THE PREPOSTEROUS BOLLOX OF THE SITUATION

A collection of stuff, things, nonsense, rants, raves, pretties, sillies, and gee-gaws from Rev. Hugo Nebula, Ordained Minister of the Church of the SubGenius. (And boobs. Sometimes there are boobs. Just like in real life.) Thank you for reading.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Annual 2014 First Look

(via santolouco)

"Determining when a character has been whitewashed is, in theory, a rather simple task.  Specifically, it’s a matter of asking oneself:

  • "Was Character X established as a Person of Color in the original work?
  • "Has an adaptation of that work changed Character X so that they are now White instead?

"If the answer to both is “yes”, then whitewashing has occurred.

"Of course, reality has ways of taking the simplest of tests and adding a whole bunch of complications along the way.  For example, what if the answer to sub-question one is “yes and no”?  This is the case with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ April O’Neil, a character who had no established heritage aside from her last name of Irish origin, and whose looks could change rather drastically between appearances, because apparently, her creators–Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird–had different ideas, and never  definitively settled the question while they were working together.

"Because people are complicated, there are a lot of differing opinions about this matter, most with at least some evidence backing them up. Hence, this series, chronicling the many looks she’s had, beginning with the moment of her creation and taking us all the way to 2014, where she is set to appear on the big screen once again, this time played by Megan Fox.  The idea is not to argue for any particular conclusions–although I do have my own opinions on the matter–but simply to allow people to come to their own.  Plus, I like timelines, I really like seeing the visual evolution of a concept, and I think that April’s is, in particular, really interesting…"

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Trailer #2.

TURTLE POWER: THE DEFINITIVE HISTORY OF THE TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES. Own it on DIGITAL HD and DVD August 12

"In the spring of 1984, a strange new comic book sat beside cash registers in select shops, too big to fit in the racks, and too weird to ignore. Eastman and Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles presented a completely original breed of super hero. It was too bizarre, too crazy. It broke all the rules and should never have worked. Until it sold out. Again and again and again. For 30 years. Now, peek under the shell and see how this so-called “happy accident” defied every naysayer to become one of the most popular and beloved franchises in the world…."

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES - Official Trailer (2014) [HD] (by CBMTrailers)

"Kevin Eastman And Peter Laird Collaborate On New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cover."

(Via Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors)

"After a little back and forthing, we settled on Leonardo and Donatello, because no one was willing to give up on Michelangelo and somehow Raphael got pulled into the bitter dispute too. But that’s fine. Leonardo can lead all he wants, without Donatello doing machines… you know what? We don’t need to get into this again. It’s honestly fine…

"I’ll concede here that I perhaps added to tensions by shouting “Booyakasha!” and “Cowabunga” every time I moved my game piece. That was my fault. I’ve learned a lesson from that and I’d say that I’m unlikely to do it again."

This entire review is hilarious.
