Amazon announced it will begin selling a new Fire TV streaming set-top box on Wednesday. But whatever you do, do not go to firetv.com to find out more information about it, especially if you are at work.

This is just part of what awaits you:

The rest of the page is filled with, you guessed it, pornography. Amazon's new service unfortunately shares a name with a different type of online service: the porn site named Fyre TV, which also just happens to own the firetv.com domain as well.

A name isn't all they share. Apparently, the illicit site is also interested in letting you stream content to your television, although it's hardly of the "fun-for-the-whole-family" variety promised by Amazon in its launch today.

Instead, Fyre TV lets subscribers stream porn on-demand to their television sets through Amazon's competitor, Roku, and other third-party boxes.

Looks like you didn't think of everything, Bezos.

For those interested in more information on Amazon's Fire TV streaming, check out the company's website. Those wanting to know more about Fyre TV will have to do the searching themselves.

Rob Ford 'Crackathon' video game setting Internet on fire

TORONTO, April 8 (UPI) -- A new online video game allows players to pick up marijuana leafs, crack pipes and bottles of booze while playing as a digital version of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.

The new online game, "Crackathon," is filled with real audio clips of Ford from interviews and press conferences and it challenges players to collect "party points" while at the same time keeping the mayor's "public opinion" from reaching zero.



Quotes spliced into the game include "I did absolutely nothing wrong," "Probably in one of my drunken stupors" and "Yes, I've bought marijuana."

Players who fail are met with a "YOU ARE IMPEACHED" message.

This is Kind of Thought Provoking...


When the Wu-Tang Clan announced they would manufacture, and auction off, just one copy of a long-in-the-works secret album, the news was met with obvious intrigue.

Who would shell out the money for the rarity -- and how much would a given collector be willing to spend?

"Offers came in at $2 million, somebody offered $5 million yesterday," Wu-Tang’s de facto leader RZA told Billboard on Wednesday.

 

Last month RZA broke the news to Forbes that he had spent the last six years recording a secret album called “The Wu -- Once Upon a Time in Shaolin...”.

 

RZA’s vision for “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” is to create a true, one-of-a-kind music experience.

Instead of rolling the album out via a record label and endless promotion, RZA is treating the 31-track album like a fine painting or sculpture. The album is housed inside an engraved silver-and-nickle box crafted by British-Moroccan artist Yahya. Just like a Monet or a Picasso, the plan is to display the album at museums and galleries, and take the album on a “tour.”

According to Forbes, tickets for the exhibit would be sold (in the $30 to $50 range) and visitors would go through heavy security and listen to the 128-minute album on headphones provided by the venue.

RZA’s goal behind the unique approach in releasing “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” is to spark a debate about how music is appreciated in the era of mass production and market saturation.

 

RZA wrote in a manifesto  “By adopting a 400-year-old Renaissance-style approach to music, offering it as a commissioned commodity and allowing it to take a similar trajectory from creation to exhibition to sale, as any other contemporary art piece, we hope to inspire and intensify urgent debates about the future of music,”

 

“We hope to steer those debates toward more radical solutions and provoke questions about the value and perception of music as a work of art in today’s world.”

Goonies 2 is green lighted, kind of.

 

Donner told gossip site TMZ that he hoped to bring back all the stars of the original film for the follow-up. That would mean a return for actors such as Corey Feldman, Josh Brolin, Sean Astin and Jeff Cohen, whose lives have taken diverse paths since the 1985 movie. Feldman, who has for years been the biggest cheerleader for "Goonies 2" is a reality TV star and singer in a ska band (as well as occasional actor), Brolin and Astin retain Hollywood careers and Cohen (Chunk) is an entertainment lawyer.

Donner, also the director of Superman and the Lethal Weapon films, was signing autographs in an undisclosed location when he was asked to comment on the proliferation of superhero movies in 2014 Hollywood. Asked if he would make another comic-book film, he said: "If you call The Goonies a comic book – we're doing a sequel." Prompted to reveal which stars of the original would return he replied: "Hopefully all of them."
