T.U.R.T.L.E. Power

Hell yeah. This new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie looks kickass.

I think you can tell a lot about a person and the progression of their life by what Ninja Turtle is their favourite at any given time. When I was very young, I used to be a Michelangelo fan. He was borderline retarded, but liked pizza and provided comic relief. At this point in my life, I hated Raphael. I used to draw detailed pictures of Raphael stabbing himself in the head with one of his sai. However, as I grew older and more angsty, Raphael's angry, sarcastic, anti-hero ways grew on me until he had become my favourite.

Unfortunately, I have lost touch with the Ninja Turtle universe since my Raphael stage. However, if I was still into them, I bet Donatello would be up there. While I still dig Raphael's rebelliousness, Donatello is the nerd of the group (he "does machines", as the unabashed theme song says), and as anybody reading this knows, I am pure nerd.

Oh and Leonardo? He's the obligatory but boring leader with all the responsibility. Meh. Maybe I'll be into him when I'm an old man with grandchildren, who will probably still watch the show and love it when Michelangelo eats the futurey genetically modified pizza and reads comics on his 20th generation iPod.

I have TMNT on my computer desk.

I'm sort of ashamed...but not really.

Can nobody come up with a freakin' orginal movie idea anymore? Must they rehash old stuff ad nauseum? I have four words for you -- SNAKES ON A PLANE BABY! Ok, five.

I always hated Raphael because he was so fucking useless in the original TMNT game for the NES. Seriously, his sais had a range of practically one pixel. He was only useful as a piece of meat (no Brokeback) to absorb punishment from bosses.
