Heath Andrews has been a student of pop culture ever since he found himself to be the only student in 3rd grade who regularly watched "Get Smart" on Nick-At-Nite. Ever since then he's been engrossed in way too much media with a growing collection of music, books, comics, TV on DVD box sets, and a video game collection that could rival a brick and mortar store. Prior to writing for Nerdbot he's written for Review You, MyAnimeList, and various advertising companies. Since 2016 he's run his own YouTube channel under the moniker of The Critical Android where he livestreams video games and uploads podcasts about pop culture and Frasier.

By all accounts, Dave Grohl is a pretty wonderful human being. From his activism in the name of LGBT+ rights, to his complete intolerance of people fighting at his concerts, to being legitimately funny and warm in nearly any interview you see with him; Grohl seems like he would be the best, and most talented friend you could ever hope to have. He also isn’t afraid to speak his mind on something, as evidenced by the aforementioned video of his tolerance for fighting. So what would the former drummer for Nirvana have to say about the lawsuit being filed about…

If popular consensus about owning a vehicle has told us anything, it’s that finding things on your car is an annoyance. Bird poop, a scratch, a parking ticket; all annoying. What do you do though when the object you find is a pair of underwear that is not yours? Well that’s the question that people in the North Oak Park area in California are asking themselves, especially now that they realize that whatever’s going on is not an isolated incident. Caity Maple found a pair of women’s underwear on her car windshield on September 4th, 2021. She wrote it off…

You know the phrase when things go wrong, “if it’s not one thing, it’s a ninja.” Or at least that’s the phrase that could be used at the Inyokern Airport in the Mojave Desert following a random sword attack from a man dressed up as a ninja. Fortunately, no one was seriously wounded. But the details of the attack are enough to make you think that someone in this story is making things up, despite it being verified by a military spokesperson. Credit for breaking the story goes to Chad Garland of Stars and Stripes who independently verified the story…

Its been a while since I’ve dedicated myself to biblical verse, but come the time of the apocalypse, I don’t seem to recall “fleas” being one of the issues that we mortals would have to face. However for two schools in Oakland, California, a flea problem has become so pervasive that no only has it been described as apocalyptic, but it’s shutting down two schools for two days. …Because apparently apocalyptic issues can be resolved within 48 hours. Early morning of September 30th, it was announced that Esperanza Elementary School and Korematsu Discovery Academy would be closed for Thursday and…

If you’ve spent the last 28 years wondering when we’d ever get another “Sister Act” movie, then congratulations, you are in a very niche group of people. But you can also be in a very happy niche as reports are emerging over who will be writing and directing the project which will return Whoopi Goldberg to the role of Deloris/Sister Mary Clarence. For the uninitiated, “Sister Act” was a surprise hit of 1992, grossing over $230 million and cementing Whoopi’s commercial viability as a film actress in the early to mid 90s. While this would later be undone by films…

Sometimes seemingly small things can turn into references that take on a life of their own. Look at “Hobo With a Shotgun” for example. What was originally a joke trailer for a fake film became its own actual movie with the late, great Rutger Hauer. In the case of Eminem, the famed rapper with a multitude of hit albums and songs, he’ll never be able to escape the lyric, “mom’s spaghetti” from his song, “Lose Yourself.” But to give the man credit, he has leaned into the infamy of it hard, opening up a restaurant that actually, exclusively serves spaghetti.…

September of 2021 is quickly coming to a close, but leave it to Nintendo to give gamers something to look forward to. During the September Nintendo Direct presentation, the Big N focused on upcoming projects for the remainder of 2021, as well as things coming sometime in 2022. In case you missed it, let’s break things down. First up was a cinematic trailer for an upcoming DLC expansion for Capcom’s “Monster Hunter Rise.” The title has done very well for itself in terms of reception and sales for the Switch exclusive. No real information was given for the “Sunberak” expansion,…

The next time you see a vehicle that has a “free car” sign on it with the keys in it, maybe you should think twice before just driving it off. Or at the very least, maybe check the trunk first. This is a valuable lesson that two men in Mississippi learned earlier this week when the “free car” they acquired turned out to have a dead body in the trunk. While the men who found the car have not been named, the victim has been identified as Anthony Mccrillis. The car was found in the city of Byram and driven…

Cooking is hard. Some people may argue against this point but to many of us, that doesn’t change the fact that cooking is indeed hard. If you’re like me, you may have problems with even something simple like toast. What happens if your toast doesn’t come out right and you wish it could be just regular bread again? Until today, your options were limited. Now though, you can bring your bread back to life with a toaster that untoasts your bread. The YouTube channel Joel Creates posted a video last month that really deserves more attention than what it’s getting,…

Few actors can claim to have the extreme highs and lows in their career like Eddie Murphy has. A string of hits in the ’80s like “48 Hours,” and “Beverly Hills Cop” alongside his run on “Saturday Night Live” turned him into one of the biggest stars on the planet. But then there’s “The Adventures of Pluto Nash” and “Meet Dave” and “A Thousand Words.” Things have become substantially better for Murphy in the last few years, and Amazon is trying to capitalize on that with a deal that will land them three films with the actor alongside a first-look…
