Goat Simulator [goht-sim-yoo-lehyt-er]
1. Video game. A third-person perspective simulator game, from Coffee Stain Studios, where the player controls a goat. Originally created as part of a "game jam", without any intent of full released, public demand led to a publicly released copy that is functional yet rife with the glitches and bugs that make the open-world destruction game more amusing than it has any right...to be.
EX. Buy Goat Simulator on their website or on Steam. This is no an advertisement. This is a recommendation posed in the form of a demand.

1. League of Legends. A holiday or event in the League of Legends community commemorating the anniversary of the tragic death of Urf, the Manatee on April 1st 2010.
EX. Urf was taken too soon at the claws of Warwick and the LoL community has held Urf Day every April 1st since in remembrance of the tragedy. Every year they've commemorated his demise in many different ways-- from new Urf-themed skins to special contests to charity for manatee conservation to a Cho'Gath themed game-- and this year was no different. Well, actually, this year was really different because this year we got...
ULTRA RAPID FIRE (MODE) [ul-chra-rap-id-fahyr]
1. League of Legends. A limited time game mode released as part of the Urf Day celebration, paraded comically as "the future of League of Legends", the game mode takes place on Summoner's Rift and is extremely imbalanced with Ryze and Kassadin being removed, other champions being buffed or nerfed, and the following buff being ever-present:
(Editior's Note: The mode is a ton of fun, favoring champions usually limited by their mana pool and cooldowns, EX. Sona, Soraka, Skarner, etc. I like it, but unless you pick broke champions you will most likely not have a lot of fun. I don't think it is better than normal Summoner's Rift. But it is a refreshing break from the normal game.)
And if you lose, you get a special end-screen.

First, we were blessed with the first installment of an abridged series that I have been waiting to see come to fruition since I saw some shorts on youtube performed by the same voice actors.
Kill La Kill is probably the biggest anime in the last year, after Attack on Titan, and is certainly one of the most visually interesting anime I can think of.
The first episode of the abridged series has some good laughs and I hope they produce some more because, like most abridged series, these things get better over time.
And the funniest Bane parody I've seen in a while stole the collective heart of the internet thanks to its use of obese felines, Bane cat costumes, and lots of quotes from The Dark Knight Rises. Bane is simultaneously ridiculous and awesome at the same time. I think it is safe to say that Bane is officially far more quotable than Heath Ledger's Joker.
There. I said it.
I apologize for nothing. Seriously. This was funny.
Same time, same place, every week. Have a good one, folks.

ATTACK OF THE CLONES IS BESTER MOVIE!
HELLO BOYS! I'M BACK! [and I lurnt editing!]
1. I may still be an o-possum.
It was mah first Spring. Well, first Spring I remember on account of mah selective memory disorder. Anwho, it was Spring and the pungent stench of amore hung in the air like the horsie flies that buzz around Meemaw's dumpster. And I was in love with a girl...
But anywho, you may be asking, who is pro-tagonist? He is a mix between James Bond, Iron Man, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. He is a total badass super hero who fights samurai and blows up rocks and fights more samurai! He looks real cool, prolly would grow a bitchin' mullet (but his helmet won't allow it) and is probably like what would happen if Texas Walker Ranger and Batman had a baby! He is the only dude bad enough to save the space president!
You will believe a man can fly!
Jar-Jar Fett is the bestest super hero of all time. Period.
Ben Kenobi is all like, "you're going to space jail after I get mah autograph!" And Jar-Jar Fett is all like, "get off mah back, government! I didn't elect Space Obama!" It is awesome and the Q-Tip people are all like probably just watching with their stupid eyes and heads are splodin' and then Jar-Jar Fett and Bobby Fett got away. And then...um...

Let's start out Monday with Star Bomb's newly announced Rap-Along album! It has Cliffy B and the Angry Video Game Nerd and like a dozen other neat people. Check it out!
Have you seen my feels?
Dedicated to my good friend Gratu, this League of Legends themed Frozen parody is a fun little spin on the lesser of the two Frozen songs have that have now been covered and satirized and remixed in as many different iterations as is humanly possible. Still... it is cute. and Annie is one of Gratu's favorite champs and it is his birthday. Enjoy.
In a stirring show of respect for Harold Ramis, who passed away last week, Jon and Al Kaplan have produced a eulogy dedicated to one of most beloved characters, Egon from The Ghost Busters franchise. Harold Ramis was an integral performer and creative force in the world of comedy for decades, from being a screenwriter on National Lampoon's Animal House to Caddyshack to Groundhog's Day and so much more!
He will be missed.
