Sell Yourself: Andrew Kishino & On Blast Designs

Today I got to meet up with the one and only Andrew “Kish” Kishino. I have heard some of his music, loved it, and met him through one of the best MC’s Dan-e-o a couple years ago. Kishino has a new t-shirt that says so much with so little.

Yeah, you know you want it! Just contact him by clicking this link RIGHT HERE and order one. Its 100% cotton and made in Los Angeles. They come in sizes Small through Extra Large and are produced by On Blast Designs. Check out and follow Kish on Twitter, Facebook, and of course Youtube. Or you can check IMDB for the realist cat I know.

Andrew Kishino has been featured in video games (GI Joe: The Rise Of Cobra, Kung Fu Panda, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2, Mortal Kombat). Cartoons (The LeBrons, GI Joe: Renegades, The Spectacular Spiderman). Announcing and narrating (America’s Got Talent, Best Damn Sports Show Period, E! True Hollywood Story). If you have a TV or play video games you’ve heard him and probably didn’t know. Until now. He’s friggin’ Storm Shadow!

Theater Whore: Green Lantern

“Anything I see in my mind, I can create…” - Green Lantern

I wish he could’ve seen making a good film. Yeah, you all can see where this is going. Like millions of others I have seen Green Lantern and will commence to taking a giant, steaming, Texas sized shit on it. I mean, wow. As I sit here letting this movie sink into my mind I can only ask myself “Who was this film for?

Surely it wasn’t for fans of Green Lantern the character. Maybe it was for fans of Ryan Reynolds (Smokin’ Aces, Just Friends, Waiting). Because if you really want to see a great Green Lantern film all’s you gotta do is check out Green Lantern: First Flight. Now that was a cool ass flick. This…not so much.

This is the story of Hal Jordan who finds a downed spaceship that has an alien that gives him a ring of great power and its battery. Hal isn’t even kinda shocked to not only find a spaceship but a friggin’ alien. Not afraid of mystery diseases it may have or anything. So he buries it. Yeah. Under a pile of rocks. You cant do that in minutes, people. Trust me. I know. Don’t ask.

Babbling Old Man: Three O'Clock High

“I want you to understand something Jerry. I don't like people knowing about me, in fact I don't like it when anyone knows about me. So you can take that paper of yours and wipe off your dick with it! You made me mad Jerry…now I'm gonna have to do something to work it off.” 

Since I am tired of the terrible movies that have been coming out I decided to try something new. I want to talk about some of my favorite films from when I was a kid. A lot of people grew up loving the John Hughes films. Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Less Than Zero, Pretty In Pink. These are what they normally name when asked about their favorites. Mine has been and will always be Three O’Clock High.

What the hell is Three O’Clock High?!” you ask?

Theater Whore: Super 8

I watched Super 8 after the urging of a few of my friends who enjoyed the film. I’m not a huge Steven Spielberg fan who produced this or J.J Abrams who directed. I liked Felicity and the latest Star Trek film. Didn’t like Lost or Alias. When I first saw the trailer for this last year I was like “Whoa.” It was just a train car shaking violently and that was it. All I could think was “Whatever the hell is in that thing it better be awesome!

I’m a huge fan of aliens so when I found out that this was about that I was all excited. But then I remembered J.J Abrams last film with aliens. Yes, Cloverfield. That fucking film made me want to throw up with the amount of shaking in it. So now I’m nervous. Will I get sick? Will I be annoyed? Will I chase Abrams down and box his ears?

Spoilers below!

Theater Whore: Fast Five

I tried to not like this film. I seriously did. I was mad at how much it made when it debuted and couldn’t understand how this movie could pull in so much money with actors who aren’t really known for blockbusters. But I have to admit when I am wrong. Fast Five was pretty good.

Let me state that I refused to watch the third and fourth films. I saw one and two and the second one left a bad taste in my mouth. So it took me a while to give this movie a chance. The premise is pretty basic. Fast cars being used to either steal faster cars or money. In this case its both. It takes place in Brazil and I am terribly upset at the lack of hot Brazilian ass. Too many skinny dames running around wearing nothing doesn’t do a thing for me.

Theater Whore: X-Men Origins

I tried for a bit to not see this movie. Had no desire to since just from the trailer I didn’t know if this was part of the previous X-Men films or not. Even after seeing the film I’m still not exactly sure. But what I am sure about is that Magneto is one of the most bad ass characters to ever exist and if you don’t believe it, here’s a coin for you! 

The film starts with a flashback of a young Magneto being separated from his family during the Holocaust. Later he is held captive by Kevin Bacon (Every Movie Ever) as Sebastian Shaw. He wants to have young Erik Lehnsherr move a Nazi coin to show his powers. Erik tries and cant. They bring his mom in and Shaw tells him to move the coin in three seconds or his mom gets pumped full of lead. Erik still cant so, bye-bye, mommy! Erik loses his shit and everything metal gets crunched and he kills two guards in the process.
