  1. World of Warcraft Players Break Fundraising Record for Hurricane Sandy Relief

    World of Warcraft is a community as much as it is a game, and sometimes that community has been called on to help out the real world. Blizzard, the company behind WoW, has hosted fundraising efforts in the past for charities like St. Jude Children's Hospital, the Make a Wish Foundation, and even the relief effort after the devastating 2011 tsunami in Japan. Their latest call to action for players has broken all of their previous fundraising records. Blizzard announced last week that World of Warcraft players have raised $2.3 million dollars for Hurricane Sandy relief.

  2. Paul McCartney Jammed With Nirvana at 12-12-12 Benefit Concert, Minds Were Blown

    Those attending the 12-12-12 concert for Sandy relief last night were hit with a dual nostalgia wave of mid-'90s grunge and Beatlemania when former Beatles bassist Paul McCartney was joined on the stage by Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and even Pat Smear of Nirvana fame. Rumors had circulated for quite some time prior to the benefit concert regarding McCartney playing alongside a reunited Nirvana, with some going as far to assume that the Beatle had brought the band together himself or that he was actually going to join them. Misinformed hyperbole aside, fans praised McCartney temporarily filling in for the late Kurt Cobain as Nirvana's frontman.

  5. Hurricane Sandy Leaves New Jersey Liquor Lovers High and Dry

    One of the potentially unforeseen consequences of Hurricane Sandy's aftermath might see New Jersey boozers left without their favorite beverage. Fedway Associates Inc., the exclusive distributor in the state for fine liquors like Cristal and Svedka vodka, had their warehouse in south Kearny, New Jersey left in shambles thanks to 10-foot tidal surges from the horrendous weather. They don't expect to be back in full operation until December, so folks might be out of luck when it comes to their particular brands.

    Hurricane Sandy's left a mess in its path across the East Coast. Much of the public transit system in New York and New Jersey, for example, is still cobbling itself back together.

Given the difficulties that voters might find in reaching their polling location, New Jersey has announced that folks will be able to vote by email or fax this year. Cue the cries of electronic tampering.

    As Hurricane Sandy hit the northeastern United States last night, large swathes of New York and New Jersey lost power. This video, which captured an explosion at a Con Edison plant, would most likely explain why. If you wait through the middle, another explosion happens at the end. It was probably terrifying for the people that didn't have power since they couldn't quickly hop on the Internet and look up what just happened. Thankfully, the storm is gone, and now we all just have to wait for the clean-up.
