This blog, me, and you.

Hey! It's Dave! The Guy Who Writes Here!

I'm going to start writing again. Here, I guess, since there's really no point in coming up with a new blog name. I spend most of my time being unemployed and depressed so I think I need to type more words since I have the free time. I would prefer to delete all the older posts off the blog and start fresh but I figure why bother? Hopefully I'll be able to bully myself into type-vomiting my thoughts out on a daily basis. We'll see.

If you have any potential topics or questions you want answered, you can comment here, find me on Twitter, or if you know me IRL just send a Facebook message. I will mostly be writing about media-related things. I wish that meant in-depth media literacy theory and similarly-intelligent-sounding things, but it will probably just be posts about video games or Honey Boo Boo or a video of me crying and talking to all the empty soda cans in my room.

The Best & Worst of The Best & Worst of WWE Raw 10/8/12

Preface and preamble to all words within:

This is an article born of free time, a triple-dog-dare, and a serious bout of I-Should-Be-Writingism. This blog post, whatever it ends up being, is just me judging the pop culture references made by Brandon Stroud, Editor of With Leather (my favorite sports blog) in his weekly column, The Best & Worst of WWE Raw 10/8/12.This is only for non-direct reference. If he says "This is like that time on Doogie Howser, M.D. when..." then it doesn't get included.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I love professional wrestling. I have watched it for about 25 years and I'm probably going to watch it forever. I really enjoy it. What's that you say? It's fake? Thanks. Thanks for that. I was unaware. Do you want me to blow your mind right now? Everything on TV is fake. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is for real the most 'real' reality show on TV. So eat it.

Anyway, the guy who writes these is a pal of mine (inasmuch as someone you've known only online for over a decade and whose writing career you've followed can be a pal) and so none of this is written with anything approaching maliciousness. This is probably a long intro to a blog post but I'm only writing it once so whateverrrrrrrrrr.

New podcast is up

We did a show. Come peer into the minds of our two guests as they talk us through the processes of running for student government. We ask the hard-hitting questions. Like "who cares dude" and "god this is boring". After the jump.

Wednesday Whoopty-Doo


So first off thanks to @MrBrandonStroud over at With Leather for putting that thing I wrote a couple days ago into the Tuesday Morning Links. If you click on that then me and that site are TOTALLY EVEN STEVENS. Anyway here's this week's Best and Worst of WWE RAW from them, as well as Drew's Funbag from over at Deadspin. I read those two articles every Tuesday like clockwork. Still wondering when some pro wrestling dongshots are gonna show up in one or the other. THE WINNER SHALL HAVE A STRAWBERRY!

New Shit On Netflix Instant Watch Today Watch It Or Don't

Blame It On Rio -- Starring Demi Moore's boobs and some other people.
Blue Mountain State: Season 3 -- I love this show. If you haven't seen it, I know it looks dumb, and almost everyone I know at college watches it because it's "wooo college football/drinking/sex/wooo" but it gets pretty satirical on the subculture surrounding college athletics and honestly, it's not that far-fetched.
Cashback -- Hooooooly crap watch this British movie. If you like boobs, there are boobs. This is a really fun, quirky movie.
Duck Soup -- I've watched this movie every week for six months. It is the best.

Take everything shitty you want to say about this movie or Hollywood's obsession with existing properties or whatever I DON'T GIVE A FART(told mom I'd clean up the site). The original show this movie is based on had a pre-Tim Burton Johnny Depp and it was RAD AS SHIT.

If I had readers I would like to attempt a mailbag column. I know lots of other sites do it, and far better, but whatever. THIS IS THE INTERNET, AND I WILL STEAL ALL THE GOOD IDEAS OF SUCCESSFUL BLOGS OR I WILL DIE TRYING. Well, die is a strong word. I will stay unmotivated and play Skyrim trying? That works.

Follow me on Twitter @Killprint Warning: a lot of foul language and otherwise offensive wording.

Have a day.

Caring is easy. Apathy is work.

A lot of work.

Someone admired by thousands...tens? hundreds? of thousands of people dies. Someone whose career you might have followed for decades, depending on how old you were when he passed. For me, it was 12 years. A dozen years I spent cheering the successes and lamenting the losses. In life he was someone to be admired. Someone whose work ethic was, if not the peak in his sport, then at least the first one out of base camp when it's time to climb.

Someone whose life went to absolute shit in the time before his passing.

NCAA WWE National RAW Championship is War D-D-D-DOUBLE LIVEBLOG

I have no idea why I'm doing this. Last February I liveblogged the entire NBA All-Star Weekend and it was the most exhausting things I've ever done. Writing words is hard, you don't know. So I'm bored and like a lot of people, I have to flip back and forth between two things I want to watch.

Now you might be saying "hey go get a DVR what are you one of them poors or somethin" and to you I say: go eat a D. This is America and if I want to watch two things at the same time I will do it. So I'm just gonna update this as the night goes on. Stick around and refresh now and then, I hit the update button every couple of paragraphs.
