My favorite part of Disneyland was always the ‘Star Tours’ ride. However, the recent revamp has left me unsatisfied and a little disappointed..
There is A New Hope! Star Wars Land is coming to Anaheim and Orlando. Over 14 acres each, it’s Disney’s largest single themed land expansion ever. Disney’s goal, “transporting guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life.”
Bob Iger, Disney’s CEO, had this to say:
“I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars,” said Iger. “We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single themed land expansion ever. These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet, including an epic Star Wars adventure that puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.”

If you loved old monster movies from the 1930s and 1950s, TITANO is right up your alley. A short tribute film directed by Ben Chavda and starring Irwin Keyes, TITANO is a look into the life of an old character actor who is able to play the role of a lifetime in a surprising turn of events. Endearing and slightly melancholy, the short is a wonderful tribute, and even more poignant as Irwin Keyes died shortly after filming was completed.

Remember a couple weeks ago when Babble reported on the performance enhancing drugs scandal of the eSport arena? Remember how it sounded riiiiidiculous? Well, it’s actually THIS serious. Check the vid for a really awesome explanation by @hingers… don’t get distracted by the aussie accent coming from his cute asian face though. LISTEN TO HIS WORDS.
But Kory Friesen, I thought you didn’t care! Why the retraction?!
No words. Shhhhhh… just watch it.
If I was Canadian, he would get MY vote.
The time has come for me to buy my own firefly class spaceship, assemble a rag tag group of people to become my space family, and go on great adventures to see the outer reaches of the universe AND to become the GREATEST SPACE PIRATE OF ALL TIME. And now that I can grow my own produce in space, food will never be a problem again.

So… there’s this….
Microsoft has announced that they will be focusing their investments on first party games (like Halo), rather than third party games (like Call of Duty). What does that mean? It means that Microsoft will be trying to develop a large, xbox exclusive, repertoire of games, so that you and I will HAVE to buy the Xbox ONE console in order to play them.
Hit the jump for more on the announcement and a video of some of the exclusive features of Xbox ONE.
Breathe in that air. Do you smell it? Do you taste it? Feel it?
Jon Stewart isn’t hosting the Daily Show anymore. No longer will your late night pizza or study breaks be hosted by that wise man playing the fool. No more NYC pizza raves and rants, no more Italian mob impressions, no more stereotypical Jewish grandma impressions, no more “HELLOOOOO” shrilly screeched in his best Queen Elizabeth, and no more self-deprecating one liners.
Hit the Jump for one of my favorite (there are SO many how can I choose?!) Jon Stewart Daily Show moments:
AUGH! I loved the first Mirror’s Edge (something about an asian WOMAN being a kick ass protagonist of a video game makes me feel at home) and Catalyst looks even more heart pumpingly THRILLING! So, hey friends! Better get all your Mina time in NOW because in 7 months you won’t see ANY OF HER! Mina, you don’t have any friends. Ok… well… then… PROBLEM SOLVED YOU HEARTLESS BASTARD!

Holy shit, this thing works better than I thought possible! Lexus has released video of pro skaters riding their hoverboard for the first time. DUDE! Check the vid below… hooo but watching it glide seamlessly from pavement to over water… ::shivers;: I’m not too proud to admit that a little wee came out when I saw that.
Hold your pee and check it out~
The future is HERE B*TCHES!
No need for pleasantries on this one, kiddies. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
