Many years ago, I wrote a series of pulp sci-fi detective stories, starring a character called Nutmeg Rodriguez. I was on a big M-Rod kick at the time, so for the illustrations I basically just drew her character from GirlFight, but with an eye-patch and a pistol… and now, here she is rocking that same look for the forthcoming Machete movie! Of course, I’m not going to be one of those crazy peeps who tries to sue a major movie studio for stealing my ideas… because I don’t think giving someone an eye-patch even qualifies as an “idea”. A lot of people I know are talking up the fancy-schmancy sci-fi flick Inception, but Machete is the only film coming out this year that I’m actually excited about seeing… it’s got a ridiculously stacked all-star cast, and I still think Planet Terror is the best (or at least the most consistently enjoyable) thing that R-Rod has ever done, so hopefully this sort-of-spin-off will be up to the same standard.
Oh, I forgot to mention what prompted this outburst… according to my horoscope site, it’s M-Rod’s B-Day today, so best wishes to her.
