Video: The Lonely Island – “Jack Sparrow” (featuring Michael Bolton)

The Lonely Island’s newest album Turtleneck & Chain may be hitting music stores tomorrow, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to keep us from the new tracks. Last Saturday’s SNL Digital Short brought one of the weirdest guest vocal appearances the group has had so far: that Grammy-winning “no-talent ass clown”, Michael Bolton!

Pirates Beware, avoid Facebook on DSi

Pirates Beware, avoid Facebook on DSi

All of you DSi adopters out there…make sure you take care when downloading the Facebook Connect application. If you’re a scurvy pirate, it might just render your DS flashcart completely useless. This affects people using iPlayer, AK2I, and EZVi so far. Besides, don’t you have better hardware to be doing the facebooks on anyway?

You cheap bastards out there need to realize that the more and more games that get pirated, the less and less operating revenue that the company has to work with. Case in point is UbiSoft’s record loss of 67% that they claimed as a loss compared to last year.
