About yeti9000

Yeti9000 (aka Tomás Romero) is a professional screenwriter/journalist from Los Angeles, CA, where he blogs as often as he can about movies, pop culture, food, toys, writing and the gleeful insanity of stay-at-home-fatherhood. Enjoy!

We’ve Moved!

Well, amigos, I’m pretty sure that it has been apparent for a while now — especially considering that our last post was from 2012! — but, effectively immediately, we are officially closing up shop here at Make.See.Eat.Do. and moving to our sister site, stayathomeyeti.wordpress.com.

Thank you for “following us” for the past seven years, it’s been a real pleasure generating content for you guys, and your continued support and comments have meant the world to us. Unfortunately, the rigors of working as a freelance writer, raising a kid and blogging regularly on three sites has become too much. So, something had to go…sorry.

However, if you’re looking for more fun, food, travel, crafting and movie geek awesomeness in the future, please check out our ever-evolving stayathomeyeti blog. We still talk a lot about child-rearing stuff and stay-at-home-fatherhood, but, the site is expanding and changing every month…so, come check us out.

And if you like video blogs celebrating collectible toy unboxings, cereal eating contests and all things My Little Pony, you might also enjoy our daughter Greta’s newly revamped Planet Greta blog. And if you just wanna hang out here and reread your favorite posts on Graceland and Nashville, well, that’s cool too. The site isn’t going anywhere, so, have at it!

And finally, thanks again for everything, amigos…you guys have been awesome!

Trailer Thursday: “Cloud Atlas”

What do you get you combine the mad genius minds behind “The Matrix” trilogy and the quick-cut renegade who directed “Run Lola Run”? Well, apparently, something like “Cloud Atlas”. I’m not sure what this movie is about or how each segment relates to the others, but, holy crap, does it look cool!

It also looks like the kind of movie that audiences are either gonna love or totally hate with a passion. With ideas this big, sweeping and crazy, there will be no middle ground and that makes me wanna see it even more! Go, “Cloud Atlas”!

Oh yeah, and if you dig the trailer, you might wanna watch the highly-unusual trailer introduction taped by the film’s directors, Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski and his new sister, Lana (formerly Larry) Wachowski.

That’s right, amigos, one of the big galoots behind “The Matrix” is now a chick. And not a bad-looking one at that. I’m kinda digging the pink dreads…very “Run Lola Run” of her. Good on you, Lana!

2012 London Olympics

Just wanted to let you guys know that the majority of our usual Olympics coverage has moved over to our sister blog, Stay-at-Home-Yeti. It’s not that I don’t love y’all anymore, it’s just way too hard to juggle two blogs, a toddler and NBC’s wall-to-wall coverage of this year’s Summer Olympics.

So, for now, if you wanna read my take on the events in London…click here.

Celebrate Free Slurpee Day @ 7-11 today!

Wow, this heat must be going to my head because I totally forgot that today is Free Slurpee Day at 7-11 stores nationwide. And while the heat of the day may be burning off, that doesn’t mean there’s not still time to get out there and get your free Slurpee on. So, have one on me, amigos!

Oh, and stay away from the Sugar-Free Mango flavor. I tried it recently in an effort to stick to my diet and, lord in heaven, it is a total abomination. Seriously, it’s the worst Slurpee flavor I’ve ever tasted, and I’ve had them all…so, avoid the Sugar-Free Mango at all costs! You’ll thank me later…

And, once again, Happy Free Slurpee Day 2012, everyone!

Anderson Cooper makes it official…

By now you’ve probably all heard the news that really isn’t news at all. Yep, that’s right, Anderson Cooper, the king of understated elegance and class — in his personal life at least. His talk show, which we used to LOVE, has become kind of circus-freaky lately — has officially come out as gay. Not really surprising, I mean, hello, the dude wore Prada suits when he hosted “The Mole” back in the day, but, in my  mind it’s always good when a major celebrity comes out.

And it’s even better news when a major celebrity comes out and nobody really cares or makes a big old deal about it. That’s the way it should be. Congrats on coming out, dude, but, seriously, try to reign in the crazy next season on “The Anderson Cooper” show. It’s gone a wee bit off the rails

Whoo-hoo, it’s about time we took this issue off the table. Next topic, Mr. Romney?

Wow, just wow. Every once in a while the Supreme Court gets it right and today they got it crazy right. I don’t think Obamacare is perfect, but, it’s a much needed step in the right direction. And as a SAHD whose family of three, in an effort to save money, has three separate health care plans with three separate providers and all the paperwork and bullshit that comes with it, all I can say is…amen, baby. Let’s fix this shit! Long live, Obamacare!

And long live Chief Justice John Roberts for breaking rank with his backwards-thinking cronies for a change. As Joe Biden would say: “This is a big fucking deal!”

Google Doodle Celebrates Drive-In Movie Theatres!

I know it’s a little late in the day to bring this up, but, did anyone notice that cool-ass Google Doodle that’s been up all day today? And if you noticed it, did you take the time to actually click on it too?

Well, just in case you missed it, here again for your viewing pleasure is Google’s salute to the 79th birthday of the drive-in theatre! Wow…who knew they had drive-ins in the 1930’s? Crazy, huh?

Anyway, enjoy the clip below and if you happen to be lucky enough to live near a drive-in, I command you to head over there and get your outdoor movie theatre on! I grew up near the late, great Skyview drive-in in Santa Cruz and have many tales to tell of my adventures there, none of them suitable for a family blog, but all of them as vivid and wonderful as drive-in culture itself! Oh, the memories…

Happy 79th birthday drive-ins…seriously, you don’t look a day over 50 to me!
