NOTES ON MIB3!

Wow. So as you know last night was the midnight showing of MIB3! I went with a couple of friends and let me tell you- it was AWESOME! There was a  really good crowd and everyone was having a great time.

I don’t want to spoil anything for you, but it really was an awesome ending to the MIB trilogy. Will Smith was hilarious (as always) and Josh Brolin played an EXCELLENT Agent K. I spotted some of the Celebs that I mentioned in earlier posts, and all of the appearances were great additions.

As for Wu’s Diamond Garden, and Clive’s Tattoo shop: I think we suspected all along that some strange things were going down there, now I know the truth! (“Strange things” is an understatement) Looking back, I think they did a really cool job leaking that stuff before the movie. It made me feel like an insider!

Anyways, I really recommend that you see it. It was funny and exciting with some great acting and incredible effects! Plus, if you are near NYC like me, it is supposed to be thunderstorming all week so it is the perfect time to get your butt in a movie theater!!!

Some cool extras that I learned:

MIB3 was the most expensive movie ever made in NYC!

Also, a very large part of the NYC scenes in MIB3 were filmed on location (that means  they were actually filmed in New York and not in a movie lot in LA). They really went to Chinatown for Wu’s!

 

Fortune Cookie on Mars?

Uh Oh, does “Wu’s” have some explaining to do? My new favorite news outlet, the Weekly World News, reports on the strange find!

 
HOUSTON, Texas — The Mars Exploration Rover Spirit has contacted NASA with some incredible news. It hasn’t just found water on Mars — it’s found a fortune cookie!

The roving robot runs on solar power, and since it is currently unexposed to sunlight during the Martian winter, scientists weren’t expecting to receive a transmission from it until November — if ever.

“The Spirit rover is currently experiencing temperatures lower than it’s really designed for,” says space scientist Dr. William Lucci. “There was a likelihood that it wouldn’t survive the winter in working order.”
That makes the transmission doubly surprising. First, for the incredible data it carried, second because it was able to send a transmission at all.

“It makes a kind of sense,” says Lucci. “Bizarrely enough, it’s as though the fortune cookie ‘cured’ the rover.”

The cookie found by the rover was in the form of ice crystals. Chemical analysis showed that the cookie was subtly different from regular cookies.

Dr. William Lucci says chemical analysis shows the fortune cookie contains rare ‘God’ molecule.

“It’s not generally known,” says Lucci, “and scientists don’t like to talk about it because it’s impossible to explain, but studies have shown that a fortune cookie changes in discernible ways after it has been exposed to the Martian atmosphere.”

An experiment conducted by Australia’s McMurphy University in 2005 found that fortune cookies, unlike regular cookies, fluoresce under ultra-violet light. Fortune cookies also seem to contain an extra molecular component that has yet to be identified and has been dubbed by some as the “God molecule.” The Martian cookie, when tested by the rover, turned out to have exactly the same odd characteristics found in the McMurphy University research.

“The real question is,” says Lucci, “how did a fortune cookie end up on Mars?”

Good question…I wonder what the fortune said!

Play With the Spikey Bulba!

I searched “Wu’s Diamond Garden” and found this really funny site:

http://www.wusdiamondgarden.com/

The MIB3 guys have really gone all out on this one! There are menus, and a very distracting game called “Bop a Bulba!” (Think Whack-a-mole, but with cute Aliens in pots.)

 

My favorite feature of the site is the phone number they provide. I called in just to see what would happen and there was a really funny message from Wu!

Quote of the day:  “Wu’s is not responsible if food attacks or dismembers you!”

Good to know Wu… I don’t think I will be ordering anything soon!

Wu’s “Strange Takeout!”

I keep seeing ad’s for “Wu’s Diamond Garden,” and it has made me seriously crave chinese…getting some dim sum! Thankfully I’m not ACTUALLY getting it from “Wu’s,” because look at what was reported in the Weekly World News about their restaurant!

NEW YORK — Last week, popular Chinese restaurant Wu’s Diamond Garden received a strange call from outside of their delivery area… way outside.

“They ordered 30 quarts of Clams and Loofa Soup, 20 Fried Wontons, 50 orders of Fishy in Scallion Sauce, and a carton of white rice,” said Diamond Garden employee Joy Luk.

“Then they asked us to deliver it to Lunar Base Beta on the Moon’s far side, apartment number 20000023. I assumed it was someone playing a joke and hung up.”

However, a half hour later there was a deafening noise in the parking lot be- hind the restaurant. Luk went outside to investigate and got the surprise of her life. “A small spaceship landed in the parking lot, flattening some garbage cans and my Camry,” said Luk. “The door slid open and a small alien with large oval eyes emerged.”

The extraterrestrial apologized for the unusual phone call, and the damage, and explained that he was part of a Martian settlement on our Moon. His people had sampled Chinese food while visiting Earth and brought back leftovers, which had run out. Fortunately, they had a menu and wanted us to deliver.

“I explained to the Martian that we couldn’t deliver to the moon, that Earth didn’t have the technology,” said Luk. “Besides, we couldn’t afford to have one of our delivery people away for so long.”

The Martian had a simple solution: He offered Luk a mini spacecraft to make the deliveries.
“He said the two-ion driver was easy to fly and would make the round trip in under an hour,” Luk said. “He also said we could use the ship for our other deliveries the rest of the time. I agreed to his terms.”

When asked why she didn’t simply open a restaurant on the moon, she replied, “I wouldn’t run a place with no atmosphere.”

WWN requested a follow-up story, but Luk was unavailable for comment. Owner Wu claimed to “not know what we were talking about,” and to “please not come here anymore.”

Ha! I’m getting the sense that strange things go on at “Wu’s!” It looks like something awesome happens there in the MIB3 trailer :)

Now for some food…won’t be ordering the “Spikey Bulba!”
