It Has Been Revealed That Hello Kitty Is Not A Cat!?!

Hello-Kitty2

(PCM) I am seriously having trouble wrapping my head around this one, however the news has just been revealed by Sanrio that Hello Kitty is actually not a cat! Yes, you read that correctly…the cartoon character with the pointy ears and very CAT like whiskers is not actually a cat!

The incredibly pop culture icon is actually a child, a little girl to be exact. The curator for the current L.A. exhibition focused on all things Hello Kitty revealed that the Sanrio company informed her that “Hello Kitty is not a cat. She’s a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She’s never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature. She does have a pet cat of her own, however, and it’s called Charmmy Kitty.”

The curator goes on to explain that Hello Kitty is a “perpetual third-grader” and has a twin sister that lives in London. We also learned that Hello Kitty’s actual name is Kitty White and she is a Scorpio!

Being a huge Hello Kitty fan, I am not overly sure how this news is sitting with me right now, but something about looking at Hello Kitty as an actual little girl is somewhat disturbing. I think I could have probably lived without this little tid-bit of information.

What’s the most you would pay for a comic book? Do you have any first appearances of iconic superhero characters? On Monday August 25th 2014, Superman’s first appearance in Action Comics #1 sold for a record amount. Action Comics Number 1 sold at auction on Ebay for $3,207,852.00

Ebay Sells Action Comics No. 1 for over 3 Million Dollars

Ebay Sells Action Comics No. 1 for over 3 Million Dollars

A previous copy sold for over 2 million, however it was not in mint condition. The copy of Action Comics No. 1 sold on August 25th 2014 is said to be in mint condition.

The previous owner had taken down a lot of money in the sale, but remember, Ebay gets a full 10 percent on the gross sale. Ebay made a killing in the sale too earning $300,000 on the sale. Great money for an entity that didn’t take care of the comic book for over 70 years. Do you think it’s fair Ebay earns so much from auctions?

(PCM) It was no secret that the late Robin Williams was a video game fan and one of his favorites was the MMORPG giant World of Warcraft. The news has just been announced that Blizzard the company behind World of Warcraft has agreed to immortalize Williams as a non-playable in-game characters.

Shortly, after Williams’ death a petition was created at Change.org by his fans in an attempt to get Blizzard to place a Robin Williams character in the game. Blizzard paid attention and posted the following tweet:

Williams played on World of Warcraft’s Mannoroth server and was known for being an extreme PC builder for gaming purposes. He would build his own overclocked and super-cooled systems.

The non-playable Williams character is rumored to perform his best jokes at the World’s End Tavern, where two stand-up comedian performer characters also perform.

No word has been given as to when the Williams character will make its’ appearance in the game.

Burt Jenner Shares A T-Shirt Featuring Kim Kardashian’s “Ugly Crying Face”

 

Kim-Kardashian-crying

(PCM) Burt Jenner, the older stepbrother of Kim Kardashian, is known as the quiet brother and one who definitely spends his time outside of the spotlight that seemingly follows his famous family everywhere they travel.

Taking a major dig at his stepsister, Jenner posted a photo that features a mosaic of six pictures that all feature Kim’s infamous “ugly crying face” on a t-shirt.  He captioned the post with “My new favorite shirt…”.  Ouch!

The shirt was created to mock an episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” where sister Kourtney reveals to Kim that she has an “ugly crying face”…not that anyone truly looks good when they are crying!

Burt Jenner is the son of Bruce Jenner and his first wife Chrystie Crownover and his a co-owner of Jenner Racing with his father and brother Brandon Jenner.

Now the only other question we have is where can we get our hands on one of those shirts…Christmas is less than six months away!
