The Loop

AOTS Friday, January 30

Posted January 30, 2009 - By Eugene Morton
It's finally here. Friday has come and we've garnered enough signatures on our petition for Olivia to go all the way with what she promised. Olivia dons her skimpy French maid costume and jumps into a chocolate cream pie, taking something extra with her.
In a special lead up to the Big Game on Sunday, we have taken it upon ourselves to do a little research on the hottest of the hottest NFL cheerleaders. We count them down for you now so that you can be informed on which team is the smokinest.
BTS Giatn Pie
We take a behind the scenes look at the making of the gigantic pie that Olivia jumped into live on the air. For pt. 1, we have an interview with Luke Wahl, the AOTS segment producer behind the stunt.
With an Intel Core i7 2.6 Gigahertz processor, 3 GB of Corsair RAM, and an NVIDIA GTX 260 Video card, the Digital Storm has smoked us with great performance and relative affordability.
Olivia has some pretty sweet stuff for you to grab up if you're interested in watching classic sketch comedy on the go while knowing exactly where you are and thinking about your Bravia/PS3 bundle which is at home waiting for you.
After a classic SCTV comedy sketch gets them in the mood, Kevin is inclined to munch down on dog food served to him by a giant drag queen. Yeah, it gets weird sometimes.
Kevin chats with filmmaker Ondi Timoner and his documentary subject, Josh Harris, in today's Loop which focuses on their new film 'We Live in Public,' a look at Josh's life as the self-proclaimed Warhol of the Web.

Blair Butler ran into Kevin Grevious at Golden Apple comics in Hollywood and just happen to have lights, camera, and action. They talked about the upcoming blood feud monster prequel 'Underworld: Rise of the Lycans,' which he wrote.
From his love of Crackberry to the first Nintendo Wii in the White House, there's evidence to support that Obama will be more tech friendly that past prezies. Evan Ratliff from Wired to gives us his professional opinion on the whole matter.
Alison Haislip is here to give you some stats on the Obama Inauguration, a huge credit card hackjob, the run of nominations for the Razzies, among other news that you care about.
Olivia hits the streets of Washington, D.C. to talk directly to the massive crowds of people about their feelings surrounding the madness and all-day party that was President Barack Obama's Inauguration.
In an effort to save a little money on expensive advertising in a faltering economy, we have developed a series of 1 second ads instead the traditional 30 second one.
We mostly feature dudes breaking their testicles and punching each other in drunken hazes, but today's Break Moments deals with the gentler persuasion. Watch as these girls fall off stages, fall off desks, and light firecrackers in their butts.

Mad Catz's CES Product Extravaganza

Posted January 7, 2009 - By kijibe

Mad Catz has announced some new toys at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

First, you now have even more choices when it comes to plugging up your ears when you need free hands and you gotta talk to mom on your drive home.

Mad Catz has released its AirDrives FIT Interactive Earphones and AirDrives FIT Interactive Earphones for iPhone.

It uses a patent pendidng InAir Technology which allows you to listen to the tunes but still be aware when someone is creeping up behind you. There are no frames in their earphones. Instead there's a wire loop that fits around the ears that's adjustable. Great for when you have your Blublockers or bike helmet on.

The AirDrives FIT earphones also has an integrated microphone that let's your pause your music to take those important calls, too.

They're priced at $59.99 -- yeah, a bit steep just for a pair of darn earphones, but let's see if the sonic quality makes it worth the price.

'Fable II' Showdown: Adam Responds »

Adam Sessler isn't one to take criticism lying down, so he responded to Kevin Pereira's criticism of Fable II being picked for Game of the Year in Tuesday's X-Play's Best of 2008. Sessler has accepted Pereira's challenge, and is poised to head to Attack of the Show to provide a response. Exactly what that response will be, we have no idea, but, according to Mr. Sessler, "It's on like f***ing Donkey Kong."

Kevin Pereira Calls Out X-Play

Kevin Pereira Calls Out Adam Sessler »

Oh, it's on now. On today's Attack of the Show, host Kevin Pereira called out X-Play for their choice of Fable II as their Game of the Year in yesterdays X-Play Best of 2008 special. Kevin thought that Fallout 3, LittleBigPlanet, or Left 4 Dead would have been the better choice, and should be chosen for the award.

He's challenged Adam Sessler, specifically. We have no idea what that means, or what it might lead to, but we're a little scared of the intensity that Pereira brought to the whole thing. Check it out.
