I didn’t realize this at first, but the book version is the pimped out definitive collection of Shrub Monkeys. It’s got like… running cartoon commentary (by KT, Shaggy, and Hes) on top of the original cartoons. This is like the Criterion collection version of Shrub Monkeys. It’s the bee’s knees. It’s like the sound that a fox makes. It’s 120 pages of awesome.
- 50 Cent plays a nerd.
- Austrian accents.
- Ridiculous one-liners and catchphrases.
- No shower scenes. No bars of soap were dropped in this movie.
And I think that’s everything you need to know about this movie. If… Continue reading
I have to imagine that being the creator of a popular series or character must be a bit of a mixed bag. I’m sure it’s great to have something in the social conscience, and some sort of pop cultural legacy. And, without a doubt, it must be a great feeling to be able to make money off of something that was birthed from your imagination. But there must be a… Continue reading

The dude behind Rebecca Black’s “Friday” still continues to make music and music videos. “Chinese Food” is his latest video that has gone viral.
It’s arguably racist. The video features a dog landing on Oriental Avenue in a game of Monopoly. The singer’s friends dress up as Geishas, even though that’s a Japanese thing. As a Chinese person born in Canada, I actually don’t think that the… Continue reading
Sorry about missing last week. It’s been a busy time for me, not least because of a big move. One of the unintended perks of packing up is that I got to go through a lot of my trade paperbacks. It also has put a bit of a dent in my disposable income. Add those two together and you get me rereading some of my old books.
That is… Continue reading

It has been well documented that this summer I met one of the greatest minds in comic book history. Stan Lee created some of the greatest fictional characters of the last one hundred years. Spider-Man, Hulk, The Fantastic Four and the Avengers were all created or co-created by him. One of his few missteps from that era was the Uncanny X-Men. It ran 66 issues before they stopped printing new… Continue reading
For a long time, I thought that Vocaloid was an anime because it is a popular cosplay. Then I assumed it was a manga because there is no Vocaloid anime. It turns out that I’m wrong again. Vocaloid is a software program that makes computer-generated singing. There is a voicebank for each digital singer that gives him or her a unique voice.
Since the release of the software, these… Continue reading
