    ‘Deadpool 2’ Motion Posters Are Trading Card Inspired

    Here’s some movie advertising that hits me close to home.

    Bosch EasyCut 12 Miniature Chainsaw

    Now here’s a device that makes you wish that noted Italian horror film director Dario Argento was still in his prime. It’s called the Bosch EasyCut 12, but that’s only because the folks at Bosch evidently didn’t want to come out and just call it a miniature chainsaw. Let’s take a look at the bullet points, […]

    ‘Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart’ Board Game Variant Out Now

    If I were to try to think about two games that are pretty much the exact opposite of one another, Mario Kart and Monopoly may spring to mind.
