Gaming/Video :The Gmod Idiot Box: Episode 10

I know what your thinking... "Kevin... more gamer parody/satire?" Damn straight! This youtuber, DasBoSchitt, is a veteran in the Garry's Mod machinima videos. For almost three years, his main series "The Gmod Idiot Box" has been a standard in Garry's Mod machinima. For the people who aren't gamers or as big as gamers as I am. Garry's Mod is a modification of gaming company Valve's game engine "Source Engine." With this mod, it gave gamers control of ragdolls of characters from their favorite Valve titles. Equipped with tools like lighting, rockets, movie affects, and cameras made it a game for machinima makers. The Gmod Idiot Box is a pioneer in the style he has created and many admire and strive to make their videos like DasBoSchitt.

Video/Movie Clip: Semi Pro - Jive Turkey

This is for the people that haven't seen the 2007 movie Semi Pro. Though some hate it, I pretty much love whatever Will Farrell is in. This movie is about a 1970's basketball team that needs to pick their game up to merge into the NBA. The film has that 70's feel and age to it which once you put Will Farrell in it, it gets hilarious. This scene is that type of Will Farrell outrages comedy where Will Arnett's character takes too much offense to the term "Jive Turkey."  I would love if Farrell and Arnett were in another movie together.

Video/Gaming: Gamer Poop: Oblivion #3

This dirty Oblivion parody by Machinima director mans1ay3r is absolutely hilarious. For those of you that are fans of the smash hit The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and have a dirty sense of humor will find this hilarious. Using the PC processing power and fan made mods, he can bend these characters to his will. Stuttering their words to make them say almost anything. I've been watching these a lot hyping myself for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. For those of you that have not played Oblvion, really? Yeah it is a four year old game but its gameplay is unmatched in the RPG genre (in my opinion). Just to wrap things up, Oblvion is baller, mans1ay3r is hilarious, and Skyrim is going to be amazing.

Viral Video: This Guy Deserves a Medal for being a Badass!

Extreme crashing followed by a ridiculously smooth recovery. Notice that as he slides out just in time so the truck doesn't crush him, he is still holding and talking on the phone when he stands up. This guy is a legend. Not for being a good driver but for being one of the smoothest motherf**kers ever. Cheers to this legend!

(late)Movie Saturdays!:The Thing

To those of you who have never heard about it, The Thing is a sci-fi horror flick about a group of American Researchers in Antartica that take in a Huskie that they save from a trigger happy norweigen and after one night of taking the dog in they experience something out of theyre worst nightmare. It turns out that aliens do exist and one has crash landed on earth thousands of years ago only to be frozen and preserved in the ice lands of Antartica. The americans discover about the alien after the dog they save kills most of the other dogs in the kennel at there base and get a glimpse of the horrific monster that once resemble a perfectly fine dog. They later find out that the creature was discovered by another group of Norweigen scientist and to have theyre base burned down and the entire crew were dead by the alien creature(except for the two killed in the very beginning) and they rush back to inform the others. Throughout the movie its a guessing game on who is the thing and when it will stirke. Theyres betrayal, mistrust, breakdowns and grusome deaths. Besides having abit of a cheesy dialouge and special effects its none the less a great movie to watch and itll make your stomach churn on some parts. Ive seen it many times and im still disturbed by the gruesome scenes and images of this film. Oh and theyre making a remake of this film and im looking forward to it and ill make sure to write a review on it too.

