Memorial Day weekend is here, the un-officially official start to Summer! So to give you some fun stuff to read and some awesome ideas to make your day of much-deserved R&R perfect, we rounded up our best Memorial Day material in one handy, dandy post!
It is crucial to know a few things about the new Nickelodeon cartoon series “Sanjay and Craig.” It is about a boy with a pet snake. It talks … and sometimes puts on a wig and human clothes when the radically awesome duo embark on occasionally gross-out adventures like witnessing a butt transplant or having a barf off. And they are in the best friends hall of fame. There is no best friends hall of fame (they made it up!).
There's big news in the world of fandom this week as Amazon announced its Kindle Worlds program. It's a program in which anyone can submit a story to Amazon for electronic publication via the Kindle and receive a portion of the proceeds for every one that's sold. While this may sound like something they've been doing for quite some time (it is) the significant part of this story is that Amazon has teamed up wtih Alloy Entertainment to allow these stories to be about intellectual properties that ran on television. Currently "Gossip Girl," "Pretty Little Liars," and "The Vampire Diaries" with promises of more licenses to come later. The upshot of this announcement is that you can get paid to legally write "Vampire Diaries" fan fiction.
This Memorial Day, many of you will be getting away for some well-deserved R&R. Some of you might head to the beach, some of you might take in the wonders of a national park, while some of you might just hang in the hammock in the backyard. Whichever destination you choose, hopefully you stay far away from these hellholes...because you can end up eaten by a dinosaur, murdered in a shower, munched on by a zombie, or WORSE!
These are the 10 WORST places to spend Memorial Day Weekend!
With Memorial Day weekend upon us and endless summer days looming about, it’s time to get our minds off responsibilities like work and school and head out for some fun. While the beach is an ideal hot spot this time of year, it’d be even better if you could hit the sand with the following characters.
If he had his way Mix Master Mike, one of the most celebrated DJs of our day, would be fighting giant monsters amid the Tokyo skyline.
Instead he’s a superhero behind the turntables, having arguably garnered the most attention for his enduring stint as DJ for the Beastie Boys. He appeared on three of the influential rap group’s studio albums, including its final disc, 2011’s “Hot Sauce Committee Part Two.”
These days Mix Master Mike is working magic all over the place, and recently got his geek on by giving the “Teen Titans” TV theme song a makeover. Mix Master Mike’s take on the tune is tagged to the new animated comedy “Teen Titans Go!,” which airs 7:30 p.m. EDT Tuesdays on Cartoon Network.
It's a packed week of new releases, with a pair of Studio Ghibli titles hitting Blu-ray in North America (along with "True Blood's" weakest season to date), while Magnet pumps out a big, bloody, brash horror anthology and delivers some kickass Thai martial arts action.
