Internets Culture


A legal fight may be building up in the video game world, but I'm not talking about EA and Activision sparring over Infinity Ward. Casual game maker Zynga is taking legal issue with other game companies using the "Ville" suffix with their facebook games.

Zynga has created six popular Facebook games -- CityVille, FarmVille, FishVille, FrontierVille, PetVille, and YoVille -- that have a few things in common. First, they seem carefully crafted to suck both your time and your money away incrementally, and two, they all end in "Ville." So Zynga seems to feel that other companies' "Ville" games are infringing on their trademark, or, as the kids might say, "cold bitin' they steez." (I apologize.)

Howard Stern Re-Ups ContractWe're big fans of "shock jock" Howard Stern here at G4, and have been very worried that our morning commutes would be sucky for the foreseeable future if Stern truly left the airwaves at the end of his current contract. Good news: Stern has resigned with Sirius/XM for another five years, so our daily dose of comedy/outrageousness/deep interviews with celebrities is safe and secure.

Reddit poster Contra3 is my new hero. According to him, his girlfriend cheated on him, and rather than crying, punching a hole in the wall, or experimenting with a latent furry fetish, Contra logged into Netflix. He used the service's movie rating service to populate the cheating woman's most-liked list with the following films about infidelity:

Netflix CEO Says Likelihood Of Nintendo Support Is

I love movies but hate DVDs. I think everything should be streaming, the second I want it, in 1080p high-def. Netflix is the greatest, and has just rolled out a plan for me: A streaming-only option that costs $7.99 a month.

There's always a catch, though. Netflix is also slightly jacking up the price of their other DVD plans. The single DVD at a time plan is going up from $8.99 to $9.99, and the three DVDs at a time plan will cost you $19.99 as oppose to the $16.99 you have been paying.

So everyone loses but people who strictly stream... if only more films and TV shows were available as streaming options on Netflix. I bat about .500 when it comes to finding specific movies and shows streaming on Netflix. How about you guys? Are you Netflix people?

Links Of TheFeed: Extremo GTL

I don't really count myself among the many who find clowns to be terrifying. Even after seeing Killer Clowns From Outer Space as a kid, they never really freaked me out that much. However, if I ever have kids, I won't let them within 10 miles of Extremo the Clown & his Never Never Van, as he might be the creepiest clown around. Good news though, you can get to know him a little better from a safe distance on FilmDrunk's podcast.

There's something about a baby with a mustache that just isn't right.

Dear readers of TheFeed, I'm about to make your day... with Justin Bieber.  Internet.genius Shamantis took Bieb's piano driven soft-rock schlock "U Smile" and slowed that shizz down 800 percent, resulting in a trancey epic that sounds like Sigur Ros.

Jimmy Fallon does the most hysterically accurate, pitch-perfect impression of troubador Neil Young on Earth... combine that with internet meme-of-the-moment double rainbow, and you have comedy gold.

Please enjoy:

There's nothing all that new about "binaural beats." The low frequency sounds that supposedly change your brain waves and lead to new thoughts and states of being were discovered in 1839, and have been toyed around with by scientists (mad, no doubt) and others since. So why am I talking about them now? Because, according to Kansas' News 9, kids are getting high from using digital drugs made up of the insidious sounds!

"It's just scary," said Kelly Johnson, a parent and teacher in Kansas, "It's just one more thing to look out for." Check it out in the video below:

Kids who listen to the illicit sounds report... you know what, life is short. Find out for yourself. TheFeed doesn't advocate using drugs, but we do advocate listening to things on the internet, so I want you to go to this YouTube video, right now, put your headphones on and get high. I'll do it too. We'll iDose together... ready? Go...

The Short Bus Bunnies are a couple of attractive L.A. party girls who aren't afraid to be total goofballs on the internet. They also have important and powerful friends, like X-Play host Adam Sessler (and hopefully me, after this post.)

Check out the Bunnies' homage to picking up "hizzies" on L.A.'s freeway system, with a special cameo from the Sess himself.
