If you would get offended by someone “liking” your Facebook status update, then maybe you shouldn’t be posting said update in the first place.

A Blockbuster Bankruptcy Announcement

leave a comment »

Crap. I hope the Blockbuster near me doesn’t go under. I go there a few times a year to stock up on $4 DVDs when they go on sale.

The once dominant Blockbuster Video filed for bankruptcy Thursday. It’s a sign that the way many Americans are consuming media is rapidly changing. But while that rental chain is struggling, a vending machine company rented out its one billionth movie early in September.

Then again, if the only reason I spend money with this company is when they are liquidating inventory, that might explain why Blockbuster is struggling.

Funny. I remember growing up people bitching about Blockbuster video driving out local video rental businesses. Makes me wonder what’s going to deep-six Netflix and those red DVD rental machines.

Doubling Down On The “Sex Sells” Idea Then And NOW

leave a comment »

I admit I don’t exactly follow the actions of the National Organization for Women, but have these feminazis ever complained about PETA using the sexuality of women to promote their causes?

KFC wants folks to watch its backside.

Or, more precisely, the backsides of female college students it’s recruiting to promote its hot new bunless Double Down sandwiches.

Women on college campuses are being paid $500 each to hand out coupons while wearing fitted sweatpants with “Double Down” in large letters across their rear ends.

The promo comes as KFC is in the doldrums domestically. The world’s largest chicken chain’s U.S. same-store sales fell 7% in the second quarter. Nearly all its growth now is in international expansion.

Last week, the chain confessed that more than six in 10 Americans ages 18 to 25 — the chain’s key demographic — couldn’t identify who Colonel Sanders was in the KFC logo.

Now, it’s turning to cute women parading around campus with “Double Down” emblazoned across their fannies.

The nation’s largest women’s group doesn’t like it one bit. “It’s so obnoxious to once again be using women’s bodies to sell fundamentally unhealthy products,” says Terry O’Neill, president of the National Organization for Women. What’s more, she says, KFC has forgotten something important: Women make more than half the decisions about what to eat for dinner.

Let’s see. What’s more “obnoxious” when using women’s bodies?

This…

Or this…

So I guess what NOW is telling us is that it’s OK to use a woman’s … assets … so long as it’s for the cause they deem worthy.

Tickle This, Katy

leave a comment »

Uh, OK.

Katy Perry’s cleavage is fine for Russell Brand—not so for Elmo and Sesame Street. The children’s show says it won’t air a taped segment featuring the “California Gurls” singer and Elmo. The pop star—who is known for her risque outfits—wore a gold bustier top as she sang a version of her hit “Hot N Cold.” But some felt it was too revealing for the kid set.

Sesame Street said in a statement Thursday that in light of the “feedback we’ve received” after the bit was aired on YouTube, they won’t include it on the show. While the show said it was still available on YouTube, it had been removed by the official Sesame Street YouTube channel. Other versions on YouTube have generated thousands of hits.

Well, like any bona fide pervert journalist, I have to see this evidence for myself and determine the risque-ness of Mr. Perry’s outfit.

What the hell did I just watch?

It’s been years since I watched “Sesame Street,” so I can’t compare Perry’s wardrobe to other human characters. If the show’s movers-and-shakers thought Perry’s funbags would be a distraction, then so be it. My question is why didn’t anyone from the show nip this in the bud when Perry arrived on the set? OK, so I can see why the male employees wouldn’t have said anything, but still. I also doubt it was Perry’s intention to corrupt the morals of today’s youth. Well, maybe that is her intention, but not with kids who still watch “Sesame Street.”

I have to admit, after hearing the actual Hot ‘n Cold song and previously listening to her California Gurls track, I have to admit I like Perry’s voice. And I have no idea why.

Oh God, I’m that old guy at the club.

Advice To A Younger Me

leave a comment »

So earlier this morning I thought to myself what advice my current-day self would have given the me of 15 years ago.

Other than a few job interview tips, I couldn’t think of a single thing at first. Please note I wasn’t including future Super Bowl winners, stocks to buy or anything like that.

After much thought, here’s what I came up with.

1) Be content with the three Star Wars movies you have already seen. Don’t ask for more.

2) I hope you enjoyed your time at the 1992 NLCS. You ain’t going to experience that feeling for quite some time.

3) Even though you’ll find out more gals found you attractive than your initial estimation of 0, you’re still a social retard and don’t even bother.

I went back and forth with Number 3. After all, had I applied myself I probably would have gotten laid a helluva lot more than I actually did. However, knowing me, I still wouldn’t have finished the deal even with nearly a generation’s worth of game in my back pocket. I was always freaked out of knocking up my partner. Uhhhh, hooray for morals?

Actually, this inability to understand the opposite sex had me boiling when I learned years later after my college stint that there were a number of ladies that had an interest in me. In this age of equality why didn’t they make the first move? Probably because they were just as messed up as me. Hooray for being young and dumb. Not sure what my excuse is now.
