The End of Reading


I remember seeing James Patterson doing ads for his  books were he spoke directly to the camera from back when he was younger and bearded, the ads were not great, but they were dignified and made his books seem like a bit of a big event, as far as disposable fiction goes.

Whoever convinced him to put on the world's cheapest pirate costume and stand in front of the same background from my high school yearbook photo, was, shall we say... ill-advised.

I don't know which version of this ad is worse, the one of Patterson embarrassing himself, or this one of the world's worst child actor delivering the same bad puns.


Its sad seeing Patterson slum it, but at least he is able to give this terrible ad the tone it needs. This kid is way too damn sincere and excited about yelling this stupid puns at my face.

(PS I came across this ad in the form of the one with the kid, and saw it while watching an episode of the late 80's television series Murder, She Wrote on The Hallmark Channel, so I am not sure who told Hachette publishing that it was a good idea to air an ad for a book aimed at kids, which was staring a kid and clearly marketed towards kids at 1 in the morning on a channel that is only watched by people over 80 years old during the day, and is only watched by me at night, but Hachette is the same compnay who decided to stop publication of the greatest movie magazine of all time, Premiere, so none of these events are really surprising.

It has been a while since I post anything on this blog on 9/11. I don't want to harp on a national tragic on my silly website where I talk about the Budweiser frogs, so I have tended to just not post.

But I have an episode of my podcast which I published without realizing the date, so if I'm gonna put anything on this page on 9/11 it seems like I should acknowledge the date first.

As I've said on here in the past, former City Paper Editor Duane Swierczynski wrote a great piece back in 2007 about his young son trying to understand 9/11 in the context of the World Trade Center appearing in the original superman film.

Read that article here.

I will be get back to being silly in the next post.

Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, William Fichtner

Some Random Thoughts on Hockey

George Parros's facial expression upon realizing he plays for the Florida Panthers 

While I think it is really awesome when a player like Mario Lemieux is able to play for one team his whole career,* It never really bothers me when teams and players have to part ways. Whether it is simply a matter of money, or it is the player hoping they can finally win a cup and signing with what they see as a more competitive team,** or a team trading a player they no longer see as part of their plan to win the cup .***

Hockey is something I watch for fun, but to the people involved with it, it is their job. Good GMs have to build a team based on their ability to win games, not based on who the fans want to see on the ice, so they have to make trades or choice not to resign popular veteran free agents if they do not see them as being part their plan for the team.

In terms of players leaving for greener pastures: let's say you have a favorite bar that you go to a few times a month, and their is a bartender their who is great with the customers, then one day you show up and find out he got a better job offer at a different bar. If he comes back to visit the first bar a few months later are you gonna paint up signs telling him he sucks now, or boo him when he walks in the door? I really hope not.

Hockey players will have, in the best case scenario, until they are in their early 40's to earn money playing hockey, so it is understandable to me that they when they are up for free agency they would choose to sign with teams that will either 1. pay them the most 2. will give them the best shot at whatever their non-monetary goal is (winning the Stanley Cup, playing for their hometown team, sleeping with Carrie Underwood).




Footnote(s):
 *And I think someone like Lemieux is just a total class act to have allowed the 'guins to defer a huge chunk of his salary to prevent them from running the fuck out of money, rather then going to another team, I get that this is very very are behavior not just in hockey or sport, but almost anywhere. (sohttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mario_Lemieux#1997.E2.80.932000:_Post-retirementurce)

**As just happened with the Ottawa senators long time captain Daniel Alfredsson.

***As the Flyers seem to do with any player I have ever heard of on their team pretty much every other season


This article from Puck Daddy about fans seeing Alfredsson as a bad guy got me thinking and cause me to write this post.

Podcast Episode 107


Thor's 107: The Shadow in: The Man Made of Man-made Knifes Part 1



We here at Thor's occasionally write parodies of the old Orson Welles radio detective show "The Shadow" and act them out.

Here is one such parody.

