Area 88 Parodies: Coffee (Take 2)
Area 88 Parodies: Coffee (Take 2)
In the cafeteria, Shin is seen sitting down in a table by himself enjoying a cup of coffee. He takes a slurp. Suddenly, he notices Goh Mutsugi walking buy. He takes his seat next to him. Shin eye-balls him coldly. But then he ignores him.
Goh: Hey, Shin.
Shin doesn’t answer.
Goh: Well sheesh. Nice to see you too, asshole.
Shin doesn’t answer.
Goh: Are you really going back home, Shin?
Shin looks at Goh.
Shin: Where did you hear that?
Goh: Oldman McCoy.
Shin slurps his coffee.
Goh: Well? Are you?
Shin: Not yet…
Goh: After one more then?... Can you ever be free?
Shin slams his coffee on the table.
Shin: (annoyed) That’s none of your business…
Goh: I was just asking a simple question. You could at least answer yes or no.
Suddenly, Goh gasps a few breaths.
Goh: (gasp, gasp, gasp) ACHOO!!!
Goh sneezes on Shin, and the resultant wind from his mouth causes the coffee to splatter on Shin’s face.
Goh: Excuse me...
Shin: AAAHH

Edge of Forever (Lyrics)
On the road to the edge of forever
Where good and evil come together
Follow the sun to where the shadows burn
Heaven and hell each take their turn
On the road to the edge of forever
Light and dark exchange fists with me
On the rim of eternity
Life and death have their hands on the switch
Who is what?
Which is which?
Day and night turn inside out
And in the chaos the demons shout
On the road to the edge of forever
Where good and evil come together
Follow the sun to where the shadows burn
Heaven and hell each take their turn
On the road to the edge of forever....

Return of Optimus Prime (Alternate Ending)
(Disclaimer Note: The following is a re-imagining of how I would have wrote the conclusion to "The Return of Optimus Prime", which was the last episode of season 3 of the original cartoon. I felt that the two scientists who were responsible for the outbreak got off WAY too easy. And they deserved worse. So this is how I would have written this episode if I were behind the wheel.)
After the Hate Plague had been cured by the Matrix of Leadership, thanks to Optimus Prime, the Autobots, Decepticons, and humans are gathered together, where the scientists give their most sincere apologies for causing the outbreak.
Dr. Morgan: I can't say what I'm feeling. I'm... So terribly sorry...
Dr. Swafford: We had no right to do what we did with the spores. And for what we thought and believed of you... We... I deeply apologize...
Optimus: I think I will have my two human advocates answer that for you.
Spike and Daniel appear before Morgan and Swafford, and punch them both square in the faces, knocking

In the 80s and 90s, I used to watch a variety of movies and cartoons, both popular and obscure. And In the early 90s I saw shows like X-Men, Dog City, Tom and Jerry Kids, Mighty Max, Tales from the Crypt Keeper (which was a watered down cartoon version of Tales from the Crypt) Beavis and Butthead, The Simpsons, and some obscure shows like Widget the World Watcher, Dinky Di's (which I reviewed), and Stunt Dawgs. And I was no stranger to certain movies that came out around those times. Like Total Recall, Home Alone, Batman Returns, Terminator 2, I could go on and on. And recently I reviewed Disney's White Fang, which I still hold dear to my heart after many years later. But there is one film which I vaguely remember from my childhood. And much like with the martial arts movie which I talked about previously, I never caught the name of this movie. But I do have faint memories about it. I'll get the gist of it out of the way before I start talking about it.

Again, I don't know the name of this movie or how old it is. All I remember is that I saw it one time during my early childhood on a very specific night, and I never saw it again since then. I don't remember exactly what year it was. But it was somewhere in between 1992 and 1993 when I saw this movie. Or at least it was somewhere around that time. In recent years, I tried looking for this movie on the internet, but so far there's nothing on it. The story revolved around an middle aged man who's name escapes me at the time. And he was sent by a rescue team I think to find a certain group of people. The setting was in a snowy wilderness, akin to Alaska or Canada. But I don't know exactly where this movie took place in because I forgot. All I know is that the man gets lost in a snowy wilderness where all kinds of dangers are lurking. And he has to fend for himself or die trying. So essentially, this movie is your typical survival movie where the main protagonist has to fight for his life, feed off the land (even if it means drinking water from the river and eating the flesh of other animals) and somehow get back to civilization. The man hunts for food and fends for himself by fighting off bears and wolves all by himself. Now, if anybody could do that in real life, I congratulate them. He drinks water from the river to hydrate himself, and he sleeps in caves during the night. Or at least in areas that are safe and warm. In the midst of his journey, he is attacked by a wolf. The man fights back and injures the wolf. But then he takes pity on him. So he nurses the wolf back to health, and names him "Old Timer". The wolf is at first confused by the man's kindness. But after sharing some food with him from the kills he made (be it deer, elks, or some other hooved animal), the two soon become friends, and journey through the vast wilderness together, hunting for whatever food they can find to survive. The man and Old-Timer develop a strong bond with each other, and they have many close calls throughout the film.

