A Little Bat-Bondage?

In the spirit of the recent flurry of posts about suggestive art, I had to post this little beauty.

Marvel Mini's=ADORABLE

Another flicker find, and strangely I find myself loving the cute. Of course I do have an abiding obsession with Marvel Superhero Squad (called Squishy Guys by the truly discerning) so there could be a theme emerging....

DCU isn't ALL suck

Well it's official. Heath Ledgers performance in DK has started seeping into the artwork in the DCU (and I heartily approve) This pic is AMAZING and I'll admit, I have a thing for the Harley/Joker Romance. The twisted and insane need love too! ;)~

Kirk Warren (I'm going to get used to mentioning his name) posted a link to the full poster of the controversial (or blog worthy) pic of Supergirl and I found this little gem in the flickr photostream.

Because No One Noticed

My first (and thus far only) submission to the Friday Night Fights was this picture:

Look carefully at the bottom left corner, where I engaged in a little creative photoshoppery/DC sabotage....

Oh Venture Brothers, Don't Ever Change

San Deigo Comic Con Envy

So I follow Kirk Warren's link to pics from the San Diego Con and I'm immediately thinking about how I can wrangle my way there next year. Some of the costumes were noteworthy and I picked a few pics out to share, with commentary of course.

I have absolutely NOTHING bad to say about Cap's costume. This guy nailed it, even with mods. He gets best costume award from me.

Skeletor has really let himself go since He-Man was cancelled back in the '80's. I sense two possible outcomes: a) an appearance on Robot Chicken or b)A new reality show that brings together the He-Man cast for fist fights, naked bbq'ing and xbox hooliganism. Skeletor's xbox nom de plume? Big_Boner. He IS a villain after all...(yes, I went there)

She gets sexy costume award and bonus points for cleavage artfully displayed. This was her Joker costume apparently and although I would normally haggle over the lack of similarities, I'm inclined to let her have this one on um...merit.

Venture Brothers villain 'The Monarch' makes an appearance. No doubt to recruit for his evil organization in a quest for world domination and a hot pastrami sandwich on rye.

I had to pick up this one because well....I'm such a big fan of Hello Kitty? *coughs* Emma Frost looks great, I wish her hand wasn't in the way of the pic though....

I'm going to give these girls points for picking two of my favorite fem vigilantes/crimefighters but I'm going to have to admonish Batgirl, seriously now as a role model you should lay off the ganja before a gig.

This concludes my pictorial commentary for today. Return to more productive pursuits. ;)~

Well, it made ME laugh!

Gulliver, did you forget something?

Times Like These

I am a one way motorway
I'm the one that drives away
Then follows you back home
I am a street light shining
I'm a wild light blinding bright
Burning off alone

It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again

I am a new day rising
I'm a brand new sky
To hang the stars upon tonight
I am a little divided
Do I stay or run away
And leave it all behind?

It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again

This cartoon is totally designed for kids, right? I don't think so. I laugh my ass off on a regular basis watching this on Jetix (otherwise known as Toon Disney). And no I don't watch the Disney channel with a sick fascination bordering on creepifying, but I do have two half pints who tend to enjoy their fare from time to time. Every now and then, something good pops up. ;)

Threadless T-Shirts = Awesome, Original, Artistic

You can buy original artwork, submit artwork (possibly get your work printed) and win prizes for most popular tee designs. Hell a slogan alone would net you $200 bucks plus $100 to spend on threadless. It's worth it, and if you have a good design give it a try! :)

Original content? I say thee nay!

My next movies (other than another screening of the Dark Knight) is Hellboy 2, Watchmen, and maybe just maybe...Max Payne (Starring Mark Wahlberg)

Sonny Chiba, Street Fighter

100% Badass, He'll sell your sister in slavery if you try to skip out on him and god help you if he doesn't get his money!

Foo Fighters= Incroyable! Fabuleux !

Foo Fighters - The Pretender (Video Premiere)

So, I went with Juan, K, B and Quiz Boy Cranium™ to see the Foo Fighters at Key Arena last night and had some yummy Thai food at Racha Thai before we all strolled over to the Arena to see the show. SuperGrass (the second warm-up band) was pretty good (I'll have to check them out more throughly on Rhapsody soon). They had funky grooves and good energy coupled with pretty lights on their logo (O.B.=sucker for pretty pretty *grins*).

