Did you get PokeBombed? I don’t care. Go do something better.

I was literally sitting in the…um…my second office…and I came up with a brilliant new word/phrase:

PokeBomb/PokeBombed/PokeBombing

Definition: the act of jumping in to the line of sight of an unsuspecting Pokemon Go player in order to interrupt their capture and hopefully lure them in to something more productive…like maybe a Taco Bell hat and apron. Those tacos aren’t going to make themselves!

Example: I saw this dumb ass walking around with his cell phone out front of him, so I PokeBombed him with a few of my latest hip-thrust dance moves. My Mom approved the PokeBombing.

We seriously don’t need anymore people walking around staring in to their cell phones instead of paying attention to their surroundings. Please stop.

One Brick at a Time

Just read an article about a scene Will Smith did year’s ago on the Fresh Prince of Belair. I loved that show, and I’m a HUGE fan of Will Smith. There was a story he told about his Dad tearing down this huge wall at his shop and told him and his brother that they were going to rebuild it that summer (when they were on break I assume).

I guess they didn’t finish building the wall that summer, but they did eventually finish it the following spring. When they were finished, their Dad told them, “Now, don’t you all ever tell me there’s something you can’t do.”.

As Will Smith put it, “The thing I connect to is: I do not have to build a perfect wall today, I just have to lay a perfect brick. Just lay one brick, dude.”.

Love that. Just lay one…perfect…brick. Then move on to the next. Eventually, you’ll achieve your goal if you keep moving forward.

TechCrunch…now named iPhone-6-Crunch

For the love of god – everything I keep seeing from TechCrunch is another article stroking the iPhone 6 as the most revolutionary new phone. Jesus Christ…there are plenty of other phones out there that have been doing what the new iPhone 6 is just now doing. Also, all those iPhone phablet haters can STFU now as well – given the mothership has birthed one.

Xbox 360 Entertainment for All Plan

Have any of you seen this? Basically, Microsoft is now subsidizing the cost of Xbox 360’s by wrapping you up in to a “Entertainment for All” plan at $14.99/mo, that I’d be getting ANYWAY because it offers the unlimited Xbox Live service (which you need for online play).

All you have to do is go to Microsoft’s Xbox 360 Entertainment for All Plan page, verify that you’re eligible, and sign up for the service. I guess they start your monthly service right away, and then you get a coupon to take to one of the participating retailers (Best Buy, GameStop, Toys’R’Us, Walmart, or Microsoft Store) to pick up any of the eligible Xbox 360’s for $99 or $149.

I guess you can get the $249 “Holiday Bundle” right now for $99…comes with 250gb Xbox 360, Forza 4 (yes!!) and Skyrim (no!!) – Chuck, you can have Skyrim…not my cup’o’tea.

I’m still on the fence, but Dominic is pressing me hard to pick one up.

Hmm…I’m going to have to pick up the new Forza Horizon game as well…damn it! I guess I need something to hold me over until the new Sim City comes out in February.

National Championship? Roll Tide.

He will always be remembered…roll tide.

Just saw this commercial on ESPN tonight. Love it. Roll Tide ROLL.
