Netflix Now: Limonada Edition

Earlier this week, as police officers have a harder time in the news, police shut down two little girls' lemonade stand. The two little girls were trying to make some money to go to a water park in Texas, and they were shut down because the...

Netflix Now: #ThanksObama Edition

Well, the POTUS with the MOSTUS has joined Twitter. There's some kind of gag in here somewhere, but this all seems way too surreal to be funny. In the few hours he's been on Twitter, he's already taken a jab at Bill Clinton, accrued 2.9 mil...

Netflix Now: The King Has Returned Edition

Wow, so it's been three months since I last wrote one of these. Big apologies for that since lots of life stuff came up at once. I actually moved cross country (from San Antonio, TX to Astoria, NY) and it has taken me awhile to adjust. That...

Netflix Now: Comebacks Edition

Thanks to a great coincidences, a bunch of musicians have been making a comeback. Paul McCartney has had a hand in Kanye and Rihanna's music, Kelly Clarkson has released a new single after the birth of her child, and Missy Elliott had a gre...

Netflix Now: Resolution Edition

Wow, it's been a while so sorry about that. Anyhoo, since it's a long list I'll get right to it after a few things. I'll try and make this bi-weekly from now on to avoid all of this, and thank you for reading this list time and time again. ...

Netflix Now: Year End, Rear End Edition

As the last Netflix Now before the end of the year, I'd like to say it's been a good run. Although 2014 could've been a better year, I've had a lot of fun myself. Met a bunch of cool people, went to some cool places, ate some really good do...

Netflix Now: 2014 Kind of Sucks

2014 has been very, very rough. Bad things have been happening everywhere and there's no sign of stopping. Sure bad things have been happening every year, but whatever's been bubbling under the surface all this time has finally come to a he...

Netflix Now: Taylor Swift is Still My Boo Edition

It seems we've come full circle. One of the first Netflix Now articles I ever wrote was "Taylor Swift is My Boo," and I'm glad I get to mention her here again. Her latest album, 1989, released a bit back and it's pretty good. I'm a big fan ...

Netflix Now: What's With All the Blackface? Edition

Happy Halloween weekend, folks! You have any plans? Any plans are fine as long as they don't involve dressing up as insulting caricatures. Ray Rice costumes, sexy ISIS members (yes, that's a thing), and enough is enough. It's 2014 people. I...

Netflix Now: Sorry I Was In A Coma Edition

Earlier this week, a man in the UK was outed for faking several disabilities and coma episodes for two years in order to avoid going to court. I'd like to take this time to say that guy is me and I apologize for my actions. I hope that at l...

Netflix Now: Pumpkin Spice Edition

Well folks, it's October. Which means it's time for bad decisions, sexy costumes (I'm going as a sexy Charlie Brown this Halloween), and loads of diabetes. In case you'd somehow forgotten that it's October, every product everywhere sees fit...

Netflix Now: I Stand With Kanye

Last Friday during a concert in Sydney, Australia, Kanye West said he wasn't going to perform unless everyone in the audience stood up. Then he sent his bodyguard into the crowd to verify why a certain person was sitting, then he realized t...

Netflix Now: Joseph Khan's Detention Edition

Here's a partially true fact about me: If someone wants to be my friend, they have to watch Joseph Khan's Detention. If I spend any amount of time with a person and they haven't seen it, I hound them about it until they do. Before, I n...

Netflix Now: Third Party Pseudo-Exclusives

It's Gamescom, which means big game publishers not named Nintendo are all in Germany telling people about big new things that they're doing with their money. The biggest, showiest example of this was the announcement that the next Tomb Raid...

Netflix Now: Pizza Swimsuit Edition

I've always wanted to talk about Katy Perry here, I just wish it were under better circumstances. See, her newest single "How We Do" is pretty bad (much like the rest of PRISM, sadly) and slightly racist, but that's not what I'm hear to tal...

Netflix Now: Rock the Casbah

It's been great watching Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's career skyrocket. He's a true blue "guy everyone wants to be, everyone wants to be with" who can go from children's films to action hero status without missing a beat. And regardless of w...

Netflix Now: Lind-Sue Lohan Edition

Apparently to signal the end of her once promising career, Lindsay Lohan is suing the makers of Grand Theft Auto V for using her likeness without her permission. Technically she's right as GTAV uses everyone's likeness in that game. If you'...

Netflix Now: War, What is it Good For? Edition

Over the past few days, North Korea has responded to the first trailer for Seth Rogen and James Franco's new gig, The Interview. Citing it as an "act of war" if the American government allows that film to release. Normally I'd be worri...

Netflix Now: The $4,000,000 V-Log

One of the most popular Youtubers on Youtube is Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg with 27 million subscribers. According to the Wall Street Journal, the ad revenue from his vids nets him a cool $4 million a year (before all the costs/t...

