Batman; Double Impact!

"hey, umm wanna sell more comics?"

Remember Double Impact? The awesome Jean Claude Van Damme vehicle of the early 90s? No well someone at DC does cause they're remaking it with Batman. Ok so they're really not, but I wanted to do a double rainbow joke here and like 30 other bloggers beat me to it.

"Starting in November, DETECTIVE COMICS, BATMAN and BATMAN AND ROBIN will feature the ongoing adventures of Dick Grayson as Batman, with Damian as Robin. Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne will take center stage in the pages of Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette's BATMAN INC. and writer/artist David Finch's BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT."

~topless robot

So there you go, two Batmans in four different monthly Batman titles, most of them written by Grant Morrison. Doesn't sound like a cash grab to me at all.

The Emmys get their Glee on

Here's the opening skit from last nights big Emmy-palooza. I gotta say Jimmy Fallon was pretty funny. Good for him.

"because now you support slavery.."

Lets face it, it's Friday and neither of us are going to put a lot of effort into this blog today. You probably didn't even read that last sentence. With that in mind, here's a comercial parody that should keep you busy for about 2 minutes. The guy says boobs a lot so I thought you'd like it.

How to Become Super Vol. I & II

You can get both of these pics in t-shirt form here. I was thinking of picking one of these designs up but they didn't have them in a tank top, and I really need to let the pythons breathe.

This is Michael Bay's fault

I've been trying to come up with something clever to say about this for the last 20 minutes but lets just cut to the quick. It's a rap song all about the Seattle Seahawks that features an Optimus Prime look-a-like called Hawktimus. It's awful in every way.

Seriously the best thing about this rap is the wheaties box that shows up around the 1:46 mark. Well that and this awesome Optimus Prime cosplay. Which coincidentaly looks like it might have been made from wheaties boxes.

thats a trim looking hedge optimus.

Whedon 'Hank Pyms' the Wasp

So Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Joss Whedon has confirmed that The Avengers will only have one female member. That means no Wasp, Ms. Marvel or Scarlet Witch. Only The Black Widow, who lets face it, is kind of a crappy Avenger. I mean if sleeping around is a power she's like Galactus but last time I checked the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe it wasn't.

Honestly I don't think this is that big of a deal if Scarlett Johansson hadn't been such a snooze in Iron Man 2. I mean this is a big budget action movie, you can't just get by on good looks.

I would like to rescind that statement

To be fair Whedon did say that Scarlett Johansson wouldn't be the only female lead in the movie, so we'll probably have someone like Pepper Potts or Sharon Carter showing up, just no other female Avengers. Which kinda sucks. Sure this borders on complaining just for complaining's sake, but it would have been nice to see an Avengers movie that didn't rely so heavy on the Big 3. But that's just one nerds opinion. I'm sure in 2012 I'll be like OMG! The avengers iz teh hotness!

Batman will always be creepy

Teh Internets as Icons

So what we have here is a picture of internet traffic using icons (or favicons). Each icon is proportional to the sum of the reach of all sites using that icon. You can go to a much much larger version, with icon legend, here on the official site.

It's kind of amazing to think that that damn Live Jasmine pop up generates more traffic than CNN or Blogger. Um.. I mean Live Jasmine, why I've never heard of that site before.

Warhammer channels its Spirts Within

Hey kids do you like Warhammer 40,000? No, well um.. here's a trailer for the new Warhammer movie. It's kinda like that Final Fantasy CGI movie no one really liked except there's far more smoke. and blood.

Speaking of Owls

For anyone that grew up with How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way, this process should look pretty familiar. "Here's half a dozen circles derp derp derp.. now here's Captain America" It's not that easy John Buscema!

Tumblr Tuesday

I've decided I need more reoccuring tropes in my blog. Zombies and Megan Fox's toe thumbs are only going to get you so far. With that in mind welcome to Tumblr Tuesday, where every tuesday we'll highlight a new and fabulous tumblr blog.

This week it's Hungover Owls.

That owl is blotto!

And there you have it, check back in next tuesday when we look at another awesome tumblr blog.

The Walking Dead Trailer

This looks awesome, I can't remember the last time I've been this excited about a new TV show. If it's a big hit maybe we'll get all kinds of awesome spin offs, like the Walking Dead; Miami or maybe The Walking Dead; NCIS. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'd rather live in a world where Mark Harmon is a zombie.

Back to the point, I'm going to have a hard time waiting until October to watch this. That's right Loren, this doesn't come out until October 31st. I think you should totally postpone the wedding.

