El Santo Sea Alabado

In honor of the 99th birthday of one of the most important luchadors in Lucha Libre history, El Santo, check out this 5 part animated miniseries created by award-winning writer and producer Carlo Olivares Paganoni featuring the Silver-Masked One battling a band of evil clones!

Steam Factor One

50 years ago, a strange, unique science fiction adventure show kicked off its 3 season run on NBC with the tale of a simple country doctor falling in love with a shape-shifting salt vampire. Ever since these humble origins, the Star Trek franchise has been going strong, with various additions and re-imaginings of the mythos created by both fans and professionals alike. One of the most popular Star Trek fan films is a loving, well-crafted tribute to both Trek and silent films by the name of Steam Trek: The Moving Picture. Directed and co-written by British animator Dennis Sisterson, this hilarious 1994 film details a typical mission aboard the USS Isambard gone awry, thanks to the interference of derby-donning Klingons. With a suitably whimsical score, faithful imagery and inspired characterizations (especially the Harold Lloyd-esque Spock), this short remains one of the top examples of a standout fan production!

Hope you enjoy it and…well, you know.
