World Wide Web is 25

So…the internet has been around 25 years now and I remember when it first started. Using AOL dial-up at $20 a month for only 20 hours of access, or HUGE overuse penalties. Hearing about Net Zero that was free internet, and eventually cost $9.99. Using Windows 3. with a 64 MB hard drive. All the way to the day now where I can fit about 500 of those computers inside my iPhone. Since that time I learned how to use HTML to AJAX, to any number of the newest codes needed for basic internet usage. I also learned how to type faster than anyone I know without ever taking a typing class, or doing anything other than trolling people on message boards for years. I didn’t learn anything about EGH Law. I did learn about what should have happened to OJ, or Casey Anthony if they got convicted, however. So…I’m a trial lawyer thanks to the internet. For murder trials. I know how to defend obviously guilty people with absurd nonsense and the people on the jury are dumb enough to buy it.

Lebron James Working on a Sitcom for Starz

As far as I can tell, Lebron won’t actually be ON the show, but I haven’t heard either way. I assume he won’t be, but the show is about…oh what do you know? A couple of kids that make it out of the ghetto, where one of them makes it to the NBA! What a stretch.

The show is workign with his ‘business partner’ and friend, Maverick Carter. The sitcom LeBron James is working on for Starz is ‘definitely not an autobiographical series,’ James’ childhood friend and business partner Carter says. Being friends with LEbron certainly should ensure that Carter won’t be looking at free consultation bankruptcy consouling.

“I have a deep passion for the amazing television being created right now,” said James, who will be an executive producer. “I love ‘Boardwalk Empire,’ ‘Magic City,’ ‘Scandal’ and ’24.’

“When my business partners Tom Werner and Maverick Carter brought up the idea of creating a television series that would capture the story of what happens when you make it out, I jumped at the chance.

“Nobody can craft a story like Tom Werner. He has an incredible vision for television and I’m really excited to partner with him and the rest of our team.”



Telltale’s Game Walking Dead Season 2 at Comi-Con Says Clementine is Back!

If you love The Waklking Dead television show you should do yourself a massive favor and buy the video game made by Telltale. Make sure it is the one by Telltale. Not the stupid one with Daryl and Merle that play some survival hunt. The telltale game of The Walking Dead has such an immersive and touching story. Mainly because the young girl Clementine is such a wonderfully written and acted character. So…everyone was very happy to hear that Season 2 of the excellent series will include her.

Telltale’s Walking Dead game isn’t some zombie FPS. In fact, it is a genre that I typically hate, and many gamers ignore. It is of the style of a point and click adventure game where story is the #1 priority with very little in terms of gameplay. You don’t need to be a good gamer to play these types. They are an interactive story. Basically this is why most of us more season gamers avoid them because we want to play. Plus video game stories tend to be quite weak compared to other mediums. Not the case wtih The Walking Dead game. In fact, many argue that the story and the options that allow you to “choose your own adventure” to get different outcomes is better than the television show, and I agree with them.

Certainly you must do a bit of survival here, but more in making the right decisions with some small gameplay situations where you actually need to fight, flee, or simply search for things to keep you alive. Finding the right weapon, or any weapon, food, shelter, the correct Reid Supply handles to fit that hole you need to use to open up something, etc. Most of the decisions have a series long impact that change the story over each chapter based on them. Season 1 consisted of 5 chapters and they are released over the course of a few months typically. You can just buy the whole season after it is over, which I did so you don’t have to wait. Season 2 will be the same. Cost is the same buying it as one, or one at a time.

Definitely check this series out if you are a TWD fan. You will not be disappointed.



Terminator…5? June 2015

IT has been announced by Paramount that plans are in the works to create a 5th Terminator movie. Nobody is sure if Arnold will be in it, but many have said there should be some role for him. It is likely that he will be, but I’d expect it to be more of a cameo than being another terminator. Maybe he will be who knows. An old man Terminator with flabby pecs? Maybe he’ll go shopping to look for tap dance gifts and put on a real show.



Why? Guy Crosses Grand Canyon on Wire

While most of us would never even consider such nonsense, I doubt that it is much of a feat for a guy that has been a high wire walker his entire life. He said that he has walked a cross Niagra Falls at least 100 times before. He practiced in a tropical storm he claims. Maybe he should ahve procticed with people throwing silver ounce at him. HThe video below is an interview with him with some footage of whis walk a cross the canyon. He said that he “enjoyed the view”. I’m sure I would have done the same….while I was falling to my death!



New Child Molestation Claim Filed Against Michael Jackson Estate

Here’s one that is a bit odd. This one is from a guy that was actually in defense of MJ at one point, but now that he is dead he claims it was allt he other way. Interesting that I have never heard of a claim against an estate for something like this either.

