Destiny Weekly: It’s Time To Make It Rain Purple In Destiny

January 28, 2016 // 0 Comments

Destiny is in a really rough place right now, and there’s just no denying it. And I say that as it relates to the hardcore players. The Christmas kinderguardians I’m sure are having a blast because they’re still only one month into the game. It’s still fresh to them. But for us day one players with a thousand plus hours invested, Destiny is drying up fast. I went from playing every day to rarely playing over the past month. And here’s the thing, it is okay to move on and play another game. Of course it is. But for a lot of us, Destiny is just a fun game and we [...]

Classic Music Spotlight: Al Dexter – “Pistol Packin’ Mama”

January 27, 2016 // 0 Comments

This week, the spotlight shines on the 1943-1944 classic Al Dexter hit, “Pistol Packin’ Mama.” Smith’s Sentiment: Al Dexter wrote and performed this song that topped the charts during 1944, although it’s the cover by Bing Crosby and The Andrews Sisters that is more well known today. The latter version appears in the hit game, Fallout 4. So thank you Bethesda for exposing a lot of younger folks to a timeless classic. Lyrics: Drinkin’ beer in a cabaret And I was havin’ fun! Until one night she caught me right, And now I’m on the run Lay that [...]

January 27, 2016 // 0 Comments

This week, the Classic Wrestling Match of the Week takes us back to April 27, 1987 and one of the great infamous wrestling angles and moments. The AWA Southern Heavyweight Championship was on the line in Memphis, TN, but that wasn’t the only thing up for grabs in this Steel Cage match. It’s Jerry Lawler defending his title against his former friend and partner Austin Idol, and it’s also a hair vs hair match. Smith’s Sentiment: This, ladies and gentlemen, is sports-entertainment wrestling done right. The match itself was certainly not a techincal masterpiece; it was a [...]

It’s a wonderful drama and arguably Audrey’s finest performance. Instead of yammering on about it though, I’ll [...]

Diablo Glog #1: The Demon Hunter Chronicles

January 14, 2016 // 0 Comments

For Christmas I got a copy of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls for PS4. It was one of several games acquired, so it was pushed aside for a little bit mainly while I played through Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Prior to starting it up, I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. I had heard good things, mainly from our own Monkey, and so I knew I wanted to try it. This is my first Diablo experience, I didn’t play any of the previous games in the series. I’ve been playing it for a week now, and I’ve gotta admit that I am fairly well hooked. I started at just the right time too, [...]
