Hello, I am a big nerd

So, what with one thing and another I haven't had the chance or the motivation to update this LJ in quite a while. But there have been a couple things I wish to share with you, my readers.

Several weeks ago, I was flipping through the TV channels, and happened on the SciFi Channel (oh, excuse me, it's "SyFy" now. Whoever came up with that name change is apparently unaware that the new name is Eastern European slang for syphilis. BRB LOLING FOREVER) while it was showing that classic cinematic masterpiece, Mega-Shark Versus Giant Octopus. I just might have to buy this movie, for not only does it star 80's pop icon Debbie (pardon me, Deborah) Gibson, but it also contains the MOST AWESOME THING I HAVE EVER SEEN IN A MOVIE EVER.

Don't believe me? Check it out for yourself.

Also in terms of cinematic awesomeness, the good folks at Robot Chicken did a small piece in memory of the late Ricardo Montalban: The Wrath of Khan, opera-style. Brava, says I!

And finally, as the result of being bored on a break at work, this may very well be the nerdiest poll I've ever come up with:

Poll #1465960 Battle of the Insane Supercomputers

Who would win, in a fight between...

HAL 9000 ("This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.")
WOPR ("Greetings, Professor Falken. Shall we play a game?")
GLaDOS ("Despite your violent behavior, the only thing you've managed to break so far... is my heart.")
Other (explain below)
