The Boxset with Harrison’s first six solo albums released September 23rd..
If you’re one of my close friends, you know that pretty much my whole life I have said The Beatles were dogshit. I wouldn’t give them the time of day, and repeatedly said that they are the most overrated band in history (which may still be true).
As I’ve gotten older, my stubbornness has waned somewhat and I began to listen to their music about a year ago. Sure…some of it, what little I’ve actually had time to listen to, is absolutely great. Much of it is catchy, insanely influential, and varied. I particularly liked the album Revolver.
My point is, if you would have seen a George Harrison tribute on one of my sites a few years ago you would have to figure I was losing my mind. And shit, maybe I am, but today I’ve got a wealth of Harrison covers from the last week, including four from Conan O’Brien‘s George Harrison Week and three from last night’s George Fest: A Night to Honour the Music of George Harrison, which took place at LA’s El Rey Theater. It all coincides with last week’s release of a boxset called The Apple Years, which contains the first six albums of Harrison’s solo work and a DVD to boot.
Let’s kick it off with the first guest on O’Brien’s Harrison Week: Beck, covering “Wah-Wah”. To find the rest, including covers from Norah Jones, Harrison’s only son Dhani, Paul Simon, Brandon Flowers, Brian Wilson, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, click on the link below the video.

I’m sure it’ll happen again in the near future…
Bruce Wayne, who grew up to become one helluva detective with the alias “Batman“, has seen his parents die many, many times in the movie world. Vulture‘s Abraham Riesman did the world a favor and put together a supercut showing us this unfortunate incident again, and again, and again in Batmans Parents Dying: The Supercut.
Deaths shown in the video took happened in:
1985: The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians (Cartoon)
1989: Batman (The Tim Burton movie)
2005: Batman Begins
2008 (twice): In Batman: Gotham Knight (Animated Movie) and Batman: The Brave and the Bold (Cartoon)
2011: Batman: Year One (Animated Movie)
2013 (twice): The Dark Knight Returns (Animated Movie) and Batman: Arkham Origins (Video Game)
2014: Gotham (TV Series)
R.I.P Thomas and Martha Wayne
Looks like a big winner…
I just got off work and was planning on going straight to bed, then the absolutely gorgeous, haunting, and sad Ori and the Blind Forest Prologue Trailer caught my eye. If this game turns out half as captivating as it looks, Moon Studios may have a 2D masterpiece on their hands, and if thats the case I hope a lot of people buy it so they can make another game soon (they’ve been working on Ori about four years according to the official website). Being a video game studio isn’t easy these days, meaning they shut down like crazy.
Anyways, enjoy this magnificent trailer, and CLICK ON THE PIC BELOW THE TRAILER TO SEE AN AWESOME GALLERY OF SCREEN CAPS.
Back to La Luna!…
After a week off, I’m going back to Bungie‘s online persistent world fps Destiny. My Warlock character sits at a level 10 and just got done with his first few missions on the moon. It was very cool.
You can watch gameplay and commentary from the beginning (or even broken up into highlights) by CLICKING HERE. In the next week or two we are planning to really work on a new YouTube page too where we’ll post all our gameplay / highlight videos. So if you don’t have the time to watch it live, those are some great ways to see what we’re up to.
Kickoff is scheduled for 9:50pm PST

Shock Jock Howard Stern is up to his old tricks again. Benji Bronk, who works for Stern, interrupted and pranked the much anticipated Roger Goodell press conference screaming about elevators. No doubt in reference to the infamous Ray Rice video.
So don’t let her play you for a fool
She don’t show no pity baby, she don’t make no rules
35 years and one month ago today (thats 1979 fuckheads) Led Zeppelin released their eighth studio album, In Through the Out Door. It would stay on top of the charts for seven weeks. It would also prove to be the last album of new material as demon drummer John Bonham died a little over a year later, effectively ending the band. T
A little fact for ya: “Fool in the Rain” (probably the album’s best known song) and “South Bound Suarez” were the only two OG Zeppelin songs that guitarist Jimmy Page had no part in writing.

Now, that’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time. A long time…
I was about to get ready for some more Destiny action, but then I watched this and knew I had to post it. Yes, its Jimmy Kimmel’s Lie Witness News – New York Fashion Week 2014.
New York Fashion Week is obviously a big fuckin’ deal, and the unfortunate victims in the video below got what they deserved…for sure. But I do feel for these fashion aficionados. They have an extreme peer pressure to know every fashion designer who has ever sewn an ill-fitting shirt.
Even it that ill-fitting shirt is by the great Teddy Ruxpin.
