Remember playing games on the old-school iPods?

Check Out This Unseen Trailer For Sam Raimi’s ‘Spider-Man’ Featuring Webshooters | /Film
A weird bit of Spider-Man movie history. I never knew Raimi ever even considered mechanical web shooters.

Simpsons Drawing Club
An awesome new Tumblr featuring, you guessed it, drawings of Simpsons characters. There are a lot of different styles, and I'm looking forward to following this one.

The Crooked Ninja Turtle Gang: September Lootcrate Unboxing
Take a look inside a month of Loot Crate, the swag-by-mail service for geeks we reported on a few weeks ago.

It's close, but I think this is my new favorite poster featuring 13 dwarves.

See Concept Art from the Early ’80s ‘Silver Surfer’ Movie That Never Happened | Movie News | Movies.com
The Silver Surfer was almost the first Marvel movie ever. Interesting.

Vlog: TMNT Sewer Exploration Belt, from 1990. | Dinosaur Dracula!
I totally forgot about the Sewer Exploration Belt. I never had one, but it was on my radar. I opted to get the Turtle Communicator instead, but I love the less-known bits of TMNT merchandise.

‘The Office’ Closes After One More Season | /Film
The second half of last season was a disappointment to me, but the promise of going out with a bang will get me to tune in. I just hope they bring Michael Scott back for at least one episode.

Rumor: John Travolta Might Play ‘The Toxic Avenger’
Wait, what?

LEGO CUUSOO News: Curiosity Achieves 10,000 Votes On Cuusoo | From Bricks To Bothans

Two things I'm starting to enjoy together lately: nostalgia and food. Cookie Monster's sugar cookie dough recipe is going to get made sometime very soon in the THS headquarters.

Super Punch: Win some super cool Paranorman Nikes
I wouldn't wear these, but they're pretty awesome and totally look like something out of a 90s video game.

‘Raiders Of The Lost Ark’ Getting IMAX Release September 7 | /Film
Count me in, I've never seen an Indiana Jones movie in the theater and I'd love to see Raiders in IMAX.

Daredevil Rights Will Return to Marvel, Watch Sizzle Reels from Joe Carnahan’s Unmade Adaptation | /Film

Exclusive! Interview with the 2012 TMNT Voice Cast
It’s cool hearing the cast of the new TMNT show get along so well, hopefully their chemistry comes through in the final product.

Will ‘Ant-Man’ Shoot Immediately Following ‘Thor: The Dark World?’ | /Film
I really hope so. The world needs an Edgar Wright super hero movie. Badly.

LEGO® CUUSOO | Exo Suit
Check out this badass LEGO Exo Suit that's up for voting on CUUSOO. I remember seeing this a while back and wishing I had the instructions to make one.

Marvel Phase Two: Where Does Hawkeye Fit In?
Where indeed. I hope he pops up in Captain America 2, and I'd love to see him and Black Widow get their own S.H.I.E.L.D. movie.

Trivia: Where Was The Joker In ‘The Dark Knight Rises?’ | /Film
I thought about this right after seeing TDKR. Where was the Joker during all the mayhem?

Yes Virginia, there is a perfect super hero trilogy: ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ | ShezCrafti
Jaime over at Shezcrafti wrote up a nice (and spoiler-free) review of The Dark Knight Rises. I'm going to be a day or so late to this party, but I can't wait to see it.

TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman is loving Michael Bay’s movie – will fans? – Boing Boing
Even though I consider myself pretty hardcore when it comes to TMNT, I don't have a problem with them ditching the mutant aspect. Face it, they don't look that much like turtles anyway.

Pixar Is Making “Finding Nemo 2″ | Cartoon Brew
Interesting. So Disney is kind of forcing Andrew Stanton to direct Finding Nemo 2 before they'll let him make any more live action movies? It's a bummer that John Carter didn't do better in the box office.

Here’s the Opening of Nickelodeon’s TMNT Reboot! | ShezCrafti
They're kind of using the old theme song! Awesome. This show looks like a lot of fun.
