Ben Affleck’s Batman Will Be ‘Tired And Weary’
While fans have had mixed reactions concerning the announcement of Ben Affleck as the new Batman, one thing’s for certain: this portrayal of the Dark Knight is sure to be unlike any we’ve seen on the silver screen.
'Breaking Bad' Spinoff Prequel Gets The Green Light
Breaking Bad fans rejoice! While the series may be coming to an end, everyone’s favorite cheesy car salesmen of defense attorneys, Saul Goodman, has his own show on the horizon! Variety reports that Better Cal Saul will be an hour-long drama centered around the exploits of Saul Goodman prior to the events of Breaking Bad. Fingers crossed it doesn’t suck, but really, how could it?
Ashton Kutcher Reveals His Real Name And Gives Solid Life Advice In His Damn Good Teen Choice Award Speech
Okay, so I never thought I’d be posting an acceptance speech from the Teen Choice Awards here on Albotas, but it seems like I never gave
Ashton Chris Kutcher enough credit. Dude seems pretty alright.
Some standout lines (which is pretty much the whole speech):
"I believe that opportunity looks a lot like hard work. When I was 13, I had my first job with my dad carrying shingles up to the roof, and then I got a job washing dishes at a restaurant, and then I got a job in a grocery store deli, and then I got a job at a factory sweeping Cheerio dust off the ground. And I’ve never had a job in my life that I was better than. I was always just lucky to have a job. And every job I had was a stepping stone to my next job, and I never quit my job until I had my next job. And so opportunities look a lot like work.”
"The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart, and being thoughtful, and being generous. Everything else is crap, I promise you. It’s just crap that people try to sell to you to make you feel like less. So don’t buy it! Be smart, be thoughtful and be generous."
““Everything around us that we call life was made up of people that are no smarter than you,” And you can build your own things, you can build your own life that other people can live in. So build a life — don’t live one, build one.”
We’re Going to MegaCon
I don’t know how many of our followers are from Florida, but just a heads up to those going to MegaCon 2013: We’re going too. Well, I am at least.
The con’s from March 15th through the 17th in Orlando, Florida. Media guests include Patrick Stewart, Lou Ferrigno, Billy West, Paul Blake, and a handful of other celebrities from Star Wars/Star Trek, and voice actors. Comic book guests include Neal Adams, Jason Adams, Frank Cho, Gail Simone, George Perez, and a TON of others I can’t even list without this being an obnoxiously long post.
So yeah, come out, I’ll see you. I’m taking photos (A giant gallery will come, cosplayers. I promise.) and doing a write-up of the event the week after. I might even take video. Maybe some of you will be in them.
Mila Kunis Is Esquire’s Sexiest Woman In Alive
We’re not entirely sure we agree with this. Perhaps her, Kristina Hendricks, Kate Upton, Miranda Kerr, and Jennifer Lawrence should settle the dispute in a lingerie oil wrestling match. I call dibs on referee duty!
Collection Intervention Premier Tonight at 10
If you’re like me, you have a shameful - shameful - amount of videogames. I’m hoping to feel less guilty about my nerdy materialism after watching the premier of
Sci-Fi’s SyFy’s Collection Intervention. The show follows Elyse Luray as she appraises pop culture memorabilia and then tells you that you might have a problem. It’s on at 10PM Eastern.
