:: sneaks in ::hellloooooo????
So how about that Pirates-Cubs ending, huh?How does that feel walking off?
Daily Update!? You kiddin me?! Daily update!? There's no NEWS to update!
After chatting with WWE Network Rep Eddie C, I do indeed have the Network free for the rest of the month and the $9.99 on my bank account is just a hold that they let go after a couple days. Wahoo!
Doing college work, don't know if I will finish today.
McDonald's new sirloin burger is pretty damn good. I don't know about $5 good, but good.
That's one thing I definitely don't miss about school.
Basically a book report, 3 pages so far.
So fucking stupid. The building needs to be condemned and demolished.
I was really good at that stuff, luckily, but I had to do it now I would blow my head off first.
"Nobody tell McQuaid he's good! If he knows it, he'll leave this shitty program!"
MK X coming out for 360 in june, I hope you can unlock Goro without paying.
Shit, even a Big Mac is close to $5 these days.
Update! There is no news to report!
Yeah, the school part.
YOU DID THIS!
But the history.....
You ain't kidding. Fast food was supposed to be the unhealthy but cheaper alternative for people. Now it's expensive and unhealthy. Not a good pairing.
"I'm straight outta Compton! ...but my husband's from Northridge."
Super Size me was the start of it.McDonalds had to change... so they decided to not offer super sized things, and just move everything up a price point. They received a TON of positive press about adjusting to a healthier lifestyle, and thus they just kept that process going little by little.
Never did I want a Big Mac more than I did after seeing Super Size Me
I watched it with a group who walked out swearing to never eat McDonalds again. They got drive-thru on the ride home.
Which is funny considering apparently nobody wanted the healthier items, just the junk.
It was really just win/win/win for McDonalds. They have unbelievably savvy management.
The artisan chicken is pretty good if a little undersized. And at 350 cal/6g of fat, you can order fries with it and not destroy your daily intake
Why did this take all day to be posted? And now I'm having back account issues. My cable company denied my bank card, yet somehow my bill got charged twice and nothing notated on my online account.
You can't tell that by the press for them nowadays. Reading Yahoo and Business Insider, you'd think the company was lucky to be operating right now.
Fuck it. That's all I have to say about life in general and everything in it right now. Fuck it.
"Wanna get away?"
Get in my face, stuffed crust pizza. GET IN MY FACE NOW!
Their child/minority targeting definitely falls under questionable morals... but they know their client base.
Haven't tried the Artisan yet. Although I am pissed off they just ditched the deluxe quarter pounder. Burgers have TOMATO, dammit.
Do we have more painful death executions than the injection the Boston bomber kid is going to get eventually? To paraphrase Kill Bill, he must suffer to his last breath.
To quote Jigsaw: "Suffering? You haven't seen anything yet."
Can always go the Law Abiding Citizen route.
Carl's Jr about to go full Paunch Burger: a burger with hot dogs and potato chips on it
Ewwwwwwwwwwwww. Sweet Paunch ref though.
I miss the McDonald's gang. Grimace, Mayor McCheese, Fry Guys - although they did just bring back the Hamburgler, but I'm not a big fan of child predators.
..this is not the day?
Where da white women at?
Hamburger is back, and he's like the fifty shades of grey guy.
I really hate this avatar.
If the Wizards and Grizzlies win, are all G7's on Sunday?
Garfield said it best: You see Odie? When I order a hot dog with everything on it, I want everything on it. Including a hamburger.
Isn't there a state that can still get this done by firing squad?
I think Utah still has firing squad.
Your avatar is the best avatar the Blog has ever seen. Sorry Marv.
"Oh yes. There will be blood."
Not Daily Update. It's the goddamn night thread.Getting really fucking tired of the sloppiness around here, guys.
I'm bigger than you are! I'm higher in the food chain! GET IN MAH BELLY.
I accept you and Art's praise.
What are we watching at eight!?
Don't blame me I picked PN News.
Maybe push that back to 830... see if we can get more support?
I like the Pearl Jam song Bugs a lot more than I should.
I'm good with that. Any preferences
Saw Mad Max today. It was good, wasn't like earth shattering or anything, but I enjoyed it.
Their new child size is 512 ounces.
I was thinking about In Your House: It's Time... attitude brewing...
Roughly the size of a child.
I just watched that a bit ago lol
I'll jump in.
Just started watching season 2 because I know how to party on a Friday night.
I just want to stay away from some of the big stuff that we've all seen... WM, SummerSlam, Rumbles.Anything you have in mind?
I haven't watched an episode of Parks in a month or two. So it's coming up on the time to marathon the whole show again.
My brother and I were talking about how awesome and ridiculous it is last night. Do I trick them? I DON'T THINK THEY'RE THAT DUMB!
I vote for WCW Fall Brawl 96.
No Mel Gibson, no buys.
Fall Brawl 96.
What gives, Biff?
That works for me
I'm a roof baby now.
Scott's getting close to that, I like it. Sting was amazing.
It works better as an experimental/weird song than HeyFoxyShamalongadingdong does. "Bugs in my shoes, bugs in the way I feel about you"
That's probably the smartest idea you've had since the last time you had a marathon.
Dammit, I'm hungry.
So WCW Fall Brawl 96 at 8:30?
Some dude on reddit tried using CM Punk as an example when I said WWE wouldn't let Joe keep his name.
That's me on a weekday.
I can't remember who, maybe it was Chris Hero, who said he was willing to give them the rights to his name so he could use it but they still wanted him to change it.
