Mortal Kombat Legacy – Episode 1

The highly anticipated new Mortal Kombat video game comes out next week. In connection with the game, Mortal Kombat: Legacy the web series was created by Kevin Tancharoen. It was originally conceived after a “pitch” video entitled Mortal Kombat: Rebirth was released about a year ago. The first episode premiered today on Machinma.com’s YouTube.

It stars Michael Jai White (Spawn) as Jackson Briggs/Jax, Jeri Ryan (Star Trek Enterprise) as Sonya Blade, Darren Shahlavi (BloodRayne) as Kano and Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica) as Kurtis Stryker. More characters are expected to be in future episodes. Enjoy the premiere episode below.

Zangief Kid (aka Little Zangief) – Casey Heynes Bully Smackdown

Check out Zangief Kid (a.k.a “Little Zangief”) who was being picked on by a smaller kid.  The taller sixteen year old boy Casey Heynes, who in turn retaliates by a serious smackdown. Casey has been nicknamed Zangief by the Internet referring to the pro-wrestler character Zangief from the popular video game series Street Fighter. Its a combination of his size, red shirt and of course his take down that looks somewhat like Zangief’s Spinning Piledriver. This all went down in Australia… bitches are saying he should have gotten a teacher, but online he’s being looked at as a hero. Check it out, he’s pretty badass.

Bills’ Steve Jonson Blames God for his Dropped Pass… “C’mon Man!”

Professional athletes seem to be a religious bunch. They are always thanking God for their victories. I understand praying for safety in sports, or for the recovery of an injured player, but I never understood the idea that God roots for certain players over others. Either way, maybe God does root against Steve Johnson and the Bills… at least according to Steve Johnson. You see, Steve Johnson dropped an easy catch in the end zone in overtime against the Steelers. The Bills lost the game, and Steve Johnson is looking for answers as to why he sucks. Then he took to God’s favorite form of communication, Twitter, to let Him know of his pain. Weird, right?

Hopefully someone on ESPN’s Monday Night pre-game show will use their “C’Mon Man” on him. “Dropping the game winning touchdown then blaming God… C’mon Man!”

Kobe Stars in Controversial but Awesome Call of Duty: Black Ops Commercial

Kobe Bryant took some heat in the media for his role in this Call of Duty: Black Ops commercial. Jimmy Kimmel and the Rolling Stones’ Give Me Shelter also set the mood for the popular video game’s commercial. I can tell you first hand that the game is phenomenal and I think the commercial is great. It basically shows a bunch of normal people in war like conditions like in the game. Certainly war is not something to be taken lightly, but, c’mon man, its a video game. I think its fun. Quick fact: Call of Duty: Black Ops made more money on its first day then Toy Story 3 made in its entire theatrical run. How’s that for relevance?

Bedroom Intruder – Antoine Dodson

Who hasn’t seen the Antoine Dodson video at this point? Dodson is a former resident of the Huntsville, Alabama, Lincoln Park housing project, whose interview on the local news became an Internet meme and resulted in an auto-tuned song with The Gregory Brothers which has appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 list. Dodson’s interview was in response to an alleged house intrusion and alleged attempted rape of his sister. The seriousness of the alleged crime and news report gets crazy the second Antoine lets his inner diva let loose to the TV cameras.

In the meantime enjoy our selection for the best Sheldon quotes!

Sheldon: (knocking) Penny! (knocking) Penny! (knocking) Penny!

Sheldon: Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors.

Sheldon: I made tea.
Leonard: I don’t want tea.
Sheldon: I didn’t make tea for you. This is my tea.
Leonard: Then why are you telling me?
Sheldon: It’s a conversation starter.
Leonard: That’s a lousy conversation starter.
Sheldon: Oh, is it? We’re conversing. Checkmate.

Sheldon: A little misunderstanding? Galileo and the Pope had a little misunderstanding.

Sheldon: Leonard, you may be right. It appears that Penny secretly wants you in her life in a very intimate and carnal fashion.
Leonard: You really think so?
Sheldon: Of course not. Even in my sleep-deprived state, I’ve managed to pull off another one of my classic pranks. BAZINGA!

Sheldon: I am not crazy, my mother had me tested.

Leonard: For God’s sake, Sheldon, do I have to hold up a sarcasm sign every time I open my mouth?
Sheldon (intrigued): You have a sarcasm sign?

Sheldon: Interesting. Sex works even better than chocolate to modify behavior. I wonder if anyone else has stumbled onto that.

Sheldon: You can try, but you’ll never catch me. Bazinga!

Sheldon: Hello Penny. I realize you are currently in the mercy if your primitive biological urges. But, as you have an entire lifetime of poor decisions ahead of you, may I interrupt this one?

Sheldon: Are you upset about something?
Leonard: What was your first clue?
Sheldon: Well there was a number of things. First the late hour, then you demeanors seems very low energy plus your irritability…
Leonard: Yes I’m upset!
Sheldon: Oh… I don’t usually pick up on those things. Good for me.
Leonard: Yeah good for you.
Sheldon: (walks away and then turns back) Oh, wait. Did you want to talk about what’s bothering you?
Leonard: I don’t know… maybe.
Sheldon: Wow! I’m on fire tonight.

Sheldon: You can’t make a half sandwich. If it’s not half of a whole sandwich, it’s just a small sandwich.

Sheldon: Oh, Ubuntu. You’re my favorite Linux-based operating system.

Sheldon: Howard, you know me to be a very smart man. Don’t you think that if I were wrong, I’d know it?

Sheldon: This is the temperature you agreed to in the roommate agreement.
Leonard: Aw, screw the roommate agreement!
Sheldon: No, you don’t screw the roommate agreement. The roommate agreement screws you.

Leonard: When we watch Frosty the Snowman, he roots for the sun.
Sheldon: Excuse me, but the sun is essential for all life on earth. Frosty is merely a bit of frozen, supernatural ephemera in a stolen hat. A crime, by the way, for which he is never brought to account.

Sheldon: Penny.
Penny: Yeah.
Sheldon: Thanks for letting me stay here.
Penny: Oh, you’re welcome sweetie.
Sheldon: Okay, I’m sleepy now get out.

Sheldon: A neutron walks into a bar and asks how much for a drink. The bartender replies “for you, no charge”.

Sheldon: She calls me moon-pie because I’m nummy-nummy and she could eat me up!

Sheldon: Hello, Amy Farrah Fowler. I’m sorry to inform you that you’ve been taken in by unsupportable mathematics designed to prey upon the gullible and the lonely. Additionally, I am being blackmailed with a hidden dirty sock.
Amy: If that was slang, I’m unfamiliar with it. If it was literal, I share your aversion to soiled hosiery.
