    First Image of, THOR!!! 

    I’ll make this one kind of quick because i’m so excited to share this with people.  Yup, I just had a total nerd-gasm. Thor has been filming for months now and shockingly, no leaks have popped up on movie news sites. Thanks to superherohype.com and yahoo! movies, we can finally see (a little bit) what Thor will look like. It’s only a tease but wow. So far it looks faithful to the comic. ENJOY! If you have problems with the image then here’s a link to the superherohype post, http://www.superherohype.com/news/thornews.php?id=9345

    first look: Thor

    Wear some Art on Your Chest With Threadless. 

    Are you looking for a place to find t-shirt art of zombies, old school super heroes, psychedelic designs that could be dangerous if mixed with weed, and other things that make no sense but look awesome on a t-shirt? Well then you need to head down to Threadless.com.

    I use to love Ed Hardy shirts and Affliction shirts…before they were kidnapped and abused by your local douche bag fist pumping club heads that you may catch on the Jersey Shore. That’s why I love Threadless.com This isn’t just a trendy design. These are t-shirts designed for the people, by the people and Threadless only produces the most eye-popping visual designs that you can slap on someones chest. I have purchased a bunch of tees from Threadless and I’m very happy with how they fit and what they look like. Not to mention, I get stopped constantly (not because I’m dead sexy) on the street because people love the shirts.

    Threadless.com is also a website where t-shirt enthusiasts and artist can design and purchase shirts that they design. But it’s not as easy as it sounds. This isn’t an ordinary design and buy website like cafepress. Once you create a profile and submit one of your designs that meet the criteria, It then get’s accepted by Threadless as a potential design and is voted on by your Threadless pears for a seven-day process. Your peers can also leave you comments. I found that this is a very supportive community as well. If you’re not sure if your design is ready to submit, you can always submit it to the critique section where the comments are always helpful. Now the icing on the cake. If your shirt does get accepted for print, you’ll get $2,000 in cash, $500 Threadless Gift Certificate (can be redeemed for $200 cash), $500 in cash each time your design is reprinted, up to $22,500 more if you win a “Bestee” in the Threadless awards, and last is an Alumni Club membership that includes a Medal of Honor and other stuff. Over all I think this is a really cool way for creative artist to potentially make some money in this tough time.  Threadless also has stores in Chicago. Go get some!

    Steve Rogers Reborn? 

    It’s hump day! For all of us nerds out there, we know Wednesdays as New Comic Book Day!! As I entered my local comic shop in Smith Towns called, Fourth World Comics, I picked up the latest Marvel Previews magazine. The first thing I saw when I opened the cover page was an advertisement for a new book called, (spoiler) Steve Rogers: Super Soldier!!  After giving up the mantle of Captain America to his former side-kick, Bucky Barns, many comic book fans have wondered what the fate of Cap Version 1.0 would be. I can now tell you that this art work is visual proof that Steve Rogers is back in a major way. The Book will probably ship some time this summer but I’m excited to buy it because it’s in good hands. The book will be written by comic book heavy hitter, Ed Brubaker. For those who live under a rock,  Ed Brubaker  was responsible for the death and resurrection of Captain America. He is also the man who gave Bucky Barns( a.k.a, The Winter Soldier a.k.a. The New Captain America) a main event spot amongst the other top super heroes.  The art is done by Dale Eaglesham. He has recently done some amazing art work for the Fantastic Four.

    Over all, I’m really excited about this book and to see what the future holds for this new incarnation of Steve Rogers. What other books will we see him in? Could he be leading an entirely new team of Avengers? (wink, wink) We’ll find out soon.

      yeah should be an interesting read! I look forward to it. Although, there’s only one cap for me: Steve Rogers. Bucky’s kinda lame, just my thoughts, thanks for the update.

        I totally get what you’re saying. I liked Bucky better as The Winter Soldier.

    3D or not 3D? That is the question. 

    So I recently went to the movies to see Clash of the Titans. I was very on the fence about seeing it in 3D. I know that the movie was shot without the intent to release it in 3D but in the end I guess the studio said, Hey! all the cool kids are doing it! So they went ahead and converted to 3D format. Knowing that I wasn’t going to see anything eye-popping in three dimensional format. I STILL went with the 3D. I can honestly say, I wish I just would have seen it in standard format. Don’t get me wrong! Clash of the Titans was a great popcorn movie. I enjoyed it just as much as the original oh and SPOILER…(the owl makes a cameo) but there was nothing that the 3D did that caught my attention like Avatar did. To me, it was a quick way to get more money out of people by making the 3D version because ticket prices for these movies or more $ than a standard screening. My spidey sense was tingling about this but they got me; hook like and sinker.

    This popular trend has officially divided my feelings on what I think of 3D movies. On one hand, you have so many movies slated to come out in 3D that may be big budget popcorn movies but they really don’t concentrate on bringing that visual flair that 3D is supposed to bring the viewer. People need to be more aware of that because then it’s just the film industry ripping off the consumer. Unless you enjoy that kind of thing! If you actually paid to see Final Destination in 3D then you probably think I’m crazy.