Singer Talks, Nerd Bloggers listen

The Hellfire club sure has a weird dress code

So Bryan Singer called Harry Knowles over at Aint in cool and gave up some new details about X-Men: First Class. Of course there's no ammount of apple O's that could make me go to aint it cool, so I'll just steal from GammaSquad's recap.

•The movie takes place in the 1960s. JFK is president. This puts a new spin on Oliver Platt playing “The Man In Black”, considering that sounds like something from a JFK assassination conspiracy.
•Kevin Bacon will be playing Sebastian Shaw, leader of the New York branch of the Hellfire Club, of which Emma Frost (January Jones) will also be a member.
•Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) will be in their late 20s. Xavier will have his hair and be able to walk, but will become paralyzed during the film.
•This isn’t based on the First Class storyline in the comics. Neither Cyclops nor Jean Grey will be in this.
•Singer says the costumes will have more of a comic book feel and that director Matthew Vaughn is inspired by the era’s James Bond style gadgets


Ok, so all the casting nonsense we've been hearing about is starting to make sense. Banshee, Sebastian Shaw and Nightcrawler's dad (ugh) should all fit nicely in a movie set in the 60s. The only character that kinda feels shoehorned in is Emma Frost, but I guess someone has to wear a corset.

Just going out on a limb here but I'll bet a couple of these so called first classers will bite it in the eventual battle with the Hellfire club. Leading to the ideological split between Mags and Xavier. I'm still not sure this all of this will end of meshing with the flashback scene in X3 or with Emma Frost's quickie cameo in Wolverine but I guess it's as close as you're going to get to a cohesive X-verse with Fox at the helm.

Monday Morning Quarter-Links

Courtney Love's Tweets to Frances Bean. This is both hilarious and sad. It's hilarosad, or sadlarious.

15 classic game console design mistakes. To be fair, the intellivision had a lot more going against it than just a couple design mistakes.

15 classic PC Design Mistakes. Notice how they say PC? That's cause apple doesn't make design mistakes. What? the first one is the apple III? Does Steve Jobs know about this?

Hull problems? Not I.

I'm gonna watch some Star Trek this weekend, and aint nobody going to stop me. Unless it's my wife or my kid. Oh who am I fooling, I'll be over here watching Yo Gabba Gabba and What not to Wear if you need me.

Stormtroopers be Dancing

So here's a Stormtrooper dancing. I wasn't sure I was going to post since it's a remake of an old video that's already been around the web but then I read the Youtube description; "Following the Star Wars tradition of releasing a "Special" edition, with pointless CG effects."

Now that's just the kind of passive aggressive nerd rage I can get behind. The sad part here is that the Special edition has twice as many hits as the original. So in the end I guess Lucas was right, pass the Jar Jar flavored cool aid please.

A History of the Series of Tubes

I like these infographics. I'm not really interested in anything I can't learn in less than 5 minutes and without using pictures. I believe they call that "highbrow".

This pic was to big to format properly you're going to have to click it to read it. Trust me it's worth it. 1994 alone will blow you away.

unsexy update. Blogger is killing me today, it completely refuses to upload this picture correctly. Go see the full size deal on a much cooler blog here.

F*ck Me, Ray Bradbury

Generally speaking I try and stay away from the swears here, I mean you never know when my parents or in-laws are going to stumble across this thing (thanks for nothing facebook). But this video for the song Fuck Me Ray Bradbury was just to good to pass up.

Eva Longoria is more Popular than I had previously thought

The look on Tony Parker's face is pretty priceless.

Hump Day Links

Pervy Cat Hypnotized by Booty Shake. Now that my wife has stopped reading my blog I'm finally free to link to as many pervy cats as I can find.

Dead Wrestler of the Week; Lance Cade. This is less about Lance Cade and more about the WWF and Linda McMahon, fascinating stuff.

The 10 worst lyrics from popular rappers. Honestly, all these rappers are pretty awful, so I expected worse. Still entertaining though.

X-Men casting makes me vomit*

I haven't been following the casting news for the next X-Men movie, X-Men: First Class as closely as I probably should. That's my bad. I guess with the awfulness that was Wolverine I'm kinda leery of anymore X-men movies. Of course it's casting news like this that keeps keeping me leery:

"Jason Flemyng has had a role in every film Matthew Vaughn has directed, and now X-Men: First Class can be added to that streak. Flemyng confirmed at London’s Movie Con this weekend that he will play Azazel in the film. The character is the leader of an ancient race of demonic mutants who were cast into an alternate dimension."
~ GammaSquad

Azazel? As in Azazel, Nightcrawler's father from the God-awful storyline the Draco? The one written by the all time worst X-Men writer ever Chuck Austen? Why on earth would Vaughn and Bryan Singer (who's supposed to be co-producing this) look to anything written by Chuck Austen for inspiration?

