Maybe I’m out of the loop here but I recently discovered this whole Marvel Universe Live! thing by accident on Youtube! Anyway this is like a dream come true for the 10 year old me…..and… the current day me too it seems!
Well Marvel is all the rage these days with all of the movies still drawing absurd amounts of money so this here I guess isn’t that much of a surprise I suppose. The whole Marvel Universe Live is like Ice Capades but jam packed with Marvel Comics characters both popular and rather obscure-minus the ice skates. This has become a touring show and this trailer was was recently released check this shit:
Looks pretty fly huh? Well check out this live footage of The Hulk looking pretty awesome & doing some serious battle! Now THIS is fun:
The whole thing follows a story loosely inspired by the movies but we get a bunch of villains as well as a more classic look of costumes ripped from the classic comic books!
Anyway call me crazy but this looks like damn good albeit totally ridiculously stupid time, so check your local listings because Marvel Universe Live is on tour now! It look s like it costs around 25 bucks. It hits my city, Portland, Oregon March 3-6th at the Moda Center!
Ok, so that’s not true in the least! Russell brand is NOT up for the role of the Walking Dead character (not that I know of at least) but the more and more I see Jesus in The Walking Dead comic books the more and more I think that artist Charlie Adlard is basing his likeness off Mr. Brand! Could Mr. Adlard be a Trewser?!

So hey who knows maybe I’ll start some buzz here to get the comedian the role? Not to say he’s looking to be on the show, but I’m a big fan of Brand these days and his “Trews” alternative media news program. If you haven’t already checked it out it’s pretty hilarious and he’s totally dead on with things in the political spectrum of the world.
As far as if he appears in the tv show and who will play the gay badass in the television series remains a mystery but I am going to call it here-let’s get Russell Brand to play Jesus I mean he already looks the part and I’m quite sure he’d be a welcome addition to the show!! Let’s make it happen! Can’t you see the resemblance?
Here’s Brand…he wouldn’t even need to change his appearance one iota!
And finally some Trews!!
Ever have a memory of a TV show as a kid that as an adult you couldn’t remember what it was called or for that matter if the thing even really existed? Well today I want to spotlight one of those very lost/found memories in way of an old Halloween special waaay back from 1981 called “The Crown of Bogg”!! What makes this one special you might wonder?
Well being a big fan of puppets (I mean who isn’t right?) this one was made by none other than Paul Fusco, the damn creator of ALF!!! Well this one aired long before Alf was gobbling up cats on nationwide tv it’s nonetheless just as charming and weird! This one might bring to mind classics like The Fraggles with it’s strange muppet style, wacky songs and humor. With a character names like “King Mildew” you know this one is worth a watch if you’re looking for a odd long lost Halloween special to tune into before you watch some more well known classics!! Check it!! Damn how I do love Youtube!!
Ok so we’re four episodes into the final, yes FINAL season of Dexter! I’ve been a big fan of this show since the very beginning, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t had my problems with the series. Some seasons felt rehashed, too formulaic and predictable, however I’ve stuck with it and season seven proved that there was still plenty of life (or should I say death) left in the series for it’s final season.
Season 8 started out strong, but the show seems to have become a bit unbelievable over time, I mean really, how many damn serial killers can Miami possibly have runnin’ around all the time? It’s really took eight seasons for anyone really to catch on to Dex (besides Dokes of course)? Deb really was in love with Dexter?! Well now we have Deb finally at least trying to deal with the fact that her brother is a serial killer but we also have a new character, Dr. Evelyn Vogel, a neuro-psychiatrist specializing in child psychopaths, who’s now revealed that she treated Dexter as a child and dealt directly with his father helping come up with the code that Dexter has lived by for close to his entire life. She needs Dexter to save her from a rival serial killer she treated in the past who’s back for revenge. Sounds intriguing huh? Yeah, well it also screams of some terribly predictable outcomes. So here are my predictions for the end of Dexter, I wanted to document them here, short and sweet to see if they are able to throw in any real twists we didn’t see coming.
