Found on the Internet: Skeletor & Skeletor play with their Skeletors.

That’s Brian Dobson, who voiced Skeletor in the 2002 CN Masters of the Universe series, and the great Alan Oppenheimer, who voiced Skeletor (and about half of the rest of the characters) in the original 80s series.  They’re playing with figures of the characters they helped make famous (infamous?).

Found On the Internet: Etheria Q

Youtuber RafiSG put together this little stop-motion mesh of Masters of the Universe/Princess of Power characters and Avenue Q, the musical play that takes a different look at Millenials and Sesame Street.  The figures are from Mattel’s Masters of the Universe Classics line, and it’s just more proof of how incredibly awesome the line is.

…and the award for Least Thought Out Licensed Product goes to…

DC Comics!

DC Comics!

For me, it’s the cup-holder clenched fists that turn this from innocent to kinda creepy.  Maybe… maybe… if they hadn’t chosen a character that has faced horrible, creepy allegations for almost 60 years–Nope, it’d still be a kid sitting on the likeness of a super-dude’s crotch.

I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with the product itself.  If you want–or already have–one, I’m not making any judgements at all.  It’s probably more of a comment on me that the first place my mind went when I saw this was straight in the gutter.

Found On the Internet: Beetlejuice Minecraft Roller Coaster

I don’t care if you’ve never played Minecraft, or if you’ve never seen Beetlejuice.  You should watch this video.  It’s an amazing tribute to the movie, made in a fantastic and creative game.  And it’s tripping balls.

Of course, if you have played Minecraft, you’ll recognize this as a colossal example of Holy-Fucking-Shit-What-Have-I-Done-With-My-Life Syndrome.  Kudos to the creators for making something awesome, though.  Y’knowhaddImean?

Found on the Internet: The Walking Dead Intro (circa 1995)

“In an alternate universe, The Walking Dead aired in 1995. Here’s the intro”

Youtube user and goestoeleven posted this video yesterday.  It made its way to the front page of Reddit today.  And now it’s here.  Hooray!  I think they did a pretty slick job on this re-cut, though they might have laid on the messed up VHS tracking a bit too thick.

The music is from purple-planet.com

Found On The Internet: Community on Beetlejuice.

Okay.  I want to make a post about my impressions of Season 3 so far.  I want to talk about how it’s just as good as the previous seasons, for the most part.  How each season has taken 3 episodes to set the stage, and then have the 4th episode shine brightly.  I want to talk about how this season’s Hallowe’en episode was a big disappointment, especially since the funniest line (“Teach me to read!”) was in the trailer.  I want to burst into “Kiss from a Rose” and fix some air conditioners with Black Hitler and an Astronaut making Panninis.

But I’m only on my lunch break, and I just saw this posted on Reddit, and I can’t help but share it.  So all those other thoughts will have to wait.

Watch the window as Beetlejuice’s 3rd mention on the show takes place.

I love this show. Please don’t cancel it NBC. Hell, aside from Parks and Rec, it’s the only show on TV I’m watching when it airs.

Found On the Internet: Li’l Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction’s Facebook page shared this today.  I enjoyed it.

Not surprisingly, the 265 comments or so were largely full of people pissing, moaning and crying.  Wah wah… the kids aren’t swearing.  Wah This is inappropriate!  Wah wah John Travolta is white!  wah!  Shoulda done DNS scene! Wah.  Won’t someone think of the children!?! Wah wah wah One of my favourite movies ruined! Fucking wah.

The best three that I saw in my quick glance:

I was hoping they’d shoot Marvin in the face.”  – James Partington

Wrong scene, asshat.

“this is terrible and a disgrace to pulp fiction. vincent vega isnt not a little mexican. get the races right before you make a li’l anything” – Scott Schober

That’s some really choice racism, sir.

“I don’t think Jules was mexican but ok.” – Morgan Shaffer

Also choice racism.  Even funnier to me is that you’re so upset about this detail change you felt the need to comment on it… without realizing that the character Jules was indeed played by a young man of African decent.  How do you get so worked up about one detail, when you don’t even know the character’s fucking name?
