So … I was supposed to hang out with my friend Josh Z. last night but, alas, it just didn’t work out. Due to JZ’s poor planning with schedules, we weren’t able to get it together. BUT, honestly … a night in was just what I needed. I’ve been running around a lot lately so it was nice to stay home and do nothing. I caught up on some DVRed TV, read some and spent WAY TOO MUCH TIME playing Robot Unicorn Attack 2 on my iPhone. Yes, folks, it’s true … I’m talking hours. OY! More »
150 People Laid Off Today
Yikes! Back in October we learned that the Walt Disney Company purchased Lucasfilm (along with all it’s subsidiaries and properties) and until now, the deal sounded like a good one for all of the Lucas employees … but today, we learn that Disney has decided to shut down the entire LucasArts video game division. The move means that some 150 people have lost their jobs and all current projects from LucasArts have been cancelled. Yikes! Click below to learn more. More »

Yesterday was a very nice, very quiet day for me … which went absolutely according to plan. Because of all the running around I’ve been doing in the past week and because I’ll be torturing myself by running the LA Marathon this coming Sunday, I’ve decided that this week is going to be a very relaxed week for me. The most exciting thing I got up to yesterday was playing video games on the couch. Yes, folks, it was a rabble-rousing Tuesday around the old homestead :D More »

The Best Thing Ever
An industriously clever guy named Bill Kiley at Left Coast Digital in Santa Cruz, CA has come up with a fictional video game version of the hit PBS series Downtown Abbey that might’ve been a hit game on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. This brilliant video game parody will likely be the most amazing thing you’ll see all day … possibly all weekend. I mean, you simply must watch the video if for the theme song alone. Check out the embed above and imagine what it might’ve been like to play the Downton Abbey for SNES if it existed back in the early 90′s.
OH and if you really love the chippy version of the Downton Abbey theme song, you can download it HERE from the creator himself. PS: Guess what my new ringtone is ;)

Dido Still Hearts Hip-Hop
We all remember Dido from Eminem‘s 1999 hit Stan, and the British singer/songwriter is back with a new track from her forthcoming album, Girl Who Got Away. I’m especially excited because Let Us Move On features my new fave rapper, Kendrick Lamar. Every morning I listen to Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe (sans Lady Gaga, lol), and now I have another morning inspirational in Let Us Move On. Peep the audio above! Any Dido fans in the building? The lyrics to the song are absolutely beautiful– you can check them out over at DirectLyrics.
Girl Who Got Away drops on March 4th, 2013.
Honestly? Video gaming never looked/sounded so cool. Apparently Sleeping Dogs is a crime drama video game that, essentially, allows you to become Emma Stone (she voices one of the characters, Amanda Cartwright). I am so not a gamer but I would totally become one if it involved close contact (sort of) with the one they call Emma. Which is why I’m currently nursing some serious jealousy issues towards Shenae Grimes and Audrina Patridge, who got to play this game all night long at Dim Mak Studios in Hollywood, while looking (naturally) ultra-sexy. I’m gonna need to call them later and ask about what happened to my invite, because they look like they were having a blast with Sleeping Dogs, while I was most likely doing the dishes. Not cool. But the pics are cool (especially the one of the fish tank), and we’ve got a few in the gallery. Checkie out! Any gamers out there? What have I been missing?!

Meet Bond's Newest Villain
Back in May we got to check out the first domestic movie trailer for the forthcoming new James Bond film titled Skyfall. Today we get to check out the newly released international trailer for the film … and it is must see. There’s a new villain in town, played by Javier Bardem, and we get to meet him for the first time in this new trailer. We also get a better understanding about the film’s plot line. As I’ve made clear many times before, Daniel Craig is my favorite James Bond. I am very much looking forward to seeing him in action again as 007. I only kinda liked the first trailer, I really love this one.

Yesterday was a pretty fantabulous day, if I do say so myself. Early in the day, I received a very special package in the mail. In the afternoon, I went to a preview movie screening (full review forthcoming). Last night, I spent some time running from zombies. Yes, it was a very full, very fun day. More »

"The lambs have come to the killing floor"
Back in December we got to check out the first trailer for this year’s Joss Whedon-produced horror film The Cabin in the Woods. As you may recall, we learned from that trailer that Joss‘s take on the traditional horror film is vastly different than the slasher flicks we are used to seeing. Today we get to check out the second trailer for The Cabin in the Woods and now that the secret’s out, this trailer gets right to the nitty gritty about what we can expect when this film hits theaters later this year.
