I'd Call the New [AS] Show 'Mr. Pickles' Disgusting, But... Then It'd Win...

Sep
19

Adult Swim is premiering two new shows this week: one is Tim and Eric's Bedtime Stories, and the other is Mr. Pickles. Astoundingly, Tim and Eric have been outdone in terms of evoking disgust and revulsion, and that isn't necessarily a good thing for the new cartoon about a dog that is actually Satan, unbeknownst to his beloved boy companion Tommy.

Imgur User Makes Astoundingly Detailed Analysis of 'Interstellar's Hard Sci-Fi

Sep
19

Welp, if all copies of Interstellar were inexplicably lost, this Imgur user's analysis could reconstruct the film--or at least Endurance, the spacecraft from upcoming sci-fi blockbuster. The album is an eye-buggingly detailed explication of the hard-science principles used in the spacecraft's engineering. Simply put, I can't believe this was cobbled together from JUST TRAILERS, it's like an owner's manual, or a featurette out of an astroengineering textbook . . .

Hyrule Warriors Is the Mash-Up of Dynasty Warriors and Zelda We Never Knew We Wanted [Game Review]

Sep
19

Let’s get one thing out of the way up front. Hyrule Warriors is not The Legend of Zelda. It has none of the exploration, indefinable magic, or innovation of the series from which this title is spun from. That’s not to say we can't love it though. See, while Hyrule Warriors might be a touch repetitive at times, it draws enough lore from a beloved franchise, and the hordes of enemies you'll be slicing through should keep fans of that particular subgenre more than occupied.

Debbie's Inferno; An Odyssey of Insecurities, And A Kitty Spirit-Guide [Comic Review]

Sep
18

Anne Emond's cartooning is preoccupied with calling people out on their vanities, sillinesses, and emotional hiccups--all fitting practice for her first extended comic, Debbie's Inferno, which takes us on a journey through the troubled soul of one small and saggy girl named Debbie. It's adorably illustrated, maturely written, and sometimes hits too close to home for comfort.

Sep

It's testament to Made in Heights' songcraft that their albums sound like 'best-of' compilations--do these people write anything aside from catchy singles? "Ghosts" keeps that torch burning bright with 80s hip hop-inspired beats, a minimal atmosphere, and female vocals soft as wedding gowns.
