Loot of the Week: Get The Pizza & Porkrinds Ready

Yea that’s the Ninja Turtle Party Van that carries 23 DVD’s of the original show. If you’re not already drooling over this then you have too much pride in what your living room looks like. What guest of yours wouldn’t be impressed and then start a deep conversation about the possibility of April O’Neil shacking up with a Turtle? Okay maybe not that conversation, but something along those lines. This DVD awesome pack comes out in November for only $100. 23 DVD’s for $100? What’s the catch you might ask? Actually nothing, just ninja vanish after buying this and keep laughing to yourself knowing you’d probably pay $200 for it.

The Non Don Cheadle Captain Planet

Fan made Captain Planet trailer? Sure I’ll bite. Hard to swallow without Don Cheadle as Captain Planet, but I guess we can accept this one. Gawd damn tree huggers. Julia Butterfly called, she wants to be relevant again too.

Star Wars Detours…Definitely The Show We Are Looking For

Yea so it’s pretty much a tamer Robot Chicken. Totally fine with that, not everything needs to be shock factor funny. Just feels like a feel good Star Wars parody and let’s hurry this up and air it. I literally know no details about this other than what you’re looking at because I had to post it as soon as friend of the show Marc passed it along. Enjoy.

There’s A Storm Coming Simba

Thanks to the GayFloridaNerd for this tip, this is what I came back to from a wedding I went to and I either found it funny cause it actually is or because I’m so delusional from the weekend still. Anyhoo it made me laugh out loud therefore it granted some web time.

The BDNS At Comic Con

The nerds are uniting again (not just the J Team this time) for Comic Con 2012. We will be in San Diego starting tomorrow through Sunday. Look to our Facebook and Twitter feeds for our all updates and pictures. Someone will be kicked out of something. James and Jon will be in a Q&A. Jeff will upset someone verbally so bad they cry. And I will try the worst pick-up lines ever on any Lara Croft or Poison (as long as she’s not actually a tranny) cosplayer. Make sure to stay in touch with us though and let us know what you want to see or hear first hand about! It’s about to get weird at the con.

Rise Of The Guardians Trailer

I can’t tell a whole from this story other than Santa, Tooth Fairy, The Sandman, Easter Bunny, and Jack Frost are out to save the children of the world from a villain using fear as a weapon. Pretty stoked about this actually and really want the Australian voiced Easter Bunny (assuming that’s Hugh Jackman) to pull a knife on someone. Still confused as to what the Tooth Fairy or Easter Bunny have to offer to beat evil, they might as well invite Jubilee along too. Here’s the synopsis for the rest of your questions. Also any other children’s characters you would have liked to see?

RISE OF THE GUARDIANS is an epic and magical adventure that tells the story of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman, and Jack Frost – legendary characters with previously unknown extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children everywhere.

Diary of a Nerdette: Seriously, Disney?!

It is a well known fact that Disney has gone in the shitter since the 90’s for the most part. Now since they own both Star Wars and Marvel, they’re just pissing me off now. It’s not enough that they turn the Empire into a joke by having them dance around on stage at Disney World. Yes, it’s hilarious but I will never again be intimidated by Boba Fett. Now, they’re making an animated series about the Hulk and Iron Man. A quote by the President of Disney Channel, Gary Marsh:

“Two months ago, we launched Marvel Universe on Disney XD, which became the exclusive home for new Marvel television content. We’ve developed Ultimate Spider-Man. Subsequent to the success of the Avengers movie, we’ve been developing a new Avengers Assemble. We’re talking about a Hulk series and an Iron Man series, too. They’re going to spend $150 million to $200 million to make these [movie] properties and then half of that to market them; I’m sitting here thinking, ‘Thank you, Lord, you’ve made me look good.”

I am speculating that the reaction to Ruffalo and RDJ’s awesomeness together in the film sparked this idea. Yes, I “ship” them as the tumblr community would say. Anyway, I just can’t help but be THAT cynical asshole. They’re trying to ride on the success of the Avengers as long as they can. If it’s good, then fine, but I still think they’re trying too hard to ride on the Avengers coat tails. This smells very George Lucas-y. You will never be as good as the 90′s Disney! Just Stop.
