And now onto EDC. John and Sheena attended, but due to an appointment John had with the Clark County courthouse (i.e. jury duty) they elected to skip the final day and instead, provide us with their account of the blazing music and light-filled party. If you’re not a fan of dub step, you might not enjoy EDC as much as you might think as John explains on today’s show.
I went shoe shopping, as I said I would in last week’s show notes. And I noticed something about the shoe selections these days. I share that and brag a little about the ones I did pick up finally. They’re DC Shoes. Yeah, I know, skater shoes… but I have a very logical, if not frugal reason why I wear them.
Believe it or not, there are actual news events for us to discuss. You wouldn’t know it since it takes about 30-minutes before we start in on them; but they are there. First up, a recap of E3! If there’s really anything to recap… I’m lookin’ at you Nintendo. We could spend hours going over the expo with a fine-toothed comb, but we only got one. So we focus on the big three, or rather two-and-a-half. Nintendo left attendees incredibly underwhelmed… again… with an hour long presentation on a game that’s been out for over a year. Then with the unimpressive and quite obvious announcement that they’ve tweaked the Wii U so that it’ll support two of those tablet gamepad controller deals. They STILL didn’t announce a price for the damn thing OR a release date. We do know it’s coming this winter and we do know that Nintendo needs help badly.
Meanwhile, Microsoft didn’t announce a new Xbox — which those of us with common sense knew they wouldn’t — but instead showed off some new games, features and an app to improve the current user experience on the 360. The app is called SmartGlass and it’ll allow you to access extra content on your mobile device that relates to what’s going on on your Xbox at the same time. It may even offer some sort of control functionality from your phone or tablet as well.
And Sony didn’t have a ton of wow factor either. They showcased some new PS3 games and offered up a new game peripheral called Wonderbook that seems to be aimed at the younger crowd. It allows them to basically have an interactive story time with their television.
A nonprofit called Little People of America is ticked off over the casting choices made by Universal Studios in the new SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN film. Full sized actors were chosen to portray the seven dwarfs. I don’t remember a fuss like this being made over THE LORD OF THE RINGS. Many of the actors chosen to play hobbits and the dwarf, Gimli in that trilogy were not little people. They were digitally manipulated to look small as well. Nevertheless, the organization wants Hollywood to try harder at finding dwarf actors to play these ‘small’ parts. More puns where that came from.
We wrap with Breaking News from the east coast where a pastor named Dollar gets arrested for choking his 15 year-old daughter. And a 15 year-old girl in Orlando is forced to change out of her Tinker Bell costume she worked her magic on for months before being allowed to enter Disney World.
