I play video games. A lot. More often than a grown man should, I'll admit. I still have nagging doubt and self-loathing instilled in me by my parents for wasting time playing video games, but that's me. The point is I play a lot of stuff and I spend more time than I'll admit reading about upcoming releases and the like. So naturally, when the new Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 trailer was released, I was interested to see what was featured:
In case you're not as hip to the cutting edge of pop culture like us deal-a-day website copywriters, you might not have heard that Tupac Shakur, one of the most famous rappers of all time, made his grand return to the stage at last weekend's Coachella festival. It was his first appearance since 1996.
Because that's when he died.
But that didn't stop someone from constructing a pretty-realistic-looking hologram and trotting it out on the stage, marionette style, to rap alongside Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. Here's the video, but in case you live under a rock, any video with Tupac, Dre, and/or Snoop is certainly NSFW:
You're a "zombie enthusiast," which is shorthand for "weirdo shut-in sitting on the computer and just hoping and praying for an opportunity to run around shooting people in the face." And every zombie enthusiast has a plan, be it to bug out to the desolate countryside or forest (not a bad plan if you're tough enough to live off the land), escape via boat or plane to some remote and uninfected island (bold, but very risky), or hole up in your fallout shelter with plans to raid the nearby Wal-Mart/gun shop/REI and stock up for the end of civilization (your corpse will be shambling the streets within an hour). That's why you need to prepare with Map of the Dead.
I assume the pink is indicating blood running through the streets.
If you follow our Facebook page you might have noticed that last week, our Seattle office had themselves a chili cook-off! Before you panic at the idea of chili from the Pacific Northwest, please remember: our team has a mix of Texans and St. Louisians in the mix. And the chilis came out juuuust fine.
If you want a little more information or you refuse to use Facebook, meet us after the jump and we'll recap the day! With photos!
We here at Woot like to consider ourselves at the cutting edge of mocking new extreme sports, which is why we were so happy to see the latest craze sweeping the nation: Tazer Ball! Take two teams of four dudes, add a giant novelty soccer ball, throw in eight tasers, and stand way the hell back:
Relax, I'm not here to actually DEFEND cyber-bullying; it's everyone's favorite cause du jour. But I am wondering where the line is between "bullying" and "simply issuing a warning" since I heard about Synyster Ink Tattoo...
And no, I'm not gonna post photos of his tattoos because they're his and I don't have permission. Also, they're gross.
One of the hallmarks of humanity is our predilection for philosophical thought: wondering just what we are, why we're here, and what's going to happen next is one of the biggest markers that separates us from simpler animals. And despite the massive pile of predictions for the future that have all missed the mark entirely, every once in awhile one is right or close enough to right that we go ahead and count it; and the fact is, it's just fun to prognosticate. And it's in that spirit that the New York Times is asking readers to compile a future timeline of human achievements and world events, starting next year...
Relationships take work. Hard work. Lots of hard, tedious, soul-searching work. For all the talk of "love at first sight," it's not that easy. You have to learn to live with someone, learn to accept their weird idiosyncrasies, overcome their deep-rooted emotional baggage, and convince yourself that they're not secretly disgusted with you and doing this whole thing just as a joke that's being fed to a website somewhere like some kind of Truman Show from hell. At least that's my experience. Oh, and spying. Healthy, trusting relationships take lots and lots of spying. That's why you need Find His Porn...
So you fancy yourself a movie buff. You can recite memorable lines, you know the credits to your favorite flicks better than an IMDB listing, and you even spend more time than you'd like to admit recreating famous movie scenes using various action figures around your house. You still might not have what it takes to win at Famous Objects from Classic Movies.
