The Tables Have Turned

PSY: Daddy

Remember a couple years ago when Gangnam Style was THE big thing for like 2 months. That was crazy!

Anyway here's a new song/video from Psy. He's doing that super creepy adult fact on a baby body thing that I can't stand. Maybe it'll work for him, probably not though. I'm sure he's still big in Korea but I can't imagine him having more hits over here in the states. Kinda like Macklemore... Wait, Macklemore is still a thing?

Well, I'll be snookered. I guess there's still hope Psy.

Merry Thanksgiving!

Hey kids, happy Thanksgiving. Remember to put some Booty in the stuffing for me.

Exclusive Links

Fox News Contributor Gets Death Threats After 'Star Wars' Joke. I'm not saying she deserved to get any death threats BUT if Katherine Timpf was to get them they shouldn't be from Star Wars fans, they should be from comedy fans outraged at her AWFUL attempt at humor. Seriously, Star Wars fans are nerds? What are you 12?

Top 5 - Xbox 360 exclusive games of all time. This is a pretty good list. I would definitely have put Shadow Complex on it over Fable III but at least they gave it an honorable mention. Also the Xbox 360 turned 10 years old last weekend. Father time is really coming for us all isn't he?

I added some fake Black Friday deals to this store's weekly in-store flyer. These are all hilarious and over the last couple days they've gone pretty viral. I'm really hoping someone shows up at a Target on Friday demanding their free Falcon.

The Absurd History of Nike Air Technology. Oh man, I remember just how bad I wanted a pair of Nike Air when I was a kid. My parents had enough money to send me to private school but not enough to buy me fancy shoes. Like I was always wearing weird European shoes like Lotto or Diadora that you could find in the bargain bin at Big 5. I'm sure that if I went to school in Turino I would have been super cool.

I think I got my first pair of Nike Air when I was like 17 or 18 and I remember how horrified I was when I realized it was just a fancy insole you could pull out of the shoe (they weren't the visible kind). What a scam.

Captain America: Civil War Trailer

Last night Jimmy Kimmel debuted the new Captain America trailer. It looks cool I guess.

Here's the real deal with Bill McNeil, the comic book mini-series Civil War, that this movie is based on, was terrible. It's absolute hot garbage. It has Iron Man and Captain America picking teams and fighting against each other for no reason. In the whole series I'm not sure a single character makes a decision that one could logically justify from the 30 plus years of comics history that predated the event. What's worse is it pretty much ruined Iron Man for the few years following it. They made him such an unbelievable a-hole..

So here we are, adapting the same story that made zero sense in the comics to the big screen, where you arguably have less time to flesh out all the characters' motivations. Good luck.

Science is Delicious

Let me tell you, if you've been making pancakes or waffles from a box WOOOOO DOGGIE, you have got to cut that out. I started making waffles from scratch and they are so much better than from a box. Also it's way cheaper. Your initial outlay for ingredients is going to be more (eggs, oil, flower, baking powder, vanilla extract, sugar, milk) but the cost per waffle is way way less. It doesn't even take that much time. MAYBE 10 minutes to throw everything into a bowl and mix it all up.

Just trust me, start making your waffles from scratch. You will thank me later.

10 Movies That Stole Their Sets From Other Films

This video from Screen Rant highlighting sets or locations that were used in more than one film or TV show is pretty interesting. I was very excited that I recognized the rooftop garden in NYC that was used in Spider-Man and Daredevil all on my own a couple months ago. Yay, I watch too much TV!

Game of Thrones Season 6 Promo

Season 6 of Game of Thrones doesn't come out until next April but why slow down the hype train? TOOT TOOT!

I'm sure there's already some dutiful blogger out there that has examined every centimeter of this picture for clues and spoilers about Season 6. The conspiracy theorist in me says that John Snow will probably play a large role in the events of Season 6, whether that be posthumously or humously(?).

Either way it should be exciting. While season 5 saw quite a few deviations from the books Season 6 should be about 90% all new story. It's been a couple years since I've read A Feast for Crows or A Dance With Dragons but I'm pretty sure there's very little from those books that we haven't already seen yet, minus the subplots that have been completely ditched. I'm sure whatever we see there will be plenty of nerd-outrage and record ratings.