What's next? is the Avengers movie going to star Cap-Wolf or Teen-Tony? I hear that storyline where the Wasp was turned into an actual bug was pretty popular. Lets make it happen Fox!

*it was metaphorical vomit

Soccer clubs be rich

I love the fact that While AC Milan is one of the 10 richest clubs in the world they only sell about 4,000 more tickets per game than the Seattle Sounders do. Which is still better than Juventus who I think sold less tickets than Scott Pilgrim did (hey-o!).

Fox Trot sums up my life

Now I don't cry when I see a double rainbow, but I'll make jokes about it in everyday conversations. Seriously I think I have a problem. This weekend I caught my self using the terms 'lulz' and 'smarks' while talking with some friends. Last night I barbecued and I told my wife that I heard she likes hamburgers so I put a hamburger in her hamburger.

It's taken about 15 years but the internet is finally making me a stupider person. Now off to TheDailyWhat to look for kitten videos.

ZOMG, Return of the Jedi deleted scene!

So basically 3 things happened this weekend. Juggalos attacked Tila Tequila, Soctt Pilgrim tanked at the box office, and Disney separated nerds from their cash at Star Wars Celebration V. Also they showed this deleted scene from Return of the Jedi. I guess it's kinda cool, but doesn't it just support the fact that Lucas is kind of a dick? I mean how many Star Wars boxed sets have there been and we're just seeing this now? Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if he's been sitting on a alternate ending that he'll wait to release until he needs to put a down payment for a gold plated hot tub... on the moon!

unsexy update Lucasfilm took this off youtube. I could try and find another copy somewhere but I like the unsubtle commentary implied by leaving it like this.

Paraguay's #1 fan robbed!

Larissa Riquelme, who you might remember from her natural Iphone cozy or from her pledge to run naked through the streets of Paraguay if they had won the World Cup, was Robbed! take it away Huffpo..
"Larissa Riquelme, the lingerie model whose passionate support of Paraguay during the World Cup turned heads around the world, has reportedly been robbed. According to the Brazilian network Rede Globo, the curvaceous model was assaulted in the Ipanema neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro. The assailants reportedly took a phone, passport and two digital cameras."

This is hardly a surprise when you consider where Larissa keeps her valuables. Rick Steve doesn't recommend you keep your passport on display between your giant breasts while traveling. Or maybe he does, I usually watch Samantha Brown.

Bioshock Infinite

I'll tell you a secret if you promise to keep it between the two of us. I haven't played Bioshock yet. I know, I know, I'm an awful nerd. It's extra inexcusable when you consider I've had the game for well over a year. Maybe by the time Bioshock Infinite comes out I'll have bought and ignored Bioshock 2.

Those Icelanders are at it again.

Icelandic giants and youtube sensations Stjarnan are up to their old tricks. Here after scoring a goal they do a little celebration called the human bicycle. It's not as good as the fish one they did a while ago, but it's a 1000 times better than the awful birthball celebration below.

aint that a kick to the crotch

So in case you haven't been keeping up on your WWE news lately, Linda McMahon (wife of Vince) is running for a US Senate seat in Connecticut.

I've always said the Senate needs more crotch kicking.

Well that's ruined

Curse you internet, you ruin everything!

Kids don't know what's good

I have very little doubt that this is exactly how I'm going to play with my son once he's old enough for action figures. I have some generation 1 transformers in my office at work just waiting to whoop up on some bayformers ass.

Crouch pulls a Cole

99% of english soccer players agree, this gets old fast.

To clarify, Peter Crouch is following in the footsteps of England teammate and noted scumball Ashley Cole, by cheating on his smoking hot wife. Take it away Now Magazine;
Abbey Clancy has been pictured without her engagement ring - just a day after fiance Peter Crouch was accused of cheating on her with a prostitute.

Madrid-based escort Monica Mint, 19, alleges the footballer forked out 1,000 euros [£833] to sleep with her after meeting her on a stag do in the Spanish capital last month.

Just in case you need a reminder, and lets face it you do, Peter Crouch looks like this:

He's really rocking that drummer from Hanson meets the Scarecow from the Wizard of Oz look. Not many 7 foot tall soccer "stars" can pull that off. Oh yeah here's what his fiance Abbey Clancey looks like:

One more time, goofy beanpole that has no business on the English national team:

and Abbey Clancey:

Clearly Abbey needs to put that ring back on her finger. There's no way she's doing any better than Peter "coat hanger" Crouch. I mean have you seen him do the robot? A quality guy like him is one in a million.