News: Steve Jobs Dead at age 56. Lost Video Included

Today October 5th, 2011 the world lost a revolutionary mind and from what I've heard an amazing human being. Steve Jobs born February 4th, 1955, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2004. Though he beat the cancer, five years later in 2009, he received a liver transplant. Between those five years Jobs took a hefty amount of time to tend to his health but would return to create things like the iPhone. In August of this year (2011), Steve Jobs resigned as CEO from Apple leaving Tim Cook as his successor. Over the years many people have speculated about Jobs'  health but no one suspected he would leave us this year. Steve Jobs is known best for starting up Apple along with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne. In the beginning, they would make computers, most notably the Macintosh. Apple's Macintosh was and still is the top competitor to the major computer company Microsoft. In 2001, Jobs was part in the creation of the iPod. The iPod would be a major hit selling millions and allowing for variations that would give it a smaller size, bigger space, touch screen, and a camera. Along with the advances to the portable music industry, Jobs would revolutionize the phone industry with the iPhone. The iPhone would be a top notch phone that would set a standard for smartphones all across the world. Then again would come out with something some would call an over-sized iPod Touch, the iPad. Once again paving the way for tablets that could do more than read books. Though I am not a fan of Macs, Steve Jobs has truly revolutionized the technology business and affect millions of people. Rest In Peace Steve Jobs.

Video Game/Review: Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Awhile ago, I walked into gamestop looking for a game to pass the time. I walked around the selection and noticed that Deus Ex had a price drop and having heard from my friend that its a game close to Metal Gear, Mass Effect, and Fallout 3 had a kid together that is what this would be. They were completely right. This game is simply amazing and so addicting. In the game, you play as head of security Adam Jenson in one of the most powerful human augmentation corporations, Sarif Industries. In the beginning you have to fend off some mercenarys that attack and kill lab staff in the buildings laboratory an you start off as a regular human being with no augmentations or even a HUD(heads up display). As you continue, something really serious happens to Adam and you end up having to go through intensive surgery and wake up better than new and fully augmented. Augments are futuristic enhancements that alter the body to become better than normal humans. The story is very intense and so is the gameplay. You can decide to play stealthy and safe or aggressive and violent. Though you can do a combination of any of the options. It was a real challenge and what you decide during the interactive dialouges decides the outcome of your mission, either it will aid you and open a shortcut or shut you out and make it difficult to reach your goal. There are 4 different endings all of which really open your mind and cause you to think about our current world. I love this game and its great! I highly recommend this game!

Music/Bio: Fitz and The Tantrums

Fitz and The Tantrums is a funk indie-pop soul band with a retro band style started in 2008. Started by a heart-broken Micheal Fitzgerald who got a call from his ex-girlfriend saying her neighbor had an old Conn Organ to sell for 50 dollars. That night he had an electric organ and a hit on his hands. He wrote "Breakin' the Chains of Love" that night and through some phone calls he put together a group of amazing artist. Fitz himself on lead vocals, the lovely Noelle Scaggs on back up vocals and tambourine, James King on saxophone and flute, Joseph Karnes on bass, Jeremy Ruzumna on keyboards, and John Wicks on the drums. All of these artist and instruments made an amazing funky soul/pop band that would be performing large venues within three years. The band has released two EP's (Santa Stole My Lady & Songs for a Breakup Volume 1) and an album called Pickin' Up the Pieces. The group has performed on many late-night talk shows like Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, Jay Leno, and George Lopez. They also have performed on radio stations and many festivals. The band brings an energetic and explosive performance each and every time they perform, often making the crowd join in on the music. Named the "Hardest-Working Band" of 2011 by Vogue Daily and I am inclined to agree. I and two friends had the chance to see them live in San Francisco at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival at Golden Gate Park. THEY ROCKED. Though there were a lot of high/drunk hippies around, it didn't stop Fitz and The Tantrums from blowing the lid off San Francisco. I wish my friends and I had gotten there earlier to get a better spot because we were not in the closest place(see pics below). We had an amazing time watching the explosive performance that the band brought and we hope to see them in the Bay Area again soon.!/fitzandtantrums

