A propane accident on the 10? Or WATERWORLD! THE SHOW!…


And there was a man on fire and I killed a man with a trident.
I know, I saw, speaking of which, Brick, you might want to spend some time with friends because you’re probably wanted for murder.
Yes! Waterworld is alive and well at Universal Studios and it’s so much better than the movie. The funny thing about Universal Studios is that…not every movie deserves a ride and yet they have to make the decision to make a ride out of say…

Van Helsing years before anyone has a chance to hate it. The Van Helsing ride is now closed by the way. Hilariously there were Tokyo Drift props everywhere, like nobody else would take them.

But the Waterworld show is awesome! There’s fifteen stuntmen who play out an adventure of “The Mariner” on this HUGE ASS set.

When I was a kid I lived on hundreds of acres of woods, everyday when school was over, the adventure began, I had wide-sweeping adventures against The Imperial Forces, Belloq, and numerous Predators in those woods. Watching these actors run, jump, play, explode, catch on fire, slide on zip lines, swing on ropes with the girl, fire fake gatling guns from moving boats, jump jetski’s over exploding drums, hang for dear life and dive from great heights was just awesome. Los Angeles, more than anyplace else, encourages you to be children forever, which is all I really ask.

And then the best, most expensive moment which they do twenty times a day. They fly a fiery plane through a breakaway wall.

Then after the show they named off the cast. “From CSI: Tom Johnson!” “From Lost: Bill Parks!” and they continued to name big tv shows who’s stars had all decided, for some reason, to moonlight as Dennis Hopper in a tourist trap. They were, of course, all stuntpeople from the shows. Funny.
