If you think that it’s too late to get into the podcast game at this juncture because “everybody has one now,” just remember that two unknowns from New Zealand only started their podcast a year ago. Since then, it’s received over 650,000 downloads, and all they had was The Worst Idea Of All Time. (Surely you could do better with even the second-worst idea of all time.) Tim Batt and Guy Montgomery met in 2013 on the set of a New Zealand public access TV show where Montgomery would interview Batt as he improvised reviews of toilets he had used that week. The two got along well, but that friendship grew exponentially in 2014 after they decided to embark on a journey nobody asked for: Watching Grown Ups 2 every week for a year and recording a podcast of their weekly viewing. Advertisement For their 52nd and final viewing of Grown Ups 2, fans of the show crowdfunded Batt and Montgomery’s trip to Los Angeles, California, where a packed house had perhaps the … [Read more...] about The Worst Idea Of All Time

The best things automakers put their badges on are their cars. But they also slap that brand on just about anything else you're dumb enough to buy. If you want to look a tool and wear a bunch of clothing that says "BMW" and "M-Sport" all over it, the accounting department in Munich is happy to oblige. Assuming you're a more serious enthusiast, however, you're likely not terribly interested in anything but their most essential and understated products. Advertisement That doesn't mean, however, that they're not throwing a bunch of crap out there. Take this Aston Martin-branded Andrioid, for example. It's a not terribly stylish phone running specs that might have been impressive 2 years ago. But it's got gold inlays, and an Aston Martin logo!!! That'll be $1,300, please.

Fantastic, even. Variety reports that the critically acclaimed dramatization of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster is IMDb’s top-rated television series of all time.

According to Variety, “For now, that puts the critically acclaimed “Chernobyl” ahead of AMC’s “Breaking Bad” (9.5), BBC’s “Planet Earth II” (9.5), HBO’s “Band of Brothers” (9.5), the original “Planet Earth” (9.4), HBO’s “Game of Thrones” (9.3) and HBO’s “The Wire” (9.3).” Considering the fact that IMDb users rank Rick and Morty above The Sopranos, it’s worth noting that IMDb isn’t the ultimate … [Read more...] about The Only Thing Everyone Can Agree on Is That
This is a big week in video game releases, and there's no better way to scrape up the cash you need for some of this week's triple-A titles than to trade in or sell older games that you don't play. Here's how you can score some cash for your unwanted or already finished games to spend on new ones. Pick your poison and there's a game launch this fall aimed right at you. Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 for the military shooter crowd, Skyrim for the swords and sorcery lovers, and Uncharted 3 for the cinematic adventure game fanatics.
