Since the Dork Dimension has gone through a few design revisions, I thought I'd archive past Dork Dimension designs. I like to keep screenshots of past graphics and website designs so that I have a full history of the design process.
Toxic Crusaders toyline, I've been fascinated with Playmates action figures from the early 90's. They're so colorful and imaginative that they seem to personify everything that makes a toy fun. Action figures these days have a tendency to look like miniature statues, which is great if you're looking for a precise rendition of a character, but it's not so great if you're looking for fun toys.
If you've been reading this blog you've probably realized that I'm a huge Star Trek fan. But since I heard this new movie would be a bit of a departure from the Trek norm, I took some time before I saw it to define what I consider to be "great Star Trek". The best I could come up with is that "great Star Trek" features likable and respectable characters using cool technology in a thought-provoking situation. (By "thought-provoking" I specifically mean that either the story is a metaphorical commentary for some aspect of society, or it explores new and interesting scientific theories.)
Being a DC kid, I was never a huge fan of Wolverine. That's not to say that I disliked the character; I do acknowledge the coolness of Wolverine with his awesome costume and sweet powers. However, that's pretty much all I know about Wolverine... his character development is buried in hundreds of comics that I never read. So it was with a relatively blank slate that I walked in the theater to watch X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
I love cherry soda. And yet, I hate real cherries. There's something about that fake cherry syrup that they put in cherry soda that's just awesome. So this month's poll asks which is your go-to cherry soda. (I'm grouping diet with the full-blown soda of the same name, so if you like Diet Cherry Coke, you can just choose Cherry Coke.) If you have a favorite that isn't listed, please comment below. And if you hate cherry soda (for some weird reason), there's a choice for you, too.