So first off I am predicting that Dr. Vogel is this seasons villain and the ultimate final boss. The mastermind. I see that she’s going to be revealed to be responsible for Dexter becoming a serial killer. It was her idea all along, she admires these killers she makes them, pits them against each other as some sort of experiment. It’s going to be revealed that Dexter didn’t have to go this route with the ‘code’. She pushed it along and made him what he is today. It also seems apparent that Vogel was in some way responsible for Dexter’s father’s murder.
It will also be revealed that Vogel had in fact “treated” many of the rival serial killers that Dexter has squared off against in previous seaons, like “The Ice Truck Killer”and Lithgow’s “Trinity”. This will enrage Dexter to perform one last kill on her. It will also give Dexter a chance at a new life and thus give him forgiveness from Deb which he desires so badly. He will realize that he does have a chance at being normal, I predict he won’t be caught or killed. Dexter will make the choice and change his life and for once be at peace.
So there it is, how off am I? Will they throw in a real twist and have Dexter die? Will he be turned in or killed by Deb? Will his son somehow end up on the same path as Dexter? Will Dexter reunite with Hannah in Brazil after he escapes the clutches of Miami Metro? What do YOU think?!!
I just had to at least comment on the nerdcore hip hop news story of the day! If you haven’t heard, MC Chris, semi famous geek rapper, most well known for his voicing of MC Pee Pee Pants on Aqua Teen Hunger Force, finally takes some shit for kicking a fan out of one of his recent shows. Yeah he pretty much kicks people out on a regular basis for stuff like, smoking, being drunk, yelling shit, singing along and putting drinks on the edge of the stage. Basically for you know, having a good time!?
You can find a lot of these clips on Youtube and honestly they’re pretty fucking ridiculous. It seems that MC Chris maybe grew up never attending a live musical event? Ever been to a real rock show? He seems like a quite an ego maniac and considers himself a nerd god, proving most likely that not all nerds are “nice guys”.
That video above is because some kid said the opening rapper “had no soul.” Ummm….who gives a shit!? Aren’t nerds allowed to have musical opinions too? It’s just funny to me how pissed off he gets at the wimpy nerdy “insults”. Jeezus dude it’s not that big a deal you act like Lucas added more voice over dialogue to The Empire Strikes back or something!
This time though he kicked a kid out of a show because of a tweet he made about MC Chris’ opening act Richie Branson before the show. I guess the kid showed up to the show and Chris asked who he was out to the audience, once he found out he kicked him out of the venue. So what was this incredibly offensive vicious wack ass tweet this kid posted? It went like this:
“Dear nerd rapper opening for Powerglove/mc chris. You’re not good enough to pander to me. Better luck next time.”
Wow. That shit’s crazy huh?!! Dayum!! It seems nerdcore rappers get their feelings hurt pretty easily these days huh? Good thing he’s not a Gansta rapper huh? He’d have to kick out everyone from his damn shows! Anyway, I just had to take a moment to tell Chris to mellow the fuck out! Who cares if some nerdy pimply teen doesn’t like the opening act for cryin out loud! Your pushin’ 40 dude! I guess this topic has gotten a lot of negative press for MC, as now tons of people are posting their own stories about Chris and how much of a dick he is to all of his fans. You can check the whole story out here
Well it seems to me Chris has gotten a little to big for his tiny lil’ britches. Seems to me he just enjoys the whole power of being able to kick people out perhaps? Maybe it makes him feel like Darth Vader or or a nerdy Donald Trump?!! His Facebook page is pretty crazy right now it seems. I personally think it’s kinda funny actually. I think MC Chris is a pretty rad rapper but far from a nerd god. So all you fans out there who are tired of his BS I suggest you move on to new horizons. You can all start with some Mister Saturday 😉
I personally have never really totally understood the whole Lego phenomenon, I mean I have always liked Legos just fine. I loved them as as a kid but never understood the whole Lego versions of things that transformed into video games like say, Batman Lego, Star Wars Lego or Indiana Jones Lego video game style…but maybe I have a new appreciation now for all things LEGO! How can you not when you see punk rock in the Lego universe, it’s all starting to make a little more sense-check it!
