If you ever admired the Bruce Lee-like dexterity Major Kusanagi used to twist limbs, smash face and break bones in Ghost in the Shell these new shoes might put you that much closer to the action. You’ll probably have to learn kung fu or jeet-kun -whatever, all that stuff, but now you might be .001% closer to at least running like her.
Thanks to Reebok and these new Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex shoes, you’re one step closer. That’s right, GHOST IN THE SHELL HAS ITS OWN SHOE! Continue reading “‘Ghost in the Shell’ Shoes: The Next Best Thing to Being Major Kusanagi” »
How bad are things when a movie starring a world renowned action film star can’t get off the ground? Maybe a better question is: how far down the action movie ladder has Vin Diesel fallen when his new sequel to Pitch Black can’t catch a break?
But despite getting off the ground earlier this year, the follow up to 2004′s The Chronicles of Riddick suffered some major setbacks when the cast and crew found themselves locked out of shooting quarters.
Great that things are back on track, but such development problems are usually the sign of worse things to come. In celebration of Diesel’s difficulties, here’s a quick look back at some of The 5 Biggest Sci-Fi Bombs of All Time. Continue reading “The Top 5 Most Epic Sci-Fi Movie Bombs…Of All-Time?” »
Redditor and art teacher cheeseboyhalpert (we’re assuming that’s not what his students call him) has posted quite an incredible hand drawn portrait of Steve Jobs. The portrait was done using only descriptive words, a technique Halpert plans on teaching his students and also explains in detail in the description below.
As for the portrait, he apologizes that his handwriting became sloppy throughout the process, but promises the entire thing is made up of only handwritten words. The words used include: Steve Jobs, Business, Visionary, Success, CEO, Apple, Macintosh, iPhone, iPad, Pixar, iPod, Multimedia, California, Innovation, Marketing, iTunes, Network, SteveJobsFinger, and SteveJobsRing Continue reading “Incredible Steve Jobs Portrait Created Using Hand Drawn Words” »
UK-based Captive Media might have just launched the world’s first urine-controlled video game with their custom urinal-integrated consoles now installed in the Exhibit Bar in Balham, South London.
The games are far from your average console experience, but according to Metro the bar owner has experienced a 47 percent increase in beer sales, while Captive Media hopes to cash in on targeted ads. Continue reading “‘Clever Dick’ and other Urine-controlled video games launch in UK” »
The 18 year-old high school student from Kansas made a casual field trip to listen to her Governor, Sam Brownback, give a speech — and she wasn’t too fond of what he had to say:
“Just made mean comments at gov brownback and told him he sucked, in person #heblowsalot.”
Does anyone else remember seeing the Ranma 1/2 manga in comic book stores as a wee lad/lass? It began its run in the mid-80s and soon developed a huge cult following that loved it for its giant pandas and transvestites that changed sexes when it rained (one of the first manga comics to feature at least one transvestite as a main character.)
And yet several years after maintaining a Continue reading “Legendary Anime ‘Ranma 1/2′ Gets Live-Action Television Special” »
Little Vector’s parents loved the Portal games so much, they decided to design every foot of his bedroom after Valve’s best-selling sci-fi game. That means Portal plush power balls, Portal panels, a (somewhat comfortable-looking) cot, and a familiar friend watching from a wall and to make sure little Vec does his homework.
Even the kid’s toilet has an Aperture insignia on it. It’s not really known for certain that the kid loves Portal as much as his parents do; between the serial killer-like scribblings on the wall and a hand-crafted (and pretty convincing) GladOs always watching you, does anyone get vague vibes of Big Brother watching you Continue reading “Parents Give Their Son a Portal-Themed Bedroom” »
The National Debt has been the focus of a number of political debates over the past year, but one man is taking matters into his own hands. He’s not a politician, he’s not an aspiring public speaker or a man with a new book out with his face on the cover, he’s an everyday American…and he might be our only hope to getting the United States debt problem back on track.
Atanacio Garcia is a retired postal worker from San Antonio, who has pledged to donate $50 a month from his pension, in addition to whatever he makes during his rounds collecting recyclables in his neighborhood, to helping the US National Debt. Continue reading “84 Year Old Retired Postal Worker Donates Pension to US Debt” »
But the Mayans were never privy to “Black Friday”, a more modern symbol that man-kind is expediting the disaster process. We don’t need the tedium of Cosmology to predict the world might be coming to a close, these videos below put any asteroid, disease, famine, or alien life form to shame.
For those of you who may have been busy on more important matters, like sleeping, and missed out on Black Friday, here are some of the biggest fails which encompass why Continue reading “The 5 Worst Black Friday Fails (Ever)?” »
Let’s face it…the holidays can suck. In addition to the relatives you often don’t know and have to pretend you do, in addition to the Black Friday mobs, there’s the looming, omnipresent shadow of crappy holiday music (as if crappy radio tunes weren’t enough).
