Save The Thundercats on Cartoon Network

In case you didn’t know, last fall The Cartoon Network commissioned a reboot of the classic animated series Thundercats. Here’s a trailer:

They aired a season of 26 episodes over the last few months, but have yet to announce whether or not they’re bringing it back in the fall. While attending the 2012 ITV Fest/PopCon L.A. with my friend Aris, we came across the TeeBlitz booth, where I noticed they had a cool “Save The Thundercats” T-shirt on display. It turns out they weren’t selling them, they were giving them away for free to Thundercats supporters who signed a petition at change.org for Cartoon Network to renew Thundercats for a second season. Being fans of the show, we had no problem signing up to support it. We also had an ulterior motive for signing: Aris’ friend does voice work on the series and we’d like to keep him employed. Plus, a cool T-shirt:

“Thundercats HO!!”

Twilight Hallmark Ornament

As opposed to my neighbor, Jerry

True story: because it’s never to early to start shilling Christmas shit, the 2011 Hallmark Keepsake Dreambook is here in July. For those not in the know, it’s a catalog of all the ornaments and decorations that Hallmark offers. A lot of them are licensed designs of well known characters. My girl picked one up and was thumbing through it when she came across this:

Twilight Hallmark Ornament
A timeless classic that should be hanging on everyone's tree.

“What the fuck does that have to do with Christmas?” I wondered aloud. “I’m pretty sure Native American werewolves don’t celebrate it, and vampires are against holy water, crosses and all that other religious shit. What a stupid license.”

My girl comes back with, “They’re just Twilight characters. They’re not REAL vampires.”
