There is so much to blog about and so little time/I haven't been paying enough attention to my site. So here goes, some random points to munch on.
Apple Watch...who gives a flying shit?
The Apple Watch is about to come out and people are about to cum out of their pants. I still don't get the importance of any "smart" watch, let alone the Apple Watch. It looks beautiful, sure, but Apple products rarely look bad. But if that is the number one selling point, then that's a huge fail. I'm never right about these things, so for all I know the Apple Watch will dominate the world and matter. Whatever, I still don't it.
Mortal Kombat X looks bad as fuck
I personally believe that Mortal Kombat is the most important fighting game franchise EVER! From the initial days of Street Fighter vs Mortal Kombat debates, to the weird 3D transitions, then to it's eventual resurrection with Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance and the game-changing "reboot" that was Mortal Kombat "9", It's too important to ignore in the grand scheme of fighting games. This series has endured longer than it should have, adjusted with the times and has gained respectability in the semi-overrated tournament scene. With the upcoming release of Mortal Kombat X, the tradition of exceptional story, great visuals and increased brutality should carry-on nicely. I can't wait.
What about Batman?
Speaking of video games, Batman: Arkham Knight is also set to be released later this year as well. I tend to like most things Batman, so I'm sure I'll like this (or want to like it) by default. The visuals are what initially sold me. I'm hoping it's more like Batman: Arkham Asylum in terms of story/pacing but with the open-world promise of Batman: Arkham City.
49ers will be mediocre for a while
Oh how I miss Jim Harbaugh right now. I already ranted about the firing of Jim Harbaugh. I really have no faith in Jim Tomsula, considering the coaching talent that currently exist in the NFL. He may have a good 2015/2016 campaign but I highly doubt it. The 49ers went from being the class of the NFC to barely making 3rd place within the NFC West this past season. As I am always pessimistic, this time around I really believe the mediocrity will reach Washington Redskins level for the next few seasons. Go 49ers? (No links in this article, sorry.)
Lastly, I feel compelled to comment on a story that occurred last week. Giuliana Rancic, a person I have no real interest in or would normally care about, made a comment about some other entertainer named Zendaya Coleman (never heard of her, BTW) and her dreads. She basically made a joke about Zendaya's dread locks smelling like weed. This caused Twitter outrage/general Internet anger, calling Rancic a racist, etc.
I don't see the big deal here. The comment came while Rancic was on E! Fashion Police show where these sort of comments are common-place. After all, comedian Joan Rivers used to host the show before passing away last year. And guess what good comedy does..IT PUSHES THE ENVELOPE AND GOES FOR IT! Seriously, this the LEAST offensive thing that is on this show. There is a segment where they show censored pictures and guess whether the person in the photo is a "Starlet" or "Street Walker"! However the race card was pulled here and I'm sure that helped to bring out the outrage machine that is the Internet. There was NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING, racially insensitive about this comment. I'm willing to dispute this with anyone. If anything, it "insults" potheads, though they didn't seem to be too upset with the joke.
While it might be wrong to assume someone with dreads smokes weed, it's not that much of a stretch. To analyze this further, trying to identify races, history of hairstyles and the like seems like a waste of time. After all, the comment made by Guiliana was a joke! She made the comment on a show where all they do is rag on celebrities...that's 50% of the show! The outrage has somewhat died down after Giuliana Rancic offered an apology (which is also being scrutinized for whatever reason). So yes, the Brown Guy is a week or so late. Whatever, it irked me enough where I felt the need to blog about it.
This is also one of the few times in my life and on this blog that I will defend Guiliana Rancic.
