QOTD 124: You Are the Game…I really really want to play you.

Lets talk about video games! As you all certainly know in addition to cultivating this C+ player of a daily feature, I write about video games in my spare time – though oddly, otters, the QOTD hasn’t really featured them all that much.

Thus:

Whatcyha been playing, interactive media wise, lately? 

What’s your favorite game of all time? 

Least favorite that everyone else seems to love?

What game have you played the most, for the longest period of time? (it’s WoW isn’t it! You know its WoW!

For starters: 23 vintage games you can play in your browser

QOTD 6: Meester Son of a beeech, lets play some Carhhhddsss

Okay Otters, it’s been suggested that we dedicate a QOTD to organizing a Poker Tourney. Thus:

Do you want to organize a Poker Tourney? 


Shoot me an e-mail at [email protected] Several of you reached out to me already, but I had some email wonkiness and now all the emails at the Ebert Presents address are gone. So if you email before, please e-mail again and accept my apologies. If you haven’t e-mailed before, but want to e-mail again, go for it. If didn’t want to e-mail before, and still don’t want to e-mail now, I appreciate your conviction.

Timetable wise I’m thinking mayyyybeeeeeee after Night of Champions? We could call it the “Poker Night of Champions” and wear lucha masks. I dunno, it’s late folks. Anyway, post how you’d like it to go down, and upvote the ideas you like most.

That one question you have…you know the one, should be directed to my email.

1. I just realized the question above is sort of lame, so this thread can also be open to poker related stories, victories, bad beats, suck outs. Also feel free to talk about Rounders, I wasn’t so hot on it once I saw it absent ‘pokermania’.

2. For people who hate poker, but love neat tricks: here’s something cool – I just learned a quick cure for the hiccups (this won’t work on you). If someone has the hiccups, casually ask them their middle name. The “Huh?” followed by the time they spend waiting for you to respond, will fix their hiccups like 90 percent of the time. It’s all in delivery.

Its time to play the game…

Scott, I know we've beaten this into the ground but I think I've recently changed my opinion on the HHH/Bryan angle and wanted your opinion.
Im on record as liking the angle as a whole so far, and was trying to be objective about HHHs involvement, and not let his past transgressions impair my judgment of his current role.  However, wouldnt it be a much better angle if it were just the hottest babyface in the business (D Bry of course) vs. a well established superstar fresh off a delayed heel turn (Orton obviously.)  Forget all the "is the face taking to much of a beating every week", "does it make the rest of the roster look weak", etc. talk. Wouldnt just a straight up Bryan vs Orto

n

feud work better in your opinion?  

No, because the whole reason Orton is such an effective heel is that HHH is making him one.  If it was just Orton v. Bryan then Orton would get turned babyface by the crowds and negate the whole point.  

Let’s play ‘Name That Finisher’

Hey Caliber,

         Your friendly fellow fitness buff here. I
am proposing that in honor of the guy that trained him we start a
movement to name Daniel Bryan’s new running knee finisher “Sweet Beard
Music” What do you think? I bet everyone on the blog can unite, (for a
change) to make this  happen.

(YankeesHoganTripleHFan)

You know, it’s not bad. But I have to admit I’m partial to Goat Knees Pizza. Especially since he’s going up against Orton, and they can call it the GKP. And you know, you call it the Pizza because you eat that shit.

So, how about it, gang? Anyone have a better idea? It’ll be one of the BoD’s many highlights amongst it’s legacy.

Sabertooth to play Benoit

I’m sure most of you have read by now, but for those that haven’t, Liev Schrieber is signed on to play Benoit in the new film Crossface.

Should be interesting. However, what I’m looking forward to the most is the actors they choose to portray people like Vince, Triple H, and Eddie. I can only imagine that the real Triple H will pitch an idea like a new age No Holds Barred where he finally, FINALLY gets his dream match: Triple H vs Triple H. Hey-O!

More Stupid Shit To Play With

Oh, Google, always coming up with fun stuff even while killing things like Reader for no real reason.

Anyway, in the “things you can play around with if you want” category, you can actually render a Blogger site in any of seven different wacky “dynamic views” without having to alter the source code, which is handy for anyone wanting to preview different looks for their site without messing things up.  Now, I dislike all of these, but just for fun you can see what the BOD would look like in all these radically redesigned ways:

http://www.rspwfaq.net/view/timeslide

Some of them are obviously super-specialized (like “snapshot” for photo blogs) but it’s nice to see what things would like with with a change of pace.

Fwd: RSPWFAQ App on Google Play


Hi Scott,

I just published the RSPWFAQ app on Google Play.  This is my first app
published on Google Play so you should feel honored. 🙂

Obviously, it's free for Android users.  Your links to Amazon and such
should still function as they would. It will take a few days for it to
be approved.  I'll shoot you another email once it becomes available.

Thanks and keep up the great work,
Mark

I'm totally honored!  Awesome work!

Hey Scott,
Just wondered what you and the blogees make of JR’s recent outburst about the state of commentary on Raw. Is it right that the company should now make explicit their focus on storylines rather than the story of the match?

If they need their announcers to explain their storylines, they’re doing a shitty job of creating storylines.  And even so, with the Punk-HHH feud, they needed HHH to go out there and basically tell people why they were fighting because it was such a nonsensical mess.  And of course you have the Swagger-Ziggler “storyline”, where we’re never really clear on whether they’re teaming or hate each other.  Basically it’s just another buzzword for them to tell the investors and justify their ridiculous decisions. Edit to also add:  I think the best summation is Peter Griffin pitching the show “Handi-Quacks” to the FOX animation department, where he goes off on a ridiculous run about the storylines and twists and turns and making the audience feel something, and it’s of course a badly drawn cartoon about retarded ducks.  That’s really what it feels like listening to them at this point.