Then comes the main event, the Foo Fighters. They rocked for 2 hours and 40 minutes and shredded the entire time. Dave Grohl was funny, swore constantly, teased the crowd, told hilarious stories and banged his head like he was still a man of four and twenty. K and I were amazed he could headbang, run up and down the ramp leading to both stages, give a stellar performance on guitar and STILL sing without wheezing. They officially go on my list of top 10 live performances in the history of me. The whole band was amazing but take note, the drummer Taylor Hawkins was intensely and supremely talented and well worth watching.

If they come around again, and you don't despise the sound of their approaching footsteps...check it! OB has spoken!! :)

Fu%@ the Fu@#ing Fu#$*rs

Please, don't follow this link unless fowl (that's for you Juan...me spel gud) language occasionally makes you laugh. It's perportedly a Monty Python skit that was made into an audio which a clever gent then made into a video. Admittedly, this made me laugh so what does that say about me? :)

(see if you can spot the egregious spelling errors in aforementioned video!! Clearly animation and not spelling are his forte!)

Sidekick, Surprisingly Funny

Ok so I go to the Image website (for like, the first time ever. My geek cred falls slightly on the index) and check out Shark Man #1 as a free download and notice a comic titled, 'Sidekick'. I think, 'Eh, might be ok.' It's better than alright, especially for anyone who was a fan of the Tick (comic and/or animated series and/or the short lived and imho hilarious tv series). Written by Paul Sidekick (alter Ego, Paul Jenkins) and illustrated by Chris Moreno this first issue makes fun of superheroes, secret identities, the sidekick (the guy with the funniest lines in the issue and not incidentally the main character and narrator) Superior Boy (pizza boy by day, smart ass sidekick by night) and his hero/mentor(?) Mister Excellent. If the next issue is another like this first one, I'll be seriously considering putting it on my pull list.

Take That Fascist!!

Just when you thought Cap couldn't possibly be any more awesome...
He brings the pain, punching Hitler right in the chops!
Want more Classic Cap?

Edit: Somebody else took exception to Hitler this Saturday, ripping his waxy head off in a fit of rage!

The All New Classic Story Arc Review! This weeks review: Walter Simonson

Writer and Penciler: Walter Simonson
Inkers: Walter Simonson, Terry Austin and Bob Wiacek
Trade Paperback reprinting THOR #337-348
Published by Marvel Comics, 2001

Now, as everyone knows...Walter Simonson had his finest moment as a writer and artist on his run with Thor. When Walter Simonson jumped onboard with issue #337, he had his new creation BETA RAY BILL shatter the logo design that had been around since 1966 - but - this was just the beginning. Simonson completely revitalized the Asgardian universe with his compelling tales and majestic illustrations. His ability to realistically mix old Norse legends with the Marvel Universe made his run on THOR one of the most popular titles of the '80s, as well as, one of my personal favorites. The intrigues of Loreli, the epic and foretold treachery of Sutur who desires to helps to bring Ragnarok, Baldur and Karnilla's romance (shhh...having a girly moment here). Thor first encounters Beta Ray Bill, loses his original human identity and develops a new one. It slowly builds up to a big battle over something called "The Twilight Sword," This to me encompasses the Simonson run. His storytelling here, in conjunction with his artwork is unique and well worth collecting. Please, if you get a chance check out his arc, do. This lush and sweeping saga takes on a mythic era in human history and gives it fresh appeal. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

To me, this story arc encompasses epic storytelling and fantastic artwork and Walter gives 110% to the mythology that is Asgard.

Watch as Walter Draws Thor at a Convention....

(and check out his shirt, the guy has good taste! *grins*)

Ronald McDonald, Ninja

~~Best Ronald McDonald napkin in the history of EVER. And if you doubt the ninja skills of RM, check this video on Drunken Pumpkin. Word. ;) Edit: Elwood made the absolute best comment on this post today and I had to put the text on the post itself. Awesome...seriously.

I'll bet all of his signature moves are named after his products.

He starts off with the Quarter Pounder, and then he completely wrecks your shit with a Big Mac-Sausage Biscuit combo.

Then he lets you recover and get in a couple of shots, all the while setting you up for the McNugget double-tap (and you know where that lands).

While you're hunched over from that, he finishes you with the Hot Fudge McFlurry, so named for what it causes the victim to do after it's been applied to them.

Also, if you haven't rolled over to Chris's Invincible Super Blog today he has an awesome picture of snake eyes fighting....(wait for it)....a SHARK. Oh yeah, he rolls like that.
