Informative Murder Porn

The kids are concerned that their parents are going to try to kill each other all-new episode of "South Park" titled "Informative Murder Porn," premiering Wednesday, October 2 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.

The kids are trying to keep their parents from watching graphic sex and violence on television. Now Randy and Sharon’s nightly TV routine is interrupted and getting their "Informative Murder Porn" back is a matter of life and death.

Felina

"I did it for me. I liked it."

Breaking Bad is over. It's done. No more episodes. I may have just finished watching the greatest TV series in the history of ever. Seriously.

The final episode was amazing. I wouldn't change a thing. It brought me almost to tears. Very fitting, very appropriate in every way. Goodbye, Breaking Bad. You will be missed!

2013 NFL Picks Week 4

Wow. Back to reality. I finished last week at under 50%: 7-9. My percentage dropped 9% to 60% overall, so it's not completely terrible yet. I was hoping to get a lot of "wins" before the bye week's started, but oh well. I apologize for anyone who used my picks! Let's see where I went wrong...

Right off the bat, I picked the Eagles to win, and of course picked wrong. That 25% from last week will be even lower now. Houston played like shit at Baltimore, and got blown out by 21. Washington lost a toss-up at home to Detroit. Tampa Bay failed to put up a fight in my upset pick over New England. Minnesota was shocked at home by Cleveland. Green Bay overcame a big defect, but couldn't keep a lead in a loss to Cincinnati. Miami beat Atlanta, Indy blew out San Fran by 20, and the Jets won a second game already, all to my surprise. 0-3 in upset picks.

I'm done with this week, so moving on to this week's matchups; as a reminder, upset picks* in italics:

Thursday, 8:25pm
San Francisco 49ers at St. Louis Rams
Sunday, 1pm
Seattle Seahawks at Houston Texans
Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars
Arizona Cardinals at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Pittsburgh Steelers at Minnesota Vikings
New York Giants at Kansas City Chiefs
Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions
Cincinnati Bengal at Cleveland Browns
Baltimore Ravens at Buffalo Bills
Sunday, 4pm
New York Jets at Tennessee Titans
Washington Redskins at Oakland Raiders**
Dallas Cowboys at San Diego Chargers
Philadelphia Eagles at Denver Broncos
Sunday, 8:30pm
New England Patriots at Atlanta Falcons
Monday, 8:30pm
Miami Dolphins at New Orleans Saints
*as of 3:45pm Thursday 9/26
**changed pick to Redskins after news that Pryor wouldn't start.

Let Go, Let Gov

NEW YORK, September 23, 2013 – Cartman wants to hold the government accountable for secretly monitoring all of his personal information in an all-new episode of "South Park" titled "Let Go, Let Gov," premiering Wednesday, September 25 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on COMEDY CENTRAL.

When Cartman manages to get himself behind the doors of the NSA, he doesn’t like what he finds in his personal file. He thinks it’s time he told everyone the truth. Meanwhile, Butters finds someone new to listen to his prayers.

Eagles vs. Chiefs: Behind the Numbers 2013

It was almost a year since Andy Reid won a game at Lincoln Financial Field; too bad this time it was as head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs! The Eagles were handed their 8th straight home loss, and their second straight of the 2013 season dropping them to 1-2. It doesn't take a genius to figure out why the Birds lost this game, but let's take a look to see if they numbers confirm or deny. Spoiler alert! They confirm:


Honestly, there aren't too many huge discrepancies here. The Eagles only lost the game by 10, but it felt like much more than that based on how poorly they played. Want proof? Fix your eyes on the final two stats: Turnovers and Points Off Turnovers. While the first two games were played fairly clean (2 turnovers) by the Eagles, they more than made up for that against the Chiefs (and are now even in takeaways/giveaways). Michael Vick looked like he forgot how to make good decisions. Simple things like catching a punt and snapping the ball could not be done. In total, the Eagles turned the ball over to the Chiefs 5 times, who scored (luckily only) 13 points as a result. Philadelphia didn't help their cause early on, as 2 of their turnovers put them in a 10-0 hole before 5 minutes were off the 1st quarter game clock. Hmm, seems like those 10 points really helped out Kansas City, considering THEY WON BY 10 POINTS. Without that help, who knows how this game would have ended. Other stats to take note of: the Eagles are obviously better running more plays on offense, but this was the second game where they lost that battle (77-63); when they do run plays, they have an excellent average gain (6.8) and can clearly run the ball (260 yards vs 147); penalties have been pretty good this year; and third down percent was sub par this game (30%).

