Over the last few years, Kickstarter has become one of the best resources for comic fans looking to explore the world outside the big two publishers (Marvel and DC), so it’s no surprise that I found our newest spotlight project while perusing the site. Terrance Grace, a veteran in the film and television industry, is in the final weeks of a campaign to publish his very first full length graphic novel, ‘The Locksmith,’ a scifi noir story that reaches into the past, present, and future.
In real-life hipster Ariel, Traci Hines, marries her model Prince Eric in the completely perfect staged and styled The Little Mermaid wedding photo shoot! If you are a hardcore Little Mermaid fan, much like myself, and into the whole “life do us part,” thing then you will totally be head over heels for this hipster Disney inspired wedding. Here is what the team behind this fairy tale inspired shoot had to say about the project:
Oh, geek love. We always hear about or it see it in the movies where the geeky guy needs to win over the girl of his dreams. Or where the group of geek guys are lamenting over their pathetic love lives. There’s always an article or book pointed at the guys giving them advice on how to break out of their shell and meet someone. But what about the ladies?! We’re not just prizes to be won! Just like an adventurer, we aren’t going to wait around for that special someone to fall into our laps, we’re going to go out and find that treasure. Thanks to Hope Nicholson, she’s trying to bring an anthology to our tables through Kickstarter that’s all about The Secret Loves of Geek Girls and will hopefully serve as a guide for when life has gotten a girl down or she needs a little help. I should also point out that this guide will be so much better than any stupid, He’s Just Not That Into You type of book.
Black Mirror is coming back to remind us how much worse things in the digital age can get. Charlie Brooker’s series premiered in 2014 on British Television and then became an international hit. It was announced that the series would come to Netflix with 12 new episodes, 6 of them will be available this month.
I am a huge Scooby-Doo fan. I’ve loved the show ever since I was little and watched the episodes on Cartoon Network and Boomerang. Hell, I still have my awesome glow-in-the-dark Scooby-Doo figure that I got out of some kid’s meal. So when I was browsing Scooby related art on the website deviantART and found the picture below, I fell in love.
Fellow Hollywood starlets, take notes! During an interview where she discusses her up and coming role in Camp X-Ray, Kristen Stewart let share her thoughts on the whole disassociation with the word “feminist” in Hollywood. Check out what the indie actress turned Bella Swan turned back indie actress had to say below:
Every day we spend hours on the internet searching, shopping, reading, writing, reviewing, and communicating with people around the world. We put our lives on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, and establish friendships, and sometimes romantic relationships, with people we have never met in person. We trust total strangers on sites like Yelp, Amazon, Rotten Tomatoes, and even those social networking sites, to recommend restaurants, contractors, products, and countless other things we purchase, site unseen. But what makes us trust certain people on the internet? Why do we allow total strangers to make recommendations when we have no idea who is really sitting behind that text online? That is the premise of a new documentary, #ff the Film, by filmmaker Erin Faulk. I was able to sit down with her last week to discuss the film, social media, and one heck of a road trip.
Several months ago I came across a Kickstarter campaign for a web series called Squaresville. It was about two teenage girls who were stuck in their weird little town, due to the fact that they were teenagers, and therefore couldn’t really do anything about it. Just from the trailer I could tell that this was a series that not only looked good, but sounded good – it was witty, offbeat, and charming – and these were characters that a lot of people, especially teenagers, would be able to relate to.
Are you actively trying to become a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. or the Avengers? Since I highly doubt anyone reading this has any type of super power, I’m guessing it might be a little easier to join S.H.I.E.L.D., especially since Director Coulson could use some new members. Well you are in luck! The Marvel Experience: The World’s First Hyper-Reality Tour has just announced their first batch of tour dates and locations!
