Troll Dolls: The Movie. Seriously.

Wizard-troll-dollRemember those hideous looking Troll dolls from the '60's?  Troll Dolls, Leprocauns, Dam Dolls, Gonks, Wishniks, Treasure Trolls, or Norfins?  Ugly little bastards, is what they were.  An ugly fad that never seemed to go away completely.  They made comebacks in every subsequent decade, for some reason, but they never got any cuter.  But they were just dolls.  Dolls made to scare the bejesus out of kids for no particular reason. 

Their decades-long trendiness is apparently enough to warrant a movie deal.

Flashback Friday - Smurfette Syndrome

Smurfette  Today's Flashback is brought to you by a major bee in my bonnet. A lot of television shows geared at children, particularly in the 80s, featured one single female character. It's amazing, as a child, that I didn't develop the mistaken impression that men actually outnumbered women in the world 8 to 1 or something. Today, we reflect on some token females in children's television of yore.

For $16,000 You Can Look Like Jessica Rabbit - Sort Of

Annette-jessica_rabbit_makeover Annette Edwards has always loved Jessica Rabbit. Okay, maybe not always, but certainly since 1988.

What do you do when you adore and admire a cartoon character? Get a tattoo? Buy an original drawing? Oh, hell no. That is weak. You get plastic surgery to look like her. Duh.

Comedy Central Censors South Park Because Of Death Threats From Nerds Posing As Muslims

Trey-Parker_Matt-Stone South Park has a long history of insulting religions because religious people are funny when they're mad. If religious people weren't so funny when they get all frothy and sputtery, South Park wouldn't make fun of them. But that's just not going to happen. For example, South Park pissed off some Muslims who want the creators dead. Like, dead dead. Because of a fucking cartoon. Yay monotheism!

Flashback Friday: Oregon Trail and Early Signs of Nerdery

Yay-Dysentary-Oregon-Trail  We were all abuzz in second grade when a new class was added to our usual rotation of gym, library, music, recess: computer class.  As a seven year old, this was big.  And also as a seven year old, I didn't know what in the damn hell a computer even was.  I wasn't entirely sold on the idea until Mrs. Bergmann introduced to us what would end up, for me, being equivalent to a glittery unicorn jumping through a rainbow whilst a shooting star falls in the sky.  IT WAS A BIG DEAL.  I learned at seven years old the power of addiction; the power of a computer or video game that would just not let you win.  "But I will win," you would mutter, feeling a white-hot rage consume you, "I will beat you at your own game." (Pun.)
