And you thought fast food was already scary!!!

If you haven’t heard, Burger King has unleashed upon the world the Halloween Whopper! Not since Matthew Broderick went toe to tick-tac-toe with a childlike AI in 1983 has a Whopper been so terrifying!

Halloween Whopper

BK is going all in and giving the Halloween Whopper top billing on their menu screens with a seizure inducing ad daring you to try it. The biggest selling point to this new “HA1LOWEEN” Whopper is obviously the spooky dark bread. I think they were so concerned about the bread’s appearance overshadowing the burger’s other (probably more financially driven) hook of having A1 sauce splattered inside it that they incorporated “A1” into the name.

So is this burger the new king of Hungerween? (Don’t bother checking to see if that domain is available, I just registered it! :)) Find out below!

PalmCon 2015

2015’s edition of PalmCon is in the books. It was a great time for one and all! I’ll have a full post up soon! :)


The Last of Us gets adapted into a movie … And it’s called The Maze Runner 2 …

… That’s not totally fair, they ripped off so many movies I can’t single them out for just aping The Last of Us. There are too many ripped movies to name them all but off the top of my head there’s:


Payback’s a Brick …

I’m working on a tiny animated short. Click the pic below to checkout the teaser on Instagram in all its rack-focus glory!

A Pleasant Fiction

Hey, one of my tweets got favorited by Peter Venkman! Now, I know the “real” Peter Venkman never saw the tweet and certainly never “favorited” it.

But in the pleasant fiction of Totally Rainbow, I’d like to think the “real” Peter Venkman saw my tweet, let out a chuckle, hit the “favorite” button, and then went back to MC’ing a wedding reception in his flip-flops and a faux tuxedo t-shirt … on the 18th green … of some municipal golf course.

Below is a screen shot of the magic:

Midnight Madness!!!

12:01am and Force Friday hits the local Toys “R” Us.

It was a dark and stormtrooper-ie night… A dozen or so lost souls braved the balmy September weather and some weird guy offering everyone “storm trooper candy” to get the first crack at the new Star Wars | The Force Awakens toys.

Toys "R" Us

When 12:01 rolled around and the doors opened, we were greeted by the staff and given some nifty door prizes. (A glossy Toys “R” Us branded Kylo Ren poster, a glossy product sheet of various Star Wars toys, and a sealed storm trooper lego brick.)

 

Door prizes

Holy cow, there are a ton of new The Force Awakens toys! And not just your vanilla stormtrooper action figure line. I mean everything from talking animatronic Darth Vaders and Yodas to Star Wars Micro Machines! (remember them?!?)

I made a beeline to the Lego isle and picked up all of the Force Awakens sets (spoiler alert – I’ll be using the figures in my Star Wars Episode 7 movie review). Unfortunately, in my haste, I totally forgot to take a pict of the new POP display with the new mini figs and vehicles. Here’s my mess of a haul:

Within 15 minutes of the doors opening at 12:01, Force Friday force choked $404 out of my wallet! On the way out I passed by a standee that was a friendly reminder that my money was now their money.

All in all, super fun night. There were a ton of cool new Star Wars toys and based on the trailers and what I saw tonight, I’m totally stoked for the movie. Be sure to check back soon or follow me on twitter (@totallyrainbow) to catch my upcoming toy reviews of the lego sets I picked up.
