I'm old and I'm white, plus I have children so I have no idea what Running the Jewels is... other than the fact that it's a bad ass hip hop duo comprised of Killer Mike and El-P. I don't know, I've been sick for the last 4 days and am so far behind at work it's hilarious, I figure running the Jewels is just something I should be doing. Is it anything like setting a new high score on Angry Bird Transformers?
Breastaurants Booming As The Restaurant Industry Struggles. Good for the Breastaurants but I won't be visiting one. I've been to Hooters I think 3 times and every single time I felt incredibly awkward. It's all so weird. I feel like if I went there enough I'd turn into George Costanza when he combined food and sex. One day I'm just eating a pastrami sandwich and HELLO..
13 Unlikely Comic Book Crossovers (That Actually Happened). It's a rare day at the comic book shop where I pick up Transformers vs GI Joe or X-Men vs Star Trek but I'm glad these crazy comics exist. I mean who else is going to feed the nerdy desire of having Captain Kirk hook up with Rogue? The Internet? I really think the Internet has better things to do.
Ralph McQuarrie's concept art for Star Wars. There's nothing new here it's just a giant imgur gallery of Ralph McQuarrie's gorgeous concept art for Star Wars. Man these are really amazing. I'm pretty excited to see that JJ Abrams is going back to these concepts for Episode VII. At least from the first look at the X-wing we say it looks like he is. I don't see any paintings of our new rolly ball robot friend in here.
So everyone knows that R2-D2 is the sassiest droid in a galaxy far far away but did you ever want to know exactaly how sassy he is? Some nerd out there scoured their droid to English dictionary and has provided us with subtitles for a few choice scenes.
Can you really blame the little guy? I mean if you had to deal with C3-PO ALL DAY, EVERY DAY for roughly 20 years I'm guessing you'd be a bit short with people too.
Any Workaholics fans out there? If so you probably already know Season 5 premieres tonight but you might not have caught this insane trailer for it. I'm 99% sure they blew the entire budget for season 5 on the trailer. Every episode will probably take place on their roof.
I like Workaholics well enough. It's not destination TV for me or anything but it's nice to have on the DVR during 2am feedings with the toddler that will never sleep. It's one of those shows that will have a couple alright episodes and then one that's just incredible. That homemade water slide scene from season 4 was worth the entire season.
In case you weren't one of the millions tuning in to watch Ohio State embarrass Oregon here's the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer you missed. Really you didn't miss that much. Sure there's plenty of new footage compared to the first trailer but the themes aren't that different from the first one. Destruction everywhere, The Avengers looking defeated, Ultron rising from the ashes, Hulkbuster armor. Don't get me wrong, I'm still super excited to see the movie it's just that this trailer didn't wow me or anything. I only watched it 6 or 7 times this morning.
The CW is really doubling down on their Comic Book TV shows. First Arrow, then The Flash now iZombie and a Supergirl show. That's a lot of comic books on TV. Where are all the sparkly vampires and Sex in the City prequels going to go?
iZombie looks ok, sassy zombie that eats brains to solve murders by the guy that did Veronica Mars sounds like a slam dunk but it feels a bit too Veronica Marsy. Just name the show Zombie Veronica Mars and be done with it. Of course I do hope the show is a huge hit. I'm looking for more comics to sell on ebay and right now my copy of iZombie #1 is just sitting there doing nothing.
Did you know that there was an entire episode of Archer made where Archer was replaced with a Velociraptor for zero reason? It's amazing. I haven't watched last nights season premier but unless they randomly replaced Lana with a sloth or a Yeti I can't imagine it being better than this.
My name is Kevin and I blog, mostly about nerdy stuff. I'm old enough to know that Gobots came before Transformers and geeky enough to care.
If you have something cool or nerdy you just have to share, e-mail me at kevin @ devildinosaur.com
