The Last Story is coming to the Wii on June 19th, and we must say, it looks pretty damn good. Check it out at IGN.

This is the Machete Viewing Order for the Star Wars films, and it's got very well-thought-out reasons behind it. Give it a try, if for no other reason than it excises The Phantom Menace from the series altogether.

Read up on Before Watchmen over at Wikipedia, and tell us what you think of the idea.

6 trillion miles per light year X 600 light years =
360,000,000,000,000 miles (360 trillion)
/17,500 mph (space shuttle max speed to sustain orbit)
=20,571,428,571 hours (I am leaving off decimal points JUST BECAUSE OKAY)
/24 hours in a day = 857,142,857 days
/365 days in a year = 2,348,336 years to reach Kepler-22b via space shuttle.
The "40" came from forgetting to multiply somewhere, because I am bad at math and this is why I don't work for NASA.


Dear listeners:

It saddens us to inform you that one of us has recently experienced a terrible tragedy. Brandi, a.k.a. sirius20_81, recently gave birth to a baby girl named Leelu Shea. Tragically, Leelu died less than an hour after she was born due to complications in her heart.

We at Made Of Fail consider our listeners our extended family, and we try very hard to take care of our own. So we're doing a donation drive to help Brandi and her family. We can't turn back time and make everything better, but what we can do is try to make day-to-day things a little easier while she and her family take the time to grieve. We hope this will help take care of things like hospital and medical bills, funeral arrangements for Leelu, and any other care the family needs.

If you cannot donate money, please repost this wherever you can, and leave a comment expressing your sympathies and/or prayers. You are in our thoughts, Brandi, and we hope this helps even the tiniest bit.


Episode Forty-Eight: And Then the Werewolf Fell In Love With the WAIT WHAT

Episode 48 is live!


Thanks to our Senior Sparkle Correspondent Cleolinda Jones for joining us this month, as well as Noel from I Hate/Love Remakes and our glutton for punishment K.C.!

Cleo has Breaking Dawn In Fifteen Minutes up on her blog, and she just knocked it out of the park.

Doug Walker, a.k.a. That Guy With the Glasses has also done a really great video review of Breaking Dawn, with >9000% more rage! (Also a Bum Review, but we're pointing to his actual review.)

MarzGurl has been picking apart the first Twilight novel rather effectively, if you feel like going back to basics. A more innocent time, if you will.

This isn't mentioned in the episode, but Robert Pattinson is the greatest Twilight troll of all time and we just had to share it.

If you can't get to a comic shop to check out any titles, you can go to Comixology and buy them there!

By the way, the Saints beat the Panthers 30-27.

Auction #1 - Catharsis

So, hey, did you enjoy playing Final Fantasy XIII? Really? Good, me neither. To that end, I cleansed it with fire.

Part 1 Part 2

The Aftermath and Auction:

The disc is blackened beautifully (New Orleans-style!) with a gorgeous vein of sparkly gold running down the top rim. Also, it's Final Fantasy XIII after being set on fire. The perfect gift for anyone who felt betrayed by the sheer awfulness of this game!

I will personally autograph it with whatever you want. Shipping ONLY to continental U.S.
