A lot of people have clamored for Jon Hamm to play the role of Superman. When Snyder took over the reins, Hamm was dismissed as too old, thereby taking him out of the running. Again. Dope comic book artist Phil Noto did us all a solid when he drew our dream casting. Gorgeously.
Oh how the time flies! Look, there it goes again! Lord Linear has jumped into his One-Way Rider and just keeps cruisin’ along, never deviating or allowing for honest reflection! BLAST! If only some time-hoppin’ bandit, a charming rogue with a proclivity for anachronism, could save us! If only…
Welcome, my babies, to the Monday Morning Commute! This is the spot where we share our plans for the week – not the shackles of Work/Eat/Sleep/Repeat, but the open fields of pop culture and entertainment to which we’ll flee. First I’ll let you traverse my caffeine-addled mindscape, and then you hit up the comments and grant me access to those neurons of yours that still fire.
Let’s do this.
Rockin’ / BTBAM – Specular Reflection (Teaser)
I often get into a debate about what I give a fuck about and what I’ll post about. Generally I ignore shit I don’t give a fuck about, but sometimes there’s a subsection of something I give a fuck about that I actually don’t give a fuck about.
Translation: I’m riding the new Spider-Man’s jock, but I don’t give a fuck about retarded set photos taken while they’re not shooting. But for continuity’s sake, I’ll post them anyways.
Hit the jump for the junk.
Marvel’s dropped some character posters for the upcoming X-Men: First Class. The posters are of Xavier and Magneto, and they follow the “Before he was a crippled bald dude, he was…” motif. Which, I must add, I’m totally digging. I didn’t realize that there would be such an emphasis on the friendship and ideological rift that erupts out of it between these two chaps. Good calls! It seems that often they’re left behind in lieu of giving greater focus to a hairy dude with blue fur dropping one-liners and optic blasts.
Which I’m cool with, but this is even cooler.
Hit the jump for the posters.
The Space Shuttle Discovery took its final journey off of this this giant blue-skinned rock on Thursday. All us dorks peeped the launch in a variety of manners, but I sure hadn’t seen it like this. NeilMonday on YouTube was in an airplane when he caught the beauty in motion. It’s a different perspective than I’m used to catching these launches at, and I’ll be goddamned it isn’t gorgeous.
Look at that scrapheap of ingenuity that us humans cobbled together. Sometimes we’re capable of some pretty impressive shit.
Hit the jump for the video.
Hold the fuck on! There’s going to be another Grand Theft Auto? Why, I figured after the four games, the side-games, the episodic releases, and the portable titles or whatever, the series would have been wrapped up in a neat bow. Now you’re telling me that an obvious cash cow is going to get another installment? This, this startles me. So much for artistic integrity. What sort of proof are we looking at?
How about a bunch of domain registrations that are slathered in Rockstar’s typical satirical bite.
Behind the stars that form the Pisces constellation, there’s some flamboyant galaxies. When you’re in (relatively, but of course everything is relative) close proximity to a total famous constellation, you’re going to have to do things to stand out. Right? Right!
The Sun’s fucking cranky these days. We’re in an increased period of solar activity, and one benefit for geeks like me is that it’s giving us a plethora of sun ejaculation flicks to enjoy. I mean, I like ejaculation videos as-is, but now we’re taking them onto a scale the size of the solar system? I vote yes.
The latest solar flare to rock our socks off occurred on February 24.
