Now that's a combo

I was thinking of picking up a copy of Marvel vs Capcom 3, then I saw this. There's no way I can afford a new TV every time I pull off that combo. That would be like 3 TVs.

ThunderCats Ho!

Here's the first official trailer for the new ThunderCats cartoon. I'm still not sold on Lion-O. He's a bit too Cowboy Bebop for my liking but I guess I'll wait and see. I mean it can't be worse than the new Transformers cartoon, have you seen how awful that thing looks? It makes House Party 2 look like House Party 3.

Vacationing Links

The 122 Best PC Games of the last 22 years. I can't believe Half Life 2 came out in 2004. I haven't been playing computer games for 7 years? That's amazing... and kinda sad.

The Spidey Project. So it's no big secret the Spider-man musical sucks. The Spidey Project is probably also going to suck but it's going to cost about 60 million dollars less.

Shawn Kemp Calls Blake Griffin's dunk weak. I couldn't agree more. This whole jumping over stuff nonsense has to stop. Here's hoping Blake Griffin's Kia sponsored car dunk becomes this generations Cedric Ceballos's blindfold. Seriously there's a guy in And1 that does a 720.. a 720! The best the NBA can do is a guy jumping over the hood of a car? Next time you go to work check out how tall your hood is...

Holy &*#@ Best buy sells a $700 HDMI Cable

This is not a joke, Best Buy (who's pretty well known for ripping off the tech-illiterate) has on their website a 6 foot HDMI Cable that costs $695.99. Never mind that all HDMI cables pretty much work the same, why spend 9.95 at Fry's when you can buy a cable that's eligible for 24 month financing?

The only way I can make sense of this is that Best Buy is actively trolling nerds like me... and of course it's working. Here are a few of the "most helpful" reviews on their site.

"I must say, I was a bit disappointed in this cable. I saved up for 6 months to buy it. (I work at Wendy's so I don't make a lot of money). When I first plugged it into my dvd player, I was impressed at how well it fit into the socket. It's probably from the gold plating. When I went to hook up the other end to my 36" Dynex, I was so angry to find it only had a DVI input. So I bought a DVI to HDMI adapter at Radio Shak, and was able to make it work. I couldn't really tell much of a difference between my Monster cables, but it probably just takes a while to get used to. I would recommend it to a friend."

"I was amazed this cable was still in stock. I use it to power my 14.4 inch crt because i can't afford an lcd. I was initially concerned about the cost but once i did my research and found out this cable is manufactured with the mineral "doesnotexistium" i knew i had to have one. When its not in use on my crt i use it to hold the drapes back. I have ordered 5 more. We have a lot of drapes."

I hope to God no one has ever actually bought these cables (I'm looking your way Loren) and they only exist in some sort of universe composed entirely of Internet commenters.

Apollo 18

So this trailer hit the web last week but I missed it. It looks pretty awesome. I don't think there's a better horror sub genre than space horror. Alien, Event Horizon, Pandorum, Leprechaun in space... they're all classics.

Wolverine vs The Hand

I'm not really sure what this is. I'm sure it's wolverine fighting some ninjas in a real artsy kinda way but past that I don't have a clue. I think it's french, it looks french to me.

Indonesian Supergirl is rip-off-tastic

Anytime I complain about how awful something like the Wonder Woman TV show sounds remind me of this video. It's 6 minutes of shakey butt-cam footage of the Indonesian Supergirl movie. Why is she wearing a Spider-Woman costume? If you have to ask you really can't handle the answer.

New Thor Trailer

So here the new Thor trailer. I think this is the best stuff we've seen from the movie so far. Also I'm pretty sure I now have a man crush on Chris Hemsworth. Something about the beard and the accent... wait, I mean Natalie Portman what a hottie! whew that was close..

I for one welcome our new Ken Jennings overlords

The Dead Island Trailer made me cry

Seriously this is the worst thing ever. It's right up there with the end of the Notebook and the part in Iron Giant where the robot says "superman".

