I Lost My Life Savings to Get a Giant Banana with Dreadlocks

There is so much about this "news" story that is just absolutely hysterical.  Enjoy!

What if It's A Small World featured the Children of the Damned?

This is quite possibly the scariest thing you may ever see. It's a nightmarish, copyright-infringing, Chinese amusement park knock-off It's A Small World ride. From the horribly dark, dimly-lit rooms, to the creepy, other-worldly version of the song, to the fact that the zombie-esque dolls don't move yet all look ready to jump into your boat and murder you, this ride-through is likely to affect you in deep and scarring ways. And the scariest part? THIS IS A REAL THING!

My All-Time Favorite Video Game Music

Presented not in order of preference, but in (roughly) chronological order. I think it's interesting to hear how much the music evolves with each video game console generation (each generation noted in this post with a different color border).

Bubbleman - Mega Man 2

The Moon - DuckTales

Cossack Stage 1-2 - Mega Man 4

Opening - Sim City

Life in the Mines - Donkey Kong Country

Dire, Dire Docks - Super Mario 64

Requiem for the Gods - Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Dream of the Shore Near Another World - Chrono Cross

Gusty Garden Galaxy - Super Mario Galaxy

Red Carpet - World of Goo

Still Alive - Portal

Who you gonna call... in 1954?

An awesome fan-made trailer depicting what Ghostbusters could have looked like had it been made in 1954:

I think Dean Martin is perhaps a little too "cool" to play Ray, but Bob Hope is a good Venkman and Jerry Lewis as Louis "Keymaster" Tully is sheer genius.

The Top 10 Dirtiest-Sounding Mega Man Villain Names

In honor of the outstanding new Mega Man 9, I've decided to take a look back at the series... to find the Top Ten Dirtiest-Sounding Mega Man Villain Names of all time!

For the uninitiated, Mega Man is a robot who, in every game, must set out and defeat 8 different "robot masters" and acquire their unique weapons in order to defeat the evil Dr. Wily and his other robotic creations. These robot masters always had some type of "theme" associated with them, so Ice Man's stage would feature cold things, Fire Man's stage would have lava, etc. All of the robot masters had simplistic names like these: " _____" followed by "Man." Once the obvious choices were used up, the creators of later Mega Man games started to come up with some rather odd choices, such as Dust Man, Charge Man, Tomahawk Man and Cloud Man. Inevitably, some of these names end up sounding pretty dirty when taken out of context. So, to honor a fantastic new addition to a line of wonderful video games, I present now The Top Ten Dirtiest-Sounding Mega Man Villain Names to-date (and see if you can guess each robot master's "theme"):

#10 - Flame Man (Mega Man 6)
#9 - Quick Man (Mega Man 2)
#8 - Plug Man (Mega Man 9)
#7 - Flash Man (Mega Man 2)
#6 - Snake Man (Mega Man 3)
#5 - Drill Man (Mega Man 4)
#4 - Burst Man (Mega Man 7)
#3 - Wood Man (Mega Man 2)
#2 - Splash Woman (Mega Man 9)

And the dirtiest-sounding Mega Man Villain Name of the entire series so far:

#1 - Hard Man (Mega Man 3)

Thank you! Good night, everybody!
