One of my favorite casual racing games, Forza Horizon, will be coming to Windows! I’m so excited! It was one of the very few games that I played on a console and I was never able to play the second one as I don’t own an Xbox One and it was an ugly port for the Xbox 360.

Solé Bicycles of all people have been putting out some really great mixtapes, “Fixtapes” as they call them, every month by various artists.

Props to my co-worker Sara Rosso for getting me hooked on these!
James Bond SPECTRE Teaser Trailer
A teaser trailer for the upcoming James Bond film. Don’t worry, there’s not much in the way of spoilers.
I can’t wait to see it!
If You Aren’t Watching “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”, You Should Be
John Oliver of The Daily Show fame has been hosting his new show on HBO for a little over five months now. If you haven’t been watching it, you really should be.
While The Daily Show often covers important topics, it doesn’t have the opportunity to do so in depth because it’s hampered by the fact that there are commercials and guests cutting into the air time.
John Oliver however dives deep into just one or two subjects to make a much stronger point about the subject being covered. He has no guests or commercials.
For example his latest episode had a really striking piece about asset civil forfeiture by police. While that sounds dry and boring, he makes the subject matter compelling and tops it off with a bit of comedy to bring it home. Trust me — it’s worth watching this video until the end.
The outtakes are worth watching too.
WordPress Appearance On “Orphan Black”
In the latest episode of the great TV show Orphan Black, a character is searching for something on the Internet and is for some reason viewing search results in the form of HTML (ooo, what a hacker!). If you look at the stylesheet URLs, you’ll notice “wp-content”, a sign that it’s a WordPress-powered site!
Before you bother to check, the domain is registered in real life but there’s no site there, WordPress or otherwise.

“Lucy” Movie Trailer
Luc Besson’s latest film looks like it’s going to be pretty good:
WordPress.com On Jeopardy!
WordPress.com, the primary product of the company I work for, was featured in an answer on Jeopardy! last night. Very cool.
The question is “What is a blog?”.
UPDATE: My co-worker Matt Thomas has a video of it over on his blog.
“Orphan Black” Is A Must Watch
If you haven’t been watching Orphan Black on BBC America, you really should check it out. The first season recently concluded and it’s by far my favorite show currently on television. Really innovative premise and the starring actress, Tatiana Maslany, is incredible to watch at work. I won’t go into too much detail to avoid giving anything away but this trailer for the show should hopefully get you hooked:
Daft Punk Cockatoo
Proof that anyone can nod their head to a Daft Punk song.
Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” Single Is Out
A single called “Get Lucky” off the upcoming Daft Punk album “Random Access Memories” came out earlier today and it is absolutely epic. We’ve been hearing samples of it over the past couple weeks/months but it’s great to finally here it in it’s complete form. I’m so pumped for the full album, due out May 21st!
