Chewie And Han

You may have noticed im a bit of a fan of Calvin & Hobbes and that i am also a Star Wars fan.(if you read this blog at all... you might noticed these things)

So imagine my delight at discovering THIS tshirt:

Its a pity Bill Watterson didn't make Calvin & Hobbes merchandise, but its rather nice to see fanboys have taken an initiative and made their own.

TShirt available from redbubble

The ULTIMATE fanboy Gift idea

Got a brother/boyfriend/son/father who is a fanboy and difficult to buy presents for.

Then take a look at
Flashrods apparently "make the coolest hard drive cars"

Bold statement, but i'm not sure there is a lot of competition in the hard drives shaped like cars market.

Well just in case the market gets to crowded Flashrods have played their trump card already.

When it comes to having an external hard drive, having one that looks like the Delorean from BTTF3 is a winner. Now having to pay $250 for a 500gb external hardrive IS a bit steep... I mean they could have at least included HiDef rips of the movie with it.

But its one for the extreme fanboys so i guess that's why it makes it the IDEAL Christmas present.

Links for the car are here

Dr Who Christmas Trinkets

Stuck for a present to get me for Christmas?
No really... you are right?

The try one of these keychains from

Each of these keychains hides a cool secret. The diecast TARDIS keychain unscrews to reveal a secret cash compartment, the other two keychains are mini flashlights: one fashioned like the 10th Doctor's sonic screwdriver, the other a red Dalek.

By the way... I prefer the Tardis one :D

Greedo Shoots First.... in high heels

Here is a recently found photo from the set of Star Wars with George Lucas directing Greedo who happens to be wearing some uncomfortable and ugly looking high heels.

My view of Greedo is now completely changed. I'll never watch Star Wars again without thinking that Greedo is wearing high heels.

Koona t'chuta, Solo? Always though it meant "going somewhere Solo?" Maybe it should be "my heels are killing me Solo"

Star Wars As Other Movies

Graphic Designer Matt Ranzetta comes up with quiet an interesting concept.
Using Imagery from Star Wars he creates movie posters for other movies but yet still manages to make them fit the star wars universe.

I think they are amazing, and I'd love a print of EMPIRE OF THE SUN

Don't Stop Believin' in RoboCop


Yes this song has probably been played to death in the last 4-5 years, taking a once great song and having it tarnished by being overplayed and overused.

The song has appeared in a number of film and television series, including The Wedding Singer, Scrubs, Family Guy, Monster, Shrek the Halls, Bedtime Stories, The Losers, Yes Dear, King of the Hill, South Park, Cold Case, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, My Name Is Earl, Just Shoot Me, Laguna Beach and its even been gayified and became THEE Glee song

On Youtube there are probably 100's of fan made videos for both the original and Glee versions

But i recently stumbuled across this video, which is one of the earliest mash ups i could find of the song and simply put... it's Genius

Now... who wants to watch Robocop again?

How Many Doctors Can You Fit In A Tardis?

Not that many according to this TShirt from

T-Shirt designed by Ian Leino

Only one slight problem with that T-Shirt, It doesn't exist anymore, Teefury have a policy of one day and then its gone with the t-shirts they sell on their website.
It was yesterdays T-Shirt :(

Still, I do like fanboy T-Shirts

Calvin & Hobbes Vs Ritalin

I am a huge Calvin & Hobbes fan, I can sit and read their comic strip all day long simply because its clever and very witty.

This is a fan edit of one of their strips, The story being I guess that Calvins parents have decided that he suffers from ADD and he has been prescribed Ritalin

Will he abandon his closest and dearest friend... Read and find out.

I have to admit... I kinda got a little choked up at the genius of that fan edit.

Doctor Who Lego

Unfortunately these dont exist.. but why don't they?
Doctor Who and legos are a perfect combination.
Give me a box of blue and white legos and the 1st thing id make would be a tardis :D

Also i'd love to see a Lego Doctor Who game... those games are SOOOOOO much fun

Can you name them all?

Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol preview


Last Friday saw the Annual Children in need Telethon, Which also brought around the now annual "Doctor Who Christmas Special Preview"


I've watched this trailer about 10 times... I've no idea what's going on.
So many questions about it.

Why is Amy wearing her Policeman's Uniform?
Why is Amy wearing said uniform on what appears to be a futuristic spaceship?
Why is Rory dressed like a centurion again?
Is "Time can be re written" a continuing story arc?
Can I wait till Dec 25th to see this?

Yay for Doctor Who Making christmas day awesome is all I have to say.

Death Of The Doctor Trailer


Two Trailers for next weeks Who heavy Sarah Jane Adventures have been released.

