The Cat-Piloted Decoy Chewbacca Halloween Costume

I have very little to say about this other than it is hilarious.

X-Men: Days of Future Past, the present trailer

Here's the first of what I'm sure will be many trailers for X-Men: Days of Future Past. From what I've been told this is the same trailer that was shown at SDCC this summer just with a little extra post-production rubbed on it. No sentinels yet or anything.

For the uniformed Days of Future Past is one of the more iconic storylines from the 1980s X-Men comic books. It revolved around Kitty Pryde traveling to the future where she finds an apocalyptic wasteland where most of the X-Men are dead and the rest of the worlds mutants are hunted by giant purple robots. It's really the perfect storyline to lift if you're going to try and shoehorn all the stars of the original X-Men trilogy and X-Men: First Class.

Oh there will be major differences that will get all the nerds huffing and puffing but that's just par for the course with Fox. As long as this isn't another X-Men: The Last Stand I think we'll all be ok.

THE Ohio State Marching Band Dinosaur

If you're one of those weirdos that watches college football on the weekends maybe you've already seen this video of the Ohio State Marching band and their tribute to movies that includes a dinosaur eating a guy. However if you aren't here's a video of the Ohio State Marching band and their tribute to movies that includes a dinosaur eating a guy.

Moar Links

Long Lost LaserDisc Found, Features Behind-The-Scenes Star Wars Footage. Crazy to think that in this day and age there can be any kind of lost anything when it comes to Star Wars. BTW, I would totes rock a laserdisc player today. Growing up I had a friend who had Dune on laserdisc, hoochie mama that was awesome.

Eve Beauregard's Power Girl Cosplay. I still they they need to do a Power Girl movie. She's way more interesting than Wonder Woman and she less iconic so a director could (gasp) take more liberties with the character without nerds getting all bent out of shape about it. Also boob window.

The 10 Hilariously Confusing Origins of Hawkman. Hawkman is one of those characters that has a cool name and a (relatively) cool look but his backstory is SOOOOO terrible that no one is really that interested in him. Unless you like him ironically I guess.

Corey Feldman Says He and Corey Haim Were Pedo-Raped By Hollywood. This is a sad but sort of unsurprising story. You read enough tabloid blogs and you hear stories about how young Hollywood actors and actresses get prostituted out by their parents all the time. Sure you could chalk this one up to Corey Feldman being genuinely crazy, but the fact that he is so crazy kind of lends a bit of credence to the idea of him having a really terrible childhood.

Sony Tries To Stop Nude Images From Beyond: Two Souls From Spreading Online. Whoops... If you haven't heard the story yet here's the 2 sentence summary: Beyond Two Souls has a shower scene and when they mo-capped Ellen Page for said scene they actually rendered her completely naked. Now she's not shown naked in the game but someone got their hands on screenshots from a dev-kit and posted them on-line.

This might end up being a cautionary tale to motion-capture actors and actresses. Once a cgi house has a good capture of your face and body they can pretty much manipulate it anyway that they want. It only takes one unscrupulous 3d modeler and boom, your likeness is on youporn doing really unspeakable things to Halo's Cortana.

Cosplay Kitchen: Avengers Cookies

"Let's dress up like the Avengers and make superhero shaped cookies" is something my wife has never said. Yeah, I don't know what's wrong with her either...

Captain America: the Winter Soldier, the trailer

Hey kids, just in time for Thor 2 to disappoint at the box office (not a comment on the quality of the film, I just feel like Marvel is set for a bump in the road) here's the trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Interesting note on Captain America 2. Joe Johnston, the director of the first movie, has been replaced by Anthony and Joe Russo. Brothers who as far as I can tell have only directed one feature film before, You, Me and Dupree. They have directed A LOT of TV shows, some good (Arrested Development, Community) and some terrible (Animal Practice). Weird that Disney has tapped them for a big early summer blockbuster. The story that they're adapting from the comics is one of my favorite Captain America stories so hopefully they'll do it justice. I'd hate for this to just feel like a 2 hour teaser for Avengers 2.

... The Blurst of Times: Fangasm

Having a 6 week old baby has provided me with ample opportunities to watch garbage TV shows during 3am feedings. With "..the Blurst of Times" I'll tell you all about whatever horrible reality show I watched the night before.

Fangasm like Jersey Shore or the Real world before it, is one of those shows where producers throw a bunch of strangers together in a house and hope something happens while the cameras are rolling. The only difference with Fangasm is these strangers are nerds and in place of hot tub hook ups and Stephen slapping Irene we're stuck with what felt like a 6 hour commercial for Stan Lee's Comikaze.

What is Stan Lee's Comikaze you ask? Well it's a comic book/pop culture convention in Southern California that I had never heard of before this show. So you know.. it's huge. These nerdy strangers have all been given temporary internships with Comikaze so every episode follows their zany adventures as they do intern-like things such as passing out flyers and cleaning out Elvira's storage locker. At the end of the season the "winner" gets a permanent internship with Stan Lee's Comikaze.

