Oh Hollywood, you so crazy

No, not in a fun 1990s “your absurd antics amuse me but generally do no harm” kind of way, but instead, more like in a horrible please come up with a new idea and stop running everything into the ground kind of way.

Oh Hot Wheels, you so crazy…

Hi, I’m Jamie, and if you didn’t already know, I’m a crotchety old man.   Hence the following complaint (Do your best to imagine a garbled old man voice while reading the text below):

In my day (the eighties) we had die-cast metal Hot Wheels and we liked it that way.   If your friend pissed you off, you’d just bean him in the head with a corvette or a station wagon and he’d know you meant business.  Now these. ..  These pathetic substitutes for Hot Wheels are not only poorly constructed,  but look at this ridiculous marketing tie in!  What kids want to play with the VW from Footloose or the convertible that was featured in Beverly Hills Cop?  Why are they selling toys now that should have marketed to me twenty-five years ago!?!

What’s that, you say? Google Ads is serving all sorts of weird PSAs on CreativeJamie.com? The hell you say….

Oh Windows, you so crazy!

When I left the office on Friday, my computer looked like this:

When I got to the office on Monday, my computer looked liked this:

Beautiful!  Still on the shut down screen!  I love it!  I know this machine is running Windows XP and its 2012, but sheesh.

Oh Republicans, you so CRAZY (Or: Why Ryan and Christie?)

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.”  Read the rest of this entry
