We will forgive those who slept through June… The Homestar Runner website has been updated with a new animation which clues us in on what everyone did on their “time off”. Bologna sammich anyone? (yes there is an Easter Egg in this one). It’s good to see Homestar and company back after the death of the Chapman brother’s father in April. Welcome back Homstar Runner! We missed you! And…uh…yes, we missed you too Strong Bad. Don’t you have some e-mails to answer? via Homestar Runner (link)
The Batman Animated Series ran for six years (1992 – 1998), and in that time became the definitive Batman television show of all time. When the show made the move to the Fox Kids Network (previously on WB) changes were made – some for the good, some for the bad. The final 24 episodes have been collected in the recently released Batman: The Animated Season Volume 4, making for a great DVD collection. via Consumer Electronics Net (link)
When we last left our hero hanging out on the pages of www.homestarrunner.com, Strong Bad had just finished reading and responding to the first 100 emails he ever received comprising the hilarious Strongbad_email.exe: The First 100 Emails DVD. Disc Four picks right up where the action left off. via Consumer Electronics Net (link)
Wizard wants it all? Apparently so. Interestingly, not a week after San Diego Comic-Con International, Wizard Entertainment (publishers of many comic and toy related publications) announced they will host a comic convention in the ATL (that’s Atlanta, GA for you who are in the dark). This is both good news and bad news.
Last week at the International San Diego Comic-Con Human Computing unveiled the latest update to their popular comic book catalogue software. Is the new version worth the price? Consumer Electronics Net, Stephen Schleicher thinks it is. via Consumer Electronics Net (link)
Chada put it best when we showed up at 9:00 am (an hour before the show opened) to packed crowds, “This is insane!” And insane it was. Shoulder to shoulder as you moved throughout the convention center. Makes you wish a man could fly…
Today was a day filled with DVD, movie, and television related panels. We sat through many of them, and got a two for one to boot.The program printed by the comic convention folk is sometimes misleading and sometimes very unclear. Such was the case with this morning’s first panel on the new releases from Anchor Bay Entertainment. If you have followed my articles over the years, many of you know my weird fandom (obsession some may call it) with Charisma Carpenter. When I saw her name listed as appearing to discuss new DVD releases, I knew we had to be
Yes, the headline says it all, the husband and wife duo of Stephen and Chada did win big today, but you’ll have to read on to find out how.
Chada and I went down to the convention center and signed in. Then we waited in line for THREE HOURS to get into preview night. While Chada was bored out of her mind (mainly because I forgot to bring the PSP with us), we were both glad we waited.
and so it begins… Got to San Diego for the motherload of all comicbook conventions, and we’re already tired! Walked about five miles in the SoCal heat and it took its toll on poor Chada. We’re taking off in a few minute to go sign in and check out Preview Night. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the biggest geek fan in the world and 1 being mild mannered Clark Kent, I would say I fall around a 7. Not strange enough to dress up, but goofy enough to get really excited about running around with
