Can we finally agree that getting turned on by sexy comic book characters is no longer creepy? Before Maxim and the internet, serials filled with scantily clad female superheroes and villainesses were the closest thing to porn you could get your hands on (heh).
But these days, geek's explosion into pop culture has made it so that comic books are no longer regarded as a fanboy's dirty little secret, wedged under a mattress. Some people have even gone so far as to ink their fap material into their flesh. We found 11 examples of this. Many, but not all, happen to be on men. Our guess: These guys don't make it out of the house much. Read More...
There is something very hipster about original "Walking Dead" fans. They're always so quick to assure you that they were fans of the franchise before it was a hit show on AMC. They loved it before it was popular, when it was a monthly black-and-white comic book series. And like hipsters, they're willing to show their devotion by inking it into their mmmmdelicious flesh.
To celebrate the Season 2 "Walking Dead" teaser trailer--which, while hard to watch, is impossible not to--we've collected the best tattoos inspired by the Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore series. Read More...

For the first time in 15 years, Sublime fans can go to a record store (if any still exist) and buy something they thought they'd never be able to buy again: a Sublime album with new songs. Yours Truly, out today, is the first album from Sublime With Rome, the reconstituted version of the band made up of two original members (Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh) and one new one (Rome Ramirez).
Of course, the original version of Sublime fronted by the late Bradley Nowell is the Sublime that frat boys and stoners love. It's the Sublime responsible for songs like "Santaria" and "Wrong Way," and it's the Sublime that we ran through the word cloud machine over at Wordle.
What do the word clouds tell us? First, the words that occur most often on the band's three albums are "get," "got" "gonna," "wanna" and "know." With the exception of "know," those words seem to show that Nowell was often singing about his place in the world (what he's got) and how it wants to change it (what he wants to do, what he's gonna do). As always though, if you look past the common words things get more interesting as lyrics emerge that reveal something about the man behind them. Words like "smoke," "reggae," "mood," "God" and "love" get at the band's true essence.
Got any brilliant insights from Sublime's word clouds? Tell us about them in the comments.
