Years ago, someone introduced me to Penn & Teller: Bullshit! I believe it was the friend that appears in their episode regarding circumcision. However, I watched a few of the other episodes as well. Months ago I watched the entire series. In their show, magicians Penn & Teller show us the bullshit involved in so many things such as circumcision, alternative medicine, and various other topics. While I didn't necessarily agree with them 100%, I found myself agreeing with them almost all of the time.

I highly recommend this show as it contains some eye openers. I think we as a society owe it to ourselves to take a look at all this bullshit that drives... Read All

A few years ago (maybe 10), a friend introduced me to a show on HBO called Curb Your Enthusiasm. I thought it was funny, so I decided to watch more of it. Since I enjoyed it so much, I bought a couple of seasons on DVD. Recently, I was exploring the Amazon video app on my PS3 and found out I could catch up on the show for free, since I'm an Amazon Prime member. Now that I'm all caught up, I've decided to go back and watch the earlier seasons again and I'm loving it. I wanted to tell you about it, hence why I'm writing this post.

I'm not exactly sure how to describe it to you. You could technically call it a “situational comedy,” but calling it a SitCom is a... Read All

I have a bunch of old consoles that I want to hook up to my HDTV. Does anybody know of a good solution that will keep the picture looking decent? Googling seems to point to the Framemeister. Is this still the best solution?

Not the worlds most amazing achievement to be sure, but one I am happy for. If you are playing Hearthstone and want some incentive to land 300 gold, keep playing because at a thousand wins you will get your wish.

Not sure how many videos I will create, but i'll keep them posted to the forums here. In this video Link learns Manbo's Mambo a song Link learns after completing the Angler's Tunnel. You can use the song you learn on your ocarina to take you to Crazy Tracys so you can buy potions.

After posting the video earlier of The Ballad of the Wind Fish I decided to do a few more videos as I play through the game. Same dutch angle and keeping the videos to story beats in Link's Awakening. This video is of the games introduction and I really enjoy how the pixels go crazy during high white flashes in the intro.

Rich and Jack are playing Helldivers and accidentally invite a couple random players (another funny moment is https://youtu.be/LwdfSPCkP1g?t=1h17m when the first player joins and surprises Rich and Jack) to play along with them.

In the main video, one of the random players has his wife start scolding him apparently for being too loud, and for being 30 and talking to people on a computer game. The funny exchange starts at about the 7 min mark. smiling_imp

We always knew they were coming back

Independence Day was one of my favorite movie experiences in my teenage years, so I'm excited to see what the sequel will bring us. This trailer looks pretty rad, and there's a cool interactive website that shows how the world has progressed since the War of 1996. It's a bit clunky, but cool to click through :)

Recently I heard someone (Jay from RedLetterMedia for those that care) talk about how he listens to a type of music called Synthwave. I looked it up and found out that I really like it. It's been around for a while, and you might recognize if from movies and video games such as Drive and Hotline Miami.

From Wikipedia:
Musically, synthwave is heavily inspired by new wave and the soundtracks of many 1980s films, videogames, cartoons and television shows. Composers such as John Carpenter and Tangerine Dream are frequently cited as influences. The style is mainly instrumental, and often contain 80s cliché elements in the sound such as electronic drums, gated... Read All

Disney/ILM is researching new forms of entertainment with VR and it's pretty interesting to see how they utilize the hardware. The thought of a VR Star Wars film is interesting but I am not entirely certain of how awesome it would be. I imagine someday I might be reading this and thinking my fears quaint but I don't know if it's obvious to anyone how a traditional film would work in VR. Not to say I wouldn't want to experience that at some point. Perhaps they will offer a 2D and VR experience for future films so you can watch it as you'd like?

Bane was in both Batman and Robin and The Dark Knight Rises. Red Letter Media has mashed up 2 Batman-Bane fights, with Batman from Batman and Robin (George Clooney) and Bane from The Dark Knight Rises (Tom Hardy).

They fit really well together! Enjoy!
