Save the Links

RIP G4, 2002-2012. G4 has finally gone the way of the Virtua Boy and Atari Jaguar, yesterday they announced that they are going to rename and rebrand the channel. They claim they're going to "take G4 in a direction reminiscent of GQ". I think that's TV speak for Boondock Saints and Entourage marathons as far as the eye can see.

Story time! Way way back in 2002 my parents moved from Seattle to Phoenix leaving behind the boat that they had lived in. Since it was free rent I moved back on board, the only hitch was that it was moored 30 miles away from Seattle in a super cheap dive of a marina. My reaction to feeling so isolated from my friends and hometown was to watch A LOT of TV. I was saving tons of money on rent, so I went with the $250 a month cable deal that at the time included a fledgling little network called G4.

G4 quickly became my favorite channel. There were video game reviews, video game trailers, shows where people played video games, shows were people told you how to play video games. It was awesome. I was super into it to, I was on the forums and would e-mail some of the shows.

Sometime in 2003 I moved back to Seattle and my super limited basic cable plan, so I said goodbye to G4 until I got married to my wife and her super deluxe cable plan in 2006. By then the network had changed so much it was unrecognizable. Sure Attack of the Show was still geared towards nerds but it wasn't G4TV. And Xplay was a shell of what it once was. Oh yeah, and the Cops reruns.. so many Cops reruns.

So rest in peace G4, you were a nerdy thing I once liked. You may be gone but the memories remain.

The CW is working on a Wonder Woman Pilot. Supposedly the series is called "Amazon" and will look at her early years of crime fighting. So really it's just Smallville Vol 2. I cant wait for season 9 when she finally puts on the real Wonder Woman costume!

22 Examples of Cartoon Logic. My favorite, while not shown, is Goofy and Pluto. Why does a Dog need a Dog?

Cristiano Ronaldo is to "sad" to score goals. Oh, F this guy. Long story short, Ronaldo scored two goals last weekend but he didn't celebrate because he's sad. I play soccer every week and you know how long it's been since I've scored a goal? Its been about 3 years. On behalf of defenders everywhere Ronaldo can get bent.
