The Top 5 Batman Stories of All Time

The-Dark-Knight-Returns-Comic

The-Dark-Knight-Returns-ComicAccording to DC Comics, yesterday was officially International Batman Day. Now some blogs decided to dedicate the day to stories about Batman and his persistent awesomeness over the past 75 years, but not me. No, I decided to spend Batman’s 75th birthday stalking criminals from rooftops. Being that I live in the suburbs, and that people value not having random strangers on their roof, it was not…

Short Film Friday: Living Like Kings (Dir: Zoe McIntosh)

Living Like Kings

Living Like KingsLiving Like Kings is a captivating documentary short that leaves us far too quickly. At a far too brief 3 minutes, Living Like Kings plays witness to the great homeless migration from pauper to prince in the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. With rubble everywhere and luxury homes, condos, and hotels abandoned, many members of Christchurch’s homeless community found…

The 2014 Emmy Nominations are in!

Emmy trophy

Emmy trophyI’ve never understood why the Emmy Awards take place in the Summer rather than during Award Season with everything else.  Yes, the eligibility period allows for May sweeps, the traditional end of the network television series, but as a casual observer and an ardent non-network television viewer (save Community, but even it has gone to a web-based model now), the whole summer award show thing has…

Potato_salad_with_egg_and_mayoQuestion: What do you get when you combine potatoes, eggs, and mayonnaise? Answer: A $40,000 potato salad on Kickstarter. That is right! As ridiculous as it sounds, someone (Zach Danger Brown) has put his potato salad making dream (a dream of one night making potato salad) up on Kickstarterfor funding with the outrageous goal of $10. Well, the Internet being the meme hungry rotating door of…

Pink Floyd to release first new album in 20 years!!!

Pink Floyd Reunion Wall Live DVD 2011 (15)

Pink Floyd Reunion Wall Live DVD 2011 (15)Wow, 1994 was a long long time ago. That was the year of Pink Floyd’s last major release, The Division Bell. It was a beautiful album much in the vein of its direct predecessor A Momentary Lapse of Reason, and both were quintessential albums that defined Floyd in a post-Roger Waters era. Since then we have had a few Greatest Hits albums and some re-releases, but for the most part the band had…

E3 2014: A Reprieve from Franchise Fatigue

Kevin-Spacey-in-Call-of-Duty-Advanced-Warfare

Kevin-Spacey-in-Call-of-Duty-Advanced-WarfarePublishers love their franchises. They are the sure bets of the gaming industry and a guaranteed boon to the investors. Yet for many gamers, the constant string of games under the banner of titles like Call of Duty begins to generate a sense of fatigue. With little to no surprise in the annualized announcement of another military shooter, the hardcore gamer becomes cynical. In my case, no year in…

Arch Brewing Company Dinner Jacket O’Red IPA

Dinner Jacket IPA

What am I supposed to wear to this thing?

This is how it usually begins.  Well actually it begins with an invitation asking me to attend some social event that I probably don’t want to go to in the first place.  But once I’ve accepted that it can’t be that bad (but probably will be); I am confronted by a riddle.  Dress code: Business casual.  What the…

Meta-Review: Murdered: Soul Suspect

Murdered-Soul-SuspectWhen Square Enix announced Murdered: Soul Suspect (developed by Airtight Games) last year, it hit a certain curiosity with me. It was a ghost story, but it was not a horror game. It had much more in kinship with a L.A. Noire than a Silent Hill, and that gave the title a certain level of novelty. Playing a recently deceased detective searching for his killer while littered with bullet holes just…
