I’m extremely sad that Logan will be the last time that Hugh Jackman plays Wolverine. He’s one of those perfectly cast characters, and someone that you will really have a hard time finding a replacement for. The X-Men have always been my favorite comic book movie series. Honestly, I was never a comic book fan, but that movies, those I love. What makes The X-Men franchise so good in my opinion is the consistency. The same actors have reprised their roles over 17 years. You don’t see that often. Not to mention, the actors they got to play the roles are pretty close to perfect.
Anyway, I like the above marketing play that they put together. It’s very modern. Plus, The Hydraulic Press Channel is fun.
This is an interesting update to the classic video The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny. However, it’s filled with recent additions to the super-hero landscape. Sure there are some classics: The T-800, Indy, Luke, but all newer takes on the famous heroes/villains of modern times. Plus, there’s no catchy music playing in the background. Maybe that’s what I miss the most. Anyway, watch the above, it’ll keep you enjoyed for 8 minutes, then watch the original after the break:
Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is one of those castings that just fit perfectly. His portrayal of the character, his enjoyment of it is something rare in the movie business. That makes the above trailer all the more sad as it’s his final time playing the pivotal mutant. The movie, named simply Logan is set in the future, and he is growing old. There’s a clone of him too apparently. I don’t know. I’ve never read the comics, and I’m trying to distance myself following movies too closely before release, it ruins all the suspense.
Jackman’s shoes will be next to impossible to fill, if Fox is smart, they will allow a dozen or so years before they bring back that character into the main stream films. Unfortunately, for casual fans, Wolverine is the face of X-Men, so that seems unlikely.
This is a great comic that goes over the unfortunate importances people place on things that don’t matter on cameras, or tech in general. Left Handed Toons in general is one of the more enjoyable web-comics I read. I actually do read it, as opposed to blindly subscribing to it and checking once a week.
Honestly, it’s the “finest American Wi-Fi” line that got me. Gold.
BECausE I sAiD so!!
This comic is interesting. At first it looks like it’s going to be Nazi Propaganda. But as it gets going, it’s really Christian Propaganda. Personally, I think it falls into the category of American Propaganda. But that’s just me, a red-blooded American. An interesting thing about this is that it’s based on the real life story of Maria Anne Hirschmann. I don’t know how true to life it is, but it’s probably somewhat.
I don’t often post about the webcomics I follow, mostly it’s because I follow so few of them, or, the better ones have disappeared over the years. Well, theWAREHOUSE, is one of the better ones I’ve followed for years, and it’s still around. It doesn’t have long, over-arching story lines like some comics, but it does have recurring characters, my favorite being Charles the Raver.
It’s really one of my favorite comics, it’s one of the only comics that I will totally read, as opposed to look at the title, and see if it’s worth my time. You should read it, it’s good, trust me. And while you’re at it, why not enter the contest he’s having for the 1,000 comic. Free, super easy to enter, and there’s 2, (two) prizes, a free t-shirt.
All you have to do is tweet #WRHScomic, or do the same but on Facebook (however that handles #). Looking at the current entries on twitter, there aren’t too many, so this could be your chance to score a nice free t-shirt. Or not, I don’t care. I do think you should support this artist though, because his stuff is good.
This will end up being the last Stumble post of the year. I used to have one a month, but sadly, Stumbleupon isn’t what it used to be, and isn’t something that I stay up all night doing anymore. Many of these pictures come from Imgur, and Reddit now, but I still mix in some stumbles, because it’s still a great way to kill time.
So let’s get down to it, here are you guys ready for another dose of stumbles?
Today marks the 14 year anniversary of what I consider the greatest meme of all time. That’s right, I’m talking about All Your Base are Belong to Us.
While it’s impossible to say for sure when the video was made, Know Your Meme has a pretty decent timeline, and that’s what I’m going by. Recent history has forgotten the greatest of memes, but over the years, people have given it it’s rightful place in the world. It’s amazing to think how the world has changed since then. And to think what is considered a “viral” video, or meme now adays.
With the uptake of reddit, whole new memes are created and killed in a single day. Gone are the days when memes would fester and take time to grow correctly. ICanHazCheezburger really was one of the downfalls of the internet meme. It used to be that photos had to be found, culled, and then turned into the hilarious photo macros that we know and love. Now, anyone with a smart phone can take a picture, apply their own text, and make a meme.
The same thing went with Demotivational Posters. They use to be amazing. Now, not so much. I never was one for the Courage Wolf, Insanity Wolf, Philosoraptor, or any of those other macros. But those too have been made easier to make, and so less impactful, which is sad.
So take some time today to remember the meme that’s the king of all memes. Because after all, you have no chance to survive, make your time…
