Hump Day News clippings and stuff

Oi! Welcome to the Getting Off Topic blogzord. IT'S BLOGGIN' TIME! (80's metal riff)

It's Wednesday, and what better day to inject some fun into this damn thus-far-barren blog. Well, not quite barren, as it's been filled with podcasty goodness for quite some time. HOWEVER, that has clearly been the gist of it. So here is my first attempt at expanding on this hunk of interweb space that I paid a few bucks for a  few months ago.

Commence with the random cool stuff I found online todayyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!

FIRSTLY, get your collective butts over to Amazon right now. Well, first please finish reading the blog. Or just open this link in a new tab, because The Mel Brooks Collection is on sale today only for $21.99 on DVD, $23.99 on blu-ray!

SECONDSIEZ! Remember Insidious? That movie with that crazy red-face demon dude that scared all the pee out of you? Wait, that didn't happen to you? ...Me either, I was totally kidding.... (hides pee stain) ANYWHO, the first trailer for Insidious: Chapter 2 has been released. Watch it below, and hold your bladder!

THIRDST! Entertainment Weekly released the first exclusive photo of Evangeline Lilly getting her bad-elven-ass on in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug! Kate (ahem, I mean Evangeline) will be playing Tauriel, an Elven warrior and brand new character written for the films. Naturally, the potential for knee-jerk nerd rage would be WAY high on the scales (how dare they make new characters that weren't in the book!!!). However geeks everywhere, Tolkien and non-Tolkien fans alike, have been sad in the pants ever since Evangeline finally got off that damned island and stopped gracing their TV screens every Sunday night covered in an oddly attractive mix of sweat and dirt. Sweadirt.
You're still on the island in my heart, Evangeline!

And finally, Wednesday is comic book day! Here's a bunch of new stuff to find in your local comic shops starting today. On that note, please support your local comic book stores! There's nothing cooler than finding an awesome local shop with good deals, good stock and good people. I've discovered a few good spots since moving to the Anaheim area not too long ago. Maybe I'll review some for you soon! In the meantime, check out www.comicshoplocator.com to find a good comic shop in your area too!
