Do you guys know who I am? Do you know my passions? My hobbies? My favorite colors? My favorite foods? THEY’RE ALL IN THIS VIDEO!!J**%&%*
The best band everrrR Anamanaguchi has a new single called “Meow,” and the music video is the tits. It’s basically my life story, from conception to now-hood. There’s neon and pizza and arcades. Go watch it above this boring text. zzzzz
Halloween is by far my favorite holiday. The goblins. The ghouls. The Tootsie Rolls. The opportunity to dress in cosplay. It’s incredibly fun.
My favorite costume, as an adult at least, is this Link outfit you see above. It’s fairly simple compared to some of the more detailed Zelda-inspired costumes I’ve seen. The tunic is just green fabric sewn together with a small slit near the collar-bone. The hat is the same fabric, stuffed with a small amount of tissue paper so it would keep its body while remaining flexible.
The more detailed aspects were the shield, bow and arrows, boomerang, and sword. Again opting out of spending a fortune on detailed weaponry, I simply cut and painted foam core. It was definitely the cheapest option, though they’re all a little rough around the edges. Here’s a picture of my interpretation of Link’s array of weaponry below.
This fall, two of San Dimas’s brightest minds are making their most triumphant arrival into high definition. Bill S. Preston Esquire and Ted Theodore Logan are bringing their first motion picture, the cult classic Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, to Blu-ray on November 13.
No word on their second adventure, Bogus Journey getting the Blu-ray treatment, but this is a good start.
Amazon already has the boxart up, and I’m overall very impressed — aside from George Carlin’s creepy floating head. What do you guys think?
Since they acquired the brand years ago, Nickelodeon has been hard at work, gearing up to relaunch the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise with an all-new CG cartoon set to launch this September. While we have a few more weeks to wait until the show’s official premiere, Playmates Toys Inc. just released the first round of figurines to coincide with the franchise reboot.
Available now, these new turtle toys include the basic action figure set, larger figurines with built-in sound effects, plus a selection of vehicles to accommodate the new figurines. There’s also a new line of weapon and bandanna bundles for those interested in turtle-based larping.
I picked up the new basic Michelangelo figurine, as well as the new Kraang figurine — yes, the spelling was changed. Not only am I obsessed with the reimagined look of the turtles (and company), these figurines feature an incredible amount of detailing and mobility. They’re flexible, pose-able, and come packed with additional weapons. The basic figurines, coming in at less than 5″ tall, are around $9 each, while the larger sound-effects based figures are around $13.
After a summer of superheroes, I am more than ready for a fall filled with Bond. James Bond. For I am a 007 fanatic beyond words. I love the characters, the action, the suspense, and the score all the same.
After production delays galore, Bond’s latest resurrection dubbed Skyfall will finally release in just a couple months. From what I can tell, this will be another exciting entry in the franchise. Fancy gadgets, like a finger-print detecting gun? Check. A creepy foreign foe with a bad dye-job? Check. Dame Judi Dench being her usual badass self? Check.
Anyone else excited for this fall’s new Bond? Sound off below. And check out the new international trailer above.
Over two years ago, I, Jason Leavey — started DaftBit.com, a blog dedicated to all things gaming, gadgets, and geekery. I had the same ambitious goals as every other tech-obsessed lost soul floating through their mid-twenties; aspirations of revolutionizing the Internet and online journalism by inventing a wheel that was invented years prior. I wanted to develop an immensely popular site which would provide a constant flow of news about the biggest stories and features relating to geek culture, whether that be software reviews, announcements of new technology products, or geekery in the form of the latest Zelda-inspired Etsy creation. In some ways, I succeeded.
This fall, the classic film E.T. is finally getting a well-deserved Blu-ray release. If you’re looking to splurge on something a little more special, Amazon has you covered. They’re offering a limited edition set that comes with a replica spaceship model — with real movie sound effects. The set will set you back $140.
Above is the trailer for the limited edition spaceship. For more information about the features set to arrive on the Blu-ray, aside from that sexy high-resolution version of the film’s theatrical release, click the link below.
Those with an affinity for anthropomorphic turtles will be excited to see this new trailer from Nickelodeon’s upcoming Ninja Turtles reboot cartoon. The much-anticipated long-in-development GC series will kick off this fall. I personally love the new look of this turtles, and can’t wait to see them kick some major shell.
Check out the debut trailer above.
