The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Christmas Eve has dawned and the sun has set, your boy is another year older. More gray hairs in the beard and a few other places, there MIGHT be a stray one on my head but for the most part the mane is still dark brown, I'm sure they are coming but I have a few years left. Of course I hit the routine which will be discussed after the jump, and I came back to have Cheese Steaks, Cake, and ice cream (mint chocolate chip if ya please), if was a mildly chilly day started out gloomy and in the 40's dropped to the mid 30's later on. Another year another non white Christmas. Granted it isn't like I am a HUGE SNOW FAN, I'll play in it if it's available but I don't like the cold(But your born in December, what does that have to do with LIKING cold weather hmmmm). Anyway enough stalling

I'm gone need my Eagles to be a little stronger down the stretch

4 weeks in the books, my Eagles are 3-1. one tough loss, one strong victory and two "it doesn't matter if it's ugly as long as you win" games. Now to be fair this weeks win was wire to wire. We got up by 13 on the Charges and never looked back, they got close, acted like they wanted to take the lead, but never got over the hump. Which wouldn't be so bad if we weren't coasting into the fourth quarter before the floor drops out. Now I don't know if it's due to injuries on our defense(because we have lost a few players, especially in the secondary), I don't know if they are just wearing down as the game rolls on. But this is the second week in a row that we have given up double digit points in the fourth quarter.

Now I am not just going to complain, I know that versus the Chiefs and the Giants I complained about how much we ran the ball, even though last week we had 193 yards rushing which was more than we had passing. WELL this week Doug Pederson decided that you know what, the RUSH kind of worked last week. Maybe I should try it again, and he did to the tune of 214 yards on the ground. And what do you know the LEADING RUSHER wasn't Carson Wentz, it was the Bruising "Short Yardage Back" you picked up during the off season. Yup Legarette Blount had 136 yards, no TD(because of ONE HELL OF A TACKLE), and a few yards receiving. Some might said his yards are artificially inflated because of a 68 yard run, but ahem if you ain want him to chew up the field ya should have tackled him.

It's Baaaaaaaack

Football season is OFFICIALLY here. Yes I said officially a full 5 days after the Patriots got curb stomped by the Chiefs on Thursday night football. First off:

  • I don't care about the Patriots
  • That the Patriots PERFECT SEASON is already over is hilarious
  • That the BILLS(and the Lions) have a better record than the Patriots is priceless
  • If my team ain playing it ain real yet
  • Having the same record as the Cowboys is more of an issue to me
Look, I don't count preseason as real football because HALF of those guys(or damn near) won't even be on the team first game. Jordan Matthews, gone(which was a surprise), Jon Dorenbos GONE(but hopefully recovering from his heart surgery. He's a good dude and a Philly Favorite). Until it's kick off time first game, you see the flyover and the GIANT American flags all over your TV football ain here yet. The games mean nothing, you went Undefeated in preseason: "haha aiight, now what ain no preseason Superbowl everybody was 0-0 last night."  Plus the first game is always crazy, I mean it is nice to see former Eagles have good luck in their new homes(as long as it ain against us) Two Eagles are reunited(though I don't know if Jordan and Shady played together at all). Jeremy Maclin looked like a beast for Baltimore, and Djax will be fine WHENEVER Tampa and the rest of the Florida teams can get back on the field. Real Life is more important than football. I hope everyone in Florida is safe I know Irma has wobbled back and forth power is out for millions of people football will be here.

Did you ever wish you were IN Mad max, just not out of the car

No, I am not playing. I've been playing a lot of Crossout lately, now granted part of it is because they have an ingenious "sales pitch" if you will. Stay on for 2 hours get a free crate of loot. But I am getting ahead of myself. Crossout is a game set in a post apocalyptic future where you gather together spare parts to build a death mobile, face of against OTHER human players death mobiles OR random puny but annoying AI death mobiles. Yes a lot of mobile killing machines. It is part driving game(arcade style mind you, but you do drive around). If you follow me on twitter you even saw one of my revamped monsters kill two unfortunate players who didn't realize I was not the one(at least not that time in a one v one situation).

