In the midst of their five night engagement at Madison Square Garden, members of U2 took a bit of time off from their usual gig. First, Adam Clayton and the Edge made a surprise appearance at the 20th anniversary party of fansite @U2, joining a tribute band onstage to play a couple of songs. Then, the entire band sat down with the Scotts for the U Talkin' U2 To Me? episode years in the making, including multiple I Love Films segments and the band finally giving the Scotts some swag. (Still no t-shirts.)
First we had Simon & Simon, Hart to Hart, then Too Close for Comfort (!!), and finally, Bosom Buddies.
The creators of Parks and Recreation often express their fandoms through their Nerd Spirit Animal, Ben Wyatt. After dropping references to Catan, Batman, baseball sabrmetrics to name but a few, Ben's geeky awesomeness reached a new height in a recent episode, in a scene where he shows off his new board game, the Cones of Dunshire. (Poorer quality version for non-USians) The pretend game was created specifically for the scene by Mayfair Games, makers of Settlers of Catan.
