The Weekend Hangover: Dune, Dreamcast, Dan Aykroyd?



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!

Toothpaste and orange juice.

-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.
