Are You Tired of Your Cat Being SO DAMN QUIET ALL THE TIME? You’re SO STUPID! Buy Cat Armor.

Published by under Images,Oddly Enough

armor3

I can’t pretend like I can write anything about this with a straight face, so I’ll let the “official product description” speak for itself. And hopefully you understand the Always Sunny reference in my title, or else I just look like a crazy person.

“100% wearable, flexible, and comfortable, the Cat Battle Armor is a for-reals armor harness for your kitty. Completely hand-made from durable veg-tan leather, this is no mere costume piece. Your cat will become an unstoppable force for slaughter in this fully articulated suit, shielding him/her from foes while allowing unimpeded movement across the battlefield or living room floor. The imposing torso section features several riveted, articulated plates and a terrifying rack of dorsal spines. Your cat’s hindquarters are sheathed beneath exquisitely arrayed overlapping scales stitched to a soft leather backing, adorned with nickel silver dome rivets. Midnight black scales and plates are finished with a glossy protective coat and seamlessly join together like the petals of a deadly flower. Adjustable at the collar with elastic and two nickel silver buckles, and at the belly with grommeted corset-style lacing for a secure, comfortable fit.”

So buy some motherflippin’ cat armor here. One more picture of the cat surprisingly not freaking the f*** out below: Continue Reading »

Debate of the Day: What Video Game Name Would You Steal For Your Kid?

Published by under Debate,Oddly Enough

tali

Word is spreading around the internet that some parents named their kid Tali’Zorah after the Quarian from Mass Effect (who also happened to be my main love interest during the series). Overlooking my e-crush on the girl, is this….uh, cool? Crazy?

It got me thinking, are there any video game character names you’d swipe for your own future kid? Like, what’s cool AND acceptable? In this case, I totally think it’s legitimate to name a girl Tali, though I don’t really see the necessity to go all the way to “Tali’Zorah.” Is her middle name “Vas Normandy”?

Confession time: I’ve always wanted to name a theoretical daughter Sophitia after the Soul Calibur fighter. It’s just such a cool name, and “Sophia” is the new “Ashley” these days in terms of commonness.

I’m not talking about naming your kid something normal like “Nathan” and claiming its after a famous video game adventurer. It has to be a little bit outside the box. Like, Kratos Fenix Tassi or something like that. What’s a cool video game kid name, but one still within the bounds of sanity?

And don’t you dare steal Sophitia from me…

Emotional Heat Maps are Weirdly Accurate

Published by under Images,Oddly Enough

emotional

I can’t pretend like I can spin this picture I found on io9 is in any way pop culture related, but I think it’s cool enough to share nonetheless. It’s originally from Discover, and comes from a study trying to map where in our body we “feel” various emotions.

It may look sort of random at first, but if you go through and try to picture a time you had that emotion, how it felt, it’s usually pretty accurate. Fun notes include that only Happiness makes your legs get warm, Shame turns you into Spider-Man, and Contempt makes your genitals run cold.

My Little Raptor

Published by under Images,Oddly Enough,Television

mlv1

I’ll admit, ever since my marathon of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic that I watch when attempting to write this post, I haven’t really returned to the show. Not that I begrudge its existence, I’ve just been swept up in movies, games and shows that are a bit less sparkles and rainbows. Though there’s always a need for sparkles and rainbows, I guess.

Though I may be tempted to return if the show veered in this direction. Artist Cherry Garcia has remade the show so that it’s now “My Little Raptor” instead. Friendship is Terror? Friendship is Delicious? I don’t know.

All the pony girls have gone raptor transformations, and you can see the rest below. How IS Brony life these days? Is that still a thing fellas? Continue Reading »

Now You Too Can Have Amazing Hand-Crafted Cosplay Costumes (That You Didn’t Make)

Published by under Cosplay,Oddly Enough

cosplayer

Ever wanted to be as awesome as all the cosplayers you see all over the internet? No? Well, I have, so shut up. Problem is, I can’t sew or make cool shit out of foam. But other people can, and once they’re done with their costumes, you can now buy them via a new site called CosTrader.

