Heroes of Cosplay: I’ve never been tempted to watch the show Heroes of Cosplay for a few reasons. One is I don’t like to know who a lot of cosplayers are. I don’t really care. I like to either think a costume or person is cool, hot or whatever and then move on. The second reason is the show is a stupid reality show. There was some drama recently that makes for some entertaining reading. This will probably be the last time I talk about Heroes of Cosplay.
Zatanna: Speaking of cosplay, woah! Check out this Zatanna. You ever notice something? There’s really only one kind of person that gets super successful at cosplay and it’s mostly due to two huge reasons.
How Far did Rocky Run? Since I’m not from Philadelphia I never thought about how the running montage in Rocky II was completely unrealistic. Someone did their research and found out the astonishing answer to how far Rocky ran.
Table Top Game Stuff
X-Wing! Man, it’s been awhile since I bought anything for X-wing or much less played the game. It feels like ages ago when I was super into it. I blame lack of time. One new product that was announced caught my fancy, the Imperial Aces pack which is a pair of Imperial TIE Interceptors that are not only repaints, but they come with new pilots and abilities. I’m glad I only ever found one of the regular kind at retail! Now we just need some X-Wing repaints with new Rebel pilots!
Batman: Despite the fact that there’s still no Batman 1966 available on DVD or Blu-Ray, there’s lots of merchandise available now, including this new 1/6th scale Adam West Batman from Hot Toys. As you can see, they’re also making Robin too.
If you want to pre-order the 1966 Hot Toys Batman, then just click that link and go nuts, Richie Rich.
Pop Culture Stuff
Anakin Stuff: Chris wanted me to post this video of Darth Vader speaking Anakin’s lines from Phantom Menace. It’s kinda cute.
Marvel’s Power Hour Double Dumbass did a brief retrospective of one of the greatest cartoon blocks in the history of cartoons, Marvel’s Action Universe!
Buzzfeed Sucks: I hate Buzzfeed with a passion. It’s the lowest form of content trolling around. Internet writer guys like me bust our asses to provide good content and a post like the laziest salmon (which is just pics of dead salmon) get thousands of hits. It’s lame. The other reason why I hate it is that many times the content is available from actual news sites or other sources that actually add value to the content. Well, I ran across this post listing 19 reasons why Buzzfeed Sucks. I agree with the whole thing except for the part about root beer floats. That’s like saying you can drink milk and eat ice cream, why would you need a milkshake?
Removing Stripes: I don’t talk about cars much, but I like them. I have a 2007 Mustang (sorry it’s only a V6) that I’ve done a few changes too. Nothing big. Well, I’ve had some paint problems recently and my vinyl stripes went bad. Basically, I’ll be doing what the guy is doing in the above video this weekend. It’s probably the most manly thing I’m going to do all year. Sadly, I don’t have a rocking mullet or a bad ass skeleton guitar shirt.
