Old Ass Links

This Old Ass Commodore 64 Is Still Being Used to Run an Auto Shop in Poland. That's pretty impressive. I mean sure it's Poland so you'd expect them to be using something old but I wouldn't have guessed anything older than a 486. I'll bet someone contacts them and buys it for a boatload of cash. I don't know what a running Commodore 64 goes for on Ebay but I'm guessing it's a good 40 or 50 bucks. In Poland that would probably buy you a second Auto Shop.

The 15 Most Spot-On Superhero Movie Portrayals Of All Time. This list is not ideal. The problem is with the term "spot on", do they mean closest to the comic book? If that's the case you can't put Black Widow or Scarlet Witch on here at all. Black Widow talked with a Russian accent in the comics for like 20 years. Scarlet Witch in the comics is pretty much a gypsy and really looks nothing like Elizabeth Olsen. Also Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool should be much much higher. Probably higher than Chris Evans as Cap.

My top 3 in no particular order are Reynolds as Deadpool, Picard as Professor X and Wesley Snipes as Blade.

Take that to the click bank website I've never heard of before.

The First Half Of Fight Club Was In A Movie You Never Saw. Come on now Cracked, if you think I haven't seen Cloak and Dagger staring Dabney Coleman you are sorely mistaken. Of course I was like 8 and I don't remember it being a prequel to Fight Club at all. This article has definitely been swimming in the Trump end of the pool but it's pretty interesting. If nothing else it highlights just how messed up of a movie Cloak and Dagger really was.

Gal Gadot Tries On Lingere in This Clip From Keeping Up With The Jonses. Is Gal Gadot nine feet tall or is Isla Fisher like four foot nine. Seriously this is like When Rocky fought Thunderlips and he barely came up to his nipples. Is she standing on a box? Maybe that store has a problem with warped flooring?

2016 Rose City Comic Con Video

I think I mentioned before that I've been trying to find a good Rose City Comic Con Cosplay video with little luck. It looks like this video by tyty television is about as good as it's going to get. They didn't get a ton of footage from the show floor but they got some really nice footage of the big Cosplay contest. The contest was a lot of fun, I'm really going to try and catch the contest at ECCC next year to see how it compares.

Speaking of costumes I'm in a real pickle for Halloween this year. For like the last 5 years my default Halloween costume has been low budget Han Solo. It's a costume that has served me well. My problem is that this year my son wants to go as Kylo Ren. What's the problem with that you ask? He's pretty much forbade me from breaking out the Han Solo costume. Why this year! If he's going as Kylo this is the PERFECT time to go as Han Solo. Think of all the fun we could have with him stabbing me!

I don't know of what other cheapo costume I can put together to go with his Kylo Ren costume. He thinks I should be one of the Knights of Ren but that's not exactly something you can buy off the rack.

World War I Seen Through Battlefield

Someone put together a bit of a highlight reel from the Battlefield 1 Beta that I believe just closed. It's basically full of glitches. Hopefully EA and Dice get everything worked out before they launch the game this October. I stayed away from Battlefield 4 partially due to burn out on that style of game and partially because I heard it was pretty buggy at launch. Online shooters like that are pretty rough to jump into after they've been out for a while and if they're buggy right off the bat, what fun is that?

Funny compilation of bugs aside, I'm not sure if I'm ready to revisit the Battlefield franchise just yet. I feel like I still have a lot of Overwatch left in me and when I finally do burn out on that one, I can't imagine I'm going to want to pick up another on-line fps right away. Still, it's a cool looking game. I hope it does well. Or I don't, really why do I even care? It's not like I have stock in EA or something.

Junk Food

Nintendo 64 Rap! Back To The 90's!

I'm so far behind on posts for the month it's silly. I don't know what happened. Usually I fall behind when I go on vacation but I think I took all of one day off this month. Maybe it's because I haven't been feeling good. Yesterday I slept for 10 hours and still woke up exhausted. I think I have Sars. Basically what I'm getting at is HERE COME THE UNVETTED YOUTUBE VIDEOS.

I haven't actually listened to this yet, It's probably corny as hell. When it comes to white people rapping about Nintendo games my standards are INCREDIBLY HIGH. Still it gives me a second to complain about how expensive old games are. I remember when you could go to a video game store and buy used NES cartridges for one or two bucks. You know how much the average SNES cart goes for these days? $19.99. I bought Bayonetta 2 on the WiiU for less than that just a week ago. The secondary market for old games has gotten out of control. Heaven forbid you're looking for something cool like Super Metroid or Conker's Bad Fur day. Be prepared to pay $40 my friend.

At this point its hard for me to feel too guilty for downloading a bunch of ROMS and building a RetroPie. Playing older games is a lot of fun but man that novelty wears off really quickly. I fired up WCW/NWO Revenge the other day and it was great, for like 20 minutes. Haven't played it since. No way I'm spending new game money on an old game I'll play once every 6 months.

Last Week Tonight: Scandals

Everyone in my office has Debate fever so I figured I'd post this as a nice reminder to everyone that Comedy Central totally f-ed up when they let John Oliver go to HBO. Those two months where he filled in for John Stewart while he was filming a movie should have proved to them that he was the heir apparent. I know Stewart was still under contract then but they should have thrown a dump truck after dump truck full of cash at him until he stayed. I'll be if Oliver was on the Daily Show the Nightly Show wouldn't have been canceled. Comedy Central could stand to let one of those two shows stick around while they found their footing but not both.

Anyway, we're getting precariously close to electing Donald Trump our supreme leader. All he has to do tonight is not shit himself and everyone will be claiming its a victory. I'm pretty sure he'll be the first WWE Hall of Famer elected president. That's not a good thing.

Final Luke Cage Trailer

So I guess this is the final Luke Cage trailer. It's been a good run. I look forward to following back up with this series in December when everything is in reruns and I have time to watch something on Netflix. My wife gets Entertainment Weekly (I don't know why either) and they only gave the show a B-. Its the first official review for it I've seen but I take it with a grain of salt. They also didn't give Daredevil S2 a very good review in particular saying the parts with the Punisher weren't very good. Talk about a swing and a miss. The parts with the Punisher were easily the best part of the season. Also Season 2 was probably better than Season 1. Whatever, I'm not going to let BIG REVIEW stand between me and something I want to check out.

Remind me to eat those words when Wonder Woman gets terrible reviews and I get all high and mighty about how terrible DC's movies are.