But here are 5 bands we can be thankful for after the Perry Como/classical music has been turned off and the in-laws have crowded into their rental cars/minivans and driven far, far away. Grab a leftover bottle of wine, sit back and enjoy. Continue reading “5 Nerdy (and Overlooked) Bands We’re Thankful For This Thanksgiving” »
No doubt part of the promotional campaign to make sure Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol owns the box office next month, Tom Cruise and Paramount have teamed up with Facebook to make all 3 Mission Impossible movies available for rent through their page.
Along with the movies, Paramount will also offer a game, brilliantly titled “Mission Impossible: The Game” on the site. The first 200 people to play the game and find the hidden Easter Egg inside will receive a free rental for the movies. Continue reading “Paramount Pictures’ Facebook Plan: Mission Impossible?” »
With Bethesda’s enormous and much anticipated success of Skyrim, shipping 7 million copies as of last week, it was only inevitable that the internet would spend its spare time (not playing the game) developing memes inspired by Dovahkiin and company.
Some of them technically aren’t memes, but do a fantastic job of taking an intelligent and funny spin on the game, nevertheless. We’ve scoured digg, reddit, Todd Roy’s personal computer, and anywhere else where productivity generally goes to die and included them in the gallery below, comprising our Favorite Skyrim Memes and photos on the net.

Rampage is the very simple, very sweet story of three lovable gigantic monsters who make it their mission to destroy buildings, munch on humans, and wreak as much havoc as possible. In no uncertain terms, this means we might finally have one video game property that really can’t miss as a live-action movie…
THR reports New Line Cinema has put into development an adaptation of the classic 1980s video game featuring apes and monsters destroying cities.
With that being said, it’ll be interesting to see how the movie industry will try to find a way to f*ck this one up, but maybe they can give it to Ridley Scott or someone now that he’s not doing the Battleship film. Continue reading “80s Classic Video Game ‘Rampage’ to Get Its Own Movie” »
We already knew it was coming, but now officially know that we’ll get a chance to play it come Spring 2012. While like the iOS version that dropped this week it won’t be as far along as the PC version, first impressions seem to be pretty positive…
Most notably the Xbox version won’t have any of the features included in the 1.8 Adventure update of the PC game. Another noticeable change is a new interface to replace the drag and drop crafting table and accommodate the Xbox controller. IGN, who has already got their hands on a demo of the game at Minecon, explains:
“players use a really simple interface to quickly make exactly what they need Continue reading “Deadmau5 Beheads a Minecraft Chicken at After Party, Offer First Glimpse at Game” »
For his directorial debut, longtime actor/producer Vincent D’Onofiro has evidently decided to make his first project a slasher musical. Before you protest, I have four words for you: Happiness of the Katakuris. If you’ve seen that one, you know that morbid-yet-happy affairs have the possibility to be awesome and magical.
Judging by the trailer, Don’t Go Into the Woods tells a relatively straightforward story: Crummy indie rock band ventures off into the woods to record their album in a all-natural setting like a good bunch of indie hippies. All this despite the big-ass sign which reads “Don’t Go in The Woods.”
Shock, one by one, they are picked off by what looks like a disgruntled Vegas magician, all in bloody, grotesque, and campy ways Continue reading ““Don’t Go in The Woods” Trailer Releases, Does Vincent D’Onofrio Hate Indie Music?” »
Sure, Black Widow’s a huge star now — and after appearing in Iron Man 2 and The Avengers, Scarlett Johannson has made it more than abundantly clear that she’s capable of filling those glorious black tights — but screenwriter David Hayter (the man behind such epic superhero fare as X2: X-Men United and Watchmen) recently revealed the lengths he went to to get a Black Widow movie off the ground years ago.
“Unfortunately, as I was coming up on the final draft, a number of female vigilante movies came out. We had ‘Tomb Raider’ and ‘Kill Bill,’ which Continue reading “‘Watchmen’ Writer David Hayter Gets Pissed Over Black Widow Movie (You Would Too)” »

I had some great birthdays growing up, but this one is something straight out of a Twilight Zone episode. I dunno if it’s the freakish midget-like costumes, the fact that they sing “Happy Birthday” in a kind of creepy falsetto, or the hip hop/subwoofer turned to 11 that the 8 year-old kids don’t quite know how to react to.
‘Why is Venom wearing a hoodie?’ is just one of several questions that might come to mind. It’s something equally horrific and fun, and chock full of enough ideas for you parents to traumatize your kids for the majority of their formative years.