I'm going on vacation next week and I swear if there's a zombie outbreak while I'm having fun in the sun I'm going to be very cross.

and we have a Wonder Woman

So according to both my facebook page and imdb we have a Wonder Woman. It's Adrianne Palicki who you may know from such shows as Friday Night Lights, Supernatural and Lone Star. I emphasize the "you may know" because I've never seen any of those shows. Also according to imdb she was runner up for homecoming queen.

I guess this is big news, but I'm having a hard time getting worked up for it. I mean yeah it's Wonder Woman and a cute girl but what are the real odds that this show actually makes it on the air? It has been reported that in the pilot script Wonder Woman uses the phrase "you go girl" and at one point has an ice cream pajama party with her best friend. That's right a pajama party. The same Wonder Woman that just a couple years ago did this...

...has a pajama party. Whatevers, it's just a stupid TV show. I guess I should be glad she doesn't have a monkey butler or a wacky gay neighbor (wait seriously, there's a gay neighbor? /facepalm).

Here's some pictures of Ms. Palicki. You'll have to use your imagination and pretend she's wearing hot pants and a bustier, the invisible jet is optional.

These are the Legos you're looking for

I never thought I would use the "art" tag on pictures of Star Wars Legos but damn... These are just the awesomest thing ever. Photographer Avanaut just killed it with this photoset.

Thank goodness I didn't see this before I went to Toys R Us last weekend. Instead of leaving with swimming diapers and a new bathmat I would've spent a thousand dollars on Star Wars Legos. I'm sure I could've figured out a way to fashion them into diapers.

Check out more pictures at the chive

Elementary my dear Links

Watson Robot Ties at Jeopardy. This was pretty interesting but I think I'd still rather see DJ Roomba show up on Dancing with the Stars.

The Rock returns to the WWE. I can't believe I was watching robots play Jeopardy last night while the Rock was on Raw. Thank goodness one of those ghetto HD networks replays Raw on the weekends.

Hands on Preview of Duke Nukem Forever. This is still all a joke right? I mean there's no way they ever release this thing is there? I feel like if I play both Diablo 3 and Duke Nukem Forever this year it will cause a tear in the space time continuum.

Spider-Man gets a new name/publicity picture. They're going to call the new movie The Amazing Spider-Man. There I just saved you the time and effort of clicking on the link. You owe me big time.

Personally, I always use the falcon technique. If you ever get caught you have plausible deniability. "Really officer, it was the Falcon's idea!"

I'd like to hear from Sideshow Mel

So if you felt a disturbance in the force last night it was probably just everyone on twitter demanding to know just who the hell are Arcade Fire and why are they winning all the Grammys. The Internet outrage was bad enough that someone started a tumblr blog dedicated to tweets and facebook posts called Who is Arcade Fire?!? It's worth a couple minutes of you time.

And as a side note, I'm so much of a Hipster that I totally knew who Arcade Fire were and had already considered them overrated way back in 2007. Also I was surprised to here Eminem was still making albums.

Avengers Trailer

So here's a fan made trailer for the Avengers movie that's due in 2012. Sure it's just clips of Thor, The incredible Hulk, Captain America and Iron Man 2 edited together but it's a thousand times better than the Avengers movie they made with Ralf Fiennes and Uma Thurman. Seriously Ralf Fiennes was the worst Captain America ever. Who decided he should have an umbrella and not a sword? Communists right?

Wayne Rooney likes to ride that Bicycle

This is not a bad way to win a game. I mean it's not as cool as that one time I scored a goal after the keeper had fallen down, but hey they can't all be magic.

Howlin' For You

So this is a fake movie trailer which is really a video for the Black Key's latest song Howlin' For You. I guess the song is ok, and the fake movie looks interesting. The important part here is that it stars Diora Baird and Tricia Helfer. You're welcome Cory.

Remi Cart 2

Here's notorious french prankster Remi Gaillard revisiting his youtube-ariffic Mario Cart in real life skit.

Remi Gaillard is about the only cool thing the French have ever given us, other than fries and kissing, oh and Jacques Cousteau and Eva Green. I guess they also invented hot air balloons and pencils. Ok France you win this round.

