    Sony's been the 8-Bit Generation now for, at least, half a decade but, at some point, everyone has to move onto to the next level of product crippling.

    So Bundesliga went to the cutouts in lieu of empty seats. Except, they weren't the real size cutouts. Just five-foot mugs of someone who may have once sat in the same seat. It gave a bit more of...

    I've been saying this for a long time now. I also compared it to the early 1990's when Fox came on the air and the Paramount Network and WB were also gearing up for the debuts. And, all of a...

    I didn't feel like starting a new thread. So, HBO Max is about to launch (on the 27th). It might carry an HBO moniker, but it's essentially a Warner Brothers streaming service, with a huge library...

    There is no "w" letter or sound in Russian (the sane goes for "th", as it's often transcribed as "t"). So Meel-u-oki has to often suffice. To take this further, my dad was often reluctant to open...
