Man do i hate my job!!
Was watching CNN yesterday morning and they had a story on this documentary on Comic-Con
Very interesting movie idea.
It turns out they had nothing to worry about. “Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope,” which opens Thursday in limited release, sets its phasers on sentimental. Spurlock has made an 88-minute movie that is, by his own admission, sweet, earnest and respectful of the pop culture tribes who gather every year at Comic-Con, the annual pop culture expo in San Diego that attracts 130,000 people with its celebration of toys, sci-fi, fantasy, spectacle films and comics.
For Spurlock, a 41-year-old West Virginia native, this was a movie saluting the flag of subculture and irony-free passion, not taping a “kick me” sign to the back of its collective Spider-Man T-shirt.
ix, your ComicCon documentary reminds me of this:
Is Wale solely responsible for the whole DC Metro = DMV thing? The first time I ever heard it was through him, but I'm just wondering if he got it from somewhere else? I was out of the area for a few years so maybe I missed it.
Just asking because I was reading a Rich Tandler post where he refers to this as the DMV. Pretty impressive if Wale started it and it's now reached this level.
I had heard of DMV before I heard of Wale. But I found out about Wale much later than most people so take it for what its worth.
I thought Mambo Sauce started it?

Can't believe I've been researching this for the past 30 minutes. Anyway, this is the best that I could find:
That last part is utter garbage though.In the DC Metro Area, it is slang term for the DC metro area. It is a term that has been recognized as far back as 2004 when local R&B and Hip Hop stations "WKYS 93.9" and "WPGC 95.5" started advertising themselves as radio stations that play the biggest hits in the DC area. As the time has passed by (and thanks to Wale), it has become a widely known term for the DC metro area. There have been local international calling cards that also bore the name "DMV" as far back as 2000, but never were able to popularize the name for the DC metro area like the way the radio stations did. It is not a popular term in the actual "DMV" area as many people prefer to represent their areas of DC which are: PG, NoVA, Route 1/The Highway (Richmond Highway portion), Chirilagua/Arlandria, South Arlington, and many smaller communities.
I grew up in PG county and also lived in Northern Virginia, and never heard anybody in real life refer to the area as "the DMV". This board was the first place I ever heard that term, and I originally thought it meant the same thing as "Delmarva". The only thing DMV means to me is "Department of Motor Vehicles".
DMV has been around for a while.
There used to be a BK in what is known as "Westfield Montgomery"Burger King doesn't deny that its new chicken strips, caramel frappe coffees, Caesar salads and strawberry-banana smoothies sound pretty close to those on McDonald's popular menu. But executives say the company came up with them through its research.
"Consumers wanted more choices," said Steve Wiborg, president of Burger King's North America operations. "Not just healthy choices, but choices they could get at the competition."
The menu additions are part of Burger King's plan to abandon its nearly single-minded courtship of young men, who were once the lifeblood of the industry but were hard hit by the economic downturn. Competitors went after new customers with breakfast items and healthier fare, but Burger King let its menu get stale. As a result, Burger King for the first time was edged out by Wendy's last year as the nation's No. 2 burger chain. McDonald's solidified its hold on No. 1.
Now the nearest BK is somewhere up in Gaithersburg
