What hasn’t been said about South Park? Known for their twisted humor and dark satire, the story of four potty-mouthed boys in South Park, Colorado has entertained millions of viewers and angered just as many others since the show began in 1997. Originally thought up as two animated shorts in the early 90’s by the show’s creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the show has come a long way since its cardboard cutout origins and VHS viral video days. Now the show holds some of the most consistently high viewership numbers of any basic cable program and remains one of Comedy Central’s most successful programs of all time.

The end of 2013 was marked by a much needed wrench in the cogs of the video game industry, a console war. After the long lives of the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3, the gaming world needed a breath of fresh air. Sadly, we didn’t really get that.

Both Microsoft and Sony plagued social media networks with unending ads, Microsoft tried to bribe YouTube users to endorse the Xbox One, and a stream of negative media ruled supreme as the two companies seemed to be arch rivals. During all of the news storm, redesigning of consoles, and removing controversial features (Microsoft), one company was surprisingly out of the spotlight.

With the holidays creeping up on our calendar pages, the shopping zeal will soon set in amongst most of us. Going out and shopping for a loved one can be an exciting and rewarding experience as you pick out something that you know your loved one or friend will truly appreciate, but this time can also be quite stressful. We wonder what our friends and family will like, what is in and cool with the younger people on the shopping list, and what gifts will totally flop. With society advancing to a more technological future, it will be a safe bet this year that getting someone you know a present from the electronics section will bring a smile to their face.
