Much like crude forms of sampling existed before purpose built sampling technology, mash ups existed before non-linear editing equipment and digitized media made it easy. Just as tape trading thrived before Bandcamp, bootleg VHS tapes made the rounds of the country, doorstep to doorstep and hand to hand before YouTube. Though often these tapes were violent, pornographic or just plain bizarre, plenty were pet projects, experiments and forgotten cult classics that refused to die. So it is with this nearly thirty year old mash up of Disney's Winnie the Pooh and Apocalypse Now.
There's a helluva lot more than only four great Kickstarter comics projects per week, but in the interests of limited time and space, here are our absolute must-see projects: the life and times of orgasmocentric psychologist Wilhelm Reich in deadpan black and white, a claustrophobic deep-sea conspiracy of resource scarcity, hide and seek in the last urban metropolis, and so much more!
Today we unveil a handful of songs that focus on infidelity in relationships, but in a relatively positive manner. While these are primarily from the cheater's point of view, we end up exploring some other rather unique perspectives as well.
Hey Folks! This week, I felt like looking up the longest running scripted television shows in American as of today. This means that any show currently on air right now counts, excluding news programs and reality TV (because who cares, right?). To simplify things, I’m also only counting shows airing during Prime Time (7pm-11pm), which means no Sesame Street, Power Rangers, or Saturday Night Live.
To the surprise of many, Destiny feels strangely uninterested in its own story. There's a huge amount of lore hidden away in the Tower and Grimoire, but overall, the game doesn't really spend a whole lot of time explaining things to you. By the end of it, there are way more mysteries than there are answers.
Oh my god, Rocket's head, I'm dying. The above image is from an ongoing anime series in Japan called Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers and while it's not particularly good by most accounts, it will have the distinction of being the next show to featured the Guardians in animated form.
Well that didn't take long did it? It seems that Destiny's "level cap" of 20 can be reached well before the end of the story content. Luckily for those that want to stick with the game though, this isn't the end of your character's progression.
In this episode and alien seizes a child in the middle of a hallway, asks Deanna Troi, “What is this?” and then proceeds to offer the child candy, and everybody is okay with this. The exact scenario that your parents warn you about has just unfolded and it’s no big deal. Obviously the child is supervised, but nobody really knows what this alien intends. It’s a first contact. He might insist on stuffing the kid so full of candy that he dies. He may have worked up some kind of Willy Wonka nightmare treat using the replicator that will turn the kid into a blueberry. None of them knows! First contacts are always a little bit focused on certain points the writers with to make rather than believability.
It’s been less than 72 hours since Destiny's release and in true obsessive fan style, followers of the game are already finding ways to exploit Destiny to their cruel advantage through cheats and glitches.
The Teen Titans have a long history of comic book appearances, but if you're anything like me, you know them best from the 2003 TV series. That, or the recently revived incarnation of the show, which despite its comedy focus, is actually not bad. Now it seems the Titans might finally be making their way to live-action, with a pilot in the works at TNT.
Shigeru Miyamoto is taking a break from video games to try his hand at filmmaking. He'll be directing his first animated short, starring the Pikmin,and titled Pikmin Short Movie. Here's to hoping he's better at making movies than he is at naming movies.
Someone really wanted to challenge President Obama to a Pokemon battle. Earlier today, a man dressed in a Pikachu hat and shirt, and holding a stuffed Pokemon toy, jumped the White House fence and made a ru for it. He obviously didn't make it far before he was apprehended by Secret Service agents, although the White House went into a temporary lockdown anyways, just in case Team Rocket was lurking about.
When we say cult, we mean it: aside from attracting prime ratings on French television since its 2008 debut, Wakfu has an equally rabid fan following worldwide--earlier this year the kickstarter for an English debut surpassed its goal by some 600%, raking in nearly $500,000. The show follows the adventures of Yugo, a boy blessed with Portal-like teleportation powers in a world similar in look and feel to Ragnarok and Maple Story. It debuts on Netflix Sept. 14th, so the question is: to binge watch, or not to binge watch?
