I think Stuff is over…

February 4, 2010

Sorry guys, I think I owe you an explanation.

I am no longer writing for Stuff. I’m going to do my own thing and hopefully it survives longer than Stuff did. The other writers stopped showing up back in October, so it was just me for the last few months. Then I got lazy around the holidays and slacked off too.

No need to worry! The Angry Building is up and running! Expect the same type of content, and hopefully no drop offs…

So long Stuff…It’s been a fun ride.

Holy crap! Demonoid is back!

December 13, 2009

Seriously! Go look! After a long 3 month downtime, the free rental site Demonoid.com is back up. Their main page says they are running a test script to see how things work, but the downloads are working. There have been some minor problems connecting to the site, but that may be from all the people trying to connect at once.

Oscar Mike for charity

December 4, 2009

Anyone that’s played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has heard the phrase “Oscar Mike.” Some of those players didn’t know what it meant, including myself, and made me think of Oscar Mayer Bologna. Oscar Mike means “On the Move.”

Short review: COD:MW2 is an awesome game. The story didn’t feel like the previous, this one had more of an epic action movie feel. The online is just massive. Check it out.

Giant Bomb has Oscar Mike T-shirts for purchase in their shop. The proceeds will go to the Child’s Play charity fund.

Get Oscar Mike to Giant Bomb now!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, and a Happy Thursday to everyone else outside the U.S.

Warning: Crazy Super Not Work Safe

 

Mischief. Mayhem. Soap

November 22, 2009

A Peruvian gang has been capturing local farmers, killing them and using their fat to produce soap to sell in the European cosmetics market.

Three members of the gang have arrested and confessed to at least five of the murders, and even detail how they went about rendering the fat.

I will put the rest of the story after the jump. Here is your first warning. The details are graphic, they are not for those with a weak stomach. They may make you question using soap.

Get ready for Black Friday

November 15, 2009

Here in the states we have our Christmas decorations up in July. No one cares about anything but Christmas from October until probably January. It’s a sad disturbing fact.

In these crappy economic times, money is tight. We are looking for anyway to save a couple bucks when we shop. Tis’ the season to be spending it seems. Don’t fret, the fake holiday Black Friday is just around the corner! Screw Thanksgiving, it’s Christmas shopping time!

I found a decent site that has a collection of this year’s Black Friday ads. That way you can save the change you would spend on a news paper, and use it to buy an HDTV or something!

Spider-Man filming might be a little delayed…

November 15, 2009

Spider-Man was recently arrested for punching a tourist while in costume. I’m sure it was an accident, his spider sense probably went off and he swung at the first target. Jameson is probably having the best day of his life right now.

In serious news, the guys that dresses up as Spidey and entertains tourists on Hollywood Boulevard was arrested. There was a call to police about a man dressed as the web slinger had hit a tourists in the face and arm. The police showed up and found 4 people dressed as web head. They found the assailant, but the tourist didn’t want to press charges, instead the man had outstanding warrants and was taken into custody.

The Spider-Man movies are in no way related or effected by this.

Cort and Fatboy: Mediocrity at its finest

November 10, 2009

I doubt many of you have heard of these guys. Cort and Fatboy once hosted “The Cort and Fatboy” show on KUFO out of Portland, Oregon. You might be saying to yourself, “Wait, Nick is from Roanoke, VA. How does he know about this?!” A friend of mine on Xbox Live told me about them and I’ve been listening to them for a while.

Recently Cort and Fats had been fired from their spot on KUFO due to new owners and the owners screwing everything up. The community freaked out, without their afternoon radio hosts, daytime entertainment would suck!

Well the guys are back, and they have their own show on their website. They provide a daily podcast for your listening pleasure. They focus mainly on pop culture and current events. So if you need a good laugh, or just want to hear some smart mouthed snark, check them out.

Any Hipsters out there with $300 Million?

November 10, 2009

I can hear Dennis Hopper screaming at us already… Turns out the brewery that makes Pabst and other cheap beer is being sold. Bank of America Merril Lynch is in charge of finding a buyer for the sale, which could cost the new owner $300 Million USD to purchase.

With the sudden increase in profits over the last couple years, selling the brand is a wise decision. That is if you’re into making money, but really, who isn’t?

Another Pabst Blue Ribbon post gives me an excuse to post this video too!

Mad Max: Fury Road News

October 28, 2009

I’ll just let the director, George Miller, do the talking. He seems to be doing a lot of casting work, and getting things ready for filming. I’m glad he’s taking the movie seriously and putting some effort into it.

The movie has a $100 Million budget and will be shooting in various locations in Australia.

 

Zombie punched in Iowa while ordering food?

October 28, 2009

Some more zombie news for you all. A man in Iowa was punched in the face while ordering food. Why does this involve zombies?

The man that was punched was called a zombie by another man, then hit in the face. The Zombie-ish victim tried to call the police on his cell phone, but was hit again resulting in a broken nose.

The man then ran out the back door of the restaurant, and the victim was taken to the hospital.

While I want to award the puncher for his quick action in taking down a zombie, he also gets a demerit cause the “zombie” spoke to him. Zombie’s can’t talk, nor do they order food. Unless the moans for flesh and brains is them placing an order…

Zombies invade Monroeville Mall

October 25, 2009

Whoa whoa whoa..Calm down, put the shotgun away. Zombies didn’t really invade a mall, at least not real zombies. On October 11th a group of 2,000 people dressed as zombies and “invaded” Monroeville Mall.

This hoard of the undead shambled through the mall George A. Romero used for his zombie tale Dawn of the Dead. For other zombie fans, that mall is not just a shopping center, but a cultural icon.

The Wall Street Journal has a write up of the event along with a great gallery of images from the invasion.

Personal Note: Is Nick running the show?

October 23, 2009

A lot of stuff has been going on recently. School has doubled if not tripled its work load on me. So trying to juggle employment and school work, along with this shining beacon of internet goodness, is a difficult task. Also doesn’t help that Borderlands has completely taken over my gaming life.

So where is everyone else? Haven’t seen anything from the other writers here in a month! A MONTH! Not sure what’s going on there. I will continue the postifications as long as you guys keep reading.

Unrelated note, Today is my birthday! Huzzah!
