Today, Nintendo continued to build out the NES library in its Switch Online app with the previously-announced addition of NES Open Tournament Golf, Solomon’s Key, and Super Dodge Ball. But it also had a surprise: “Living the life of luxury!,” a hacked save file for The Legend of Zelda that starts players out with a full inventory and lots of cash..
The original Zelda famously starts you off...View more »
College students are openly, carelessly, and publicly racist so often I’m almost tempted to call it a rite of passage for the black students whose days, weeks, or semesters they’re inevitably ruining.
But we don’t tend to think about them when stories like this one crop up: A University of Oklahoma student was caught on Snapchat with black paint all over her face and hands and saying to the...View more »
So here’s the dilemma. I have a 2004 Land Cruiser that I DD. It has about 196k miles and is a 10 footer appearance wise. People are generally surprised when I tell them how old it is. Few mods, TJM skids, Fox 2.0 shocks, 40mm spacer/T-bar crank.
Basically, I see a number of expenses coming in the near future including timing belt/waterpump, new tires, likely bushings, etc. These could easily...View more »
Peepers Log: Tuesday October 16th, 1984. I started taking karate when I was 2 years old. It was that year that I heard about a 4 year old in Japan named Mr. Bo who was already a black belt. I became a black belt at 10, that’s when Chuck Norris started bothering me for lessons. Besides my parents, only 2 people have been such a huge influence on my life, Rickey Henderson and Mr. Bo. I’ve met...View more »
With reports circulating that the Cardinals won’t bring him back next season, Steve Wilks and the rest of his coaching staff have decided to go bold with their play-calling as they try and play spoiler against the visiting Los Angeles Rams. For one of their final decisions in charge, they decided to give 35-year-old Larry Fitgerald a chance to throw the first touchdown pass of his career in...View more »
Peepers Log: Tuesday November 6th, 1984. Today is Election Day. I’m pretty sure Reagan will win again. During the presidential race, Mondale came right out and said “I will raise taxes.” That pretty much ended it for him. Bob walked on the bus this morning wearing a Mondale/Ferraro sweatshirt. Everyone laughed at him. Although my recent venture with Henry, Fantasy Football, has been a great...View more »
It feels entirely too early for awards season to have begun again, but at least we’re opening with a fun one: if you’ll recall, the Hollywood Foreign Press Assocation, being non-American, doesn’t have weird rules about getting loaded during a 100-hour ceremony, so all your faves on TV and film can grease the pomp with wine or whatever. What that means for you at home: Somebody’s bound to say...View more »

Steven is often a bit of a distraction from the business of Steven Universe. By that I mean that because he’s so unabashedly a kid, he’s usually not privy to what would theoretically be the more...View more »
Rap duo Run The Jewels and Late Show host Stephen Colbert have beef. No, not about Killer Mike’s deeply disappointing recent endorsement of the infamously racist gun lobby trade organization masquerading as a civil rights group, the National Rifle Association. Instead, as watchers of The Late Show know, Killer Mike and El-P intermittently pop up to despoil Colbert’s holiday-themed musical...View more »
A wheelchair cannot fit through this space. A person using crutches could not safely pass by. An elderly person should not have to walk across loose stones on a slope (slope not seen well in the photo) to get by a parked pickup truck. This is not even a particularly large truckbed. You may not use the sidewalk, but others do.
I very nearly “accidentally” banged myself/my watch on this truck as...View more »
The weekend is for being pretty pumped about how it’s suddenly become fall in New York, and also regretting that I neglected to get my coat cleaned before it turned coat weather. The weekend is also for video games.
I’ve been poking around The Light Keeps Us Safe this week, the new game from the studio behind The Signal From Tolva and the very excellent Sir, You Are Being Hunted. I love...View more »
I love it when K-Pop music videos turn into episodes of K-drama lite (barring, say, 20-minute-long monstrosities ), and the video for The Space Between is one of the best I’ve watched.
It’s a classic K-drama plot...View more »
If you owe the IRS money and you don’t file or pay your taxes on time, chances are, you’re on the hook for fees. The IRS charges interest and penalty fees for late filing and payments, and this calculator tells you how much you can expect to pay.
Maybe you’re busy; maybe you’re just lazy. If you still haven’t filed your taxes,...View more »
His world is fire, and blood, and tiny little cars.
If you’re wondering why a “fan” video like this looks so slick, it’s because it was bankrolled by WB, the publishers of the upcoming Mad Max game. Which doesn’t look anywhere near as much fun as making this video did.
