  • I love that you guys have said something about this. I’m sorry though that we live in a world where this has to be touched on lightly and that it’s so sensitive sometimes that we can’t just say something and not get attacked or perceived one way when we mean another.

    What I find funny is I had that same experience with Star Wars in High School. Now I keep thinking I sound like a hipster but I mean I got a lot of flak about liking Star Wars and then after Episode I everyone was like oh yeah it’s amazing. All I have to say is if you know who Luuke Skywalker is then we could hang.

  • You know, if someone came to me said that giving up my video games would ensure that a shooting would (100% sure) never happen again, I would gladly hand over every single one. Same thing with my movies, and my tv, and my books, too.

    However, that’s never going to happen. If someone is psychologically damages, and is attracted to violence, they’re going to find it. If not through video games, then through movies, or books, or tv, or music. And if not there, then through real life, whether it be through the nightly news, or real life itself.

    And I’m going to sound horrible saying this, but sometimes people ar assholes, and their access to entertainment isn’t going to change that.

  • Simpsons Tapped Out sounds like it should be a Simpsons branded MMA game.

    The red sole shoes are Christian Louboutin, which I know because Kristen Bell took Craig Ferguson shopping for them when his show was in Paris for a week.

    I was happy the violence in games section of the show runs from 0:08:40 to 0:38:10, only a half hour of the show, the best part of the show as always is the almost hour of off-topic joking around!

  • A worse term for female masturbation that isn’t dirty: “Making Lip Gloss.” No idea what this means and why it has to pertain to lip gloss. But it creeps me out…in the same way that Fruity Pebbles reminds you of eyes. I can’t even use Carmex without being a little grossed out.
