> Want a one-stop destination (on the internet, don’t worry, fatty) for tons of bands that you and your friends don’t know about (yet)? Well, your wish is Kaitis’s command. Just don’t make it a command-Q! Oh, snap! Reviewer Kaitis Categories Websites…


Portal: Still Alive (XBLA)

GLaDOS may still be alive, but it doesn’t make any new appearances in Portal: Still Alive. So what’s the point of that title? I don’t know. Maybe Portal itself, as in the game, is “still alive” and it’s supposed to be funny. Haha.


Roxio Toast 9 Titanium (Mac)

Burn, watch, listen and share. Those are the four main activities you’ll partake in using Roxio’s Toast 9 Titanium. Could this be the best all-encompassing media center software available (for Mac users)? Probably. How? I have a few ideas…


Death To Smoochy

Death To Smoochy was basically a box-office flop. It’s not bad, though, people just didn’t get it. It’s up to you to get it! Jump on in if you think you can do it, if you’re “ready to pursue a show of Smoochy caliber,” to quote the Rhino.


Chocolate News (S01E01)

Chocolate News debuted recently on Comedy Central. It’s a show starring David Alan Grier with an unapologetically Black perspective on the world, and, quite frankly, it’s funny. It’s also a much better outlet for Grier’s talent than Jumanji.


Call of Duty: World At War Beta Hands-On

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare lit the war game genre on fire last year, at least in part because it was set in the current day, not WWII, like almost every other. Personally, I wanna see a good Vietnam game. Until then, Matt has the pre-details on COD5.


The Sarah Silverman Program (S02E12)

If you hate Osama Bin Laden, this is the episode of the show for you. Especially if you want to take him out by means of an automobile. Although if you do that, you may end up like Sarah, getting all of your possessions with wheels on them taken away from you.

James May’s Big Ideas (S01E03)

The previous two episodes of James May’s Big Ideas were so out there and fun to watch. How will the third episode stack up? The subject is energy — wind, solar, water — all those crrrrrraaaazzyyyyy elements that no one uses but could help us power the planet.


The Strangers

School and parents tried to tell me that strangers are bad, and they may try to give you candy, but if my mouth has any say in it that’s definitely a good thing. I don’t think that’s the kind of stranger that this movie is about though… I didn’t see any children.


Guns N’ Roses – Chinese Democracy (Single)

I didn’t think Chinese Democracy, or any piece of it, would ever see the light of day. Like John Locke, I was wrong. Unlike Jack Shephard, I will not lie to everyone. My thoughts and impressions, as well as a stream of the song, await you after the jump.
