Doc Mock’s Movie Mausoleum!

BIG THANKS TO EVERYBODY WHO HELPED MAKE THE PREMIERE EPISODE SUCH A SUCCESS! MORE UPDATES TO COME!

Doc Mock's Movie Mausoleum! Broadcasting LIVE every Friday night at 10pm PST / 1am EST!

I'm sure some of you have noticed that I've been relatively quiet on here over the past month or so. Well, I'm sorry to say it's not because I've been a lazy bastard relaxing somewhere on the shores of my own private island... it's because I've been working on putting together a brand new project. And just what is this mysterious new project that has suddenly garnered your complete and undivided attention? It's a brand new show called Doc Mock's Movie Mausoleum!

Yes indeedy, I'll be hosting this new weekly web show LIVE on Friday nights at 10pm PST (1am EST) on theStream.tv. You may recall that I appeared as a guest on an episode of Coin-Op TV a while back on their network (you can watch the full episode here in case you missed it). Well, they decided to lemme have a show of my own and I really think you guys are gonna dig it. Each episode of Doc Mock's Movie Mausoleum will expose your fervent faces to a movie that you've most likely never seen before. If you have seen it, well... good for you mister fancypants! Either way, you'll want to tune into the show because a) It's live and you'll get to interact with us via our chat room as the show takes place, b) I'll have a special new guest to provide running commentary about the movie with me each week, c) There will be weekly giveaways and other surprises, and d) You know you don't have anything better to do that late on a Friday night anyway. And speaking of the chat room...

The Nurse will be keeping a close watch on the pulse of the chat room!

Re is going to be our resident nurse and she'll be keeping a close watch on the pulse of the chat room as she fields your questions and comments during the show. So yeah, be sure to join in the live chat on thestream.tv (along with the simultaneous broadcasts & chats on both justin.tv and ustream.tv in their "thestream" channels) when the show airs for some extra fun. Just know that she makes liberal use of the defibrillator.

Also, with any nifty new show, a proper web site for it is required by law. BY LAW! So I've gone ahead and set up the official site for Doc Mock's Movie Mausoleum at docmock.com. You can also reach it at moviemausoleum.com. That's where I'll be posting all of the future updates for the show along with some other goodies on a regular basis, and of course you can post comments & questions in the blog for me to respond to. Later this week I'll be posting a downloadable mp3 of the theme song on there (performed by yours truly), so be sure to get it while supplies last!

I also have a new Dock Mock Forum set up on theStream.tv, so please register an account on there and say hey! So that's the big news! Hope you guys can all check it out when it airs LIVE this Friday night!

I-Mockery At The 2009 San Diego Comic-Con!

I-Mockery will be landing at the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con this July! Hope you'll be showing up too!

After countless years o' trying, I'm happy to report that I-Mockery has finally secured itself a table for the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con! We've been covering the convention for years and years and years and years (and years), but this is the first time our site is actually going to be a part of it. I'm not exactly sure where in the big convention center our lil' table is going to be located, but I'll be sure to bring a flare gun and fire it off every 10 minutes or so to help let everyone know exactly where we are. I'm sure the fire marshal won't have any issues with that. But yeah it's the 40th anniversary of the Comic-Con and this also just so happens to be I-Mockery's 10th official year in operation! (Alright, we've really been around for 13 years since this site was on Geocities starting way back in 1996, but I registered the I-Mockery domain and moved everything over to it in 1999 and ten years is a nice round number so let me have my celebration, ok? Ok.)

So, what does all of this mean? Well, first and foremost it means that YOU need to make some travel arrangements to come out and see us! The convention takes place in San Diego on Thursday July 23rd through Sunday July 26th. If you already registered and got a 4-day pass, you'll also be able to attend "Preview Night" on the 22nd. If you haven't purchased tickets yet, I suggest you do so ASAP because they will sell out. The 4-day and Saturday passes alone have already sold out.

I'm also happy to inform you that we're all gonna be there, not just me. Yes indeedy, Max Burbank, Protoclown and Dr. Boogie will be there with me at the table. I can't stand the thought of being around those guys for 4 days straight and I know the feeling is mutual... but these are the things we do for you, the fans. So again, you owe it to us to show up. And yes, we'll be happy to take photos with any of you guys, and I'm probably going to put Protoclown in charge of administering our "Free Convention Colonoscopy" special offer. That'll make for some great take-home photos! Don't worry, to help take your mind off of it, Dr. Boogie will thumb wrestle you while Proto does his thing. Nothing gets your mind off of a colonoscopy like a good thumb wrestling match. Words to live by. (more...)

The New Cobra Commander?

Oh I get it... it's a G.I. Joke! Cobra La-la-la? Nay. Cobra Ha-ha-ha? Indeed.
(click to enlarge)

I'm sure you've all heard about the "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" movie that's due out later this year. Well, feast your eyes on the above photo because that is apparently the new face of Cobra Commander. Somebody sent me a link to an eBay auction where it was selling for way too much and I couldn't believe this was the new face of Cobra. When I first heard about them doing a G.I. Joe movie, I obviously had my doubts, but then images of some of my favorite characters started popping up online and I was surprised that they looked pretty good. Take Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow for example.... both of them actually looked fairly similar to the original characters I was obsessed with as a kid. Even Destro has a metal head in the upcoming film, and while I doubt his lips will magically move like they did in the cartoon, he at least looks decent. So what the hell happened with Cobra Commander? Why did they feel the need to fuck with his classic depictions when the creators of the new movie seemed so intent on keeping all the other characters so close to the originals?

Look, there are only two truly iconic ways to show Cobra Commander: 1) Wearing his hood. 2) Wearing his mirror-faced battle helmet. But that's not what we're getting apparently. Instead, we're getting a guy who looks like a veteran frequenter of your average s&m club. WHYYYYYYY!? (more...)
