Hard to believe December is already here, and yet it is (*sigh*). It’s also time for the space junk cleanup, where i throw out all the stuff from the week that buzzed my nerd control tower. And since this nerd girl closet ain’t gonna clean itself, let’s get started:
Secret Agent Man: At a press conference earlier this week, Sony Pictures released details regarding the 24th James Bond film entitled, “Spectre”, a reference to “Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion”, a global terrorist organization from previous films in the popular franchise. Sam Mendes (“Skyfall”) will take the helm again, with Daniel Craig back to fill out the MI-6 agent’s tuxedo. He’ll be joined by Monica Belluci, Lea Seydoux, and Dave Bautista, with Rory Kinnear, Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris resuming their “Skyfall” roles. The eminently watchable and always entertaining Christoph Walz (“Inglorious Basterds” and “Django Unchained”) has also signed on to play the villain (who else?). But perhaps the most exciting development was Kevin Spacey’s congratulatory tweet that poked fun at the rumor he’d been cast as the next Bond villain:
He’s Not Lovin’ It: An Iowa man was arrested earlier this week for using a McDonald’s McChicken sandwich as a weapon. Apparently, the man’s pregnant wife woke him from a nap and presented him with the sandwich, after which he proceeded to smash the bun into her face and ultimately break her nose. He admitted he assaulted her with the $1 menu item because he “doesn’t like them.” You know, because that’s a completely and totally sane reaction. And I should know. Whenever someone brings me a Filet-O-Fish, this is how I usually react first ….
…and then, this because bitch don’t you know i hate tartar sauce ?!?
….and, finally, this, because I wanted Long John Silver’s, or at least Captain D’s, dammit!!!
All kidding aside, if you’re gonna flip out and assault someone simply because you didn’t like the fast food they gave you, then your sorry ass belongs somewhere other than a jail.
The Force Awoke: Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know that Disney released the first teaser trailer for the new Star Wars film on Black Friday. And all the fanboy and fangirl heads went…
And that’s it for this week, kiddos! I’ll be back, Jack, to do it again next week, same blog, same time! Until then …
