OMG: TMNT!

I am so happy right now. Warner Brothers is producing a fourth installment of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies, with a release date set at 3/30/07 (we have to wait that long??). This one's all digital, and is supposedly "grittier" than the previous three (although it will retain its PG rating). Apple.com has the totally gnarly teaser trailer. Our heroes in a half-shell have returned, carrying on their sturdy backs a risk that people outside of SoCal will start saying "radical" unironically again.

I'm not watching it unless they've gotten the new, grittier Vanilla Ice to reprise his role.

Remember when he trashed that MTV soundstage while Janeane Garofalo looked on, like, "What the fuck have you done to your career, dude?" Now that's gritty.

Some choice excerpts from the Ninja Rap:

"Have you ever seen a turtle Get Down? [I don't think so]
Slammin’ Jammin’ to the new swing sound [Interesting]"

"Villians, you better run and hide -- Because one day you might not slide. Choose your weapon but don’t slip -- Vanilla’s in control with the flex of the mic grip. Rockin’ the crowd the way it should be rocked -- With the Miami drop that you like alot. [is this even about the turtles anymore?]"

Alright, I'm gonna own up to the fact that Josh and I wanted "Coming Out of Their Shells" tour tickets. Available at Lucky supermarkets for $12/head.
