Thank You from the Zaxy Ladies [2 comments]

January 3, 2012

Dear Zaxy Reader,

Thank you so much for all of the love and support you’ve given us over the last couple years. We’ve had a blast sharing our thoughts about the newest games, movies, memes and silly toys. Unfortunately, our lives have filled up with some pretty exciting opportunities, and we need to take a step back from blogging on Zaxy to focus on our individual pursuits. We’re all still around online, and we encourage you to check out our other projects!

You, Me and Optimus Prime [Add a comment]

December 27, 2011

Take a few minutes today to look back to when you were a kid. What kind of “pretend” did you play most? What were your favorite toys? James Struthers apparently wanted to be BFFs with Optimus Prime. Awesome choice!

(Me? I always played “Peter Pan”, and would fight with my girlfriends over who got to be Tiger Lily. Wendy was too whiny, no one ever wanted to be her!)

More Humble Indie Bundle! [Add a comment]

December 13, 2011

Still looking for Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate) gifts? Buy up a couple of these at the price of your choice and you’ll be set.

This newest bundle includes Jamestown, Bit. Trip Runner, Super Meat Boy, Shank, Night Sky HD, AND Gratuitous Space Battles and Cave Story if you purchase it for more than the average (which is currently just about $5). Not too shabby! As always, the money goes towards the developers, Child’s Play, and the American Red Cross.

Get the bundle at HumbleBundle.com. Now who on your gift list is going to love this the most?

TMNT Tell You To Stay Away From Pot [3 comments]

December 12, 2011

Things I’ve learned today:
Michelangelo is high.
Calling people a turkey is an awesome insult.
There are people out there that have TONS of pot, and are insulted if you don’t take it from them.

Thanks, Ninja Turtles!

(And thanks to Jorge_Z for sending my way!)

Community Theme Crossovers [Add a comment]

December 8, 2011

Community is a fantastic, wonderful show. So what could be better than combining it with two other amazing shows to create these hilarious show theme parodies?

I give you, Community, as 30 Rock:

And as Parks And Recreation!

These video parodies were created as a continued effort to help save Community from the impending hiatus NBC has put the show on. If you’re a fan of Community, please, tell everyone you know to watch it. Help keep great TV on the air. #SixSeasonsAndAMovie

How Nerdy is Too Nerdy? [5 comments]


Man, I never knew Katrina Bowden was such a NERD. Would you be able to keep up with this much nerd?
(The ending of this is pretty much every Zaxy sleepover that’s ever happened.)

BEST MUG EVER. [1 comment]

December 7, 2011

The holidays are right around the corner, and that means it’s nearing closer to the time when you freak the frak’ out because you can’t think of anything to buy for ANYONE.

But never fear! Britt is here with an awesome idea for an expensive stocking stuffer, perfect for that favorite coffee liquid drinking person in your life.

Yeah, this is a thing that almost everyone needs in their life. Heck, it could even double as a pot so you can, you know, grow a piranha plant in it.

To purchase this bad boy for yourself, check out Fangamer!

iPhone Games IRL [1 comment]

This band/video is the perfect mix of charm and randomness. I’m in love.

Also, I TOTALLY want to play angry birds on a trampoline. Holy cow!

Zombies and Superheroes! [3 comments]

December 2, 2011

What happens when you combine zombies, superheroes, guns, blood, pretty girls and upbeat dance music?

Behold.

The musical artist, Alex Day, is a good friend of mine – as is the guy who directed the music video, most of the zombies and the “female love interest”.

But I wouldn’t ever post anything just to promote friends; I legitimately think this video is super creative as well as expertly executed. The effects are cheesy, the costumes homemade – but that’s where the charm lies.

They took the overdone zombie cliché, combined it with the ever growing superhero trend, and with that, created a product that transcends them both to highlight the most important thing of all… friendship. D’aww.
