Your snowman sucked...

...because it wasn't anywhere near as awesome as this SnowR2-D2. I mean look at this thing, it's gotta be 6 feet tall. If you could rig it to shoot a lightsaber out it's dome Id marry the thing (I have no idea what that means).

3D in 3D.. in 3d

I'm going to wait for it to come out on DVD.

Jingle links all the way

32 Quotes to troll Geeks. 32 of these seemed a bit much, but there's at least 10 good ones.

How Different age groups celebrate Christmas. This is so true, having a kid this time of year is awesome sauce.

This issue a member of the Fantastic 4 dies. I'm guessing it's HERBIE.

Cleveland is more fun in the Offseason

What you see above is a real picture of Progressive Field (home of the Cleveland Indians) as it currently stands, a bad ass snow park!

"As part of what the team calls Snow Days, the site’s centerpieces are a 10-lane tubing hill named the batterhorn that stretches from the middle of the bleachers into right field, and a quarter-mile ice skating track called the frozen mile — the first of its kind in the United States, the Indians say — that zips past the warning track, second base, the bullpens and underneath the bleachers."

via the NYTimes

Now maybe all this Christmas spirit (ie egg nog) is clouding my judgment, but that sounds awesome! I love sledding but hate driving like 3 hours up into the mountains to go do it. I like the idea of sledding across the street from like four starbucks and possibly a strip club. Who am I kidding, it's Cleveland. There's probably four strip clubs and one starbucks.

More like Footbrawl.. amirite?

If the Lingerie football league is going to gain some respectability they're going to have to do something about the fighting. Like maybe institue a penalty box... or a jello pit.

btw, is that head coach Busta Rhymes?

Alf hates black people

Hey kids remember way back in the late 90s when everyone was downloading that Thundercats video where Lion-o and Panthra were swearing? This is kind of like that, except with Alf.. and more racism.

Here's a picture of the cast of Community drawn as the Avengers. There's not a whole lot more to add... umm, did you see the Christmas Special? ... I thought it was alright, I mean it was no paintball or blanket fort episode.

That's not how you drive in the snow

Even for a random blog like this, this is pretty random. Here's a bunch of idiots that don't know how to drive in the snow. Isn't property damage hilarious!?

Now that's how you sell a car

Now I don't hate the French as much as some americans, but before today I sure as hell wasn't buying a car from them. After today? Well I'm still probably not buying a Renault, but I do appreciate their advertising a bit more.

The 7 best Christmas presents I ever received as a kid


Robotix are a criminally underrated toy from the 80s. My parents got me the big set which came with like 5 motors, a huge battery pack and the switch pad you see above. You could make all kinds of crazy toy eating robots with one of these.

GI Joe Killer WHALE

If you really wanted to get the most out of your Joes you needs some kind of huge vehicle or playset. The one I had was the Killer WHALE, it held something like 9 figures, and had all kinds of cool moving pieces. The only thing I hate about it now is that if you want to buy one now it's like 200 dollars on ebay.


Kids these days don't know how lucky they are with their DSIs and Sega Game Gears (they still make those right?). Back in the day this Zaxxon table top arcade game was the coolest thing in portable gaming. It had an LED display that was pretty craptastic but was still a huge upgrade from those black and white tiger electric handhelds that were everywhere in the 80s.

A-Team Rough Riders

Sometimes a simple toy is the best toy. Rough Riders were little cars that ran on a single AA battery. Most had two exciting modes of action, forwards and stop. The real fancy ones like the A-team set I received had a reverse. The best part about Rough Riders is that with them anything from a bathroom floor to a kitchen table became a sweet rally course.

Bard's Tale III

Ok so technically speaking I bought Bard's Tale III myself at a Babbages in Joplin Missouri, but I did it with Christmas money so it totally counts. The thing that was so memorable was that I bought it while I was on Christmas vacation 2000 miles away from my beloved Apple II. By the time I actually got to play the game I had memorized the instructions and the map front to back.


Again not technically a gift for me, this was a gift for the entire family. The TI-99 was my Dad's last grasp at staying ahead of the technology curve. It was pretty much all blinking 12:00s on the VCR from this point on.

As far as I can remember my dad never rocked a yellow headband but I'm positive I had that pink sweater.

Lego Space Buggy

This was the most elaborate Lego set my parents ever bought for me. I remember that it felt like it took weeks to put together right, which probably meant it took like 20 minutes. This space buggy set became the base for all my Star Wars and Star Trek lego adventures.

I can't believe how spoiled kids are these days with all the officially licensed stuff Lego makes. I think I'm going to teach my kid some kind of crappy lesson by making him watch me play with his new Lego AT-AT.

Nick Cage would've been the greatest Superman In the history of ever

So as anyone that goes to a comic book shop weekly can tell you, Nic Cage was almost Superman. Back in the early 'aughts Tim Burton was signed on to make a Superman movie written by Kevin Smith with Cage as the star. The above video is a test run at the suit our beloved Mr Cage would have rocked.

