I Still Play With Dolls: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade Game Figures

First off, they are called action figures, so it’s totally cool. Second, HAVE YOU SEEN THESE FUCKING THINGS?! AMAZING! I didn’t think I could get this excited over some dolls…[cough]…I mean action figures, but these are pretty rad. Last week NECA revealed that they are producing a series of TMNT figures based on the original arcade games. They will apparently be sold in two set. The 1st set being the four turtles and the 2nd being Shredder and three members of the Foot Clan. Sadly, these will apparently be exclusively sold at San Diego Comic Con so the chances of getting your hands on a set are slim at best (even if you are going to said Comic Con). For more on these dream toys you will likely never own, check out the videos below (they are actually pretty great themselves). Enjoy!    

Calling In Sick Tomorrow: 1998 Gruesome Death-Filled Workplace Safety Video

This is a video shot in the late 90s that looks like it was shot in the mid 80s to demonstrate workplace safety. The video titled “Will You Be Here Tomorrow” features all the ways you will likely die at work, be it getting chopped up, gored, crushed, electrocuted, set on fire, your eyeballs poked out, or simply getting hit with a gas canister missile. Ya know, typical 9 to 5 bullshit. The video has some kills that would make a Jason movie proud but will also make you think twice about ever trying to hammer a nail again. So I guess it did it’s job. Enjoy!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle’s Pad Recreated In New York City Apartment, Rentable On Airbnb

Who wants to go splitzies on this with me? That’s right, Paramount has converted a Manhattan 3-bedroom apartment into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle’ pad (that’s their home for those of you who don’t speak awesome). The apartment is to promote the upcoming Ninja Turtles movie and you can even rent the place on AirBnB with complementary pizza delivery. The breakdown is as follows: This high-tech dojo is fully loaded…a glow in the dark basketball court, a retro arcade, more video games with a pretty sweet tv wall…anything for hanging ninja-style. We say no to drugs and alcohol, so none of that in the Lair. But we do say yes to pizza! Just clean up your pizza crusts and don’t break any of Donnie’s equipment. That really gets his Bo staff in a twist. You can have a couple friends drop by to check out the Lair, but Splinter says the upstairs bedrooms are off limits. Don’t even think about inviting more overnight guests! We have neighbors too so keep it chill…try not to bring …

Throwback Thursdays! “Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley

You know what’s crazy about this song? It’s 10 fucking years old! Oh year, summer of 2006 son! So what other notable things happened in the summer of 2006? Um…well…Italy won the World Cup of Soccer and…there was a Pirates of the Caribbean Movie…ah…and I think that’s it. Oh! Mel Gibson made those anti-Semitic comments to those cops when he got a DUI. So there was that too. Enjoy the song!
