You Can Buy Daryl’s Walking Dead Vest Soon

Published by under Images,Television

vest

Do you have long hair, swagger, a crossbow, and generally resemble a Boondock Saint? Well, then you might want to consider dressing up as Daryl Dixon for either cosplay purposes or Halloween. And the essential key the whole ensemble is naturally Daryl’s winged vest which tells us he’s a GUARDIAN ANGEL in case that wasn’t perfectly clear.

You could probably make this yourself via a thrift shop and a craft store if you wanted, but if you can’t be troubled to do that, you can shell out $251.00 for a premade vest from Urban Collector. They’re available for pre-order, and no, at even that price they do not include a crossbow, sorry.

The Morning Link: The 8 Most Memorable TV Farewells

Published by under Morning Link

farewell

“Babies are born, kids grow up, couples get married, people die, circle of life, hakuna matata, etc. This is how real life works, and television series, too. Things happen and people have to leave, for one reason or another. For the purposes of this list, I’m only including still-alive characters who we got to know that knowingly left the show rather than one-off characters (that’s for another time).”

Pen and Ink Pop Culture

Published by under Images

1405829180-0

Artist Rik Reimert has a medium of choice, pen and ink, and with a series of mostly straight lines, has drawn and shaded a rather fantastic series showcasing some of pop cultures biggest acting icons.

Naturally we all recognize the Dinklagetron 3000 above, but the series spans De Niro, Spacey, Sutherland (the Donald version) and many more. It’s amazing what you can get done with pen and ink alone, and it’s a series worth checking out below: Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Old School Mystique

Published by under Comics,Cosplay,Images

mystiqe_by_hidory-d53od9g

The Mystique we know and love nowadays is Jennifer Lawrence wearing nothing but blue bodypaint and scale flakes, but it wasn’t always that way. Once upon a time, Mystique actually wore clothes, as evidenced by this bit of flashback cosplay from Hidory.

This is how I remember her in the X-Men animated series days, complete with belt of skulls and weird head jewel. Hidory does a great job here, and her photographer makes her look about seven feet tall, which amplifies the intimidation effect. Check out more shots from the series below: Continue Reading »

The League of Extraordinary Americans

EXTRAORDINARY AMERICANS

Imagine if a librarian from the Victorian era created the Justice League.

Might not sound incredibly thrilling but in 1999 comics legend Alan Moore made the concept not just work but rock in his miniseries The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Featuring a slew of characters from every corner of Victorian literature, the LOEG was a rollicking, partially demented adventure that made you wish you were a bit more well-read.

Being a proper Englishman, though, Moore of course used (mostly) characters from his home and native land. Being a young American reader I thrilled at the brief Tralfamadorian cameo and the Who Dat Ninja poster in the background, but, for the most part, the USA was MIA throughout the League’s various goings-on.

Today, though, I’m gonna get patriotic and ‘MERICA the crap outta the limey League and present the League of Extraordinary AMERICANS, using ONLY American created characters and concepts. Am I being a rampant, red-white-and-blue-tinted glasses-wearing Nationalist? You bet. But hey, at least I’m not shoe-horning in…ugh…Tom Sawyer to appeal to Americans.

Ready? For the stars and bars! Continue Reading »

Why Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is One of the Best Sequels in Years

Published by under Uncategorized

DAWN PLANET APES MOV

Hopefully you guys have all seen Dawn of the Planet of the Apes by now. If not, fix that! It’s the best movie of the summer (barring Snowpiercer, which is a very different sort of thing). Matt Reeves’ sequel to 2011’s sleeper hit showcases great action, strong characters, and above-average intelligence. And yes, there’s flaws, too. It’s not perfect.

Still, the flaws aren’t my business today, because what that struck me most of all about this movie was how well it functioned as a sequel. With all the franchises and spinoffs and whatever else we’re swamped with these days, you’d think more folks would actually know how to use the sequel format correctly. But, uh… you’d be wrong.

Matt Reeves and his crew got it very, very right. Here’s how:

It Should Be A Movie By Now: Silverhawks

Published by under Movies,Television

 

silverhawks-feature

What would you get if you mixed some flying birds, Daft Punk and the Thundercats together? I can’t go another week mentioning shows that have gone by the way side that should’ve been movies by now without saying something about the Silverhawks. Yeah, that was me slapping a childhood memory out from the cobwebs of your brain!

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve brought this show up in the past and no one has a clue what I’m even talking about. Silverhawks is not that old, yet is typically not remembered by my generation until you show them a toy. Continue Reading »

The Queen’s Royal Guard Plays the Game of Thrones Theme

Published by under Television,Videos

There are very few actual kings and queens left in the world these days, but one of them is in England, so I suppose it stands to reason that her Royal Guard might be Game of Thrones fans. They may have to defend her from tourists, not Baratheons and Starks, but they take their job pretty seriously nonetheless.

In the video above, her guard is taking a break from standing still and marching to bust out a rather great version of the Game of Thrones theme. That’s right Queen, please those peasants with song!

Father Builds Battlemech Treehouse

Published by under Images,Oddly Enough

battlemech

When I was a kid, practically all the trees in my yard were pine, and past that, building codes didn’t allow for anyone to build actual treehouses in our neighborhood. So instead, my dad built me a wooden climbing castle in our basement, that was a rough collection of wood beams and blanks with little structure or form.

And it was awesome. As a kid, your imagination can fill in the gaps, and I loved my weird wooden palace the way these kids probably love their life-size mechwarrior. Seriously, that’s one way to get around a treehouse ban, I suppose.

Rumor has it this was actually built by a NASA engineer for his kids, which is about the only thing that makes sense. Does it move? I hope it moves.

“Okay, back to Fargo! We were told from the very beginning that Fargo would be a show like True Detective: that as much as we may love the characters and the world of the show, they would not return for season two, and each season would exist independently of each other. Well, sort of.”