That dude was boned from the jump.
I don't think it was Hero.
Took the peeps out for drinks after a long week, now I have a splitting headache. I seriously think I'm going through some kind of withdrawal after that month of painkillers because I never get headaches and I've had them off and on all week.
Works for me. Haven't seen it in quite a long time.
Every time I see someone say "No Mel, no buys", I think of Dennis dressed as Mel in Lethal Weapon 5. "Sounds like you guys are having a nice party, why wasn't I invited?!"
What did Harry Smith do to get turfed from WWE? Seems like he'd be someone they'd be all about?
That accent on that line is just so terribly hilarious.
He sucked, now he's actually a good power guy.
He did something to get heat in the locker room, can't remember what though
The took him off TV and wondered why he never got over.
I think the example is valid, IE the WWE letting Joe keep the name, as the did with Punk, but it IS flawed in the sense that although they let Punk keep his nom de plume, they made him alter it enough that although he was still CM Punk, he wasn't the C.M. Punk that he was on the indie scene. With that in mind, how would Joe come to the same sort of arrangement? Would he be Samoa J.O.E. ? Samoa Jo? SamoaJoe? It really doesn't work.
Pacific Islander Joe
You're missing out. You want old, broken Mel? Watch Expendables 3. The character HAS to move on, and someone the caliber of Tom Hardy playing him is actually one of the best case scenarios. Remember how utterly FUCKED Indiana Jones fans got? They got Shia "I'm not an artist" Lebeuof.
Wait...are you trying to say there is a difference between C.M. Punk and CM Punk? There is none. Punks owns that name because WWE wasn't trying to trademark everything when he came up. That is why the comparison is stupid.
Didn't they just release the El Diablo, the burger with a full serving of fucking jalapeno poppers on it? Jesus. It's like they're on a mission to see just how massively obese they can get the average, low income American.
Dreamer was Corbin's mystery opponent.
"That was very fast...and a little bit too furious."
Needed to get out of that system and develop his skills outside the WWE. Smith will be back at some point in the near future.
I was under the impression that they came to a mutual understanding that Punk owns the rights to one of them, and WWE owned the rights to the other.
Another waste of talent, Carlito. Although calling him "Carlito Caribbean Cool" was stupid.
Getting FATTER when he was supposed to lean out probably didn't help much.
He was always mediocre in my book.
Does Schmidt look black to you, fat drug supplier bitch?
Carlito was his own waste of talent.
Unlike the good ol' days where if you needed to change your name in a different territory, they did 30 seconds before you went out for your initial match.
He made it to the correct level, IC/US range.
Agreed. He should have been Carlito Colon. Dunno why they play the FUCK out of lineage at some moments, and seem ashamed of it at others. His catchphrase, the apple, his snarky attitude...all of that was GOLD.
He didn't get fat until after he was released.
As shallow as WWE is these days talent wise, relying on Kane and Big Show etc, they really should have developed and pushed guys like Carlito, Morrison, MVP, Masters, among others further then they did. Maybe they'd have made main event by now.
WWE isn't shallow on talent. They have an insane amount of talent right now.
There's one near me with a McDonald's and a Jack In The Box on opposite corners. Carl's is always empty. And their food is superior.
Carlito I thought was a head case with no motivationMasters a roid headAnd the other two asked to leave.
Talent with a push, then.
Those guys just got tired of the bullshit. In the old days, you could treat the boys like that because they were all emotionally stunted. There had to be something pretty wrong with you to want to live that lifestyle.
The number of talent with an effective push is way below what it should be given the talent they have. I agree.
Has there ever been a War Games match where the faces won the coin toss?
Masters has improved monumentally on the independent scene. He's a guy they hamstrung, sabotaged, and buried all seemingly for HHH's own shits and giggles. He's one of the guys that spring immediately to mind when I think of people who OUGHT to be doing the whole "US Title Open Challenge" bit instead of John Cena.
When did Orton develop the patchy beard? Was that when he went to Smackdown in 2011?
Well he started off with something great with the Masterlock Challenge... then Cena beat it.
Has he? That's great. He always seemed like a decent enough wrestler, just roidy as hell. I missed his whole second run there though.
Yeah I feel like it was right around when the Christian program started.
Schmidt can't even do the heroic sacrifice right!
I thought Lashley beat it. Speaking of guys who could have been more.
I don't think Lashley is on WWE. They did a lot to get him up the card. He was in the most hyped match at Mania 23 with Vince and Trump.
There....kind of still does. I mean, 9/10ths of the guys and girls who make a go at the field of pro wrestling burn out, wash out, or find something better to do that doesn't rely on them beating their bodies to shit day in and day out for nickel and dime wages. That last 1% stick it out and MAYBE...MAYBE they go beyond wrestling in a high school gym in front of 12 drunk hillbillies.
Okay Fall Brawl 96 time
For sure. He washed out big time.
Just started the show.
Holy fuck. The classic SNL is Kevin Spacey/Beck tomorrow
I agree with you, Art. Lashley failed on his own, once he opened his mouth. At that point, he became Virgil on steroids.
I bet Scott Hall signed with GFW because his son is in the Bullet Club in NJPW and will probably end up in GFW.
It cannot be overstated just how cool Hall & Nash were at this time.
"Is that the grenade?""That's my dick!""Why is it hard?!"
Tony/Heenan/Dusty was the only announcing trio that ever worked.
22 Jump Street is the rare comedy sequel that's better than the first.
