  1. wonderful geekery…that guardians of the galaxy article is pretty bad. lots of mistakes. Its almost like they made mistakes on purpose.

    • It seems corrections have been made already about GotG…

      • Your right….that improves the article which is now pretty good.

  2. Louis CK always gets me.

    • @Al and he’s 100% right too, geez, I don’t understand people now-a-days. You see them out with friends and all of them are ignoring each other tapping away at their slabs of glass…

      • It’s curious and disturbing: people who have no context to place an experience in until it’s captured safely on a crummy video clip and vomited onto a social network for someone else to make it real.

  3. Hello,

    I would like to say that the minion heroes are improperly credited. Someone stitched together the minions for use on instagram without my permission. I have no problem with you posting my work on this website, but I would appreciate if my work is properly credited. You can find proof on my tumblr where they were originally posted and my website.


    Thank you!

    • Sorry about that, Kevin! It’s been fixed.

  4. If Sam Rockwell had a dance studio, I would totally sign up

  5. Went to see despicable me today ( loved it, the jokes are all there for the adults) and when we got back I ask the boy to draw his fav super heroes as Minions. Totally got the idea from you Kevin, we had a blast nice one mate.
