Halo 4 is awesome, but not perfect – at least that’s what i heard from the video game website IGN. Not having played Halo since I got stuck in that hanger in Halo 2, I’m a little out of my element, but I did read the reviews, and the reviews are impressive.
But take a close look at that score – 9.8. That’s a precise score, huh? I’m not saying that video games aren’t serious business and don’t deserve a specific number grade, because they do, but think about this for a second. We can deduce that since the game is receiving the Editors’ Choice seal of approval that their system’s perfect score is a 10, but the game didn’t merit a perfect score. 10 would be perfect, but Halo 4 got a 9.8. Why not a 10? What merits a two tenths deduction? That is bizarre. Was it the packaging? Is the disc too shiny? Did Master Chief not stick the landing? If anyone knows, hit me up. Or, if you have copy of IGN’s rubric, that’s even better!
Oh Fox News – the gift that just keeps on giving. I try to stay off their site because they just make it too easy… it’d be like if I were a hunter (and I’m not) and I did all my hunting at a game preserve where they kept the birds under lock and key until right when I got to that spot and then they flushed them out in front of me… and yet, I still ended up shooting my hunting partner in the face. That’s a good enough analogy for what has happened as President Obama has won a second term without anyone officially saying who won Florida and it’s 29 Electoral Votes (and it looks like Obama will be declared the winner of Florida) when Fox news posts an article that neither blames Mitt Romney for losing nor credits Obama for winning. Instead, it’s the mainstream media that unfairly influenced the election with their liberal bias while forgetting that Fox is part of the mainstream media. Continue reading
If you’ve dropped by the site in the last year or so, you probably know who I voted for, but if there was any doubt, check it:
Yeah, I went with Barry O. That’s how I roll. Things were going well at my polling place early this morning, but I recommend you vote as soon as possible, just in case there is a problem – then you’ll have time to sort it out.
Go vote! It’s the coolest!
Today is election day – don’t forget to vote! They might even give you one of those bad ass “I voted!” stickers!
If you haven’t decided who to vote for yet, don’t let me sway you…
I had planned an entire series of “I’m voting for Obama” posts, but Hurricane Sandy screwed that up. Anyway, here is the penultimate post on why I’m voting for Obama.
(Unfortunately, I don’t have time to unleash the humongous essays on various issues I had planned, so I’m only providing the Cliff Notes version on limited topics.) Continue reading
During the first presidential debate (I’m only one debate behind – awesome!) Governor Romney mentioned that while he did love Big Bird, if he were elected president, he would stop the subsidy to PBS. This comment has inspired me to do two very scary things: 1) look up details on government spending and 2) math.
In case you missed Romney’s quote from the debate, here it is, in all of it’s out of context glory:
“I’m sorry Jim, I’m going to stop the subsidy to PBS. I like PBS, I actually love Big Bird. I like you too, but I’m not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for.”
One of my buddies is not able to make it home to vote this year, and he is getting his New Jersey Absentee Ballot on. Kind soul that he is and being well aware of my pension for all things wacky, he sent me a pic so I could enjoy the names of the various political parties.
“Did you ever see that episode of Diff’rent Strokes “The Bicycle Man?” Never mind…”
Obviously, this photograph is hilarious. The girl looks pleasantly surprised while Mitt Romney is wearing more of a “I built that” sort of look on his face. So, while I’m sure the options are limitless, I prefer to maintain that the young lady was pleasantly surprised by the ample junk in Governor Romney’s trunk. Badonkadonk.
The caption “The GluteBoost is working!” comes to mind because of this “news” story, in which a 61-year-old teacher named Ellen Vick reported that a student put something in her coffee cup. My understanding is that investigators believe that a student put three capsules of GluteBoost into her coffee, and apparently, GluteBoost is an “All Natural Buttocks Enhancement Supplement.” That is awesome. Apparently, the kids like a big ass and certainly believe that it is never to late too tap dat. WORD.
HIT THE MUSIC!!!
I’ve decided that for part 1 of my “I’m voting for Obama” series, I’d point you in the direction of an infinitely superior writer in the personage of Mr. Peter David:
Who would have guessed that Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney would be so hilarious? The dude is straight up funny, and that’s no lie. Here are some of his funniest lines from the campaign trail.
Since he’s already done the “Romney’s Mouth, Meet Romney’s Foot – Statement Edition,” I guess he thought another round was due. I imagine that right about now, President Obama is sitting in a room, consulting a calendar. “Hm… it’s not my birthday, it’s not Christmas… Well, either way, I guess I should call Mitt Romney and thank him for his thoughtful gift.” Continue reading
I like to poke fun at Mitt Romney as he’s someone I genuinely disagree with. Now, his status as “someone I genuinely disagree with” has changed after the events of the last few days, which I will briefly recount in the order they occurred. Continue reading
Politicians must text, right? It’s a standard mode of communication these days and I’d have to imagine it’s an invaluable tool during the constant on the go of a presidential campaign. Here’s what I imagine the texts exchanged between Mitt Romney and his campaign manager look like.
Also, 10 bucks says Mitt uses a Blackberry.
So… let me see if I can understand this.
Mitt Romney has chosen Paul Ryan to be his running mate. When I heard this, I said, “Who? Oh, wait… now I remember – that fucking guy? That’s crazy.” Continue reading
If you thought I wouldn’t vote for a ticket that had a dog listed as vice president, well… you were mistaken.
