Amazing Transparent Man

32 Days of Halloween X, Day 6: The Amazing...

Day 6 of 32 Days of Halloween is upon us. Soon, we shall confront The Amazing Transparent Man.  But before then…it’s time for a Peter Lorre twofer. First up, a bit from the Disneyland TV show where Walt Disney introduces Kirk...

Liam Neeson, Badass

Top 10 Things We’d Like to See Liam...

Liam Neeson is badass. This might be news to some, but not to me. I remember Rob Roy, where, among other things, he and Tim Roth engaged in one of the best on-screen swordfights of all time. If only the bad guys in Taken had gotten the memo...

Widge Meets the Giant Squid

I’m apparently the most excited person around these parts now that the Georgia Aquarium has a giant squid carcass (the head of one, anyway) on display, loaned to it from the Smithsonian. It’s on the second floor of the cold water...

Win Monster Quest Season 2 on DVD!

Twenty episodes across five discs…how can you deny the joy of titles like “Giant Squid Ambush” and “Sasquatch Attack II”? You probably can’t. Your only hope is to win the spare copy that we have here. And...

Unleash Your Inner Pod

You know it’s funny to find a pointer to this on Ectoplasmosis–we ran into this print, No. 8 by Kathie Olivas and Brandt Peters, at DragonCon. And we share their zeal for it. It’s amazing. The artists were there (nice...

“Let Loose the Kraken!” Now...

Call no man happy who does not use Giant Squid Condoms. Never go deep diving without them, friends. And honestly, I can see Bruce Campbell delivering those lines in an advert. Can’t you? Full image here. Found via Squid.

And There’s a Creepy (Paper)...

While it amuses us that somebody (in this case, Jason Norman) created a Jonathan Coulton paper doll that you can dress up like the squid from “I Crush Everything” and the Evil MechaSanta from “Chiron Beta Prime,” was...