So as you can imagine, this story is kind of similar to "White Fang" or "Call of the Wild" because its about a man who befriends a wild wolf. But this is a completely different story unrelated to either. One part I remember quite well besides the part where the man and Old-Timer first meet and later become friends is this one scene where the man comes across two rams (sheep with curved horns on their heads) who are battling each other. The man then goes in pursuit of a lone ram as Old-Timer stands and watches. The man tackles and struggles with the ram, grabbing at its horns as it tries to ram him. But the man has such a strong grip on the ram's horns. And eventually, he breaks its neck and kills it. And after that, he and Old-Timer have themselves a good supply of food for the night. The rest of the movie escapes me. But I do remember the film's ending. Towards the end, the man and Old-Timer find a rescue team who were sent to pick him up at a randevu point. And the man grasps this opportunity to go back home to civilization. But unfortunately, he can't take Old-Timer with him because the wild is his home where he belongs. And so the man bids farewell to Old-Timer by hugging him dearly before the two go their separate ways. After that, Old-Timer then runs off into the snowy wilderness (and probably to reunite with his pack), and the man is then taken in by the rescue team as they take off in their helicopter. And that's the end of the movie. Again, its hard to believe I still remember this even though so many years have gone by since then. I guess even now, certain memories never truly fade away however vague and distant they are. But then again, I always did have a vivid memory span even as a child. And like with the martial arts movie, this only just now resurfaced in my head. So I thought I'd share it with all my friends and watchers here.

Hey, this is MDTartist83.

Today I thought I'd do something different from the usual. In most of my entries, I go in great detail when talking about whatever subjects come to mind. Be it something I remember fondly from my childhood or just random old memories that get locked up inside my head until I put them down on paper or in a word document. But while I still do cherish my past to a degree, recreational stuff and stuff relating to pop-culture is not the only thing that's on my mind. Truth be told, part of my psyche is shaped by things that have happened in the world around us. Be it the Persian Gulf War, September 11th, or even the recent nuclear disaster that happened in Fukushima, Japan in 2011. Well anyway, there are vague memories I have which only I seem to remember, which most people around me have forgotten about. And for this entry, I'm going to go over things I remember about 1994.

1993 was officially the last year I lived in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. It had been a decade since I came into the world, and there were still so many things to explore and opportunities to grasp. But unfortunately, we had to move from Arabia to the United States because I did a poor job in school, and my parents were not too pleased with my poor grades and performance. Even the teachers were convinced that there was no hope for me. So instead of moving onto the next school that was recommended for me in Dhahran, I went to school here in the United States. And so by the summer 1994 (June to be exact), I came to the state of Texas. And I volunteered for several different schools around the state. But I was rejected from each of those schools for a variety of reasons. Mainly due to certain behavioral issues I had, and part of it was because some of the students treated me like garbage, or they got on my case about certain things that were none of their goddamn business. But I was in luck, as one day I was accepted into a campus known as Clifford School. And I did okay in this school at first. But things only got worse as time went on. And I'll go into that another time. Now, how I made it this far in life is nothing short of a miracle. Because I feel that if it wasn't for the grace of God or just dumb luck, I wouldn't have gotten this far otherwise. They say luck doesn't exists. But I say that's bullshit. Some people are lucky they can even graduate from school at all. While others are gifted geniuses who are destined for success. I however am the former. I was only lucky. But even luck can only take you so far in life.

