Sometimes a show has a great first couple of episodes and fades away as the season continues. The opposite is true of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” It just keeps getting better. Amelia thinks Alana will grow up to be the “funniest comedian that ever lived.” I agree. And, here in the office, we’re kicking around the idea that June is a sex positive feminist and doesn’t even know it. Oh, all the things I’m learning from this show. After the jump, some more nuggets of wisdom from last night including FORKLIFT FOOT. Keep reading »

When I heard that Harlem-born rapper and lyricist Azealia Banks’s cover of art and fashion mag Dazed & Confused had been banned in seven countries before the issue even hit stands, I anticipated something infinitely more vulgar than her flipping off the camera as she inflates/fellates a condom. I mean, that’s practically some Taylor Swift shit when it comes to the songstress who penned “212,” an explicit ode to cunnilingus. People are so sensitive. [NYMag.com]

You’d think that by 2012 game designers would have stopped insulting our intelligence by giving us female characters with gigantic conical boobs and tiny there’s-no-way-she-has-any-internal-organs waists. You’d think they would have created some virtual woman we can get behind. You’d especially think that since it’s been shown female gamers outnumber male gamers, designers would respect their audience and do everything in their power not to alienate us.

Well, of course you’d be wrong.

In a recent interview with website Eurogamer, John Hemingway, lead game designer of popular first-person shooter Borderlands 2, revealed his studio Gearbox was developing a new female character for B2 with a very … unusual skill tree.
