<![CDATA[Play it now: The Glorkian Warrior]]>

Several years ago, cartoonist James Kochalka doodled a picture of an alien on a piece of paper. Now the Glorkian Warrior is the star of two graphic novels as well as a new video game created by Pixeljam, where the three-eyed hero must defend an asteroid with the help of his sidekick Super Backpack, a sentient knapsack who is both weapon and friend.

<![CDATA[This dancer in a light suit is totally breaking reality]]>

Damn. This video of a dancer in a light suit is like staring into a future that us humans chained to the present aren't supposed to see. The dancing is fun to watch, of course, but there's something about that black and white light up suit moving in those ways that is just jarring and completely warps my view of reality.

Todd Kenreck is the producer of the Cosplay Boom video series, and in the most recent episode, the show went to Todd’s hometown of Portland to check out the city’s cosplay scene.

As you might expect given Portland’s culture of individuality, cosplay is a natural fit. The video even features an appearance of the Real Nerd Guy from Portlandia.

Watch it after the break…

Film editor Jacob T. Swinney put together this interesting edit showing 55 movies side-by-side, putting each film's first scene right next to the final scene. Sometimes you get a story that comes completely full circle, sometimes you get a finished story with coherent imaging and other times you get something else.

<![CDATA[Harvey Birdman Cosplayer Becomes BIRDMAN in New Parody]]>

I never watched Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, but I definitely watched the Birdman cartoon series from the 1960s. Both make an appearance in this new video from YouTuber OnlyLeigh, who has created an animated parody video of a Harvey Birdman cosplayer who has an inner monologue similar to Michael Keaton's character in the Oscar-winning film Birdman. It's a really obvious concept, but I actually haven't seen it done yet, so they get points for being first out of the gate with it.

<![CDATA[Haunting and Atmospheric Short Film - LINE SIGNAL]]>

Line Signal is an amazing and haunting short film about a woman who regularly goes for a run in the woods as strange and bizarre things starting to happen to her. She is seemingly being preyed upon by a misty fog, and along the way she comes across some unusual items. As this is all happening, some personal aspects of her life are coming together, and her communication with the outside world through her cell phone is being cut off.

The short was directed by John Panton, and I especially loved the atmospheric vibe of this short, as it gives off an eerie and unsettling feeling. This is a short not to be missed. I'll be looking forward to seeing what the director does next.

<![CDATA[Trippy, Fun Animated Short Film - LOST CUBERT]]>

"Lost Cubert" is a fascinating animated short film that has a really strange and fun vibe to it. The short has a slick 2D and 3D animation mixture, and the way that it all flows together and moves is really cool. Here's a story summary:

Cubert’s life is determined by work. Endless repetitions of the same tasks, dull routines, a perfect construction of monotony. Suddenly he is wrenched out of his daily grind and is confronted with a seemingly inescapable system. His quest for an exit leads him deep into a labyrinth of monotony – and to the bounds of his sanity.

I think the people who end up watching this are really going to enjoy it, so make sure to take the time to check it out when you can.

<![CDATA[A Happy Story That Ends With An Idiot Doing Idiot Things]]>
Every so often you come across a card that has some special meaning to you, it can be the first card you ever pulled or a player that you met or even a card that reminds you of something from your childhood.

My nephew, who is 8 years old, has had a tough life. Without going in to detail my brother-in-law has made some bad decisions over the years so in my nephew’s short life we have had guardianship for a little over 4 years off and on including the past couple of months. Like any child he misses his father, who lives in Seattle, and his father has promised to take him to a Macklemore concert when they are back together. For my nephew Macklemore equals his father’s love.

When the 2015 Topps checklist came out and I saw that Macklemore was included in the First Pitch insert I knew I had to get one for my nephew the first day it came out. A card that cost less than $2 means the world to my nephew and that makes it priceless. A simple piece of cardboard put such a huge smile on his face, he brought the card to school to show all of his friends and for the first couple of days it never left his sight. He may never get to see Macklemore with his father but at least for now this card brought him closer to the day he will be back with his dad.



UPDATE: Since I originally wrote this post (the end of February) my nephew returned to his dad in Seattle last week and sadly two days ago someone broke in to their house and among the things that they took was the box my nephew kept all of his cards in and while he was upset about the loss he was in tears about losing the Macklemore card. I just do not understand why people would steal a child’s box, it had kid’s stickers all over the outside, no matter what is inside.

I have another card on the way already that we will send him for his birthday and I am planning on something special to cheer him up.

<![CDATA[COP CAR Video Review - Sundance 2015]]>

Kevin Bacon's Cop Car was one of the highlights at Sundance this year. It was a film that we all enjoyed, but it wasn't without its problems. Here is our video review in which we discuss this traumatic thriller that involves two young boys who come across a police cruiser and take it for a joy ride. In his review, Byran said,

"Cop Car takes a seemingly simple concept and makes it enthralling. Without a whole lot of blood, gore, or jump scares, it manages to make you scared and tense and still get a laugh in every now and then. It builds the intensity well, too, starting with two kids just walking in a field talking about kid stuff, and ending with a deadly standoff between two of the film's antagonists with the kids in the middle." 

Check out our video review below:

One of my friends shared this brief animated gif on Facebook called "Spider-Man in Kansas," and it made me laugh. I had to share it with the rest of you, so you can enjoy the hilarity of seeing what it would be like for Spider-Man if he wasn't fighting crime in a big city. I'm not sure who created it, but it was posted by Reddit user xsited1.  Updated with full video thanks to the man who created it David Stodolny.
