    Oh, Back to the Future. It was because of you that during the run-up to the revealing of the Segway, I thought it was going to be a hoverboard. It was because of you that I was so bitterly disappointed. But your uppance has come! Your most precious wooden prop will be mine — for the paltry cost of only $30,000. No, it doesn’t hover, but it’s in excellent condition. I… Read More

    I don’t know what else to say about this other than this is completely awesome. This song represents Top Gun, and Top Gun represents America. Out of control, but deadly.

    Knight Rider making a comeback Transformers style, wtf?!

    If you haven’t already realized this I loves me some comic bookish TV shows and movies. My previous Transformers and Iron Man coverage should make that quite apparent. Although, I didn’t post the Iron Man trailer because everyone else at CG thought it was lame, but here’s the link in case you missed it. Man, this coffee is making me all sorts of antsy (Note to self: no… Read More
