What? Pokémon are evolving into sexy ladies!

The post-re-post blog-o-“sphere” has churned up a spectacular 493-drawing strong image of every Pokémon re-imagined as a sexy anime lady. Let’s all amuse ourselves by staring at it. This isn’t a furry thing, right?

This being the internet, the original source has already been lost and I cannot credit the creative genius behind this masterwork of 21st-century pop culture fetishism.

What I can tell you, however, is that Comics Alliance has already helpfully placed Miltank and her human counterpart side-by-side (see above), so my work as fetish pointer/laugher/admirer is already done.

Sony announces “NGP,” err, PSP2

January 27, 2011 News No Comments

Sony finally cleared away the months of rumours and speculation, officially announcing the PSP2, or as the company is currently calling it, the “Next Generation Portable.”

Much of what was expected came true: touch screen on the front, touch pad on the back, “PS3 quality” graphics, and dual analog. Perhaps more surprisingly, Sony has decided to ditch the UMD format and is switching to DS-style flash-based carts. Also included are 3G support, GPS, and an OLED screen.

Sony is promising a holiday 2011 release date for Japan, but no price has been announced. Random internet forum speculation indicates the thing will be pricey, in the area of $300-400.

Hyperbolic industry fellatio has already begun for the system, with one EEDAR analyst claiming:

After seeing the specs today, if the NGP can’t succeed, it is clear that the portable gaming landscape has forever changed. The future of portable entertainment is in the hands of Sony.

It’s like we’re right back in the PSP vs. DS days of 2004. Let’s see if Sony can really lift us out of the “gaming ghetto” this time.

Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook fan page hacked

January 26, 2011 News No Comments

Poor Mark Zuckerberg. He’s TIME’s person of the year, is worth billions of dollars, 500 million people he may or may not think are “dumb fucks” use his website, and someone hacked his fan page.

A group or individual apparently excited about the idea of Facebook being run like a co-op rather than a for-profit enterprise had this to say in the voice of Marky-Z:

Let the hacking begin: If facebook needs money, instead of going to the banks, why doesn’t Facebook let its users invest in Facebook in a social way? Why not transform Facebook into a ‘social business’ the way Nobel Price winner Muhammad Yunus described it? What do you think? #hackercup2011

The posting was quickly removed, but not before 1,800 people liked it. I wonder what Zuck’s password was. Love? Sex? Secret? God?

Ron Moore used Battlestar Galactica to trash Star Trek

January 26, 2011 News 1 Comment

Ron Moore was a long time writer and producer for Star Trek, mostly Next Generation and DS9, before moving to Voyager, where he explodinated and left. He went on to help develop Battlestar Galactica, and this included writing the “series bible,” a guide for how the series should function.

That bible is now available for public viewing, and it turns out Moore took his time to slap his previous series around a little in it. The man who obsessively wrote Klingon-centric scripts immediately discards “bumpy-headed aliens,” as well as “techno-double talk” and “thespian histrionics.”

Moore even went so far as to announce his series would not include typical science fiction characters like “the cocky guy” or “the fast-talker.” Hey, I thought Gaius Baltar was both those things!
