Pure. Evil. Genius. Movie. This was a great way to spend an hour and a half of my life. It reminded me of why I used to love the Simpsons so much. One of the cleverest movies I’ve seen in quite some time.
Dark Horse has relaunched Dark Horse Presents as an online comic. You can find it HERE The first issue has a Joss Whedon story so you now know you have to check it out. Dark Horse Presents in the eighties launched a lot of careers and more importantly new comic thought. Let’s hope it follows that tradition in it’s online form.
I got the coolest Peas shirts from my brother yesterday. It has a Pirate Pea and an octupus on it and it’s better than anything I could draw. Ill try to take a picture of it for everyone soon.
This weeks Peas Comic has Bob dealing with his new Tv purchase. OH WHAT DRAMA!
So on a day where there was supposed to be announcements galor we get this new Star Trek poster(oohhh retro) and confirmation that Zachary Quinto (SYlar from Heroes) is spock and Lenoard Nimoy is coming back to. and that’s it. Oh well if they are really going to start filming in November, it won’t be long till we hear who is going to be Kirk.
Indiana Jones posters are cool too. 2008 may be the best Geek year ever. It’s nice to always think that, but frankly this year has been outstanding.
I really like Bomberman Live. 8 players doing nothing but blowing each other up. And it’s so cute that I always find it funny when people with gears of wars gamertags are playing it. Both games your mission is to kill, but you couldn’t find two farther examples of killing than Bomberman’s cute I win! to the chainsaws of Gears. Anyway, point is I suck at Bomberman Live. Havent won one silly tournament. I need to get better or the enjoyment will seriously wane. I need a trainer, are you up to the challenge?

Last night I worked the Harry Potter release. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many people in a retail establishment in my life. Tonight at work may be just as bad as all the people who didn’t stay up late come swarming in. I wonder how long it will be till we see this kind of phenomenon in bookstores again. It may never happen. Harry benefited alot from the fact that popular culture became a machine sometime in the 80′s especially children’s popular culture. It’s such a media driven market now, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. But will a new series build it’s audience with each release the way Harry did? One can only hope.
