"I'll give you a left turn, bitch!" - Let's Play GTA V - Crazy Taxi

This was one hilarious LP. This is one of those Team Lads vs. Team Gents videos and the idea is that one of them plays a taxi driver and has to try and pick up and drop off the other two members of their team (one at a time) while the other team tries to kill the driver. Just to make things interesting, only one member on the opposing team can use a pistol; the others are restricted to flying a helicopter and driving a police car. It looks like they were trying to keep points, but that was ditched pretty quickly, since neither team was declared the winner. I have to wonder why anybody gets into a helicopter in this game when Gavin is the pilot, because you know he's going to crash that thing some point soon.

That limo at the end took everything - a helicopter crashing into it, rammings by a police car, being shot repeatedly - and survived it all until the...well, you gotta watch the video to find out.

Mind the dust - blog overhaul in process

The jiggering is getting rejiggered and the polarity is getting inverted! It's like how they redid all the cutscenes in Halo 2, but not as creepy.

Well, the Rooster Teeth/Achievement Hunter fandoms now know what Gavin and Geoff's pubes look like...

Why god, why? For those who don't want to watch the video: Geoff's wife, Griffon shaves his beard and Gavin's hair off, then they stick the latter's hair to the former's face and the former's to Gavin's head.

Then it gets straight up weird. Both Gavin and Geoff shave their pubes and glue them to Griffon's armpits (Gavin's on the right, Geoff's on the left), then go out for like a beer or something at the end. I swear I am not making any of that up.

So context: Gavin, Geoff and his wife Griffon filmed all of these home videos over the past five or so years and only now have started uploading them to the Rooster Teeth YouTube channel. From what I can tell, I think this video was filmed back during the early days of Versus, possibly episode 13.

People from Rooster Teeth aren't normal, LMAO.

In case you've ever wondered what the Nintendo originally looked like - the Famicom

Then again, every gamer probably knows what it looks like already, but I still think it's worth posting.

I like the holders on the side for the controllers. Those would have been a nice addition to the NES over either just leaving them where they lie or wrapping the cord around them. Speaking of controllers, the one docked to the console is different than the other. No Select or Start buttons, but it has a built in mic, along with a volume control. Apparently this was soon done away with and the second controller became identical to the first. They were both also originally hardwired into the Famicom itself before Nintendo changed that too.

I heard once that the reason why Nintendo designed the NES differently is because they believed that American consumers wouldn't take the console seriously unless it was bigger. No idea if that's true, but honestly, I'm willing to believe it is.

In which I list my favorite Kevin Smith movies

1. Mallrats.
I like Mallrats because it's just a funny movie is an oddball plot. Brodie and T.S. spend an entire day in a mall and later, an indoor flea market (or dirt mall, as T.S. calls it). In that time they help derail a knockoff of The Dating Game, get several people arrested, meet a fortune teller with a third nipple, and win back their girlfriends. Not bad for a day. The cameo by Stan Lee is nice, as is the comic book references. The running gag with Silent Bob constantly crashing through things while Joey Lauren Adam's character is trying on clothes in dressing rooms always gets me laughing.

Someone created a 3D model of Milo Manara's Spider-Woman pose...and it is the stuff of nightmares

Credit: imgur/reddit/the darkest pits of the abyss
That's um...that's pretty fucking terrifying, dude. Can you imagine being a supervillain and seeing that crawling towards you? You'll never be the same again.

I really am a profound idiot

In which I realize that knowing how to sew, I could have been mending all of those socks instead of throwing them away. I have trashed I don't know how many pairs over the last few years and wasted money buy more to replace them, only to repeat the cycle.

I am not the brightest, comrades, that's for sure.

And this is what happens when you hire an artist know for his erotic art to draw a variant cover for Spider-Woman

Maybe it's a parody of Nicki Minaj's Anaconda album cover?
(via Bleeding Cool)
There is nooooo way that Marvel didn't expect this to happen. Milo Manara is pretty famous for giving his art a sexual bent to it, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that he did the same with Spider-Woman. Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking his artwork in general, because it's pretty damn good. I just don't like his variant cover. The comic industry needs to stop sexualizing and especially over-sexualizing female characters just because they think it'll lead to more sells. Stop treating your female characters like masturbatory aids, you dumb fucks.

Here are some links to articles on The Mary Sue that can do this more justice than I can.

SummerSlam 2014 predictions

Rob Van Dam vs. Antonio Cesaro: Why?