Anyway, the house which we live in had just recently been constructed. And as such, it was ripe for our needs, and it had a fresh scent which I still remember quite well despite the length of time that has elapsed. But as the years drifted by, that scent had disappeared due to the house's advancing age. One of my most fond memories of 1994 when I first came here was watching movies with my mother at home. And back in those days we saw a variety of movies. Including Old Yeller, which as we all know was a touching story with a sad ending. And we even saw other movies like "Death Becomes Her" (released in 1992), "The Good Son" (released in 1993), and even old Disney classics like "Aladdin" (1992), "The Little Mermaid" (1989), and "The Brave Little Toaster" (1987). And there was also "Mrs. Doubtfire" (1993), and "Interview with the Vampire" (1994). Now, my mother was NEVER a fan of vampire movies or movies with intense violence and gore. And I respect her preferences. Believe me. Even as I was growing up I respected that she has completely different likes and dislikes from me. But that doesn't stop me and my mother from being good friends most of the times. And later in 1994, we saw "The Lion King" when it just came out in theaters, and I loved it. And believe me when I say that I REALLY DO miss the days when 2D animation was cherished and valued by the industry. But things changed when 1995 came along. That was the year when Toy Story hit theaters. It was a huge success and it changed theatrical animation forever. But some of my most cherished memories of that year was when I played and beat Megaman X, a game which I still have fond memories of, and still hold dear to my heart to this day. In the same year, the Megaman cartoon by Ruby Spears came out. And well, I've already went over that show. But I just thought I'd bring it up because well, despite that I have mixed feelings for the show, it was part of my childhood. So it deserves to be mentioned. In the same year, Gargoyles first aired. And it was a fantastic show. And not only that, but Sonic SatAM had ran its second and unfortunately its last season. For better or for worse however, it was continued by the Archie Comics series, which have now ended in recent years. But the comics had a good run. And that's saying a lot. And of course there was "Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie", although I didn't see that movie until two years later.

Anyway, there is one memory of 1994 which remained in the back of my head for MANY YEARS. One night, when I was watching TV with my mother, we were watching a VERY specific film. But I never caught the name of this movie. This was back when television was not as advanced as it is today with how we have special features like Comcast, Netflix, and stuff like that. Instead, we only had stuff like Pay-Per-View, and Cable TV. And we didn't have special programs that could identify what we were watching by giving us the title the year it came out. So anyway, back to the subject at hand. This movie that I saw with my mother is a VERY RARE film because it was made in Hong Kong I think. I don't know how old it is. But it was a martial arts movie of sorts. Because you know, Hong Kong is known worldwide for their kung-fu action movies. And there are many other celebrities besides Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and Jet Li, who are all well-known despite Bruce being 20 years dead by the 90s. But again, I never got the name of this movie. And I don't know who any of the actors are. But what I do remember is that it combined realistic martial arts with fantasy martial arts (akin to Street Fighter with how they use ki or chi to execute fantastic moves). And in one part of the film, the main hero's girlfriend is mortally wounded by the main villain, who strikes a pressure point on her with a powered up finger (and no, its nothing sexual or inappropriate, he just strikes her down by striking a certain vital point). This of course enrages the main hero, who seeks to avenge his lover by killing the main bad guy. The girl wasn't dead however, she was just badly injured and had to be cared for in the hospital. But as he goes on his quest for revenge, he gets into a few fights (as to be expected in Chinese kung-fu movies), and ends up taking a beating. And then he gets a taste of the main villain's deadly finger attack as well. While recovering from his injuries, the main hero mopes and sulks about it, saying "I'm a washed up samurai!", while his mentor reassures him and tries to get him out of his state of despair.

And now for the part of the film which I remember the most, when the main hero and the villain go face to face with each other out in the streets. And yes, they fight each other in the streets at night when apparently nobody is there to witness the fight. As you expect, they trade punches and kicks, do all sorts of acrobatic moves, and they end up beating each other senseless. But the good guy manages to gain the upperhand, and he overpowers the bad guy. After beating him senseless, the hero forces him into submission, and interrogates him. Just then, some random guy walks into the scene, turns his attention to the two men, and draws a knife. Although at first I thought it was a gun because well, he was at a distance and it was kind of hard to make out the details. But I could have sworn he drew out a gun from his jacket instead of a knife. Anyway, as the hero further interrogates the villain, the guy with the knife charges, shouting "HOOODAAAHHH!!!" But just before he could do anything, he was shot down by a police officer. Now, when I saw this scene, I cracked up laughing because it was so random and out of place, and the way he shouted "HODAH!!!" was just hilarious! But as I cracked up laughing, my mother easily got annoyed with me, saying "What's so funny?!" I answered while laughing hysterically "He said jodido!" But my mother was soon to correct me, saying "He didn't say jodido! He said Hoda!" I mean the two words sounded similar to me. And I was only 11 years old at the time. So of course I would have made that mistake.

Now, for those of you who don't know, "Jodido" (pronounced "Hoh-Dee-Doh") is a Spanish word. It doesn't have one exact meaning. But, depending on how its used, it can have a variety of profane meanings. In some cases, it can be used to mean exclamatory expressions like "Oh wow!", "Whoa!" or "Holy shit!" or something like that. But "Jodido" can also be used as a name calling. And as my cousins Elmer and Laura pointed out to me, "Jodido" can mean things like "asshole!" or "mother fucker!" So I guess I could say that if the guy had said that, he would have been using those two meanings. Now, the word "jodido" has always been one of my favorite sayings in Spanish because from a stand point, it sounds kind of funny. But of course you don't want to use that word among native Spanish speakers. The first time I heard the word spoken was in the previous year when my mother was doing laundry, and my brother got on her nerves. My mother got so annoyed that she exclaimed "JODIDO!" and walked away. But when she said that, I cracked up laughing because I thought it was funny. Well, that was my 10 year old self laughing. Nowadays I have a better understanding of how certain words in certain languages work. And while they may sound funny to me or to others, knowing how and when to use them in appropriate situations is crucial for anybody.

