    We have no idea what inspired the 1986 Dodgers to make "The Baseball Boogie", which we bring to you via our sexy friends at WithLeather. Maybe it was the previous year's "Super Bowl Shuffle" phenomena. Maybe Pedro Guerrero was so bursting with creativity that the rest of the team got caught up in his enthusiasm. Maybe they knew that they would finish second-to-last that year, so they figured they it'd be more constructive to...

    The Billionaires for Bush have finally placed their bejeweled slippers into that arena of the peasant, the 2008 election, with this powerful video. These heroes are alerting the mud-farmers and illiterates of this Wondrous Nation that if they believe they can finally get the change in America, No, They Can't....

    It's pretty simple- he got the most states and the most delegates. That's it. Sure, Hillary had her voting demographic victories last night, with Hillary keeping Latino support and Hillary did get New York and California, but at the end of the day those things are only important as the delegates they get you. Clinton's Northeast Sweep didn't pan out as well as hoped, with Connecticut going to Barack. Speaking of Connecticut, Obama had...

    For my money, the best overall ad campaign for the Super Bowl was Garmin's last year. The initial ad above is great, but what makes the campaign stand out is all the additional web only stuff, including surprisingly funny interviews with the ad's heroes and villains and a music video from Steve "Grim Reaper" Grimmett(!) Catch the extra videos after the jump....

    In a couple hours, the Iowa caucuses- or Hawkeye Caucii, if you prefer- will be starting, and that means we're off to the races for a new President. Are we the only ones screaming WTF at this? Why on Earth does Iowa get to have such a crucial role in our electoral system. Why on Earth should a state with about a fourth of the people of L.A. County get the first say in who...

    So, here we are. Living in the crazy post-Office/Pushing Daisies/30 Rock world that none of us wanted, and of course it's only about to get worse. With shows falling off like Bud Selig's credibility (zing!), the time to start seeking out alternatives is now. Of course we've already given you a good start, but believe me when I say those recommendations are the tip of the television iceberg. Lucky for you, I have the...

    It was the day of the Mitchell Report And all through the house, Not a ballplayer was boozing, Not even Nancy, the louse The lawyers were called from Sidekicks with care In fear that St. George would soon be there. The players were all fearful on their mistresses beds, Visions of subpoenas dancing in their heads; Bud in his kerchief, and Boras in his cap Had just settled down for a post-Winter Meetings nap....

    While most video/computer games are fun, they rarely enter the arena of the philosophical. Via Kotaku, we're happy to present you with an amazing exception to this- Passage. It's a game about life and death, told through pixels. We'd better let Jason Rohrer, the game's creator, explain it. Passage represents life's challenges with a maze. The screen geometry only allows you to view a narrow slice of this maze at any given moment. You...
