There are a lot of things to say about Fast & Furious 6, which opens this weekend. We could talk about cars, or explosions, or the many new and interesting ways cars can explode now, in 2013. We could discuss new characters, familiar faces, and dead characters who are now alive again. We could ponder why director Justin Lin and writer Chris Morgan are now brazenly retconning everything in sight after making the last four movies in the series together, as though they are being chased by the Action Movie Continuity Police.
We could even just sit around and discuss what exactly Tyrese is supposed to be doing, most of the time. The Verge staff is full of Fast fans, and I’m not sure anyone actually knows.
But here’s a bigger thing to…
Multibillionaire Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen is set to release his next project this summer: the major label debut of his band, The Underthinkers. The LA Times reports that the record features Chrissie Hynde from The Pretenders, Neville Brother Ivan Neville, and former Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh, and that all the money from album sales will go toward educational programs at his Experience Music Project museum in Seattle.
You might not guess it, but Allen is an accomplished guitarist, as evinced by the impressive blues shredding in the video below. The LA Times notes that the 60-year-old Allen claims to have “rarely gone a week without picking up a guitar,” helping to keep the Idea Man balanced over the years. His album, titled E…

“What if it wasn’t a green light? After all, green can just be so incredibly boring, old sport. What if it was a teal light? Or an emerald light. Yes, I like the sound of that. The emerald light.”
“What about the lime light?”

Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim remains to be precisely what its property recommends with even more footage of huge robotics combating huge beasts. If that seems like something you ‘d like to see for yourself, take a look below at the brand-new “official major trailer.” If not, understand that you’re losing out on this big-ass metal dude all like BOOOOOSH in this moron monster’s face.

Now You’re Just Bragging: Lamborghini Makes A One-Of-A-Kind, Jet Fighter Looking Lamborghini For Itself
This is the Lamborghini Egoista, a 5.2-liter V10, 600-horsepower supercar that can hit 0-60 in under two seconds. It was designed as a one-of-a-kind to celebrate the carmaker’s 50th birthday. For my 50th? I dunno, maybe somebody will come scatter flower petals at the site of my failed spaceship launch.
To get out of the vehicle, the driver must remove the steering wheel and rest it on the dashboard, open the dome with an electronic command, stand up in their seat, sit down on a precise point of the left-hand bodywork, then swivel their legs 180 degrees from the inside of the cockpit to the outside of the vehicle. At this point they can set their feet down and stand up.”
“It is a car for itself, a gift from Lamborghini to Lamborghini, resplendent in its solitude. The Egoista is pure emotion, Never Never Land, which no one can ever possess, and which will always remain a dream, for everyone.”
A car nobody can possess, huh? We’ll see about that! *making phone call* Hello, Lamborghini? I’ll give you $ 7,500 for it — final offer. Hello? HELLO? Dammit, it looks like they really are playing hardball.
Hit the jump for shots from all angels and a video of the cockpit closing and engine starting.
The Hulu Plus app for Android has a new update, and the most noticeable change is that its player UI to closer match the one on its website and in iOS. It also brings features from those platforms like 10 second skip back and a preview thumbnail in the scrub bar. Hulu also claims it’s rebuilt “for optimized awesomeness” with reduced buffering, better playback, and more device compatibility. Finally, in a move that should make plugging in your HDMI-out a little easier, it supports remote control navigation from game controllers and “similar peripherals.” A picture of the new UI is above, check out the old version after the break or just hit the source link to try it out for yourself.
