    Two Angry Robots "Addictions" Podcast

    In our latest podcast we take a humorous (promise!) look at "Addictions".

    We get angry at change room wookies and speedos, discuss the heavy ($23 quadrillion!!) costs of smoking, come clean about our addictions to Chuck Taylors and coffee (amongst other things) and attempt our first telephonic intervention … with horrible results.

    What would Amy Winehouse do if she was shipwrecked? Whose addiction to Nintendo Wii is killing the podcast dream? What makes me absolutely lose it at my podcasting partner in crime?

    Listen in here & find out!

    Two Angry Robots "Superheroes" Podcast

    My latest podcast (number seven) takes flight, with a superheroes theme!

    We get angry about the worst super powers of all time, encourage bus-related vigilantism, laugh at some real-life superheroes (including a flying nun & a trio of glue-wielding she-devils) and discuss the world’s most amazing politician: Vladimir Putin.

    Who is the mysterious vigilante "The Spear"? Why isn't invisibility all it's cracked up to be? Why is Mr. Fantastic ironically named (okay, that's an easy one)?

    Head over to the Two Angry Robots website and listen in!

    Comic Factoid of the Day

    Greetings Amazing Spider-Fans! Over the years, Norman Osborn, aka. The Green Goblin, has asserted himself as Spidey's #1 foe.

    However, Stormin' Norman isn't the only Goblin to have wailed on the webslinger. In total, there have been five Green Goblins, one Grey Goblin, one Demogoblin and five Hobgoblins (and that's all just in standard Marvel continuity)!

    For a paranoid criminal mastermind, Norman hasn't really done a bang up job with the "security" on those "secret" labs of his.

    Maybe he should just save everyone the four seconds it obviously takes to break into one of his incredibly secret lairs (now in 472 convenient locations) and just release the shit to the general public in energy drink form.

    Goblin Juice: The real demon in a bottle.
    (You'd have to be criminally insane not to drink it.)

    Comic Factoid of the Day

    Superman's repertoire of powers have changed a lot in the 71 years since he first appeared in Action Comics #1.

    His repertoire of powers once included: the power to change his face using superhuman control of his face muscles, the power of super-ventriloquism and the power of super-hypnosis!

    True story. Now, I love comics as much as the next (nerdy) guy but seriously, super-ventriloquism? The Man of Steel is awesome but the Man of Dubious Entertaining Skills is most certainly not. Give me the kryptonite, I'll put Supertool down myself.

    Manslation: Date Night

    I was speaking to a female friend the other day who was looking forward to a first date with a young man she'd met earlier. She was trying hard not to freak out over what he might be expecting, what she should wear, etc and I had to remind her not to overthink things - men are simple creatures.

    Ladies, when you go to meet a man on your first date, here is what you might be thinking:
    I hope he's nice, if he's nice I hope he likes me, should I have worn the dress instead, I wonder what the food's going to be like, these shoes are hurting me but they look great, he better not be sleazy, did I send that e-mail before I left work, what was that new anti-cancer compound they mentioned in the paper today, and so forth.

    Because you are complicated creatures, at this point you are probably assuming that he is thinking similar things to you, except maybe the bit about the dress.

    Hahaha. He isn't. Here is a visual representation of what he's thinking:

    And that's pretty much it. Note I'm not saying that you need to show more cleavage for the date to go well. Relax! Manslation: If he turns up, he's interested! You don't need to worry what he's thinking about ... because he isn't.

    Legion: Holy Hell!

    Holy (hehe). Fkn. Shit. This film looks awesome. In fact, if "awesome" and "holy shit" had a baby raised by action/horror movies, this is what it would look like. If you like films in which angels & demons battle it out for the fate of mankind, of course. Which I do. This is what Angels & Demons SHOULD have been about instead of a massive conspiracy that strangely involved only two people and a bunch of cryptic crossword puzzles. Damn you, Ron Howard!

    Watch and salivate, fellow geeks! Ummm... maybe don't let the kids watch this trailer. Ummm... and any particularly Christian peoples might want to avoid it too. Wheee!

    Legion stars Paul Bettany, Dennis Quaid, Kate Walsh and a host of Angelic cannon fodder and is set for release on January 10th, 2010. Can't wait!

    P.S. Hehehe ... this post title is so puntastic it's crazy! Man, I make myself laugh sometimes with my own hilarity. Sigh. Sorry.