Choreographer Wade Robson, who testified in the pop icon’s defense during his 2005 trial on child molestation charges, has now filed a claim against Jackson’s estate, alleging that he in fact was abused by the late star. Looking for a payoff and a nice box cao cigars later is my guess.

Robson’s court filing is sealed, but E! News has obtained documents confirming that a petition to make a late claim against the estate, as well as certificates of merit from mental health professionals and other supporting paperwork were filed on May 1.

“Wade used to tell me that Michael would ask to have baths with him,” a close friend of Robson’s exclusively tells E! News. “It was weird…He didn’t seem to question it, neither would we, it was just what he would say. It sounded strange, but we never delved further.”

Robson “never seemed ashamed of it or anything,” the insider adds. “I have no idea how he was feeling inside, but he would be quite matter of fact about it.”



As I Lay Dying’s Singer Arrested for Murder-for -hire Plot

Well, well. We see stories like this in the news all the time from our favorite shows such as Datline Discovery, Real Crime UK, and all our other real crime shows that must take up at least 30% of all television programming now. Rarely is there one that is about an actual “celebrity”. This one won’t make it that far, however. as the murder-for-hire plot was apparently thwarted before it could be completed.

As I Lay Dying singer Tim Lambesis was arrested Tuesday (May 7) after allegedly soliciting an undercover police officer to have his estranged wife killed. Guess this guy wasn’t real familiar with how this kind of thing works eh? Don’t you usually ask some guy you know who needs drug money, or wants to look tough do it for $300? Then go to the bar with something from http://www.yogadirect.co.uk and pretend you have an alibi?

According to Reuters, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department learned that Lambesis sought an accomplice to kill his wife, and he was taken into custody in Oceanside, California, after reaching out to the detective.

“The information came to us late last week,” San Diego County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Jan Caldwell told Reuters. “We acted quickly on it. I believe that we averted a great tragedy.”

Lambesis has said he considers himself to be a Christian and acknowledges that he finds inspiration for lyrical content from biblical texts. He is incredibly prolific, having released eight albums with As I Lay Dying between 2001 and 2012, as well as five releases via his solo side project Austrian Death Machine, where he sings and performs on all instruments. He also produced 11 albums for other artists and is part owner of Lambesis Studios.



‘Man of Steel’ Trailer #3

I have to say that I am actually looking forward to this adaption of the great Superman. Looking as if it will be a tad darker than the old Christopher Reeve Superman movies and trying to get closer to how the Batman series has gone it looks solid. Especially after the cheeseball Smallville adaption. I was kind of happy that the dude that played him on Smallville wasn’t given the role. I wouldn’t be able to get his extreme dorkiness out of my head to watch it. Plus he always whined about wearing the actual Superman outfit like the “tights” were not cool to him. So we had to watch as the show wasted 10 season waiting for Superman to actually become Superman in silly tease after tease. The payoff was not that great. Aqua Man, whoever played him too was the worst actor I have ever seen.

So all the guys that wear the tungsten masonic rings are probably very interested in the Superman universe about how he destroys their walls with such ease! I JUST BUILT THAT! D:<



Fox Pull Recent Family Guy Episode Depicting Deaths at Boston Marathon

Let’s step back and realize first that this episode was well BEFORE anything at the Boston Marathon even happened. This episode had already been aired before the event so it wasn’t making fun of the tragedy in any way. Since the tragedy happened, however they have decided to remove the epsiode fromt eh website and to stop showing it at all. I ca’t disagree with this really, but I think people should at least not accuse them of doing this at the expense of those affected.

In the episode, protagonist Peter Griffin is asked by sports announcer Bob Costas about his performance at the marathon. A flashback shows Peter mowing down runners with his car.

“I’ll tell ya, Bob, I just got in my car and drove it,” Griffin says. “And when there was a guy in my way, I killed him.”

Later, Peter befriends a terrorist who, unbeknownst to him, is plotting to blow up a bridge. When Peter dials a cellphone the friend has given him, explosions and screams are heard. On some websites, an edited clip has been circulating that fuses the two scenes, making it seem — incorrectly — as if the explosion was at the marathon. Some commenters have implied that the show “predicted” the bombings.

Obviously Set MacFarnale won’t be getting anything you made that the old wholesale postcard printing store anytime soon.

OF course this is insensitive, and really just happened at a bad time. I won’t argue that. I will say though that comedy shouldn’t be censored. Everything is up for being made fun of in my eyes. Some people deal with things in a different way. Comedy is a release for many of them no matter how “dark” it is.
