The new Doctor is such a tease(r)

A new short taste of the latest & greatest Doctor just for you, because that’s how The Tower does it! Tweet

Transformers 4 … wait… WHAT?

Well, color me gobsmacked.  I was convinced that newish character Lockdown (first seen in Cartoon Network’s Transformers Animated) was being brought into the Bayverse continuity as a herald for Unicron. We hear Lockdown speak for the first time in this commercial and what he says suggests otherwise…and it makes the Bay films even stickier.  “You […]

Boots of Escaping!

I tend to say “Boots of Escaping” a lot, and maybe I should let people know where I picked that up. Here’s a bit of fun from RENO 911 with some guest appearances by Patton Oswalt. Enjoy the weekend, and see you at the Wonderfest Worlds Record Podcast! Tweet

Optimus Prime and I have something in common

While I have admired Prime for a few decades, I wasn’t aware we shared the same affinity for sweet, crunchy pre-packaged chocolate sandwich cookies. Much like Prime, when I’m struck by a laser blast (or, more likely, under a crippling deadline) a few Oreos perk me right back up – even when I should by […]

Happy 30th Birthday, Transformers!

May 8th, 1984 is generally thought of as the “birthday” of the Transformers as we know them in America, as it is the day the first issue of the Marvel comic came out. Below is the commercial – for the comic! – I saw during an episode of G.I. Joe, where I first witnessed the […]

New ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ poster proves the Tower is inhabited by geniuses.

Let’s forget that the poster is another example of somebody Photoshopping a bunch of individual photos together for poor results. See what’s going on there? Something UNSUSUAL about the layout? Yes, Wolverine, X-Men’s literal poster boy is front & center and largest in the group, but in a solid second place is a LADY! Mystique […]

“Dark Dungeons” Chick Tract to become a movie. Kind of.

We here at the Tower are thrilled at the prospect of the classic Chick Tract “Dark Dungeons” being made into a full-blown film, while deeply offended we were not contacted to reprise our performances from the Tower audio play. As the French say: “We’re all going to hell anyway.”   Tweet

Michael Bay shoots for the edit LIVE!

Michael “Explodey” Bay was given a check to help Samsung pimp their new curved television sets that will become obsolete in two tears, assuming people even buy the damned things, at CES2014 in Las Vegas. A teleprompter malfunction let all the air out of this fragile ego-in-a-suit. If this were a Transformers film, he would […]

Podcast: Old Spice and Disappointment

http://traffic.libsyn.com/technobabble/Old_Spice_and_Disappointment_-_S03E45_Tower_of_Technobabble.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedWith the news of Blockbuster Video closing down its remaining stores, we wax nostalgic about Elisabeth Shue movies, the distinctive odor of movie rental stores, the special rooms shamefully tucked away in the mom and pop video shops and whatever happened to Red Giraffe. Then we look […]

Happy Halloween! Get your costume on!

Enjoy two bite size clips below for Halloween snacking. If you’re in the mood for a full-size-Snickers-bar taste, the third video is a whopping great 40 minutes […]
