Yesterday was my 30th birthday. I enjoy my birthday, but after 23, they all feel the same. I guess that’s a good thing, because while I know that I’m getting older, I don’t feel old.
Today is (or was with today being almost over on the east coast) the 12th anniversary of my first blog post. In those 12 years, I’ve written on a number of different platforms (Geocities, Blogger, TypePad, WordPress, tumblr), interacted with a lot of different people online, and shared a lot of different viewpoints. If there’s one thing I can say each year at this time is that nothing ever feels the same. The Internet is a crazy, ever-changing place.
Thank you all, friends old and new, for another fun year. Here’s to more down the road.
The boyhood dream has come true, for Shawn Michaels
I could not give two shits about WWE but the exultant joy on that man’s face is palpable. I don’t know who he is but you know he grew up with this shit, probably wrestling with brothers on the couch. After paying his dues for years he’s done it, here he is with the Wrestlemania belt.
Piledrive your dreams friends, piledrive your dreams.
For a non fan, you did a pretty good job of summing up Shawn Michaels’ biggest moment. Moments like this don’t happen often as many of the wrestlers tend to stay in character, keeping kayfabe alive, even after finally achieving their lifelong goal. Shawn won his first WWF Championship in 1996. The next time a moment this personal happened? In my opinion, robably when The Miz won his first title in 2010.
Way to go Sergio. Everyone was having a great time. Life was good, you were in a major feud with the top heel in the golf world, and you were playing well. Then you had to go off and be “that guy.” Way to fuck yourself. Jerk.
Michael Jordan wants to ”bring the buzz back” to Charlotte.
The Bobcats owner said at a press conference Tuesday evening he’s changing his team’s name to the Charlotte Hornets beginning in 2014-15.
Jordan said he submitted an application to the NBA board of governors earlier Tuesday informing them of his decision and is optimistic the board will approve the name change when they convene in July.
”Let’s bring the buzz back, and bring that energy back on the basketball court and make this city proud again,” Jordan said.
Charlotte will remain the Bobcats next season, but if all goes as planned Jordan anticipates his team will become the Hornets the following season.
Finally. No one liked the Bobcats. The name, the colors…they just weren’t ours. Looking forward to the 2014-15 season. Sure, it’ll just be the same awful Bobcats in better colors, but those colors make everything instantly better.
This is all I want from tomorrow’s Xbox event. Is it likely to happen? Probably not, as a price drop on the 360 will be best saved for E3. Still, having been a Wii-only gamer last generation, I would like to go back and play some of the games I missed, but I refuse to pay $300 to do so. Ideally, I would love for the PlayStation 3 to reach the $99 (or the more likely, $149) price point first as Sony has better exclusives, but hey, beggars can’t be choosy.
Even with my biggest desire being nothing more than a pipe dream, I’ll still be tuning in. It’s always interesting to see what the competition is cooking up.
Yo KT, looks like your #pleaseandthankyoumovement is desperately needed in IN. (Notice how polite CT is…)
look at georgia! we’re real cute with our manners n shit!
LOL this reminds me. This week I tried to explain to a CA native friend of mine that a GA native friend of mine is so glad to be leaving so cal. She graduated school and was out like a shot in 2 days. She didn’t mind socal weather but she HATED day to day life with socal people.
A lot of southern folks are so damned polite that they forget it is their culture to be polite and when they leave, they think everyone else is rude as fuck. As a GA native, I see where they are coming from. I am just glad I remember that it isn’t that people are being rude (well, sometimes they are…) but usually it is just a cultural difference.
Southerns represent them manners.
Yay, Maryland!! We’re top 3 in cursing AND courtesy.
I was thinking the same thing about Louisiana, Ed.
Good to see South Carolina in the #1 spot for something positive. Woo hoo!
While I’m not doing much today, today is a big day for some of my students. (Yes, we have our graduation on a Monday. It’s weird, I know. Apparently it’s a tradition, but I haven’t been able to find anyone who knows when, where, or why it started. Anyways…) In the past hour, I’ve had three of them drop by to thank me for helping them out when the odds were not in their favor. It’s great to see everything work out in the end as there was a lot of money riding on them graduating through either retracted job offers or another semester of school and no one wanted either of those scenarios to play out. Here’s to them figuring out the real world with a little less difficulty.
