The powers that be would have you live your life surrounded by screens, helplessly taking in flashing advertisements against your will. These forces have long worked unopposed, enjoying their domination of your headspace while cackling with glee and counting their stacks of money. Now, by throwing on a pair of special sunglasses, their dread work can be stymied.
That’s right, brothers and...View more »
My favorite video game of all time is Skies of Arcadia, a Japanese RPG released for the ill-fated Sega Dreamcast in 2000. The Dreamcast was an amazing console, with bright and colorful games that left a major impact on me. So, when the time came for me to finally get my first tattoo, I took inspiration straight from the video game that changed my life.
Skies of Arcadia tells the story of Vyse...View more »
The Eagles’ offense had basically done nothing all night. They were booed at halftime in the first game of the NFL season. But in the third quarter, the team faced a third down in Falcons territory, so what did they do? They ran the trick play the Patriots failed to execute in the Super Bowl.
The Eagles’ “Philly Special 2” was essentially the same as the Patriots’ play where Tom Brady dropped...View more »
By many accounts, the Tesla Model 3 is a great car. Sure, it’s needed some work on the body and on fit and finish , but there’s lots of cool engineering behind Tesla’s highest volume offering, including the “Superbottle,” an awesome packaging solution for the cooling system that contains a fun little easter egg.
Last week, I stopped by Munro and Associates, the fascinating company that tears...View more »
Farewell, forever-looping GIFs of ladies touching tongues. Goodbye, meticulously curated sub-niches, like Kawaii BDSM. And, probably, “rest in peace” to Tumblr itself, which just decided to get rid of the only thing the Yahoo-owned microblogging platform had going for it: porn.
As of December 17th, Tumblr will start censoring the site according to new community guidelines, which prohibit...View more »

“They think this world is normal.”
The Man In The High Castle hasn’t been particularly heavy-handed about drawing parallels to our current state of affairs this season, which may be why that line of dialogue hits as hard as it does. The fact that it’s said by Frank Frink, a character I had no interest in seeing again until he actually...View more »
Nathan Sykes, one-fifth of the English boy band one-hit wonders The Wanted (“Glad You Came,” you remember it), dated Ariana Grande for five months in 2013. They even recorded a song together, “Almost Is Never Enough,” on her debut album, Yours Truly.

In what seems a little like the TV equivalent of releasing an album of “new” music shortly after a musician’s death, ABC has begun developing a pilot for an NYPD Blue sequel series just over six months after the death of NYPD Blue co-creator Steven Bochco. This comes from Variety, which says the new show will revolve around the rise Theo Sipowicz, the son of original series lead Andy...View more »

When 25-year-old guard Keriana Alexcee found the body of Jaquin Thomas hanging in a New Orleans jail cell, she didn’t know that Thomas had been dead for more than 90 minutes.

When she passed Jaquin’s cell earlier that evening and saw him writing, she...View more »

Ping a co-worker in the head with a foam dart and you’ll get an annoyed reaction at worst, but soak a co-worker with a water gun and you’ll find yourself in a meeting with HR. Jakks Pacific’s new Skid Shot blaster falls somewhere between the two. It automatically ingests and turns squares of toilet paper into sopping wet spitball projectiles that won’t damage electronics like a Super Soaker...View more »

There are only two things on this earth that I love: catchy breakup songs with brazen call-outs, and Star Wars. So it was with extreme pleasure that I report to you that Mark Hamill tweeted, “Thank you, next,” i.e., the title of Ariana Grande’s infamous Pete Davidson clapback. He did not mean to do it, but in life, there are no accidents.
According to Billboard, Hamill did not realize he had...View more »
