Olive oil is clearly worse than butter, but the media’s got bad news for those who have made the wrong choice about which form of grease to cover their bread with. An especially crappy year of bad weather and bacteria have sent every other news outlet panicking after the prices went up, like, a little bit.

<![CDATA[On This Day In Pop Culture For February 22]]> This Day in Pop Culture History

Welcome to This Day in Pop Culture History, a daily look at important events, birthdays, and other oddities in pop culture! History is important, and we aim to educate here at Bleeding Cool, so without further ado, here are some things that have happened on February 22:

1861- On a bet, Edward Payson Weston leaves Boston to walk to the inauguration of President Lincoln. Click that link, it is one of the more interesting stories I have read in awhile.


1980-  The US beats the USSR in hockey at the Olympics, known as “The Miracle on Ice”.

1990- Milli Vanilli win the Grammy for Best New Artist, which is later returned after they admit to not performing the music on their album.

2006- The largest cash robbery in British history, The Securitas Depot Robbery, continues, wrapping up in the early hours of this morning.

Today in gaming, we had Gran Turismo 4 (2005), Bulletstorm (2011), Killzone 3 (2011), Xenogears (2011), and Borderlands: Game of the Year edition (2014). I’m sure our resident BC Gaming correspondent Maddie Ricchiuto has something to say about these.

Borderlands was fun, I will give it that. The posters were pretty damn cool as well. Xenogears, oh man Squaresoft. Xenogears was the unholy matrimony of JRPGs. If you ever wanted to know what a Japanese game made by the ghosts of Freidrich Neitzsche, Sigmund Freud, and Carl Jung would be;play Xenogears.

Today in Bleeding Cool history, in 2011 Rich Johnston wrote a great remembrance of the late, great Dwayne McDuffie.

Today’s Birthdays include President George Washington (1732), Don Pardo tv personality (1918), Edward Gorey artist/author (1925), Julius Erving athelete (1950), Kyle MacLachlan actor (1959), Steve Irwin nature expert/activist/tv personality (1962), Jeri Ryan actress (1968), Thomas Jane actor (1969), Drew Barrymore actress (1975)

We lost two very different but very important artists today, as we remember Andy Warhol (1987) and Chuck Jones (2002).

Lets look at some videos on these two legends. First, Andy Warhol.

And of course, Chuck Jones.

And we close out the day with one of my favorites, Edward Gorey.

Beloved animated series Futurama has long been cursed with a bad case of the cancellations. Originally airing on Fox in 1999, Futurama saw its first cancellation in 2003. In 2005, Comedy Central began negotiations to take over the show, with plans to make new episodes, but those plans were canceled, and the network produced four straight-to-DVD films in 2007 instead, though those were also released as sixteen individual episodes. The show was renewed again in 2009, but Comedy Central attempted to cancel the entire voice acting cast. Fan backlash thwarted those plans, and the show went on until 2013, when it was once again canceled. To date, Futurama has released four “series finale” episodes.

At the time, creator Matt Groening defiantly announced plans to produce more episodes as a puppet show, but those plans were also apparently canceled. Just last week, the Futurama comic book published by Bongo was canceled, or at least its print edition was, with Bongo announcing that future issues would be published digitally.

It’s been a dark time for fans since Futurama went off the air — all of those times — but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Futurama is coming back, with all new stories, with Groening, original executive producer David X. Cohen, and “much of the original cast,” according to a press release. And this time, there’s no network to cruelly cancel the series despite its enduring popularity, because this time, Futurama is a video game called Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow.

“I love this game because it feels just like Futurama,” said Matt Groening of Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow. “Except now you get to jab the characters in the face.”

Futurama is back, bigger and better than ever!  Or possibly smaller and equally good. But either way, it’s back!” said Cohen. “We’ve got completely new stories from the original writers, cast, and animators. This is the real Futurama deal.

Produced by Fox Interactive and Groening’s Curiosity Company in partnership with TinyCo, Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow will be released on mobile devices through the Apple App Store, Google Play, and Amazon Appstore. More information will be released about the game in the near future, but you can pre-register at  www.youwillplayfuturama.com or follow the game on www.fb.com/playfuturama and www.twitter.com/playfuturama.

