50 Shades of Grey- The Animated Series

By +Alexa Rankin

With the success of the E.L. James novels and the movie raking in over $250 million at the worldwide box office, the 50 shades franchise is definitely a money spinner. At least that's exactly what a small production company in Reno, NV are hoping for. Christasia Productions have signed an exclusive deal to produce 2 seasons of an animated show based on characters from the 50 Shades universe.

What got slapped 12 months ago - April 2014

By +Tina Cruris

Happy April, Penguin Slappers. Do you ever lay awake at night wondering what we were doing 12 months ago? I don't blame you, there are much more important things to lie awake at night for. However, I suspect there may be an inkling of curiosity going on in your tiny little minds, which is one of the reasons that I write these reslap posts.

The other reasons include contractual obligation and good SEO (search engine optimization) practices, and of course I Love My Job. Taking old friends on a trip down memory lane and showing new friends how funny we used to be.

WTF? Selfie Sticks

By +Tina Cruris

By now I am sure many of you have seen at least one person using a 'selfie stick' and this fad keeps extending (not sorry for the pun). For those of you who have no clue what I am talking about, a selfie stick is an extendable, hand held monopod for your phone or camera which allows you to take a picture of yourself (selfie) from a distance or from an obscure angle without engaging a stranger to take the picture for you. If you still don't get it, here is a picture.

Where are they now? Major League

By +Ian C

Considering that my local baseball team begins their season long monopoly of the minor local TV channels, I bring you a topical "Where are they now?" post featuring America's favorite pastime. 25 years ago, the movie theaters were packed with people watching baseball and singing along with "Wild Thing" as Major League, the funniest sports movie since Chariots of Fire Slapshot hit the big screens.

Easter - A modern perspective

By +Brad Naylor

There are 2 days of the year when those Christians who don't regularly attend church make an extra special effort to dress up and praise the Lord. The first is Jesus' birthday or as it is more commonly known, Christmas. The second is Jesus' other birthday, the one when he was reborn, which we call Easter.
