That Was The Week That Was
Hey. It’s Friday. Wow, that whole week sure happened, didn’t it?
- Microsoft’s Kinect game system isn’t racist; it just has trouble in the dark. I think I saw this on “Better Off Ted.” Alternate joke: Yeah, that’s what Mel Gibson said. Alternate alternate joke: Yeah, but you should hear Mario when he goes off on the Jews. I could go on.
- Do not piss off the Internet. Cooks Source magazine tried that, and look what happened next.
- Speaking of plagiarism, I stole this cartoon off Salon, which may have stolen it off someone else. It’s pretty much the saddest thing I’ve ever seen today:
- Hey, did you know Bruce Wayne pays for all Batman’s stuff? Now everyone in Gotham City does, too.
- My pal Leslie Gornstein wrote an article about a dibbuk box. Sam Raimi is making it into a movie, and now there’s a director and a release date. It’s still a year away, but I’m buying my tickets now.
- What else Meg Whitman could have done with all that money.
- I enjoy reading the reviews of “Community” on the AV Club almost as much as I do watching the show.
- By the way, new Elvis Costello album hit this week.
- A little late to this, but the Harpies are looking for a new member of their coven. Sharp claws a plus.
- Insanely detailed map of the events in The Walking Dead. (via the AV Club, which is where all my ideas come from, apparently).
- #tweetyour16yearoldself – if Twitter worked like a time machine, what would you tell yourself? Aside from “invent Twitter,” I mean. My best advice to myself back then? “Read more. Drink less.”
