"Muscle March"

...?

I'm very confused.

David

“I’m very confused.”

I think the idea is someone steals the precious protein supplement and the bodybuilders (and polar bear) have to pursue the thief. This involves flexing in certain ways in order to fit through the holes made by the thief in various walls and obstacles. It’s perhaps a little, er, clearer in this gameplay clip:

The purpose of the penguins and relentless buttock jiggling isn’t entirely obvious.

The drawings are amazing.

Iron Man but no Tron trailer?? For shame!

David

I was never a big Tron fan. Though I quite like this version...

Love the pencil drawings.

btw the secret cities of Yemen link isn't working.

David

Pam,

For some reason the original page seems to have been removed overnight. I’ve fixed the link with a page that has similar content.

Note the last photo.

Wow! Thanks.

I thought Shatner was pretty good. Of course, it's Friday and I'm sick of everybody's crap too, so hey, I might be a bit biased.

As for Tron, soundtrack by Journey, who's "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'" I will be enduring for eternity upon arrival in my penultimate private hell (though I should get some credit for time served, 1979-198x)...Damn glass is empty again...Mr. Jameson!

The video quality is atrocious, but if you really want to see Shatner go off, watch him cost a contestant $20,000:

I thought Shatner was out standing in that bit of audio. The engineer was such a wimp that I had no sympathy for him. Normal rules of decorum simply aren't applicable to Shatner.

More of from arguably the greatest Canadian ever.

Don’t forget March 22 is International Talk Like William Shatner Day.

And for those who like their Shatner hardcore...

The Soviet light/kitsch entertainment flick has a site of its own:

Cristoph Waltz has already a parody of this, about his first career success:

Are you sure http://trololololololololololo.com/ isn't Paul Whitehouse in an excellent disguise?

P.S. Loved the At-At Teddy Bears in Cycles.
