Amy Winehouse died. :(

I for one was a fan of hers. She wasn't the typical popstar. Her songs actually had honesty in them, she had a voice that gave you an idea of the struggles she'd been through, and she brought you back to another time in music. Not poppy overproduced songs, but heartfelt tunes about the trials and tribulations of life.

Everyone knew she was going to die with the buffet of drugs she was on at any given time of day, but it's still very sad to know she's gone. It's actually more of a shame. I wonder if her legacy will now live on like others before her time.

Oh well, sad to see her go, but at least she's done suffering mentally. 27 strikes again.

Captain America was pretty good.

There's a line in the movie that describes what the Super Soldier Serum does, besides enhance you physically. It also takes what's in your heart. If you're good, it makes you great, and if you're bad, it makes you very bad. Well in terms of this movie, it raised it from a pretty solid movie to pretty good movie.

Not big into Cosplay, but this girl is awesome.

Her name is Meagan Marie, here she Cosplays as Anya from Gears Of War with an amazing costume. She deserves much credit for this. What's awesome, is Cliffy B (guy behind the Gears franchise, seemingly the face of EPIC) was awesome enough to send her a replica Lancer to use for her costume.

Just looks near perfect.

Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom characters revealed.

Nemesis, Vergil, Rocket Raccoon, Nova, Doctor Strange, Frank West, Phoenix Wright, Iron Fist

There you have it, Capcom releasing 12 new fighters to go along with their previous 38 to round out a 50 character roster. Not bad. I'm just upset with no Juggernaut, Mega Man, or Doctor Octopus. I just feel a game like this needs more than one Spider-Man character. Especially when there's several Avengers, several X-Men, and several RE characters.

Oh well though, Guess I can wait for Super Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom Tournament Edition.

Game of Throne casting news.

Camelot star Liam Cunningham signed to play Davos Seaworth. He's a solid actor, but he wasn't quite what I expected Davos to look like. Oh well though.

Rampage is gonna kick Jon Jones' ass.

He already embarrassed him here, now to take him out in the ring.

I for one like Jones. He's a great fighter who's extremely fun to watch, I just feel the media and UFC in general is way overrating him. Yes he's a stud and a monster, but it's not as if he's faced top tier competition throughout his UFC run. Aside from Rua, it's arguable he hasn't faced another top 10 guy. The fact he ducked Rashad, a fighter I really don't like, really annoyed me too. It's not as if Rashad is some amazing fighter who strikes fear into you. He's just another of the top tier fighters, no better or worse than any of the other top 5 fighters. But for some reason, he was scared enough to claim he had an injury and needed surgery backing out of their fight, then when they found a replacement and the contract was signed, he was all of a sudden fine enough to fight again meaning the last guy that Rashad beat is now getting a title shot before him.

Other than that though, do I really think Rampage will win? Not sure, I hope so, but more than anything, I hope for a  much better fight than the Rua fiasco, where Rua came in fat, unprepared, and possibly injured.

iCarly references The Wire.

Pretty boss to see The Wire get some mainstream love I guess, especially after running under the radar nearly its entire 5 season run.

Was at my friends house watching this last night with his son and I was like, wtf that's a complete tribute to The Wire.

Now if you havn't seen The Wire, don't search for the original video since it's a big spoiler for season 5, but if you've seen it, you'll definitely get it.
