Creepers, Boats, and Boomboxes; OH MY!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I really like to laugh and watch/read/listen to things that make me do so.  That being said, I LOVE The Lonely Island.  In case you don't know who they are, go here and have a look around.
The guys released an album last year, "Incredibad" that made pretty much everyone that knows who they are happy and made those who don't know them like them.
Now, coming in 2011, they are releasing a new album!
I personally can't wait for it to come out.  Two new videos from the album are already on YouTube.  "The Creep" and "I Just had Sex".  Both of these feature well known artists and are really funny. 
If you want to get a good feel for the songs, you should really watch the videos that accompany most of them.  Boombox is one of my personal favorites.

So comment and let me know if you have heard of them, what your opinion of them is, and if you like them or not.

Correction: Superman 3.0 - Nolan to Mentor Yet Another Reboot

I just read this article and a new Superman movie is targeted for release in Dec 2012. As much as I like Chris Nolan's comic-based films, (especially the newest Batman series) I have to wonder when this reboot stuff, in general, will end.
I mean, with Batman, something had to be done. They ended the last series with 2 really crappy movies and kind of ruined Batman in my opinion. Thankfully, Nolan came in and did an amazing job giving Batman back his street cred.

Now back to Superman. I personally thought that the last movie was a good way to revive the series and since Brian Singer is such a HUGE superman fan, he stayed true to the core values that made superman great. And Brandon Routh was a really good choice to play him, too. The new guy is a British actor named Henry Cavill  who, from his head shot looks very rough and grizzled. I'm hoping that they clean him up enough to pass as everyone's favorite clean shaven Kryptonian.

So what do you guys think about a Nolan Superman reboot?
