OMG! I’m writing another blog? I AM writing another blog. AHH!
Just barely, though – I almost didn’t write a blog this week. Not because I can’t put words on the screen; that’s easy! Just check this out:
WORDS. WORDS. WORDSSSSSS.
Yep, I just did that. You hear that? That’s the sound of me patting myself on the back. Why does it sound like a dog crying? Well, my neck hurts, OK? So this is rather painful for me. I really need to stop impressing myself. Ow. Ow. Ow. I wish I wasn’t so awesome. Ow. Ow. Ow. Hmm… I got an idea: Maybe I should stop. OMG! Great idea! I’m SO SMART. That deserves another… Oh, crap…. Ow. Ow. Ow.
Enough of that nonsense. So I didn’t know what to write about tonight. And I got limited time left here at Starbucks. Which means I gotta blabber about SOMETHING. Whoa! Another great point worthy of a… Uh-oh. Err, I mean, BAD IDEA. BAD! BAD! BAD!
Yes, bad idea. Speaking of bad ideas, I recently finished listening to the audio book (and later watching) Ready Player One, a book about a nerd who’s so goddamn good at referencing shit, he prolly has permanent hand prints from self-back-patting.
Originally, I thought I kinda enjoyed the book, but after listening to this awesome podcast about how much it sucks (and later seeing the movie), I’ve realized the book (and the author) is garbage, like the kind found in a pail, possibly one with a kid inside. See what I did there? I could have wrote that crap.
One of my biggest gripes with the book/movie is the lack of importance or resonance given to the references. He just lists random crap without any sort of significance or emotional impact. So I thought I’d talk about one my biggest ’80’s influences and my all-time favorite movie: The Goonies. Let’s get into it!
