    ‘Stephen King’s IT: Why Clowns Scare Us’ Video Essay (Video)

    I don’t think it really requires an academic explanation, given that anybody who’s ever seen a clown understands what makes them extremely creepy (in the right context, that is – I have no wish to denigrate actual benevolent clowns, who have suffered enough this century). Nevertheless, the question does have some interest, and the people […]

    ‘Assassin’s Creed Origins’ Cinematic Trailer (Video)

    It’s my opinion that every video game franchise should do at least one installment set in ancient Egypt. Call of Duty, Resident Evil, Pac-Man, Super Mario, all of these games would be significantly improved with the addition of ancient Egyptian architecture, weaponry, and perhaps a mummy or two. I’ve long been considered a crackpot for […]

    ‘Tha Carter V’ is “Ready to Drop” According to Lil Wayne

    Lil Wayne recently gave an interview on radio station Q93, and naturally, the subject of Tha Carter V came up in conversation. And despite the album’s long-delayed release, owing in part to Weezy’s legal problems with Birdman and the Cash Money Records label, he sounded decidedly optimistic and confident about the record‘s impending release: “The […]

    Watch Christian Hackenberg Get Destroyed & He Didn’t Even See It Coming (VIDEO)

    Let’s all have a moment of silence. The New York Jets have an embarrassing lineup of quarterbacks this season. The first on that list is Christian Hackenberg, but he almost got knocked off the depth chart on Saturday. In the first quarter of today’s game, the Detroit Lions’ Cornelius Washington came unblocked on Hackenberg’s right side and absolutely […]

    It’s the middle of August and preseason football is happening all over the country. On Saturday, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree caught a pass, then disrespectfully crossed up a Los Angeles Rams defender, leaving him with severed ankles en route to a touchdown.   And now Michael Crabtree embarrasses the CB pic.twitter.com/UHtXUmZFDY — Josh Norris […]

    Shu Takada: Check out the World Yo-Yo Champion (Video)

    Hey, it’s late Friday afternoon, which means it’s time for every working person to go as close to autopilot as they can without creating a catastrophe. That includes me, which is why I’m directing your attention to one Shu Takada, who recently took home the gold Duncan in the 2017 World Yo-Yo Championship. Shu Takada […]

    ‘The Punisher’ from Marvel and Netflix Gets First Teaser (Video)

    As a general optimist I have to acknowledge the possibility that Frank Castle‘s peak of popularity might be ahead of him – but as a realist I also have the right to acknowledge that in all likelihood that peak was sometime in the early to mid 90s, whenever his skull logo t-shirts hit the mainstream. […]

    ‘Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite’ Full Story Trailer (Video)

    A few months back we saw the first teaser for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, and I vaguely recall some confusion regarding the actual storyline of the game, which pits characters from the Marvel and Capcom fictional universes/intellectual property holdings against each other and a shared common threat: Ultron Sigma. Now we have a Marvel vs. […]
