‘Back to the Future: Part II’ Expertly Edited, Showing the REAL 2015

Okay everyone, it’s been well over a month since Back to the Future Day back in October, and we all know this truth by now: the 2015 predicted in Back to the Future: Part II did NOT happen in real-life (not exactly, anyway). I mean, we have spec and expensive demonstrations of hoverboard devices, Nike has developed working self-“lacing” shoes, and we got Google Glass.  However, there’s no Jaws sequel, no dehydrating (and growing) pizzas, and the Chicago Cubs couldn’t get past the American League Championship Series to make it to the World Series (however, that does mean NO Biff’s Pleasure Palace, so….yay?). But that’s OK, we — and by “we,” I mean PistolShrimps — can just change the past by re-editing Back to the Future Part II to include things that DID happened in the year 2015.

wrestling with death

WGN, who’s been having quite the streak with excellent original content (Salem & Manhattan FTW!),  is about to bring a brand new original series into the fold early next year — roughly two months away — and this new show is ALL kinds of ridiculous and amazing at the same time. The series is called Wrestling with Death, which — according to the show’s Facebook page — is a “unique family docu-series.” Wrestling with Death will be WGN America’s first unscripted series, and will introduce the world to The Lathams, who run The Wilson Funeral Home in Osceola, Arkansas as morticians by day, and run The Mid-Southern Championship Wrestling League as professional wrestlers by night.” SOLD!

Indie Game: The Movie; a Movie of Indie Games…Get it?

Sure, we gamers enjoy the triple-A, million dollars games that big-name, big-time developers and publishers with large employee numbers churn out to us in retail stores every year.  However, how about the games that aren’t big budget titles, made by a small team of people (if not just one person), and don’t get the same mainstream attention?  Here’s a secret: some of those independently-developed video games are just as fun (if not MORE fun) than their big-budget counterparts.  For the real stories behind some the most recently acclaimed games of this type, look no further than the documentary, Indie Game: The Movie.

Absolute Intense Wrestling’s “Absolute Intern” Online Reality Show

Whenever the terms “reality television” and “professional wrestling” come together, the first thing that usually comes to mind would be the successful Tough Enough series from World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).  From it’s original run on MTV from 2001 to 2003 (not counting the competition on WWE Smackdown — sans its own show — in 2004), and it’s revival last year on the USA Network, the … Continue reading Absolute Intense Wrestling’s “Absolute Intern” Online Reality Show
