A new tv spot is out for Captain America: The First Avenger featuring a modern day discovery of Cap frozen in ice. Very cool (no pun intended).

I AM OPTIMUS PRIME



Angie and Chad's "I Am Optimus Prime" parodies Black Eyed Peas' "The Time".  The lyrics are below, so sing along:

"Freedom is the right of all sentient beings"
Chorus
I am Optimus Prime.
And i lead the Autobots in War
And i swear, justice and truth
And i'll fight my best for you

Oh, i am Optimus Prime
And you can buy my figure at the store
On sale. It's so cool.
And i want to play with you.

Auto Bot!
Auto Bot!

I can look just like a truck
The Decepticons suck
They destroyed my home planet
and i've had about enough
So come on, let's go
Autobots let's roll
We're going to fight
Til we can fight no more

I got Ratchet, Mudflap, Wheelie
I love Sam Witwicky
I didn't come to get Go-Bots
Immitators are Icky!
Got the best of all time
That's Optimus Prime
And You can't beat him
'Cause heroes never die

Well, i came here on The Ark
Looking for the All Spark
You can't stop a Transformer
Just by putting it in Park
I'm fighting Megatron
With Megan Fox (not anymore)
Robot in disguise
More than meets the eye

Cause I'm!
Having!
A Good Time!
With Prime!
(i'm telling you)

Chorus Repeat x1

Looking for the perfect place to watch movies at home?  Forget a home theater, all you need is this amazing Mystery Science Theater 3000 headboard for your bed!  Created by Doorman Ideas, this piece was inspired after watching MST3K on his projector.  Now if you'll excuse me, I need to stop by the hardware store to buy a router saw.

CLARENCE CLEMONS DEAD AT 69


Clarence Clemons, of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, has died at 69 due to complications from a stroke. Billboard has more:


"The death of saxophone player Clarence Clemons ripped a hole in Bruce Springsteen’s music and onstage life, taking away a figure who had served him loyally for decades and never failed to add joy to the E Street Band’s epic performances.

Clemons died Saturday at age 69, about a week after he suffered a stroke at his home in Singer Island, Fla.
It’s not the first loss for the rock world’s best-known and most accomplished backup band. Keyboard player Danny Federici died in 2008 of melanoma. Steve Van Zandt, Springsteen’s youthful friend and closest partner, left for several years in the 1980s and was replaced on guitar by Nils Lofgren. When Van Zandt returned, Lofgren stayed.
Yet Clemons’ loss cuts deeply into the soul of the band. His importance was acknowledged whenever Springsteen performed “Tenth Avenue Freeze-out,” when he sang, “We made that change uptown and the Big Man joined the band,” inevitably followed by a wail of Clemons’ sax and a roar from the crowd. The two men met in 1971 on the New Jersey bar band circuit, and when Springsteen released his debut album two years later, Clemons left a more successful outfit for a new Boss.


Inevitably Clemons’ introduction was the climax every night when Springsteen presented the individual band members to the audience, accompanied by a variety of regal nicknames like “Master of the Universe” and “King of the World.”


“Do I have to say his name?” Springsteen would shout to the crowd.


“No!” came the roar back. He did anyway.


Last fall’s release of “The Promise,” which included a DVD of a 1978 Springsteen concert performance, underscored the central role of Clemons in the act. The two men were a marked physical contrast: a bedgraggled, slightly scrawny white guitar player and a 6-foot-5-inch, 270-plus-pound black man with a sax — known simply as the Big Man —who would be intimidating if he didn’t so often carry a smile."
