Dark Knight Sparks Men’s Pantyhose Fad?

Okay, first I talked about the Short Suit. Then the Mankini.

I’m not trying to turn this into a men’s fashion blog but they just keep throwing this stuff my way.

This article says that the Batman movie “The Dark Knight” has sparked a fad in men wearing pantyhose:

Retailers in Europe and the United States say that men are buying pantyhose — sheer, satin, glossy, opaque or support — in skyrocketing numbers in recent months.”

If this is truly a fad, I really doubt it was inspired by a superhero movie. Maybe some dudes just want to look “polished,” are going for the sleek hairless look.

The article also points out that pantyhose was actually a staple of men’s fashion in humanity’s past — but that women stole the idea for themselves.


“Garfield Minus Garfield” To See Print

Have you seen those existentialist “Garfield Minus Garfield” strips on teh internets yet? The ones where Garfield is Photoshopped out and his owner Jon is just talking to himself like a maniac?

Well, the publisher of the Garfield collections, Ballantine, is actually going to print a volume of the re-mixed strips. And Garfield’s creator, Jim Davis, has given the project his blessing.

The “Garfield Minus Garfield” book will feature a forward by its brainchild Dan Walsh, and will present the edited and unedited strips side-by-side for easy comparison.

Still waiting for an official collection: The Nietzsche Family Circus.

Replica Wolverine Claws

A steal at $149.99, you can take home a pair of faux-adamantium (stainless steel) claws that are movie-prop level quality and perfect for the deco nook in your home. They even have the structure that lets you wear them on your hands. Unfortunately, you can’t take them off the base and pose with ’em.

Don’t see why they couldn’t make this feature. I mean, it’s not like anybody is going to strap them on and do something stupid. They sell an arsenal of Kill Bill swords and ninja stars to fanboys at conventions all the time. Of course, it just takes that *one* case of an apeshit disaffected individual with an X-Men fetish and a score to settle…

Anyway, you can buy ’em from Sideshow Toys here.

Spider-Man The Musical With Music By Bono

I kid you not, True Believer.

Auditions are underway for Peter Parker in a proposed Spider-Man musical that will feature a score by Bono and The Edge from U2 and will be directed by Julie Taymor (The Lion King).

The casting call for Peter Parker describes him as:

“male, 16-20’s [with a] great rock voice, can be nerdy with understated sex appeal, good sense of humor”

While Parker’s girlfriend, Mary Jane, is:

“female, 16-20’s, beautiful girl next door, strong pop/rock singing voice.”
