"The Walking Dead" Season Four Comic-Con Trailer: I Got My Fist, I Got My Plan, I Got Survivalism | Jesse and the Rippers Perform 'The Full House' Theme on Fallon, Blow the Roof Off the Dump





Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned


  • Less Lee Moore

    Thank you for all the Hannibal love!

  • "Because Somehow .."

    Tumblr.

  • Battereddaisy

    Fuck yeah, Mulder and Scully! I would kill to see them together WITH all those yummy yummy writers (might have been watching too much Hannibal). Also how cool is it that they are both still/again A class television stars.

  • googergieger

    As a San Diegan that has been going to Comic Con since three or so years ago, Comic Con died the year after Park Chan Wook went to promote Thirst. The year after that, it has been complete and utter shite. Commercialized? Sold out? Mainstream? Don't know really. Just know every year fewer and fewer actual nerds go.

  • foolsage

    Comic-Con used to be about... comics. I miss those days.

    Hey, someone get those damned kids off my lawn. Sigh.

  • googergieger

    Used to find a shitload of random comics and get a ton of foreign dvd's there. I remember like six or seven years ago, I just accidentally ran into Brian Azzarello and had like an hour long conversation with him that started with me telling him, he is the reason I got into comics. Two days later I stumble upon Brian Wood and just hang out with him at his booth talking shit. Heck even when it was getting kind of crowded and a bit mainstream, I remember when Warren Ellis finally made his Comic Con return he had an awesome panel and I got his autograph on my Fell poster, and I ran into Ben Templesmith who became huge after 30 Days of Night got picked up, and he signed the poster too and he sparked up a random convo with me. These last few years actual comic book authors/artists/whatever would probably love for a fan to stumble across them so they would have something to do, but you have to fight your way through miles of mouth breathers who experience the entirety of comic con through their phones and go there to see trailers to shitty expensive movies, and occasionally spend money on the comics/toys from said shitty expensive movies, simply because they are there and need have something to take a picture of and upload to twitter, otherwise how on earth would people know if they had a good time or not?!

    FUCK YOU COMIC CON! FUCK YOU FAUX NERD MOUTH BREATHING SPACE WASTERS! I WANT MY COMIC CON BACK!

    Or, I could just stay home and dick around on the computer with my nerdtivities and then fall asleep listening to Alan Watts lectures/books on tape. Either way, really.

  • foolsage

    Alan Watts really had a gift for explaining abstruse philosophical concepts in a simple and elegant manner. The latter option you presented sounds a lot more appealing to me, personally, though I read rather than listen by preference.

  • googergieger

    I can't read myself to sleep, cause I'll just stay up reading until I finish. Not to mention when I read it is my own emotionless monotone voice blaring in my head, reminding me I'm just the most useless kind of sociopath.

  • foolsage

    Fair enough. Books have kept me up many nights as well.

  • John W

    Mulder and Scully age better than wine.

  • The Miles Morales cosplay is SOOO GOOD. If anyone knows who that dude is, point me to his cosplay page.

  • Jerce

    I'm steamed because I can't watch the Hannibal bloopers because my work computer has no sound.
    DAMN YOU, EMPLOYMENT! DAMN YOU, NEED FOR FOOD AND SHELTER!

  • BabyBearStrikesAgain

    After every SDCC I say I'll get tickets and go next year, and every year I don't go. This hurts my nerdy heart, but I have very valid reasons 1) money 2) SO MANY PEOPLE 3) the lines 4) the smell.

  • foolsage

    I used to attend Comic-Con but it's just too crowded these days. Points #2-4 really all refer back to #2.

  • apsutter

    Cary Elwes is aging so strangely. And Gillian is fucking gorgeous

  • lowercase_ryan

    WAIT!!!!!!!!!

    BUDDY LAWYER CHICK SHOW WITH JENNIFER CARPENTER AND YVONNE STAHOSPELLEDWRONG!

    Franklin and Bash meets the Good Wife!!

  • Maguita NYC

    Oh no! I got lowercase_ryan on a sugar high.

