Friend saw the movie and said it was a bland ending and I couldnt believe conner wasnt replaced with a robot by the end.. I mean WTF? That bland ending couldnt have been what McG was talkin about!
then I found this. H-O-L-Y S-H-I-T!
well this explains it all doesnt it?!?!?!?
I hope the begining of the next (Ha! there wont be any next terminator!!!) puts the original ending back into play.. *SIGH*

did cbgb's have bands sign the walls? If not which club was it? or was it all a sham..?
On another note.. pinochio came out on an anniversary edition disc about the same time as a certain film was hitting the cinemas. In the commercial they said something about a blue fairy that can make your dreams come true.. so I suddenly blurted out, "oh you mean Doctor Manhattan?"
I never saw that particular tangent before. thanks disney for the timing on the dvd release.

I was inspired to create the fictional Kaneda Jones, in part, due to the multitude of characters written thru out the massive writings for TV and books who could walk thru the walls between realities.
for your review I now present a list of all those I can remember off the top of my head.
First off, the ones either inspiring of or just so damn similar to, Kaneda Jones of the mediaverse:
although Doctor Who jumps places on an almost daily basus, it is in the doctor who serial "The Mind Robber" (1968) in which his tardis lands in a world made exclusively out of the mind of a kidnapped earth author. The author wants the doctor to take his place so in the end they duel it out using the fictional troops they can dream up.. very interesting when compared to what little fiction I have written about Kaneda Jones (except mine is more contemporary).
The Mind Robber fan trailer on youtube
In 1996 DC and Marvel comics went about melding their two respective universes for a big event called the amalgam universe. To help fecilitate the process, and to help cracking the two universes apart when it was over, they created a hero who jumped between the two comic book worlds. His name was Axel Asher but his hero name was Access - man I hate how comic book guys have to rhyme or match their real names with their alias!
The Wikipedia article states:
"Access is now a native of both universes and his duty is to keep them separate. If they start to overlap, the universes will merge into the Amalgam Universe once again. Access must move from one universe to the other keeping people from crossing over. If he stays in one place too long, he can cause spontaneous crossovers to occur. Access usually works out situations like this without anyone noticing that he is involved (this is done to explain how the subsequent DC/Marvel crossovers occur. Stories where DC and Marvel heroes appear on a "shared Earth" are believed to be dimensional fluxes where the two universes have begun to merge again. It has also been explained that once Access has restored the timelines, the characters forget about the crossover)"
and refering to his powers..
"Access has the ability to create interdimensional gateways between the two universes. He can use these gateways to teleport himself as well as summon others to him. He also has the ability to travel in time when crossing universes. He can feel the presence of anything from one universe in the other. In addition, Access has recently learned that he can create an "amalgamation" of two people he touches from each universe."
I keep writing Kaneda doing the same kinda thing but its nice to be able to access all of pop culture (including video games!) instead of just the stale Marvel and DC worlds

Magik and Spiral
Both the character Magik and the character Spiral, from the marvel comics universe, used swords to open dimensional portals to hop from one spot to another. In Both cases they use magical energies but in Magik's case her teleportation is also her mutant ability and in Spiral's case she uses arcane magical cyborg tech. Both of these characters, beloved by me during the eighties, inspired my fictional Kaneda Jones to cross dimensions by ripping the fabric of space and time using a sword with a TV remote as a handle. The remote sword also owes its remote'ness to the show sliders I guess.. heh.

Not inspiration for my Kaneda Jones character but cool jumping anyways
Kamen Rider Decade
In Kamen Rider Decade (2009) there is a melding of worlds between the last nine Kamen Rider series and the current one. Because of this the current Kamen Rider is destined to take out all the previous Kamen Riders to save multiple dimensions.. how cool is that? Considering just a few Kamen Riders ago he was riding a time crossing train so he could go forward or back in time ALA "Quantum Leap" this just means Kamen Rider has been a home for universe fuck ups lately. I suggest to them that the next Kamen Rider be set before the big bang.. that would be reeeeealy screwed up!

*** POTENTIAL SPOILER ***
he says right at the bottom of that article that the ending will piss people off. There was a story a month or more ago about a leaked script that had john connor dying and a robot taking his place.. I can see that being a ending that would piss people off. Since its a trilogy I thought they would end part one on a diffrent kinda cliffhanger but I must admit that would be a great setup for film two and three. you can watch Matrix 1 and not care about 2 or 3.. this would make terminator 5 manditory. bastards heheh

while looking for software to monitor bandwidth usage my wife, Ris bumped into a person bitching about the chinese people he had to share his bandwidth with, finally ending with the wish he could say "go back to china" He doesnt say that 'cause that would be rude nevermind the fact that he is a Chinese man born there in Aussieland. Ris read that and piped up "ya, you aren't a racist you are just a placist. feh." then she gave me a look like, holy shiznit I just invented a word and I love the sound of it.
Tuna Burger Bagle:
while making a bagle with mayo and tuna I noticed that when i pile it on as thick as Ris prefers, it starts to resemble the thickness of a good sized burger patty. I have been eating burgers on waffles for some time now and have called them waffleburgers so I thought what the hey, lets 'invent' the Tuna Burger Bagle.

THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY SECRET ORIGINS
SNIPIT FROM WIKIPEDIA ENTRY ON SAID BOOK:
"On the Guide's outdated and typo filled entries (some of which could cause serious injury or death), Adams wrote, "...though it cannot hope to be useful or informative on all matters, it does make the reassuring claim that where it is inaccurate, it is at least definitively inaccurate. In cases of major discrepancy it was always reality that's got it wrong."
"The Guide can receive updates to its data base via Sub-Etha. Field researchers (like Ford Prefect) can also use the Guide to edit entries and transmit these back to the publisher."
MY GOD THE GUIDE IS WIKIPEDIA WITH GALACTIC WIFI!
more serious writing to come later.. or not.
