I don’t know of anyone who didn’t love Guardians of the Galaxy, and luckily we’ll get another dose of our titular heroes in…uh…Gnardians of the Galaxy. Wood Rocket is producing a new porn parody of the MARVEL movie and, while all we have to go on is the poster (below) , I think it will accomplish the intended purpose. (more…)
When wrestling Superfan Kris Laufer and his group of wrestling cosplayers showed up at this week’s RAW in full costume, you’d think that WWE staff would be impressed, excited, and welcoming to such incredible cosplay. Seriously, what better way to show fans are pumped up than when they cosplay some of wrestling’s favorite characters? Turns out, that wasn’t the case and the group was forced to choose: Wear their costumes or lose their front row ($100) tickets to the event. (more…)
Springfield, the capital of the great State of Illinois. It was the place Abraham Lincoln came to in 1831 to being his law practice and later his political career, sitting in the legislature there as part of the General Assembly. Of course, Lincoln is not the only great Springfieldianite to contribute positively to the fabric of American society. The Flower City was also home to Civil War general and later President Ulysses S. Grant, founder of General Foods Marjorie Merriweather Post, and the famed frontman for Morris Day and the Time Morris Day. But now the reputation of the City of Springfield is forever tarnished as Mayor J. Michael Houston has given the keys to the city to Cobra Commander. Yes, that Cobra Commander. (more…)
If you live in North America, and anywhere west of the Rockies, then you’re probably freezing right now. Perhaps you can be comforted and warmed by the idea that, at least, you’re not going thorough it alone, but as it stands right now, forecasters are saying that this is going to be the coldest February on record. Being completely irrational human beings, people are looking for someone to blame. For the cold. And the good folks in Police Department of Harlan City, Kentucky, think they’ve found the culprit, Princess Elsa from Disney animated movie Frozen. Presumably, Mr. Freeze, Captain Cold and the X-Man Iceman have been accounted for, so a warrant has been issued for the immediate arrest of Elsa. (more…)
Word is out today that an old childhood favorite from those wonderful Kroft Brothers is making its way back into production with Amazon Studios. Sigmund and the Seas Monsters has been ordered to pilot with a redesigned and upgraded look. Could this be the start of a revival for more of those classic 70’s Saturday morning kids shows?
We all know how far people will go when it comes to making sure their Cosplay outfits are up to scratch. With a myriad conventions becoming worldwide institutions and attracting bigger crowds every year such as San Diego Comic Con, the photographs of some of these outfits are sublime. Moreover, in recent years there have been outfits that have been the result of much blood, sweat and tears, such as the vast array of superhero outfits like Xenomorphs, Predators, Mech Suits and Iron Man replicas that provide us all with something to marvel at (did you see what I did there?). As it stands, most people know just how far to take it but there are always a minority of individuals’ out there that like to take things that little bit further, toying with the translucent lines of societal norms. Which brings us to this absolutely insane Redskull cosplay (more…)

This just might be the one problem in space and time itself the good Doctor can’t talk his way out of, or fix with the quick use of his sonic screwdriver. A couple in Florida built a replica TARDIS, because: (A.) They are huge fans of the show, and (B.) They wanted to use it in their wedding photos. Their themed wedding pictures went off without a hitch and the happy couple found a spot, temporary most likely, for the TARDIS in the driveway. Then the one power in the universe that even the Doctor wisely fears reared its ugly head, the dreaded Lexington Home Owners Association of Tampa Florida. (more…)

Making headlines this week is the magnanimous decision from Sony Pictures to pull Seth Rogen and James Franco‘s The Interview from theatrical release.
The hackers that lifted the curtain to Sony’s internal workings threatened violent actions against theaters showing The Interview. Despite The Department of Homeland Security citing no credible information to indicate an actual threat, Sony had allowed theaters to make the decision to show the film or not. With theater chains defecting en masse, Sony Pictures Entertainment has pulled the planned Christmas release of The Interview.
Did Sony not see White House Down? – “We Do Not Negotiate With Terrorists!”. This reaction has sent a powerful message to terrorists. Sad day. Here’s why… (more…)
