Beyond Gravity Falls

Over the last few years, Gravity Falls has developed a cult-like following due to the shows intelligent writing, lovable characters and mysterious premise. Although the show only ran for two seasons, as time passed, new episodes were released further apart. Fans of the show were very vocal and their request was simple, they we wanted more.

But we didn’t get more (at least not in an animated way). Although we don’t know the exact details as to why, Disney held back on releasing a DVD or Blu-ray set of the series. Hirsch has since release a handful of publications including a graphic novel that continues the story of our beloved, Pines Twins. Hirsch has also teamed up with a company called ‘SHOUT! Factory’ to release DVD/Blu-ray sets of the series.

This week, news broke that Hirsch has signed a multi-year deal with Netflix. In his new role he will be developing new series and films to help cater to an adult demographic. Cindy Holland (Netflix Originals VP) was quoted as saying:

“Alex is an imaginative storyteller with new ideas who’s quickly developed a reputation as a fresh new voice in animation. We couldn’t be more excited to work with him as we continue expanding our adult animated slate.”

Alex Hirsch is a very creative person and this can be a great move for him. We’re looking forward to seeing what he’ll be bringing to the Netflix table.

The Rock says, “Cheat Meals”

Dwayne Johnson has come a long way from being ‘The Rock’ on wrestling sports entertainment programming. One thing that’s for sure, though, this man is a beast! Some time ago, Johnson posted what his “legendary” cheat meal would be after eating clean for 150 days. The meal consisted of 12 pancakes, 4 double dough pizzas, and 21 brownies. Keep in mind that this was a reward for how well he had done PLUS he is also aiming to build mass.

Believe it or not, there are attempts by professional(?) eaters on YouTube that try to eat this entire meal. Check out this video by YouTuber, Matt Stonie, attempting the challenge.
