2016 Comic-Con Preview!

Posted By on Sun, Jul 24, 2016 at 4:07 PM

San Diego Comic-Con was this weekend and a ton of exciting trailers were premiered. Here are a look at a few of them I found exciting. 



Wonder Woman: It's about damn time. Gal Gadot reprises her role as Wonder Woman in this WWI set action fantasy continuing the DC cinematic universe that started with "Man of Steel" and "Batman v. Superman." Director Patty Jenkins looks like she's adding some welcome color to the de-saturated DC Movie color palate. Opens June 2, 2017.



Legion: David Haller is basically the most powerful mutant in the Marvel Universe. As the son of Charles Xavier, he is a powerful telepath who also has multiple personality disorder. Each one of his identities are more powerful than the last and he has the ability to reshape reality as a whim. The show is being run by Noah Hawley, who proved to be one of the finest voices in television with his adaptation of "Fargo." Expect this show to bring forward imagery and storylines never seen before on television. Premieres in 2017.



American Gods: Based on the pretty fantastic book by Neil Gaiman, "American Gods" is the new show shepherded by Bryan Fuller, the genius behind "Hannibal," "Pushing Daisies" and the upcoming new "Star Trek" series. The book tells the story of Shadow, a man released from prison just as his beloved wife perishes in a car crash. He meets up with the Norse god Odin, goes on adventures and gets involved in a war between the new and old gods. This show should be an absolute blast. Premieres in 2017.


Doctor Strange: While the first trailer had its moments, this second look at "Doctor Strange" really shows us what kind of tone they're going for with the Marvel superhero. That tone: Batshit Crazy. Bendermack Crambysnacks stars as the good Doctor, who learns how to make magic, fight bad guys and stare at trippy, "Inception"-esque cityscapes. Opens November 4, 2016. 


Kong: Skull Island: Can we all agree that the best part of Peter Jackson's "King Kong" was the Skull Island section? Good! Then the idea of Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Sam Jackson and John Goodman fighting giant monsters on a mysterious island of doom should make all of us happy. Plus, this trailer is just gangbusters. Seriously, what else could you possibly need from a Kong movie than what these 120 seconds promises? Opens March 10, 2017.


The LEGO Batman Movie: Just trust me. Watch this trailer. Did you like "The Lego Movie?" Of course you did. Now look at how delightful this one appears to be. So delightful. Self-serious and pompous Batman to the rescue. Opens February 2017. 


Luke Cage: Why did it take this long for someone to use Wu-Tang in a superhero setting? Feels like a missed opportunity. Just sayin. Premieres September 30th on Netflix.

Mead of the Week: Aphrodite (Valentine's Edition!)

Posted By on Thu, Feb 14, 2013 at 4:25 PM

St. Valentine loves mead.
  • St. Valentine loves mead.

If you need to give your Valentine's Day a special charge consider this mead from Nectar of the Gods Meadery. It's a quadruple aphrodisiac! Quadruple because mead itself is said to be a love potion and this one in particular is made with pomegranate, passion fruit and rose—all known aphrodisiacs. So there you have it. The perfect drink! Cheers, St. Valentine!

This is my favorite NOG mead so far—not too sweet and not overly alcohol-y tasting. We're sampling it here in the office and so far no one is making out. We'll keep you posted though.

You can find it at Crows Feet Commons, available for a limited time only. The "Viking Love Juice" is also at The Horned Hand Mead Hall.

Valentine's Day: Staff Picks

Posted By on Mon, Feb 14, 2011 at 9:01 PM

hoffy_valentines_day.jpg
I’m just gonna say it. Valentine’s Day confuses the hell out of me. The day that may or may not have been created by a greeting card company seems to have become a day of mandatory gift giving. If you’re single, you’ll probably have to endure a day full of couples making out in front of you and having bouquets of roses meant for your coworker being delivered accidentally to your desk. If you’re in a relationship, you probably didn’t do it right, so just apologize already.

My Valentine’s Day usually involves ignoring the grand gestures everyone else around me seems to be receiving, then fighting with the person I told not to get me anything because he didn’t get me anything, then getting drunk.

This year, I’ve resolved to do it better. So I asked my coworkers what their plans are. If all else fails, there's always the Hoff. 

 


 

 

Source Weekly Valentine’s Day Staff Picks:

“I am excited for a romantic evening with my wife, which means watching Teenwolf, as is our annual tradition.” – Mike Bookey, Arts and Culture Editor

“I got what I wanted!  My 10 1/2 month old son has been refusing to say “mama” for the last few weeks and is constantly saying ‘dada’. This morning, I got “ma” and that is good enough for me.” - Amanda Klingman, Sales Director

“All I want to Valentine’s Day is to share several of my favorite loves with The Lust List’s Hottest Librarian. After spending the evening cooking pizza and cleaning the restaurant I moonlight at, all I want is a Sinistor (AKA love in a pint glass) and something with bacon (aka my one true love) on it for dinner. Perhaps my friend the hottest Librarian and I will indulge in some rom-com glory and watch 500 Days of Summer. Ooh la la.” – Anne Pick, Calendar Editor 

“I just want to play hockey.” – Eric Flowers, Editor in Chief
