China, IL: The Best Show You’re Not Watching

[Adult Swim] has a long history of shows that could never be broadcast anywhere else: Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Squidbillies, Metalocalypse, Super Jail. Simply put, they have the freedom to take risks that a network like FOX (the only network broadcaster to recently find any success with animation) can’t afford to take. Often you will […]

10 Signs You Were Born in the ’80s

If any of these things apply to you, you were totally born in the ’80s! Like… gag me with a spoon!

Pinball: The Game of the Future

In the past, I have proven myself a sort of trend scout. I don’t want to say trendsetter, because that would imply that my involvement was part of what created the trend. Frankly, I’m not that cool.

Policies and Change From the Desk of Pope Sidious I

Earlier today Pope Enabler CCLXIV announced his intentions to resign from the papacy. His rule has been infallible as usual, so we’re all heartbroken to see him go. But fear not! Don’t look at this as the end of a chapter, but rather a window opening. A Carl shaped window as I smash through the […]
