Game of Thrones Characters as Magic: The Gathering Cards
People all across the Tumblrverse have been mocking up their own MTG cards based on Game of Thrones characters and the results are pretty epic. Check out some more here and here.
Oooh! I have one!
Daenerys Targaryen 2RRWW Whenever Daenerys Targaryen enters the battlefield or attacks, you may search your library for up to one Dragon and/or one Soldier creature and put them onto the battlefield. They have haste in addition to their other abilities and attack each turn if able. 3/5
Okay, if LEGO can cross over with Harry Potter and DC Comics, then Magic HAS to be able to cross over with Game of Thrones. Make this happen, people!
Albotas Parties With ‘Regular Show’ Creator JG Quintel
Okay, so it was less of a party and more like a phone interview, but it totally felt like a party, so that’s what it will always be in my memories.
Regular Show easily ranks among the upper echelon of greatest cartoons of all time. It airs on Cartoon Network right along the equally radical Adventure Time and has become a hallmark of the station.
Now in its fourth season, the show centers around the mega slackers Mordecai (a blujay) and his best friend Rigby (a raccoon). They work at a park where they get yelled at by their boss (Benson, a gumball machine), seek out advice from the park’s handyman (Skips, an immortal Yeti voiced by Mark Hamill), and fight off monsters, aliens, and other evil things that they accidentally summon/create/piss off. Each episode is a smorgasbord of 80’s action/sci-fi/comedy/geeky goodness with references to everything from Weekend At Bernies to Lemmy Kilmister from Motörhead.
You know, regular, ordinary stuff for a kid’s cartoon.
ALBOTAS: Regular Show has a pretty crazy cast: talking vending machines, ghosts, an old guy with a lollipop for a head. Who would you say is your favorite Character?
JG Quintel: I’d have to go with Mordecai because he’s a lot like me. He’s pretty much who I was in college. Muscle Man makes me laugh too.
Mitch “Muscle Man” Sorrenstein. He doesn’t really get mom jokes.
One of my favorite characters on the show is High Five Ghost, and he also has a brother, Low Fives. I’ve always wanted to know, since they’re ghosts, how did they die?
That’s not something I’ve really thought about yet, but I’m glad people care enough to question it!
Regular Show has lots of video game references. Mordecai and Rigby are often seen playing a Sega Master System and even the episodes themselves feel like video games with almost every episode ending with a boss battle. Is there any chance of a Regular Show video game in the near future?
We’re constantly sharing ideas with Cartoon Network. I’m sure that most people would look the other way but I think there’s a lot of stuff in the show that would translate well to a video game.
Mordecai and Rigby have faced a rogues gallery of bad guys in the show’s four seasons. It was especially awesome to see all the villains come back in the Dr. Whovian season 4 premiere Exit 4B. Do you have a favorite bad dude that stands out among the rest?
I really like GBF (Garret Bobby Ferguson). I think he’s hilarious. It’s funny because, you know, there’s so many cool villains on the show, but most of them just end up dying by the end of the episode, so they’re all just wiped out. When we came up with that episode for the premiere - it was like “Ah! We can bring ‘em all back!” I’m glad that we got to get a little more mileage out of a lot of those villains.
Garret Bobby Ferguson - an evil ex video game champion from outer space based on Billy Mitchel.
What is your secret weapon?
Hrm.. As far as the show goes?
As far as life.
Life? Oh my God! You have to, I guess, just do what you want to do. Don’t worry about what other people what you to do because you just gotta do what makes you happy. I think that translates well into making shows. Just make what you want to see and hopefully people will want to watch it.
Final, and possibly most important question: If you could be any food, what food would you be and why?
Mmm. Mhhhm. Mhhhm. Maybe a hamburger because it has all the essential food groups if the order is made properly and can be quite delicious.
Regular Show: Party Pack DVD is available RIGHT NOW and new episodes air Monday nights on Cartoon Network.
Volcom and Yo Gabba Gabba! have teamed up for a line of clothing and accoessories. To celebrate, they’ve made a music video that will make you feel like you’re on the best kind of drugs. Check it out below.
There’s also a limited edition vinyl print of the song. Man, five-year-olds are into some crazy shit these days.
With our culture’s attention spans shortening by the minute, it seems like TV show theme songs are a dying breed. These days we just get a 5-second title sequence with a quick jingle, or riff, or whatever. Sure, it saves room for more story, but I still miss the crap out of having a catchy theme song welcome me into the arms of the latest episode of my favorite show.
Jimmy Fallon and the cast of Guys With Kids (barf) preformed a medley of just about every great TV theme there is.
BRB. Building a time machine so I can go back to when sitcoms were the shit.
Watch Breaking Bad’s Walter White Turn Into A Complete Jerk In Just 8 Minutes[Spoilers]
YouTube user UltraBrawl made this spectacular spoiler-filled video highlighting all the pivotal moments in AMC’s Breaking Bad and takes us through Walter White’s journey from loving father and chemistry teacher to drug lord bad-ass and complete asshole. Watching this, I’ve realised how easy it is to forget how innocent Cranson’s portrayal ow White was in those earlier seasons. Now he’s just a complete dick.
Kotaku report via Variety that G4 will be rebranded and possibly reformatted early next year. It’s about time. I used to give G4 the benefit of the doubt. Sure, they played the same 20 episodes of the same 10 series, but hey, they didn’t have the same budget as Discovery or History. And then they fired almost the entire staff of The Screen Savers shortly after making them move 300 miles away from home to G4’s new studios. That’s when my suspicions were confirmed. G4 was just a crappy, poorly managed cash in on gaming and tech.
After G4’s decision to destroy The Screen Savers, I never watched another minute of the channel. So maybe they’ve changed since then. Maybe they have some decent shows. But if that’s the case, why are they reformatting? The gaming demographic is huge. HUGE. 18 to 35 year old males are marketing gold. Pulling in an audience on a cable channel aimed at that demographic should not be difficult. It’s about time G4 choked on their own puke and died.