  • lowercase_ryan

    ALL YOUR FAULT!

  • Maguita NYC

    hehehehe.

    Hey, let's freak Nateman with some dolls.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Where is that NVA...smells like trouble.

  • Maguita NYC

    I believe after those... cuddly dolls, I deserve the title of NVA for the day.

  • lowercase_ryan

    lmao

  • Bea Pants

    I thought Wheaton and/or Whedon was the King of Geekdom.

  • foolsage

    Neil is our Writer. Joss is our Director. Wil is our Actor*. They are Three, yet they are One. Long live the King!

    * This role ritually rotates among several people, to keep the cycle of the seasons moving properly, and to ensure a bountiful harvest.

  • Bea Pants

    As a lapsed Catholic I full grasp the concept of a Holy Trinity.

  • luthien26

    And Fillion is our Clown Prince. :)

  • Fabius_Maximus

    You mean the King's Fool?

  • Ruthie O

    Holy man thighs. That fan definitely does legs day.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Who's the guy next to David Guintoli?

  • JoannaRobinson

    Tyler Posey. "Teen Wolf." Tumblr was FLOODED with that kid this morning. I told you the flower crowns were a thing. http://such-a-mistery.tumblr.c...

  • foolsage

    I didn't recognize him at all with the facial hair. Huh. Kid's growing up.

  • NateMan

    My misanthropic nature would come screaming out of me after waiting in line for an hour, let alone the 5+ it takes to get into these places; still, it seems like a hell of a good time. Hope everyone has a lot of fun.

  • Maguita NYC

    Oh Nateman, you and your misanthropic nature, makes me feel all cuddly. Little cute doll cuddly.

  • lowercase_ryan

    sweet shit how did you make a doll cry?

  • NateMan

    You tell it to stop eating souls.

  • Maguita NYC

    I took away her pizza.

  • lowercase_ryan

    This is actually in my uncles office, I just went and took this pic now.

  • Bodhi

    Now that I know the teeth are real, that.... thing... is gonna haunt my dreams

  • foolsage

    The tongue is also real…

    * backs away slowly, giggling madly *

    Pleasant dreams!

  • Bodhi

    Meanie.

    Also, AHHHHHHH

  • Maguita NYC

    You can't take that exit ma'm. There is something blocking the way out.

  • emmalita

    AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! Holy Future Psychopath! Did somebody give that to a child to play with? *runs away to make more pie crust*

  • Maguita NYC

    This explains Joffrey Baratheon's childhood so well!

  • NateMan

    A doll with vagina dentata! Wow, I didn't think they could be even creepier.

  • Maguita NYC

    Is that what they mean by man-eater?

  • lowercase_ryan
  • Maguita NYC

    Woohooo, EXACTLY. *snapping fingers to rhythm.

    Damn that saxophone, and it is raining right now where I live. Sheer perfection!

    Thks lc_ryan!

  • lowercase_ryan

    My pleasure

  • Maguita NYC

    Wait... You're home already?

    Did I just spend a full hour looking at my nails?

  • lowercase_ryan

    I was going to putz around and pretend I had stuff to do, but it feels to good just sitting here doing nothing.

  • Maguita NYC

    Awesome. I'm making pasta, so I'll check in with a dirty joke here and there.

  • foolsage

    Good call. That sounds just about my speed right now.

    Righto. Time to close this thing down and send everyone here home early.

    No, not you folks. You can never leave.

  • lowercase_ryan

    You guys should all really join the Facebook group. Conversations are much easier to follow. Smoke is coming out of my tablet trying to navigate this thread.

  • Maguita NYC

    My FB is stuck in confirmation hell. As soon as it gets confirmed, I'll send you smoke signals so you can show me the way, and admit me into that new kinda addicting hell.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Deal. Then we'll work on getting your van cleaned out.

  • foolsage

    Doubtful. Look at that cuticle there; you didn't mean to leave it like that did you?

  • Maguita NYC

    My mind is not that strong. I was just staring at them.

  • Maguita NYC

    What was?

