Fans make the best only Wonder Woman movies

I've mentioned it a thousand times here. DC comics and Warner Brothers failure to move forward on a Wonder Woman movie (or decent TV show) is redonkulous. It's like they're afraid of money. We're living in a world where Marvel/Disney is making a 100+ million dollar movie that stars a talking racoon and DC is afraid that Wonder Woman's amazon by way of greek mythology backstory is too confusing for viewers.

Anyway, this fan film looks pretty cool but there's bit too much slow mo for me. Who directed this John Woo?

Not Half Life 3

Valve made the last of their big announcements last week and it wasn't Half Life 3. It wasn't even Half Life 2: Episode 3. It was this ugly ass controller for their upcoming console/PC Steam Machines. I don't want to tell Valve how to do their business but come on, no one is going to use this. They're just going to keep using Xbox 360 controllers because even with the janky d-pad it's still the best controller out there. No one is going to use the buttonless monstrosity. It's like the Kinnect for your thumbs.

Captain Kirk's top 10 fighting moves

I apologize as I'm super late in posting this. This hit the web months ago but somehow I lost it in my bookmarks. Still if you've somehow missed it, it's worth checking out.

I've got to say in the debate of Kirk vs Picard this really helps swing the pendulum Kirk's way. I mean you're never going to see a top ten fighting moves of Captain Picard. Maybe a top 10 list of the ways Riker sits in a chair, but no fighting moves.

Ewok Village Lego Set unboxing

My son's birthday is about a month away which is both cool and annoying. Annoying because I have to figure out what we're going to do as far as a party goes. He's been invited to a couple cool birthday parties this summer and the pressure to throw a good one is on the grow. You have any idea how expensive it is to rent out a bouncy gym for 2 hours? Hella, that's how expensive.

The fun part is that daddy gets to go toy shopping without mom being all like "he doesn't need any new toys" or "that's not for him, it's for you". I'm thinking something in the Lego Star Wars line. This Ewok Village set is probably a little advanced for a 4 year old but who cares? Look at all the mini-figs it comes with!

Montréal Comic Con - Cosplay Music Video

Montreal Comic Con was a thing that happened while I was at home playing Mr Mom. BTW, Mr Mom is the WORST game ever but then again when has a game based on a movie ever been good?

Here's a pretty cool video highlighting some of the better cosplay from said convention. Fair warning, there's a guy in here dressed up as Ace Ventura that is very punchable.

Tribe One - The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe From A to Z

Here's my favorite rapper of this morning Tribe One and the video to his song The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe From A to Z. It's rad on several levels the first of which is that it's an Homage to an old Blackalicious song.

The First rule of Polish Fight Club is..


The Polska Liga Walk Rycerskich is some sort of medieval fight club/reality tv show from Poland. It's pretty much all 12 year old Kevin ever wanted from life. How long do we have to wait for SyFy to rip this off? 6 months tops, right? I'd like it hosted by Brent Spiner if possible.


BatDad Harassing his Wife and Kids

This youtube clip of a dad harassing his family in a Batman mask is actually a compilation of vine videos, which is kinda silly when you think about it.

He might not be the Batman his family deserves but he's definitely the Batman his family needs.

Pajama Links

Valve announces free operating system SteamOS. It's linux based and it's primarily a streaming service designed for living rooms. Supposedly they already have some big name publisher and games lined up. I'll eat my hat if on Wednesday they don't announce Half-Life 3 or at the very least Half Life 2: Episode 3.

I'm not 100% sure this is the game changer the internet is making it out to be or if this is just away for Valve to push Steam onto smart TVs and Roku like devices.

I Sold Too Many Copies of GTA V To Parents Who Didn't Give a Damn. Ugh parents are the worst. Seriously, I let my kid play a lot of video games and watch a lot of cartoons and youtube clips on line but I'm always paying attention to what he's watching and if it's inappropriate I steer him somewhere else. I just can't fathom the kind of disengagement that would lead to a parent thinking it's ok for a 12 year old to play any Grand Theft Auto game.

The Cat(woman)’s Pajamas - Yes, You Can Now Go To Bed As Catwoman. I'm totes getting this for my wife for Christmas. In semi-related news on the evening of December 25th I will be sleeping on the couch.

Ten DC Characters Who Will Never Be Seen in Live-Action. JK, Wonder Woman isn't on the list. But she should be. Marvel comics is making a movie about an anamorphic racoon with a giant gun before DC can get around to putting together an honest effort on a Wonder Woman movie.

My guess is that if Superman/Batman is successful DC will roll out most of the Justice League in a similar fashion. A Batman movie with Green Arrow in it. A Superman movie with Wonder Woman. A team up movie with Flash and Batman and Green Lantern.. Essentially they're too scared to have another Green Lantern flop on their hands soeverything will be tied to one of the two successes they've had in the last decade.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is my next purchase

For the last week my twitter machine is 95% people talking about how awesome GTA V is. The other 5% is people talking about Breaking Bad. I'd like to pick up GTA V but there's really no point. All of my video game time is spent playing with my son, which means I'm all Lego Star Wars, Lego Batman 2 and Lego Harry Potter (in that order).

The good news is that as much as I would like to sit down for 10 hours straight playing GTA V, I really like the Lego games. The bad news is I've played the Rebel Base mission on Lego Star Wars so many times I'm pretty sure I could do it blindfolded. Anyway, Lego Marvel Super Heroes comes out in like a month. I'm pretty sure it's what Logan is getting for his birthday, yay me.

GWARbage Links

10 Amazing Man-made Substances. I'm not lying, I've been very tempted to order a can of this liquid glass waterproofing stuff. Just Look at how clean that shoe is. LOOK AT IT!

Navy Yard shooting shows need for video game registry, not gun control. Says that girl who looked good in a bikini on Survivor. Seriously, this is one of the dumbest things you'll read all day. Truth is more people are playing violent video games then they ever have and violent crime in the United States is at its lowest rate ever. Yes violent nutjobs are attracted to violent video games but the idea that they're making normal people violent is absurd and a huge smokescreen from politicians sucking at the teet of the big gun lobby.

Sex Panther Cologne. Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good.

Gas Powered Surfboard can hit 35mph. If the zombie apocalypse ever happens I'm going to find me one of these gas powered surfboards and high tail it to Guam. Yes it's a terrible idea but who cares? Gas powered surfboard baby!

Fans petition for Gwar to replace Bruno Mars at Super Bowl halftime. LOL, best half time show ever. True Story time: Where I work one of our garbage cans is marked "GWARbage". Whenever I see that can I smile.

A Capella Science: Bohemian Gravity

Here's string theory explained via a cappella cover of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. I appreciate this one a couple different levels. The main one is that Freddie Mercury actually used multiple layers of his own vocal tracks for the studio version of Bohemian Rhapsody. So not only is the science sound, the musical theory is too.

To quote one George Costanza "I'm back baby, I'm back!"

You Are Not Going Out Dressed Like That

If things go as planned my wife and I will be having a little baby girl this week. Sorry but you're going to have to find another site to keep you busy for at least 3 minutes a day. I recommend Miley Twerking On Things We Should Talk About.