As for the film, I can't remember if I saw it all the way to the end or not. Its been so long ago now that my memory on it is kind of faint. I only saw the movie once on television, and I never saw it again. But it surprises me on how I still remember it to this day however faint my memories of it are. Again, I never caught the title of the film, and as far as I know, there's no information on it anywhere on the internet. And if there is, I wouldn't know anything about it due to its rarity and obscurity. All I have are just faint memories of that point in time. Memories that survived up to this day. And I thought I'd share it with my friends and watchers here.

Description:

I am a man who lives for art, storytelling, and entertainment. Since my childhood, I've been greatly fascinated by fantasy and make believe, and I've been a fan of many different media franchises, be they popular or obscure. And I have dreams of one day making an impact on pop culture through the things I do. I like to entertain people with stories and ideas, and I explore a variety of different ideas, be they original or from existing franchises. And I also do reviews of various pop-culture media ranging from TV series, video games, movies, and the alike. And I like to share my memories and knowledge with others. I'm also quite keen on Japanese culture. Especially with anime, which has been one of my biggest inspirations for engaging in art since my early childhood years, up to the present day.

Rules That I Live By:

1. Love your friends and family equally, no matter how they treat you.
2. Focus on the things you can do, and what you're capable of.
3. Life is as good as it gets.
4. You only live once in this life, so make the best of it while you can.
5. Nothing is guaranteed in this life except death.
6. Everybody and everything has potential to be something they're not.
7. Respect is given to people who deserve it. But not everybody deserves it.
8. Never resort to physical violence unless you absolutely have to.
9. Don't trust anybody unless you're sure you can trust them.
10. There's a difference between living in the past, and learning from it.
11. The future is never certain. But somethings are foreseeable.
12. The less you expect, the less disappointed you will be at an outcome.
13. It doesn't matter how old something is. It's what you do with it that counts.
14. Always be prepared for the worst. And expect the unexpected.
15. Forgive others not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.
16. Everybody has to dedicate themselves to something.
17. Life is a journey, live it well.
18. Value your history, but always move forward.
19. If you disrespect others, expect to be disrespected back.
20. We never really know what to expect in this life.
21. Some people make an effort to open up and make friends with you, and some people mean you harm. And there are people who are simply neutral, and want nothing to do with you.
22. Our good deeds inspire others to greatness. And our evil deeds serve as a warning to all.
23. We all have our fixations and obsessions. And that's nothing to be ashamed of.

WARNING: If you troll or spam my page with petty insults just for your own personal enjoyment, I will block you without hesitation, and you can go bother someone else. I'm normally a reasonable and tolerant person. But trollish behavior will NOT be tolerated under any circumstances. You've been warned.

One part I remember quite well besides the part where the man and Old-Timer first meet and later become friends is this one scene where the man comes across two rams (sheep with curved horns on their heads) who are battling each other. The man then goes in pursuit of a lone ram as Old-Timer stands and watches. The man tackles and struggles with the ram, grabbing at its horns as it tries to ram him. But the man has such a strong grip on the ram's horns. And eventually, he breaks its neck and kills it. And after that, he and Old-Timer have themselves a good supply of food for the night. The rest of the movie escapes me. But I do remember the film's ending. Towards the end, the man and Old-Timer find a rescue team who were sent to pick him up at a randevu point. And the man grasps this opportunity to go back home to civilization. But unfortunately, he can't take Old-Timer with him because the wild is his home where he belongs. And so the man bids farewell to Old-Timer by hugging him dearly before the two go their separate ways. After that, Old-Timer then runs off into the snowy wilderness (and probably to reunite with his pack), and the man is then taken in by the rescue team as they take off in their helicopter. And that's the end of the movie. Again, its hard to believe I still remember this even though so many years have gone by since then. I guess even now, certain memories never truly fade away however vague and distant they are. But then again, I always did have a vivid memory span even as a child. And like with the martial arts movie, this only just now resurfaced in my head. So I thought I'd share it with all my friends and watchers here.

I also need to fix my computer. I only have limited access to my mother's laptop. And there's not much I can do on it.

Sorry for the note I sent last night. I was under extreme stress. I understand your circumstances. I was just worried since you left last night with getting after me a little.
