In Other News – June 4 2010

2 min read


In just a week it’ll be time for the kick-off to the inaugural World cup 2010 match between Bafana Bafana and Mexico. My esteemed colleagues will also be on their way to E3. I’m going to simultaneously celebrate and drown my sorrows by drinking lots, and lots of beer.

Today in 1989, The Chinese army massacred hundreds of protestors in Tiananmen Square, Beijing. Not cool. Just last year, Kung-Fu’s David Carradine, Bill from Kill Bill, was found dead – and naked – in his hotel room in Thailand. Auto-erotic asphyxiation or deadly mystical forces at work?

If I were to engage in a bit of auto eroticism today, I’d do it to pictures of Bar Rafaeli, model and one-time trophy girl on the shoulder of Leo DiCaprio. It’s her birthday today, and that’s just about the only way I can honour her. It’s also Angelina Jolie’s birthday, but If I were to try rub one out to her I’d only be able to picture her adopted, international brood. That would make me Mr Floppy forever.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were too busy pulling our goddamned hair out because the site hasn’t exactly been working properly.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
