Ladies and Gentlemen, The Beatles!

September 8, 2009

It’s Tuesday, which makes “Mondaze” an inaccurate label, but who cares. Tuesdaze. The Beatles!

They say that everything old is new again, and right now nothing proves that more than the hyper fanfare surrounding the latest offerings from The Beatles. 45 years after appearing mop-topped and suited-up on the Ed Sullivan show, the boys from Liverpool are once again driving women (and middle-aged men) crazy: tomorrow sees the twin release of The Beatles: Rock Band and remastered editions of all their albums. The box set of the latter has been sold out on Amazon since it was announced a few weeks ago; the former will likely be the most sought-after videogame of the fall. The Beatles, arguably the greatest and most devotion-inspiring band of the 20th century, have now successfully planted their flag in the filled with unmemorable music newish 21st. Good thing, those guys could definitely use the money!

Obama’s Presidential Victory, Now On Your Super Nintendo Game Console!

December 2, 2008


This was, of course, inevitable. After children’s books, songs by would-be “political” rappers (and friends!) and face-lifts for outdated American currency, it was only a matter of time before President-Elect Obama dipped his toe in the 16-bit pool. Enter “Super Obama World,” a platforming adventure starring everyone’s favorite 44th President of the United States. As in its predecessors, “Super Mario World” and “SMW 2: Clinton’s Island”,” the controls are relatively simple: run right, run left, jump. (Like Mario, Obama’s got ups.) Easy to play but hard to put down, this just-released game will quickly become your favorite antidote to workday depression.

More Obamania after the jump!
