Today we gather to bid farewell to the year 2010. It was a fun year overall and now it’s time to send 2010 off with the obligatory year-in-review. I need to warn you that this is extremely biased as it’s stuff I thought was great.
You may be familiar with the name Four Loko. This is an 12% abv, 23oz alcoholic drink that allegedly gives you the effect of drinking 4 beers or glasses of wine or even 4 1/2 shots of vodka, but has enough of an energy kick that’s equal to 3 cups of coffee. Naturally this mix of uppers and downers made the FDA pretty angry and as a result the drink has been banned in several states, with others not wanting to even bother selling it. So naturally, I’ve decided to make Four Loko part of our random reviews.
Well it’s that time again true-believers. It’s that magical time of the year when the clock ticks closer to Christmas and the tree already has presents underneath….that is all but the presents you’ve bought. Naturally this means a cram-session at the stores to knock out everyone on your list. This is exactly how last-minute creativity or very very bad mistakes come into play. To avoid the latter from happening, we at PopCultureAsylum.com are doing our part and creating this list of well meaning presents that usually turn out to be a bad gift, so that you become a hero this Christmas morning.
Is it just me or have scientists just suddenly become senile bastards? In the last few years slowly but surely, science has been destroying every little thing we’ve learned in Elementary. First Pluto was kicked out of the solar system a few years back, and this year, scientists have tried to destroy dinosaurs as we know them.
So we are merely days away from the end of the first season of AMC’s The Walking Dead. If you’ve followed us on Facebook, you’ll know that we’ve been just a little bit excited about this show hitting the air. The show has shattered cable ratings and has given us some quality TV for the last month, mostly because the show comes off as a new zombie movie every week. The show’s been impressive enough that I will officially declare it my “LOST Replacement”.
