aaaahhhhhhKellogg’s has teamed up with, y’know, some soda people, to bring the world two new flavors of Pop Tarts – Crush Orange and A&W Root Beer. 

Pop-Tarts Frosted A&W Root Beer are bubbling with root beer-flavored filling, wrapped inside a golden crust, and are topped with sweet white frosting and brown, red and orange crunchlets. Pop-Tarts Frosted Crush Orange citrus-flavored filling will tingle your taste buds with its sweet white frosting and orange string icing.

This prompts us to ask the question: Is this it? Are we done? Is the apocalypse nigh? Are two of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse really into Pop-Tarts? And if so, which ones? I suspect Famine is a fan. Maybe Death? It’s probably Death.

knightmage-afro-samurai-topCosplayer Michael Wilson aka Knightmage has put together an Afro Samurai cosplay that makes me think we need a lot more Afro Samurai cosplay in our lives.

I love the hair and I’m kind of fascinated with the headband. I wish I could walk around looking like the wind was constantly blowing around me.

1-27Social psychologist Erika D. Price has devised a system of ranking breakfast cereals, although she apparently doesn’t stand by it.

We don’t know what criteria was used to achieve the final results—but it doesn’t matter. The results are subjective. In fact, the list will likely receive instant rejection when people discover that Raisin Bran was placed in the mid tier and Cap’n Crunch didn’t event make it into the mix.

Nearly 30 years ago a movie hit the big screen and vividly defined everything glorious about the ’80s in less than two hours. From Jim Henson creatures to the timeless glamour of the late David Bowie, Labyrinth went above and beyond to transport viewers to a different world.

It was also a box office bomb.

However, Labyrinth has become a cult classic in the years since. So, to commemorate the 30th anniversary, Fathom Events is bringing the film back to select theaters on September 11th and 14th ahead of the special edition Blu-ray that arrives on September 20th.

So here is your chance to see David Bowie back on the big screen in this Jim Henson masterpiece. Tickets and info on participating theaters will be available on the Fathom Events website.
