That’s right folks, it was 20 years ago today that Canadian animator/maniac John Kricfalusi warped the minds of 10-12 year olds across the globe. Never before had toilet humor and outlandish violence been captured so beautifully as it was with the help of an asthma-hound chihuahua and a semi-retarded cat. But if it wasn’t for the disturbing nonsensical chaos that Ren & Stimpy provided, I probably wouldn’t be the jolly ole Viking that I am today. Read the rest of this entry »
One would assume that since MARVEL now has the power to make their own films they’d be able to make flawless comic book movies. Not so. Many would simply forget about the Fantastic Four flub, Ghost Rider‘s gaffe, and Electra‘s err…not me. A good handful of spot on renditions have come to the screen to prove that it can be done correctly. It just sucks when someone only goes half way. I just didn’t think the people behind X-Men: First Class would be in that category. Read the rest of this entry »
“Macho Man” Randy Savage: Speaking from the Heart
While a slew of morons are plastering religious nonsense all over the internet, some rather shocking information elbow-dropped me into my own religious experience….and not in a good way. It seems the greatest, most meticulous, professional wrestler has signed his contract to wrestle for eternity in the halls of Valhalla. Today, “Macho Man” Randy Savage passed away. TMZ has all the details that are known as of now. Read the rest of this entry »
Remembering things that half the world forgot is one of my many mutant powers (being able to spot a female nipple in one frame of a movie is another one). Friends contact me at all hours of the night when they get stuck trying to remember something from their child hood, and 90% of the time I have the answer. It’s that fiendish 10% that gets under my skin. Every now and then my brain only shows me a few images of things that I should know instantly. That REEEALLY pisses me off. But I’m a very patient man. I know that if I wait long enough (and drink enough booze) the veil will be lifted and the knowledge will be mine. Today’s “Throwback” took me over 20 damn years, mostly due to a word that will forever haunt me…..PHOTON. Read the rest of this entry »
So, as many of my friends are aware, I have been looking forward to the first episode of the new web series, Mortal Kombat: Legacy. First off, I want to say that I have had a total girl-crush on Jeri Ryan for some time (Voyager brought that on, of course), and while I thought that she might be a little too “mature” to be playing a 20-something Sonya Blade, I thought that she filled the role nicely based on the first episode and she’s as beautiful and intense as ever. Michael Jai White fills the role of Jax near perfection. I was ecstatic to see Tahmoh Panikett (Helo in Battlestar Gallactica) as Stryker. I have to say, I wasn’t super impressed with the choice of Kano for an antagonist, and I was equally turned off by Darren Shahlavi’s (Watchmen) acting, but I’m not blaming him, they couldn’t have picked a worse bad guy to start the series. What an uninteresting choice?!?! Read the rest of this entry »
Originally I thought this was just going to be a re-telling of my favorite childhood cartoon. I was bullshit when I thought Lion-O was going to stay looking as a child. But if this is what I think, and it’s taking place well after the T-Cats have crashed on 3rd Earth, I’m going to be one happy Reptilian. This looks amazing.

Amy Lee Radigan: Nerdy Girls Need Love Too
Hey! Amy Lee! If you dig older nerds, look no further! Should the whole age thing be an issue, I’m quite sure Professor Hubert Farnsworth has some sort of de-aging devise to make me like 4 years younger. Either way, you’re a cute nerd-girl up in Canada, I’m a gruff looking teddy-bear in Massachusetts. Let’s make this happen!
Most of the dudes and dudettes of my generation have probably never heard the name Charles Sellier Jr. Those who have, they know that he was the creator of the early 70’s character Grizzly Adams both in books and for the small screen. Fans of 80’s horror films know him best as the director of the most controversial holiday slasher film to date, Silent Night Deadly Night. Me being a huge horror fan, it was a real bummer when I hit up DreadCentral.com this morning and found out that Sallier passed away this past Monday. Read the rest of this entry »
Most likely it’s illegal to own one of these things in Massachusetts, but I don’t give a shit. I would proudly drive around my area with a Snarf in the passenger seat. All I’d have to do is keep my glove box fully stocked with candy-fruit, and deal with the occasional lecture. Now for the difficult task of getting one smuggled down from New Thundera.
Out of all those learned toons, my money’s on Brock Samson. He seems like an expert on such things.
Not even 2 damn days into this new year and the celebrity death count has claimed it’s first victim. English actor Pete Postlethwaite finally lost his battle with testicle cancer, a little over a month before his 65th birthday. So close dude. So close. Read the rest of this entry »
Tonight’s the night we all get super tanked and pass out early so that Santa can deliver his presents. But before he makes his way to Earth, he needs to make a pit stop at a planet similar to ours. A great evil named Horde Prime has learned of the Spirit of Christmas, fearing that it just might be the only thing powerful enough to stop him. Guys like that make me want to kick them in the jingle balls. Read the rest of this entry »
Come on, get up, and quit your nappin’! It’s a crazy, messed-up place, where anything can happen! There’s a chair that freakin’ talks (HEY LOOK!), there’s some fish that give advice (HOLY CRAP!)! It’s screwy…at Pee-Wee’s playhouse!
That place really is nuts; I know, cuz I’ve been there a few times. But when Christmas time rolls around, some wild shit happens. Read the rest of this entry »
CONAN: Minty The Candy Cane That Fell On The Ground
If I have to have this damn song stuck in my head for a week, then SO DO YOU!
His name is Shumway. Gordon Shumway. He is a refugee from the terrible explosion of planet Melmac (a quaint little rock, once located six parsecs past the Hydra-Centaurus Supercluster). Many of his customs are strange to us, like Fappiano and National Rag On The Martians day. Christmas is one of ours that he can’t quite grasp. Read the rest of this entry »
In an effort to raise money for the Save The Snarfs Society, a handful of Thundercats rallied the people of First Earth for a 5k charity marathon. While Cheetara set countless world records on that day, Thundercats Ben-Gali and Lynx-O mysteriously disappeared. Witnesses report spotting a bandaged weightlifter with blue skin and a tattered red cape fleeing the scene. Officials are baffled.
BATMAN The Animated Series: Christmas With The Joker
HEY! The Joker’s not suppose to know that song! That’s OUR song! And how in the hell did the guards at Arkham let a rocket-tree slip by their ever watchful eyes?
No man in the history of Sitcom Land takes their neighborhood decorating contest more serious than Tim Taylor. Everything from “The Three Wise Tool Guys”, to a full sized electric Tim, has a well thought out spot on his roof. But not everything is all “Holly Jolly” in the Taylor household this year. It seems the old proctologist across the street has found a way to go decoration for decoration, illuminating his place with near identical ornaments before The Tool Man can set up his. What a Scrooge McFuck. Read the rest of this entry »
