Cool Shit 2/6

Interview with Norman Reedus, better known as Daryl on The Walking Dead.

Corporate spies. It sounds so silly when you attempt to define what it is, but apparently it's big business. because, you know people coming up with new ideas to do things is so crazy!

Valentine's Day is coming up. I know some of you will rant about how it's simply a manufactured holiday to keep the Hallmark card industry relevant. And maybe you're right. But perhaps some of these more unusual cards will lighten your cold, dark heart.

On the heels of learning there might be a standalone movie about Yoda, we now get rumors about movies about Han Solo and Boba Fett. I can understand (and potentially get excited for a Han Solo movie), but Bob Fett? Haven't we pretty much gotten his story? Oh sure, it can be fleshed out with some stuff, (I would look forward to scenes where he just continually runs into stormtroopers sans helmets and has to call them "Dads" all the time), but the appeal of Boba Fett in Empire Strikes Back was that there was mystery surrounding him. The more they flesh out his character, the lamer he becomes.

A brilliant breakdown of the new Fast and the Furious trailer from Bill Simmons (The Sports Guy).

There is a place in Nairobi that sells Playstation 2 games. But not just any games - hacked, mashup games. I'm still not sure what's going on, but I do know A.) I want at least one of these games, and B.) The building this store is in sounds utterly awesome and terrifying.
