The trailer for the new 50-cent-in-the-mid-east-fighting-terrorists video game. Needless to say, this is a must watch.
A note on Amazon's Free Supersaver Shipping
I’ve never used it before, because I’m a generally impatient person who demands immediate gratification for my purchases. I’ve even paid a few dollars extra for 2 or 3 day shipping before. So 2 days ago, I saw a one-day-only deal for Condemmed 2, a game I was interested in getting, but wasn’t particularly in a rush to start playing. So I did supersaver. I got a confirmation...
The Santogold album is as good as advertised.
For the last three years, I watched the NFL Draft from a mansion in Palm Springs, lathering up in suntan lotion and getting ready to head out to Coachella. It was the right decision to skip it this year, but I would be lying if I said that I don’t wish I was there right now.

Hack-a-Shaq in the 3rd Quarter?!?
Ugh. Why does San Antonio even have a professional sports team?
Please please please please watch this video. It’s a trailer for a new guido simulator on PS3 called This is Vegas. It’s a video game where you play through what life is like as a huge douchebag. You can beat up losers, drink till you throw up, hit on chicks, work behind a bar, light cigarettes and pull off explosive dance moves (to the beat of a…Snowden remix? Really!) Oh, and...
Sean Avery got an internship at Vouge →
And from the looks of it, this is not a reality show. I’m a fan and all, but does the NHL even count as a professional league anymore? On the bright side, I guess this means LC’s getting a promotion!
He took away our fun.

The Return of Samba de Amigo for Wii →
This is an all time classic…but there NEEDS to be maraca rattle controller of some sort, else this won’t work. I’ve still got the whole Dreamcast set somewhere in my apartment. It was amazing. And just like everything else on the DC, it was 5 years before its time.
The new Mötley Crüe single to be on Rock Band. →
Couldn’t care less about the band or the song, but LOVE that it comes out less than a week after the song is released. Brilliant marketing strategy.

Here is the suprisingly sad story of Jerry Springer, and how someone who many thought was the most talented politician of a generation wound up becoming…Jerry Springer. (via This American Life)

Simple Man on Rock Band! →
This is a fun song to sing. Looking forward!
STP’s bad luck was being a polished, immediately accessible, larger-than-life...– Sure, but wasn’t their problem more that they were a polished, largely-than-life cock rock band who worked extremely hard to fit into the grunge/alt-rock zeitgeist from the get-go, and people saw through the ruse very early on? This isn’t a slam on Stone Temple Pilots — they have a lot of great...
I think I’m ready for a new Thermals album.
3 Common Myths about Terminal 5
The Sightlines are Bad: Completely False! At the Explosions in the Sky show last night, I stood in 5 or 6 different spots and could see the stage perfectly from everywhere. Furthermore, I was able to move around comfortably from spot to spot without feeling like I was being too pushy. Not so easy to do in a 3000+ capacity space. The Sound is Bad: False! At least for the shows I’ve been to,...
moag: Originally wanted this to be a mixed blog about gambling in poker and gambling in the financial markets. So I’ll kick off some poker content now. The format will be like this: I’ll give the background/details of the game, and then I’ll go into some interesting detail on some hands. If you’re a poker newbie and you dont understand the terminology, I apologize in advance. GAME DETAILS -...

Olympic torch hit by protests during Paris leg →
Listen, I am all for people protesting these Olympics and bringing to light China’s horrendous human rights record, issues with Taiwan, etc. But attacking the people carrying the torch…people who are usually particularly honorable for plenty of good reasons that have nothing to do with China or the Olympics themselves…is just a miserable approach. It’s depressing, really....

kellyreeves:not happy. Headline should read: NBC promotes illegal bit-torrent file sharing by limiting access to cult TV show. As soon as these air on Direct TV, they will be recorded, ripped and uploaded to the web to download. For free. Without commercials. I’ll be happy to host weekly bootleg viewing parties for anyone interested, since I can rig up my PS3 to stream downloaded videos onto...

Thoughts on: The Club (PS3)
Loved the concept, but there was not enough depth. This is a shooting game developed by a company known for making racing games, and that’s exactly how the final product feels. You run through these levels, as part of a tournament, trying to get the most points before either the time runs up, or you get through the exit. The whole thing is a game within the game, which either makes the...
Thoughts on...Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword (DS)
This was a very well received DS game I was excited to try.Couldn’t stand it tho. I like the DS, don’t mind the stylus and think the concept for this game was well intentioned. I just don’t have the patience to hold that little thing and constantly swipe at the screen over and over and over again. I need stylus based games to be a bit slower paced and more deliberate. Returned...
Thoughts on...Inland Empire (Movie)
I’m trying to be more active with my Netflix, and now that I’ve got Gamefly too, I’ll have some opportunities to write short reviews of the various media I consume. This movie was so bad. I turned it off in 10 minutes and mailed it back. I loved Mulholland Drive too. One of my all time favorites. This was dreadful, tho. Too obvious that the actors didn’t understand what was...

perpetua: So we all know that people love to make Muxtapes. Totally understandable. Here’s the question: Does anyone actually listen to Muxtapes? I have a from time to time, but not as often as I’d probably like to. as I’ve said before, it needs some sort of social networking aspect to it. I wanna go to my muxtape page, see a list of which of my friends have updated theirs and...
