I actually like "Never gonna give you up" so I don't mind being rickrolled.
Super Mario Galaxy looks like best Mario game since Mario 64 and the best Wii game to date. Definitely picking it up next week when it comes out.
I watched him on Nickelodeon as a kid and used his book to blow off elementary school science fairs.
Fantastic domain name and a decent site. That scene from family guy is one of my all time favorites.
On the couple dozen times I've bought songs from the iTunes Music Store, the fact that I'd have to rebuy the same songs again to complete an album definitely stopped me from buying any more tracks from the same albums. Now Apple has introduced "Complete My Album," their answer to this issue. You get $0.99 off for each song off an album you've already purchasing. Brilliant move.
A fantastic look at the words and phrases from The Simpsons that have made their way into popular use.
Cromulent means valid, acceptable, or possibly commonplace, coined by David X. Cohen for the Simpsons episode "Lisa the Iconoclast"; embiggen, more obviously, means to grow in size.
When schoolteacher Edna Krabappel hears the Springfield town motto, "A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man," she comments she'd never heard of the word embiggens before moving to Springfield. Miss Hoover, another teacher, replies, "I don't know why; it's a perfectly cromulent word".
The University of Texas at Austin does everything big, the RIAA has listed their top piracy schools and UT comes in at number nineteen. Personally, I think students just need to a better job not getting caught.
Anna Nicole Smith found dead in a Florida hotel room. The Playboy Playmate and former Guess model from Mexia, Texas was 39.
I haven't watched a single episode from this season. It was barely watchable last season so at least they're cutting the rope sooner rather than later. Might make the rest of the season worth watching now since it'll be coming to a decent conclusion.
Gears of War is incredible but where are the rest of the must-have Xbox 360 games? There really aren't any and the exclusives on the horizon aren't exactly calling my name either.
Easy to follow write-up from Joystiq on how to take your Divx files and transcode them to WMV so you can play them on your Xbox 360.
Another death blow to YouTube being remotely useful once all the copyright holders come through and clear out all the decent content.
Pretty good opinion piece on how Sony and the PS3 can still win the next-gen console war over the Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360.
Christina and I watched AFI's 100 Most Inspiring Films Of All Time the other night, here's the full list. Lots of older stuff I've never seen, but I've added a bunch of them to by Blockbuster Online queue so I should be both cultured and inspired soon.
Not a huge discount, in fact at my rate for TiVo ($12.99 per month) it's not really a discount at all. Still a good deal for people who don't have either service and possibly a sign of better things to come from the TiVo and Blockbuster Online partnership.

Good Wikipedia definition with tons of math/physics/stuff I can't follow explaining why there's never a channel 1 on your US television.
Utah Jazz forward Carlos Boozer is suing Prince for violating his $70,000 per month lease by
painting the exterior of the [house] with purple striping, So odd. Who knew Boozer was such a real estate mogul?
prince symbol, and numbers 3121.
Demetri Martin has a ridiculously funny special report on MySpace and other online communities.
If you've got an ActionReplay (contact me if you'd like to buy mine for $20) or other like device for your Xbox or Playstation 2 you can play MVP 2006 NCAA Baseball with real player names instead of just jersey numbers or random fictional names.
I've only really checked the names of the Longhorn baseball team but they look pretty accurate.
Apple makes a TV commercial directly ripping off The Postal Service's video for
Such Great Heights. Immediately, Apple fans claim only truly innovative companies steal from other people. Seriously read the comments, they're defending Apple for this.
I've actually become a pretty big Apple fan over the last year or so (I'm on a 12" Powerbook right now) but Apple fans are complete morons.