Leftover Links

Chicken Nugget Lover attacks drive up window. I don't not blame this lady one bit. Like the bible says let the one of us who hasn't had a McNugget craving at 6am throw the first stone (I have one of those really progressive modern translations).

John Byrne wants a Rob Liefeld Watchmen sequel. I think this is one of those ideas that's so awful it's awesome again. I'm sure that's the way Alan Moore would want it.

Sharks vs Super-Heroes. I know shark week was last week but do I really need an excuse to post this picture of Snake Eyes fighting a shark?

Video Game Consoles through the years

There is nothing I love more than retro video games, well except my family and God and stuff, but for right now lets focus on the retro video games. Here's a video showing off just about every video game system ever made in chronological order. Warning, if your waiting for your first system and it was a Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis you might want to skip ahead 10 or 15 minutes.

The Retro Avengers Trailer

The Avengers movie teaser made the rounds on the interwebs last week. I know it was just a short teaser made for Comic-con but man did it stink on ice. This is 2010.. a rotating logo and Sam Jackson voice over doesn't do it for me anymore. However, this trailer for the Avengers "premake" is most excellent.

Fat guy dances his way into traffic

I think that the music from inception really classes up this video.

YTCracker's The Link

I'm not what you would call a big fan of nerdcore rapper YTCracker. He's one of those guys that's always better when paired with another rapper, kinda like a nerdcore Nate Dogg. With that being said, this video for The Link is pretty sick. I'm willing to bet it will win a Moonman at this years MTV video awards show.

The South Park Infographic

I'll be honest I don't think I've seen a new episode of South Park in about 3 years. Still this info graphic is pretty cool (you have to click to enlarge {that's what she said}). It's kinda hard to believe South Park has been around for 13 years. Maybe some day they'll make a movie, that would be pretty sweet.

Wolverine vs T-Rex

Great art really makes you think. This piece makes me think "uh oh, that t-rex done f-ed up now".

Thursday is Lightsaber day

So here's a youtube clip of every lightsaber ignition and retraction in chronological order. It's kinda telling that there's about 3 times as much lightsaber action in Episodes 1-3 as there is in 4-6. It's almost like Lucas was half assing it and just over using all the parts "kewl" parts of the first trilogy. I know, sounds crazy doesn't it?

Swamp Shark gets all 'swampy'

God bless the fine folks at SyFy. I don't care if the last episode of Battlestar Galactica sucked. I'll forgive them a 1000 times over, as long as they keep promising to bring us gems like Swamp Shark (which btw, looks almost like a shot for shot remake of Jaws).

On a related note, remember when Kristy Swanson was hot? man that seems like forever ago.

Retro Nintendo cabinet ftw

I swear to you this is the slowest nerd news week ever. Luckily I came across this picture of awesomeness.

1. there's a lot of cash invested in this thing, seriously. Kid's got over 30 games, two advantage controllers and two max controllers? Depending on when this was made that's like 1500-2000 dollars worth of hardware and software. No wonder his parents couldn't afford outlet covers and carpet.

2. I hope this never got painted. the fact that it's over a thousand dollars worth of electronics covered in bare pressboard makes it all the more awesome.

3. the tv has knobs which means he probably had to use a UHF to RF adaptor, which nintendo didn't make and was a total pain to find.

4. those are some handsome shorts.

Simpsons did it..

So unless you live under a rock, or have a real life (which is just as bad), you know that last sunday was the day Lisa Simpson was supposed to get married. That's right, all of the sudden we're living 15 years into the future. Scary huh? Well the good people at have made a list of the 11 predictions about 2010 that the Simpsons got right. Go check it out, I'll still be here when you get back.

Dubious Achievements in Cosplay

Oh you thought the Comic-Con posts were done? Not a chance buddy, I have a folder full of these pictures and absolutely no motivation to come up with anything original. So with that in mind here's something I like to call Dubious Achievements in Cosplay. These dorks may not have had the best looking costumes but that didn't stop them from capturing the true zeitgeist of Comic-con (that being dorks in silly costumes).

Best out of Character Moment

Most sexually confusing costume

Worst use of a unitard

Best costume of 1999

Worst use of finger guns... pew pew

Worst booth babe

Worst/Best underwear malfunction

Worst/Best Crotch bulge

Best Starfleet Cruisewear (the guy in shorts, not R2)

Best use of a Bucket

Most misleading T-shirt
