LEGO's BATMAN (Voice) To Host Syfy's 3-Day Live Comic-Con Coverage. Holy balls, that is one tortured title. What they mean to say is Will Arnett is going to host a show from San Diego Comic-Con for the SyFy network. I could care less about Arnett's participation, I'm just glad that someone network is doing a show from SDCC this year. Yeah, in the time it took me to write that last sentence I realized that it will probably cover Movies and TV exclusively but hey, something is better than nothing. I really miss G4's coverage of SDCC. The last two years they were still in business they did a great job. I remember one year I watched it sick from the couch and it was so fantastic. RIP G4.

Oh yeah, I saw the Angry Birds movie the other day with my son and they had the trailer for The Lego Batman Movie and it was pretty awesome. I'm really looking forward to it. Also Angry Birds was WAY better than it had any right to be. It's wasn't on Pixar's level or anything but what should have been complete crap was actually sort of enjoyable.

Say goodbye to the way the game console market works. Here's a nice think piece on just what the Xbox Scorpio and PS4.5 mean to the console market. What's happening right now is a thousand times more interesting than a couple years ago when the Xbox One and PS4 were announced. We're not just looking at new consoles with new bells and whistles we're looking a change in the way they're made, marketed and sold. Yes, you've always been able to pay a bit more for a console and get a "nicer" experience. A bigger HD, extra controller, maybe a game or two thrown it, but you've never been able to buy two consoles with vastly different specs that play the same games.

I'm going to take a shot a couple long form articles on this next week. There's so much to digest, even as someone that's kind of given up on consoles this E3 was really, really interesting.

The Buick Cascada Is A Lesson In How Much New Cars Suck For Small People. I noticed this trend the other day when I saw my mother-in law driving her Ford Escape. She looked like a child in it. I can't believe she can even see over the dash. I wanted to get a stack of books for her to sit on. Car makers need to take note, the second you can't comfortably rest your arm in the open window you've ruined the car.

There’s a shirt that lets you secretly masturbate anywhere. This is a terrible, terrible idea.

Inspired by Johnny Depp's similar shirt in Once Upon A Time In Mexico? Of course, he was using the other hand to shoot people under the table.
