Very often I find myself in situations where I just don’t have it in me to be an outright asshole. That doesn’t stop me from being one in my head though. I try to be nice to people, even if they’re annoying the shit out of me. I try. Because I want people to be nice to me. And if I’m not nice to strangers, then Karma is going to rear her ugly head (I meant beautiful, Karma! Don’t smite me!) and strangers are going to be mean to me.
Tonight I was standing in line at a gas station, waiting to pay for my gas. An old lady got in line behind me and out of the blue asks me if there’s a pay phone anywhere nearby. I thought long and hard about it and couldn’t think of one, even though I’m sure I’ve seen one in that area before. I gave her my best guess and made sure she knew I wasn’t entirely sure, and left it at that.
She then decided to tell me WHY she needed it.
I DON’T GIVE A FUCK.
Is what I said in my mind. The line I was standing in wasn’t moving, so I had nothing else to do but listen to her blabber on and on about shit I didn’t care about. But at the same time, the line wasn’t moving. I didn’t have a quick exit.
So on and on she went. I had to find out she left in a hurry and forgot her cane, so she felt as if she might fall at any moment. Somehow that turned into how she had broken her toe, or her foot, I’m not sure which because the longer she talked, the more I thought of swallowing a glass full of Ebola just to get out of that conversation.
Somehow that turned into how she fell and broke both of her elbows, and how she had to wear her casts and blah blah blah fucking shut the fuck up blah.
I don’t give a shit. I really don’t. I don’t know her, I don’t know her life, and I don’t care to know about her life. I sure as fuck didn’t ask to hear it.
I’ve read good articles before, usually I’m the one writing them, but this one is so good it makes me want to rub Rob’s butt. Wait, what?
If you’re a gamer and you’ve been dealing with the bullshit going on lately, this is a piece you don’t want to miss. If you’re not a gamer who hasn’t been dealing with the bullshit going on lately, this is a piece you don’t want to miss.

The above is an e-mail sent by Intel to one of the #GamerGate supporters who have been part of Operation Disrespectful Nod: A co-ordinated campaign to target the advertisers of gaming websites who pushed the original slew of ‘Gamers are Dead’ hit pieces, and have continued to just generally be antagonistic fuckwits in the weeks, following.
People have been e-mailing the advertisers to let them know they’re not particularly thrilled at being called racist, misogynistic white guys when they are often none of those things, and that they cannot in good conscience continue to buy that advertiser’s goods or services so long as they support a publication which perpetuates these stereotypes.
In some circles (i.e. people with access to a dictionary,) this is known as a ‘boycott’, to some journos and seemingly the majority of anti-GG…

Well, movie fans, it looks like reboots, at least for the time being, are here for the long haul. Sequels are also being brought in to stave off the reboots of certain films, at least for the time being.
To start, here are some movies reported to be happening that I have thoughts about.
1990s Flatliners is apparently going to get a reboot. Because of course it is. The original, starring Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon was an amazingly good movie. It’s still one of my Kiefer favorites, and it’s a creepy ass movie. If you haven’t seen it, check it out before the reboot comes out. I’m on the fence about whether I want to see the new one or not. The original was so awesome.
Disney’s Flight Of The Navigator is also apparently going to be a reboot. An awesome movie from way back in 1986, it starred Joey Cramer, Paul Reubens, Cliff De Young, and a young Sarah Jessica Parker. Again, the original is amazing stuff, but this is a reboot I’ll definitely check out. I’ll always love the original, but a new one could be fun, if nothing else.
Naturally there’s an entire list of reboots and sequels happening that I really don’t want to talk about, because naturally I’m only bringing up those I care about. You can see more by doing a Google search or checking out this site. Now, for updates on the stuff I’ve mentioned before.
By now I’m sure you’ve seen the Pun Dog floating around the web…
And of course there’s the Bad Joke Eel…
I love them both. There’s probably a bunch more animals telling jokes, and I’m sure all of them are great. The other day I was hanging out with my dog, he’s a miniature pinscher and his name is Redd. We call him Little Redd Dog so much he probably thinks it’s his actual name. I took some pictures of him and realized I could use some of them to make some pun dog memes of my own, and so I have. I’ve been putting them on my Facebook page, so if you follow that (which you probably shouldn’t, but if you’re here, well…) then you’ve probably seen them. I’ll continue to post them there when they come out, but here’s a couple I’ve done. I’ll also have them here on their own page. If you’d like to share them or pass them around or whatever, you should know how to get them by now.
Here’s Little Redd Pun Dog.
