Week of Geek Bonus: Two funny not to post ;)

Couple of things to make you chuckle this weekend.

First, you just can’t escape Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” these days.  That song is everywhere.  You’ve heard it, you’ve heard various parodies, but have you heard it with Death Eaters yet? ‘Cause you’re about to…

The fact that these guys managed to thread “Headwig’s Theme” into the chorus and other places just makes me happy in so many ways.  Bravo all!

Second, Ryan Reynolds posted the first look of him in costume as Deadpool, and it’s *cue three bears reference* juuuuuuust right…

First Look at Ryan Reynolds’ DEADPOOL Costume is Beary Good

The more I look at it, the more I realize there was no other way for Deadpool to make his first official debut than on a bear-skin rug channeling Tom Selleck.  Well done Marvel/Fox!

By the way, they’re currently filming in Vancouver.  And how could they not?  Wade Wilson is Canadian after all!

Stand proud you crazy, sword-wielding, gun-toting, fourth-wall-breaking representative of our nation!  Stand proud!

Now I’m gonna have to try a chimichanga before the movie comes out next February.  I’m not even completely sure what they are…

Random Fandom Presents: Is that…Batman?

You know you’ve seen everything when you find yourself stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic alongside Batman….

Comic conventions, you have to love them. How often would you get to find yourself next to the likes of Batman if it wasn’t for the Cons? Especially since the caped crusader is a very busy guy with places to go, people to see, and cities to save. But it looks like even super heroes deal with the same commuter problems as the rest of us.

So if the Dark Knight gets grid-locked in the Batmobile then what happens to Wonder Woman’s invisible jet when she has to park her plane at the Pearson Airport? That must be a huge clearance to land headache.

Hey guys, how goes the illustrious March Break??  You all having a good time sleeping in?  (and of course, by ‘sleeping in’ I mean staying in bed well into the afternoon….ahhhh, those were the days!!  Le sigh, last time I got to do that I had mono and that was decidedly less than enjoyable.)

Annnywho, yeah!  March Break!!  Huazzah!  And then the bad news – it’s Thursday…meaning it’s almost Friday….meaning it’s almost the weekend – and of course – that means, it’s almost Monday and you got back to school again.  So sad.

Well, chins up!  All that really means is it’s that much closer to summer!!! =D

Annnd, speaking of summer, what are your plans?  Anyone thinking of getting ready for a job?  Either a summer job or something of a more permanent/non-seasonal nature?    I just got a lovely little note in my email today from a friend that there is going to be a student job fair next week Wednesday (March 25) from 3:30-5:30pm.

COSTI, in partnership with Employment Ontario and United Way are hosting the event…instructions are to dress for an interview as they will be done on-site.
Address: 7800 Jane St.
Tel: 905-669-5627 

job fair 2015

Sooooo, yeah.  Want a job?  Seems like a good place to start!! =D

And in the meantime, enjoy the last few days of your lovely break….

Greetings once again Geeklings!

Sorry for the Radio Silence.  Been off the last couple of weeks.  But just because I take a vacay doesn’t mean the rest of the world does.  So, since I’m sure you’re all busy settling in to March Break fun and whatnot, allow me to quickly throw a bunch of stuff at you.

New trailers (yay!).  We’ve got Tomorrowland

Inside Out

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Hotel Transylvania 2

Netflix’s Daredevil series …

And in theatres right now there’s the one-two punch of Cinderella

And the short preceding it, Frozen Fever

*whew!*  CAN YOU HANDLE IT PEOPLE!

‘Course you can!  Have fun this week and stay tuned for more fan-related news heading your way smile face icon

Animation Station: Foxy Animation in 2D

-_-….o_-…o_O…O_O!!!!!!

Colour? Anthromorphic characters? Music? Flare? Is that 2D hand drawn animation?

*jaw drops with a clang*

For the love of cheese toast and fries! I haven’t seen something like this since…since…before Pixar won all the Oscars! It’s so beautiful. I can’t even right now. Just let me love this on repeat!

The animator and her team made this amazing video….for fun.

My mind is just blown away by the amount of time, effort, frustration and creativity that went into creating this little slice of heaven. I can’t stand the Kesha music video but this one makes me want to get up and dance through the stacks flipping my hair like I just don’t care. Such emotion, energy, and motion. And it’s all hand drawn!

Now I need to watch favourite old school 2D animation of my youth. Like Treasure Planet, Lilo & Stitch, Anastasia, Animaniacs, Land Before Time, and The Last Unicorn. Also check out The Secret Of Kells to witness the new evolution of beautiful 2D animation. It will astound you.
