Luckily for the viewers, the referees in last night's Super Bowl weren't as horrible as they have been all year. Although that could just be the opinion of someone who has been so jaded by the NFL's zebras all year that any performance without a blown call that could potentially cost a team the win is considered satisfactory. Now, with that rant over, let me turn your attention to the newest (fake) movie about basketball referees. Will Smith stars in this trailer for Blind Referee, an "upcoming" new movie for 2014. In reality, it's a funny little skit done for the Jimmy Kimmel show that stars Will Smith and Metta World Peace. It's too bad it's only a... Read More
Welcome to the first Comic Book Rookie review of 2014. We are unofficially calling it Zombie month since, while we have detailed plenty of zombie related titles in the past, the new year brought us two great new ones from Marvel. First up, we have the brand new Deadpool mini-series which gave us two issues this month, in a creatively titled series called Night of the Living Deadpool. Our favorite merc with a mouth awakes from an all-you-can-eat taco induced coma to the zombie apocalypse. Both of the issues were filled with Wade Wilson’s typical sarcastic dialogue in the yellow word bubbles. We find out he is the last superhero (OK, the closest... Read More
Beard Of The Month - January 2014 - Michael Johnson Take a break from shoveling the polar vortex and meet our beardo, Mr. January 2014!

In our continuing series, our own Marv Nelson takes a look at what it takes to be a father. Being a Daddy is an amazing thing, but sometimes there are moments in time where being a Dad is hard and the feeling comes across that it would be easier not to be a Dad. Right now my four year old has a whine that pierces my soul (well it feels like it). He shrieks will all his might when something doesn't go his way and he stomps, pouts yells and cries for seemingly no reason. In those moments I can go from pure blissful happiness to wanting to throw something (not someone) out the window! I grit my teeth when I talk with him... Read More
This has been one of the hardest and strangest articles I have been asked to write, so let me start from the beginning: One of the perks of this job is that occasionally companies send us things to try out, and this was one of those occasions. I received a text from Ray saying "Hey, Mangroomer called and wants to send us some new stuff to try out and I told them to send it you." I thought to myself, great, I get a razor or shaver to try out. You know, something man-like. I was excited to see what this new and exciting product was, but about a week went by without a package. I was in the process of sending a text to Ray and ask if he had my... Read More
