Evening Reading - February 15, 2021 (President's Day)

President's Day is winding down here in the United States, so come join us for some Evening Reading.


Greetings, travelers! It may be President's Day, but we're not skipping out on Evening Reading here at Shacknews. Even though the staff took the day off to observe our country's greatest leaders, including Duke Nukem, we're still closing out our weekdays as usual. Let's dive right in.

In case you missed it at Shacknews:

And now... Other Stuff From The Internet!!!

What the hell is happening in Texas?

Stay safe out there, Texans!

Much love,
-Some jerk from Southern California

The world needs so much more Deadpool


I feel your pain, Scoops

I don't know if I've ever told you guys this, but Cyber Shadow is freakin' hard.

Cars going in circles

The Daytona 500 was Sunday and, in case you missed, OOH, CARS GO CRASH!

Really, I only remembered this race happened because it ran so long that it wound up pre-empting the Fox Sunday night comedies. I love my Bob's Burgers.

The Untitled Goose Game/Goat Simulator crossover you never knew you wanted


Not sure when I'll get to do Evening Reading again, so I may as well take this chance to once again express my love for my boys, The Acclaimed!

And of course, NXT Takeover: Vengeance Day was last night. Find something better in wrestling today than CAAAAAAAAMERON GRIMES! HA HA HA!

I mean, isn't this pretty much everyone who got in on GameStop early? STONKS!

Tonight in video game music

Is there a more majestic instrument than the recorder?

Happy President's Day!

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I forgot to throw this in the story, but I may as well put it over here. So apparently, Cameron Grimes' gimmick is a semi-true story. He apparently DID invest in GameStop IRL. He didn't make "fuck you" money like the gimmick, but he apparently made five figures. So good for him.