Prediction: Cesaro if there's a god. Getting reeeeeeal tired of WWE waffling on Cesaro.

Bray Wyatt vs. Jericho: Second time in a row for these two because WWE doesn't have anybody else for Bray to feud with.

Prediction: If Bray doesn't win, then they're burying him like they buried Ryback. Seriously, the man cannot continue losing PPVs and still be seen with a credible threat. To say nothing that a victory does nothing for a part-timer like Jericho.

Rusev vs. Jack Swagger: This feud is pretty boring and only barely kept afloat by Lana and Zeb. Even then, I could care less.

Prediction: Sylvester Stallone shows up and KOs both of them. Failing that, it depends on how much longer they plan on keeping this thing rolling. Swagger should win in that case, but again, who cares?

AJ Lee vs. Paige: If AJ wins again, then does the feud end and if not, what's keeping it going?

Prediction: No idea.

Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins: Will they finally get to fight? God, I hope so.

Prediction: Dean to end the feud and Rollins to continue it.

Dolph Ziggler vs. 80s gay pornstar Miz (Champ) for the Intercontinental Championship: Bad News Barrett got injured months back and had to vacate the IC title. For reasons unknown, they decided to give the belt to Miz. Not having anything for him to do after that, they put him in a feud with Ziggler, who likewise had nothing to do.


Stephanie McMahon vs. Brie Bella (or should that be Brie Bryan? Brie Bella-Bryan?): In a nutshell, Brie "quit" WWE months ago so that her injured husband could keep a title that he was stripped of anyways and this started a feud between the two women, with Steph putting Brie's sister Nikki in one handicap match after another. Eventually the two confronted each other on an episode of Monday Night Raw where Brie was attending as a fan. This led to a face off and Steph slapped the ever loving shit out of her. This, in turn, led to Steph being arrested for assault.

When Steph got out of jail and hardened by her experience like only prison life can (those must have been some tough few hours), she tried to convince Brie to drop the charges. The latter did in exchange for getting her job back...and a match at SummerSlam. Yada, yada, yada, Steph ended up giving both Bellas Pedigrees (which was fucking awesome) during the contract signing, but not before Triple H got dropped by one hell of a slap from Brie.

Then it all turned to shit with WWE's writers stealing one of the stupidest storylines not just in TNA, but all of wrestling history by having Steph troll Brie with the "revelation" that Daniel had been carrying on an affair with his physical therapist. TNA did something like this that involved a woman named Claire Lynch claiming that AJ Styles had knocked her up. It was a terrible, terrible, shitty storyline, but WWE decided to use it.

Prediction: I keep seeing rumors that Nikki Bella is going to turn heel on her sister and that'll set up a feud between them. I hope not. I don't have a prediction for this one because all I want to see is Brie using a Knee Plus and the Yes! Lock (both finishing moves of her husband) and Steph using the Pedigree.

Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton: I'm assuming that they're building towards a Reigns vs. Triple H match at some point in the future, but Roman has to go through Randy first to finish their feud.

Prediction: Roman Reigns.

John Cena (Champ)  vs. MY CLIENT BROOOOOOOOOOCK LESNAR CONQUERED THE STREAK AT WRESTLEMANIA for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship: I wonder who Lesnar's opponent is going to be at the next PPV? Please let it be Cesaro!

Prediction: Brock Lesnar. All the hype and rumors have him winning, but WWE could easily swerve us, but I doubt it. I've seen rumors that Cena is going to take time off to do movie commitments.

I actually like Wonder Woman's movie costume

The only real complaint I have - and I've seen others say the same - is that the colors are too muted.

(via ComicsAlliance)
I can understand that they didn't want to go with vibrant colors, but there is a spectrum out there aside from brown and red dark enough to be confused with brown. I've also seen complaints about the pseudo-heels on her boots, but I'm not bothered by them. I like that they went with a leather skirt thing instead of star-spangled tights. It invokes the Greek hoplite vibe that Wonder Woman and the rest of the Amazons invoke. Speaking of warrior women, I don't see why people keep joking about the costume looking like Xena's.

In the end, the only complaint I really and truly have is that this isn't for a Wonder Woman solo movie. DC can kiss my ass and continue puckering up until the character gets her own movie. Their argument that making a WW movie would be "too difficult" or whatever is complete and total bullshit. She's part of their "Trinity" in the comics alongside Superman and Batman, and is probably the most well known female superhero out there, so they have no excuse.
