Most baking recipes call for room temperature eggs. This is important because eggs function better when they're between 68º-70ºF: they bind more easily to other ingredients, take on more volume, and disperse more easily in batter than they would otherwise. But what if you've forgotten to take the eggs out ahead of time?
Velcro cable ties are one of the most popular items we've ever listed
A group of computer scientists have revealed a dangerous security flaw that could open up many phones and other machines to attack. The worst part is that the problem has its roots in a misguided U.S. government effort to prevent consumers from having access to strong encryption.
Apparently Melvin Potter will have a big role on the show, and if you're...
THR reports that the Academy is mulling a return to five Best Picture nominees. The thinking is that the number of nominees has "watered down the prestige" of the awards, but more crucially, hasn't changed the...

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?" The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.
It's with these challenges in mind that we've created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.
The idea that filmmakers and studios might use the Internet to “listen to the fans” has been a common wishful theory at least since the early days of Ain’t It Cool News—in other words, for nearly two decades now. But what happens when the filmmakers themselves join the fan clamor? If this line hadn’t been crossed already, it came close recently when writer-director Neill Blomkamp, of District 9 and the upcoming Chappie, posted concept art from a purportedly abandoned or near-dead pitch he made to Fox for a new Alien sequel. Not long after the art received plenty of positive online attention, Blomkamp and Fox announced that the project was, in fact, going into development (though a concrete release date has not been set). Similarly, test footage of Ryan Reynolds as the Marvel Comics mercenary Deadpool, who Reynolds briefly played in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, seemingly played a ...
This week we've also got a man, a plan, a canal: a comic book; Heaven's Gate in the heavens; a couple of inappropriate nicknames for the avatar of the Green; a new series for Hawkdude; an imaginary friend who needs rehab; and the revenge of the 99 Pon-cent. Let's start with how Dustin Nguyen's spilling a bunch of water on a boy robot.

Do you remember that scene from Animal Man #19 by Grant Morrison and Chas Troug? In which Buddy Baker, high on mescalin, looked directly at the viewer and said,
Itself inspired by a scene by Bryan Talbot in Brainstorm?
Swamp Thing #40 does something similar. Not the same. But terribly meta for its final issue, by Charles Soule and Jesus Saiz. Under assault from all sides, Swamp Thing finds a place for his consciousness to hide…
In the pages of a book. And this double page spread giving the impression, to the reader of the comic book that they are holding the very essence of Swamp Thing in the comic book that they are reading.
And we also get another Animal Manish scene with this new literary Swamp Thing manifesting himself in idea space. With lots of blank background. And a mysterious figure. All very…
Though there is another writer who appears to loom a little larger in this Ideaspace.
And the end of this scene? The recognition that this is the last issue of Swamp Thing and the comic is already half way done… and a reminder of where comic book characters might go when their books come to an end.
Bravo, sirs, bravo. Warren Ellis and Tula Lotay have something to say on the matter today from today’s Supreme: Blue Rose…
Swamp Thing #40 is published today by DC Comics. Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics, London. Who are welcoming Scott McCloud this Saturday for drinks and signing of his new graphic novel, The Sculptor…
We've all seen an intrepid investigator spray down a crime scene with luminol and turn off the light, and a seemingly innocent room glows blue, illuminated by the leftover traces of gore. This is usually a sign someone was horribly murdered in that room. But in reality it's also possible that they got into a food fight.
The internet is an excellent place to discover incredible fan made videos that imagine worlds far beyond even what Uatu the Watcher could dream. It is because Wes Anderson has such a strong signature style that it allows him to be an excellent source for parody as much as his works being a fascinating study. Such director style parodies as the SNL imagining his take on a horror film or his version of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer or even a Wes Anderson adapted version of Spider-Man has had fun with Anderson’s brand.
The short trailer is a fun imagining of the unique style and cadence of characters that one would typically find in a Wes Anderson film centered around the admission of Bobby Drake (AKA Iceman) into the Xavier school for gifted students.
Watch the Wes Anderson idiosyncratically specific X-Men trailer below:

Anthony and Ashley continue the Epic Move To The Awesome Apartment this week, so Elizabeth’s our host again, along with guest star Leland from Movie Issues! Listen in as we talk Disney and Marvel, and geek out over our favorite artists.
We discuss Rocket Raccoon #8 and Angela: Asgard’s Assassin #3, then get into She Hulk, Gambit, and Afterlife with Archie, before wrapping up with All New X-Men #36 and Uncanny X-Men #30. Along the way we mention that if you’re going to go to Disneyland, you need to bring Leland with you.
This year during SXSW in Austin, filmmaker Robert Rodriguez will unveil an amazing collection of art from the legendary Frank Frazetta, whose work not only defined the look of a number of properties — including Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan and John Carter of Mars series — it also influenced a number of wonderful projects, from The Legend of Zelda to He-Man.
Rodriguez, a Frazetta superman himself, is set to direct a remake of Frazetta and Ralph Bakshi’s Ice and Fire. This art show, which will be available to anyone (not just SXSW badge holders) will show off a number of original pieces from Frazetta alongside Frank Miller, Drew Struzan and Sebastian Kruger. To call it a star-studded affair fails to show proper reverence. It’s a legend-studded affair.
Information about the show can be found above. It will run in downtown Austin for a week during the South by Southwest Film Festival.
There will also be a number of limited edition screen prints for sale. One of these limited edition prints has found its way to us and in the spirit of sharing and having a good time, we’d like to give it away to one of our fine readers. As long as you live in the United States and are 18 or older, you can enter by filling out the form below:
Oh, and here’s the print. It’s called “At Earth’s Core” and it’s essential Frazetta.
"We Want You to Have a Gorgeous Piece of Frank Frazetta Art" was originally published on Film School Rejects for our wonderful readers to enjoy. It is not intended to be reproduced on other websites. If you aren't reading this in your favorite RSS reader or on Film School Rejects, you're being bamboozled. We hope you'll come find us and enjoy the best articles about movies, television and culture right from the source.
The show itself is listed in the Best Youth-Oriented Television Series category. Other nominations include The 100, Pretty Little Liars, Supernatural, Teen Wolf and The Vampire Diaries.
Jenna Coleman has also been nominated in the Best Supporting Actress in a Television Series category. Her competition is in the form of Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Caroline Dhavernas (Hannibal), Lexa Doig (Continuum), Emily Kinney (The Walking Dead) and Melissa McBride (also The Walking Dead).
The Saturn Awards are presented by the The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films, and will take place this year on 25th June 2015.
Previously, Doctor Who won Best Television in 1997, and Best International Series in 2008; in 2010 the spin-off series Torchwood: Children of Earth won the Best Presentation on Television category.
During the Jan-Jun period last year both publications had suffered in their circulations, with DWM decreasing by some 7% and DWA losing nearly a third of its readers - this period occured as the celebrations of the 50th Anniversary cooled off and no new Doctor Who on the horizon on television until the late Summer. However, breakdown by issues show that both publications saw a huge boost as the series returned (with August's figures for DWM and DWA showing 35,559 and 26,830 respectively). Figures dropped as the series progressed, but improved again by December for the Christmas Special. The full breakdowns can be found by clicking on the relevant linked publication certificate below.

ABC figures for DWM only started being calculated in 2010. Percentages shown are the change on the previous six months.
Overall, the 2014 average for DWM shows that their readership has remained stable, with a less than 1% change; however, DWA has shorn some 22.6% of its readership compared to the previous year (the magazine has now switched from fortnightly to monthly so the next biannual report will reflect the less frequent publication).
DWM's editor, Tom Spilsbury, said:
Figures for January-June this year are expected to be released in August.
"Star Wars Uncut" was an Emmy-winning homage to "Star Wars," created by breaking up the film into individual 15-second chunks, and having different fans recreate each mini-scene in just about every way imaginable. Seriously, if you can think of it, it's in there: We're talking Millennium Falcons constructed out of cardboard boxes, lightsaber-wielding Legos, and people wearing scotch-taped paper signs to designate themselves as C-3PO and R2-D2... there's even an actual robot at one point, as well as some unsettling line art and some even more unsettling clip art -- and all that's just the tip of the iceberg.
"Mad Men" Fan Cut hopes to do the same with the show's now-iconic pilot, "Smoke Gets In Your...
Many directors and I probably share the same idle daydream: A studio exec calls and says, "You simply must direct our $200 million screen epic. You’re the only one on our list."
Then I wake up and realize I'm more likely to catch the measles or be hit by lightning.
Let's keep dreaming, but at the same time, devote our waking hours to taking action—like veteran assistant director and production manager Tom Seidman has. Seidman’s resume includes working for directors Clint Eastwood on "Honkytonk Man," Peter Weir on "Dead Poets Society" and Robert Redford on "Ordinary People." He shared his experiences with low-budget indie productions at a recent Film Independent...

About the Film: The genesis of this film began when actor Josiah Polhemus and I met in the first grade. As kids we would make super-8 movies when ever we had free time. Years later we reconnected to discover we were still both pursuing our dreams, myself as an independent film producer and...