It’s a marketplace for old cosplay costumes, which is kind of cool given how much freaking work when into some of these. It’s still attracting attention so it doesn’t have the hugest selection as of yet, but I can see the concept taking off within the community. Some stuff is ludicrously overpriced, while some seems much more reasonable. The only problem I foresee with this is that most great cosplay costumes are made to fit the person wearing them exactly. To alter them, you need to the crafting skills you obviously don’t have if you’re shopping for secondhand cosplay costumes.

But I think it’s a cool marketplace, and I hope it takes off.

The ABCs of My Web Browser

Published by under Oddly Enough,Uncategorized

chrome

Alright, so news has been relatively slow over this holiday break here, so I’ve been bouncing around wacky ideas that I can’t really justify. But I thought this one was sort of fun, and I hope you’ll join in with me in the comments with your own.

You see, I think your web browser can sort of paint a picture of you as a person based on your most frequented sites. I thought it would be fun to see what came up automatically in Google Chrome when I typed each letter of the alphabet, as that would be my most frequented site with that letter. By the end, I’d have an entire list, for better or worse.

So, these twenty-six are mine, and they range from the obvious and big-time to the small and random. Here are a few to get you started, and click to find the rest.

A is for Amazon, where “buy in one click”  has ruined me

B is for BeachBody, where my wife is now a coach

C is for Cracked, the internet’s king of comedy

D is for Debaucherous, because I was looking up how to spell it

E is for Expedia, which books my every flight

F is for Facebook, a weird museum of people I used to know Continue Reading »

Saturday Morning Massacre: Part Two

Published by under Oddly Enough,Television

power

by Adam Esquenazi Douglas

Check out part one here!

When last we left our heroes, Popeye the Sailor Man and the Powerpuff Girls had found themselves at the mercy of the masterminds of the greatest cataclysm in cartoon history: Pinky. And the Brain.

“Narf!” a voice said in the distance.

Hearing such nonsense, he wondered if his hearing had gotten damaged or maybe he was concussed. Or maybe he was like the girls, too damaged by the destruction to make sense of anything ever again.

What he saw next certainly didn’t help. Continue Reading »

Batman is Trapped

Published by under Comics,Images,Oddly Enough

Simon-Monk-Trapped-Batman

Artist Simon Monk has come out with one of the stranger series I’ve seen in quite some time. It’s a collection of paintings which show Batman being trapped by a variety of uh, trapping…things.

He’s held in place by duct tape, scotch tape, a net, string and even Saran Wrap. I imagine this is some sort of textiles exercise or something, but if it’s just for fun I don’t quite get it. But I like it all the same.

Check out Batman under siege by other stuff below:

Trailer of the Year: Netflix’s Fireplace

Published by under Oddly Enough,Videos

No you didn’t miss Netflix coming out with a new original show called “Fireplace” about heroic firefighters and their heartbreaking adventures. Rather, this is a trailer for “Fireplace for Your Home,” the Netflix streaming feature that is…exactly what it sounds like.

But since Netflix has a sense of humor, more than most TV networks anyway, they created a trailer specifically for the epic fireplace, and you can check it out above.

A Gallery of Robots, Dinosaurs and Donuts – I Have No Idea

Published by under Images,Oddly Enough

06 - 5QcHUFZ

Eric Joyner has a passion. A passion for robots. And dinosaurs. And donuts. All very cool things by themselves, but just the greatest thing in the world when they’re all combined together, apparently.

Joyner has done a series of paintings featuring one, two or three of things. I have no idea what inspired this exactly, but I’m glad something did, as now we have this amazing gallery on our hands. You really have to check it out for yourself below to see the full extent of the absurdity. Continue Reading »

Well That’s a New Look for The Doctor

Published by under Images,Oddly Enough

At first I wasn’t quite sure what the hell was going on in this picture, and thought it might be just a random bit of fan photoshop. But not so, it turns out that Matt Smith’s first post-Doctor Who gig will be playing Patrick Bateman in a MUSICAL edition of American Psycho. Oh my god, that sounds amazing.

It starts in London on January 25th, meaning you can buy me a plane ticket as my Christmas present. Thanks guys! You’re so nice.

A few more photos of Matt Smith all bloody and suit-y below: Continue Reading »
