The Greatest Professional Video Gamer Entrance?

Professional video game player Kenneth Bradley really upped the ante on Marvel vs Capcom tournament entrances. I guess. I mean I have no idea what the other entrances are like but I think it's safe to assume they don't include chugging steve-wisers and stone cold stunnering randos from the crowd.

I Am Chris Farley: The Trailer

Oh man, if this doesn't look like it's going to be the funniest and saddest thing ever. I've heard his biography is a really good read but incredibly depressing too. I really like Chris Farley and kind of obsessed over SNL in the early 90s, so I'm going to do my best to go see this. I'll probably bring a box of kleenex with me.

This Time Nothing Will Go Wrong

Mad Max Fan re-creates Max's Interceptor

Some crazy awesome guy with way to much disposable income spent about $120,000 re-creating Mad Max's 1972 Ford Falcon. It looks really, really cool. Pretty much anything on the street with a huge blower gets my attention, but the amount of detail he's recreated is impressive.

I love that it gets 6 miles to a gallon. What a terrible car to drive around in the apocalypse.

Listener: I don't Want to Live Forever

Hey kiddos, it's Friday and it's hot as balls out. Last night when I went to bed it was 80 degrees inside the house. When I woke up this morning it was 75. That's gonna make for a great weekend. Anyway, enjoy this live performance of Listener's I Don't Want to Live Forever. It's a rad song with an awesome/manic performance by Dan Smith.

Stop Motion Karate Fight

The fine folks at Corridor Digital have put together this fun little video of two guys Karate fighting using stop motion animation. It's pretty cool. It's also a good reminder that we were going to sign Logan up for Karate classes this summer. It's either Karate classes or I'm going to have him wax my car and paint our fence all summer. I guess I haven't really decided.

I've never rode a moose

Here's some Canadian Loon riding a swimming moose. How drunk do you have to be to try that? Near blackout drunk or just super buzzed. I'm glad they didn't hit the moose with the boat. Out of all the dangerous stuff going on here that looked the most dangerous.

True story, a guy a work once asked me what the largest animal I had ever rode was. He was blown away when I told him Elephant. It's been forever but still, I've ridden an elephant. Unless you're catching a ride on the back of a whale you don't get much bigger than that.

That's Sexist

Highest Grossing Links

How Many Of The Highest-Grossing Movies Since 1990 Aren’t Sequels Or Remakes? In 1991 the only original movie in the top 10 was City Slickers.... That's AMAZING. Every other movie in the top 10 that year was a remake, a sequel, based off a book or an old TV show. I thought the dearth of new ideas in Hollywood was a relatively new dilemma, as it turns out Hollywood has been out of original ideas for like 70 some years.

Can We Make You Desire A Mustang II? They didn't have to try very hard. I've always thought the King Cobra was pretty rad that 1978 with the t-tops isn't too bad either. Sure a new Civic would outperform it in every way but look at how awesome the Mustang looks... I bet it smells like Brut and shag carpet.

Thirty Year Old Commodore Amiga Still Controls Heat and AC at 19 Schools. I love this story, no idea why I took so long to post it. I'd like to think that somewhere out there there's an Apple IIgs that's running an entire towns traffic lights. It's probably Tukwilla. Man I get stuck at this one red light all the time. When it finally turns green it only lets one MAYBE two cars through even when there's a huge line of cars. Stupid Apple II.

The quest to save today’s gaming history from being lost forever. Here's an interesting problem that I've never thought of before. How do you preserve a game that's download only? Or is exclusive to the Playstation Network? What about online games like World of Warcraft? How on earth do you archive a game that is constantly updating and improving?

Clerks: The TV Show is... yikes

So WAY WAY back in 1995 Touchstone decided that Kevin Smith's Clerks needed to be adapted to the small screen. It's was a terrible idea for many reasons. Count them as you try and slog your way through the pilot episode that has most kindly been uploaded to youtube.

On the plus side if you ever wondered what Clerks would be like without the swearing, clever jokes and likable characters here you go.

Also, this TV show is so 1990s that I think It comes with a Gin Blossoms CD.

