Chuck Wendig: Know "wen" to hold em

Let’s call this trend of professional people getting fired over Twitter... 

Yet, another hard-working writer gets himself in trouble over petty bullshit on Twitter.  Again, I hope Marvel gave him a warning about tweeting shit and then fired him if he ignored them.  Instead of doing the job he loves, he spends a great deal of time fighting trolls and detractors on Twitter.   

It appears Marvel fired him for being nasty on Twitter.  I think it had more to do with him constantly talking about his penis than confronting trolls.  

You are a professional writer with one of the best gigs on the planet.  How do you f’ that up?  You act like an ass on Twitter.  Look, I hate Trump as much as the next guy, but spazzing out over him to the point of losing your job is a bit too much.   Sometimes "putting food on your family" is more important than SJW-ing on twitter.  

Remember, people should know you for your body of work and not your shit posts with Internet trolls.  Save the shit-posting for assholes like me.   Again, I hate that someone loses their job over bullshit like Twitter.  Anyway, he can invent another sandwich.  I am not making this up.  

Does he need to do those stupid Soyboy selfie grins?  This is a trend I am really getting tired of seeing.

Netflix Cancels Luke Cage

Netflix Cancels Luke Cage
From CBS, (("Unfortunately, Marvel's Luke Cage will not return for a third season," said a statement released by Netflix. "Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem's Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series." ))
Well, this sucks. I think Luke Cage finally found its balance and rhythm with season two. And, I feel the show was going to go in an interesting direction with season 3. However, the “cliffhanger” leaves the story unresolved.
If they were going to end it, why not let them have another season to conclude the story? Something about this cancellation seems wrong. I can see them getting rid of Iron Fist, but not Luke Cage. Will Disney pick these two shows up for streaming on their service?

Anyway, I loved the second season and the world of Cage. I hope there is a deal to be reached and they can finish off with a shortened season 3. I'd be down for that.

Remember the Red Shirt Guy?

Remember the Red Shirt Guy?
This was back in the day when you didn't need to pick sides in the culture wars and make fun of these dudes. I liked the Red Shirt Guy and his instant meme. Remember when memes were not weapons and just jokes? From the Wow Wiki, the original video happened in 2010 and I posted about this back in 2010. I am too lazy to look up my old post from eight years ago. Damn, eight years. 
He's like an upgraded Star Wars Kid.  
I wonder how the gaming press and the gaming public would view him today? Would they attack him for his nerd knowledge? Given the changes in fandom, it would be an interesting thing to view if he blew up today. Given the contempt content creators have for their fans or criticism, I wonder if their response would be different.
Anyway, I looked him up and it looks like Red Shirt Guy is doing extremely well for himself. Actually, he is doing far better than I. He works a writer for BlizzPlanet. He's doing what he loves and doesn't let his social issues hold him back...unlike say a Chris Chan.
Well done, Red Shirt Guy.

Key Fob Kelly


A woman blocks black man from entering his own apartment building. 

From ABC News, ((A white woman in St. Louis dubbed "Key Fob Kelly" by social media users is defending her actions in a new interview after videos of her trying to block a black man from entering his own apartment building went viral.)) 

It almost feels like the beginning of a horror movie or an intro to an interracial porn video.  AKA Blacked.   If this was a Blacked shoot, it would have ended with her entering his apartment and dropping her racist ways after sex.  I’m just saying.   

I love that she gets pissed when he walks right by her.  I also love the awkward ride in the turbolift.  I think she got fired from her job of watching the door.  I think she should have gotten a stern warning and talked to before firing her.  If she ended up doing it again, then fire her.   

She is clearly harassing this man and it gets worse when she follows him up to his apartment.  The dude did everything smoothly and to the point.  He gets major kudos for his behavior.  He didn't act a fool and just gave her straight answers.

Corner Store Caroline: Live Meme

Corner Store Caroline:  Live Meme 



Being a black man growing up, I have been accused of many things and followed along stores.  I have had white women follow me around thinking I was breaking into cars.  Thanks to the Internet, we finally get to see this trend of “concerned” white women calling the cops of non-threatening black people, especially black men.   

Corner Store Caroline is the latest one.  And, it is amusing to watch it unfold.  The little kid never grabbed her ass or lack of one, and it was just his backpack.  When you get a good look at her, NO ONE, man or woman, would want to touch her.  She looks like a melted Howard Stern if you left him in your car too long.  

