How To Order Nimuno LEGO Tape Online, Because Every Kid Is Going To Want A Few Rolls – Romper

Posted: Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Nimuno LEGO tape is quite possibly the coolest and most innovative toy not on the market right now.

It’s an incredible invention with endless possibilities. But…

No One at Marvel Can Give a Consistent Answer About the Connections Between Its Shows and Movies – Gizmodo

Posted: Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Image: Marvel Studios/Disney It’s been obvious from the outside looking in that Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is gated into two areas: movies and TV, and never the twain shall meet. But the thing is, if you ask anyone at Marvel Studios or involved with one of their movies, no one can seemingly give a consistent response about whether or not this is the case.

Is This Apple’s Next Big Breakthrough Product? – Vanity Fair

Posted: Tuesday, March 21, 2017

C.E.O. Tim Cook is awfully tightlipped about Apple’s augmented reality technology for someone who can’t stop gushing about its potential. It “gives the capability for both of us to sit and be very present, talking to each other, but also have other things—visually—for both of us to see,” Cook said excitedly during an interview with Good Morning America in September. “Maybe it’s something we’re talking about, maybe it’s someone else…

Paper Asylum, one of Cabot Street’s newest additions, may sell comic books, but don’t call it a “comic book store.” Owners and longtime friends Anthony Gallucci and Pete Kreitchet  just opened a couple of weeks ago. But along with comic books and other graphic novels, the new shop sells a variety of related merchandise as well as vinyl records. “We identify as a pop culture store…

‘Star Wars’ nostalgia: See first-ever photo of Luke Skywalker – CNET

Posted: Monday, March 20, 2017

Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker is an elder statesman in the Star Wars saga nowadays, but back in 1976 when he was shooting the original film (released in 1977), he was just a young pup of 25, with floppy hair and a farm boy’s innocence. On Saturday, Hamill shared what might be the first-ever photo of him as Luke Skywalker, noting that it was taken in Tunisia on the very first…

Posted: Monday, March 20, 2017

With each new scandal emanating from the White House, the national political lexicon has expanded to accommodate the controversy of the day.

Given the enormous stakes this and every time around, this must not be allowed…

Netflix and Marvel’s Iron Fist is an ill-conceived, poorly written disaster – Vox

Posted: Monday, March 20, 2017

On Friday, Marvel unleashed 13 episodes of the first season of Iron Fist on Netflix and upon the world — and it is the single worst thing the superhero television factory has ever created. This series takes everything good Marvel has done, takes it on a joy ride, then returns it scratched, bruised, and smelling like patchouli and broken promises. After the 13-hour slog, I’m not angry — I’m just…