E3 Links

From ‘Shenmue III’ To ‘Uncharted 4′: Everything You Need To Know About Sony’s E3 Presentation. In my mind the "winner" of E3 was Sony, I don't think they dominated or anything but most of the news I read or video I saw from E3 had a big old PS4 logo in the corner. Even games like Star Wars: Battlefront and Fallout 4 that are going to be cross platform shared trailers and gameplay footage from the PS4 first. Plus they showed a game (Horizon Dawn) where cave men fight Robot Dinosaurs. Out of all the system exclusive games theirs piqued my interest most.

Also they're making Shenmue III. You go Sony.

Microsoft’s 10 most important E3 2015 announcements. Big Redmond didn't do too bad though with the Xbox. Sure they had a lot of expected reveals that put me into yawn mode like new Halo and Gears of War but they also had probably the single coolest thing at E3, the HoloLens. Go ahead and check out that HoloLens Minecraft demo, it's crazy awesome.

Of course all the HoloLens stuff was practically buried by the news that the Xbox One would add support to 100 old Xbox 360 games, which is a weird thing to get excited about but whatever, gamers are weird.

The first PC Gaming Show gets buried in a slow roll of announcements. PC gaming doesn't get as much attention as Nintendo, Sony or Microsoft demand but there was still a lot of good news for the PC Masterace coming out of E3. Killer Instinct and Gears of War are going to get ported from the Xbone, AMD showed off some fancy new hardware and most importantly we had confirmation that some of the cool new games everyone was drooling over were going to be available for the PC (like No Man's Land).

Nintendo CEO Apologizes After Lackluster E3 Showcase Leads to a Collective Fanboy Meltdown. Nintendo barely bothered to show up. No one showed in person, they just played a weird video where everyone turned into puppets and they talked about new Mario, Metroid and Star Fox games. Yawn.

Star Wars Battlefront... how you doin?

A couple weeks ago I posted some cartoon that was kind of taking jabs at the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront reboot.... well that cartoon can stick its sorrys in a sack because everything out of E3 has made Battlefront look amazeballs. Like, I'm pretty sure I'm willing to shell out a few hundred dollars on a new graphics card just to play this game amazeballs.

I showed this to my son and about 30 seconds in he said "dad, I want this game", he was super serious too. Like this isn't a game, this is serious business dad.

Transformers: Devastation OMG

The words "greatest game ever made" get thrown around a lot these days but I have to believe that this new Transformers game based on the 1980s cartoon might just be the greatest game ever made. If not the greatest at least it's at least top 3. Right up there with Pac-Man and Zork..

All hyperbole aside this new Transformers game looks pretty cool. The details from E3 are still a bit sketchy but it looks like it will be available on all the usual consoles including the WiiU, Xbox 360 and PC. You get to play as one of 5 classic Autobots and you will face around 30 Deceptacons. It doesn't seem like it will be very story heavy, probably just a big old brawler. When the game looks as good as this one does it doesn't have to reinvent the wheel, fun is the key word here.

It's an interesting decision by Activision for sure. While the Transformers are still a big intellectual property most kids know them from the awful Michael Bay movies or the newer cartoons like Prime and Rescue Bots (which are actually pretty decent). The decision to pander to all the 80s babies who grew up on the likes of Jazz, Hound and Mirage is kind of risky. Hopefully it will be a big hit. If for no other reason than I'd like to see more video games based off cartoons/toys from the 80s. M.A.S.K, Thundercats, He-Man... or dare I dream, GI Joe?

Everywhere You Look

A couple days ago some intrepid nerds recreated the Full House intro with Grand Theft Auto V. This side by side comparison really showcases just how much work they put into it. They really nailed Candace Cameron. Hey-O!

Dinosaurs Are Jerks

This is the reason I have children and not a Dinosaur. I can put up with the poop and lack of sleep but I swear if someone touches my Raisin Nut Bran they're dead.

