You Are Not So Smart Book Trailer

Enthralling trailer for David McRaney’s book, “You Are Not So Smart”. I love the animated typography – it has the effect of forcing you to be engaged with the video.


Trent Reznor And Karen O’s Cover Of Immigrant Song Is Cool

Apparently, this video also doubles as the title sequence for David Fincher’s upcoming film, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Kinda reminds you of the now classic title sequence for Se7en, huh?


There’s A New Rammstein Video

From the comments on Vimeo:

Technically OK, but I really miss the times, when Rammstein videos used to have a PLOT.

fun. Has A New Song Out

If you enjoy hot chicks peeling apples, boy have I got a music video for you to masturbate to watch!

fun.: We Are Young ft. Janelle Monáe (Audio) – YouTube.


New Orbital Song – Never

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard a new studio album from Orbital (2004!), but lo-and-behold, they’re back! (Hopefully with still-functioning glasses)

Great music to drive to and the video fully captures that soundscape. Strangely enough, though, I feel the urge to randomly shout “WRONG” when watching it. I wonder why that could be.


The Avengers Theatrical Trailer

F. and Yes.

I see what they did there by setting the trailer to Nine Inch Nails’ “We’re In This Together.” (because they’re a team of super heroes.)

I’m a little disappointed that we don’t get a glimpse of Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill even though she isn’t a “name” actor like the rest of the star studded lineup, but what can you do. I’m also talking myself into ScarJo as Black Widow. Probably because she doesn’t speak at all in the trailer.  I don’t want to set expectations too high, but based on this trailer and Joss Whedon’s track record, I think we might all have good reason to geek out next May – comics fan or not.


The Shadows Of The Damned Trailer Is An Extended Dick Joke With Pedigree

Some may think this promotional trailer for Shadows of the Damned is too juvenile because it’s essentially a laundry list of penis double entendres — not me.

I’m a sucker for dick jokes so they definitely got my attention with that, but after doing a little digging, I was surprised to find out that the game is actually a joint venture of acclaimed Japanese game designers Goichi Suda (No More Heroes/Killer 7) and Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil).

That’s a little mind blowing. It’s analogous to maybe something like a joint movie between Quentin Tarantino and JJ Abrams. Needless to say, Shadows of the Damned is now on my video games radar. It’s scheduled for release on June 21, 2011.


Some Dude Soloed Yogg-Saron In World Of Warcraft

Alright, this one may be just for me and those who have ever played World of Warcraft, but this video is pretty damn mindblowing.

Some dude killed one of the toughest raid bosses (Yogg-Saron, the tentacled, thousand moutheyes Old God) from the last World of Warcraft expansion by himself. This encounter used to take either 10 or 25 HIGHLY coordinated people and was the final boss of the game for a bit. I remembered doing this with a ten person group and still wiping for hours.

The real life equivalent would maybe be like an NBA player playing 1 on 5 vs, say, a high-school team. Yes, he’s a lot more skilled than the high-schoolers, but it’s still a cooperative team-game at heart.

Apparently it took him hours of trial and error to get the strategy and execution done right, but, by golly, he won in the end! I tip my hat to you, sir.


This Is One Of The Most Awesome Things Family Guy Has Done In Five Years

I’ll be the first to admit that Family Guy jumped the shark several years ago. But every once in awhile, they’ll put out an episode with a gem inside like they did this past week.

The setup is that Peter gets into a dispute with Lois’s favorite dry cleaner, Mr. WasheeWashee. Eventually they get into a fight in the old school Street Fighter 2 style. It’s admittedly very well done. Love how Peter says “tatsumaki senpuukyaku.”


They Are Making A Street Fighter Vs Tekken Game

Given that there’s a Street Fighter vs _____ game for almost everything these days, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that Capcom and Namco are working on Street Fighter X Tekken. But I’d be lying if I said I knew of its existence before. It looks like a mashup between Tekken Tag Tournament and Street Fighter 4, which is shaping up to be pretty darn awesome if you ask me.

Also, after watching this trailer it’s no surprise why the Tekken fighters are such big pussies. They can’t shoot fireballs or sonic booms and shit so they get their asses kicked by some real fighters. I mean, look at this shit, they get beastified by the Street Fighter dudes. (Can you tell which game I was partial to as a kid?)
