2889 - Brock Fails A Drug Test

Back in the day, we saw a well-built guy and thought he was a physical specimen that was larger than life. Nowadays, we see a well-built guy and think "Yeah, that guy's on steroids." Even if the guy is naturally built (if that's the proper word for it), people will immediately assume they're on the juice. And if drug tests turn out positive, people will cry foul and assume it's a cover-up.

So Brock Lesnar failed a drug test. Whatever happens to Lesnar now has yet to be determined, but I'm fairly certain that no matter what happens, "Steroid City, Bitch" is the three words I'd use to describe Brock in a nutshell. And even if he comes up clean as a whistle, it's sticking because that's all I got.

All things considered, it's safe to say that this puts a damper on any UFC aspirations Brock might have. And as far as WWE is concerned... like they fucking care what happens.

2888 - Pac-Man 2600 (Take 2)

A redo of an old 2010 review. I think this was posted on Dailymotion last year, but I'm not quite certain. Expect another old review from DM up on YT this Thursday.

2885 - Plug-And-Play NES From Nintendo Due In November

Maybe a mini NES will be a better buy than the Wii Mini.
Anyone remember the Wii Mini?
Anyone at all?

A plug-and-play NES console with 30 built-in NES titles, HDMI output, and suspending play functionality? And you can (possibly) use the included controller on the Wii (U) Virtual Console? That's actually pretty sweet. And the list of games included is nice, varied, and not strictly first-party. Mind you; there's a couple games I would rather have in there over others. Would've been nice to have Castlevania III in there to complete the trilogy or one of the Natsume titles like Shatterhand, Shadow of the Ninja, or the Power Blade games... toss in the Lost Levels instead of flippin' Ice Climber. But... baby steps.

NES plug-and-plays have existed before (in less official capacities and also, quite frankly, much shoddier build qualities), but an officially licensed one from Nintendo is a rarity. Who knows? It might do well for those who haven't dumped money into a Wii or a Wii U and just want a nice, convenient piece of nostalgia to play their old favorites. Or maybe some folks will just want the controller for nostalgia sessions on their Wii.

And please don't bother with the tired "emulators" route. The fact is some folks don't like or don't want to go that route and would prefer more official means. How many Sega Genesis plug-and-plays are floating out there and still making? The things obviously sell, so there's an interest.

Here's the full list for those who don't want to click the link above.

2883 - Brock Wins His Fight. My Reaction Summed Up In Five Words

I guess I can't get into the "real fights" like most other folks can. Man, that was just boring.

Oh, and Randy Orton is Brock's Summerslam opponent. And you know what that means?

She gets it.

2881 - WWE To Announce Brock Lesnar's Summerslam Opponent

Looks like I'll be taking a trip to "Early Bedtime City."

Doggy already has a head start.

2880 - The Dog Is Bored

From the archives, when Dog was younger and... sleepier.

She obviously hasn't had her morning bacon.
