There was the Superbowl.
There were commercials.
It’s easy to imagine you might have missed anything else that happened. So here are the highlights of the open-thread reader submissions. This week’s tipsters include James.k.Polk, Anyone00, SlyDante777, Gallen_Dugall, scarfdemon, Citrus_King, skrag2112
-Dan Aykroyd, when somebody asks you if you are in the sheriff’s reserve, you say YES!
-Dune, Swede Dune
-Why yes, I believe the song lyric does refer to “the blood on his balls.”
-Things just got juicier at the Pentagon.
-Neknominate, a dangerous social media game that encourages extreme boozing, at least gives us a drunken Ronald McDonald.
-The wrist-wearable solar system.
-Own your own velociraptor cage.
-There are still people interested in new Dreamcast games.
-Yes, skrag2112, I think this is how Maximum Overdrive begins (though if I remember rightly, the movie itself begins with a computer calling a guy an asshole).
-Trailer for a concept album about an astronaut, or something.
-If you’re going to rip off Ghostbusters, the rule is that you should have at least a better theme tune than Bobby Brown’s “On Our Own.” Is it really that hard?
-I got 99 Spirits but a Lich ain’t one.
-The Equestria Girls sequel you deserve.
-J.K. Rowling wishes she were j/k about Hermione and Ron now.
-A Chipotle original series about the evils of factory farming. I trust a fast food chain to make good entertainment about as much as I trust them to make good burritos.
-Batarangs get less love now that they can be launched from Batman’s wrists, but classics are forever.
-Wanna get high?
-Never ask how the sausage is made.
-I would not eat them with Paul Heyman, I will consume them from Neil Gaiman.
