Let’s see, what have I been up to lately? I visited the set of NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior” after touring Universal Studios Hollywood’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I also sat down with T-Pain, Disney Channel’s Karan Brar, and the cast of “X-Men: Apocalypse,” among others (videos below). I also dropped by the set of “Access […]

I have many fond memories of covering Comic-Con in years past. When you cover the year’s (arguably) biggest pop culture event four years in a row (and for three different outlets), the five days spent in San Diego become a sort of annual working vacation, emphasis on the “working” part. Each year had been a whirl […]

Whether you like it or not (ahem, Alan Moore), the Watchmen prequel is a reality. And decidedly sans the blessing of Alan Moore. This week, DC released the cover art of one of the seven prequel miniseries, Before Watchmen, which features Ozymandias meditating/levitating. News of the prequel is sparking those age-old debates about fidelity to […]

Since my brief working vacation in Hawaii (see my twitterfeed for select snaps!), I’ve traded in surfing on a pink funboard rental for surfing the web. Stretch out your index finger; here are some gems I think are worth checking out. The most played game of this year may or may not be the game […]

Unfortunately, I don’t think this would fit on my desk but for $39.99 (on sale; without shipping), it’s got to FIT on some Star Wars superfan’s office space. 4 port unpowered USB 2.0 Hub AND officially licensed by Lucasfilm. Available at ThinkGeek.
I know many of you are probably bummed at Call of Duty: Elite being down. Hopefully, you’ll get a couple of chuckles (or 25) like I did from this COD MW3 live action trailer, featuring Sam Worthington, Jonah Hill and Dwight Howard.
I think it’s safe to say I’ve now effectively recovered from Comic-Con 2011. This year was my third in a row covering the Con and, as always, it was a frenzy of press lines, Mario Vaders, soft pretzels and the occasional fancy sushi at Nobu (because it’s close to the convention center and I heard […]
