BAT-BLOG BATMAN TOYS and COLLECTIBLES →
All things Batman. And that includes a lot of bat-shit crazy Batman items. Including this … thing.
The Brave and the Bold: The Lost Issues! →
The Brave and the Bold — a series that teamed up Batman with a different guest star each month — was one of my favorite comics as a kid, largely because it introduced me to a host of other cool characters in the DC Universe. Here’s a great site that creates covers for team ups that never happened. But should have!
Burkas and Birkins by Lindy West - Film - The... →
Thanks to Stephanie Drury for passing along one of the best movie reviews I’ve read recently. If only because of its brilliant final line.
Comedy Kickstart: ‘The West Wing’ →
Supreme Court: NFL 32 teams, not one entity - ESPN →
This is a huge precedent by the Supreme Court. The fallout should be interesting to watch. Not like how an NFL game is interesting to watch. More like how the NFL draft is interesting to watch. That is, not very fun but incredibly important. And you really shouldn’t watch it at all unless you’re in it. Hmm, I think I took a wrong turn somewhere around that last analogy.
The Periodic Table of The Empire Strikes Back... →
Another day, another fun periodic table.
Eh, what the hell. They didn’t owe us anything. TV is just like any other...– katekate is squared, a commenter on Gawker, who sums up the “Lost” series finale and viewers’ reactions to it perfectly … and even uses an Insane Clown Posse lyric to do it.
The Medium - The Death of the Open Web -... →
It’s an apt analogy — iPhone/iPad apps are causing urban flight from free online metro areas — but I think the author seems a little too blinded by the “prettiness” of apps and not the content. It’s like raving about your meal at the strip mall TGIFriday’s because of its kitsch but ignoring the small downtown tapas restaurant with the fabulous food you...
You don’t have to be overly macho. You don’t have to be over-complimentary. Gain...– John Curtis Holmes
Decoding Your Don Draper And Liz Lemon Fantasies →
Fascinating think piece about the performance of gender. Agree with it or not, it’s worth your time.
Quantum teleportation achieved over ten miles of... →
Vertigo’s Unknown Soldier To Bite The Bullet With... →
This is too bad but not surprising. I’m glad a series like “Unknown Soldier” was given a chance, especially in this market.
Weekend jukebox: Happy birthday, synthetic life... →
A weekend without music is like beer without alcohol. That’s why I’m taking a cue from former MKE editorial assistant Adam Lovinus who used to keep the office filled with wicked beats…
Is Sawyer from ‘Lost’ really Iron Man? One comic... →
I’ve gotten into a habit of using this blog as a way to point out celebrity doppelgangers. Guess what, kids, this entry continues the trend. With a bit of a twist. One of the best superhero…
Scientists Create First Self-Replicating Synthetic... →
Didn’t get around to posting this yesterday. This is what makes me excited to live in the world today.
Movie Talk: Should We Now Call Him 'Captain... →
What do you think this “A” stands for!?! ANGLO-SAXON!?!
The Avengers Will Face the Skrulls in 2012 →
Personally, I was hoping the Avengers would face the Harlem Globetrotters or Emma Peel and John Steed (thanks, Matt!). I guess those would probably make for better sequels.
Upfronts: ‘Community’ Creator Fires Back at ‘Big... →
“Community” is vastly superior to “Big Bang Theory,” and I wish Dan Harmon and the talented cast all luck in the world.
48 HR Magazine Experiment Big Hit, Except for That... →
I have to admit that I did initially wonder if this magazine had any connection to CBS.
Creating a Magazine Over a Weekend - Digits - WSJ →
I’m a sucker for these type of high-concept ideas. What’s cool is that anyone c ould do this. I’d like to see more people try it.
These Golden Books Are Not For Children - Humor -... →
I. Want. This. Print. And these.
MICHAEL BAY’S REVENGE! No More Megan –... →
Oh no. Megan Fox doesn’t have to star in “Transformers 3.” She must feel horrible. I imagine this is akin to finding out you’ve been fired from your jabbing your eye with a hot poker job. Sure, no more pay check. But also, no more hot poker to the eye. I’m no Megan Fox fan, but, Nikki Finke, I think you’re overstating the death of her career. She’s not an...
The art that inspired Godzilla and other giant... →
Toho’s monsters don’t begin their existences as bodysuits. Illustrators must first sketch out every atomic spike, nuclear fang, and cybernetic proboscis adorning their rubbery hides. Check out Toho’s designs for such classic kaiju as Mechagodzilla, Mothra, and Ghidorah.
New David Simon Project To Investigate Happy,... →
I think I might head down there see if I can snatch up a walk-on role as “Guy at Open House.” *Fingers crossed*
MIZZOU Magazine - Home-grown Hamm →
My friend Karen Pojmann sent me this article. I only went to Mizzou for a semester and a half, but I tell everyone I took the fall for Jon Hamm after a midnight dance-off at Shattered went horribly, horribly wrong. We haven’t spoken since.
RT @GVanAuken: Vince Carter is weak. Like $1 rail drink special weak.
A dream sequence in a Joss Whedon-directed TV episode? That’s highly unusual! Love you, Joss!
Rage … building …
Watching GLEE because LOST has some recording issues. After today’s blog fun, this ep. is a bit creepy. Waiting for @TeecycleTim pop up.

Women of Joss Whedon - UGO.com →
In honor of tonight’s Joss Whedon-directed episode of #”Glee.” Also in honor of hot women who ended up in some pretty awesome roles.
Scott Pilgrim Video Game References - UGO.com →
If you’ve never heard of Scott Pilgrim, do two things. First, punch yourself in the face for being such a stupid turd head. Second, check out the Scott Pilgrim books before you see the movie starring Michael Cera. In the meantime, go to this link. It’ll make the face punch feel better.
12 People Who Could Replace Steve Carell on The... →
David Brent replacing Michael Scott? Genius! Thanks, Whitney!
Social media is a snap if you know the formula: @TeecycleTim + @ActuallyNPH + GLEE = Monster traffic.
Shame on your bad policies, Facebook! (Don’t... →
What a tangled, complicated relationship the media has with Facebook. News sites have been reporting about many people’s concerns and outrage over Facebook management changing its…

If you’ve read this blog before, you know I can have difficulty telling people apart. Like say Amy Adams and Isla Fisher. Tonight, I’m hitting a trifecta of people I can’t tell apart. Or at…
You’d think I’d be able to find one picture of Matthew Morrison rockin’ a pair of sunglasses. Why do you hate me, Internets?
Judy Greer is everywhere! Except where I want her most. In my bed.
Chris Berman’s calling Wednesday’s Yankee-Rays game? NOOOOO!
Taking over the world (and your attention span)... →
Over the weekend–in between fits of anger directed at demented fathers who get sexual gratification from belittling teenage boys–I “rediscovered” my Tumblr account (there’s a feed from…
You’d think ABC Family would have the decency to change it to the Marquette Warriors, not Golden Eagles, on THAT ’70s SHOW.
NBC moves “Parks and Recreation” to midseason? NOOOOOO! (via @popcandy) http://goo.gl/7jMZ
I’m a sucker for creative plays on the periodic table of elements. This superhero one is great. http://goo.gl/brVb
