Billy Cranston, the Blue Mighty Morphin’ Ranger is having a rough month.
First, it was discovered that the Triceratops is not a legitimate dinosaur, it’s actually the immature stage of another dinosaur, the Torosaurus.
This is worst than when they demoted Pluto. Just the fact that my spell check recognizes Triceratops but not Torosaurus illustrates everything that is wrong with this discovery. Click here for the full story.
My first thought after hearing this was that Power Rangers was now inaccurate. Never mind textbooks and museums, Billy was out of a Dinozord!
My second thought was about Cera from A Land Before Time.
The second thing to happen to Billy was the revelation that David Yost, the actor who portrayed Billy, was mocked and harassed on the set of Power Rangers due to his homosexuality. Eventually he walked off the set after hearing one anti-gay slur too many, which explains the stock footage of him in the episode when Billy left Earth to permanently live on Aquitar.

By the way, if you haven’t been watching Linkara’s History of Power Rangers, begin doing so now by clicking here. It’s morphenomenal!
And if you’d like to see pictures from Power Morphicon this weekend, including a kick-ass Green Ranger Ninjetti cosplay check out The Official Power Ranger Morphicon Convention on Facebook right here.
Those Death Stars don’t pay for themselves, you know.
If anyone hasn’t seen the news story about Darth Vader robbing a bank, click here. If you have seen it, click there anyway. It’s still ridiculous.
And for another hilarious, but less illegal, example of Star Wars cosplay click here for Improv Everywhere’s subway rendition of Star Wars.
You might’ve noticed that Shot Glasses is now being updated on Mondays. Sorry for the lack of warning. You might also notice other changes to the site in upcoming weeks, including a new logo(!).
This idea isn’t too far fetched. DC Comics and Warner Bros. are both owned by Time Warner. And now that I’m writing this, I realize that they actually already tried something sort of like this with Loonatics Unleashed, so…
Rob’s just trying to get out of his end of the bet. He doesn’t really think it was a good movie. No one does.
“The laws of chance suggest that something should have gone right. Not here.”
The Last Airbender is so bad, it borders on vindictive. I honestly believe that Avatar: The Last Airbender angered M. Night somehow (maybe one of his kids said it was better than Lady in the Water?) and he made this movie solely to get his revenge by maliciously ripping all of the humor and character and suspense and tension and romance and drama and epic action out of the franchise, leaving it a soulless shell of its former self. In 3D.
At least, I hope that’s the reason behind this. I’d hate to think something like this was created with good intentions.
