Rumor: Ewan McGregor has signed on for Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+! Totally seriously this time, okay?
Ever since Disney bought Star Wars, one thing has been seemingly clamored for by everyone. That one thing? Some sort of return to Obi-Wan for Ewan McGregor. And, it seems like it’s finally happening. Finally! Sure.
Amazon says its facial recognition systems can now detect fear. What a fantastic development for the police state!

Astronomers have detected eight new potential alien signals. Oh fuck yeah! Listen. I know there is a rush to point out that this shit is probably not aliens. That said, let me pretend it is? For a little?
New ‘Saints Row’ game is “deep in development” and I’m so ready to be meta-textual, ultra-violent trash again!

Eat gator! Jerk off in the woods! Sweat too much, smell too awfully. Enjoy nature! Curse how it makes your balls smell. Am I talking about my trip to Denver last month? Or am I talking about Red Dead Redemption 2? Why not both, you son of a bitch! Yadda yadda, blah blah. How the fuck are you folks doing? Me? I’m doing a-okay. Sleep late, masturbate. Two of the pillars of my current summer vacation. Life ain’t bad.
I mean, if you can ignore the Arctic melting, and the rise of fascism. But, I have faith you can. Us rot-mouth flesh-bellies have tremendous power to deny forthcoming doom. I imagine that prowess stems from our incessant need to deny our own mortality, and works its way into shuttering our eyes at the very-not-good situation on this planet.

Nintendo seems to be bringing an SNES Switch controller according to an FCC filing. Hell yeah, that old school feel!
Playing local co-op on the Switch is fucking fun, dudes. However, it’s not as fucking fun as it could be, because the Joy-Cons are so fucking tiny. But there seems to be a solution coming down the line. Fine, another solution. I know you’re going to tell me the Pro Controller exists. This solution? A fucking SNES controller!

Nathan For You is some of the most fantastic shit in recent memory, and I’ve been jonesing for Nathan Fielder to give us a follow-up since it ended. So, fuck dude, this rules.
Atomik Grain Spirit is vodka made from grains taken from Chernobyl’s Exclusion Zone. ‘Fallout’ fans, pop your boners!
I feel as though it’s particularly Fallout to take a rip of this shit. This shit? Atomik Grain Spirit, a vodka made from grains taken from Chernobyl’s Exclusion Zone.
Milky Way Galaxy’s supermassive black hole got 75 times brighter for two-hours and we got no goddamn clue why
Recently, our Milky Way Galaxy’s supermassive black hole shone brighter than a motherfucker for two-hours. And, the reason for it? We got no idea. Which is half of the awesomeness.
