Wow, Really… – People got Xbox One earily (Yay!) & but got banned for live for doing so (Boo!)

Viewtiful…

 

Yeah, you read right. Some in lucky souls who pre-ordered from Target got their Xbox Ones’ 13 days sooner than expected. And you would think they wouldn’t able to use it online because Xbox live isn’t properly formatted to the new system yet (or so Microsoft says), but nope at least one user was able to log on & have fun almost straight out of the box. You know people after the whole ‘always online’ debacle a lot of fellows gamers said they wouldn’t give the Xbox One the time of day. I knew though that the system was pretty awesome and I wanted it even a little more than the PS4; my point is that the people who got the Ones confirmed what I already knew – the latest Xbox console is a real winner. The one player in particular couldn’t stop tweeting about the fun he was having, so one more point for the Omnigamer.  Honestly Microsoft’s console could use this good press since its rep been talking a beating… That’s why they shut down all the early Xbox One owners  from live until the launch date  of the console(which is 11/22), which is now causing those people to take their frustration to the internet… Smooth move, Micro, smooth move… Oh well, at least the early reports of the console is good – I still call that a win.

Wow, Really… – Denial Care rap

 

Ok, this one comes from Blu, and honestly I’m not quite sure how to go about this. Basically the fine people at the Oregon Dental Association decided to take a unique route on informing kids of proper oral health care: by producing a rap video entitled ‘Teach Me How to Brushy‘. This is a PSA, no doubt about that; it cheesy, corny, and smacks of playhouse Disney. However it’s gaining quite a bit of popularity and its Cinematography is actually pretty decent. Plus I’m for anything telling people to brush their teeth more often; there are far too many people with stank breath in the world today (and you know who you are –, Listerine, Cool Mint, it’s a good thing). Anyway, enjoy.

 

 

 

This just in (or not) – Wolverine actor, Hugh Jackman, fractures jaw of former Pro-Wrestling Heavyweight Champ.

 

Okay, so if you’re not a fan of professional wrestling, then you probably missed Hugh Jackman making a guest appearance on <WWE Raw Supershow. Yep the Emmy and Tony award winning actor was the show’s guest host mainly there to get a cheap pop (a cheer caused by shameless schmoozing) out of the audience and get free publicity for his latest film.

 

All of a sudden jerky ex-World Heavyweight Champion, Dolph Ziggler and his manager Vickie Guerrero come out to confront the Wolverine star (calling him Batman while he was at it). This all boils down to a match between Ziggler and WWE fan favorite and internet celeb, Zach Ryder, with Jackman in Ryder’s corner. When the easily distracted ref is, well distracted, Jackman winds up his right fist, smashing his adamantium bones right in Ziggler’s chops, helping Ryder get the W.

 

 

 

Well a day later, Ziggler tweeted on his Twitter page:

land in Bikini Bottom 9:30 am, MRI scheduled for 1 pm…..possible fractured jaw #thanksBatman

 

and

 

hairline mandibular fracture. Guess i’ll put my chipotle in a blender for a few weeks, its not ballet #HEEL > heal.

 

 

Fortunately all Ziggler needs is a special mouth guard and he’ll still be able to wrestle. But this goes to show you, you don’t mess with a 6′ 2 Aussie who played a savage mutant with razor sharp claws and who was taught to box by boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard.

 

Well that’s all I got, til next time, this is TBL, hoping my next post won’t be two months later.

Wow, Really… – Splinter Cell Freakout

From the man who brought you Paper work that takes a stand I , Dr.Boss Bronze, brings you something even more disturbing. Splinter Cell Conviction is an excellent game, but even it’s not immune to the freaky-deaky anomalies of our world. See a defeated enemy headbang from beyond the grave as Sam Fisher watches with confusion.

Glitch-slip or Beelzebub: you be the judge!

Wow, really… – Marge Simpson on Playboy

Marge-2
A birth of a new category is a upon us all and it’s called ‘Wow, really.’ This one deals with the radically odd I encounter in the world wide web. Truthfully I cannot think of anything weirder to premier than Marge Simpson appearing on the Playboy cover.

That’s right the timeless homemaker all of us watched on TV over the decade, the woman who probably swears only once a season, is letting it all hang out on the world most well-known gentlemen magizine.

As Old Ben Kenobi would say – “There is a disturbance in the force.”

What led to this decision by new Playboy CEO Scott Flanders (Really…? Flanders? Hidy ho, CEO?) was, and I quote from the CNN.com report: “It had never been done, and we thought it would be hip, cool and unusual.”

Which is true for, at least, playboy because Marge will be the first (and I’m sure won’t be the last) toon to grace their cover. As such, the pose Mrs. Simpson is doing is a tribute to Darine Stern; who in 1971 was the first African American woman to appear on the cover.

Now as for the ‘It had never been done’ part, that’s not entirely true; the sultry Simpson appeared on the cover of Maxim 5 years prior.

Marge-1

Scrubbing their trademark home in the most… Err… provocative way, and inside mag show more than a few racy pictures of her as well.

For playboy and how they’ll portray her, many say that the pictures will be ‘tasteful’ done.

As for me people I’m not quite sure how to take this; sure I can understand where Playboy is coming from. The economy has been tough on all of us, and their trying to grab new, younger readers while still appealing to their normal subscriber base. However Marge being on the cover is like your mother being on the cover, and that scares me (with all due respect to my mother and all mothers in general).

Then again not all people are like me, and those people see Marge as sexy (Deviant Art is proof positive of this). So tomorrow the magazine goes live, and then we’ll all see if the scantly-clad Simpson gambit pays off for playboy.