The final two episodes of 'Breaking Bad' will be extra long

"I checked & it's official. Last 2 #BreakingBad eps are 75 minutes each w/commercials," tweeted Breaking Bad writer and co-executive producer Peter Gould. "Set your DVRs accordingly. Better still, watch live!"

I've seen other sites claim that this means each episode will be an hour long (actual content), but this won't be the case. About half of the extra 15 minutes will surely be commercials, so look to get around 6-10 extra minutes of Breaking Bad for the next 2 weeks. But hey, that's better than missing out on a few extra minutes!

Everything is Samuel L. Jackson's Fault

2013 NFL Picks Week 3

Well talk about being consistent! For the second week in a row, I finished with 11 correct picks out of 16 games. This week is the last week of 16 games (until later in the season), so hopefully I can rack up a few more wins before the bye weeks start.

Remember last week when I guessed that I was only 25% accurate when picking Eagles games? Turns out I was a bit better than that, at 33% (4/12). Still terrible though, and probably the worst for any team. Of course, I incorrectly picked them to win last week; I should just pick them to lose every week! Not too surprised that Miami beat Indy at home, and the same goes for Carolina over Buffalo. I assumed that Detroit was the better team than Arizona, but Arizona came out on top at home for this toss-up. Now the real shocker? Not that Seattle beat San Fran, but that they destroyed them. That defense is no joke, and Seattle just became front runners in the NFC. 

New feature for this week! I'm going to start putting the upset picks* in bold and italics, so keep that in mind. Now to pick another tough week of games:

Thursday, 8:25pm
Kansas City Chiefs at Philadelphia Eagles
Sunday, 1pm
Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens
New York Giants at Carolina Panthers
Detroit Lions at Washington Redskins
Arizona Cardinals at New Orleans Saints
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New England Patriots
Cleveland Browns at Minnesota Vikings
San Diego Chargers at Tennessee Titans
St. Louis Cardinals at Dallas Cowboys
Green Bay Packers at Cincinnati Bengals
Sunday, 4pm
Atlanta Falcons at Miami Dolphins
Jacksonville Jaguars at Seattle Seahawks
Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers
Buffalo Bills at New York Jets
Sunday, 8:30pm
Chicago Bears at Pittsburgh Steelers
Monday, 8:30pm
Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos

Previous Results
Week 1: 11-5
Week 2: 11-5
Season: 22-10 (69%)

Eagles vs. Chargers: Behind the Numbers 2013

Well, last Sunday's home opener against the Chargers was disappointing, to say the least. Fans were riding high after last week's dominant win over Washington, but were severely let down with this loss. Before even delving into the numbers, I'll state the obvious: The Eagles defense lost this game, big time. Let's see if the numbers agree!



I'll start with the stats that stick out the most: offensive plays, average gain, first downs, 3rd down %, penalties/yards, and turnovers. Now some of these were in the Birds favor, but others weren't. The San Diego Chargers ran more plays than Philadelphia (who only ran 5 more plays than in the first half of last week's game), but Philly gained close to the same number of net yards (511 vs. 539) with a average gain of 2 more yards per play. 8.8 yards per play is quite good, but that's a moot point if you give up over 530 yards of total offense to the opposition, let them get 33 first downs, and fail to stop over 2/3 of their 3rd down attempts. Add to that by committing 9 penalties for 77 yards (the Chargers had less than half of that) and even with 2 turnovers it's no surprise that you set yourself up to lose the game. Sure, they didn't turn the ball over (Vick is making good decisions for now, more on that later) but when they forced turnovers by San Diego they were unable to capitalize. 0 points off turnovers, though to be fair both turnovers prevented scores from the Chargers. So basically besides a nearly perfect game by Michael Vick and accumulating over 500 yards of offense and 30 points, the Eagles lost this game by giving up just as much as they had. Plus 3 points, of course.

