James Cameron's pet project for 10 or so odd years that, similar to Zepplin's pet project called the 'Hindenburg' might have gotten off, but utterly failed to deliver. The premise is a Dances with wolves like atmosphere, were the Army is now a corporate mercenary force sent out to protect galactic miners from the indigenous aliens that inhabit the mined planet of Pandora. A diplomatic approach is conceived where a chosen few will be mentally connected to living Human-Alien hybrids and take on their bodies, hence the title of Avatar. Once these people are avatars, they will go into the forest and gain the trust of the native Na'vi, tall slender, and blue aliens that need to be relocated so the Company can mine their area for a precious element called Unobtainium. Trouble brews and drama grows, money is spent, and this IS ONE OF THOSE MOVIES YOU CAN ONLY SEE AND ENJOY IN THEATERS.....sadly you can't watch it at home for a dollar and be disappointed.
Jack: " Jane! Did you see Avatar"
Jane: "Yes Jack, I did."
Jack: "didn't you just love that cool 3D and the special effects?
Jane: " Jack, quite frankly, I did not. I thought the entire film was a giant waste of $13.50 and 2 and half hours. James Cameron cannot write for shit, cannot create decent characters, cannot cast properly, and has way to much fuckin' money in his back pocket. How you could like it, you little waste of jizz, is way beyond my comprehension."
Jack: "But, but, the effects..... the 3D.......the sexy blue chick....."
A term that now has also come to refer to the entertainment industry's attempt at making ethnic characters more appealing to the white, money-spending masses by making exotic characters less ethnic and more "white."
Isn't Chun Li supposed to be 100% Chinese? Why did Hollywood totally whitewash her and cast a half-asian actress to play her in that horrible new Street Fighter movie??
Thanks to commercial whitewashing, every token "black" girl on tv has become a light skinned black girl. This does not bode well for dark skinned black actresses.
A large island in the middle of the sea, at the furthest point from and land on Earth. This island is constructed from all debris that the world has cast away, a record of all man's history on earth, since that fateful day thousands of years ago when a Neanderthal cast that first crisp packet into the sea. The Republic of Plastic Beach as a governed nation was founded by Murdoc Niccals, Bassist of 'Gorillaz' Whilst Scouring the oceans with a helicopter from their 'El Mañana' Video. He promptly brought singer 2D, and his own creation, a cyborg Noodle, constructed from bits of Noodle's skin, DNA and a drumming machine, to the island whilst drummer Russel Hobbs swam toward the island under his own power. As the founder of Plastic Beach, Murdoc made himself the sole overlord of the island.more...
Some of the contents of the island are;
bits of planes, broken ships, dinosaur bones, telephone boxes, half a chariot, a couple of Viking boats, a bit of an old Sinclair C5, the ruins of the Great Library of Alexandria, the wreckage of the Hindenburg, some old N.A.S.A Space rockets, a Sphinx, some spears, bits of the Titanic, an unexploded bomb jammed into the ground, broken bottles, old tyres, electrical cack and all manner of dumped and damaged goods are held together by the thick sticky gloop of jettisoned tar and oil slick from a million untold disasters.
Otherwise known as Point Nemo, The Pacific pole of inaccessibility, The Republic of Plastic Beach.
Shorthand way of saying casket. The Raekwon/Wu-collective collab song 'Guillotine(Swordz), off of 'Only Built 4 Cuban Linx' contains the following line by Inspektah Deck: 'Poisonous paragraphs, smash ya phonograph
in half, it be the Inspectah Deck on the warpath,1st class leavin mics with a cast' is often misinterpreted as reading 'leaving mics in a cas'. Subsequent to the track's release, the term was popularized amongst the underground, when in fact it didn't exist at the outset. Thus proving hip-hop vernacular's spontaneous generation theory.
Leave in a cas, I'm heavin' your ass, over my shoulder like a newlywed, gonna learn how it feels like to-be-dead
Soul eater is the best anime I've ever seen, it's also a manga
About half the cast can turn into weapons, and the rest are miesters, Kishin and witches. The plot revolves around the DWMA, defensive weapons and miesters academy or something like that. The headmaster/ruler of the DWMA is Lord death(or shinigami) he is a wacky grim reaper who can perform the "reaper chop" where he dents your skull with a gigantic glove
the main characters are Maka and her weapon, Soul who can turn into a battle scythe,
Death the kid, the awesome symmetry-obsessed son of Shinigami, with Liz and Patty, twin pistols,
Blackstar, the "ninja assassin who will transcend god" and Tsubaki, the easy-going enchanted sword of Blackstar
as well as a whole bunch of bad guys! you have to watch it to appreciate it. (but beware of "legend of the holy sword" it gets obnoxious)
Blackstar: can we still be friends?
Soul: Of course! we'll always be friends!
Blackstar: Oh, Soul!
Blackstar: oh soul!
(this repeats a few more times)
Maka: they need professional help
(kid has basically exploded them)
Kid: oops, I'm sorry. My finger slipped
The emergency room is literally the worst place to be not because of the fact that you just crushed your entire hand and its gushing blood while a woman with a cold is rushed into a room with 3 Residents and an ER Doc but because you will literally see the scum of america.Usually you'll see a fat chick nursing a baby in clothes that really should have been left at home/never scene in public with, some random hobo in smelly shitty clothes, shanqiqi who is either bitching about her boyfriend on the phone or making up a story as to how there child "fell down the stairs" and managed to get a spiral fracture, crying baby that probably makes you want to go postal, tough lumbar jack like dude with like some insane injury just sitting there, drug seekers who "lost there MS Contin" and seam to do so on a regular basis or maybe its the guy who "accidentally spilled his Opana ER down a sour pipe", etc.more...
After waiting 7 and a half hours in front of a bunch of chuckle heads looking to score some dilaudid you get in and the doctor usually looks at you like your an alien. If its a broken limb you usually get a cast and a bottle of Vicodin. If you have some mysterious ailment you usually have 4 residents scratching there head while some half retarded physicians assistant who's "scene it all" explains that you just have a tummy ache. But this is not before they take a bunch of your blood, do random tests and give you enough radiation from the CT scan,MRI,Xray to give a child terminal cancer.
-The plural form of Pozzo, an Italian word meaning a well.
-A surname or last-name meaning 'one who lived by a well'.
