Via Deviant Art: So, Chudd and I are a couple of fellers that like cake. Well, any sweet pastry or bake good slathered in chocolate, ice cream, is pretty much okay by us; however today I found some cakes that I almost wouldn’t eat. Almost.

Check out these really great looking cakes by Australian creative Cakecrumbs! Cakecrumbs (aka Rhiannon) does a wonderful job of mixing art and baking to produce some really fun looking bake goods. She also has a website where you can see more of her great work. I’ve posted a small example of some of the more pop-culture related cakes, but go check out her site to see some really tasty looking stuff.

Tonk Tonk Toccta Robot Slaps!

Posted in Geek Art, Geekery, General on April 13th, 2014 by Mister Trog


Okay, so Slaps are sticker art. I know this now. I didn’t know it before, but know I know this, and I like it. My introduction to Slaps came via Wayne Wolfson (aka B. Wolfe) a sticker artist who started doing slaps when he came up with the idea for a retro looking robot called Tonk Tonk Toccta.ww-tonk Since creating Tonk, B. Wolf has created a bunch of original hand drawn stickers, printed on vinyl, which have traveled to such places as Australia, Serbia, and Brazil (Ótimo!), and many more! Check out his flickr page to see all the places Tonk Tonk Toccta Robot has been. You can find out more about B. Wolf and his slaps at his website, I’ve posted a few sample images below, but go check out the link above for the full gallery!

Via Geek Tyrant: Good afternoon El Moochadores (boa tarde em Português…)! There really isn’t enough gladiator comedy out there. We got Life of Brian and Mel Brooks’s History of the World and that’s about it. I think. Well anyways, now we Minimus! This funny short film, by Future Shorts has an almost Monty Python like feel to it that I really enjoyed. Check it out and hopefully in the future we’ll get to see more funny romps through world history!

Atomic Moo Comic Book Review of IT CAME!

Posted in Comic & Graphic Novels, General on April 9th, 2014 by Mister Trog


Ladies and gentlemen, you’re about to meet Grurk. He’s an indestructible robot from another planet and, in true b-movie form, he’s here to smash the 1950′s English country side in the wonderful graphic novel, It Came! Created by Dan Boultwood this hard bound collection of It Came comics is a funny and thrilling new graphic novel published by Titan Books. Here’s the synopsis:

1958. Driving through the British countryside, unthinkingly misogynistic space scientist, Dr. Boy Brett, and his companion, Doris Night, pop into a quaint village pub for a cheese ploughman’s…ItCame_5
But waiting for them outside is a most unwelcome visitor: Grurk, an indestructible, monosyllabic robot from outer space, on a mission to harvest the British Blitz spirit for energy!Pursuing Grurk in their Morris Minor, will Boy and Doris be able to save the British from a life without stiff upper lippedness, or will Her Majesty’s Kingdom be forever resigned to a life down in the mouth?

It Came was a treat. The illustration and lay out of the book is excellent. Boultwood has an unique illustration style that simplifies (in a good way!) yet engages the reader. He knows just how to capture the right moments of action and expressions for an exciting story about a mad alien robot. Y’know, our kind of story.ItCame_1 Layered on top of the amazing art work is some of the best humor in comics since Dead Pool. Nothing is taken too serious and the book is full of mock ads, intermissions, and title pages reminiscent of an 1950′s movie going experience. All you need is a box of pop corn and your set. Well, except then your buttery fingers might mess up an excellent graphic novel… Anyways, below I’ve posted a few more sample images from the graphic novel. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a link to purchase the novel on the Titan Books web site, but it is out in store now and it can be purchased online at Barnes & Nobles online store.

LARPs: The Series

Posted in Film & Animation, Geekery, General on April 9th, 2014 by Mister Trog

Larp's Title

Good morning El Moochadores! Wait, 10:40 am is still morning, right? Anyways, I was recently introduced to a funny, and extremely well produced, web series called LARPs! Or, LARPs: The Series to be more accurate.larps This scripted web series explores the world of larping (Live Action Role-playing) and the five friends who come together to act out a fantasy role-playing game. The whole thing was produced in Canada and was directed by Julian Stamboulieh. Here’s the synopsis:

Five twentysomething friends meet regularly to play in a LARP.Larp'sImageOne We follow these LARPers through their normal lives and see the parallels between the game and the real world. In roleplaying games, it’s not uncommon to see romance, power struggles, and epic confrontations–how does that affect the lives of its players once they take off their armour?

LARPs presents roleplaying as a normal hobby while acknowledging the sometimes eccentric nature of its players. Thousands of men and women roleplay around the globe–LARPs gives its audience a glimpse into their passion while still examining the realities of life outside the game.

The series stars Jonathan Silver as Author, Elizabeth Neale as Shane, Scott Humphrey as Will. More cast and crew information can be found at the LARPs website. Currently all 10 episodes of LARPs’s first season are on YouTube along with a “0″ episode that introduces the cast of characters. LARPs also has a very cool 6 page web-comic (Backstory!) written and illustrated by the talented Mia Goodwin. Below I’ve posted the first 3 episodes along with a sample page of the web-comic.

Cardboard Iron Man!

Posted in Cosplay, Film & Animation, General on April 4th, 2014 by Mister Trog


Via Geekology: Does the sound of cardboard rubbing against itself bug anyone else? It’s one of the worst sounds in the world and granted this full size Iron Man suit made of cardboard looks cool, but – ye gods! Who ever struts around in that thing will drive the world mad!download Also, don’t smoke too close to the guy. Anyways, check out this amazing bit of cosplay by cardboard artist (yup, that’s a thing) Kai-Xiang Xhong. Along with a few images of the suit there’s a youtube video from the Stan Winston School that shows the suit and many more of Kai-Xiang Xhong’s sculptures! God! Just thinking about cardboard rubbing together is wigging me out… ehhk!