    On the other hand you have these visually stimulating movies being shot in IMAX 3D that are bringing film making to another level. Movies like Avatar and Iron Man 2 are concentrating on bringing the viewer into an immersive experience.

    I’ve learned the hard way. I will never have another Clash of the Titans experience again. I’m writing this because I hope more people become aware of this. That being said, let’s have fun with 3D! Lets push the limits in what it can do. If more people keep making My Bloody Valentine 3D..it’s just going to become a cheap parlor trick that will end-up as a bad joke on a VH1 special when they talk about our decade.

    Andrew Lincoln Starring in Walking Dead 

    AMC has officially announced that it has signed Andrew Lincoln for the lead role as officer Rick Grimes in the network’s adaptation of the wildly popular comic book series, The Walking Dead. This announcement comes shortly after the news that actor, Jon Bernthal will play the role Shane; who is Rick’s best friend and former partner on the police force. The story follows a group of survivors as they try to live life after a zombie invasion has decimated everything and everyone.                          I for one can’t wait to see how this show turns out. I am I huge fan of the series and I hope it remains faithful to the books. I know that the series has been given the greenlight for six episodes. Robert Kirkman (author of The Walking Dead) writes this series with more of a heart filled human nature approach. This is not your run of the mill splatter house graphic novel. This is a story of emotion. You truly watch the characters go through so much change and you become attached to Rick Grimes along the way. I think the casting is great. Andrew Lincoln looks as if he can play the part well. Let’s just hope this doesn’t take a wrong turn down zombie franchise hell and go all cheesy House of The Dead on us. AMC has a good opportunity to make something great and bring drama to horror.

    Attack of the Hurds 

       Hey  there! I spend most of my time working in NYC and I�¦¥uro;��¢ve performed most of my shows in NYC. It has occurred to me that at some point in pop culture it became cool to be a nerd. I have no problem with that because as hard as it may be to believe. I myself am a HUGE nerd. I’m a comic book reading, wrestling watching, Ghost Hunters loven, writing and drawings HUUUGE NERD. In resent times, there has been some kind of hybrid created in the city life. The new “fad” is to be a “HERD” (yup…I�¦¥uro;��¢m trade marking that word) this transformer like hybrid is NOT so cool. It comes in the form of a nerd look with some hippie flare. So break out your nerd glasses, some flip flops, and all of the organic clothing you could gather and walk your little ass over to a coffee shop (Not Starbuck you idiot! That’s waaay to commercial for Herds)If you would like to spot a HERD, don’t bother looking in best buy or virgin records, your best bet is a no name music store with shelves hanging by a thread. Now, I say these things with great caution because I don’t want to be misunderstood. I RESPECT the artsy crowd that works hard to have a reason to be able to sport the ol HURD look. You were raised with free spirit parents and now you�¦¥uro;��¢re enjoying a new job at a graphic design company or you just got into college…I GET IT!! But don’t have a sudden epiphany that this style looks awesome and you need to go get you some organic clothing while driving your SUV and tossing your empty supersized cup from Burger King out the window. A city that breeds originality needs to keep that intact. Don’t just fallow the masses. I think I’m going to go make a hamburger meat outfit and go jogging in Central Park…See ya later.

    Keep it funny-Stilly

    ipad cometh 

    After three months of  media hype, the iPad is finally here….yay? Before I start ranting, I must let everyone know that I don’t have an iPad and I haven’t used one. That being said, I know how to read and I know what the iPad can do.

    Three months ago, everyone was so excited to learn what this new secret product was going to be from Apple. When the iPad was finally revealed, i was all excited…for about 5 seconds. It’s was the same feeling I get when I’m watching a NY Ranger game and Marian Gaborik has the puck on a straight away and totally misses the net. Not to mention that the name sounds like something my wife would use once a month. I  thought the idea was amazing; but then Steve Jobs started talking and it became very apparent that this was nothing more than a glorified iPhone. I’ll put it to you like this, Do you remember back in the day when (after the success of batman returns) Batman forever was announced and everyone was all excited? but Then we found out that Val Kilmer was replacing Michael Keaton in a stylized Batman suit with nipples and the crapfest of Batman Forever was born. That’s how I feel about the iPad!

    If you’re getting this product for the Apps, great! That seems to be one of the main uses. But don’t try to use your iPhone Apps. Upscaling iPhone Apps causes them to look clunky and pixellated. At the moment their’s not many iPad Apps out there that are exciting. If you’re getting this product for its e-reader capabilities, well then you must not know that you can find cheaper e-reader like The Nook or The Kindle. Do you like playing flash games and are some of your favorite websites in flash?! Well then you can’t view them on the iPad. This product is very limited in its web browsing by not using flash and that makes me want to punch the iPad in the face.

    Over all, I give Apple points for revolutionizing something. The iPad IS selling but it’s not selling out just yet. We know Mac enthusiasts are going to scream over this product. Judging by the way Apple does things, in 3 or 4 years time, iPad will have so many new features and capabilities that it just may make me eat my words but for now, it’s the iPhone on steroids.