Movie Saturdays! :Mystery Team Review

The Mystery Team is a 2009 movie released by YouTube comedy group derrickscomedy. During the early years of YouTube, derrickscomedy was one of the most watched channels throughout the website. The movie was written by Donald Glover, DC Pierson, Dominic Dierkes, Dan Eckman (also directed), and Meggie McFadden. The movie cast features some actors/actresses Donald met while writing for 30 Rock. The three main characters are played by the main members of the group, Donald, DC, and Dominic. The film, premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, is about three senior-year students that have yet to grow up. The story follows the "Mystery Team", a group started as young children solving childish crimes like taking two milks at lunch time or punching a dog in the face. Now Jason(Donald Glover), Duncan(DC Pierson), and Charlie(Dominic Dierkes) are 18 and about to graduate high school but lack an adult mindset. The group is shown in their high school setting as being social pariahs. Their cases have been childish up until the day a girl shows up and asks them to solve her parents murders. Here is where the romantic interest for Jason comes in. Kelly(Aubrey Plaza) is the sister of the little girl and is skeptical about the Mystery Teams detective skills. Out to prove they are real detectives, the Mystery Team uses Scooby-Doo like detective techniques to solve the double homicide. The drama within the murder and within the team was great. Jason realizes he is going nowhere with his life when his friends talk about college while he gets left behind. This movie throws childish teens into an extremely dark and bleak situation. The movie is ridiculous, outrageous, hilarious, dark and dramatic It goes from a strip club to a lumber yard to a chase with a drug dealer. Directed greatly by Dan Eckman and the music composed by Donald Glover makes an amazing combination that enhances the movie. I highly recommend watching this film which is available on netflix and a variety of websites. The group of derrickscomedy is an amazing comedy team and I hope to see another movie from them in the future.

Meme/Video/Viral/Bio: A Little History on "Rick Roll"

  Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up", released in 1987, became a smash hit of the time. Thought it was a big hit at the time, sometime around 2007, it hit the internet like a storm. People (some called "Trolls"), started misdirecting others to this video. This act was called "RickRolling". At first they would bait them with an exciting title or description and then link them to the song. The URL could be masked by websites so the receiver would have no idea of the impending joke. Many fell victim to once terrible song, the main "rickroll'd" video has over 58million views on YouTube. It remains to be a staple in the meme community.

-On a personal note, in 2008 I got RickRoll'd so many times that it stopped being annoying and I started enjoying the song.

Video Games: Gears of War 3

 Man, I have been waiting for this game for such a long time and I am so happy it is finally here. Gears of War 3 is the final of the Gears of War series where humans on the planet Sera have been fiercely fighting with the Locust(human like dinosaurs) ever since they emerged from underground caves stating the planet is rightfully theirs to conquer and that they will eradicate the human race for polluting it. Now I'm not going spoil the campaign for everyone but I am gonna say that the story is amazing and will have you in awe to the awesome characters and action that occur. As great as it was it had one thing I didn't really like, the campaign seemed short of how a gears game should be. I remember it took me a good action packed hours each day just to beat the first and second Gears of War but Gears 3 felt like it took only a few hours to beat. Yet, the fun doesn't stop there in the campaign, there are a variety of multiplayer game modes. In one of these you can play on Xbox Live with up to 3 other people and run through the entire story in Standard or Arcade mode where its basically a competition on who can rack up the most points from killing the most enemies. There are "mutators" you can use to make the game harder or funner by adding a laughtrack each time you kill an enemy or disabling ammo caches and making the player resort to scavenging fallen enemy weapons, making ammo scarce. The multiplayer is nothing short of f**king great! I love tearing it up in TDM (Team Death Match) or CTL (Capture the Leader) with the classic Gnasher shotgun and newly introduced Retro Lancer. The improved horde mode is highly addicting especially now that you can buy turrets, barriers, sentry guns, and explosive dummies and like campaign, you can turn on "mutators" in private games making the experience even more enjoyable! None the less the campaign was amazingly awesome along with the multiplayer! In the end Gears of War 3 has surpassed expectations and is a definite keeper. See you guys online!! Watch out for the sawed off shotguns and my gnasher. ;)

Meme: The Cyber Police Dun' Goofed

To the left of this text is a picture of the head of the Cyber Police. For those of you that are not familiar with the meme that spawned out of the Jessie Slaughter internet incidents. The tween poked at the internet trolls until they struck back causing Jessie's father to get involved. Here is where multiple memes started in where her father said such things as he "Backtraced" or he contacted the "Cyber Police." So here's to the father of the emotionally unstable girl, thank you for the laughter you have brought to the internet. Rest in Peace.

