    Threadless: Off With Her Head And Out With Her Brains!

    Alice in Zombie Wonderland

    ScottC posted this to Twitter and he was dead-on. It is sort of custom-made for me. Not only is it Alice in Wonderland, which I dig and which we’ve explored before, but it also involves zombies. And with this site, one of our few consistent editorial stances is that “If it’s undead and bleeds, it leads.” So how could I say no to Alice wielding a pair of katanas and going to town on some zombie denizens of Wonderland? The Zombies in Wonderland shirt is fantastic.

    Also of note is an awesome Ghostbusters-referencing shirt that ordinarily would be right up my alley as well, but as you will quickly see, “Something Strange in Your Beverage” is on a blue shirt. Maybe on the reprint they’ll get it right.

    Win an Alice in Wonderland Cap!

    Cheshire Cat cap Alice in Wonderland all-over cap

    So a whole load of people have already seen the new Tim Burton/Disney Alice in Wonderland. And now that it’s on screens and racking up the box office, you can also wear it on your head. That’s the idea of New Era Cap, anyway. And they sent us three assorted sizes of two of their Alice in Wonderland caps and they are pretty snazzy. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

    The Cheshire Cat Cap is a black 59Fifty style cap with the Cheshire Cat’s highlighting his grinning expression. His eyes are bright blue giving the hat to stand out with his detailed white grin. For the rest of the cap it displays strategically detailed designs which make the hat look like the Cheshire Cat’s fur. On the back of the cap there is a spiraling saying “Most everyone’s mad here. You may have noticed that I’m not all there myself.”

    The All Over cap is a white 59Fifty style cap with a 360 degree sketched portrait which features Alice, Mad Hatter, March Hare, White Rabbit, Mouse, Caterpillar, and the Red Queen. On the top of the cap brim features the Cheshire Cat, and TweedleDee and TweedleDum on the inside of the brim.

    We have these hats–and you can win them. It’s pretty simple how you go about doing this–you enter using the form below. You can even enter once a day if you feel your heart moved to do so. And if we draw your name when the contest ends, you win. Granted, you will win a random style and a random size, but they’re both pretty sweet. So I think you will be pleased. Does this plan sound mad? Well, it is a Lewis Carroll-inspired hat contest, isn’t it?

    And for more from New Era Cap, check out their official site here.

    But I Don’t Want to Wear Mad T-Shirts…

    Threadless: Cheshire t-shirt

    Threadless has created many cool shirts in their time, especially recently when they started throwing UV ink and glow in the dark ink and all kinds of “special effects” into the mix. Now that they’ve created this latest Alice in Wonderland-inspired shirt, I think they’ve outdone themselves when it comes to badass shirts for kids. I mean, it’s cool for adults–but what kid wouldn’t want a disappearing cat that also glows in the dark? I mean…seriously.

    Outside in direct sunlight the cat’s body is visible, inside the cat’s body goes away–and in the dark, the teeth and eyes glow.

    Sure, their most recent update includes an awesome black and white apocalyptic shirt, but this one takes the cake. To snag a Cheshire shirt for yourself, click here.

    P.S. I do admit that the picture we chose makes it look like Miyazaki’s Catbus is about to charge out of a tunnel and run you over. Please don’t let that stop you from enjoying the shirt.

    Halloween Audio Day 14: Jabberwocky

    Jabberwocky

    So here’s one I probably personally would not have picked to do. It doesn’t strike me as being terribly Halloween-ish, although as has been pointed out to me, it does have creepy undertones. But hey, people requested it and wanted to hear it, so here it is, by popular demand. Some Lewis Carroll for you and “Jabberwocky.”

    Stuff: Mashup Artists Looking Forward to Warren Ellis/Holy Grail Possibilties

    Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex with Megan Fox

    There’s plenty going on in the world of pop culture. But you have a life–we don’t. That’s why we do this: news in quick digestible chunks so you can be about your business, armed with geek info. You’re welcome.

  • A bunch of posters were rolled out at San Diego, including Jonah Hex (snippet shown), can be found at Yahoo Movies. Some are unimpressive, like, oh, Saw VI. But the Alice in Wonderland posters give a better look at the characters. And such.
  • Castlevania is back on again, with James Wan (Saw) on board to co-scribe and helm. And they’re apparently discarding the previous version of the script and starting over. And what does this mean to the animated version that Uncle Warren scribed? No idea. Although if somebody wanted to send me his script, I wouldn’t be sad. I’m just saying. Source.
  • You L.A. types, be aware that Cirque du Soleil is doing more of their 25th anniversary fun-stuff at the Grove this coming Sunday, August 2nd. All six shows from Vegas will have acts on hand to perform starting at 12:30pm and for free. Nice. “The event will be family friendly, featuring a circus play area set up for kids with face painting, jugglers and other activities. Prize giveaways, specially priced tickets for the shows in Vegas, and a chance to meet Cirque du Soleil castmembers will round out the festivities.” Also nice. Seriously, if you’re out that way, go. It’ll be a hoot. Source.

    Remixing The Perfect Nanny

    The guy’s name is Pogo and he’s an Australian remixer of sound-things. Check out this fantastic bit, based on samples from Mary Poppins:

    Direct link for the feedreaders.

    Here’s a slightly unrelated bit, but I realized it when we ran a contest for Mary Poppins a little ways back: the little girl is Karen Dotrice. I thought, “Huh. Dotrice isn’t a very common name, I don’t think…is she any relation to Roy?” Of course she is. It’s Roy Dotrice’s daughter. Roy Dotrice is perhaps best known to all of you as the dad in the Beauty in the Beast series with Ron Perlman. He was most recently the Elfin King in Hellboy II. And he read the audiobook of the first three books of A Song of Ice and Fire and rocked the house on each one.

    Anyway, there–your Widge-realized trivia bit of the day.

    Found via @Metaglyph. Pogo’s MySpace is here. Another vid after the break.
