Come on. How cool is this?
Magic Camp is truly one of the most awkward documentaries I’ve seen in my life. A film featuring a summer camp for socially awkward teenage-magicians - Tannen’s Magic Camp is a prestigious summer camp for high school kids to gather and learn the skills necessary to train and grow as talented magicians.
The film is a combination of anxiety-ridden socially awkward moments and heart warming moments featuring kids who gather around a mutual love for magic. The film was sweet and was substantially less uncomfortable than the Bronies documentary. It’s an all-around accurate look at living with a passion for something that may be deemed “uncool” by the many other people in their schools.
At the very least you have to watch this trailer. It’s gut-wrenchingly uncomfortable - but there’s a ton of heart.
Just another plushie update! My co-worker’s sister-in-law is expecting a baby, so I was asked to make some tiny plushies for a baby mobile!
Taking inspiration from the pictures below (based on designs by Atelier Bloom): I made five animals, and five “accessories” to detail the mobile. I thought the end result turned out successful! I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product once they’ve been hung!
Alright, so I had hoped to have a FEW prints lined up for SDCC, and that quickly turned into many. I’m really excited about these prints and I hope you guys are too!
Each print will be available at the start of each day in limited quantities (so those who can only make it on certain days will still have a shot). I’ll also have a SDCC exclusive t-shirt which will be available in limited quantities. Nucleus will be releasing an exclusive print, Mondo will also have a new (yet to be announced) Just Like Us, as well as the Joker record.
You can find me at the Gallery Nucleus booth (#2743) where I’ll be with the huggable Scott C. and the fabulous Frank and Becky (also huggable). Please stop by and say hello, pick up a free postcard and see the Lil Mikey figure in person!

No. I’m not surprised that Transformers 4 was bad. It’s awful. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me four times? I don’t think so.
"Cleverly" re-branded as just "Age of Extinction" - Transformers 4 picks up after the events of the third film without any mention of any of the previous characters or story points. There is some talk of the events of the third film, but the fourth film hinges on the fact that "all" Transformers are being hunted down by the government and disposed of in order to protect America.
Alright. That’s the plot. What follows is just…insanity. The film is a mess from top to bottom and is absolute rubbish. The action scenes were great - and the IMAX shots were stunning to look at, but the film is a pile of garbage. Know who steals the show? Mark Wahlberg. Hands down, no questions asked. Wahlberg is not only absolutely hilarious in this film, but the funniest representation of a “regular guy” I’ve ever seen.
I’ve never found Mark Wahlberg to be a good actor - but he’s really, really funny in this film. He’s really been working on his humour and I now think he’s a better comedic actor than he is a serious one. See this film JUST for him. Honestly. One of his *real lines* that is spoken in a serious tone is “I think we found a Transformer”. It’s breathtaking.
On a positive note - because Transformers 4 is a “re-branding” of the series, doing away with stale characters from the original trilogy gives some room for a “newness” that gives us Wahlberg. Thank our Lord and saviour, Michael Bay, for that.
It makes me very happy to see Weird Al making music videos and new music. Check out his take on Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” with “Word Crimes”.
