Starting next week I will have daily and weekly posts in an attempt to increase the regularity of new posts. Every day I will feature a track of the day. I would be lying if I said this wasn’t SEO or traffic related. Anyways, the songs will always be chosen for a specific reason based on my moods or sometimes there are just really badass songs regardless of mood that will be worthy of noting for the day. The songs posted will include a little description about why that song was posted and remember that there will be an eclectic mix of music. These posts will be daily and along with that I have also added weekly posts for each day of the week. The schedule will begin next week and will apply as follows:
Monday: Stat Line Of The Week (Sports)
Tuesday: Swelling Of The Week (Rant)
Wednesday: Swolley Award (Will be explained in first weekly post)
Thursday: Hate For The Week
Friday: This Is Why We Are Fucked
Figured I would add some organization and continuity to the blog. By no means is this a promise that there will be a constant flow of applicable or relevant information. In fact it might even mean the contrary. There might just be an oral defecation of words that essentially amount to nothing. Either way I’m fine with it. Just remember, if I have something nice to say its because I’m lying.
Coming this Bowl Season: The 2012 BCS Championship. Most would think I’m referring to the Bowl Championship Series. Not this time. Get ready for the colossal match-up between powerhouse molesters Jerry Sandusky and Bernie Fine in the first ever Neverland Ranch sponsored BCS (Butt-raping Children Series) Championship game. Both competitors have put together some astounding resumes that easily warrant prosecution and have managed to significantly damage the reputation of two extremely prestigious college sports programs. Both have horribly creepy stories that leave the mind to only wonder how demented these 2 people actually are. If I had to give the advantage to someone I will give it to Fine. Sandusky seems to be alone in his quest for the ultimate accomplishment of being a child-rapist champion but Bernie Fine has the support of his wife. Although Sandusky has this mysterious element to his case that he was possibly prostituting these boys out to other rich white sexual predators. Could be a secret weapon. Anyways, Fine’s long time spouse has been aware of his molestations for years and not only that, she is quite a disgusting person as well. After decades of Syracuse basketball players slamming Mrs. Fine, I’m sure sexual deviance is just as normal as taking a walk down the street. Although judging from the looks of her I don’t she takes too many of those walks.
Attention People: We are a pretty fucked up group. The more we add people to this world, the more we will continue to see people like Sandusky and Fine. The scary part is how dark and disturbed a lot of us are. Clearly we all aren’t this fucked up but the line is thin between not crossing those social/criminal boundaries and falling victim to disgusting and socially/criminally unacceptable behaviors. The worst part is the system in which these events have happened in. The system promotes the idea that activities like the ones Fine and Sandusky were engaging in must be kept as discrete as possible. The magnitude of the things these 2 men were doing make people go into a rage and start blaming everyone they can possibly assign some responsibility to. Joe Paterno now has a giant gash in his legacy as a great football coach. Yet now he has no job and will essentially go into exile until his death, which probably won’t be too far from now. People like Joe Pa and Boeheim should not be held accountable for all these actions by two very disgusting people. I agree that they probably could have stopped some of the offenses, and maybe less people would have been hurt but where are the parents in this whole things. If they didn’t know anything was going on then they are bad parents. If they did know something was going on and didn’t do enough to get these two sickos put in jail then they are just about the worst parents a kid can have. We need to really start assigning a lot more responsibility to parents in this country. Especially since most of them are terrible and the worst ones are having the most children.
At the end of the day those of us not involved with either or these horrible scandals can be happy that being “Sandusky’d” is officially becoming a phrase in the Urban Dictionary. Sandusky’d: an event or occurrence of extreme, radical, violent, and/or comical rape. If it were used in a sentence: After icing their own kicker in the final seconds the Cowboys really Sandusky’d themselves.
After what seems to have been a lifetime, the cast members of Arrested Development have finally confirmed production of a movie and one final season of the greatest television show that ever existed. This past Sunday, the cast and creator Mitch Hurwitz were at the New Yorker festival when they announced that the Arrested Development story would contain at least a few more chapters. Although I wish the show could have continued its original run I will take what I can get.
However, it is hard to predict whether or not the cast and writers can create the same magic as before. It has been 5 years since the show aired on FOX and the Arrested Development camp is saying that the target release date will be sometime in 2013. Cast members have obviously gotten older and the 2 kids of the show (Maeby and George Michael) are now well in to adulthood. Although we have not seen much of Alia Shawkat (Maeby) since the show went of the air, Michael Cera (George Michael) can attribute most of his success to this show. AD gave Cera an acting identity and that eventually gave way to his breakout role in Superbad.
Over the next year and a half there will be a lot of hype about the new season and the movie. To those of us who have paid attention to Arrested Development rumors for the last 5 years this will be business as usual. The recent announcement gives me hope because this one seems official.
Mitch Hurwitz has said that the final season will be about 10 episodes and will focus primarily on one character in each episode. The culmination of these episodes will of course be the movie when all the stories come back together for a Bluth family reunion! A deal is currently being worked with Showtime and Netflix for those 10 or so episodes. If you are one of the poor souls that has never had the chance to enjoy Arrested Development then I will leave you with a clip for your viewing pleasure. If you have seen the show and dont like it… Well just don’t admit that out loud because it will only indicate that you clearly have a vacant space bewtween your ears.
Recently I have made the decision to start my own blog despite the fact that I spend many hours of my week writing professionally for a website . I have decided that I can no longer site idly by without commentary on things that are noticeably unacceptable. During the first regular season game of the NFL season, NBC aired a trailer for a new Hugh Jackman movie titled “Real Steel”.
For starters the movie’s title displays an impressive lack of creativity, but that is nothing compared to the content of this futuristic boxing movie. While watching the preview I assumed that it was some sort of joke and the movie trailer presentation was meant as a misdirection for something else. As the trailer continued I realized, sadly, that it was an actual movie with an actual star trying to actually pretend that it might pose as some sort of blockbuster. But OH!!.. Its in 3D! Well that ought to make up for every other shitty element I saw in the preview. Only problem is that is impossible. Not even a collection of the best screen writers and directors could turn this abomination into anything remotely tolerable. So this is where we have come to on the movie front in American. Well, its not just movies. Music and TV are also included in this group of upsetting media and entertainment. We just come up with a formula for a movie, song, show, or whatever, and plug in the pieces as if it was color by the numbers.
After years of using this formula the entertainment industry has deteriorated to a point where good movies are made once every… who knows at this point. The gap between good movies is constantly growing. There are so many bad movies being made its incredible. We used to at least get a few serviceable movies a year. Ones that weren’t great but were at least tolerable, and weren’t so bad that I became so fed up that I created a blog. If it gets any worse then you will probably hear about me on the news committing some heinous act(s). I literally can’t even consider going to theater to see a movie anymore. Movies are ridiculously priced and terrible. The only movies being made now are shitty remakes, boring love stories, comic book movies, visually appealing 3D movies, and horrors movies that feature the same stories and plot that 50 others before it have done (sometimes they even combine some of the categories into a synergistic avalanche of shit). It almost seems like a waste of time to give any new movie a chance.
I’m currently 26 and since 2007 I’ve been to the theater twice. I often refuse to see new movies just out of fear of wasting my time, and given my life habits I’m not sure how much time I have left. You might say, well how could I say they are bad if I don’t watch them? All you have to do look at the components and the content. If you tell me there is a new candy bar made of elephant shit and hyena semen, I wouldn’t have to try it to tell you that it will taste like how Adam Richman’s (Man vs. Food) shits must smell.