I'll be honest with you ('cause usually I'm full of lies here) this show is terrible. But don't take my word for it. Comics Alliance and Topless Robot have their own, much better written, takedowns of the show. Just know this, I have a very low standard for entertainment as long as feel like I have a personal intrest in the subject matter. Beauty and the Geek? Loved it. King of the Nerds? Couldn't get enough! Heroes of Cosplay? Sure why not! Comic Book Men? ok, even I have standards... My point is, this show should have been right in my wheelhouse but it was SOOOOOOO contrived the best I could do was hate watch it while making snarky comments on Twitter.

On a scale of Game of Thrones to Big Bang Theory, I'll give Fangasm a D+. I wish all the geeks on the show well, but I hope SyFy never returns to this specific concept of reality show garbage. It made Beauty and the Geek look like the Wire.

Well this is awkward

33 Beautiful Abandoned Places

This post on Imgur of the 33 Most Beautiful Abandoned Places in the World is really something else. I really love the bobsled track and the fishing hut in Germany. The hut really reminded me of a spot in Skyrim. I'm not sure what that says about me.

Normally this is one of those things that I would save for a links post but I'm thinking of taking a nap instead.

Supercut: Running in SLLLLOOOOWWW Motion

Here's a supercut of people in movies running in slow motion. It's far less T&A than the screen shot would have you believe.

I used to have the slow motion running dream a lot. Like I was always missing the bus or trying to catch someone and I could only run in slow motion. I'm sure that says something horrible and disturbing about me, like the dreams where I'm always losing my teeth. Of course now that I have the new baby at home and I'm averaging about 4 hours of sleep a night and I hardly dream at all. Go me?

Adam WarRock: Batman Sound FX

B.S.F.X. by Adam WarRock is totes my new jam, y'all. It combines several of my interests like comic books, rapping and the 1966 Batman TV show. Check it out, if you don't like it I promise you a complete refund.

Hell No: The Sensible Horror Film

My favorite thing about October (other than calling it Rocktober) is getting to watch horror movie marathons in the days leading up to Halloween. This trailer for the totally not fake at all movie, Hell No looks pretty good. I imagine it can't be very long, but that's ok. I don't have a lot of time to spend watching movies these days. I'm like 4 episodes behind on Castle.

Links of the Dead

The 25 Most Ridiculous Movies with “Of the Dead” in the Title. I can't believe I've only seen like 2 of these. I'm going to have to add Lust of the Dead to my netflix queue. Or maybe not, I share my netflix account with my parents. They might see that and get the wrong idea.

4K resolution Video Game Screenshots. Holy shitsnacks Batman. In case you were unawares, the 4K resolution revolution is coming. 1080p? that's for suckers. Check out these screenshots so your mind grapes won't be blown away the first time you see Skyrim in 4K.

How We'll Create The Prettiest Elder Scrolls Characters Ever. Speaking of crazy good graphics. This video of the character generator for Elder Scrolls Online hit the web this week and it looks amazeballs. I wish I had the time or the coin to sit there and play this game but the math is pretty simple. 2 kids < 4yrs = 0 MMOs.

35 Of The Best X-Men Mash-Ups. I needed a 4th thing for my links page and these were kind of funny.

Christmas in October

Wednesday, October 16, 2013


I have no speakers in my computer here at work so I can't 100% vouch for this but I've been told this "bad lip reading" edit of Game of Thrones called Medieval Land Fun-Time World is high-larious.
Theme park manager Eddie Stark has one week to whip his lackluster group of employees into shape before the park's grand opening

Sounds like it needs more Bill Murray.

Slow Motion Water Balloon Fight

The Slow Mo Guys (yeah that's a thing now) went out and filmed a water balloon fight at 2500fps. It's pretty cool. I mean not as cool as that time I had squirt gun fight during my 12th birthday party but still pretty cool.

Guardians of the Galaxy Teaser

Here's the bootleg footage of the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer that was shown at New York Comic Con this last weekend. Enjoy it before Big Disney pulls it down.

Avalanche Sharks is your new Sharknado

Is it too early to say that SyFy has jumped the Shark on Shark movies? Sure Avalanche Sharks looks pretty good (and by that I mean spectacularly bad) but I was sort of hoping the spiritual sequel to Sharknado would have been like Octocane or Alligaphoon.

Whatever, it's hard to complain about a movie that's basically Hot Dog: The Movie + Sharks.

As a reminder that Archer is awesome, the folks at Archer have remade the Kenny Loggins Danger Zone video from Top Gun.

With the newborn baby at home I find myself up for random feedings in the dead of the night. Right now I have two go to shows on Netflix/Amazon. Always Sunny and Archer. I was watching High School of the Dead but for some reason the FREAKING SECOND SEASON ISN'T ON NETFLIX YET! Seriously, someone get on that.

Ordinary Batman Adventures

Hentai Kamen Tralier (english version?)

I have no idea what this is but I do know funny when I see it. Also that's a dudes butt.

Links Explain it All

Best, Sluttiest and Weirdest Store-Bought Halloween Costumes for 2013. I love these 1966 Batman TV Show inspired costumes. I might buy one just for fun. Casual Fridays at work and all..

