Transformers

Posted in play by Greg on the June 27th, 2007

Having watched transformers as a wee lad, I’ve been looking forward to the new transformers movie ever since I first got wind of it. Yesterday I bought my advance tickets for next Monday’s sneak preview. I’m trying hard not to get my hopes up, nor to set my expectations to high, but it isn’t working. If the movie is bad, I’ll probably be devastated. It’s funny how we can have so much nostalgia for something from childhood, even when it isn’t that great from an adult perspective. I acquired every episode of the transformers cartoon a couple years ago, but I’ve only watched a handful of them since then. I tried, but it just wasn’t that great. I preferred to stop watching and preserve the memory of it being awesome. But now, with a new live action movie coming out, I have a chance to be entertained by transformers as an adult. Here’s hoping that it will be great :)

This is a screenshot from Forza 2, a racing game on the 360. I will not reveal how many hours it took me to create the Decepticon logo on that Supra using the in-game editor (you would laugh at me). Suffice it to say, that I had to combine 30 plus polygons to construct it.

I dont usually participate in these things, but when Delara asks, Delara gets :)

Seven random things chosen entirely non-randomly:

1. I have every episode of star trek ever. That’s right, all 704 episodes. Yes, the 10 movies too.

2. I dream of an ’89 Supra an averge of twice a week. I used to have this car and loved it.

3. I was on cnbc back when i worked for the geeksquad. I realize that geeksquad is now a crappy unit of bestbuy. But, once upon a time, they were awesome. See it here

4. I once threw my shoes into a river in kazakhstan.
