GOTHAM is the upcoming series which stars Ben McKenzie as a young Jim Gordon working as a cop in Gotham City, also doubling as an origin story for Batman and many of his most famous villians. If this trailer is any indication, they’re being very liberal with many of Batman’s eventual rogues gallery, given many of them seem to be adults when Bruce Wayne himself is only a child.

Behold the craptasticness that is the Star Wars Holiday Special, complete with the commercials it originally aired with. So bad, it’s still pretty damn bad.
Remember, Lucas, this came out in the late 70s. If you were going to wipe it off the face of the Earth, you missed your chance ages ago – the internet never forgets.
The latest Archer ISIS orientation video has been released. Only one month to go before this series is back on tv!
In case you haven’t heard, the NFL recently denied a commercial by Georgia-based firearms manufacturer Daniel Defense to be played during the 2014 Super Bowl XLVIII on FOX, on the grounds that it violates the firearms portion of the NFL’s Prohibited Advertising Categories:
“5. Firearms, ammunition or other weapons are prohibited; however, stores that sell firearms and ammunitions (e.g., outdoor stores and camping stores) will be permitted, provided they sell other products and the ads do not mention firearms, ammunition or other weapons.”
The commercial, which can be seen above, doesn’t technically violate the NFL’s policy, with (arguable) exception to the DDM4 silhouette logo at the end. Daniel Defense offered to replace the potentially offending logo with “…an American flag and/or the words “Shall not be infringed.””. The NFL countered the offer with an additional non-negotiable denial. Surprisingly, Daniel Defense had no trouble running a commercial in local Georgia markets during the 2012 Super Bowl XLVI on NBC.
You know that new show on Fox? The one that takes place in modern times with an undead(?) Ichabod Crane going after the headless horseman that turns out to be DEATH itself? Well, one of the characters in the show was spotted wearing a Shellback Tactical Banshee PC.
Today I learned that negligence is considered a malfunction, and not a violation of common sense.
We start this morning off with everyone’s favorite super spy Sterling Archer and celebrity chef Alton Brown showing us how to make Eggs Woodhouse, with predictable results. Man, this show really needs to come back on television.
Chromecast is an inexpensive device that allow you to stream from your computer directly to your television over your Wi-Fi connection. Actually, while that’s true, there are some restrictions. Specifically, Chromecast is designed to work best with certain devices and certain services/programs: if you want to stream YouTube, Google Play videos, or Netflix from your iOS, android, or computer you’re completely covered. Also, true to its name, it’s specific to the Chrome browser, so if your running it from your computer you’ll have to do all your surfing using Chrome for the device to work.
In my experience, you could project virtually any website to your tv if you wanted, although the stream to screen ratio was far from 1:1; lowering the stream quality from 720p to 480p helped a bit. You can almost get away with running ‘third party media players’ like Vimeo for a few seconds to a few minutes, until the stream decides to crash on you and you have to restart it. Overall, if you’re a Netflix or YouTube junkie without a game console or blu-ray player capable of streaming these services to your television, this might be the solution you’re looking for.
Spira and Duck Dynasty have partnered up to create officially licensed Duck Dynasty camouflage shoes. The shoes are based on Spira’s Stinger XLT performance shoe which features WaveSpring technology. They’re currently up for croudfunding on RocketHub, where they’ve already exceed their initial $100,000 goal. It’s also implied that only through RocketHub that the featured versions of these shoes can be obtained; they’re billed as limited edition. What’s really cool about the funding, however is that by exceeding the funding goal, A&E is donating $20,000 to America’s VetDogs, an organization that provides service dogs for disabled veterans and active duty personnel.
Les Stroud is getting his own comic book to be released this Fall, based on the Survivorman television show. ‘Survivorman: The Horn of Providence’, which involves Les ‘Survivorman’ Stroud chasing down a stolen artifact from American history, sounds a bit more Indiana Jones than the standard Survivorman affair. The story is being written by Dusty McGowen, with Brian Lucey and Matt Lesniewski on art, and is being published by Blue Water Comics.
