Images of the inner sleeve for Morrissey’s “I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris” single have began to surface.  It features Morrissey, his band, some well placed 7″ records, and not much else.  Pic after the jump (NSFW!). (more…)

A Real American Hero

Snake Eyes

Comingsoon.net and Superherohype.com have teamed up for the exlcusive first look at the G.I. Joe:  The Rise of Cobra trailer that’s gonna play during the Superbowl.  Stephen Sommers is directing this, and while this may not seem that exciting, I think that his knack for big, cheesey action movies could work with this material.  Trailer looks pretty damn good.  I’m stoked, and you can find me at the theater on August 7.

Best. Show.


Straight up, this is the best show on television.  Everything about this is simply stunning.  The episode that premiered tonight was phenomenal.  It’s a shame that these are the last episodes, although the story that Ron Moore and David Eick have crafted is amazing, and I am excited to see how they conclude it.  This is now tied with Arrested Development as my favorite show ever (excluding Boy Meets World).  Go watch this show.  Now.  Seriously, go get the dvds and start watching them.  You won’t be sorry.

Thank goodness. No offense Josh Bard. And to all of the people who are upset about this, and complained about the contract offer, the Red Sox effectively got two years’ worth of him (if the option is exercised), for one of last year’s paychecks. So shut the hell up. And please don’t sit near me when I go to the games.

New York Daily News has a quote from Jeffery Tambor at his Upright Citizens Brigade performance.  Tambor told the paper, “The movie is going to happen this year, and Michael Cera is on board. Trust me.”  This isn’t really an official announcement, but if Tambor said it, I believe him.  Can we start a countdown now?

Disney is going to release X-Men:  The Animated Series on dvd April 28.  There’s not much info except that Volumes 1 and 2 are coming out and each has 2 discs.  Hopefully this will be a proper release with all of the episodes and not just select ones.  Either way, this is at least a good step in getting one of the best cartoons out on dvd.

Coraline Dunks

Nike teamed up with Neil Gaiman to make these Dunks based on the movie adaptation of his book Coraline.  Only 1000 are gonna be made, and you can only get them by watching the movie and getting a code that you enter online to try to win them.  So ill.  If that wasn’t enough, it’s directed by Henry Selick, otherwise known for directing The Nightmare Before ChristmasCoraline opens February 6.  Who wants to go with me?  More pics and a trailer after the jump.

United States of Tara is a show that recently premiered on Showtime, about a mother who has Dissociative Identity Disorder — meaning she, without warning, switches from her normal personality to that of any one of her three “alters.” These three include teenage hellcat “T”, redneck macho biker “Buck” and 50’s Stepford homemaker “Alice.” The show is funny, poignant, emotional and fabulous — and here are 6 reasons why you should watch it:

1. It was co-created and co-written by Diablo Cody, creator of Juno

2. Stars Toni Collette

3. Produced by Steven Spielberg

4. Featuring John Corbett (Aidan of Sex and the City fame)

5. Appearance by Tony Hale (BUSTER from Arrested Development!)

6. Marshall, Tara’s middle-school aged son (played by Keir Gilchrist), has to be one of the best characters ever to appear in a TV series

There are more, but that’s all for now. Check it out on Sunday nights at 1opm on Showtime. You can also watch the episodes On Demand from Comcast, or you can check out the first one for free at Showtime’s website by clicking here.
