Welcome to 2016 everyone. We are a year wiser, older, and poorer from all the crap we bought Dec-Jan. Anyway here are some things you, the public at mass, need to look out for this week, because if I didn’t tell you, who would?
-As gamer channels and “lets play” shows become more and more popular and oversaturated there is one channel that I believe stands above the rest. There is a man who has been giving us constant geek/nerd/gamer entertainment for a few years now. This man is names Jontron. If you haven’t checked out his show on youtube yet you are missing out on quite a bit. What he offers more so than other youtube gamer channels is his wit, writing, and overall aesthetic of the show. He is not only the funniest gamer show host I have ever come across (sorry Pewdiepie) but he covers the games and the shows that he “reviews” in the most entertaining way. He doesn’t just play the game, he shares his aggravation and combines it with his comedic wit and talent that I don’t think any other gaming channel has. You aren’t just watching a guy play a video game on youtube, its a comedic adventure you will want to watch again and again. He just did multiple Star Wars games episodes before the movie came out that are MUST WATCHES. Check out his Twitter account: @JonTronShow and watch his episodes at https://www.youtube.com/user/JonTronShow
-The Rock has announced that he WILL in fact be at Wrestlemania 32 in Dallas, Texas. The Great one AKA Dwayne Johnson will be involved at the grandest stage of them all but in what capacity? He was at Wrestlemania 31 last year but in a very non physical role. He showed up, talked a bit, got slapped, Ronda Rousey showed up and stuff happened but it was certainly no match. The encounter was originally thought to set up a match between The Rock and Triple H at this year’s show but since Dwayne Johnson has signed onto the Baywatch Reboot it doesn’t seem likely that he will be performing in a match due to insurance problems. The last time the Rock performed at Wrestlemania 29 in New York, he suffered a hernia, torn adductor and torn abdominal muscle. All in all, even though he looks like a real life silverback, he is not in the same ring shape he was in his prime. Although it is doubtful that we will see him participate in a match, it will be interesting to see what capacity we see the People’s Champ at the show of shows.
-Seinfeld fans (there are a few out there right?) have you always been a fan of the show but thought “I would love a drink while staring at that famous portrait of George Costanza from the episode “The Package”? Well long no more fans of shows about nothing, because there is a restaurant in Australia that is ENTIRELY dedicated to the stumpy, balding casanova we all know and love. Yes, there is a restaurant called “George’s Bar” in Melbourne, Australia that is everything Costanza. Describing it wouldn’t do it justice so here are a few images. Yes its exactly what you think it is.
-I know I am a little late on the bandwagon for this one, but there is a new Netflix series called “Making A Murderer” which focuses on a man named Steven Avery who spent 18 years in jail for sexual assault and attempted murder. He was eventually released but then arrested again and accused of a separate murder. If you are a serial killer documentary addict like I am you will definitely love this series. It’s one of those shows that you find yourself questioning wether or not its a drama or reality. I can’t give too much away without spoilers but definitely check it out. All the episodes are up so get your binge-watching on. It is “cuffing season” after all…
-Just a heads up, pre orders for the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset start Wednesday. I still have yet to try one but from what I’ve been told this tech will be revolutionary to gaming and movie viewing experiences. From what I understand the technology isn’t exactly perfect yet but as time goes on I believe we can see something truly special from Oculus. Theres no price tag yet so your guess is as good as mine as to how much of a dent this will put in ur wallet. My scientific estimate… A LOT OF DOLLARS!
-If you weren’t able to catch Eli Roth’s latest bloodbath “Green Inferno” when it was in theaters, fear no more you bloodthirsty masses. Tomorrow “Green Inferno” drops on blu-ray/dvd/digital release. If you have seen any of Eli Roth’s previous works you will know that you probably don’t want to eat lunch before watching these movies. I won’t say much because anything I don’t want to give away ANY of the moments (and trust me there are many). The movie was originally only released in a few theaters so I know a lot of you missed out on this. The movie was heavily inspired by both “Cannibal Holocaust” and is a satire on millennials which I think always need to be taken down a peg. If you want gore laughter and the need to cover your eyes on more than one occasion, get this movie tomorrow, you won’t be disappointed.
Thats it for this week Melters. Wait till Friday when I give you fun shit to spend your money on this weekend…