Clarissa Explains All The Drugs She Did. Back in the day when I was young and single, having a subscription to Maxim sounded like a good idea. I vividly remember the Melissa Joan Hart issue. Kinda sad to hear she was all hopped up on drugs when she did it. Still not as sad as the Melissa and Joey TV show. That was clearly rock bottom.

NBA Jam Was Rigged Against The Chicago Bulls. I LOVE this, screw the Michael Joranless Chicago Bulls. There was nothing worse then getting beaten by Scottie Pippin and f'ing Horace Grant. Not that I was ever getting beaten or anything. At the machine by my house I had the record for the longest winning streak and best winning percentage. 16-0 Baby!

6 Sexist Video Game Problems Even Bigger Than the Breasts. The second to last one on this list is the one that really grinds my gears. There's no reason there shouldn't be more playable female characters in video games. I have a daughter now this sexist nonsense is important to me now!

Also I've heard the last Tomb Raider game is really good.

Lego Ninjago Fight!

My son is SUPER into Lego Ninjago right now. If you're unfamiliar Ninjago is a line of ninja Legos. There's a TV show, a bunch of books and of course Legos. He's so into them that we went to a Lego convention this weekend and yesterday when I asked him what his favorite part was he said "the black ninja", refering to the back Ninjago mini-figure we bought him.

There was a 40,000 piece Hogwarts there and a 8 foot long Star Destroyer and to him the 4 dollar figure we bought him was the highlight of the show.

Dodge Durango | Ron Burgundy | "Gumball Machine"

If you were watching any "hand-egg" yesterday you probably saw one of these Ron Burgundy/Dodge Durango commercials. This one is easily my favorite. The glove box is often overlooked when it comes to reviewing a car. I mean that's a lot of gum.

Tumbleweed, Episode 1: Bang

Ever wondered what a web series about a guy stuck in a video game like Red Dead Redemption would look like? Well wonder no more my friend here's Tumbleweed. It's a lot funnier than it has any right to be.

Battlefield 4 Beta opens today

The Battlefield 4 Beta opens today. Here's a little video showcasing the Siege of Shanghai mission. It looks action packed but it also looks JUST LIKE BATTLEFIELD 3. I know all the eggs are in the next generation console basket but I was hoping there would be something that would set B4 apart from B3. It just kind of looks like a map pack. I'll keep not playing Battlefield 3 right now, thank you very much.

Kill it with fire

Here's video of Boston Dynamics newest robotic abomination the WildCat. If it's not the most terrifying thing in the world just imagine packs of these things with giant metal claws roaming the streets. Everyone is worried about zombies but it's the robot apocalypse that's going to get us.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 looks impressive

I've been thinking about getting a new phone and a new tablet. Maybe I should head on down to the AT&T store and check this one out a bit closer.

Excuse me for a sec if I sound ignorant on the subject of cheerleading. I'd say 99.8% of my knowledge on the activity comes from the Bring It On movies, but when the H E double hockey sticks did cheerleading become an extreme sport? 2 minutes into this video and I kept expecting a mountain dew machine to start tumbling down the beach. Also this group looks like they smell like Axe body spray. A LOT of Axe Body spray.

Still, impressive video right?

The Moon

Here's a new trailer for Bungie's newest licence to print money, Destiny. It looks good. Real good. Like "hey my kids can live without formula a diapers for just one month" good.

Why is mine so complicated

Could be worse, he could be using the Steel Battalion controller.

Mega Rocktober Links

How LucasArts Fell Apart. WOW If you ever played Full Throttle, Monkey Island or any of the X-Wing games go read this. It's ok I'll be here when you get back. I know the article is specific to LucasArts but a lot of video game houses have gone out of business or been bought up by EA over the last few years and this article gives some really good insight as to why. $100 Million to develop a Star Wars themed GTA clone? That's crazy money. We're light years away from Lord British developing games alone in his mom's basement.

Also I'd like to point out that it's mentioned that the Star Wars 1313 trailer that debuted at E3 in 2012 totes was running on next generation console tech, just as I thought in my post about it. Go me.

Forever 21 and Batman finally team up. I'm not going to lie to you, there's a strong chance my wife gets this sweater for Christmas. I mean the rest of the clothes they have are really awful but this sweater is pretty boss.

I Watched the Esquire Network for 24 Hours Straight. The New Esquire Network is supposed to be the network for the sophisticated male. Good luck with that. Remember when TLC was The Learning Channel? I predict in 2 years ESQ will be known as the go to place for Cops and Two and a Half Men reruns.

If Bill Gates really thinks ctrl-alt-del was a mistake, he should have fixed it himself. I know why ctrl-alt-del was used as the hard reset by IBM but I had no idea why Microsoft adopted it to do such critical tasks as log into your computer and pretend to bring up task manager while you wait for 20 minutes.. Now I do.

The Qatar World Cup Is A Moral Shit Show. Did you know Qatar uses near slave labor and they have zero safety standards? Go Soccer!
