The PAIN of gaming

So I gotta be ready for the new WoW expansion to hit tomorrow but I have a fantasy football draft tonight! Gamer cramp!

Actually do want to play WoW for at least an hour tonight. I went and spent a fortune in in game gold for all heirloom gear on a druid that I’m leveling through the pre-expansion invasions event. I was able to get it to 92 and buy myself an XP boost potion. Gotta get that 100!

I’m predicting a very bad year in Fantasy football this year, because I haven’t paid attention to any Pro stats in a LONG time. I do think I’ll try and draft Dak tonight though!

Now THIS is how you make a snarky takedown

I don’t often read RawStory but this piece about some complaints of the upcoming “Mad Max” movie was hilarious. That’s some snark in a pure perhaps even ‘raw’ state.

 

Edit: Looks like this post worked, so I just want to add, thanks to Brad for a successful move of my website! THANKS! Looks like everything works.

Birth of a new word?

First time I ever heard the term ‘Derp’ was in a South Park episode. They introduced a new character to replace Chef. Who knew then that a new word would enter the lexicon?

Apparently it’s popular enough that even the New York Times knows about it.

 

BigJim found that the earliest know ‘Derp’ was still Matt and Trey but it was in ‘Basketball’. Great catch!

 

 

Ten Days

In ten days the Berial.com URL will be sold at auction. They currently want 1800$ for it. I find this laughable, but who knows, maybe they WILL sell it. I hope they find a buyer, and that buyer wants to buy me out for the same price!

If that buyer isn’t found I wonder what will happen to Berial.com? Guess I’ll just have to wait 10 days to find out.

In the mean time I went ahead and re-upped Berial.org, net and info for two more years. I will probably need to find a new purpose for the website. Something that I will enjoy a bit more. It is a bit frustrating that NO BODY ever reads what I say. I can get ignored for free why should I pay a fee to be ignored!

 

PS: I still have no idea why ANYONE would expect to get $10 much less $1800 for Berial.anything.

EDIT: HA! Jokes on me, they extended the auction till April 24th!

Ineffective taunts

Saw this link to ‘Hot and Not in the SEC‘ a couple days ago on BigJim’s blog.

While I don’t disagree that State’s performance in this years EggBowl is definitely a ‘not’ in that blogs parlance, I must point out that ‘The School Down South’ isn’t an insult and doesn’t work as such the way ‘The School Up North’ does. One of Ole Miss’ points of pride is as a Southern school; the ‘Harvard of the South’ and such. Putting ‘North’ in a reference to them IS the insult. And I must admit it’s one of the best insults I’ve ever heard of for Ole Miss. It REALLY rankles the fans and alumni, because you’re basically calling them Yankees, which they think of as basically the worst thing you can be. (Maybe even worse than being a bulldog!)

So, I just wanted to point out that Chris Low needs to find a more appropriate insult than ‘The School Down South’, for MSU.

 

Where did all the great comics go?

I remember growing up reading Gary Larson’s ‘The Far Side’ and Berkeley Breathed’s “Bloom County”. Even today when I go back and read these guys work I’m amazed by how damn funny and SMART it was. Where is the funny; where is the smart, today?

I read quite a few web-comics, and while I like them, I really don’t think they live up to the funny AND smart standard of Larson or Breathed. XKCD is probably the closest current running comic that comes close. I don’t score him quite as highly simply because he only works with stickmen, but the funny and the smart is certainly there.

What am I missing? Point me to your favorites!
