Need some brew to focus your Poké skills? Our friends at Shirts.com just came up with these awesome Poké brew labels
As with any long-running pop culture phenomenon, as a franchise gets older, so do its fans. Pokémon trainers have grown up since 1996, the year that Nintendo and Game Freak released Pokémon Red and Blue, and they’ve evolved a lot in the past 20 years. They’ve graduated from high school and college, started careers, and even families. There are plenty of adult Poké-fans now, who instead of drinking juice boxes after school, drink coffee before work. (Full disclosure: we are those fans. Surprise!) Sooo, to combine our love of Game Boy and caffeine, ideally together, we’ve designed 13 different coffee blends featuring some of our favorite Pokémon on the labels.
1. Pikachu’s Morning Spark
Pikachu is probably the most well-known Pokémon. Like, if you asked your grandma to name just ONE, she’d definitely be more likely to answer with Pika, rather than, say, Garbodor or Rayquaza. We imagined Pikachu as a morning blend, thanks to his cheerful attitude and electric personality. (Sorry.) This is a great go-to blend for people who are just starting to get into coffee. Pikachu is just so likeable on a large scale, and so is his coffee roast. Continue Reading →
Comic book movies haven’t always been as consistently great as they have been in the age of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and post-Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy – they used to be pretty consistently awful. Unfortunately, most actors and directors of these movies were reticent to actually say how bad these movies were, due to not wanting to attract more bad PR to themselves and not wanting to insult the work of others who put in time on these films.
Luckily, every now and then, people HAVE come out and said that their movies were trash (with varying degrees of diplomatic language employed). Here’s 13 people who said what we knew they were thinking:
This is a story about a boy who’s been given a time out for being a dick, and then when he’s alone in his room he dreams up this awesome world that has, of course, Wild Things. And each of the Things represents a part of his personality, but he doesn’t know that because he’s just a little kid who’s a dick, and basically the whole book is great and everyone should read it.

This fun film is finally available on iTunes and Amazon, or at Family Video, Best Buy and even the handful of Blockbuster locations that still exist!
We had the pleasure of seeing this film a few weeks ago and it was great.
Here’s the official summary:
Gone Doggy Gone is a comedic feature about a couple stuck in a lack-luster marriage who treat their dog like a baby. Working the grind in LA they leave little time for each other, and what free time they have they spend doting on the dog… until it gets kidnapped. What ensues is an outlandish cat-and-mouse adventure as they hunt down the kidnapper, enlist a schlubby PI, find a renewed love of each other, and conquer their fear of parenthood.
