Thundercats Returns!!

My favourite cartoon of all time is returning this year, but with a little twist!

Thundercats will be coming to Cartoon Network (hopefully this means UK and not just US), the series will see our favourite characters taking on a more Anime style as opposed to the older more flat look. Expect to see more futuristic backdrops and enhanced abilities of the alien cats.

Peep the official press release from Warner Bros. Animation here

Also check out this pic of the 2011 versions of Lion-O, Panthro, Cheetara and Tygra. I'm interested to see what WilyKit, WilyKat, Snarf and Mumra look like too...

New DVD: The Other Guys

For those of you looking to add to your DVD collection, it's definitely worth checking out the new release 'The Other Guys' starring, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg.

The odd pairing of the two works really well in this action comedy about two down on their luck New York City cops who, after the death of the precincts finest detectives get embroiled in a scam to rip off the new York police retiremnt fund.

Maddness and comedic adventures ensue as Gamble (Ferrell) and Hoitz (Wahlberg) work on bringing the bad guys to justice.

The film occasionally drags, but the laughs provided mainly by Ferrell make the film a must see! Supporting actors include- Samuel Jackson, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Steve Coogan, Eva Mendes, Michael keaton and Damon Wayans Jr.

Stand out moment- Will Ferrell as a 'Pimp named Gator'

I've even been nice enough to give you a best price list to choose where to purchase your DVD from- Click here

Andy Gray issues Apology

Former Sky Sports presenter Andy Gray has issued an apology for his part in the recent sexism row.

In a statement Gray said-

"I am very sorry that certain comments made by me have caused offence. Such comments were made off-air to work colleagues, and were of course never intended to be broadcast."

I personally am upset that we will no longer have the footballing legend on our screens. There's no one who has his vast knowledge on the game and tech skills on that Minority Report inspired board he used to analyse matches. Many papers are reporting that he has been stitched up by some unknown sources as he thought he was 'too powerful'.

Although I do not condone his actions, I do respect him on a footballing level and think that he will be irreplaceable.

I guess all banter isn't good banter.

Arsenal Reach The Carling Cup Final

Arsenal booked their place in the 2011 Carling Cup Final last night with a 3-0 (3-1 on aggregate) win over Championship side Ipswich Town.

Trailing 1-0 from the first leg, Arsene Wenger fileded a strong Arsenal side at the Emirates knowing we needed a win to book our place in our first cup final since beating Manchester United on penalties in the FA Cup Final five years ago.

With a packed stadium of which 9,000 of the 60,000 supporters were Ipswich Town fans, Arsenal set out to nick an early goal, but were frustrated after wave upon wave of attacks were defended by the away team + losing Bacary Sagna to injury early doors. Going in 0-0 at half-time was a bit worrying with only Robin Van Persie hitting the cross bar and Cesc firing across goal, but I think all TRUE Gooners knew the goals were coming, and on 60 minutes Jack Wilshere crossed a beautiful diag' ball in to the waiting Nicklas Bendtner who cut in on Carlos Edwards to cooly curl one in from just inside the box. That goal was rapidly followed by a second headed in by Laurent Koscielny from an Arshavin corner.

As the Arsenal faithful began to make plans for a day out at Wembley, the game was finally put to bed by the Captain, Cesc Fabregas who played a little one-two with Arshavin to nutmeg the Ipswich Town 'keeper.

Speaking via his website after the match Andrei arshavin said-

 "We took a very seriously approach to this game, tried to "crush" our opponents from the very first minute of the match. We expected to score a quick first goal. But after the first 45 minutes, the score was still 0-0.

"During the break Arsene told us to play in the same high-tempo and try to speed up. He said that there would come a moment when the Ipswich players would get tired and then it would get more and more difficult for them to hold back our attacks. The coach asked us to keep our cool, not to make hasty, ill-considered passes, take care of the ball. He was sure that there would come a moment when we’d press them out.

"Actually, we played that way and that led to the Nicklas's goal. I would say that the goal came at the right time. Here it’s worth pointing out not only his skills in finishing this chance off, but also a Wilshere’s great cross to Bendtner.

"This goal allowed us to lift some kind of inner tension from the team and our fans. Once we started to lead the score, the game became easier. Soon we scored a good goal from a set piece."

Although some people see the Carling Cup as less important than say the FA Cup and Champions League, I think this will be a great springboard for us which will hopefully lead to more glory and achievements in the latter stages of the season!

West Ham travel to Birmingham tonight with a slim 2-1 lead from their first leg. We don't really care who we get to be honest, they will be dealt with NOICELY!!!

Omarion Covers Jodeci's 'Come And Talk To Me'

RnB singer Omarion released a cover version of Jodeci's hit song 'Come And Talk To Me' via his twitter. When I followed the link and saw that it was a Jodeci song I did pause before playing it, as Jodeci are my favourite group of ALL TIME, but the cover isn't bad at all. O can't hit the high notes like JoJo, but the lyrics are kool and updated to be relevant to the present day!

I have a feeling there is something in the pipeline from Omarion, possibly a mixtape before a new project. I hope he leaves the teenage heart-throb vibe behind and drops some young adult music. He is actually one of my favourite performers and 'Ollusion' (to me) was a good album. Don't forget the dance tracks and moves to go along with them O!

Check out the teaser clip below...

Happy Birthday Dr Martin Luther King

Saturday 15th January marked the 81st birthday of  Dr Martin Luther king.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American clergyman activist, and prominent leader in the African American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for being an iconic figure in the advancement of civil rights in the United States and around the world, using nonviolent methods following the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. King is often presented as a heroic leader in the history of modern American liberalism.

In 1964, King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to end racial segregation and racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other nonviolent means. By the time of his death in 1968, he had refocused his efforts on ending poverty and stopping the Vietnam War.

King was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977 and Congressional Gold Medal in 2004; Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was established as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986.


Lil Wayne To Feature On 'Roman's Revenge' Remix

Nicki Minaj has finally got her wish, Lil Wayne will feature on a track off of her 'Pink Friday' album. The recently released Young Money president will lay down a verse for the remix to 'Roman's Revenge' which will be released on iTunes sometime this week (probably replacing Eminem).

Nicki says-

“I think that he’s definitely going to be doing a remix, as he was in jail when I recorded Pink Friday, he’s not on Pink Friday, so I will definitely want to get his little butt in the studio to do a remix right away.”

I have no doubt wayne will kill his verse! I'll post it as soon as I get it...

First Pic Of New Spider-Man

Sony pictures have released the first pic of new Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield who will take the reigns in the new Spidey prequels.

The Social Network actor appears to be a bit slimmer than Maguire, but then the movie is based before and leading up to the moment the web slinger is bitten by a radio-active spider on a school trip.

Spider-Man is not the first movie franchise to be taken back to basis, with Batman and X-Men both doing it too!

The movie is due out in 2012.

Kanye West Gets His Own 18K Gold Watch

Via Luxist:

The watch dial features two Swiss quartz chronograph movements. So you have two times, two chronographs, etc... The real allure is in all the jewel work. Tiret claims it took them over five months to create the dial. The dial itself is in gold toned mother-of-pearl, with a combo of white, yellow, brown, and black diamonds. The bezel is lined with very large diamonds as well. The watch is said to have a total of about 8 carats of stones. Kayne's face has been immortalized on the dial - complete with sunglasses. Retail price for this is said to be about $180,000, and is custom made specially for each client.
Yeezy must be loving the fact he can look at himself all the 'time'.. GET IT???
