hasbro, that's it. I'm sending an elite over to kick your ass---

.......never mind.

Gas Crisis - The Origami Lesson

Oops! this post ended up longer than expected. You're saying....

1. Damn, another long one?! Just bring me to the point. Damn Damnit.


With the way fuel prices are going up, oh what're you going to do?!

You scratch your head, thinking hard for an answer, and you think about how hard you've been scratching your head........ hey this just isn't right!


You bring yourself back in time, memories of the past darting through your mind --

--the first person you saw
---your first laugh
---- your first attempt at breast milk bottle
----- your first walking moment
------ your first time running
-------- your 1000th attempt at older breast milk bottle ------------ *zip*

------------ your very FIRST TOY! The most important thing in life!


And it's costing you your life these days. Let's do a little recap :

With the way fuel prices are going up, oh what're you so going to do?!

Why you freaking make Origami Toys of course!

Why should you even bother??

Because some smart guy with the name of Christopher Beaumont have created extremely good DIY paper crafts. It's so good that you'll be convinced instantly thanks to the conversation I had with him earlier on :

Mr.Goober :Christopher Belmont, why these?

Christopher : "Simply print, cut and fold your model into a cute and fun paper toy."

Mr.Goober : don't really care if people mistook you as part of those game boy castlevania series huh, you Belmont family you?

Christopher : "Simply print, cut and fold your model into a cute and fun paper toy."

Mr.Goober : even have all those great characters from George Lucas, Marvel comics, Nintendo and *choke* Ultra mans?! What the?? You went into some geek school?

Christopher : .........

Christopher : "Simply print, cut and fold your --------- OOOOFFFFFfffff"

Wellllll...Chris is down for a while so let's take a look at some examples has to offer :

Including some of my favourites :

Sam and Max!

I've always wanted to cube Sam up, but this is too much :P

Indiana Jones - And the Kingdom of Boxed Skull

And hey theres' even Kirby!
And and and...

Mario and Resurrected Goomba!

Each characters come with their foldable layouts like this :
You just need to print 'em out and cut them silly.

Then with a little bit of patience..


And that was my first attempt
reducing the ever rising gas prices.

Next week, we'll see how we can save trees by not wasting papers.

Skipped and unsure what's going on?
