The Entertation Index: December 18

December 18, 2009

Arts, Electronic — Videogame maker EA Sports has nay-sayed reports that they’ll be dropping Tiger Woods from its very successful Tiger Woods Golf franchise after Woods’ recent indiscretions. Apparently, the game is up to fifteen cheat codes now.

Field, Soldier — The upcoming debut issue of Marvel Comic’s new title Siege sees a team of supervillains blowing up Chicago’s Soldier Field during a game. Pick your punch line: a.) This only seems like a fitting end; the Bears have been holding fans hostage for years. b.) The bomb detonated by the villains is second only to the size of the recurring one which takes the field every Sunday.

Handel, George Frederick — The British Museum has uploaded images of the draft score to Handel’s infamous Messiah in it’s online gallery, hand written by the composer himself. The most revealing thing about this? Handel dotted his eyes with hearts and wrote the Hallelujah Chorus in puffy paint.

Simpson, Jessica — The pop singer is allegedly considering legal action after the tabloid Star magazine linked her romantically to Tiger Woods, yesterday using her twitter account to announce:  “Can’t believe that I’m on the cover of star magazine with Tiger Woods, what a JOKE! ‘The Shocking Inside Story’ is (insert drumroll) A LIE!” Simpson then went on to explain “I’m completely capable of ensnaring my own professional athletes for publicity, thank you, and I don’t need Star magazine’s help.” Then she tried to say something “adorably dumb” but nobody cared anymore.

Technology, Movies About — CNN has deftly put together a fascinating list of the “9 Worst Tech Movies” of all time. On the list are movies like Antitrust, Hackers and The Net — you know, movies that are loosely and exaggeratedly built around the idea of what the internet can do. Understandable. Number one on the list? Weird Science. Does CNN really think that people out there believe that feeding pictures of playboy centerfolds and lingerie into a computer will create a human being? Thanks for clearing that up, guys. Also, nine? Really? Hell of a list there.

Wild Hogs 2 — Plans and efforts to make a sequel to the John Travolta/Tim Allen ensemble film Wild Hogs, tentatively titled Wild Hogs 2: Bachelor Ride. If you need me, I’ll be crying in the basement and shredding all the Wild Hogs fan fiction I’ve been writing for two years. I thought Christmas was a time for miracles. Hope your weekend is better, everyone.
