Hey folks! It’s almost the end of the day and that only means one of two things: I get to play Assassin’s Creed 2 or it’s another installment of It’s the Internets! The internet is a wonderful invention (thank you Al Gore). When people say, “I wish I was an explorer. I wish I could do what Christopher Columbus did.” I want to slap the taste out they mouf and tell them this, “Put on your Dora the Explorer costume and come explore – the internets!”
- Fake or not, I’m in luv with a stripper
- Facebook? More like Face-whoops! Amiright?! (*crickets*)
- Guess I’ll have to go to Columbia to buy my coke in bulk
- Another awkward and hilarious installment of Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, featuring Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter
- ‘Merica don’t bow to nobody!
- A Call of Duty movie in talks? Yes please! Thanks Ian D.
- One of my most favorite scenes from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. If you havn’t watched this show yet, make sure to watch it Thursdays, at 10 on FX.
- And finally, a quick plug for my friend’s blog. She’s funny and talks about her cat most of the time. Although, most of these pictures aren’t of her cat at all…Either way, let’s help out her tumblarity, ok?
If you have anything awesome you’d like to share with the world, make sure you post them on the comments below and we’ll be sure to include them in our next post including a shout out to you! Check back tomorrow when we have more stuff for you – straight from the internets!
After buying Modern Warfare 2, I was pretty convinced I wasn’t going to play anything else on my Xbox 360. That was, until I went and got Assassin’s Creed II. The sequel to the game Assassin’s Creed, has improved gameplay and its new features make this game both familiar and new at the same time. Sort of like jumping into a Chuck-E-Cheese ball pit when you’re an adult. Oh it’s fun, and you remember it being fun, but it’s fun in a different way because you’re not drowning in a pit of balls since you’re not 3 feet tall anymore. Much like the creepy adult in the ball pit, Assassin’s Creed II stands over it’s predecessor in every way.
Assassin’s Creed II takes place right after the first one ends. Desmond Miles, a bartender who apparently is a descendant of a line of assassins, escapes his “prison”, the Templar owned research company Abstergo, with the help of an Abstergo employee, Lucy Stillman, played by the lovely Kristen Bell. They escape to a hideout of modern day assassins where the story revolves around Desmond trying to train to be an assassin via plugging into an Animus. Once in, Desmond re-lives the life of his ancestor, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, an Italian nobleman, playa, and soon to be assassin. After a life changing event causes this playboy to don the white cape and hidden blades, Ezio begins to uncover a plot that goes beyond treason. And yes – I said hidden blades.
Last night I attended my bi-annual tradition of Coming Attractions hosted by the Washington, DC Film Society at Landmark E Street Theater. Every Spring and Winter they hold a movie trailer night, showcasing about 30 new movie trailers for an audience to see. You get some free stuff, critique and vote on each trailer, as well as listen to the crazy film nerds yell stuff out (always a good laugh).
So I thought I would post on here the movies you should go see, the movies you shouldn’t even bother with, and the ones I’m still unsure about. We’ll do this in alphabetical order:
In our first sports related post, we have obtained exclusive insider information that head football coach Al Groh at the University of Virginia has been fired.
From a source who wishes to remain anonymous, information has been passed down from a chief donor at UVA. The donor claims Groh has already been in fact fired, however they are keeping him aboard until the end of the season as they begin their replacement coach search. The source also claims Groh already knows he is fired.
This really comes as no surprise as rumblings of Groh being fired have been swirling since last year when UVA declined to add an extra year to his contract. Groh has never been consistent enough to live up to his expectations coming into UVA football (former Parcells apprentice), this year he is 3-7 (2-4 ACC), losing 4 straight games. Which have led to a drop in donations, season-ticket sales and attendance. His best season came in 2007, going 9-4. Over Groh’s career at UVA, he is 56-44, going 34-30 against (the weak) ACC competition. And it only seems just like yesterday everyone was so excited for his contract extension.
Now it is unclear as to why Groh would stay if he already knew he was fired. Perhaps he believes if he finishes the season out, it will look better for his next job. ACC Sports Journal seems to believe that he will be fired (obviously), but it will be no later than November 30. But if it doesn’t happen ’til the end of the season, you heard it here first!
Special thanks to our UVA source.
