MP3 Deal: Journey’s ‘Greatest Hits’

Posted: 31 Dec 2010 05:47 AM PST

Journey's Greatest Hits

The MP3 album deal of the deal over at Amazon today is a Journey's Greatest Hits for only $3.99.

This deal is valid for today, Friday, December 31, 2010, but chances are it will last another day as well — though, you shouldn't wait just in case.

The greatest hits collection has 16 songs on it, many of which you'll recognize as chart toppers from the 1980s: "Don't Stop Believin'," "Open Arms," "Separate Ways," "Who's Crying Now," "Faithfully," "Only The Young," and "Ask The Lonely." Their popular tunes from the 1970s are also represented with "Wheel In The Sky," "Lights," and "Any Way You Want It" (ok, that last one was from early 1980, but it still had the 1970's line-up and sound).

Damn they have a lot of hits!!! All good stuff, I promise. I just rattled off more than enough tunes to justify shelling out $4 for this album, especially since if you were to purchase the songs individually it would be $.99 per song [...]

Watch Now: The Star Wars Holiday Special In Five Minutes

Posted: 30 Dec 2010 06:47 PM PST

Leia's O Face?

For those who celebrate Wookiee Life Day as opposed to all of the other end-of-year holidays, we have a treat for you... the Star Wars Holiday Special in 5 minutes, specially edited to only focus on the "live-action" stuff. Watch it here below.

If you haven't seen the Holiday Special before, it's certainly a gem from its time. If you thought Expanded Universe debates and Originals vs. Prequels debates turn out to divide fans, wait until you get in the middle of an argument about this thing.

Complete with Bea Arthur and Jefferson Starship, The Star Wars Holiday Special first aired in November 1978 and also featuredHan and Chewie, Luke Skywalker with the WORST possible haircut ever, and Princess Leia singing a song that is sure to induce brain hemorrhages.

The original full special also marked a few firsts: one of which was the very first appearance of Boba Fett (before his debut in The Empire Strikes Back) in a short animated story involving Luke, Han, Chewie, the Droids, and some weird beast of burden Fett rides [...]

Social Blend Podcast Celebrates The Best Of 2010

Posted: 30 Dec 2010 08:55 AM PST

Social Blend

Every year, Jay Fowler aka SilentJay74 and myself put together a compilation episode of the Social Blend podcast that focuses on some of the interesting (read: mostly ridiculous) moments from the year. 2010 was an awesome year for Social Blend and there were some great moments from the year.

The Best of Social Blend 2010 is now online at and also features a short clip from The Ultimate Geek Movies episode we posted about here recently.

In some ways, the podcast is almost like a "sister site" to Geeks of Doom. We often discuss content and news that's been posted here, and have also had Dave3, Empress Eve, and Tched on the show as well. On top of that, TARDISblend originally came from Social Blend too [...]
