Duff Pint Glass
How do I not have any geeky beer glasses? I need to fix that, and I think a Duff Beer glass would be a perfect start. Then I can move on to TMNT beer glasses.

Nickelodeon Confirms 3rd Season for TMNT Series
Booyakasha indeed!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Chia Pet! | Dinosaur Dracula!
As if you needed any more proof that Turtlemania is upon us again, Matt at Dinosaur Dracula found a freaking TMNT Chia Pet.

Scientifically Accurate Spider-Man on Devour.com
This is hilarious and disturbing, as a 'Scientifically Accurate Spider-Man' should be.

The Muppets… Again Will Have Gold « Muppet Fans Who Grew Up – ToughPigs
Whoa, a classic Muppet performer is coming back for the new movie. Now if they could only get Frank Oz back.

‘Planes’ Trailer: Disney Does Pixar | /Film
I can't believe this is actually getting released in theaters now. Come on, Disney.

Chris Cooper to Play Norman Osborne in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ Will He Suit Up as the Green Goblin? | /Film
Awesome casting. I'd been trying to think of someone cool to play Osborne in TASM 2 but I would never have picked someone as high-caliber as Chris Cooper. I agree with /Film that we probably won't see him in costume, but regardless he'll be a very intense Norman Osborne.

The Crooked Ninja Turtle Gang: Lego TMNT Stop Motion Shorts
These are so cool. I'm a sucker for anything TMNT, LEGO, or stop motion, so these are right up my alley.

Excellent write-up about the new Star Wars 6' line and why they will (probably) fail.

BIGFOOT TOYS OF THE 1970s! | TheFwoosh.com
I approve of this post.

Adventure Time: The Complete First & Second Season Blu-rays
Awesome, you don't see new cartoons get Blu-ray releases very often. I would actually buy these to upgrade the episodes on my media center. Why only the first two season though?

SG Nerf: Nerf Rebelle!
This is kind of silly. I have tons of nieces with bigger Nerf gun arsenals than me, and none of their guns are pink with feather designs.

Man Cookie Cutter (Action) – CopperGifts.com
It may say ‘Man’ cookie cutter, but they’re not fooling anyone. It’s a Bigfoot cookie cutter. What can I say, I’m on a bigfoot kick this week.

The next Laika movie will be The Boxtrolls, co-directed by Graham Annable
You had me at "The next Laika movie"

Jim Henson & Frank Oz Talking In 1989 With Kermit & More | The Mary Sue
This is a great find, I love looking up Jim Henson stuff on YouTube.

A month with the iPad mini — Minimally Minimal
A great write-up of what an iPad Mini is like. I've had mine for less than a month and I love it.

10 Tips to Avoid Getting Burned by Kickstarter | ShezCrafti
Jaime over at ShezCrafti wrote an excellent guide to using Kickstarter (as a consumer). Some great tips here.

The Walt Disney Image Problem
Interesting article about Walt Disney. I always roll my eyes at people when they say something about Disney being a Nazi, but it’s hard to blame them when the company doesn’t do much to educate people about what he was really like.

HAL 9000 | Uncrate
Is this awesome? Yes. Is this practical? I don't think so, Dave.

Song of the South: Disney’s Most Notorious Film by Jason Sperb, reviewed. – Slate Magazine
I can't wait to read this book. Song of the South is one of the most interesting pieces of Disney history.

Denny’s “The Hobbit” Menu Video Review
I’m glad I only entertained the thought of going to Denny’s for a split second, because these Hobbit-inspired dishes look pretty disgusting.

Will ‘Star Wars Episode VII’ Return To Yavin 4 From ‘Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope?’
This sounds like a plan to me. I always loved the look of Yavin IV in A New Hope, and Luke training a new breed of Jedi could make for a fun movie.

Things We Saw Today: These Hobbit Cupcakes Would Make for a Great Second Breakfast
Mmm….Hobbit cupcakes.

High Frame Rate and ‘The Hobbit:’ The Allure of Middle-Earth is Crystal Clear at 48fps | /Film
Interesting thoughts on the 48 fps thing with The Hobbit. I really wish there was a theater close to me showing the film in HFR.

Dark Lord: an evil overlord trapped in a kid’s body – Boing Boing
Another YA novel I'd like to read. This one sounds hilarious and I hope they make a movie.

Life As We Knew It – asteroid catastrophe young adult novel – Boing Boing
Cool-sounding YA novel that I might check out. Because, you know, regular-adult novels are so looong.

Freaks and Geeks Reunion Photos | The Mary Sue
2000 seems like such a long time ago. This is a great photo shoot, but come on, a movie would be a little more gratifying.

Corey Feldman Joins TMNT Voice Cast for Season 2
This is good news, but surely he's not going to be Casey Jones? I’m sure the new show will have a much younger, unique Casey Jones than we’re use to, so maybe Feldman wouldn’t be such a bad choice.
