Hey folks! Sorry for the lac of posts! Something happened that didn’t allow me access to my WordPress account, but it’s all been figured out, at long last! And just in time to post some hilarious stuff! I do love IKEA, but I do wonder if some of their names for things are from a mythological realm. Enjoy!

Over at Naterade, the animator of said Tumblr promotes civil relations between peers in artistic and amazing ways. My favorite post of his is one where a good and bad relationship is contrasted against each other, and it all turns into something epic and nerdy! Who knows when aliens will attack the Earth? I’d better start playing nice with everyone I know to ensure I have allies for an upcoming attack by Martians!

Director Michael Bay on the set of his "UP!" Reboot.

Director Michael Bay on the set of his “UP!” Reboot.

Yup! You guessed it! Michael Bay is taking on one of the sweetest, most loving films of our time! Pixar’s “UP!” The said studio, and by extension Disney, lost the film rights to its own property. Now it’s in the hands of Michael Bay, and he’s planning some pretty epic things for it.

It’s going to be like nothing you’ve ever seen before! An old man goes on an explosive adventure to Paradise Falls and meets one disaster after another! Everyone wants more explosions, right? 

The trailer is already booming across the internet and fans are going nuts over it. 

Set for a May 29th release in 2015, theater owners are already being overwhelmed with advanced ticket orders for it’s opening night showing.

“I have no idea how we’re going to meet demand for this,” Says Edward Dumas, owner of the AMC theater in Grapevine, TX, “We may have to reserve all of our auditoriums for the opening weekend. Maybe even open up a-whole-nother theater just to show one film!”

The buzz over the “UP!” reboot is also generating rumors of other intellectual properties going straight to the Bay estate. Could this mean that already established kiddie shows like My Little Pony, Care Bears, and even Winnie the Pooh will be getting the Michael Bay treatment? Only time will tell.

 

Living here in the Denver area, I see a lot of amazing things –  the mountains are right next door, I have much more tolerable allergy attacks, there’s a bright green color on all the plants and trees, and a plethora of nice people walking around downtown. But never, in my 32 years of life on Earth, have I ever seen something as amazing as an old school Nintendo Introduction to the Twin Peaks!

Ok, so it’s always been a thing to be wary of dragons, and asking favors of them has really never proven fruitful. However, Benedict Cumberbatch certainly knows how to deliver the request of an awesomely dressed women sporting her LOTR buttons.

Mia, the trivia master-mind, has returned to Jimmy Kimmel. But this time she’s taking on the cast of the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie. You’d think a paid cast would know anything and everything concerning the characters they’re playing. Mia’s about to shame them all. Watch the entire video. It’s well worth it…

The View is diving into new stuff lately. This morning the hosting quartet took time to talk about Marvel Comics’ latest change in one of their most popular heroes, Thor. No longer will a male be wielding the mighty hammer. The official art and press release can be found over at the Mary Sue…

Marvel is excited to announce an all-new era for the God of Thunder in brand new series, THOR, written by Jason Aaron (Thor: God of Thunder, Original Sin) complimented with art from Russell Dauterman (Cyclops).

This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of Marvel’s “big three” – Captain American, Iron Man and Thor – Marvel Comics will be introducing an all-new THOR, GOD OF THUNDER. No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name THOR. Who is she? Where did she come from and what is her connection to Asgard and the Marvel Universe?

“The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription,” says Marvel editor Wil Moss. “The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute – she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!”

Series writer Jason Aaron emphasizes, “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before.”

THOR is the latest in the ever-growing and long list of female-centric titles that continues to invite new readers into the Marvel Universe. This female THOR is the 8th title to feature a lead female protagonist and aims to speak directly to an audience that long was not the target for Super Hero comic books in America: women and girls.

My prediction – 25% of the people will hate on this and allow it to consume their furry. The other 25% will take hold of this news and hold it up in the sky for all to see because “it’s awesome.”  The third 25% will reserve their judgement for when the stories come out, and the remaining 25% will be filled with people who really don’t care about comics and superheroes to begin with.

I’m wondering how the sales will be affected. I guessing they will go up for the first few issues, and then trickle back to where they are now after the excitement has died down. Either way, it should be fun to see how this plays out.
