Stuff We Dig Vol 66



“Ready Player One”

Prepare for Steven Spielberg to bend your mind once again. The famed director is at the helm of “Ready Player One,” a new film that blends video games and science fiction in a fascinating way. The film is set in the future when humans are more interested in their virtual lives than their real ones. Like even more than now. Things get wild when the creator of the virtual world dies and leaves an Easter Egg for someone to find. Whoever gets it also gets control over the world and the race is on. (In theaters March 29)


“Game Over, Man”

If you love “Workaholics,” then you have to see “Game Over, Man,” a new Netflix film that stars the “Workaholics” trio of Adam DeVine, Blake Anderson and Anders Holm as three waiters who find themselves in the middle of a hostage situation at the hotel they work in. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg produce the film, so you can expect the kind of humor you know from “Pineapple Express,” “Superbad” and their other films. (Premieres March 23)




After its critically acclaimed and award-winning first season, the FX comedy/drama “Atlanta” returns after a prolonged absence. Hollywood’s Golden Boy Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino and Lando in the Han Solo movie) continues to poke fun at the world of Atlanta hip-hop in a way that’s both clever and surprising. (Premieres March 1)


“Silicon Valley”

When last we saw the tech nerds at the center of HBO’s hit “Silicon Valley,” they’d weaseled out of another tough situation and set up yet another tough bout against Hooli. The show has always been good at partnering absurd workplace life with ridiculous characters — it’s like head honcho Mike Judge’s classic film “Office Space” in that way. Soon enough, we’ll find out what’s next when Season 5 debuts. (Premieres March 25)



Snoop Dogg

Just when you thought Snoop Dogg has done everything in his career (we ain’t forgot Snoop Lion, our dude!) the S-N-Double-O-P gives us a new type of G-thang — as in gospel. Yes, Snoop Dogg is releasing a gospel album. It’s a double album, actually, filled with 32 tracks. Since it’s Snoop Dogg, we honestly don’t know what to expect. But we’re hella curious. (In stores March 16)


Titus Andronicus

Punk/indie rockers Titus Andronicus make music that’s smart, loud and interesting and that should be the case on their fifth studio album, “A Productive Cough.” The punk band that takes its name from Shakespeare is also covering Bob Dylan on this album, if you want proof that nothing with Titus Andronicus is too predictable. (In stores March 2)



The World’s Largest Pac-Man

We’ve all played Pac-Man at some point in our lives, but have you ever played Pac-Man like this? Meet the World’s Largest Pac-Man, a nine-foot tall, arcade-style game that you’re more likely to find at Dave & Buster’s than someone’s house. But hey, it could be in your house. If you’ve got $11,000. (Available via Hammacher Schlemmer)


The Reheatza Microwave Crisper

First off, cold pizza is delicious. But sometimes you want your leftover pizza reheated like it just came out of the pizza oven. For that, you should try The Reheatza Microwave Crisper, which takes your leftover pizza and cooks it up in a new way using your microwave. The special dish makes the bottom crisp again, so the pizza doesn’t get soggy. Sounds like a huge win, whether you’ve got the munchies or not. (Available for $44.99 on Amazon)
