Stanton Warriors, Drumattic Twins, Freestylers & more

We love us some comics. We love us some break beats. We also love us some Incredible Hulk (more Avengers movie Hulk than the other movie Hulks, although you’d have to give Lou Ferrigno’s seminal Hulk top billing). What’s the point, you ask?

Throughout its evolution, the boom bap always delivers to our hearts a […]

David Fincher producing the movie of my fanboy dreams

In what is easily my happiest moment of fanboy geekdom since discovering that Space Battleship Yamato (aka Starblazers) movie, it was leaked this week that David Fincher is in the works to make a real to life Gaiking movie. As if that wasn’t enough, the film is being used as a launching pad to start […]
