Pasties! There… Now that thats out of the way (dusts off hands). Matthew Jones from The Noob News interviews Black Mariah, burlesque dancer and master costume & pastie craftsman, on the finer points of Inter-Woman politics, why geeks are avoiding free panty catalogues, and electric light-up bacon sandwhiches.

Over the next couple of weeks we are going to take a look at some of the talented comic writers and artists we spent time with at Staple-Austin over the past weekend. We had a great time meeting and interviewing these guys and girls and want to give you a chance to check out some of their work. Tim Doyle is a artist who is well know for his poster designs and graphic art work as well as his work on The Intergalactic Nemesis. You can find more of his work at mrdoyle.com as well as anywhere you’ve seen a movie poster and gone “Wow, I’ve never seen a movie poster this awesome, did the studio make this?” More than likely they didn’t and it was Tim Doyle’s work you were drooling over.
I was just discussing last week with fellow noob Kevin Minke how their weren’t any games on my radar that I was really looking forward to playing. It’s that slow time of year when all the good games dropped over the holiday and nothings really good is gonna come out for a while and it’s probably the worst time of year to be a video game geek. But that quickly changed today when this little beauty was dropped on me like a ton of bricks. I don’t want to speak in hyperbole but this thing looks pretty awesome. We’ve had a lot of games come out lately with zombies, some good, some bad, but none perfect. They all seem to lacking a bit of heart, a reason to want to survive and the trailer to this game really feels like it may have hit that nail on the head. Granted it is (i assume) cinematic game footage not actual game play but I really like the whole family vacation gone wrong feel. I look forward to playing this when it drops and letting you know how good it actually is…
“Dead Island is an open world video game in development by Techland for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, scheduled for a 2011 release. It is centered on the challenge of survival on a zombie-infested island. Dead Island will focus primarily on melee combat, with firearms and ammo being extremely scarce.
On the 2nd episode of The Noob News’ VHS HELL (with Matthew Jones), we take a long hard look at the Ray Dennis Steckler opus BLOOD SHACK a.k.a. CURSE OF THE EVIL SPIRIT a.k.a THE CHOOPER a.k.a. THE BLOOD MONSTER a.k.a. “THE BEST WORST MOVIE EVER FUCKING MADE”!
There was a lot of hype and hyperbole leading up to Kevin Smith’s premiere of Red State at Sundance and all that quickly became an afterthought when Smith told Hollywood to go fuck itself and bought his own distribution right for 20$. Smith had announced earlier in the year that he would auction of the rights to his movie directly after the premiere and drew a ton of interest for what was sure to be a public spectacle and did not disappoint.
When can you see Red State? Well if you’re willing to shell out anywhere from
Looks like we won’t have to wait long to see Mel Gibson’s return to the big screen. His much anticipated film “The Beaver” hits theaters in limited release on Wednesday, March 23, 2011. It will be interesting to see if he can regain his popularity by playing a sympathetic character after being shown in the media in a very unsympathetic light over the past few months. Only time will tell.
The Beaver – Wed 3/23/11 Limited
Director: Jodie Foster
Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin & Jennifer Lawrence
Synopsis: Two-time Academy Award
According to screenterriers.com The final bit of re-shoots for the forthcoming final chapter in the Harry Potter saga has concluded and with that comes a bit of interesting casting news.
Up first is Ben Clarke who has apparently been cast as a young Severus Snape for the purpose of flash backs and back story. Not a bad choice I guess. Looks a lot like Snape, same hair and facial features. We’ll see how well he plays the nerdy younger version of Snape who once crooned for Potter’s mother in his childhood but ultimately lost out to her to the much more dashing James Potter.
Ben Clarke as Young Severus Snape…
now the spoilery stuff
Bertie Gilbert has been cast as Scorpius Malfoy(the son of Draco Malfoy), who appears in the final chapter of the book which takes place many years after the final battle. In this chapter of the book, quite a few of the main characters of the story have ventured back to Kings Crossing to send their children off to Hogwarts and do a little catching up around platform 9 and 8/4ths. It will be interesting to see if this ending stays the same or is adjusted to allow for future sequels not based on books (which has long been the rumor about town). Either way it gives us something to look forward to after the lackluster Deathly Hallows pt 1.
