The Weekend Hotness: Lazy arms

As Jim showed us this past weekend, anything cane be compared to Citizen Kane. You just have to forcefully shove it down people’s throat and they’ll eventually buy what you have to say.

QuakeCon schedule is live, there is wine all by the sea, moley moley moley, 50 Cent will be appearing in Modern Warfare 2 and plenty more happened over the weekend.
