    OlegCricket Posts Insane High-Altitude Parkour Run (Video)

    Parkour has become a punchline thanks to its goofy name and brief run as a fad for teenagers, but apparently there’s actually some legit stuff going on in the parkour landscape. I say that after having seen the latest video from OlegCricket, showing what he describes as an “insane parkour run” over the ledge of a […]

    Nintendo Theme Park Attractions Coming From Universal Studios

    I remember playing Super Mario Sunshine as a kid and getting to the “Pinna Park” amusement park land and thinking “someone should make this but in real life.” I don’t know if that could ever happen, but I at least have a reason not to dismiss the idea entirely, thanks to the upcoming Nintendo theme park attractions […]

    Spotify Launching Video Content This Year

    Jay Z’s premium streaming service Tidal might be seen as a big flop, but it does appear to have influenced one of the heavy hitters in the streaming game, since reports have surfaced that Spotify is planning to roll out video content sometime this year. Details on Spotify’s video offerings are still to come, presumably […]

    ‘Sense8′: Netflix Original Series From the Wachowskis Gets Trailer (Video)

    Andy and Lana Wachowski are coming out with a new series with a cryptic name that has a lot of superpowered people jumping around shooting bullets at each other. While that description will probably give everyone flashbacks to The Matrix franchise, this is something different – Sense8, a new scifi action series coming to Netflix this month. Sense8 deals with […]

    ‘Vacation': Comedy Sequel Gets Red-Band Trailer (Video)

    As a longtime fan of National Lampoon’s Vacation, I was extremely skeptical when I heard they were doing a reboot/sequel starring Ed Helms as a grownup Rusty Griswold. But now that I’ve seen the new red-band trailer for the brand new Vacation, I would describe my attitude as “cautiously optimistic.” The new Vacation seems to have upped the ante […]

    The Oculus Rift Is Scheduled for an Early 2016 Release

    The Oculus Rift has been a known entity for years now, but an actual consumer-release edition of the virtual reality helmet has often seemed like some far-future event rather than right around the corner. But now, the makers of the helmet say they’re just about ready to release their baby to store shelves, and it’s set to […]

    National Comedy Center: New Comedy Club Will Feature Dead Comedian Holograms

    In the great annals of bad ideas, there are some that stand out from the pack and demand to be recognized for their audacity and brazenness. One of those ideas has just come from the National Comedy Center, a new Jamestown, New York comedy club that will feature three-dimensional holograms of dead comedians like Rodney Dangerfield […]

    ’40/40 Live': New Talk Show Produced by Jay Z Announced

    Jay Z’s 40/40 Club in Manhattan purports to be a great place to watch sports and hang out, but it’s about to get packed with famous faces if Jay Z has his way. That’s because it will soon become home to 40/40 Live, an online talk show hosted by WNBA star Skylar Diggans and part of a […]

    ‘The Price Is Right’ Wheelchair-Bound Contestant Gets Awkward Prize (Video)

    If you thought cringe-comedy died along with Curb Your Enthusiasm, you must not be a regular viewer of The Price Is Right. That’s because a contestant on today’s episode, who happened to be in a wheelchair, was given a pretty uncomfortable prize in view of that fact: A treadmill. In a scenario that must have materialized directly from […]

    World’s Largest LEGO Millennium Falcon Constructed (Video)

    I don’t know what you did yesterday, but chances are it wasn’t as cool as helping to construct the world’s largest LEGO Millennium Falcon in honor of May the Fourth, otherwise known as Star Wars Day. Unless, of course, you happened upon the LEGO Star Wars display at the Westfield Southland mall in Melbourne, Australia, in which […]
