3.9 Beebo The God Of War

So, Jax left.

About halfway through the episode, I wrote in my notes "Man, how are they going to make this emotionally poignant when it's so goddamn funny?" So needless to say I didn't see the end of Beebo The God Of War coming, which is part of why Jax's departure hit me that hard.

It makes perfect sense as to why. After last week and the death of Martin Stein, he's powerless, alone and a bit of a loose appendage on the Legends. If he stuck around, we'd be constantly wondering when he would get his Firestorm powers back.

Tickle Me Elmo Minus His Famous Red Fur Is Downright Disturbing (Video)
Tickle Me Elmo is, like, the cutest fuzzy little red fella on God’s green earth… until he’s “skinned,” with only his mechanical bones showing. And then, not so cute. The creative whackadoos at the entertainment website TheCHIVE stripped the beloved Muppet of his trademark fur, gave him a tickle and, although he still giggled, the effect was a whole lot let adorable and a whole lot more creepy.

A Furless Tickle Me Elmo Just Gave Me Nightmares for a Month

So it’s already bad enough to know that Ticke Me Elmo was originally voiced by an accused pedophile. That’s right Kevin Clash, we haven’t forgotten about the fact that you like the same children that you’re catering to with Elmo’s voice only you don’t want to just make them smile, you want them to make you smile in more ways than one. Gross, disturbing and I’m sorry for bringing that name back into the mix. Speaking of disturbing, have you ever seen what a Tickle Me Elmo doll looks like without the fur?

Ah, old school toy crazes are a funny thing, don't you think? Remember Beanie Babies, Cabbage Patch Kids, and Tickle Me Elmo? Heh, I've got a quick story for you about that little red menace.

Kirsten Johnson’s “visual memoir” has already completed a starry trot around the festival circuit, kicking off with a lauded debut at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, but it still demands to be seen by a wider audience.

Outlander Recap: All Jacked Up

Need to catch up? Check out last week’s Outlander recap here.

In the arcade-claw game that is Jamie Fraser’s life, another coveted — and, in this case, annoyingly smug and deserving of death — toy just slipped out of grasp.

This week’s Outlander has Lord Broch Tuarach run into his longtime enemy/recent rapist Black Jack Randall, and it’s not long before the two men make plans to duel. But Claire decides that the threat to her future husband (as in, husband from the future) is too great, and for reasons we’ll get to in a minute,

Ed Catto: Our Geek Economy

  • Comicmix
In recent years we’ve seen big changes in the Pop Culture retail landscape. Record stores are a thing of the past, of course. We all buy, own and experience music in very different ways than we did even ten years ago. Big toy stores like Toys R Us continue to struggle while small stores become as rare as Tickle Me Elmo was a decade ago. Independent bookstores have struggled, clobbered by online sales and the big chains. In fact, the remaining big retail chains are struggling too.

Barnes & Noble reported that revenue for its fiscal first quarter (which ended on Aug 1st – contradicting all those calendars they sell) at its retail stores and website fell to $939 million, a drop of 1.7% vs. the previous year. Ebida (earnings before interest, depreciation and amortization) for their retail business fell $21 million, to $45 million, versus a year ago.

But independent bookstores that focus on events,

From Kewpies to Minions: A Brief History of Pop Culture Cuteness

From Kewpies to Minions: A Brief History of Pop Culture Cuteness
It's seldom an accident. It's not a lightning strike or a shooting star — more like a mad science. It's specifically designed to make viewers weak in the knees and unable to suppress an "Awwwww" while held in its thrall. (Resistance is futile.) It's the art of manufacturing mass-produced, all-consuming Pop Culture Cuteness — and it's huge business.

For the most part, the cuteness-industrial-complex runs parallel to the zeitgeist, but sometimes — when the stars align to shine a certain twinkle down upon us — it violently butts into the mainstream. The recent arrival of Minions,

Breaking Bad dolls pulled from Toys R Us after complaints

They may have toys in their millions all under one roof, but Breaking Bad dolls is a step too far for Toys R Us…

Here’s one from our ‘you couldn’t make this up’ department. While Breaking Bad merchandise is to be expected, who would have thought that a Toys R Us exec would deem it a good idea to sell them in a kids’ toy shop?

Being able to pick up a Walter White or Jesse Pinkman doll – complete with meth-based accessories! - in the same shop as Lego, My Little Pony and Tickle Me Elmo (is that still a thing?) apparently doesn’t go down well with parents. Who could have guessed?

"While the show may be compelling viewing for adults, its violent content and celebration of the drug trade make this collection unsuitable to be sold alongside Barbie dolls and Disney characters," wrote Susan Schrivjer, the

Film Review: ‘Patch Town’

Film Review: ‘Patch Town’
A gloriously ambitious, spectacularly misguided Frankenstein’s monster of a movie that combines Soviet-era iconography, Eastern European folklore and Western consumer-culture critique with a dash of song and dance, “Patch Town” imagines a world where babies are harvested from cabbage fields, sold to children as dolls, then rounded up and enslaved to work in a prison-like toy factory. That’s an epic undertaking for any debuting feature helmer, and one has to admire the sheer scale of Craig Goodwill’s vision (first implemented in his 2011 short film), even if the writing and direction reveal that he’s not yet up to the task.

