Best Buy to Relocate Entire Movie Stock to Unorganized Bins by 2014

Let me start by saying that I am a Best  Buy Reward Zone Premier Silver member. I guess that means that I’m a boss like Rick Ross in the Best Buy world or something like that. I’ve achieved this status by pretty much only buying movies and TV shows. Rewind to two weeks ago.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter: Grindhouse Ax Fu Classic or Meaningless Bargain Bin Distraction?

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is exactly what it says on the tin. That’s easy. What’s harder to answer is whether or not this movie is successful at being an entirely unique and enjoyable experience. How better to answer that question than by comparing it to four distinctly different movies? Let’s cut the ear off this one.

Today’s Occurrence: Don’t Mess With Felicia Day

Social media is such a enigma. You never know what will become big news, or won’t, but something big is always around the corner. So, imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning to find out that some Twitter user bashed Felicia Day, and the Twitterverse was all up in a tizzy about the event. The Twitter user in question is Ryan Perez, who at the time of the offending tweets worked for gaming website Destructoid (Perez and Destructoid parted ways shortly after the incident).
