Time Suck Alert: Arrested Development

For those that decide to binge on Arrested Development a little later on Netflix and for those that looking for a great time waster, check out Recurring Developments.

Created by Beutler Ink and Red Edge (and their designers who love watching TV and taking notes), this is a catalog of the inside jokes and running themes on this beloved cult show. But unlike a never-nude at the gym, the good times just keep on coming.

Star Wars Family Tree

…Or as I like to call it “Awkward family reunion”.

This is another great design by artist Joe Stone.  He is also the creative brain grapes behind the Marvel Universe Family Trees.

March Madness – Let the hate begin

Georgetown is my alma mater and I love my Hoyas. March is sacred in this house.

Grantland is launching March Madness in a big way by celebrating those warriors who are hard in the paint…and make us want to throw things.

So in the spirit of that which makes us crazy behold Grantland’s 2013 bracket to crown the most hated college basketball player of the last 30 years:

bracket o’ hate

The voting is well underway on the Grantland facebook page. [And the Duke haters are out in force, because Duke makes the hate soooooo easy.]

Kickstart this: The ACME Corporation

Growing up in NJ our grocery stores were named Acme. I could never reconcile – nor forgive – that it didn’t carry anvils nor cannon balls. Milk and cheese, sure. But why couldn’t I also have boomerangs and land mines. I was thwarted!

That is until now (sorta).

Behold, the poster of all ACME Corporation products, artistically and lovingly compiled by Rob Loukotka of Fringe Focus, after painstakingly watching all 43 Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote cartoons. And you too can own this poster if you support his kickstarter campaign here. But hurry! The campaign ends Dec. 24th, 2012 (a perfect gift for that Looney Tune in your life).

San Diego Comic-Con 2012: All Your Zombie Needs

 It’s that time of year again: Comic-Con.

I am woefully late in my posting so I’m thanking the fine folks at the San Diego City Beat for a great list of all things undeadly awesome at the Con this year.

And The Walking Dead (comic book) turns to #100 this week.

Hyundai is helping to promo….wait. What? For the love of all things undead.

 I admit that the car (the Elantra!) does look kinda cool as well as practical for mowing down zombies (though I still got nothin but love for Bellflower‘s Medusa). HyundaiUndead.com has more pics and a sweepstakes.

Check out this review or just buy the comic and post your own review. Collider has a recap of the Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard panel.

And remember: have fun at the Con!

Happy Birthday Nikola Tesla!

 156 years ago today, Nikola Tesla was born.

For those of you who don’t know (and those that need to be reminded), Tesla was an OB –  Original Badass.*

I typed this on my computer. You are reading this on your computer via the internet. Both things run on electricity. And we have Tesla to thank for its beginning. The modern world would not exists in the form we now know if not for his many accomplishments.

Cannot Wait! The Tick

The Big Blue Defender of Justice is turning 100 (in comic book issues), in Tick #100: The Tick meets Invincible. I remember when he was just knee-high in a straightjacket hanging out in a luny bin.

From Previews:

Celebrate the 100th issue of The Tick with a 48-page full-color blockbuster co-starring Robert Kirkman’s Invincible! In a full-length 24-page epic, Invincible is transported to The Tick’s universe where the two mighty heroes confront the combined threat of the master criminal Chairface Chippendale and a mysterious and menacing new villain who makes even Chairface look like an ordinary umbrella stand! A story so awesome it requires two planets and at least one moon to contain it! Added bonus, “The Story of The Tick,” a 20-page full-color history of The Tick’s illustrious career!

And more from the Geek Out! blog:

“Tick #100″ pairs Invincible with the more naive pair of The Tick and his sidekick Arthur, whose most notable vigilante effort was to keep a supervillain from writing his name on the moon. The Tick and Arthur afford Invincible some levity. Invincible injects a deeper pathos into the world of his hapless insect-hero friends.
