Thursday, December 18, 2014 at 12:10 pm

The most horrible toy-related story of the year, the Pony Cum Jar Project is the gift that keeps on giving. In case you missed it, it involves "self-love," a My Little Pony toy in a jar, and some accidental radiator overheating.

And now, courtesy of Krista Johnson, we have a song about it. Is "enjoy" the right word?

Ask Luke's Mother-in-Law: Mandalorians and Marijuana

Thursday, December 18, 2014 at 8:00 am

Martha Boyd is not just Luke's mother-in-law - she's also an ex-cop, a landlord, a self-described crazy cat lady, a major Star Trek geek and the widow of a green beret. So go ahead: ask her anything. And we mean anything.

Hi all,

Had the honor of having Malice and Risika from the Skirata Clan (Star Wars) at my house the other day. He is a wonderful Star Wars costumer - Mandalorian. The Clan is also building something special for the Anaheim, CA Convention in 2015. I understand it is going to be huge. I have attached a pic of the work in progress and also...how would you like this guy in your kitchen? By the way, he is also a great computer tech and got my system back on line and purring like one of the kittens again. Check out the Facebook page and like it at SkirataAliit. If you are interested in crafting your own Star Wars wardrobe you can reach them there. They have monthly construction parties here in Joshua Tree, CA. The clan also does great charity work and recently built a costume for a little girl who unfortunately just died of cancer - her pics are on the site - check them out.

Hobbit Hole, Meet Cat's Butthole

Monday, December 15, 2014 at 2:29 pm

In the kitty litter box, in the land of the Shire, lives a brave little Hobbit in a stench so dire. The cat took a shit, in his Hobbit hole; 'twas something encouraged, and now he knows his role...

BILBO! Bilbo Baggins. His home's a toilet now...
BILBO! Bilbo Baggins. His least favorite sound is now "Meow."

And that's how we introduce a new "Super-Fan Builds," in which a Hobbit hole litter box and Eye of Sauron scratching post are created.

Guile's Theme From Street Fighter II Sounds so Damn Pretty on Piano

Thursday, December 11, 2014 at 10:00 am

Composer / Pianist Sonya Belousova has previously played such themes as Akira and Tetris on her arcade-inspired piano, but for her latest inspired creation, she's decided to do a theme that will kick Bison's ass so hard, the next Bison wanna-be will feel it. Yes, it's Guile's music, the inclusion of which would have made the Van Damme movie substantially better (not that it doesn't RULE, but it could rule harder).

You can probably even dance to it if you like. Perhaps a waltz might be your choice, but for Bison it's a two-step.

A Human Centipede Christmas Song

From nerd-rockers Kirby Krackle, it's "I'm Stuck in a Human Centipede for Christmas." Well, somebody was going to do it eventually. It's a nice reminder that even when you're gifted with a disgusting fruitcake, there are worse things you could be eating.

Trailer Trifecta: The Little Prince, Pixar's Inside Out, WTC in 3D

Wednesday, December 10, 2014 at 12:08 pm

Question, fans of the book The Little Prince: who is that in the picture above?

Oh, you don't know? Of course not. Based on this trailer, she's an added character to whom the story of the book is told - by a seemingly old and crazy version of the narrator, who has been reimagined as a possibly senile wacky neighbor.

I'm sorry - were we so drowning in accurate adaptations of the much-loved, fine-as-is allegorical picture book that we needed a radically new reimagining?

The Avengers and Groot Sing Christmas Carols

Wednesday, December 10, 2014 at 10:00 am

Grootbells.jpg

Yes, it's another one of those supercuts that takes single words out of context and pieces them together into songs. But if smiling anyway when it's the Avengers and Groot doing it for a Christmas theme is wrong, well, you can sentence me to the Kyln for it. We are Groot.

If It's December, It Must Be Time for a New Christopher Lee Heavy Metal Christmas Carol

Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at 2:27 pm

Fresh from beating down ghosts with a staff in the new Hobbit movie - presumably using a stuntman, but you never know - Christopher Lee once again proves he is the most badass ninetysomething you will ever know of, turning "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing" into a song of praise to heavy metal itself. Three Christmases in to doing this, the former Lord Summerisle is now officially geek god of winter...and win.

It's Zod vs. Zod: Dawn of Awesome as Michael Shannon Stares Himself Down in New Music Video

Wednesday, November 12, 2014 at 2:00 pm

zodvzod.jpg

Say what you will about Man of Steel - I maintain that Michael Shannon is perhaps the only guy who could have pulled off nu-Zod without being automatically dismissed as inferior to Terence Stamp.

In this music video for Deerhoof's "Exit Only," he's doing his best Bizarro World Superman and Clark Kent types, staring each other down angrily in a cell as the all-out, powerful evil one blasts music, and the glasses-wearing alter ego loses a few teeth. I'm not sure which one is more terrifying.

Don't headbang too hard - remember, the snapping of necks is frowned upon in this dojo.
