Daily News Update – May 25, 2020

I guess it’s Memorial Day in the US, so enjoy your day off if that applies to you.

(Two AEW newsbites from Tommy?  He’s seen the light!)

 

Hey yo, here’s something that happened on another Memorial Day show years ago…

Daily News Update – May 24, 2020

Well that was a show!

Remember, if you want to order the replay (and you should) on Fite.TV, you can do so here and a few bucks go my way:

TONIGHT!  It’s AEW Double or Nothing, which you can order via Fite.TV if you’re not in the US, right here:

DATELINE:  Animal Crossing has made ALL OF THE MONEY.

Hopefully Nintendo invested it all in turnips when they were selling at 65 Bells and then sold at 300.

DATELINE:  “Snyder Cut” of Justice League to debut on HBO Max in 2021

https://news.avclub.com/holy-crap-hbo-max-is-actually-going-to-release-the-sn-1843569734

Is there some alternate version of Snyder who actually makes good movies?  Why do people think this is going to be any less of a dumpster fire than what we got crapped on us in theaters?  Also, HBO Max is not coming to Canada, so I won’t get to see it anyway.

 

 

Daily News Update – May 22, 2020

TGIF!  No, never mind, I’m working all weekend.

Gotta say, not much of a buzz for Double or Nothing tomorrow.  This one might not do so well.

Gosh Google is so helpful.  “Hey, we couldn’t help but notice that your revenue dropped dramatically in April, just like everyone else in the world!  Remember we’re here to help and support you through these tough times, mostly with e-mails a month after the fact pointing out that your revenue is in the toilet and then a bunch of ads for Russian dating sites.  Thanks for being a publisher!”

Daily News Update – May 15, 2020

TGIF.  I’m pretty happy with my Amazon Fire 10 HD, as the screen is the perfect size and ratio for comic reading.  Still disappointed that Comixology Unlimited remains exclusive to the US, though.  And DC Universe.  Must be because of those SJWs that Jesse Baker keeps going on about.

Daily News Update – May 10, 2020

Happy Mother’s Day!  And also, Happy MITB day!  I literally have paid zero attention to anything on RAW or Smackdown and I couldn’t tell you any of the matches or participants on the show tonight if you held a gun to my head, but I’m no different than a large percentage of the fanbase that way right now.  So this should be an interesting rant tonight if nothing else.

There we go, posted super early so I can sleep in on my day off and not have people bitch that there’s no daily thread until 9am.

Anyone have experience with the Amazon Fire tablets?  My iPad Mini 3 has been somehow annexed into my daughter’s room on a permanent basis and I’m basically looking for something to read books and comics with on the road.  Seems like a good fit and the 7″ version is only $65 Canadian.