  • lowercase_ryan

    that doll. Can you not see the pic?

  • foolsage

    Is that a trick question?

  • Maguita NYC

    No. Is she your imaginary doll?
    (EDIT: We weren't crazy, the picture did not show in lowercase_ryan's comment at the time. Damn it Disqus).

  • foolsage

    I can neither confirm nor deny insanity on my part or that of my fellow commentators. However, the picture wasn't there at the time of our earlier comments.

    Which is to say, we weren't crazy IN THAT MANNER.

    We now return to the 1962 classic, "Amazon Women on the Moon", starring Buzzy Clark and Greta Van Sant. There will be no further commercial interrupt...

  • lowercase_ryan
  • Maguita NYC

    Hhhhhhhhhh....... What the fuck is that?

  • lowercase_ryan

    a doll my grandmother had. That's all I know. Seriously. Now my uncle keeps it in his office.

    Also.....

    I think the teeth are real :/

  • NateMan

    I have entirely forgotten what we were discussing.

  • lowercase_ryan

    we were discussing something?

  • foolsage

    Of course we were discussing something!

    So... should the Fed be pursuing a contractionary fiscal policy? Really, the question comes down to whether you believe we're up against the zero lower bound and are thus caught in a liquidity trap. After all, the short term interest rates are incredibly low, which supports Krugman's hypothesis.

    Or at least that's what this doll keeps whispering into my ear…

    http://hondurangoddess.files.w...

  • lowercase_ryan

    and I'm off work, see you guys in an hour after I get home and realize I have nothing to do there either.

  • foolsage

    Stay classy!

  • lowercase_ryan

    That's a new one. I like it.

  • foolsage

    I invented it myself just now. Ignore any evidence to the contrary and accept my assurances that nobody else has ever used that phrase. If any such evidence exists, that's conclusive proof of time travel.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I meant new to me.

  • foolsage

    I am in a terribly silly mood today. Clarity of communication comes in a distant second to amusing myself, I fear.

  • Maguita NYC

    Laters!

  • NateMan

    I feel like we must have been. But I lost it.

    Hey, watch this kickass video of Britanick interviewing the Much Ado About Nothing cast I just found. It's great.
    http://www.britanick.com/video...

  • NateMan

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

    You evil bitch...

  • Maguita NYC

    Moi?

  • Salieri2

    Jesus Christ!

  • NateMan

    Yes, you! Who else, this chick?

    http://www.wpclipart.com/famou...

  • Maguita NYC

    Still Badass.

    And you know why, because she was hiding THESE in her basement. (She could actually give TK a lesson or two).

  • NateMan

    The only thing hiding in her basement is these.

    http://img.webmd.com/dtmcms/li...

  • Maguita NYC

    BALLS OF BRASS!

  • NateMan

    Balls of man meat, Rocky Mountain Oyster style.

  • lowercase_ryan
  • NateMan

    Don't help!

  • Maguita NYC

    Help more! More! Dick in her pants my ass.

  • NateMan

    Is the dick in her pants or your ass?

  • foolsage

    No, no, it's the "dick" in her (i.e. the antisocial tendencies) that will cause her to "pants my ass" (i.e. lower Maguita's pants in an effort to cause public embarrassment).

  • Maguita NYC

    Well thank goodness you explained it Foolsage, because I was starting to feel uncomfortable, and who wouldn't with a you-know-what up their emergency exit.

  • foolsage
  • Maguita NYC

    Not up to Archer references yet, give it a week or two.

  • NateMan

    See, and this is why every group needs a grammar Nazi. Someone has to parse this shit out.

  • foolsage

    Ordnung muss sein!

  • lowercase_ryan

    the two aren't mutually exclusive I suppose...

  • Maguita NYC

    Woaa there nateman. Keeping it friendly.

  • NateMan

    Well I assumed it'd only be with a friend. :)

  • Guest

    .

  • NateMan

    I didn't have to, I got centipeded right in the eye.

  • Bert_McGurt

    I guess they call that one the INhuman Centipede?
