Why I Want to Date Taylor Swift

November 3, 2010

Now, I know what you’re thinking right off the bat, “Gordon, Taylor is twenty, you’re forty seven, that’s totally gross.” I agree. That’s why this relationship would be 100% platonic. My motivations in this union are totally non-physical.

They’re way worse than that…

Is Best Buy Ripping Us Off?

October 24, 2010

Buckle your seatbelts, folks. Time to blow the lid off of what must be a far-reaching conspiracy.

Earlier today, I swung by my local Best Buy to buy my mother’s birthday gift. (A DVD/VCR combo…yes, she still uses VHS tapes.) I also purchased myself the WWE’s new “Wrestling’s Highest Flyers” DVD. (Yes, I still watch wrestling.)

When I got home and unpacked these goodies, I noted that not only was the receipt’s printing barely legible, but it was also horribly smudged. Is this some kind of ploy from the Best Buy people to prevent returns? Shady…

Has anyone else noticed this?

UPDATE: It’s been suggested by a few people that it could be a crappy printer. That’s possible (read: probable) but isn’t nearly as much fun.

Things That Should Exist

October 23, 2010

I’m OK with my hands. I did the tiling and some of the plumbing work in my bathroom, I meticulously painted my front porch, and I used to be quite good with a first baseman’s glove. But now that I’ve chosen writing as my profession, I’ve become more of an idea man. I prefer to let my creative juices flow and allow the movers and shakers of the world to use my thoughts as their inspiration.

Here are few freebies… (more…)

Clarification Needed…

I’m going to apologize in advance in case what I’m about to ask ruins anyone’s day, but…

Reality star Khloe Kardashian and former WWE wrestler Chyna are the same person, right? Has anyone ever seen them passed out at the same D-list after party?

Anyone?

Quick Question…

October 5, 2010

So, last Monday night at 11:59 pm ET I was in my local GameStop waiting to purchase a copy of “Dead Rising 2” for the XBox 360. GameStop holds these late-night release events for losers like me who can’t wait until the following morning to get their grubby hands on the latest release titles.

As I was in line waiting to get my copy of zombie-smashing goodness I saw a father enter with his eleven-year-old son. That struck me as peculiar, seeing as it was late on a school night. Also, the father was clearly buying the game for the tyke. If you’ll look at the graphic at the top of this post, you’ll notice “Dead Rising 2” is an “M” rated game and boasts all manner of horror and sexual themes. (Which, to be honest, is probably why I was buying it.)

So my question is this; is that guy the worst dad of all time or the coolest dad of all time?
