Shatnerquake!

 Right up there with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies on the idea-so-bizarre-it’s-brilliant scale, we find this gem of a book. I have not read it, but the product description is too delightful not to share: It’s the first ShatnerCon with William Shatner as the guest of honor! But after a failed terrorist attack by Campbellians, a crazy terrorist cult that worships Bruce Campbell, all of the characters ever played by William Shatner are suddenly sucked into our world. Their mission: hunt down and destroy the real William Shatner. Featuring: Captain Kirk, TJ Hooker, Denny Crane, Rescue 911 Shatner, Singer Shatner, Shakespearean Shatner, Twilight Zone Shatner, Cartoon Kirk, Esperanto Shatner, Priceline Shatner, SNL Shatner, and – of course – William Shatner! No costumed con-goer will be spared in their wave of destruction, no redshirt will make it out alive, and not even the Klingons will be able to stand up to a deranged Captain Kirk with a lightsaber. But these Shatner-clones are about to learn a hard lesson…that the real William Shatner doesn’t take crap from anybody. Not even himself.  Muahahaha! It’s worth the $9.95 price tag just in sheer camp value. No matter who wins, Shatner still takes a beating.    […]

Sneak Peek: Darth Vader Clock Radio

 Pardon me while I try to contain my inner 8 year old.  Think back to the dawn of Star Wars, the original trilogy. Do you remember how unbelievably freaking scary Darth Vader was, before we found out he was really a whiny emo bitch massively compensating for something? Yeah, I know it’s hard, but try. Yesterday, one of my devoted minions emailed me a link to a  Gizmodo article about this:    It’s not on the market yet, but rumor has it that it will soon be released from Sakar. I’m going to keep an eye out, because if anything wakes you up good and solid, it’s opening your eyes to a Lord of the Sith with talk radio blaring out of his head. […]

“Womanizer” Parody, featuring Geek Boys

 VenetianPrincess is a gifted parody video maker, and this one has been my personal favorite since Pearce sent it to me. Too good not to share! "Don’t need a Jock. I want a Spock."  *snorffle*

“Star Trek” has higher pre-sales than “Wolverine”

 According to The Holywood Reporter,  the new Star Trek has sold 25% more advance tickets that X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which opens next weekend. The pre-sales for the Star Trek movie are skewing older — news which leaves the whole of fandom falling over with un-surprise.  (Like, we really needed your statistics to tell us that, dudes.) Still, things don’t look bad for Wolverine (starring sexy monkey Hugh Jackman). The X-Men movie’s pre-sales are trending higher than they did for Iron Man, which opened on the same weekend in 2008, even though pirates managed to sneak a pre-release copy of the film (with unfinished FX) onto the web several weeks ago.  (I don’t believe the pirates have hurt the movie all that much. Most people geeky enough download it probably watched it while perfecting their Gambit costume for the midnight showing party, and the rest have to know that seeing it on the big screen with complete effects has to be better than squinting at your monitor wondering what was supposed to happening in the unfinished bits.) Only time will tell which movie will make more money, but I’m going to bet there’ll be a lot of geeks’ hard-earned bucks being spent at the cineplex in the next month, one way or another.

xkcd Book to be Published This Summer!

Not since Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups has anything combined two things I love so much! My favorite webcomic,  xkcd, is finally going to be published in  *swoon* book form!  News is spreading across the web that webcomic creator Randall Munroe is  planning to publish a paper-and-ink book, "sometime around June." The first run will be only 10,000 and be sold through breadpig.   (Breadpig, Inc. was founded by Alexis Ohanian, one of the founders of the social-news Web site reddit, and the proceeds go to the charity Room to Read according to this New York Times article. Pardon my digression.) If that first run number seems awfully low to you (as it does to me) you can ensure that you are notified when it is available by signing up for breadpig’s mailing list.  They promise your email will not be sold, bartered or SPAMed. I must go survey my Christmas list, to see how many copies I’ll need.   […]

Plants vs. Zombies

 From PopCap Games, the company that gave us the incredibly addicting Peggle and Peggle Nights (among others), has scheduled a release of their new game, Plants vs. Zombies May 5th.  To advertise it, they released an incredibly catchy music video, shown below, that has had me humming to myself and giggling intermittently for days.  […]
