E.T’s Home Found in the New Mexico Landfill [Video]

As a gaming history geek, it was a very exciting weekend. For years, I have been reading of the rise and fall of Atari and the gaming industry. Many myths and legends have been spoken of over the years, some true and some not. It's not everyday that we get a rare chance to see someone figure out a myth, and front the cost for it. Perhaps one of the biggest myths that was solved this weekend was the infamous 'Atari Landfill Burial of ET.'

Let’s Never Forget Tom Green’s ‘The Bum Bum Song’ [Video]

Back in the late '90s, there was a show on MTV that many still remember. But anyone that didn't live during that generation will never know.

It was a comedian named Tom Green, and he had a show that was shortlived titled "The Tom Green Show." This was before "Jackass" became increasingly popular and was based on the crazy antics of the Canadian comedian on the street.

At the time, though, he wrote a song that was No. 1 in the U.S. at one time.

Metalhead Ned’s Random Pic of The Week-Vol. 6

 

This week is pretty cool! I get to meet a lot of big name bands in my line of work, and this one is no exception. Last night, Chevelle performed at The Orbit Room to a SOLD OUT crowd! Before the show though, we got to meet the band and have a picture taken.

Resident Evil 7 May Be Announced at E3 2014 [Video]

I don't know how I feel about this quite yet. Resident Evil 6 was such a disappointment to me.

Then, I heard that there there is a possibility of a Resident Evil 7 survival horror game on the horizon and that the new game may be announced at E3 2014, which is June 10 to 12 in Los Angeles. And where I normally was excited, I feel kind of "eh" about it.
