To the victor go the spoils; not to mention the eventual
writing of the histories. One of the things this leads to is everyone and their
brother pointing to things that were “the beginning of the end” for the loser
that weren’t seen as anything of the kind at the time and, frankly, may not
have actually been anything of the kind. When it comes to WCW, the eventual
postmortems on the company began to create narratives about many people and
events; some of which have already easily been proven to be not wholly
Some of these are harder to definitively prove or
disprove as there are no truly factual ways to do it. It’s all merely opinion
claiming to be proof of cause and effect. But some of it might not quite be
what the eventual post-WCW narratives and conventional wisdom has made them out
to be. One such event is what has become known as The Fingerpoke of Doom.
Once in a lifetime that one movie comes along that is
thought-provoking.It tackles the social
issues, changes the way the world looks at humanity and even politics, and
leaves you questioning everything you ever thought you knew on a deep
Yeah...this is not that movie.It has flying arrows and explosions and big
guns and jet packs and big freaking talking planets.It's just insane, mind-numbing fun. You'll walk out of the theatre soaking wet from peeing your pants with laughter and from crying your freaking eyes out. You want social commentary, go watch a documentary. Spoilers for the so far non-initiated, so I am Groot.Er, Imean, you’ve
Back in December of 2015 Phantom, Chad J. Shonk, and I recorded a podcast about the revival of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (or, as I'm going to abbreviate it from here on out MST3K). We discussed our hopes and fears, as well as what made us love the original show so much. So now that the new episodes are finally here I'm back to let you know what I think.
I wasn’t too sure what to expect from this particular
Harley Quinn action figure.
Preview images made it look like it would have the
articulation of DC Collectibles’ Icons line, but weren’t clear about the scale.
I’m pretty sure this first series was solicited prior to the handy scaling
chart that DCC uses in Previews now.
“From the minds of mortal men, the mightiest of
machines- TRANZOR Z!”
It was 1985, and a handful of former Sunbow Productions
employees who were involved with the very successful Star Blazers television
series unleashed the first production from their own brand new company, 3-B
Productions. This was an adaptation of Mazinger Z- not even the first one
–for American television that would go by the name Tranzor Z.
It's hard to believe it's taken this long for me to get around to smashing this uncomfortable, taboo topic, but here we are finally. There's a lot about human sexuality that we don't fully understand. In this case it's because there's not a lot of research on it, because it's just downright too weird for most people to dwell on. It's a seemingly uncommon affliction, yet high profile people throughout history like Herod the Great and Charlemagne are allegedly guilty of these debauched acts. In case you haven't figured it out by now kids, I'm talking about necrophilia.
Today is my birthday, so I’m taking it easy with yet
I wasn’t going to post anything today, but I knew Tuesday
night at work was going to be slow so I went ahead and started this. In no
particular order, here are forty-one of my favorite things at the moment:
