Stuff: Questlove is Grounded and I Don’t Feel So Good Myself

Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow - Avengers poster

Each week we try to bring you a catch-up post on the latest in pop culture news. Because reading a whole bunch of individual posts just takes too much bloody time. And we want you to have a life. So enjoy.

Speaking of having a life: it’s Black Friday. And if you’re going to snag some Black Friday deals (or anything at all, really) from Amazon, please do it through us. You can even use this link. When you do, we get kickbacks and those help to keep Need Coffee alive. Many thanks, amigos.

  • Marvel has released a series of Avengers teaser posters. That’s a snippet there with Scarlett as Black Widow. For the whole lot, featuring all the major characters, check out this link.
  • Arrested Development lives. It’s coming back in early 2013 thanks to Netflix. No idea where a rumored feature film is at this point. Dear Netflix: keep some money handy for when AMC gets stupid and decides Walking Dead is too expensive. Just a tip. Source: Variety.

    Your Weekend Justice #132: The Regeneration of Sherman

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that is stuck between the twin pop culture gravity wells of Doctor Who and Jedward. And is pulled in twain, shrieking. 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.

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that gives you more take home assignments than any other. No other podcast gives you more screwed up things to think about…guaranteed.

    From the Archives: Potter, Trek and More

    Card catalog

    In an effort to drag our ten years’ worth of archives kicking and screaming into the cold unblinking light of the 21st Century (remember, the site’s been around for 11+ years), ScottC has been spearheading the effort to get a bunch of pages converted into WordPress from their original HTML versions. The oldest from this batch is from 1998.

    We’ve pulled up the Harry Potter reviews, including both the movie review and DVD review of Sorcerer’s Stone and the DVD review for Chamber of Secrets. We have two movie reviews for it, from myself and Catalyst.

    And we’ve pulled up–trying to get our array of Trek stuff into WordPress–the DVD reviews for Voyage Home, Final Frontier and Nemesis.

    And in the random department, both the movie reviews for Robert Downey Jr. in Two Girls in a Guy and Russell Crowe in The Insider have been updated as well.
