so yeah…we’re back

How was your winter everyone?  Yeah, we kinda took it off.  No excuses, but we spent the early part of the year reading up about this Mayan doomsday prophecy (which we found to be bullshit so you’re welcome), then The Walking Dead came back and we were going to write about that until Lori sucked away our collective will to live.  Finally we were most assuredly going to make our glorious return but Mass Effect 3 came out and we were in the middle of the Road to WrestleMania and whatnot so yeah…

Anyway, long story short we’re back, and hopefully that means you’ll come back and read us as we write about God knows what in the world of popular culture.  Hell, since we’re so hyped to be back we may even write something good every once in awhile.  No promises though…

YAY WE’RE BACK EVERYONE!!!!

Oh and for the record our podcast, “If It Bleeds, We Can Kill It,” did NOT take a vacation and is still as awesome as ever, well at least if you consider two guys arguing about why Michael Bay is the worst human being ever awesome.  You can check that out here… SUBSCRIBE AND ENJOY LIFE MORE!

EPISODE 21

On this episode, Byrd and Trev give their thoughts on the Walking Dead and American Horror Story so far and concept art for the abandoned Crow reboot, Trev reviews the recent sci-fi film In Time, and the two review the recent Edgar Wright produced creature feature Attack the Block.  After that its all downhill as the podcast goes totally off the rails as the two discuss the nature of fan films as Byrd tries, and ultimately fails to describe why they annoy him, in a debate that pretty much goes nowhere.  This is what happens when a podcast self destructs.  We’re not perfect!

Jon Lester takes a piss at gamers

Wicked Pissah

Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester was recently quoted on ESPN.com as saying: “People are making us out to be a bunch of drunk, fried-chicken eating SOBs, playing video games. You can ask my wife, for the last 10 years I don’t think I’ve played a single video game, and Josh (Beckett) and Lack (John Lackey) are the same way.”

That’s quite a cognitive leap there. He’s essentially saying ‘Hey, I’m may be an irresponsible degenerate who drinks on the job, but at least I’m not a gamer.’

Remember folks, the Red Sox were the last team to integrate, and people from Boston think Flogging Molly is music. I suppose none of this should be particularly shocking.
