New Godzilla Game Looks Incredible

This trailer for Godzilla, the new game from Bandai Namco coming out next month, looks gorgeous and fills me with lust. I am having a lot of feelings right now about the fact that I don’t own a PS4.

The best day ever

Today has been an amazing day.  Reed and I walked through a gorgeous spring evening to our favorite neighborhood pizza place, sat outside under the oak trees, and followed up some damn good pizza with a special treat; chocolate cake to celebrate the raise I got today!  It really is amazing cake.  We go to this pizza place all the time, but only buy a slice of cake for special occasions. On the walk back we made friends with a very nice cat who got up from its porch, making a squeaky meow the whole while, then plopped down on the sidewalk direclty in front of us and rolled about… Read More

Godzilla Hotel Rooms Opening in Tokyo

The Gracery Hotel in Tokyo is soon to open Godzilla-themed rooms at their location sitting atop the Toho Cinema.  And they look really cool. The Godzilla Room includes a giant claw reaching out of the wall and clutching menacingly towards the bed. The Godzilla View Room is very literal, with an amazing view of the Godzilla statue that bursts upwards out of the Toho Cinema roof: Here’s a street view of that statue (from Cinema Cafe): According to Kotaku, prices will run about $334 US (39,800 yen) on weeknights and $417 US (49,800 yen) on weekends. I really am a little blown away by this. Based on everything I have… Read More

Godzilla: Cataclysm is Really Great

I am really loving this new IDW miniseries, Godzilla: Cataclysm. It’s a post apocalyptic story of life after giant monsters tore down civilization. It’s only four issues, but I find myself hoping that IDW decides to play more in this world. Post apocalyptic fiction AND giant monster fiction? It’s like writer Cullen Bunn‘s muse decided to mix up my very favorite things! Dave Wachter‘s art is fun too.  The monster battles thus far are well choreographed and executed, which I bet is hard to do with (spoiler giant plant tentacles>). If you’re into either great kaiju comics or post apocalypse stories, I highly recommend picking this book. Issues 1 and 2 are currently… Read More

What I read today March 27th

Behold the glory of the Poster Posse’s ‘Godzilla’ fanart project, an interview with Nathan Edmonson, writer of the Marvel comic Black Widow, NASA made a time-lapse video of the unending freak hell winter of 2013-2014, a new Austin-based magazine published my friend Michael Walker’s poetry, Zapier has some great advice about video and email marketing, the shocking revelation that at least one entire demographic doesn’t ‘get’ the most recent Aronofsky film (Noah), and Michael Bay has excavated yet another of my childhood memories from its cold grave in order to create a monster of dubious purpose and quality. Blurrpy: EXCLUSIVE: Poster Posse Project #7 Releases The RAGE With Phase 2 Of… Read More

What I read on Friday

Friday is here.  To celebrate I am including two anecdotes about my day. A coworker showed up with amazing chocolate cupcakes. This makes me self-conscious because I’m planning to get up early tomorrow to make chocolate cupcakes for my boyfriend’s birthday party (but they’re not traditional cake cupcakes, they’re going to be my ridiculous dark chocolate pumpkin bread in cupcake form).  Coworker’s cupcakes have beautiful, perfect, home made frosting in a delightful pink shade balanced with chocolate chips.  My frosting execution tends to look like something about to creep, and leap, that one should generally beware of. Anyways, here’s some marketing stuff, an article on how cool volcanoes are, a… Read More
