Happy Birthday, Pee-Wee Herman!
Today is Pee-We Herman a.k.a. Paul Reubens’ birthday. Up top is my kindergarten picture taken nearly 25 years ago where we were allowed to bring out favorite toy. Like a true G, I rolled into school with my pull-string action talking Pee-Herman doll.
As a kid, Pee-Wee’s playhouse was a magical time for me. I had a pretty rough childhood - far from what you’d refer to as normal - so every precious moment spent with Pee-Wee and the gang was a moment of happiness and assured me that growing up didn’t mean you couldn’t stay a kid at heart forever.
Thanks, Pee-Wee. Happy 61st.

QUITE POSSIBLY THE GREATEST PICTURE EVER TAKEN OF SATORU IWATA
It was announced earlier this week that Nintendo Global President Satoru Iwata would gain the additional title of CEO of Nintendo of America to fill the role that was left behind by Tatsumi Kimishima who was promoted to Nintendo Co., Ltd. Managing Director.
The future of the company certainly looks… unpredictable, to say the least. Wii U sales have been severely lackluster thanks to a massive lack of worth caring about, and even 3DS sales have slowed down, but some could argue that it’s probably because just about everyone who plays games already owns one by now (but that’s almost definitely not the case).
And so begins a new chapter for the company. Charting a course for the unclear voyage ahead. With E3 just around the corner, Sony’s PS4 and the probable announcement of a new system from Microsoft will definitely give Nintendo and its president more than a few things to think about.
Much like the Marios and Donkey Kongs and Links and all the hundreds of Pokémon, Iwata is seen mostly by gamers as just another cutesy character in Nintendo’s brand mythos. But then there’s that picture of him sitting on a small white couch. The room, the luggage, the contemplative expression on his face - it’s like something out of a men’s lifestyle magazine. This isn’t the same adorable Japanese man we normally see on stage at press conferences or wearing Luigi hats in Nintendo Direct videos.
This picture shows a different side to the face of Nintendo - a Satoru Iwata rarely seen, and it’s a safe bet that this is probably one of the closest glimpses we’ll get at the real Iwata. Not the salesman on stage giving PR pitches to appease investors, not the precious little Nintendo Direct host reeling in consumers and fans, but the savvy businessman who has kept the company strong since he worked his way up from HAL Laboratory programmer in the 80’s earned the title of President in 2002, making him the first president not related by blood or by marriage to the Yamauchi family who originally founded the company all the way back in 1889.
When you think about all you can accomplish in a lifetime, you start to wonder what kind of legacy you’ll be able to leave behind - how long your footprints will be embedded in history before being washed away by the tides of time. Just by looking at the picture above, it’s clear that Satoru Iwata's legacy has just begun.

The New Trailer For That ‘Carrie’ Remake Pretty Much Gives Away The Whole Movie
This theatrical trailer for the new Carrie flick starring Chloe Grace Moretz is basically a CliffsNotes version of the actual movie itself. Spoiler alert: her mom is crazy over-protective, mean kids pour blood on her, supernatural shit happens.
Damn. I remember watching Siskel and Ebert when I was like 5. I’d play this game where I’d try and guess what they’d give a movie before they started their review. I think it’s a big part of how I view movies as an adult. I didn’t always agree with all of his thoughts about particular movies or video games as art, the dude was one hell of a writer and paved the way for reviewers and critics of all mediums.
Ebert, 70, who reviewed movies for the Chicago Sun-Times for 46 years and on TV for 31 years, and who was without question the nation’s most prominent and influential film critic, died Thursday in Chicago. He had been in poor health over the past decade, battling cancers of the thyroid and salivary gland.
He lost part of his lower jaw in 2006, and with it the ability to speak or eat, a calamity that would have driven other men from the public eye. But Ebert refused to hide, instead forging what became a new chapter in his career, an extraordinary chronicle of his devastating illness that won him a new generation of admirers. “No point in denying it,” he wrote, analyzing his medical struggles with characteristic courage, candor and wit, a view that was never tinged with bitterness or self-pity.
Always technically savvy — he was an early investor in Google — Ebert let the Internet be his voice. His rogerebert.com had millions of fans, and he received a special achievement award as the 2010 “Person of the Year” from the Webby Awards, which noted that “his online journal has raised the bar for the level of poignancy, thoughtfulness and critique one can achieve on the Web.” His Twitter feeds had 827,000 followers.
Ebert was both widely popular and professionally respected. He not only won a Pulitzer Prize — the first film critic to do so — but his name was added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2005, among the movie stars he wrote about so well for so long. His reviews were syndicated in hundreds of newspapers worldwide.

Megan Fox Cast As April O’Neil in Ninja Turtles Reboot
Michael “McSplodeypants” formally welcomed The Fox to the TMNT family on his official website and Variety confirmed that the role will in fact be the Turtles’ buxom journalist friend that every elementary school boy had a crush on in the 90’s.
Say what you will about FoxyFox and her acting skills, but I’m so down for this. And there BETTER be a scene where she’s tied all freaky bondage-y in that fresh yellow jumpsuit. I’m just hoping on to some thread of hope that her T&A won’t be the only redeeming quality to this film..
Oh yeah, and the turtles won’t be dudes in rubber suits, it’ll be all mo-capped. BOO!!!!!!!
