"My mother tries to guess the names of Smash Bros. characters."
"The Cube"—a hollowed-out block of brioche stuffed with French fries or mac 'n cheese—started off as an inside joke, a riff off the mystery boxes in Super Mario Bros. that reward players with medals or mushrooms, super leaves or fire flowers.
"We were, like, let's just have fun with this—let's stuff it with fries. Then we started getting crazy." [source]
Hammer Bros. jump pretty high for dudes carrying a bunch of hammers.

I like the idea of re-scoring a film, but maybe not one with an iconic soundtrack. The challenge is the draw, though.

I dare say this video is better than Boyhood.
What should I watch tonight:
Indie Game: The Movie, Video Games: The Movie, or Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie?
I've been thinking a lot about friendships tailing off and, heh, how to adapt that into a television series.
The protagonist is a bloke in his late 30s or early 40s. In each episode, something happens in his life that reminds him of a friend he once had, and the bulk of every episode is a flashback story. It's friendship presented through a nostalgic prism.
Idea: A team must infiltrate the mind of a blind man to extract information, navigating a world created by someone without a visual frame of reference.
Why isn't this a television show?
Idea: Stage a music festival in an abandoned shopping mall. It's like a bunch of music venues in one – an enclosed SXSW. Vacant department stores are the main stages and stand-alone stores side stages.
What if you were the only person in Las Vegas?
Oculus Rift Software Idea: Wander around a deserted Las Vegas Strip – not a post-apocalyptic Vegas, but Vegas as is in 2014.
Did you know that TLC aired a special last fall about a realtor for nudists in Florida and that it's now a series?
Buying Naked premieres June 28, not to be confused with Dating Naked, which premieres July 17 on VH1.
Dating Naked is just that.
Still no Nudie Bar Rescue…

"Dress to go to a punk rock concert circa 2003."
3½. Pretend that Ben Weasel hasn't publicly punched a woman in the face
What is the logic behind this combination? Saturday Night Live alums who were available?
I feel like Dana Carvey should be replaced with Norm Macdonald, or Dennis Miller with someone gentler, like Tim Meadows.
Would you rather see Victoria Jackson, Dennis Miller, and Rob Schneider in one night, or Adam Sandler in Africa?
Goat Simulator is a video game in which the player controls a goat. There does not appear to be any kind of storyline or plot. The player is free to explore the game's world as a goat, destroying things in the environment, running, jumping, and licking.
"Goat Simulator is like an old school skating game, except instead of being a skater, you're a goat, and instead of doing tricks, you wreck stuff," explained the game's creators. [source]
Oh, and it features a goat Iron Throne.
Sitting on the Infernal Throne turns the goat into King of the Goats and gives him the ability to "summon peasants" which makes goats rain from the skies.
What other big name features can we expect on your upcoming album besides Wiz Khalifa?
I've spoken already with Juvenile. I'm in talks right now with DMX and MGK. I spoke a little bit with E-40. I already got John Cena on two tracks.
"Untitled Billy Corgan Wrestling Project"
Smashing Pumpkins lead singer Billy Corgan pulls back the curtains on the pro-wrestling world as he takes over creative direction for the independent wrestling company Resistance Pro.
WWE pulls back the curtains.
What a year it could've been for Earl – boxing George Zimmerman, opening for a reunited Midtown…
Dude legally changed his name from Lion King Conaway to simply Lion King.
Eastern Michigan coach, convert him into a defensive back for the possibility of Megatron vs. Lion King.
Of course it's an Oregon fan.
At least with "no homo," the preceding comment is generally affectionate or innocuous.
