Ubisoft is currently developing a yet to be titled game using the likeness of Michael Jackson and of course his music. The game will be available using Microsoft’s Kinect for the Xbox 360, Sony’s Move for the PS3, and Nintendo’s Wii as well as the handheld PSP and DS devices. They say for the Kinect/Xbox 360 version, the game will not feature avatars to represent the player, but the actual players themselves on-screen.
I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to play this thing. I’ll be kicking and moon-walking all over my living room. I’m sure my roommates will get tired of hearing “Bille Jean” or “Beat It” but damn them…MJ can’t be denied.
The sign reads “check this out” and lists the price at $5.99 for the prophylactics, whereas the diapers are around $12 per package. I’ll bet the average guy is also only buying a few packs of condoms a month but the newborn’s parents are probably going through a whole heap of Huggies. If only this display had been on the boxed wine aisle…maybe that would have been a better placement.
I love the Lord of the Rings and I love Gandalf. I also love everything J.R.R. Tolkien and and can’t wait for The Hobbit movie to be released…even if it is sans Guillermo Del Toro. The Hobbit is actually my favorite of the whole series and I’m so pumped that Peter Jackson is spearheading the multi-movie project.
I digress though, the reason I’m posting is to tell you that Ian McKellin is on Twitter (@ianmckellen118) and he actually posts messages about the progress of the movies. The most recent being “The films will get made. I suspect we’ll start shooting at end of this year” , “The films will get made. I suspect we’ll start shooting at end of this year.” and “Guillermo Del Toro departs The Hobbit.” How cool is that?
He also writes about his play “Waiting For Godot” and has a website that showcases his own writing. What a cool man Sir Ian McKellen is. Check him out, follow him and thank me later.
I don’t know what it is about this video but I really enjoy it. This is Houston to the International Space Station sent as a wake-up call. It gives you a nice view of the station and the shuttle and the lovely tune of “Macho Man” by the Village People. What a good way to wake up.
Well at least Jack had the decency to leave a note and the honesty to mention his true actions. Those darned Aussies with their frankness. I’d be pretty hard heated if not only did I come back to wrecked car but also to this piece of paper. Thanks a lot Jack…you’re an asshole! (oh and you spell like one too).
During World War II the servicemen suffered quite a bit from the dangers of unprotected sex. In response the U.S. government commissioned this wonderfully horrific set of posters. Meant to scare the soldiers straight with such taglines as “Men who know…say no to prostitutes” and “A minute with Venus. A year with Mercury!”
Brilliant, pure genius. I know these “propaganda” posters would make be think twice before bunking up with the local floozie. I think the current government should re-release a campaign like this. How fun would that be to see these littering the walls of the subway. In my opinion advertising and messages have become more politically correct without good reason. If a message communicates then it communicates…you might as well be upfront about it. Either way…I find these to be terrifying and hilarious at the same time.
