Lazy Saturdays

And what a lazy, lazy Saturday it is.

The hour is 2:29 p.m. CST. I’m alone in my apartment with all the blinds drawn. The place is an absolute wreck, truth be told – covered in boxes, bottles, cans, plates… ah… you name it.

I’m at my computer typing this. To accompany this scene, I have the soundtrack to Brick playing. It fits oddly well.

And that’s been my life for the last four weeks or so!


Something has to give, eventually. Right? Right. Enough of that. I suppose as long as I’m here, we might as well talk about something interesting.

Wii Fit Turns Woman into Sex Addict – okay, I’m pretty sure that this isn’t for real. Regardless, it’s a story on Yahoo! News. And… it’s been there for a few days. Apparently, after falling off her Wii Fit board and damaging a nerve, Amanda Flowers is now a victim of persistent sexual arousal syndrome. And yes, that’s a real thing. So, why don’t I think this is for real? Try the closing quote from Flowers: “With no cure I just have to try to control my passion by breathing deeply. Hopefully one day I’ll find a superstud who can satisfy me.”

Who says something like that? Nobody, that’s who. Nobody.

Apple Blocks Political Cartoonist from App Store, Quickly Regrets Decision – y’know, for quite some time now, it’s been my plan to ditch Verizon and purchase an iPhone this coming November when my contract is up. But stories like this one are what make me consider alternative (read: Droid OS) options.

Mark Fiore is an accomplished political cartoonist. In fact, he made a little history recently by becoming the first web-exclusive journalist to win a Pulitzer Prize for his work. However, because his cartoons “ridicule public figures,” Apple refused to feature his work on the App store. So, essentially, Apple has begun making judgments on editorial content.

Obviously, this enraged more than a few, so Apple quickly backpedaled and asked Fiore to resubmit his app. Good for them, but that Google Nexus One phone is looking sweeter all the time…

Four Year-Old Kid Gets Free Weed with Game

Ba-hahahaha. Ahem. Ah, anyway. Some dad in the UK bought is kid Fight Night Round 3 for Xbox 360. The kid opened up the box to find tobacco laced with weed. He showed it to his father, who, reportedly became “horrified” and “took it off him straight away.” (The bag, I’m assuming.)

“But what if he’d thought it was sweets, and started munching away?” The dad said. “It doesn’t bear thinking about.”

No, actually, it doesn’t; because I’m pretty sure the worst thing that would have happened to the kid would be a nasty aftertaste.

When I think about the number of gamers who likely would have been thrilled to receive such a perk, the fact that it ended up in the hands of a four year-old becomes even funnier.

And that’s all. Enjoy the rest of your Saturday.
