The Ultimate Pixar Halloween Costume

 

This was a blast and a half. On our latest episode of Pixar Live, you guys helped Kayla Savage and me come up with the ultimate Pixar halloween costume. And we’re totally going to do next week’s show dressed as these characters (the winner got an awesome Incredibles shirt, of course).

We broadcast this show on Facebook Live via Super News every Wednesday at 7pm Pacific. And if you tune in and leave an awesome comment, you might win something cool related to Pixar!

The contest is over, but what do you think the ultimate Pixar costume is? We got some great ideas for both Disney and Pixar (a lot of people suggested Nightmare before Christmas). The best suggestions were pretty creative and off the beaten path, so if you have something awesome to contribute, we want to hear it.

Also, Kayla and I are open to your ideas and questions for future episodes. It’s a live show, so audience engagement is always the goal. What do you want to hear us talk about, and are there any Pixar universe secrets you’re dying to hear from us? This is your chance to let us know.

That said, enjoy this week’s show!

Modern Princess: Elsa and Cinderella Get Coffee

modern princess

Written by Jon Negroni (me) and illustrated by Kayla Savage.

That’s it. Oh, and you can find more Modern Princess here.

I’m done. I have nothing else to say to you. Sigh but I have to keep writing, you know. Something about SEO or whatever new word a guy in Texas made up last week. Oh, it’s an abbriev you say?

Anyway, I only want you to enjoy the comic at the top of this page. I have nothing else to say to you. It’s a comic. I wrote it. I was thinking about how weird it is for Frozen to get so much praise for doing something Brave did a little better. And yeah, it was an excuse to put a joke name like “Wish Upon a Star Bux” on the Internet in a way that makes an ounce of sense. Kayla drew it and made it a lot better. It was her idea to put funny names on the cups.

Do I ask for your input at this point? I guess. You guys like to comment on just about everything, so asking you to “Sound off below!” seems a little beggy at this point. Honestly, if you weren’t going to lend your thoughts before you got to this point, I’m pretty sure my prattling on at the bottom isn’t going to suddenly make you remember your desire to write something.

Let’s see, just a few more words to go.

Do you believe in God? I’m honestly curious. Lately, my mind has been spinning with the fear of the eternal, and the possibility that my narcissism doesn’t transcend my own mortality. I was watching season 1 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. the other day (not a bad show, right?) and something Simmons said in the last episode freaked the chitauri out of me. Seriously,  I wasn’t expecting more existential crises from Joss Whedon so long after Dollhouse.

So I’ve made the required word count, but now we have a new problem. My brain hates ending things in an awkward way. I almost typed LaterLATER. We shouldn’t even talk like that, let alone type like that.

Bye.

For our 100th episode of the Now Conspiring podcast, we decided to…review Kubo and the Two Strings!

OK, that’s not all we did. To celebrate this arbitrary milestone, we started a new tradition: a variation of the Now Conspiring Game Show — introducing the Now Conspiring Movie Quote Trivia Challenge!

Also, we make lame jokes, talk about how much we like each other (and movies, I guess), read your comments from last week’s show, play the Now Conspiring theme song on ukulele for some reason, and talk about what’s coming soon to theaters this coming week.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: At what point did you start listening to Now Conspiring, and WHY?

If Disney Princesses Played Pokemon GO

Longtime readers and podcast listeners know that digital illustrator Kayla Savage has done some stellar artwork for this platform, including the logo for this page, the design of The Pixar Theory and The Pixar Detective, just to name a few.

Recently, we’ve been working on a comic series titled Modern Princess, which debuts with the panels you’ve just read. Kayla did the artwork, obviously, and I wrote the script. We’ll be releasing more entries in the coming weeks, so be sure to keep checking back for more, or just follow on Twitter.

And that’s not all, believe it or not. Kayla went to the trouble to produce a few bonus panels, which you can check out below:

Thanks as always for reading. Let us know in the comments if you like Modern Princess, want to see more mockups like the ones above (Jasmine with a Growlithe, anyone?), or if you just want to know how you can request artwork from Kayla Savage herself. Her portfolio and contact form is right here.

Review: ‘Creed’ is the First Sequel in Years that Actually Feels Like One

creed review

It might be too easy to say that Creed’s winning strength is how it will bring in new fans of the Rocky lore in the same way the original movie did in 1976. After all, that was clearly the intent.

The typical beats of the franchise make it to this “requel” – our hero is a longshot boxer who trains to go the distance against someone objectively better than him at the sport. But this time it’s with the illegitimate son of Apollo Creed, the champion responsible for Rocky Balboa’s rise to fame and eventual rebirth in Rocky III.
