please get over yourselves. you’re not as smart as you think you are. 


We had huge stacks of disorganized Nintendo Power magazines sitting in boxes forever (doesn’t everyone?). Old magazines, especially Nintendo Powers, are great resources for Legends of Localization.

I cataloged the magazines this week and took photos of some stuff that made me laugh - bizarre advertising, Pokemon’s very first feature (can you imagine a world without Pokemon now?), and incorrect info about Ocarina of Time!

ELLE Magazine: Dave Franco Isn't Into Selfies

In Neighbors, the frat comedy starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, out tomorrow, fans of Dave Franco get their money’s worth. The actor—and younger brother of selfie connoisseur James Franco—plays an amiable, surprisingly intellectual frat boy named Pete who finds himself pretty naked (and pretty horny) at one point in the film. Franco, who has previously starred in flicks such as 21 Jump Street and Warm Bodies, is one of the best parts of Neighbors–and not just because he has a nice butt. We’re all up on the Dave Franco bandwagon after seeing it (sorry, James!) and got to chat with the actor about filming with Seth Rogen, picking up girls with magic and, just what is going on with the Franco family.

Why did you want to be part of this movie?

Well, I honestly didn’t feel that initially. The way my character was originally written there wasn’t much to do. It was another generic frat boy and I just blended into the background and there was nothing distinguishing about him. So I met with the director and the producers and we talked through that. They said, “Okay, what would you want to do with this character?” Two days later they sent me a new draft incorporating all the ideas we talked about. That’s what I love about these guys, how collaborative they are and how much they want to cater the character to who you are.

I feel bad for companies who try to imitate the “bizarre Tumblr advertising” thing that Denny’s does

because Denny’s singehandedly created the genre, ran it into the ground, and reconstructed it ironically, and no other company can repeat that magic
