New ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Featurettes Provide A Glimpse At Simon Pegg’s Character

Featured Image -- 7459

Originally posted on UPROXX:

We’ve known for a while that Simon Pegg would likely appear in Star Wars: The Force Awakens in some capacity, although there’s been no hint as to who or what Pegg would be playing. Well, now we have a somewhat better idea thanks to a new Disney Channel featurette.

The featurette is an introduction to Daisy Ridley’s Rey, but it also features a bunch of behind-the-scenes shots, including a brief glimpse of Simon Pegg in his alien get-up at around the 30-second mark. You definitely won’t recognize Pegg when he shows up, as he’s playing some sort of chubby, orc-like alien. No word on the character’s name yet, but he certainly appears to be a bit of a ne’er-do-well. Maybe I shouldn’t judge an alien by its cover, though. You can check out the featurette, which features a decent amount of new footage, above.

While we’re at it, here’s another…

At Supermegafest 2015 held in Framingham, MA I got the distinct privilege of meeting and speaking with a very personable and supremely talented freelance artist: Jason Casey. Jason was kind enough to give me a view into the life of self promoted artist as well as shed some light on his journey.

Graphic Policy: Hi nice to meet you. So I just noticed your artwork and it’s quite striking and especially the picture of Bob Ross drawing Groot. I have to get the story behind that if you don’t mind?

Jason Casey: Well thank you, it’s very nice to meet you too. My name is Jason Casey I’m a professional unpublished illustrator. This is my 8th year on the Comic Con scene. So the story of Bob Ross painting Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy is, that movie came out a week before Boston Comic Con 2 years ago…

Seo Hee Ham Defeats Cortney Casey At UFC Fight Night 79

Originally posted on Women's MMA Today:


Former Deep Jewels champion Seo Hee Ham picked up her first UFC victory in her home country tonight at UFC Fight Night 79: “Henderson vs Masvidal” in Seoul, South Korea. The standout striker edged out Cortney “Cast Iron” Casey on the feet in a closely-contested strawweight matchup.

Casey got off to a solid start in the opening round after backing Ham up with a head kick and punches, but Ham stood her ground and rallied back with crisp striking throughout the final ten minutes. Casey slowed down in round three and Ham walked away with a well-deserved win on the scorecards.

Losing Interest In Comic Book Men

Originally posted on Ramblings Of A Comics Fan:

When I first started watching AMC’s Comic Book Mena few years ago, it was one of those television shows that I couldn’t get enough of. It was like one of the TV shows I would frequently put on if I saw it as I channel surfed, Pawn Stars only for comics, which immediately rocketed the show into one of my favourite programs to watch. That there were also segments with Kevin Smith as he and the staff of the shop talked about the items was a bonus.

Does the shipping schedule of comics affect your purchases?

Katherine: Not for me since I usually wait to purchase the trade paperback. I have to be really thrifty with my comics purchases.

Alex: I tend to be thrifty, too. A comic released more than once a month means one less monthly I’ll pick up (usually).

Elana: When I learned I was getting two issues of All-New Wolverine this month it made me a little stressed out as a critic — because it means I have next to no time to write that review I was working on. But as a fan of this comic (and…

Pachter Gives The Nintendo NX A 40% Chance At Failing

Featured Image -- 7433

Originally posted on My Nintendo News:

Everyone’s favourite video game analyst Michael Pachter has once again spoken about the forthcoming NX platform from Nintendo. While he only knows as much as we do he says that the console has a 40% chance of failure and a positive 60% chance of success. Pachter believes that the platform will a mobile convergence device. That means it will be a hybrid between a home console and handheld.

Pachter sees the system’s outlook for profit as fairly positive. Overall, he estimates a 40 percent odd for failure and a 60 percent odd for success. While NX is being primed to launch late in a hardware cycle, he still says it could sell as many as 30 million units. To put that number into perspective, PS4 just passed the 30 million sales milestone since its release two years ago.

Instead, I’ll take a look at past notable comic book wrestlers. Here’s hoping Ringside’s new top draw is just as memorable or, at the very least, searchable on Google.

Throwback Thursday – Stone Cold vs Taker BEFORE WWE

Originally posted on The World According to ZAH:

Throwback Thursday - UndertakerAfter celebrating “25 Years of the Undertaker” last weekend at Survivor Series, I thought it would be interesting to see some extremely old-school footage of him before taking on the “Dead Man” gimmick.

Mark Calaway debuted in World Class Championship Wrestling way back in 1984 under a mask as Texas Red. This is a classic match with Texas Red (with Percy Pringle…aka Paul Bearer) taking on the incredible BruiserBrody.

Five years later, after working in WCCW and Continental (among other territories), he moved on to Memphis to join the USWA with Dutch Mantell (aka Zeb Colter) as his manager. His gimmick was called The Master of Pain, which was a character who was fresh out of the Atlanta State Penitentiary after serving five years (much in solitary confinement) for killing two men in a fight. Riiiiiight…

Tommy Gilbert Passes Away

Originally posted on Mind Of Carnage:


Tommy Gilbert, the patriarch of the Gilbert wrestling family and a star for a number of wrestling territories, passed away this morning.

Gilbert, who was 75 years old, was a headliner in the Memphis territory for many years and worked a number of other Southern wrestling territories including Continental, Florida and Puerto Rico’s WWC.

Gilbert held a number of titles including the Florida Heavyweight championship and the WWC Caribbean Heavyweight championship as well as countless Tag Team championships.

Gilbert’s sons Eddie and Doug followed him into the business, following their father to become legitimate stars in the Memphis area as well and beyond, working for The NWA, Global and other promotions.

MindofCarnage would like to express our deepest condolences to the Gilbert family as well as Tommy’s friends and fans.
