Ten reasons why we hate Facebook as presented by puppet comedy duo Glove and Boots.Ten reasons why we hate Facebook as presented by puppet comedy duo Glove and Boots.

And I now have a new favorite show on YouTube. My favorite part of this video probably has to be the gorilla shouting BLOG to start it all off (the origins of which can be traced back to their video called 'What is Blog?'). To view more of Glove and Boots follow along on their channel.

Given that brand equity and the track record for other films based on ’80s properties, like Transformers, the idea of a Space Invaders movie has been around for a while. Last March, the L.A.

He is one of the producers of the Transformers films as well as G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra.

Didn't we say everything we needed to say with the last two Short Circuit movies? Must we bring Johnny 5 to this generation? That space has already been occupied by a cuter robot named WALL-E.