I haven't exactly heard great things about Fist Fight, but I'll wait to see it myself before I make my mind up about it. One of its stars, Ice Cube, hooked up with GQ to promote the film in an unusual way: he created accounts on sites like Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, Yahoo Answers, and IMDb and commented on fan statements about him. Of course, he puts his own unique Ice Cube spin on every one of them, and along the way, he reveals some cool trivia about himself, including how he got his name and the real circumstances behind his first rap song. He also teases the possibility of another Friday movie. Check it out.

<![CDATA[First Trailer for Terrence Malick's SONG TO SONG, Starring Rooney Mara, Ryan Gosling, and Michael Fassbender]]>

Terrence Malick's movies are often described as "lyrical," but his latest film, Song to Song, may be the most appropriate target for that adjective. It's a drama set in Austin, Texas that deals with the seductive world of music, and with actors like Rooney Mara, Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender and Natalie Portman starring and supporting talent including Cate Blanchett, Benicio Del Toro, and Christian Bale, this has some serious potential. Check out the first trailer below, and let us know what you think in the comments.

Song to Song is set to premiere at this year's SXSW Film Festival and hits theaters on March 17, 2017.

<![CDATA[Newsweek: "Trump either knows exactly what Flynn said, or he is incompetent"]]>

This is an interesting Newsweek piece by Kurt Eichenwald that goes into detail about the NSA's wiretapping program as it relates to the phone call between Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former national security advisor and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Assuming the Flynn recording involved RAGTIME-B, because of his position as a former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and being the incoming president’s national security advisor, the intercepted material would be immediately analyzed. If Flynn—as the White House first stated when the news of his contacts with Kislyak became public—had been engaged in pleasantries or planning meeting times for the Russians with Trump, the records of Flynn’s side of the conversation would no longer exist. Flynn would have been deemed an American person, and the intercepted recordings and transcripts would be “minimized”—the word used in the surveillance world for when portions or all of an intercepted communication is destroyed. In other words, if the conversation was no more than “How are you Ambassador Kislyak,” or “Let’s set up a meeting for you and a Russian delegation with the president-elect,” Flynn’s words would no longer exist in any American file.

But that’s not what happened. Instead, something in the recording led the first-level analysts from RAGTIME to follow the next leg of the procedure and take the intercept to the head of the FBI’s National Security Division for another review. Again, if a conclusion was reached that there was nothing in the call to raise concerns, the reviews would have stopped there and the data would have been minimized. But the division head instead decided that the intercepted conversation merited bringing the raw transcript to James Comey, the director of the FBI, and his deputy. (At the time, this would have been Mark F. Giuliano, a veteran of the bureau. Giuliano has since retired and, as of this month, was replaced by Andrew G. McCabe, a former lawyer in private practice who joined the federal law enforcement agency in 1996.) The director and his deputy were then the final arbiters of whether the intercepted communications merited further investigation. And they decided it did.

<![CDATA[Every NY Times front page in under a minute]]>

In this short video, Josh Begley shows all of the front pages of the NY Times in chronological order from 1852 to the present. The Times began publishing in 1851 so not every front page is represented, but that’s still more than 50,000 pages in less than a minute. Since they go by so quickly, here are some highlights:

Dec 11, 1861: The Times publishes their first illustrations on the front page. One is a map of Virginia and the other two are political cartoons lampooning James Gordon Bennett, founder of the New York Herald, one of the Times’ main rivals.

Apr 15, 1865: The front page columns were lined with black as they reported on the assassination of Lincoln.

Dec 1, 1896: The hyphen is dropped from “The New-York Times”.

Feb 10, 1897: The slogan “All the News That’s Fit to Print” appears for the first time on the front page.

May 30, 1910: The first news photograph appears on the front page, a photo of aviator Glenn Curtiss flying from Albany to NYC at the blistering pace of 54 mi/hr.

May 1, 1926: The Times prints the first photo “radioed” to the newspaper from London. Transmission time: 1hr 45m.

Jul 21, 1969: The first use of 96 pt. type on the front page announces the Apollo 11 landing on the Moon and subsequent moonwalk. The large type will also be used to announce Nixon’s resignation, the first day of 2000, 9/11, and the election of Barack Obama.

Sept 7, 1976: The columns on the front page are widened, reducing their number from 8 to 6.

Oct 16, 1997: The first color photo is printed on the front page of the Times. (The Times Machine scan is in B&W for some reason, but the photo was in color.)

Begley also made Best of Luck With the Wall, a video showing the entire extent of the US-Mexico border.
