ALL THE SUITS

Normally, I’d be a little upset at a trailer for revealing so many awesome things like ALL THE SUITS. But in this case, it makes me want to see Iron Man 3 all that much more.  It also looks like Pepper gets her moment to shine.

As awesome as it all looks, I still can’t get over how horrible the Mandarin’s rings continue to look.  But I think I’ll get over that easily while I drool over ALL THE SUITS!

Grendizer USB

AZM Ally Zombie Wayne pointed me in the direction of Incubot’s Grendizer USB Kickstarter.  They want to make a USB drive based on the classic Go Nagai giant robot anime that will have a spaceship docking port and his double-harken axe weapon.  The Grendizer will hold 8Gigs of Kamen Rider fansubs or whatever else you want to put on it.  They’re pretty damn close to getting full funding so please, for the love of giant robots, spread the news!

Incubot also makes a Voltron USB drive in 2G and 8G flavors so if the Grendizer falls through, you can still get your giant robot USB goodness.

Wonder Woman Fan Film Proves That She Deserves the Spotlight

Sick of waiting for Warner Bros to get their shit together, director Jesse V Johnson put together this awesome Wonder Woman fan film starring Nina Bergman as Diana.  It’s fucking awesome!  I’d love to see this as a full length feature.  I guess I’m a sucker for some good old Nazi bashing, but it kind of makes sense to do a period piece for Wonder Woman the first time around.  It would also be kind of interesting to see a history of other women through history sent from Themyscira as ambassadors of ass kicking maybe in a flash back or something. AH!  So excited!  And now, so thoroughly disappointed because Warner Bros hasn’t done it yet.

Thanks to AZM Ally Jeff Posey for sending this along.

I Guess Calling a 9-Year-Old a Cunt is Satire?

onionFail

I’ve been staring at this fucking thing for hours trying to suss out the humor in calling a nine-year-old just nominated for Best Actress a cunt.  The only thing I can figure is that Quvenzhane Wallis is such an adorable sweetheart that calling her anything but is obviously a joke.  I guess?

Nope.

Even in our enlightened new millennium, women deal with sexism on a near daily basis.  Women in the public eye, even more so.  I kind of get that the Onion was making fun of the culture that gets so wrapped up in the gossipy he said/she said bullshit of Hollywood and award shows, but this thoughtless quip of a tweet comes off as just more malicious gossip.  Also, Quvenzhane is nine!  She’s not even a woman yet and she has to deal with this bullshit!

The fucked up thing is that this kind of shit is just going to get worse as Quvenzhane gets older.  The more movies she stars in, the more she’s in the spotlight, the more haters will throw shade at her.  It’s sad to think that cunt may be one of the more tame things she’ll be called.  So I guess in some way, the Onion’s little joke is a fucked up introduction to things that are to come.  But I’m sure she has the strength to ignore the haters and just go on being as awesome as she is.

Really disappointed in the Onion.

UPDATE: The Onion Apologizes

The Onion issued a statement apologizing to Quvenzhane.  I’ll quote:

Dear Readers,

On behalf of The Onion, I offer my personal apology to Quvenzhané Wallis and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the tweet that was circulated last night during the Oscars. It was crude and offensive—not to mention inconsistent with The Onion’s commitment to parody and satire, however biting.

No person should be subjected to such a senseless, humorless comment masquerading as satire.

The tweet was taken down within an hour of publication. We have instituted new and tighter Twitter procedures to ensure that this kind of mistake does not occur again.

In addition, we are taking immediate steps to discipline those individuals responsible.

Miss Wallis, you are young and talented and deserve better. All of us at The Onion are deeply sorry.

Sincerely,

Steve Hannah
CEO
The Onion

Very classy, Onion.  And now I find sick humor in the fact that a CEO named Steve has to apologize for an employee being a shithead.

The Third Member of LMFAO, The Mandarin

Mandarin Swag

Seriously?

What. The. Fuck.

I half expect him to jump off his chair, strip off that robe, and start shaking his junk at the camera.  Forget the fucking Cracker Jack rings, there’s absolutely no way I can take him seriously.