It's Magneto's back... woohoo

Supposedly the first trailer for X-Men: First class was going to hit the web today. Instead all we got was this picture of Mags in a super shiny room. I'm guessing it's Cerebro or maybe the first danger room. Honestly Fox, you're not giving me much to work with here. Would it kill you to release more January Jones as Emma Frost pictures?

Update! here's the trailer. Jeez what took you so long Fox?

Captain America F Yeah!

Yeah, so I guess we all should have seen this coming.

Links, now with 25 percent more links

Fox News Declares Bulletstorm "Worst Game Ever". I can't see anything about this game without thinking about the Simpsons episode with Bonestorm.

The Best of Hipster Little Mermaid. My favorite part is when they made fun of hipsters.

Rooster Kills man at cockfight.Finally little Jerry Sienfeld gets his revenge.

9 Celebrities who hated Scientology before it was cool. You know it's bad when a guy who wears sequined jumpsuits and eats fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches can see through your BS.

Spider-Man, really?

This is stupid.

Allow me to elaborate. The black and white costumes look terrible. The new logo makes no sense if there's still four of them. Why replace one smart-ass man child in The Human Torch with another one in Spider-Man (who is already in the Avengers)? Mr Fantastic looks like he just smelled a fart. Do I really need to go on?

update, seattle washington: This is artwork for the upcoming book FF, which stands for Future Foundation not the Fantastic Four. Also I've heard Hickman has been doing a bang up job with the Fantastic Four lately and I'm eagerly looking forward to picking up some trades. It still looks like Reed is trying to figure out who delt it.


I'll be honest I blew through all my good stories yesterday. Here's the Simpsons/McBain supercut from last week.

I guess this is the part where I go off about how The Simpsons sucks these days but I just don't have the energy anymore. It's the equivalent of ranting about how awful the Star Wars prequels were. It's never going to change anything and no one is really going to argue the point. I guess the lesson is things should never change... hmmm that seems like a really crappy lesson.

11 year old boy pwns moms debit card

Here's a lesson for you parents. Don't ever give your kid your credit card. Here come the blockquotes!

A desperate mother has condemned Microsoft after her 11-year-old son racked up a £1,000 debt on her debit card - through his Xbox. Brendan Jordan racked up a bill of £1,082.52 on his Xbox without realising all the purchases were being charged to his mum Dawn Matthews' card. The schoolboy made the payments to buy accessories and new games on his console after it saved the details of a previously registered card.

Single mum-of-two Dawn, 37, from Strood, Kent, has now complained to Microsoft but claims the computer giant is ignoring her. She said:

"When I put my card details in 18 months ago I thought it was just for his membership to play online with his friends."

"I work two jobs just to look after my family and pay the bills so I cannot afford all these extortionate charges. A thousand pounds isn't that much to people like Bill Gates, but for a single mum it is a lot of money that I don't have."

Dawn wants her experience to be a lesson to other parents and blames Microsoft for making it 'too easy' for her son to spend the money. She said:

"Brendan is 11 and knows his times tables but it was only when I explained to him that he realised how much money he had spent. When I showed him he burst into tears. He unplugged the Xbox and said he didn't want it anymore."


So to be fair and all unsnarky like I totally did something similar when I was a teenager. I had just received a super rad 14.4kbs modem for Christmas and I convinced my mom to buy a AOL subscription. I think back then they were only giving away 10 free hours when you signed up. It was a time when no one was offering dial up plans with unlimited hours.

Within a month I had racked up something like $100 in extra hours. I felt so bad, I had warned my mom that I thought I might have gone slightly over the 10 free hours, but I had no idea I blew through that many so fast. Of course in my defense do you have any idea how long it took to download that one Cindy Crawford picture with a 14.4 modem and an aol account?

days, the answer is days...

Superman Classic

So as long as we're talking Superman lets take a look at this fan made animated short. It's pretty outstanding, especially when you consider this was made in someones spare time. Ok so that guy is a professional animator at Disney, still it's not like when I go home from work I type up a bunch of TPS reports just for fun. Wait a minute... did I have a point there?

Is Lindsay Lohan playing Supergirl?

Short answer, no. Long answer, no sir/ma'am.

