Friday LinkFrogging - 11/12/10

Dr. Bruce and Stephe are en route to Austin Comic Con, where the streets will soon run with Geeky effluent of all manner. It's cool though. I'm saving myself for full immersion at the big one (San Diego) and the good doctor left a little prezzie behind, a visual representation of one of the Austin event's fairer participants, Torrie Wilson. Wilson entered this world  in Boise, Idaho, and became a successful female body-builder before moving to L.A. to -- all togthe...

I don't know about you, but my best ideas usually look a lot different when I finalize them than they did when I came up with them. This website is case in point. I've known for nearly a decade I wanted to create a space for my creative, like-minded friends and I to air our thoughts.  That vision went through several iterations, including, for a fleeting moment, thoughts of starting a magazine. Upon further research, I quickly came to realize we didn't have the financial r...

How the hell did it get to be November already? Before you know it we'll be gorging ourselves on turkey. Then it will be Black Friday and that can only lead to Christmas. Wow. But I'm getting ahead of myself. This week we saw a typhoon of voter unhappiness turn control of the US House of Representatives over to the Republicans. We saw the Dallas Cowboys lose...AGAIN! We saw the "final" Saw movie top the box office. We saw the San Francisco Giants win the Wor...

GonzoGeek to Cover Austin Comic Con

Stephe and I have attended the Texas Wizard World Conventions every year since their inception. Those conventions have historically been held in Arlington, Texas. That was until last year when they cancelled the Con altogether.  This year, Wizard got back on the horse and moved the Con to Austin, Texas. We're going again, and, for the second time, we're going as media.  That's right, GonzoGeek will be there to cover it all for you. "We are pleased to return to Te...

Web of AN.G.EL.S - the review

David Stellfox, Ex British Service turned Assassin has been chosen to correct the catastrophic ending to the Red War between America and China.  Using the Sugar Effect; an experimental method of Time Travel, Stellfox has been sent back in time to seek and destroy the mysterious Chinese General, Mah-He and his three bodyguards known as "The Three" before they can attack the White House and force America into surrender.

So reads the press release I received in August announcing the arrival of this new digital comic from Diomedes Productions.

Since then, Diomedes has had some problems delivering their comic.  They have, at every step, been honest with their press contacts and let us know about the delays.  So, I was very excited last week when I got the email telling me that the book was finally available for review.

I downloaded the book and gave it a read.

Friday LinkFrogging - 10/29/10

Its almost Halloween.

As Count Floyd would say "Ohhh...spooky kids."

Seriously, is there a better holiday than Halloween.  You get to dress up in a costume and, depending on your predilictions and/or guts, live out your fantasies, all while begging for food.

Think about it, if the guy under the freeway with the cardboard sign rang your doorbell on November 1st, you'd call 9-1-1.  He does it one night before?  He's a really authentic looking (and smelling) hobo.  Here, have some bite size Snickers.

Hell, you might even ask him to pose with your kids for a picture.

But, if there is anything we learned from the Firefly family, its that its not necessarily the scary hobos you have to look out for.

And with that rather ham-fisted segue, please say hello to this week's cheesecake, Sherri Moon Zombie.

Sherri is probably best known for her work as Baby Firefly in House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects.  She also starred as the mother of Michael Myers in Rob's two "reimagined" Halloween movies.

She's laid pretty low since Halloween II, but after serving as Rob Zombie's wife and white trash muse for the last decade, we thought she'd be the perfect cheesecake for Halloween this year.

Friday LinkFrogging - 10/22/10

I, your humble editor, have a confession to make.

When I sat down to compile this week's list of links, I had no cheesecake.  That, dear reader(s) is a first.  I usually have the pick made by Monday with at least an inkling of what I'm going to write about.

This week, nothing.

None of the new movies moved me.  We've used a lot of the current TV stars.  I have a "do not use" list that includes Kardashians and Lohans.

I was listening to Prince's LotusFlow3r CD today and one of the tracks reminded me of "Batdance."  This, of course, got me thinking ofVicki Vale herself, Kim Basinger.

My wife mentioned that Bob Guccione died this week.  Looking for links to Bob is a risky internet search kids.  It did, however, remind me that Helen Mirren was in Caligula.

In the end, I decided to go with Anne Hathaway.

Why?

Well, last week was Stephe's birthday.  Stephe has a thing for Ms. Hathaway and I forgot to use her last week as I planned to.

Simple really.

Maybe I overthink these things.

Friday LinkFrogging - 10/15/10

Welcome to the weekend dear reader(s).

I don't know about you, but I could use a drink, or two, or three.

But I digress.

If its a weekend in the fall that means sports.  Lots and lots of sports.

Like football?  You've got NCAA and NFL to choose from.

Baseball?  MLB League Championship play begins this weekend.

MMA?  UFC 120 is on Saturday night.

You know what I forgot about?  High school football.

Okay, that's a brutal segue, I'll admit it.

That's right, the proverbial friday night lights get us to this week's cheesecake.  Say hello to Minka Kelly.

This week Ms. Kelly was named the "sexiest woman alive" by Esquire magazine.  Judging by the photo above, they may be on to something.

Ms. Kelly is perhaps most famous for her role as a cheerleader on Friday Night Lights (see what I did there?) and for being Derek Jeter's main squeeze.  No wonder Jeter doesn't seem to grip quite as hard as A-Rod this time of year.

Ms. Kelly is currently plying her craft as Gaby,the autism counselor, on NBC's Parenthood.

And just in case you forgot who Ms. Kelly took the crown from, let's take a trip to last year in the GonzoGeek Way Back Machine

Friday LinkFrogging - 10/8/10

Welcome back kids.

Another week in the books.  With them came the MLB playoffs.  Roy Halladay threw a no-hitter in the first game of the Phillies' series with the Reds.  That's gotta sting.  The Yankees are doing their annual pummeling of the Twins.  And, the Rangers are 9 innings away from eliminating the (Devil) Rays.

Sorry Matt.

Oh yeah, and Randy Moss got traded from the Patriots to the Vikings.  Let's see if this makes Moss a better receiver and/or Brett Favre a better QB.

It's a mad, mad, mad world kids.

Speaking of madness, say hello to this week's cheesecake, Christina Hendricks.

Ms. Hendricks plays Joan, the real power behind the throne, on AMC's critically acclaimed Mad Men.  She also showed up for a couple of episodes of GonzoGeek favorite, Life, to bedevil Adam Arkin.

While I'm a latecomer to the Mad Men party, I have to say the show is growing on me.  There is something watching the ugliness under the 60s version of the American Dream.  My wife and I are playing catch up thanks to Netflix whilst our trusty DVR collects season 4 for us.

As if that wasn't enough geek cred for Ms. Hendricks, she was recently cast as the voice of Superman's main squeeze, Lois Lane, in an upcoming DC animated movie.

And earlier this week, it was revealed, to nobody's real suprise that Ms. Hendricks' appeal hits all the demographics.  Everyone, it seems, digs a curvy redhead.
