Although the blizzard last night wasn’t quite as historic or catastrophic as meteorologists had predicted, many northerners are still likely stuck at home while their cities power back on throughout the day.

If you’re in one of those cities, you’re probably looking for something to do today, which is why we’ve put together a list of highlights from the release schedule on Netflix over the last couple of month to check out while you sit around the house with all of that food and alcohol you bought to get you through the “storm of the century.” More →

Paul McCartney teams with Kanye, Rihanna to deliver a generation-spanning hit single

Hercules Universal DJ Review

This $250 box made me a DJ

This $250 box made me a DJ

By on January 23, 2015 at 10:00 AM.

I can’t tell you how old I feel right now. I can remember it like it was yesterday though, carrying a crate of drum and bass records down the hall in my college dorm and practicing on my friend’s turntables. Actual vinyl records on actual Technics 1200 decks. People would funnel in and out of the room, some to hang out and enjoy the music, others to complain about having to study for exams.

It was a great time, and now people can experience the same thing without having to dump $1,500, $2,000 or even more on a rig. No, these days it only costs $250 to be a DJ. More →

You can finally stream ‘The Interview’ on Netflix beginning Saturday

Netflix absolutely crushed its earnings on Tuesday evening and shares skyrocketed more than 17% in after-hours trading as a result. The company added 4.33 million new streaming subscribers during the fourth quarter of 2014, and profit climbed to $83.4 million, up from $48.4 million in the year-ago quarter. Netflix had a great quarter indeed, and it was thanks in large part to some great new content that hit the service over the course of the three-month period. Now, the company has confirmed that another high-profile title will finally arrive on its digital shelves in just a few short days.

Sorry, North Korea. More →

Watch the Hobbit trilogy the way it was meant to be seen with this spectacular fan edit

The story of The Hobbit didn’t need to be stretched out to fill three feature-length films, but that’s what the studio decided to do. Personally, I enjoyed all three movies, but I would love nothing more than to be able to travel back in time and tell Peter Jackson what needed to be cut to make for a well paced adventure.

Every member of the X-Men has been collected into one awesome video

With all the hype surrounding The Avengers, you might have forgotten that another superhero team made the reemergence of comic book movies possible in the first place. Back in 2000, the first X-Men movie launched to critical acclaim and financial success, but despite having produced six sequels and spin-offs up to now, you’re still probably not acquainted with everyone who has ever joined Professor Xavier’s team.

The latest such scandal has been dubbed “DeflateGate” and it involves the Patriots allegedly tampering with footballs during the game in a way that would have made it easier for quarterback Tom Brady to throw them in the rain.
