My Dorkery knows no bounds!

I honestly don't want to know what it says about me that I love this song.

Fight Fight Fight!

I've gotta admit, I think the ref dove (one minute in).

All Hail our new kitten overlords

You think any of those "futurists" from the 1950s imagined a world where we could share videos of kittens ridding self propelled vacuum cleaners? No? Well suck on that losers from the 50s, welcome to the future!




A bunch of new Watchmen pictures hit the web yesterday and they're all pretty much awesome. I'm not going to sit here and say that the movie will live up to the Graphic Novel, but at least you can tell they're trying.
Of course not to be outdone, a bunch of new GI Joe pictures hit the web this morning, and oh my God they look horrible. Why even call the movie GI Joe? How is that Zartan? Who are the marketing geniuses that decided to strip away everything made GI Joe cool? I swear this movie is going to make House Party 2 look like House Party.
added bonus picture of the Silke Spectre... rowr...

This whole post is pretty much all ripped off from They're awesome.

Fox News: as stupid on the web as they are on TV

Ugh... I don't know where to start with this story. Fox news is "reporting" that thanks to Barack Obama the world is finally ready for a black comic book superhero.

"Since their inception, there have been only a few black superheroes in comic books, and fewer still have achieved mainstream appeal....
But Obama's rise to the presidency now has many people in the business of creating and marketing heroes hoping that a black superhero will finally break into mainstream pop culture."

sounds stupid right? wait for it... wait for it....

"Before Obama won the presidency, blacks were largely implausible as superheroes, Craft said.
"I think that there is a perception of black people that America is comfortable with, and I'm not sure the hero role was it," he said. "We can be athletes and rappers, but not Superman."

Bingo! We have a winner for dumbest thing you'll read on-line today. Martin Luther King Jr? sucker. Malcolm X? I'm pretty sure he's a rapper. Booker T. Washington? He was an outfielder for the cards right? Hiram Revels? I think he was on Sanford and Son... wait Hiram Revels was the first black man to serve in the US Senate? Are you sure he wasn't on Sanford and Son, I'm pretty good at remembering these kinds of things...

Ok, back to my point. Fox News sucks... on all levels. Now for your pleasure some black superheroes. A few of which have already been on TV or in movies.

Chaos reigns supreme

The details here really don't matter. Some Sicilian League team scores on some other Sicillian league team, the ref disallows the goal and the team still paying attention to the game decides it's their turn to score.

I really love it when a ref loses control of a game. Everything turns all Lord of the Flies, players are suddenly looking to bash piggy's head in.

Hilarity Ensues

I'm pretty sure this is what I would do if my future self came to me asking for help.

"(I wear a) tight black leather outfit. And much bigger boobs. They gave me these things that looked like chicken fillets. The director said, 'I'm gonna be honest, I like girls with big boobs,' and I don't have them so we made them bigger. At least he's honest. But I was mildly offended."~Sienna Miller

"Everybody here laughed because they know I would NEVER say that to an actress... I guess the costume department gave her a tight fitting bra, but no one gave her rubber breasts or whatever. It is 100 percent Sienna Miller." ~ Director Steven Sommers

Lets see... Steven Sommers has written and directed crap like the Mummy and Van Helsing while Sienna Miller is best know for hooking up with Jude Law and Balthazar Getty while both were married at the time. Lets call this one a draw... and an excuse to post pics of the Baroness washing Cobra Commander's car and doing his laundry.

I thought I told you honkeys from the CIA....

The redband trailer for Black Dynamite is equal parts awesome and NSFW. On the crank 2 scale of Movie Trailers this one gets 4 jolts to the heart.

80s Artists #3

The tag at the top of my blog says "art" in it so I figured it was about time to talk art. This is the third part in a 6 part series on my favorite comic artist of the 1980s (what you thought I'd be comparing monet and manet?).
#3 John Buscema

John Buscema wrote the book on drawing comics. Well actually he drew the book on drawing comics, Marvel's "How to draw comics the Marvel way". There's not much to add after that. He was a master storyteller and had a style and technique that became definitive of what Marvel comics were about.
Marvel has at least one "Visionaries" book with his work. You can also find some really great Conan tpbs he drew and some really excellent Avengers books. The Mansion seige saga being maybe his most well know and would be the first I'd recommend.

Homeless man does good

"dude, you holdin'?"

Hey when did this happen? is reporting that Celtic are days away from signing man-hobo Sacha Kljestan. This would be a freaking great move! I've been real impressed with Sacha's play the last couple of USMNT games. Poor facial hair decisions aside, I think he has a lot of potential and could be key to the gringos chances in 2010. A couple years in the rough and tumble the SPL provides, mixed with a couple chances at champions league beatdowns, might just be what the doctor ordered.

In short Dinosaur Pope approves this move.

Least surprising development ever

I just had to steal this picture from the spoiler. Is anyone really surprised the Kaka to Man City deal fell through? Anytime you start hearing 100 million pound transfer rumors you know it's a bunch of garbage.

3 quick thoughts on the deal that never happened.

