Keith Olbermann Issues Apology … Sort Of

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Cable, NBC, News,

MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann, who recently made waves in the media community, issued an apology … or, what’s going to pass for one. The newsman was suspended from the cable news network after he donated to three separate (Democratic) political campaigns -- hardly the stuff of objective journalism.

Olbermann, who hosts MSNBC’s Countdown, apologized to fans for all the “unnecessary drama” surrounding the situation. He says he didn’t know the existence of the rule, which he says is applied inconsistently by NBC. He also stated he was told no form of discipline would follow his actions … just before he was suspended from the network.

The World According to Todd: Best of 2008

Laura Vandervoort

Figure Caption: You gotta love Supergirl!

It’s that time of year again when we look back at the year and see what lived up to our expectations and what fell flat on its face. So without further ado…here is MY Best of 2008.

Book of the Year: Captain America
When my friends ask me what the best comic out there is, this is my answer. Every month, Brubaker mixes social commentary, superhero history, and pulse pounding action into a symphony of awesomeness. As icing on the cake there is always a new twist or a new piece of character development that makes aspiring writers (like myself) bang their heads on a table wishing they thought of it. Damn you, Ed. Steve Epting’s artwork continues to be realistic and energetic with fun homages to great artists like Steranko.

Worst Book: Countdown to Final Crisis
Wasted time.  Countdown to Final Crisis was an over-hyped highlight reel of the DC Universe that promised to set the stage for Final Crisis. Not only did it not set the stage for Final Crisis, it didn’t do much of anything except steal minutes from my life I’ll never get back. That and about $156 from my wallet.

Shrek and Donkey

Today, we’ll look at the greatest heroes who ever shined on film. Will your favorite make the cut?

Shrek (Shrek, 2001; Shrek 2, 2004; Shrek the Third, 2007) voice of : He is the epitome of an unlikely hero and almost unintentionally saves the day every time. In true hero fashion, he does it all with a witty line and an unwillingness to seriously harm evildoers. What cements this animated character as a true movie hero? No hero can save the day without his trusty side quick, and Shrek has the best: Donkey (voice of Eddie Murphy).

Countdown To New Super Smash Bros. Website

Posted by Chris Pereira Categories: Fighting, Internet, Nintendo, Rumors, Wii,

Super Smash Bros. Brawl SnakeNo, not a countdown to the release of the game. The official Super Smash Bros. Brawl website has been updated with a countdown to the launch of a new official game website. Next week we’ll see its unveiling and hopefully, in the process, learn some new information about the game. Maybe some screenshots, character lists, or (crosses fingers) word on online play? Given that we’ve heard next to nothing about Brawl, any tidbit will undoubtedly be drooled over by Wii owners dying for the next big thing.

Be sure to keep your eyes open for the release of the website.
