I Don't Smoke Those 'Dominicans'

Only the finest smoke from Cuba is good enough for me. Another reason Canada is so great. No boycotting of Fidel and his Socialist Island Paradise for us because we NEED a warm place to go during the winter.

I Deserve This Milestone

Kinda cool seeing this number of page views. I think it means I have gone insane - I never do anything half way so I shouldn't be surprised that blogging is no different. Can you imagine what I could do in this world if I used my powers in a productive way? Insanity and genius is separated by a fine, fine line my friends.

Year In Review - January Thru April 2012

One of the great things I do at this time of year is going back through my many many posts of the past year. Here are the highlights chosen by our crack staff here at Cave of Cool Inc. If you are interested in the reviews of my favorite movies just click the titles.

Grumpy Cat

The perfect symbol for our troubled times.

Mark Ruffalo in The Avengers

One punch - 'nuff said. This movie had every reason to fail but it worked in spectacular fashion. A new bar has been set for superhero movies and that is great for every fanboy out there.

POP! Vinyl Action Figures
Low cost, great design and fantastic packaging all add up to a winning line. The fact that they have  the license to do so many popular characters means there is something for everyone to love here. I have never been a fan of this 'cute' style but these won me over right from the beginning.
Selena Gomez

Despite her continued flirtation with the Idiot Bieber, she is still the hardest working girl in showbiz. When the hell is Spring Breakers coming out? I need to see how my best girl deals with this grown up role. She knows exactly what she is doing with her career and with all the attention on her she hasn't lost her mind. That in itself is admirable.
The Clone Wars
I have such faith in the future for the Star Wars franchise because of how great this program has been over the past five seasons. Proof that George Lucas isn't the only one who can do justice to his vision.
Justified Season 3

This series holds nothing back and anything with Walton Goggins is going to be gold. I never know where this one is going and that is a thrilling thing even in this Golden Age of Television.
The End Of iCarly
No show entertained me so consistently than iCarly. Well written and acted and often laugh out loud funny, I will miss it now that it is gone. I have high hopes for the spinoff, Sam and Cat, featuring Sam (Jennette McCurdy) and Cat (Ariana Grande) from Victorious.
Colossus By Marvel Select
Marvel Select puts out some of the best action figures around and this Colossus was the cream of the crop for me.
Canadian Kids Send Lego Man Into Space

Nazis from the dark side of the Moon. Not as great as the concept promised but better than we had any right to expect. I followed this production for years and was very entertained by the results. The trailer is also the best one I saw all year.

Comic Panels Of The Year

Why Everything Sucks

DC Nation Shorts

I so hope they get back to making these fantastic shorts but with DC you never know these days that anyone in that company can spot quality and exploit it.

Best of Cosplay Part One

I reposted my favorite captions HERE if you are interested in seeing my genius again.

Superhero Media Crossover

It’s easy to forget how much the comic stylings of the 60’s and 70’s have inspired modern films and just how timeless those two-dimensional, spandex-clad superheroes can be. This series replaces live action with the lines they were born from, interlacing cinematography with storyboard.

A true homage to Kirby, Ditko, Romita Sr. and all the other artists that kept inspiring and being a reference to the modern media. And all of us.


1982 Was A Hell Of A Summer For Movies

I was 17 that summer and we saw everything new that came out. I so remember $2 Tuesdays. You could see a movie multiple times without it taking a huge chunk of your allowance to do so. It's no surprise that these films were some of the most popular ever released. They made the home video business into something viable and thrilling.
