Optimus Prime Goes First

We were driving along, and came up along a ‘notorious’ (to us, anyway) spot where folks merging onto the highway have a yield sign, but virtually never actually yield. They just drive straight onto the road regardless of the traffic coming straight at them. It was already obvious that the four vehicles about to pull on had no intention of slowing down, much less yielding, and we’d hit the last one if we didn’t take that into account. Well, as anyone who understands the principles of defensive driving knows, it’s better to be alive and unharmed than right, so my husband slowed down accordingly. The last of the four cars pulled out in front of us, and we noticed the Transformers symbol stickers on the bumper, essentially Optimus Prime’s face:

To which my husband noted, “Well then, Optimus Prime can go first!”

I mean, would you get into a ruckus with Optimus Prime??


While perusing SF Signal this morning I discovered a link to Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, and watched the trailer:

Teaser from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog on Vimeo.

This is apparently the brain-child of Joss Whedon, put together during the writers’ strike. If you’ve ever enjoyed anything he’s ever done, then You. Must. Watch.

ACT ONE (Wheee!) will go up Tuesday July 15th.

ACT TWO (OMG!) will go up Thursday July 17th.

ACT THREE (Denouement!) will go up Saturday July 19th.

All acts will stay up until midnight Sunday July 20th. Then they will vanish into the night, like a phantom (but not THE Phantom – that’s still playing. Like, everywhere.)


Now, finally, the link to today’s review: Susan Strohmeyer’s hysterical The Sleeping Beauty Proposal.

    Yes, Transformers should always get the right of way. Even if their human drivers are morons.

  2. heather says:

    Absolutely. And let’s hope Optimus picks a better human next time, eh?

  3. Aaron says:

    So what you’re saying is that you made way for Optimus Prime out of fear, rather than respect. I always knew you were evil. 😉

    On a random note… How can you call yourself a gamer and have no comments on the Diablo 3 announcement?

  4. heather says:

    Evil? Me? Never!!

    But what could I possibly have to say about D3 after reading this? I mean, they kinda said it all…

  5. Danny Beard says:

    LMAO. You have to let him go first. If not he will transform and crush you. LAMO 🙂

    Anyways, I really liked that trailer for Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. I’m definitely going to keep an eye out for that. It looks like its going to be hilarious. Thanks for the trailer. Never heard about that till now.

    Enjoying the blog, keep up the good work.
