Slightly Misplaced Comic Book Heroes Case File #58: Baby Wildebeest

They grow up so fast.
They grow up so fast.

Babies are many things.  They can be cute, gooey, smelly, and the apple of their parents’ eyes.  They also tend to be fragile.  Babies are the things that we may want to protect the most in any given situation.

So, what if the baby in question actually somehow becomes a superhero?  To answer that question, we come to Baby Wildebeest.

Bold Predictions: 2016 Edition- Watson’s Rebuttal

goldcoinsI’m totally off the grid these days, but Ryan’s predictions are so bad I had to come in and rip them to shreds and give you the REAL numbers.  His bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out were pretty weak.  He called his performance was mixed–but for him mixed was chocolate plus peanut butter.  In reality, it is a mix of Ex-lax and motor oil.  So I am going to go, one by one, through his 2016 picks and give the real number.  We have a lunch bet on who has the lowest delta between the acutals and their predictions.  NO PRICE IS RIGHT RULES IN EFFECT!

Teaser Time: Warcraft

warcraftposters_610

So, for some reason, there’s a Warcraft movie coming out.

As near as I can make out, I’m the only person at Gabbing Geek who ever played World of Warcraft at all, and for the life of me, I still don’t know why there’s a movie coming.  I mean, yeah, a few million players worldwide, the game as a deep mythology of its own, and so forth, but has there ever been a successful movie based on a video game?

Well, there’s a teaser after the cut if anyone is interested.  Don’t sneeze during play or you’ll miss the whole thing and have to play it again.

Podcast Reaction: Wild Card Edition

I have no idea what pic to put up here.
I have no idea what pic to put up here.

This week on the podcast, the Gabbiest of Geeks discussed random stuff that happened at the San Diego Comic Con.  I got name dropped twice.  Once when Watson mistook a completely different Sy-Fy bit of programming that I had brought up from one Ryan was discussing.  Ryan’s sounded very interesting, but I was discussing in the GG Bullpen a mini-series based on Arthur C. Clarke’s Childhood’s End that I may try to set up as a book club thing for here on the website.  Stay tuned.

I also learned I am apparently in Hell.  I wasn’t expecting that.  I imagine that is what most people say when they find themselves there.

So, what should I discuss?

Wow – some people are just so incredibly talented. We are in awe of the amazing work that is showcased by a member of the Korean cosplay team Spiral Cats as Grommash.

But still – props to you fine sir, from the makeup, to the prosthetics, to the costume – you just won the internet! See more photos after the break:
