Holy Taco Meets the Suicide Girls

This past weekend Holy Taco managing editor Ian Fortey, currently typing about himself in the 3rd person, headed to Toronto, Ontario to attend Fan Expo. You already saw how his heart was broken by Lou Ferrigno (if not, go read it) but what you did not learn was how some delightful ladies called the Suicide Girls helped put that shattered man back together again.

This Book is Full of Spiders: a Review

Literary criticism has somewhat curled up and died over the years and now we’re at a point where reviews are torn between “I love/hate this book because pew pew awesome raawr!” and “This book displays certain tropes and mimetic principles that onomatopoeia feminism Jungian archetypes blah shit merp.” Does any of that make you want to read the book? Why would you read a book review at all, what’s the point? To find out why it is either good or not good. David Wong’s This Book is Full of Spiders is a good book. You should read it.

The Day I Didn’t Meet Lou Ferrigno

I was supposed to meet Lou Ferrigno. But I didn’t. I was attending Toronto’s Fan Expo from August 23rd to 26th. My plan? To met Lou Ferrigno and challenge him to a fight on camera. Then to put the video of the fight on Break.com and HolyTaco and see how long before someone in the comments calls me gay. Because that is what commenters do.

Reviewing Movies We Haven’t Seen: August 24th

Last week was a shameful event at the movies (or not, depending on your tastes) but this week is going straight up subtle with offerings that are all pretty much flying under the radar. To the movies!

An Open Letter to Up and Coming Disney Stars

S’up? You guys just hanging out? That’s cool. Pretty def, huh? And maybe phat? Yeah. So listen, I don’t want to come off sounding like a square adult, or some kind of unhip shitbird (kids still say that, right?) but I need you to be prepared for what’s coming.

5 Planets Not Run by Apes

You can’t trust a planet of the apes and I’ll tell you why – it’s run by apes. We all love a chimpanzee when they’re wearing t-shirts and engaging in delightful antics, but the downside is that every so often a chimp can and will take a person’s face and/or limbs off. That’s not even a joke, Google it.

The Morning Jolt: Europe Hates Your Car

Obviously I've never driven any car from Europe because I take the bus, but for all their griping they do have a point that we love to make really shitty dashboards. That said, what's a European dashboard made of?

A Game of Hodor vs The Walking Carl

It is dark and it is cold and everything should be still and peaceful. Everything is not. The forest has shed its forest sounds. There are no birds in trees, nor even insects. There is no breeze. But there is the crunch of leaves, felled branches and twigs. Deadfall, they call it. They call it deadfall.

Reviewing Movies we Haven’t Seen: August 17th

This is arguably one of the biggest weeks for movies in ages, not because it has a certified blockbuster like every week since May, but because it doesn’t. In fact, it has a lot of movies that are uniquely tailored to different audiences making it a week that will likely be almost sort of interesting. Almost. Not a challenge to call, though.

6 Saddest Places Penises Have Had to be Freed From

The penis is the strangest animal you’ll ever meet. It stands proud when it’s happy, shrinks like a fearful puppy when it’s scared or cold and it also humps stuff. All kinds of stuff. And not just normal stuff like other people or Fleshlights, but nutty stuff that you should have enough self awareness to keep your junk away from. But if that were the case, this article wouldn’t exist.
