Culture Yourself: Japan's Golden Week
The end of April and the beginning of May is a very special time in Japan, known as Golden Week. During this particular week, four holidays (Showa Day, Constitution Memorial Day, Greenery Day, and Children’s Day) occur back-to-back in what has got to be the worst time to hit the grocery store ever. The week got its signature moniker due to the spike in revenue many businesses see during that time, as most offices shut down and people are free to go to the movies or catch up on their shopping. (See! Our suspicion about how crowded the grocery store would be has merit!)
IDW Gets 'Rocky and Bullwinkle'

‘Iron Man 3' Intl. Opening Beats ‘Avengers’ Record
You’ve got to give it Tony Stark and his alter ego Iron Man: They definitely know how to put on a show. This past week, Disney/Marvel’s Iron Man 3 posted phenomenal numbers in Europe during its first week at the box office, prior to its May 3 U.S. opening. The big summer tentpole brought in over $195.2 million from 42 markets, beating 2012’s The Avengers, which had a $185.1 million opening week. In comparison, Iron Man 2 had a $100 million international opening in 2010.
The Bartkira Project: Where The Simpsons Meets Akira
In its twenty-four years on the air, FOX's iconic animated series The Simpsons has covered quite a few storylines and tropes. In fact, they've famously done so many stories that long-running rival, South Park, devoted an episode to the fact entitled "Simpsons Already Did It." But one thing that Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and the rest of Springfield's colorful cast of characters haven't done is starred in a recreation of Katsuhiro Otomo's landmark manga series Akira. Fortunately, the Internet is one giant wish fulfillment machine and two intrepid artists, Ryan Humphrey and James Harvey, are spearheading the cleverly titled Bartkira Project, a crowdsourced attempt to transform all six volumes of Otomo's masterpiece into a Simpsonified remake. Bart as Kaneda? Milhouse as Tetsuo? This might just be the rare case in which The Simpsons didn't do it first.
