“Remember back in the day when, even with the instructions, you couldn’t build that Lego set? But there was that jerk who could just do it by looking at the box? Fast-forward to today, where IKEA is giving you all sorts of hell, and that kid now builds stupid awesome gadgets.”

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see dream casting Hannibal’s new Clarice.

“After Hannibal’s devastating and glorious second season finale, it’s been increasingly difficult to wait out the series’ hiatus without trying to imagine where showrunner and writer Bryan Fuller will take us next. But take heart, the writers are back in action and as of September 22nd, Season 3 production has begun. The first episode is titled “Antipasto,” and will be directed by Vincenzo Natali (“Su-zakana, Naka-Choko”).”

Battle of the Trilogy: Round 1

Published by under Movies


There is an abundance of popular movies that happened to be part of a trilogy and I just wanted to do something fun pertaining to those films. Now I’m talking about the trilogies that were initially set up to be 3 movies. Not those films that got tacked on years later that took a solid trilogy to a “why is this now a quadrilogy*?” You know what I’m talking about – Indiana Jones 4, Pirates of the Caribbean 4, or even the Bourne Legacy.

When I started my voyage into the world of trilogies I found that I was unaware just how many there are. I wanted to make sure I picked from some of the more popular ones so the battles would be a bit more relevant. I also had to be sure that I had actually watched the films in order to allow for a certain order of fairness within the competition.

This first round will be longer than the rest because I’ve got to explain everything and do the initial setup for the battles to come!

Adventure Time Gets Badass-ified

Published by under Images,Television


Artist Shillustration has gone through and done some makeovers of all your favorite Adventure Time characters, given them tattoos, piercings, weapons and bad attitudes. It would obviously be a very different show if these remakes were implemented, but Adventure Time is such a random show, I can’t even say this will never happen.

The rest are below, though I can’t even feature the remakes of the girls, because they’re rather NSFW. Those can be seen here, because I know after that description you’re going to be curious. Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Has Science Gone Too Far?

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Video Games


Why yes, you ARE looking at sexy Scyther cosplay, a Pokemon that I never thought I’d see in this format. And honestly, it’s really damn good! The concept was executed by Termina Cosplay, who had the fortitude to go where no other Pokemon cosplayer had gone before. Though given that this is the internet, I suppose I’m about to be linked to like 20 other sexy Scyther costumes I’ve somehow missed over the years.

There are many more photos in the series for you to check out below, which show just how cool this costume actually is. You can also think of her as “badass Tinkerbell” too if that helps, which was actually my first thought when I saw this originally. Continue Reading »

Playing the Trap Card

Published by under Images,Oddly Enough


Alright, I’m not entirely sure Magic: The Gathering even has trap cards (is that Yu-Gi-Oh?) but I couldn’t resist the headline. Lindsey, mentioned in the card, tells the story of how she got engaged via a faux Magic card:

“Eric played Time Spiral, a card that forced me to shuffle my hand back into my library. Well, I cheated and placed the proposal card on my lap. No way was I going to risk not drawing it again. Fortunately, at this point I was able to play Mirari’s Wake, which doubled my mana, allowing me to play my expensive Sorcery. I laughed and said, “I think I just won the game” and threw the card down. Eric was perplexed for a moment, because he is a long time MtG player and knew all, and I mean ALL, the cards. It took him a moment to read the text, and another moment for realization to dawn upon him.”

Yeah, they’re totally perfect for each other. And this is awesome. Nerds forever (*raises fist in air*)

Spy For Hire

Published by under Columns,Movies


Spies are some of the most exciting movie characters to watch. Seeing Ethan Hunt soar from rooftop to rooftop or Jason Bourne thwart the CIA’s schemes is a lot of fun. But some spies are all about the theatrics. At the end of the day, would Bond actually be able to hold down a job? M, for one, seems to find him a nuisance. As someone who’s had to hire and fire people in the past, I’m judging a handful of candidates on their performance, ingenuity and efficiency to see who’s the most employable. Continue Reading »

Growing up, Jubilee was always the worst X-Men to me, dazzling enemies with her fireworks displays rather than doing anything actually useful. And her design summed up every awful, terrible things about the ’90s (’80s?) with her stupid giant yellow coat. At least high-waisted shorts are back in style, I guess.

Despite that, I can’t deny that this bit of Jubilee tribute art from Gorrem is anything but amazing. Apparently I could have him draw all my least favorite pop culture characters, and I’d still be impressed.

The Final Countdown: Buster Bluth, Viral Twists and Mordor Hype

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see the many outbursts of Buster Bluth.

“Poor Buster Bluth. The youngest of Lucille Bluth’s children left the womb (after eleven months… there were claw marks on the walls of her uterus) but never really left the nest. Buster has been maimed, mocked, put in a box, denied his educational pursuits, told that he was no good, lied to, rejected by three mother figures (his actual mother and two lovers), flat out replaced, and always kept at arms length by his siblings.”

Turns Out Knights Weren’t Like Swordfighting Robots After All

Published by under Videos

I guess this video doesn’t technically have anything to do with movies, TV or video games, our usual fare on the site here, but given how often we consume media where people in armor plating fight with swords, it still seems pretty relevant.

The video above shows two men in full armor suits fighting with far more agility than you would believe. They act out some scenes from some old paintings, and also the roll from Dark Souls as well, showing that despite what people thinking, knights weren’t actually just lumbering Tin Men with no flexibility whatsoever.

It’s a cool video, and worth watching to dispel some long-held beliefs.
