Soooo, it’s been a while. I haven’t dusted off my keyboard to type much over the last few months. Been buys with work, watching football, playing games. I have plenty of games I can review, I may get around to that I just really go from work to gaming and watching sports. Well football, the basketball teams I follow are playing like shit right now. I think for my hometown team they have the talent now they just need the playing time together. For the local team I think they have been rushing way too many changes as of late, fired the coach, let some of the mainstay players leave in free agency, and of course getting hit with the injury bug(which happens to all teams) so this season is apparently already in the tank. Like they have lost so many games I think I’m in a time warp, this team had made the playoffs how many seasons in a row?
Other than that just gaming, I have seen a few movies lately. Yes I watched Justice League, no it wasn’t rant worthy. I could see where ONE director left off and the other had to improve the story. I also see that Director one still has no clue who half of the characters he is using are, which makes for a lousy movie. I am only for directorial vision if the directors vision includes understanding the characters he or she is putting forth. Wonder Woman, awesome the director got it the whole way. Justice League ummmm you can’t just throw people on-screen when you ignore their origin stories and then NOT give us origin stories…. This time though it was at least a cohesive story, even if there were a million plot holes caused by what happened in B v S. Thor was hilarious, saw the Last Jedi too I liked it. I felt it was an interesting new direction but I can see where people are mildly pissed at it.
Nothing really serious to say, just Merry Christmas, I hope all are enjoying time with their family and friends. Now back to gaming…
Yes, I put awesome in air quotes. It’s not that the day was completely terrible nor was it completely great it was all over the place. The start was crazy, I overslept. Then it turned to the weird, then it got back on the good foot and now I am in geek heaven.
My nephew was here over the weekend(plus Monday) and his relationship with sleep was like a coin flip 2 days he slept, 2 days you could swear he was the spokesman for no doz. You put a movie on to get him to sleep(usually Dory, or Dooor Weee) and he laughs, giggles, rolls around, and pounces on you through the whole thing. “Wait, you trying to get him to sleep why were you there for him to pounce on?” Because he kept acting like he wanted somebody to lay there at the foot of the bed so he could sleep in a new room(made up a guest room for him, decked out in yup you guessed it Dory and Nemo). He would walk up to my door, open it, look in, play around in the bathroom water. So if you lay at the foot of the bed he was more inclined to stay in it(not to sleep just stay in the room). Now 2 nights he was up past 2 am, why because he felt like it. 2 nights he went to bed between 10 and 11:30 pm. Dealers choice, granted the dealer ALSO stopped up my bathroom sink but hey shit was fun Unc why you hating. (more…)
I am trying to set up the 500th post for my Blogspot I want it to be something spectacular(IE I am really about to be fucking stalled), so of course I can’t post anything else there until I get done. MY current plan is to maybe discuss the journey it took to get there(since it is 500 over there not here. I think we are still sub buck forty but we are getting close), maybe revisit my first post on blogger/blogspot, check and see what my hundredth and 250th posts looked like and how I have evolved as a writer over that time. Not to say that it was some fabulous journey I think most who read my writing will say that it is conversational and relaxed. The FEW TIMES that I have tried to do something in a more rigid fashion I always seem to mosey back to sitting right next to you and just sharing if not a few laughs a few anecdotes.
I think as a writer that is who I am and who I will always be. I find tips and tricks here to add some pop to what I am writing, sometimes there is floating text, a little inside joke if you will(not in this post yet, I promise), I finally got the pagination code that you see me use here a lot(I am not perfect with it yet. I actually haven’t used it as often as I would like to), it is completely different on here it is <!– —nextpage– > (remove the spaces of course) while you are in HTML mode(for my fellow wordpressers who are afraid that they are creating a wall of text and wish to break it into bite size pages). I will relook up (more…)
Does Mike Ybarra read my blog? Does he listen to Xbox Nation podcast? Cause out of nowhere the very thing I mentioned that “I don’t have high trophy or gamerscore levels because I play MOSTLY multiplayer, online, and there aren’t too many achievements for that.” Welp hold their beer Xbox is here with the save, we got you playa folks gone respect all them Tea bags you give out in Halo, CoD, and Battlefield. I originally heard about this upcoming change for @_Crapgamer where he discussed a windows central article that mentioned they were looking to augment gamerscore. Specifically that since there are a lot of folks who do esports(as well as stream) certain games all day long, whether it be on contract or because they have fans who watch for certain games(I know there are a few streamers I watch just to see them play certain games Fallout 4, Gears 4, etc).
