  1. Roooooooooooooooooobyyyyyyyyyyyn! YAY! So great to see you in a vlog again. I mean, it hasn’t even been that long, but still!

    And naturally, this was great fun. I’m definitely always going to refer to that ape as “Coba Commander”. That’s his name now. Forever.
    I think Dinosaurs were not technically reptiles… The lineage split of before proper reptiles evolved, if I’m not mistaken. And yeah, cephalopods are octopuseseseses, squid, cuttlefish and the like.
    I don’t know if Orangs really are the most intelligent apes, but they check the sky to see if it looks like it’s going to rain before they build roofs from leafs for the night. So yeah, they’re pretty fucking smart.

  2. I think Beneath the Planet of the Apes is a pretty good film. Its biggest flaw is the fact that Charlton Heston only agreed to appear in a cameo, and so they had to introduce a new astronaut which was a bit clunky as far as plotting goes, however, if I had to list the Planet of the Apes films in order of liking, I’d say:

    First Place: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
    Second Place: Rise of the Planet of the Apes
    Third Place: Planet of the Apes (1968 version)
    Forth Place: Beneath the Planet of the Apes
    Fifth Place: Conquest of the Planet of the Apes
    Sixth Place: Escape from the Planet of the Apes
    Seventh Place: Battle for the Planet of the Apes
    Eighth Place: Planet of the Apes (2001 version)

    There you go. Everyone likes lists, and I’m sure this one will be very popular.:P

  3. you played Ape Escape?

    Jill Steinberg worked on Ape Escape, and another actress with that name worked on the Accidental Wolf with Kelli O’Hara, Judith Ivey and Mike Doyle and Electric Boots/Precipe Dynamics’ Stag with Kevin Newbury and Spanglish’s Sarah Steele.
