Shhhh.. Don't speak till you read. Don't judge till you judge yourself.
Just a place for me to speak freely without anyone breathing down my neck
and just judging who I am and what I write about.
If you do have something to say nonetheless then I shall listen. :]

Come Away With Me, 6:47 PM, Thursday, July 2, 2009
Jass? Me? Really?
I'm Jazz it seems. Really?
Jazz is the "very cool, very stylish, very competent" member of the Autobots in the Transformers television and comic series based on the popular toy line produced by Takara and Hasbro. His original vehicle mode is a Martini Porsche 935 Turbo racing car. Self-possessed, calm, and utterly collected, Jazz is head of Special Operations, with his own dedicated roster of agents. He often gives the most dangerous assignments to himself. It's not a matter of ego—he just really is the coolest head for the toughest missions. Jazz's ease extends to whatever environment he finds himself in, no matter how weird or wonderful. He effortlessly tunes in to the local culture, assimilating and improvising, and making creative command decisions, making him an indispensable right-hand bot to Optimus Prime.
Lt. Jazz appears in the 2007 Transformers live-action film directed by Michael Bay. When the movie producers unveiled the final list of Transformers characters appearing in the movie, Jazz was described as having a love of style, with a hip-hop personality. Using a fluid capoeira inspired style, he can be seen transforming using a windmill type dance move in his first scene and saying "What's crackin', li'l bitches?"
Jazz's look also pays homage to Generation 1, retaining his trademark "visor" as well as front-chassis chest and wheel wells in his feet. Also, his transformation to vehicle mode. Jazz's alternate mode is a silver/gray customized hardtop Pontiac Solstice GXP, similar to the weekend racer concept car. Jazz's weapons include a shield and a shield-mounted machine gun. He also possesses a type of electro-magnet in his right arm, which he uses to disarm humans of their guns without causing them injury, curiously leaving jewellery and electronics unaffected. One weapon considered for Jazz was a plasma cannon that combined with his shield, shown in concept art by Hasbro at BotCon 2007.
Jazz is the smallest of the Autobots. Michael Bay stated in an early interview that Jazz stands 13 feet tall, however the scale of his Deluxe toy suggests he would stand closer to 15 feet tall. This is confirmed by his profile in the second issue of the Transformers U.K. Magazine, where it is stated he stands 15 feet 7 inches tall, weighs 1.8 tons and has a maximum speed of 400 miles per hour. The official guide to the Transformers video game also says he's 15 feet tall. Despite his small stature, Jazz was fearless, and would not hesitate to attack a much larger foe. Ultimately, Jazz was killed near the end of the movie. After Megatron's arrival at Mission City, Jazz realizes that, even with Ironhide and Ratchet, they are no match. To buy some time, he orders the retreat of his comrades and engages Megatron single-handedly. Jazz was carried to the top of a nearby skyscraper and crushed by the full weight of Megatron. Defiant to the end, Jazz continued to antagonize and attack, shouting "You wanna piece of me!" before he was brutally ripped in half by Megatron replying "No, I want, TWO!", killing him instantly.
Jazz is a Lieutenant for the Autobots and second-in-command next to Optimus Prime on Earth. He is the small fighter standing only 13ft tall, but he is an expert fighter. Jazz worries a lot about his appearance and gets angry if something scratches. He is very quick and fast as well. His vehicle form is the Pontiac Solstice GXP.
Motto: "Do it with style or don't bother doing it."