It’s kind of funny right, “You can’t get a job playing video games” except, you can. You can get a few jobs playing, talking about, and reviewing video games. Youtube Gaming, Twitch, Mixer, and Ustream off the top of my head all services dedicated to the viewing of video games. I am curious though, let’s speculate about exactly HOW they could Augment Gamerscore to include say “Newbs Pwned,” “Melons Popped,” or even “Cheesey Combos Executed” (more…)
I have been called MANY things in my life, a casual gamer has never been one of them. Let’s keep it real I have never really been a big podcast fan mainly because I am either gaming, watching sports, reading, watching movies, watching my shows on TV, or just goofing around on the internet and NOT blogging(cause yeah I can’t even use writing posts like this as an excuse) so for somebody to tell me that I am a CASUAL Gamer because my Trophy level on PSN is only level 7 (smh, when you can’t even tell a 6 from a 7 you have issues my dude) is a little shocking. I have like 18k Gamerscore on Xbox and level 7 on playstation(which trust me takes a few hundred trophies which for a guy who MOSTLY enjoys multiplayer games is nothing to sneeze at) okay wait I am getting ahead of myself.
I was catching the Xbox nation podcast tonight(which was a miracle since youtube has been sucking at sending alerts lately and Youtube Gaming sucked at showing me the start of the podcast) because I enjoy some of the hosts gaming videos MAINLY about Xbox of which I am MOSTLY a Convert, when Xbox live dropped my heart was stolen forever blu ray got me to give Sony some love for 5 years, so of course I want to hear news about my preferred console. As usual there were a few Sony Die hard fans in the chat(also known as Pony’s since it rhymes just go with the sophomoric humor) and while some of them really do want to talk about games, even if it is in a trolly fashion others come in to SWEAR we are all liars. Which is always hilarious, like “wow you are calling me a liar for saying I like something, as if you could PROVE somehow that I don’t like what I claim is this thing I spent money on and are possibly CONTINUING to spend money on.” (more…)
The Fuck Is THIS! No, no this is a valid question to ask. I mean we ain even gone get to the fact that they have the words NUTRITIONAL and INFORMATION at the bottom of this picture no no, that is to be tabled to a later discussion. I asked, and the Lady behind the counter said, “the sandwich has EVERY MEAT WE SERVE on it.” Not that I was thinking of ordering it, my affairs aren’t in order, and I personally don’t want to die 5 minutes after eating it nor do I feel like eating salad for the next 6 weeks to get all of that meat out of my body. I mean let’s look at this ignorant shit you have:
- Pepper Bacon(of course it starts with bacon, all cakes must be iced)
- Roast Beef(cause it’s Arby’s it’s their thing)
- Cheddar Cheese
- Angus Beef(cause they want this to be a good and flavorful death)
- Smoked Brisket
- Pit Smoked Ham(I think they believe smoke is a food group
- Swiss Cheese(technically at this point we are at Dagwood Level)
- Roast Turkey(cause yes both Turkey AND BEEF can be roasted
- Chicken Tenders(because if the only thing fried/greasy on this sandwich was bacon they FAILED as sandwich creators *shrug*)
- A Star Cut Bun(to solidify locking your bowels up)
This sandwich is served with a BACKHAND from your cardiologist. Your nutritionist will judge you for 6 months after eating this sandwich. This Sandwich looks like they were dared to put a Subway footlong on a Kaiser/Burger Roll. This sandwich looks like Punishment for coming in last at the strongman competition, “there is not enough meat in your system, we must add more meat to make your stronger!” This sandwich looks like it comes with a waiver you must sign to guarantee that you were of good health before you ate the sandwich and that you death within a week of consumption is in no way Arby’s fault.

