Obisidian Entertainment’s South Park: The Stick of Truth might’ve switched publishers in mid-development when THQ collapsed, but that doesn’t looked to have much of an impact on the game, because it still looks hilarious. Cartman and friends were present at Ubisoft’s pre-E3 press conference in a short trailer where Stan’s dad shows a kid the art of the fart. Nothing beats a little flatulence humor, am I right? Check it out after the break. READ MORE
I’m going to admit this right away: I pretty much hate musicals. I don’t know what it is but I just can’t get into them and it confuses me because many of the bands I listen to are basically musical theater with some distortion thrown in. Musicals such as The Phantom Of The Opera and The Wizard Of Oz just irritated me and the only ones I can think of that I really enjoyed were Little Shop Of Horrors, Evil Dead: The Musical, and Cannibal: The Musical (note: I don’t count Nightmare Before Christmas as a musical but know that I do love it).
However, something that I’ve always loved was South Park and the films of Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Each of their films is nothing short of hilarious and they are often incredibly witty and clever in their own way. It’s because of this love that I was so excited to hear about their Broadway show The Book Of Mormon. The guys have already tackled the Mormon faith before in the fantastic South Park episode “All About Mormons” and their outrageous yet raucously funny NC-17 film Orgazmo. So them doing a Broadway show with Mormonism as a central theme made perfect sense to me.
Getting to the point, I was invited to watch a performance of The Book Of Mormon on its national tour stop in Detroit, MI at the Fisher Theater. Below are my thoughts on the performance and the story as a whole. READ MORE
If you enjoy South Park, then you’re going to love this new trailer for South Park: The Stick of Truth. When so many games have players defeating alien races, zombie invasions, or saving the world, this game focuses on the important thing: the quest to become cool. This mad hunt for popularity is lost on someone like me, as I am brimming with cool. Like, if Jedi are have an abundance of Midi-chlorians, I have an abundance of Midi-coolians. Yeah. So if you want to be cool like me, you can start by watching this new trailer. READ MORE
Update: According to the AP, singer Billie Joe Armstrong is headed to rehab for substance abuse. The band also told AP that their set was not cut short.
On Friday night, at the IHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, NV (which was also being broadcast live via Yahoo), Green Day frontman Billie Joe lost it when he saw that his band only had one more minute left to perform. And by “lost it”, I mean that he basically had a childish temper tantrum where he swore up a storm (he used the word ‘f*ck’, or a derivation of it, 21 times), smashed his guitar and then threw his microphone across the stage.
The trigger for this was the fact that all bands/performers at the festival had a 25-30 set time allotted. This included No Doubt, Usher, and Bon Jovi, as well as many others. And yet, for some reason, Billie Joe felt that his band deserved a longer set list, claiming that they’ve been around, “…since f*cking nineteen eighty f*cking eight“. Hmmm, Bon Jovi’s first release was 1984, but you don’t hear him whining, do you Billie?
Apparently, Billie Joe wasn’t calm or rational during the show either. Yahoo states that he berated the few people who decided to sit down during their performance (I’d be sitting too), the band premiered a new song entitled “It’s F*ck Time”, and Billie Joe pulled down his pants, revealing his, “…personal grooming habits.”
Read on for my thoughts as well as a video of Billie Joe reverting to a snubbed 4-year old. READ MORE
South Park hasn’t had much success in the video games department, with the recent Tenorman’s Revenge and Let’s Go Tower Defense Play getting less than lukewarm reviews. If any game is going to remedy that it’s going to be South Park: The Stick of Truth. With South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone writing the script and lending their voices, and Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian Entertainment handling development, think of this as the first legitimate game based on the series. The Stick of Truth is an action RPG starring you, so if mowing down crab people, vampire kids, underpants gnomes, and hippies sounds like your type of thing, I suggest checking out the game’s action-packed new trailer after the break.

I think it’s safe to assume that most of us grew up watching Beavis And Butthead, whether we had to sneak out after our parents were asleep to watch it or not (maybe that last part was just me…). Mike Judge has done a lot of great, noteworthy things since the show ended – Office Space and Idiocracy are brilliant – but the two slackers inspire quite a bit of nostalgia and randomly show up on MTV every now and then. There’s been talk of Beavis And Butthead making a comeback for quite a while and at this past Comic-Con, Judge showed off a preview of some new bits which you can check out after the break.
The guys used to spend their time ridiculing music videos but they’ve kind of expanded their horizons – hopefully not THAT much – and are going to be reviewing flicks in an ‘At The Movies’ sort of setting, starting with The Human Centipede.
“That’s the only one I’ve done so far and one of the things I have them do after they show a clip of the movie is I have them talking about how there’s going to be a Sex and the City 3, why don’t they combine it with a Human Centipede sequel and just have those girls all get lost in the forest, the doctor strings them all together and you get two sequels in one,” said Judge. “Since I’ve done that, now there is a sequel to Human Centipede. It’ll still play hopefully. That’s part of the reason we’re waiting is we want to do a movie that’s just coming out. We have this animated set of them on a Siskel and Ebert like set.”
For those of you who missed last night’s “South Park” season premiere, Bloody Disgusting had the foresight to look back at the past 14 seasons and reflect on the various “horror-themed” episodes of Comedy Central’s animated comedy from Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
Last night’s episode, entitled “The Human Centipad”, took a jab at our technological advancements and loss of privacy, while also finding a way to integrate (pun intended) Tom Six’s disturbing The Human Centipede into the mix.
Below you’ll find a teaser, while the full episode is now available over at South Park Studios!
It’s no secret that horror and humor go together perfectly. We’ve seen it in movies such as Evil Dead 2, Scream, Leprechaun, Child’s Play, and many more. So what happens when a TV show built upon satire and parody takes a stab (no pun intended) at horror? Well, you end up getting some of the funniest, and possibly most disturbing episodes to air on broadcast television. Here now are 10 horror inspired “South Park” episodes. Enjoy!
Usually I’m pretty up to date with the underground scene but somehow underground Cali artist Hopsin fell under even my radar till now. The CD is titled ‘Raw’ and that says it all. Check out the review after the jump.
