Golf is often stereotyped as a pastime of the rich - and who's richer than Bruce Wayne? Tumble over the links like a deranged millionaire playboy in this Nolanverse-styled Batmobile cart - having to actually play the game of golf is a small price to pay for being able to scare any superstitious, cowardly lots on the green.
What isn't a small price, however, is the tab for the cart itself, currently commanding an eBay "buy it now" charge of $17,500, and Rao knows how much on top of that for shipping. You don't have much time to raise the funds if you want it - three days are remaining on the auction. Sniper bidders may even come to the fore at the last minute...but that's just par for the course, isn't it?

Oh, you didn't know? Your ass better Kal somebody...
Look snappy - neck-snappy, that is, honest to Zod - in this leather jacket, pants and boots combo made to replicate the Kryptonian undies worn by Henry Cavill. Where's the cape? Well, just like in the movie, you'll need a team of digital animators to add it later. This limited-edition outfit from UD Replicas will run you around $1,250, but it's only available for preorder through Dec. 14th. It's also available in dream-sequence black variant.
And remember, folks, just like the picture shows, nothing completes your overall Superman look like a shaved head and sunglasses.More >>
This is a fantastic example of misdirection. You get so fixated on what a great job they did with the costume - proving that the original can look great in live-action without much modification - that you completely don't notice the fact that the entire lower face is latex prosthetics.
Until the creators spoil the illusion with a time-lapse video of how they did it, of course...More >>
For those who might have found the fast food contest gender or region skewed, here's one with something for everybody. TVStoreOnline, a one-stop shop for sweatshirts, hoodies, PJs, underwear and more inspired by the tops in pop-culture, have partnered with us to offer a prize for the Warsie or the Brony in your life...and odds are if you're reading this, you are one or the other, or both.
Because I really don't want to read your Star Wars/My Little Pony fan fiction, we'll make this a much simpler contest. Keep reading for the rules.More >>
The unnamed author of the blog The Happening Book recently recovered his old second-grade journal, and is posting each entry online, 35 years to the day since it was written. His adult self adds significant events and context to each drawing and vintage thought. For example, under the image above: "Like Han would ever let R2 pilot the Falcon. Pfft."
As he puts it, "Leafing through the now-yellowed pages, I was immediately struck by waves of nostalgia, but also recognition -- so much of what I cared about then are things I still care about now."
I feel like maybe we were the first generation that had that cultural permission to keep those same interests. I'm a little younger, but even in the words from that era of somebody I don't know personally - I too feel recognition.
Hope, according to Emily Dickinson, is the thing with feathers. But for some people, fear can be a thing with feathers, too. Put simply, birds can be scary as crap. Napoleon Dynamite clearly felt it, when he anxiously asked his employer "Do the chickens have large talons?"
This being Turkey Month, so to speak, and with the amusing, imaginatively silly Free Birds now in theaters, it seems like a good time to pay tribute to a few of pop culture's more memorable beastly birds. A pre-emptive note, however: I've chosen to omit The Birds, Hitchcock's near-masterpiece of 1963, not because it isn't a classic, but because its feathered fiends are experienced in the aggregate, as a massive collective menace, and I'm after big-ass birds, preferably with individual personalities. No disrespect intended. Please don't peck my eyes out.

There's nothing quite like a console launch to get gamers riled up. At the start of the 2013 holiday shopping season we're graced with not one but two major console launches: the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. This is great news for gamers, because having the two dominant console companies throw down at the same time means innovation, inventory and affordability. It also means that if you've been telling the kids no to the Wii U thus far, you won't have any problems finding one this holiday season.
In recent years, a large part of the excitement of console launches is seeing who can actually get one. With the wonders of Internet shopping, it was pretty easy to ensure that you got the console of your choice on launch day, provided you made the leap to pre-order before you actually knew the specs. Even still, it was possible for some time to ensure that your system would be arriving at your home on launch day, but where is the fun in that? Why sit in comfort at home waiting for the UPS truck to arrive with your bundle of electronic joy when you can instead freeze your collective asses off waiting in line in hopes of being one of those lucky, procrastinating (or poor) few who couldn't or wouldn't pre-order, who end up walking out victorious?
This is the first time I've used this feature not necessarily as a recommendation, but an acknowledgement that this is the geek apparel item that people are talking about the most. I swear, I haven't seen so many people mad at Hot Topic since they started carrying Justin Bieber merchandise.
And this ironically means they are, in fact, living up to their name. Just maybe not in the way they meant to. Let's discuss...More >>
Last week, in the new Robocop trailer, Samuel L. Jackson asked why Americans are so robophobic.
It's really quite simple: robosexuals creep us out.
I confess to being rather glad that I lived out my entire adolescence before the whole "body pillows with sexy drawings on them" became a thing. I would almost certainly, embarrassingly, have owned one if Kim Cattrall had licensed her Mannequin persona for merchandising. But never in a million years would it have been of Arcee.
The Etsy vendor's rhetorical question has my attention. "Who is more cuddly than a giant alien robot made of hard gears and sharp metal?" Indeed. He (it HAS to be a he, right?), then answers, "Well, probably everyone. Few snuggly creatures could beat a robot pillow, however."
Look, even if the fantasy could be real, god help you if your member gets stuck when she has to transform.
OH HOLY SHIT they did a sexy Starscream one too. Maybe it isn't a dude. But the feedback from one customer is ecstatic, noting, "What more could any TF fanperson ask for, than to fall asleep next to the robotic object of your undying flesh creature affection. :) "
Sad thing is, I'll bet this same person was upset by Michael Bay's robo-scrotum.
UPDATE: I've been told that I "genderfailed" by assuming the artists were male, and they aren't. Actually, my initial assumption was that the seller was male. If women want to claim these for their gender...by all means, go for it. I'm happy to lift the blame from guys one time.
