Mario Kart 8 DLC Announced: Link, F-Zero, Excitebike, And Animal Crossing!

Shortly after waking up this morning, I turned on the Wii U to download the Mario Kart 8 patch that dropped today.  The patch was supposed to bring online stabilization, a mini-map for the TV screen (as opposed to just the GamePad), and three Mercedes-Benz cars.  It ended up bringing so much more along with it.

Yes, that is indeed Link, Isabelle, and a Villager from Animal Crossing.  Those are the two announced DLC packs for Mario Kart 8.  They aren't just bringing a few new characters along for the ride though.

Godzilla '98 Stickers

A few months ago, I found a few sheets of stickers for the stinkfest that is Godzilla (the 1998 version starring Matthew Broderick).  This is also the movie that is getting the RiffTrax treatment in a special live show on August 14 (a.k.a. tomorrow).  I have been wanting to post these for a while, and I figure now is as good a time as any.

Strawberry MLB Pop-Tarts Part 2

When I did my original post about these trading card Pop-Tarts, I was toying around with the idea of buying another box of them, just to see what I would end up with.  Today, the opportunity to do just that presented itself in the form of my son, who told me he wanted some strawberry Pop-Tarts.

To catch you up to speed, here is my checklist as of the first post:

Still hoping to get the Tigers!

My Top Ten RiffTrax VoD Releases

As regular readers of this site know, I am an avid fan of RiffTrax.  In fact, I enjoy watching RiffTrax videos almost more than watching anything on TV.

This time of year is great for us RiffTrax fans, because we are right in the middle of the RiffTrax Live season.  The live riff of Sharknado was outstanding, and I am really anticipating upcoming Godzilla '98, Anaconda, and unannounced Christmas Riff (rumored to be Santa & The Ice Cream Bunny).  Couple that with the barrage of VoDs and Shorts that RiffTrax has been releasing, and you have before you a happy man (with a sad wallet).

Because of this near euphoric state I find myself in, and with some of the recent VoDs that have been absolutely bonkers, I decided it was time to make an updated list of my top favorite VoD releases.

Now, I have done some lists before of RiffTrax VoD essentials, but those have all been movies that I think every RiffTrax fan should see.  They were not necessarily in my top ten.
