Billy Mays calls out Vince (NVGR)

About a month I started a poll on the forums to help me settle a bet with a couple pals. The argument started while watching tv with a couple of friends when back to back commercials of Billy Mays selling mighty putty and Vince selling shamwow came on. As you can imagine this spawned what some might call the greatest debate of all time. Who is the greatest salesman in history?

Sides were quickly picked, some chose the bearded messianic figure Billy Mays while others chose the crafty upstart Vince. Barbs were thrown back and forth mocking headsets, voice volume, and the true quality of German products. Then the argument took an unforeseen turn when the phrase "They ain't got shit on Ron Popeil" was uttered. This brought up questions like "Why would I want to make my own pasta?" and "When was the last time you drove by a pond and had the urgent desire to fish?". So the poll was born, mainly to settle a bet, more importantly to decide who was the greatest salesman of all time.

As is the case in life, the plebeians squabbled in their hut while the kings fought on the battlefield. Some shit went down at the Super Bowl, and Billy Mays is pissed. He retells the story during an interview on the Adam Carolla Show and goes on a tirade about how Vince is knocking off his products. It all culminates when Billy calls out Vince and challenges him to a Pitch Off. Check out the clip then vote on the poll. Who is the highlander of salesman, for there can be only one.

Mass Effect 2 gets a launch window. Arrested Developer gets a boner.

What glorious news, I must say. Even Jim Sterling and his terrible taste in games can't ruin today because Mass Effect 2 has been given a launch window. Sure it's not an exact date and yes it's about a year away but early 2010 is a good enough start for me.

More of this please

EA didn't say much more on the subject but did mention that it will be multplatform and balls deep awesome.   read

LNL: Voldo is a Smooth Criminal

I've seen a lot of choreographed game dances in my day, but this has to be the most elaborate I've ever seen. It seems Voldo of Soul Calibur has more in common with Michael Jackson then just his love for boys.

GTA 4 DLC Dated and Discussed

Rockstar will be leaving Niko behind in the upcoming GTA DLC entitled "The Lost and Damned". 360 players will take the roll of Johnny Klebitz a member of the biker gang The Lost (Remember you chased down one of them and killed him for messing around with someones daughter?).

According to Dan Houser "Johnny is a very different character than Niko, with a very different background. I can't go into too much detail on the story, because we try not to give away too much plot before the game is released. But I can say that the story will show yo.u a different side of Liberty City."

No price has been announced yet (gaming insiders are predicting $15-$20), but the DLC is slated to come out on Feb. 17 (Winter 2008 my ass) so you have plenty of time to start saving up penny's

It's been promised for months now and it's finally out. For $9.99 on iTunes you can get the soundtrack to Joss Whedon's writers strike project, Dr. Horrible's Sing-along blog, a soundtrack so good it will make you think that Neil Patrick Harris is actually interested in getting into Felcia Day's panties.

(NVGR) Arrested Development Movie "for sure" Also, awesome A.D. Clips

I rarely check Aint it Cool news but for some reason today I checked and was rewarded with the greatest news of all time. In a recent interview Jeffery Tambor (George Bluth) was quoted in saying:

“After months of speculation, I think we have finally figured out for sure that we are indeed doing an Arrested Development movie, I am very excited about that. I love that cast and crew and I felt like we had more to say."

Thank you little eight pound six ounce baby Jesus, laying in your manger with your golden diaper, now just let me live long enough to see this come to fruition.

Now for something completely different ,
(not actually completely different)