First is the " Coming Next Week " Trailer

And this is the Official Trailer from the CBBC website:

Ok, I'm starting off... if U.N.I.T thought the Doctor was actually dead... you mean to tell me that Sarah Jane and Jo Grant are the only two companions that they were able to track down?

Ehhhhh I don't think so.

Glee Creator Ryan Murphy Might Direct ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW Remake


Really? I mean fucking really?


From Geektyrant
It's looking like Glee creator Ryan Murphy may end up developing a remake of the cult classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This is one of those films where I seriously don't see the need for a remake. The original movie has already reached legendary cult status, so what is the reason behind trying to remake it? You would think the hardcore fans are going to hate it.

I don't really care whose behind the project, just because TV show Glee has a solid following, it doesn't justify the remake of this cult classic. Murphy just got finished filming his Glee episode dedication the The Rocky Horror Picture Show, now Fox 2000 is trying to get him on board to take on the project.

The Rocky Horror Picture show came out in 1975 and to this day it still still sells out at midnight shows to fans. The show was written by cast member Richard O'Brien and director Jim Sharman. It launched the careers of Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick and had a cast that included O'Brien, Nell Campbell and Meat Loaf.

Murphy has not committed to the project yet. On top of Glee he is also looking at directing another film called the Normal Heart with Mark Ruffalo. Sony Pictures also paid him a cool $5 million bucks to write and direct a romantic comedy, that would star Julia Roberts. He's got a good amount of work on his plate, so will he add one more big project to it, that he may end up getting a lot of crap for?

I'm sorry but I dont care how fucking great the Glee episode is, do not remake RHPS
MTV tried to remake it 2 years ago and thankfully that fell on its arse.

New Who

Doctor Who returns to our screens this week... well... Kind of.

Matt Smith makes a guest appearance in next weeks Sarah Jane Adventures in and episode entitled "Death Of The Doctor".

Shall this be the start of a new tradition of having the Doctor appear in SJA every season?

Or is it simply a way for Russell T Davis to write one more Doctor Who story?

Death of the Doctor is on the October 25th an 26th

It shall be the only SJA I watch, because try as I might... I really don't like it.

Defenders Of The Earth Live Action Trailer


The great thing about the internet is that, it has taken every drunken or stoner conversation that has ever taken place and helped move it towards reality.

In this case it took the question "Dude... if they made a live action version of 80s Tv Classic Defenders Of The Earth, who would play the main cast?" and answered it with a mash up fan fiction trailer.

Ok, so... a few things.

Bruce Willis as Flash Gordon? Are you for fucking real? He is way too old to play Flash.Even with having a son whos 17-18 he is waaaaaaaaay to old. Daniel Craig however would be spot on.
Christian Bale as Mandrake is perfect casting and although you left out his assistant Kshin I would suggest Dev Patel in the role.
And while I agree Vin Diesel is a good call... I would suggest Rampage Jackson for Lothar, he is the perfect Big Angry Black Guy for the role.

Other than that... fun mash up trailer

Doctor Who Meets Red Dwarf


One of my other favourite BBC made sci fi shows was Red Dwarf (lets not mention the Back To Earth Specials ok)

Its hard to describe why i like it so much, its just random, daft and very silly.
It was so good there was even an abortive attempt at a US remake (I didn't think Star Trek: Voyager was that bad however)

As with with everything these days the Internet has seen fit to smash two worlds together.

So here is a Dwarfian version of the Doctor Who Intro for Trial of a Time Lord

They seem to merge a bit too well.

If you don't think so, try Remembrance of The Daleks ala Red Dwarf

Check out the youtube channel of elixaristhedragon for more of the same along with some classic Who re scored using the music of Murray Gold

Battlestar Galactica & The Enterprise

Battlestar Galactica finished up in March 2009 and it's taken a year and a half for fanboys to spot this hidden Easter egg.

Image is taken from the series finale (click on image for larger version)

Kirk obviously helped Galactica defeat the Cylon menace by sleeping with all the Threes, Sixes and Eights he could find...

Prostitution Vs Deforestation


This is the best news story of the week as far I'm concerned...

From The Guardian

Environmental organisations today expressed outrage over a plan by local authorities in the Abruzzo region of central Italy to combat prostitution with deforestation.

For decades, local law enforcement and politicians have struggled to police the Bonifica del Tronto road, a haven for the sex trade that runs inland for more than 10 miles from the Adriatic coast alongside the river Tronto. Over the years, cameras have been installed, raids mounted, 24-hour patrols implemented and the mayors of towns near the road have signed bylaws imposing fines on prostitutes' clients. All to no avail.

At the end of last month, the regional government's public works chief, Angelo Di Paolo, announced that the time had come for drastic measures. He said he had agreed with provincial and municipal representatives to cut down all the vegetation "around and along the banks [of the river Tronto]", in which the prostitutes ply their trade.

