Fun Watch: Crazy Star Wars Interviews

This is a fun little episode from Screen Junkies featuring rarely seen Star Wars interviews. The interviews are pretty interesting, as you would think the cast of Star Wars would know most of the details and plot of a movie they spent months working on. However, it turns out you could turn to your mother right now and ask her to break down the Star Wars movies and she would probably do as good a job as any of the actors of the original films did. It’s pretty great. Enjoy!   Advertisements

Cause Why Not: Man Attempting to Get Screenshot of Every Soda Machine In Video Game History

In why the hell not news, this is a website by Jess Morrissette, a political science professor and amateur video game developer who is attempting to archive via screenshot every soda machine that’s ever appeared in a video game. Damn right he is! What are you doing with your life? Helping the needy? Oh…well that’s good too I guess. Anyway, check out the site here and if you want to contribute to the cause (tis’ the season for giving afterall) you can tweet your screenshots to @decafjedi. Keep on fighting the good fight! P.S. There are games called Pepsiman and MyCoke?

Traumatize Your Childhood: Cutting Open an Original Teddy Ruxpin

This is a video of from the YouTube channel What’s Inside? cutting open an original 1980’s Teddy Ruxpin toy. Ya know, because the original toy wasn’t freaky enough to begin with (you know he was created by a mad scientist right?). So, why not spend $500 to hack the thing to pieces and make it infinitely scarier? Oh and do it all while your child watches…You people make me sick. Enjoy the video!