1. A team would be full of idiots to pay that much money to any one player. If you think Man City is just one Kaka or Ronaldo away from winning the Champions League, you need to stop playing Football Manager '09 and spend some time outside. And if you're going to pay 100 million pounds for a player, anything less than winning the Champions League is a complete fail.

2. A player would be an idiot to agree to that kind of transfer. Imagine the pressure of not only being the highest priced player in the world, but the pressure of trying to keep an asstastic Man City team out of the relegation zone. Sounds like a loads of fun to me. Also from what I've heard Manchester is a much nicer city than Milan.

3. Soccer fans everywhere would be idiots to support this kind of move. You know why I buy all my soccer jerseys straight from China off of E-bay? Because that 100 million pounds comes from somewhere. It's like trickle down economics, except instead of minimum wage jobs us average joes are left with higher ticket prices. And it doesn't stop at ticket prices. Shoes go up in cost. Jerseys not only go up in cost but they change every year so you need to keep buying new ones. Advertising on TV becomes more obtrusive, in fact everything fun about being a soccer fan gets a little less enjoyable. It's the reason the terrorists hate us.

work in progress

So a couple months ago I made a deal with myself that I was going to finish at least one picture a month. I know, I know, such lofty goals. So the way I figure it, I have about 10 days left to finish this picture. I've already transferred it over to a clean sheet of paper, so inking it in 10 days doesn't scare me that much. It's probably only 5 or 6 total hours of work. What scares me is the fact that this picture is screaming for some color and I have some brand new markers that really need to be broken in. If the markers work out for me, maybe I'll finish up this nifty little Rorschach picture just in time for the Watchmen movie.

Holy Non-Event,Batman!

Do you remember where you were when Batman died? If you were anything like me you were sitting behind a computer saying "what they killed batman, when did that happen?".

Last Week DC comics finally put the final nail in the coffin on the Batman RIP storyline. You know the one that started last May in Batman and somehow finished last week in the pages of Final Crisis (huh?). I'm sure you saw all the media coverage of the big event, you know right after the bazillion news stories on the very special Spider-man Obama issue. Cause if there's something you can count on the main stream press to cover, it's comic books.

Seriously could DC have screwed this up more? When they killed Superman it was everywhere, even when Marvel Comics decided to put down Steve Rogers, the original Captain America, it was on the front page of USA Today. And lets face it, Captain America is great but he's no Batman. Someone at DC needs to get it together. No one but the hardest core of DC zombies thinks they're making the right editorial decisions these days. The house that Superman built deserves better.

RIP Ricardo Montalban, your overacting and awesomely manly bare chest will be missed.

The nerds won, just give up now

When on earth did this happen? Slave Girl Leia wasn't enough for all the convention going dorks out there. Now it's all about slutty stormtroopers?

This offends me on so many levels....

...yes all those levels are related to the fact that there were no women stormtroopers!


Is Batman wearing corrective shoes?

Is the New York Comic Con the official start of the comic book convention season? Is there a comic book convention season? Will I go to this years Emerald City Comic Convention? Who really cares? here's some hot chicks and losery looking guys at conventions. Weee!

Do they just hand out leia outfits to the first 30 girls that show up?

That outfit looks impractical for fighting crime.

Yes it's legal

it's legal, and I'm totally trying it in my next co-rec game.

80's Artists #2

The tag at the top of my blog says "art" in it so I figured it was about time to talk art. This is the first part in a 6 part series on my favorite comic artist of the 1980s (what you thought I'd be comparing monet and manet?).

#2 Art Adams
Art Adams was one of those artists that I never paid much attention to while I was reading comics in the 80s. Frankly, he never drew enough be really make a big splash in my little comics world. I became more familiar with his stuff after I started drawing. Like most young artists I started drawing by copying all the guys I really liked. It's one of those practices that in a way can teach you more than you would imagine. These days I can look at something Art Adams drew decades ago and recognize how influential he was because while I know I wasn't copying him, I was copying someone else that had already copied him.
He should make a dime every time Jim Lee, J. Scott Campbell, Tood McFarlane and Rob Liefeld draw anything. Look at the cover of Heroes For Hope below and tell me you haven't seen Rob Liefeld draw that same exact figure over and over and over. It doesn't matter if he calls the character Cougar, Fighting American, Prophet or Capt Geech and the shrip shack shooters, it's always a rip off of that Heroes for Hope wolverine.
So why is he number two on my list of my favorite artists of the 80s? Well it's because of how influential he was to all the artists that I loved in the 90s. It's a become a cliche, but his work really was ahead of it's time. From giant splash panels, to overly bowed legs, even those big "manga style" heads and eyes with no pupils. Every bad art cliche from the 90s that I absolutely loved, started with his run on Longshot way back in 1985.

It's tough finding a lot of Art Adam's work. After he finished the Longshot limited series, he never stayed on a book for more than a few issues. The Longshot TPB is a good place to start and I'd also recommend picking up the last few issues of the current Hulk book. After that you're going to be digging through a lot of back issue bins looking for single issues.
