Hold the phone! Minecraft goes VR!

I just mortgaged a kidney to afford a VR-ready Alienware desktop – but even that’s not ‘VR-ready’ at the moment, because getting your hands on a HTC Vive or Oculus Rift headset is harder than getting a decent movie out of Adam Sandler. But VR fans needn’t worry – there’s a stop-gap. The folks at […]

Hi, I’m Militant_Ginger and apparently I’m Echoba.se’s resident Realtor. Today, up for grabs, is the Long Island abode of the infamous ‘Amityville Horror.’ The sight of a tragic 1974 mass murder, this south shore home was the subject of a best-selling book and two hit movies; all based around the hauntings that plagued a family […]

The other week was stand-up central for me. I saw Louis CK playing at Asbury Park, and the following day I taped a late-afternoon session at Stand Up New York.

“Call me Shang-Chi, as my father did when he raised me and molded my mind and my body in the vacuum of his Honan, China retreat. I learned many things from my father: That my name means ‘The Rising and Advancing of a Spirit’, that my body could be forged into a living weapon through […]

Today we’ve got Jason Lutz, otherwise known by his stage name ‘Mister E’. His Facebook page lists him as a Program Specialist at Sparc Services, a Professional Freak at Mister E, and a Producer at Dead Flowers. I’ve also known him to be an art […]

According to this report from MiceChat, a very reputable source for all things Disney News, there are some major changes taking place at DisneyLand Resort / Disney California Adventure Park. Apparently they’re in the midst of a big budget cut to make numbers look better for Wall Street investors. What this has translated to so far […]
