Guardians of the Galaxy GIVEAWAY!

I think this is only open to viewers in the USA, because you have to have an AMC/Stubs membership to be eligible. If you were born in the wrong country – like me – i feel your pain (hug/pat on head). We must just be strong; and give moral support to our American Nerd-Knights on their quest to find this rare pin. Go now; with our blessing and find it for the fandom…

P.S. Don’t come back empty handed…

Captain Marvel

So; after a few tweets from Dwayne (the Rock) Johnson; everyone has been led to believe that he will be portraying Captain Marvel in the D.C./Warner Bros. film. Other speculate he could be the villain – Black Adam.

I like the Rock; he could totally be a super-super hero. What do you think?

Original Artwork for sale at Comic-Con

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle creator; Kevin Eastman; is selling his very first drawing of the characters (below) at Comic-Con for $ 2 Million!

tmnt

He first drew the pizza-loving crime-fighting turtles in 1984.

The timing of the sale comes as the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” is celebrating its 30th anniversary, and has a new live-action feature out in theaters on Aug. 8 from Paramount. It also has a successful animated TV series airing on Nickelodeon, and is still popular as a toy and comic-book line, along with video games and other licensed merchandise.

Are you dedicated enough as a fan to fork out $ 2 Mill?

Sonnet 35

As a nerd; i do read from time to time. When i was in high school; a friend gave me a book with all of Shakespeare’s sonnets. This is my favorite one:

No more be griev’d at that which thou hast done:
Roses have thorns, and silver fountains mud,
Clouds and eclipses stain both moon and sun,
And loathsome canker lives in sweetest bud.
All men make faults, and even I in this,
Authorizing thy trespass with compare,
Myself corrupting, salving thy amiss,
Excusing thy sins more than thy sins are;
For to thy sensual fault I bring in sense,
(Thy adverse party is thy advocate)
And ‘gainst myself a lawful plea commence:
Such civil war is in my love and hate
That I an accessary needs must be
To that sweet thief which sourly robs from me.

Cute Alien Creatures

Ok, so you’re confused at how ‘cute’ and ‘alien’ feature in the same sentence; not to worry – this post will iron out those frown lines 🙂 I think these aliens are cute:

Stitch (Experiment 626):

Originally created to cause chaos across the galaxy, he is marked by his mischievous behavior. I have a little Stitch inside of me.

Fuzzle:

In Munch’s Oddysee, these creatures were often used as test lab animals by the notorious Vykker scientists. Munch became the freedom fighter for the fuzzles, and in return they helped Munch escape from Vykker’s Labs.

Ewok:

Ewoks were sentient, diminutive, furry bipeds native to the forest moon of Endor. They were most notable for helping the Rebel Alliance defeat the forces of the Galactic Empire at the Battle of Endor, allowing the shield generator there to be destroyed, and in turn, the second Death Star.

Gremlins:

Despite not being wicked and vicious like other gremlins, Gizmo has shown he’s just as adept as they are with weapons and electrical devices. Gizmo is an Eternal. The Eternals come from the planet which the original Mogwai and Gremlins all come from, and when the majority of their species became evil beasts, the Eternals went into hiding, refusing to obey the Gremlins’ cruel-hearted regime after they took over the planet.

Aliens (Little Green Men):

The aliens are found in a claw vending machine at Pizza Planet that Buzz Lightyear climbs into. They believe the crane is a kind of deity who sometimes selects one of their kind to go to a better place. Mrs. Potato Head adopts the ones her husband saves; and later Andy gives them to Bonnie.

Insectosaurus:

He was a one-inch grub transformed by radiation into a 350-foot tall monster that attacked Tokyo. He was captured in 1969 and formed a close bond with the The Missing Link, who is the only person that can understand him.

Lamarr:

Lamarr is a headcrab who has been debeaked, preventing her from latching onto and controlling a host. It is unknown when or why Kleiner captured Lamarr, though he has since domesticated her (at least to an extent) and keeps her as a pet.

I know i left out E.T. Yes E.T. is cute – in a not so ‘fluffy’ sort of way. Do you have any cute alien creatures to add to the list?

P.S. Face huggers are NOT cute!
