Create Your Own Donut, And Win $12K!

mydonut

Here’s another great way to kill time on the internet.

Do you like donuts?

Do you like winning $12,000?

This is the site for you, as Dunkin Donuts is looking for YOU, yes, YOU to create their next big donut. Just mess around with some different controls, make your flavor combos, and submit it, and WHAM, you could win 12 grand and have your donut featured in shops across the country.

That donut up top is my creation.  I call it The Smore.  Marshmellow filling, chocolate frosting, and graham cracker bits.  Sounds tasty.

…and makes me sad it’s not real.

Things I Should Hate But Don’t: Wolverine Art Appreciation Month

Alright nerds, earn your cred with this bit of triva: What Marvel hero is celebrating his 35th Anniversary this April?

Any guesses?

Anyone?

Ok, It’s Wolverine.  And sure, while he doesn’t need the exposure, what with the movie and being in basically every comic anyway, Marvel has launched a really cool way to celebrate this anniversary.

How? Through the time honored tradition of variant covers. But not just any variant covers, they’re ones that show Logan as interpreted in various art styles.  Sounds wacky, but it turned out awesome, like the Van Gogh style Wolvie above.

My only complaint? The odd mix of titles this is being done on…check the list:

AGENTS OF ATLAS #3

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #590

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #592

CAPTAIN BRITAIN AND MI13 #12

DAREDEVIL #118

EXILES #1

GHOST RIDER #34

HULK #11

INCREDIBLE HERCULES #128

MOON KNIGHT #29

MS. MARVEL #38

RUNAWAYS #9

SECRET WARRIORS #3

UNCANNY X-MEN #508

WAR MACHINE #5

WOLVERINE: FIRST CLASS #14

X-MEN: LEGACY #223

Like…4 of those titles feature Wolverine, max.  Why couldn’t we have gotten a sweet art book, instead?  I guess they’re using it to highlight some less read titles, but ultimately, what an odd idea.

Behold, THE MOST METAL COMIC EVER…

DETHKLOK VS. THE GOON, coming in JULY!

Yes, it’s real. See the trailer below.

And given my good friend’s The Protomen‘s connection to The Goon (having played The Goon’s 10th Anniversary show last weekend) could we be in for the GREATEST BAND TEAM-UP OF ALL TIME?

…I sure hope so.

Where Are The Wild Things? In This Poster!

Above is the pretty darn rad poster for Spike Jonze’s adaptation of the classic children’s book Where The Wild Things Are.

Personally, I’ve been super excited for this film ever since Jonze was announced as director, and while his troubles to take this book to the big screen are well documented, I really think it’s going to pay off.

For a peak at the film, we’ll have to wait until the March 27 release of Monsters vs. Aliens, to which the first trailer will be attached.  Me thinks we’ll see the trailer online either shortly before, or shortly thereafter. For a taste of what it could be, check out this test footage embedded below.  I think you’ll agree, this could be a classic in the making.
