For the past couple of days, it’s become a routine for me to read a book before going to sleep. Tonight I decided to read some short stories by Haruki Murakami. After “The Elephant Vanishes” I start reading “Sleep” and after a few pages it dawns on me that I’ve made a huge mistake. You see, this latter story is about a woman who can’t sleep, but the event that triggers this is as follows: in the middle of the night she wakes up and can’t move her body (never a good start). She sees a shadow at the foot of the bed, a shadow which takes the shape of an unblinking old man who proceeds to stare at her. She sees him and with all her might tries to move to no avail. He continues to stare, vacant expression, unblinking… NOPE! Fuck you Murakami. Fuck you and your incredible writing, because I could perfectly picture that whole creepy as fuck scene in my head. No sleep, I guess.
Link, Isabelle, and more coming to Mario Kart 8 ⊟
What. Not sure if this reveal was accidental, but Nintendo UK’s official site posted listings for two upcoming downloadable content packs for Mario Kart 8.
The Zelda pack, coming this November, includes:
- 3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
- 4 Vehicles (is that a Blue Falcon from F-Zero?)
- 8 Courses (including an F-Zero stage!)
The Animal Crossing pack isn’t due until May 2015:
- 3 Characters: Villager, Isabelle, Dry Bowser
- 4 Vehicles
- 8 Courses (an Animal Crossing stage, yay!)
Each pack is priced at £7.00 or the UK, or around $11.60. The listings note, “As a bonus for purchasing both packs - as a bundle or separately - you can get eight different-coloured Yoshis and eight different-coloured Shy Guys that can be used right away.”
"Bob’s Burger’s" fall premiere Oct 5th and "The Walking Dead" premiere Oct 12th… So of course I had to do another mashup. This time Gene as Glenn; Teddy as Well Walker; Bob as Rick; Linda as Lori; and Louise as Daryl.
Yes… those are cheese burgers coming out of Teddy.
