Vintage Monsters #1 Uber Sweet!

Wow! What a cool magazine! This a German and English fanzine! Love the Planet of vampires cover, dont you?

Famous Monsters of Filmland unused cover for issue #231

Looks great! It had Forry Ackermans approval aswell but that butt munch Ray Ferry for some mysterious reason didn't use it. So long delayed here it is for your enjoyment.

Hot Wheels Ghostbusters Ecto-1!

How in the blue hell this slipped past me is incredible! This is even cooler than the 1966 tv Batmobile they did! Best of all it can be had pretty cheap on ebay. Before this my fave die cast Ecto-1 was the old 80's Fugi Film premium, that one will set you back a few bucks if you can find one! Don't get me wrong the Jonnylighting Ecto-1's were cool, but this is just crazygroovycool! Just for the record Fuji Film did another cool premium a few years back, a Batman action figure sans all the goofy colors and implausible accessories.  It's understandable if you missed out on the Fuji Film goodies as most people just don't think cool gimmies when you think of Fuji Film.

No fooling, a Star Wars sitcom is on its way?????????

I have been trying to wrap my head around this for days and days, why George, why?  apparently the stars wars universe is so rich that comedic seinfeldish events take place in the daily lives of the characters. Is there really a darkside Numan or a jedi Krammer out there in a universe long ago and far away?

Think and Grin.

Killer Kaiju Monsters! Strange Beasts of Japanese Film a cool new book coming 6/01/2010

This is great it features a boat load of kaiju and the heroes that stood against them! It has sections covering there strengths,weaknesses,biology,special powers and abilities,ect... It's not often a book like this is produced for America so I suggest snagging a copy as soon as you can! It's hard cover and has a retail of $27.00, not bad. Published by harpercollins. From what I've seen of it it beats August Raygan's books and thats no small feat! The author is one Mr. Ivan Vartanian.

Apples IPAD is total crap!

I had the chance to monkey around with one of these and well lets just say it's a over hyped useless piece-o-crap! Why you say? Well it doesn't have any usb ports, so no hooking up digital cameras,printers ect.(in fact scratch printing all together, so much for the class room applications.),doesn't support flash so no luck seeing a huge amount of video on line, no way to load software except through apples store online at a stupidly high price, the keyboard as it is doesn't work very well and it's $499.00! Thats alot of dough for a semi useable device don't you think? Sure opening sales will be big, but after people see it for the crap that it is many will be returned and sales will drop dramatically.

If Steve Jobs had put some more effort into this gizmo's developement he just may have had a winner on his hands, but all he produced was a big IPhone that doesn't make calls. Whoopee fragging do!

The complete cover for Famous Monsters of Filmland #251 and peak at the incentive cover for #251

Looks pretty good so far, not wild about IDW publishing it though, there a small time indie comic publisher and really don't have any magazine experience.

The New Freddy Krueger from the remake.

I can't say I have high hopes for this flick. Platnium Dunes (yes I misspelled the studios name on purpose,there utter crap.)doesn't have a very good track record on the remake front. The look of our fave dream demon in this unneeded redux is just plain goofy looking! Jackie was okay in watchment but that doesn't mean his a great character actor!

A solid 10 on the yuck meter, Nestle's Soy Sauce Kit Kat!

I'm all for inovation and keeping a product fresh and relevent but this time Nestle has gone to far! Ungawa this was nasty! For years I've seen a tried all manner of Japanese Kit Kats and other snacks. Some where quite good, Pocky for example. Some are great; HI-CHEWS ROCK! Then there are abominations of culinary sadism like the Soy Sauce Kit Kat from Nestle Japan! Somethings that are fine on there own should not be combined! Would you eat a peanut butter and relish sandwich?

Pics of Yogi Bear and Boo-Boo from the upcoming live action movie!

Personally I think they look pretty good and faithful to the original cartoons, dont you?

Happy Pagan New Year! aka April Fools Day!

April first was and is the begining of the new year for pagans. The Church referred to them as April Fools.
