Things We Saw Today: Godzilla Being A Gentleman


Who knew Godzilla had it in him? And here we thought he was all STOMP STOMP GRRRRRR! (via Blastr) Hit the jump for all the other stuff we saw online today. 

  • Looks like Godzilla could teach some folks a thing or two. I documented my own experience trying out for the AMC reality show Comic Book Men (and my distaste for the apparent new direction of the show) starring Kevin Smith and friends on Newsarama, but a woman (and friend of mine) who was actually chosen for the pilot has been speaking out about her own experience with the show. Zoë A. Gulliksen discusses on her blog how cast member and Secret Stash employee Walt Flanagan yelled at her after she showed up in a comic costume the producers asked her to wear. “Walt berated me, saying what I was wearing was inappropriate and sluttish,” she writes. “On camera I was nearly in tears because I did not understand what was happening. I was only doing what the producers had me do, and yet I was being yelled at.” Read the entire post, it’s enlightening to both human behavior and reality TV.
  • Here’s a great piece by iFanboy writer Jim Mroczkowski who discusses his young daughter, her love of superhero characters and his frustrating finding something appropriate with them for her to read.

This is a precious Avengers Art Appreciation cover for Incredible Hulk #7 by Stuff of Legend artist Charles Paul Wilson III. (via Mastering The List)

  • Remember when we brought you news that actress Lily Collins was taking the lead role of Ash in the Evil Dead remake? She is no longer attached due to scheduling issues according to The Film Stage.
  • We also recently told you ex-Doctor Who show runner Russel T. Davies was doing a new show for the BBC called Aliens vs. Wizards. It was described as a cross between Doctor Who and Harry Potter. Now we’ve got an actual plot description. You can read it an Pajiba. Sounds fun!

Here is a Batman husband so you can pretend Batman is your husband. (via Comics Alliance)

  • This may be the best comment left on the internet ever. It involved politics and Game of Thrones and humor. (via Jezebel)
  • Zelda Universe has information on music books you can use to learn video game songs. Titles include Super Mario Series for GuitarSuper Mario Series for PianoSuper Mario Series for Easy Piana, and The Legend of Zelda Series for Piano. (via Susana’s mom. Yes, really.)

    If you listened to the Podcast Walt yells at everyone. And it is a TV show and they want drama. The producers told her to do that because they knew how Walt would react. That store is his home and his lively hood, to him dressing that way could get him sued or fined, thus his anger and drama. Why would she react by crying and not standing up to him, he is not a big guy. Women power and all you are yelling about but she almost cried instead of giving it back. Grow up, your an adult and should know 1 how the game is played 2 how to standup for yourself against a 38 yr old little comic book guy or 3 just leave no one is making you stay.

    You need to actually see the picture. How she was dressed COULD NOT have gotten Walk “sued or fined”. It seems Walk falls in the category of men who needlessly hate women. Shame, I was a fan.

    Actually, he just needs to stop riding Kevin Smith’s jock and pick up some common grammatical skills. I’m pretty sure the Comic Book Men are old enough to defend themselves, they don’t need you to do it for them.

    Oh, my goodness, is that Avengers artwork a reference to “Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree”?? So adorable!

    As a Jersey native who frequents that shop and has had numerous interactions with Walt, I can say that while Walt is definitely a little bitter, this sounds like something fabricated to make a good reality show.  I’m sorry for Zoe that she unwittingly got caught up in it.

    The woman was clearly set up by the producers and basically went into the situation with her proverbial shields down.  Then this little shit explodes on her when she’s least expecting it. 

    So obviously it’s her fault.

  • Adam Whitley

    All she had to do to shut him down was mention he terrible artwork. which worked in tandem with Kevin Smith’s declining talent to ruin Batman.

    I don’t care what the reason was, if you treat people like shit, you’re an ass.  Plain and simple.  Decency should come ahead of ratings.

  • Frodo Baggins

    Gamera may be Friend to Children, but Godzilla is friend to their moms.

    Without reading the Pajiba article, I’m going to take a wild fucking guess about what the plot of Aliens vs. Wizards could possibly be: aliens try to invade Earth, wizards need to stop them. RIGHT?

    That Campaign of Ice and Fire comment is indeed hilarious. So, Romney is Robb Stark, eh? SPOILERS Now to find out who the equivalent of the Freys are, and to make sure he attends their wedding.

  • Frodo Baggins

    Should, but doesn’t. Reality TV’s primary goal is to make their subjects cry/scream as much as possible. They’re basically Saw with more paperwork.

    Okay, so perhaps she could’ve fought back? But honestly, she went in there in a positive frame of mind, and no matter how bad human beings have treated one another, people in general don’t got into supposedly non-threatening situations prepared to lash back with equal force, most especially if she was not in a position of power. She felt gratitude for being on that show, and so she wasn’t ready to deal with entitled jerks slut shaming her. Her weakness in this situation does not mean she deserved any kind of disrespect.  I can’t believe you’re sticking up for Walt. I don’t care if he yells at everyone. If he happened to direct that yelling at me, I’m not going to laugh and say, “Oh, you’re so funny, Walt. You yell at everyone!” I’m not going to think it’s just one of those things he does.

    I thought ‘being a gentleman’='PATRIARCHY I HAET YOO EVUL MAN RAEEEEEEG!!!!!’

    Color me surprised.

    Doesn’t make him any less of an ass though.  It is because of behavior like this that I don’t watch reality shows, unless you count American Pickers.

    In Godzilla’s case, it just seems better than STOMP STOMP GRRRRRR!

    Baby steps. We’ll teach him feminism at a later date.

    I just called them Saw with paperwork. Where are you getting “less of an ass?”

    Yeah, but he’ll still be male, and therefore evil.
