It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast with show notes that are the best show notes based on the novel Robinson Crusoe that you’ve ever read. Or not read. Does anyone actually read these words?

    Your Weekend Justice #168: Those Amazing Eels and…Oh, Forget It

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that just gets shut down wherever it turns. Even on the intro to the show notes.

    Your Weekend Justice #167: You Must Flow Like Waterston

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that comes up with great ideas for ways to get kicked out of conventions. They are so awesome you would think it would be totally worth it, but you would get your ass totally booted. Fair warning. 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.

    A primer for these posts: they’re to keep you up to date on what’s happening in the world of pop culture. Just the highlights and such, because the market on paraphrasing press releases is more than taken. Enjoy.

    Stuff You Need to Know: The Trouble With Holy Whatever Batman Jokes is That They Were All Used Up By 1978

    Adam West and bomb from Batman

    Some sites want to rephrase every press release they get. And post every photo. As the philosopher once said, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.” Here’s all the pop culture news you actually need in a single post. Enjoy.

  • Trying to get this up as quickly as possibly because I know there are a few Star Trek: Next Generation fans out there. The Blu-Ray Motion Picture Collection is the deal of the day at Amazon. It’s 62% off the list price at present, clocking in at $26.49. That’s today only and while stocks last. Good luck.
  • Well, they’ve finally worked out the Batman merchandising. And by that, I mean the 60s television series. And by that I mean that they’ve been limited as to what they could do with merch since they didn’t have a deal in place to use the likenesses of the actors and whatnot. I think I would be happy with an afforable Shakespeare bust, myself. But regardless, you can look for stuff to rollout quickly. Source: Variety.

    Superlative Etsy Finds #3: Retro Posters, Monster Bags & a Zombie Ranch

    Batman Retro Poster

    Everyone needs to buy decorative items from time to time–either for yourself or for someone you love (or even for someone you are ambivalent about but required to purchase a gift for–what do you get that cousin you met once for her wedding?). Rather than driving to the mall, wouldn’t it be easier and more fun to hop online and find some truly imaginative pieces, while supporting independent artists in the process? Etsy is a good place to do that, and even though some resellers of imported crap find their way in far too easily, there are some truly talented and imaginative people there making really great art. So go poke around–find something really cool! Here’s a few things that caught my eye recently…

    Harshness makes awesome geeky stylized posters, with subject matter ranging from X-Men to Game of Thrones. This wonderful Batman image caught my eye, but do go check out their whole catalog of items–there are some amazingly cool pieces to decorate your space for any and all types of geekery out there.

    Your Weekend Justice #158: The Worst Podcast Ever (Arguably)

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that only has a certain amount of games, so if too many people get game, the podcast falls off track. And onto the third rail. And its keys. At the same time. 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.

    What I Want From “The Dark Knight Rises”

    Dark Knight Rises Poster

    So, in case you hadn’t heard, the full trailer for The Dark Knight Rises went live, and it is oh so very much yes. But, in addition to just showing you this brand new hotness and asking you “Christopher Nolan: Great Director? Or GREATEST Director?” I want to take a moment of your time to engage in some wild and nearly baseless speculation.

    Now, some of you may not know it but, within the past three years or so, there’s been a thing in comics called “Batman, Inc.” The gist is this: Bruce Wayne has finally realised the extent of what he can do with all of his money and resources, and has started sending himself and other members of the Batman Family out into the world to recruit local candidates to be Batman in that city/part of the world.

    Each new recruit has their own codename, but they all wear an easily recognisable version of the Symbol of the Bat. This says, “You know who Batman is. Look at me. I’m Batman. I have all of the Batman’s resources and the full weight of his network of support.” This is really just the logical extension of what had already been happening in an organic way with the rest of the Batman Family.

    Stuff You Need to Know: Daniel Day-Lewis is Abe, Honestly

    Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln

    The frustrating thing about pop culture websites is they try to slam you with update after update–and most of it you simply don’t need to know. One post a week, catching you up with everything. That’s what we do. Pour some espresso and get your dose.

  • The Lincoln biopic, helmed by Spielberg, is a month into production and Hollywood Reporter had the first glimpse of Daniel Day-Lewis in full makeup as Abe. And damn. That’s pretty awesome. Cosette’s response: “Did he build a log cabin this time?” Yes. And studied his lines off a shovel. Is it just me or does this just make you want to see Day-Lewis fight vampires? Also, note that Variety says Jared Harris (the upcoming Moriarty–who, holy shit, that’s Richard Harris’ son!) will play Ulysses S. Grant and Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln.
  • Akira reworked plot points pointed out over at io9. Dindrane and fans of the original are warned to stay away, as you will have a severe allergic reaction. Here’s a taste: “Kaneda (Garret Hedlund) is a bar owner in Neo-Manhattan who is stunned when his brother, Tetsuo, is abducted by government agents led by The Colonel (Ken Watanabe).” And on from there.
