Monday Mix-Up: Post-Punk Icons Reimagined As Marvel Heroes

We’d hesitate to describe any musician as a “hero”, but prompted by Butcher Billy’s new art series, we’re starting to notice the similarities.

Following on from his 2013 series of Post-Punk ‘Super Friends’, illustrator and New Wave obsessive Billy has returned to his favourite theme of dressing up the likes of The Smiths and Joy Division in super suits.

Monday Mix-Up: Spock meets Spock and Carol Burnett

Monday Mix-Up: Spock meets Spock and Carol Burnett

In preparation for Star Trek Into Darkness, we present you with these dark moments…

Whaaaaaaaaaaaat?

The image supposedly is from a first season episode of The Carol Burnett Show. Surprisingly, little seems to be known about the details of why Leonard Nimoy is there in full Spock regalia. Some sources indicate that the skit uses Spock as a punchline for Burnett wanting baby advice from “Dr. Spock,” though is both supported and refuted, depending on what source you want to go with. Other sites say that the sketch is titled “Mrs. Invisible Man,” though no details about the it or why Nimoy is there are offered.

Pretty funny, though.

Monday Mix-Up: The Simpsons Family, guy!

What? I mean… what??? Has somebody gotten the scheduling screwed up on Sunday night on Fox?

Monday Mix-Up: ESPN does “The Princess Bride”

The Princess Bride (film)On the November 9 episode of ESPN NFL Kickoff, hosts Trey Wingo, Mark Schlereth, and Tedy Bruschi, all decided to have some fun. Apparently one of the hosts decided to make a reference to The Princess Bride, and then the hosts competed to jam as many references into a half-hour show as possible.

Here’s a video of most of them.

And here’s an interview with the anchors telling how it all came about.
