A Live-Action “Jem & The Holograms” Is Coming, Which Means It’s Time For Some Crappy Photoshop!

I'll be honest, I don't know how I feel about today's announcement that '80s cartoon favorite, "Jem & The Holograms," is being made into a live-action movie. Mostly because three dudes who could not possibly understand the cultural significance of "Jem" are making it. They are: Scooter Braun, who manages, or attempts to manage, Justi…

Check Out This Trailer For The Calvin And Hobbes Documentary, “Dear Mr. Watterson”

Calvin And Hobbes was everything in my childhood. Everything. I read the strip every day in the my parents' newspaper and had all the Calvin And Hobbes books.

6 Pop Culture Icons Nobody Admits They Were Attracted To

As a child of pop culture, it should come as no little surprise that most of my psyche was formed by various cartoon and film studios and is tragically underequipped to manage real life, even to this day, which is why you can only find me on the Internet, as I tend to shun the…

Watch And Enjoy: “50 Shades Of Greyskull”

You will never catch me reading 50 Shades of Grey, so pardon me if I get all my info about Christian Grey etc. from watching this He-Man mashup from "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." I'm going to assume that Christian is a Skeletor-looking motherfucker, who happens to be really into butts.

Who Is Calling Michelle Obama Fat?

Michelle Obama? Fat? The woman whose toned upper-arms have headlined the 10 o'clock news? Who would dare say such a thing? In a cartoon on a conservative web site called BigGovernment.com, the First Lady and the president are depicted chowing down on dinner — she with a pile of hamburgers and…

Cartoon Shows Sonia Sotomayor Strung Up Like A Piñata

So, I really couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw a new cartoon that ran in The Oklahoman. “Fiesta Time at the First Confirmation” oh-so-inappropriately depicts Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor... strung up like a piñata. Cameras and microphones look on as a sombrero-wearing President Obama asks, “Who wants to be first?” to a bunch…

Latest Gov Is A Cheater Too!

New York’s new Governor Patterson, the replacement for hooker-lovin' Eliot Spitzer, has just admitted to cheating on his wife for years. What is going on with our male politicians? They may make (and break) the laws, but it seems like the ladies have got more clout over Capitol Hill than any lobby!

Do Nice Guys Really Finish Last?

sweet nothings by ~Bob-Rz on deviantART What do women have against nice guys? Honestly, I don't think we have anything against them. It's not like we want to be treated like crap. If a guy we're totally into is super nice, that's amazing. But if a guy we're not quite…
