Magic Card of the Week: Vengevine

December 6, 2010 Magic No Comments

This week’s Magic Card of the week is Vengevine, a powerful elemental from the Rise of the Eldrazi set.

Four mana gets you a 4/3 hasted creature. Never mind how rare it is to find a green card with Haste, this one has a mad-on for delivering some hate. Cast two creature spells in a single turn, and you can bring this beat-machine back from the dead for the low low cost of “free,” returning to continue his relentless assault on the puny bitches your pussy opponent is probably using.

Question of the Week: Which is the Best Harry Potter Movie?

December 3, 2010 Question 3 Comments

With the recent release of the The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and its record breaking box office sales, it seems pretty clear to me which episode of furious wand-waving is the superior use of my time. But having not seen the newest installment of the series yet myself, I have to wonder: Is it really going to be better than Half-Blood Prince? Or did they just take liberties with the Deathly Hallows book, add a metric crap-ton of special effects and call it the End-All Super Awesome?

So all of you out there, tell me which movie you liked best. And while you’re at it, which book you liked best too, especially if the answer is different. Which is the Best Harry Potter Movie?

Celebrity Cyber-Suicide

December 3, 2010 News No Comments

A host of celebrities have rallied behind the leadership of Alicia Keys and flung their digital lives into a digital incinerator in support of HIV/AIDS awareness and aid.

Involved in this scheme are big deals like Usher, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Ryan Seacrest, Justin Timberlake, and of course Alicia Keys herself. They’ve all pledged their digital lives to the cause, so they’ve abandoned Facebook and Twitter until $1,000,000 has been raised towards the relief of the HIV afflicted in Africa and India to buy their lives back.

An admirable idea for a charity drive in an age where a growing number of people out there can’t go without checking their Facebook every 12 minutes. Now the world just needs to decide if they really want some of them back. Do we need to know when Ryan Seacrest is being a douche or when Usher is Makin’ Love in this Club?

Banelings… Whoa

December 2, 2010 News No Comments

Another ridiculous nerdy parody video surfaced on the internet about a week ago, this one loaded with StarCraft 2 referenced ammunition. It’s gained over 3,200,000 views on YouTube since release, and is brought to us by a fellow by the name of HuskyStarcraft. Big StarCraft nerd, yeah. But for this video he teams up KurtHugoSchneider, a talented internet film producer and musician whose videos can be viewed here.

This video has done so well so quickly that both parties have agreed to donate all proceeds from ad revenue and iTunes sales to charity, though have yet to decide which charity, but I hear they are open to ideas.

Magic Card of the Week: Thornling

November 29, 2010 Magic No Comments

Hailing from the Conflux edition, Thornling is this week’s Magic Card of the Week.

Thorny here is pretty decent in a scrap, and he’s got the toughness to take a solid beating. But he really sets himself apart when you start giving him access to your mana account. Invest a little in this shapeshifter and he quickly becomes the top member of Club Beat-Your-Face.

It can get expensive to power up all his abilities every turn, but if you’ve got big beasts and powerful elementals in your deck, you’re using some land acceleration anyway. Just giving him the one mana lets him be an indestructible wrecking crew this turn. Giving him more lets him trample the crap out of your opponent’s army, and if you’ve got more spare mana kicking around, giving him +1/-1 can’t hurt since he’s already indestructible. A powerful addition to any mono-green stomp deck.
