I draw, I paint, I sculp. I create, I modify, I destroy. But something is born in all the cases.
These are the words of amazingly talented and twisted artist Mari Kasurienen. You may or may not have seen her off-beat My Little Pony adaptations, if you haven’t though I highly suggest you check them out. I would have killed for these when I was a kid. Who am I kidding? I would kill for them now.
Happy Holidays from your favorite Caped Crusader!
Does that come with a receipt Batman?
Golden Age Batman is a class act all the way.

Right now I am in love with the work of Rosemary Travale, her stuff has a certain child-like charm that really appeals. That and anybody that can use watercolors better than I can (see: Almost Everyone), is alright in my book. Check out her Deviant Art, where she has been posting a Villain a Day for the month of October. Some of her picks have been on the brilliant side, and I have been checking back often to see who else is on the list. It is fun to see some of the people she cutesied up (See: Skeletor Below).
Installment 2 of the Happy Sunday adventure!
Do I really need to say anything else? I am sure if you are reading this AFTER watching the video you are thinking something like, “What the hell did I just watch.” Or perhaps the more popular, “That was the coolest effin thing I have ever seen in my entire life!!!!!1!!”
This is John McCaine congratulating Sarah Palin on her “great” performance at the VP debates. Yes that really is the sound he made.
Behind the cut see a comparison with an actual Batman v. Penguin debate.
Ok, I admit, I truly love the Batman Universe, so I was pretty much ecstatic when I saw Lego Batman was coming out. I had played around with Lego Starwars some, and had fun with that, so I knew it was going to be entertaining.
It is hard to be Batman when all of your rouges gallery break free of Arkham simultaneously. Never fear however as you have the tools and the talent to put them all back where they belong. Plus you can have fun along the way. The story is pretty straight forward, but solid Batman fare none the less. There are some funny moments, but you can tell most the slapstick humor is aimed at the games younger audience.
You get to play with a veritable plethora of classic and new batman heroes, plus a wide assortment of baddies, making the play more in depth and engrossing. There is plenty of replay value, as to get all of the items hidden in the game you will have to replay levels multiple times, tactfully choosing which characters will be necessary to traverse the many puzzles and obstacles along the way.
It is also great to play in cooperative mode, as the designers did a good job splitting up the work between any of the two characters you and your buddy choose to play as.
On the negative side, if you don’t play with a friend, you will travel with one of the dumbest AIs ever. He follows you around like a puppy falling off cliffs and occasionally causing you to do the same. Some of the mechanics of using the playable characters when up in high places can be frustrating as well, falling off and respawning in a spot where you can’t help but fall off yet again, loosing precious loot.
Honestly though the advantages outweigh the disadvantages by a great deal, it is fun and addictive to play, and will keep you busy for quite awhile. If you have any affection for the characters, seeing them cutsied up will just add to the fun.

…Not really, but these fan-made teaser posters by Josh McMahon are pretty rad none the less. I don’t have much of an opinion on his casting of Kristin Bell (though I think her voice on Gossip Girl gets grating), as Harley Quinn, but I would be effin thrilled at the prospect of the character appearing in the upcoming Dark Knight sequel. As a Doctor Who fan I am in love with the fact that Josh has cast David Tennant as The Riddler. The fact that David is complete eyecandy doesn’t hurt any. Also see Marion Cotillard (of La Vie en Rose fame) as The Catwoman.
And Yes, Unicorns like boys in glasses too.
