Call of Duty 2: The Prop Hunt Chapter Or I’ll Never Look at a Chair the Same Way Again

Entertainmnet Rants
Due to popular demand, the first ever sequel blog post is here. In the illustrious 20 post history, never has a topic driven such feed back. Two, that’s right, two people requested expanding on Call of Duty. I never thought I’d get to use the plural of person. Suck it Logan Paul, I’m the king of the Internet now. Sequels can be tricky though. It's a lot of work to top the original. An example of a good sequel is Austin Powers 2. The sequel to the hit film added more quality jokes, Fat Bastard and, well, the writers tried. That doesn’t happen often in a Hollywood film. It wasn’t going to win any Oscars, but it might have won a Teen Choice award, and isn’t that almost as prestigious?…

Horror Movies – Scaring Yourself Stupid Or Check Your Credit Score if You Want to be Frightened

Entertainmnet Rants
In modern times, there are thousands of things to do. Usually, we sit on our ever-expanding asses and surf the internet without a goal. If we used a modest amount of effort, we’d find a wealth of knowledge at our fingertips or activities to participate in. Pretty much, any choice you could make is a good one, unless you’re engaging in some weird fetish club. Don’t do that. And if you’re going to do that, don’t start telling others about it. Keep your turn ons to yourself, perv. Out of all these not fetish related choice, there is one activity that remains socially acceptable that shouldn’t be – going to the movies. I get why people went to the movies back in the 90s. Back then, we really didn’t have…

Call of Duty – The Cesspool of Gaming or Duty is Definitely the Right Word

Entertainmnet Rants
I’m a very competitive person. I don’t think I’m at Michael Jordan levels of psychotic competitiveness, but I’m not that far off. Growing up, I remember playing solitaire, flipping over one card instead of three to raise my chances. I used to stack my roster in any sports video game so the opponents never had a prayer. I didn’t play things I wasn’t good at because I couldn’t handle being bad at something. It wasn’t that I couldn’t deal with losing. It’s just that I preferred winning and losing any sort of competition or game made me incredibly angry to the point that it ruined my day, if not the week. Ok, maybe I couldn’t handle losing. It was for this reason I rarely played video games on-line when the…

Lyrics Breakdown – Despacito Or Slowly… Fade into Obscurity

It means slowly. I’m pretty sure everybody knows this now, but the title of the song means slowly. That should have been our first clue. As a society, we never were good at grabbing context clues. As Megan excitedly watched the Ice Dancing short program at the Olympics on Sunday Night, I figured I would begin ranking Baseball players for the upcoming fantasy season. However something in the performances stopped me from writing, repetitiveness, also known as Despacito. [caption id="attachment_237" align="alignnone" width="349"] That's what they look like? I pictured one being fat.[/caption] You wouldn’t consider Ice Skating as a place where Despacito would play, but the rules for the competition were different from the typical event. For one round of the competition, the dancers were forced to perform to Latin…

The Hudson Bergen Light Rail or Welcome to the Seventh Layer of Hell

Everyday Life Rants
It’s bad enough we’re forced to work for 40 years of our lives. But we also have to sacrifice a good chunk of our week in the office, working on God knows what. Typically, the average American spends 40 hours a week in the office*[note]*The actual number of productive hours at work is probably between 2 or 3 hours a week, and that's if you have an overachiever.[/note]. That’s 1/3rd of our weekday. If you’re actually sleeping eight hours a day, you know, like a loser, you have minimal time to do anything else during the week. It’s one of the most depressing realizations you can have. Think about your average workday. I’m sure most of you are boiling with rage at the thought of it. Every day, we deal…

After a long day’s work, the last thing I want to do when I get home is more work. Personally, I’d much rather sit on the couch, turn on TV and shut my mind off until I’m forced to return to work again. I know this isn’t how life works, but it should be. Don’t we, the working class, deserve a bit of relaxation before being hoisted back into the salt mines?*[note]*If you actually work in a salt mine, I mean no disrespect.[/note]. I'd like to imagine so, but electricity for rants doesn't pay for itself. One of the most time-consuming tasks when getting home from work is cooking. This really shouldn't be difficult. I mean, all that's really required is to find a recipe, cook it, and then eat.…

*[note]*No it is not. Good Lord is it not.[/note] Holidays are weird. There’s plenty of good holidays that bring families and friends together. I’m ok with those. However, there’s an entirely different class of holidays that fail to celebrate anything worthy at all. In fact, many of these holidays don’t even give us the day off. What’s the point of that? Let’s celebrate a day with nothing different other than saying “Happy XDay”. No thanks. Keep your second-rate holidays and give me more Christmases. Every year, there’s holidays we celebrate the completely wrong way. I’m not trying to say there's a right and wrong way to do things, but we miss the point of some of these celebrations. Embarrassingly so. Don’t believe me? Consider these holidays: Columbus Day – Let’s…

*The following reflects my personal experience with temps in the workforce. It is not meant to stereotype temps…too much. Please be advises I am aware that not all temps are like this. The names involved in this and the companies who hired these employees have been changed to protect all involved, namely me. Many of the stories you read are based on truth but add a dash of ranty rage for entertainment purposes.* [caption id="attachment_197" align="alignnone" width="481"] It would be fresher than the current product[/caption] In most offices, employees are barely able to handle a normal day’s work. This wouldn’t be an issue if all the members of a team were qualified for their job, but a recent study shows that 90% of the work force is grossly unqualified for…

Readers, I have a confession to make. This isn’t your normal type of confessional. The statement you’re about to hear may shock you, especially those of you who have known me for a long time. I apologize for bringing such information to your attention, but it’s essential for this post. All I ask is that you keep an open mind and remember, I remain the same person I have been my whole life. If you choose to cut all ties with me, I’d understand. I, Bloggin Hood, watch Hockey regularly. Ah, that felt great to get off of my chest. What? You thought it was going to be a serious confession? Did you even read the title? Come on, pay attention people. Now, I won’t pretend I made this change…

Technology has really come a long way in the past 15 years. I remember in high school, just how different “new age” tech was. My cell phone was roughly the size of a brick and was allowed to make nearly 50 minutes worth of calls in a month (it didn't even have free texting. I was basically living in a monastery). The family computer was a large square with a tower and could not be moved unless you had someone willing to grab the other end of the square. We connected to the internet by plugging in a cord to the land line. Speaking of which, we had a land line that got regular use. Our TVs had antennas attached to them. We also had to hunt our own food…
