Forza Horizon 3 Coming To Windows!

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 Fixtapes

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

If you’re looking for something to listen to, then I highly recommend these! Here’s an example one:

You can also find them all on Soundcloud if you just want to stream them:

Props to my co-worker Sara Rosso for getting me hooked on these!

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!

WordPress On "Orphan Black"

Before you bother to check, the domain is registered in real life but there’s no site there, WordPress or otherwise.

For other sightings of WordPress on television, check out these posts. On Jeopardy!, the primary product of the company I work for, was featured in an answer on Jeopardy! last night. Very cool. On Jeopardy!

The question is “What is a blog?”.

UPDATE: My co-worker Matt Thomas has a video of it over on his blog.
