Cool Stuff: DuckTales Promotional Folder from 1987

Posted 1 year ago by Television


DuckTales will always be one of the things I am most nostalgic for, along with classic Nintendo and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It just always reminds me of my childhood and I love getting my hands on anything DuckTales related. I was looking around online for obscure bits of DuckTales history yesterday and found this cool promotional folder that was used to get Disney licensees pumped about their new animated TV show.

Trailer for ‘Video Games: The Movie’

Posted 1 year ago by Games, Movies

I like podcasts, websites, and books about video games just about as much as playing them. A movie about video games? I’m so there. A trailer for the forthcoming documentary Video Games: The Movie was just released.

It got its start as a Kickstarter campaign. The project raised over $100,000 a year ago. This is the first feature for writer-director Jeremy Snead who has a few short films to his credit.

The film is executed produced by actor Zach Braff and game creator Cliff Bleszinski (Unreal, Games of War). Former Microsoft exec J Allard, the guy who lead Xbox’s creation, is a co-producer. The doc has interviews with a wide variety of video game celebs like Chris Hardwick, Clare Grant, Wil Wheaton, and Alison Haislip.

Video Games: The Movie will be available on demand and in theaters on July 15. You can preorder on VHX.

Cool Stuff: Marvel Superheros ‘Got Milk’ Commercial

Posted 1 year ago by Television

I vaguely remember seeing this commercial back in the day, but it’s interesting to see now that we’re actually used to having The Avengers in live action on film. The costumes in this Got Milk commercial are straight out of the comics, and are pretty interesting. That Hulk actually looks kind of awesome! I know they wouldn’t have been able to use that for a movie very well, but it looks really cool. And that Spidey costume doesn’t look bad at all.

Iron Man on the other hand looks a little derpy.

Secondhand Score: ‘Empire Strikes Back’ Coloring Book from 1982

Empire Strikes Back Coloring Book

I don’t make it to garage sales very often. It seems like every time I try to hit them up, I just run into old clothes, worthless household goods, and baby stuff. I get so jealous of my blogger buddies when they find awesome stuff, but I never have any luck. Anyway, the wife and I hit up a few community-wide yard sales this past weekend, and I actually ended up finding a few cool things.

At one house, underneath a pile of Show n’ Tell Picturesound Programs was an unused Empire Strikes Back coloring book from 1982. I couldn’t believe it. I collect 80s/90s coloring books and I’ve never come across a Star Wars book. It wasn’t priced, so I grabbed the Show n’ Tell records and the book and asked how much. I got all six items for $5 and got the hell out before she could realize how giddy I was about the coloring book.