Most net nerds are claiming that the above video is proof that Superman Returns could've been way worse. I think they're all wrong. Superman Returns was boooooring, (in fact it's the one superhero movie my wife absolutely refuses to watch a second time) but it could have been super awesomely bad. I mean which would you rather see, Brandon Routh's sulking emo Superman or Nic Cage's sparkly figure skating Superman dressed in a bear suit running around punching ladies yelling about bees? As usual, I vote bees.

Han definitely shot first

I'm not sure what Lucasarts was thinking when they put Han killing Chewie in the new Force Unleashed video game. They're probably smoking the same weed everyone in Leavenworth is smoking.

Leavenworth in the heezy

Here's a tourism video from the sleepy Bavarian town of Leavenworth. It involves a rapping nutcracker, dancing beer maidens and the phrase "juicy like a brawt". I'm not sure what any of it means, but I can tell you this. They must have fantastic weed in Leavenworth.

69 seconds of zombies getting jacked up

Here you go, every zombie death in the first season of The Walking Dead. I was going to make a self deprecating joke here but my wife is sitting over my shoulder really pushing for a sex joke. 69... teeheehee

Mass Effect 3 Trailer

Holy ass, this looks awesome. Of course it reminds me that I never played Mass Effect 2. Maybe I can pick it up used at Gamestop for cheap. Then by the time I finish it Mass Effect 4 will be out and I can get 3 for cheap. Oh who am I kidding? Battlefield 2 has the keys to my soul.

Lego Black Ops

While not 100 percent true to the game, I feel like this video captures the spirit of playing Call of Duty: Black Ops on-line. Especially when that one freaking camper is hiding behind the door. ARGH I hate that!

Old Thor Trailer is new again

So this weekend the new Thor trailer dropped. It's essentially the same thing we saw at SDCC, with a couple more lighting effects thrown into the mix. It still looks great, especially when you compare it to the goofy mess of the Green Lantern trailer.

Did you know they're working on a Top Gun sequel? Is it to much to ask for that it stars Lobster Dog?

This is easily the nerdiest thing you'll see today. Unless you're coming over later to play Call of Duty. I'm running by the comic book shop this afternoon so we'll have plenty to read!

Hugh Jackman, still boxing that robot

I can't believe this is a real movie. That being said, I totally want to see it.

Transformers 3 trailer

Ok, this doesn't actually look that bad. Probably because America's space program kicked ass in the 60s, seriously what happened to us America? We used to go to the moon, now all we do is repair the Hubble every couple months. You changed..

.. btw, how deep is that robot's eye socket? Has Michael Bay ever seen a camera lens? I don't remember my camcorder having that many gears.

Justice League Movie News

No you're not looking at the cast of some fan made JLA movie, it's another superhero porno. I swear there's more superhero porn movie news than actual superhero movie news these days.

For this go round the porno guys are taking on the entire JLA. I guess they decided that Aquaman or Green Lantern weren't popular enough to support their own parody. Of course the obvious down side to doing a JLA movie like this is that there are way more dudes than chicks in the JLA. I mean really if you only have one girl what's the difference between this and the 2 Wonder Woman pornos they've already announced?

Bleeding Cool has more pictures, they're mostly safe for work. mostly..

2 Minutes from Star Blazers

Argh! Why did I take Spanish in high school instead of Japanese? You know how many times I've been to mexico? Once, and everyone there spoke english. No one was impressed that I knew how to ask for directions to the shoe store.

Not the Bees!

I was about to post a video of a high school football player who after scoring a touchdown gets an unsportsmanlike penalty because he took a knee and pointed to God, but come on did you see all those bees?

I swear every time I see a bee in my house I think this is happening to me. I'll listen to the walls trying to find the hive and everything. Of course the only thing I ever hear is my evil twin locked in the attic. Quiet up there Hugo, I'm trying to play call of duty!

What the hell is going on with the Walking Dead?

So I'm reading an article over at io9.com about how much the last episode of The Walking Dead the TV show deviates from the Walking Dead the comic book. It was a good read, full of nerdy hand wringing (the comment section was full of helpful suggestions on how they were screwing everything up). It's been a couple years since I read the first few TPBs so honestly I couldn't remember a lot of specifics on how the show was different.

Then I load back up the front page, look for some new articles and see a report that Frank Darabont has fired the entire writing staff for The Walking Dead. Presumably to hire some of the commenters from the previous article.

Now I'm not ready to hit the panic button just yet but this does seem like some interesting news. Conventional wisdom would say that having a dedicated writing staff could help keep each episode consistant with the last (and the comic), something you know nerds like me care about. However, maybe the 70+ issues of the comic already provides for some consistancy. I can't imagine any freelance writer is going to try and invent the wheel in a single episode. Plus you still have Durabont at the helm.

I know the show seems to have veered away from the comic quite a bit in the last couple episodes but you have to keep in mind that when the season shot they only were given 6 episodes by AMC. That wasn't a huge vote of confidence. In an article on the show in last weeks EW Durabont said that he wanted to make sure that this season didn't end in a typical TV season ending cliffhanger. I assume that decision was made because they wanted to make sure the 6 episodes would stand on their own as a story.

I'm still high on the show, let the nerdier nerds than I complain about the shows direction. I'm just here for the zombies.