New Mass Effect is also a thing from E3

Man, E3 is really lobbying hard for me to get a new video card isn't it. First Fallout 3 now a new Mass Effect? I think I'm reaching the tipping point when it comes to my current rig. I picked up Lego Batman 3 during the Steam sale this weekend and while the gameplay looks pretty good transitioning during the cutscenes there's a bit of choppiness. Also on my media storage drive I'm getting all sorts of random hard disk errors. That's never a good sign. Windows 10 is right around the corner, I'm pretty sure I'm going to sell some comics and try to upgrade the old warhorse.

What was my point again? Oh yeah new Mass Effect looks super pretty.

The Slowest Beer Mile Ever

Katie Nolan of the show Garbage Time on Fox Sports 1 (which I'm told is a thing, but I wouldn't know since it's buried on the super premium tier of Dish Network) decided to tape herself running the Beer Mile. It looks awful, yet at the same time I can't help but wonder if I couldn't beat her time of 35:25. If you drank a beer after the first lap I think I'd be ok. I don't know why but three beers seems doable but four beers just seems like lunacy.

Fallout 4: Citizens on Patrol

One of the bigger announcements coming out of E3 this last weekend was the release of Fallout 4 (Nov 10, 15). It looks pretty cool, way cooler than say the new Doom looks. I THINK I bought Fallout and Fallout 2 on a Steam summer sale last year, or maybe the year before. Either way I haven't played any of the Fallout games yet. Maybe I should finally sit down and check them out. I've been playing kids games WAY to long. You have no idea how addicted I am to Angry Birds: Epic.

It's Corgi Friday!

Would you look at these cute sons of bitches. What is it about corgis that makes them so cute? Is it the stumpy little legs, the point ears, the fluffy fur? Whatever it is I think they might just be the cutest breed of dogs ever. This slow motion video of them makes them look like a derpy bunch of bunny dogs and I love it.

He's the Carrot Top of Weathermen

This Guy! Am I right???

Mark Johnson, local weatherman of WEWS Cleveland had some things to say about last nights Cavaliers/Warriors game and as the saying goes one prop is worth at least 2.5 words. I love how once the weed wacker thing totally flops he doubles down with the "brick". Seriously, that's not a brick it's a cider block. Do you even know how to Carrot Top?

Practice? Links

Allen Iverson Has Destroyed The Legacy Of Allen Iverson. Sooooo Allen Iverson is kind of a loser. That's sad I guess. I mean I never met him or anything so it's not like I really care if he was a good guy or not. I will say he's one of the most freakish athletes I've ever seen in person. He must have weighed 100 pounds and there he was driving the lane, scoring and rebounding over huge guys. He was a lot of fun to watch.

Copy of original Star Wars script discovered in UNB library. Guess what? Han Shot first. That is all.

The 10 Most Unwatchable Films Featured on MST3K. This list is a good reminder that I haven't watched enough MST3K. When it was at it's most popular I didn't have cable and by the time I finally did it was already winding down on comedy central. Are these on Netflix yet? I feel like they should be on Netflix.

WWE Money in the Bank: A Step-ladder? We delve in to find the truth about the real ladder. In honor of the Money in the Bank PPV this weekend (only $9.99 on the WWE Network) one blogger has finally answered the question all pro wrestling fans have had at one time or another. Where do they get those ladders?

Robots Falling Down

In case you missed it, last week was the DARPA Robotics Challenge. I don't know what that is but it sounds cool. From the video it looks like it's a series of challenges for a bunch of really expensive robots and by challenges I mean mundane tasks like turning a door knob or walking...

John Oliver is a Man of His Word

Last week John Oliver challenged FIFA's main sponsors to oust Sepp Blatter as the president of FIFA, if they did he would do crazy unspeakable acts like "wear shoes" and "drink beverage". While there's no proof that Sepp Blatter stepping down had anything to do with those main sponsors, John Oliver still promised to do stuff so doing stuff is exactly what he did.

Sharknado 3: The Third One

Ladies and Gentlemen mark you calendars for July 22nd because that's why SyFy debuts Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No. Or don't I guess, SyFy is sure to replay the hell out of it. Plus you could always catch it on Prime or Netflix. I guess instead of marking your calendars you should just "be aware" that Sharknado 3 is a thing that will be available to watch soon. They should put that on the poster.

