I’m excited to announce a very #nerdjizz contest! Starting today, Monday, January 27th, and lasting until February 26th, every person who signs up for a at least a month membership to CockyBoys through a #nerdjizz link will be entered to win a copy of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.
It’s really that easy. If you sign up for a membership, you get entered to win. Winners will be chosen on the 27th of February and announced the next day! The 28th happens to be the day that the new Tomb Raider comic series launches, so how’s that for (completely intended) coincidences!?

I’m not the biggest fan in the world of The Neighbourhood. The song of theirs that went everywhere this past summer “Sweater Weather” is okay and all, but I was disappointed to learn that despite the King’s English spelling of the band name, the lads were not in fact from the UK. They’re a group of guys from California. All that being said, they released a video for their latest single “Afraid” wherein the lead singer just wanted to be naked. Being the proponent of peen that I am, I present to you here, uncensored, the video for “Afraid”
Note – there’s actually only like one second of cock in the whole thing, but tbh, it’s pretty nicely sized for a flaccid wang. Screencap below.
And for good measure, here’s a pic of the lead singer’s bum as well as a gif of him being a total heteroflexible goober:
I realized recently that I’ve been reading a lot of comics – albeit mostly from DC publishing – and I haven’t been giving reviews or recommendations about the shit-ton of stuff I’ve been reading.
So, I’m going to kick off a new weekly feature right here that’s already being done pretty well on many many many other websites around the net, but the internet is nothing if not redundant. My top two picks this week are:
The loss of J.H. Williams III has not gone unnoticed in this series. He essentially established the modern Batwoman to audiences, but DC (as they are often wont to do with their most talented writers and artists) edged him out of what was essentially his series. Not to mention, the first 20 issues of this series have far and away some of the best art found in any comic series in the last decade. But, the series and its heroine are still going on – which, lets be honest, is preferable to having it cancelled outright. Kate’s facing a new arachnid-styled foe, and the story pacing is decent. The art will never get back to where it was, but in terms of story, this thankfully isn’t like last year when Gail Simone was kicked off of Batgirl for two excruciating issues.
Walking Dead #120
There are a lot of fans of the television adaptation of The Walking Dead who haven’t really ever ventured into reading any comic books, let alone the source material for the top rated cable show on television. If you are one of those people, that’s totally fine. The two exist surprisingly well as separate but related entities. (Much better than, say, the True Blood show and the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Mystery Series of novels. IMHO.) That being said, if you’re not looking for what may or may not end up as inspiration for a future spoiler in the show, don’t read the comics. If you are, then don’t start here. Start back with episode 100 where some seriously twisted shit went down, and work your way forward to this issue. #120 is the halfway mark in the current 12 issue arc, and damned if it isn’t a good one. The survivors in Rick’s group are about to undergo another radical change in their livelihoods. I’ll leave it at that.
Nintendo just released this bit of information via Twitter within the last hour announcing that *GASP* the Pokémon Bank service has indeed launched in a few Asian countries and that it might just be on its way to North America soon!
Pokémon Bank has launched in certain Asian countries. (1/2)
Lara Croft is one of my personal heroes. I loved the original Tomb Raider when I was a kid because there was a pretty heavy emphasis on running and jumping and action. I grew up with a huge back yard, and an adjacent forest so big, the limits of my imagination were never reached. Lara was the first high-profile digital representation of a non-cartoonish, non-hetero male, non-militaristic, non-space-suited protagonist. Sure she had quite a few qualities which are not quite relatable – she’s an heiress, has a wildly exaggerated bust size, and is essentially an olympic-level gymnast. But still she provided, for me at least, an engaging fantasy avatar.
Crystal Dynamics relaunched the series last year bringing a more somber tone, a multilayered heroine and an engaging combat system. Camilla Luddington of Grey’s Anatomy lent her voice to this new Lara, and quite frankly, it’s some of the best voice acting in a video game and rivals some of the top talent in a year of utterly amazing voice work in video games.
Unsatisfied to let a good thing rest on its laurels, Crystal Dynamics rebuilt the entire game from the ground up to introduce it to the next generation of consoles, specifically the Xbox One and the Playstation 4. Since both new consoles utilize completely different and more advanced processors than the generation prior, a simple port wouldn’t suffice. IGN offered a comparison between previous and current gen versions:
This is a game that I’ve already completed three times because I loved the narrative and the gameplay so much, so it’s a no-brainer that I’m going to pick up the Definitive Edition for my Xbox One when it launches next week. Hell, I bought the collectors edition last time around with the Lara Croft action figure. Yep. Not even sorry about it. I very seriously recommend you play Tomb Raider if you haven’t already – especially if you’ve never played any of the previous games. It’s such a wonderful new start for Lara. It is the reboot by which all reboots should be judged.
AND there’s a comic book being released next month to serve as an official bridge between the end of this game and the beginning of next! It’s being written by Gail Simon of Batgirl, The Movement, Birds of Prey, Red Sonja, and Secret Six fame, so I have full faith the story will be handled expertly.
Check back here later today for an exciting announcement from #nerdjizz regarding your chance to own a copy of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.
Tonight in the gym I was checking Twitter, as I often do between sets to check out dudes rest properly, and I noticed that Zach over at Str8UpGayPorn spotted a mutual friend on the ol’ boob tube! PornoBobbie was spotted in Sunday’s premiere episode of new gay HBO show Looking! That is neat. Click the image to view the original post, including the clip @ S^GP.
Any time a friend of mine has any kind of cool success story, my mind immediately plays this classic Liz Lemon jingle:
And I just saved 15% on car insurance 14% on jockstraps.
Jockstrap Central has another handy sitewide sale going on right now. To celebrate the new year of our lord 2014, you can save 14% off of everything in the store. Neat! No minimum purchase required to take advantage, so head on over and load up. The sale ends Wednesday!
The band On an On have been on my radar for a while, but not overtly so. In the last month, maybe longer, I discovered their cover of Hot Chip’s “Boy From School.” It’s not new – and for the record I’d never heard Hot Chip’s original before now – but it’s new to me so that’s good enough to warrant a post.
This live version performed at KZME’s “Sessions From The Box” is damn faithful to the record cut, so enjoy:
