OF COURSE, WWE Legend Mick Foley Fought The Walking Dead’s Negan At A Comic Con Last Weekend…

Let’s get the main story out-of-the-way first. Okay; this past weekend at Paradise City Comic Con (in Miami, FL),  WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley saved two people cosplaying as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters Casey Jones and April O’Neil from being attacked by someone cosplaying as The Walking Dead‘s Negan by performing his Mandible Claw submission hold on him during a cosplay wrestling event. Let that sink in for a bit, and I’ll be back with you after the break. Continue reading OF COURSE, WWE Legend Mick Foley Fought The Walking Dead’s Negan At A Comic Con Last Weekend…

NBC is, AGAIN, Trying to Adapt UK Tech Support Sitcom ‘The IT Crowd’…

I suppose that the old adage is true: If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again; some things, however, should just be left alone as God’s way of saying “this is not to be.” For the — say it with me now — THIRD TIME, NBC will be adapting the hit UK Channel 4 show, The IT Crowd. If you think this sounds familiar, it’s because in 2007 NBC (after their success with another BBC hit, The Office) made a pilot staring Joel McHale, Richard Ayoade (from the original show) and Jessica St. Clair, and tried again in 2014 (which went nowhere). I suppose this also proves that even adapting one project into a new project can involve some “turning it off and on again;” Lord knows how many IT tickets I’ve personally encountered when THAT was the solution… Continue reading NBC is, AGAIN, Trying to Adapt UK Tech Support Sitcom ‘The IT Crowd’…

The Predator is coming to “Ghost Recon: Wildlands.” Yes, You Read That Correct…

…and yes, he’s one, UGLY, motherf***er!

Now that I have that quote out of the way, starting TODAY (December 14th) and running through the beginning of January, the Predator, Hollywood’s most-popular alien hunter from John McTiernan’s 1987 sci-fi film (ya’ know, Predator), will be part of a special FREE downloadable content challenge in Ghost Recon: Wildlands where players — either alone or as a groups of up to four — have to fight to survive the hunter’s aggressive onslaught in order to take him down. Should you and/or your team defeat the Predator, you’ll receive his iconic mask (dreadlocks included) and corresponding heat vision. SCORE!

Ladies & Gentlemen, the First “Avengers: Infinity War” Trailer Is Here!

Four months ago at the D23 Expo and San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel showed fans — for the first time — some footage from the highly anticipated ‘Avengers’ film. However, back then the footage was not released online, which drove people nuts (myself included), but now, we have the first official trailer.

Yup, This Sign BELONGS on the ‘Crappy Design’ Subreddit…

Maybe a BIGGER sign to include the ENTIRE SCHOOL NAME (including the words “Elementary School” or “Academy”) would help…

After 20 Years of Service, CompuServe Forums set to Close…

Raise your hands if you remember CompuServe, either by name recognition, being a prior user of thier online services (I recall using them, AOL and Prodigy), or the forums. Incoming history lesson: CompuServe lauched its online services in the early 1980s, becoming the first major commercial online service provider in the United States and one of the true old-guard entities of the early days of the internet. Nowadays, especially in the last decade, that same collective of companies — howdy AOL and Yahoo — have been trimming down services once heavily promoted (don’t forget to pour some out for AOL Instant Messenger). In the case of CompuServe’s discussion boards and forums, that service will fade into the ether by December 15th. Continue reading After 20 Years of Service, CompuServe Forums set to Close…

Sonic Fan (and sometimes Director) John Carpenter on His Love for the Game Series

John Carpenter has directed and/or produced some of my favorite films (from Halloween, The Thing, Escape from New York, The Fog, They Live, Big Trouble in Little China, to name a few), and I put him on my list of my favorite filmmakers of all time. The only thing that could make me idolize this man and his work more was if he were a fan of my favorite video game series…oh…huh…hold on…JOHN CARPENTER IS A SONIC THE HEDGEHOG FAN!?!?!?! ***jumping up-and-down, squealing*** Whew, ok, so, after telling The Guardian last month about how deep he was into Destiny 2, saying “I’ve dedicated my life to learning how to play it. At my age (69 years old) why not? It keeps me out of trouble.” Recently in FACT, he discusses his long-time love for SEGA’s blue-and-spiked-haired dude with an attitude.
