Track of the Day: The Japanese Ham-Radio Psych of Kikagaku Moyo

Jul
28

I've sworn off psychedelic music for good countless times, only to be dragged back into the fold by groups like Kikagaku Moyo (which translates to "geometric patterns"), who play an easy-on-the-ear mode of psych jams and uplifting experimental rock. Fans of J Mascis' alt-rock or contemporary space rock absolutely must apply.

The Mad Max Trailer Could Not Look More Mad Max

Jul
28

Well, the coolest trailer I've seen come out of Comic-Con this weekend has nothing to do with comics at all. Nobody is wearing tights and the hero isn't "super." Marvel and DC don't have their names on it and Joss Whedon didn't write it.

Leaked Footage of Nicki Minaj's Gem-Fused Character on Steven Universe

Jul
27

Cripes but some voice-acting castings are so spot-on: a video has recently leaked featuring Nicki Minaj and Aimee Mann's guest roles on Steven Universe, in which the two voice the supremely powerful, Gem-Fusion combos of Amethyst+Garnet and Amethyst+Pearl, respectively. The footage is absolutely action-packed, and Minaj knocks it out of the park as a gargantuan, wrecking ball-wielding, four-armed giantess.

ICYMI: The Leaked Teaser for Batman V. Superman Has Lots of Glow-y Eyes

Jul
27

Last night the teaser trailer that debuted at Comic-Con 2014 for the upcoming DC flick Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice went online thanks to one excited fan whose reaction was possibly better than the trailer itself. Seriously, get this man a vitamin water immediately.

Kaiju-gasm at Comic Con 2014: 3 New Monsters Revealed for Godzilla Sequel

Jul
26

No news for Pacific Rim 2 just yet aside from a 30-second video from Guillermo Del Toro, but possibly just as good for the kaiju-inclined: Legendary pictures revealed at Comic Con Day Two that there will be a Godzilla sequel, and it will feature three of the reptile rex's most recognizable foes from the original films.

Ken Kesey and Road Trip Mythology in Adventure Time's "Thanks for the Crabapples, Giuseppe"

Jul
26

On last night’s episode of Adventure Time, “Thanks for the Crabapples, Giuseppe,” Abracadaniel, Ice King, and a Volkswagen bus full of oddly chosen side-characters attempt the road trip of their lives. It's the eponymous time again!

Huffington Post Takes A Swipe At Sexless Nerds Via Megan Fox's Crop Top

Jul
25

Oh, HuffPo, weren't you supposed to be better than this? Considering that San Diego Comic-Con is one of the largest entertainment conventions in America, and that geekdom is turning into a pop-culture phenomenon, maybe it's time to shed some nasty stereotypes. I don't know what else this headline is supposed to evoke except the pimpled nerd who never even gets to see attractive women: Megan Fox's Crop Top Was Likely a Hit at Comic-Con. That plenty of nerds and geeks grew up awkward is undeniable, but maybe jibes in headlines are a little worn out. Most of us have grown up into perfectly functional adults unafraid to show our enthusiasm for things.

9 Games to Watch on Steam Greenlight

Jul
24

Whether Steam Greenlight will be going away, and what will replace it is still in the shadowy future. Dave Oshry has essentially said he’d like to make Steam an open distribution platform, but for now it’s a curated, community driven springboard that brings games that have excited the audience to the platform. Some are near the end of development, some are finished and some have months and months left, but they’ve all proven themselves worthy of attention. Here are nine that really caught my eye and mind.

Comixology Attempts to Recoup with Fans via DRM-Free Backups

Jul
24

In a bold yet understandable move, Comixology announced today at Comic Con that they will be offering users the option of DRM-free backups to purchased comics, thus enabling readers to share, modify, and actually own their purchases in every sense of the word. Of course the DRM-free option is still a decision made by the publishers themselves, it's still a step in the right direction towards regaining what supporters they've lost earlier this year.

Jul
23

Tonight was Preview Night for San Diego Comic-Con, and a bunch of fun announcements were made. Rather than just run a series of dry articles about them Andrew and I decided to put some of the more exciting revelations under the scalpel of our combined commentary. Below he is AT, and I am ED. Agree, disagree? Let us know in the comments.

Hemlock Grove Continues to be a Dick to Kids: Such Dire Stuff Recap

Jul

Okay, so it wasn't as bad as poorly titled Hemlock Diego's Policy Player's Dream Book, but I think I was seeing this episode through rose-tinted glasses thanks to its amazing opening.
