New "Nightmare on Elm Street" Trailer

As a huge fan of the original franchise and big-time supporter of Robert Englund, I'm a teeny bit skeptical of the remake, but I am impressed with the more realistic burn-scar makeup, and I think Jackie Earl Haley is an incredibly talented actor, so we'll see on April 30th.

Lazy Friday Image-O-Rama...

If AMC Does Half as Well as This Fan-Made Short is, I'll be Happy.

Great acting, great direction & script taken straight from the comic - this is pretty damn impressive! Via RetroCrush

EPIC Lego Graffiti!

Flickr user DROP HPC-ANC created this awesome piece of Lego nightmare on the side of a building somewhere (I don't know where, OK?). Well done, Drop!

This is Effin' Comedy Gold, BIIYAATCH!!!!

CAUTION: video commentary is NSFW, so turn the volume down & lean in! What would the world be like if the Insane Clown Posse and it's herd of Fago-swillin' bitch-slappin' , soap avoidin' painted-up ass-clowns took over the planet? I think this would be pretty accurate. So peer into this terrifying alternate reality at your own risk!

This Guy is My New Favorite Artist!

One of my all-time favorite art mediums' is the rock concert poster; ever since the 1960's when these bright & garish posters lined the Haight-Ashbury district loudly promoting such bands as The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and Quicksilver Messenger Service, these artworks have become just as important as the music it so beautifully represents.

Melbourne Australia's Ken Taylor truly takes this medium to new heights; the vivid colors, fantastic subject matter and mind-blowing font work make him one of the top names in rock poster design today. Ken's posters are available for purchase here.

New Art!

After I received my Thunder Robot the other day, I was so smitten by it that I decided to immortalize it in art! Why are there two, you ask? Well, once I finish the main subject of an illustration, I have to decide what background would look best with it, so I usually make four copies and give each one a different background. Also, I love bright colors, so I usually give each one a different color scheme. That's the great thing about digital illustration; it's super-easy and fun to edit colors and other elements. I usually choose my favorite from the four, but this time, I couldn't decide between these final two, so I decided to add them both to my shop. I also just got a commission to do another giant robot piece based on the Shogun Warrior; Grandizer, and when it's done I'll post it as well.

Walking Dead Volume 11 Review

What does Andrea see? I can only tell you that it isn't pretty.

I just finished Robert Kirkman's zombie masterpiece; Walking Dead volume 11, and I have just one question; how the Hell does Kirkman not only keep the writing and stories fresh, but how does he manage to make it better with each volume?!?

Anyone who reads this knows that the zombie thing really takes a backseat to the intense character studies of our key players and how people would cope if something like a zombie apocalypse really did occur. Just when you think Rick and company have experienced every possible example of human depravity and evil, something new and terrible pops up! I won't spoil it for you, but I'm surprised I didn't see it coming! I really can't wait to see how AMC brings this story to life on the small screen.

Your Smile For The Day....

You're welcome.

Left 4 Dead 2 Arrived Yesterday....

As many of you know, I am not a big video game guy, so bare with me if I don't use the correct terminology in reviewing this game. I've been really excited to play this the moment I saw the trailer for it online & was blown away by the incredible graphics.

I don't know if it's just me, but I have a hard time getting adjusted to a new game; my kids make fun of me because I can never remember which button does what, and I'm always pretty much just pressing everything as fast as I can and spazzing out anytime something comes at me. And in this game, there is ALWAYS something coming at you. And these aren't the slow, lumbering George Romero zombies. No sir, these are the Olympic sprinter Zack Snyder zombies that will pounce on you and tear your throat out before you can scream! I love the wide array of weapons available; various rifles, machine guns and pistols, chainsaws (too loud and shakey for me), pipebombs, rocket launchers, corrosive acid, crowbars, axes, cricket bats (nice nod to "Shaun of The Dead"), and my personal favorite; the samuri sword.

The graphics and gore are truly exceptional, the gameplay is good and fluid, but I get a little tired of the frequency of the attacking hordes, and I wish I had zoom-in capability like there is in Judge Dredd. Keep in mind that I am still stuck on the first level, and I play on the "easy" setting, since I suck and all. Overall, I would recommend this game and give it 3.5 out of five stars. I like lots of action and all, but sometimes I like to explore the environments without having something chasing me constantly.