So someone somewhere reported that Zack Snyder was looking at casting Lindsay Lohan for some undisclosed major role in the new Superman movie. Since they just cast Lois Lane this has everyone (ie. one blogger) wildly speculating that they're talking about Supergirl. Which is so stupid we're not even going to talk about it any further. What we will talk about is Power Girl.

I mean why not, right? From what I hear the villain in Zack Snyder's Superman is going to be Zod. So I guess after Bryan Singer remade Superman I, Snyder has logically chosen to remake Superman II. In 8 years I'm sure we'll be eagerly awaiting Darren Aronofsky's reboot staring Chris Tucker as Richard Pryor, but I digress.

Not that I think Supergirl is going to be in this new remake but if you are going to make a Superman movie, and you want to shoehorn in a Kryptonian lady, why not use Power Girl? Sure she's less well known as Supergirl, but she's also less iconic. Meaning you have a lot more leeway with the character than you would Supergirl. She could be a villain, a love interest, a pawn in some diabolical scheme by Brainiac, your options are endless. Plus she could be played by Diora Baird, amirite?

60 percent of the time...

Seriously, this pick up line is gold. Mike, you should totally use it on the next chick you meet on the bus.

Is Robin in The Dark Knight Rises?

Short answer no with a but, long answer no with me rolling on the floor laughing and pointing at you. However this is the internet, where every rumor gets it's 15 minutes, so lets play along.
according to Michigan’s WILX: “They looked at the Ledges as well as a water treatment plant located inside the park. Sources say the area is being considered as a hideout for Batman sidekick Robin.”

“They,” of course, being location scouts for The Dark Knight Rises. This sounds pretty airtight to me, since a well-known part of the Robin mythos is that he lives in a water treatment plant. Is this who Joseph Gordon-Levitt is going to be playing?


So there you are, proof positive that someone heard from someone else that knows Robin is going to be in the Dark Knight Rises.

If by some remote chance they do shoehorn Robin in, I'm hoping it's the Stephanie Brown/Spoiler version. Stephanie Brown kicks ass.

Kramerica: The Trailer

Remember when Michael Richards wasn't all racist and stuff? Man those were good days. Anyhoo here's a fan made trailer for the "movie" Kramerica, which is all about the rise and fall of Kramerica industries of course.

Star Wars Begins

Ok this is the coolest effin thing ever. It's a fan made documentary about Star Wars. On one hand I'm surprised that something so awesome was made by a fan and not lucasfilms but then again if it was made by lucasfilms they'd have left out all the interesting stuff. This is just the first part, it's about 120 minutes long so hopefully you have a comfy chair. Honestly this is the first time I've ever wished I had one of those roku boxes with youtube streaming for the tv.

The Captain America Trailer

Ok so Captain America looks good, really good. I mean my wife didn't seem to care that much. I think her exact words were "it's not current Captain America, it's Captain America from World War Two". That was right before she turned it to the Kitten Half Time show.

update, seattle washington: My wife didn't really turn it to the kitten half time show. We watched the entire superbowl. Here's a close up of the Red Skull.

seriously.. how awesome is that?

Friday Night Links

Interview with the owner of Lobster Dog. I won't spoil the interview for you but it has a very crying game like twist. Wait, that totally spoils it. oh well, still a good read.

Wonder Woman TV Pilot script sucks. I'm shocked. I just assumed when I heard that David Kelly was producing it that it would be awesome. Or at the very least that a unisex bathroom would be involved.

Deconstructing Lichtenstein.Here's the whole story of how in the 1960s Roy Lichtenstein copied other artists work and made millions. USA USA USA!

Just when I think I'm out they pull me back in

I just saw some of the newest pictures of Chris Evans and Captain America (at of all places) and they look awesome. I just don't know what to make of this movie. Every interview I hear with the director makes me wonder why he even wanted to make a Captain America movie in the first place. I wrote this movie off weeks ago, but then I see pictures like these..

Seriously Marvel stop teasing me like this. Just let me know, is this going to suck or not? You can be honest with me, I swear I won't tell a soul.

Update, seattle washington: I just saw this picture over at filmdrunk. I now want to have this movies babies.
