Video game characters are people too. Well, most of the time. With all of the blustering and bowing we’ve come to expect from ourselves when we talk about our favorite gaming character of all time, we sometimes forget the humanity of these characters. The flesh and blood. Salvaged from one of his hundreds of million lost lives, this Super Mario ...

A Varsity Jacket for Stormtroopers

The varsity jacket, the universal symbol for jock superiority, unless you’re in the marching band, in which case you’re just an elitist prick.

Growing up with Disney through the 90s, I thought these Disney princesses were smokin’. I don’t care if they’re animated, these were some gorgeous cartoons. But what if Disney princesses were more akin to the realities of modern America? Odds are that they wouldn’t be a size 4, I can tell you that. Ally Bellissimo of the blog Creepy Miranda ...
