The Hoard Potato: Fighting Man from Head to Toe  
There's a G.I. Joe movie coming out this summer.

Most of the buzz from the trailers has been positive, so far, but we're inevitably going to get a lot of bitching from the crowd who grew up on the '80s cartoon.

Considering that I had -- and still have -- a 1966-vintage Mercury Astronaut G.I. Joe, and was nearly 20 wheh your precious cartoon assaulted my fond childhood memories, there's not a whole lot I can say that is essentially different than what I said a year and a half ago when people were bitching about Alvin & The Chipmunks.

Come to think of it, I'm not really interested in your positive reactions, either.
I feel: apatheticapathetic

What if you have no reaction at all? What if you live in I-Don't-Care-verse where summer blockbusters have no relationship whatsoever to anything you say or do? Is that OK? ;)

...but by the very act of responding to this pop-culture-infused post, you've been dragged KICKING AND SCREAMING out of the I-Don't-Care-verse and into the DRAMAVERSE!!

Oh, dear! I'm quite sure I won't know what to do with myself! *fans self* All the dramaz! I shall be beside myself.

By the way, if you hadn't picked up on it already, any entry in my journal with "The Hoard Potato" in the subject line is going to focus entirely on pointless pop culture matters, treating them as if they actually bear some kind of cultural significance.

And if you look at my "tag cloud", you'll quickly see that the "hoard potato" tags are by far the most dominant in my archives...

They are my favorite entries, Athe! I have always loved your take on pop culture and your love of the language. :)
