Real Life Superheroes?

One of my delights every month is the latest issue of Rolling Stone. 

Aside from still relevant musical coverage (hear that, Pitchfork? it’s called integrity), every month, each issue is filled with facinating articles that have little to do with the music world, but still grab and keep the readers attention.

THIS is one of those articles.

Not too surprisngly, the topic grabbed me fast – Real Life Superheroes.  But this isn’t in the way of everyday police are heroes, or anything like that…these are real people who have considered themselves superheroes, and have the costumes (and twisted lives) to prove it.

As soon as I read it, I knew that I’d want to share it with you…and luckily, Rolling Stone put it up to day.

Kick your feet up, and enjoy the read.

Free Comic Book Day Comics Announced!

I’m not gonna lie, I know Christmas is just around the corner, but I’m already getting excited for NERD Christmas.

What is NERD Christmas, you ask? Why it’s FREE FREAKIN’ COMIC BOOK DAY, which will be held on May 2nd for 2009.

The past few years of Free Comic Book Day have been very good to me…giving me the first taste of The Umbrella Academy and Atomic Robo, plus some free Scott Pilgrim action. Not to mention, most comic shops tend to throw some great bargins out to hook the new audience they build that day. So to say that I’m looking forward to next years? A bit of an understatement.

Luckily, Diamond wants to hook the nerds in early and often, so they’ve ALREADY announced the comics for this year’s FCBD.

What looks good? The Green Lantern: Blackest Night prelude could be rad, featuring the birth of the “Dark Lanterns”, literally zombie versions of the Lantern Corp.  Also, Red 5 Comics has me with their release of Atomic Robo & Friends. Finally, who can hate on a free FCBD2009 Minimate? I know I sure can’t!

Mark your 2009 calendars geeks, dweebs and weirdos! Our day is coming! And the comics: they are free.

GI JOE Posters Revealed!

Welp, we now have an OFFICIAL, crystal clear look at some of the cast of the GI Joe movie, as Paramount released a group of 4 character posters.

The posters depict Ray Park as Snake Eyes, Channing Tatum as Duke, Sienna Miller as Baroness and Marlon Wayans as Rip-Curl.

My big question though…what’s with all the character headshot posters these days?

The Christmas SPIRIT Is In The Air With These Clips

Welp, yesterday, I brought a hyperbolic, angry review of The Spirit.

Today, I bring actual footage, with 6 clips straight from YouTube.

Does this showcase how bad the movie is? Or is it enough to get you in the theaters on Christmas Day?

I’ll say this…I have a weakness for ScarJo in the cat-eye glasses.
