Evening Reading - September 17, 2021

It's Friday night and we're sending you into the weekend with another edition of Shacknews Evening Reading.


Greetings, Shacknews! I've been unleashed upon Evening Reading once again. So let's close out this latest week of our finite existence with a look at posts, memes, and other stuff.

In case you missed it at Shacknews:

And, because it's the weekend, go find yourself something to play!

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

Senpai noticed us!

Oh, yes, Max! Greg has a fully functioning Proton Pack.

RIP Norm

We've been mourning the passing of legendary comedian Norm MacDonald all week. If you want to hear from one of his closest friends, check out the latest episode of Conan Needs A Friend and hear from Conan O'Brien.

And, as long as we're remembering Norm, let's look at some of his final works of brilliance, voicing Pigeon from Mike Tyson Mysteries.

Just too many

Keep it to one monkey jumping on the bed, if possible.

Cats are jerks

Cats will take attention wherever they can get it.

Runny babbits

Look at the little chungus!


Delightfully devilish, Seymour.

The crossover we've been waiting for!

I've appreciated the reunions between Stabler and Benson, but now let's get some more with Stabler and Fin!


When IT'S STILL REAL TO ME, DAMMIT! goes wrong!

Last night was not a good night to be a fan of professional wrestling. The story of The Plane Ride from Hell was supposed to be some interesting tabloid fare, but I feel pretty confident in saying that anybody who watched it came away feeling really icky afterwards.

In particular, it cast a damning light on Ric Flair with one of the flight attendants recounting her story of what can only be described as sexual assault. Car Shield has already halted its ad campaign with the Nature Boy and there's speculation that any plans to bring him into All Elite Wrestling are out the window.

If anyone came off worse, it was former ECW star Tommy Dreamer, who basically defended Flair's behavior. No worries, he got his earlier today.

You're all used to getting the fun side of pro wrestling from me, but viewer discretion is advised here. This is not a fun watch.

Tonight in video game music

Here are the soothing sounds of the Super Guitar Bros. I'm stoked to see these guys perform in a few weeks here in Los Angeles. Grab some beer, lay back, and chill to these sounds for the rest of your night.

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?