As you know, I like crazy/unstable white chicks, but I draw the line on this Gollum.  






Shannon Elizabeth’s first role?

Shannon Elizabeth’s first role?   


For some stupid reason, I am rewatching Arliss on HBO On Demand.  I hate sports, but I dig watching a product that is clearly a product of the 90s.  An episode came up clearly parodying Anna Kournikova.  She is from an eastern country and plays tennis badly, but is very attractive.   

The woman playing the part looked familiar and then it dawned on me.  It was Shannon Elizabeth.  I had a huge crush on Shannon back in the day.  So, she plays a hot young lady with a thick eastern accent that really likes to have sex in the episode.  Does that sound like another role she played?  Yep, with the same fake accent, she plays a similar role in the American Pie movies. 
  
Anyway, this Arliss episode is listed as her first appearance. I thought the Jack Frost horror movie was her first role.  
  
Side Note:  Not Another Teen Movie made a running joke about her with a character walking around completely naked.

Roseanne Barr on Rogan: Yep, she is crazy

Roseanne Barr on Rogan:  Yep, she is crazy 


I listened to the Joe Rogan Podcast with Roseanne.  She is clearly unstable and she sounds like that grandmother that has lost a few brain points over the years.  I felt for her when she talked about the head trauma when she was a child.  The problem is that the podcast gets really cringy toward the last half of the interview and even Rogan gets flustered with her nonsense.  She is feeding into the strange far right Alex Jones bullshit and is using their buzz words.   

She wasn’t going to talk about her co-stars and then proceeded to talk about her co-stars abandoning her.  Anyway, check out the cringy interview.  I have to give Joe credit for trying to keep his cool.  He tried to be fair and focus on the mental issues she has, but she kept trying to push it toward the Iran thing.  I do like that he lost it toward the end when she went off into the deep end.  


Like other people, I now believe she shouldn't have been fired, but forced to NOT tweet.  ABC and other companies need to make guidelines for content creators to stop making asses of themselves.  

SVU, you need to stop. Really

Remember when L&O was in its prime?  They had THREE shows on the same network at the same time.  Now, the last show is just, "Oh, is that show still on?".  
Well, how about that? I just made a post about INCELs and then I discover our (too long in the tooth) Law and Order SVU show made a damn INCEL episode. It almost makes me want to go to NBC OnDemand and watch it and laugh. I hope it is just as stupid as the GG episode.  Then, I realize I would have to sit through an entire episode of SVU.  I have better things to do like writing stupid blogs about them instead.  
I have my own issues with INCELs, but having a bunch of less attractive beta men as the true villains on the show is a joke. It reminds me when the “gamers” somehow outsmarted a bunch of trained police offices in that GG episode. I'd make fun of the episode if they made it about blue-haired feminists committing a crime. You're scraping the bottom, folks. I know my mother will be sad, but it is time to end the show.
When SVU first aired, I actually liked the show. I love that they brought over one of the main characters from Homicide, another NBC show, and had a dark tone to the stories. Homicide and SVU shared a universe together. (Actually, The Wire, L&O, and Homicide are in the same universe.)
Hey, SVU, do you know how to defeat an INCEL?
Sorry, I have a boyfriend.”
I don't see you in that way. I value our friendship.”
Give them a fake number.  
Side Note:  I would love to see a spinoff where actual SUVs solve crimes.  We can call it SVU: SUV

Funny INCEL

Remember, he ain't shit.
Well, you know how I like to talk and write about our boy Kent. He's like the PS4 to Kent's PS1. Well, this dude is even funnier. He has me laughing at every word. I am a guy with low self-esteem but this guy is even lower on the level of self-esteem. He should start his own stand-up show and make people laugh.
I really can't seem to get a handle o these INCELs and their hatred of women and themselves. When I was younger, I probably felt the same way. Things generally got better when I stopped dating and asking women out. If you have a problem with world of dating, why not take yourself out of the game?

Jordan Hunt: The Meme Kicker

Jordan Hunt: The Meme Kicker

While he is spending time jail, Jordan “the kicker of ideas” Hunt can look up his meme fame. I still think kicking someone is a new form greeting someone in the millennial sphere. While some have bestowed Cuck Norris, I prefer to call him the meme kicker.  
Let him be a DLC character in Tekken.