Austin 3:16 says you don't graduate

You've probably seen that viral video of the two High Schoolers that decided a fun way to celebrate graduating would be for one of them to give the other a stone cold stunner... during the graduation ceremony. Well, and this will really shock you, as it turns out the school didn't think it was very funny. They're threatening to take the kids diplomas away. I assume if they do one of them is going to drive a milk truck right up to the principals office and hose him down with 1,000 gallons of 2%.

Skylanders Superchargers or There Went My Money

Check it out kiddos the reveal trailer for the next installment in the Sklanders series, Skylanders: Superchargers, just went live. This time Malibu Stacy has a new hat AND a new car.

You guys have no idea how crazy my kid is for Skylanders. They've definitely surpassed Lego as his favorite toy. Even when he's not playing the video game he's playing with the toys or he's watching Skylanders videos on youtube or he's just sitting in his room looking at one of his three posters trying to figure out which guy he wants to collect next (fyi it's ShroomBoom). The amount of useless Skylanders knowledge he has is really impressive. Before we even buy a character he can tell me all about their special powers and what element they represent. We're trying not to spoil him, we can't really afford to spoil him. However with a new game coming out soon it's been really easy to pick up the older figures and games for cheap. The problem is that the gravy train is about to lose one of its biscuit wheels.

This new game is going to mean new game prices. I don't mind picking up a couple figures every now and then when they're on sale but there's no way I can afford to spend $79.99 on a whole new game PLUS 15 bucks a piece on new characters. I guess I'll be out there fighting the crowds again on Black Friday.

Some People Stand In The Links

David Hasselhoff Once Gave Pam Anderson a Swimsuit Photo of Himself for Christmas. This is the most Hoff thing ever. I hope he still does it. Like I hope that's all he gets anyone for Christmas or Birthdays or Chanukah. A CD from 1997 and that picture of him in naked in front of the fireplace with the wrinkly dogs (not pictured for various google image search reasons).

Those Louis C.K. Sexual Abuse Rumors Might Actually Be True. Man, this sounds awful and I'm sure I'm being very reckless in linking to something like this that names names with out any real evidence. HOWEVER, removed from the wild speculation there's a very real story there. Some big name in comedy is totes sexually harassing/assaulting women and getting away with it because everyone is afraid for their career. It's amazing that post Cosby there's still this gross protective old boys club bullshit.

CleanBayArea on NBC to give $100,000 back to the owner of Apple 1 computer. Someone dropped off an Apple 1 at a Bay Area PC recycler. Now I understand that 4k of Ram might not be top of the line anymore but that's no reason to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Especially when the baby sells for six figures.

Women’s National Teams Are Now IN THE GAME In EA Sports’ ‘FIFA 16′. Cool news. I would imagine there are going to be a ladies introduced to the FIFA franchise because of this. Finally both Boys and Girls can know the frustration of the computer TOTALLY CHEATING! WHY IS THEIR KEEP SO GOOD AND MINE SUCKS SO BAD? WHY WON'T ANYONE MAKE A RUN?

They're Gathering Again

It's time for the most anticipated infomercial of the year. The annual Gathering of the Juggalos video. This year's video comes to us from the FUTURE. A future where I assume cool things like the ICP and Faygo have been outlawed so it's up to one intrepid group of ninjas to travel back in time to the 2015 Gathering of the Juggalos and I don't know... save the future Faygo? This thing is 20 minutes long I didn't have time to watch it all this morning.

I think I say this every year, but man I really want to go to this thing. Think of how awesome the people (?) watching must be. Sure there's a 50/50 chance I never make it back but Anybody Killa and Nova Rockafeller are going to be there. I'm pretty sure it's worth taking the chance.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: FIFA II

It's not often that John Oliver goes back to the well, but considering the recent corruption charges against FIFA it seemed appropriate that he re-address the issue on Last Week Tonight. As usual it's pretty brilliant, I especially liked his Ke$ha analogy.

Also nice to see someone bringing up the Women's World Cup and the moronic idea of playing it on turf. The short shorts idea's not so bad though...
