Cthulhupalooza: It’s True… The Mi-Go Prefer Sprite

Dark Roasted Blend has a round-up of Cthulhu bits, some of which we’ve mentioned before–like the John Kovalic Cthulhu toy–and some of which are brand new. I’m thinking specifically of the giant tick thing that appears to be eating bits of Play-Doh off a wall in Russia.

But regardless, the best is this thing that appears to be a demonic lemon (swallowing/trying to mate with/both at the same time) a lime. Now I think we understand where those godawful Sublymonal ads came from–that’s right, From The Planet Yuggoth. Make peace with your gods.

Four Color Fury: What Do Marvel Comics Covers Say About Their Fans?

I remember a time when Marvel heroes used to fight Marvel villains. But apparently the main reason a hero and a villain will go toe to toe is if the villains have been recruited by the "good" heroes to go smack the "renegade" heroes. It's nice to know that Marvel heroes have their shit so wired they can have all the time in the world to fight amongst themselves.

Rio Bravo and The Cowboys Blazing a New Trail in Hi Def Glory

Debuting June 5th in time for Father’s Day

On June 5th Warner Home Video will release Rio Bravo and The Cowboys on HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc in honor of John Wayne’s 100th Birthday. Both films have been newly remastered and include commentaries, featurettes and theatrical trailers. Both will be available for $28.99 SRP.

Rio Bravo

Director Howard Hawks lifted the Western to new heights with Red River. He does it here again, capturing the legendary West with a stellar cast in peak form. Wayne is Sheriff John T. Chance, a small-town lawman enlisting the help of a ragtag team to hold a murderer in jail until the state marshal can arrive. On one side is an army of gunmen dead-set on springing the murderous cohort from jail. On the other are Chance and his two deputies: one a recovering drunkard (Dean Martin), the other a crippled codger (Walter Brennan). Also in their ranks are an unseasoned, trigger-happy youth (Ricky Nelson) and a woman with a past (Angie Dickinson) – and her eye on Chance. Rio Bravo will feature a new digital transfer from restored picture and audio elements.

The Cowboys

This deluxe edition has been newly restored and remastered, and features a new cast/director featurette. The Cowboys gave Wayne one of his juiciest roles as a leather-tough rancher who, deserted by his regular help, hires 11 greenhorn schoolboys for a cattle drive across 400 […]
