Uncertain how official the story is, but it’s definitely intriguing. I’m not one who’s usually on board with the recent trend of companies giving purely evil characters a sympathetic twist, but this proves interesting. I haven’t played the most recent Zelda game so some of the references went over my head, but it didn’t detract from my overall enjoyment of the story. I look forward to seeing this continue!

Merry Christmas, Ya Bastitch!

Merry Christmas, Ya Bastitch!

You see, Even the nastiest of people celebrate the holidays.

I’ve been lagging in posting as of late. My apologies. Trying to start up my own illustration website/business has kept me quite busy. More than likely, that will be my focus for the next few months, so expect the slowness of posts to continue for a bit longer.

But it is Christmas, and I always try to say thank you to my readers at some point. All of my random, incoherent jargon constantly comes out on this site without a second thought, and you guys continually come back with good things to say. Thank you, dear readers, and Merry Christmas.

Australian news has a great sense of humor! At least I hope this is a legit news source. I really have no idea what paper this came from, but it’s proof that good things still exist in the world. Can you note the typos? (intentional or not)

The first line is true though – many lovers of Cumberbatch are sobbing. They lost their chance. Now they’ll have to choose amongst the many mere mortals as their soul mates. (life is tough)

So I don’t hate the Hunger Games story line. The concept, while not particularly original or new, is still a fun and action packed franchise both on screen and in the books. With the Hunger Games: The Mocking Jay Part 1 having been released just this past weekend, there’s a buzz about it with people who both loved and hated it. I haven’t been able to see it yet, but I’m sure I will within the not too distant future. But, in all honesty, while I can appreciate why so many go crazy over it and still enjoy the experience, the Hunger Games franchise isn’t one I really care that much about.

Just this morning I ran across a youtube channel, GakAttack, and found an amazing fan film that combined many famous weapons from all different sorts of stories; The Avengers arsenal, Light Saber wielding competitors, with a few anime and video game weaponry sneaking in there as well. (Can you spot the Super Smash Brothers shout out?) After seeing this video, I can say without a doubt that I would get WAY MORE excited about the Hunger Games if it was done as a mega awesome fan fiction instead.

That’s all, just wanted to have a little fun. Enjoy!

So I’ve known about JL8 for sometime now, but I never actually read the weekly comic strip. I decided I needed to hop on the bandwagon and see what every other fellow geek is going crazy over. Turns out, Yale Stewart’s weekly comic strip is even BETTER than I anticipated. He takes DC’s top heroes and tells tales of their 8 year old selves – but decked out in the popular costumes we all known and love. He keeps up to date with the latest trends of DC Comics as well as taking the problems of the common kindergartener and merges the two together.

I just finished reading strips #69 – 74, and I had the biggest nerdgasm of my life! It began with an assumption that I was sure was incorrect when I read strip #70. I thought the book store owner looked familiar, but it HAD to be a coincidence…right?

But as I got closer to the big reveal by strip #74, I began to wonder if this book store owner truly was who I thought he was – with his talk about the love of stories, how fantastically nice he was and patiently conversational, The revelation of who baby Superman and Batman were speaking to blew my mind. Now I’m, without a doubt, hooked!

By all means, continue reading below. And be sure to stop by the JL8 Tumblr and read more of the joyous FREE comic strip that Yale Stewart updates every week.

The best part about social networking sites are the random gems you run into that you never would have thought existed in the first. Sometimes those gems make you laugh REALLY hard, but sometimes they make you stop in shock and awe. I’m sure Mr. Wonder got paid a good chunk of change for this, but man, this seems a bit TOO heavy handed. Oh well, I guess this came out when video games were struggling with their popularity.
