MISFILEMisfile is an online comic that is done by Chris Hazelton who has worked on many film productions including “End of Days“, “The Hurricane“, “Thirteen Days” and “Spy Game“. But this review is about the online comic itself and not that of Chris :) Misfile start as a teen is just waking up. Scratch that, I just looked again and see that it start with an argument in Heaven and an angel getting kicked out until they are called back. Then the kid wakes up rather confused. You see Ash, the main character in the story, went to sleep as a boy and the whole world knew him as a boy but now he is a she and with a rack to boot. Talk about confusion, you still have all the urges and desires of a male but now are stuck in the body of a female. Just as Ash is freaking out the angel that was kicked out shows up to explain that he is the reason ash is the way that he is. He also further explains that the entire world thinks Ash is a female and remember Ash as always being female. Can you just imagine waking up and being something totally drastically different then you went to sleep? Even the size of Ash’s feet and body have changed to where it makes things even more awkward. The author, Chris, dose a great job in telling the story and it shows.

Review: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

This entry was posted in Action, Fantasy, Horror, Mystery, Sci-Fi by Cleave on

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is one of my more favorite films. With Sean Connery as Allan Quatermain in it why wouldn’t it be. It also stars Naseeruddin Shah as Captain Nemo, Peta Wilson as Mina Harker, Tony Curran as Rodney Skinner (An Invisible Man), Stuart Townsend as Dorian Gray, Shane West as Tom Sawyer and Jason Flemyng as Dr. Henry Jekyll. To be honest I don’t remember seeing any of the other actors till I saw LXG, but then I actually had to look up the names, all except Connery, for this review. I know I have seen this film at least half a dozen times or more and is definitely one of the films I am always re-watching.

Review: The Karate Kid 1984

The Karate Kid staring Ralph Macchio and Noriyuki Pat Morita as Mr. Miyagi. It is one hell of a film and I am glad to hear that they have cast Jackie Chan as the next instructor for The Karate Kid. Pats performance in all of the Katate Kid films is just fantastic. He portrays a war hero from WWII who won the Medal Of Honor for fighting for the United States against Germany. That is just a bit of his back story. Much much more is explained about him past in successful films, but since this review is about the one film, I will leave here only what is known from the first film.

Cultured Corn Sugar My @$!% Ass!!!!

Just look at this link: Corduroy Orange » Blog Archive » Corn Sugar Confusion.

Om my gods I can not believe this, they just applied for a damned name change and before they are even given the go ahead they are already using it. I AM ALLERGIC TO HFCS DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!!

Cultured Corn Sugar is actually High Fructose Corn Syrup and let me tell you what it does to me. 4 years ago I quit smoking and felt great. I started to loose weight and my skin was clearing up and then something happened. I started to eat more processed foods and all the sudden I could not stop eating. I was always hungry and CRAVED nicotine. I figured out by process of elimination that it was 2 things in my diet that was being put into everything that I was buying. Those 2 items were HFCS and Dextrose. I don’t care what the flippin corn growers association and their team of well paid off doctors and scientists say that stuff is POISON. There is no way that you are going to convince me otherwise of that fact since you can clearly see that since it is used in everything kids have gotten fatter and people have just been getting dumber. How the hell can you actually learn anything if you are constantly stuffing your face full of the crap that they want you to buy over and over again.

Sly and tricky labels

This entry was posted in General, Health & Food by Snowfoxx on

I read labels, lots of labels, looking for the potential poison that might enter my food supply. I do not confuse HFCS with regular corn syrup, because regular corn syrup has been a confectionery staple for hundreds of years, for a far longer time than HFCS has been around. You see, the corn growers are finding out that maybe some part of the masses are a bit more clever than the other parts, and have decided it’s time to work their poison into those people who do read the labels. Be wary of the new and improved labels listing now as “cultured corn sugar”, “corn sugar”, and “corn sweetener”. I was even tricked today by the Oscar Meyer company, because I was not wary of this. I scanned the label for the main two culprits, HFCS and dextrose, and they were not listed. Thought maybe it was safe. I really wanted the Oscar Meyer Natural Ham, which is sweetened with celery juice, and has a very clean taste. I opted for the carving board brand, because I did not see the normal red flags. How was I to know the flags had changed?
In another food blog, http://corduroyorange.com, I learned how far this deceptive labeling has gone. Read along at http://corduroyorange.com/?p=782 to learn more. While you are reading up on this mind opening information, you might want to simply add a pack of real beet or cane sugar to your tea. That is one label that will never be altered.
