Mega Shark Vs. Mecha Shark! No really!

Yes the Mega Shark is back! The worlds goverment's decided to build a Mega Mecha shark to slug it out the Mega Shark! I honestly thought it was played out with Mega Shark Vs Giant octopus, Mega Shark vs Gateroid ( wich got it's own sequel Gatoroid vs Mega Python no less.) and the unrealeased Mega Shark vs Gigantosaurus.

Use the above link to check out the wild ass trailer!

Godzilla VS The Wolfman is a real movie!

Often spoken about but never really confirmed. Well at G-Fest footage was shown of this amazing labor of love and yes Toho is aware of it and are allowing it to be finished they even provided an old Godzilla suit and props for it! The film isn't finished yet as it is done when time money and crew all converge in a perfect storm. Here are some pics of this monster-piece in the making!

Now if I could finially see Son of Tor(it was screened at one the early G-Fests) that feature's Godzilla slugging it out with Ymir...sigh....

Long time no see, sorry about that.

Been a wild year for me. Liebig still way to egotistical and pissed at me and doing his best to sink by forum bashing every new member by banning them because he thinks every new person who joins is me LOL!

Became a grandfather and had to care for my new granddaughter (Genisis) for nearly three years and find myself missing the little sprout terribly now that she's back with her parent.

Well all future post will back in line with you expect from crazygroovcool I promise.

Ultimate delusional douche wad Jason Liebig

I've known him for years and personally I've found his ego to be way out of control for the last two years. He can't/won't accept the fact that he's not a curator (it's takes at least two-three degree's to be one.) he's nothing but a self deluded hoarder. I've brought this up to him on a public forum cerealbits (a forum for fellow trash lovers and hoarders that think old food packaging is highly valuable and a safer investment than stocks and bonds  {some of whom think paying 4000-5000 for a Fruit Brute cereal box is wise and shrewd thing to do} with whom he's the hypocritical hamfisted admin of.) and he went apeshit! He also went to great lengths to brow beat me with several long winded looking down his nose at me rants for daring to question his um shall we say "credentials" LOL! This action on my part ofcourse got me banned for life from cerealbits (boo fragging hoo LOL! At first I enjoyed the forum but soon found it's infighting, brow beating and petty B.S. to be unbearable so I set out too expose the silliness of it all and managed to get myself banned a few times along the way LOL! ). I took some pointless crap from Mike Speth aka Astronit (a Grown man with a pathological obsession for mini plastic figurines produced by R&L.) for telling someone that there modern Wheaties boxes were utterly worthless and pointless to try and sell on ebay as is a true and honest fact.

   It's just 10,000 plus smegging candy wrappers, not high art or culturally/intellectually significant. Flatout nothing to be proud of having or bragging about to the world at large about! For a grown man to have a staggeringly massive amount of garbage stashed in the closet of his New York apartment is seriously deranged to say the very least, but to primp and preen about it and think it makes you important and worthy of respect and praise is totally off the rails of sanity no matter how well organized and documented it is! He's been interviewed a couple times and this feeds his ego and delusions. The funny part is he's so deluded and stupid that he doesn't even realize that he's just being used for freakexplotation LOL! People love to look at and ogle freaks. How else could explain the Kardashians "fame"? Ignorance truly is bliss! (at least it is for Jason Liebig and his ilk LOL!)

   A hobby is a healthy past time and a great way to relax and have some fun (heck I collect a few things and I'm sure many of you reading this do aswell within reason like me.), but obsession and the idea that what your doing is culturally important and historically meaningful now and to future generations plus having a massive stash of thousands of candy wrappers hidden in a closet and being terrified that someone else may want them for themselves or keep you from getting more of yesterdays garbage for your prized hoard of literal trash and yet taking every opportunity to self promote it and it's importance compounded by lashing out at anyone that questions it's worth or the general drive too achieve such a pointless amassment are the workings of a seriously fractured mind.

To put it bluntly you'd have to be eff'n nuts to go those ridiculous extremes wouldn't you?

   Kurt Lawarence aka opiecrunch also fits this bill as he has a truly obsessive compulsive behavior to have one or more of every cereal box ever plus he thinks he will fund his retirement with proceeds he will get for selling them in the future! He has also feuded with Jason Liebig to great comical effect. Jason Liebig also royally pissed of a new member to forum using the monicker count, he wanted beat holy living the crap out of Jason Liebig for being a jerk to him on the cerealbits forum.

   You have to wonder what can take a man from being an editor for a major comic book publishing company (he was the editor of Marvel Comics X-Men line in the 90's. Fired for telling his boss Bob Harraras f-u to his face wich was not the best of choices to ensure long term job security.) and a sometimes actor and summertime bartender for a s&m leather gay bar(he claims to have a "girl friend") to where he's at now... Perhaps he's a high functioning autistic adult? He even bragged/wrote and posted pictures about digging a hole in parents yard a few years back about his quest to find an old snack chip bag(Tasty Mix) that his family buried in one of several trash pits on there property. Guess they were to poor to afford trash pick-up and or to lazy to burn it LOL!

   I've known drug addicts who were more level headed than Jason Liebig...

  Sorry for the rant but I really had to blow off a little steam.

Our "Munchies" are under siege!

The Prez's ball and chain is behind this.

I didn't slug it out in Kuwait,Afganhastan and Iraq to have somebodies do as i say not as i do wife deny me(or anyone else for that matter!) the right eat whatever the hell i/they want and as much as i/they want!

{This ranks up there with this-Sally(gidget) field thought we were paid too much in the army and didn't deserve a pay raise because we got tiny bottles of tabassco in our MRE'S}

Revolutions have been started over goverment over reachings like this you know... Nobody elected her she wasn't on any ballot I ever saw.