He is a list of folks from the normal hour of thunder pantheon and the character they play (in case you are courious):
Thor Does the voice of the Narrator and Stebbins,
Baldr does the voice of The Shadow/ Lamont Cranston,
Freyja does the voice of Gwen Deebly,
Officer Tiger does the voice of Officer Tiger.
Hell v.1 (from the muppets episode) does the sound effects and the voice of Bubbles

email hourofthunder (at) gmail.com if you want a copy of the script so you can follow along.









Thor's 107.5: Outtakes from "The Man Made of Man-made Knifes Part 1"
















I'm not sure how interested people are in listening to six minutes of outtakes, but I thought these were funny, so I figured I would publish them incase people were interested. The outtakes go in chronological order from beginning to end of episode.

Al Pacino Sky Fiber Ad




Here is a british ad for a fiber optic internet service starring Scarface himself, Al Pacino.

Sky Fibre - Al Pacino from Finish on Vimeo.


Apparently in England Al Pacino's public persona is pretty much interchangeable with Charlie Sheen. Though I like this ad much better then the similarly themed, eccentric celebrity uses our product in his mansion ad Sheen did in the U.S. for Fiat

AC Slater is seducing you with his torso poems

This is an underwear ad, photographed instore at K-Mart.  Mario Lopez is famous for "saved by the bell" and for somehow looking younger every year since looking too old to play a high schooler in saved by the bell 20 years ago.
Apparently he has parlayed that fame into a line of underwear, which is uncreatively called MaLo, and the ads for which feature the confusing slogan "My heart is the only thing that is made of stone" scrawled across his rippling abs with sharpie.
This ad is over serious and laughable and Lopez looks so unnatural not smiling. However, I do have to commend the font choice for the above message, it looking like hastily scrawled handwriting, but is just the right amount of distressed so it doesn't become distracting, I think that font would be very effective in a different context.

Podcast Episode 100

We made it! 100 Episodes of this nonsense! Hell Yeah!
Thor's Hour of Thunder

Thor's ONE HUNDREDTH EPISODE! 

We realize about 12 minutes into this episode that we have been talking long enough that we have now reached episode 100. We talk a lot about 90's music in this episode.

More Nu Metal, Jonathan Davis, Korn, limp bizkit, Carson Daily, The Pixies, Total Request Live, Jimmy Fallon, Ska, Less Then Jake, Street Light Manifesto, Ramstein, Neil Gaiman, Dresden Dolls, Amanda Palmer, Coin Operated Boy, Brian Viglione, Linkin Park.

Also we talked about how matt smith is stepping down as doctor who and how there will be a 50th anniversary special in the fall back in episode 98, but I forgot to mention it then.

I had 99 luftballons for the ending music on the previous episode since it was episode 99, and I just listened to that episode and discovered i said i would end it with that new linkin park track that Njord was suprised he liked, and forgot. so here is the music video for that song if you want to hear what it sounds like: it is called "Burn It Down" 


Podcast Episodes 98 and 99

Thor's Hour of Thunder

Thor's 98: The Two Ingredient Margarita.

Thor, Hiemdale, Bjork, and Njord talk about:

After Earth, Now You See Me, Morgan Freeman, Will Smith, Jaden Smith, M. Night shyamalan, Michael Cera, Youth in Revolt, Arrested Development, Hipster Moustaches, Rollie FIngers, The Jersey Shore and much more.

Also Shaquille O'Neal has a new line of sodas made by the Arizona Ice Tea company, called "Soda Shaq" and we are pretty damn excited about that, as you can see from this week's cover photo.

Song at the end of the episode this week is called "98 years" by the Cheatin' Hearts, Because this is episode 98. Though "98" never comes up in the song's actual lyrics, just the title, but whatever, it is catchy.







Thor's 99: Njord drinks a Piña Colada


We talk Star Trek Into Darkness's under performing at the Box Office. The Goods: Live Hard Sell Hard, Rob Riggle, Kathryn Hahn, Jeremy Piven, Paul Rudd, Ving Rhames, michael clarke duncan.

