All Points Bulletin: Maybe Prometheus is Keeping People From the TheatersJune 24, 2012
If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on an APB drop us a line via email or Twitter.
- New Cowboy Bebop . . . Figures
I’m rather impressed that the two figures Play Arts Kai are leading with doesn’t include Faye. I will definitely be on the look out for Spike and if he can really stand in that kicking position they show in the photos that would be cool. Not sure about the face, doesn’t really look like him. Now I’m conflicted about the figure!
- The Ultimate Troll?
If you are a fan of The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon, then you may have heard the rumor that the show is being canceled. Turns out it may be an elaborate plot by a really angry Spider-Man fan.
- Game of Thrones Attack Ads
There is a lot of politics in Game of Thrones. There is also a lot of political ads going on right now for the upcoming U.S. Presidential election. So naturally these two things had to meet. No, sadly our presidential hopefuls are not using GoT in their own ads. Instead the war in Westeros is being wagged through SuperPac television ads now!
- Guess I Won’t See You at the Movies
Movie attendance just gets worse and worse and The Avengers stands as an anomaly. I personally love going to the movies but have to pick and choose carefully because ticket princes in NYC are $13-15 for non-3D showings! But apparently even the relatively lower prices elsewhere don’t encourage people.
- 8-Bit in 8-Minutes
Okay, fine, it is just under 8-minutes. This is a quick little documentary from PBS about the evolving artform of 8-bit art be it paintings or music.
- Boldly Go Back to Where No Man Had Gone Before
I nice little reinterpretation of the opening to Star Trek: The Animated Series for all you old Trekkers.
- Here Be Dragons
Chaos Theater look at the Dragon Age games. As always the have nothing but praise for the first and a whole lot less love for the second. Also since Chris finally played all the Mass Effect games the inevitable topic of the ending of the third game had to come up. I myself am interested in playing the first game but the second seems to be so uncooked as not to be worth it unless it is part of a bundle with the first.
- Song of Lasers and Swords
A video podcast with an interview with George R. R. Martin. He talks about Boba Fett syndrome, shipping, Ant-Man and even Wild Cards. They also interview the author of Game of Thrones and Philosophy but I am sure you don’t care anywhere as much about that.
- Prometheus Gave Man Fire and Man Was Less Generous in Return
Two stern warnings to keep you away from Prometheus just in case you wanted to see it.
- Type-Moon Roundup
- Have Lunch with the “Best” Dad Ever: I just like Fate/Zero cafe posts to see what meals they attach to what characters.
- Mix and Match Gone Horribly Wrong: Those are some strange pairings.
- So Many Figures. So Little Money: Will get also get Rider’s Chariot?
- The Kuonji Mansion Witch Project: A solid interview about Mahou Tsukai no Yoru.
- Rider to Saber’s Three: The only way to play chess!
This person does amazing A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) fan-art. This picture I’m posting is full of spoilers from the books so be aware.