Now there are many different facets to Crossout, it doesn't really have a story mode per se. It is all online play you are either in up to 8 on 8 matches, involved in up to 4 player co op to face the AI, there is a "free for all" mode, and Clan battles. There are groups of various NPC groups that you can choose to be a part of, which will grant you spare parts, the ability to craft various parts and weapons(each sect has it's own specialization and thus part access that they grant you) of various rarities, there is an area to "showcase your builds" which can allow other players to like or test drive your latest mad mechanic creation, and a market place to trade your rare or higher valuation parts.

The Mighty 500

This post is 8 years in the making. It has taken me 4 moves, a separation, a divorce, and 4 gaming consoles to get here. It has seen me play hours of games, watch days worth of movies and TV, buy a TV or two, damn near lose an Eye, break a tooth, and get contacts a few times. I have joined, left, and forgotten who knows how many social media sites in the last 8 years, to which INITIALLY I was going to make this post about that journey.

But then, This blog was here for that journey. I mean you can go back and see all the Essays, bad poems, reviews, opinions, rants, anecdotes, ups and downs. I was about to spend a lot of time basically repeating myself when I could just thank everyone who has come by FOR coming by. I will admit it has not always been easy to right, and no it has nothing to do with the state of my relationship. I enjoy interaction so at times when no one responds my mind wanders elsewhere, not because I have nothing to say but because while I don't mind being somebody who is on their own side in a conversation I prefer it to be a conversation not speech prep if you know what I mean.

Whoa, look what snuck up on me

For those reading (if any of you are left) this is my 499th post on THIS blog. I remember when I did my hundredth on wordpress and of course I did something silly(but it was worth it) because it allowed me to get it out of the way without too much fanfare but 500 is different, 500 is special it has taken me YEARS to get here. Mainly because I keep taking long hiatuses. Which I will try not to do to commemorate this occasion. I mean 500 should somehow someway reflect my "Journey as a Blogger " right, I mean anybody who has written off and on long enough to accumulate 500 posts in one place HAS to be different now then he was before right? I would hope so. I doubt it will get done tomorrow though, because I have a long trip ahead of me and my mind isn't going to be in it. So when I get back we will start planning the 500th post. It's hilarious it was almost a movie review(that I still owe) which would have been awkward because then I couldn't have done this warning post if I would have  noticed it. Lucky I guess that I looked at my posts today.

As we all know, blogging is a rhythm thing for me. I get in a mindset, my fingers hit the keys and out pops who knows what. Hilarity, insanity, mundanity, and yes I just started rhyming out of nowhere but I was running with it like a Vogon with a form that needs stamping. It's crazy I usually make a big deal about views(which I haven't paid attention to lately. Mainly cause I miss all the awesome numbers. 50,000 is coming up soon, I think), I would make a big deal about comments but there would have to be some. Maybe because I don't really say anything TOO controversial over here, I think, folks either just say "you crazy primal" and move on or maybe I didn't leave too much room on the subject for commentary except for those few random posts. And commenters I appreciate all of you.

Movie Trailers for: The Dark Tower

It has been a rather good Summer Movie season so far, I have been to the movies at least once a month this summer which is why it is kind of sad I haven't done a single movie review this whole time. I am trying to get my life together I swear but at least while it is a few days late I am getting the Movie trailers post out for a RECENT movie for once(woohoo), I may go ahead and do spoilerrific reviews for the older movies(if I can get around to them) while taking more time with Dark Tower. I hear it was the number one movie over what was the SLOWEST weekend of the summer, probably stings. I mean, it is a Stephen King movie, but if you didn't choose to read the books it may not have the name recognition as some of the others.

Enough about the movie itself though, that (hopefully comes later) this is about the trailers of which there were 5, hmmm I actually think I left one of these off of Spidey's because I wasn't as shocked at seeing one of these trailers oh well, I will fix it this time. Without further ado

The trailers for Dark Tower
