Futurama’s Zapp Brannigan Reads Stupid Donald Trump Quotes [Video]

So yeah, I promised myself that as a Canadian, I wouldn’t post anything related to the current presidential election in the U.S., but this is just too good not to post. Plus, we’re talking about Futurama here, which makes it pretty geeky. Listen as voice actor Billy West, which performs the voice of Zapp Brannigan in Futurama, reads stupid quotes from Donald Trump.

Roku Targets Cheapskates And Tech-Heads Alike

rokoexpress

Roku has announced three new devices including a $30 ‘Express’ model that’s clearly being pushed as a rival to Chromecast and more expensive models with 4K upscaling.

The company is ditching its policy of numbering its products, reasoning that as it’s launching new entry-level devices, the old “higher number = better device) system might get too confusing. Instead it’s switching to names, with the only existing model that’s staying in production being the $50 Streaming Stick.

That’s now undercut by the new Express model (pictured) which is a tiny dongle that connects to your TV via HDMI cable rather than plugging straight-in. It’s $30, with a $40 Express+ version exclusively at WalMart that throws in a composite output for older TVs. Both are otherwise much the same as the Streaming Stick with wireless connections only; the main cost-saving measure is that there’s a standard remote that has to be pointed directly at the box.

The mid-range model is now the Premiere at $80 that throws in 4K and 60fps plus upscaling. There’s also a Premiere+ variant (available everywhere) at $100 which adds in a wired connection, a “point anywhere” remote with headphone jack, and a microSD slot.

The top-end model is now the Ultra at $130 which adds in voice search, a USB port, gaming buttons on the remote, a “find my remote” feature and an optical digital out port that supports surround sound.

The Simpsons Theme Song Done A Capella [Video]

The folks from The Warp Zone teamed with with Youtuber Brizzy Voices to create an a capella version of the original Simpsons theme song. They even went as far as paint themselves in yellow for the performance! Check it out!

In honor of new full episodes returning for the Simpson’s 28th season, we decided to finally take a crack at performing a cover of the show’s classic theme song a cappella style! Boy was it a diddily-dousey!

Halloween Candies in September [Comic]

Me every year a few weeks before Halloween:

And this is why I have a love/hate relationship with Halloween. On one side, I love Halloween parties and costuming myself, and on the other, I hate the compulsion I have to eat all that chocolate.

EAT ALL THE CHOCOLATE!

How Disney Princesses Celebrate Oktoberfest

A fun infographic that pictures Disney Princesses and the type of brews they’d drink during Oktoberfest. Read more about each beer at the bottom of the post!

fest

Alice – Delirium Tremens
She’s in her own wonderland. Having delusional interactions. Need we say more?

Anna – Glueh Kriek
This cherry ale served hot with spices is sure to thaw out Anna’s frozen heart. It’s just what she needs to get through the cold and save her sister from a desolate life!

Ariel – Corona
She’s found her own beach. And she’s “miles away from ordinary.” No doubt about it; it’s a Corona for this one.

Aurora – Russian River Pliny the Younger
She’ll kick off her shoes and put up her feet with this beer. At 11% abv, it’s no wonder she’s called the Sleeping Beauty.

Belle – Rose Petal Imperial Golden Ale
Is that a rose in my beer? Yes, Belle, it is. And you can touch this one. Someone get her a Rose Petal Imperial Golden Ale.

Cinderella – Leinenkugel’s Harvest Patch Shandy
She rolls in a pumpkin, for god’s sake. We think she’ll like drinking one too. This beer tastes like pumpkin pie and will make her dreams come true.

Elsa – Coors Light
What’s the coldest thing in the world? Elsa is, of course, but so is Coors Light (or so their commercial says). We just know Elsa will feel at home with this beer.

Jasmine – Modern Times Fortunate Island
Whenever Jasmine wants to see a whole new world, we bet she gets wasted on a Modern Times Fortunate Island. Made with lush grapefruit, it’s refreshing, slightly exotic, and very unique. Yes, sounds about right.

Merida – Guinness Irish Stout
We know she’s not exactly from Ireland, but close enough? Besides, she’s unruly and does things her own way. Call her a little princess, and she might just throw her mug at your head!

Mulan – Tsingtao
She loves her country and would do anything for it. So, the only thing she’ll drink is a Tsingtao. Poor girl suffers so much for her homeland.

Pocahontas – Eel River Triple Exultation
It’s all natural and organic, and at 9.7% abv, it’s just what this badass Disney princess needs at the end of a long day. It might kick your butt, but she’ll drink it like water.

Rapunzel – Bud Light
She’s been sheltered all her life, knows nothing, and is like a child. We think she’ll stick with the entry-level Bud Light. Poor thing.

Snow White – Hoegaarden Original White Ale
It’s gotta be a white ale for the fairest of them all. We just know she got drunk off a six-pack of Hoegaarden before she fell into that deep slumber.

Tiana – Heineken
It’s all she can afford right now, but like the beer slogan says, “A better beer deserves a better can.” We think so, too, Tiana, so work hard and earn that better can!

Tinkerbell – Once Upon a Time East India Pale Ale
There’s a thing called the beer fairy (so says Urban Dictionary), but we bet Tinkerbell isn’t it. We just know this magical being ends her night with a nice bottle of Once Upon a Time East India Pale Ale.

Hodor has an Awesome Warcraft Tattoo (And His Mom Likes to Troll Him) [Pics]

So late last night, after reading about how Kristian Nairn’s mom (Hodor) was trolling the poor man by using a “Hodor” door stopper at home, I noticed that the actor seemed to have a pretty awesome tattoo. So I dug a little deeper and learned that the tattoo was a Warcraft tattoo depicting one of his favorite characters, Sylvanas Windrunner, The Banshee Queen.

First, the picture of his mom’s door stop:

hodor1

And now, the actor’s awesome tattoo:

Now that’s what I call a dedicated fan! Unfortunately, for those who are playing, you’ll likely never know if you ever pass by the man as he’s most likely playing anonymously, and understandably so.