Also as advertised Njord mixes and consumes a Piña Colada live on air.

Samsung Galaxy 4 is Watching You.

Exactly Like the Samsung Galaxy 4 



Below is a very clever advertisement for a Swiss Mobile phone company called Swisscom, which uses the Samsung Galaxy 4's ability to tell if you are looking at the phone to hold a staring contest  between phone and man.

Anyone who can look at the phone for 60 minutes wins a Galaxy 4, but the folks at Swisscom brought in some increasingly ridiculous distractions as it gets closer to 60 minutes

James Doohan (Scotty from Star Trek) in his
World War II uniform

We talk the new star trek, and also the next generation movies, Red Letter Media, Saturday Night life, and the departure from that program by Bill Hader and jason sudeikis.

song at end via: 

This week's cover photo via: 







Thor 93: Star Trek into Darkness II: The Wrath of Kahn


We discuss whether a big budgets of the two new star trek movies prevents the films from being as clever and the Gene Roddenberry created television series, the difference between marketing a movie to appeal to all ages and actually scripting it to appeal to the lowest common denominator . Alice Eve's underwear scene, the controversy surrounding it, JJ Abrams' marketing strategy. Cloverfield, Super 8, Lost, Damon Lindelof, good screen writing.

And the dedication of the film to "post 9/11 veterans" and the very particular phrasing of that dedication.

(some of this stuff might actually be in episode 92 instead of 93, I can't remember.

This week's photo is James Doohan, Scotty from the original Star Trek in uniform during his service in World War 2. Doohan was part of the invasion of Normandy at Juno Beach. (I don't know who the woman in the photo is with him, presumedly his mother or grandmother)






Podcast Episode 91

Thor's 91: The Great Gatsby


Thor, Njord, Vidar, Bjork, new god Officer Tiger, and Hiemdale (whose microphone craps out almost immediate) talk the new film The Great Gatsby.

Jay-Z, Baz Luhrmann, Leonardo Dicaprio, Robert Redford, Nick Caraway, Tobe Maguire, Soundtrack, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, isla Fisher, Joel Edgerton looks like old timey conan o'brien.

Also when I was discussion this movie I forgot to mention elizabeth debicki did a great job as Jordan Baker. I wish they hadn't cut out so much of her character from the book. She would have done a great job with that conversation with nick carraway about how a bad driver doesn't get into trouble until the meet another bad driver.

Podcast Episodes 86 and 86

Thor's Hour of Thunder


Episodes 85 & 86


Episode 85: Shaq Fu

Thor, Baldr, Hiemdale, and new god Bjork discuss the 1983 album sung entirely by NASCAR drivers "Stock Car Racing's Entertainers of the Year". Shaq's music career, video game career, and career as a Genie. Also Shaq in the comic book movie Steel, the Superman/ DC comics character Steel.

The upcoming super man film, Man of Steel, including the latest trailer featuring General Zod.

Thor reviews the new Ryan Gosling Bradly Cooper film "The Place Beyond the Pines." Thor also reviews the first two episodes of the new Netflix Streaming series, "Hemlock Grove"



Episode 86: Kazaam

I found out since recording that the kid in Kazaam is the same actor who played Weevil on the TV show Veronica Mars (His name is Francis Capra, no relation to the 1930's director Francis Capra.) 

That just blew my mind so much that I am having trouble writing this description. I think we talk about super heros, and Shaq some more. We also talk about Reese Witherspoon's hilarious run in with Georgia's State Police. 

I saw a kid walking down the street in Philly with a Game Genie shirt on the other day, remember that "Game Genie" add on for Nintendo? It allowed you to start at any level, and had that awesome commercial ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xi4m2qnZaY ) Hey, game Genie, Shaq was a Genie in Kazaam, and then a video game in Shaq Fu. The game Genie would have been a much better product if it allowed you to add Shaq as Kazaam as a playable character to all your video games. 

Man, Kid from Kazaam grew up to be Weevil. How crazy is that?
