Yo, as you probably heard on da grapevine, this week is Comi-Con, which is the world’s greatest place for all of the coolest posters for movies that won’t come out for three years. It’s basically like the Juggalo’s Gathering but for nerds awesome dudes, and super cool girls (who will one day be the first girl president probably) (and that’s fresh!). Anyway, today is the second day of the convention (very niiiiice!). There’s already been lots of bodacious activity, like James Cameron, who directed some movie called Titanic, which I think was a documentary about jewelry but whatevs, he has a new movie coming out called Avatar and he screened the first 25 minutes of it. Whoops, look at me boring you with all this Grandpa Talk (talking is a word old people use that means Human IM). I know what you really want. TWILIGHT NEWZ!

Check out our photo gallery of all the cool Twilight stuff at this year’s Comi-Con. JIGGY WITH IT!

  1. Am I a nerd to be pumped for the new Tron? Even if that’s mostly because Daft Punk is doing the soundtrack?

      Is it wrong to love that he said “aughts” slang? Can we start using “aughts” now? Is that – is that allowed now? Because I wants it.

  3. I love Videogum Teen Korner.

  4. The caption on #6 slayed me

  5. If you are going to keep making jokes like “I would like to be the Charon to this undead dreamboat,” then please make this a regular feature. Also, CHECK OUT THAT RAD GALLERY FEATURE.

  6. That Twilight girl would be so much fun to do drugs with.

  7. You almost make me feel guilty about having a four day pass to ComicCon. But then I got to see lots of new footage from Where The Wild Things Are, and now I just feel smugly superior.

  8. Who will play Kato?

  9. How many fourteen-year-olds just Googled “Minor Threat”?

  10. The Real Housewives of Comi-con are making me sad.

    At least according to the sweaty haters sand-walking through Times Square:



  13. OH, I’M SORRY, KRISTEN STEWART. Are we BORING YOU? You would rather be skating in your sold gold new pool that your gazillion dollars from the Twilight enterprise has bought you and blasting this new band you totally just heard of called Minor Threat instead of at ComicCon which is SO BORING you are SO OVER IT, where girls are dressed as Anime characters and boys are dressed as DC Comics superheros and you are getting paid to do all this? Fuck girl, it has just got to suck being you. I’d trade places with her just to be at ComicCon instead of ACTUAL WORK. (Caps due to the 13 year old in me being invoked by Teen Korner.)

      Uh, What? Yeah, I’m Kristen.. I’m so much better than all you nerds. And so unbelivably awesome that I don’t have to care. for real. Like, I know so many deep ineresting things about life. This guy at the bar told me so. Who are these people? I can’t believe I’m here. Ugh, people who adore me are so effing annoying.

  14. Ew, Videogum Teen Korner is grody-to-the-MAX!……PSYCH! j/k, I heart Videogum Teen Korner 4eva. Anybody wanna trade some pogs for this sweet holographic slammer?! Thx ;-)

      you know it, homie-g! that thing is freshizzle, yo! (I shouldn’t be so bad at this as I am actually still 19 (and thus, a teen))
      I’ve got a whole set of Power Ranger ones, so wanna meet in front of that wicked rad pretzel shop in the mall to trade ‘em?
      Teen Korner is so non-non-non heinous!

      (PS, sorry I accidentally posted this twice.. the first time it didn’t go in reply)

    This is the saddest thing I have ever seen. Not only are they laughably suggesting that because somebody wears a Hot Topic t-shirt they automatically go home at night and stick on Out of Step but they also explain who Minor Threat are. MTV are having to explain who Minor Threat are. Let me repeat that. MTV ARE HAVING TO EXPLAIN WHO MINOR THREAT ARE. Sad.

  16. Since this is the Teen Korner, I feel totally justified in talking about having sex with Kristen Stewart.

  18. As an actual teen, this post is my entire life. You really hit this one on the head, Gabe.

    I hate my generation.

  20. Kind of a non-sequitur, but when William Shatner’s there, does he yell, “Welcome to Comic-Khaaaaaaaan!”

  21. I like when Gabe talks derisively about us lame, gross “nerds”, right before he leaves his day job writing a pop culture blog (ironically, bro) for his real job as a weight-lifting, sky-diving, professional football player secret agent who has sex with all the ladies. Basically, I’m not even a man in comparison to him.

    Here freshly purchased minor threat shirt makes high school me want to make pick on her.

  23. Kristin Stewart looks really hot with a Joan Jett mullet… just sayin’.

    Normally, one could argue she ‘acts’ but she doesn’t because blinking and stuttering isn’t really acting.

  26. Your captions are priceless!

    I wonder if Taylor showed off his six pack abs again.

  28. Am I the only one who enjoys Twilight? Or likes Kristen Stewart?

    Obvs, I read/watch it in a different context than I’d read/watch The Possibility of an Island/The Wire, inasmuch as I recognize that it’s silly and has nothing to say about anything I find important and that its target audience is teenage girls. But I really do like it, in the same vein (I think!) that I like Gossip Girl, and it’s really confusing to me that many here enjoy that show with its convoluted/ridiculous plots and pretty bad acting and its target audience being teenage girls, but then reflexively dismiss Twilight for being exactly that.

    Also! Kristen Stewart is a babe and was pretty good in Adventureland (also surprisingly fun!).

    What I’m trying to say is that I’m lonely and insecure and need people to validate my enjoyment of stuff. Does nobody else like this junk?


    • Sounds like Teen Korner is gonna need a guidance counselor soon…

    • i read the books and thought they sucked. but i read them all, so i should shut up.
      i won’t see the movie because i have only recently pulled myself out of a troublingly intense crush on r. pattz and i am a grown woman and need to pull it together.
      i don’t watch gossip girl.
      but i can relate with you because of my secret, alienating-from-the-videogum-fold vice: i really like gwyneth paltrow.
      when i heard she was doing a newletter, i subscribed because she’s pretty and cute and funny and seems like she’d be fun to be friends with. she’d be my friend who said embarrassingly narrow-minded things, since she’s been rich forever, and we’d tease her about it and she’d laugh it off because she’s awesome.
      and i am alone here.
      but i don’t care because i have good self-esteem, and i can self-validate.

    OOPS! Sorry wondergrrl! I totes didn’t realize u were also called grrl! I don’t wanna b a poser! LOL! Sorry!

  31. my favorite picture is of the twilight moms, especially the two who are near tears.. shouldn’t they know know better at that age?

  32. Did anyone else notice the girl behind the girl holding the sign in the first picture? She’s totally poppin’ some pimples!

  33. I’m now 19 and experiencing being a dad. I must say although it feels good it’s still hard. I knew it wouldn’t be easy but to be honest, the hard part is having to balance time. My daughter is great and makes managing her never dreadful. -Teen dad

  34. YOU’RE BACK!

  35. He returns!
    God? It’s me! Thanks for making my birthday wish come true!
    Also, um, if Jesus was your son, I’m sorry my people did that thing that time with that cross. Our bad.
