I know I am very late in doing this, but you know, better late than never.

The leaked video was for a teaser trailer for PlayStation 3 “Long Live Play” Commercial. There are no surprises to be made from this, it’s just a commercial. There was no end to my disappointment, which explains why it took me this long to do an update (Well, not really).

For your viewing pleasure, I added the full commercial below:

It has just been brought to my attention that there is an internet censorship bill; which consist of S.O.P.A (Stop Online Piracy Act) and Protect IP. And if either passes, we could see a lot of our favorite websites end up being shut down. Not only that, it would become a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are an ordinary noncommercial user. Now I don’t won’t to pretend like I know whats going on with this. I’m still trying to wrap my head around it. But what I do know is that many of my favorite blogs, podcasts, web-videos, web-comics, etc could end up censored or just shut down. And that is something I will not stand for, and that’s why I’m doing what I can to stop this from happening, and you can too.

Here is a video explaining the situation:

And because I am terrible at explaining politics, the following text has been taken from ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com‘s Nostalgia Critic:

[So what can you do?
If you’re a citizen of the United States, call your local representatives.  Calling and letter writing will always work better than email.  If you don’t know their number , use this site:

Read up on the law so you can be informed of what is going on:

Also, on a closing note, please don’t think that these bills have no chance of passing, because they do.  They have some powerful people backing it, and they’re trying to push it through as quickly as possible. Even if these bills are only used to target ‘rogue’ foreign sites as it states, it will establish a precedent for future bills. If we don’t stop these bills now, how can we ever hope to stop them in the future?

Would you rather possibly overreact now, or have to worry about the possibility of these laws passing and what it could do to many of your favorite sites down the line?]

By spreading the word, I feel I’ve helped bring this whole thing closer to coming to an end. Because the more people who know, the more people who can fight it. And fight it I will.

BREAKING NEWS!!!

While surfing the interwebs, like I always do, I skipped onto some gold. Apparently Kevin Butler has made a tweet about some secret PSN is going to reveal soon. Here’s the tweet:

And if you want to see the video he leaked, look no further:

And if you notice it, there are many many PlayStation exclusive game references littered throughout the video. (Hint: look to the right before the soldiers walk into the building. Doesn’t that truck look alittle sweet-toothy to you?). So what can this be? Some kind of new PSN service, a new feature to PlayStation Home, or maybe it can be Playstation’s answer to SUPER SMASH BROS. I guess we will find out on 10-5-2011. I kind of want to see a PS Smash Bros., I wonder how that would be?

For more information, follow this link: What Is Kevin Butler Hinting At?

And I will update when I find out more.

I’m a big fan of nostalgia. I think that’s why I enjoy shows like The Nostalgia Critic and Angry Video Game Nerd, people telling what they enjoyed in the past, whether it be from television or gaming, is an automatic win to me. That’s one of the reasons why I created that Top Ten List. Well, that and the fact that I heard that Top Ten List are an easy ways to gain viewers. But I have recently found out that the host of a few of my favorite podcasts, Dame Dr. Foxy Brown, has posted a blog responding to my Top Ten List. And I’m loving it; like I said, I love hearing about what cartoons people loved. I just have moments like, “Cool, I liked that show too” or “Aww man, I thought I was the only one who liked that show.” If you want to read her blog post yourself:

 The Cartoons that Shaped Me or My Cartoons are Better than Yours Part 1

And that’s just part one, it looks like she has some more up her sleeves. I know we all have different taste when it comes to television and the like, so I look forward to what other shows she has in store.

Once again, it’s time for a Weckyboy Moment. Where I talk about what’s on the top of my mind at the moment.

Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana, she is a terrific actress. And she’s hot too, I might add. But people, why do you pronounce her name as “Zoey,” when it clearly should be pronounced “Zoh.” I mean, when you read the name Joe, you don’t pronounce it as “Joey” do you? So please people, when you are pronouncing her name, say “Zoh.”

This has been a Weckyboy Moment.

A while back, it had came to my attention that there is a bit of One Piece merchandise available in Japan that I would love to get my hands on. When it comes to anime merchandise, things likes models or character figures don’t really get my attention (I must admit, I’m a sucker for a well made poster though). But nice anime clothing is something that would definitely catch my attention. When I was younger I use to rock a Dragon Ball Z t-shirt any chance I could, up until I out grew it. So when I saw these:

One Piece fitted caps

I wanted to know how can I get one, where can I find these? Especially the Luffy cap, that’s the one I’m really looking for, although the Chopper cap is good too. And so I began to search through the inter-webs for these items,  and besides a few Japanese websites, the search came up dry. But I am still keeping an eye out for these caps, I’m hoping sites like JList; which are known for having Japanese items like this, will have them available one day. Until then, the search continues.
