TGI Friday! A few Links…

I know… not the links you had in mind, right? Hey,what good’s a homonym if you can’t invoke it every now and then? Here are a few links to some things I found fascinating this past week:

The Summer of 8-Bit, via the 8-Bit Animal

If you’ve ever had to blow on a cartridge to play video games, you’ll likely enjoy this series of videos looking back on various 8-Bit titles provided by the aptly named 8-Bit Animal. Check out the Summer of 8-Bit series, for example the review of Stinger below.

Nerdgasm Noire Network

Recently, I was a guest on the Operation Cubicle podcast, talking about keeping cool in the summer heat both in and out of the office. One of the co-hosts of that show, Ms. JP Fairfield, actually hosts another podcast and site along with four other ladies. You heard that right, five women on one podcast talkin’ nerd shit! Well, I checked out the show this week and it was great! You should, too, and enjoy their variety of posts and features while you’re at it. Where’d you think I found out about 8-Bit Animal from?

Andray Blatche Sucks!

Beleaguered Washington Wizards power forward Andray Blatche hasn’t made many friends during his seven years in the D.C. area. Infamous twitter grouch and future guest of an upcoming CSP show Angry Man (@AngryblkmanDC) took a break from telling fools to sit their asses down to craft this site which collects the best of the worst of the player we like to call #BALTCHE!

The Last Dragon Tribute site

When we recorded Episode 34 of our show, “Shogun of Harlem”, to celebrate the film The Last Dragon and talk kung fu movies, I scoured the interwebs for a site that collected information on the film (I call myself doing research every now and then). Oddly enough, I had not seen this site until after we put out the show. Believe me when I tell you that this site has got all the goods on the movie in one place, including whatever happened to the cast, quotes, interviews and news and updates on a possible remake on the horizon. Well, what’re you waitin for, Bruce Leroy? Get the glow and go, already!

“Do Your Dinnertimin'”? What’s up with this Mickey D’s ad?:

Loyal listener and friend of the CSP MeisterShake sent us this vintage McDonald’s print ad that appears to have been done in the late 70’s or early 80’s. The ad seems to be geared towards African Americans and I’m guessing it was probably in Ebony or Jet magazine at the time.The photo itself doesn’t seem that offensive at all (shout-out to the lady on the left who looks a lot like Sheryl Lee Ralph [a.k.a. Moesha's mom, for you youngsters who don't remember "It's A Living"]).

But what really made me say “Hold up!” and want to call up Rev. Al Sharpton was the caption at the bottom. “Do Your Dinnertimin'”? Look, I’ve spoken some jive in my younger days, but I’ll be damned if I or my father before me ever referred to the evening meal as “dinnertimin'”! And we damn sure never partook in “anytimin'” either. Chick-fil-A may give money to groups that are anti-gay marriage, but they’ve never resorted to stereotypes to insult a race of people in their advertisements like this! Shorty is eyeing this random stranger’s cheeseburger a bit hard, though. FOH, McDonald’s!

The many origins of Spider-man

2012 marks 50 years of everyone’s favorite wall-crawler. With his latest film “The Amazing Spider-Man” coming out in a few days, Spidey is getting quite a bit of attention of late. This article posted at Comic Book Resources looks at the many versions of Spider-man’s origin story, as depicted in the comics, television, the movies, etc. I found it fun when they even went into the origin story from the 70’s TV series starring Nicholas Hammond! And shout-out to Tootie’s mom, but don’t leave any irons plugged in around her!

Cartoon Closets

All credit for this find is due to JCorduroy, who posted this on twitter just this morning (Ed. Note: make sure you give his show about HeroClix, Push to Regen, a listen!). For you ladies, and maybe some of you fellas, I don’t know, you can piece together a fashion ensemble to resemble your favorite cartoon characters! This blog is creatively run by B for Bel and contains links to purchase the actual garments used if you really want to get serious about pulling of a Wonder Woman, Shaggy, Iron Man, Jane Jetson or Papa Smurf outfit!

Atari: When My Parents Actually Liked Video Games

Also inspired by the folks at Operation Cubicle, this blog post can be found on host Shareef Jackson’s blog. Similar to our 8-bit Podcast episode, Shareef looks back on the Atari 2600 game system and library, noting that this was also a time when  “fun for the whole family” held more meaning to him. Let’s face it, what is your mother more likely to play? Ms. Pac Man or Call of Duty: Black Ops?
