The Pixar movie we won't see. NEWT.

I so eagerly anticipated NEWT when I had heard the premise; "What happens when the last remaining male and female blue-footed newts on the planet are forced together by science to save the species, and they can't stand each other? Newt and Brooke embark on a perilous, unpredictable adventure and discover that finding a mate never goes as planned, even when you only have one choice. Love, it turns out, is not a science."
Sadly, the film has been canceled, but Pixar has been cool enough to post some pictures of what could have been. Check em out.

Obsession of the Week: OC Foodie Fest 2010

Sick of your standard roach coaches? The new breed of food truck is here and rollin their delicious cuisine to the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA on August 28th. 50 gourmet food trucks will gather to change your opinion of mobile food from 11a to 7p next Saturday. These trucks are insanely delicious and reasonably priced, and the food fest is a great introduction to the trucks that frequent LA and OC. Still not convinced you want food from a truck? Check out Food Network's new show "The Great Food Truck Race" which features 3 trucks from So Cal that will make appearances at the Food Fest; Crepes Bonabarte, NaNa Queen, and Nom Nom Truck. Some of my other favorites that will be there include: Dim Sum Truck, Dos Chinos, Frysmith, Lee's Philly, LudoTruck (owned by Ludo Lefebvre of Top Chef Masters), and Piaggio On Wheels.
Click the image above to get linked to the official website for the event and buy tickets. It should be a great experience if you like to get your eat on with some delicious foods. omnomnom.

I Want This: Sega Genesis GenMobile

In 1995 Sega released the Nomad, a portable gaming device that played your Sega Genesis cartridges on the go. The Nomad was/ is one of the coolest gaming devices on the planet. Its the size of like 4 PSPs, uses AA batteries like they are going out of style, and has a very sad, very 90's screen. It is revered by collectors, however, for being comfortable, having stereo audio, and it's ability to play Genesis games on the go. With all that amazingness, for some strange reason, it wasn't until last year that we got a new way to play Genesis games on a portable console. The GenMobile is an officially licensed Sega Genesis console made by AtGames. It's kinda cheapy plastic, the screen is a small 2.4 inch LCD, and the audio is mono and eh. But, the new system is light, only about 5.5 inches across, has a bright screen, amazing battery life, and has 20 games preinstalled. Of course, the most important part for me is it's ability to play cartridges. I can't wait to play my favorites again; Primal Rage, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Movie, Aladdin, Comix Zone, Columns, Mortal Kombat, and of course Sonic 2. It retails about $40, if you can find it, and games are cheap now-a-days. So if you miss playing Genesis, and need your fix on the go, check out the GenMobile :)

Comic-Con Obsession: Sora Avatar

Just got back from San Diego Comic-Con 2010, and while there was probably a lot to fall in love with... I fell in love all over again with this little guy. If you don't recognize him, he's a super cute chibi representation of Sora from Kingdom Hearts. Comic-Con 09 I grabbed this little dude on a phone keychain thingy, and this year they had a new set including Halloweentown Sora. But what really had me excited were little 3 inch figures of what they call Kingdom Hearts Avatars. The 3 inch figs were attached to the cash registers at Square Enix's booth, and they told me they weren't available to the public yet. I want! They were insanely cute. Here's some pix of the keychain thingys available now, and I'll keep you in the know if I hear anything about the 3 inchers. Also, there is a big Sora Avatar available now through the website for like $129. Adorable, but not what I'm stoked for. Click the image above to see that.

Obsession of the Day: American Apparel Summer 2010 Nail Lacquer Collection

6 hot new colors are out from AA to complement their Summer collection. The formulas are a not too much better this time around, but the colors are choice. There are the 4 depicted in the photo above; Malibu Green, L'esprit, Butter, and Summer Peach. There is also a cool Khaki color that I really wanna snag called California Trooper (in honor of our states beloved CHP) and a clear base/top coat (that no one is going to buy). The colors are PERFECTLY suited for the weird Wintery Summer we have been having out here on the golden coast. Check out AA's site by clicking the pic above to see all the polish offerings.