Should a candy company (Mars) really be concerning itself with health and nutrition? Shouldn't it leave that to the tofu makers? Low-calorie candy bars are like vegan butter. What's the point? Why not add probiotics and flaxseed meal to their candy bars while they're at it? Maybe some organic wild salmon oil? It's candy for petes sake! Whats next sugar free slushies?

Rare comic pressing/cheat/doctoring in new overstreet price guide!

Rare comic pressing/cheat/doctoring in new overstreet price guide!

Seems a small company has perfected comic book doctoring aka "pressing" to signifigantly inflate the already infated graded comic book market. They have a full page ad in the new Overstreet Price Guide bragging about how they have developed a technique that is undetectable by CGC's pro graders(and I use the term "pro grader" losely people.) so as not be labeled restored and as such bring a much a higher price by duping buyers with doctored comics.

Chances are those record sales for comics were due to "pressing". The add clearly brags about an amazing fantasy 15 being doctored from a 6.0 to a resubmitted to CGC 7.5 adding 30 plus grand to the final auction price!

If people will pay stupid money for stuff crooks will invent ways to maximize that potential gain on there behalf.
With this bit of info and the knowledge of Legendary/Mastro Auctions(currently under federal inditment for fraud no less.) knowlingly shilling, and doctoring high end sports items with The PSA( the 2.8 million Honus Wagner recently auctioned by Legendary was trimmed by Legendary to make it look better and the PSA knew it was trimmed and still gave it a grade of 7 PSA is also being questioned by the Feds.) card graders helping the scam along this really isn't much of a surprise is it?

High end collectables are rapidly becoming high risk.

The Backpage dilemma

Is it possible to rid the online classified site of child trafficking without shuttering its adult section?

This week saw a renewed effort, led by the New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof, to pressure Village Voice Media’s online classified site to shutter its adult section. On Sunday, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist offered up a harrowing story about “Alissa,” whose pimp used the site to sell her for sex at the age of 16 and 17. A couple of days later, Kristof responded to a Village Voice article claiming that his original column contained factual errors with a rebuttal and a call for Backpage to “get out of carrying prostitution advertising” altogether.
For many progressives, there is a dramatic tension here: Horror at the existence of child trafficking, and a desire to see it disappear, and yet a belief that consenting adults should be able to do what they want sexually — maybe even if it involves the exchange of money. It’s not even a question of one concern trumping the other, because, while theories abound, it’s unclear what impact the shuttering of Backpage’s adult section would have on trafficking as a whole, let alone whether similar ads wouldn’t just pop up in the personals section; nor is it clear what impact the site’s screening measures have had on reducing trafficking ads.
It’s hard enough nailing down accurate figures on the number of children trafficked in the U.S. each year — the most commonly cited estimate is 100,000 to 300,000, but the Village Voice claims those figures are wildly inflated and “hatched without regard to science.” We do know that more than 50 cases of child trafficking (attempted or otherwise) on Backpage have been reported over a three-year period, which brings up another quandary: Do we castigate the site for failing to detect those ads or celebrate these as cases where traffickers were actually caught? Furthering the contradiction: Backpage is both friend and foe to traffickers. It’s an ideal advertising outlet, but it’s also one of the most, if not the most, relied upon tools for law enforcement to identify child trafficking victims.
Given the complexities here, details are especially important — and they’ve gotten lost in this emotionally charged debate. For example, it’s worth taking a closer look at what Backpage does do to vet ads. Liz McDougall, general counsel for Village Voice Media, tells me the site “operates an automated filter system to preclude ads with suspect words and phrases.” The specifics of the system are guarded by lock and key to make it harder for traffickers to circumvent it. On top of this, Backpage has real-life human beings manually review all submitted content for the adult and personal sections before it’s posted on the site. Just to be double sure, Backpage does another manual review of all material once it’s actually published in either section.
When Backpage identifies an ad potentially advertising a minor, it “immediately reports it to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children,” and an “‘expedited’ reporting system” is in place for cases “where there appears to be an imminent possibility of rescue.” All postings require a credit card number, which can be subpoenaed by law enforcement, and Backpage has a policy of responding within 24 hours, says McDougall. She adds that the site “stands ready and willing to do more,” especially “in cooperation with government, nongovernmental, public, private and all other interest groups sincerely dedicated to pragmatic approaches to addressing this scourge.”
Backpage is attempting to both prevent traffickers from advertising on the site and to assist law enforcement in cases where they do slip through — but is it enough? The site’s outspoken critics certainly don’t think so. Short of no longer carrying sex ads, Kristoff suggests that Backpage require an ID check for those placing ads to ensure that they are adults — but that only addresses trafficking cases where the minor is advertising herself. “I assume that critics sometimes urge age verification anyway because child sex trafficking is a horrific crime and we want to feel active in fighting it,” McDougall says. “But it does not help the problem to advocate measures that have superficial appeal but no real effect.”
Ultimately, most critics will accept nothing less than the site shutting down its adult section — but this will likely direct business elsewhere (just as Craigslist’s shuttering of its adult section drove traffic to Backpage), and potentially to less cooperative businesses.
That’s not to mention that many sex worker activists argue that closing Backpage’s adult section will make it harder, and more dangerous, for those who are willingly in the industry to ply their trade. “What it comes down to is what keeps the most people the most safe, and what actually makes sense for sex workers,” says Sarah Patterson, a community organizer for the Sex Worker’s Outreach Project’s New Work City chapter. She argues that the ultimate answer is decriminalizing sex work while also protecting those who are being coerced into the business; and in this particular case, she says it’s allowing adults to sell sexual services on Backpage while also going after those selling non-consensual services. “For a lot of people that’s really hard to imagine,” she says, explaining that sex work is generally seen only in black and white terms. “Unfortunately for me, that is the solution.”
