GTA IV at Midnight – See You All Later

GTA 4 Special Edition with Vaseline

The Grand Theft Auto IV (GTA 4) video game comes out for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 tonight at midnight.  I was one of the suckers lucky ones that was able to reserve the special edition versions for the 360 at Best Buy for only $90 (pictured above – Vaseline not included).  I am admittedly happy and yet still sad because I will not see all of you.  I will likely see less of Call of Duty 4, and Halo 3 may not even know me anymore. (here we go again)

I am hoping the Xbox Live service can hang tough this time.  If it does, the game that IGN rated a 10, will be a slam-dunk for the 360 over the PS3 just for the online play.

Spanky ignore your initial thoughts and come to the darkside, make the purchase!

Christopher Walken’s Many Looks Discussed By IGN

Christopher Walken Cowbell SNL

Christopher Walken is a favorite here, maybe more of an icon really. Just about all of the roles he has played has been cash for one reason or another. IGN wrote a piece on the different looks he has had over the years on film which had me thinking back to some of my favorites of him. Just the other day I suggested he take over as the new Freddy Krueger in the upcoming remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Of course we completely dig the “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) skits including the infamous “more cowbell” sketch with Will Farrell and crew. Then him shoving a watch up his ass in Pulp Fiction as Captain Koons, Clem in Joe Dirt, Feng in Balls of Fury, Bobby Cahn in Wayne’s World 2, and the dad in Wedding Crashers all make us laugh.

He was in Tim Burton movies Batman Returns and Sleepy Hollow. He was in Quentin Tarantino’s True Romance. He was in a James Bond movie. He was in classics like The Deer Hunter and Annie Hall. He was in music videos for Madonna and Fat Boy Slim. He was creepy sitting on chairbacks in “The Prophecy” series too. If I have to settle on my favorite performance of his, it may have to be him as Frank White in the King of New York or as Carlo Bartolucci in Suicide Kings.

So many to choose from… oh and a shout out to the picture source: Battle Against Bald via Google search.
