238,900 miles from Earth, I see my unborn child for the first time. My view is a grainy black-and-white image on a 10-inch screen, unremarkable and indistinguishable in every way, save for the tiniest of bubbles. It’s the great unknown. It’s my moon. advertisement advertisement I never cared about an ultrasound before my wife’s, before that grainy black-and-white image was our crystallizing future, before the radioscopic pulse of the diagnostic sound waves transitioned seamlessly into a heartbeat. The cadence was impossibly confident for an entity so small and distant. It was the sound of life itself. It wasn’t until hours later, staring at a snapshot in a trance, that I realized how intensely we’d been manipulated by a higher power. Because right beside the fetus were two letters that glowed like a star against the black background: GE. My child was but a bundle of organized cells just a few weeks in development, yet he or she had already been … [Read more...] about How GE Branded My Unborn Baby
While Leonard Nimoy’s obituaries will, of course, focus on Mr Spock, the late actor did more than put on pointy ears on movies. He was also an occasional director and his biggest success was also one of the biggest hits of the 1980s, the 1987 comedy Three Men and a Baby. None of Nimoy’s previous directing efforts suggested that he had any greater understanding of comedy than Spock himself: there were two Star Trek films, of course, and occasional TV episodes of shows such as TJ Hooker. But with Three Men and a Baby, Nimoy proved himself to be an adept handler of mainstream 80s comedy, updating the far more farcical (and chauvinist) French original Trois Hommes et un Couffin into something more Hollywoodised and slick. But within the slickness, he let his three leads, Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg and Ted Danson shine through with their own individual charm, particularly so in the case of Selleck and Danson (Guttenberg, to be honest, is pretty much acted off screen by both … [Read more...] about Leonard Nimoy’s other achievement: Three Men and a Baby
So Geoff Keighley is in Death Stranding, appearing in a cameo as a 'Prepper', a mission giving hologram. It's not a huge surprise given their close friendship, but it throws fuel on a popular fire - the theory that anyone that's been to visit the Tokyo studio is basically going to appear in the game. It's pretty obvious Kojima's been adding people he likes or admires to Death Stranding for a while: Guillermo del Toro and Nicolas Winding Refn, are two obvious examples. They've had their faces scanned, to be voiced and performed by other actors, and if Kojima's done it with them, he's probably done it with others. Either people less announcement trailer worthy, or just not revealed yet. He's likely been collecting faces like some sort of digital Ed Gein, adding them like lampshades to his game house. In fact we know he's scanning in celebs for... some reason. That's Baby Driver/Spaced director Edgar Wright visiting the studio up there in the top image. "Thank you for scanning … [Read more...] about Almost anyone who visited Kojima Productions is probably going to be in Death Stranding

Did you take a lot of bubble baths in the '60s, '70s, or '80s? Did you suffer from UTIs long before you ever had sex? You might be a member of the Mr. Bubble Generation. As a child, I repeatedly experienced burning and irritation when I urinated, along with a constant urge to pee, way before I ever knew what a UTI was... or that it even had a name. I'm not sure that I even complained about it to my mother, thinking it was just a way of life. I was big into bubble baths, and was partial to the pretty pink packaging of Mr. Bubble. Advertisement Right after I lost my virginity to my boyfriend, Anthony, at the age 17, that familiar feeling of fiery pee and the feeling of having to go but nothing coming out returned. It got so bad — including peeing blood — that I finally told my mother, who freaked out, saying, "I know what you've been doing! It's called honeymooners disease." She told me that she was going to put me on birth control, but for some reason, took me to the … [Read more...] about Are You A Victim Of Mr. Bubble?