While I agree that SALT is a spice, normally it is used SPARINGLY in a dish. To draw out a dishes essence, what folks don’t do is drown something in salt, cook it, then store it in salt, and serve it. I don’t know if it was the preparers first day, or if they thought that they could be the next Salt Bae, or if they were going for a “dry rub” effect.
This is what I do know, that wasn’t Spicy Chicken tenders I got earlier, it was Spicy Salt. I don’t mean that it was KIND of salty, I mean that if it wasn’t for the fact that I topped off my drink BEFORE I left the restaurant then I would probably be a dried up snail on the side of the road. I enjoyed the DBZ movie Lord Slug, I wasn’t trying to become his pompous ass. And I damn sure wasn’t trying to die an ironic death, I just wanted some Spicy Chicken Tenders maybe add a little honey mustard. And the sad thing, once I washed the taste of SALT out of my mouth there was a decent amount of heat. I’m sure there is some chicken down their getting extremely well preserved for the long journey across the plains of “who the fuck taught this muffuka how to cook.” I figure this travesty HOPEFULLY comes down to a few factors (more…)
Eikichi is a dick, yes this is the only way this post can begin. Way back in 07 or 08 when I just got back from Atlanta, pre marital collapse, I returned of course with much shorter hair. When I left in 06 I had past my shoulder locks and when I came back I basically had a low easily maintained fro. The problem with the easily maintained fro was of course it wasn’t my locks, and I didn’t want to go through the relocating process again. So after a good year of letting it grow out, looking scruffy as hell and then trimming it back I had a “fuck it” day.
Now I don’t remember how close to eye patch week “fuck it” day was but I know I grabbed some clippers, went to a mirror and shaved every inch off the top of my head. Now everyone else had a normal reaction: nice cut, you look good, that’s different but no, not Eikichi his ass screams out “Señor Shiny Head”because he’s a 5’8 3/4” DICK and has for the most part screamed it out every mid to late March ever since because that’s about the time of year when I finally shave my head because the weather is warm enough for me to no longer worry about “head colds.” (more…)
Have you ever had that moment, you are at a party and a jilted lover walks up(or one night stand for you Dude Bros) and as a SLIGHTLY drunken argument ensues the discussion of your sexual prowess or lack there of becomes the topic of discussion? Do you want to have wearifiable proof of how well your soldier performed? Do you want to prove that you might not have a foot long but you do have a mouthful? Why do I have a device for you, that’s right the i.Con Smart condom.
Don’t look at me like that, I didn’t invent this shit. I don’t even know how and when somebody decided that we needed a smart watch for our schlongs but it is on it’s way. A British company is making a condom add-on(who we kidding, anybody who buys this unless the condom is required ain gonna buy one they’ll just pop the i.Con on). From the article this bad boy tracks:
- Calories burnt during sexual intercourse – or what any other smart watch calls random dynamic workout.
- Total number of thrusts – I mean if you need proof you aren’t a 2, 7, or 15 pump chump. Maybe you want to test The Mac Man’s 50 pumps theory
- Frequency – Because who doesn’t want to brag about how many times they’ve fucked
- Total Duration – Did you really cum 2 minutes ago and keep stroking or are you still champion lover
- Girth Measurement – Hey “eating a fat dick” is not just a great insult anymore, folks actually want it on the menu
- Speed and average velocity of thrusts – Are you a slow roller or a jack rabbit, this app will tell
- Different Positions – was it REALLY 23 positions in that one night stand Baby
- Average Skin Temp – Did you serve her a hot cock or was it really lukewarm, room temp, make chilly.
