Your Weekend Justice #98: Upton Sinclair Wept

It’s Weekend Justice: the podcast that don’t need no steekin’ batches. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

Threadless: “Thanks For Noticin’ Me”

Threadless: A Very Naughty Bear

I have to admit, I felt a bit unclean looking at this shirt, featuring a pissed off Winnie the Kodiak Pooh. It makes me want a trailer mashup between The Edge and Winnie the Pooh. “We’re going to kill the bear!” “Oh, bother.”

Also, it reminds me of this guy–and I just Twittered this in case anyone knows who this is–who was going around San Diego Comic-Con collecting sketches of people doing their own version of Winnie the Pooh. Alex Ross recreated the cover of Marvels #1 with Pooh in the place of The Human Torch falling out of the sky, on fire and screaming. And James O’Barr had drawn Tigger as The Crow, bullet holes and all. They were fantastic. Does anyone know who that was?

Anyway, the sick sick Pooh shirt can be found here. And while you’re going over there, check out this, which is even more Dindraney than the last Dindrane shirt they had.

Stuff: Chris McQuarrie and Guillermo Del Toro are The Champions, My Friends

What do you need to know about what’s going on pop culture? Less than other sites would lead you to believe. Here’s the news as quick as we can manage it. Enjoy.

  • Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) has come on board to write and produce a feature film version of the 60s series, The Champions, with Guillermo “Can’t Possibly Be Human” Del Toro. I had no idea what the series was, so I offer this up as a snippet. British sci-fi 60s goodness:

    Direct link for the feedreaders.

  • Pushing Daisies is on the block. ABC is trying to figure out whether or not to order more episodes beyond the thirteen for this season that have wrapped. Unless something beyond the episodes I’ve seen has gone terribly awry, then refusing to make more of this series is a travesty. Source: Hollywood Reporter.

    Captain America: What is With the Shiny?

    Captain America, now shiny

    Ladies and gentlemen, the new and supposedly improved Captain America.

    And here’s my question: why the hell is he shiny? My Captain America is NOT shiny. In fact, Doc was asking about the gun, and I didn’t even notice the gun because I was too blinded by the goddamn shiny to see it.

    Maybe that’s secret weapon. It’s to blind his enemies and reader and keep things moving for the inevitable “Who is Captain America?” six-issue story arc followed by another six-issue story arc with him fighting as Captain America and then the return of Steve Rogers a year from now.

    What’s that? You’re certain Steve Rogers is for-real dead? Of course he is, sweetheart.

    Odds and Ends for 12-12-2005

    These newsbits followed us home. Can we keep them?

    Truffles with Bailey’s Irish Creme inside. Nice.

    Presumably the last drawing of Jonah Hex by creator John Albano before Albano passed away in May. Found via Back Issue.

    Why didn’t we have forts like this when we were kids? And don’t give me that “Well, we got to use our imagination” line. Screw imagination. This shit is cool.

    Pepsi adds cappuccino to their drinks in a desperate effort to make them drinkable. Sorry, Pepsi tastes like stale Coke to me. I just figured when Coke got old, they sold it to Pepsi, who would then repackage it. All a conspiracy.

    I’ll give a dollar to anybody who can convince Alex Ross he has to paint a version of this.

    This nifty mug is mentioned as a way for people who have problems communicating to order their coffee. Screw that, I have problems remembering what I ordered five minutes later. Sign me up.

    Each floor has its own theme of food. Now we just need a building like that for coffee. We’d never leave.

    Neil Gaiman steps aside for a new character, Skippy, to answer his mail. Oh, bitchcakes!