The Walking Dead to get a spin-off?

From Uproxx:

Indeed, AMC announced today that it is in the early stages of developing a spin-off to The Walking Dead, set for 2015. Details are scarce. Here’s what AMC had to say, according to TVLine. 
“Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” said AMC prez Charlie Collier in a statement. “We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters. It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse.” 
Series creator Robert Kirkman added this:
“After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn’t be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe. The opportunity to make a show that isn’t tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing.”

South Park Season 17 Trailer

Holy shit dude. South Park will begin its 17th (!) season in about a week, on September 25th on Comedy Central. It's been nearly a year since the last episode aired on November 7th, and keep in mind this season will only be 10 episodes long airing back to back. What will they make fun of this time? Check out the teaser trailer below!

2013 NFL Picks Week 2

Good start to the 2013 season! I finished 11-5 for Week 1, which is a respectable 69%. That's up 4% from my average last year, so let's hope the improvement can improve.

Recapping Week 1, I lost toss ups between Tennessee and Pittsburgh (how bad did they look?), Atlanta and New Orleans (figured that would be a shootout!), and Green Bay at San Francisco (the 49ers are legit, should have picked them at home). I, like everyone else, was stunned that the Jets won a game, let alone against Tampa Bay. And the only game I was glad to lose? The Eagles at Washington. I don't know for sure, but I'd guess I've correctly picked Eagles game about 25% of the time. I'll check later. Week 2 has some tough games to pick, so hopefully I can continue my good fortune:

Thursday, 8:25pm
New York Jets at New England Patriots
Sunday, 1pm
San Diego Chargers at Philadelphia Eagles
Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans
Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens
Dallas Cowboys at Kansas City Chiefs
Miami Dolphins at Indianapolis Colts
Washington Redskins at Green Bay Packers
Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears
Carolina Panthers at Buffalo Bills
St. Louis Rams at Atlanta Falcons
Sunday, 4pm
New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals
Jacksonville Jaguars at Oakland Raiders
Denver Broncos at New York Giants
Sunday, 8:30pm
San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks
Monday, 8:30pm
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals

Eagles vs. Redskins: Behind the Numbers 2013

Well, one way for the Eagles to sucker me in to doing another season of Behind the Numbers is to start the year with a excellent win over the Washington Redskins (even though they started last year 2-0). If you don't know what Behind the Numbers is already, check out last year's installments by clicking the tag below this post. Without further ado, let's start the first entry of the 2013 season:


Right off the bat, I'll let everyone know that I added a new category this year: Points Off Turnovers. I felt like this was an important stat to keep track of; obviously turnovers are a huge indication of the quality of a team, but if the other team can't capitalize on said turnovers then it doesn't matter as much. Right? Right. Let's analyze! 

The first thing that sticks out is obviously the discrepancy in rushing yards. The Eagles amassed a ridiculous 263 yards on the ground, to just 74 for the Redskins (yes, even with RG3 and Alfred Morris). This is partly due to the Eagles building a 26-7 lead by halftime, but mainly due to the absurd running skills displayed by LeSean McCoy. Did you see those cuts and jukes? Holy crap, he made the Redskins defense look like a high school team, averaging 5.8 yards per carry. Moving away from the run game, the Eagles came out on top for offensive plays, net yards, average gain (which matched McCoy's), first downs, third down conversions, and points off turnovers. They even did better than the 'Skins in the "bad" categories: penalties (8 vs 10), penalty yards (75 vs 65), and turnovers (2 vs 3). The only advantage that Washington had? Passing yards, which makes sense given that the Redskins tried to overcome a huge 26 point deficit. I was most impressed with the Birds 3rd down conversions, which at 47% is a huge improvement from last year's average (37%).  More after the jump!

'Better Call Saul' moving forward

From Vulture:
AMC and Sony Pictures Television announced today that they're moving forward with the Better Call Saul spinoff of Breaking Bad. The show is planned as a "one-hour prequel that will focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer."
The series is not a totally done deal, though. Deadline reports that the series order is "pending the complication of Sony TV’s deals with Gilligan, [BB writer/producer Peter] Gould and Odenkirk," and the Sony/AMC statement does not mention any of these three men. It just touts that it has reached a "licensing agreement," and that wasn't an oversight: Sony tells Vulture that the studio has "nothing else to add right now."

An American Psycho TV series in the works

Interesting! It was feature a 50 year old Patrick Bateman, so the series will obviously be a sequel. From EW:

"In the new drama series, iconic serial killer Patrick Bateman, now in his mid-50’s but as outrageous and lethal as ever, takes on a protégé in a sadistic social experiment who will become every bit his equal — a next generation American Psycho"


Thoughts? It's been a while since American Psycho was on the big screen, so will the interest be there to justify a TV series? How would a series even work? It clearly couldn't be as graphic as the film, right? We'll see.

The Beatles 'Abbey Road Medley' stripped down to just the vocals

I implore you all to set aside 16 minutes of your day/night to listen to this. It's a vocals only version of The Beatles' famous "Abbey Road Medley" from the finale of Abbey Road, and it just reassures me (and hopefully you) that they could all sound amazing across a variety of songs and Paul, John, George, and even Ringo could harmonize better than anyone. Press play below to listen, and I'm sure you'll start singing along in no time.

The Seussing Dead

The rhymes could use a little work, but other than that a pretty neat match up combining Dr. Seuss with The Walking Dead as a way to summarize Season 3...

Campbell's Soup K-cups are a real thing

K-Cup SoupThat headline may seem fake at first, but it's not. Campbell's is releasing 3 varieties of soup in K-cup form. Obviously a cup of soup is not going to cook in a tiny K-cup, but rather the broth contained within will be heated and dripped into a waiting bowl full of noodles and vegetables. I have a feeling this will be insanely popular especially in a workplace setting, but honestly they aren't that practical. I mean this isn't anything new, as several companies already put out products that are basically the same and only require a couple of minutes maximum in the microwave. Regardless, chicken noodle soup will be available for your Keurig in 2014. (via)

Breaking Bad: The Musical?

It was only a matter of time before somebody made a Breaking Bad themed musical; I'm surprised it took this long! The musical covers the story from Season 1 all the way until the end of the first half of Season 5, so spoiler alert obviously. Although if this spoils anything for you, then shame on you. Watch "Walter White and the Amazing Blue Crystal Meth" below!

2013 NFL Picks Week 1

I've decided to bring back a popular feature from last year, and will be doing NFL picks for the full 2013-2014 season! I finished last year at 135-72-1 (65%) picking games from week 4 onward. In the playoffs, I finished 7-4 (about 64%) which was right on par with my regular season average. I'm looking to improve my accuracy this year, but I will say that anything over 50% isn't too bad. I'm doing away with the "confidence" numbers from last year, but I will be continuing to pick the winners of each game straight up with no spread. Be sure to check back next week (Tuesday or Wednesday) for more NFL Picks; click the tag below to view picks from previous weeks. Without further ado:

Thursday, 8:30pm
Baltimore Ravens at Denver Broncos
Sunday, 1pm
Kansas City Chiefs at Jacksonville Jaguars
Seattle Seahawks at Carolina Panthers
Oakland Raiders at Indianapolis Colts
Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions
Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New York Jets

Video removed from YouTube unfortunately! Instead, here's another "Breaking Seinfeld" video that isn't nearly as good as the removed one.