A local authority "ought to contribute to the solution of problems relating to law and order," said Di Paolo. But in a statement three environmental groups, including the WWF, said that the scheme would destroy 28 hectares (69 acres) of woodland vital to local ecosystems, saying the only crime of the thousands of trees on the local authorities' hit list had been to "offer with their fronds shelter and intimacy to sex slaves".

As everyone knows prostitutes are the most cunning of all woodland creatures, best to get them out now before they start foraging and storing food for the winter.

Also get rid of the "Cespuglio amoroso della prostituta" a nasty evergreen that has been known to "offer with their fronds shelter and intimacy to sex slaves"

What Sandy Collora did next


Ever wonder what happened to the guy who made Batman: Dead End way back in 2003 ?
Well it seems he released his first film called Hunter Prey earlier this year....

My simple review is... Batman: Dead End is far superior than this drawn out piece of shit. I've seen better made Star Wars fan flicks... seriously the costumes even seem to be a mix of Boba Fett meets Clone Trooper.
It reminds me of countless different sci fi shows/stories I've seen over the years.
When Sandy Collora and Nick Damon sat down to write the screenplay for this film I have a feeling they may have watched one or two of the following Deep Space Nine - Rocks and Shoals, Star Trek TOS - Arena, The Outer Limits - The Light Brigade and Enemy Mine

I know Sandy Collora only had a budget of $425000 dollars for this film, which is minuscule budget for a Sci Fi film, however even with a bigger budget i don't see this film being any better.As I've said before, I have seen better fanboy movies... point in case, the above mentioned Batman:Dead End.

Its the story that totally lets him down. It bored me, I really didn't care about any of the characters in this movie which I think comes from the introduction of Intergalactic war as the main plot point FIFTY MINUTES into the story. It was too drawn out, better if it was a 42 minute long Outer Limits episode.

Final words:
Please try harder or go back to making mind blowing fan flicks.

Scott Pilgrim Vs The Matrix


2 things

1) I don't like Michael Cera, Apart from Arrested Development I dont rate any of his work
2) The Matrix Trilogy was a pile of shit.. strong words but as body of work it was shit, its a trilogy built on one amazing film and 2 more cgi wankfests with a Jesus complex thrown in to round it all off....It should have been ONE flim

Why do I mention these things, well because they have both been merged in this amazing mashup trailer to make Scott Pilgrim Vs The Matrix

Scott Pilgrim opens tomorrow and I'm hoping it lives up the they hype.

This video is taken from an Australian show called Spicks and Specks, which as far as I can tell is close to an Aussie version of Nevermind The Buzzcocks (aka a celebrity music quizshow)

Never thought i'd hear the Doctor Who Theme Tune being played on a Didgeridoo, but now i have and i think it works quiet well.

Darth Schwarzenegger


Did you ever wonder what it would be like if James Earl Jones wasn't cast as the voice of Darth Vader in Star Wars?

What if the role had gone to a young Austrian chap called Arnold Schwarzenegger?

Well wonder no more because thanks to the internet, we now have that answer.

Gotta love Star wars redubs, they always make me smile, I have posted one of my favourite Starwars redubs here last year.

Beavis & Butthead to return to our screens


After a week or two of speculation it's been confirmed that Mike Judge's classic 1990's MTV animated series Beavis and Butt-Head will be resurrected with a series of all new episodes being created by Judge!

According to MTV:

The new series will keep Beavis and Butt-head in their perpetual high-school state, but it will be updated with today's pop culture. The two characters are known for watching music videos on their crap TV set and making little snarky comments about the videos they are watching. Now they will have targets like Lady Gaga and other popular musical artists out there. The basic plotline centers on two awesomely immature teenage friends whose banter was delivered against the backbeat of their constant idiotic laughter.

And the NYPost reports that "The return of "Beavis and Butt-head" will be a backdoor means for MTV to return to showing music videos -- something the network was founded upon but abandoned in the last decade to make room for popular reality shows like Laguna Beach, The Hills and Jersey Shore."

Beavis & Butthead where quintessentially 90s viewing... shall be interesting to see how the work in this decade .

Is that a banana in your pants?


Australian underwear company AussieBum has been monkeying around and the result is a range of men’s underwear made with bananas.

AussieBum’s Lloyd Jones said on Friday that the new eco-friendly banana range of undies incorporated 27 percent banana fibre, 64 percent cotton and nine percent lycra.

He said the banana fibre used in the underwear was made from a bark weave from the banana plant, which made the underwear not only lightweight but also very absorbent.

They are available here in Hipster & Brief

What... no banana hammocks?

*Insert your innunedo about bananas and possibly even a spanking the monkey reference here*

Not exactly a new news item, but one I forgot to post
