Ben Affleck Reportedly Doesn't Want to Play Batman Anymore. Are we at full on crisis mode over at the WB/DC yet? Around the time when Ben Affleck was first announced as the new Batman he went on record saying he would direct a stand alone Batman movie as long as the script was right. First it was announced that he wouldn't be directing the movie now everyone and their grandma is reporting that he doesn't want to do it at all. That's not good. Combine that with how poorly Dawn of Justice was received by critics and the rumors that Wonder Woman is a mess and everyone at the studio hates it, and you're left with a less than rosy outlook for the DC Cinematic Universe.
Oh yeah, it's also been reported that they're trying to get Mel Gibson to direct Suicide Squad 2. Can't wait for the scene where Joker calls Harley sugar tits.
Kate Upton lands 2017 'Sports Illustrated' swimsuit issue cover. I thought we were all over Kate Upton, so congrats I guess, for getting back in the public eye. I think she's tied a record for most cover appearances. I guess I could google it but that seems like more work than I want to go in on this. Someone on the radio mentioned this was some kind of record so lets just go with that.
Also Angie Everhart is the greatest former SI model no one ever talks about. #fact
Inside the Booming Business of Adults Who Play With Toys on YouTube. Oh man, my daughter is all over these stupid videos. She will hand me the kindle and ask to watch "let it go", which doesn't mean she wants the song from Frozen. It means she wants to watch one of these Youtubers that always plays with Elsa and Anna dolls. Next to Paw Patrol and waking up in the middle of the night, it's like her third favorite thing in the world.
Hero Coder Adapts 'Portal' for the Apple II. I don't know if I'd call him a hero, that doesn't look like a ton of fun to play. I'm surprised more of these kinds of things don't exist. Sure pretty much no one has an Apple II in the house but getting your hands on an emulator is super easy. How come there aren't more SNES and NES games. If I was single and had freetime you know I'd be coding up some mods for SFII, sexy mods. Like Guile without a shirt on.
My name is Kevin and I blog, mostly about nerdy stuff. I'm old enough to know that Gobots came before Transformers and geeky enough to care.
