Sometimes you just want to play cowboy, but your wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend/roommate/parents/dog just look at you funny when start wearing chaps and a ten-gallon hat around the house. Might I suggest giving the new Adult Swim video game Westerado a shot instead. This gorgeous 16-bits-style Western-style action RPG is shockingly expansive. You play a red-clad gunslinger looking to find the man who killed your family. Get jobs, question townspeople, fight bandits, wrangle buffalo. Along the way, you'll gather clues as to the killer's identity. A wide variety of tasks and a sly sense of humor make this a blast to play. Just watch where you point that six-shooter, partner.
Since its controversial release and subsequent rapid removal, No Doubt’s racist comeback video, “Looking Hot,” has engendered both indictments and shrugs. Marisa Demarco explains why perpetuating racist stereotypes and sexually violent themes in a pop music video matters in Plenty of Doubt.
I am the good guy in an old west shootout. The outcome historically is known to be in my favor, but I am reliving it anyway. The bad guy, dressed in purple and black, is barricaded in a shack. My weapon is a breakdown, single shot pellet gun with detachable silencer and stock. The bad guy suddenly bursts out and rushes me. I manage to load my gun and shoot him in the eye (he is a cyclops).

ESPN's Mock BCS standings had Boise State as the number one team in the nation but now the real rankings are out, giving college football fans a reality check. The Oklahoma Sooners sit atop the rankings but they should be sleeping with one eye opened. With unbeaten power teams such as Auburn, LSU, and Michigan State below them, Oklahoma needs to hope those teams look bad when losing. As for Boise State, TCU, and Utah, also need the power teams to lose multiple games in order to even have a shot at playing for the national title. It's a shame computers and rankings decide the fate of so many talented teams because it robs the fan of seeing a legitimate national champion. Sadly, Boise State and TCU will get continue to be disappointed until either we get a playoff system or they play in a power conference.
