Track of the Day: Ease into Monday Madness with Danny Lango's Lo-Fi Folk

Sep
22

I hate loud Monday mornings more than any other part of the week's most damnable day: nothing louder than running water, nothing faster than fish swimming through gelatin is how I like'em, and if I can't get'em that way, then headphones and Danny Lango's "Side by Side" is the next best thing.

Happy 125th Birthday Nintendo!

Sep
22

Nintendo has turned 125 years old today, and might I say, it's looking mighty fine for its age. Of course, Nintendo didn't get its start in video games until the 1970s, but that doesn't change the fact that it's really damn strange to think that when the company was founded, the president of the US was Benjamin freaking Harrison. Wow.

Japan Waits Hours to Pre-Order Pokemon, Proving Pokemon Still Rules

Sep
22

I’m beginning to hate Yokai Watch. Even though there is nothing wrong with Yokai Watch. It’s cute. It’s silly. The character looks like an anime-style Justin Beiber, but that’s okay. No, the reason I hate Yokai Watch is because my pride says Pokémon is so much better, something that Japan faithfully proved this past weekend as they waited to pre-order the new title.

Destiny: 5 Best Methods to Farm Legendary Engrams

Channel Surfer: Dollhouse, A House Full of Pretty Girls

Sep
19

Oh, Joss Whedon, will you ever win? Wait…I guess directing the a billion dollar movie about characters you loved as a kid could be considered winning. From that point of view, I really don’t feel bad that Dollhouse was yet another failed Whedon TV project.

I'd Call the New [AS] Show 'Mr. Pickles' Disgusting, But... Then It'd Win...

Sep
19

Adult Swim is premiering two new shows this week: one is Tim and Eric's Bedtime Stories, and the other is Mr. Pickles. Astoundingly, Tim and Eric have been outdone in terms of evoking disgust and revulsion, and that isn't necessarily a good thing for the new cartoon about a dog that is actually Satan, unbeknownst to his beloved boy companion Tommy.

Imgur User Makes Astoundingly Detailed Analysis of 'Interstellar's Hard Sci-Fi

Sep
19

Welp, if all copies of Interstellar were inexplicably lost, this Imgur user's analysis could reconstruct the film--or at least Endurance, the spacecraft from upcoming sci-fi blockbuster. The album is an eye-buggingly detailed explication of the hard-science principles used in the spacecraft's engineering. Simply put, I can't believe this was cobbled together from JUST TRAILERS, it's like an owner's manual, or a featurette out of an astroengineering textbook . . .

Paranormal Activity 5's New Title Is All Kinds of Nutty

Paranormal Activity lost me as a fan three Paranormal Activities ago, but the latest one's recently revealed title has me interested again.

Hyrule Warriors Is the Mash-Up of Dynasty Warriors and Zelda We Never Knew We Wanted [Game Review]

Sep
19

Let’s get one thing out of the way up front. Hyrule Warriors is not The Legend of Zelda. It has none of the exploration, indefinable magic, or innovation of the series from which this title is spun from. That’s not to say we can't love it though. See, while Hyrule Warriors might be a touch repetitive at times, it draws enough lore from a beloved franchise, and the hordes of enemies you'll be slicing through should keep fans of that particular subgenre more than occupied.

Debbie's Inferno; An Odyssey of Insecurities, And A Kitty Spirit-Guide [Comic Review]

Sep
18

Anne Emond's cartooning is preoccupied with calling people out on their vanities, sillinesses, and emotional hiccups--all fitting practice for her first extended comic, Debbie's Inferno, which takes us on a journey through the troubled soul of one small and saggy girl named Debbie. It's adorably illustrated, maturely written, and sometimes hits too close to home for comfort.

Track of the Day: One Simply Cannot (Not) Dance to Made In Heights' "Ghosts"

Sep
18

It's testament to Made in Heights' songcraft that their albums sound like 'best-of' compilations--do these people write anything aside from catchy singles? "Ghosts" keeps that torch burning bright with 80s hip hop-inspired beats, a minimal atmosphere, and female vocals soft as wedding gowns.
