ThunderCats Roar Creator Victor Courtright's Hairstyle Is Dumb

I don't know if no one can just tell him out of fear that it has something to do with his sexuality, but even if it were that, that hairstyle is still dumb.

Because Warner Bros Animation and Sam Register who works there have to keep doing it, they're re-re-doing ThunderCats again. ThunderCats was attempted as a reboot a few years back and well it looked amazing, but it didn't have immediate great toy sales so it was cancelled...is one of the rumors as why it ended. This new version, ThunderCats Roar looks like a good mix of indie fun for both adults and kids. It won't be out until 2019.

However, that still doesn't stop how much everyone should pick on ThunderCats Roar creator Victor Courtright for putting a scrunchie in his hair when he's a grown man.

I don't know what sex he goes by, but it doesn't matter when it still makes you look like an adult male who wants to dress his hair like he's in pre-school. It's not a man bun.

I'm gonna assume his mom's dead or he's dead to her, because she would never want to see her son looking like that.

And if you watch the video below, the camera is trying to hide the fact he has the scrunchie.

HangTime at Knott's Berry Farm & Queen Mary Observation Wheel Open Today

-Opening this May 18th we have the new HangTime at Knott's Berry Farm. It only happens to give you a 15-story drop and, well it looks freaking crazy. Five gravity-defying inversions are gonna pull whatever hat you're wearing right off. And from other looks online, your feet don't touch anything. So there kind of hanging a bit free. I'm kind of sad it's not opening Mother's Day, just for some great videos of Moms hating their kids for going on it.

-The Queen Mary just got a new attraction that opened today too.


"Believed to be the largest traveling observation wheel in the Western Hemisphere, guests can sip on beverages (alcohol is available for purchase), enjoy company of up to 6-8 people per cabin, and take in the birds-eye view of the picturesque Long Beach sky line and the majestic Queen Mary within the climate-controlled cabins. Enjoy the one-of-a-kind Observation Wheel with family and friends during the day starting at 11am, or dazzle-up the experience and enjoy the Observation Wheel after dark as the ride impresses with over half a million LED lights."

Round 1 Coming To Burbank Mall ... 2019

Well, the Burbank Town Center will finally have something in it new and worth going to. Sure, it's open now, but there hasn't been anything that amazing or new that sets itself up as a redone mall...until now.

We just spotted on the Round 1 site, that by 2019, Burbank will get a Round 1. Round 1 is like a much better version of Dave & Buster's. It's an arcade, bowling alley and karaoke parlor all in one. And it's home base is in Japan, so they have a ton of special arcade games we never get here in the US.

There are three Round 1s a bit far out of LA, but if you visit them it's crazy how big they are, the list of arcade titles and all the different stuff you can play. I mean the manage to cram in darts and ping pong too and a little diner for cheap eats.

This will probably kill the All Amusement Fun Center Arcade that's already there, that had a lot of controversy about having to leave when the construction started. Eeeesssh.

Holy Axe Murderer, Batman!

Here's a short report on the sentencing of a man involving a Batman costume and a homemade axe who killed his friend in one of our outer cities, y'know we call them the waste lands here at TTDILA, in Azusa.

"On Sept. 5, 2016, Wade lured Rahkeem Reyes, a professional dancer who went by the name "Rocky," to his house. The defendant had promised Reyes that he would make him a Batman suit for a convention but never produced it, the prosecutor said. Instead, he killed him with a homemade ax.

Reyes' body was found five days later in Azusa Canyon."

Wade was sentenced 26 years to life in prison.

* Wouldn't it have been weird if he put a finished Batman costume on the deceased?