Netflix Now: EEE 2014 Edition

It's been a great week. We got a new PSY single featuring Snoop Dogg, lots of videogame announcements were made during the 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo (check out our sister site, Destructoid, for all of that stuff), and I've eaten lo...

Netflix Now: Three Kardashians and a Baby Edition

After all of this time, I'm still keeping up with the Kardashians for some reason. Kim and Kanye (not Kanye and Kim, hilariously enough) or "Kamye/Kimye/Kimchi" had their wedding, and now one of the Kardashians sisters is pregnant again. Th...

Netflix Now: Dumb Phones Edition

Did you know there's a new trend where kids are giving up their smartphones in favor of "dumb" ones? I guess when phones do everything (and inspire terribly premised videogames), and everyone and their grandmother gets a hold of one, it's n...

Netflix Now: Edumacated Edition

It's the end of the school season, folks. Lots of bright eyed kids are graduating, joining the real world, and then will wander around for a year before deciding what to do. I miss those days too. I mean, I don't miss not having a direction...

Netflix Now: 100 Problems Edition

If you're having girl problems, I feel bad for you son. Jay Z hilariously now has 100 problems (I must be the first person on the internet to make that joke). Apparently Solange Knowles beat up Jay Z in an elevator for reasons. I actually d...

Netflix Now: Lewinsky'd Edition

This week, after ten years, Monica Lewinsky has finally broken her silence on her affair will Bill Clinton (whether this is in response to Beyonce's "Partition" single misinformingly popularizing the term "Lewinksy'd" is unknown but would b...

Netflix Now: Kareem Abdul-JaBLAMO Editon

April has really been a weird month. With its wacky weather, unfortunate deaths, and racism. The whole Donald Sterling thing seemed absurd. A white man says some racist comments in a private conversation, that conversation gets leaked to TM...

Netflix Now: Rates Keep On Slippin' Slippin' Edition

Once again, Netflix is going to increase their rates due to an increased surge in popularity. After Netflix CEO Reed Hastings revealed their positive quarterly earnings, he stated that new customers should expect to pay one to two dollars m...

Netflix Now: Anyone else watching American Idol? Edition

I've really been digging this season of American Idol. Despite the ridiculous amount of cuts to Jennifer Lopez during the performances, most of the contestants this year have been great. And the new judging panel isn't too bad either. Harry...

Netflix Now: Whole Buncha Stuff Edition

Usually I like to use this space in Netflix Now to talk about the week's events, but there are far too many Instant additions to waste any time. Since it's the beginning of the month, we're in that flux of losing/gaining a bunch of things t...

Netflix Now: Hot in Herrrrrrrrrre Edition

Before the Malaysian Flight MH370 mystery came to an unfortunate conclusion, radio station Latino Hot 105.7 vowed to play Nelly's "Hot in Herre" until the plane was found. Well they kept that up for about a day, but what's most important is...

Netflix Now: SXSW Recovery Edition

It's been a week since I've been back from this year's SXSW, and I'm finally recovering from it. My sleep schedule's back on track, my brain seems to be making words good now, and now I can finally start churning out the coverage (hopefully...

Netflix Now: Adele Dazeem Edition

During the Academy Awards, all I looked forward to was Idina Menzel's performance. I was actually more interested in what would win the Best Original Song Oscar more so than I cared about Best Picture. It was a weird night as I watched thro...

Netflix Now: Blue is the Warmest Color Edition

So here's something I didn't expect: Blue is the Warmest Color is now available on Netflix Instant. Abdellatif Kechiche's spectacular three-hour romance is being released on Blu ray and DVD by the Criterion Collection, but while Hulu h...

Netflix Now: Manatees Day Edition

What's Manatees Day? When I tried typing in "Manantine's Day" in my phone it auto corrected to "Manatees Day" thus making it the best idea ever. I figure I can call what I do every Valentine's Day (eat a bunch of junk food, watch really bad...

Netflix Now: Deboning the Pink Goo Edition

The Super Bowl happened last weekend as I was planning to talk about it here, but it was terribly boring all around. Kudos to the Seahawks, but watching a blowout coupled with a heap of subpar commercials doesn't make a good time. In better...

Netflix Now: Vin Diesel is a National Treasure Edition

A few hours ago I wrote a story about how Vin Diesel said Universal wants another Riddick, what I didn't get into, however, was how he announced it. After a few minutes of dancing to Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" and closing out the video with ...

Netflix Now: FOOTBAWWWWWWW Edition

I like football probably not as much as the next guy (as I only jump in during playoff season like some cheap bandwagoner), but it's that time of the year where it's all I think about until the Soup Bowl. The NFC and AFC championships went ...

Netflix Now: Texting in Theaters Edition

On Monday, a man in Florida was shot and killed because he was texting in a theater. While it's easy for most of us to say "Texting in theaters is bad, don't do it" it's another thing for an altercation over it to lead to violence. That's i...
