I love these costume redesigns that 'Project Rooftop' does from time to time. This one of Wolverine is one of my favorites yet. The more iconic the character, the more difficult it is to create something that both works for the character and is instantly recognizable to the casual observer.

Now where is my cartoon or live action adventure based on this image? NOWHERE I tell you because no one cares or loves anymore. It only all ever about the money, not the love of the subject matter.

are dancing! Happy Halloween everyone. Our long national nightmare is over and we can now commune with our demon overlords. Don't waste it this time bitches. Ask for something nice not the death of your enemies. That NEVER works out right. Evil always comes with a price.

Stargate Universe - is becoming as good as show as I could ever hope it would be. It's a true survival story with great personalities. Pitch perfect writing and characterization creates intense drama regardless of the setting. Even if you aren't a fan of the 'Stargate' shows or science fiction in general you should be watching this program.
I am lovin on Top Chef, the anti-Hell's Kitchen. I appreciate the creativity and how the food is plated but it makes me crazy the way they give you SO LITTLE. I realize its food as art but Big Daddy needs to eat. I would trade their delicate dishes for a Wendy's double burger anyday. Call me a peasant all you like bitches but I need me some BEEEEEF!

And I will say it again. Most of the destruction of your larger churches has been done by huge women with tentacles. What you ever did to piss that particular demographic off is lost to me. Maybe if you made the pews more comfortable? Better parking? More egg salad sammiches? You gotta keep up with the times or you will be visited by Betty Cthulhu and her friends.

As a long time fan of the space program I was 'wowed' by this picture that actually shows the FACE of Neil Armstrong on the surface of the moon. You only ever see pictures of Buzz (since Neil held the camera most of the time) and the gold reflective shield is almost always down. This picture really brought home the reality of the moment for me in way I never thought it would. That IS a guy in a space suit. And he REALLY is on the moon. Holy crap. Thank you interwebs - with your series of tubes you give me love.
"This image was just recently published and is from a film camera that was mounted on the Apollo 11 lunar lander. I know technically this might not be considered a photograph but it’s very rare to see an astronaut’s face on the moon except in sci-fi movies so I wanted to include it in the list. The image was discovered while viewing NASA films. As Armstrong raised his gold reflexive visor (which normally obscures the astronaut’s face), his face appears just for a split second on the film. The footage was transferred into high definition format and then a single frame was made into the image above.
Interesting Fact: Because Armstrong was the guy with the camera most of the iconic pictures are of Aldrin and very few of Armstrong. This year on the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing Armstrong was presented this picture. Despite his modesty Armstrong was impressed to receive the print of himself as a souvenir."

This will become a Halloween tradition if I have anything to say about it. I loved the original 'Monsters vs Aliens' movie and this short special is just as good as the movie albiet in a shorter form. Only on this night could the 'monsters' seem like oridnary trick or treaters. When mutant pumpkins go nuts all over town after aliens dump their septic waste on a local pumpkin patch our heroes have to step in, ignore their Halloween issues and save the day. Just like it happens in real life. I gotta admit the candy eating, illiterate, gobblygook spouting, pumpykins do freak me out a bit but everything is delicious and the animation looks candy coated and good enough to eat itself.

The last 5 mintues of this week's 'Community' was about the finest 'Bat moment' of the week in a week FULL of 'Batman' moments. I have no picture or video to show but if you have seen it or do see it and want to send me the clip or a screen capture then you are a mensch. It simply hit me where I live.

If you know anything about 'Judgement Bears' you would know that it really important to leave out sacrificial pumpkins noms for them at this time of year outside of the Cave of Cool. You don't need to listen to a years worth of "Oh sure, you can give out candy to the children but you can't be bothered leaving me a nice crunchy seal filled pumpkin to enjoy. With everything I do for you?" You see, 'Judgement Bear' is often times also a 'Guilt Bear'.

Gots me some mad love for Salvador Dali, the magnificent batshit crazy Surrealist Spanish artist. I carried this same picture around with me all through my University years and it currently rests on one of the shelves in the library section of the Cave of Cool. It just speaks to me of the way neither of them or any of us really fully understand what the hell is going on in this world. That thought fills me with a sublime calm.

Jay teases stepson Manny about his wearing of a traditional Colombian poncho on the first day of school so Manny leaves it in the car. Gloria finds her son's Poncho and is mad at Jay.
Gloria (Sofía Vergara) - "Batman doesn't get picked on and he wears a cape. A poncho is just a cape that goes all the way around."
Jay (Ed O'Neil) - "Batman doesn't get picked on because he's a muscular genius. Manny can't make it to the top bunk."

The eminent Dr Monkey made a little joke about this question but it really got me thinking about it in a much deeper way. It's the question at the heart of a famous black play/book/movie that I am ashamed to say I have not read since it was created by my girl, Miss Maya Anjelou. I do remember the movie on TV, however, and it's themes have always stuck with me.
I am going to ask you all to answer that simple question. You can be funny or profound or deliciously insane as befits your feelings at the moment.
Does the question only refer to the black experience since the phrase comes from the poem of a slave or does it reflect a more universal truth? You can go to Dr. Monkey's site to see what I think when you are done. This is one I really care that you comment on if you are a regular visitor to this blog. Lets see if 50 of the nearly 850 average daily visitors can wow me.
