Brooklyn Geekfest: Gaming & Cosplay in Brooklyn, NY
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Brooklyn Geekfest 18

It’s a strange occurrence to walk through a trendy Brooklyn neighborhood and see people dressed in costume walking in and out of a hotel… in Spring! Last Saturday, the Best Western Gregory Hotel in Bay Ridge Brooklyn, hosted the first annual Brooklyn Geekfest, brought to you by Gotham City Games. The miniature comic-con style festival featured two rooms, one dedicated entirely to gaming, featuring multiple consoles, and ongoing tournaments throughout the day. The other was filled with vendors selling toys, homemade video art, and of course video game accoutrement. As is now tradition with any geek-themed convention, there was a cosplay contest for both adults and children.

Check out our interview with host and the owner of Gotham City Games, Ralph Pugliese, and our image gallery below.

So, Are You Worthy of Wielding Thor’s Hammer? (Video)
Bombardier Jedi   |  @   |  

Thor: The Dark World starring Chris Hemsworth

A group of enthusiastic pranksters going by the name of Trollstation out of the UK decided to find out just who thinks they are worthy of the power of the Mighty Thor. Just in time for this week’s U.S. release of Avengers: Age of Ultron (the film has been out a week in the UK), the prank basically entailed someone using some heavy duty adhesive to glue a replica of Mjolnir, the famed weapon of Thor, to some concrete in a public square. Passersby then tried to determine their worthiness by attempting to lift the “magic” hammer.

The concept is based on the famous inscription from the Marvel comics stating “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.” Of course the hammer now mentions that if he OR she be worthy, and in the video, plenty of women gave the challenge a try themselves.

From the looks of it, we puny mortals should probably just leave the heavy lifting to the Asgardians. That and apparently wearing a jacket seems to have an effect on our worthiness. Check out the video here below.

The Movie God   |  @   |  

H.P. Mendoza's "In Ten Years"

Geeky music videos are nothing new, but they very rarely get old. Especially when they’re as catchy as this.

Back in 2004, H.P. Mendoza released his first album, titled Everything is Pop. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of its release, here’s the music video for the album’s geek anthem, “In Ten Years.” It’s a video that’s sure to spark great feelings of nostalgia in most of you, with nods to old video games, movies, technology, and even fashion…while anyone younger might find themselves staring at the computer rather confused at days gone by.

Box Of Dread: The October Edition

Box of Dread Ad

Every month I patiently await my happy little Box of Dread from Dread Central. The boxes, which are filled with all sorts of horror regalia, come delivered monthly to your door. In the past few months, I received DVDs, toys, stickers, posters, buttons, etc. Not every box will contain the exact same things (some do), but will have similar themes.

This month happens to be October, which for horror fans means Christmas has come early and Halloween is here. It also means to return to television for arguably horror’s most popular show, AMC’s The Walking Dead.

Continue reading for more on this month’s Box of Dread, and to see some images and unboxing videos.

Darth Vader in Ukraine

The Ukrainian Internet Party is pushing for reform in the upcoming parliamentary elections, and who better than the Dark Lord of The Sith, Darth Vader, from Star Wars to get things done!

The former Jedi and evil henchmen for the Galactic Empire (or at least someone dressed like him) is running in the upcoming parliamentary elections there as a legitimate candidate. Vader even has an ad campaign making rounds on the internet this week featuring beautiful fields (not unlike Naboo), a horse, and even a traditional Russian instrument being played by Lord Vader to a familiar stirring tune.

Check out the ad campaign videos here below.

A Look At The ‘Roger Rabbit’ Voiced By Pee-Wee Herman You Didn’t Know Existed (Video)
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Early Who Framed Roger Rabbit Image

As you know, a lot goes into making a movie. Many of them are developed for many years, seeing various writers and directors and other talent come and go as the best strategy for making the movie is figured out.

1988’s Who Framed Roger Rabbit was no different. Directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring the late Bob Hoskins, the movie would go on to become an unforgettable fusion of live-action film noir and cartoon comedy. But Disney was trying to make the movie happen years before that destiny was realized. They acquired the rights to the Gary K. Wolf novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? not long after its publication in 1981, and at one point in 1983 had an adaptation in the works with Paul Reubens as Roger Rabbit (around the time he was becoming known as Pee-Wee Herman).

You can see a behind-the-scenes video of this very different version of Roger Rabbit below.
