Apple is holding a press conference to unveil the new iPhone today, which means it’s a slow news day for everyone else who doesn’t give a shit.
Here are five things that are not iPhone 5 that I’m choosing to give my full, undivided attention to:
#1 — The Release of ‘Double Dragon Neon’
Just released yesterday, this newest Double Dragon game is the 1980’s-themed old school beat’em up I’ve been anticipating all summer. To pump myself up, I’ve been listening to the totally bitchin’ soundtrack all day. As soon as I get home from work tonight I’ll be kicking ass and high-fiving anyone/anything that can be high-fived.
#2 — The Brand New ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Trailer
#3 — The 25 Greatest Moments in TMNT History
Mark from TMNT Entity recently posted a really fantastic two-part countdown of the “25 Greatest Moments in TMNT History” over at Adventures in Poor Taste, complete with lots of images, quotes, anecdotes, and Mark’s own personal fan reactions. It’s quite lengthy but well worth the read. If you’re a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan or someone who’s not as familiar with all the various TMNT universes and want to learn more, it’s a must-read. Here’s Part 1 and Part 2 .
#4 — This couch.
I want to say this is glorious, but glorious isn’t a strong enough word.
#5 — The World Trade Center in Movies
This wonderful site is a database of every movie the iconic twin towers of the World Trade Center appears in, organized by decade. For every movie listed, the site tells you where in the movie the WTC appears, and clicking the links will show you a screenshot. For example, the image above (if you haven’t recognized it already) is from the opening shot of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie from 1990.
How about you? Are you foaming at the mouth for every new tidbit of Apple-related news today…or not?
