These ThunderCats Look Neato

The internet being what it is, here’s a re-animated, HD remake of the ThunderCats intro song. Apparently, YouTube creator extremee_ghost just gave themselves a project and spent two months redrawing every single frame. It’s a thing of beauty.

This is one of the good parts of the internet. All creative and fun and geeky and just awesome. And I love sharing that kind of stuff with you fine readers. Kudos to this creator for his fine works.

My 6 Favorite Things of 2021

It’s that time of year again. The end of it. And at the end of the year, everybody on the internet gets together and shares their Best Of lists for the previous year, this one being 2021. I’m no different. I’ve got favorites to talk about and share, and I’m happy to share them with you fine readers. Perhaps you’ll even agree with some of my choices!

As always, I don’t really listen to new music or read books, so I don’t have choices for those. That makes getting to six categories rather difficult, but I find ways to manage. Then we can dive into the really fun stuff! My favorite movie of the year? My favorite TV show? I was surprised by this one. How about video games? Or especially comics? There was a lot of great stuff to enjoy this year. I don’t claim to experience everything. I missed a ton of those really niche, arthouse movies. And I didn’t even up playing too many new video games. But I had a really good year, I think. And I’m looking forward to what this fancy new year has to offer.

Join me after the jump for my favorite bits and pieces of 2021. And feel free to share your own favorites below in the comments!

Let’s Celebrate the Gremlins (Animated)!

It’s still the Christmas season, so how about we celebrate the Gremlins? Some of their movies took place during Christmas, right? I haven’t seen a Gremlins movie in a dog’s age. But our favorite movie look animating YouTuber — Tell It Animated — spent the time to animate all the funky Gremlins! So let’s celebrate!

I love this guy. Gremlins is a fun choice.

As always, my recommendation is Robin. There’s plenty of movie and animation Robins to animate. And everybody loves a new Batman video, right?

Speaking of Gremlins, have you ever seen that classic Key and Peele sketch about Gremlins 2? That thing is so much fun!

Merry Christmas, From Ted Lasso

I love the TV show Ted Lasso. It’s great! They did a Christmas episode in their second season, and produced some little Rankin Bass-style stop motion figurines of their main characters for the title sequence. It was fun. And rather than let those figurines go to waste, they produced a full holiday short video!

That’s just cute. Why not enjoy this kind of fun? If you’re making a TV show, surely it’s a blast to do a side project where you make your own little Christmas short? At least I imagine it would be fun.

Can’t wait for season 3! Also, Nate sucks.

Behold Our First Look at Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is inarguably the greatest Spider-Man movie of all time, and could be the greatest movie of all time. So a sequel was inevitable and it’s coming next year! The first teaser trailer/look arrived yesterday and it looks neat as heck.

Part One? So this is going to be a two-part movie? Fascinating.

If I’m being honest, I think the name is a little problematic. “Across the Spider-Verse”? So we’re supposed to differentiate these movies for all time based only on the words “Into” and “Across” And then “Across 1” and “Across 2”? Sounds like madness to me!

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part One arrives in October 2022!
