A while back Dohopoki posted two blogs that made me laugh,one was Things that start with T and the other was Things that start with E. So being the creative writer that I am I decided to totally steal his idea, thanks Doho! So here are my Things that start with M
Meerkat Manor: I so did not want to like this show when I first saw it. I tried my best to not get roped in but failed miserably. If you’ve never seen the show it follows a clan of Meerkats called the Whiskers and their struggle to survive in the Kalahari desert. If the only meerkat you’ve seen is Timon from The Lion King then you haven’t seen a meerkat at all. These little critters are adorable and you really find yourself getting attached to them, or at least I did.
Mega Man: The Blue Bomber himself! I love the MegaMan games, or at least the older ones anyway. I can’t tell you how many hours I spent playing the first one when I was younger. I even got into a fight over it, it was a weekend rental that my cousin and I had to share, I told him he could play after my game was over. Well the particular level I was playing at that time (I think it was Gutsman) had an extra life fairly early on in the stage so I was basically playing a never ending game. Well Jerry (my cousin) didn’t like this and decided to turn off my game mid-level. Needless to say I was not amused and proceeded to beat the snot out of him. I wasn’t allowed to rent MegaMan for a while after that, I never could figure out why. 😉
MST3K: I freaking love this show! It combines two of my loves, bad movies and sci-fi, what more could you ask for? About a week or so ago someone on X-E (I believe it was Squee4242) posted a link to this site that lists all the MST3K episodes available on YouTube and Google Video. If your familiar with MST3K and haven’t seen Manos: The Hands of Fate (another M! Wo0t!) you should check it out, it’s so bad it’s good.
The Mist: Evidently this is one of those love ’em or hate ’em movies. I read the short story when I was in high school and it was one of my fav’s so of course I loved the movie. I haven’t picked it up on DVD yet but from what I hear the black and white version is even creepier than the color version.
Mario Kart: I love this series of games. From the very first all the way thru Mario Kart DS (I don’t have a Wii yet so I can’t give an opinion on that one) this is one game that I never get tired of playing. And Battle mode is even more fun after a few drinks….or so I’ve heard.
Michigan: My home state, I don’t miss living there but I miss the Lake in the summer time and Henry’s cheeseburgers on the beach. Henry’s is a local legend where I’m from, supposedly someone accused the owner of using kangaroo meat of all things in his hamburgers and he offered a reward to anyone who could prove he used anything but beef. They’re greasy, messy and oh so delicious! I make it a point to stop there whenever I go back to visit.
There are a lot of other M things I could write about but it’s late and I’m tired so I’m gonna call it a night.
Ok…..just because it’s on right now I have to add one more M.
ManBearPig: If you haven’t seen this episode of South Park, try finding it on YouTube. It’s…..it’s……well here read this and see for yourself.