Viral/Video Games: The Legend Of Zelda Stupidity

Ready to laugh? If you are a fan of the popular video game series, Legend of Zelda, you hated the stupid late-80's cartoon, well at least the fact that it was stupid. The Youtube channel of "TheSw1tcher" took the short-lived series and added comedic value to an otherwise piece of crap. Though the video has a hint of dirty jokes, it pokes fun at the producers attempts at referencing the video game. In my opinion, this video should be a big hit in the meme community. Here's hoping!

Movie: Lion King 3D

Today, I went to spend time with my girlfriend and her family at the theater and we got tickets for The Lion King 3D. What can I say besides that it was the same movie it was when it first released. It was still a heartwarming, laugh ensuing, and sad flick that many still love and remember. There wasn't much to really be surprised by except for the 3D. At first I was questioning was it really worth paying 18 bucks(i didn't pay) just to watch a movie that I had in VHS at home? No, but i don't have a giant widescreen TV or surround sound quality like they do at the theaters, but it still was not worth it. Though, the 3D made it more entertaining, like when Mufasa was dropped from the cliff by Scar. That made the impact harder seeing the depth of the fall or when Zazu was flying through the sky towards Pride Rock, I couldn't help but reach out and try to grasp and squeeze him as it appeared he was coming down from the ceiling and actually whizzing by in the theater. The movie was great none the less. It had its laughs, cries ,and romantic moments. But its not really worth it to pay to watch the movie in theaters when most people have it in VHS or DVD. If you have money to burn or are invited to watch it with friends or family, then it is worth it. It is more of a date flick than anything else. So take a friend or a date that would enjoy watching an old timeless classic.

Viral: THE MINIGUN - FPS Russia Background

Enjoy crazy "Russians" shooting powerful weapons? You may enjoy this. "FPS Russia" (a.k.a Dmitri) may seem like your friendly neighborhood gun-toting maniac Russian, but the face does not match the name. This so called "Dmitri" is actually 24-year old Kyle Myers from Georgia. Kyle first started out on Youtube under the name "FPSKyle", a name derived from the web television personality from Pure Pwnage, FPS Doug. Kyle started his Youtube account in 2006 mainly watching Halo 2 montages. Around this time was a movement in the gaming community called "Gameplay Commentaries." Gameplay commentaries we a success on the huge channel Machinima and on Youtube. Here is when Kyle made his channel into a gaming commentary channel. He was gaining a name in the gaming community. About a year and a half ago, Kyle created a different persona to do comedic commentaries with. Here is when FPSRussia became bigger than FPSKyle. FPSRussia was a huge success, commentating over Call of Duty gameplay in a Russian accent was something never conceived of. Thousands suspected Kyle was the one behind FPSRussia but none could prove it at the time. Kyle saw the reception Russia was getting so he decided to make this separate persona it's own channel. That channel was for all content FPSRussian. Eventually Kyle decided to mix it up a bit and do a combination of gameplay and a video about the certain weapon he is using in the game. He would shoot a certain gun then show Call of Duty gameplay of him using the weapon. Eventually he got rid of the gameplay section and completely switched to him shooting his personal collection and bizarre weapons. He has collaborated with the big Youtube hit Epic Meal Time. Now FPSRussia is one of the Youtube elite with over a million subscribers (16th most subscribed) and with over 250 million views.

Kyle Myers Background - Kyle was raised (probably born too) in Georgia. Out of high school he started selling cars. He moved to Atlanta because of a relationship and worked at a Ford dealership where he learned to do the Russian accent from his boss. Overworked, he moved back to his home town and took some time off and kicked off his Youtube career. Kyle has ompeted in professional shooting competitions which is where he says he "won" his 20,000 dollar Benelli but we all know he is as rich as Scrooge McDuck (inside joke).
