Turkey Sized Links

Kirk Cameron Tried To Flood RottenTomatoes With His Followers, Was Quickly Swamped By Trolls I feel like if Kirk Cameron didn't exist the internet would have to create him. The basic story here is that his new movie Saving Christmas is awful. At least that's what the lamestream media would like you to believe. Kirk rallied the troops on facebook t flood RottenTomatoes with positive reviews and he kinda got the opposite. Unless he thinks "difficult to masturbate to" is a positive review. I mean it kinda is, I doubt that's what they were going for.

Not Even Steven Spielberg Is Allowed To Remake ‘The Last Starfighter’. Remember just the other day when I was pontificating over a remake to The Last Starfighter? It turns out there's a very good reason Hollywood hasn't tried to remake it. They can't. This is one of those rare instances where the screenwriter has the controlling rights to a remake and he will not allow it. Good for him.

Mark Cuban made billions from an open internet. Now he wants to kill it. This is pretty much the most american thing ever. Billionaire is against the very thing that helped him earn his billions simply because now that he's a billionaire it's not in his best interest. And to think, Mark Cuban was my third favorite shark.

Craigslist was down: a short interview with the hacker blamed for it. This is a fun story, YTCracker is like a real life Zero Cool from Hackers if Johnny Lee Miller had went on to becoming a DJ and rapper as opposed to a Benedict Cumberbatch impersonator.

4 Reasons 'The Walking Dead' Hates Humans More Than Zombies. David Wong pokes some holes in the basic conceit behind most Zombie stories not just The Walking Dead. The idea that the second a zombie apocalypse hits society will be cast into two different groups, bad ass zombie killers and hapless zombie food.

One of the reasons I really enjoyed World War Z (the book not the horrible movie) was because it took this idea and turned it on it's ear. People with tangible skills like doctors, plumbers, carpenters and electricians became incredibly valuable while lawyers and bankers were left shoveling zombie corpses. Man... now I'm thinking about World War Z. I might have to reread that again.

DC Comics Claims Valencia's New Crest Looks Too Much Like Batman Logo. On the surface this copyright claim by Warner Bros seems ridiculous as Valencia has been playing soccer for over 100 years and have always used a bat in their crest. HOWEVER, this is specifically over their new logo, which looks a whole lot like the Batman Beyond bat symbol (not pictured here) which I assume has also been trademarked or copyrighted or whatever the legalese is.

Don't get me wrong, I think Warner Bros will still lose but I think the case is far less of a laugh that most bloggers are making it out to be.