Still, better to have overreached and failed than to play it safe, and no one involved is less than fully committed to a project that, had it worked, might have sat alongside such mad-dreamer movies as “Brazil” and “The City of Lost Children.” Goodwill must have had

Shia Labeouf Plagiarizes More Apologies

Shia Labeouf Plagiarizes More Apologies
Shia Labeouf should maybe start going by Lie-a Labeouf. Dude loves plagiarizing more than your little nephew loves the Tickle Me Ferbie he got from Santa. This all started a couple of weeks back when people noticed that the Beef’s debut short film, HowardCantour.com, marked a strong resemblance to Daniel Clowes's comic Justin M. Damiano. Labeouf apologized on Twitter, but then it was revealed his apology was plagiarized from a four-year-old Yahoo Answers comment. Well, he’s back to apologizing for plagiarizing while plagiarizing.Here are the two tweets in question: The first is ripped verbatim from Jade Goody’s apology for being racist on Celebrity Big Brother. The second is word for word (hashtag for hashtag) the same as an apology porn star Mr. Marcus tweeted in 2012 for hiding his syphilis (though Mm's tweet was eventually deleted). As Picasso famously said, “Good artists copy, great artists steal syphilis apologies.

Fatherhood #1 is a strange mix of sweet and disturbing

Fatherhood #1

Written by Ryan K. Lindsay

Illustrated by Daniel Schneider

Colored by Paulina Ganucheau

Lettered by Brandon DeStefano

Designed by Christopher Kosek

Published by Challenger Comics

Fatherhood is the story of a broken family, one little girl and a father who would do pretty much anything to make her happy. Divorced, drowning in debt and alone, the man seeks out a way to reconnect with his daughter. The method he chooses to make that connection is to get her a much coveted doll. When he is unable to procure one for her, he suffers a full on psychosomatic breakdown, complete with costume change and gratuitous violence.

Unlike most comic books, this story is told by a narrator in omniscient third person instead of relying on the use of pure first person dialogue. In fact the vast majority of dialogue that does occur happens after the shift from reality to vigilant toy retriever.

Elvis, The Movie – The DVD Review

There have been many TV bios of Elvis Presley but Elvis, The Movie, the once-elusive 1979 feature starring Kurt Russell, was the first and is still the best. When Elvis died August 16 1978 at age 42, it sent shock waves around the world, comparable to the deaths of Princess Diana or Michael Jackson in later decades. A carnival atmosphere developed in Memphis as thousands of mourners gathered around the gates of Graceland and sales of Elvis. music skyrocketed. The 3-hour epic Elvis The Movie, produced by Dick Clark for the ABC network premiered 18 months later on February 11 1979 and, despite CBS airing Gone With The Wind the same night, was one of the highest rated made-for-television movies ever shown (it played theatrically on other parts of the world . in Japan it was called The Singer!).

Video: Elmo Hates Jews, Curses In Central Park, Is Captured And Loaded Into Ambulance

Sad news for Elmo fans today, as it was revealed that the Sesame Street star and international icon was driven away in an ambulance after making an anti-Semitic speech in New York City's Central Park over the weekend. This news will be devastating for those who had come to know and love Elmo as the lovable and loving red Muppet who preached values like kindness and viewing the world with child-like wonder to an audience of millions. 

Amateur videographers captured Elmo directing unwitting bystanders to read The International Jew by Henry Ford, a noted anti-Semite, and to avoid starting a business in New York because Jews will harrass you. Sad stuff from the same non-human lifeform who created Elmo's World.  

As it turns out, Elmo has been on a long downward spiral for the past several months, frequently yelling obscenties at passers-by and demanding they give him money for pictures.

Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey Review

Director: Constance Marks

Cast: Kevin Clash, Whoopi Goldberg, Frank Oz

Running time: 80 minutes

Certificate: U

Synopsis: Meet Kevin Clash, one of the world’s most popular but unrecognisable stars. For 25 years, he has played a character named Elmo on the most popular street in children’s TV…

Five years ago, who’d have known Jim Henson’s Muppets would return to win our hearts once again? With their big screen outing earlier this year, Kermit and Co proved they still have what it takes to make us laugh and go all gooey inside. The trick, of course, is the simple Muppets formula: they are never spiteful or mean-spirited. It’s pure, decent, and honest fun – great gags and lovable characters. It’s a refreshing change in an increasingly cynical world, and its little wonder fans worldwide have embraced them all over again. Long live the Muppets.

Now, only four months later,
