I have never gone to a “big time” film festival before. Fantastic Fest in Austin will be my first. I plan to help AintItCool.com cover it with video updates (reviews, interviews, etc.) all week long starting on Thursday, September 22. On the first night, I will be attending the world premiere of Human Centipede 2 (not really looking forward to watching it). The rest of the week, I’ll be seeing films with names like Juan of the Dead, ManBorg, Infernal Nuns, Invasion of Alien Bikini and Karate Robo Zaborgar… pure AWESOME! If you want follow me throughout the week, check out the Youtube channel where I’ll be uploading all of my videos, my Twitter account or AintItCool.com.
For those of you who don’t know, I really like action figures. I like them so much, I decided to create a web show, website, Facebook page and Twitter account that talks strictly about action figures. I’ve been doing this for the last 2 1/2 years, partly because I think toys are interesting and partly as a way to learn how to communicate better using social media. Sunday afternoon on a total whim, I sent an email to one of my favorite websites, AintItCool.com. The creator of the website, Harry Knowles has built a small internet empire through his pop culture blog. You know you’ve made it when your portrayed by Rainn Wilson on an episode of Entourage or you get to co-host an episode of At the Movies with Roger Ebert.
Sunday afternoon, I fired off an email to Mr. Knowles, offering my services as a guest blogger on his website. About an hour later he replied, “it’s a column I’d be interested in.” By Monday afternoon, my first article was posted on the site. I’m very excited because I check AintItCool.com about twice a day, everyday, and now I get to be a part of it.
I wasn’t prepared for the responses I received to my “Top 10 San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Action Figures.” Here’s a sampling…
moosemalloy foretold of the carnage to come:
AICN has a TOY COLUMN! – Let the hatred begin
I’m not sure if green_lanterns_roommate meant I should get fired or drunk:
This guy should be shit-canned, he failed to mention the GB GHOST TRAP!!!
I kind of think this one is funny from bobo_vision
What do you guys do with these toys apart from putting them in your bum?
I don’t think stegman84 likes me:
You actually hired one of the most mediocre youtube channel guys, rather than someone who actually knows their shit? Why should I be surprised? At least scriptgirl had a decent set of tits to distract from her overall ineptitude, this guy is just another random ‘here’s some stuff I like, isn’t it cool?’ guy. Someone who could actually give us some quality coverage with variety and depth across all areas of collectibles would be a far better way to go…oh shit, sorry, I forgot, this is AICN. Never mind, carry on then.
The best comment so far goes to bacon_aesthetic
you smell like rotten eggs ary. Mom says you gotta wash your balls before you can play with your toys
Thanks to myphdisdoom for helping a brother out:
I find it more pathetic that some of you post… Bashing people buying these things. How much time do you have to click on these links and then write hate like this. You may think you’re putting people down but all your doing is showing how pathetic you are. I want that sentinel figure now…
I can’t wait to see what they say next week.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. On the eve of 2011, I have decided to prepare for the eventual end of humanity. After reading several issues of the New England Journal of Medicine and shooting lots of Nazi Zombies on my Xbox, the future seems clear. It may be time to ready ourselves for Armageddon.
I have to thank my good friend Ryan P. Berg for giving me this delightful holiday gift. The Zombie Survival Guide is a must read for anyone contemplating the eventual attack of the undead. It offers up some excellent advice, such as never use four-wheeled vehicles, as they tend to gain unwanted attention and most streets will be blocked. Also, tight clothes and short hair is a must. If you need help preparing your home or family for the coming invasion, just give me a call. I would be happy to loan you my copy of this fascinating read and help you board up your windows.
