Every night, before I go to bed, I keep up with the news. Well, the fake news. But the actual news that matter. Last night’s Colbert Report had a segment about going back into 1997. It was a very funny written segment that all of you geeks have to see. Oh, and I took the liberty of creating an animated gif for your guys of him dancing to “mmmm bop.”
We all expected this to happen and now it finally did. Heath Ledger wins Best Supporting Actor at this years Oscars for playing our favorite villain, the Joker. Congrats sir. You deserve it. Your legacy is now solidified.
Last night, I was watching some Futurama on Comedy Central when the above ad appeared. How did this get on the air? So, the FCC is telling me that implied blowjobs are ok to show on the air? I think the below classic internet video below would be a better ad.
Last night’s Saturday Night Live demonstrated how you are supposed to properly play Wario Shake ’em Up on the Wii. As you can tell, they are doing it right, but there is no multiplayer mode like “that.”
Look who is joining the HD Band Wagon. You can chalk up another “Simpsons did it” for becoming one of the first primetime cartoons to go high definition. The first HD episode of the Simpsons will air toinght on FOX. (Check your local listings.) But not only that, they finally have a new intro segment. They haven’t had a new intro segment since 1989! Congrats to the Simpsons.
Anoop Desai, is a college geek and “ladies man” from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Anoop Desai is 21 years old and has made it into Hollywood to appear on the American Idol stage infront of America. I didn’t know about this guy until my girlfriend linked me the above video. When he walkd in, just seemed like any other geek. Flip-Flops, nerdy walk, nerdy face. But when he started to sing, I was impressed. That guy’s vocal skills is OVER 9000! The funny part of this video is how Simon looks at him as a type of “Bill Gates.” In this day in age, being like “Bill Gates” means your a rich nerd. And Ladies, nowadays, like that. Maybe its the money part. (/shrug) GL and HF Anoop-Dog. I hope you win!

Duck Studios gave Cox a better cartoon character to be represented by. That “Max” dude was cool, but he wasn’t cool enough. Duck Studios helped Cox replace Max with a bunch of cute “Digis.” With their expression filled eyes, cute little walk, and the drive to get you information via technology when you need it. How can Max compete?

It was a good switch by Cox and a VERY creative campaign idea by Duck Studios. To tell you the truth, when I asked Andrew of ArtOfTheMonkey.com to make our PixelatedGeek, I told him to use the Digis as reference. To see one more cute spot of the Digis, click the “Read Full Article” link below.
You’ve seen Vince on those ShamWoW commercials and instantly fell in love with his enthusiasm. Now hes back selling something else. With his energy, confidence and awesome one liners, why aren’t more companies hiring this talent? Also, props to the video editor for leaving in this quote:
Check out the above video or hit it up on YouTube for the HD version. It looks pretty awesome with absolutely massive (read: Optimus Prime looks like a little toy next to it) Decepticons. What do you, our loyal readers, think about the next Transformers movie? Awesome or fail?
