She-hulk SMASH! Guess avoiding Backstory is Freya’s Spinach. Everybody Sing along!
(Yeah, that’s Bluto/Brutus playing “Sinbad”)
Damn, Elfguy beat me to it…
I did think taking a spinchy approach to this would be funny.
Bluto’s small beady cold dead-black eyes will haunt me in my sleep. *shudder*
Like a shark’s.
If that wizard is still around, maybe Bluto shouldn’t brag about how he is going to betray him. Especially not at shouting volume.
Villains only have one volume setting. That’s why I’m an anti-hero. Anti-hero, you hear?!!
Given his physique and mannerisms I think he’ll be played by Brian Blessed when the H.O.L.E movie comes out.
Now there’s a topic! What’s the rest of your dream cast?
I’m kinda bad with picking actors as I tend to forget them and their names. I’m kinda bad with all such lists and would rather answer questions in a format like “would X be good playing as Y?” rather than trying to think up “who should play Y?”. I’m better at responding to other people’s cast-lists, if I can remember who this or that actor is anyway.
But everyone knows who Brian Blessed is.
I used to have one. Lessee if I can remember…
Bunker: Dwayne Johnson
Enkidu: Dane Cook (Forgot his name. Found it by Googling “Asshole Comedian”.)
Freya: Gina Torres
Don’t think I can remember anyone else I had picked. Let’s see what else I can come up with…
Martin: Paul Bettany
Fleece: Elizabeth Banks
Morty: Zach Galafianakis
Zobbie: Gabrielle Union maybe? It would have to be someone youthful.
You’re calling someone who’s 38 years old “youthful”? Man, you really are old! 😛
I think Allan Rickman would suit Martin, if we’re ignoring age issues. But then again, as a caster, especially a rather evil, anti-hero one, being somewhat old helps…I mean, who’d want to see a young wizard running around the movie?
And as to Bunker being played by The Rock, I always got the feeling of Bunker as your typical American Caucasian, slightly-dumb football player(he’s also fair-skinned and blond, IIRC from the color period of the comic), and being the group’s fighter doesn’t help matters in my mind.
All this regarding the D&D characters, not their real-life counterparts, of course, so maybe I’m not getting the right nuances like you can.
I think it would have to be a younger cast, and most of the stars I’m familiar with are way too old these days.
What about some of the supporting roles? I’m going to nominate Sam Elliott as Erias, Richard O’Brien as Vorpine, Robert Knepper as von Rocschlossen (or whatever he’s called), Lucy Liu as Velvet and (inspired edit) Bill Hader as Mars.
And the Oscar goes to….
They do get old awfully fast don’t they? It looks like all the big stars of my childhood and teen years are now 40+ or just about kissing it, and those were the young ones!
Of course it’s not me getting old, it’s just them.
Oh no, Freyas kryptonite…The npc backstory!
Also, he seem to have nabbed Zobbies shoulderpads.
Nasty Bluto, getting an asskicking by Freya serves him right.
Need a little tech-support here. A site I frequent has suddenly decided I can’t come in, claiming that:
“Firewall software decided your IP address is abusing this server. Use of automated software that does not follow /robots.txt is forbidden. Broken RSS reader is the most common cause.”
Now, either this is telling me I have some sort of spy-bot installed all of a sudden, or that something has gone wrong with the RSS reader. Either way I have no clue since I’m pretty sure my AV program would’ve caught anything unusual(and it’s possible I’ve completely misunderstood what the problem even is and they’re not saying there’s some virus in my system), and I’ve never in my life bothered clicking on any RSS subscription button so I’m not even sure where to look to fix it. Do I need to reinstall my FF browser? I’ve already tried updating my few add-0ns and plug-ins(why does Flash Player update so often? you’d think it’d be perfected by now), to no avail, which isn’t that surprising since I don’t think they’ve got anything to do with RSS reading.
do you use torrents?
google indicates the torrent programs might have somthing to do with it, if not maybe its just broken
As a matter of fact the site I can’t access is a torrent search site, so yes. The second search result of this list actually describes my case exactly, as Torrentz is the site in question. Thanks, I’ll check what they say there and hopefully there’s an easy fix.
Seems like I’m really not the only one with this problem lately. If I got this right then it could be that the site is blocking my ISP. Someone suggested it but it still sounds strange. Maybe I’ll try to hide my IP and see how it works.
Speaking of trouble accessing sites, I’ve had quite a few problems loading HOLE. Right now I’m replying to my post because I’m getting a 404 code on the edit window. I hope it’s just some hiccups of the HOLE’s server and not my ISP fucking up, because I hate calling those bastards.
I couldent edit either
yesterday I couldent access hole so no its not just you
heh wounder if the internet upgrades in process in cuba are responsible
We got a new and better server, which ought to make things betterer and fasterer. But first it has to make things bumpierer and confusingerer. Don’t worry though. That part will be over soon.
There’s internet in Cuba?! 😯
Yeah, yeah, I know Cuba has the most modern infrastructures, school system, health-care and is practically a utopia thanks to its glorious and just leader(s) and the ideals of the socialism, despite the oppression by its capitalistic and imperialistic neighbors, but just had to make the joke.
Hail Castro! Err, both of them. 😉
Cuba had broadband access, but the Gerbil died of exhaustion….
This is not true. The Gerbil has simply withdrawn from public events for the forseeable future but continues to be in strong health despite the dozens of attempts by CIA-backed assassins to end his glorious life. The internet is now powered by his younger and less famous brother.
Dunno what country your living in but many ISP’s are blocking/limiting/restricting bandwith heavy user and websites. Torrent sites are the bain of ISP’s so if your a heavy user I’d cut back a bit for a little while or check on other sites.
It could also just be a software issue, reinstall your web-browser and torrent tool and that should fix it.
Everything points to the site itself blocking me(and my ISP, as I’ve seen quite a few calls for help from people using my ISP in Stephen’s search, not to mention my ex who also only now found himself blocked). He did find at least a temporary solution for us though, we’re now using the site only with an “.eu” suffix instead of “.com”.
In case it also becomes blocked later on I’ll either use a proxy or move on to other sites.
Enkidu being netted is hysterical. He just looks so helpless…
Had to post this link of one of my favorite Popeye cartoons, where he battles Bluto as Sindbad the Sailor:
