Not News from Not News Guys

Good morning El Moochadores and fellow Brethren Moo! For this Morning’s Moo we got a great mix of new Lego stuff, indie gear, and guitar strumming karate. Very cool.

Lego’s SHIELD Helicarrier Set!

10359322_10152709002903403_1181821355705929499_n

I first read about this on The Wall Street Journal, but many of the images, and the video below, I found on the website Laughing Squid. Anyways… Lego just announced that it will be releasing a new, Helicarrier play set and Avengers mini-figures! According to the Wall Street Journal, the set will have 2,996 pieces and will retail for about $349.99. The set will also come with twelve “micro-figures” (the little Lego dudes) including Nick Fury, Hawkeye, Captain America, Iron Man and eight agents of SHEILD. Okay. So, I need new eye glasses and dental work, but I guess that shit’ll have to wait.

Check out a promo video below along with some sample images of the set.

Finally… Flaming Karate Guitar

GuitarGuy

Also via Laughing Squid: Today, bad stuff may happen. However, if (and when) life get’s you down, just return to this post and watch a man, in a karate gi, chop through flaming boards (with his bare hands) while playing the guitar!!! Watch that, and just know that things will get better because… Somewhere out there, there is a man, in a karate gi, chopping through flaming boards (with his bare hands) while playing the guitar!!!

Have a great day El Moochadores!

The Morning Moo!

Ghostbusters-3-News

Not News from Not News Guys…

Brand new day. Brand new Morning Moo. Today, I thought we’d follow some of the ‘news’ about upcoming films, trailers, and televisions shows. Then I thought we should go look at some classy porn. The good stuff. Then we should nap, eat lunch, and then go for a walk on a sunny San Diego beach. ahhhh… San Diego. But first, the news!!!

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp!

WetHotSum

The god – I don’t believe in – bless you Netflix! Holy shit, Netflix (the same beautiful people who brought back Arrested Development) are bring back Wet Hot American Summer!

ghostbusters-logo-title-black

Via Geeks of Doom: News for Paul Feig’s new Ghostbusters film has been released! The new film has all female leads and will star Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones! In a “tweet,” Feig also gave away a release date: July 22nd, 2016! However; on the Geeks of Doom post there was that worrying line, “if current negotiations are finalized.” Finalize ‘em dammit!

Okay El Moochadores, I’m off to seek a higher plain of enlightenment, and a bagel. I’m very close, some set backs aside, to finishing the next Moocast, and hopefully I’ll have it online soon!

Not Really Current News from Not News Guys…

G’morning El Moochadores! Okay, I have to run. Not literally. Well, maybe. I’m really late for work, and (even though I really hate my job) I don’t want to be homeless. Well, okay. Wearing an old army jacket, and circling the shore on a rusted out beach cruiser does, kind of, sound cool. But I also like regular showers and not spending the weekend in county jail… so, I’m going to work. However; I’ve done pretty good with keeping up on the ‘morning moo’ so check out this quick post of Conan O’brien’s “interview” with Archer.

Enjoy!

The Morning Moo…

Some What Current News from Not News Guys…

Good Morning El Moochadores! I’m actually glad that I started doing the Morning Moo again. It helps take the sting out of waking up and facing another day. Alright, enough with the good cheer. So today we got San Diego Comic Con news, Star War fan redesigns, and they fucked up King Tut!

Here we go…

Irreversibly Damaged

tutankhamun

Via i09: It’s been recently reported that the blue and gold braided beard on King Tut’s (Tutankhamun… but we all knew that) burial mask was knocked off during an attempt to clean the artifact, and then glued back on, damaging the mask further. According to an article by theTut_Damage Associated Press, the beard was then “hastily” glued back on to the 3,300 year old artifact with epoxy. In the article conservators at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo were quoted as saying:

Unfortunately he used a very irreversible material – epoxy has a very high property for attaching and is used on metal or stone but I think it wasn’t suitable for an outstanding object like Tutankhamun’s golden mask… The mask should have been taken to the conservation lab but they were in a rush to get it displayed quickly again and used this quick drying, irreversible material.

D’oh! According to the AP article, additional damage was done to the mask by a museum work when they tried to use a spatula to remove some of the epoxy and ended up scratching the mask. D’oh! D’oh!

Brainstorm: Fan Designs for Darth Vader and The Storm troopers!

Storm Trooper ReDo

Is Storm Trooper one word or two? Anyways, Via The Facebook: Facebook group, Brainstorm has challenged followers to redesign Darth Vader and the Storm Trooper (I’m going with two words. I’m not looking it up. I’m just making the call and going with it.)! Click the link above to see some fantastic ideas from talented fans of the films!

Staying? Going? Where Will Comic Con be in 2017?

comic-con-2015-pic-630x420

Okay, So we love going to San Diego Comic Con. Not just the “royal we” (as in “all of us”), but us – the Atomic Moo guys. We go every year, and we have a great time (despite the celebrity gawkers, rude security staff, and religious nut jobs blocking up 5th avenue…), but for years now there’s been a question of whether or not Comic Con will stay in San Diego, because the event has become too large for the actual convention center. Recently, Comics Alliance published an article that explores the question of where might SDCC go, if it chooses not to renew it’s contract with San Diego in 2016. According to the article, the cities of Anaheim and Los Angeles are both want to be the new home of the convention. The article goes on to say that Anaheim “offers the largest exhibit hall space in Southern California at 815,000 square feet (almost 200,000 more than the 615,700 sq ft at the San Diego Convention Center). In addition, they’ve begun construction on an additional 200,000 sq ft to the convention center, and recently launched a $2.5 million upgrade to their Wi-Fi infrastructure.” In the article, David Glanzer, a Comic Con spokesperson was quoted saying:

The proposals we’ve received are pretty amazing. It’s not an easy decision.

Okay, so I hope the articles final statements that the con probably won’t leave San Diego are correct. I hope. However, we’re talking about a lot of money here. And, as far as “non-profits” go, Comic Con rakes in the cash (and they love their cash), and a larger venue means… more cash! So, I really hope article’s like this one get the city of San Diego to wake up and do more to keep the con in San Diego. According to an article from San Diego’s Union Tribune, in 2010 the city earned an estimated $163 million! That was 5 years ago for a four day event! There’s been more people and more attention to the con since then! Don’t fuck this San Diego!

Alright, El Moochadores. I’ve got to get to work on… other stuff. So, keep coming back to the site for geek creative stuff, and (it’s getting close) possibly a new Moocast!

Later!

The Morning Moo…

Good morning El Moochadores! Okay, I slept in a little late, and this more like a “late-morning moo” now, but that’s okay!

Elemental Evil Returns to D&D!

756106

As I write this, I’m thinking of our good buddy, D20, who for the last few years has been trying (mostly in vain) to get us to play Neverwinter Nights. So, Geeks of Doom reported that the free to play MMORPG, Neverwinter, will be adding “a new downloadable module from Cryptic Studios and Perfect World Entertainment. The new module will include all sorts of new player classes and raises the level cap to 70. The article also reports that Neverwinter may be coming to Xbox soon. Also, expect to see new modules for Wizard of the Coast games like Prince of Apocalypse, new miniature board games, and maybe more. Check out more information about the expansion modules at the Geeks of Doom article!

Windows 10 for Free!

windows10-logo-100466239-large

Okay, calm down folks. This is Microsoft we’re talking about here. There aint noth’n free. I’m sure somewhere in here is a faustian bargain, that’ll sign over our bank accounts, privacy, and souls. However; for those of you a little less cynical that I am, The website arstechnica reported that Microsoft will be offering free versions of Windows 10 to Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 users for one year! The official announcement was made during the Microsoft Preview Event by Terry Myerson who said,

Once a device is upgraded to Windows 10, we’ll be keeping it current for the supported lifetime of the device… With Windows 10, we think of Windows as a service… The question ‘what version are you running’ will cease to make sense.

According to the arstechnica article, this is the first time Microsoft has offered an OS for free. For more information you can check out the arstechnica article here.

Okay, El Moochadores, this is my day off, so we’ll have some actual geek creative stuff to post about later today, and later on this week we’ll have book reviews and maybe (MAYBE!) and brand new Moocast.

‘Later!

Good morning El Moochadores! I just woke up and I’m still feeling a little groggy. Actually, waking up was probably the worst mistake I could have made today, so maybe things will be all right! Anyways…

New AFT Shirt!

AFTShirt

That’s right. You come on to our podcast, and we’ll promote your stuff for ever. So, check out ATF’s (Action Figure Therapy) new t-shirt, Jungle “Typhoon Of Excellence”! The shirt sports a cool illustration and sales for a meager 18.99. By buying the shirt you’re helping support a great website and youtube channel.

Blizzard Gives Orc Statue to Ten Year Players!

WoW_10year_Orc_01

Via Geek.com; If you’ve played World of Warcraft since its launch in 2004, then you’re probably going to be receiving this very cool Orc statue! You’ve also probably spent a little over 1800.00 on a video game, which may have done better in a money market account (or IRA), but then you wouldn’t have the azure proto drake, or Amani battle bear… Tough call. So, anywhat, Blizzard is still celebrating their ten years of existence, and as part of the celebration they are sending the statue to any player who has had a World of Warcraft account since November, 2004 (US), with the stipulation that you still have to be a subscriber. According to the geek.com article, this statue is a miniature version of the large statue at the Blizzard headquarters in Irvine California. Which, I can verify, because I’ve seen the real one, and it’s awesome! Sorry, I had to put that in there. Still, “gratz” to Blizzard, and it’s loyal players.

“Weird Al” Yankovic – The Mandatory World Tour

Via Laughing Squid: Weird Al Yankovic has a new world tour! Dates have just been announced and Yankovic will be touring all through the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia and New Zealand. Check out the video below, and link above, for more information!

The Morning Moo…

Some What Current News from Not News Guys…

Good Morning El Moochadores! One of the things I use to hate about doing the Morning Moo was that on busy work days it was often the only post I could get done for the site. So all I would see at the end of a work week is a long line of “Morning Moo’s” on the blog.

Warmest Year On Record!

iStock_000008972570_Small

Ye Gods, but I fucking love science. I also love the site IFLScience.com. Spell it out for your self folks… Anyways, this report isn’t so much creative as it is geeky, but check out this report from NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies that show’s 2014 was the hottest year since record keeping began in 1880. Very interesting, and worth a listen while you idle your car in bumper to bumper traffic while go to work this morning, you Earth murdering maniac!

Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen Won’t Return For X-Men: Apocalypse!

720x405-489817659

Via Rolling Stone; It looks like we won’t be getting to see the older, wiser, better looking (they probably think so), versions of Professor X and Magneto in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. According to the article on Rollingstone.com, Patrick Steward was on Larry King Now and said,

I was learning quite a lot more about it last night, and it is going to be looking very much at the earlier lives of all our characters. And so I don’t think we’ll be making an appearance – Nor Sir Ian McKellen, either.

Damn.

ATROPA: Awesome Sci-fi Short!

Finally, check out this great short film by Eli Sasich called Atropa! The short film was written by Clay Tolbert and stars Anthony Bonaventura, Jeannie Bolet, David M. Edelstien, Ben Kliewer, and Chris Voss. It’s the futuristic story of “An Off-World Detective investigates the missing research vessel ATROPA.”

Enjoy!
