Friday Roundy Uppy: Transforming it up in Transformer Town

Friday means two things: The return of the weekend which is kind of irrelevant when you’re unemployed and your weekly Friday Roundy Uppy. I bet you’re excited, right?

Item: I’m going to see Transformers tonight. This is the first time in my life I was wishing I was going to see a romantic comedy instead of a movie based on a toy.

Item: Remember that Watchman director’s cut that was promised to appear in theaters? Well it’s showing up in four cities for one whole week. Yeah, I can’t help but think that if Watchmen would have been a lot bigger hit that the re-release would have been a lot bigger than this. Frankly, I don’t need to see it in a theater ever again. Just get me a Blu-Ray and I’m fine.

Item: I mentioned this on Twitter, but I watched a dinosaur show that was so boring that I had to change the channel. How is that even possible? I mean, you’re dealing with one of the most awesome subjects on Earth. How can you fuck that up?

Item: Babette found me a Captain Marvel from the DC Universe Classics line at Wal-Mart yesterday. I can’t believe she found one in the wild, but I can believe she picked it up, because she’s awesome like that. I now really, really have to find her an Artemis.

Item: Running my own little toy store is fun, but I wish I had more sales. I’m going to blame the economy. I’m also going to blame the state of Wisconsin for their slow ass response on the seller’s permit. Seriously, where is it?

Item: K-Mart is labeling itself as the Transformers headquarters, whatever that means. For me, it meant getting a cool Transformers T-shirt featuring the old school Transformers on it for six bucks. Perhaps you should check out your nearest K-Mart… if you have on around.
