blink-182 To Play At Blizzcon

5 Nov

World of Warcraft and Diablo developer Blizzard Entertainment have announced that pop-punk legends (and my favorite band) blink-182 will be ending popular event Blizzcon this year. The show begins this Friday and ends with the concert the following night.

Blink-182 — or at last co-frontman Mark Hoppus — is no stranger to video games. His Twitter is regularly full of jokes and pictures about Animal Crossing, Pokemon and other 3DS titles.

Blink hasn’t released a new album since 2011’s Neighborhoods, a divisive record that drew influences from other projects, such as the short-lived band +44 and guitarist Tom Delonge’s other band, Angels and Airwaves. The band plans to go back into the studio early next year to record a follow-up, which they have claimed will be an “edgier” record. They’re currently celebrating the ten-year anniversary of the “Untitled” album, a more experimental release featuring hits like “I Miss You” and “Feeling This.”

Blizzcon veteran and comedian Jay Mohr will once again host the event, which was cancelled last year to the dismay of many fans.

Jay Mohr, on the other hand, could probably not host this one and I’d be totally fine with it. He’s pretty awful in everything.

Here’s a music video for After Midnight, one of my favorite songs from Neighborhoods.

‘Catching Fire’ Headed For Gigantic Opening?

3 Nov

Its looking like when ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ is released on November 22nd, all of its competition should prepare to be annihilated.  ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ is projected to open with between $140 million and $150 million. Some even believe the sequel could reach up to $185 million. The latter opening would be more than ‘The Hunger Games’, which opened with $152.5 million (which is still pretty great).

‘Key and Peele’ Is A Huge Success…Sort Of

30 Oct

Following the premiere of the critically lauded sketch-comedy show Key and Peele in early 2012, we’ve encountered a very odd issue that hasn’t been seen in other Comedy Central programs. While the sketches that Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele perform are hits on Youtube — with the “East-West College Bowl” skit at the top of the list — this success has not translated nearly as well to television ratings.

According to TV By The Numbers, last week’s episode of the show was well below other Comedy Central shows such as South Park, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, even though its time slot, sandwiched between South Park and The Daily Show, should keep it at least at the same level of those two programs.

Batman Shows No Sign Of Slowing In Games Or Movies

27 Oct

With the release yesterday of both Batman: Arkham Origins  and Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate for handhelds, it appears that the Batman brand is now more popular than ever before. Both Batman’s games and his movies have had very big ups and downs. Most fans of the Caped Crusader died a little inside when Joel Schumacher took Tim Burton’s film series and destroyed it with an overly campy tone and nippled costumes, and well, this was once a Batman game.

TLC Biopic Is #1 In Adults Eyes But Not Everyone’s

24 Oct

On Monday, October 21st, VH1 premiered their TLC biopic called ‘CrazySexyCool’ which took  in 4,5 million viewers. That’s a great number for the movie because it is now VH1’s highest rated original movie ever and for 2013 it is the most watched original cable movie…for the ADULT DEMOGRAPHIC (which is from 18 – 49). I keep seeing deceiving headlines calling it the number one original cable movie of the year and then mentioning that it’s only number one in the 18 – 49 demographic. It’s all understandable seeing how you have to grab readers attention somehow but either way its a little misleading since it’s not the most watched original cable movie this year of all demographics.