It seems everyone these days are going absolutely ape shit over The Walking Dead TV series! I personally have only seen the first season and the first two episodes of the second season. I have however been collecting the comic book from the start. Well I bought issue number one when it came out way back in 2003, but after reading it dismissed it as a flash in the pan, 28 days later wanna be series. I even sold the first issue a few months later for thirty bones on Ebay. I was a happy guy. Well about three months later I was at my local comic shop and saw they had The Walking Dead trade paperback there collecting issues 1-6. They made a promise saying that if you didn’t like it they’d return your money. So there I was reading TWD trade and LOVING it! I started collecting all the issues from #7 on and it became my favorite monthly comic.
About a week ago former Universal Dork blogger “The One From Beyond” sent me a text message saying I should consider selling the old back issues as they are causing quite a bit of controversy on Ebay. So checked it out and WOW….people if you own these back issues you may have a dilema on your hands…to sell or not to sell? I have seen issue number one go on ebay recently for over $7000.00. Which really makes me kick myself for selling it back in the day. Luckily I have my old issues 7-current. I recently listed all of my issues through number 38. Issue number 19 has gone recently on ebay for $1600.00 mine ends tomorrow and I can only dream of getting that much for it. There are also other key issues that are pretty sought after like the first appearance of The Governor and issue 61 with the CHEW preview.
So did I do the wrong thing? Are these issues going to go even higher as the show progresses? Or are they the comic book equivalent of a Beanie Baby or Cabbage Patch Kid? It’s a gamble. I however say I gotta get it while the getting is good. Like my last post stated I am a little tired of the zombie craze at this point. I do still like TWD every month but just not as much as I did four years ago. But a heads up to all my fellow Dorks out there your Walking Dead comics are gold, once again us nerds rule……
Oh by the way you should go bid on my Walking Dead #19 😉
Wonder Woman was being planned as a tv show long before Lynda Carter donned the costume and wow was it whole mess of crazy. Seriously check out this screen test for the proposed pilot for the late 60’s Wonder Woman. Watching this clip seriously makes my brain hurt and Wonder Woman’s mom needs to take a serious chill pill already!!!
Then when Wonder Woman finally does appear it get even more creepy as it’s obvious living with her mother has given her serious mental problems! It’s no wonder this was never given the green light-can you imagine a whole half hour of this shit?!And what’s up with her saggy bottoms?! What the hell is going on with her and that mirror? Well see for yourself as it will make you even more thankful for Lynda Carter!!
I just saw this image released today by Marvel studios for The Avengers movie that’s set to be released in less than a year! So far Marvel has kept any images of this new Hulk on lock down.The image below is just a painting I realize but so far so good I say, at least for the time being. Still even today it makes me a little angry that Norton and Marvel couldn’t get over their shit and have Edward back for the Avengers. But with Mark Ruffalo now playing Bruce Banner we at least get to see yet another version of The Hulk. Hopefully this version will be better that the last two movie’s fairly phony looking Hulks.
Wow I am sooooo blown away by the news that I just heard I feel like I must be dreaming! It seems that a certain incredible creative team is getting ready to blow some life back into the Hulk again in a big way! Apparently Guillermo Del Toro and David Eick of Battlestar Galactica fame will teaming up to bring us a brand spankin’ new vision of the Hulk for our TV screens according to Deadline.
This is probably the BEST Hulk news yet as everyone knows Guillermo knows how to make a good comic book movie (Hellboy, Blade 2) and certainly knows how to bring a monster to life!! It seems that Del Toro will be directing and Deadline reported this little interesting bit of info that also makes me sing with glee to the jade giant: “Del Toro will also oversee the designing of the Hulk character, which is expected to draw on previous comic book incarnations, as well as the original 1978-82 Incredible Hulk TV series, with a few wild tweaks on the old look. Unlike the two Hulk movies, in which the monster was a pure CGI creation, the series will employ a mixture of prosthetics, puppetry and CGI.”
Finally!!! A realistic version of the Hulk to look forward to! Continue reading
