Hyper Realistic Superhero Portraits Are Amazing and Terrifying



  1. Fantastic blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?

    There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..

    Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

  2. We’re a bunch of volunteers and opening a brand new scheme in
    our community. Your site provided us with helpful info to work on.
    You have performed a formidable process and our entire community will probably
    be thankful to you.

  3. Piece of writing writing is also a excitement, if you be familiar with afterward you can write otherwise it is
    complicated to write.

  4. Kyle says:

    Pecan – like the bullet noise. I’m sure it’s all in the dialect and it works either way but my family had a pecan orchard for years and we always pronounced it like the ricochet.

  5. Lisa says:

    PETE! I love your Kumail impression! You’re exactly right….it’s so accurate and so wrong at the same time. Love it. I want you to do that for an entire episode.

  6. laura says:

    These two together dropkick joy over the fence.

    Have you ever had a sauvignon blanc at 4 in the afternoon?

  7. Smith says:

    Kremer seems like an eminently likable guy. Hadn’t heard his stuff before this, and the bit of research I did on Summah makes it very appealing. Thanks for introducing me to someone new, Pete.

  8. Alec says:

    Pete, have you been watching a documentary on jai alai, or something? It seems like it’s been getting mentioned a lot, recently.

  9. Tom Steele says:

    Hey Kyle, What about breakfast at Tiffany’s?

  10. Josh T says:

    I jumped on here to pass on the H. H. Holmes, info but it looks like we are covered here. Pete’s listening to his Stuff to Blow Your Mind, cause I just learned that penis head fact.

    Also, you will have at least 1 weirdo in Peoria, IL, I can make the trek up.

  11. Kyle S. says:

    Nineties high-five, Val. When I move to Allison Road I want you to be my neighbor. We’ll have dog parties.

  12. PrinceVal says:

    “All your thoughts on God” is a line from Counting Blue Cars by Dishwalla. I am not ashamed that I knew that off the top of my head.

  13. anna says:

    haha! i watched my co-worker walk out of a bar and hop on his bike and peddle off in the middle of a night out with friends. the next day at work he said “sorry i gave ya the ol’ irish goodbye.” i found it to be quite funny.

  14. Jesse says:

    Love Howard, can’t wait to listen!

  15. Todd Mason says:

    Actually, it’s not clear whether he was actually named Holmes or Mudgett…the guy knew how to cover his tracks. But the writer and editor Anthony Boucher (real name, William White) reviewed crime fiction for THE NEW YORK TIMES in the ’50s and ’60s as Boucher and at the same time for THE NEW YORK HERALD TRIBUNE as H. H. Holmes…and as the founding co-editor of THE MAGAZINE OF FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION, he wrote humorous verse fillers for the magazine as Herman Mudgett. (I believe Boucher was also the first to publish an English translation of Jorge Luis Borges, and he conducted a nationally-syndicated opera radio show from the Pacifica station in Berkeley.) Robert Bloch, who created Norman Bates in writing the novel PSYCHO, also wrote a novel inspired by Holmes at the World’s Fair, AMERICAN GOTHIC, and a long work of nonfiction, about twenty/25 years before Larsen’s DEVIL,
    “Doctor Holmes’s Murder Castle”:

  16. Pete Holmes says:

    Holy shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!!!

  17. Eric says:

    I don’t want to completely blow your mind, but Henry Howard Holmes is the alias of Herman Mudgett, a serial killer from the 1800’s who ran a “castle” in chicago who murdered up to 200 people in his super crazy chicago castle hotel.
