Ho-hum. Another day, another gorgeous piece of artwork from Fiona Staples. The artist’s latest efforts are for the upcoming MoCCA Arts Fest in NYC.
Stanley Kubrick passed away fifteen years ago? Dios mio, mang. Getting old. The rickety bones. Mortality’s Scythe is looming, with incontinence already kicking in. I shall apply the momentarily salve of this glorious tribute to Stanny from Alexandre Gasulla upon my rotting corpus, knowing I’ll join Kubrick in the Ether someday (soon?).
WATCH: ‘TRUE DETECTIVE’ PARODY by ‘COMMUNITY’ stars Joel McHale and Jim Rash
One of the surest signs that you’ve made it as a cultural touchstone is when you begin getting parodied into Oblivion. It appears that True Detective has reached such status. ‘Cause True Detective has taken more than its fair share of (amusing?) potshots this week in anticipation Sunday’s finale. The latest one is courtesy of Joel McHale and Jim Rash of Community (and other sundry successes) fame.
The lovely Nadya Sonika has been featured here before. This time she is returning as DC’s Zatanna. It’s a pretty rad-ass get-up, makes me wish I had more of a clue as to the character’s background. She speaks backwards to cast spells, but after that…I’m lost. If only there was a device on the Internet for searching?! Alas. Anyways.
Scumbag Steve Rogers Is The Best
Marco D’Alfonso has created the most glorious thing I’m going to see on this Friday. It’s Scumbag Steve Rogers! Flat-brimming, world saving douchebag.
‘TOMB RAIDER’ going to pass 6 million in sales; franchise’s best-selling installment
I dug Tomb Raider. It was Uncharted meets Katniss, and that is fucking perfect to me. Ain’t no Hunger Games…game (I think?) and Nathan Drake is off getting his beauty sleep before being revealed in 1080p glory on the PS4. Others must have felt the same way as myself too, cause the son of a bitch is going to wind up selling like hot cakes.
‘SNOWPIERCER’ finally gets U.S. release date. Set for Summer 2014
Snowpiercer finally has its United States release date! And fucking guess what! It may be coming out in the summer, but the Weinstein Czars certainly have buried the release in a pile of the proverbial frosted flakes! Holy shit.
Bitcoin founder may have been tracked down. Is all, “I only heard of Bitcoin three weeks-ago.” Yeah! Okay!
How is that for a fucking headline? Ice cream headache much? To catch those of you lagging behind up: the creator of Bitcoin has been cloaked in anonymity since its creation. Newsweek was totally like, “Yo, we gotcha!” And the guy is all, “Naw, not even!” Then somehow one member of the AP ended up taking him out for sushi? Huh? Ain’t nothing normal about this crypto-thingy. No way.
EXPECTED: Sony is making ‘THE LAST OF US’ into a movie.
“Oh God, why do they have to adapt this? Good fucking luck!”, “Oh God, they’re adapting this flick, it would be perfect.” And I’m like in the middle of this shit covered in spittle, eating popcorn in my boxer-briefs, and dipping the kernels in the peanut butter smegma in my navel. Just sort of shrugging.
ICYMI: Buy These Flippin’ Comics!!! (3.05.14) – Dead Moon Knight
It’s Thursday, you knuckleheads. You’ve had over a day to pick up your tangi-loot or your digi-pull list. Hop on over to the OL watering hole and share your finds. Sure there are empty peanut butter jars in the water, and pubes in the cookies. But we’re nice. I promise.
Not fucking sure what dropped? The inestimable Johnny Hotsauce got your recommendations covered, including Caff’s pick (hi!) of the week: The Auteur #1.
