    ‘Searching': John Cho Just Wants His Daughter Back (Video)

    Hey, remember that movie Open Windows from a few years ago? Elijah Wood gets entangled in some sort of dangerous intrigue, and the whole movie is shot from a view of his computer screen?

    We Are Venom: Site Lets You Get Your Own Symbiote

    I’m not a Spider-Man scholar but I’m pretty sure it’s actually not a good thing to be be enmeshed with the alien symbiote that created Venom. You never get any sleep, you lose big chunks of time that you can’t account for, and, worst case scenario, the entity bonds with your consciousness and forms a […]

    It’s the holiday season, which means it’s time to clock yourself in a glorious robe of Arby’s roast beef.

    The “Friendsgiving” concept generally refers to a low-stress, low-pressure variant/companion to the traditional Thanksgiving feast, one devoted to one’s friends rather than family members.

    The blue check mark used on Twitter means that you can rest easy knowing that that’s the real James Woods, the same who starred in Casino and John Carpenter‘s Vampires, tweeting about Hillary Clinton all day.
