    ‘Tron: Legacy’ Lightcycle Can Be Yours for an Estimated $40,000

    It was literally only yesterday that I made a joke about Tron: Legacy on this very site, in an article about The Closet of Legends.

    Starting on June 1st, a bunch of top-level domain names are going to be up for grabs.

    ‘Election 2016: Too Many Cooks’ CNN Parodies ‘Too Many Cooks’ (Video)

    No, you didn’t misread that headline. 24-hour news network CNN is encroaching on Turner buddy Adult Swim’s territory with a video that parodies the late-night comedy channel’s Too Many Cooks video short using figures from the upcoming 2016 election.
