Captain, I’m detecting 180 beats per minute…

…so we may be under attack by the Skrillex, Basement Jaxx, possibly Moby. I suggest we defend ourselves with some phat beats.

Stan Lee! ‘Nuff Said!

The awesomeness of our last weekend was capped off by a quick meeting with the person who is behind some major popular culture for the last 50 years. It wasn’t always this way but in the last 15-20 years, comic book … Continue reading

My favorite villainous organization

Venture Brothers’ fans know it and love it. For the uninitiated, the easiest explanation would be say the Guild is a villain union that makes sure its members follow the rules plus they have a great dental plan. If you … Continue reading

MechaPops v. Skipszilla!

I hunted down Austin Rogers again at the convention for another commission since his Regular Show mashup from last year rocked! I asked him and he willingly complied. This year all I requested was something involving Pops and Skips, the rest … Continue reading

Scott Bakula

For my generation he is more famous for being Dr. Sam Beckett, the hero from Quantum Leap, a show I never saw much of but I knew its premise pretty well. Maybe I should watch that…now it’s my Netflix queue. … Continue reading

The Looney Tunes crew are back on a shirt!

It doesn’t quite follow the redesigned characters based upon The Looney Tunes Show but I think the design is relatively recent. How? The glasses on Bugs were seen over the last several years on Hipsters. Then again, the boom box is … Continue reading

Bruce Campbell

One of the greatest genre, character and bit actors in my lifetime. Bruce has starred in Army of Darkness, Evil Dead, The Man with the Screaming Brain and A Man Called Bruce. Plus memorable roles in Escape from LA, The Hudsucker Proxy, Congo, all … Continue reading

Happy Birthday Nick!

Fifteen years ago this little dude joined the relatively small Maggi Clan. It’s a bummer his b-day is during Thanksgiving but at least he doesn’t have to go to school today! Nick is now getting into the thick of being … Continue reading

William Shatner

The man, the myth, the legend! Sure people ridicule him but he is laughing all the way to the bank and having the time of his life. I personally think Shatner enjoys the work, especially after he was typecast by Star … Continue reading

Thor, the Dark World: Worth Seeing

I still stand by recommendation of the first Thor movie but I’ve always felt it was the weakest of the other Avengers movies. The hero’s journey part was cool. The letdown was the threat…a giant furnace monster. When the supporting characters steal the … Continue reading

I declare this week, Brushes with Greatness week

This year’s Comic Con is over, finally. The horrible weather made it somewhat of a chore but next year, it will be held during the first weekend of October. Before all the ACL Fest and F1 crap. Besides us spending too … Continue reading

Happy 50th birthday Doctor Who

Cut my story some slack for a couple reasons: I’m exhausted from Comic Con/Wizard World Austin and the UK is six hours ahead. If anybody spoils the special for me, so help me…Nelson, I’m looking in your direction ever since BSG. … Continue reading
