The Amazing Race: Season 12: “Let’s Name Our Chicken Phil”

The Amazing Race

Instead of venturing to a new destination, the remaining eight teams stayed in Burkina Faso for their latest round of adventures.  In other words – the episode was surprisingly airport-free.

Having reached the last pit stop in first place, Azaria and Hendekea had the honor of kicking off the next leg of .  Their first mission was to follow a marked path to a nearby village.  There, the teams would find a tribal chief waiting with a clue….and a live chicken.  The birds – a customary gift of generosity – was something the teams had to take with them during their travels.  (They would not be allowed to ‘check-in’ without their ‘chicken’.)  Shana and Jennifer opted to name their new pet ‘Phil’; something about its spiky hairdo reminded them of the ‘cute’ host.

Robo-Goat for Losers

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Misc. Tech,

Robo-GoatIf you lose at the Edogawa Kyotei boat races in Tokyo, you can feed your ticket to their robo-goat. Instigated last month, the 1.6 meter tall Rocky Mountain critter features a white fur coat and ticket-detecting sensors. They say he eats about 500 of them a day and his keeper claims, “It eats up your frustrations so that you will have better luck with the next race.”
We wonder, if your next bet is a loser, too, will the goat eat your shirt?

GamerAndy Live! Episode 79: Sony Happy Goat Time

GamerAndy LiveWe are back with another episode of GamerAndy Live! This week GamerAndy, GamerEdie, and Gear Live‘s Andru Edwards are behind the mic, bringing you a fresh dose of this week’s gaming news. Be sure to hit us up on the forums and let us know what you think.

SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 79:

  • A recent ruling by the Copyright Royalty Board threatens Internet radio and independent musicians by increasing costs to webcasters by 1,200 percent retroactively…and even for non-RIAA music. Please send a letter to your representatives to help reevaluate this Draconian and dangerous decision!
  • Sony throws party to celebrate God of War II. Great. The centerpiece of this event? A partially decapitated goat—and guests are invited to reach into the still-warm body, grab handfuls of offal and eat it. Good lord, what were they thinking?!? (Warning: Photo slightly NSFW in the United States for slight nippleage.)
  • Edie discusses the relative difference of “titties,” “boobies,” “boobs,” and “tits.” Andy defines “gazongas.”
  • The Xbox 360 Elite: Does Andru care? Does Edie?
  • Hironobu Sakaguchi (Red Racer, Final Fantasy) + Ken Kutaragi = BFF? Apparently not.
  • Speaking of Krazy Ken: He’s gone. Sony doesn’t want him, and neither does Nintendo, apparently. Sayonara, Sony! Konnichiwa, Mickey-Dees!
  • Andy goes into more detail about his recent PS3 purchase… and it’s not pretty. Andru and Edie also discuss the possibilities for Playstation Home, both pros and cons.
  • Edie still hearts her PS2, and Bully.
  • Andy rails about Kotaku’s recent habit of using countless internal search links in their stories—frustrating as hell, he says.
