Movie posters for Bad Dudes and Pro Wrestling - - both from this week's edition of Photoshop Phriday.
And a few more links:
1. The FTC's new rules on disclosures of conflicts of interest seem like nothing more than a weapon to go after people they don't like - - apparently they're not going to go after Gwyneth Paltrow because she's famous and thus assumed to be a shill. Via.
2. Meanwhile an expert who has repeatedly been quoted as supporting health care reform was paid $300,000 by the Obama administration. Neither he nor the White House saw a reason to mention the payment. More here, here, and here.
3. A history of Gilbert Arenas' cruel private jokes. In a bit of foreshadowing, when Javaris Crittenton was traded to the Wizards, he was asked about Arenas' history of practical jokes, and said, "I've heard about Gil, but I don't think he'll do that."

Katamari Damacy/Shadow of the Colossus mashup. Via this collection of weird Katamari art.
And a few more links:
1. News to me: "H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds was an allegory about the injustice of European imperial rule of Africa, China and India."
2. Good article about soldiers ambushed in Afghanistan:
The Americans, seasoned by years of war here and in Iraq, would seek to create an intricately violent response, designed to undo the odds, save the pinned soldiers and kill the insurgents who, for a moment, had shown themselves.3. Pranksters installed swings on San Francisco's BART.
4. Quality commentary on the Supreme Court upholding the FCC's indecency fines:
I propose this deal: the baby boomers can continue their astonishing string of selling out every single principle they ever claimed to have (R.I.P George Carlin) and keep their precious network television. Meanwhile, Gen X and the Millennials can have the internet. Oh, we're already doing that? Cool.*Previously: Lego Shadow of the Colossus.
*Buy Shadow of the Colossus toys at eBay.

Hm, faithful GameSetWatch readers, it's time to admit something rather naughty. We played a little practical joke on IDG's GamePro.com, because we noticed them 'borrowing' some data from us without crediting.
The following is a cautionary tale about plagiarism and factchecking. If you are a professional journalist, please avert your eyes. If you're at all tickled by 'things game journos do to amuse themselves', please continue reading, forthwith.
